I just added someone's post to my memories. When you're doing that, the page says, "Who can see that you've marked (this entry as memorable?)" and for a moment I thought it said "Who can see that you're naked...?" I'm only naked under my clothes, damn you. You...you can't see me, can you? *paranoia*
Obligatory SGA content: I saw a story mentioned the other day, an AU where Rodney was in the military and John was a scientist (Chaos Theory by Amireal, mentioned here). Are there any other stories out there based on this idea?
Fandom is a hive mind, and cliches are like viruses traveling through its blood (friendly viruses, like the Ebola plush doll) which is why I'd already been kicking that fantasy around for a while. Rodney is my current Spike--I give him makeovers the way I did Spike, though mostly in my head and less so in stories. Not because I don't like these characters as they are, but because they are my toys and they must bend to my will and dance at my whim. Dance, tiny soldier Rodney, dance!
Anyway. Colonel McKay. Is there more of him out there? Where he's all tight, lean muscle and stubbled iron jaw, and can shoot the wings off a fly at a hundred yards? And he knows jujitsu and krav maga, and once skinned an elk with his bare teeth while crossing the Yukon on foot? In winter? Or something like that.
