Deleted scene shenannigans  
I'm writing the sequel to [A Whole World of Trouble] and I have a scene that amused me greatly to write, but which just doesn't fit. Enjoy the nuttiness -- John and Rodney are debating whether or not it's neighborly (John) or insane (Rodney) to show up at church on Easter:

"This is the same church that preaches we're going to hell!" Rodney splutters.

"Well, sure, but there'll be cobbler after," John offers. "Besides, I don't think they're much with sodomy on Easter Sunday. Everyone mostly just dresses up nice, visits some."

Rodney waves his hands, distressed. "Why can't we visit them at the Grill? Or the Troub?"

"Cause it's funnier when folks are in ties?" John suggests. Rodney makes a strangled noise that John figures is an embolism for half a second before he's pushed back against the kitchen counter and kissed within an inch of his life. "Was it the sodomy or the ties that did it?" he asks weakly when the kiss breaks.

"Do I have to choose?" Rodney pants.

John thinks for a second. "Guess not," he says, and doesn't object overmuch when Rodney drags him to the floor.

A Whole World of Trouble [soundtrack]  
The Honky Tonk AU is done, and posted over at [ profile] sga_flashfic: [A Whole World of Trouble: NC17].

Since it's hard to get into the spirit of John singing his heart out on a Saturday night without the music, you can download a soundtrack of the songs referenced in the story [here], password 'cowboy'. Enjoy!

honky tonk AU addendum  
Think of the movie Thelma and Louise.

Remember the scene in the motel room, where Brad Pitt's half undressed and rocking his hips back against the dresser, just watching Thelma?

Yeah. That's gonna be John.

You know what SGA fandom really needs? The AU where John's a country singer in a honky tonk, too good for the town he's singing in, too lazy to actually get a career bigger than the one he has, content to sing his songs on a weekend and drink beer with his buddies and work construction in the meantime. And Rodney's working at some big shot university, miserable and lonely (not that he'd admit it) and he ends up in John's bar one Friday night, nursing a beer and thinking miserably about how he hates the south, but then John steps up to the mike and . . . oh. And John thinks this slant-mouthed scientist guy who sticks out like a sore thumb is amusing and fascinating all at once and they end up buddies. I bet John tries to teach him to fish. Among other things :>
