Fic Idea for the Taking...again  
I've been reading Sheppard Amnesia fic and I got a cool idea for a story that doesn't seem to have been done before.

Sheppard wakes up in his room on Atlantis with no memory of who he is or where he is. He goes out of his room and discovers that he's the only person on Atlantis. Everything but the gate works. He can't find any evidence of something going wrong - for him to be alone or why the gate isn't working. Exploring the city, he finds that the computer laptops work and starts going through them, learning about the city and the people there. Eventually he discovers Rodney's lab and begins going through the work logs and finds out that the science department had been working on shifting things out of phase using some Ancient do-hickey and that he was helping with the experiment.

It'd be a cool story just because we'd get to see just how smart Sheppard is because he'd have to complete the experiment or fix it and come back from being out of phase (of course, he'd probably assume at first that the rest of the expedition are the ones out of phase until the clue bus hits him that if this was true - the gate would still dial out), also the story would work well with getting into learning about himself and his friends because he'd have to learn about them from reading their logs, journals, video files, and mission reports. Though I don't think that Ronon would be too much with the computer logs/journal thing but it'd be cool for Sheppard to find written journals of Ronon's.

(though in my head I could see Ronon's written journals being letters to Melena, and could point to him sorta asking for her blessing, in a way, for Ronon to feel something more for Sheppard than just as a friend. that's just cuz they're my OTP and I think it'd be an awesome way for Ronon deal with guilt over falling for someone else and also for Sheppard to understand more about Ronon. This wouldn't be essential for the main plot of the story though.)

After he gets 'back', (his memories completely restored) Sheppard finds out that Rodney and the others thought they'd pretty much vaporized him but then he explains what happened and that he fixed things himself and how he did it and the others are surprised and impressed that he'd done it all on his own. Though it might also be a cool way to employ the Sentient!Atlantis idea in a way. Even if she can't outright help with fixing things, she can point Sheppard to things to help him learn about himself and the others.

Story could be totally gen but it'd also be a great way to do a cool amnesia fic with some Sheppard/Ronon since I haven't found any of those yet. But if you like the idea - have at it!

Hey, this reminds me...

Have you read the fic where Sheppard is left on Atlantis due to the city starting a lockdown reboot for a month? And that this trust scientist did it on purpose in order to force Sheppard to "bond" or "interface" with the city? It's called That Sinking Feeling by kashkow. http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3796056/1/That_Sinking_Feeling

He doesn't have amnesia, but it's a cool story...

Ooo...Hadn't seen that one yet! I've been going through delicious links for the last few weeks searching for various things I like to read in fic. Thanks for the link!
ninja007ninja007 on June 15th, 2010 04:40 am (UTC)
Anytime!

When I think of a new one, I'll forward the love...

Hey, have you read Eternity by Kriadydragon, aka Stealth Dragon? It's really good.

I hadn't hit that one yet. I'll definitely give it ago. I really love her stories.
Kaz: Vegas 2 (Sheppard)kazbaby on June 16th, 2010 06:01 am (UTC)
fucking jesus that story is beyond perfect! I'm sitting here in tears and with a stupid grin on my face. I don't know how I could thank you for recc'ing that one to me. ♥

Remember Maayan? She wrote this one that is in my favorites folder:

http://www.butcheredart.net/Fiction/Intimacy.html

It's called Intimacy of Man - five times John had sex...or didn't.
Kaz: Vegas 2 (Sheppard)kazbaby on June 19th, 2010 07:51 pm (UTC)
Dude, that was freaking great! And I could never forget Maayan, she's my go-to fic writer when I need cheering up. :D

Or this one by obsessed1

http://community.livejournal.com/sheppard_hc/73364.html#cutid1

When Sheppard and his team go off-world, things don’t go to plan and Sheppard gets beaten, tied to tree and nearly killed by his team-mates.

The Devil You Know by obsessed1

Sheppard's ill, trapped, tired could his day get any worse? uhh yes. WHUMP

I think that was recc'd to me when I asked for favorite wraith fic on sheppard_hc a few weeks ago. It's damn awesome.
ninja007ninja007 on June 16th, 2010 10:26 am (UTC)
You really need to read these fics by Kriadydragon...
Squaring the Circle and Pyrotechnics.

http://www.fanfiction.net/u/768004/Stealth_Dragon

I guarantee you will LOVE them...

Squaring the Circle: Obsessions are unhealthy. And so is being on the wrong end of an obsessive's experiment. Yep, good times indeed.

Pyrotechnics: Vacations usually don't involve attacks by space pirates, emergency crash landings, wild fires, and saving the day when you're already injured.

Re: You really need to read these fics by Kriadydragon...
I'd read Squaring the Circle before, but not Pyrotechnics. Both are really damn good.

There is a fic in that "Wraith" file I sent you, called "Uncommon Alliance". God you have to read that one!

Summary: Captured by the wraith, Sheppard must find a way to escape before it's too late.

It's one of my favorites. It has Todd in it and Sheppard finds an unlikely friend (not Todd). I always thought it was written by Kriadydragon, but its not. Really well written though.
Kaz: Vegas 2 (Sheppard)kazbaby on June 19th, 2010 07:56 pm (UTC)
Ooo..I think I found this one the other day. It's by Stargalaxy
ninja007ninja007 on June 15th, 2010 03:18 am (UTC)
PS
YES! Great idea! There are never enough Sheppard with amnesia fics. I think there are two... Have you posted this anywhere? Want me to post this at challenges?

Re: PS
I've only posted it here to my journal. Feel free to post it at challenges. I finally found the comm and started watching it (I haven't gotten the nerve up yet to post over there though. Too new to the SGA fandom. I'm a delicate flower, ya know. *snicker*).

*bounce* Thank you for doing that!

Just a tease...

A new author and I are hashing plot ideas for the Adam Lambert challenge I threw down. It's John/Cam s&m, pleasure/pain erotica. Nothing is written as yet. Just going over ideas. She's a very new author and pretty good; she's been writing McShep so far (which as you know, is not my brand of pairing).

I'm excited someone has taken up the challenge. I started to write it myself and have gotten only so far. Still working on it. It's more of a PWP, while the one I'm working on with this other author is more along the lines of a possible series of fics.

Stop flailing, sit down and breathe...

Glad to see that!

Hey hun, I'm here via your sign up post for sg_flyboys, so just a bit late to the party :D

I don't think I can handle the whole bunny at the moment, but the handwritten journals idea really struck me; especially since it's John/Ronon - my OTP :D

I was wondering if you'd be ok with me using the idea as the main basis of a fic? It'll be a little way off but I'd love to see what I could do with it.....??
Kaz: Back to Back (Sheppard/Ronon)kazbaby on October 24th, 2013 01:38 am (UTC)
I have no problems with it, doll. That's why I offered it up in the hopes it'll inspire someone.
wings128: Shex!Canonwings128 on October 24th, 2013 01:44 am (UTC)
*bounces* It may not resemble completely what you imagined but know it's going to a loyal Shex girl :D

It's definitely inspired!
