Why This Must Be Read: The fabulously hot and inexplicably perfect combo of Cameron Mitchell and Elizabeth Weir really makes sense to me. Curiously, or maybe not, almost every fic out there with them as a pairing is at least PG-13. I guess other people think they're a hot combo too, quite literally? My absolute favorite is the heart-breaking and hopeful at the same time, 12-part Walking Elizabeth Home. In this AU, rather than dying in "First Strike," Elizabeth was rescued from the Asurans but is deemed too great a security risk to remain on Atlantis and is still recovering from her original pre-nanite injuries. Over the course of the very long journey back to Earth on the Mitchell-commanded Odyssey, Elizabeth grieves for Atlantis and everything that she has lost and tries to heal her emotional and physical wounds. I was completely bowled over by how Cam woos her subtly and devastatingly with his customary charm and humor. Do not miss the burning hot and emotionally satisfying coda, Cue the Joshua Radin Song either.
