group four: stargate:atlantis, smallville, dr. who
children of dune - leto 1
And sadly, last group for today.

From here, following group one, group two, and group three.

From twilight_angel - Crimes Against Humanity 'verse: Five times Rodney wished he could have known John before they met.

1. Rodney thinks of that mind when he could have shaped it, John's chaos leashed to logic and gentled to Rodney's will. No one would have seen them coming.

(Christ, so beautiful, electric and reckless and viciously practical, who carried weapons like they were parts of his body. Rodney would kill for that. Anyone would.)

2. When John first joined the SGC, before they began to break him.

(Hairline psyche fractures come standard with conditioning; Mitchell did the rest.)

3.) When Rodney was recruited into the SGC.

(He wonders if he would have let Mitchell live. Something slow to make him hurt, long so he can watch. So there's nothing John is that isn't Rodney's, too.)

4.) John's defection.

(The galaxy couldn't have stood against them. And maybe them, he wouldn't be afraid of Lorne and all the ways John isn't fully his.)

5.) When he first arrived in Atlantis.

(Before he fell apart.)

From innocentsmith - SV - Five fictional characters Lex Luthor would like to meet/hang out with/hire.

1. Brian Kinney

(He'll be honest and say Queer as Folk had a dramatic effect on what he considered acceptable sexual partners.)

2. Tony Stark

(Clark thinks its the suit, but it's not. Lex can't get over the guy beat him at everything, ever. Lex is just saying, if the next issue has him taking over the world, Marvel will not survive the night.)

3. Gilbert Blythe

(He's always wanted to know how Gilbert made Anne love him.)

4. John Sheppard

(Fine. Hair envy. Happy?)

5. His father

(Because the man he imagined loved him, and that's the person he wants to claim.)

beadattitude - Five things Ten.5 likes about being earthbound.

1. The thousand ways a single sun can rise.

2. Rose's hair when she's cleaning their flat.

(Too many barrettes and the bit that falls over her eye that she pushes behind her ear.)

3. Sleeping until noon.

(Seriously, someone should have told him about that. Naps, too. Humans make so much more sense when you relate them to their sleep patterns.)

4. Sex.

(So much more fun than it looks. How humans evolved past their libido is a mystery.)

5. A place he can finally stand still.

(He gets a cat and a car. He watches the birth of his daughter. He goes in a house, closes the door, and wraps himself in the arms of the home he will never have to leave.)

The Dr.Who ones are awesome. I love that the doctor's fascination of all things human continues, but his joy at being a full participant shines through.

I wonder if he'll ever take a name?

Thanks for sharing!


You know, I've wondered about that, too.

I was going to post favourite lines, but then I realised that would be overkill.
I love these so much :)

... ok, just one favourite line.

3. Gilbert Blythe
(He's always wanted to know how Gilbert made Anne love him.)
Anne of Green Gables!! This makes me so very happy.

Oh, more "Humanity" 'verse! *is so happy*

*bounces* They are hard to escape.

So, you're working on another chapter, right?

(Deleted comment)
I think I need to reread Crimes Against Humanity - it's been a while since I wallowed in the epic story of sociopaths in love

*g* It makes me ridiculously happy sometimes.

1. The thousand ways a single sun can rise.

I love that.
Love it, love it, love it, because it's the Doctor, and he has seen such sights, but never for long, you know, and it's just absolutely perfect that this is something he's never gotten the chance to notice before now, how wonderful a place can be even if you don't have all of time and space at your fingertips.

And the rest, of course. Rose's messy cleaning hair and sex, finally, god, and naps and a home that isn't blue and bigger on the inside and as sad as that is, it's also lovely, and I'm all about the Doctor and Rose growing another TARDIS and having adventures in Pete's Universe, but this, the opposite side of the spectrum, has the ability to be seriously, seriously awesome and alluring too, and you did a marvelous job of portraying that with just these 5 little points.

I love the idea of them growing a TARDIS, but in this world, they have the chance to have a home as well. Totally best of both worlds.

Thank you!

Aw. The Doctor Who ones are so sweet. I can definitely imagine him feeling that way, throwing himself into human life the way he throws himself into everything else. Especially since Rose is there.

Really enjoyed the Crimes Against Humanity glances, too. That universe is totally awesome but it makes my heart hurt to see everyone so broken.

The Lex Luthor ones made me giggle. Especially the 'John Sheppard' one. The Gilbert one made me go, "Aw." It's so wistful and it says so much while being so short. They all do.

kasjdfkl;ajd Crimes Against Humanity. YAY.

Speaking of, I have totally convinced myself that CAH John let himself be captured on purpose in order to get Rodney and take over Atlantis. If I'm wrong, pls don't tell me, because the thought makes me stupidly happy.

Thank you!

CAH is sociopathic love. *nods*

3. Gilbert Blythe

(He's always wanted to know how Gilbert made Anne love him.)

Oh Lex, you ginormous sap.

Seriously - all of these are great, but the one I quoted made my heart hurt, just a little, for that Lex who clearly read not just Anne of Gree Gables, but the entire freaking series.

er, that would be Anne of *Green* Gables, obviously. Silly fingers!

He totally read straight through to Rilla of Ingleside.

1. The thousand ways a single sun can rise.

Wow... that really hit me. He's seen the sun rise on a thousand different planets, in a thousand different solar systems but never the same sun twice.

There is something unbelievably sad about that.

I wonder if he thinks of it as living quantumly. *g* In the little things.

So I've just mainlined all of Crimes Against Humanity and I wanted to thank you for posting as much as you did. I know it's very unlikely that there will be more after so long, but there was so much that it felt satisfying as a story all the same (all kinds of wrong, of course, and yet still).

This little bit was, from that point of view, a very fitting way to end.
