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!
