So I was having one of those conversations you have with fannish friends. You know. [ 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.

...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.

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.)

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!

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."
