The Publishing AU

Ronon has to be careful. One wrong move will see him on the wrong side of the battle lines -- and he's not sure where those lines are yet. There are things that hold true no matter where one goes, and things that are specific to each group.

Whatever else, Ronon wants the support of Weir and Sheppard both, above and beyond what they gave him by hiring him. He watches them, learns their patterns. Sateda, LLC worked so differently from Atlantis Publishing, Inc. -- but, he knows, no matter which company you work for, some things are always the same.

You Can't Handle The Truth - Wind_Ryder - Black Sails [Archive of Our Own]
James and Thomas are blinking at her with the dull early morning look of two men who very much want to go back to sleep. Miranda swipes her thumb across the screen, and pulls the phone to her ear. "Hello?"

It's Peter Ashe. "Have you seen the news?" he asks, pressing on before she could say a word. "There are pictures in the paper. Intimate ones. Of you, Thomas, and James." Her fingers tighten around the phone. She closes her eyes, and takes a deep breath. Then, pulling it from her ear, she taps the speakerphone button.

"Say that again," she beseeches quietly. He does. He repeats it, and tells them more. At some point in the night, a hacker released dozens of stolen photographs.

Now, all of England and beyond were discussing how an MP of Thomas' reputation was actually gay, that a Naval Officer with James' CV was a home wrecker, and how Miranda was either the victim of her husband's deviations, or a slut begging for more.

Elizabeth Weir had big plans for her proposed Atlantis expedition, but Cam Mitchell had no intention of joining it. He was perfectly happy with the sort of dangerous missions he already undertook and didn't particularly feel the need to go on a possibly one-way trip to a distant alien city. That was what he thought, at least, until he joined General O'Neill on a visit to the Antartic outpost, met an old friend, got shot at with an alien weapon, and found himself volunteering for the mission for reasons that he couldn't quite express. He was pretty sure John was to blame somehow.

Pianos are made for Falling - Fishwrites - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Arthur is a world class violinist, trapped in Sydney, Australia, by his fear of flying. In the wake of a mediocre concert, vicious critics and with barely a month to go before his next (hopefully reputation-saving) recital, Arthur is almost at breaking point. When his accompanist, Morgana, breaks her wrist in a car accident, Arthur is more or less doomed. And the story begins, when the Maestro at the conservatoire, Gaius Stresemann, recommends his protege Merlin Emrys to step in. Merlin, who plays by ear, as he pleases and really just wants to be a kindergarten teacher.

Well. The story really starts six months previously when Arthur passes out drunk outside Merlin's shoe-box apartment.

Duet - lindoreda - The Hobbit - All Media Types, The Hobbit (Jackson movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Composing classical music has always been Bilbo's dream, but it's never worked out the way he intended. Now, middle-aged and desperate, he's beginning to wonder if he'll ever make his mark on the music world. Enter Gandalf, with a grumpy harpist in tow, and the task of writing a piece for him. It might just be what he needs to get through his writer's block... if he doesn't kill Thorin first.

Season to Taste - manic_intent - The Hobbit (Jackson movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Thorin jammed his phone back into his coat with a touch more force than was really necessary as he let himself into his penthouse apartment at the top of Erebor Tower. A disastrous day reassuring shareholders over the ramifications of the Keystone executive decision - which in Thorin’s opinion had no real fucking bearing on Erebor Inc at all, so fucking what if the Obama administration was pushing a climate change agenda - had culminated in that ridiculous Independent tweet fiasco.

Which had naturally, given the nature of the internet, promptly gone viral. Thorin was going to murder the editor at the Independent. Slowly. Contemplating the intricacies of hiring professional hitmen, Thorin shouldered off his suit jacket, stalking over to his bedroom to hang it on the rack, and stopped dead on his way through the living room when he saw Bilbo in the kitchen, produce arranged in neat piles on the benchtop, arms dusty with flour to the elbows, shirt sleeves rolled high.

With Compliments - manic_intent - The Hobbit (Jackson movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“Would you stop staring,” Bilbo hissed, for the fifth time since service had started. “He’s not about to grow horns.”

Bofur looked guiltily away from the door, and scuttled back over to the tail end of appetiser prep. “Just checkin’ if he liked the amuse-bouche.”

“Well,” Bilbo scowled, “We have an entire restaurant to feed, not just Mister Durin, and Lobelia’s in a fine mood tonight, so if I don’t keep you at prep, she’ll light your tail with the blowtorch, I don’t wonder.”

Separation and Clearance Rules for Instrument Flight - ShippenStand - Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG-1 [Archive of Our Own]
The most recent addition to the Atlantis expedition, computer scientist Dr. Cameron Mitchell, has an idea for interfacing Earth computers with the Ancient systems. When Col. Sheppard tells him the city is talking in English, Cam isn't surprised. Given their history, he'd be more surprised if it were Sheppard who suddenly started communicating in English. But when John and the city together discover something that shouldn't be there, something that has the Wraith interested, too, it's going to take more than an interface to keep the city safe.

There are three things in Brad’s life that he can honestly says he loves.

His bike (ever since he laid eyes on it), his job (more of a love-hate relationship), and Nate Fick (he doesn’t say it often enough, probably, or say it at all sometimes, but Nate knows, and that’s the important thing.)

The list is chronological, not in the order of importance.

“I feel you should be aware, sir, that I fucking hate country music. I thought you should know that before you decided whether to hire me or not.”

“Well, Mr. Colbert,” Nate said, leaning back in his chair, “I guess that depends on whether your hatred for Walt’s musical stylings extends to letting him get shot.”

Xmas in Connecticut - Yahtzee - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
In December 1944, the entire nation loves Rebecca Lawrence - "America's Most Beloved Homemaker." Her columns about leading the ideal life in the country help lift people's spirits on the home front during World War II. But when her publisher asks her to host a war hero for Christmas dinner, the world is in danger of learning the truth ... which is that "Rebecca Lawrence" is imaginary. Really, she's a combination of Raven's snappy writing and Charles' knowhow in the kitchen.

However, this war hero, Erik Lehnsherr, is headed to Connecticut, so Raven and Charles have no choice but to find a way to make the imaginary real - at least, just for Christmas. Charles thinks they can pull it off, at least until he opens the door to see Erik and falls in love at first sight.
