You came up with a believable reason for Sheppard to be evil and you ran with it. It's sad about McKay, but honestly, this isn't the kind of train-wreck scenario that leads to happy fluffy endings. I particularly like the unrepentant gleefulness alien!sheppard.
Chapter 1: Part 1 of 12

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.)

I'm a sucker for miscommunication. And I love this uncertain!Rodney, protective!John dynamic.

Terrifying like true horror should be.
Chapter 1: Patchwork

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.

Something about the idea of Zelenka leaping on Sheppard like a cheetah on a gazelle made me laugh insanely. I know it was a throw away line, but ... the imagery. And then Rodney knowing he should be saving the city but not being able to give a shit...

All in all, very very hot.

Author's Response: Thanks very much!

Arizona by seperis [NC-17]

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.

Nice AU, interesting backstory. There's just a smattering of Stockholm syndrome going on, which I absolutely loved (and honestly thought was rather realistic).

Author's Response: Thank you very much!
