Fic Title: These Proverbs We Made in the Winter Must End
Author: Siria (siriaeve)
Genre: post-series, friendship, romance, character study, off-world adventure
Why This Must Be Read: I've always had a soft spot for this ship since season four, Quarantine, and the use of Jaws (one of my favourite movies ever) in reference to them (you'd have to watch Quarantine to fully understand), but the show went in a different direction and then the show ended. What I loved about this fic was that it was such a genuinely good fic that focuses on the characters as individuals much as it does on the ship. The whole fic takes place off-world on the planet of Posturr where as a civil war breaks out and Ronon and Jennifer get separated from the team and they have to work together to get their team back and eventually get off the planet. One of my favourite things about the fic is how realistically the portrayal of the civil torn planet is depicted and how it triggers memories for Ronon from his own past. One of the better Ronon characterisations I've read, along with Keller's and makes the Ronon/Keller believably work after the shows finale without completely AUing it. Plus there's a mention of the Pegasus's galaxy preferred (radio?) soap opera at one point, which might be one of my favourite things ever.
