9:01PM - John/Cam fic

This is a long shot because I know nothing about the story.  I just remember reading in the synopsis that it was John/Cam and (and this is the important bit) John and Rodney are BFFs.  Can anyone remember seeing this in a synopsis anywhere?

Many thanks

8:55PM - Phantoms Tag

The story I'm looking for was a 'Phantoms' tag.  As our heroes are waiting for pickup, John has some kind of medical emergency that Carson has to deal with. Maybe a heart issue??  I know it is NOT the one where Carson is still hallucinating.


Current mood: aggravated

9:04PM - AU McShep fic - ATA-gene holders mutate, are persecuted

I'm looking for a fairly long McShep fic I read some time ago. In it, ATA gene holders are mysteriously mutating to develop superpowers for lack of a better word. Rodney became a technopath I think, and John was able to turn into some variation of his bug form from Conversion. It wasn't just happening to those at the SGC either, it was happening all over the world. "Normal" humans were panicking and world opinion was starting to turn towards killing the mutants, so they moved to a compound Rodney had bought long ago and started to prepare to defend themselves. I can't remember how it ended but I do remember really enjoying the story, so I'd like to read it again. Oh, Daniel and Jack were also mutated and a fairly large part of the story. If I remember right, John and Jack were co leaders - John led the mutants with offensive powers, and Jack those with defensive powers. I hope this is enough to spark someone's memory!

8:03PM - Ascension series by hoktauri

This was recced with a brief excerpt, but I can't find it anywhere. The rec gives a link to AO3, but the link doesn't work. Briefly, according to the excerpt, apparently John gets some bad news about his health while they're in San Francisco (post series) and it is confirmed via letter when they're back in Pegasus. Another synopsis I saw said it's 24,666 words - the summary says: "If anyone is going to rewrite John Sheppard's future, it's damn well gonna be John."

I found hoktauri's livejournal page, but after a couple of days going through posts (okay, so I stopped on the way to read other stories, lol), I still can't find it. Can anyone help?

Thanks for whatever you can tell me.

timespirit & hoktauri came through -- she will load it on AO3 in the near future -- YAY! Thanks so much!

10:47AM - John/ Rodney AU Fic Series

Okay. I was reading a story on AO3. It's part of a series. Both stories are multiple chapters with the first in the series being complete. Both stories are posted within the last couple of months. It's an AU in that John is as a police officer, is divorced from Nancy, and has a son. Rodney works for the SGC, but is doing it from home because of some kind of breakdown. John and Rodney live in the same building and start to date. In the second story John starts working for the SGC. I went on vacation and have completely forgotten the name of the story/series and the author. I have searched on AO3 since I got back and have had no luck. Please help.

1:38PM - John destroys Midway

This is an older story where something happens to Earth. O'Neill has shut down Earth's stargate and John's orders are to destroy Midway. He takes a puddlejumper there and accomplishes his mission and returns to Atlantis. That's all I can remember. Does anyone know where I can find this story?

FOUND Thank you. Link is in the comments.

I remember I loved the story but at the moment can't remember much. There was a trust ritual that the team had to go through that had John stripped naked and laying in a deep box. Some sort of polymer was sprayed covering him that hardened and he started struggling. The rest of them panicked thinking he was suffocating and tried to remove the stuff from him but could not. Strangely he was able to breathe through the polymer and they all calmed down until the ritual ended. I also am fairly sure it ended as McShep.

10:34PM - Looking for Two Stories

I been wanting to read these two stories again, but have no idea how to find them. First one, I only remember a small part, the second one was a very long work-in-progress, maybe over 30 chapters when I lost track of when I change computers.

The first one: the team were on an off world mission, I can't remember if Ford or Ronon were in the team. They were in a cave-like place exploring, John Sheppard picked up pottery-like bowl and something happen to him from this and his personality changed and he became wicked enjoying the slumped shoulders of Rodney McKay when ordering him out a room or cave when Rodney McKay wanted to stay. John was smiling as they walked out the cavern room. That is all I remember.

The Second One: In an AU, Elizabeth Wier runs a corporation, Rodney McKay was in trouble, administration wise, maybe ready to be fired? But Wier asked McKay to a companion for her husband (John Sheppard) for awhile, John Sheppard, who was in recovering from cancer. Rodney walked in on John, John was bald and angry told Rodney to leave. Later, later, John and Rodney became friends then lovers. Last chapter I read, they were renting a house on a beach.

Thank you and I got my fingers cross.

5:06PM - lost fic

Hey everyone,

I am looking for a story I read ages ago. Rodney is taken prison and is fairly certain he will break under torture so he poisens himself or something. Of course he is rescued in time but the team is disappointed by his lack of trust that they will get him.

Sorry I know that is vague but if anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it.

10:55PM - Aliens make the team drink potions and John has to decide who gets to drink what

It's late, I'm tired and my google fu is apparently broken. =(

I'm looking for a story I read a long time ago. All I can remember is that it involved the team having to drink potions that did different things to them (cause sleep, pain, amnesia and something else I think). John has to decide who has to drink what.

I remember that the aliens that made them drink the potions were surprised by his choice. I think it had something to do with John picking Ronon for the potion that made him sick/in pain when they thought he'd have Rodney drink it as "punishment" for being the sarcastic loudmouth he is.

I'd love to re-read this but can't seem to find it. Help is much appreciated.

Thank you in advance!

Current mood: tired

7:29PM - Earth side AU

Hey everyone,

I'm looking for a Mckay/Sheppard story / AU / No SGC / on Earth. Sheppard sees Mckay unconscious on the side of the road on his way home and stops to help him. Carson comes by his home to see what the problem is. Earth has an open top/sub culture but Sheppard does not want the responsability for another living creature. In repayment for John's hospitality Rodney subs for him and they develop a relationship of sorts. Rodney is a disgraced physicist who retreated from the field when a coworker he yelled at/fired committed suicide. They end-up together after a little drama (Sheppard starts to become aware of the relationship and gets cold feet, Rodney has to sell himself to someone else...something with a dangerous club and knives.. Carson makes a reappearance).

Does this ring a bell to anyone?

4:03PM - Last Man episode story

Hi all,

this one's driving me crazy. I'm dead certain it's going to be something obvious.

This story took place in hologram!Rodney's Universe and was set between John's disappearance and Rodney persuading Lorne to send him to Atlantis so he can set up the hologram.

In it, Lorne and McKay had a tradition where Lorne would visit him once every few years with a bottle of alcohol. It's a McShep story but there were a few Lorne/McKay moments.

Anyone know what this is?

11:02PM - John is a slave

I don't remember much about the story except that John was being sold as a slave, and he was purchased by Rodney and Ronon who were off-world warlords. And they used some kind of drug to keep John happy and pliable.

Thank you.

4:51AM - looking for an old story, Rodney is John's slave

I don't know the ending because I squicked out. It's not the one where Sheppard gives up McKay to Bates. It is the other story.

Thanks popkin16! It's The Bribe by fenchurch1.

The other story is Not What It Seems by blackchaps Thanks 19walterscott44 for finding it.

5:56PM - Looking for a story

Hi everyone, I'm looking for an older story.  In it sga1 is kidnapped. Rodney is tortured and John later believes that he's died.  Ronon and Teyla are sold as slaves. Teyla ends up in a brothel where Ronon rescues her.  The team mistakenly leaves believing Rodney is dead. When on Atlantis they hear Rosney calling for them. They return to the planet and rescue him. Thanks for your help.

1:37PM - LFS DADT repealed, John comes out in the gateroom


I'm looking for a story where John comes out in the gateroom. As for the scene itself, I might be mixing two stories. In my head, John has learned DADT is repealed and makes an announcement in the gateroom. I believe he says something along the lines of wanting to make it easier on others by setting an example and says "I'm gay." He then rushes off to find Rodney.

I hope someone can recognize this, I know it's not much to go on.

Thank you!

FOUND! It was "Jump" by Velocitygrass. Link in comments.

12:42PM - John kidnapped and replaced

The previous search made me remember this one, but darn if I can find it among my bookmarks.

It's a fic where John gets kidnapped off-world, but somehow, the team doesn't notice it (maybe they're drugged, maybe it's some other reason). Part of the reason for that is that the team does indeed return with a Sheppard. But over time, Rodney notices irregularities, and is convinced this is not John.

Don't remember what else happens, but somehow or another, the new John turns out to be either a clone or an AI, and he dies saving Rodney.

It's an old fic, but I'm pretty sure it was a popular one back then, never you mind how much I'm making it sound like a badfic with my inadequate description.

Anyone remember it?

Thanks in advance :)

EDIT: Found by outsideth3box. Story in question is Skin Deep by Lady Anne.

12:02AM - Sheppard part machine,

Rodney, Teyla and Ronen work to get him back. I'm sorry if it seems that I've been spamming this board, I've been away for awhile.
on edit I think there was art, but made later. Also, maybe Sheppard was in a stasis pod or something like a VR.

Thank you that_which for finding Do Sheppards Dream of Electric Sheep?
