Summary: At thirty-seven, John Sheppard came to the unfortunate and completely fucked up conclusion that he was in love with Rodney McKay. McKay is fresh out of a relationship and John isn’t interested in ruining their friendship with a rebound thing.

Rodney waited for years for John Sheppard to look at him. There had been a time when he would have given anything for his best friend to turn to him and return the foolish, inappropriate love he himself harbored. He thinks he’s moved on but what happens when he turns to John and sees everything he’d ever wanted just waiting for him?

Rating: PG-13 (for adult language)
Word Count: 5,039
Spoilers: None
Genre: AU, Romance
Author’s Note: This was originally posted on Evil Author Day as an excerpt of what I wanted to be a longer piece but I never could get the plot that I planned to advance. It just always seemed like I was done and finally I decided that I was. Besides, I don’t have a whole lot of non-explicit slash on the site.

Summary: John is seriously fed up with the loud guy with the nice ass taking his table.

Title: When You’re Gone

Title: I, Spy
Prompt: McShep Match 2010 Entry- Team Play- blind alley
Pairing(s): McKay/Sheppard
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Explicit sex and foul language
Beta(s): Chris King, Ladyholder and Djaddict.

Summary: Wanting John was second nature to me but until recently I’d thought I’d buried the sex thing under a pile of friendship and shared traumatic experiences. I really shouldn’t find the man sexy any more. We’ve shared a latrine off-world. I’d seen him bleed. I watched him turn into a big blue bug. John Sheppard shouldn’t be sexy to me anymore. Really.

    I wrote “Moments” in response to a challenge in the LJ Community McSheplets. I normally don’t participate in challenges nor do I take requests. To be honest, since fanfic writing is a stress reliever for me– I try not to participate in activities within the community that would put pressure on me or stress me out. I was just inspired that day by the prompt from McSheplets.

  5. Hi there! Just wanted to say that I’ve read all of your stories and enjoy the hell out of them. The amount of detail you put into each one is absolutely astounding. You must do a pretty hefty amount of research (or just be insanely well-read)!

    Thanks for choosing to share your work with all of us. :o)

  6. I’ve been a fan of your fic for years, your McShep fascination definitely works for me, even all these years after cancellation. I love the character development you worked on for so many players in the series & adore the fact you see their world exactly the way I do too! Thanks for of your hard work! 🙂

  7. Just wanted to let you know I love your work. If I am ever feeling the need for a vacation from my real life this is my first and favorite stop!
