A Short List of Stargate: Atlantis Stories
(that I can’t stop re-reading)
Now with added context.
Special Note: This is not a comprehensive list, at all. Even of my current favorites, let alone general recs. Included here are the first ten stories that come to mind as ones that I re-read compulsively, of late.
Two of these are works in progress, three are extreme alternate universes, one is a high school alternate universe, and all of them have John and Rodney having sex in them. The linking qualitiy is the spontaneous need to read them repeatedly. Though the sex in them is important, I think, none of them would cling to me the way that they do without being emotionally powerful as well as hot. I also needed to be able to recognize the John and Rodney I know from SG:A in them. Even when that is extremely disturbing, as in "Crimes".
“Three Fates” and “Four Quarters” both have soundtracks associated with them, and are extended aus with more than one part and artwork as well. The development of the world behind the stories definitely has something to do with the way these universes haunt me. I should mention here that although I do frequently re-read these, it is selective. Generally I go over sections of the story again and again, not the whole work.
Several of these are by well-known writers, but the stories are not chosen based even partly on this.
There are no Ronon stories on the list, as Ronon stories are treasured and doled out in a miserly way, to make them last. Too few, still too few.
There is a lot more I would say, but not without spoiling the stories. If anyone is interested in analysis, tell me and I'll do it under a cut. Meanwhile, please keep your hands inside the car at all times and enjoy the show.
