Just re-read Leviathan; as brilliant as I remembered it. Are we likely to ever get more of this story? (pleading soulful eyes)

Review of chapter "Part 15 / Coup D'etat" from (Past Donor)wozwashi
Review:
Great story. I love it.

I'm reading this at work and I cant stop laughing... not of the good, but worth it for the coffee shot story.

Please write more.

Review of chapter "Part 1 - Seafood" from grouchie
Review:
I just start reading your story it is really entertaining to read and not hard to follow even not knowing Dr. Berry and her group. you have done a great job of making them alive for someone who knew nothing about them. good job mixing them with the Atlantis crew.

Review of chapter "Part 14 - Are You R2?" from TombCranktheCrafty
Review:
I love the premise of this story; I'd never even considered that SGA might need a marine biologist or two to keep an eye on the whales. I'm also enjoying the scientists' perspective. (The last whale-related story I read was Christopher Moore's "Fluke, or I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings".) Excellent, excellent, excellent. Keep up the good work!

Review of chapter "Part 14 - Are You R2?" from (Current Donor)Shieldage
Review:
Awww, R2 rocks :)

Good chapter, nice to see Sheppard getting played with and Genny is cool ;)

Just found Chapter 13
'grinned in an unnerving fashion' - nice phrase :)
Great to see the whales arrive :D

Review of chapter "Part 14 - Are You R2?" from ianquest
Review:
I love this story! I was a bit dubious at first, because I'm always wary of original characters (they often smack of Mary-Sueism), but I thoroughly enjoyed this. As a wannabe marine biologist, I have to say that I love the job descriptions of Our Heroes, and I'm looking forward to reading more about the Lantean cetaceans, especially now that we've started to really see them. Of course, now I'm going to have to dig out my DVDs and re-watch 'Grace Under Pressure'!

Of course, it's also great to see Casper & Genny hail from two of the greatest - and most under-used in Stargate - countries on the planet (Aussie myself, with my sister born in NZ)! :D

The only complaint I could have is the length of the chapters: I Want More! (Spoiled, yes, I know!) :) I have been pleased to see the chapter lengths increasing, always good for us voracious readers!

One thing I do want to note, however, is that you should be careful about introducing plot elements into the story arc and then abandoning them; there's no real feeling of resolution/closure to the Berry/Caldwell/Madeleine element, it just sort of faded into the background as the characters got on with their lives. While it's fine to put a story element aside to focus on another and then reintroduce it later, leaving it too long before reintroduction leaves the reader feeling as if it's been forgotten about, and when it reappears it often feels rushed or forced.

Otherwise, a brilliant story, which successfully concentrates on the characters without forgetting that they're in a highly technologically-developed environment, yet avoids descending into technobabble. Congratulations!

That was a fantastic review. My mind is officially boggled. The chapters creep up on me and seem to be getting longer and longer (curse them).

Don't worry about resolution with Grace and Maddie and Caldwell. It'll get there. I am merely waiting for an opportune moment, muwhahahaha...

Thanks again for the review!

Review of chapter "Part 14 - Are You R2?" from Stardragon
Review:
Unique. This is the most original (yet logical) story I've read about Atlantis. On the show they do seem to spend far more time exploring the galaxy than the planet they are on. The only problem is the tie-in with Caldwell. It actually gets in the way of the main story which is far more interesting. Please consider downplaying it.
Comments from author:
Um. This actually is rather important for Grace's character, its her daughter after all. The main focus will always be the Marine Bio team anyway.

Thanks for the review.

Review of chapter "Part 14 - Are You R2?" from feekh
Review:
That was just almost too much, with the weird New Zealander and the whales and the psychicness and the flirting. And R2!!!!!
Don't even know where to start. I was just grinning like a loon throughout the whole two chapters.

Review of chapter "Part 8 - Wow, Big" from RevDorothyL
Review:
I wondered about this line here: "thoroughly bamboozled and very nearly about to implode ..."

Does bamboozled mean something different in Australian or English slang? In the US, it means you've been tricked, cheated, had the wool pulled over your eyes -- been deceived. But that meaning doesn't seem in the spirit of the exultant emotional tone you're otherwise portraying.

[update: Ahh! So 'bamboozled' in your neck of the woods can also mean 'gobsmacked' or 'blown away' (in the good sense, not in the 'fill you full of lead' way). Got it! Thanks.]
Comments from author:
Down here in Kiwi-land, it can mean that, but mostly it means something along the lines of 'golly-gee-whiz-wow!'. It the way you feel when you're first confronted with the Eiffel Tower, or looking down on the organized mess that is the Arc De Triomphe round-road. Its that sucker-punch feeling of witnessing something truly awesome. Do ya get where I'm coming from?
