The people of Atlantis can, for the most part, be divided into two groups, geeks and goons. They understand that they need each other, that they each contribute to the survival of them all. But they don’t always understand each other very well. This is a series of stories about that.
Why You Should Read This:
Someone mentioned this series the other day and it reminded me how much I like these stories.
They started off as a series of gen stories by koschka. Later, likeariver joined in and together likeakoschka did another series, this time definitely slash. I’ll talk here about the slash stories, but really it’s all great and fortunately there is a .pdf of the entire series. The link in the title above goes to the list of slash stories by likeakoschka, but check out the rest of the stories as well available here if you have a Google account (sorry, but you can’t see it if you don’t).
The slash stories alternate between a John and Rodney POV. John and Rodney are married and happy together. Or at least they would be if things didn’t keep on trying to kill one or the other or both of them, which keeps getting in the way of all the fluff. The stories are plotty as hell and full of excellent suspense, action/adventure, angst and hurt/comfort. They are also funny. As light as the overall feel of them is, they are very intense and the contrast leaves you holding your breath sometimes. Re-reading them now has been been a treat. Everyone who enjoys SGA will love these.
