Classic Sparky for dark_faith366...  
who is actually having the worst day of anyone I know. :( Sorry, sweetie!

Have fic spam:

Season 1. Sheppard/Weir friendship.

When he misplaces the flash drive containing his beloved football game, the first person John Sheppard goes to is Ford, then Teyla (perhaps she liked it more than she initially let on), then Sergeant Bryce. It's not that John minds the Greatest Game Ever (tm) being passed around, he'd just like to keep track of it is all. It's his one personal item, and it's high-def.

Doctor Weir is actually the last person he expected to have borrowed it.

He doesn't know it's her at first, because the lounge seems empty when he follows the familliar announcer's voice to its source, but he recognizes her laptop on the coffee table and, when he goes closer, he can see her curly hair peeking out from under the jacket she's using as a blanket.

Their indomitable leader is asleep in the lounge with a stolen football game.

She needs the sleep, of course, since John has actually never been in the control room without her being there with him, or in her office, or on the balcony contemplating their imminent doom. Besides, it's actually really sweet to see her camped out like this and relaxed.

He tries to sneak out, but she stirs at the movement, so he either has to announce his presence or be caught staring.

"I thought you didn't like football."

Elizabeth starts, looks around, and tries to smooth her hair. "Not usually."

"So you steal my flash drive and then actually fall asleep in one of the most exciting games in football history?"

She rolls her eyes. "Actually, that's why I borrowed it, and sorry. Whenever I used to get insomnia, I'd turn on ESPN."

He pouts. "I'm hurt."

"It's not a comment on football in general, Major, relax. I think it just reminds me of my childhood. My dad and my brothers were always watching games or listening to them on the car radio every weekend."

It's the first time she's ever said anything about her family. That isn't too unusual, of course. John never says anything about his, either, and in actual calendar terms, he hasn't known her for very long. The threat of mutual annihilation does tend to bring people closer together, though, so perhaps that's why he feels as though he's known her for years.

He can only say, "That sounds nice."

She smiles, a little sadder than her usual smiles. Now that they've been in Atlantis for a few months, he's seen that lonely look on a lot of faces. "It was nice." She brushes a hand through her hair again and then reaches for her laptop. "You can have your game back. Sorry about taking it without asking."

"You can't stop watching now," he argues. "You're going to miss the best part."

She smirks. "I've seen this game."

He thought about asking her to stay for the company, because he's also missing home a little bit and likes the idea of borrowing her warm family football memories. Instead, he just says, "You can't ever watch a classic too many times."

He rarely convinces her of anything in their professional lives, so he feels especially proud when she gives in.

"Okay," she says. "I'll pause it if you run to the galley for popcorn."

He eyes her. "You're not just saying that so you can sneak out of here once I'm gone?"

"More likely I'll just fall back to sleep."

He laughs. "That I can live with."

She's still awake when he gets back, but she doesn't make it to the end of the game, and John doesn't wake her for the big finale. She's seen it before, after all, and she needs the sleep.

And if something is warming in his chest, just a little, at the thought that his headstrong boss trusts him enough to fall asleep in his company...

... if anyone asks, he's just here for the football.

I should start charging a cute tax for people in my journal. "YOU! Five words of cute, now!"

... or something.
Havochavocthecat on October 11th, 2007 11:37 am (UTC)
You know, a cute tax would probably help. A lot! So long as we can maybe string each five words of cute together into a drabble, anyway.

Gad, I love how you write.

And I love your Sparky.
Little Red: sga - sw happiness - jeepnymylittleredgirl on October 11th, 2007 06:04 am (UTC)
It's possible I should just give up on everything except silly fluffy fic. :) Because I dashed this off in a comment window at work... and I think I've had three longer Atlantis fics of Angst And Depth struggling five words at a time on my hard drive all year.

*smooches you*

(If you love my Sparky... um... feel like reading a mostly done fanfic and giving me some advice? Because I'm doing a 5 Things fic, and I can only think of 4 things. And not much thought went into it, so it's basically silliness.)

Please send it to me! (I'm going to be mostly offline this weekend starting tomorrow, but I'll jump on it as soon as I get back.)

Aww, cute! Your writing reminds me of a time when 'Lantis was all good. :)

I've decided that I actually still live in season 1. And that allows me to Really Really Enjoy the TV show, the way you would enjoy an AU novel-length fic series by one of your fave authors, where it's so good it might be real, but hahaha, it's not, because we still live in season one where there is no aaaaangst!

Thank you. Very Very much. I really needed this and there are very few things I like more than your fics, you know.

This fic is love. I miss the good ol' Shep/Weir so much... thank you!

I just sat here for a full minute reading your icon. OMG LOL. I feel like I am all caught up with BSG now!!

Honeygirl, you deserve millions and millions of the fluffiest happiest fanfics imaaaaaginable.

Awwwwww! You write them better than anyone else. *hearts*

Besides, it's actually really sweet to see her camped out like this and relaxed.

Awww! I'm picturing that, and it really is very sweet. And then there's the end, with her falling asleep again and him being all *warmfuzzies*. Hee! So cute.
Little Red: sga - sw want - magnavox_23mylittleredgirl on October 11th, 2007 06:13 am (UTC)
Awwwww. You just made my month. :) For reals. *cuddles your praise*

I think this type of fanfic is actually my niche. I could really never write anything except Sparky fic that involves sleeping. I think I have like fifty pages of unfinished sleeping-related fics on my hard drive from when I was, um, never getting out of bed (write what you know!) until I posted one and someone was all "dude, you posted this last week!" and I was all "nuh-UH! I just wrote this this minute!" and we got in this big argument and I realized that all my fics were EXACTLY THE SAME.

... the doglette has kept me up for many days. I think Gira just named her "Rocket Dog" on top of everything. Need to be sleeping nowwwww... zzzz....

Aww. I'm almost tearing. It's memories of what fanon used to be! *sniffle*

I adore Season 1 Sheppard/Weir friendship (with a hint of something more) and I adore your fic. Wonderful!
Little Red: sga - sw do sex - unrehearsed_mylittleredgirl on October 11th, 2007 06:19 am (UTC)
I totally still live in season 1 fanon. I think I'm kind of all alone here, because people got all Serious and started Watching Battlestar Galactica And Appreciating Mad Crazy Angst, and I am still like "omg, wouldn't it be totally keen if, like, they built a ping-pong table?"

I also kind of miss the very early days when we just assumed everyone would be having casual, relatively angst-free sex with each other, and feelings would just kind of Sneak Up on them, and then it would be slightly less casual and more clingy, but they would still be all dorky about it. Good times.

Maybe I'll start writing more fanon time warp fics. *happy sigh of denialy goodness*
peanutbutterer: Yes.peanutbutterer on October 11th, 2007 01:27 pm (UTC)
And John was like a little puppy in a new house and Elizabeth was all watching him and thinking, "Puppy!" but she was too busy trying to run an expedition to play with him (until he got really crafty and figured out ways to drag her away, which became his goal in life without him realizing). And there was no Earth and no one cared because they were too busy forming alliances and having those parties that go with new alliances and then dealing with the consequences of omg I slept with him and now I think I want to again!

Or, um, something like that.

Season 1 forever plz thnks.

"omg, wouldn't it be totally keen if, like, they built a ping-pong table?"

I still want a conversation where Elizabeth tells John and Rodney they're running out of duck tape.

Cause, seriously, how do you cope without any kind of tape?

*loves* One of my biggest fic kinks is people falling asleep together. Particularly people who probably strictly speaking shouldn't be falling asleep together *g*

Yes! Another fan of Sparky/Sleep OTP (OT3?) of Teh Cute! ;) It's not all that I write, but it's so addictive that you slip it in without noticing, and then wonder exactly where it came from, and whether you should delete it, and then don't. Because it's Sparky/Sleep, God's gift to insomniac shippers and galactic expedition leaders everywhere!

Maybe the reason it's so alluring is because it never gets shown on the show. The closest we get is Teyla having nightmares, and patients in the Infirmary. Which would also explain all the smut/sex fics out there too... xD

Lovely. ^^
Little Red: sga - lizzie gleee! - thefakeheadlinemylittleredgirl on October 11th, 2007 10:07 pm (UTC)
OMGGGGGGG. Sparky/Sleep is my absolutely FAVORITE OT3 evarrrr!!

You write it too? Take me to your fanfic! Immejitly!

Because it's Sparky/Sleep, God's gift to insomniac shippers and galactic expedition leaders everywhere!

You have just made me squeee like a nutjob at work. I'm totally starting a sparky/sleep ot3 tag right away.

xD It's my only OT3, but I love it with all my shipper heart! <3


And a tag! Love for the tag!
