Happy to say that I now have Death Game, Homecoming and The Lost all on my Nook, yay! :)

And I'll go ahead and jump in with the chapter title that will probably catch everyone's attention: Quicksilver in Atlantis. :) :) :)

I need more SGA icons, durn it! :)

Yay! Thank you for buying them!

Quicksilver in Atlantis -- I knew that would be the first one picked! That's a key chapter, needless to say, and really, really exciting.

Of course I'm interested in anything to do with Quicksilver, and rightly so, but more problematic - at least to some others amongst my friends - is the title 'Michael'. I think that this is a chapter for Carson, now they know all about that-thing-that's-happened, and oodles of angsty guilt, but they are worried that he will be treated with the same disdain as always? For me, there are so many opportunities to navel gaze, it's just too good to be missed, plus they will need to talk to Todd, and make an attempt to see how this thing was done. More importantly, can it be undone?

*enormous grin*

Just for you, a little snippet of the chapter!


*Commander,* Ember said again, and this time there was definitely fear in his tone. *You run too great a risk.*

Guide spared him a quick glance. *I know the risks I run, cleverman.* He looked back at Quicksilver. *Give me your hand.*

Quicksilver extended his off hand, wary, and Guide caught it in his own, circling the wrist with his long fingers, so that they spoke in intimate privacy. *I give you a name to conjure with. Michael.*

Well, Guide has his back to the wall, doesn't he? If Death probes Quicksilver's mind, Guide is toast. And obviously getting the Lanteans to remove Quicksilver didn't work! So? What's the next move?

Discoveries is about the things they find on Sateda, which are very interesting indeed!

Last Chance -- well, that's the tail end of an absolutely breathtaking space battle! I've admired Melissa Scott's space battles since I read her Roads of Heaven series fifteen years ago, and this is one of her best. And Amy is right there pushing it too. I swear I had a lump in my throat when I read this chapter, even though I knew from the outline what was going to happen!

Have just finished reading 'The Lost'and have to say it blew me aay -I loved it! I can't wait for the next book! Gave up on the paper version and went for the e-book with no regrets!
So... Recall perhaps? Certainly tweaks my curiosity!

Thank you so much! I'm so glad you enjoyed it!

Recall -- this is a Woolsey chapter. After all, he's got to face the consequences for the events of The Lost!

Back Doors

Sounds like a Zelenka chapter.

Quicksilver in Atlantis

Oooh. Will this chapter show us any scenes between Quicksilver and Jennifer?
jo_graham

Back Doors is indeed a Zelenka chapter! Yes!

Quicksilver in Atlantis -- no scenes with Quicksilver and Jennifer in this chapter. But there is Quicksilver and John.

...is a jibbering wreck at just the thought of a Quicksilver & John encounter in Atlantis and the ramifications thereof. Especially when this is followed by chapters with titles such as 'Aftermath' and 'Necessary Measures'. :-) June can't come round quick enough!!

Um, cheeky question, and I know it's not your book : were one to write speculative fanfic about such a meeting, with the total expectation that it would be truly and most expertly Jossed when Allegiance is published, would it be a problem? There are just so many plot worms creeping round my head now.

Yes, you are very welcome to write fic! We hope that you do! This series is for your pleasure, and whatever pops your corn!

Aftermath and Necessary Measures -- oh yes, some people will not be having a good day! :)

How can I play this, with 3 months yet to wait?! But I will, of course... :) Waiting by the Phone, please.

Umm... *grin* Waiting by the Phone, please?

Waiting by the Phone! In which Woolsey is waiting for an important message. When it doesn't arrive it's the first inkling that something is very, very wrong....

the chapter's ZPM and out of time sound interesting. Daedalus and Hammond sound good as well
jo_graham

ZPM is, unsurprisingly, about their attempts to find a new ZPM! Just how that happens is too spoilery! :)

Daedalus and Hammond is the beginning of the massive space battle that ends the book, and that I think is absolutely edge of the chair exciting. OMG I wish I'd written it!

Hmmm let's see, Divided Loyalties sounds like a good plot twist. :)

Oh interesting one! This chapter is two contrasting pieces on the same theme, one with Quicksilver and one with Teyla!

Oooooo that does sound interesting! :D Can't wait to read about it!
