After the Wraith Fed upon him, Sheppard has been left feeling uneasy, something in him has changed, but he doesn't know what. Beckett can't find anything Medical; and Dr. Heightmeyer can't find anything Psychological, even though John isn't exactly open to talking to her. Maybe it's just knowing what's happened to him, but he still doesn't feel right in his own skin. Teyla tries talking to him, closer to understanding than most, but like with Heightmeyer, he doesn't actually want to talk about it. And then, what on any other day would have been a not unusual; and affectionate round of sniping and bickering with Rodney, turns into something nasty. John explodes on him, Rodney had his guard down, and isn't expecting anything like this, this aggression, and is actually pretty shaken by it, and others are too. Calming down, John knows that he needs to apologise, he wants to apologise, Rodney really is his Best Friend, and he didn't mean to hurt him. Rodney isn't holding a grudge, or being difficult, he didn't go to John, but he's worried. John finally breaks down, admits how scared he is, how scared he is that the Wraith has changed him. Rodney comforts him, he was scared too, but unexpectedly, John makes a pass at him. It's actually something that neither of them has thought about before, John hadn't been planning it, and Rodney pulls back, clearly taken aback. Now there's something very awkward hanging between them, and neither quite knows how to clear it.
John and Rodney were Ancients, and before they Ascended, they were together. When the time came, they Ascended together, but 10 Thousand Years spent incorporeal, just compounded that neither exactly. They retook Human Form to be together, but returned with no Memory of who they really are, and continued on to live Human Lives. Then they met, and travelled together to Atlantis, with only the barest remnant of what they were to each other, and a whole new Relationship developing, just as it did between them the first time around.
During the Siege, Atlantis dialled out before Earth could dial in, the expedition evacuated, and Atlantis was destroyed. Daedalus arrived 3 days later, but the city was gone, and there was no sign of any survivors, they searched for the Expedition, but Pegasus is a big Galaxy, and they were forced to return to Earth. The Expedition continued to explore, and find Taranis. Helping to save its people from destruction, they are able to procure the Orion from them, and plan to return to Earth. The journey will take months, and the Orion is barely operational, but everyone is glad of the distraction, and at least possibility of returning home. Everyone is very relaxed, lines have blurred, and Sheppard and McKay are spending a lot of time together. If possible, it's even more companionable than before, and they are getting closer.
When he was Infected by Elia with the retrovirus, and unbeknownst to him, Sheppard laid an embryo in Atlantis, that since that time has been gestating. It hatches into a version of Sheppard, that's outwardly Human, but is internally Wraith. It has all of John's memories, but they're tainted by the Wraith's instincts and motivations; it's John Sheppard in the state of mind that he was in while infected. It moves through the city, able to pass as John, interacting with different people, and one of those is Rodney, whose friendship it remembers, but can't define, and whose boundaries and lines it won't respect.
It was always strange for me that Rodney as a genius and exposed to CIA and other organisations from early age, did not pick up few things, like self defense. In my mind he could be a perfect soldier if h so wished it, and i would love to see him prove that to the team... I have this image in my head: Rodney is a genius, and he is fed up with the way John and the rest of the team are treating him, as if he did not know what to do on missions, although his actions (in combat situations)never engendered the team. So he gathers them in the gym, asks for Ronnon's knifes and throws it casually in a target, hitting it dead center, - some comment something like 'that was just luck' and Rodney rolls his eyes, saying about 'it just physics' and hauling three more knives at the target. And/Or it might be a shooting range, and Rodney takes shots after one of the marines/or Shep and at first everybody thinks he missed all shots and then the see the paper target and see he hit all of the same spots the previous shooter did...Or maybe Rodney had combat training at the CIA, long time ago and remembered it but never got a chance to use it, and showed some moves on Shep or on Ronon - and beat them, or maybe spared with Teyla with the sticks and like with the knives was good at handling them...
Categories: None Characters: Rodney McKay
Rodney McKay was never involved with the SGC, and never went to Atlantis. Instead, he became a business man, and later involved in the IOA. So involved in fact, he was elected to take over Atlantis. Arriving though, he gets off to a very bad start with the military commander, Lieutenant Colonel John Sheppard, who has a big problem with Rodney being there.
Sheppard has never been more embarrassed, he's contracted an STD, from an indiscretion off world, and it's highly contagious, he even set off Atlantis' sensors with it. Beckett has quarantined John off in his quarters, with instructions that he stay there for the foreseeable future. McKay can't resist visiting John; and takes great pleasure in teasing him. What he's not expecting is that his brief visit causes him to contract the same disease, and Beckett confines them both to John's quarters.
I would like to see a story where Carson has military training and/or special ops training but is hiding his former life and skills and is "only a Doctor".Something happens Offworld and Carson is forced to use his skills. How will the rest of the team react and why did Carson hide his past? Could be Gen or Slash(Beckett/McKay or Beckett/Sheppard or McKay/Beckett/Sheppard)

John Sheppard's Marriage was in trouble, and to please his Wife, he agreed to a Threesome with another man. John has never been with another man before, never wanted to be, and since he's in the Military, if anyone were to ever find out, the consequences would be severe. John's Wife is now using that threat against him, to degrade John, and force him to engage in further acts with men. John is miserable, and more broken than he could ever imagine being, made worse that one of the men that John's Wife brings home completely freaks at the prospect, and bolts, but when John bumps into that man, Rodney McKay, they've been left with enough to talk about, to be able to strike up a Friendship.
John,Rodney and Carson have been in a relationship for some time when SGA 1 and Carson go offworld and the three get separated from the rest of the team.They find some Ancient device which turns John and Carson into small children.How will Rodney deal with his little lovers since he doesn't like children very much and will the Atlantis crew be able to turn them back?
Working from the alternate dimension's Lieutenant Colonel Samantha Carter report, and now that Earth is protected from the Ori, the government feel justified in exploring the Pegasus Galaxy for technology to fight them with. Their only ZPM was depleted fighting the Ori, so are taking Daedalus to reach Atlantis. Everyone on the planet knows about the Ori, the Stargate, and the Ancient Outpost, but John Sheppard found out about it before most, when he had to fly Jack O’Neill out there, just in time to use it to save the planet! It's also there that John found that he had the Ancient gene, meaning that O'Neill could stay on Earth, and Sheppard could go to Atlantis. No one was particularly happy with that decision, but Carter's report said that Sheppard was already there in her reality anyway. In fact, most of the members of the expedition are those mentioned in Carter's report, those who are still alive anyway, and one of those members is Rodney McKay. It will take a couple of weeks to reach the Pegasus Galaxy, and Sheppard and McKay have nothing else to do but get to know each other.
John Sheppard and Rodney McKay grew up in the same small Town; they played together as children, went to school together, and finally fell in Love. John wanted to fly, something that the small Planes available to him, allowed him to do, but Rodney wanted to further his education, and that meant leaving, for a long time, and maybe never coming back, because an education wouldn't exactly be of any use in his Hometown. Rodney leaves, he leaves John, and then with a Doctorate, and PhD's in hand, does come Home. John hasn't waited for Rodney, he's gotten on with his Life, and their may not be a place in it for Rodney, and it may not be what either of them even wants anymore.
When the Expedition first arrives in Atlantis, and before the Failsafe was implemented, Sheppard and McKay are in the Jumper, when the City begins to Flood. They're transported back in time to when the Ancients still inhabited the City, both surviving the Jumper's crash. They remain in Atlantis after the Ancients evacuate to Earth, in order to sustain the City until the Expedition arrives. John and Rodney have barely said two words to each other, but decide to stay out of Stasis in order to get to get to know each other, and end up getting on each others nerves, but there's also an undercurrent neither is willing to admit to. Their next time out of Stasis, and they're pretty much unchanged, rotating the ZMP's, they know that this is going to be it for their Lives, and again decide to remain out of Stasis, this time around, getting very close, and going on to live their Lives together. Rodney and John are found in Stasis, John is unconscious, but Rodney is lucid enough to tell the story. Rodney also tells the other John and Rodney of his Relationship with his John, who also wakes up for long enough to tell his younger self that he loves Rodney, and also tells Rodney that too before they both Die. John and Rodney don't know how to act around each other, being told that in another time, you were not only in Love with, but spent a Lifetime with someone, does tend to make things awkward.
Sheppard, McKay, Teyla and Ronon are preparing to go Offworld, when someone comes through the Gate unscheduled. Rodney McKay comes through the Gate, and it is definitely Rodney, only he's much older. His Wormhole hit a Solar Flare, and sent him back in time; he explains that he just destroyed his Atlantis. The Wraith had taken the City, Rodney himself had been Fed upon, and it was the only choice, but throughout the meeting, this Rodney can't take his eyes off of Sheppard. John is made a little uncomfortable, and Future Rodney admits that his Sheppard was killed, but there's also something more. Talking to Future Rodney privately, he tells John that they had been together, and that his John had died saving his Life, had died saving everyone's lives. John is spending a lot of time with Future Rodney, it's Rodney, but he's tempered, the way he speaks to John, is so easy, and so comfortable, for both of them, and they get very close, but Future Rodney is Dying, and John is desperate to find another Wraith, to reverse the Feeding, like it was reversed for him. Future Rodney Dies, after an undisclosed amount of intimacy between them, John is left with things unresolved, and his own Rodney having been pushed entirely to the side throughout his Counterpart's visit.
Sheppard and McKay are doing reconnaissance on Wraith movements, and have taken a jumper through a Space Gate, but heading back, something goes terribly wrong, and the Stargate is destroyed. They're nowhere near another Stargate, Daedalus in back in the Milky Way, is weeks away from Pegasus, and even further away from them. There are no inhabitable planets in the system, so they set course for the next, in hopes of finding one, but they're alone. Even if they do find a habitable planet, they're still going to be alone together, and right now, in a very small jumper, with very little food.
Take the situation in "Unending" in Sg-1 and switch to Atlantis personal. Sheppard, McKay, Teyla, Carson, and whoever else you can think of. Have fun :-)
McShep in the Terminator Universe
Texas born and raised John Sheppard, was raised to be Homophobic, and never exactly had a problem with that, after all, he loved girls, and nothing else interested him. Everything changes though when he meets Rodney McKay, someone that provokes his Homophobia, not necessarily because Rodney is Gay him, but because John is attracted to him.
An Ancient Device swaps Sheppard and McKay Consciousness', and it doesn't seem straightforward to swap them back. John hates being in Rodney's Body, feeling so unfit in comparison, and so out of shape, he's no match for Teyla when sparring, or Ronon when running, and starts pushing himself to get in shape, but falls foul of Rodney's Body's Hypoglycaemia, and Allergies. Rodney on the other hand is loving the change, he's fit, thin, and getting more than a little attention from people. He starts showing off the Body that John always underplayed, how strong it is, how effortless things are for him, and Rodney finds how much he likes Citrus. To John's he also rubbing it in; and Rodney is really getting on his nerves. He's jealous, he misses the attention, and he wants his Body back, but what's worse, is that he's actually a little attracted to himself.
