This is a very well done story. I especially enjoy the details to the medical terminology and procedure. Thanks so much for sharing!

I wonder what was in those boxes...
Oh my God this story was... It was...
I don't think there's a word in my vocabulary that can tell you how... epic, how amazing, how...
immensely jaw droppingly perfect this story was for me!
The suspense queues;perfect! The comedic relief; well placed and most certainally necessary! And the plot line! Flawless! You got their characters down to a 'T'!
I wish this had been an episode! It would have been THE most popular episode of the show I swear! I could see it all happening! And the ending was beautiful!
I suspect the other doctors weren't too happy about Carson setting his cast on fire, though I'm sure he enjoyed it (and Ronon more than likely).
Brilliant! Loved it! Will cherish it always as the best SGA fanfiction I've ever read!
You have made me want to write one now... Damned plot bunnies!

Very fun and cute sotry

Great story loved all the action and the glimpses into Rodney and Carson's childhood. Just one little thing and it's a mistake nearly every SGA fic writer makes, and that is the use of "marine medics". The Marine's do not have medics they rely upon the help of the wonderful men and women of the Navy Hospital Corps as in Navy Corpsmen. It's a pet peeve of mine because the Marines ( under the department of the Navy )
are brave and have great press but no one knows that it's the Navy that keeps them going. Go Navy!

Words fail to express how much I loved this story!
I was actually sorry to see the O'Connor and Sullivan die! Love how you didn't just forget about them, like they tended to do in the show. The mail call was a gem to remind us that they did have family too. Heartbreaking.
As for Carson and Rodney's battle against the Thing! Can't remember the last time I was jumping in my chair like this! You managed to keep the boys so perfectly in character! Carson's love for his mother and his family broke my heart! Same goes for Rodney's lack of a loving family! Heart break, I tell you!
Rodney's fastball attack and Carson's football tackle... Kudos for writing real and dangerously exciting action!
And don't get me started on the Carson-in-the-water-scene!
I loved poor Grodin's replacement too! Your characters really comes to life with a personality rivaling the canon characters!
It was a excellent contrast between Carson and Rodney's fight for their life and Shep & co locked outside forced to watch and being unable to help.
A brilliant mix of angst and humor!
But the ending?
*ahem* I apologize for the long rambling, but I haven't been this happy about a fic in ages!

Have I told you lately how much I love this story? Why there aren't more monsters-invading-Atlantis episodes on the actual show, I'll never know.
Ignore the asshatted reviewer below. People who don't have the common courtesy to send lengthy nitpicks in a private e-mail (if they absolutely must nitpick. Honestly, woman, must you?)aren't worth the time it takes to read them.
All hail Flah, the monster master!
| Atlantis4Ever chapter 12 . 9/16/2006
I think your review LadyNikko is full of crap and should get a life. Reviewers who can find nothing better to do than to point out tiny little grammar errors should really find something better to do with their time.
That said, this story rocks nine-ways-to-Sunday. What does that mean? I probably did something wrong with that phrasing. I'm sure LadyNikko will tell me exactly what I did wrong.
Ignore that rude behavior and know that your story is so damn cool! MONSTERS! They scare me. You scare me a little. This story is one HELL of a ride and I have loved it since the first time I read it. I adore your Beckett. More please!
| LadyNiko chapter 11 . 9/16/2006
Okay, happy ending - whee :)
But another grammatical nitpick that needs to be pointed out:
"You should of said..."
Not of! Should've is the correct contraction, or should have if you're not using the contraction.
I don't know if English is your first language or not, but this is just something that I keep seeing pop up on the web and I'm questioning, "Aren't children being taught this in school anymore?"
English is really the bastard child of modern languages - it's originally a Germanic root and then forced into a Latin rule structure, so no wonder it's all full of contradictions.
What I'm trying to say is, when in doubt - ask! :) Ask someone what the correct spelling, wordage - whatever is.
That's what a good beta reader is for - they see these things and go, "Fix this!" or, "You need to change that to..."
I know, I make use of them all the time before I put something I've written up on the web.
All in all, a good story, and good dialgoue between Carson and Rodney, and the restof the primary characters. Just work on the slight grammar nitpicks and it will truly be that much better of a story. :)

I just noticed this in my reading of this tale:
"Its claws racked through the back of Carson’s calf."
Then, from that point forward, you have it so that it's *Rodney's* who's injured... :)
You might want to consider doing a quick rewrite of the scene where Carson or Rodney gets hurt up there, so it's clear who the actual injured party is.
Other than that, good dialogue - I like how you've got Carson & Rodney bickering back and forth at each other. It seems so in character for Rodney, his mouth running much faster than his brain can process what he's saying, since he's usually like 10 steps beyond that.

OMG I love this story! You did such a wonderful job all around! I loved the bickering between McKay and Sheppard! Great fic :D !
| StargateJunkie chapter 12 . 8/8/2006
Great fic, I thought it was funny how everyone kept getting poor Major Sheppards' rank wrong. Opps... Colonel. ;)
