Sheppard has just seen McKay killed in front of him, he can't believe that it's just happened, and even visiting Rodney's body in the Infirmary doesn't make it real to him. Someone has to sort through Rodney's personal effects, and it's not fair the bring Rodney's sister to Atlantis, just to do that. John decides that it's something that he should do, as well as breaking the news of Rodney's death to Jeanne personally. During the journey to visit Jeannie, John reads Rodney's journal, and although he doesn't come out and say it, the way that Rodney writes about John, and they way that John feels about reading it, he knows that they had been in Love. Talking to Jeannie about Rodney, it's John that breaks down, admitting to himself what he couldn't when Rodney was alive. Now on the journey back to Atlantis, John knows that he can't do this without Rodney, he doesn't want to, and he's desperate to find a way to bring him back. SG-1 have brought people back from edge before, and even changed history, and John is willing to do whatever it takes to get Rodney back.
The worst thing that ever happened to John Sheppard, even taking into account his time in Afghanistan and the Pegasus Galaxy, happened when he was in his 20's, when along with his so-called friends, he participated in a Rape. Maybe that's the reason that even today, John can't commit to a relationship, because either the memory of that time comes back to haunt him, or the fear of what the other person would think of him if they found out. Now he's in a relationship with Rodney McKay, and what was the closest, most compensable Friendship, aspects that should have translated naturally into a Relationship, have made a painful, hate filled experience for John.
Not able to handle his feelings for Rodney McKay, or for their relationship, John Sheppard has an affair, well not an affair exactly because it's just sex, no better than what he's getting from Rodney, in actuality it's worse, but it's with a woman, and that's what John needs, to reassure his Heterosexuality, something that he's not willing to abandon. He doesn't want to be Gay, he isn't Gay, he just happens to have feelings for Rodney, and he likes to have sex with Rodney, but why does it have to be more than that. Maybe it is denial, but John loves women, and he doesn't want to give them up, even for Rodney. The problem is that Rodney catches John's indiscretion, and he's crushed, John does feel bad, and wants to explain that it doesn't mean anything, but also that can't say that it's never going to happen again. John's still not giving in to his feelings, and there's so much to work through, but now with Rodney broken-hearted, and distrustful, is that even anything that either of them want to do?

Now Rodney McKay is in that position.
Everyone is Atlantis looses their memory, and are stripped back to the basics of their of their personalities, no one knows who they are, except for John Sheppard, and Rodney McKay, because their immediate attraction to each other is enough proof to them that they're together. They don't hold back, and with nothing but instinct driving them, they jump straight into a relationship, the consequences of which they have to face when they recover their memories.
In another Dimension, the Ori discovered Pegasus, destroyed the Wraith, and enslaved the People, although they saw it as liberation from Wraith, and embraced Origin gladly. When the Expedition came to Atlantis, they were introduced to Origin, and were also converted, most of them becoming Priors, and heading back to Earth. An accident causes Prior Sheppard to change places with Sheppard from our Dimension. While the Prior sets about trying to convert everyone, McKay tries to get through to him, and in the other Dimension, John tries to get through to Prior Rodney.
Along with Rodney McKay, it was a Wraith that was caught in the Beam, and taken into the Dart, instead of Laura Cadman. What they were able to recover was the body of the Wraith, but with Rodney in control. Everyone is terrified of Rodney, he can’t do anything right, especially when he accidentally starts feeding off of someone. John Sheppard is the only one to try and see through Rodney’s outward appearance, and he sees his Friend, someone that he Loves; and that maybe only now he realises exactly how much.
Well I really like the charcter of Michael Kenmore and I've been extrememly disappointed by the lack of Wraith-based stories. I challege EVERYONE to write a story either about Michael's past before he was infected with the retro-virus or about how he is now. I would like there to be snippets of his feelings while he was with the Atlanteans throughout the story. Thanks:)
I would like a story about a planet full of Men or Women the size of Ronan you choose. They Capture John Sheppard and turn him into a Slave. They can controll him by a Slave Collar or by using Drugs you choose which. I would like a beging, Middle and End ie: The Capture and the Despair at not being rescued and then the Rescue and how he deels with the aftermath of the attack on his person. I would really like a long story if at all possible.
Categories: None Characters: John Sheppard
Dr. Weir wasn't able to beat the Replicator Infection, and died. Everyone is numb, but the IOA don't give anyone time to grieve, and want to appoint a new leader, but everyone can agree that they don't want anyone else. Sheppard proposes that Rodney take over, since he's a civilian, and is already on Atlantis, he's eligible, and John supporting him will carry some weight. Rodney doesn't want it, and wants to know why John is steering him towards being in charge.
Sheppard is having nightmares, and panic attacks from the Wraith feeding off him. He keeps seeing himself as that old man, and is obsessively running, and training, trying to prove to himself that he's not that old man, but it's not enough, he still needs more, he needs to have sex.
In the middle of nowhere, John took over the running of his Family's Motel from his Mother, who 'lives' with him in the large house behind. John was obsessed with his Mother, and when she died, couldn't let her go, literally, keeping her body, and her alive by dressing and talking as her. When a young woman, Jeanne McKay arrives, wanting to stay in the Motel, John likes her, but his 'Mother' doesn't, and kills her. Jeanne's Brother Rodney comes looking for her, and John likes him even more, and something begins between them, but 'Mother' is just as unhappy with Rodney. (An Au version of the movie "Psycho".)
McKay asks Sheppard to turn on a device he *thinks* is supposed to help you stay awake but the Ancients never were good at labeling their toys and things always get lost in translation. Turns out, the artifact is supposed to enlighten adults to the way adolescents view the world. Soon after the device is activated, everyone in Atlantis starts to experience signs of going through puberty (acne, horniness,mood swings, and all the fun physical stuff). Major points for humor! Can include any characters,pairings, or ratings. Just for laughs.
Categories: General, Slash Pairings > Other Male Pairings Characters: Aiden Ford, Cameron Mitchell, Carson Beckett, Daniel Jackson, Elizabeth Weir, Jack O'Neill, Jennifer Keller, John Sheppard, Major Lorne, Original Character, Other, Radek Zelenka, Rodney McKay, Ronon Dex, Samantha Carter, Steven Caldwell, Teal'c, Teyla Emmagan, Vala Mal Doran
Rodney McKay is a famous Plastic Surgeon, he's rich, naturally good-looking, and together with his Best Friend Carson Beckett; he runs one of the most exclusive Clinics in the US. Everything changes for Rodney in the form of an Air Force Officer that has survived a crash in Afghanistan, and his name is Major John Sheppard. He's been brought Home, and needs Reconstructive Surgery, and although it's not really Rodney's field, he wants to help. Rodney ends up spending all of his time with John, getting to know him, and for the first time, getting to know the person, not the appearance, he begins to fall in love with John. When the reconstruction is complete, Rodney has managed to put John back together exactly as he was, and John is stunning, the most beautiful man Rodney has ever seen, and his best work. Rodney wants to be with him, but doesn't know if John wants to be with him, because even though they've become close, John's a Straight Air Force Major, and will most likely be heading back to Afghanistan.
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.
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.
I was thinking something along the lines of 'Gladiator'. Ronon and John should not know each other in the beginning. Following loosely the story line of 'Gladiator' Ronon (and maybe John as well) is forced to fight for his life in some kind of arena as a gladiator (He is a slave of course to the empire. Be it the Roman Empire or any fictional created alien empire on a strange planet, I do not care) . I imagined John being a captured 'German or whatever' tribe's leader who is very proud and will not bow easily to his new masters at which hands he has to suffer a great deal of pain (torture, humiliation, rape etc... the more shep-whump the better). Ronon takes one look at him and decides that he wants him (He's also quite raptured and fascinated by John's willpower and pride and the way he fights against his capturers). But of course (at this point of time) John would never ever allow another man to touch him without at least killing that man in the process. Their masters on the other hand think it an appropriate punishment for John to be thrown in a cell with a huge man that is likely to rape him. But Ronon is a man of honour and would never take someone without their consent so there is a long journey ahead of those two in which John needs to gain trust and to learn how to love Ronon and Ronon needs to control his raging desire for the man who's in such close proximity to him. Eventually they should end up together (I want some happy fluff moments) but the end of this story can be either happy or sad. I do not care if there is an occasional OOC-moment...in an AU like this that has to be expected. Both John and Ronon shouldn't be too civilised meaning that there can be the one or the other primitive cave-man trait to their characters (we are talking about a society that has slaves and warriors, right? Lot's of wild men running around). Maybe some communication problems can be added (crated by the many different languages and cultures). I like to see all of the stargate characters filling in even the smallest roles so feel free to use whatever SG-1 and SGA folks you want. I love to read long stories (of epic proportions) so please don't make this a short-story. Also I'm a history-freak and appreciate properly researched AU's that deal with the past...(of course that doesn't mean that there has to be a ton of facts in this fanfic! there don't have to be any at all but IF there are I would like them to be correct... but in the case that this story takes place on another planet the history of Earth doesn't matter anyway so who cares?) NC-17 please?? Other pairings are also welcomed! I can't think of any (other) restrictions so I'll leave it like this...
