Stargate: Atlantis

Fandom:  Stargate: Atlantis
Titles: Over The Edge & Under The Skin
Author: Danvers  [info]sdraevn
Genre: Slash, Humor, Hurt/Comfort, Angst
Pairing: John/Rodney
Rating: PG & NC17
Warnings: Mention of torture
Spoilers:  Nothing specific, but Ronon is on the team, so it's got to be Season Two 

Notes: I really like Danvers' work - she was one of the reasons I started reading SGA fic in the first place.  (I'd read her SG-1 fic, and when she started writing SGA, I was tempted to read it.)   She wrote Under The Skin first, and I liked it a lot.  Well written, as usual, and I always enjoy the way she writes her characters - very insightful.  Then, she wrote a prequel (Over The Edge), so now we know a little more about how they got to where they are in Under The Skin.  I really love Over The Edge.  There's not a bit of Smut in it (yes, I know it's hard to believe that I read something without Smut, but hey, every once in a while, I can manage.)  But it's just so funny.  It really makes me laugh, out loud.  Not too many fic can do that.

Stargate: Atlantis

Stargate: Atlantis
Series: Alpha Centauri 
Author: Hth   [info]hth_the_first
Genre: Slash, Angst, First Time, Hurt/Comfort
Pairings: John/Rodney, Rodney/Ronon, John/Ronon, John/Rodney/Ronon
Rating: NC17
Warnings: None.
Spoilers: Through Season 2, Episode ? (It's an ongoing series, so just assume it's what ever is current.)

Notes: Okay, it's another ongoing Series.  But it's a really good one. If I had an OT3 in SGA...well hell, maybe I do have an OT3 in SGA, because I really never expected to like Rodney/Ronon as much as I do, but I really do.  Especially in Hth's series.  I like the way she portrays all three characters.  And that's the thing.  There's lots of really hot sex in this series, but that's not all of it.  She gets into the characters, and exposes them; their fears and insecurities, their confusion and frustration over misunderstandings and cultural differences, their needs and lust and passions.  It's all there, and you feel very strongly for all the characters involved.

ETA: Hth just added these to her website, so that's what I linked to. If she gets behind on updating her site, I'll try to remember to come back and put links to her journal for the newest parts.

ETA2 - I think this excerpt earns the title of the single longest excerpt in this journal. But it just had so many good (and funny) things in it, that I couldn't decide where to edit it. So you get the whole section, and a really good glimpse into why you should be reading this series. So, enjoy.

Stargate: Atlantis

Fandom:  Stargate: Atlantis
Title: No, Really and the sequel Yes, Maybe
Author: [info]basingstoke
Genre: Slash, Het, PWP, Humor
Pairing/Characters: John/Teyla/Rodney/Ronon
Rating: NC17
Warnings:  Some Het
Spoilers: Slight spoilers Early Season 2 - Perhaps through Condemned?

I like a good group sex fic, from time to time, but most of the time, they don't really seem to work.  This one definitely works for me.  Everyone continues in character, and it's fun and funny and hot all at the same time.  Now this is what you call Team Building!

Excerpt from No, Really:

Rodney, calm down. )

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. )
