Gift for wdf_puppet

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

It takes place late in Season 5, after 'The Prodigal' and before 'Enemy at the Gate.'

I went in with three possible plans, but the guys decided to go with a fourth. I had no choice but to follow them. I hope this works for you.

A big, squishy thank you to siennavie for the beta. Any remaining oddities are mine.
