Why This Must Be Read: Kid Fic tends to be fluffy. I love that about it but...put kid fic and angst together and you can create gold! This series wraps kid fic and angst together so wonderfully. The first installment in the series is wonderfully sweet and angsty, the second installment will break your goddamn heart in two and the third puts it back together in the sweetest way. I love these fics so much, I just reread them with the posting of the third and they were just as amazing the second time around.

“Let’s make a baby,” John said, nipping at Rodney’s earlobe while he jacked him slow, slow, slow.
Rodney rocked his hips, trying to get John to speed things up. “What?”

“Let’s make a baby.”

“You might…mmm…want to look at what you have in your…ooh, yeah…hand. We’re not properly equipped.”

“I’m serious.” John’s hand stopped moving, though he didn’t let go of Rodney’s cock.

Rodney sighed and rolled his eyes. “Do we have to talk about this now? It was just getting good.”

John rolled on top of Rodney, pressing their cocks together. Now that was more like it!

“Yes, I want to talk about it now. I want to have a family with you.”

It wasn’t like Rodney had never thought about what it would be like, him and John raising a couple of kids together. Neither of them had had a really solid childhood, and the thought of getting another go at it, of being better parents than their own parents were, was definitely appealing.

“So, what? Like adopting?”

John rocked his hips, and Rodney’s breath caught. “I was thinking surrogate. A little boy with your blue eyes and your brains.”

Rodney flushed, inexplicably embarrassed. It was sweet that John thought he had some good attributes to pass along to the next generation, but if they were talking about making a DNA contribution, it had to be John. He had a good body type, he was smarter than he liked people to know, and he was quite frankly beautiful.

“Tell you what,” Rodney said. “You stop teasing my orgasm, and we can have a serious, not-naked conversation about this. Okay?”

John grinned wickedly. “Oh, you’ll get your orgasm.”

And he did, twenty minutes later, John riding him and making the sexiest, most wanton noises that ever came out of a human mouth. Rodney had his orgasm, John had his discussion, and four months later they found the perfect surrogate mother to help them become a family.

Warnings: The initial story by Julad is a bit angsty for McSheppers

Why This Must Be Read: My suggestion is to start with the story that inspired this one, which is Rodney/Radek, with pining!John (Beneath the Roses by Julad). Then Astolat took that idea and galloped off in a threesome direction. Great writing, excellent characterisation, some nice snark, and hot as hell - they're both great reading.

"Thanks to you, Rodney is now convinced he is irresistible gift of God to all humanity," Zelenka said, with profound disgust. "He is busy refining lottery scheduling algorithm for fair allocation of shares of his free time."

"You've got to be kidding me," John said, and then added hastily, "Okay, never mind," when Zelenka glared.

"Now he and his ego will have exclusive relationship," Zelenka said. "Nobody wins! Unless you have significantly more tolerance than I do, in which case congratulations, he is all yours."

"Um," John said, thinking about exactly how smug Rodney could already get. "Can I go with stupid?"

Zelenka folded his arms. "Yes, I thought so."

"Look, I didn't mean to do this," John said.

"You are a miserable liar," Zelenka said.

John shut his mouth, because Zelenka was right, and he hadn't even realized it until now, hadn't known that he'd been waiting for an excuse, for a chance.

Zelenka kept glaring, until he apparently got satisfied that John was well and truly aware of their respective positions as far as the moral high ground, and then he sighed and pulled out the desk chair to sit down. "I was not really expecting competition."

"I wasn't expecting to be competition, so," John said, morosely. His self-awareness was working overtime to catch up, too, because he was also realizing he hadn't been expecting to lose, so his own ego needed some deflating. "I'm sorry. I didn't want to -- okay. I did want him. I do," he said, giving the honesty though it stripped him bare; he owed Zelenka that much. "But I didn't want to screw things up for you. Either of you."

"Intelligence is the ability to hold contradictory beliefs, so you are doing well," Zelenka said.

Every time I see the promo for this show, all I can think is "that's almost the exact scene from 2010 where the Aschen are lauding 3/4 of sg1....."

Why This Must Be Read: John and the Athosians are space pirates. I don’t know that I even need to write more than that to explain why this must be read, but I will. All your favorite characters from both Atlantis and SG-1 are here plus bonus Zoe from Firefly who fits in seamlessly. There’s action. There’s drama. There’s Genii. John Sheppard is an emotionally repressed badass. Teyla and the Athosians practice vengeance with responsibility. And, due to a completely believable canon divergence, they are space pirates.

"Why is it called a Jolly Roger?" asked Ronon, slumped in the co-pilot's seat and obviously bored.

John was too busy navigating the asteroid field to give the question serious consideration. Besides, he didn't remember and it wasn't like he could look it up. "It just is."

Why This Must Be Read: This is sweet and hot and hilarious. Various encounters with mind-altering fruit or other Pegasus substances lead to a series of hook-ups, until the eventual, inevitable threesome. The writing's excellent, and I like the naturalness of the progression to them all being in a relationship. Radek's dry humor is excellent, and the way he and Rodney tag-team John is a hoot. Highly entertaining.

"Please relax," Radek urges him, his hand still on John's chest. John rests his own hand on top of it, looking up at him for a moment before turning to Rodney.

"I like his hair," he explains. "It's all crazy, like, I dunno, like he doesn't really give a shit. Like he gets up in the morning, and he's like," and John puffs himself up slightly, but he doesn't put on the ridiculous accent everyone else does when trying to imitate him, "'Fuck my hair, I got science to do.'"

"Maybe he's sobering up," Rodney deadpans, above John's head.

"But it's really fuckin' cute.
He's really fuckin' cute," he continues. "Pocket! That's what I meant. I wanna put him in my pocket. Don't tell him I said that."

"Dialing the gate," Ford says, and Radek is a little glad that John can't see it activate- otherwise, they'd have to sit here for twenty minutes so he could look at the pretty colors.

The med team Rodney's called for is waiting in the jumper bay, and John lets himself be maneuvered on to a stretcher without complaint.

"Carson!" John says emphatically. "Carson," he repeats, dropping his voice into a very serious whisper. "Carson, I am
really high."

"I know, Major," Carson replies, examining his pupils. "Let's get you to the infirmary."

"Can I bring Dr. Zelenka?' John asks, sounding like he's asking about his teddy bear.

When Carson looks over at him, Radek throws up his hands and shrugs. "Of course, lad," Carson assures him. "He's right here, see?"

"Yay," John says, reaching for Radek's hand again. "He's so cute," he whispers to Carson.

To Rodney's credit, he waits until Carson decides John's in no danger before he goes out into the hallway and dies laughing.

Link: On Life and Living

Why This Must Be Read: I have a thing for kid fics, I make no bones about it. I generally prefer Rodney as the parent but this is one of two exceptions that prove that rule.

John is a widower, looking after his (very well written and likeable) daughter Kayla. During a trip to the science museum, they meet Dr Rodney McKay and...he basically never leaves their life after that. It's a very sweet set of fics, completely AU, set on Earth, no stargates whatsoever. Both John and Rodney are kept amazingly in character throughout which is always a challenge in AUs. Kayla is a great kid character and avoids the trap of being too perfect. One of my favourite things about this fic is that it shows both John and Rodney as fallible parents and feels very real.

They have lunch at the restaurant, which is more like a cafeteria than anything else. Rodney pays for everything even when John tells him he doesn't have to. The next stop is the gift shop, where Kayla would happily spend an hour at least. She looks at books, videos, stuffed animals, bath toys, magnets, sticker sets, and postcards until Rodney finally sighs and gives her a twenty dollar bill. "I don't care what you buy as long as I don't have to stand here and observe the process," he says, and goes outside in a huff.

John frowns. There are two employees in the gift shop, both middle aged women, and only a few other people shopping, but he can't leave Kayla in there on her own even though it's probably completely safe.

"Is Rodney mad?" she asks, coming over and taking John's hand. "I don't have to buy anything."

"No, it's okay," he says. "Go on and choose something, okay? Just try not to take too long."

"Okay." In a minute or two, Kayla settles on a pair of stuffed white Bengal tigers and pays for them, taking the change solemnly. They go outside, where Rodney is throwing little feed pellets for some ducks that have waddled over from the nearby pond display. "This one's for you," Kayla says, offering Rodney one of the little tigers.

Rodney swallows and slowly takes it. "Thanks," he says. The ducks quack and wander around in confusion, wondering where the food is, but Rodney isn't paying any attention to them. "Sorry," he mutters. "I guess I'm not very good at this."

"Hey, it's nice to know there's something you're not good at," John says.

Why This Must Be Read: This charming little ficlet is both metaphorically and literally sweet: a peaceful moment of friendship between Teal'c and Daniel, at the beginning.

And of course this one pushes all my happy buttons, because JDJunkie wrote it at my request. :)

This world. Earth's. His world, and now Teal'c's.
