Here's the free for all.

As ever, the rules are:

*No more than five prompts in a row.
*No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
*No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing. Use a spoiler cut as needed.
*If you know the character's full name, use it. Also, give the fandom's complete name, too.
*If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space.

There's also a new rule now: if something in the fill could be a trigger, please have a note to warn for it.

Have fun!

Not a fill, yet, but I'm going to NASA this so hard when I get home from work.

Fill. Stargate: Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. NASA.
It was no shock when Sheppard asked Rodney out on a date over the comms. Seriously, no shock whatsoever, a complete and total lack of shock and shock like emotions: Mission Control had been listening to the pair flirt—

“The Senior Flight Director does not flirt!”

“Yes, yes, you are paragon of virtue.”

“Get out of my office.”

—for the entirety of two ATLANTIS missions.

NASA TV's ratings had never been higher.

(“Hey, could you two take a camera on the date?” Chuck asked.

Rodney glared and brandished his coffee cup.)

And after years of working with the bastard their boss, no one was surprised either when Rodney rejected the offer out of hand and went on with the landing protocols. They still had half an hour before the JUMPER landed, which was 30 minutes of possible catastrophes, and well, Rodney wouldn't be McKay if he didn't devote the entirety of his attention to that, not the fact that a couple million people on Earth just heard him rejecting the Most Famous And Beloved Hero of Recent Years.

Just because he'd saved the crew after an explosive decompression incident and then managed to duct tape the giant hole in ATLANTIS' side—screw you, meteor storm—with sheeting and prayers. The fact that he wasn't even the Mission Engineer had contributed fully to the adoration he continued to experience.

“JUMPER to Houston. Flight, I'll pick you up at 1600 the day after they release us from rehab.”

“Houston to JUMPER. Sheppard, focus on your AOA and cut the chatter.”

“JUMPER to Houston, yes, sir. I love it when you give me orders. It makes me tingly.”

Someone had snickered to Rodney's left, a headache had bloomed, and by the time he got home to collapse, even Sam was giving him a wide berth. Said cat would later become a traitor when John kept his word and showed up in Rodney's living room ten days after returning to Earth for the mission break.

Purring away in John's lap, Sam almost seemed to be saying, You want to hit this.

“Sheppard, go away.”

“Sure. You wanna change before we go out?”

“You. Alone. Go away.”

“Aw, Rodney.”

Jesus, Sheppard was pouting. Rodney could feel his resolve crumbling under that gaze: he'd driven grown men and women to tears with the power of his stubbornness, but this one was going to crumple him with puppy dog eyes.

“Fuck,” he muttered, “Fine. Fine, we'll go on one date. One fraternizing, unprofessional date.”

“I don't normally give my dates descriptors until after I've had it.”

“You want to go out tonight or not?”

“Oh, I do.” John smiled beatifically. “Wear jeans.”

Rodney caved.

Which, fuck him, he was both glad and intensely pissed off that he had.

“Ready for another go, Flight Director?” Markham yelled from the cockpit.

“Kill me now!”

“That's a yes!”

“You are an evil, evil man.”

The plane started the ascent of the parabola, nose high and the giddiness rose in Rodney's belly as they approached the moment of nose low. Euphoria rose as those in the cabin lost contact with the bulkhead floor, floating for precious seconds. Even his nausea couldn't take away the feelings running through his veins, a mixture of bliss, longing, and affection.

Sheppard laughed as he pushed off and spun toward him, spinning when he caught Rodney's arms.

The next time Markham asked if he wanted another run, Rodney told him, “Yes! Go!” and held onto John until they were in mid-air, his lips so perfectly in front of his.

(Their first kiss, they learned when they showed up to JSC the next morning, had been broadcast around the world from the Vomit Comet's cabin-mounted broadcast camera.

Chuck greeted them for every mission briefing wearing an SAS helmet thereafter.)

OMG, I love this! LOL! It's so funny! Love Rodney and John's very public relationship, and that Rodney turned John down at first. But really, who can resist that face? ::grins::

And then their first date and their first kiss is on the Vomit Comet! So awesome! ::claps hands::

Thank you so much for this!

Thank you for the prompt! All day at work, I had John and Rodney kissing on the VC in my head and I just couldn't let it go.

That was perfect. Super hilarious. Rodney's stubbornness and John's persistence and a zero-G kiss. Awesome.
