Review of chapter "It's Not About the Bike" from (Past Donor)Jewel
Review:
Overall a lovely, warm story. Loved the ending - poor ickle soldiers lol

And Rodney will have a conniption when he reads their report - imagining that scene is making me laugh again. Thank you!

Review of chapter "It's Not About the Bike" from MegKF
Review:
I really loved this story and look forward to a sequel should you write one. I kept going back and re-reading the newest chapters throughout my day. Oddly I like the last scene although of course I want more.

At first I was concerned about her using her keyness to get into Atlantis, that she'd slam into the shield sometime (there is an actual fanfic where that happens at SGC!) before I realized that if the shield was up she wouldn't be able to connect to the gate at all since she can't sense it with the shield up.

The only thing that bothers me is that the whole time after Dawn met Atlantis and gave them her Driver's License I kept expecting something about her eye color change being mentioned. You made a point of mentioning her eyes had turned green after ending up on the Giant Forest but never said anything again about it, unless I missed it???, but her DL wouldn't have had green eyes on it. Maybe it's an issue I can expect to be mentioned in a sequel?
Comments from author:
I'd have to go back and look, I think it fell into the category of "there's bigger problems than that" in the chapter. But it would definitely come up eventually, of course.

edit 2/20/13: I went back and checked something. I had explained the green eyes thing in my original draft of Chapter 66. Then I rewrote the entire second half of the chapter and it got left out of the final version, and I never worked it back in later. (It was a couple paragraphs after Rodney's "presto!" line, and I rewrote the chapter from that point forward.)

Awesome story! I couldn't stop reading it, even when I knew I needed to get to bed.

I'd love to read more from this universe!

Review of chapter "It's Not About the Bike" from EasterCat
Review:
Thanks for writing a very good story. I'm glad you're working on a sequel. It sucks you had to leave it on a cliffhanger, but I guess you always have to leave the audience hungry for more. :-)
Comments from author:
I'm not sure about a sequel (yet)... kind of want to let the dust settle and work on something else for a while. I'm currently in research mode for something unrelated (it's in a crossover I have not written before) and once that's started, I plan to read through all the Courier reviews for ideas for a possible sequel.

Review:
Great ending, if a bit abrupt. Keep up the good work. Whatever it may be.

Review of chapter "It's Not About the Bike" from DofEire
Review:
Just excellent. Always enjoy your work, and this is no exception. :) It'd be nice at some point in the future to see a little bit more of the 'Lady Liberty' series too, but I'll take what I can get!
Comments from author:
I do have plans to start posting another story within two weeks (am currently doing prep research, as it's in a fandom new to my pen). Like 'the Courier', it's a semi-revolutionary concept (though not in the 'Lady Liberty' sense of the word... ha!). So stay tuned!

Edit (2/23/13): I do have a very basic outline of a plan for how to get 'Lady Liberty' to a sense of closure. It involves a trilogy of short stories (one a completion of 'Continental Christmas', one a few years later in the war, and one after the war.) No idea when I'll get around to writing it, but at least it's something.

Review of chapter "It's Not About the Bike" from maxthehobbit
Review:
I love this story, almost no action (which is what I like the most) but it was very interesting and held my attention so much that I had to read it straight through without stopping for more than a few minutes.

If you do decide to write a sequel, just an idea ... maybe the SG or Atlantis explorers visit the new planets and discover the plans/schematics for making their own naquada generators that the Ancients left millenia ago and the locals had no idea what it was ... but, of course Dawn recognizes them and Daniel Jackson and her translate them. You could have a lot of fun with the new planets, maybe making one or more an R&R for the Earthlings, or turning the planets into a bicycle world and a bicycle economy much like the US had/has a car economy.

At any rate thanks for writing and sharing this very entertaining story. I'm going to check out other stories you have written ... after I get some sleep.
Comments from author:
yeah, looking back... I think the biggest "action" scenes were the two where Dawn almost crashed the bike. No real fight scenes (in fact, only a handful of times did I even mention characters being armed, and they never needed to be).

Review of chapter "It's Not About the Bike" from ReadsaLot
Review:
I have quite enjoyed this fic; swift pacing, nice characterization, and a nicely gripping plot line.

Hope your muse keeps feeding you story lines for this one!
Comments from author:
Thank you! There's quite a few other fics by me posted, and I'm working on background research for my next fic (which is *not* a 'Courier' fic)... I may come back to it, but I prefer not to make that decision right away.

Review of chapter "It's Not About the Bike" from annararen
Review:
Was this the last chapter? It came so quickly.... :(

Thank you for writing and sharing, and please, please continue this story! It feels like the end of season/book 1. I'd love to read more from you!

Best wishes!
Comments from author:
I'm not sure if/when there may be any more Courier fics - I'm holding off on a decision for now, letting the dust settle, and then I'm going to read through all the reviews for ideas in a few weeks.

However, if you want more of my fics, there are quite a few already posted, and I'm in research mode for my next one (I'm going for a fandom I have not written before; it's not in the Courier-verse), which I will hopefully be starting posting on sometime in October.
