Fandoms: Criminal Minds/Stargate SG-1
Pairings: None
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 8000

Author's Note: I've mismatched the two shows timewise--the relevant seasons didn't actually happen at the same time in real world time, such as it is. It shouldn't make a difference for the plot, but if it bothers you, I'm sorry. Written for the 2010 edition of [livejournal.com profile] xover_exchange. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] colls for beta reading!

Fandom: SGA/SG-1
Pairings: None
Prompt: Carter, Mitchell, Sheppard, "what regulations?"
Summary: Sheppard and Mitchell plot to help their families.
Notes: Originally written for the [livejournal.com profile] lostcityfound 2008 Fic Battle for the prompt "what regulations?"


"You're insane!" said Cam

Sheppard smirked at him from across the table, and behind the smirk Cam could just detect the edge of desperation.

"We'll never get away with it," Cam insisted, resistance beginning to fade under the weight of his own desperation.

"Won't know unless we try," drawled Sheppard, still grinning wildly, and after a long moment, Cam nodded.

It had all begun, Cam decided, in the cafeteria. Some people might have traced the genesis back earlier, to the moment when a handful of cells had failed to stop dividing when they should have and thrown everything out of whack, but Cam preferred to trace it back to the moment when he saw John Sheppard in the cafeteria, looking worn and tired and out-of-place, and invited him for a drink.

They'd struck up a casual sort of friendship during the six weeks the Asurans had occupied Atlantis: a few drinks here, a game of basketball there, some bonding over what it meant to have the responsibility for a whole world resting on your shoulders. It was enough that, once they were settled in the bar with drinks in hand, and the handful of people who had stared when they had come in had turned back to their own drinks, he felt comfortable asking Sheppard what he was doing on Earth. Sheppard had taken a long swallow of beer, and for a moment Cam thought he had overstepped the bounds of their friendship. But then Sheppard had set his glass down and looked across the table at Cam and told him, in a deceptively off-hand way, about his three-year-old nephew, who had been recently diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. And Cam had nodded in sympathy and understanding, and told his own story of his cousin--closer to a sister, really--who was suffering from late-stage ovarian cancer, and who was trying to figure out how to say goodbye to her two children. They toasted their families, and turned to discussing the many downsides of being public celebrities.

The issue of the Ilusians didn't come up until three drinks later. By then, they were both well under the influence of Tabby's truly excellent single malt (having decided that beer wasn't sufficient under the circumstances), and the idea of completely disregarding regulations and possibly ending their own careers seemed less...dangerous than it might have under more sober circumstances.

skieswideopen: The Odyssey floating over Earth (SG: Odyssey)
Title: Enthusiasm Can Get You Killed
Author: [livejournal.com profile] skieswideopen
Fandom: SGA
Prompt: Sheppard, "When I ruled the world"
Pairings: None
Summary: There are some advantages to having the ATA gene in the Pegasus Galaxy, particularly when dealing with people whose knowledge of history is a bit confused.
Notes: A more cheerful variant on the same prompt used in "And My Kingdom Bounded by Stones"--the other side of the ATA gene coin, if you will. Or one of the other sides. Originally written for the [livejournal.com profile] lostcityfound 2008 Fic Battle for the prompt "When I ruled the world."

"When I ruled the world," said John, gesturing expansively, "we had buildings that touched the sky. Markets that offered the best goods from six galaxies. Transporters that could take you anywhere just by thinking about it." John stole a mid-spiel glance at the high chancellor, who looked somewhat less impressed than John had hoped, though that may have been because he was focusing most of his attention on trying to breath as he struggled to keep up with John's wide stride. Sweat had soaked through the rich, red robes, which were now nearly matched in colour by the high chancellor's previously pale face. John walked a little faster.

"It was actually several worlds, you know," continued John. "We ruled two galaxies, so we had to run a few planets each. It was a busy time."

"It sounds..." panted the High Chancellor Wali, "magnificent. But Holy One...we must ask...why did you leave?"

"Oh, you know," said John vaguely. "Ascension and all that. If you think it's time consuming ruling several planets, you should try living on the higher planes."

skieswideopen: The Odyssey floating over Earth (SG: Odyssey)
Title: And My Kingdom Bounded by Stones
Author: [livejournal.com profile] skieswideopen
Fandom: SGA
Prompt: Sheppard, "When I ruled the world"
Pairing: None
Summary: John in exile: sometimes there are disadvantages to possessing the ATA gene in the Pegasus Galaxy, and even being king doesn't help.
Notes: Originally written for the [livejournal.com profile] lostcityfound 2008 Fic Battle for the prompt "When I ruled the world."

"When I ruled the world..." began John. He stopped as a bout of coughing wracked his body.

"Hush, Dad," said Beth gently, adjusting his pillows. "You need to rest."

"Things were different," insisted John. "When I was in charge...."

"I know, Dad, I know. I'll get you some tea, okay?" She went to the door and rang for a servant. John looked at the two small children who sat beside his bed, looking back at him with identical solemn gazes.

"When I ruled the world,” he said again, “we fought the Wraith; we didn't hide from them. We went between planets and traded with others, and when the Wraith came, we sent up waves of drones until the sky was lit with the explosions of their ships."

"Papa says that’s a foolish risk," said the older girl. "Too many people die when we fight. Now that we’ve destroyed all the Wraith who know where we are, we should stay quiet so that no one else finds out we’re here.”

"Hiding," said John bitterly, "and letting other people fight for us." He began coughing again.
