BMick is the phonetic rendition of my initials - BMc - which were already taken. I'm a Stargate Atlantis fan who found this site while seeking a "fix" for my favorite imaginary world and cast of characters.

I haven't found the nerve to post any work of my own yet... but I had to join so I could review and show my appreciation for all the wonderful stories I find here. I'm really more qualified to beta-read than anything else (ex-proofreader, ex-librarian, ex-teacher) but that's not allowed until I publish some of the plot-bunnies that haunt my brain. I'm trying.

Thank you so much to all of these talented people who brighten my days!

Three Days In the Life of Rodney McKay by T'Pring reviews
Rodney McKay was an ambitious man, but his ambitions were of the intellectual variety. He could care less about money as long as there were plenty of people around telling him he was the smartest guy in the room. He had that title neatly wrapped up (whenever Sam wasn't on base) until a certain John Sheppard sauntered into the Antarctic Base.

Variations by BloodFromTheThorn reviews
Rodney continued to stare at the spot where the colonel had been standing, perhaps in the hopes that he would miraculously reappear along with the chunk of floor that had given way when he'd stepped on it but even in a place as weird and wonderful as the Pegasus galaxy, miracles didn't happen.
