Elizabeth
  • ed_84

Underneath, by Elnea (pg-13)

*For the person that requested Rodney/Elizabeth, I have two recs, but unfortunately they are not "recent." :( Hope you still like 'em, though! Here's one...

Fandom Category: Stargate: Atlantis
Pairing: Elizabeth Weir/Rodney McKay
Fic Title: Underneath
Author: Elnea
Link: http://www.wraithbait.com/viewstory.php?sid=2105
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Action/Adventure, humor, hurt/comfort
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Summary: John blames himself for the presumed death of McKay and Weir. Meanwhile, Rodney struggles to save Elizabeth in a forgotten harbor deep in the substructure of Atlantis. S1 fic, about discovering Atlantis.

Whether you take this as overt ship, subtle ship, or just plain friendshippy, it's your interpretation. ;) I was pleasantly surprised to stumble across this fic while roaming Wraithbait.com, which turned out to be a superb story with action, mystery, and a great M/W story with a touchingly protective Rodney. Very well written, good pacing, and it played out like an episode. Good interactions between Rodney/Elizabeth, Elizabeth/John and Rodney/John. I loved how the author jumped back and forth between scenes with Sheppard worried back in Atlantis and the Rodney/Elizabeth scenes. Her interactions were spot on.

"Morning Light," G by whitemunin


Fandom Category: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Ronon Dex/Jennifer Keller
Fic Title: "Morning Light"
Author: whitemunin 
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4411702/1/Morning_Light
Rating/Warning(s): G
Genre: Romance/General
WIP?: N

Why This Must Be Read: Because it's fun and quiet and has the characters interacting over something "everyday," in this case, breakfast. I often find beauty in the mundane things, and this fic is the perfect example of that. Jennifer displays an unexpected amount of insight into Ronon's character, and it's a pleasant, touching surprise to both him and the reader.

Making a House a Home by Wedjatqi (T)

Fandom Category: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Teyla/John with a tiny glimpse of Sam/Jack
Fic Title:
Making a House a Home
Author: Wedjatqi
Link:
www.fanfiction.net/s/3789845/1/ or at the author's website at wedjatqi.livejournal.com/28033.html#cutid1
Rating/Warning(s): Completely PG. Contains spoilers for events revealed in Season 4 of SGA and up to "Dominion" in season 10 of SG-1 but diverges off into an AU from "The Return, Part I" in season 3 of SGA. The regular characters that appeared before that episode exist as if the events that occurred onscreen after that never happened.
Genre: Angst/Romance
WIP?: Complete

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of my favorite stories by one of my favorite authors. Pretty much everything Wedjatqi writes is incredible and should be checked out but the writing in this story is particularly transcendent. I am moved and blown away by the author every time I read this. If you are having a terrible day, week, year, I highly recommend this story to help restore you to equilibrium. Yes, I swear it has healing properties.
