In response to several requests, we've added a Lorne/other category to Slash Pairings. In order to do this, we've also added Major Lorne to the list of characters in all categories, as we will not add a character's name to a pairing category unless the character is also listed as a character within the archive character list.
A show character is added to the list if they meet the following criteria:
--The character is in several episodes (as in, at least five) of Stargate: Atlantis, where they make some kind of significant contribution, rather than just being the same face in the background or with the occasional line.
--The character must have both a first and last name in canon. (An exception was made in the case of Major Lorne, because he has been in several episodes of Stargate: SG1 as well as SGA, and has made significant contributions, despite never being given a first name.)
--The character must have had a number of stories submitted to the archive that feature him or her in a significant role.
I hope that explains the process. As usual, if you have any questions about this or anything else to do with the archive, please don't hesitate to contact the archivists. :)
