So I was having one of those conversations you have with fannish friends. You know. [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings was telling me a story idea, and she said, god, what am I even doing, somebody's gonna stage an intervention any day now. And I, of course, pointed out that this was Stargate: Atlantis, and that you probably couldn't get an intervention for anything less than "the story in which Rodney and John sit in the office all day without talking to each other and just do paperwork," and perhaps not even then.

So, guys, what does it take to get an intervention in SGA? How far do you have to go?

Like, imagine your fannish friend who's been with you for the last three fandoms. You even bailed out of the X-Files at the same time! It has been so wonderful and lovely. But now she's gone a little bit off the rails in this wild and crazy SGA fandom.

THE UNICORN/RAINBOW KIDFIC WAS A CRY FOR HELP

...not really. PS, I am writing Radiohead songfic RIGHT NOW, how did you KNOW?

PPS, there is no intervening in this fandom. we're past the point of no return, dude.

you have dibs on . . . cries for help? can you call dibs on that?

eta: I'm a moron. Amnesiac is a Radiohead album? I am bad at music! so, in conclusion, you win. ;)

Both Kid A AND Amnesiac are Radiohead albums!! You have clearly not spent enough time in the dark with your head in the oven listening to Radiohead and being EMO!!

I feel the lack, believe me! I have OK Computer in a box somewhere, does that count? Also, does it count if I stick my head in an electric oven?

and yet, just above, I have demonstrated my ignorance of radiohead! I shame the nineties.

if you really wanted to callback to songfic, you should've said Sarah McLaughlin or Celine Dion or something. Remember that Spike/Xander fic where Xander was a secret cutter and always lit candles and spread out black silk before cutting his thighs and listening to Sarah McLaughlin's Surfacing? Because I DO.

(we should start a new community like sga_storyfinders, only it should be rememberthe90s_storyfinders or something, so people can be like, what was that x-files fic where Mulder and Scully were kept in an egg for a year and Mulder was forced to rape Scully to impregnate her and they kept hearing windchimes? or like, what was the due South fic where RayK was still getting beaten by his dad at 30-whatever years old and Fraser saves him and then they have healing sex? and then we can all be ruefully amused.)

I was going to say that we already have one, it's called my LJ, but I don't think I've read "A Fish Called Krycek" so I have to back out.

The only thing that would stop me from reading the nineties buddy cop movie fic would be that it is SGA, which I don't read. If it was in one of my fandoms, I would be all over it. (In fact, I think I have been all over it several times already.)

From: [identity profile] veejane.livejournal.com
Is now the time for a flashback to Life from the Ashes? Because I am pretty sure that Rodney has never turned into an ogre nor Ronon into a wizard, and I think that SGA fandom had better get cracking on that toot sweet.

As a bonus, all the women in canon are killed off in chapter 1!

Viruses fall, and all the women who are not Scully die. (I do not think there was ever an explanation as to why she didn't die, except that she is Scully. Although, considering that it's her and 3 billion men on the planet, at least 2.5 billion of whom are inclinationally straight, I don't think she ever has sex again.)

So, the men not being afflicted with the virus, they start changing into various types, presumably to distract them from the fact that every woman they've ever met has died. Some are wizards, some ogres, some vaguely ghosty undead type of creatures, and Our Own Agent Mulder is turned into a rarity, some kind of pheromone-exuding sex-magnet perma-healing wonder. (There is considerable interest in the fact that, every time he has anal sex, afterward he "regains his virginity." I think this was written before the prevalence of Minotaur's sex site.) And then, all the characters (Okay, Krycek and Skinner) start fighting over him!!

It was a very long series of stories, so long I can't remember if I ever got to the end. But... ogres! And wizards! Fighting over a sex-magnet canon character (who weeps)! It's almost as good as the mythical (never read by me) Sentinel story about evil hyperevolved overlord cats who enslave mankind!!

writes an AU where John is turned into a mute mermaid with really sharp teeth, and Rodney is the trusts-no-one-guy who works at the marine lab
I'd read that! But then I have a terrible weakness for mermaid stories, far more so than unicorns.

Write something completely different...

that includes a slash scene where right in the middle of the action Rodney turns into a clown and John becomes a whale....

I...wound up here somehow or other, and you have broken my head with nineties flashbacks. Also, I want to see that mermaid!John AU. Also also, you left out "writes a story where John and Rodney declare their undying selfless love and affection for each other and perhaps there is also naked caressing and/or making out, but they ARE NOT GAY, THEY ARE JUST FRIENDS."
