sgafic: the rules of attraction 4/7

Title: The Rules of Attraction 4/7
Author: Seperis
Codes: McKay, Sheppard, Sheppard/McKay, Sheppard/Kolya (McKay/Teyla, Sheppard/Teyla (implied), Teyla/Ronon)
Rating: NC-17, AU, prostitution, drug use
Summary: The first time Dr. Rodney McKay met Special Agent John Sheppard, he wasn't Dr. McKay and John was Michael Torres. This was balanced, in Rodney's view, by the orgasms. The second time was a lot trickier. It also didn't involve any orgasms at all.
Author Notes: This is mostly complete but not completely edited, so I'm not sure how many parts it will cut into for livejournal. I've been mentally calling this "The One Where John's an FBI Rentboy and Rodney's Very Confused", but that's a little long for a title. Plausibility is so overrated.
Warnings: Please see this entry for warnings.

*****

Okay, this was partially three things converging that delayed me: work, con.txt, and sheer laziness. An object at rest (ie me) won't move for crap, especially if it's for editing. But there you have it.

This part I'd call "The Part Where Rodney Bonds (But No Bondage) and Realizes What Everyone Else Figured Out like, Two Parts Ago. Really, Rodney. How Could You Not Realize This?" And you see why the title for this fic is shorter than that.

movies: they are coming

I have a weakness, and this will totally come as a shock, for movies that embody the concept of finding hope.

So I am ridiculously excited about Henry Poole Is Here and not just because I've loved this actor since he was a vampire in X-Files.

It's done in drama a lot, that search for meaning or finding self, but to be honest, it's done best in comedy, where the ridiculousness isn't whitewashed, since the entire *point* is the ridiculous, that part of human experience that makes no sense and follows no boundaries and kind of catches you out of nowhere. I have no idea if this will live up to expectations, but I got misty while watching the trailer and giggled helplessly, so there we go. Added to the list that so far is:

1.) Hancock (this could be the worst movie ever and I still know I'll love it)
2.) X-Files (may salted slugs crawl up Chris Carter's shorts to die, thank you synecdochic, my insults are now strange and creative these days)
3.) Henry Poole Is Here
4.) Twilight (oh please, like half of you havent' watched the trailer and went guh.)

I'm wary on The Last Mistress and Brideshead Revisited. Cynical works for me only up to a point; It's like Requiem for a Dream. If I want to be depressed, I can watch the news. Or subscribe to Rush Limbaugh, you know?

Anyone looking forward to anything else? I'm curious.

ETA: I forgot:

5.) Dark Knight (I'm wary, though)
6.) Iron Man

whee!

*glee* I have Due South season one! It was on sale! And leaped into my hands! IN that way I had to dig through Frye's shelves to find it.

...also, anyone in Austin, something oddly bizarre is happening at the Half Priced Books on North Lamar (the one near Central Market and by Goodwill, wait, is that Guadalupe?). It looks like a sale, with all sci-fi books up for three dollars and etc. I'm nervous. *chews nail* Also, weridly, big sealed grab bag boxes of movies for twenty but I'm not sure if that's for today or not. I'm not sure what was up with that. If anyone finds out, do tell.

Also, someone made off with a ton of Mercedes Lackey. I have never seen a shelf *stripped* before, uh, well, I have, but that's usually me doing it, so it was disconcerting. I suddenly want to re-read The Black Gryphon.

Got 28 Days Later and Lost Boys and Grease in the *cutest* leather slipcover. The first two for Child, the third for mom. Life nice. Still want the Black and Silver Gryphon though. Seriously. What the hell?

ALSO--got the super awesome Twilight messenger bag from karenhealey and it is so super awesome. It says Twilight on it~! IT IS AWESOME!

Also, for those in Austin currently:

Half-Priced Books near Central Market Has - OZ, Season One, Nip/Tuck, at least two separate seasons (saw four boxed sets while sorting), Slings and Arrows (no idea what season), 24 (several seasons), dammit, there was something else that made me think hmm. Oh! Roswell. At least two boxed sets, one without a box, not sure of the season.

Frye's currently has Due South season one at 19.99, wide screen edition, and has all three seasons (not sure if their three is also four or not).
