2015 Master List

Before I present the 41 beautiful gifts bestowed this year, let me say a big thank you to everyone who participated, who jumped in with enthusiasm and helped launch another chapter of the secret santa exchange. A special shout out to our pinch hitters for their mad talent and generous spirit. Thank you also for the kind words of support and helpful suggestions sent my way. I'm already thinking toward the end of this year and how to improve this experience for all.

Now, without further delay, here are the stories from this year's exchange! Go read and delight in new fantastic tales ♥ And--if you haven't done so yet--please take a moment to acknowledge and thank your secret santa for their time and effort.

If you notice any errors in the coding below, drop me a note and I'll get it fixed asap.

Evidently, my goal was to be the latest I could be without forcing our lovely mod to holler for a pinch-hitter. :P Hope it's worth the wait!

To Stand Alone for Dorothyoz1939 - PG-13

Title: To Stand Alone
Author: icarusancalion
Recipient: dorothyoz1939 (first of two)
Pairing: John/Peter Grodin Friendship
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~6K
Warnings: none
Author's Notes: Set during Letters From Pegasus and The Siege: Part I, veering slightly from there. Dorothyoz1939, this isn't your story. I mean, it is, but isn't. It's the prequel to your story, the set-up for the world for your story. It's complicated ... uh, see, there was this car accident, and it was totaled, and then I was on crutches, and with work, and grad school, I had these two different prompts for two different SGA Secret Santa authors... and they somehow all combined into one story-? So that's this story. But your Sheppard/Cam is connected to this world, and in the works. (Thank you to Sian for the beta reading. You helped more than you realize.)
Summary: The siege of Atlantis has an unlikely, unassuming hero.

Gift for sa_si_le

Title: Three Days in the Life of Rodney McKay
Author: tepring
Recipient: sa_si_le
Pairing: John/Rodney Friendship
Rating: pg 13
Word Count: ~7500
Warnings: none
Summary: Rodney McKay was an ambitious man, but his ambitions were of the intellectual variety. He could care less about money as long as there were plenty of people around telling him he was the smartest guy in the room. He had that title neatly wrapped up (whenever Carter wasn't around) until a certain John Sheppard sauntered into the Antarctic Base. Complete!

Part 1: The Day McKay Learned Sheppard Was Smart
Part 2: The Day McKay Learned Sheppard Was Brave
Part 3: The Day McKay Thought Maybe Sheppard Might Be His Friend
Part 4: The Day McKay Was Sure

Author's note: I attempted to build a plot, though my Kate muse insisted on following this episode.
Note2: It's weird...my local libraries, bookstores, and videostores all have no copies of any Atlantis eps aside from Rising.

Gift for squidgiepdx

Thank you for being so patient, squidgiepdx. I hope you enjoy this!

Title: Universal Gravitation (Metaphorically Speaking)
Author: danceswithgary
Recipient: squidgiepdx
Pairing: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard, Daniel Jackson/Rodney McKay (past)
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~13000
Disclaimer: SGA characters are not mine, more's the pity. Not a medical professional, I only play one on the internet.
Warnings: Potential consent issues/triggers. I started this as a lighthearted romance but, as I researched physical therapy, I was reminded there were questions of ethical conduct that needed to be addressed when a medical professional becomes involved with a patient, even a former patient. I'm hoping some magical hand-waving will be excused to allow romance a chance.
Author's Notes: Present day "Never a Stargate" AU suggested by http://community.livejournal.com/mcsheplets/202159.html?thread=2176175%23t2176175. See the end for more notes.
Summary: It was all Newton's fault.
