Title: The Sheppard Identity
Rating: PG13
Genre: Angst
Warning: Mild infrequent swearing
Author Notes:
If you haven't previously read 'The Laundry Ultimatum' you may not understand who the character Sgt Ward is, or what his role is on Atlantis. He does crop up in the other two stories, but that's the one that's also told from his perspective.

I originally wrote this for the sga_genficathon but then realised as soon as I finished it that this isn't gen. And therefore doesn't count. Which is where 'The Ancient Legacy' came from. Think of this as one possible outcome from the fallout of that story. :)

Many thanks also to for all the reassurances on this story. It's been...a toughie to write.

Title: At The Crossroads
Rating: PG :)
Characters: Teyla centric, with a little Team, Torren and Kanaan.
Warnings/Spoilers: AUish for the end of series 5.
Word Count: 1067
Author's Note: I wrote this a couple of years ago, before the series ended, so it should be considered AUish for the series end I suppose :) Also huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] tli who not only betaed this, but put up with me whining about it to!
Summary:  Atlantis has been recalled to Earth, and Teyla must decide where her future lies.

The Rules: Sometimes it's ok to pimp yourself out. Post a list of your top five fic-favorites you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most. Then tag five other people to do the same.

The Other Rules: After each story, add a little something about what you learned about writing in the process. Or, if you didn't learn anything, add something that fits contextually with the time of writing the story.

1. The Little Britain Trilogy: Little Britain / The Last Room / The Marked  Fandom = Star Trek: Enterprise
Lesson Learnt: Sometimes having a plot worked out beforehand is better than diving in and working it out as I go along (that said, it's not a lesson I've learnt well lol). Also, I loved this story, all three of 'em, I loved the OCs I created and I just loved it - even if by the end it wasn't that popular :)

2. Aftermath   Fandom= Star Trek: Enterprise
Lesson Learnt: Well, I learnt the value of a good beta-reader. Plus, it was a learning curve character wise - not in huge ways - but yeah. This one does hold a special place with me.

3. Croonin' Along to the Warp Core        Fandom= Star Trek: Enterprise
Lesson Learnt: This was EPIC! And so much fun to write - the research that went into getting all the lyrics and the songs - it was just silly humour really. There was a lesson here in research and restraint in a way - I didn't go as mad with it as I originally wanted to, and I'm glad I reigned it in because I loved the end result.

4. Denial       Fandom= Life On Mars
Lesson Learnt: I didn't as such learn a lesson from this, it was my first attempt at Life On Mars fanfic and looking across all my other LOM stories probably the best. I did learn I prefer writing Gene over Sam though if that counts :)

5. Mission Report         Fandom= Stargate Atlantis
Lesson Learnt:  That past childhood traumas over films involving talking toasters can always be solved by having fictional characters beat said toaster with a broken lamp. Seriously, The Brave Little Toaster scared the crap out of me when I was young.

I tag everyone whose reading this :)

It both worries and amuses me that two of my worst line entries are in under the 'shamefully most want to read' bit.


Clicky clicky to vote for the worst line ever to begin a fanfic, the story you shamefully would actually like to read, and what you want to do to the bastards who cancelled SGA!!

Title: Mission Report
Humour, Artificial Intelligence

Title: Sticks and Stones

I am really irritated. Sky has withdrawn sky one from the ntl virgin media channels which means that I am gonna miss the last two episodes of Atlantis and SG1.

*sigh* I may have to rely on youtube to see the final episodes *scowls*
explodedpen: (sunrise-rodney)
explodedpen: (asskissing)

*coughs* Ahem. So yeah, not a bad episode really :P

Thought it was about time for another entry into the old journal.

Well, I haven't progressed with schoolwork, I haven't been able to stay near a computer long enough to even think about writing the next chapter for the Marked, which is shameful really. I'm also cursing the time I've spent not doing anything (although not doing anything consisted purely of the two days it took me to read Eragon and it's sequel Eldest - which are pretty nifty books really)

So in order to make it look like I've done something, here is a one shot atlantis fic that has only previously ever been put up on my website because its not great but I still like it in all its total stupidity/weirdness...
