ONE

“Would you hurry the fuck up, McKay?” John shouted as he grabbed a fistful of Rodney’s TAC vest and dragged him up to his feet.

“We’re not going to make it.”

“Oh, we’re going to make it,” John snapped. “I’ll be goddamned if my file is going to read that I gotten eaten by a fucking…” He glanced over his shoulder as they caught sight of Teyla at the DHD. “Bat man!”

Rodney sputtered. “Oh Christ, it is Batman isn’t it?” He stumbled a little on the uneven terrain as they ran past the DHD and hit the event horizon at a dead run.

He was laughing by the time they skidding to a halt in the gateroom. John stared at him for a few seconds and started to laugh to. Teyla and Ronon lingered with them, smiling and obviously unconcerned. Rodney leaned into John and they laughed a little harder. It was just another day in the most fucked up galaxy, ever. John wrapped an arm around Rodney’s shoulders and wiped tears from his eyes as he guided him towards the stairs.

“Colonel Sheppard.” Richard Woolsey paused and frowned at them. “Do you need… I mean… your situation seemed quite dire when Teyla dialed in.”

Rodney waved him off. “Another day, another monster.”

John sputtered and started to laugh again.

“Monster,” Richard repeated.

“Oh yeah.” Rodney waved his hands, his eyes a bright with amusement and the good cheer of not being eaten. “Easily seven feet tall, three hundred pounds, wings, and an uncanny resemblance to George Clooney.”

“Clooney?” John frowned as he prodded Rodney towards the infirmary. “Seriously?”

“Well, I can’t very well say he looked like a Batman that I actually liked,” Rodney responded. “Clooney was the biggest mistake ever.”

“Okay, okay.” John unclipped his P-90. “Who’s your favorite? I caution you, McKay, this could be a deal breaker sort of question.”

“Please, Michael Keaton and then Christian Bale.”

TWO

John was the last through the gate and landed unceremoniously on top of McKay, Teyla, and Ronon who were on their bellies, covered in jungle vegetation, all three of them muttering incoherently to themselves. He rolled off of them with a sigh and unclipped his P-90. “Mr. Woolsey, please lock out PX7-E34. We are never going there again. Ever.”

Rodney rolled onto his back and let his tablet PC fall to the floor. “For the record, I think we should avoid tropical, perfect, beautiful planets for the foreseeable future.”

“Yes.” Teyla groaned as she crawled away from them and sat back on her heels. Her hair was a mess of tangles and vines. “I’ve never… seriously. Was that one of those things from Jurassic Park?”

“Velicoraptor?” Rodney guessed as he stood and started to pick leaves off himself. “Agreed, that was a fucking velicoraptor; only they weren’t that big in the movie.”

THREE

McKay shoved John forward across the event horizon and then fell through himself. He landed on his knees and crawled away. “Put up the fucking shield, Chuck!” He slumped down and smiled just as the hundreds of little thumps that hit the shield until the wormhole disengaged.

Ronon shook out his dreads and growled. “I hate you people. I mean, really. I hate you. You just had to say it, Sheppard!”

John groaned and then laughed a little. “Well, hell, who wasn’t thinking it?”

Teyla unclipped her P-90, passed it to a Marine and then started stripping out of her slime covered clothes. “I had plans, John. I was going to have a very nice dinner with my mate and my son had a baby sitter. I was going to have a GROWN UP evening, John. Now… now I will spend the night in the decontamination chamber with the three of you. You will pay for this.”

“This is not my fault!” John protested slipping as he tried to stand. He glared at the Marine who was laughing a few feet away from him. “Corporal Hastings, you’re going to run with Ronon for the next month.” The soldier groaned. “Morning and evening.” He ignored the betrayed look on Ronon’s face and turned to look at Rodney. “McKay?”

“John, in the time that I’ve known you—you’ve gotten me shot at more times than I can count by primitive projectiles of various sizes and shapes, arrows, spears, rocks, and then there were the laser pistols on PX4-Y32 which in retrospect were very cool. Hell, you’ve shot me. I forgave you all of it.” Rodney stood up and started to wipe slime off his computer with steady, careful fingers. “You’re my best friend but if you ever get me slimed by flying alien mucus blobs again I’m not going to be your friend anymore.”

John stared for a second and then he started to laugh. He lay back on the floor of the gateroom and laughed so hard he cried. He grew quiet and then sighed. “You have to admit—nothing that looks that innocent in this galaxy really is. They would have attacked even if I hadn’t said that they were probably going to kill us.”

He screamed only a little when all three of them landed on him.

FOUR

Ronon beat them to the gate and had it dialed out before John even caught sight of the DHD. It was pitch black on the worst planet in the Pegasus galaxy (bar none – he was updating the top ten list when they got back to Atlantis) but the glow of the active wormhole was like a siren’s call. McKay’s labored breathing beside him wasn’t excellent news but at the least they weren’t dead or worse. He tightened his grip on Rodney and groaned softly when the gate went dark.

Rationally, he knew that it would open again in a minute and a rescue team would be coming through. He started putting one foot in front of the other, all but dragging McKay along with him.

“Almost home, Rodney.”

“Hate you.”

John laughed softly. “Hate you back, buddy.”

“At least we answered that question.”

“Yep,” John said grimly. “We sure did.”

“Couldn’t figure out why women couldn’t actively participate in the festival. Just didn’t make sense,” Rodney muttered. “Now, fuck a duck, John—those bitches need Jesus.”

“Yes, they do. We should go back to Earth, pack up Billy Graham and bring his ass out here to deal with them.” He sighed as he heard the Stargate activate again and ten Marines came barreling through. “I love Marines.”

“Me, too,” Rodney confided. “When I get back to Atlantis I’m going to make the engineers build them that anti-gravity game room they want. You wait.”

John staggered briefly but they were already being manhandled and sorted for rescue. “Major Teldy, I’m really fucking happy to see you.”

She laughed. “We’re really happy to see you, too, sir.” She shouldered his weight without even pausing and guided him towards the gate. “Major Lorne is off world so I thought I’d come along and collect you.”

“Excellent.” John patted her briefly and then looked over his shoulder. “We should get a few Jumpers and bomb the shit out of those assholes, Major.”

“What ever you want, sir.”

“See, McKay, that’s why Marines are awesome. They are all about exploding something.”

“I love Marines!” Rodney declared. “They don’t get you drunk and try to sacrifice you to monsters and turn you into Stepford Husbands.”

“Monsters?” Ann Teldy asked.

“Yeah.” John blinked briefly. “You’ll want to quarantine us, Major, and let Dr. Keller know we’ll need full scans. I think we just met a relative of the Go’auld. Probably the creepy cousins that never get invited the reunions. You know, they never bring food, bitch about everything, never offer to clean up or help, and always ask embarrassing questions that no one in their right mind would want to know for real.”

“Go’auld, sir?”

“Yeah, fuck. Just fuck.” His fingers fisted her shirt. “I’m going to pass out now and before I wake up, Major, you make sure that there isn’t anything in me. I mean it.”

“Understood, sir. We’ll take care of it.”

“McKay, too. You watch his ass until I wake up.”

“I promise,” Ann bit down on her lip. Watching McKay’s perfectly amazing ass really wasn’t a hardship after all. “I’ll watch yours, too.”

“Thanks, you rock.”

FIVE

“You’ve got to be fucking kidding me,” Teyla whispered, her mouth dropping open in complete surprise.

Rodney dropped his head and took a deep breath. When Teyla said the ‘f’ word on a mission they all knew they were screwed. The whole universe knew they were screwed. There were Ancients (assholes) up above them floating around in glowy squid piles laughing their tentacles off because of how fucked up this was going to be.

“It doesn’t appear to be dangerous.” Sheppard frowned. “It’s kind of cute.”

“Did it tell you what to call him?” Ronon asked.

Rodney groaned. “For the love of Stephen Hawking! That movie was not based on anything in reality, the book was a rip off of a better story, and there is no such thing as…” He trailed off. “Shit.”

John cleared his throat as the… well… hell… as the dragon tumbled onto it’s belly and a little trail of smoke snorted out of her nostril. “I’m going to call her Meredith.”

The gasps of the nearby and completely forgotten priests caught Ronon’s attention and pulled out his weapon. “Sheppard.”

“Yeah.” John took a deep breath and turned to the leader of the village. “You were saying about the egg being a gift from the Ancestors?”

“Only to hatch in the presence of it’s name giver,” the man smiled then—big and way too friendly to be believed. “Now we must prepare for the sacrifice.”

“Sacrifice?” Rodney demanded. “You aren’t sacrificing Sheppard!”

“No, of course not.” The man laughed. “We shall sacrifice the gift.”

John snatched the tiny dragon up off the ground and cuddled it close to his chest.  “The hell you will!”

“Colonel…” Teyla started and then looked at the little dragon, which couldn’t have weighed more than five pounds, and then focused on the village leader. “Right, the Colonel has decided to keep his dragon. We’re leaving.”

“No! It must be sacrificed. It will steal from us and destroy our herds.”

“No, it won’t.” Rodney got between John and the man. “Because it’s coming home with us. I’m afraid we must insist, Administrator Doran. Surely you don’t want to upset the Colonel and our trade agreement by killing his gift from the Ancestors?” Rodney used his hand to shoo the team behind him and they all started to back up.

“It is our way and it is disrespectful for you not to follow our customs!”

“Oh, fuck off.” Rodney snapped. “You know I’m really tired of all the stupid customs! We have a few customs of our own, you know and none of you bastards ever think about honoring ours! We have to drink the ceremonial wine and we have to eat the ceremonial food –which for the record is disgusting. We have to sit through hours and hours of ritual that mean absolutely nothing to us. This galaxy’s rampant disrespect for my attention span is beyond the pale.” He stumbled briefly as they backed out of the temple but Ronon caught him. “Right, so we’re leaving and we’ll be back in a few weeks with the medicines we promised in exchange for the crops. If that arrangement doesn’t suit you—we can try the Koreilians. They don’t make us participate in stupid rituals.”

Ronon cleared his throat. “Yeah, they do.”

“I said stupid rituals. There is nothing stupid about a sex ritual.”

Ronon snorted. “Right, those people. I love that planet.” He hefted his gun at a priest who tried to get close to them. “Back off – Sheppard is keeping his dragon.”

Somewhere near the entrance of the village they all four turned and ran like hell for the gate. Teyla made it to the DHD ahead of them and started dialing. “What will you tell Woolsey?”

“She’s a victim of religious persecution.” John patted Meredith and the tiny dragon preened under his hand.

“Meredith?” Rodney demanded in a fierce whisper as the wormhole activated.

“Yeah, she’s the color of your eyes,” John grinned.

“I suppose you think that’s romantic,” McKay muttered. “Naming a little blue, fire breathing lizard after me.”

“It’s a dragon,” John corrected. He hooked his free arm through Rodney’s as the approached the gate. “Now, you have to promise you won’t let Xenobiology hurt her with any experiments.”

“Promise,” Rodney muttered as he pushed him through the wormhole.

  1. Great fun!

  2. Ah, that was cute!

  3. These were excellent. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Love this line:

    “See, McKay, that’s why Marines are awesome. They are all about exploding something.”

    These were great!

  5. Loved it!
    Dragons and Rodney belon to each other. 😉
    Of course John belongs too.

    Nice little ficis that really made my day.

  6. ahahahahahahaha!! you had me weeping with laughter*cackles madly* and John naming the dragon Meredith…priceless*g*

  7. You have an incredible knack for wonderfully funny dialogue. This story was just delightful. Though now I want to know how the dragon turns out. 🙂

  8. Totally awesone, you’re rock, it’s so cute and funny, omg i’m smile like a crasy girl. Thanks a lot to share.

  9. :: Giggles :: Oh, dearest ghods, that was nice!

    Thanks.

    ~L

    P.S. I am glad your muse is active again!

  10. AH-HAHAHA, wonder if Major Ann kept more than a close eye on McKay’s ass in that Goa’uld one!
    *snickersnort*
    I forgive you for the five things… thing. *waves hand magnanimously*
    So long as you keep writing the hilarious crack. 😉
    —–}-@

  11. That was one of the best things I’ve read in ages! Loved the Billy Graham comment.

  12. Hilarious. I totatly agree with McKay on who’s the best batman.What was Rodney refering to when he said,“For the love of Stephen Hawking! That movie was not based on anything in reality, the book was a rip off of a better story, and there is no such thing as…”

    • I was wondering the same thing. I could be wrong, but the reference could be Eragon…it is the only story (made into a movie) that gets more guff about being too closely related to another story AND has a blue dragon that I can think of. I don’t see how Hawking’s children story ‘George’s Secret Key to the Universe’ can relate to anything with a dragon in it. Although, it is said to be “Harry Potter” like, and Harry Potter does have dragons, although I don’t remember any blue ones.
      This fic was very funny, by the way. 😀

    • The movie he was referencing was “Eragon” which I actually happened to like and the book was a pure joy to read. However, knowing Rodney he would have had a problem with it and how it mirrored a great many elements from the series The Dragonriders of Pern :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragonriders_of_Pern

      • Ah! One I haven’t heard of, Dragonriders of Pern. So *that* is the story ‘Eragon’ and the following fics is said to have mirrored. I, myself, enjoyed Eragon, also.
        You know, I would like to see more of what could ensue after the team brings the baby Meridith back to Atlantis…hint, hint. *Hands big box of cookies as bribe*

      • Firstly – Keira you Rock! – these were awesome and I know this ’cause when I got to the end of each element – I wanted more! *G*

        Secondly – I love The Dragonriders of Pern – and I actually met Anne McCaffrey back in the late 80s. It’s too damned bad that her homophobic son is now taken over her ‘series’. There have been a few Dragonriders/SGA crossovers – generally what I’ve stumbled across have been WIPs. I’m praying some day – one will be complete.

        Anyways I just wanted to say “Brava! Brava! Bravissimo!”

        • Now that would be an interesting read… One of the worlds on the other side of the gate has dragons that bond with the right person. The dragons think wraith and ori taste yummy and hate snakes with an insane passion. Some dragons are big enough to swat darts and other are small and fast. They would make awesome gate guards for lots of planets.

  13. Very cute with, enjoyed all the monsters. Awww, the dragon story is so adorable. My favorite is the fourth story, laughed at Teldy carrying John as he and Rodney discussed why they love Marines. Nice collection of “5 things”.

  14. Lmao these were great!!

  15. I love it, this whole fic is made of awesome.

    However, one suggestion: perhaps slime instead of slim and slimed instead of slimmed? Or my observation could be off.

    Either way the fic is fantastic and I absolutely love baby dragon Meredith!

  16. “Meredith?” Rodney demanded in a fierce whisper as the wormhole activated.

    “Yeah, she’s the color of your eyes,” John grinned.

    “I suppose you think that’s romantic,” McKay muttered. “Naming a little blue, fire breathing lizard after me.”

    “It’s a dragon,” John corrected. He hooked his free arm through Rodney’s as the approached the gate. “Now, you have to promise you won’t let Xenobiology hurt her with any experiments.”

    “Promise,” Rodney muttered as he pushed him through the wormhole.

    :: snicker :: This was lovely. Thanks!

    ~L

  17. *giggling*

    Awwwwww! A baby dragon?!

    These were great!

  18. I liked all of them, but the last one was adorable. I also liked that you included Major Teldy in the fourth one. That was fun!

  19. LOL that was really cute.
    And to name the dragon Meredith was a stroke of genius. 🙂

    great work, thank you. 🙂

  20. The best line ever: “You’ve got to be fucking kidding me,” Teyla whispered, her mouth dropping open in complete surprise.

    Rodney dropped his head and took a deep breath. When Teyla said the ‘f’ word on a mission they all knew they were screwed. The whole universe knew they were screwed.

  21. “Oh, we’re going to make it,” John snapped. “I’ll be goddamned if my file is going to read that I gotten eaten by a fucking…” He glanced over his shoulder as they caught sight of Teyla at the DHD. “Bat man!”

    *dies laughing*

    All of these were awesome!

    I just want to tell you how much I love that you referenced “Eragon” and Dragonriders of Pern (hands-down my favorite sci-fi books). Dragons in Atlantis….now that would have been such an excellent storyline. *sigh*

  22. Oh this was great. I loved the “a victim of religious persecution” line.

  23. this made me giggle and be all sorts of happy! 🙂 🙂

  24. These were all fabulous, but I have to say that my absolute favourite bit was when Rodney couldn’t hold it in any longer:

    “Oh, fuck off.” Rodney snapped. “You know I’m really tired of all the stupid customs! We have a few customs of our own, you know and none of you bastards ever think about honoring ours!…”

    Ahahaha. God I love him. And can you imagine how hard it’s been for Rodney to “be good” about all that “cultural sensitivity” and stuff? Heh.

    Wonderful stuff. Many thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • That is so true. It always annoyed the hell out of me that the stargate personal is constantly made to do all this wierd shit but the aliens never have to follow any of our customs.

      Also, when I read number five I could hear O’Neil in my head going ‘but Daniel I want a dragon too’.

      • “…I could hear O’Neil in my head going ‘but Daniel I want a dragon too’…”

        *snicker*

        Personally, I’d love to see Keira write a “Dragonriders”/”Stargate(s)” crossover…

  25. love the humor! when I read “monsters” I expected scary or creepy, but was delighted to find several smiles and a snicker or two.

    My favorite lines:

    >>>Rodney muttered. “Now, fuck a duck, John—those bitches need Jesus.”

    “Yes, they do. We should go back to Earth, pack up Billy Graham and bring his ass out here to deal with them.” He sighed as he heard the Stargate activate again and ten Marines came barreling through. “I love Marines.”

    “Me, too,” Rodney confided. “When I get back to Atlantis I’m going to make the engineers build them that anti-gravity game room they want. You wait.”<<>>“Colonel…” Teyla started and then looked at the little dragon, which couldn’t have weighed more than five pounds, and then focused on the village leader. “Right, the Colonel has decided to keep his dragon. We’re leaving.”<<<

    Hee! delightful

  26. OMG! My favorite is Five. I love it! I absolutely LOVE this fic. LOL Very very nice… thanks so much! I almost want to ask for more, but… well this is great as is… lol

  27. Love the story, very amusing and giggle inducing. With the hectic pace my life has taken lately I definitely needed to laugh so thank you for that and love the mention of the blue dragon, it reminds of a series that i’ve read when I was youger, can’t recall the name.

  28. I think that Meredith totally deserves her own story!

    • Hell, yeah. I wonder if Sheppard finds Meredith as hard to train as her namesake?

    • Ditto ^__^. I’ve actually got a plot bunny gnawing on my ear now from this. Ms. Marcos, do you object to people writing sequels to your fics, as long as proper credit is given to the original *FREAKIN GENIUS* author in question?

      • While I’m always pleased if my work inspires writers to have ideas of their own and I wouldn’t be necessarily opposed to a AU of any of my work on general principle — I wouldn’t want to see sequels to my actual work. I’m sort of stingy I guess. I feel like an asshole for saying that.

        • You aren’t an asshole. I totally understand why you don’t want to see sequels – it is YOUR work, after all, not mine. Actually, though, the plot bunny in question is AU – it just had its birth from your little fic, which is why I asked permission, because the idea was originally yours. Do you object to me writing a separate story about Rodney and John and a baby dragon, and stating that the dragon idea was originally yours?

          • I can hardly wait to read it 😉

          • Let us know when it’s written, okay? And Keira: I’d love to see YOU write a sequel, or even a series, ’cause I’d love to see what happens with “Meredith” (and maybe some of her siblings?) on Atlantis.

            Speaking of SGA + dragons, has anyone here read the SGA/”Temeraire” crossovers by [LJ]sheafrotherdon?
            First one’s here:
            http://community.livejournal.com/sga_santa/170871.html
            …and IIRC there’s a link to the sequel somewhere in the comments…

            BTW, if you liked “Dragonriders of Pern”, and haven’t yet read Naomi Novik’s “Temeraire” series… Highly recommended.

  29. LMAO OMG these were totally awesome.

  30. FUN reading!!!!
    Got more of these???
    Hugz
    Tove

  31. I particularly liked the dragon story. Sheppard would totally bring a dragon back home; I can almost see Mr Woolsey’s face on the other side of the gate. ^__^

  32. This was a joy to read. And the last one…! A little blue fire-breathing dragonet! Lovely.

  33. ‘When Teyla said the ‘f’ word on a mission they all knew they were screwed. The whole universe knew they were screwed. There were Ancients (assholes) up above them floating around in glowy squid piles laughing their tentacles off because of how fucked up this was going to be.’

    That was utterly hilarious! Cause, really, Teyla is so dignified and everything that when she starts swearing, you ~know~ something is up. XDD Awesome!

  34. “This galaxy’s rampant disrespect for my attention span is beyond the pale.”

    My stomach HURT from laughing at that line. My roommates all thought I was a lunatic because of all the cackling I did while reading this fic as a whole. I really, really wanna see a follow-up on the dragon – if only to see the look on Elizabeth’s face when she hears the dragon’s name.

  35. Meredith?” Rodney demanded in a fierce whisper as the wormhole activated.

    “Yeah, she’s the color of your eyes,” John grinned.

    “I suppose you think that’s romantic,” McKay muttered. “Naming a little blue, fire breathing lizard after me.”

    “It’s a dragon,” John corrected. He hooked his free arm through Rodney’s as the approached the gate. “Now, you have to promise you won’t let Xenobiology hurt her with any experiments.”

    “Promise,” Rodney muttered as he pushed him through the wormhole.

    right there…. that’s why I’m so in love with your work.

  36. Okay, that’s another little series if ever there was one!! Rodney and the Dragon.

  37. LOVED!

    Especially Meredith the dragon 😉

    And “You’ve got to be fucking kidding me,” – best line ever!

  38. my absolute favourite of the stand alone stories so far!!!!!!!!!
    especially little Meredith… *dreaming about her own little dragon… mmhhh* XD
    i’ve read this story so often now, I should know it by heart. ^^

    Lilith

  39. Batmen, velociraptors, mucus blobs, OH MY! Great story and a really fun read but I really loved the sweet ending, John so protective of “Meredith” and the rest of the team backing him to the hilt. Woolsey would have a cow over a dragon in the city. Would love to see his face when he saw it for the first time.

  40. what great fun!

  41. A dragon in the city is worth two in the bush. How else are they going to keep the Marines in line?

    I like the dragonriders of Pern, too. The Dragon Harper one by Todd’s apparently based on the great flu epidemic in the early 19… 18-20?

  42. This is absolutely terrific! The entire thing was incredibly funny, but this part:

    “Now, fuck a duck, John—those bitches need Jesus.”

    “Yes, they do. We should go back to Earth, pack up Billy Graham and bring his ass out here to deal with them.”

    I think I may have strained something. 😀

  43. eeeeee! A dragon! Love it. Then they go back at night, and steal all the other eggs. 😀

  44. I want Meredith…and I don’t care which one…both are awesome and lovely!!!

  45. “John—those bitches need Jesus.” That just killed me! Great job all around.

  46. Hello,
    I just re read the story of Monsters again. I love, love, love this story. Especially Meredith!!!!!!!!!!
    I hope to read more about her as she grows up with John and team. Thank you for sharing your delightful mind.

  47. You know I read something so fun, and humorous like this and think we got cheated. Why couldn’t they have done a fun episode showing the funny monster montage gate trips because you just know it happened over and over like you wrote it. Except maybe the dragon, but the dragon is the best part along with his name. Oh, and Rodney bitching about the rituals –
    “You know I’m really tired of all the stupid customs! We have a few customs of our own, you know and none of you bastards ever think about honoring ours!…”
    is made of win.

    And Rodney would so protect the dragon from xenobiology, I can hear the rant now.

    Thank you for 5 more great things!

  48. I’ve read this over and over again and it still never gets old. Thanks for giving a short but hysterical glimpse of the Pegasus galaxy!

  49. I just have to say that it isn’t very often that I run across a story that not only makes me lose my shit laughing but has me rereading it two times immediately following the first. I love your stuff, been reading it for the last two weeks, ever since my friend recommended you but this one has to be my favorite one shot. From now on, whenever I need a good laugh, I’m reading this. I think I’ll be laughing to myself for days just recalling the dialogue. I just have to thank you for making my day so much brighter.

  50. OMFG!!! LOL I … this… SQUEE!!!! Monsters, and rituals and DRAGONS, OH MY!!! 😀 My question now is, where are they going to keep a dragon?!?!? LOL And how big will she get? And can we send her to other worlds to eat people we don’t like!!! 😀

  51. So, after I had a nice re-read of this lovely fic, I took a look at the comments. (I like to read comments – I’m weird that way.)

    And what do I see? No comment from me!? WTF?! This is one of my favorite, quick, happy reads!

    I adore this fic! The “Flying alien mucus blobs”, always makes me laugh, and the baby Dragon…..OMG! It’s just sooooo right and cute and awesome! “Dragonriders of Pern” is my all time favorite book series, and you pared it with McShep!! I think I exploded with fandom love the first time I read this. Heck, I still do when I re-read it! 🙂

  52. Just fricking awesome little dragon…MEREDITH?? So great♥♥♥♥

  53. greywolfthewanderer

    fucking *awesomesauce*!!!

  54. A blue dragon. I’m jealous. We should all have blue dragons!

  55. You wrote a five things fic. I liked it.

    I think the seventh seal just broke. The horsemen will ride. Their names are Annoyance, Entitlement, Laziness, and Creeper. They ride My Little Ponies.

    I want a Meredith-Dragon of my own.

  56. I too want a Meredith dragon of my own. This was great.
