John Sheppard's grandmother is dying, she raised John after his parents were killed, and they've always been very close, until last year, when their relationship was strained to breaking point, and when John met and married a woman that he purposed to love. John's grandmother saw this woman for what she was; she disliked her, and rightly so, because she knows, knows that she is not who John is meant to be with, and even refused to give her, her wedding ring. John is made to choose between his grandmother, and his wife, and it's the hardest thing that he's ever had to do, but he chose his wife, who then prevented him from even visiting his grandmother, until it was too late. John's grandmother was a wealthy woman, and John is the only beneficiary, but in the reading of her will, she has left money to the charities, and foundations that she supported, the Ring, she has left to one Rodney McKay, and absolutely nothing to John. They're literally left with nothing, the house that they live in, John's money, it's all gone, and John's wife wants to dispute the will, but John was expecting something like this, it's just what his grandmother would do, because she knew that the money was only a burden to him, that he didn't want it, but what he does want is to meet Rodney McKay. Shortly after John stopped seeing his grandmother, she met Rodney, and they became close friends, especially in the last year of her life. John wants to get to know, but what he doesn't expect, is to fall in love with him.

Johnís wife is in heaven, and sets about spending the money with no regard for John, who only want is to meet Rodney McKay.

While on a mission, John Sheppard gets extremely drunk, and allows himself to be fucked for the first time. He's never been with a man before, and is completely freaked out by it the next day; he's uncomfortable, embarrassed, and humiliated. John knows that he's got to hide it, from Teyla, Ronon and Rodney, and when he gets back to Atlantis. He's also worried, because it was most definitely not safe sex. When he overhears Rodney talking about something he saw last night, John mistakenly believes that Rodney saw him, and accidentally Outs himself to him. John is hypersensitive around other guys, reading too much into everything, and getting quite angry, the worst part is that he's curious, curious to explore his body that bit more, but he can't be doing this, it's not who he is. The only person he has to talk to is Rodney, and that is very awkward for them both.
When in control of Atlantis, the Replicators recreated their extension of the City into a massive complex, and teams have been selected to explore the new City. Sheppard and McKay are one of these teams, Teyla and Ronon another. It's going to take weeks to catalogue the new labs, quarters, and with more power demands, exactly how many ZPM's they're now in possession of. One thing that this is going to mean, is a much larger contingent from Earth can be stationed on Atlantis. Time spent alone together, John and Rodney realise exactly how much time they spent together before Atlantis, and when it wasn't made so easy, on earth as well. When they weren't having dinner, they were phoning each other, they do have feelings for each other, closer than either really wants to admit to, in anything other than a joking way, but is there more, and if there is, do they even want to find that out. They make the decision that while they're away from everyone else, to try being together, to test the water. The physicality is awkward, but the intimacy has always been there, what they don't know if being together is a natural progression, or if they're forcing something.
Discovering a Time Dilation Device on Atlantis, Sheppard and McKay are unaffected by its affects, as everyone else in Atlantis begins getting older, rapidly aging by decades in a matter of hours. When someone actually dies of old age, Weir evacuates the City. Escaping to the Mainland with the Daedalus' help, and once out of the Device's range, those affected begin to return to normal. Rodney and John remain to try and deactivate the Device, and although they're not aging, time is passing much faster within the City, and they're spending months together.
This is for a threesome Atlantis/Sheppard/Mckay which is not nearly common enough.
The Team decides to go back to the World that they found Teyla and the Athosians on, to explore the Ancient ruins that they were never able to. Inside they find a Device; that accidentally activates, causes Sheppard to disappear. It has sent John back in time, McKay is able to bring him back, but not at the same moment that he arrived. He was sent Thousands of Years into the Past, and had nowhere to go, he couldn't reverse the process, the Athosians wouldn't even arrive in his Lifetime, and the Ancients had already left Pegasus. John has been alone for a long time, and has actually gone a bit mad. His Hair has grown out, and he's acting like he's Drunk. The Team take John back to Atlantis, but nothing is working to snap John out of his state of mind, maybe nothing can. Rodney tries to get through to his Friend, but John has changed, in more ways than one.
The Wraith Mind Altering Device made Sheppard remember something else from his time in Afghanistan, that when it had looked hopeless, he and another Officer had had Sex. It's something that John has never admitted to, just chalking it down to circumstance, only Sheppard had tried to re-enact this with McKay while under the Device's influence, and are both feeling very uncomfortable with each afterwards.
An accident creates two identical John Sheppard's, with no way of distinguishing which is the original. With no way of reversing the process, it's not a bad thing, two John Sheppard's are better than one, and Atlantis benefits. The only problem is that John Sheppard had been in a relationship with Rodney McKay, and both want to continue it, but no one is willing to share, and with no way of distinguishing the original, and both of them the same, Rodney can't choose between them, and they both set about trying to win his affections over the other.
Slash or Gen. John/Rodney or John&Rodney friendship.
Prompt: After an accident, John (or Rodney) was turn into some kind of creature that only feed on Wraiths. (Not like how the Wraith feed on human, no.) Moreover, every time a Wraith comes within 10 feet of John (or Rodney), it either wants to fight/flight or, in most case, paralyzed with terror. Everyone should be pleased with this change, but Rodney (or John) doesn't.
It wasn't Rod that travelled from another Reality; it was John Sheppard's own counterpart. He's a pissy little bitch, Rodney McKay without the charm, and is somehow antisocial and lecherous at the same time. Not being in the Military, he's quite unrestrainedly Gay, coming onto every guy that he meets, and doing it in a clumsy; and offensive way. John can't stand him, and is both embarrassed, and angry at everyone seeing this version of him. He has a superiority complex; the man hates women, and even looks down on the men that he comes onto, seeing everyone as being below him intellectually. One person however catches Dr. Sheppard's attention, and he makes a play for Rodney McKay. Rodney wants to try and get to know this version of his Friend, but the play, and Rodney not immediately shooting Dr. Sheppard down, incenses John for reasons that he's not quite able to admit to.
When the Ancients returned to Earth, and evacuated the Pegasus Galaxy, they didn't abandon Atlantis, and were able to slip past the Wraith, and fly the City back to Earth. Once they had either Ascended, or Died, Atlantis was left abandoned, and the Second Generation of Humans on Earth, evolved with the City present in their History. Over time, Atlantis was entered, those that didn't possess the Gene could do nothing, but those that did, would use the Atlantis' weapons and defences for their own purposes. It was a point of contention, and cause of many Wars between peoples. Sat smack in the middle of the Atlantic, it has been in dispute for Years, with no one Country allowing another to occupy the City, but it is now under the control of an International Committee, lead by Dr. Elizabeth Weir. Carson Beckett is trying to find people with the Gene, and unexpectedly finds it in a Pilot flying personnel in from the Mainland, Major John Sheppard. Rodney McKay, who has been studying Ancient Technology all of his life, has been brought in from Area 51, and working with Sheppard, is be able to get access to Atlantis' systems. John and Rodney become quite the pair, exploring Atlantis, activating systems, and sometimes spending days entirely alone in the City.
