We're done for another year, folks :) And as always, we had one helluva superstar group and a bounty of gifts. Thank you Santas for all the joy you bring every season! You guys are amazing. And thank you doubly to those who pulled double-duty!
Now, go forth and enjoy the goodies if you haven't done so yet. Please remember to give thanks and kudos and cookies to our lovely authors--especially if they're your secret santa!
And here's to lots of love, laughter, and happiness in the new year for us all! ♥
Title: Last Minute Decorations Author: squidgiepdx Recipient: wdf_puppet Pairing: John Sheppard/Rodney McKay Rating: PG Word Count: 2,472 Warnings: None Summary: Rodney McKay was a busy man. As the head of Pegasus Dynamics, a small aerospace consulting company, he had meetings to hold, employees to manage, and because Pegasus was behind in their latest project proposal, he also had actual work to do. Not enough to challenge his dual PhDs, but busywork nonetheless. So it was beyond his comprehension as to why he was charged with getting a Christmas tree for the office.
Summary: An off-world mission gone awry gives Ronon the opportunity to reveal a hidden talent, while forcing Teyla to come to terms with an ability better left in the dark.
Merry Christmas, PuddleJ! I loved your idea of letting Ronon and Teyla shine and reveal some of their little-used talents, and ran with that. I did play a bit fast and loose with the actual canon, but it's still there if you squint. I hope you like it! <3
