Summary: The fall of Atlantis came and went with a bang...Now McKay finds himself back at the beginning again. But there is a problem or two.

Comments: I'm very much hooked on this.
Rising Above by Susan [NC-17]

Comments: Weirdly enough I love the hints of backstory strewn through this as much as I love the delicious non-con and mind-fuck. This is a wonderfully fucked up world.

Summary: It's not that Rodney blames himself--exactly--but he does wonder if perhaps making Sheppard wade into the foggy residue to rescue his laptop was maybe a bit of a mistake.

Arizona by seperis [NC-17]
[Reviews - 3]

Summary: Maybe it's just the movies that have given him an unrealistic expectation of assassins, but unless this guy's the most incompetent assassin *ever*--and considering who Rodney McKay is, they wouldn't hire someone *dumb* would they?--really, Rodney should be dead.

Comments: Interesting and believable backstory, and just a smidge of stockholm syndrome.

Summary: Sequel to "Keep Holding On". Rodney is learning his place within the pack, but it's a long journey, and there are a lot of bumps along the road - including an offer Rodney, two months ago, would not have hesitated to take. (Appearances of Characters from SG-1. All pairings excepting McKay/Sheppard background. Spoilers for SG1 Seasons 2 and 3, and maybe more after.)

Comments: Fascinating AU. I love the closeness and family aspect of the characters. And the plot is quite riveting.

Summary: As he walks up the long hallway toward freedom, John is vaguely aware of Elizabeth's voice. She's explaining to Rodney that their release only cost them a few extra bags of milled flax seed and some medical supplies. John knows it cost much, much more.

Comments: When I watched this episode, I knew that someone, somewhere, had to go here -- and here it is, and much more brilliantly than I expected. This story breaks my heart, but in a good way.
The Pack by Nightchaser [NC-17]

Summary: “I can’t believe this ... what have they done to us?” hissed Sheppard, automatically reaching for weapons he knew weren’t there.

“We asked for their defence against the Wraith,” said Ronan. “And they shared it with us.”

Comments: This fic hit my sweet spots. It's probably dead, but I can hope.
