Title: Dragon KnightAuthor: tari_rooCharacters:
John Sheppard, Cameron Mitchell, Elizabeth Weir, Rodney McKay, Teyla Emmagan, Ronon Dex, Sam Carter, Carson Beckett, Radek Zelenka, Evan LorneSummary:
Atlantis is imminently under attack by an Asuran fleet, and Queen Elizabeth has a desperate last chance plan. Recapture the dragon that is supposedly their last hope in defeating the Asurans. Rodney McKay and his team are back on their quest to capture the black dragon, Jhepard-shon. Shep though is determined not to be found... mostly because he is still recovering from the last attack.Why rec'd?
A wonderful AU that is so truly AU and plays with fantasy and sci-fi elements but still so true the characters that we know from the show.
Also, it has dragon!John. Dragon!John. *enough said*
Title: Answer Man and Terrific Torren Verses the Man in BlackAuthor: ami_venCharacters:
John, Rodney, Torren, TeylaSummary:
Answer Man and his sidekick, Terrific Torren, face the evil Man in Black to save Block City.Why rec'd?
Such a cute and adorable fic! And, you know, so totally canon. *g*
Title: What's Up, Pussycat?Author:
Crack Fic, HumourCharacters:
Rodney, Radek, John, Ronon, brief mention of Teyla and ElizabethWarnings:
Season 3, very brief reference to SG1 episode, "Threads", even briefer Red Dwarf reference, episode "DNA" (no, not that one!)Summary:
Written for the prompt: What I would like: Rodney is a cat (happy for him to be a domestic cat or something wilder and bigger, like a cheetah or whatever).Why Rec'd:
This fic cracked me up in more than one place, and the descriptions of McKay as a cat fit him so well! It was written for my own prompt, so there may be a slight bias here, but I think this fic is well worth a read!
EDIT: Need an author tag please!
Title: Rock HappyAuthor: ArwenLuneFandoms:
Stargate Atlantis/Generation Kill crossoverLength:
Brad Colbert (Generation Kill), several OCs, Cadman, Mehra, Lorne, Sheppard, etc.Content notes:
Violence/injuries similar or a little lower to canon. Mentions the main character being interested in someone, but it's a very minor thing.Summary:
"You want to recruit me for what? You want me to go where?"
Sgt. Brad Colbert has been on a lot of strange missions, but this promises to be his most out there yet: Atlantis.
This is not a story about falling in love. This is a story about falling in team.Why recced:
This is a story about falling in team, daily life in Atlantis, and the weirdness of the Pegasus galaxy, and all three of these things are brilliantly done.
You don't need to know anything about Generation Kill, it works very well to treat them as OCs. The actual OCs are great. Team building and character development, yum!
I love seeing this side of Atlantis that is so different from what I see in many fics. In Rock Happy Atlantis becomes a real place competent people live and work in, many more people besides Sheppard's team.
We also get to see many different sides of the Pegasus galaxy! Good sides, bad sides - my favorite is the mutant kudzu planet - and many details I'd never thought of before.
It's a slow story in the sense that there's no urgent action plot and many smaller scenes, but that gives the author the opportunity to highlight character interaction and the rich setting.
This is one of the best new SGA stories I've read in months.
(If you need more convincing, there's another rec here
Title: Over Sear and AshAuthor: esteefeeCharacters:
Ronon Dex, John Sheppard, Elizabeth Weir, Teyla Emmagan, Rodney McKay, OCsSummary:
Ronon returns to find Sateda wasn't destroyed, but there's no going back in time.Why rec'd?
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful "What if"-story with a great Ronon POV and a lot of Satedan culture. ♥
Title: Hand in HandAuthor: ladysorkaCharacters:
John Sheppard, Teyla Emmagan, Rodney McKay, Ronon DexNote:
slight implied past Sheppard/Holland - but I didn't see it that waySummary:
This was going to give John some sort of complex. Or an incredibly bizarre fetish.Why rec'd?
This is the kind of fic I wish we would have seen in the show. Teamness in a subtle way but still so there.
Title: Free to a Good HomeAuthor: MardahinCharacters:
John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Elizabeth WeirNote:
labeled Slash but I don't see any Slash even when I'm looking with my Slash goggles onSummary:
This is a result of the plush Atlantis craze a while back. John Sheppard accidentally encounters a local artifact which transforms him into a small, flying horse. The rest, as they say, is history.Why rec'd?
Pure, utter, total, adorable and wonderful crack!
Title: The Stars My Destination (1/17)
(link on LJ)(link on AO3
--thanks, schneefink!)Author: mad_maudlinFandom:
Stargate: Atlantis/Star Trek 2009 (mashup)Length:
All of them!PairingS:
Canonical levels of Elizabeth/Simon, Teyla/Kanaanwarnings:
When a terror from out of time threatens the heart of the Federation, the crew of the USS Atlantis must band together in order to stop it. But can they overcome their own demons to stop the greatest threat they'll ever face?
This is such brilliant, clever overlooked
tale. The SGA/Star Trek Reboot fits together so well. The SGA characters going to Starfleet Academy, and eventually facing the big bad, won't be a surprise if you've seen the movie, but the eventual conflict is where the beauty of this particular fusion totally shines. Maud does a wonderful thing with the fusion in the latter half of the the story, completely organic to the SGA half of the mashup and I couldn't decide between holding my breath, or squeeing out loud. The absolutely wonderful title -- from Alfred Bester's classic novel -- seems random until the climax and denouement, then it becomes a thing of beauty, almost bringing said novel in as the third fusion.
I really appreciated the hard work went into this story, with the thoughtful blending of the 2 'verses, and a sensibility that reads like the best SF novels.
n.b. chapter 9 on DW has a bit of a posting oddity, just keep scrolling down past the doubling posting of chapter 8. Search for 'Nine'.
Title: Geek Knight versus the Black DragonAuthor: tari_rooCharacters:
John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Ronon Dex, Teyla Emmagan, Radek Zelenka, Carson Beckett, cameos of Elizabeth Weir and Sam Carter, surprise characterSummary:
The tale of Sir Rodney who went Dragon Hunting. Alternative title: Shep the Dragon has a bad day.Why rec'd?
I don't know where to start. The fic has a great Rodney POV. It has humour, H/C, awesome worldbuilding, awesome character voices, great ideas and is a fantastic AU that I'll be re-reading very often.
Title: Deck the HallsAuthor: penknifeRating:
John and SamWord Count:
By their fourth year in Atlantis, John thinks the Christmas decorations have gotten a little out of hand.Why Rec'd:
Christmas might be over, but it's never too late for a good Christmas fic! Especially one that is well written and leaves you with a smile on your face!
Title: An Ordinary Day - Pegasus StyleAuthor: sgafanCharacters:
John Sheppard, Elizabeth Weir, Carson Beckett, Sgt. BatesSummary:
Another ordinary day in Pegasus, turns out to be not so ordinary, when unlikely trouble comes from an unsuspected source.Why rec'd?
A great Season 1 fic with a great Elizabeth POV and H/C.
