Friday: AU

Hello, everyone. I’m tigriswolf and today's theme is AU. Prompts can be canon divergent AU, fusion AU, total AU. Whatever you want.

Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the spoiler cut.
If there are possible triggers in your story, please warn for them in the subject line!

Prompts should be formatted as follows: [Use the character's full names and fandom's full name]
Fandom, Character +/ Character, Prompt



We use AO3 to bookmark filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and post it to AO3 please add it to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2017 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 1 (not very current), Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 2, or the Calendar Archives, or for more recent prompts, you can use LJ's advanced search options to find prompts to request and/or fill.

While the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheets and LJ's advanced search options are available, bookmarking the links of prompts you like might work better for searching for in the future.

I have no idea what AU this might have to do with...

Oh, you know me. Just throwing random thoughts out there. ::winks::

Fill. Stargate Multiverse, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. NASA AU.
Private video conferencing was a service offered to the families of the crew, a way for the astronauts to get a taste of home and stay updated without having to go through the public channels. And it was used often, with even Elizabeth taking advantage to call and tease John now and then.

Rodney hated it: it only served to remind him of the distance between himself and his husband, something that was even more prominent at that moment.

“You look terrible.”

John, pale and clearly feverish, retorted, “Gee, thank you, Rodney. You look fresh as daisy.”

An eye roll and Rodney told him, “I've been awake 49 hours because of you. Elizabeth and I had to meet with the team to discuss recalling you home or holding at your current distance.”

“Recall? I have a cold. It'll pass.”

“That's not Dr. Keller's diagnosis. Try again.”

“Rodney...”

“They're not recalling you. Not for now.” He finally sat down, the sofa squeaking as he settled into the cushion. “Carson argued that the stress of re-entry on a healthy human body is high already, he doesn't want to find out how much worse it would be on a sick one.”

“Good. Give me a few days...” he trailed off, grabbing his chest and letting out a hacking cough. It took a minute or so for John to catch his breath, and he went on, “and I'll be back at the controls.”

“Uh huh.”

“Seriously, you know me. I'll burn through this virus.”

Rodney frowned at him. “No, not this time. No pushing to get back to work when you should be resting.”

John sighed.

That ruffled feathers and Rodney sternly ordered, “I'm not there to make you slow down, John. I'm not up there to make sure you have fluids and eat. So you have to do it yourself. Don't you dare try to Han Solo this—you have the rest of your crew to think about.”

“I am thinking about them!”

“So act like it!”

For a second, John was angry, then a little voice at the back of his mind (suspiciously Jeannie like) kicked up and reminded him that this was how Rodney reacted when he was scared. His shoulders slumped and John relented, “I'll take it easy. And you need to do the same.”

“I'm not the one with the 39 degree fever in space.”

“No,” John answered, rubbing his chest again but holding in the coughing fit, “but you're down there worrying and I know it.”

Rodney huffed a breath.

“Hey, a couple of years ago, this situation was reversed.”

“Thanks for that reminder.”

“Sweetheart, go home, feed Sam, walk Galileo, get some sleep.” John reached his other hand to the screen.

It was Rodney's turn to sigh and he leaned forward to lay his hand over John's. “Take a break between this mission and EXPEDITION. Please.”

Desperation was not Rodney's style. Still, John could hear it in his voice and John felt his heart break a little: they'd spent maybe a year together since they'd gotten married and not continuously. Before that it'd been a relationship where Rodney regularly let him go, never asking him to hand off a mission or even suggesting it.

“You've already been named head of the missions. They're not starting up until you and the team are ready as it is.”

“Okay.”

“You're going to be gone for whole years at a... okay?”

John nodded, a sad little smile on his lips. “We'll take a long vacation and I'll go back when we're both ready,” he promised, as the coughing fit finally overtook him.

“Go lay down,” Rodney ordered when it was over, “Good night.”

“Turn on LETTERS when you get home and send me a picture of the furkids.”

“You want proof I'm going to bed.”

“Hell yes.”

“Pain in my ass.”

“That's why you love me.”

Rodney made a face, fond but annoyed, and muttered, “Yes, I do. Now go to bed,” and the screen winked out.

Oh, man. This hit me right in the feels. Poor Rodney, so upset he's actually asking John to keep his feet on solid ground for a while. I don't blame him. It's so hard to be away from someone you love for such a long time.

Pressing their hands to the screens? ::dies::

Thank you so much for this amazing fill. And welcome back!!

So short a time back it was, alas. (This is the semester from hell as it turns out.) But glad you enjoyed it!

I've said it before and I'll say it again: there are so much feels with these two. Almost like they're doomed and yet... not quite. I am torn between two possible paths for them in the future, so we'll see what prompt makes them perk up and tell me.

Oh that was adorable! Poor Rodney, away from John when he's sick. And John - so stoic, no matter what's going on with him. Love this!

Thank you! Glad to hear you liked it--John being stoic seems to be the constant for him in any universe, because, let's face it, John.

Re: Fill. Stargate Multiverse, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. NASA AU.
Oh man, you pack quite a punch. I ache for John and Rodney, separated by distance - especially when one of them is so sick. They're married and have spent so little time together :( Rodney asking for John to take a break so they can spend time together...I'm glad John agreed. One thing I love about this ship is that Rodney respects that John needs to be up there, but John knows when Rodney really wants something.

UGHH AND THEN THEY BOTH TOUCH THE SCREEN. You've killed me with feels.

Thank you! It's the balance between them, something I really enjoyed on the show: they know each other well enough to know when it's time to listen. I'm glad you enjoy it.

You know, and I almost didn't put that in. I wasn't sure if it was too much of a feels-punch, like it'd be out of place, but I'm happy to see everyone felt it was appropriate.

Oh man. Rodney fussing over sick John. Both of them worrying about each other. So sweet. And John agreeing to take a break for Rodney is the best.

It's strange fitting my love for domestic fic into this 'verse, but I'm glad everyone's liked it thus far. :)
