    Here's another one of my snapshots. I don't like how this one turned out, especially the ending *shrugs* It's from Sunday:

    Spoiler:

    This is insane. The words echoed in his head. She’d thrown them out there in the heat of the moment, but they were as true now as they were at the time. A human bomb? ****ing Ancients. Ever since they’d arrived, they’d been cleaning up one mess after another. As far as he was concerned, the Ancients weren’t capable of running a pissup in a brewery, let alone be responsible for creating life in a new galaxy.

    They’d taken it upon themselves to formally identify Carson’s body. He’d tried to stop her, but she felt responsible. Thankfully, the force of the explosion had blown Carson onto the floor, so he was still ‘him’ in a front-on view. Sort of.

    She turned away pretty quickly at the sight of him, but she didn’t cry like he’d expected. Instead she buried her head in his chest, inhaling quickly and deeply. It’s him, Carson Beckett, John said to the doc, before gently putting his arm around her.

    Rodney was a mess. Elizabeth was always so good with him that John was almost jealous of their relationship at times. He didn’t want to go back to Earth, but she told that he’d never forgive himself if he didn’t, he’d never forgive himself for not saying goodbye to his best friend. He had to do it, for himself, for Carson, and for her. And John, well, she told him that she had to stay behind to keep an eye on the city, given that so many of the senior staff were leaving for the funeral. He understood, but when he saw her standing next to Carson’s coffin, in front of the gate, he wondered if it was really the best decision for her, or just the best decision for Atlantis.

    Some of them took the opportunity to stay on Earth a while longer, but John took the first chance he got to head back to the city via the gate-bridge. Ostensibly it was because he had duties to attend to, but the truth of it was that he wanted to check up on Elizabeth. When he did finally see her, it was his turn to have his breath taken away. She looked gaunt, as if she hadn’t eaten since they’d left. He wouldn’t have been at all surprised if this was the case, not that she’d ever tell him.

    He knew she and Carson were close, although he’d never really considered the added dynamic to their relationship. When John’s team was away, Carson would’ve been her only true remaining friend and equal. Not that Elizabeth wasn’t capable of making new friends, but there weren’t too many people she was ‘close’ with. And while it grated him more than he wanted to admit, he heard that Mike had almost bulldozed her into their....date. Scuttlebug was that she’d pushed him away because she didn’t want to get involved with someone under her authority. John almost laughed when he’d heard that – she was more like him than she realised.

    They ignored the elephant for a while, but eventually John plucked up the courage to ask how she was really doing. He didn’t really believe her when she said she was coping, but she needed to talk about it, and so did he. They could be each other’s rock this time.

      Hmm. If I cross my arms like this, it'll make my guns look bigger

      Hmm. If I cross my arms like this, it'll make my boobs look bigger

      (sneaks a peak) Hmm. Her boobs look bigger when she crosses her arms like that. Uh oh, the little major noticed too. Dammit!


      That's all I got for now, I'm sure the voices in my head will whisper some more inspiration at a later date

I'm a little concerned about this tournament, the All Blacks (that's the name of the team, not a racial slur) don't do well under pressure.
        We have rugby here in some of the schools. My neighbor is on a team, and all I know about it is they have a bumper sticker on their car that reads "Give Blood, Play Rugby." LOL

        I see. We have determined exactly five eights of FA about what a Commodore actually does. But I think it's safe to assume that SR can be shipped with John if she's Starfleet and he's Air Force
        I hadn't thought about that. Problem solved.

        And I love your little fic, very much in character for them. Plus, glad to see the smutty clever pic spams are back.

            Sparky is on screen. Therefore, it is canon. Elizabeth is still out there. And John WILL bring her home.

                    It's the major mens sport here (although going strictly by numbers, there are more soccer players up until the tween years), which will mean a national state of mourning if we lose this time. I wish I was joking, but the coach would most likely get death threats. Pffft, TPTW thought they had problems with fanatical fans, they ain't seen nothing

                    I hadn't thought about that. Problem solved.
                    I'm sure John will be licking his lips in anticipation

                    Thank you, but I'm still not happy with that one. I liked how it started, but didn't really have a plan for how it was going to end (much like the real Sunday, how ironic) so it just kinda finished. I have a Lifeline/Adrift one that suffers from the same problem, although that one actually isn't finished yet either

                    continuing the story...

                        I was looking through the thread for something else, and discovered this, and thought I'd add my 2c

                        I was capping some episodes for the whump sig challenge, and I saw something I'd never noticed before. This scene from Tao of Rodney:



                        Look at the space between Carson, Teyla, and Ronon. Then look at John and Elizabeth.

                        Personal space? What's that?

                        Oh yeah - question about the heroic moments poll. When we say maximum 3 Sparky, does that mean only 3 of John or Elizabeth? Or only 3 where they're heroic at the same time?
                        Aww *squishes them all*

                        I don't get that criticism at all, especially when they made a point early on of saying she was governed by emotion. Not to mention there's the handwringing criticism too.

                        I didn't notice the hand holding thing, that's a nice touch, especially since it must've only been in-shot for a second or two.

                        Anuna!! *glomps* (I'm mathgirl24 everywhere else, in case you've forgotten )
                        So nice to see you!!

                        Tao is my favorite episode, which would seem strange considering Rodney isn't my favorite character (that would be Elizabeth), or even my second favorite (that would be John). Rodney is a distant third. Like everyone else has said, it was an Atlantis family episode. All 6 of the main characters had important parts to play, as well as Zelenka, Lorne, and Chuck. If Kate and Caldwell had been there then the whole family would have been present. (It would have made more sense for Teyla and Kate to teach Rodney to meditate, but I LOVE the scene with John trying to. "Lizabeth made me." "Oh, yeah, me too.")
                        I hadn't considered the meditation thing, but that's a good point, considering how little screentime Teyla had in this ep

                        There are so many scenes that I adore. There's John trying to convince Elizabeth to use the device on himself which highlights their chemistry and great comedy skills. There's John leaning over Elizabeth's shoulder to look at her computer when John doesn't even read Ancient (oh John, you're so obvious). There's John and Elizabeth having a companionable lunch together. Ronon was beyond awesome in this one ("Can I shoot him now?"). The tea scene with Teyla, the apology to Zelenka, the 2 hugs with Ronon... Oh and the book that Rodney wrote about Elizabeth with the infamous chapter 10 describing their "indefinable and yet magical chemistry". Oh, how I would love to read that (and to have John read it).
                        I'm also quite fond of the Rodney/Elizabeth scene where she tells him to give ascension a go

                                Well, I've read criticism from some folks who said she was a pushover and went along with whatever John wanted, and then those same folks said she emasculated him. Perhaps they didn't understand how those two ideas are mutually exclusive? Basically they just fit whatever label they could to each individual episode because they wanted to be haters.

                                Yes, some really great Rodney/Elizabeth friendship scenes in that one. She understands Rodney.
