Fic: Amnesiac [mckay/sheppard, sga]
He's just about to suggest a before-dinner quickie when the Canadian pulls away and squints up at him, and says, a little breathlessly, "You hit your head, didn't you?"

Fic: Weddings, Plural, and a Yak [mckay/sheppard, sga]
By the eighth time John Sheppard married Rodney McKay, they were old pros at the wedding thing, having weathered not only an Ouishan blood wedding, but also a twelve-hour Avalonian handfasting, a Malanese necklace exchange, and a Thurtu joining ceremony that invoked a fire god and featured seven kinds of cake.

Fic: An Admirable Solution [fraser/kowalski, due south]
Despite himself, Ray felt a sharp prickle of resentment: Fraser was papering over this way too quickly. It felt like the last days with Stella, when she'd stopped fighting with him. That was when Ray knew their marriage was really, really over, when she couldn't be bothered to argue and everything was, "All right, Ray," and "That's fine, Ray," and "Whatever you say, Ray." This thing with Fraser was just the opposite—it had never truly started, despite the sex, despite the partnership, despite everything. This wasn't anything real, this thing between them, because Fraser wouldn't fight with him anymore. In fact, Fraser hadn't fought with him since they'd started fucking, and if you couldn't fight with a person, you weren't a friend, you weren't lovers, you weren't anything.

Dief made a face, his nose crinkling in almost comic distaste. "Terrible. Human. Body," Dief insisted, signing the words decisively. "No coat, and two legs put you off-balance, never mind how you're forced to expose your—"

Fraser felt his eyebrows shoot into his hairline.

"—to everyone, which is really not smart, if you ask me," Dief concluded.

Fic: Hanged Man [fraser/kowalski, due south]
He gets up and heads toward Interrogation Room Two. Fraser follows at a respectful distance, then shuts the door behind them. "Fraser," Ray says, pacing the room; he still can't look at Fraser directly, so he's just a blur in Ray's peripheral vision, "I had drinks with Welsh, and—" He stops and shoves his fingers into his hair; fuck, this is hard, this is so damn hard.

Fraser, for the millionth time, saves his bacon. "Lieutenant Welsh thinks you should get a new partner," Fraser says quietly, and it isn't a question. "Well. I can understand his reasoning." Fraser turns his face away. "Under the circumstances, I'm not of much use to y—" and reason five hundred and sixty three why Welsh is right and Ray should get a new partner is how he's got Fraser shoved up against the wall of the interrogation room and how he's kissing him, because after all these months, this is how thin his control is.

"—which, you know, really isn't typical of him—"

"Isn't typical ?" Vecchio was getting hostile. "Yeah. Yeah, I would say that's not really typical—"

"You want to know what's happening?" Ray interjected angrily. "I'm telling you what's happening!"

"—of Fraser to be fucking three women in twenty-four hours , not when before that he's fucked one woman in ten years—"

"Is this my fault?" Ray shouted into the phone, because damn if it didn't sound like Vecchio was accusing him of something. "No!" he shouted, answering his own question. "No, it is not my—"

"—and that one woman just happened to be a murderous, cop-killing psychopath! Who's he porking now, Lizzie Borden ?"

God, why did Fraser have to go wonky on his watch? Ray let his head thunk against the front of the pay phone.

Fic: Interrogation [fraser/kowalski, due south]
Fraser wondered if Ray was simply going to step away without acknowledgment, severing this moment so quickly that in a minute he'd find himself doubting that it had ever happened. He wondered if he could take that. He had so many doubts as it was.

But Ray didn't. He held Fraser's gaze and said—quietly, inexplicably—: "I don't want to be a cliche, Fraser."

"Sherlock," Molly said with surprising sharpness. "They've given him a sedative."

Molly just looked at him. Sherlock did his best not to tap his fingers, or to tell her that it was a rhetorical question, really. "It had to be done," she said finally. "It'll be for the best," and Sherlock blew out a breath because yes, obviously. Molly reached into a large sports bag and pulled out a white lab coat and a pair of glasses. "Here," she said. "You know your way out."

"You're crowdsourcing the decision to fuck me?" John was incredulous.

"This boy's a danger to himself and others," the man announced. "If you're going to let him swing a lethal object, I suggest you at least put him into quarantine," and then the man stalked off angrily toward the clubhouse. Mr. Kevin took Simon away, weeping. John watched them all go, then bent to tee up.

Rodney stood there a moment, speechless, hands braced on the counter, and then gave in all at once. He turned, nearly tripping over his bags, and tried to fight down his panic: he was God-knows-where, Spangdahlem. There was a bench by the wall near the door; a khaki-clad soldier sat there, staring at the duffle bag that lay at his feet. Rodney dragged his stuff across the room and fumbled for his laptop. Twenty-three minutes of battery life and this room had no outlets, even presuming his international adaptor featured the correct plug for whatever godforsaken hole this— / Rodney looked at the soldier. "Where is this, Germany?" / The solider cut his eyes toward him once, warily. "Yeah."

John had spent the last fifteen minutes staring at the floor in the locker room trying to come up with an answer to that, and he wasn't any closer now. Then Rodney said dreamily, "I have a date at O'Malleys with a steak, a glass of ten-year-old Scotch, and four very big flat-panel TVs. I'm also keeping an option open on dessert."

John blinked. Well, okay. He looked back at Elizabeth and said, "I'm going with Rodney."

This is how Rodney finds himself standing at the registration counter in the overly ornate lobby of the Broadmoor, being handed a key card for room 914. Beside him, Sheppard is looking around warily, like he expects a Wraith to jump out from behind a pink fluted column or a damask armchair. Further down, Elizabeth smiles as she signs something with a pen chained to the desk; Beckett's already taken advantage of the SGA's long leash, and has high-tailed it for the Highlands. Rodney doesn't blame him; compared to Pegasus, Scotland's a hop, skip and a jump.
