Monday: Sun, Moon and Stars

Hello All, I’m thesmallhobbit your host for this week and today's theme is Sun, Moon and Stars - so any celestial bodies, however you interpret them.

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.
If your prompt or fill contains anything that can be a trigger for the reader, please add a warning for that to give the reader the chance to decide if they want to read or not.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing. Use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the above mentioned spoiler cut.

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

Some examples to get the ball rolling...
+ Sherlock (BBC), Sherlock Holmes/John Watson, full moon
+ Robin Hood (BBC), Guy of Gisborne, looking at the night sky
+ Star Trek, Any/Any, visiting a new planet

We are now using 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 2016 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out the just created Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet. For more recent prompts to write, you can also use LJ’s advanced search options to limit keyword results to only comments in this community.

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

Fill. Stargate: Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. NASA.
They were not drunk.

Just, for the record, very much not drunk.

High on something else, also not possible—NASA Medical was kind of particular about what went into their astronaut's bodies. And Rodney was too much of a self-admitted hypochondriac to do drugs.

No, the pair had been stone-cold sober when they'd walked into the tattoo parlor, well within their right minds when John had presented the guy with a drawing before pushing Rodney into the seat.

“You're still sure about this?”

Rodney hadn't hesitated, nodding back as he pulled his pants down and half-off, baring the spot John had shaved for him that morning. He practically zoned out while the needle worked, John's fingers carding through Rodney's hair while he craned his neck to watch the print rise and color, and when it was all over, Rodney stared at it in the mirror for a solid twenty minutes.

He wished he could do the same now, stare at the tattoo, lose himself in something that was purely John, but he couldn't: Mission Control was a poor place to randomly disrobe, even more so when they were amid the launch countdown.

Instead, Rodney sated himself by pressing a hand into his hip, the ointment covered skin pressing into the soft fabric of his trousers. A spark of pain fed the already strong adrenaline rush, a reminder of the pattern hidden under his clothes.

Up on the screen, GATESHIP's main engines began to spit fire then roared to life.

“We have main engine start.” John's voice echoed through the room, fed there from the LCC. “We have main engine ignition.”

The larger structures of the pad swayed as the shuttle lifted off, booster kicking in for the added thrust, and Rodney took a steadying breath as he heard Jacob Carter give his customary send-off.


John's reply was immediate, “With help from below.”

Rodney let out the breath, looking between his staff, and waited for LCC to transfer control, hand twitching against his thigh.

(“I can't bring you to the stars, but I can bring the stars to you,” John murmured, dropping kisses along the edge of the tattoo; he traced over Rodney's hip, the streak of blue and black and white that now colored his boyfriend's body.

Pegasus Irregular, the galaxy they kept reaching toward.

“If you weren't leaving in two days...” Rodney trailed off.

John didn't need the rest of the sentence though, telling him, “Design it while I'm gone. It'll be my coming home present that way. I'll come out of rehab and get some nice new ink.”

“You'll give Lam a fucking heartattack if you show up with a tattoo that she didn't know you were getting.”

“What's another lecture on tetanus and hepatitis.” John smiled against his side, biting down on the soft curve of his belly. “It'll be worth it.”)

Re: Fill. Stargate: Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. NASA.
Today's theme is just so perfect for NASA 'verse. XD

I couldn't resist. I've had the idea in my head for weeks now of the entire ATLANTIS crew having a joint tattoo and then I thought about where the 'verse is headed and knew Rodney needed one too.

Thank you for the prompt!

Re: Fill. Stargate: Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. NASA.
I am sooo excited for where this 'verse is headed. Have you made a 'verse masterpost or anything?

Re: Fill. Stargate: Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. NASA.
I'm excited where it's heading, too. I also want to write some more "Stories from Mission Control" as I've been mentally calling them and some of the ABYDOS/COMMAND Missions.

I have made a master post, because the OCD demanded it: Foiled by Thermodynamics.

Re: Fill. Stargate: Atlantis, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. NASA.
Yay! Added the Masterpost to memories. Awesome.

I am super excited for all of this series.

*Grins like a loon* Yay! I'm glad you liked it. I've had the tattoo idea in my head for so long, too, I just had to do it.
