Title: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (give or take)
Characters: John/Rodney, Elizabeth, Zelenka, others
Prompt: 12. Humour
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.
"With all due respect, Elizabeth, they were built by people who periodically sank their city to the bottom of the ocean. We know they're air-tight, at least when not bisected by a wormhole, so really, what danger can there be? If the Ancients didn't make them do double duty as submarines, it's time we faced the possibility that the Ancients were incredibly stupid."
"There you go," Sheppard said, "McKay trusts the jumpers underwater, and he doesn't think anything's safe."
Weir looked from one of them to the other. "Why do I get the feeling I lost this debate before it started?"
"Wisdom and instinct," Rodney said cheerfully. "You are truly a great leader."
"Thank you, Rodney," she said, with exactly the same level of sincerity. "That's very kind."
