Drilled (by Bironic) (M)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: humor (cracked out anthropomorfic)
Characters: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Categories: slash
Warnings: Nil
Author on LJ: bironic
Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: Drilled on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: Yesterday's one was a short fic, so here's another. As Bironic says, this is the one where Rodney's a drill and John's a stud (no, not that kind of stud - that's Rodney in this fic - stud meaning an upright timber post in the wall of a building, since the overall category being anthropomorphised is construction materials). This story earns its M rating - it's really steamy, and not just because Rodney's bits are overheating. The boys are wonderfully in character and cracky though it is, this is hot stuff, written for the 'dirty talk' square of kink bingo.

Stationery Orbit (by Busaikko) (G)

Rec Category: Humor (cracked out anthropomorfic)
Characters: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Categories: slash
Warnings: Nil
Author on LJ: busaikko
Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: Stationery Orbit on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: They're stationery items! John's a pencil, Rodney's an eraser, and they have the very important task of making sure The Child gets educated. Of course, along the way there's attraction, a worrying separation, and romance. Also, perfect characterization - no surprise, since the story's by Busaikko. It's a short fic, so I won't do a snippet. Great fun!

Before&After by yo_helena (PG)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: John Sheppard
Characters: Radek Zelenka, Rodney McKay, John Sheppard
Pairings: John/Rodney
Categories: AU
Warnings: Politics, second person POV
Author on LJ: yo_helena
Link: Before&After

Why This Must Be Read: A poignant AU, branching off from Conversion, where John retains some of his blue features and faces certain consequences that come with that. This is told from Zelenka's POV and focuses somewhat on Rodney but I'm reccing it in the John Sheppard category because, at it's core, this story is about how much John means to the people of Atlantis.

First paragraph to get you startedCollapse )

But Where Would They Live series (by thingswithwings) (T)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: humor (cracked out anthropomorfic)
Characters: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Categories: slash
Warnings: Nil
Author on LJ: thingswithwings
Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: But Where Would They Live series on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: Now, okay, some of you may be saying hang on, hang on, this isn't really anthropomorfic. Because usually that's two non-human things in a specific category. So far we've had two ipods and two cookies. In these two stories, Rodney's a unicorn and John's a rainbow. So where's the category? Well, I reckon the category being anthropomorphized here is symbols of fluffy sparkliness - with the rainbow tilting it a bit toward symbols of fluffy sparkly gayness. I can't do much better than the author's own summary for the first story: "John is a rainbow, Rodney is a unicorn, and the Humans are attacking. Will they work together to save the Magical Forest (Answer: yes.)" So this is crack and fluff, and the second story's curtainfic as well, and the great thing is that thingswithwings manages to keep Rodney and John entirely in character, with plenty of snark and humor - it's a whole lot of fun.

The Epic Tale of Rodney & John, Two Girl Scout Cookies in Love by bitter_crimson (R)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: Humor (cracked out anthropomorfic all this month)
Characters: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Categories: slash
Warnings: Cookie porn, crumbs, strong language, extreme crackiness. Very image-heavy.
Word Count: ~1250 (in text and 80 pictures)
Author on LJ: bitter_crimson
Author's website: see LJ
Link: The Epic Tale of Rodney & John, Two Girl Scout Cookies in Love on LJ - and now also on AO3!
Why This Must Be Read: This is one of the major, classic anthrpomorfics of SGA, a fandom which has a remarkable number of the genre (SGA's way wackier than SG1 in that respect). This isn't long in wordcount, but it is in overall content, with loads of images of... cookies. As with all the best anthropomorfic, it's a classic tale of cookie meets cookie, cookie loses cookie, cookie... but no more spoilers, go read the epic saga!

Welcome John Sheppod (by Toft) (G? PG at most)

Categories: slash
Warnings: Nil
Author on LJ: toft_froggy
Author's Website: Toft's SGA fic on DW
Link: Welcome John Sheppod on LJ
Why This Must Be Read: A commentfic, but it's a classic in the genre. Sparked off when Toft got a new black iPod (John Sheppod) and Shaenie said hers was orange (Rodney McPod). Read the start of the top post, then scroll down to "Theirs was no ordinary romance." It may be a short fic, but it aces the essential aspects of anthropomorfic - great characterization despite the bizarre objects our heroes are inhabiting, clever use of said objects in the service of romance and/or smut, and general hilarity.

Why This Must Be Read:
A short but intriguing insight into Ronon's mind during "Tao of Rodney". The last line puts the story perfectly in line with the bear hug he's giving Rodney at the end of the ep. Strong character piece.

Why This Must Be Read:
Sateda was a fairly advanced civilisation and Ronon was a member of its military though it's rare that he's portrayed in a way that reflects these facts - "The Natural" does exactly this. It's a wonderfully refreshing take on Ronon and a great piece of John - Ronon friendship.

The Atlantis Project series (by Seperis) (E)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: John Sheppard (roadtrips)
Characters: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard, various SGA characters
Categories: slash
Warnings: Mexico City should in my view have a warning for "major character death" as that's strongly implied at the end. Also, Ronon and Teyla are bad guys in this, just so's you know. It's an older fic where asterisks are used to denote italics.
Author on LJ: seperis
Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: The Atlantis Project on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: This is a non-Stargate AU, and it has lot of roadtrippy parts, but isn't wholly about the roadtrips of course. There are four stories, with Arizona setting up the premise and main plot - that McKay's a scientist whose life's at risk because of a potentially world-changing invention which Powerful Forces want to suppress, and John's the operative sent to extract him, protect him, and get him to safety out of the USA (but who is he really working for?). Cue an escape-type roadtrip down through the southern USA and into Mexico. It's full of good stuff - mistrust, paranoia, attempted assassination, last minute escapes, a love affair between John and Rodney, and extremely hot sex. The second story Borderlands, is basically a sex-scene out-take. Then there's more traveling and plot (and sex) in the third story Puerto Vallarta, and the fourth story Mexico City wraps up the plot. I found the ending satisfying because I can bear MCs dying in a good cause, but that's just me. You could always read the first three and skip the last one. As with much of Seperis's work, the stories pack a somewhat dark and edgy punch, and they're very well-written and engaging.

Why This Must Be Read: This fic, this fic. I mean, heed the "choose not to warn" "here be dragons" warning, as this isn't for everyone, but it's haunted me ever since I first read it. If you possibly can, read it right through from start to finish, no peeking at the end or the comments. The ending is amazing, well, the whole fic is, once you realize. It always makes me cry, and I love it.

Notion (by ladyflowdi) (E)

Characters: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Categories: slash
Warnings: Grief, loss of Atlantis
Author on LJ: ladyflowdi
Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: Notion on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: Ladyflowdi says in the story's introduction that this story was written in 2006, so after "The Return" when John and Rodney think they've lost Atlantis forever. the author says: "there are certain stories all writers create that push them to become better at their craft. This one was one of them for me." It's a road trip from Cheyenne to John's old storage unit at San Antonio, in which John and Rodney grieve, and take comfort in each other. We can console ourselves with the eventual outcome, but they don't know what's going to happen. It's set before canon gave us John's wealthy business-owning backstory so treat it like an AU in that respect. Well written, and recommended.

Why This Must Be Read: This glorious, intense story is long. And incredibly teamy. Full of Jack and Daniel friendship, and scientific puzzles, and Teal'c sheer stubbornness, and Sam doing her best (and beyond) for her team, and Daniel taking his usual flying leaps of logic, and courage, and drama...

I love each and every one of them here. Bill Lee shines, Janet has a great cameo, and the comfort of the final scene is an absolute joy. Make sure you've got the time to read this all in one sitting, because you won't be able to stop!

Why This Must Be Read: Great Rodney voice, very believable progression from team-mates with not much in common, to two people having sex just because, to something more. The character beats are great and I love that Ronon is treated as more than a grunting soldier with some great ideas like him and Rodney working on a prototype weapon together. Also, it's very hot.

Sunday's Child by ankhmutes (R)

Characters: Ronon Dex, Rodney McKay
Pairings: Rodney McKay/Ronon Dex
Categories: Slash
Warnings: None
Author on LJ: ankhmutes

Why This Must Be Read: I know I'm new to reccing here but there's one thing you should probably know about my tastes in fic. I like it when my favourites hurt. Sunday's Child takes place post-Sunday and the grief for Carson is so well written and so well realised. Throw in a dash of understanding!Ronon and some pretty darn hot smut and why aren't you already reading it?

Honestly, again, this fic has a great Ronon voice. It really captures a lot of my own headcanons for Ronon, like how he notices things that others don't, how he just wants to feel useful again, how he's so protective of the people he loves.

(Plus there's a tiny bit of Rodney whump, which is my happy place)

Three Hundred and Sixty Four by sardonicsmiley (R)

Show: SGA
Rec Category: Ronon/Rodney
Characters: Ronon Dex, Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, Teyla Emmagan, Evan Lorne,
Pairings: Rodney McKay/Ronon Dex, Teyla Emmagan/Evan Lorne
Categories: Slash, Forced Marriage
Warnings: Slash, Language, Whump
Author on LJ: N.A
Author's Website: no more tears
Link: Three Hundred and Sixty Four

Why This Must Be Read: This is the fic that got me shipping Ronon/Rodney. As a predominantly McShep shipper, I'm a huge fan of sardonicsmiley's stories so I trusted them enough to read outside my preferred pairing and what I got was almost 26,000 words of perfection.

In an effort to keep Ronon (and Teyla) on Atlantis after IOA shenanigans, they are both married off (Teyla very happy to Lorne and McKay taking one for the team and marrying Ronon). What follows is a pitch perfect slow burn of Rodney and Ronon falling in love with a bit of whump thrown in the mix.

What's even more impressive is the spot on Ronon POV. Ronon Dex was a fantastic but criminally underutilised character on the show and when he's written well, can elevate a fic from decent to must-read. And this is a very well done Ronon.

Author's Website: See trin's old site on Wayback (not all the links work though), and her LJ, and there are a few on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: Roadtrips this month! John Sheppard is along for all of these rides, because you know he loves anything that goes fast. This one's lovely, riffing off the old fandom tendency to compare Sheppard and McKay to Bing Crosby and Bob Hope. In this story he and Rodney are in a cherry-red Ford Mustang, so you know John arranged the car. Rodney rediscovers a favourite food, there's snark and camaraderie, a little pining, and some romance.

Discontinuity by Jb (Sg1Jb) (estimated R)

Show: SG-1

Rec Category: Jack O'Neill

Pairings: None
Categories: Gen, horror, angst, team
Warnings: Dark fic, character death
Author on LJ: sg1jb
Author's Website: Page On AO3
Link: Discontinuity



Author's Summary: Jack's not sure who's who. A short, dark piece that some might consider disturbing.


Why This Must Be Read:

This short fic (3300 words) is not for the faint of heart. It seems like classic mission-gone-wrong but it quickly goes off into a horror realm when Jack confronts Teal'c. You aren't quite sure what Jack is concerned about, but when Jack attacks Teal'c without overt remorse, you suspect something is not right.

It's not until Jack fights Daniel that you know something is horribly wrong.

The ending is suitably chilling.
