How SG-1 Found Out About Rodney's Tattoo
This was written as comment fic in a yin_again's journal and, as appearances from my muses have been scarcer than hens' teeth, I figured I'd better make that flash of inspiration count. So here it is. :D

Author: darkhavens
Title: How SG-1 Found Out About Rodney's Tattoo
Pairing: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Prompt: #040 - Drink - in my slash_100 Big Damn McShep Table
Rating: PG
Words: 253
Spoilers: Tiny passing mention of events in 3x04.
Feedback/Concrit: darkhavens @ slashverse.com
Disclaimer: Not mine, never will be. No harm, no foul, no money made.
Summary: Rodney spends some time at the SGC and shares a little more than he planned to.
Notes: In answer to the 'Five Things' meme, yin_again wrote several sets, including one entitled 'Five ways SG-1 folk figure out that John's claimed Rodney for himself (whether Rodney knows it or not)'. #3 was a tattoo. A bunny bit.

Although Rodney has developed a tolerance for Russian vodka (the stuff you can actually use as rocket fuel in a pinch), Radek's most potent and unnervingly bluish brew, and can down Athosian ale like it's water and drink his body weight in whisky without passing out or throwing up even once, he has a teeny tiny problem with rum - two shots and he's a very friendly drunk, and he completely loses what few filters he usually has in place between his over-active brain and his equally active mouth.

To be fair, he hadn't meant to flash the tattoo. He was actually trying to show off his arrow scar while telling the heroic tale of 'How we saved Ronon from the hunt - again', but his pants slipped a little bit lower than he meant them to and there it was in all its glory.

Someone noticed, of course. He did try to lie, but Sam was there (and there's a point there where he kinda freaked out because Samantha Carter was looking at his ass!) and she could read enough to be able to figure out that it said 'Property of John Sheppard' in tiny Ancient glyphs in a neat little ring around a colourful Naquadah molecule.

Rodney wakes up the next morning, half on top of John, with absolutely no memory of anything past the second round of 'thank God we're still alive' drinks in Sam's lab, but with an impending sense of doom that he knows better than to ignore.

Ha! That was my 'Five Things' that yin answered! *pets the bunny* Nice!

*feeds the bunny* Prequel?!? C'mon, how did John get that tattoo on Rodney's ass? Was it before or after they started sleeping together? Hrm?

Poor Rodney. He dosen't have enough filters in place to begin with -- he really shouldn't be doing anything to damage them further. ;-)

So true! And I'm sure he'll never touch rum again - until the next time. *g*

Very nice. Funny and sweet and impending doom Yay
darkhavens: shep fly me [literati]darkhavens on September 3rd, 2006 02:52 am (UTC)

I'm sure Rodney could recognise the feeling of impending doom in his sleep, but he usually has at least a clue why. *g*

Wheeee! Yay!

Thankee! :D

Good one! The tatt sounds nice. I wouldn't mind seeing it myself.
darkhavens: rodney good morning john [literati]darkhavens on September 3rd, 2006 02:53 am (UTC)
Thanks! I'd like to see the tat my self - in situ. ;)

Thank you! I think Rodney would be a wonderfully amusing storyteller when drunk. And just imagining the gleeful grin makes me happy.:D

Oh man. I love you. Your fics are so crazy in the best way with the John/Rodney goodness.

Thank you! They inspire the crazy. :D

Very fun, poor Rodney.
darkhavens: rodney mattress [literati]darkhavens on September 3rd, 2006 02:59 am (UTC)
Thank you! Poor Rodney indeed. I'm wondering how long it was after the tattoo that he could sit down properly. *g*

Of course it would be Sam who noticed. Poor Rodney...he really shouldn't drink the whisky. On the other hand, you have to ask what the hell John did so that Rodney wasn't bitching about the needle on his ass during the tattooing...or afterward.
darkhavens: shep intense passion [literati]darkhavens on September 3rd, 2006 03:02 am (UTC)

And that's a very god question - one I may have to answer quite soon. Because to convince Rodney to bend over for something like that John must have offered something very compelling. *g*

Poor Rodney!

But a lovely fic :D
darkhavens: shep glasses [literati]darkhavens on September 3rd, 2006 03:03 am (UTC)

Rodney is going to go mad wondering what he did. *g*

I wanna see it too - right where it's supposed to be. ;)


There may be more - I want to know how John got Rodney to go through with it. *g*

LOL! You so need to tell the story of the getting of the tat. And John's reaction to it becoming public knowledge. *g*

You so need to tell the story of the getting of the tat.

That seems to be the census. And I want to know how John persuaded him to go through with it so... ;)

And John's reaction? Ooh, I hadn't thought of that. *ponders*

Prequel and sequel maybe. :D
