6 Works in Cole (Stargate Atlantis)
24 Aug 2019
Bloodfires: Humans gifted with abilities beyond normal humans. Once hunted as monsters and now irreplaceable in military, intelligence, law enforcement, rescue and medical services, Bloodfires are always treading a fine line between acceptance and mistrust.
One year ago, the Atlantis Expedition left for the Pegasus Galaxy and had not been heard of since. Family issues kept Dr. McKay on Earth, but now he's joining the Second Expedition led by Col. John Sheppard, even if he must hack the gate to do so.
But when they step through the gate, what they find is a totally deserted city.

“This is ridiculous,” Rodney scowled, “My uniform cannot possibly make that big of a difference.”
“Don’t you want to help, Dr. McKay?” D blinked up at him innocently.
“Don’t do that,” Rodney pointed a finger at her, “It’s not going to work this time.”
“You want to make sure Elizabeth keeps her position as leader of the Atlantis expedition,” John looked at Rodney with wide eyes and a pouty lower lip, “Don’t you, Rodney?”
“Grown men should not be making puppy dog eyes,” Rodney shook his finger at John.
“It's fine,” Elizabeth said calmly, “It’s not like the IOA would try to replace me with someone who would be more concerned about following regulations than-”
“All right!” Rodney threw his hands up, “I’ll go change my uniform, even though there is nothing wrong with this one. Then I’m going back to my lab to get some real work done.”
“And you’ll show up on time for your interview with Mr. Woolsey,” Elizabeth smiled.
“And I will show up on time for my interview,” Rodney agreed.
"And you won’t insult Woolsey’s intelligence,” John added.
“And I won’t insult Woolsey’s intelligence,” Rodney grumbled, “Out-loud.”
Foreign language format updated.

Lorne and Parrish find themselves in an unusual situation off-world.
“I’m just saying,” Rodney grumbled, “It’s weird that someone whose employment history is an alphabet soup of every American intelligence agency is fetching food and organizing supplies. Even if General O’Neill really wanted her involved in the Stargate program that badly, why would he assign her as Elizabeth’s assistant rather than something more suited to her background?”
“What do you mean?” John questioned.
“Not our business,” Ronon paused in his eating to slide the blue jello over to Rodney, “Here.”
“Wait, really?” Rodney brightened, “You almost stabbed me over this two minutes ago and now you’re giving it to me?”
“If you don’t want it…” Ronon reached for the bowl.
“No, no, no,” Rodney snatched the jello up and dug his spoon in immediately, “I want it.”
Ronon smirked and picked up the bowl of stew to drain the last of its contents.
“Are you just giving me the jello so I’ll shut up?” Rodney asked, mouth half full of food.
“Yes,” Ronon set his empty bowl down.
“That won’t always work, you know,” Rodney waved his spoonful of jello at the taller man.
“Hasn’t even worked this time,” John drawled.
- Part 1 of Angel 'Verse
Atlantis lost the fight against the replicators, and Earth gave up on the city... and her crew. Two of the survivors are Laura Cadman and Evan Lorne.
Parrish and Lorne come to an unspoken understanding, which works fine for a while. Then Evan is injured on a mission.
