    Summary

    Danny Williams is one of the ten percent of Earth's population who have special, superhuman abilities known as Gifts.

    Danny would say the better term is curse, especially when he gets kidnapped by criminals who expect him to do the impossible.

    Now he's got two choices: comply, possibly destroy the world, and die in terrible pain; or refuse...and die in terrible pain. How is this his life?

    And what do a bunch of impatient, angry Russians want with a big, green cylinder anyway?

    Summary

    There are some people you never forget, even when you can't remember anything.

    (Rodney couldn't lose him. If something happened to John, Rodney didn't think he could keep holding on. Not with the chair slowly taking him apart and no one to keep himself together for.

    He had no real idea who John was, but it was like Rodney knew him in ways that went deeper than memory. John was vitally important, as necessary to Rodney's existence as the stale air circulating through the ship or the awful protein chunks they ate to survive. It wasn't even a question of being able to hold on without him. Without him, Rodney wouldn't want to.

    But even beyond his new injuries, John was slipping away so fast. Rodney didn't know how many more times he could be forced into the chair before he wouldn't remember his own name. And Rodney was losing too much to be able to remind him.)

    Summary

    Tony takes a breath. "Remember last year, when Sam and I found Bucky trashing that bank vault where Hydra'd been keeping him?"

    Pepper nods. "You called it the 'Vault of Evil'. Oh my God, did they try to capture him?"

    "No, but it's almost as bad." Tony grimaces. "I'm not explaining this right. You remember why we took him to Asgard? I mean, of course you would, it was your idea. But, how he had, like, four different people running around in his head?"

    "Of course I do. But, they fixed him." Pepper's eyes go wide at the misery in his expression. "It's been over a year…I thought they fixed him?"

    "They did fix him," Tony says. "He got broken again."

    Summary

    The first time John had laughed in God, what? A month? Had been when the scientist from the alternate universe insulted someone John couldn't see.

    John hated how pathetic it sounded even in his own head, but he hadn't been lying about the conversation. It'd been... cool, to meet someone new, who obviously wasn't a threat. Someone who didn't have the same pinched look of desperation that everyone on Atlantis did. John had no idea if the stupid rock was going to prove useful for anything other than Skyping with one guy from another dimension, but John was honest enough to admit he didn't care. It was the one good thing he had to look forward to.

    Summary

    Rodney looked confused, then angry. "It’s not a cage," he said, like she’d insulted him. "It’s a habitat. There’ll be a pond--fresh water, of course!--and trees, and--"

    "John had very specific wishes about what should happen to him if he couldn’t be cured, Rodney," Elizabeth said.

    Summary

    John thought Rodney would close his eyes or at least take a deep breath or something, but there was nothing like that. It was just Rodney: bare-chested and huffy and annoyed like always, and then…a giant cat sitting on his haunches wearing dark grey pants.

    Summary

    It was just mud, after all. And after the opportunistic parasite that nearly killed Rodney, Carson was very, very careful about making sure no one was sick before letting them go on missions. So everyone on Team Sheppard was healthy. And it was just mud. Just like Ronon said when Teyla was grimacing about her hair: a little mud never killed anyone.

    Summary

    “Okay,” John said, his eyes moving from the salt to Dave’s happy eating. “There’s something really wrong with you and Carson’s just too afraid to tell us, right?”

    “Nope.” Dave grinned again around a mouthful of cake. “It’s neat. Y’all know how I’ve been kinda cranky lately?”

    “If you call trying to spork my eyes out for eating the last peanut-butter Power Bar ‘cranky’,” Rodney said acerbically, “then, yes. We’ve noticed.”

    Summary

    “Look,” O’Neill said, cutting her off, “I understand your concerns here, I really do. But Dixon is a great guy, honestly. He’s saved the world at least twice, and his teams love him, and he’s gotta be the most loyal, forthright, stand-up kind of guy--"

    “He’s insane,” Weir said flatly.

    Summary

    “And I knew I couldn’t do anything to save you, I swore to myself that if you just…” Rodney gritted his teeth, but John was looking at him now and it was too late not to tell him. “If you just came back, I would give--I would do anything. Everything. Whatever you wanted. Even if, even if you could never reciprocate. It just, it didn’t matter. It doesn’t.”

    Summary

    This was wrong. This was stupid and he was going to regret this and John was going to leave again and it would be that much worse if they did this. But they were all doomed anyway and so they were going to, because John wanted it, and Rodney wanted John so badly and this was it, this was all they'd ever have.

    Summary

    "Tell you what?" he hissed, keeping his voice quiet. "What do you want me to tell you, Rodney? That it meant anything?" Oh yeah, this was good. This would work. John didn't even have to go out of his way for the anger. He just had to let it loose a little, shape it to this new mask he had to wear. The best lies were always the ones with some kind of truth in them. The anger was true.

    It was just all directed at himself.

    Summary

    Rodney dropped to his knees as soon as he was inside the shelter again. God, he just wanted to curl up into a little ball in the corner and quietly freak out. He was a scientist, not an action hero. John should be the one shooting demon cats and worrying about how the hell they were ever going to get out of this. Not the other way around.

    Summary

    Rodney was not an optimistic person by nature, but he couldn't do this. He couldn't sit there in John's quarters and imagine John never being there again, never being on Atlantis, anywhere, ever again. It was like his mind wouldn't even accept the possibility.

    Summary

    "Is that so?" John said, deadpan. "Well..." He drawled, pretending to consider it. "How about you come inside, then? Have a nice cup of Athosian moonshine, maybe a candy bar, do a little dancing..."

    "What?" Rodney snorted. "With you?"

    Summary

    "Don't patronize me," Rodney spat. "I know what I did up there. I freaked out. I froze. I could have cost us our lives." He rubbed his palm over his face, a quick, angry movement. His voice dropped, so that John had to strain to hear him. "That's twice."
