Advantage [03 Jan 2006|01:51am]

dzurlady
Claim: Stargate: Atlantis, general series
Title: Advantage
Author: resonant8
Characters: John/Rodney, others
Prompt: 25. Kink
Rating: NC-17
Length: Long
Brief summary: On a mission offworld, John accidentally becomes Rodney's slave and finds that he must obey Rodney's orders and is compelled to make him happy (which doesn't stop him from being incredibly bossy while doing so). This eventually segues into sex, which is where the kink part comes in - because coming on demand and coming on someone is always hot and there should definitely be more of it out there. Plus, it has a really sweet ending.

Holiday ficlets by Smittywing [02 Jan 2006|09:29pm]

dzurlady
Claim: Stargate: Atlantis, general series
Title: Holiday ficlets by Smittywing (various titles)
Author: smittywing
Characters: Various, including Weir/Caldwell and Laura/Carson
Prompt: 42. Holiday
Rating: G?
Length: Each ficlet is short; overall medium (24 ficlets in total)
Brief summary: smittywing wrote a series of 24 ficlets as a kind of fannish advent calender this year, which feature brief snapshots of Atlantis preparing for Christmas. Throughout them run some ongoing threads, such as Lorne's quest to find flying reindeer and Caldwell's attempt to court Elizabeth by finding the last box of strawberry flavoured candy canes on Earth. Amusing and sweet, some of these are gen and some are het, and a few have very slight slashy overtones, depending on how much of a slasher you are. Humourous and sweet, it's impossible to stop at one.

Title: Can't Have One Without The Other
Author: astolat
Characters: John/Rodney, Ford, Teyla, Elizabeth, others
Prompt: 34. Vacation
Rating: NC-17?
Length: Medium
Brief summary: Set pre-S2, John and Rodney aquire a ZPM by participating in an alien marriage ceremony. Ford takes it upon himself to ensure that they have an appropriate reception when they get back to Atlantis, which doesn't please John much, but also that they both get some time off for a honeymoon, which does.

How Not To Make A Lightbulb [02 Jan 2006|09:45pm]

dzurlady
Claim: Stargate: Atlantis, general series
Title: How Not To Make A Lightbulb
Author: LeahK
Characters: John/Rodney, Ford, Teyla, Radek, others
Prompt: 10. Fandom cliche
Rating: NC-17
Length: Long
Brief summary: What could be more appropriate for this prompt that stargate fandom's most destinctive cliche, Aliens Made Them Have Sex? This fic is a slight twist on the classic, since John and Rodney did have a relationship before the aliens made them have sex - but they had broken up beforehand. John decides that being with Rodney is too hard, and breaks up with him, but being apart is proving to be more difficult than he expected. Here the aliens act as a catalyst for a confrontation between the two of them, and one of the best declarations of love I've read in awhile.

Still [02 Jan 2006|09:34pm]

dzurlady
Claim: Stargate: Atlantis, general series
Title: Still
Author: rageprufrock
Characters: John/Ronon, Teyla, Rodney
Prompt: 09. Hurt/Comfort
Rating: G
Length: Medium
Brief summary: This is a really cool story, because it deals with the implication of having aliens living and working with the expedition, and the inevitable cultural differences that there must be as a result, and how they deal with them. This story is Ronon-centric, and explores what his past might have been, and how he's coping with its loss. Plus, it has a beautiful feeling of connection - connection between the whole team, but especially between John and Ronon. Beautiful and contemplative and just a little bit sad, even while it's hopeful.

A Better Fate [02 Jan 2006|08:40pm]

dzurlady
Claim: Stargate: Atlantis, general series
Title: A Better Fate
Author: mmmchelle
Characters: John/Rodney, others
Prompt: 36. Family
Rating: NC-17
Length: Epic
Brief summary: This is a PWP, if by PWP you mean 'porn with plot'. And for a story with such a lot of sex it's surprisingly sweet. John and Rodney go back to Earth for leave after a mission in which they were captured and tortured, and they go to stay with John's parents. I love mmmchelle's take on John's parents - rather than going with the fanon cliche about John's cold and disaproving military father, in this John's parents are both teachers, who love him but can't understand his choice of career. Plus, even before they get together, John and Rodney act so gay John's parents assume they're together, which is always fun.

The Taste of Apples [02 Jan 2006|06:03pm]

dzurlady
Claim: Stargate: Atlantis, general series
Title: The Taste of Apples
Author: Auburn (auburnnothenna)
Characters: John, Rodney, Ford, Teyla, Elizabeth, Carson, others
Prompt: 14. Loss
Rating: PG-15
Length: Epic
Brief summary: John, Teyla, Rodney and Ford go on a routine mission, but things go horribly wrong when they encounter something they never expected. This story is simply amazing. It could be a pro novel. It has one of the most satisfying endings I've ever read, and one of the sadest. I can't say why it fits this prompt so well without giving away the plot, but it fits so perfectly I thought of this story the instant I saw the prompt. This is a lovely team fic, with an absorbing sci-fi plot, with truely alien life. If I were trying to convince people of the merits of fanfic, this would be one of the stories I'd use. It is impossible not to be moved by this story.

John and Rodney Love Mice [02 Jan 2006|05:05pm]

dzurlady
Claim: Stargate: Atlantis, general series
Title: John and Rodney Love Mice
Author: idlerat
Characters: John/Rodney, mice, others
Prompt: 15. Crack!fic
Rating: PG?
Length: Medium
Brief summary: If there's one thing this fandom does well, it's crackfic. There is some truely fantastic stuff out there, which made picking just one very difficult. In the end, I had to go with this one, because of the format it takes. This is a picture story fic, illustrated by screencaps, and it reads like a cracked out children's story - with added gayness for your reading pleasure. It revolves around Rodney and John's mutual love for each other and for mice. Sheer genius. Warning for those on dial up - it's image heavy.

Prompt: 12. Humour
Rating: R
Length: Long
Brief summary: This could be an episode, only with gay sex! John and Rodney go exploring under the city in a puddlejumper, and then Things go Horribly Wrong. It is increadibly funny and the plot itself is original and intriguing. I cannot recommend this one highly enough.

A blue true dream of sky [28 Dec 2005|10:25pm]

dzurlady
Claim: Stargate: Atlantis, general series
Title: A blue true dream of sky
Author: isilya
Characters: John/Rodney, Teyla, Bates, Ronon, others
Prompt: 02. AU
Rating: NC-17
Length: Long
Brief summary: This is a gorgeous AU, which has many elements from Atlantis recognisable, yet used in unexpected ways. It has a beautiful structure, with two concurrent timelines and each section seperated by a snippet of information about the world she's describing. It also explores real life issues, without over simplifying them. It's set in Australia, where Sheppard is a cattle farmer and Rodney is a scientist looking at wraith. A realistic portrayal of an AU Australia and farmer's life. Very evocative, with a lovely lyrical use of light throughout.

Decussate [28 Dec 2005|10:04pm]

dzurlady
Claim: Stargate: Atlantis, general series
Title: Decussate
Author: casspeach
Characters: Lorne/Parrish, Rodney, Katie, others
Prompt: 30. Seduction
Rating:NC-17
Length: Long
Brief summary: This is a fannish classic - does he love me or is it someone else? It also explores what Atlantis might be like for some of the other scientists, who aren't physisists, as well as dealing with the possible complications of being gay in a world that's not always friendly to gays, without angst. Plus, it's sweet without being OOC. This a loose sequel to Perimeter, but it stands well on its own.

Siren Song [24 Dec 2005|02:16pm]

Claim: Stargate: Atlantis, general series
Title: Siren Song
Author: casspeach
Characters: John, Rodney, Ford, Eluzabeth, Teyla, others
Prompt: 20. Non-con
Rating: 15 (R?)
Length: Medium
Brief summary: This story is really creepy, and explores something that the show does not - surely not all the inhabitants of the Pegasus Galaxy are humanoid. This story, written for the 'First Contact' challenge on sga_flashfic, has aliens that really are, and a first contact that doesn't go as planned. Beautiful science fiction. To say any more would spoil the story.

Prompt: 05. Sex
Rating: NC-17(?)

Brief summary: The world needs more fic where Elizabeth is a strong character who goes for what she wants, and more Lorne fic full stop. Add to that a hot (if short) sex scene and it's perfect.

Two-color dog happiness [23 Dec 2005|11:37pm]

Claim: Stargate: Atlantis, general series
Title: Two-color dog happiness
Author: some_stars
Characters: John, Rodney, Teyla, Ronon, Ford, others
Prompt: 04. Fluff
Rating: PG?
Length: Short/Medium (a series of snippets)
Brief summary: I love these stories - some_stars asked for people to give her cute pictures of baby animals and a character, and she would write a snippet where they turned into it. This is the collection of snippets that resulted - amusing and guarenteed to make you go 'awww' at least once. You can read the whole collection on her website, or surf through the comments, which is more time consuming but allows you see people's responses, which is fun too.

Veracity [23 Dec 2005|11:23pm]

dzurlady
Claim: Stargate: Atlantis, general series
Title: Veracity
Author: mylittleredgirl
Characters: John/Elizabeth, Teyla, Ronon, Rodney, Carson, Kate
Prompt: 13. Est. relationship
Rating: R
Length: Long
Brief summary: I really love stories that deal with the consequences of what happens to people. This story is unusual in that it deals with the fallout after John has been captured and then saved, and how he copes - or doesn't cope - afterwards, spead across several months. It also features an established relationship between John and Elizabeth, with all the emotional baggage that they carry as a result, and explores how that affects their relationship and their interactions. Simply being in a relationship is not enough to solve all their problems. mylittleredgirl also deals with the effect of a relationship between the two commanding officers of Atlantis, and how it affects their work. This is wonderfully done.

Brief summary: I had several different stories that I thought about reccing in this category, but then I remembered this one and I knew that it was the one. Annie is very good at banter, and that shows here. Plus, you have to love Rodney's tendency to babble.

Five Men Who Never Wanted Teyla Emmagen [23 Dec 2005|09:59pm]

Title: Five Men Who Never Wanted Teyla Emmagen
Author: tielan
Characters: Teyla, Bates, Ford, Rodney, Carson, John
Prompt: 43. Denial
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium
Brief summary: I love 'five things' stories. This one explores why, although there they may be attracted to her, five different men have all chosen (however much they might wish otherwise) not to act on that attraction. Although it focuses on Teyla, each different segment offers an insight into the character it focuses on. Plus, it has a Bates who is true to canon and yet is not one dimensional. Bliss.

Stranded [23 Dec 2005|09:28pm]

Title: Stranded
Author: Kylie Lee (kylielee1000
Characters: Rodney, Carson, John, Ford and Teyla
Prompt:45. Trapped
Rating: NC-17
Length: Long
Brief summary: This story has an interesting premise - somehow Ford, McKay, Sheppard, Telya and Carson end up stranded on a planet with the jumper broken down and only those with the ATA gene can activate technology. McKay must somehow manually dial the gate, even though the planet senses his gene is artifical and technology begins to stop working for him too. While he does this, he and Carson begin to explore their feelings for each other. I adore the simile she uses in the sex scene.

Characters: Rodney, John, Elizabeth
Prompt: 35. Threesome
Rating: NC-17
Length: Medium
Brief summary:
This is a brilliant, absorbing story that explores what might have happened had John, Elizabeth and Rodney been captured by the Genii. It is a wonderfully believable description of what being captive might be like, with the three of them turning to each other for comfort. It's narrated from Elizabeth's point of view, and I really love Alyse's characterisation. Plus, it's hot.

Sense Memory [23 Dec 2005|12:26am]

Claim: Stargate Atlantis, general series
Title: Sense Memory
Author: stillane
Characters: Rodney, John, Elizabeth, Radek, Ronon, Teyla
Prompt: 41. Redemption
Rating: PG-13
Length: Medium
Brief summary:
With this prompt, the first thing I immediately thought of was "Trinity" and the many different fics that were written after it aired. This is one of the best. It's written in five sections, one for each sense, and compares Rodney's perceptions with those of the people closest to him in the aftermath. As a result, although it is focused on Rodney it also has some wonderful moments for everyone else featured. This contains some beautifully evocative phrases, and the contrast between Rodney's view and that of the others is paticularly poignant.
