Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Author: Bone (thisisbone)
Genre: First Time, Character Study, Slash
Rating: PG to NC17
Spoilers: Through Season Two, Lost Boys (so far)
Notes: The first one (Acclimation: Eight Days) is more of a Character Study of Ronon Dex, on his first week in Atlantis (the only PG rated fic.) But it does't take long before the series begins to explore the growing relationship between Sheppard and Dex. (All the rest of the series is rated NC-17.) Each fic is complete in and of itself, but hopefully there will be more once the show picks up again in January.
BTW: John Sheppard/Ronon Dex? My New OTP.
Excerpt: From Acclimation (Eight Days)
By the fifth day, Ronon's wondering if the whole thing isn't some Wraith-induced nightmare. He still can't sleep. He's pretty sure he dozed off to the drone of voices over breakfast once, but jerked back when his face hit the plate. His body feels heavy – too much cooked food, not enough exercise. His internal danger signals continue to be triggered by everyday, ordinary things, to the point that he's become accustomed to the adrenaline spikes, rides them for the minor rush they are, each one a brief reprieve from thinking.
It's the deep of the night when he's again jolted from an exhausted doze. His body urges him to find the threat, eliminate it. He opens his door, staggers into the corridor and lifts his fists as a shape turns toward him from the wall outside his quarters.
"What?" Ronon asks, belligerent.
Sheppard cocks his head, looks him over. "I've got this watch. Go to sleep."
Ronon glares at him. Sheppard takes it without flinching.
"Okay," Ronon says.
He sleeps fourteen hours.
