Oh, how gorgeous. It filled my heart with such joy. I can definitely see Micah and Atlantis getting on very well together. And General Sheppard, eeee! So so so much love for this.

Thank you! Micah and Atlantis would totally be BFF.

That sends shivers all down my back with its haunting loveliness.

oh, wow, this is fabulous - I love the way you write Micah into this world, where it turns out that he was meant to be. I love this really an awful lot.
thedeadparrot: death and dreamthedeadparrot on February 2nd, 2008 02:07 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I love to think that Micah's the sort of person who could get along anywhere, but the idea of him on Atlantis, with all that Ancient technology around to experience.

Wow-this actually brought tears to my eyes. I have a tendency to anthropomorphize machines anyway, so this was expansion of Micah's powers was really lovely.

Thank you! I love the idea anthropomorphic machines, and I love the idea of Micah discovering them.

This actually made me sniffle a bit:

...Micah had to explain that none of them speak in English or Chinese or Russian but a language of electricity, flowing through wires, through crystals, that the language is so beautiful Micah's just glad he can speak back.

Just beautiful. Thank you.

Thank you! Man, I think machines would sound really amazing if you could hear them.

This was just so very very good.
*listens to the Stargate singing*
Thank you.

Thank you! I do think the stargate sings quite hauntingly. Or maybe joyously. I'm not sure.

This is wonderful! I especially like the gossiping doors, hee. ♥
thedeadparrot: atlantisthedeadparrot on February 10th, 2008 06:32 pm (UTC)
Thank you! The gossiping doors were one of my favorite bits, too. :)

OH, this is gorgeous - I love the crossover and I love Micah's conversation with the machines, and how they their own thoughts and feelings and preferences.
thedeadparrotthedeadparrot on February 11th, 2008 08:50 pm (UTC)
Thank you! I love the idea of hidden worlds all around us, and I think sentient machines would be one of the coolest ones.

I never would have thought of this cross even though this isn't the first time I've read Atlantis POV. This is just elegant - the pacing and flow is just perfect, carrying the reader along from one wonder to the next. I think I got a little teary there at the end.

It's taken me ages to browse through everyone else's pieces for this year's Picfor1000 but I'M so happy I wander back through those bookmarked pages. Lovely.
thedeadparrot: batman beginsthedeadparrot on March 10th, 2008 12:08 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm probably hiding the fact that I think being a technopath would be the COOLEST THING EVER very badly. Especially in the Stargate universe. :)

Oh man, this made me all teary and I have only the barest familiarity with Stargate.
thedeadparrot: shepthedeadparrot on March 16th, 2008 01:45 am (UTC)
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed!

Lovely, lyrical, 'lightful. Thanks for a wonderful trip.
thedeadparrot: flyingthedeadparrot on March 19th, 2008 01:41 am (UTC)
Thank you! It was quite enjoyable to write, myself.
