Lt. Col. Denial & Dr. Oblivious

Gay Space Idiots

John and Rodney were a perfect match: the pretty man with secret depths, and the genius with an inferiority complex as large as his ego. There were so many edges and interesting things to say about how they might fit together! It was Beauty and the Beast in Space, but with the wonderful twist that John and Rodney could fit both roles, depending on how you wanted to define "beauty," and, for that matter, "beast."

“““““““`

As epics go? This is probably my favorite.  A complete AU which takes it in a direction i never thought of.  Auburn’s ability to construct a world draws you in almost immediately and the sheer in character ferocity of the differences in everyone keeps you reading to find out what happens next. It’s a bit more feral than the Pegasus we know, for good reason. Also exactly how the Expedition would be with Samantha Carter in charge, with no Dr. Mckay, or a Major Sheppard. How both groups find each other, and in the process construct something pretty damned neat to see. 

It still ends on a note of hope. Which makes it all the better, but you love the journey there.

S5 had its problems, but it had some good episodes - I particularly love “First Contact” and “The Lost Tribe,” and “Infection” has this moment where John confronts Todd that makes me all tingly inside every time I watch it. 

But it also has episodes I like to pretend don’t exist. “The Shrine” is usually on the list, but that’s because of a family history of mental illness that makes it difficult for me to watch for personal reasons. “Brain Storm,” “Identity” and “Inquisition” also top that list. And “The Queen”. And “The Seed.” And “Broken Ties”… A lot of S5 episodes actually.

For me, the moment of canon - the moment when I knew beyond a doubt that McShep was canon and nothing could ever dissuade me otherwise - was the phone call in “The Return.” It was so domestic it hurt. 

Although the way Rodney’s face crumples in “The Siege” when he thinks John is dead… 

Popkin? What do you say we do a “the moments it was so canon it hurt” series? All the faces, in chronological order, with intense this is why its canon tagging? Or is that overly ambitious even for us?

Oh, my heart.  This scene makes me laugh.  Rodney in bed in the infirmary, Sheppard keeping him company and then Teyla coming in and handing him a baby to hold.  It’s like the last scene of an mpreg fic.
