Summary: "John Sheppard is on convalescent leave—or at least that’s what he keeps telling himself, though it looks a lot more like hiding in a crappy apartment in Houston, never leaving except for physical therapy and more alcohol. So he’s not sure why he turns up at a kink club, much less why he starts hanging out with Sam Wilson, probably the only other guy on the planet with a tighter security clearance than his—not that either of them much wants to talk about work. Two airmen, both with troubled pasts, find solace in each other one humid Gulf Coast summer. And the strength of the pull John feels toward Sam surprises him more than the odds of their meeting at all."
Why is it the BEST THING EVER: This is the crossover I never knew I wanted - until aerialiste wrote it and I fell in love with this pairing and the story. I'm a big Sheppard fan in SGA and I'm very fond of Sam Wilson in Cap fandom so this story was perfect for me. Plus, John's all gorgeously messed up and wounded - in every possible sense - and Sam's the gentle dom who helps him heal. I enjoyed them both being Air Force and John finding his submissive side with Sam using that to take care of him, and the BDSM aspect is beautifully and expertly written and fully integrated into their character development and how the story plays out - a real treat. A warning that there's content about suicidality and grief, and an apparent major character death in John's recent past - but Rodney's never entirely gone, and note the "angst with a happy ending" tag - it's resolved by the end. I loved every part of this epic and highly recommend it. I suggest subscribing to the fic as there's been a hilarious glossary of Air Force slang as the final chapter which is temporarily down as it's being updated, but aerialiste plans to repost it soon.
