    Summary

    This is the sequel to "Obverse Variations" and if I could figure out how to post it as a chaptered work I would die a happy woman. All three parts of "Coda" are one story. It's about 100K. The usual babbling notes will be at the end of Part Three.

    Oh, you want a summary too? Okay: 

    It's not, really, that they drift apart. More as if they're trying to protect their love for each other by staying away from each other as they have in the past, though then it was in a different way and for different reasons. Jack works long hours, constantly. She wishes sometimes, unworthily, that they'd died together, on one of their missions. Going out together in a bright brief flare of glory. Better that than this constant erosion of what they were and what they meant to be.

     

    Sometimes you have to take the long way around to Happily Ever After.

    Summary

    (The USMC's change in tattoo policy means work in Atlantis.)

    "It's less beauty pageant than prison booking," Lorne said as they strolled through the strictly controlled chaos.

    "They may be reprobates, but they're our reprobates," Sheppard replied, tilting his head to look at one of the shirtless marines. "What is that?"

    Lorne followed his gaze to a forearm that was covered in an impressive network of smaller tattoos that worked together as a whole. "It's what would happen if Hieronymus Bosch had done Where's Waldo," he finally answered. "That must have taken days."

    "And if I hadn't had command of two hundred marines for two years, I'd have wondered how he could have stayed drunk for that long."

    Summary

    The Regal Copper Laurentius accidentally acquires a captain, Tharkay spectates, Temeraire is Not Actually an Orphan, and no one really knows who's leading France. Someone should probably get on that, considering England is at war with the place.
