Why You Should Read This:
John Sheppard as a werecat! The author did a fantastic job with the world building, creating a world in which “felines” are considered a second-class citizen – less than that, even. Felines are considered dangerous and are frequently taken from their home, put in the “Feline Center”, which is corrupt. The author also adds wonderful details to shifting and the effects it has on felines. This fic takes place pre-Atlantis, while Daniel is still searching for the gate address to Atlantis, and the Jack-John relationship is just so amazing. I love the development of John and Rodney’s relationship as well, it will make you so happy for John. Plus, the characterizations are spot on!

  1. Totally awesome! Also has kids, but is *not* a kid-fic. Although I’d lobby for a sequel just to get more Miranda. 🙂

    • Ooo, yes! I would love some more Miranda too XD Plus I’d like to see how felines would change things on Atlantis (or if things change at all!). It’s a fascinating ‘verse.

  2. Totally amazing verse and is definitely now in my top10 stories (top 3 if not including any of Lady Keira’s). Very well-written, kept my interest from start to end and the characters were really believable. Thanks for writing this…and any time you want to write more please do so! Hx

    • I’m glad you enjoyed it so much 🙂 I’ll be sure to let the author know it made your top ten, she’ll be extremely pleased. Thank you for commenting <3

  3. I have to agree that this has entered my top ten. Will be one of the 2 or 3 I use to turn others on to fan fiction from now on.

  4. That was totally amazing! Like many others, I would LOVE a sequel in this verse; I’ll even get out pom poms and brew coffee if necessary. Definitely a new favorite! Thanks for the post.
