Because most babyfic is written by people who don't have babies, and it really, really shows.

Heh, true. I kind of want to see a parent write realistic toddlerfic. Where McKay junior nearly blows up one of the labs in a temper tantrum, or how Sheppard junior breaks his arm trying to fight like Ronon and Teyla junior almost gets trampled trying to run with the Maries and eventually Carter gives the order to turn the Wraith holding cells into a play area because it's the only way to keep them safe and out of the way.

Ficlet: Maximum McKay

This has been circling around in my brain since I read this. So, I had a go at it.

This is what happens with Rodney's son gets loose in the lab. I'll let you know when I come up with something for the other ones.

Re: Ficlet: Maximum McKay

Oh, that was lovely. I especially love the fact that McKay was trying to exert discipline and that no one was overtaken by the kiddie cuteness factor. The kid messes up and people are frustrated and discipline is exerted and life moves on. It felt *real*.

Oh, God yes. I cringe everytime I read mpreg or babyfic. The whole baby in Atlantis stuff aside, would it hurt authors to maybe do some research on pregnancy or get their story beta'd by someone who has actually had a child.
