4 Weir/Sheppard recs



Fandom Category: Stargate: Atlantis
Pairing: Elizabeth Weir/John Sheppard
Fic Title: International Relations
Author: melyanna
Link: http://melyanna.livejournal.com/172666.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: AU, pre-series
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: An outstanding pre-series AU in four parts, where a single mechanical problem strands diplomat Elizabeth Weir on an Air Force base... and allows her to meet a pilot by the name of John Sheppard.

I have to say, this is probably one of my favorite AUs, one I still occasionally read from time to time. Every time I read it, I find myself wishing that the show really had happened this way. melyanna really put some thought into it, developing the characters from their younger incarnations into the people they were when we first met them, though with notable differences stemming from the change in circumstances provided by each other.

In other words, Elizabeth Weir and John Sheppard fit together extremely well even when they no nothing of Stargates and legendary cities. A great story.


He strolled up to her nonchalantly and tapped the toe of her boot with his own. “Hello,” he said.

She looked up at his face, and then her eyes drifted down to the insignia on his jumpsuit. Then she said one of the seven (all of them dirty) words he knew in Czech and added, “I’m not interested, Captain.”

He raised a brow. Her voice was rougher than he’d imagined, but now that he looked at her more closely, he saw that her face looked to be tear-streaked. Still, in a way, it added to her allure somehow. She had a long, graceful neck, and her sharp facial features were softened by dark curly hair. “That’s not a very good way to make a friend,” he replied. He sat down next to her and extended his hand. “Captain John Sheppard.”

She took his hand warily. “Doctor Elizabeth Weir.”

Fic Title: A Taste For Scandal
Author: azarsuerte
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/swficathon/20499.html
Rating/Warning(s): G-PG
Genre: AU, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: One of the real gem-like stories to come out of the swficathon, A Taste for Scandal is absolutely amazing! Told in a series of letters and set in the early 1800s, azarsuerte tells a Pride & Prejudice-like story featuring many from the SGA cast. The spin really does bear a resemblance to the tales of Jane Austen, but with a unique and very special twist courtesy of the author.


You may also find it of interest that it is not Mr. McKay, nor his sister, however, who is the talk of the Ton this Season, but rather a friend of his--a Colonel John Sheppard. You would scarcely believe the wild tales that are flying about regarding this gentleman! Apparently he is English, but has recently returned from a long tour of duty in the Americas, hence his friendship with the Canadian. The gentleman is rumored to have ten thousand a year and a country estate with the ostentatious and highly inappropriate name of Atlantis.

Fic Title: Unexpected Vacation
Author: miera_c
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/lostcityfound/186589.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Fluff, romance, humor
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: An absolutely hysterical story where Elizabeth and John are turned into a cat and dog, respectively. The story is told primarily from the point of views of the other expedition members, but it's still a relatively adorable tale featuring the couple. You'll laugh, you'll probably choke on the sugar, but it's well worth it. A highly cute story.


Lorne remained calm when he was summoned to the Control Room and found Ronon holding onto a shaggy looking dog and Teyla with her arms full of a cat and McKay bellowing for Zelenka and generally flailing around like he usually did when something very not good had just happened.




Fandom Category: Stargate: Atlantis
Pairing: Elizabeth Weir/John Sheppard
Fic Title: 'Til Human Voices Wake Us
Author: medie
Link: http://medie.livejournal.com/1489066.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: AU
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Another great story to come out of the swficathon, medie creates an excellent alternate reality where John and Elizabeth are Alterans instead of humans. Taking the two of them from one world to another is done perfectly, and the effects are shown with a light, unassuming hand. The characters of Elizabeth and John, known as Elisia and Ioannis, are still very recognizable, and their contact with the humans of Earth after a ten-thousand-year nap are quite interesting and even amusing.


Walking Atlantis's cold and darkened halls, Elisia could not suppress the urge to shiver. Her gaze went to the window and the depth of water which lay beyond. She had always believed herself to be a woman devoid of superstition, but looking at that vastness, Elisia was no longer certain. "I feel like a ghost," she confessed, rubbing her arms.
