Rating: NC-17 (sexual activity between consenting adolescents)

Title: And now my memories turn pale
Author: less_star
Characters: Rodney, McKays, honorary uncles, Torren
Word count: 1900, give or take
Rating: PG
Warning: OC death

Summary: You grow up and leave your family. That’s how it’s supposed to be.

A/N: I love, love, love stories where Rodney’s childhood is positively gothic, but my personal canon has shifted a bit and I now see the McKays as ordinary, rather sad people who tried their best. I also think the ancient gene is recessive, with a very random pattern of inheritance.

My profound apologies to anyone who knows anything about Euclid, or geometry. It made sense when I translated it at 4 am.

A long time ago, our family came from the sea )

Title: The Superhuman Crew
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mad_maudlin
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: AU/mashup
Spoilers: none
Pairings: McShep, others implied
Summary: Eight years later, Rodney gets an unexpected visitor with some surprising news.

Disclaimer: SGA belongs to MGM. Watchmen belongs to Alan Moore. Dr. Who belongs to the BBC. The title at some point related to Bob Dylan. I think that covers it.

Notes: This may be the first in a longer series of pseudo-brainy mashup fics I dream of writing to explore the idea of fanfic as literary criticism, or, you know, not. You can't really play with the concept of timeline in a prose work they way you can in a graphic novel, but I figured my attempt at honoring Moore's awesometasticality made this fitting for the Backstory challenge. All hail MA and [livejournal.com profile] lofro for getting me to actually read Watchmen in the first place.

[Tiptoes in, peers around] Not closed yet? I made it? Well, 8000 words isn't very flashlike, but I started writing on Friday when the deadline was extended. I've had this one in mind for a while but didn't think I could get it done in time. But I did, so that's . . . sort of flashy?

Disclaimer: The SGA characters do not belong to us. Duh.
Summary: Ronon and Rodney's Big Gay Atlantis Courtship continues with their second date.

Notes: This is a sequel to Reasonable and Customary and will only make sense if you read that one first. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza for extending the deadline of the [livejournal.com profile] sga_flashfic Background challenge for us; we really appreciate it. And yes, the title is another common insurance term; why break a streak?

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] spoke and [livejournal.com profile] lillian13 for beta and audiencing. This has not been Canadian-, Russian-, or Chinese-picked, and I apologize if I made any mistakes. Shamelessly: I would love to see more of this, anywhere, gen or shippy. This one's gen.

Title: Lessons of Loss
Author: [livejournal.com profile] miriel
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] scififreak
Rating: PG
Author's Notes: I just about strangled [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza through the web over this one - I scrambled and scrambled to get it done for the midnight deadline, and then she extended it (so I went and got a beta to look it over). Written for the [livejournal.com profile] sga_flashfic prompt Backstory, at the behest of [livejournal.com profile] cupidsbow.

Summary: For as long as she can remember, Teyla has known death. )
[identity profile] saphanibaal.livejournal.com
-title- Three (Overcrossed) Pasts John Sheppard Might Be Hiding
-author- Sophonisba ([livejournal.com profile] saphanibaal)
-rating- Mostly suitable for general audiences; some foul language.
-spoilers- I'm not sure that a character's name counts as a spoiler. Either one of them.
-characters- Sheppard; guest appearance by Holland and, more subtly, by Rodney and Teyla, as well as references to other characters.
-disclaimer- Not mine. Not, not, not mine -- except maybe the Egyptian transcriptions: since we know little beyond the fact that Amon's name had come to be pronounced "Ama'ana" by the New Kingdom, that final "t" sounds were probably dropped in the singular, and that Ra's name had added an "ah" sound to elide the sound-made-while-narrowing-the-back-of-your-throat-into-a-tube following the probable "ree," I have indulged in the ancient and honored practice of Making Vowels Up. More disclaimers at end.
-word count- 5321
-summary- Three crossovers, three pasts that might lie behind Major Sheppard's facade.

I was originally trying to write Sheppard with measles, but he wouldn't let me into his head enough for it to flow smoothly, so I set that aside and had fun with this instead. )
[identity profile] saphanibaal.livejournal.com
-title- Takes on Spots (4/5)
-author- Sophonisba ([livejournal.com profile] saphanibaal)
-rating- Suitable for general audiences.
-spoilers- I still haven't managed to see "Sateda" yet, so I don't know if any of this would be contradicted by something in that.
-characters- Ronon
-disclaimer- SGA, of course, is not mine.
-word count- 2962
-summary- In which the meaning of "inoculation" before it became used as a synonym for "vaccination" is demonstrated.

The inoculators had come through when he was five and a half, but his mother had thought that he was really too little to suffer even a mild case and put her foot down when his father wanted to send him. )
