      Good morning, Sparkies! Happy Fluffy Thursday!

I have a college project that I haven't touched in over a month (which is totally fine because I have an extension but still need to work on it soon), but if I misappropriate anymore of my "free time" and work on fanfic, I'll never finish my laundry. And I need clean clothes.
      D'oh!

(Guess I should have signed up sooner, haha). I guess maybe I just didn't know where to look, but I could never find much of a Sparky presence on Tumblr? That always made me sad.

      I've written Sparky fic under my old handle (Rushingwind) and posted it all here, on AO3, if anyone's interested. Also, my personal favorite fic is a role reversal fic I wrote where Elizabeth is the military badass and John is the diplomatic badass leader (here). I actually wrote a sequel to it, but never posted it... though I've been revisiting and editing the fic lately, so maybe I'll post it soon after all.

      I really look forward to getting to know you all. You all seem like awesome people!
      Awesome, I'll definitely have to check that out! *runs to bookmark the link*

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

        Also, if this rain is the "normal summer" here in Belgium as someone is trying desperately to explain the bad weather, then I'd like to object.

          Continuing with the weather report, the heat index here is 105F. That's 40.6C for you non-Americans.

            On second thought... rain is fine.

              hopesetfree, thanks so much for sharing your stories! I read Frail, Fleeting, and Powerful today, and I want to say that you are an incredibly talented and creative writer, and I enjoyed this story immensely. You should definitely continue writing and complete that sequel, I would love to read it. I would give you some green for this fantastic piece of writing, but I can't, so virtual green!

              So glad that you've joined this thread! It's never too late to join in on Sparky!

                I second that. I read "All the Echoes Mourn" and loved it. I think I have read "Frail, Fleeting, and Powerful" at some time in the past also. Great writing.

                  It's supposed to be 73F and sunny today in my neck of the woods. Good for working on a house. (We poured the footers for the foundation this week, slab goes in next week! )

                    Sounds like you're getting to the exciting part.

                      LOL, the really exciting part will be moving in! But this is a close second.

                        I just had to share this. If I need to take it down, let me know. But it made me laugh.

                        Spoiler:
                        I was looking on Reddit for something about a ship from SG-1 in one of the Legacy books and someone made a comment about another ship from SGA...
                        Spoiler:

                        And I just died laughing at the cyanide line.

                            Contains Sparky angst and Elizabeth/Teyla friendship. Hope you all enjoy.
                            Really nice. Well done.

                            (Darn, I can't figure out how to make the image its original size.)

                            Just wondering, were any sigs of this design made for Elizabeth? Since she's back now, I mean.
                            No, actually, I didn't make one. But you're right, she should have one.

                            Just so I don't show up empty-handed, this is a fanart-ish thing I made a while ago. Maybe some of you have seen it before (or maybe not), but it was one of my recent-ish tributes to Sparky. I hope it brings a smile to someone's face.
                            Hi! Welcome to the Sparky thread. Ahh, I remember seeing that art on tumblr and loving it (ohh, the prettiness and angst! (also, it reminded me of a fic I wrote with multiple realities)). I'm glad I get to tell you so!

                            Spoiler:
                            “Marry me.”

                            Elizabeth looked up at the man who had just stepped over her office threshold and uttered the two words she never thought she would hear - at least, not in this galaxy. "What?" she asked, more bemused than shocked.

                            John Sheppard grinned at her. "Apparently, the people of M38-527 only trade with married folks." As he took a seat in front of her, he continued, "So I gotta get hitched in order for McKay to try and talk them into trading for some awesome device they have that does something ... awesome."

                            Elizabeth set her Palm device on her desk, leaned back in her seat, and raised an eyebrow. "Why can't McKay be the married one?"

                            John glared coolly back at her. "Don't make me laugh."

                            She cocked her head to the side in a nod. "What about Ronon and Teyla?"

                            "They've traded with the Athosians before. They know Teyla."

                            "Ah. So you're the only choice left then."

                            "Well, I am the most eligible bachelor in Atlantis."

                            Elizabeth held up her hand. "Let's get something straight, Colonel. First off, that was an informal poll done while half of the senior staff was inebriated. Secondly, no matter how many times a single person voted for you - again, while inebriated - each person's vote should have been only counted once."

                            "That reminds me, I forgot to tell you how impressed I was with your tolerance. After five drinks, that is."

                            Elizabeth cleared her throat. "Alright, John, let's make a deal. I agree to be your wife for the purpose of trade negotiations, we never mention that night again. Deal?"

                            "Deal."

                            She leaned back. "Good."

                            "I'm just saying, you voted, like, ten times."

                            Elizabeth tapped her desk. "You're dismissed, Colonel."
                            LOL! So cute. It was fluffy and adorable and then John's last line just brought it all home. Ha!

                            I just read Before and After. Nicely done! And I think I've read the role-reversal one before and liked it, but I'll have to look at it again to see.

                            Edit: I read FF&P again and yes, I had read it before. Really excellent story, beautifully written. (And that OUaT line has always made me go swoony, so hearing it with Sparky is just perfect. *happy sigh*)

                              And now she does. Oversight corrected.

                              The second one's bg is a bit brighter and I kind of like that one better, but the first fits in more with the rest of the series, which has a more muted background.
