Oh, lj, why are you mocking me with your green spring theme account menu? *glares at snow*

Anyway, posting this because I said I would nick it from [livejournal.com profile] gelbes_gilatier  - an opportunity for you to find out more about the, uh, gaping plot holes in some of my stories:
  1. Give me a character and a story and I'll tell you three things about them that didn't make the story (or)
  2. Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future (or)
  3. Ask me a question about one of my fic . It can be absolutely anything in any fic and I will tell you the honest-to-god answer. Don’t hold back. Ask about major upcoming plot points if you want to. Whatever you ask, I have to answer truthfully.
(Just noticed it's now April, and barely above freezing. The daffs at the bottom of the road look a little shell-shocked ;)

*or possibly, i' faith. Yeah, no, I don't know what that's about either. It's late.

He knows that Captain Rodriguez is wearing a bulletproof vest. He can see that the mercenary's weapon is a handgun, not the high-velocity rifle they took off the mercs on M9D-294. He can tell by the way she falls that it's pure momentum that pushes her off her feet.

He knows that whether he reacts quickly, or takes his time with the shot, he's more likely to hit Janel than the mercenary. He's sure that Sheppard is close by.

He knows that if he starts firing, they're all dead.

He knows all this, but that doesn't make it easy.

He doesn't take the shot.

It's not the slur to the women that makes him lose his temper. It's just an insult. Maybe if it hadn't been to their faces - he's set a few of the US Marines straight about the captain before now. He doesn't need to defend these women's honour. Except - he sees the way Teyla flinches...

Like every enlisted man on Atlantis, Mark has an opinion on the veracity of every story told about John Sheppard. Killing 60 Genii with the flick of a switch - documented truth. A girl on every planet - rumour and speculation, no proof, but look at the man...

The speculation is half the fun. But sometimes Mark wishes he knew what's truth and what's merely the feverish imagination of the USMC gossip mill.

Watching Sheppard saunter up to Yanek, expression cold, with Dex grinning blackly at his shoulder and McKay trailing behind, sour-faced and oddly subdued, Mark decides he's better off not knowing.

Delighted by all of them. Love how you make him so complex with just a few words and give an insight into the Newcomers' Atlantis and its inner workings. I knew I asked for the right guy ;)

Thanks :)

I realised that although I meant to lead each of the five sections with one particular newcomer, I swapped out Mark for the mercenary in 'Traitor', so he didn't really get a focussed section, even though he's there the whole way through...

I suppose I could pretend that this is significant ;)
