Fic: The Once and Future Kingdoms (Keller/McKay, McKay/Sheppard, PG13)

Title: The Once and Future Kingdoms
Author: losyark
Recipient: aesc
Genre: Crossover, Drama
Pairing: post-McKay/Keller, McShep, Arthur/Merlin UST, pre-Arthur/Gwen
Rating: PG-13
Words: ~40 000
Disclaimer: Standard Disclaimers apply; this is a work of fiction for fun, and not profit or intent of profit is being derived. All recognizable characters and settings are the property of MGM and the BBC.
Author's Notes: I did a lot of peeking about my recipient's journal to get an idea of her preferences, so I hope this hits all your buttons, darling! Set post season 5 for SGA and up to episode 10 of season 2 for "Merlin", a retelling of Arthurian Legend centered on a young Merlin, reluctant manservant to the prattish Prince Arthur, and maturing sorcerer in a kingdom where magic is outlawed and difference scorned.
Summary: "I am Prince Arthur of Camelot!" the boy in the chainmail said. For a small, infinitesimal moment, Rodney considered losing it.

"Right, Prince Arthur, the Prince Arthur," Rodney scoffed instead. "And I'm Merlin."

The dark haired boy that stood a few paces behind his golden Prince cleared his throat. "Uh, no," he said, shifting uneasily from foot to foot, "Actually, I am."

Right, of course. Because this totally was Rodney's life.

Fic: Bound to Heart, Bound to Home (Gen, PG)

Title: Bound to Heart, Bound to Home
Author: calcitrix
Recipient: cat_77
Pairing: Mostly gen; hints of OT4 and background Lorne/Weir
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Historical AU; This is not dark, but it does not ignore issues of the early 1800s, such as war, land appropriation, and slavery.
Author's Notes: When I saw, "Team, maybe some OT4, please!" my brain did this funny thing and put them in the Northwest Territory right after the War of 1812. I did my best to stay true to history; Rodney's science is only half based in fact. Taking everyone out of the Pegasus Galaxy and fitting them into early American culture was a challenge, and I hope I did it justice.
I need to thank my wonderful beta for helping me through my hand-flapping and flailing and significantly decreasing the number of flaws in the story.
Summary: When Sheppard, McKay, Lorne, and Weir move to Illinois in 1815, they only expected the usual challenges of building a home and running a farm. Their household grows when they befriend Teyla and her people and adopt Ronon, on the run from his past. But it's a dangerous world, and only their quick wits, fast shooting, and Rodney's science can save the day.
Story length: Approx. 25,000 words
