Oookay. Crackfic, anyone? This is my first response to the [livejournal.com profile] story_lottery Round 2, for the prompt "a soap bubble".

McKay/Sheppard(-ish) with a bit of Lorne/Parrish, crack, PG, 4200 words, and did I mention crack? Seriously, complete with singing and dancing. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] trystings for tackling this beta read!

I'll just go and look for my mind now. I seem to have lost it somewhere.

Well then, Play the Music, Light the Lights

ETA:
Now there's a podfic version of this fic! [livejournal.com profile] reena_jenkins recorded it, and it's fabulous! What would Kermit the Frog say? "Applause!"

'You're a Muppet! A Muppet! Jesus, McKay, what did you do now?' )

Dear brain,

I clearly remember the two of us explaining just recently that we usually write happy things — no death fics and other dark stuff. Granted, we were being sarcastic, making our point by strongly claiming the opposite to be true. But still.
And now I find myself waking up one morning with you throwing this at me? There's death. (In a manner of speaking.) And it's dark. That's two out of two. You're doing this on purpose, aren't you?

With a heartfelt *wtf*,
me












In other words:
McKay/Sheppard, PG-13, 1400 words. Angst, sort of death fic, kind of dark. Title from Sting's "The Book of My Life". Beta'd by the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] trystings.

This is a direct sequel for Lifted, which is a tag for Infection. This won't make much sense without reading Lifted first.
Just so you know, this is all [livejournal.com profile] xparrot's fault. It's only fair that she, along with [livejournal.com profile] snarkydame, did the beta work on this one. Thank you, guys!

Rated PG-13, McKay/Sheppard, with McKay/Keller, 3000 words.

This is it, Number 20 of my Tagathon entries! One fic for each S5 episode of SGA: Done!
58037 words in total. 58037 words. That's, like, bigbang size. Holy crap.

Here is a masterlist for all twenty stories on my LJ fic list, or you can browse them using the links at the bottom of each story, starting at the beginning or at the end.

Now, for the last time, this tag for The Queen was written for the Season 5 Tagathon on [livejournal.com profile] sga_episodefic. It's 1000 words of PG-13 rated, gen, Teyla-centric angst.
Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] trystings for the fabulous short-notice beta!

This is a Brain Storm AU, in which Rodney takes John on that secret science presentation date.

8200 words, PG-13, McKay/Sheppard, humor, written for the S5 Tagathon on [livejournal.com profile] sga_episodefic.

Similarities to the episode are a given, similarities to other Brain Storm AUs are entirely incidental, as I've managed to stop myself from reading any so far. Surprisingly little dialog was taken from the episode, but the general plot was.

A really big thank you goes to [livejournal.com profile] snarkydame for the excellent (and quick!) beta job she did on this one!

''What? No, this isn't even remotely like a date, which is why I can't ask her, which is why I'm asking you.' )

Team! Enemy at the Gate very much lacked team moments. Therefore, here: Tag for Enemy at the Gate – 2700 words of gen, team. Written with one laughing and one crying eye for the Season 5 Tagathon on [livejournal.com profile] sga_episodefic. Beta'd by [livejournal.com profile] tacittype and [livejournal.com profile] naye.


Nothing but the wide open ocean stretched out in front of him, and John liked it that way )

This fic follows the SGA episode that is almost fanfic itself: Vegas.

Vegas!John/Vegas!Rodney, pre-slash/friendship, PG-13, ~3300 words. In which John isn't dead. Much.

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] tacittype for the beta!

The One Who Walks In )

This is a tag for Identity, written for the Season 5 Tagathon on [livejournal.com profile] sga_episodefic.
583 words, rated PG. Ronon, Teyla. Gen, with mention of McKay/Keller and Ronon/Amelia.
Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] snarkydame for the quick beta!

This is a PG-rated tag for Infection with one reference to Brain Storm, written for the Season 5 Tagathon on [livejournal.com profile] sga_episodefic.

780 words of one-sided McKay/Sheppard, with mention of McKay/Keller. Needless to say, this is not a happy story. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] trystings for the beta!

This is a tag for Remnants, written because I couldn't not -- oh, and for the S5 Tagathon on [livejournal.com profile] sga_episodefic, of course.

Incidentally, this also marks my thirtieth SGA fic(let). Thirty! If you'd told me where this was headed a year or so ago, I'd have looked at you funny and carefully backed away towards the exit.
Because I was just going to finish that thing with the post-its, and no more. (Seriously, who would want to quit right after writing deathfic? And that very first one almost doesn't count, anyway.)
But after that, no more. No. More. Yeah, right.

Here's the thirtieth one of my no-mores: PG-13, 2000 words, McKay/Sheppard first time, angst. Beta'd by [livejournal.com profile] tacittype. Fabulously, as always.

1) Woohooo! LJ lives!

2) Also: tag for The Prodigal, written for the S5 Tagathon on [livejournal.com profile] sga_episodefic. Just some 800 word gen John-and-Rodney fun. Beta'd by [livejournal.com profile] tacittype.

L.A.B.A.T.Y.D. (Supervillains Excluded) )

unadrift: (team)
This is a missing scene from Inquisition, written for the S5 Tagathon on [livejournal.com profile] sga_episodefic.
It's rated PG, counts 2300 words, and is kind of angsty team comfort – my way of dealing with some of the things that went just wrongwrongwrong with the episode.

Valuable beta advice – and deadline-related subtle ass-kicking – given by [livejournal.com profile] tacittype. Thank you! (For both, actually.)

This is a 4500 word AU-tag for Outsiders, R-ish, written for the S5 Tagathon on [livejournal.com profile] sga_episodefic.
It's humor, bordering on crack. Okay, so this is crack. Mostly at Carson's expense. And it's another McShep first time. What? I'm trying to cope here!
Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] singletailwhip for the last-minute beta!

Rodney would be the first to admit that his memory wasn't good with details of minor importance, but he certainly would have remembered a place where the trees were purple with pink leaves )

Super-fast late night beta by [livejournal.com profile] villainny, who is just awesome like that!

Title: Talk Amongst Yourselves

Rating: PG
Words: ~2500
Notes: Missing scene for First Contact, written for the Season 5 Tagathon on [livejournal.com profile] sga_episodefic, with spoilers for The Brotherhood and Progeny, and for the SG-1 episode Reckoning, Part 2.
This fic was last-minute beta'd by [livejournal.com profile] tacittype (Thank you!), and last-minute tinkered with by me, therefore all remaining mistakes are mine.

'This is familiar.' Rodney's voice is a little higher than usual, Daniel notices. Other than that, there are no indicators for the patented McKay panic attack that is bound to hit Rodney at some point. )

Title: You Might
Author: [livejournal.com profile] deltacephei
Pairing: McKay/Sheppard
Rating: NC-17
Words: ~15000
Notes: This is an AU, starting from a missing scene for The Daedalus Variations, written for the Season 5 Tagathon on [livejournal.com profile] sga_episodefic.
This fic owes a lot to the cheerleading of [livejournal.com profile] tacittype and [livejournal.com profile] naye. They carried me along when it was beginning to look like this was going to be slightly longer than anything I've written so far.
The beta process was a little more extended than I was used to, too. [livejournal.com profile] naye, [livejournal.com profile] tacittype, and [livejournal.com profile] villainny did the most awesome job – all remaining mistakes are, of course, mine.

On top of everything-- I got the best birthday presents ever this year! [livejournal.com profile] naye made cover art for this story! Look:

Isn't this just-- *flails* Go and tell [livejournal.com profile] naye how awesome she is!



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?"

Notes: Tag for The Shrine with a tiny AU spin on the episode, written for the Season 5 Tagathon on [livejournal.com profile] sga_episodefic.

To give credit where credit is due: This was inspired by [personal profile] cesperanza's episode reaction (point eight *g*), it features a couple of lines from the episode, and it was improved by the fabulous beta strike force [livejournal.com profile] naye and [livejournal.com profile] tacittype!

'You can be such an idiot,' Jeannie snaps, and huh, this wasn't quite how she'd intended to start this conversation. )
