Brilliant! I saw this, watched the first four episodes of the show, read this, and now am sated. Oh, wait... not. I'm hanging on the edge of your cliff and the shrub I'm holding onto is coming loose and my hands are getting sweaty. So I'm gonna favourite this. Keep writing!

Chapter 1: Chapter 1
You Might by deltacephei [NC-17]
[Reviews - 13]

Summary: Starting from a missing scene from The Daedalus Variations this goes AU:
Rodney pored over the files he'd printed out. With every page he turned, this trip felt less and less like a sensible idea. Rodney had no trouble imagining the response he would get when he walked up to Sheppard, a millionaire, and suggested, 'Hey, how about you drop everything, leave your business and your huge mansion, and come with us to another galaxy, where you're probably going to die within a month or two? Are you in?"

Blessed by Mithreon [NC-17]

Summary: John never interrupts Rodney's lesson. AU sequel to When push comes to shove

Warnings aka Read at your own risk: There are very many sick things – incredibly sick things – in this story. I assure you, this *will* squick. Just assume it will be way too much for you and you'll be on the safe side.

Wow.

Way too hardcore for me, (I could maybe (maybe) have got through it without the dom/sub stuff, but then it wouldn't be the same story.)

What I did read was... well, good seems inane, since I was indeed totally squicked, lol, but well written is a given.

I could handle the hardcore if it was just sex, I think the real bit that turned me off is that I'm assuming that Sir is John, but there doesn't seem to be any returned respect between the two any more, their lives have become the scene and all the other great things that they had have been pushed aside. So probably it has a lot to do with my upbringing but in the end I can't help but feel like Rodney's in a domestically violent relationship and want him to free himself, which he won't, so I'm sad... disappointed in him and in Sir.

But you know I love your other stuff, so I can't wait to see more!!!

Ok, obviously since I did not read it all, as stated before, only skimmed it, I've missed that John is not Sir.

And thank god.

This new light puts the story in a whole new context for me because as I said before the bit I couldn't stand was the lack of any semblance of normal between the two, between who I thought were John and Rodney. I read the other reviews and this makes sense now. I'm sad for Rodney, still, of course, but I can much more easily see this Rodney and understand his behaviour. Sorry about the previous review!!!

Anyway, now I would love some sort of retribution fic, where John comes along and takes care of poor Rodney and also /takes care/ of Sir. Come on, you know you want to write it, all Angsty_Rodney not understanding and thinking he's done something wrong, and John Kicking Ass! on sir and the corepral(?) and maybe even setting up some sort of elaberate revenge killing. Yeah, it'll be awesome. I'm imagining it now.....

Author's Response: Thank you very much for your review! As for John taking care of Sir - well, the happy ending happens in the other sequels, so I don\'t know... I\'m more in the mood for more of the creepy stuff. Please, don\'t kill me! ;-)

Great story, great series. Loved loved loved the team at the end.
Chapter 1: Lost At Sea

Summary: That's what you get for not acknowledging the love of your life! (Ascended and bored Major Sheppard decides to meddle a bit in the love lives of a few other versions of himself.)
There is traveling between time and universes and also mentions of m-preg, so be warned. Otherwise it's pretty silly. Humor. Crack. Or something in-between.

I loved this, there is quite a lot you could do with this universe. I also liked how Sheppard was so blatant. I'd love to see him just come down from on high and fake out John and Rodney, that if they don't get together the world will implode... I hope we see more.

a quick aside though, you may want to run this through a spell-checker;
"Alight, let's go."
No, no she might not f the growth was slow enough and I had now problems.

Author's Response: Hey! Thank you for your nice review! My sis and I have already planned to write some more in this universe(s). I\'m glad you like the idea. \r\n\r\nAlso, Thanks for pointing the typos out. I ran this through a spell-check, problem is, it doesn\'t point out words that actually exist like \'alight\', or single letters that stand on their own. I\'ll go fix it. Thanks!

Such an awesome story. It deserves a verse of it's own. I'd love to have seen John's reaction to rodney taking over the world while he was still in jail, and to know their real plan for getting revenge. Living well isn't enough!
