Stargate: Atlantis

Fandom:  Stargate: Atlantis
Title: Mercy
Author: shalott ([info]astolat)
Genre: Slash, Aliens Made Them Do It
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay
Rating: NC17
Warnings: Bondage, Fisting
Spoilers: None

Notes: Written for the [info]sga_flashfic challenge "slavefic." It's not often that a fic leaves me speechless in just 1575 words, but shalott has done it here.  This fic just blows me away, everytime I read it.   The cliche Aliens Made Them Do It is actually accurate, but it's not a cliche fic.  It may use that as a premise, but it's far from cliche.  It's a powerfully moving story.

I rate this fic: This Is The Best Shit
Plus, The Dusty Seal of Approval: for blowing Dusty away in 1600 words or less.

Stargate: Atlantis

Stargate: Atlantis
Title: Intersections
Author: Kaneko  ([info]kaneko)
Genre: First Time, AU, Slash, Angst, Humor
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay
Rating: NC17
Warnings: none
Spoilers: Through Season 1, Rising

Notes: This is a great AU.  It gives wonderfully detailed backstory for both Sheppard and McKay, with richly written original characters like both Rodney's and John's mothers.  You know where McKay gets his social skills once you've met his mother.  And why John has no one he wants to communicate with back on Earth, when you meet his.  And I love the way John and McKay get together, here.  Everything makes sense.  Well written.  Funny.  It's long, but I've read it three or four times at least.  Worth the effort.


Rodney once got a black mark for doing Evan Johnson's math homework in Grade Five. )

I rate this fic: Pretty Damn Good

NCIS/Stargate SG-1 Crossover

Fandom: NCIS/Stargate SG-1 Crossover
Title: Stardust
Author: Kikkimax  (userinfokikkimax)
Genre: PreSlash, Angst, Crossover, Case File, Hurt/Comfort, Friendship
Pairing/Characters: Daniel/Tony, Gibbs, Kate, Abby, Ducky, O'Neill
Rating: R
Warnings: Talk of Torture
Spoilers: NCIS: Takes Place at the end of Season 1.
                Stargate SG-1: Takes place after Evolution, Part 2, Season Seven

Notes: Gibbs and his team are called in for an unusual murder case, and the only witness is the man the dead men had handcuffed to a chair at the time, surrounded by implements of torture.  The only problem?  An unfortunate case of amnesia: he can't remember a thing.  The team take him into protective custody as a material witness, while they try to help "John" (Doe) jog his memory.  The problem is,  the only flashes of memory he *does* have include watching a large, deadly firefight which includes a pyramid shaped "Spaceship." 

I'd never seen NCIS when I read this fic, and had absolutely no idea who they were.  By the time the fic was over (and it's a fairly long fic), I really wanted to know more about those guys.  That's when I started watching NCIS.  Yes, you have Kikkimax to blame for my current obsession with NCIS.  It's all her fault, okay?  Both casts are well drawn, perfectly believable and enjoyable characters, even if you don't get to see near as much of  SG-1 as you do NCIS.   Well, except for Daniel.  The plot is good and solid, the descriptions fascinating, and I can see why both the Stargate Fan Awards and the NCIS FanFic Awards voted this fic top Crossover. 

Excerpt: (Remember: "John Doe" is the name their amnesiac witness is going by.)

Gibbs threw out a hand to stop Tony )

I rate this fic: Damn Good Fic
