Moderation & Feedback

It’s true that I have a “positive” feedback policy and that I do screen the comments on this site. I do this because of the abuse I receive for writing slash not because I’m “over sensitive” or can’t handle critism. I don’t approve “critism” comments (though I’ve only gotten like 5 in the past year beyond people pointing out my grammar problems) because I don’t want the discussion that would result.

I want this site to be FUN because I have fun with it. Having big discussions about politics (or whatever angsty thing my fic might inspire) doesn’t appeal to me AT ALL.

I don’t require that anyone love my work. I just don’t want to hear about it on my own site if you hate it OR if you think I write badfic!, fluff, crack — whatever. I post my work for people to enjoy and if you don’t enjoy it– just don’t come back over here and read it anymore.

Here’s the thing– at one point I didn’t even have comments enabled on my site. I opened them up because of email feedback. And the only reason I allow them now is because I feel like my readers have created a community for themselves AND I’m open to answering questions about my fic and future projects.

I make jokes about feeding my ego with comments but let’s be real honest– you have to have a pretty damn healthy ego to create a site dedicated to your hobby, buy a domain name, and generally brag about the fics you post by placing notifications on LJ and yahoo groups.

I have a very healthy ego that hardly needs any help getting any bigger. Normally, my husband handles the ego maintenance. He’s excellent at it because he realized the pure power of my badassness from minute one!

I do write a lot of porn and no– I wouldn’t consider it “great literature”. Quite frankly, great literature bores the shit out of me and I sure as hell wouldn’t attempt to write it for FUN.

Additionally, and this is to address a few (cough) emails I’ve gotten recently. I don’t write “feminized” characters in a gay relationship because I think it’s STUPID to believe that when two men fuck that one of them has to be a “woman”. It’s backward, ridiculous, and quite frankly disgusting to see a male character acting like a weak-willed, whiny-ass girl in a story.

GAH! The “girl with a dick” syndrome drives me up the fucking wall but that is my opinion and I’m entitled to it. You don’t have to agree with it but I’d really rather not get another email from you (and you know who you are) trying to explain why I shouldn’t feel this way about it. I realize, truly, that my position upsets you and I’m genuinely sorry that I haven’t responded to your 15 emails that you’ve sent in the last 3 days but frankly you’re communication with me is starting to freak me the fuck out. Just sayin’.

In my spare time I write fan fiction and lead a cult of cock worshippers on Facebook. It's not the usual kind of hobby for a "domestic engineer" in her 30's but we live in a modern world and I like fucking with people's expectations.

  1. I am sooooo glad you don’t ‘feminize’ the guys. I’ve started to read too many of that kind of stories. I love your strong characters and I love how you can switch it around in different stories so one of the ‘good guys’ in one series can be a ‘bad guy’ in another.

    I keep telling people that the delete button on the keyboard is there for a reason. If you don’t like something, DON’T READ IT!

    I want to thank you for making your stories available to those of us who love them.

  2. I’m sorry that the stupid people have been acting especially stupid of late…. on the brighter note… I like all of your fics just the way they are (except for that Lorne/Rodney thing you wrote where John was with Cadman… I pretend that was some sort of experiment on your part..lol)

    so you just keep on doing what you been doing and to hell with the haters

    • Hey I feel real silly posting this here but, what Lorne/Rodney thing I thought that I’d read most everything Kiera wrote in SGA. I don’t remember that one and I don’t mind the pairing, so I would like to give it a chance.

    • This is a PS to my last post. It is the first time postting so I should mention how great I think the stories here are. You (Kiera) are one of the best writers I’ve come across in a while. I normaly find an author that I like and then they quit writing. I also think that your recs and those reced you are above par.

      PPS
      As for the grammer, from what I saw it was more miss spoken expetions and revers word oder in the sentance but I normally don’t notice them untill the third reading through and then it is just like “oh that should be this way” and then I’m on my way.

      • Its called Dark Places in the Soul….

        Like I said its very good…like all the things that Keira writes I just hope that this experiment is out of her system!

  3. I have yet to see a girl with a dick in any of your stories.

    Also, if you have as much fun writing your stuff as I have reading it, the world is a much, much happier place.

  4. Water off a duck’s back girl. People who nitpick and complain about *fantasy* stuff? Really? Are their lives THAT pathetic?? Feel sorry for them and then ignore, and take heart that for every hater you have hundreds more lovers (uh, in a non sexual way, of course). Keep up the awesome work and don’t let those jealous fools get to you!

    Peace,
    Melanie

  5. GO KEIRA!!! You are the most badass writer I know and I love you like that!!!

  6. I like your stuff the way it is. It’s fun and a bit of fantasy fulfillment.

    Write on! 🙂

  7. One of the reason’s I love your fic so much is the fact that your male characters seem and act, well, actually male…considering they are male and the majority of males in any fandom are characterized as being manly. Say, if you took, say John Shepherd and made him act like a girl, then he wouldn’t actually “be” John Shepherd from SGA. He would be completely out of character and the stories wouldn’t be interesting at all.

  8. Certain people are simply a certain kind of crazy. Ignore her, ban her, let her find something else to complain about.

    Heck, I’ll do it for you! 🙂

    You are GOOD, GOOD, GOOD at what you do. Your portrayal of the characters are excellent and there is absolutely no need to feminize men to make them gay. *yawn* Its been done. You give us hawt manly men and…*insert happy sigh*…those who do not like it can go read some girly men fic, I have some rec’s if you need!

  9. Thank God you don’t feminize the characters. The “chick with a dick” thing is absolutely batcrap insane. What the heck is interesting about a guy that doesn’t act like a guy? Glad to know you’re standing your ground on this and not letting a creepy otaku stalker tell you what to write. (Like you write anything but what you want tow write anyway. 🙂 ) Jeez. Can you filter the stalker out so you don’t get emails from that person anymore?

  10. I personally love the way you write your gay characters. All of them strong and yet sensitive and loving as well.

    And the way you write John is just awesome! So masculine, so strong and so much more… commanding I guess would be the best term for it.

    IT’s funny that you have gotten complaints that you don’t have feminized characters. Most of the complaints I read about slash fiction is that characters are too feminized.

    Some people are just weird, or never satisfied.

  11. I hate how much trouble you’ve had with commenters. If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.
    You’ve posted warnings all over the site ‘Beware: Gay Porn Ahead’ if they don’t want to read it no one is twisting their arms. Why do they waste their time? You who write it, and we who have an insane crush on your brain, obviously like what’s on offer here and you’ve said you approve comments with that kind of rudeness in them so what do they think they’re accomplishing?
    If I’ve said it once I’ve said a dozen times, you’re work is amazing. Part of that is the realism you use, like that a male/male relationship doesn’t require one of them to be “the girl”.
    You’ve made a hobby out of writing fanfiction that’s eloquent, powerful, emotional, and just plain hawt. We’ve made a hobby out of reading said fanfiction, fanning ourselves, and leaving starry-eyed reviews. The only bad here is the crap some people bring with them. As far as I’m concerned they really need to pack it up and go find somewhere else to play because this is your sandbox to do with as you please and some of us are having a grand old time.

  12. Honestly, anyone who thinks all lesbians are ‘butch’ and all gays are ‘fem’ really need to get out and meet more queers…and I say that as a queer woman, lol. I have pretty damn good gaydar and even I’m caught off guard occasionally by the (excuse the overused euphamism) rainbow of orientations within the LGBT community…not to mention the array within the straight community. 🙂

  13. I am so sorry that people feel the need to argue about your characters. I kinda really like the way you write them. As you put it so nicely before, if people don’t like what you write, they should write their own.

    If there is this compulsion to leave criticsm, ff.net has 15530 stories in SGA as of this morning, so concrit away. There are some truely bad ones out there where one could spent hours gleefully picking them apart if one is so inclined 🙂

    Or (badly starting a sentence with a coordinating conjunction) maybe you could point them to the fanficrant comm where they can vent all their frustrations with you not writing as you told.

    maybe you should ask your husband to spank you for being a bad bad girl 🙂

  14. You are AWESOME your work is AWESOME. I love the way you write. I think you capture the characters beautifully. Just ingore the weirdo.

  15. I love your fics because there are no sissy ass guys in it
    would so not want you to change anything.

    love your fics

    those that don’t should go else were

  16. No, you don’t write great literature – but you do write good stories and decent smut. 🙂 Speaking of grammar errors… do you want them pointed out in old stories? Can make notes as I shamelessly use editing as an excuse to reread everything… yet again.

    For feminized gays… that’s like one in the pair of lesbians has to be super-butch. Yes, it happens. No, it’s not necessary – and I think those individuals that are like that probably need a psych eval and might actually want gender reassignment surgery. *shrugs* Not my cup of tea, but then neither is homosexual acts (reading yes, doing no ;D ).

    Now slipping in a crossdressing scene on the other hand… can be either hot or hilarious. Although you pander to my kinks of toys and willing submission plenty, so not going to harp on it.

    *hums and goes off to reread… something. Probably Ties.*

    • Not so much for the grammar mistakes in my posted work. I don’t have the time to correct them.

    • “For feminized gays… that’s like one in the pair of lesbians has to be super-butch. Yes, it happens. No, it’s not necessary – and I think those individuals that are like that probably need a psych eval and might actually want gender reassignment surgery.”

      REALLY? Cause I don’t need a psych eval or want gender reassignment and I am a butch queer, dyke, lesbian… whatever.
      I get called sir frequently, have no problem wearing men’s clothes, play “uncle” to my nephews while my bro-in-law is deployed with the Navy, feel and look awkward in skirts and dresses, enjoy the blunt physical strength that my body is capable of, have more (traditionally) male thought patterns, often end up talking to the men at co-ed gatherings, and often take a more (traditionally) masculine role with my friends.
      However I AM female. I have cried myself to sleep when I have been called ‘sir’ one time to many in a day, felt isolated when all of my girly friend assumed I was not enough of a girl, am an Auntie to my niece and my nephews, have worn dresses and skirts, enjoy getting my toe nails painted, and have been known to actually style my hair before going out.
      I am what I am, comfortable with who I am, and have no desire to change. Some guys are fem, some gals are butch, and some are both depending on the day, the important thing is that we are accepted AS we are, without judgement, prejudice, or preconception.
      No body wakes up one day and happily embraces having an ’alternative’ sexual preference. The second you recognize it within yourself, a weight settles on your shoulders. Do I stay in the closet or do I ’out’ myself. Either way, misconceptions, ignorance, fear, hatred, oppression, and isolation are now a part of your life. And that weight is always there, some times heavier, sometimes lighter, but constant. Sure you are happy because for the first time everything fits into place and makes sense, but… people judge, every day. And those judgements can hurt or even kill.

      I wasn’t going to respond… but it had to be said.

      • Agreed. The fact that we as a society need to box people in is a holdover from our hunter-gatherer days. It should be recognized in a more universal way that people form a continuum of sexuality and gender, and that the latter is as much societally driven as part of our intrinsic natures. When a certain characteristic is assigned as “feminine” or a “masculine” in one society, it has certainly been assigned to the opposite in another. So, yes, there are some men who are “feminine” to my western eyes. Certainly, some (but not all) of them are gay. This does not mean that they don’t also have “manly” characteristics as well. Like K-lee above, I am a mix. I think in a more traditionally masculine way score in masculine rather than feminine ranges on sociology and psychology self identification tests, love tools and machinery, and hang out with guys a lot. On the other hand, I have extremely long hair, and wear skirts six days out of seven by personal preference.

        Of course, John and Rodney are not particularly feminine through a traditional western definition, and a hyperfeminization through fic of these characters is not what I come here for. :shrug: I’m picky with what I read, but I read pretty broadly across many fandoms. I like what I read here, and certainly have returned and re-read many times.

        • In college, you’ll all laugh, I actually tested closer to male than female on several personality inventories because of my views on sex and relationships. I told my professor that the instruments were sexist and victorian which she thought was pretty funny.

      • I’ve always believed the gender and sexual orientation were not always mutually exclusive. I knew a very attractive young man who was far more feminine than I in college that most of the guys we knew thought was gay. He was not gay. He got more women on campus than most of his friends COMBINED.

        Gender identification in this society is actually quite painful for a lot of people.

        For the record I don’t like to write whiny ass females either. I like strong people– no matter their sexuality.

  17. See, things like this make me angry. No one is forced to read a particular author’s work. In fact, there are several well known authors whose work I just don’t waste time reading for a variety of reasons ranging from not liking the fandom/pairing to the characterization and plot development or lack thereof. I don’t insult them with unsolicited criticism or whining about how they don’t write the way I want them to.
    The only real temptation I have to avoid is whining, pouting, or demanding because I want my favorite authors’ stories faster than they could possibly write them. ( I feel the same way about published work from people I love.)

  18. Love your work and the person that has been complaining about your characters needs to get a life, grow up or get some therapy, maybe all three. I love that your men are men and your women are strong without having to ‘have a dick’. Please keep writing and feeding our need for great SGA fics.

  19. Dear lady Keira,

    You are totally right to refuse critics and to use moderation on your site. If some people are so critical of your stories, why are they reading them ,sinsicroche ( french mild swearing , as I am a respectable older lady that loves m/m sex and moreso, the stories you write !!! ) ?

    I adore your stories. You are talented and you write for our pleasure. so please, dear lady , ignore the ignoramuses who spit venom because they can’t do . Remember: those who can, do ; those who can’t , criticise…

    Your french friend , Lise.

  20. I’m gonna agree with what everyone else said. And add… I love your home page. I read the rules for your site to my tall manly other half and he smiled and said “I like her! She has a point!” Your rules make me smile. Keep up the fabu writing!

  21. I don’t even get the chick with a dick thing. Are they saying you do – which would make me think they haven’t bothered to read your work in the first place – or are they saying they want you to? To which the only thing I can think is why would you ask for that when it would be so much easier and happier for everyone involved to just go find someone who already writes that. It must exist, everything does in the internet.

    Anyway, this line: I do write a lot of porn and no– I wouldn’t consider it “great literature”. Quite frankly, great literature bores the shit out of me and I sure as hell wouldn’t attempt to write it for FUN. was worth the price of admission. Yes, free, but I might have even paid for it.

    I tend to be a lurker myself, but if you’re getting bombarded with stupid mail it seemed like a good time to say hey, love your work.

    • Actually, his argument is that “gay men aren’t masculine” and that I shouldn’t write them that way. Yeah, I’m not even kidding.

      • *blinks* …are you serious? *rolls eyes* Don’t answer that. In response to the masculine comment, who defines “masculine”? If you like blood, guts, gor, and grunting during football games, does that make you masculine? If so, then a gay guy I know meets the definition. And while I’m thinking about blood, this same friend told me that the reason he doesn’t do women is that “I don’t trust anything that bleeds for a week and doesn’t die.” Yes, this caused a spit-take. So…what was your commentor saying about “masculine”?

        • OH you know– he says things like:

          “Gay men are inherently female” and “Gay men are either “top” or “bottom” and they NEVER switch so one must be more female” and my favorite from email number 10 was :: “Your stupid female fantasy of two strong, heroic men wanting to fuck each other is so wrong on so many levels I can’t even begin to explain why” — but he then he writes about 200 words on how wrong it is and why so obviously he absolute can explain why he feels this way.

          Email 15 was a list of “home truths” about “the gays” and a very detailed explanation as to why I was wasting my potential by writing “fag porn”.

          SMIRK.

          • I think you should post this list so all your readers can mock it. I can’t be the only one that needs a good laugh right now.

          • Yeah–that would be fun but I have a fairly large audience and his point of view just doesn’t deserve to have that kind of attention even if we’re mocking him because some of his “home truths” are horrific.

          • This is a good point. And unfortunately, the same people who post that sort of trash are also the ones who are too STUPID to understand sarcasm and mocking because they are just that ignorant.

          • Just even what you’ve quoted has me laughing. I’m sensing a bit of homophobia here and wondering why the hell this guy was even on your site. Hmmm, he must be questioning his own masculinity and sexuality. Poor thing. Bless his heart.

          • Oh, YOU MUST BE SOUTHERN!

            Southern woman do best the *sweet and polite* insult.
            …insult…insult…insult…”why, bless his heart.”

            and the really big insult needs sometimes to be followed by the much more powerful, deeply meaningful ending of,”…why bless his heart, I’ll pray for him.”

            ROFLMAO

          • I assume he has no problem with the lesbians in your stories.

          • Bwahahaha! I like your style, Melanie.

          • Good grief! If he’s that adament about gay men, I don’t want to imagine what he thinks about bisexuals. He needs to get out more.

            Just do what you do, hun. After all, you do it so well.

            Alynne

          • The thing that gets me is FIFTEEN EMAILS. I mean does this troll not have anywhere else to be or to be doing?

          • Wait. You write slash porn and you have a straight, male, closed minded homophobic stalker who has obviously never encountered a gay man.

            My question is, where do people find the time? 15 emails? To tell you how wrong you are? On a section of the population he’s obviously never met? When you’re writing *fiction* about *fictional* people in *fictional* situations.

            Seriously. Who has time for that?

          • It’s mind boggling really.

          • Oh DEAR God. Flabbergasted, the neighbors who helped raised me would take exception to that… and umm the sociologist in me wants to sit down and lecture him, but wait he’s most like a lost cause.

            If he has met any gay men it was probably like the one my neighbor’s sold their house to. He mowed the lawn in a speedo and pink fluffy slippers, I kid you not. Just thought the thread could use so humor…I sad thing is its a true story.

      • O.K. I AM a gay guy, and while I am a dork, I am defenitly not fem. That guy is weird(sp?)(& I have the SP of a five year old.).

        You DO write excelent literature, it is full of depictions of healthy relationships.

        In short, I’d pay for this stuff.

  22. See, things like this make me angry. No one is forced to read a particular author’s work. In fact, there are several well known authors whose work I just don’t waste time reading for a variety of reasons ranging from not liking the fandom/pairing to the characterization and plot development or lack thereof. I don’t insult them with unsolicited criticism or whining about how they don’t write the way I want them to.
    The only real temptation I have to avoid is whining, pouting, or demanding because I want my favorite authors’ stories faster than they could possibly write them. ( I feel the same way about published work from people I love.) But since I am a grown woman, I suck it up and don’t email you Keira asking if you could pretty please post a new installment.
    Now I find out that someone is bugging you, not as I would to write faster, but to change your characterization. What? NO! We love your strong, masculine characters and how heroic, badass, and awesome these men are even at their most vulnerable and emotionally honest.
    Seriously, why is this person wasting the time and thought that you could be using to build your amazing worlds for us? Just because the idiot writes does not require you to listen to dreck.

    Your story, your world, your way (please)

  23. First – I love your characterizations and that the guys are guys.
    Second – I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever understand why individuals need to give negative feedback or e-mail authors in order to “help them out”. Why do people do that? I hardly have enough time to write positive feedback but I try to at least sometimes because someone took time to write a story and I enjoyed it. Why does anyone think an author wants their negative opinion or their critiques on how to write a better story. I don’t get it. I do a stupid newsletter at work sometimes and even say “I don’t want to hear about any errors” because really – not going to redo it and whats the purpose of telling me but to annoy me. : ( (Anyway, But you – thanks for writing. I adore it to giant levels of adoredness)

  24. The reason why we like two men together? Because it’s two men together. If I wanted a girl and a guy, I would read that! I love that you make your men are indeed men. I like that in a story.

  25. This is YOUR little corner of the internet and if some people don’t like that you screen your comments and don’t allow negative comments to be seen, too bad. That is your prerogative. They do not have to read your work. Personally in general I try not to make negative comment and if I feel I have to comment negatively on something I try to see if there is some way to do it privately

  26. Oh yeah, and I am going to add to what someone else said earlier:

    Your John absolutely ROCKS.

  27. I beieve you can’t please anyone but yourself. If you write what makes you happy they will read it……and if they don’t like it…..there is plenty of media to choose from………

  28. You are a Goddess in my opinion and those who think other wise can bite me. But they are free to have there own opinion just to keep it to them self. And stalking Keira should be left to those of us that love and worship her.

  29. You know… there is a ‘Back’ button on a web browser… The moron brigade needs to remember how to use it.

    If you don’t agree with something, leave. It is that simple and that easily done.

    And anything that isn’t being nice? Email the author and do it in private, it is only right.

    ~L

  30. I agree that your John is great but I also love how strong your Rodney is. He lets John take care of things for him but he is perfectly capable of taking care of himself. I also really like the respect that most people have for both John and Rodney. They totally deserve it LOL

    Also I’m sorry people have been leaving critical reviews. I don’t understand it. I admire you and all other fanfic writers for posting your work for others to read even if I may not personally agree with something.

    I think your writing is wonderful. When I’m having a bad day I come here and read something because its guaranteed to make me feel better.

  31. I’m sorry you have to deal with people like that. Some people feel that only their opinion matters and if you disagree they think they have to “educate” you (or in the case of some religions “save” you) Once you realize what kind of person they are you should probably block their e-mails as they are so convinced they need to “fix” you that they won’t stop as long as you feed their egos by responding.

  32. This is your site. What part of your don’t people get? Argh!

    Now, me? I’m grateful for every story, update, post…anything you give us. *sweet smile* You and your work make my life soooooo much better, and I’m not even kidding at all. You and your work are like a drug to me. A really, really, really good drug. Mmmmmmmmm…

    Thanks for everything!!!

    *hugs*

  33. Oh well people are alowed their opinion, but its just that, they should keep it theirs and not come back if they dont like it!

    I stumbled apon your site around Sep last year and i got hooked!! I came on reading your Ties that bind series and ended up reading everything on your site with in 2 weeks 😀 and i didnt even know what Sentinels were and i read all your fics.

    I find sites I dont like and i just dont go back.

    And keep going! I cant wait for your next update!! And ya it give me a bit of fantasy that i sometimes lack in my world.

    So Thanks!

  34. yes yes yes bad people stupid and should culled to smarten the herd. whatever. WRITE DAMN YOU! lol. i’m sorta rabid for your stories… and i lurk over this site at least 3 times daily for any updates… i sorta like a bad yaoi crack-ho. and please, the only ones who want girl-dick characters are closet cases. we ignore them. they are bore. now then. WRITE *flails wildly* ^__^

  35. I started writing a rant about small minds and wasting their time, but then I decieded I’d rather not add any more negativity to your site. I love your site. I love your attitude and I adore your position on the main page. (Someday I will buy my own happy place too!)

    The main reason why I love your stories – you let the guys, be guys. I’m sure Sheppard and McKay thank you for that too!!!!

    Also, I don’t like ‘great’ lit. I do adore good fic. You do good fic like a pro! 😉

  36. I love your stuff. This is your site and you should control it however you want. I say that anybody that doesn’t like what you do should go someplace else. We get this great fiction for free, about characters we like, with action, adventure, love, danger, sex, and all the good stuff and if you want to keep any feedback to yourself, that is more than fair.

    I usually read to enjoy, not review. Whenever anyone goes to the effort to review, you are in NO Way obligated to post it to YOUR site.

    Just ignore the BS, and keep sharing your lovely work with us lurkers who love you.

    Billie

  37. Excuse me while I just chortle merrily away at some degenerates’ complete stupidity! Can they PLEASE remove themselves from the gene pool as quickly as possible, idiots’ swim hour is over!

    I’m not entirely sure, but I think there may be a warning on like the FIRST PAGE that readers come to when visiting you site, warning them that if they are clearly moronic enough not to understand that you are writing stuff that’s tailored to your view of how things should be then they (the moronic reader, that is) should exist *elsewhere*. Preferably not in your lair where you are god of all you survey…surely that IS the point of owning your own webspace?

    Regardless, I admire your bravery to keep writing when people criticise you, first hand knowledge says it can be a difficult thing to do even with one bad email, never mind several. /Shrug/ you’re probably made of sterner stuff than me.

    Well, anyway, I certainly love your characterisations and have a preference for men who don’t cry like babies from papercuts. Although I do admit to enjoying the odd little angst/hurt/comfort fesdt, but who says that can’t be manly too? You certainly manage to accomplish it with a certain amount of ease!

    Whoops, risking a long comment again (I have an inherent problem with shutting up, gags quake with terror at the sight of me), I’ll dive out of here and actually get some sleep!

  38. While I’m really sorry that some people can’t respect boundaries (I mean you are clear enough on your rules, so what the heck?) I have to say this posting and the commentaries will brighten my whole day!

    @EmruasCat – I wasn’t prepared for your comment and had to clean my monitor after…

  39. I don’t comment much but I thought i should take to time to tell you that your fics are awesome. I love that your male characters are male. I think you do an great job with that. I really like the realities you create too. I look forward to each and every update. I totally understand your comment policy. How someone can complain about something they don’t have to read and aren’t paying for is beyond me. You just keep on being your badass self. I also want to say that those emails sound scary. that guy sounds like a wacko.

  40. So this guys *reads* your stories, and that is no small feat seeing as you can’t stumble across 100 thou or so of words, then says he has issues with them? Maybe something in your stories hit too close to home with him.

    Just saying, I love your work (well duh!) but I also really like the community here on your website. After a long day it’s nice to come back and go through the latest comments and whatnot, they always bring a smile to my face. So, thank you.

  41. I love your stories and love the men you write aabout. Ties that Bind is very hot and sexy. Thank you

  42. wow good rant! I’m behind you all the way, on the way you write characters and it’s too bad that you’re being harassed. well you have a bunch of us who adore your work the way it is!!!

  43. *winks*

    On behalf of chicks with dicks everywhere, I have to say I’m not feeling the love.

    I mean, I really used to like it when the boys would start playing ‘mine’s bigger than yours’, but only because I could say that (some of) mine were bigger than all of them. And mine came in fashion colours, to suit my mood and my wardrobe!

    *waves a pinkie at your narrow minded correspondent*

    I’d say we have a case of overcompensating happening here. Alas, it’s all too common, and I doubt he’ll ever deal with it. So don’t waste your time, although I have to agree with *pause to scroll* EmruasCat – one can find a perverse sort of entertainment in it.

    The chick-with-a-dick phenomenon (versus geriatric kinksters with a fondness for strap-ons) irritates the hell out me because even if those characters were written as *female*, they’re the wimpy, whiny sort of fictional female that makes us all grind our teeth. In real life, I don’t know anyone over the age of 16 that behaves as the allegedly male characters do. It’s all very odd. I mean, face it. In real life, most women are consumately pragmatic. Besides, as Heinlein said – any woman fighting for equality simply lacks ambition.

    Ahem.

    So, I vote for ammending the phrase from ‘chicks-with-dicks’ to ‘chicks-with-dicks-unless-it’s-a-strap-on-in-a-suitable-colour’.

    *doing the geriatric fangirl chairdance of glee*

    Alas, like your characters, I find that my back and my knees are less forgiving of all night romps these days.

    *eyes my reciprocating saw*

    *gives you my very best sweet lil ole lady smile*

    *toddles off to read some more smut*

  44. I just want to say THANK YOU!!!!
    I am a new visitor to your wonderfully wicked world and more of a lurker than poster, I found your wonderful “What might have been” series, after reading multiple times I decided to give your other stories a go. While initially cautious with “Ties that bind” (BDSM stories not usually thing my thing)I figured if I didn’t like it, easy I just won’t click that link in the future, problem solved. Then I read the first part and fell instantly in love!! So much that I called in sick that day to stay home and read it (bad me I know) Basically every reason why this person has issues with your work, is why I love and adore it. The hot man on man sex is a sinful bonus!! I’m sure this person isn’t the first you’ve had complain, nor will he be the last as there is still no law in place regarding stupid people breeding. And unfortunatly these kind of people ignore the rules and push their opinions anyway. But thankyou for your amazing work and if this stupid person emails again maybe add their email to a mailing list for gay porn.
    Rant finished (goes to relurk)

  45. Please say thank you to your husband for keeping your ego healthy, I am sure it is a great contributer to your wonderful stories. I check my email every day to see if there is news from you, every one of your stories have made my day at some point, and I have a few choice ones that I read when I am feeling low. Between you and Xanthe the world have become a much more interesting place!

  46. I think we need to remember that people are stupid and fanatics a real problem. The stupid one need to understand that, even if everyone is entitled to his idea, nobody can force ideas on others. If he doesn’t like your work then he can stop reading it.
    We like what and how write that’s all that matters.

  47. i love your work so if anyone start bitching tell them to fuck of and go some where else

    sorry about the languages but people like that anoy me it like why do they come here just to complain.
    imean don’t they have a life

  48. 20 mails without any reply? Quite persistent, this fellow… also, trying to tell someone that their fantasy sucks *because* it depicts strong personalities? Huh.

    Well, I’m just gonna chime in with the rest of the positive feedback: Don’t expend too much energy on the troll, please? You and us Keira- followers will surely all be happier if you put the offending mails on the spam filter and devote time to writing more, more, more of your truly addictive fiction instead :o).

    *gets on with the nervous nailbiting, patiently waiting for “A lovely agony”*

  49. I don’t understand why this guy is even reading your stuff. If he wants to read about feminin men, why is he reading a SGA fanfiction sight? Your John Sheppard is a man. Did this person never watch the show? You just keep doing exactly what you are doing, your loyal fans are right here with you.

  50. I only have one complaint about these stories… they don’t get updated fast enough. *grin* I understand you can only write as fast as you can come up with ideas and write inbetween all of the other important things one does have to do in life.
    I keep rereading what is here, and enjoying it A LOT!!!!!!
    As far as the whiny stalkerish idiot, it obviously needs to get a life. If what you are writing offends it, why is it reading it? There is so much other stuff to do on the web.
    There are far too many stories where one of the guys is made soft and feminine, which makes the fanfic nothing at all like the character from what ever fiction it was based on, and quite a few ‘authors’ stuff I don’t even bother to read.
    Keep doing what you are doing, and thanks so much for it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

  51. Oh, for pete’s sake. Look, mister, have you ever heard the following phrase: “Don’t like? Don’t read!”

    Seriously, while I might make an utter nuisance out of myself trying to get further into the nitpicky details of your universe, I do NOT approve of that kind of criticism, especially of free fiction. And most especially of your fiction, which is so well written I actually started watching the Sentinel, with SGA next up!

  52. Keira: I love this site. Just saying. And I especially love the attitude, the “Oh, if you don’t like it, go somewhere else, this is my place and I pay for it so scram!”. It’s refreshing. And totally spot on.

    Please keep the comments open, I like to see what others like, and often they point out stuff that I didn’t think of at first.

  53. I confess I am one of these lurkers who almost never comment but your work is one of the rare cases I do have something to say about:

    Since I first stumbled upon your site last December I have read every single story multiple times (currently finishing What Might Have Been – again!). Yes, there are grammatical errors and other small mistakes but I have to say that I can’t but admire anyone who can write not just one but several long stories of quality (which yours certainly have) simultaniously without mixing everything up. Myself, I am happy if I get the occassional poem done 🙂

    My favorite of your stories is Ties That Bind and I am really looking forward to reading more about Gerard de Sade and Dato’ Raja especially. Hopefully, John and Rodney do get to have a joint session with one (or both?) of them 🙂 And I can’t wait to see the asshat get his just dessert – picturing him meeting Gerard and/or Dato’ Raja has given me some wonderfull dreams. *evilchuckle*

    Could you be persuaded to write an What Might Have Been interlude about Ian’s time at OTS, his coming out to his comrades and so? I like the guy, can’t help the impression that he is of quite some importance in your story line.

    And I wonder what Jim and Blair would say if they were to visit Atlantis? *laugh*

    Anyway, as long as you keep writing and have fun doing it – others should either keep their tongues leashed or not read what they don’t like. And if they can’t do so tell them to try and write better stories before their open their mouths!

    Cheers, Shira

  54. Okay, time for the good stuff…

    ::hands you bourbon and cheesecake::

    Unfortunately, what you are seeing is exactly why I don’t share my writing with the people I know and work with. There are a hand-selected few, but generally? I write “romance” and “fan fiction” and let them assume it’s gen or het instead of slash. I have a professional job I love in a fairly conservative community and while I hope I have earned a certain level of credibility, I’m not going to strain that.

    So you, and my flist, are my audience. I understand the utter frustration of having a stupid person like that trying to rationalize their own demons by taking it out on you.

    Know that we are here for you, rant at us all you like…. we will keep each other sane!

    ::smishes you::

  55. “Your stupid female fantasy of two strong, heroic men wanting to fuck each other is so wrong on so many levels I can’t even begin to explain why”

    Wow. He actually said that?! What a monumental asshat. What the frilly heck was he doing on your site then, if that’s the way he thinks? If he was looking for limp-wristed nancy boys, your work is the very antithesis of where to find them! Which, incidentally, is why the rest of us all think you’re brilliant. 😀

    But you, know, that’s cool – not everyone likes the same thing. Here’s a radical new theory I’ve been working on, though: If you don’t like the way the author presents the characters, then go read something else.

    Crazy, right?

  56. The gay guys I know, well, you wouldn’t know they were gay unless they told you or talked about their boyfriends. They don’t fit the ‘stereotypical’ gay man. They don’t ‘swish’, have limp wrists, talk with a lisp and aren’t remotely feminine.

    P.S. 20 emails and you haven’t responded to any? That’s getting into creepy, stalker territory.

  57. I’ve deleted a few really screwball comments fro my site too, I just don’t need the vitriol spewed in my direction, so I know where you’re coming from. I don’t mind genuine concrit, or suggestions as to how they would like to have seen something done differently, but the well and true flamers can just piss off. Who needs the grief?

    lol I do have a special scrapbook of particularly special flames I’ve received. I take it out when I need a chuckle. I mean really – one of them is a half page rant about how I didn’t label a particular slash fic as bestiality when I had one of the characters adopt a puppy. Real wingnuts! hehehe

  58. Hmm, I wonder if the moron will read any of these comments? Actually, scratch that, I couldn’t care less! I agree with everything written above – you rock, your characters rock, ignore the idiots! Thank you very much for creating your little corner of the internet – it’s one of my favorite places to go 🙂

  59. Damn, this guy sounds like he needs serious mental adjustment.

    I’ve just spent a nice afternoon in a cafe, with two of the most buffed, manly gay guys you could imagine. I’m still giggling at the sight of both of them trying to be ‘femme’ all over the mall after reading this post. And, yes, they do read the site. I won’t repeat the ‘loud, and public’ comment that made me spit vanilla mochachino all over the table; but it involved insufficient lube and large phallic objects inserted in places your stalker would probably disapprove of.

  60. so I don’t normally comment although I am OBSESSED with your work. As a fan who wants your work to continue I thought I should speak up. I come from a family of cops and just want to throw out there this advice: trust your instincts! This guy puts you on edge even via email so save the emails as proof and take action if you think it’s necessary. Sometimes people write it off as no big deal and that could be dangerous. Say stay don’t change cause I for one love your writing and characterizations!

    • that last line was suppose to be stay safe not say stay 🙂

    • I completely agree, Brynn. A friend of mine had a stalker problem. It started out small and she laughed it off, but thankfully it was handled before anything got out of hand. Having the evidence (letters and emails) made dealing with law enforcement easier.

      Trust your instincts and keep the emails/other evidence of his overly obsessive behavior.

  61. (sigh)

    I’m sorry to hear that you’ve been getting enough negative feedback that you needed to post something like this.
    I love reading your work and I like your characterisations, I really dislike hearing ANY character traits labeled as exclusively feminine or masculine. Something I like in your writing is that you write people as people, regardless of gender.

    Unlike some others who have commented above, I do know some gay guys who ‘swish’ (actually, I know straight guys who people think are ‘girly’ too), and I fail to see how this makes them less masculine. I’m pretty sure that they’re still men (you can tell by the way that they have dicks).
    Nothing says more about someones strength of character than their ability to be unashamed of who they are.

    I’m glad that you are unashamed of your writing and not put off by people should clearly be spending a little more time examining their own motives.

  62. Keira,

    Great stories with wonderful fully developed characters. The fact that these characters are this way is part of what makes your stories so good.
    If I don’t like an author’s stories I just don’t go to that web site again or don’t read anything more by that particular author.
    Looking forward to further updates.

  63. Keira, I don’t comment often but I love your work. You give us hours of enjoyment — for free — and all you ask is some praise. It’s a bargain!

    Your email stalker sounds like he has a few unresolved issues….maybe he should shut the F** up about what other people do and how they should be and work on accepting himself.

    Stay safe and healthy and thank you again for your wonderful stories.

    –Deb

  64. I was afraid from your title you were going to write in moderation – glad that’s not the cause. Sorry people have to be ugly. Hope this doesn’t slow down the updating!

  65. I’m a serious lurker but just had to reply. You are a fantastic writer and I am always left wanting more! New updates are always greatly appreciated and eagerly read.
    I’ve heard of a lot of author’s who have given up writing because of people like this.
    No one should ever give up something they love just because of idiots!
    PLease just keep on writing your fabulous characters and I’ll keep reading. Thanks love Freedom

  66. But if they were feminized, they wouldn’t be the guys we love (and love to picture having Really Hot Gay Sex)! For the record, I love your stuff, and without series like The Awakening, I wouldn’t be writing the NCIS fic that I am over on LJ. So. Thank you. Keep up the wonderful work. And thank you for sending me to my ‘happy place’ so many many times! 😀

  67. Seriously? If he thinks gay guys are just weak, weepy women with a dick why is he even reading your stories?

    Sounds to me like he’s so far in the closet he can see Narnia.

  68. First off – you are a brilliant author and I admire you for the universe you have created and have made your own. I do happen to disagree with you on some things though… Great literature CAN contain porn, but its the other way that makes trouble (pure porn is rarely interesting in the long run)… but your stories aren’t pure porn either – its more like a story with the benefit of sex descriptions. I do admit that there’s some things about your stories that bother me – but in the end that is my opinion and not yours. The whole ‘no criticism’ issue is understandable given the way things often blows completely out of bounds as more and more people gets involved in a discussion(wince). If a comment are neither positive nor constructive… I do agree with the blockage 100%… Even though I do be sorry that you have to read through everything… is probably a lot of comments you’d rather not read…
    When that is said I do be a big fan of constructive criticism but prefer it being under ‘author only’… Well – you mentioned some people posting criticism on the page… – if I was one of those few – Sorry (just in case – better to say it once too many than one too few).

    Now that that is over with – well – your site happen to be one of the author pages that I check regularly – and if that doesn’t say a lot about you as an author I don’t know what does.(I love the Ties that bind Images btw – can’t wait for the next story – any story actually:P)

  69. *Grinning at Azure’s comment* and wondering if he needs a door handle to open it or a crow bar to pry it open.
    Said individual should probably be awarded the “The Kavanagh Award” award (that’s the one where any individual has failed to even reach moron).
    Keira this is your world we just get to reap the benefits of it and thank you for letting us.

  70. Well first off – your site, your stories, your rules. If they don’t like what your write or how you write they should exercise their right to leave. The rest of us will not miss them. For those who are upset by some error or other, I suggest you download that story, make what you think are necessary corrections and read them that way. I have discovered that when you read stories repeatedly your mind makes automatic corrections (I know it’s scary but also kinda neat).
    I don’t know if they have really gotten laws in place for cyber bullying or stalking – it runs rampant out there partiuclarly in schools. So I don’t know what the legal definition of cyber stalking would be. That being said, 20 emails when the first one wasn’t answered sounds like a reasonable definition to me. This guy has some issues that he needs to address somewhere other than your site. I know that Ian was deep in the closet with the door closed but this poor guy is apparently in a closed bank vault and the combination has been lost or thrown away. Sad but you need to do whatever you can to protect yourself – we love you and want you to be healthy and productive for many more decades. Barb

    • 26 and counting. I’ve never replied to one– beyond posting on my site to tell him to stop. I have tracked his IP address and know where he is mostly — like the fact that he’s living in Seattle, Washington and that he sends a lot his emails from his place of work which I know the name of because I’m not exactly the idiot this guy thinks I am. And also because my Google-Fu is fierce I know the name of his boss cause they have a kickin’ website (nice public domain) with emails and lots and lots of phone numbers.

      Additionally he finds you guys infuriating and it pisses him off that there are no emails posted with your comments.

  71. I’ve always had the philosophy that the world is filled with idiots and if you let their opinions color your actions you run the risk of joining their ranks

  72. I didn’t know that girls have dicks…hmm… I learned something new today! 😉

    Whatever – a feminized Rodney, John, Lorne, Ronon, Zelenka, Carson, etc. – makes no sense – and is not needed. There are plenty of women that can be feminine – or not – whatever.

  73. A long time ago someone gave me a piece of advice about creative writing: ‘If you aren’t pissing someone off, you aren’t doing it right. Keeping everyone happy simply means your are too cautious, and untrue to yourself.’

    You, dear Keira, are definitely doing something right. Your writing is delicious, provocative and obviously satisfying to your legion of fans. Please please please keep enjoying your writing – and sharing with those of us who love your work!!

    Oh, and your husband should definitely get online and ruin the credit ratings of those pathetic whinging emailers. 😉

    All the best
    Freya

  74. i agree with freya,cant please everybody,but judging from this response your writing pleases a hell of a lot of people

    this guy…freaking loon…needs therapy..you dont pick a fanfic writer to have your homophobic freak out to,complete nut job.

    report him get him censored or restraining order,need jerks like this to go the hell away.or just shoot him like ronon would.

    keira as stated by me previously,your stories cheer me up every time i reread them.

    and my gay friend alan,totally normal guy,wonder if the stalker thinks all gay men have to raving queens,is he repressed or just too stupid to live?

    be a roman….nil carborundum illegitimis[dont let the bastards grind you down]

  75. Chicks with dicks is a totally different genre and I don’t enjoy it so I don’t read it. Go figure.

    You are wonderful. Your characters are amazing and true to life and your scenarios are loving and mature and sometimes twisted and sick in the very best way.

    Thank you for creating and sharing and continuing even though creepy stalkers persist in peeing in your pool.

  76. Wow – he has way too much time on his hands. I love your stories and am just thankful you share them. I know several gay men and none of them would fall under the “feminized” banner, this guy needs to get out more and meet people. Again, thanks for sharing your wonderful words 🙂

  77. Keira,

    I love your work, and like others have said, I would pay for it. I’m glad you’re here.

    Karen

  78. As with all the comments above, just wanted to let you know I love your work. As you say on your home page – you pay for the site so you get to do whatever the hell you want with it! He really does need to get a life.
    I really hope we are pissing him off with our comments about people who are gay not being feminised — he’s probably looking around his workplace wondering who could be gay……beware – they are out to get you!!!
    LOL, Booffra

  79. Keira

    At risk of saying what everyone else has I love your stories. I have spent most of the last three years in bed after multiple operations and even at my lowest point they have had the ability to brighten my day.

    Your site is one of the first I visit every day to see if you have added something new. I am truely sorry that you have had narrow minded people try to make you feel like what you are doing is wrong. I love writing startrek myself and while I dont think im anywhere near the league of your writing .. I love the ability it gives to lift someone out of how that feel at that moment in time.

    Alex

  80. I have a comment meant for the troll that’s e-mailing you. I know he’s reading this (and probably foaming at the mouth about now).

    Dear Troll, The true definition of a man is someone that is kind, faithful, upstanding. One who stands up for whats right no matter the cost. A true heart, protector, and shoulder to lean on in times of need. One who always has a kind word and never hurts another through actions or speech. His sexual orientation has nothing to do with this. He loves who he loves. He is who he is and makes no excuses for it.

    A person that hurts through any means is not a man. He (or she) is a small minded person that tears down others to make themselves feel better about their own faults. All your doing is showing everyone just how pathetic you are.

    Bless your heart, I’ll pray for you.

  81. A comment to you dear Keira,

    Your stories are lovely. They show so much love and caring. I’ve read every John and Rodney story available at Wraithbait and I enjoy your stories better then almost all of them. Few authors entice me into a story as well as you do. As others, my only complaint is that life takes you away from writing as much as I would want, lol. Please do not ever stop writing. Our world would sorely miss you.

  82. Dear Keira,

    As Radek Zelenka would say “Do not bother yourself with people who are so full of themselves that have to inform everybody of their negative opinions.”
    I’ve started to read stories on fanfiction.net to better understand language and because I just love Stargate. Then I moved to Wraithbait and Area52 and through them I found your page. Your rules are simple and as so many nice people said before me – we read your stories because we love them. Ignore these who just jealous that you have so many fans and readers. Don’t you dare to stop writing! 😉

  83. Oy-I read all through the comments and he reminds me of the California politician that was adamantly (and negatively) against gays-then just recently came out.

    Anyway-I ~adore~ your work.

    Write what you love,sweetie. Ignore the ignorant.

  84. You’re Badassness is AWESOME!

    Ignore anything that says otherwise 🙂

    Seriously though, I am addicted to reading and will read anything and everythign that I can get my hands on. But fanfic in general and your in particular, I would happily say that I am obessesed over. Your work is truly that awesome – so much so that when I went out of country and internet was iffy more often then not – with your permission – I copied and saved everything of yours to a thumbdrive. As for any complaints and comments that you might get – ignore them or tell them to write thier own fic, post it on the web and then read all the reviews that they get both good and bad, just to have them see how it feels.

    As for the character complaint – your story=your rulese. If had wanted to write John or Rodney as a whiny sissyboy then you would write it like that but you didn’t.What I like about yourJohn Sheppard is that I can connect him with the SGA John Sheppard and to a point I can connect with him as a person. It is this connection that I like to grab onto as a reader.

    I’ll repeat – You’re Badassness is AWESOME!

  85. I like your guys. I like that you don’t feminize them. And I am eagerly looking forward to the day when you allow your version of Tony to adorn our screens as we read the adventures he has. Well, and the porn. The porn’s just fun. Though the non-porn is fun to. Can he just come out to play? Pretty please? I can post him pics of the Camaro that showed up in the first transformers movie. I parked next to one once. I think I still have them. 😀

    ROFL, oh my goodness! That comment made me laugh so hard my family asked what’s up. I completely agree with the sentiment. I went and did the whole Masters in English and read all that great literature. The modern fiction, the flash fiction, the poetry and so on and so forth. The plots were idiotically simple. I say that with a straight face because I read at most 20 or so pages of each of the assigned texts and yet I was said to have a clear grasp of the various interpretations of the plot and that my analysis was well done. The fact I could do that repeatedly really, really bugged me.

    I’d get in trouble for fantasy and sci-fi elements in my own writings at times because they weren’t considered valid aspects of writing. And I read my classmates pieces that were supposedly valid literature. At times I could honestly say I’d read teenage fic writers doing their first story who had a better grasp of writing than my supposedly older and more learned classmates whose work I was paying to read. Now some of my classmates were stunning writers. I loved their works and the ability to read them in process.

    The only aspect of the whole degree in which the Great Literature was fun was when we read the Orlando Chronicles like Orlando Furioso and its sequels. As well as The Faerie Queene. I quite literally fell in love with The Faerie Queene. Besides this love for that one grouping of books, the only thing this degree left me with is a decided unwillingness to write any of these Great Literatures because I did them for four years and they bored me. Unless my writing entertains me, I see no reason to come up with a plot for it, much less write it. Though this does mean I can come up with the kookiest things, like a Star Trek/Smurfs crossover. True, I was on cold meds at the time, but just contemplating the idea is still utterly hilarious. Don’t you agree?

    • The last three paras were supposed to be in response to this section from you. The Blockquote thing defeated me.

      I do write a lot of porn and no– I wouldn’t consider it “great literature”. Quite frankly, great literature bores the shit out of me and I sure as hell wouldn’t attempt to write it for FUN.

  86. Just keep doing what u do (and after reading your post I have no doubt that you will!!)

    And I really, REALLY love what u write (I have alredy lost the count on how many times I read all your fics – last time I remember it was 5 but there were sooooo many more tines since!!)

    There will always be jerks everywhere (empirical evidence gathered during my brief 18 years of existence) but u r just to awesome to bother (yes I know that I am feeding your already overly healthy ego but I like praising people that deserve, so please indulge me).

    Keep the badassness – it just makes your stories way much fun to read!!

    One last thing – please, do not EVER stop wrinting^^

  87. In all honesty, Ties that Bind and Sentinels of Atlantis has become personal cannon. As much as I loved SGA, I find your tales to be far more entertaining. Why can’t your work be real!!!????* wails at the unfairness of life and fiction*

  88. Your site, your stories, your choice on how you want to handle comments. Let the naysayers be banished elsewhere. Go you! 🙂

  89. I do hope after seeing how we all don’t agree, not care what he think, that you stalker has finally left you alone. In the hopes of cheering you up, I finished a bit of art for you. I hope it makes you feel better. 🙂

  90. I can`t believe what I`m reading here. The only thing to say about it is don`t like don`t read!!! I really like your storys and feeling like a child beneath the christmas tree when something new is up. 😉

  91. People can be real idiots. I admit that I won’t read your Ties series because BDSM is squicky to me, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to bitch and moan and yell at you for writing something I don’t like. I don’t know about you, but when I write fic, I write it for me, not for anyone else. I write to put the scenes and fantasies in my head into words. If others like what I write, that’s great. If not, well they’re entitled to that opinion, but it doesn’t give them the right to denigrate me because my writing doesn’t appeal to them. Anyone who thinks otherwise is a moron. It’s your site, your creations, so do what you want with them and ignore the naysayers and weirdos.

  92. hey HEY, uhh this isn’t really about what you posted, but I really had to poke you with the thought.

    have you seen the 2009 Star Trek movie? …and maybe… you might have gotten a bug to make John and Rodney in Star Trek world??? …..and John does have pointy ears… and… hey! Vulcans didn’t do hot a job raising half humans…. maybe it would be logical that John being illogical would put a wall between him and family? And the whole mind meld thing… totally would be like having your mind go explody if you did it with Rodney…. so, ummm… *plops plot bunny on you* …bye! *runs away*

    • Dude. I’ve already got that plot bunny and it’s HUGE. It goes like this:

      John is a half-Vulcan (mother– father is human). He was raised on Earth by his human father and it’s been ten years since the Nero incident. Captain John Sheppard is granted his first command– the Captaincy of the USS Pegasus for a scientific and exploration mission. Lorne is First Officer and McKay is the Chief Scientist. Rodney is PISSED because up until the last minute the entire crew was thinking they were going to get SPOCK who had apparently had big ass arugment with Kirk. But Kirk, being Kirk, made up with Spock and so the Pegasus gets John and McKay is UBER pissed to have gotten the wrong Vulcan. John’s Vulcan name is Seban but he’s always used the name his human father gave him. His mother died when Vulcan was destroyed but his grandfather was on Earth so he was spared. Grandpa Vulcan is always crawling up John’s ass about his humanity so John figured a deep space mission would be an excellent way to escape him. Except Grandpa is WILY and JOhn got a lot more from him than he thinks cause Gramps got himself signed to a permanent diplomatic post on John’s ship.

      I got it all plotted out. It’s great. Rodney is horrible and horrified to learn to that he’s more Vulcan than his half-Vulcan captain who slinks around the ship leaning on things and quirking his slanty (sexy) eyebrows at everyone.

      • :: Pants :: You do know that this is a horrible thing to wave at us? Because I can soooo see this. And having a very logical and pissy Rodney McKay and a slinky and (left field) logical John is just cool.

        Plus the supporting cast have to be an absolute riot. This is gonna be *fun*!

        ~L

      • *squeels internally* well then… be that way! lol! now then…. *pounces* why haven’t we SEEN this yet!?? *shakes you* why? WHY!? damn you! lol. *goes into corner and mutters and she twitches and foams at the mouth for her next fic-fix* =D

      • O.K 1. You’re a meam, mean, mean woman. Why wasn’t this in the WIP section so we can fantasise(sp?) about it?!

        2. Is the vulcan culture on earth going to turn in to a blending of earth & vulcan? it will probably be safer for them becouse then they will not be tiking(sp?) time bombs untill something make them lose their inhabicens(sp? ,I mean when something in our mind doesn’t let us do what we want.) & go nuts. if they blend with earth culture they will probably have more of a conection with their feelings, so, a better balance.

        • If I put all of my plot bunnies in my WIP section– you guys would probably stage a coup and take me hostage. 😉

          • Would we do something like that?

            *gives you my very best sweet lil ole lady smile*

            I still like the idea of shoving a bunch of your clones in the Tardis.

            *throws fangirl-modified high-test bunny food around*

          • *hides the rope behind back* ….nooooo we wouldn’t do that…. *looks at other people hiding cuffs, tape, glue* …really! ^____^

  93. just read your star trek bunny and made me laugh,again i say i am awed at your imagination,how you could weave together sga with star trek reboot is just phenomenal.
    maybe after ties and sentinel done could do sga/startrek for all us nerds[with lots of added porn of course!!]
    just a thought,still love all your other stuff,not read anything from you i have not liked.

  94. Totally agree with you. Guys should stay guys. I love the way you describe the guys. The pictures and song playlist are awesome too. A whole package. Keep it up.
