Why This Must Be Read: Another gorgeously written story by anuna_81 A lovely little AU where Atlantis and the Stargate program don't exist. Elizabeth decides to have a child on her own and when her daughter is struck down by a serious medical condition, she and her friends track down the 'donor', one John Sheppard. I love this story not only because I totally identify with Lily's medical condition, but because, again, it is beautifully written. The characters remain true to themselves even though it is an AU and the plot line is very true. Not much else to say about it other than go, GO NOW!
“Ah, green eyes,” grinned Jonas shaking his head. “I’ll never understand the criteria she used.”
“Are you sure he was a pilot?” asked Daniel nervously. None of their candidates had green eyes, and the Jonas opened the last file. “Pilot sounds cool, test pilot sounds…”
“Oh, I think this is the one, guys,” said Jonas, scratching the back of his head. Both Sam and Daniel leaned forward and several papers found the floor as Sam brushed the pile of paper with her elbow in excitement.
“Black hair, green eyes, six feet tall. Occupation: test pilot. Oh even IQ score is there. 164, my God!”
“That guy might be smarter than you,” teased Daniel. “That explains the math,” said Daniel. Sam nodded in agreement. It felt strange to hunt for the genes like this.
“Let’s find his address… what’s his name, Jonas?”
“Here…,” Jonas scribbled several words on a piece of paper that was smeared with something that could have been coffee. “Let’s hope this John Sheppard is an altruistic person with a high tolerance for lunatics.”
