Sheppard/Weir fic recs

Fandom Category: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: John Sheppard/Elizabeth Weir
Fic Title: Tacit
Author: tenacious_err
Link: http://tenacious-err.livejournal.com/255307.html#cutid1
Rating/Warning(s): R, for non graphic sexual content
Genre: romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read:

tenacious_err reinvents this pairing – that's how I feel about her writing most of the time, because she manages to tell us stories about them in a new and fresh way. She writes amazing conversations filled with humor and banter, her characterizations are always spot on, not to mention she is a really prolific author. On top of everything, she makes it look so easy. This story is written entirely from John's point of view, and the author does him justice, by portraying him as a man with many insecurities, but she never forgets that he is smart and loyal individual. This is one of those 'how they got together' stories, with fluff and sweet moments and just enough of angst to tug at your heartstrings. I had really hard time picking my favorite story written by her to rec. If you enjoy John/Elizabeth stories, read everything she had written – you won't be sorry.

Fic Title: Music appreciation
Author: hihoplastic
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/sail_your_sea/16267.html#cutid1
Rating/Warning(s): PG – 13 / no warnings
Genre: romance, fluff
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read:

If you love this pairing, then reading everything hihoplastic has written about this pairing is a must. While most of her stories contain angst that will rip your heart out (and you will love every second of it), this one is pure, fluffy, unadulterated happiness. hihoplastic has amazing way with words and incredible talent for storytelling, and her love for this pairing shines through every line she has written. In this story John and Elizabeth discuss popular culture while in bed, and they're being cute and adorable, and Elizabeth is just a little bit mean to him. If you need a dose of happiness, go and read this.

Author: ugahill

Rating/Warning(s): PG – 13, no specific warnings
Genre: UST, romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read:

ugahill writes wonderful adventures. Most of her stories adhere to canon, and in this one she comes up with a delightful, fun plot where John and Elizabeth have to rethink and redefine their relationship, while dealing with a typically science fiction predicament. This story is funny, well executed plot idea; there is team and banter and wonderfully drawn out tension between Elizabeth and John. Most importantly this is a fun read that will leave you feeling happy.

Rating/Warning(s): PG – 13, warnings for bad language (profanities)
Genre: crack

This is utter, complete crack. It's funny, it's ingenious, it has hilarious over – the – top scenarios in which John gets to be the hero extreme. If you enjoy crack you will have great time reading this story.

Author: bigdamnxenafan

Rating/Warning(s): graphic sexual content
Genre: smut, romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read:

Because it's sweet, it's hot, it's funny and adorable. I love fics in which Elizabeth and John get to spend some quiet time together at the end of the day, and this one has established relationship, and Johnfeeling a little neglected while Elizabeth is being a linguist geek. The smut is wonderful, the perfect mix of tender and steaming hot.

Fic Title: Hapaestus
Author: speckleberry
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/speckle_dots/18463.html#cutid1
Rating/Warning(s): PG, no warnings.
Genre: angst, romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read:

Choosing between speckleberry's stories was incredibly hard! Over the last few years she had written wonderful ones, and she is great in every genre she does. Her stories are heartfelt, poetic, cheeky, cute, sometimes incredibly sad, but you're never sad about reading them, because she writes with amazing honesty and love for the characters. This story fixes the mess left after “Ghost in the Machine”, bringing the real Elizabeth back where she belongs to, and healing emotional wounds along the way. At the end, we are left with hope.

Fic Title: Thou Shalt Not Steal
Author: chiarahhue
Link: http://chiarahhue.livejournal.com/5999.html#cutid1
Rating/Warning(s): PG -13, some bad language
Genre: humor and UST
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read:

If you want a feel good fic, written in true spirit of Atlantis seasons 1 – 3, go read this one. It has humor, UST, wonderfully written team moments and off world trouble. A simple off-world trade negotiation goes bad when a neighboring clan think they can steal the treaty by kidnapping Elizabeth, but little do they know about the trouble awaiting them. The author does especially wonderful job with secondary characters, who truly come to life in all of her stories. My favorite thing about this story is the way she chose to tell it, with perfect, lighthearted humor, as opposite how these stories are usually done.

Fic Title: 52 weeks
Author: cassievalentine

Rating/Warning(s): PG – 13, no warnings
Genre: romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read:

Many post – Return stories have been written, focusing mostly on how the characters deal with the loss of the entire life and their homes – and while this fic doesn't ignore that aspect, it shows us what happens after the expedition returns to the city. My favorite thing about it is how the author keeps the story so close to the actual canon, up to Adrift/Lifeline, and then fixes it all and gives us a happy ending we always wanted.

Fic Title: With Twilight as my Guide
Author: antiqueskies

Rating/Warning(s): PG – 13, implied character death
Genre: angst
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read:

This is an incredible way to fix everything that happened to Elizabeth and John through seasons 4 and 5. The author starts with The Real World and sends us into an alternate reality, playing with all those scenarios that made us sad, but also playing with John's head. Written in a truly masterful way, this fic is creepy at times, and when you're done reading you'll let out that breath you've been holding.

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: UST
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read:

This is a perfectly in character written, absolutely delightful AU version of “First Strike”. I have a love – hate relationship with that episode, and this fic fixes everything I dislike abou, t the episode. Elizabeth survives and keeps being just as awesome as she is in the episode itsel, while the team is right by her side. Telling you more about it would be spoiling, so just click on the link and enjoy the story!
