If you want to kiss the sky by SiegeOfAngels (R)
"Look," McKay says, pushing John away firmly, "not that I don't love excessively masculine bonding activities as much as the next guy, but in case you hadn't noticed from the stylish blue panels on my jacket--" and he points both of his index fingers toward the jacket John's letting go of--"I'm a civilian. My involvement in your homoerotic military rituals begins and ends at target practice."

A holiday-appropriate story from SGA and two from Harry Potter.

Here's Looking At You (HP): Some Muggle inventions aren't all that useless for wizards after all – or so Minister Shacklebolt claims. His Muggleborn employees suspect that the real reason behind his sudden enthusiasm for magi-technical innovation at the Ministry is the fact that he found out about internet porn, but that isn't terribly relevant for the following story…

Arctic Drift (SGA): penguin!fic: "Tell me we didn't just adopt an egg." It shouldn't have been possible, but John sounded intrigued and irritated at the same time.

Unavoidably Detained (HP): They're about to be late for an engagement. Very late.

An explosion in the abandoned sections sends Atlantis personnel scrambling to find out why. In another universe, Atlantis has fallen. All that's left of the expedition are a group of young refugees fighting for survival in the unexplored regions of the city, transported to a parallel universe by and Ancient device. What started out as a humanitarian effort to heal the kids becomes something more as they begin to find their way in this new universe, like their own but different in fundamental ways. They change the very fabric of Atlantis, and a few meddling kids might be what certain people need to realize what's right in front of their faces.

Unsurprisingly, he wants to go back with John (if they can ever find a way to power the darn device), but how can he convince John?

Rodney agrees to take John to dinner so that John can spend some with Sara and from there you have one of the best letter-romances ever (primarily because there's very little romance involved).

The story opens when Rodney McKay, world famous scientist and genius yadda yadda, is killed. Heh. The best part of the DLM universe is that no one's life gets interesting until they die. Anyway, Rodney finds out that he is a Grim Reaper in charge of escorting souls into the afterlife. Rodney is not impressed, especially not when he meets the rest of his crew: Jack O'Neill, Daniel Jackson, Ronon and, of course, John. Fortunately for Rodney, John takes him under his wing and soon Rodney is learning the ropes of his new profession and developing one hell of a crush on John (who doesn't exactly seem impervious to the interest). Things are starting to look up until John's miserable luck comes to bite them in the ass (Kolya, anyone?)

Ways to Die in the Pegasus Galaxy by Crysothemis (NC-17)
John notices that every time he nearly gets killed, Rodney sneaks into his room to sleep with him (*just* sleep). At first John thinks it's kind of weird, but soon he adapts and it's amazing how often he nearly dies over the next few months...

In the Silent Water by tigerlady (NC-17)
A Big Bang story. Set sometime after S3...Atlantis is moving to its new home, still carrying wounded from the war against the Asurans. Just when it seems that they are safe, they find out the stargate doesn't work, the Apollo has disappeared, and there might just be a sabateur on board.

Theory of Evolution by lavvyan (NC-17)
Post Iratus-bug transformation (sorry, I'm completely incompetent when it comes to episode titles), John *doesn't* change back to a human. Physically, at least. His mind is fine, however, and Rodney (with whom John has been having a long-standing, casual affair) announces he doesn't care about John's appearance. John, on the other hand...

That Pon Farr Thing by chelle (NC-17)
After touching an Ancient artifact (natch), John starts having seizures. The only cure? Cuddling with Rodney. Which leads to a little research with Elizabeth and Radek, a little voodoo with Carson, and a little bit of angst for flavor. Viva la fluff!

The Dark Side by astolat (R)
Through some exceedingly questionable delegating, jedi!Rodney is sent off to save a planet that's being sucked dry by darth!John and it takes approximately half a second for Rodney to get captured. He barters some repair work on John's ship in exchange for his freedom.

Every God in His Sphere by Zoe Rayne (NC-17)
John heads to a bath house in Denver for anonymous sex to sublimate his frustrations from dealing with the SGC. Guess who else shows up.

Advantage by Resonant (NC-17)
While on an away mission, John is marked with a temporary tattoo that makes him follow Rodney's orders (well, mostly). That may seem like a great thing for Rodney, but suddenly John's around looking for orders *all the time* and also being compelled by the tattoo to make Rodney healthier by cutting off his caffeine supply and forcing him to eat apples. You can just imagine how much Rodney likes that.

No Refunds or Exchanges by astolat (NC-17)
Rodney McKay is stationed at a mostly safe and, apparently, not too classified Atlantis and is in desperate need of a maid. Unfortunately, any and all support personnel are immediately sucked up by the severely understaffed labs, so Rodney goes for the obvious second choice: mail-order bride. You can see why I like this story so much. Also? I bet you can guess exactly who the 'bride' turns out to be.
