    Just how emotionally distant?

      Spoiler:
      John Sheppard didn't know what was causing this day to go so ridiculously right, but he wasn't gonna complain.

      He had woken up before his alarm clock even chirped, and he was actually ready to face the day. A stream of endless sunlight came through the windows of his quarters. He took a shower, grabbed coffee from a curiously empty dining room, and was in the conference room going over performance reviews before his shift actually started at 0800.

      He had even smiled pleasantly during McKay's horrifically long briefing and made a little attention, causing the scientist to frown in anxious worry.

      Yes. Something was strange today.

      His team had no missions scheduled, so they all had made other plans for the day. Teyla and Kanaan had taken Torren to visit their Athosian friends, Ronan had not even been seen since the night before (though come to think of it, neither had Banks), and McKay had exited the room in a debate with Zelenka the second the briefing with Sheppard, Lorne, and Woolsey was over, absconding to his lab to work on -- something.

      So John walked slowly to his office, enjoying the tranquility of the morning. He couldn't even let his mind start to predict what could go wrong; it would sour his mood, and those type of predictions on Atlantis were usually, completely wrong anyways.

      But when the doors to his office slid open and he glanced at his desk, his smile quirked to one side.

      How could I forget that?

      The old fashioned desktop calendar laid in the middle, a thickly drawn red circle around today's date. The color caused him to momentarily flash back to his freshman English class. The teacher -- Mr. Burke -- had a special fondness for symbolism. Everything they read in that class was a symbol for something. He had always said that putting the colors of red and orange and yellow together made you think of blood, violence.

      But for John, ironically enough, red reminded him of a person who preferred peace over war, who strived to ease tensions instead of escalating them.

      He unlocked a drawer and slid it open. Photographed memories from their first few years on Atlantis, copies of promotion papers (first from major to lieutenant colonel, then graduating to full bird) and emails sending surprised but humbled congratulations, handwritten notes that never made it to their intended recipient -- they were carefully layered in the drawer and he delicately picked them up as he retrieved the dark red pen hidden beneath all of it.

      He smirked at the memory of Graham Burke. Sorry, but I think you're wrong.

      Uncapping the pen, he carefully drew the outline of a check mark in the outlined box. As he colored it in, he allowed himself to smile in immense relief.

      Elizabeth was coming home.


      Not sure where this is going, but we'll see shortly!
      Wonderful work, ShipperWriter! I'm looking forward to see where this is going!

      That is such a beautiful video. Next to graphic art, which I plan to do sometime soon, I hope that I can one day make my own John/Elizabeth music video. Thanks for sharing it, Pearl!

        Anyway, I've gotta go memorize an entire act for my play rehearsal!! And I CAN'T because I'm all mushy from watching poor Carson in Poisoning The Well (season 1)!!
        And Elizabeth!! And John!! And the EYEBROW!! And the SMIRK!!
        And sugar high!! (and too many exclamation points?)

        Daniel: You know referring to yourself in the third person is a sign of mental instability right?
        McKay: Yeah, mentally unstable like a FOX!


        O'neill: Carter, I should be irked currently, yes?!

        Elizabeth: I'm not going anywhere
        John: good, wouldn't be the same without you


        Carson: You have a date Rodney? With a woman?

          Viva la long post. I MAY have gotten a bit off topic, and forgive me if there are any major spoilers of anyone hasn't seen some eps. I'm still learning how to do those spoiler tags.
          Oh, and about John seeming more distant in the last two seasons...first off, I agree. But I think Everyone changed during that time. Sometimes I jokingly refer to the first three seasons of the show as Atlantis' Elizabethan Era (for obvious reasons). And I think seasons 2-3 were gold (though I can't watch 'Sunday' without Kleenex) because, if you look at the whole Rodney/Jennifer pairing...I think it worked pretty well overall, but I could NEVER see season 2 McKay being in that relationship. I think Liz is what sort of balanced all of them out.
          Not that the later seasons didn't have some awesome episodes (i.e. 'the shrine')!!
          Anyway, I often wonder where the show would've gone if they hadn't gotten a "new leader". I think Lizzie could've gotten at least ten seasons out of them....Also, the reason why Teyla got pregnant was because Rachel got pregnant, and then so much was built around that arc, that I wonder where we'd be if Rachel hadn't gotten pregnant then.
          So there's my random little two cents...
          Oh! And have you noticed how many tear jerkers there are?!?! Sunday, The Last Man, The Shrine...I noticed I actually need Kleenex for a lot of scenes, because I was rewatching this one scene where Rodney and Clone-Carson are having a conversation:
          Carson: Rodney, get Doctor Weir in here, right now!
          Rodney: ...I can't do that.
          Carson: Why not?!
          Rodney: (long pause) She's dead, Carson
          GAH! Just...I couldn't even...I was just...just...just TAKE my heart, why don't you?!
          Daniel: You know referring to yourself in the third person is a sign of mental instability right?
          McKay: Yeah, mentally unstable like a FOX!


          O'neill: Carter, I should be irked currently, yes?!

          Elizabeth: I'm not going anywhere
          John: good, wouldn't be the same without you

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

                              I'm feeling creative, but nothing is coming out. So to help jump-start it as well as some shameless self-reccing, I am spamming posting all the Sparky icons I have access to at the moment from PB.








                              ... Well, not all of them. But close.
