Fic: Care Package (McKay/Sheppard, NC-17)

Title: Care Package
Author: oceania
Recipient: lilyleia78
Pairing: McKay/Sheppard
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 4311
Warnings: None really. The rating says it all. [Additional info: use of toys in an adult rated story featuring sex]
Episode Tag: Miller's Crossing
Disclaimer: These characters don't belong to me. I like to play with them sometimes.

Summary: The story begins with the last scene in the episode Miller's Crossing.and takes its cue from the look on John's face when he refuses to let Rodney sacrifice himself to save Jeannie. To me, it was clear that John was coming to grips with the way he felt about Rodney and his refusal to allow Rodney to feed himself to the Wraith was an act based solely on his love for the man. But I was unsatisfied with the ending which seemed as if John was agreeing with Jeannie that Rodney was "no John Sheppard" and that he believed himself to be better looking than Rodney. That seemed out of character for the self-effacing John that I love so I took the story to where I imagined it ought to go. :)

Notes: I was excited to be given lilyleia78 because I had really enjoyed reading her stories long before I began writing McShep myself. She wanted a story that was unabashedly McShep! She was very open to the genre and simply wanted a happy ending, and didn't mind a little angst along the way. She wanted "team as family" and I tried to include that in the relationship between John and Teyla. She loves tropes so I used the "gay just for each other trope" and since she was open to NC-17, I went for a romantic, slightly porny first time which I hope contains just the right mix of sex and schmoop. As per her request, there is mention of Lorne/Parrish and Jack/Daniel play a significant role in getting our two love birds together at last.

On a personal note, John's feet seem to be a particular fascination of mine, as are his ears. I do not have a foot fetish but I believe I would develop one if I had the chance to play with the Colonel's delicious feet. :)

Author's note

Dear bluflamingo you gave me a wealth of information to work from but I was particularly captivated by the idea of Ronon protecting John emotionally. I wanted it to be subtle, gentle and take place slowly over an extended period of time and be executed with such finesse that John isn't really aware of what's happening until it's too late and then have it be reciprocal. That's the story I wanted to tell. I wrote then tore it apart and rewrote it. I hope this at least paddles in the shallow waters of delivering that aim!

In my head this takes place over about four to five years tying into the following key episodes: 2x6 Trinity, 2x12 Epiphany, 3x04 Sateda, 4x03 Reunion, 4x15 Outcast and 5x03 Broken Ties.

Nitpicky note on show's consistency!

I checked the calculations for the time dilation field for the Cloister planet (in Epiphany, episode 2x12). If six months have passed for John, and we know that the time dilation is 1:250 (as mentioned by Teyla) this means that John has to have been away from Atlantis for at least 15-20 hours - rather than the couple or few they repeatedly say in the show.

Deadlines

We're waiting for (I think) 14 stories, including 2 to pinch hitters. Most other people were given until yesterday to get the story to us.

If this is you, and you don't get the story to us by the end of the day, we'll be putting them out to pinch hit tomorrow.

We haven't been able to respond to mail today yet so don't panic if you've sent it in the last 24 hours or so and haven't received an acknowledgement. Panic tonight instead ::g::

Santa Madness will start once everyone who submitted a story has a story, rather than waiting til Boxing Day. (If you've defaulted and so has your assigned author, we won't be organising a pinch hit.)

The next week is therefore going to busy so please bear with us and if there are only minor corrections to be made to your story, if you could contact us about it either after Boxing Day or after the reveal on the first we'd appreciate it. Also, because the HTML files need to be updated from my desktop and ftp'ed up, there may be a slight delay in putting in the correct link back to the LJ entry rather than the comm as Claire doesn't have access. Please bear with us on that as well.

Thank you.

Title: All the heroes who came before us
Author: linziday

Fic: Get By With A Little Help [1/2] (McKay/Sheppard, Lorne/Zelenka, R)

Title: Get By With A Little Help
Author: skitz_phenom
Recipient: taste_is_sweet
Pairing: John/Rodney (minor Lorne/Zelenka, other canon and non-canon pairings mentioned briefly)
Rating: R
Disclaimer: Stargate Atlantis and any and all related materials are not mine. Don't own 'em... just playing with them. I'll put them all back just the way I found them when I'm done.

Author's Notes: Several 'hopes' for this story: taste_is_sweet I hope this makes you smile. I hope it's not too obvious that this is my first foray into writing SGA and McShep. I also hope that there's nothing in this that's too overtly similar to anything else that's been written. Listening to McShep podfic has been my sanity-saver these past few months, so I worry I may have subconsciously absorbed stuff. Oh and, due to the fact that I just started a new job this week, and scrambling to get the last couple thousand words written has been difficult, this did not get finished in time for a beta. I hope that's not too obvious.

Summary: An accident at an Ancient Laboratory manages to trap several Atlantis personnel and expose them to a mildly mind-altering substance, leaving John and Rodney to keep an eye on the them during their ordeal. Munchies are experienced, much giggling ensues and truths are revealed.

Rating: NC-17

Author's Notes: I had the honor of writing Cam/John for a very prolific Cam/John writer. I can only hope it lives up to the standard she set for that pairing. Merry Christmas!
Author's Notes 2: So I had a lot of help with many of the smaller details of this fic. SG1 is not my main fandom, so I had a bunch of questions that several lovely people were willing to answer. If you're reading this, I think you know who you are, thank you so much for listening to my inane questions and for answering them. You all were so helpful and amazing.
