I was born, grew up, and became incredibly stubborn about the things I believe in.

I was introduced to science fiction at a young age, and fell in love with it. I have had a longtime addiction to Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis, and all of the Star Treks (even the bad ones). And I have recently re-discovered an enjoyment of fan fiction. I hope you enjoy my contributions to the genre.

I also enjoy reading, crafting, cooking, and spending time with my "nuclear" family.

Summary: This is a "day in the life." As any military man will tell you: for every hour doing the fun stuff – chasing bad guys, being chased by bad guys, blowing shit up – there are one hundred hours worked in maintaining the status quo.

Summary: Sheppard and McKay go to Mall World, get kidnapped, beat up and rescued. A usual day at the office for them. This story brings back the same race of bad guys as in my story "No Good Deed", but is not a continuation of that story and you don't need to read it first.

Idle Hands by ga unicorn [PG-13]

Summary: Sheppard and McKay, by themselves, in an Ancient's lab in Atlantis. A recipe for disaster. This was written for the Sheppard_H/C Challenge #7. The prompts were: 1) "Where the hell are you going with that, Colonel?"; 2) element: fire; 3) theme: blood and broken bones. I think I covered it all.
