Hi, i have been trying to come up with a story that involves Rodney's musical skills seeing as they have yet to get into it on the show. However, i am not the greatest author and tend to lean towards poetry and art, so, i'd like to pose a challenge: My idea was that Lorne's team gets held by the locals on a planet, the locals consider art and music to be above all other trades. In the course all negotiations fail and after they find out that they are music lovers, Rodney, as a last resort offers to give them something in exchange for the team. Everyone is obviously shoked about this and wonder what he could bring to the table yada, yada, yada. He then goes away for a few hours (no others allowed, you can show him writing and playing but the others are banned), one of the things i wanted for this is that he is shy about his abilities as a musician (thought it would be fun...yes, yes smite the evil challenger ;>). After returning to the control room he has a tape *Oooooooo* (it should be of ancient design on a crystal or something that would be compatable with the aliens systems) but the aliens demand that they hear the tape before any bargins aremade in case they are being duped. After a lot of arguing his case he relents and plays the tape, everyone is shoked at the quality, intensity of emotion and the beauty of the piece (all the while Rodney's extremely nervious) and the aliens accept the tape as the think its an acceptable payment for the team. Turns out that all of it was writen and played by Rodney on a piano the Daedalus brought from earth, he still thinks that his playing is crap and the others strongly disagree, I loved the scene from 'Breaking walls' on FF.net, suggest you read the early chapters at least to get my meaning. Fab fic! That's everything i would like, feel free to change little bits but not so much that it changes the story and you can finish it however you like, on one condition: Lorne's team come back safely. (could maybe do a nice little scene when he tells sheppard his story) --------- Thanks for taking the time to read this! I would appreciate an email if you decide to tackle the story so i can read it! Have fun!

John the mathematician.

Slash or Gen. Wraith/Rodney or Wraith&Rodney friendship. (That Wraith must be male. It could be a OMC or Michael Kenmore or, if you really want, a Wraith!Sheppard.)

Prompt: Rodney McKay gets stuck on an uninhabited planet for 15 months, and his only company is a Wraith. There is no way for McKay and this Wraith to contact Atlantis or a Hive. Even though there was no other human on this planet, there are plenty local plant and wild life to support a human need for living. For survival, the Wraith needs to keep Rodney alive and healthy, and the astrophysicist rewards by letting the Wraith feed on him now and than. After some struggle on each side, they set in this life. They bonded with each other eventually.

(Someone finally finds them fifteen months later, but whether they go back, stay on that planet, or if they separate or stick together is up to the writer. What happen next, or what won’t happen next, is also up to the writer.)


Radek never learned to swim. Ronon teaches him how. May include any level of relationship that you are comfortable with, or are inspired to write. Bonus points for first time, tentative sweetness, and slashy goodness. You may mention the events of Grace Under Pressure, Sateda, and anything else you see fit. Include teasing!Rodney, smirking!John (or vice-versa), and knowing!Teyla. Further bonus points for working Lorne/Parrish and background Sheppard/McKay in somehow.

In this Alternate universe, McKay Acended, and has since learned the wisdom and power of the Ancients. However, he interferes with the events of the Replicator beam in "First Strike", totally destroying the beam and Replicators. As punishment for breaking the Ancient laws, Mckay is condemned to watching over the entire Atlantis population and City. He soon becomes theri Guardian Angel, but misses the normal interactions he once had with them. He also wished he could be closer to John Sheppard, with whom he had an infatuation with. The only way to be with him is for John to become an Ancient. But John wouldn't choose to Ascend...or would he? You may write any outcome, be it angst, rejection, betayal, or even character death. Your choice. Only one rule: Have FUN!!!

Write an anthology of 10 individual stories, all centered around the theme that something, or someone is lost.

This challenge is to explain what I am looking for in the stories that I hope will be coming in for my series. Eventually it will hold two different timelines one that is in cannon through the very beginning of 'The Return' and the other will be in cannon up through 'Brain Storm', though I am looking for stories from Atlantis' POV during the episodes for both these timelines. I would also like it if it didn't outright contridict anything that has already been published as part of the series. Thirdly this sereis will end up being McShep though other pairings for both obviously have to be used. Also if you hav an idea for a story but don't want to write it send it along, I'll make sure you get the credit for the idea.

Plot bunny for adoption. Product of copious lurking. Does exactly what it says on the tin. I was inspired by a vid that shows Gibbs smacking his team round the head, and a clip of John doing the same to Rodney, but I've never actually seen an episode of NCIS so I'm sending out the challenge. Almost anything goes, but a head smacking scene/referance would be nice. You could try; *Gibbs similarity to Sheppard *Gibbs relationship with Jenny Shepard and the miniscule spelling difference. *Cynthia Sumner and Col. Sumner *NCIS investigations leading them into the Atlantis expedition or "bluebook project" marine corps

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:)

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.

This is an AU of any and all versions of Robinhood. Substitute names/characters at will. Personally, I think Ronon would make a great Little John. Have fun!

Ronon has to leave Atlantis for Earth for some reason (maybe to train the SGC soldiers to fight the Wraith, because that's apparently going to become an issue since Midway), but when he steps through the event horizon, there's a glitch.

Glitch causes temporal shift and shoves Ronon to the wrong end of the galaxy on the wrong end of hundreds of years later. He's on a backwater moon, on the Rim when he steps through an ancient, decrepit gate that flares to life for just a moment before powering back down again. He's stranded.

He makes his way to a rading outpost where Serenity happens to be docked. Mal and the crew are there to make some job, and the first person Ronon runs into is Mal, who notices he's a bit out of place and offers him a lift on Serenity. Hijinks ensue.

Bonus points for hooking Kaylee and Ronon up.

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 becomes a host for either a Goa'uld or a Tok'ra while off world and returns to SGA or SGC where it gets discovered. Tell the story about how this happens, whether he's aware it's happened or not and what happens next. Must be based around John and involve at least 1 member from SG1

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 :-)

I double dog dare you to write a story, a ficlet, a drabble - SOMETHING - involving John, Rodney and this item. Straight up SGA, AU, Xover with SPN, your call. I just really need to know what happens! "What item?" you may ask. Well, let me tell you! Apparently, the awesome super powers of telepathy, cryokinesis, psychometry, chronokinesis, invisibility and teleportation can all be yours! They are only a bid away...
on eBay!!!
So. I gotta wonder if it might be an Ancient artifact. It would make sense, with all those powers... On with the challenge: Write a story! Uhm. Please?

I'm tired of skipping over stories because of John/Rodney slash. Let's have some interaction between the two as JUST FRIENDS. They are held captive off-world by an mad scientist who infects John with a retrovirus that turns him into something not human (other than Wraith or iratus). Rodney has to defeat the mad scientist, find the data needed to turn John back into a human, keep John from going crazy and killing him, and get them both back to Atlantis.

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.


The Ancients didn't lose the war and so, never went back to earth. The Goa'uld still have a strong foothold in the galaxy but the humans are putting up a pretty good fight. Now the stargate activates and someone(s) from Atlantis steps through into the SGC gate room. What happens next? Will the Ancients be good or evil? Will there be war?

I watched a beautiful fanVid, and i thought a fic would accompany it nicely. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tv3zPl6t79E
