I realize this fandom is probably pretty quiet these days, but I was wondering if anyone in the McShep fandom remembered a long-ish fic (Or maybe two separate related fics, one McKay’s POV and one Sheppard’s) where instead of hallucinating Sam in Grace Under Pressure, Rodney hallucinates John. But, it turns out it actually was John instead of a hallucination, which we find out when we switch to Sheppard’s POV and he finds an Ancient device that sends him (or an astral projection of him?) back to McKay in the downed jumper. I’ve been looking for this fic for days and can’t seem to find it. I was thinking it was on AO3, but since there are over 7500 fics to wade through, it’s slow going.
If you happen to remember this fic, please let me know! I really wanted to reread it!

Do you have that one OTP where you love them so fucking much, that you just can’t, in all kinds of form, ship them with any other character and it hurts your soul just thinking of either one being apart or with another character?
maybe i’ll write that McShep fic that starts with John walking in on Rodney singing into his hairbrush and dancing in rocketship boxers in front of his mirror instead. which was an idea i had after reading way too many fics that started with a puddlejumper crash landing and i couldn’t figure out if i’d read the fics before or if they were going to be any good.
but what would the plot be
john walks in on rodney
becomes upset about the ass of DHew
wonders obsessively if all of his undies are interesting when he’s not on missions (because surely they have seen each other naked all the time and also rodney would totally wear clean boring underpants on missions because who knows what is going to happen and if you’ll end up in your underpants on an alien planet)
employs secret elite military training to try to sneak peeks of rodney’s underpants, fails at being subtle about it
meanwhile rodney freaks out about john hearing him sing and is more embarrassed about that than the underpants dance part
then plot happens somehow
they both end up in their underpants on an alien planet but because of story factors they are in mutually amusing underpants instead of plain ones
then they fall in love idk
McKay/Sheppard - 3x04 Sateda
i just remembered my favorite sga mcshep fic of all time
have you guys read the one where they are girl scout cookies because if you haven’t will be very disappointed
"Wait. So both Thomas and Jimmy are limping around from their "running injuries" and everyone is buying it. But when Rodney gets shot in the ass with an arrow, suddenly I’m getting lectures about being too rough with him."
