Title: Semper Fi with a Zat: Chasing Wraith and Killing Time with the Marines of Atlantis
Rating: G
Character: Ensemble, OCs
Disclaimer: Not mine (except the mistakes, although some of those may have been gleaned from Wiki-P, because I don't know nothing about firearms), no harm meant.
Summary: To mark the 10th anniversary of the declassification of the Stargate program, we bring you extracts from Ed Lawrence's 2014 New York Times bestseller Semper Fi with a Zat: Chasing Wraith and Killing Time with the Marines of Atlantis, originally posted on HuffPo in 2012-3 as 'Despatches from Pegasus', when Lawrence was embedded with the Atlantis expedition. We republish here Lawrence's introduction to the recent anniversary edition.
A/N: ...I wrote the bulk of this in 2009. It was intended as the introduction to a Big Bang story that I'm still trying to write, and which has ended up going in a slightly different direction. The Ed Lawrence who wrote this is not the same Ed Lawrence who I've sent to Atlantis in Despatches from Pegasus, and I'm still working out how much of that is due to what happens, or if it's not quite the same story...
I'm posting this now, because damned if I'm gonna let the tenth anniversary of the show that brought me into fandom pass without posting something.

Good Lord, has it really been ten years? Although I didn't start watching SGA until it was into its fourth year, so for me it hasn't...

Title: Red Water
Rating: PG-13 for language
Characters: Danny Williams, Steve McGarrett, John Sheppard, Ronon Dex
Disclaimer: Not mine (except the mistakes), no harm meant. 
Summary: Tracking a suspect to the surfer's paradise of Waimea Bay sets Five-0's path on a collision course with a face from Steve's path.
A/N: Partly inspired by the line from The Last Man: "Surfing a thirty foot wave in Waimea is cool. Dating a supermodel is cool. This is not cool!" (Waimea means 'Red Water') (Wiki-P tells me so). Also, rather more directly inspired by [livejournal.com profile] pentapus' idle speculation on the nature of a H50/SGA crossover, and the observation that Steve McGarrett "knows [John Sheppard] professionally and really doesn't like him." So naturally I thought: *angst* - actually, I should probably put in a disclaimer here, too - [livejournal.com profile] pentapus is in no way responsible for the following, and I'm so very sorry...
A/N2: Have I mentioned how I'm completely obsessed with Hawaii Five-0 right now? I am. It's so pretty, and slashy, and has the most inappropriately jaunty theme tune...

Title: Newcomers: Captaincy
Rating: PG-13, shading to R, language only, because even girl Marines swear...
Characters: Cadman, OC
Disclaimer: Not mine (except the mistakes, and the newcomers themselves), no harm meant.
Summary: Anna-Maria has been holding herself up by a thread since Ushant and Ordan - and the person who's there to see her fall is not a friend.
A/N: Follows on from the 'Five Callings' sequence. I, ah, may have wound Anna-M a little too tight...
A/N2: For reasons too obscure to go into here, I have Cadman as co-leader of a gate team that's transferred back to Atlantis after several years at Cheyenne Mountain. (Just think of it as - Landry wanted all the people who like blowing shit up that much to be on one team, to save on C-4)

Captaincy ) 

scherryzade: (lorne being awesome)
Title: Out of Mind, pt1
Rating: PG
Characters: Lorne/Cadman, various SGA & SG-1 characters (with other possible pairings)
Disclaimer: Not mine (except the mistakes), no harm meant.
Summary: Laura usually works alone. And at every turn of this job, she's remembering why.
A/N: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] major_explosion AU challenge, for [livejournal.com profile] amathela's prompt: Heist AU. "Be specific but not memorable, be funny but don't make him laugh. He's got to like you then forget you the moment you've left his side." I couldn't resist - I love, love, love that scene in Ocean's 11. It always reminds me of the kind of advice people give you for job interviews.
A/N2: The whole thing's grown into this epic AU 'verse, the details of which I cannot reveal for fear of spoilers, and which has large chunks relating to neither Evan nor Laura, so this is this is the start of their story, but not necessarily the whole story.
A/N3: Notice how I'm trying to make that sound intentional? November was - complicated. Fic helps, but only if I actually have time to write it :/
A/N4: Any similarity between Laura and Leverage's Parker is entirely coincidental. Oh, wait, no it isn't.

Out of Mind )

A/NUmpteen: It's quite possible that this 'verse (but not this story, don't worry - yet) includes a not-as-wheelchair-bound-as-he-lets-on Cam Mitchell who spends his nights fighting crime. Someone stop me, please.

Because I've signed myself up for the [livejournal.com profile] atlantisbigbang, and that 40,000 word minimum has rather put my follow up to 'Five Callings' on hold. (The follow up is veering between being 'Five favours John Sheppard (or the senior staff) did for AR-27 that they really don't appreciate' and 'Conversations with the Little Major', neither of which is very pithy ;)

Cut, deleted scene from the Newcomers story, Five Callings: Teyla, Janel & Mark on Ordan
Cut because it slowed the story down, and would have resolved too much of the tension too soon, but I like to think that this happened anyway, if not right then. Also, this scene is the reason Janel's carrying the scissors that play such an important role in Five Callings.

Cut )

My Big Bang story? Features declassification, hapless journalists and other gratuitous OCs, Genii double-crosses, daring rescues on Wraith hive ships, sex pollen and the infamous SGC Kissing Protocol. And that's all before I've worked out the final act.

Also, it has a title! See me with my competent story-planning all of a sudden.

Title: Strange New World (That has such people in't)
Rating: PG
Characters: Sheppard pov, ensemble (implied Jim/John, Jim/everyone...)
Disclaimer: Not mine (except the mistakes, and the crack), no harm meant.
Summary: An altogether different set of newcomers to Atlantis.
A/N: I make no apologies for this (Never give up! Never surrender!)
Warnings: Crack. Technobabble (I finally worked out what to do with Scotty :). But mostly crack.

Strange New World (That has such people in't) )

In other news - go Steven Moffat! I'm convinced :)

Title: Like Father, Like Son 
Rating: G
Character: Caldwell
Disclaimer: Not mine (except the mistakes), no harm meant.
Summary: What difference is there between the strange enemies he faces now, and the monsters that his father was obsessed with?
A/N: Inspired by Mitch Pileggi's turn as Samuel Campbell (the father of Mary Winchester) on Supernatural. What if Mary wasn't the only member of that family looking for a normal life?
Warnings: Oh look, exciting adventures in confused tenses! Open endings! Also - SGA meets Supernatural. I'm posting this now, because it's April 1st, and I can always pretend I didn't mean it. Also, crappy unoriginal title...

Like Father, Like Son )
scherryzade: (pacific ocean)
Title: Newcomers: Leader
Rating: PG-13 for language
Character: OCs, Teyla, Sheppard
Disclaimer: The context isn't mine (AR-27 are), no harm meant.
Summary: Bad decisions. Close calls. Unknown enemies. Uncertain friends. Welcome to Pegasus.
A/N: Sequel to Medic, Soldier, Traitor, Coward - the final part of 5. Spectacularly delayed, because I was taking it in completely the wrong direction...

Leader )
scherryzade: (pacific ocean)
Title: Newcomers: Coward
Rating: PG-13 (For infrequent language and frequent angst - you know I'm just making wild guesses with this, right?)
Character: OCs, Team
Disclaimer: The context isn't mine (AR-27 are), no harm meant.
Summary: Bad decisions. Close calls. Unknown enemies. Uncertain friends. Welcome to Pegasus.
A/N: So, um, *cof*, following on from last week - what do you mean, it was three weeks ago? - Sequel to Medic, Soldier, Traitor, part 4 of 5.

Coward )
scherryzade: (pacific ocean)
Title: Newcomers: Traitor
Rating: PG
Character: OCs, Teyla, Sheppard
Disclaimer: The context isn't mine (AR-27 are), no harm meant.
Summary: Bad decisions. Close calls. Unknown enemies. Uncertain friends. Welcome to Pegasus.
A/N: Sequel to Medic & Soldier, part 3 of 5. Because, hey, there aren't enough OCs in this story...

Traitor )
scherryzade: (pacific ocean)
Title: Newcomers: Soldier
Rating: PG
Character: OCs, Lorne, Parrish (Lorne/Parrish, also)
Disclaimer: The context isn't mine (AR-27 are), no harm meant.
Summary: Bad decisions. Close calls. Unknown enemies. Uncertain friends. Welcome to Pegasus.
A/N: Sequel to Medic, part 2 of 5. This took longer than I intended :/

Soldier )
scherryzade: (pacific ocean)
Title: Newcomers: Medic
Rating: PG-13 (some incidental Lorne!whump, moderate language)
Characters: OCs, Lorne, Parrish
Disclaimer: The context isn't mine (the main character is), no harm meant.
Warnings: Made up words and grammar. There's also some fairly blatant Lorne/Parrish subtext, which will probably end up as text ;)
Summary: Bad decisions. Close calls. Unknown enemies. Uncertain friends. Welcome to Pegasus.
A/N: Pretend I wrote the bit after The Stray about Janel adjusting to life on Atlantis, re-learning her skills as a medic and proving her worth to the expedition and herself, while never quite feeling comfortable*... This is what happens next:

Medic )
scherryzade: (lorne being awesome)
Title: Five ways Lorne became the military commander of Atlantis
Rating: PG-13
Character: Lorne
Warnings: Implied McShep, major character death (I'm sorry! It wasn't me! It didn't happen! I didn't mean it!)
Disclaimer: Not mine (except the mistakes), no harm meant.
Summary: See title...
A/N: For the [livejournal.com profile] sg1_five_things prompt of the same title (Prompt 85.05)

Five ways Lorne became the military commander of Atlantis )
scherryzade: (lorne being awesome)
Title: Zippy
Rating: G
Characters: Sheppard, Lorne
Disclaimer: Not mine (except the mistakes), no harm meant.
Summary: The burdens of command, the pressures of promotion...
A/N: V. short future fic - it's sort of related to an idea that I'm working on that may or may not turn out to be a newcomers story, and to which this is, at the moment, largely incidental. So now you know :)

Zippy )


Is it just me/my browser, or is the lj text box really flaky at the moment?

Title: Newcomers: The Stray
Rating: G
Character: Woolsey, Keller, OC
Disclaimer: Not mine (except the mistakes), no harm meant.
Summary: They're so busy persuading Richard to let her stay, they seem to have forgotten what she wants.
A/N: More of the newcomers series. Sequel to Janel Ettesdotter Medicat - Woolsey's pov of Janel. Also, exposition, because I convinced myself it was in character for Richard...

The Stray )
scherryzade: (pacific ocean)
Title: Newcomers: Janel Ettesdotter Medicat
Rating: PG
Character: OC, Teyla, Woolsey
Disclaimer: The context isn't mine (the main character is), no harm meant.
Summary: All Janel wants to do is get out of the city.
A/N: Sequel to The City is an Island - another newcomer, one who is less keen to stay.

scherryzade: (pacific ocean)
I started with a few basic assumptions about my newcomers, which gradually turned out not to be true. Really, I should have waited until I'd worked out '5 things that turn out not to be true about AR-27', but these two are standalones, so I figured I'd just make it an occasional series ;)

Usual disclaimers, no particular warnings.

Title: SOA
Characters: Sheppard, OC (oh, and Chuck :)
Summary: John's gotten used to AR-27 not dialling in on time.

SOA )



Title
: Feisty
Characters: OCs, Zelenka
Summary: Rodney isn't good with names.

Feisty )

Title: Newcomers: Afternoon Tea
Rating: PG (language - "Shut up, Mark.")
Character: OCs (AR-27)
Disclaimer: The context isn't mine (AR-27 are), no harm meant.
Summary: This isn't really where Nate thought he'd be ten years after completing his PhD
A/N: After Dawn and Midday - Dusk, except the timescale means that it's earlier, hence Afternoon Tea :)

Afternoon Tea )

scherryzade: (pacific ocean)
Title: Newcomers: Midday
Rating: G
Character: OCs (AR-27, natch :)
Disclaimer: The context isn't mine (the characters are), no harm meant.
