Haven't yet read this piece, it's on my list, but I wanted to chime in with my two cents' on the rating/smut issue, since I've had that issue crop up in regards to my own work.
Plus I absolutely loathe it when the 'site rule Nazis' step in and b*tch about stuff...I mean, who died and left them site gods?
First of all, the M-rating on this site is the strongest rating an author can give a story, and Lanajoy clearly followed that rule by giving this piece an M-rating. Plus she states in her author notes that she actually rates it an NC-17 due to the adult situations/sexual content in the story. I had no trouble finding that warning/rating, but perhaps the site rule Nazi did. Spare me the crap about how the kiddies read on the site, I've dealt with that bullshit in my realm and ya know what? It's not the author's responsibility to make sure the content of their story is safe for the young ones, it's the PARENTS' responsibility to make sure what their kids are reading is appropriate for them. Writers are not internet cops. We craft a story, we post it to the site with the appropriate rating, and we expect that the PARENTS are watching to make sure Timmy or Sally aren't reading stuff they shouldn't be reading. So the comments about the 'inappropriate' rating is just crap. The author clearly rates it correctly and warns the reader of the adult content within and her responsibility to the reader ends there.
As far as the smut issue, that's simple enough. If you don't like it, stop reading. Turn your computer off or go to a story you do like, perhaps in a tamer realm such as Disney or Hannah Montana. The writer presumes that the reader has the intelligence to know what they like and don't like, and it is so easy to just stop reading the piece and move on if it's not to your taste. Of course, if the reader isn't smart enough to know what they like/dislike, then perhaps they should not be reading at all in an adult-oriented realm. Might I suggest to the reviewer who took offense at this piece that maybe she'd find Dr. Seuss's 'Green Eggs And Ham' more to her liking? It has plenty of pretty colored pictures in it with nice big easy words, and usually, you can get someone to read it to you if it's beyond your level of comprehension. It even rhymes!
Anyway, that's my thoughts on the matter.

Heard you were getting some heat for the smut you wrote for us. You know how many times we have read this story. It is the fav among our division. You know all that. I just wanted to say, Jami, that without your humor and constant support, your imagination and guts, we would have been lost. From the guys here in this hell hole, a heartfelt thank you comes from our hearts. It is standard fare now to ask ourselves, when the going gets tough, and it does. What would Jack O'Neill do? What would Daniel Jackson do. But most importantly, what would Tealc do. LOL. Without Calli Hertz and Coletti to get us past some of the shit that happens over here. I just don't know where we would be. It hasn't ever been said. It's past time, so to hell with those that put your ass down. We love you dearly and fuck the rest. SEMPER FI baby. SEMPER FI! Keep on doing what you do. Because no one does it better. Trust us, we're Marines. LOL.

One of the best Jack O'Neill stories out on the realms. The sexual aspect, from a guy's point of view, was phenomenal. No one can put us in the mood like you can. I, for one, say, if you're going to write an mature sexual romp, do it right. You are my favorite gal and the humor slayed me. Excellent job. I will and do, read everything you attempt. Although, admittedly, the later stuff is more refined and 'you'.

Wow,,, you really had something for awhile with this, the earlier chapters were amusing and fun to read but then you seemed to get sidetracked on the smut aspect of everything and it really took away from the read.
Sure who doesnt like sam jack moments but it seems like you totally switched the entire focus of the fic around just to add the smut. And frankly it would have been better if you would have just summed it up shorter instead of drawing it out in several chapters. Not only that but depending on whom reads this you are in violation of the postings rules of the site. Sure you mark it with a M but here a M is pretty much pg 13 this fic would be better off at mediaminor or one of the sg1 fic sites

What an image of domestic bliss you paint.
JJ is adorable.
As I said earlier, you have some great lines, can't find em all now, but love the bit when Daniel asks Jack how he knows what Play-Doh tastes like. And really loved the 'Who died' followed by a look to the 'archaeological guy'. Daniel did have this habit of dying rather a lot, didn't he? Or, as Jack said in 'Need' "remarkably hard to kill you, isn't it, Daniel?"
I really enjoyed your story, it carried me along and I was eager to know what happened next.
Only down-side is that the ex-English teacher in me wanted to get the red pen out at times! Sorry. Sometimes, I know it is the difference between the way you Americans and we British put things - two nations separated by a common language as GBS once said. But you should really get a proof reader. It is impossible to proof your own work - I know, I've made some doozies in my time. It is really worth getting someone independent to look over your work and catch the typos, spellings etc.
That said, this is definitely an author I shall watch for in the future.

I love unusual proposals.
Shouldn't this chapter have been posted BEFORE the Forbes/Reynolds one?
| Madders Ahatter 4/11/10 . chapter 124
Love the idea of Jacob zatting Jack!
Not sure I like Jacobina as a name though! Just me.
After all, JJ has Jacob as a middle name. He shouldn't be too greedy!

"he would cross that bridge when the water was too deep"
Love that line. I must try to remember it.
There are lots of odd lines in this story that I just love - methinks you are as good at 'thinking outside the box' as Calli - which is not to say you are crazy as she is!
General Hammond is going to have to go on a recruitment drive, he's running out of people to go 'off-world'!

I was intending to review at the end, but I've realized already there are bits I want to comment on specifically that I'll trouble finding again.
On the whole enjoying it, some great interplay, and Calli and JJ are delightful characters each in their own way.
This chapter rankled a bit however.
Calli is right, Jack is just as likely to have had a snake put in his head as she is. Protocol would DEMAND that he be checked out too, regardless of rank. SOP when you've been in the presence of a Goa'uld.
I've not seen many of the later eps. When did Ba'al get access to an Asgard beam?
Other than that - VBG

kids are alot smarter than most people give them credit for. I was a devious terror just like JJ. It's nice to see realistic moments in their family
