Looking through the Family Photos, John finds Pictures of his Father, his Grandfather, and even his Great-Grandfather, all with the same man. A beautiful man, looking to be in his mid 30's in all three series' of Pictures. John's Father is dead, he actually killed himself when he was a Baby; and John's Mother, like every woman in his Family, had abandoned him after he was born. John was raised by his Grandfather, his namesake, who's now in an Old Peoples' Home. John quizzes his Grandfather, who tells the story of the man; of Rodney, who had been Lover to every male descendant in their Family, and who he claims was an 'Ancient', whatever that is. He met John's Ancestor, and they fell in love, but Rodney didn't want to deny his Love the Family he craved, even after he was Married and a Father, their affair continued until the day he died, Rodney was that loyal. By this time, his Son was of age, and too fell in love with Rodney, this pattern continued, but John's Father couldn't live without Rodney and had killed himself. John wants to meet Rodney, angry about his Father, but also curious, and meeting him, Rodney isn't what John expected, and he falls in Love with him too, he doesn't want a Family, and Rodney mentions something called 'Ascension'.
In order to stay on Atlantis, John Sheppard started sleeping with one of the returning Ancients, and now a year later, and firmly established in a relationship with her, he's able to bring Rodney McKay back to Atlantis. John's changed, he's an honouree Ancient, talks like them, has even started to think like them, and hasn't had any contact with anyone on Earth in his time with them. Rodney, although glad to be back, has absolutely no respect for what John is doing, or for the act that he feels putting on, this isn't the John Sheppard he knew. A few walls begin to breakdown, and John starts to get angry at Rodney's disapproval, that anger spills over into something more, and before they know it, they start sleeping with each other, and after admitting that's the relationship that they both want, are now faced with not just a woman scorned, but an Ancient.
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.)
: 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.
The Ancients are still in control of Atlantis, and Sheppard and McKay have asked to return, surprisingly the Ancients are allowing this. It's not exactly the homecoming that they hoped, this is the Ancients' city, and there's not really anything for John and Rodney to do. The Ancients look on Rodney as though he was incompetent, Rodney's knowledge of Atlantis paling in comparison to theirs, and they're dismissive of him. One scientist is different, and Rodney feels an affinity for him. John is feeling even more put out than Rodney, the Ancients are more skilled in flying the Jumpers than he is, but like with Rodney, one Ancient is different, and he sets about teaching John how to fly like he does. Without realising it, both John and Rodney are getting involved with these Ancients, and the Ancients consider these full blown relationships. What John and Rodney don't know is if it's anything that they want, being with men. They only have each other to talk to about it, and ironically, they're the only men each other could ever have imagined being with.
Sheppard/Lorne slash, our two favorite flyboys are accidentally outed to the expedition. Any rating, humor is always a wonderful thing; any length.
Dr. Weir was killed shortly after arriving in Atlantis, and since it's a Civilian Expedition, McKay is left in charge. This is was out of Rodney's comfort zone, even though Sheppard is in a similar position, now Ranking Military Officer, and that they hardly know each other, Rodney still needs John's help in making this work for all of them.
Sheppard thinks that he's getting forgetful, asking for people in Departments who don't seem to be there, he assumes that it's just to do with crew rotations, and people coming and going on the Daedalus, but when he looks into things, he finds that there are no records of these people ever having been in Atlantis, people from his Life are disappearing, with those around him not remembering them at all. John is trying desperately to remind them, but the rewriting of their memories is eerily familiar, making John doubt himself. What starts with people on the edge of his perspective, moves on to those closest to him, and for each change, those that are left have their versions of history reconfigured to accept it, until one by one, only Sheppard and McKay are left, Rodney with no memory of it ever being any other way. Atlantis is deserted, with just John and Rodney left, and for Rodney, his relationship with John is the only relationship he has ever had, and for John, the only relationship that he has left.
McKay discovers one of the Ancient Communication Devices that Daniel Jackson used to reach the Ori Home Galaxy, but accidentally activates it himself, and his Consciousness is sent into someone there. Dr. Weir knows that if the Ori get a hold of Rodney, learn of Atlantis, or are able to track the signal, that they will begin an invasion of the Pegasus Galaxy as well. Sheppard is elected, well offers, well insists, on using the Device to get Rodney back, with his Gene; he might have more control over the process. Arriving in the Ori Home Galaxy, he finds Rodney, and their relief at finding each other leads to a surprisingly physical manifestation for both of them, as well as a Heresy to the Ori.
Rodney McKay has always had a terrible relationship with his Mother, she never wanted kids, let alone a relationship with them, and that suits Rodney just fine, he’s a grown man, works for the US Government, and has no real desire to see her ever again. Rodney’s Sister Jeannie however, has always tried to make an effort with their Mother, and when she asks Rodney to come home for a visit, he begrudgingly agrees. What he finds is that their Mother has taken up with an Air Force Colonel, half her age. Rodney sees this man, this John Sheppard, as a nothing more than a gigolo, and if he actually cared about his Mother, he’d be worried, but she has a palpable distaste for her Son, something that John takes notice of, and doesn’t like one bit.
John is Ori, and Rodney an Alteran. The Ori despise the Alterans, and they're in the middle of a bitter War, with John and Rodney no being different, they hate each other, but there's something more between them, and although forbidden, they fall in Love. The Alterans are planning to leave the Galaxy, and John must either abandon his people; or Rodney. He leaves with Rodney, joining the Alterans, but he's been bred to despise them, and is distrusted, in case he reveals their New Galaxy's location to the Ori.
Carson is acting strange for some time and his friends are trying to find out what is wrong with him,since he insists he is fine!They discover that he is in a relationship with someone but its seams that he is abused by him!!Carson isn't trying to end the relationship or report the man because he fears that a secret he has kept will come out!!Can they help Carson out of this situation and will he be able to trust someone again?Beckett/McKay or Beckett/Sheppard slash or Team friendship!
Everyone knew that the CIA had tried to recruit Rodney after building a non-working model of a nuclear device in 6th grade, what they didn't know was that he had accepted. He is accepted into a program which trained talented young men and women and upon his 18th birthday is allowed to complete missions. His genius extends to what he learned in the program. He is an expert martial artist, and know everything that a skilled black-ops can do. Eventually Rodney is invited to Atlantis, and although he is retired he is given permission to break cover if the situation requires it. On an offworld mission he runs into a situation that needs his skill. John is in for a surprise, but his surprise is not as great as the others. The real Meredith Rodney McKay appears.
The Ancients left an entire city on Earth, structures and towers covering the entire surface of the planet; that the humans who followed have always lived in. Some humans don't have the gene, others have had it artificially imposed, and time is spent maintaining the City, and continuing the Ancients Research and Experiments. John Sheppard did't grow up in the city, his parents lived on the mainland with the others that wanted a life not ruled by technology, they're not fanatical, but just prefers the mainland. The people who live in the city respect those that live on the mainland, and it's friendly, with people coming and going all the time. John has had a great life so far with his friends Teyla and Ronon, but has always wanted to fly, and seeing the Jumpers flying over head is just too much temptation for him. With the city new to him, he needs some help, and also the go ahead, and training to get his hands on a Jumper. No one is going to just give John a Jumper, and it's going to be tough to find someone willing to give up their time to train him, he never knew it, but John has the gene, and that attracts the attention of Rodney McKay, someone that can make John's dreams of flying, become a reality. Rodney's not a pilot, but is willing to give John his time, if with his gene, John helps him access a lot of the city's systems he hasn't been able to before.
The IOA has pulled the plug, and cancelled the Atlantis expedition. They've decided to abandon the Pegasus Galaxy, and thus eliminate the treat of the Wraith, but they don't plan to abandon Atlantis itself. It's been decided that the city should be brought back to the Milky Way. Teyla and Ronon are furious about that, they see Atlantis as the best hope of defeating the Wraith, and feel that it was left for them, and the people of Pegasus. The IOA has made its decision though; Daedalus won't be making anymore trips, and with Atlantis, goes the only Stargate capable of reaching Earth. The evacuation is slow and steady over the course of several weeks, until only a skeleton crew is left, with McKay and Sheppard left in charge of flying the city home. They have to decide whether to go through with it, and continue on Atlantis in the Milky Way, or essentially steal the city and stay in Pegasus.
When the Shield began to fail, the Expedition evacuated Atlantis before the Failsafe raised the City to the surface, they left before it happened, and not believing it possible to return, never found out. They travelled to another World, and with Teyla and the Athosians, all now essentially Refugees, they set up Camp together. They have nothing, and do try sending Teams through the Gate to gather supplies, and try to find Allies, but they're alone, and don't even know each other. Sheppard and McKay get to know each other.
