The consort is more than a little taken aback when his owner gambles with a stranger–an artifact of the Ancestors against a night with the consort–and the stranger wins. But he cannot dishonor his owner, so he goes to the stranger’s room.

 Why You Should Read This:

I’d forgotten about this gem, one of my favorite SGA stories.  The author used elements of The Game Players of Titan by Philip K. Dick  to create an interesting (if not very nice) society.  The story is well written, especially the sex scenes.

Rodney is just plain wonderful in this, smart and vicious. His desperate desire to free an amnesiac!John requires a drastic plan that is completely and utterly Rodney.

When Atlantis – upon returning to the Pegasus Galaxy from Earth – breaks apart in hyperspace, only John is saved from the debris. The group of Ancients that retrieved him offer him a bargain: Either he helps them make corrections in some universes, where things have gone wrong, or they put him back where he was found. Reluctantly accepting, John embarks on a lonely journey through a multitude of universes until he finally reaches the place he could again call home.

Why You Should Read This:

This one is not for a quicky read before bedtime.  It is epic.  John is very much  like Sam Beckett, jumping from universe to universe (some of which are recognizable fan fiction ‘verses) in an effort to make sure things happen the way the Ancient woman who is his controller tells him they must happen. He sees thousands of universes, each one a little or a lot different from he one he came from.  Sometimes the universes are strange: everyone is blue-skinned, or Rodney is a woman, or John is a pregnant man.  Sometimes the universes are very much like the one he knew.  Through it all he knows the Ancients have an ulterior motive, but he doesn’t know what it is.

And over time he realizes two overarching truths:  He is in love with Rodney McKay and he wants to find a home.

Bang by rageprufrock

Title:   Bang
Author:  rageprufrock

Rating: Mature
Warnings:  This is not a story about domestic abuse
Genre:  Humor, Romance, Hurt/Comfort (in a uniquely Rodney style)

Back on Earth, John and Rodney have adjustments to make, of course.  Who knew that the hardest thing for John to adjust to is  doors that don’t automatically get out of his way?

Why You Should Read This:

Okay, yes, there is nothing the least bit funny about domestic abuse and if this was a story about domestic abuse I would be as appalled as anyone that it is so freaking funny.  Funny and sweet.  Cute even.

That said, as far as I am concerned, the doctor who thinks Rodney is beating John and tries (very ineptly) to help is a big damned hero.
