SGA Fic: Little Storms (PG)

Title: Little Storms
Author: Chandri MacLeod
Pairing: John/Rodney
Category: Romance, Angst, Team (is "John Is An Idiot" a genre?), Friendship
Spoilers: Season 4
Rating: PG
Wordcount: ~17,850
A/N: Written for the
must be dreaming challenge over on sga_flashfic. Which is, as its name would suggest, meant for short fiction, but apparently I was born without the Short Fiction gene, wtf.

Beta by mik100, faster than light.

(None of them like to admit it, but sometimes John’s wrong. Usually it’s Rodney who has to say so.)

Two more hours 'til quitting time. I love you, government job. Then tweaking my first two podfic recordings and hello, long weekend.

It's apparently thirty degrees outside. Er. Well, that was a brief Spring. What the hell, Vancouver? (I just can't catch a break this year, can I?)

formatting note
All of a sudden the story text is *centered* at your website.

This made my chest ache *so* much. I'm not sure I could have forgiven John so easily but oddly enough I think Rodney is a bigger person than me:)

Oh, me too. Emphatically. :)

This was lovely. I found the Athosian ceremony wonderful both in its symbolism and its execution. I thought John's actions were easily believable, and Rodney was human and touching. I really liked that he didn't slip into "Poor little Rodney" mode.
Thanks for sharing this.

I think Rodney wouldn't often, despite outward appearances, do much self-pitying - he'd think it was kind of contemptible, because he can think many different things at once and really, he'd rather other people do the pitying for him. (He's got much better things to do with his brain, after all. ;) Thanks!

Like I said over at Wraithbait (Amanda Beckett), I love this story! Made me so sad and then so happy!

Thank you again! I'm glad you liked. ^.^

Strangely, that's always nice to hear. ;)

But he’s never dealt well with silence, particularly John’s; it’s like he’s finished, like he’s done, and as they pass into the village Rodney feels the despair of that like a twist in his chest. It seems so completely unfair, that John gets to just decide they’re not friends anymore and Rodney doesn’t get a say.

Oh, poor Rodney...... so glad that John was brought to his senses... yay team!
May. 21st, 2008 09:41 pm (UTC)
Yay Team indeed. I honestly don't know what John and Rodney would do without them. :)

I really enjoyed the story most of the way. The only thing that bothered me was Rodney giving in so easily after being hurt for so long.
May. 21st, 2008 09:42 pm (UTC)
I think a lot of that was because of how deeply hurt he was. I'm not sure I would have forgiven John as easily as Rodney did.
May. 18th, 2008 02:14 am (UTC)
So lovely and tender. I really adored this. Thank you!
May. 21st, 2008 09:45 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :D

Re: don't ever change! you're my hero!!!
Thanks and welcome both! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! :D

This was amazing! I love fics where Rodney looks at who he was and what he has become, and the quiet flow of this was lovely.

Also, and I know this sounds silly, but I was pleased that Teyla featured so effectively in this. I love Teyla and think that generally she is criminally underused in fics. (Granted, it's often hard to work Teyla into a McShep fic where the focus is on Rodney and John!).

Thanks so much for writing! :)
May. 21st, 2008 09:48 pm (UTC)
Personally I don't think there's nearly enough introspective!Rodney fic in the world and I'm glad to do what I can to contribute. :D

I really like writing Teyla. A lot of the time I feel she's the only grown-up on the team, but she's also this big part of their lives, and I try to write everything when I write... which may be a part of why everything I write ends up at such ridiculous lengths. ;)

Oh my gosh. This is the first SGA story that made me cry while reading it. This hurt so beautifully and still had a happy ending. I love this.

May. 21st, 2008 09:49 pm (UTC)
The first? Wow, high praise! Thank you! :D
May. 20th, 2008 01:43 am (UTC)
Oh the middle was so depressing and the end so sweet- just like I like em. :D Thank you.
May. 21st, 2008 09:51 pm (UTC)
Me too! Thanks! ^.^
May. 21st, 2008 07:13 pm (UTC)
holy shit that was wonderful. absolutely wonderful. i couldn't help but go with the emotions rodney was feeling, you put it into words so well.

great job.
May. 21st, 2008 09:52 pm (UTC)
Hee. Thanks so much!
May. 24th, 2008 12:41 am (UTC)
This was very satisfying. :)

Thank you! :D
