Title: So Hard to Say
Word Count: ~1500
Summary: This may be the hardest thing John Sheppard has ever done.
A/N: I kinda feel like I’ve written that summary before? But maybe I’ve just read it. Many awesome times. Hope this lives up to it!
( John woke up early the first morning, his toes cold, despite the blanket wrapped around them. )
TITLE: Finding Solace in Blue Jello
AUTHORS: squidgiepdx and elderwitty
FANDOMS: Stargate Atlantis
PAIRINGS: Sheppard/McKay, mention of past McKay/Keller
CHARACTERS: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay
WARNINGS: None really
NOTES: Set after S5E20 Enemy at the Gate. Atlantis is on Earth, waiting to go back to Pegasus. Special thanks to squidgiepdx 's husbear for being the final decision-maker on the title, since we couldn't decide on our own.
( John and Ronon step out of a transporter )
Prompt: "Limn" for Week #11
Word Count: 1949
Summary: Sunset and light, and a smidgeon of romance. Unashamedly goopy and probably OOC. Sigh.
Note: I used 'limn' in all its definitions, I think : to paint, to draw with words, to illuminate. The title comes from Francis Bacon, the philosopher (1561 - 1626).
With love and thanks to syble4 for looking this over for me
( “Who then to frail mortality shall trust but limns on water, or but writes in dust” Francis Bacon )
Characters: Teyla Emmagan, Carson Beckett
Notes: *sigh* I'm not sure how adequately this fits in with the prompt, and it has no beta, but Teyla was hitting me in the brain with her sticks about this prompt. She had something to say. I hope I did her justice.
Summary: In a short while, the city lights broke the horizon, shooting straight up into the sky.
( Home is not a house with windows and walls, not a place to be shattered; there are no doors, and no matter where I come to rest, your arms will be my safety net. )
Pairing: OT4, John/Rodney, Teyla/Ronon
Categories: crack, au fusion, pwp, series
Warnings: blasphemy of the highest order; the ancient device
makes them do it but they walked right into it eyes open.
Summary: Teyla seeks the cure of the reliquary.
A/N: There really is no excuse for this. I got 3/4
of the way through an honest, hard-working Limn prompt story,
and then punked out and wrote this instead. It's all squidgiepdx's
fault, I swear. This is just plain cracky porn with a side
of blasphemy and has no place in the chambers of
honor here. Bless me, Father, for I have sinned big.
[Part IV of the Pope John series.]
( IN THE LIGHT OF THE MOST HOLY FATHER )

I'm not going to mess this one up with suggestions. So many possibilities here. Have at it, folks!
