~ 21,500 words, R, McKay/Sheppard (and a wee hint of Dex/Keller)

Summary: Rodney McKay has an opinion on everything, including whether, in times of crisis, John Sheppard has any business risking death. Answer: no, don't be utterly stupid, what kind of ridiculous half-wit are you anyway? Small casting spoiler for season five.

Rating: NC17
Disclaimer: Not mine, not mine, sadly, not mine.
Summary: Amid familial chaos of all kinds, John and Rodney realize something is missing . . . ~20,000 words.

A/N: For [everyone] who donated to [livejournal.com profile] fire_fic for the production of this story – I only wish I could have finished it sooner for you all! Mad thanks to [livejournal.com profile] yin_again for letting me pick her brain, to [livejournal.com profile] girlnamedpixley for figuring out why and where I was stuck (and getting me unstuck!), and to [livejournal.com profile] dogeared for her amazing beta skills once again. Beautiful cover art by the delicious [livejournal.com profile] siriaeve.


It might have been nice, John thinks, pulling suitcases down out of the attic, to have thought ahead – to have taken a couple of weeks of plain old ordinary time for themselves before committing to a trip to Toronto. But thinking ahead is not exactly his family's forte . . . )

Pairing: McKay / Sheppard (SGA)
Disclaimer: Most definitely not mine – but so much fun to play with.
Rating: R
Words: ~12,000
Summary: John inherits a farm, Rodney ends up entirely out of his element, and there is much ado about baseball. Completely AU.
A/N: After [livejournal.com profile] taffetablue finished up A Supermarket in California we couldn't help crack casting John and Rodney in various other locales. This is one result, beta'd by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] taffetablue and [livejournal.com profile] dogeared both, and with cover art by [livejournal.com profile] taffetablue.

There are two, lone corncobs in the back of the truck when John arrives at the farm that first September. He leaves them there with a nod to his grandpa, and lays his baseball bat beside them. It's good to have a little company when he drives, and a guy never knows when he might need to play ball )
