Summary: Austen!verse AU. John Sheppard, prominent businessman, has ventured to London to find a suitable diplomat for his company, Atlantis Trading and Shipping. OR, what happens when you take Jane Austen and SGA and mix them up. John/Elizabeth UST. COMPLETE

Why This Must Be Read: This is going on my trope bingo card under Arranged Marriage, however it's going there because it's a fun twist on the trope in that the two characters DO THE ARRANGING. And I have to apologize, because once again, this fic is nothing but UST. Seriously amazing, wonderful, well-written, smoldering, lovely UST that is not resolved. (One of these days I will rec a story that has resolved sexual tension, I promise.)

This is an SGA Regency!AU and it is wonderful. It has all the usual suspects and John and Elizabeth shine in this. They have so much respect and love for each other plus they just LIKE each other a lot. They have a wonderful friendship and the fic is just the perfect answer to a rainy day.

Also, if you want ladies being awesome and being friends - this is your fic! The friendships are an absolute delight to read and leaves you wanting so much more.
