The Gradual Coming Out of John Sheppard, 1/5, John/Rodney, G
Author: darkhavens
Title: The Gradual Coming Out of John Sheppard, #1 - At the Park
Fandom: Pairing: Stargate Atlantis: John Sheppard/Rodney McKay
Rating: G
Words: 100
Concrit: Please. If you spot a typo, please feel free to tell me in comments.
Notes: Written for stagesoflove, prompt set #4 - Five public places (park, beach, movie theater, pool, carnival)

At the Park

A full year after 10 U.S.C. §654 had finally been killed, John still had trouble believing he could kiss another man in public without destroying his career.

Rodney seemed content with nothing more overt than bumping elbows as they walked, talked, ate and sat together, but John wanted to give him more, knew he deserved more, for sticking by him and struggling to remain discreet all these years.

They were at the park watching Madison, Jacob and little Austin when John finally screwed his courage to the sticking place and leaned in for a feather-light kiss.

Rodney's smile was incandescent.


#2 - At the Beach

Thank you! *hugs*

He's looking rather incandescent in your icon too. *g*

Thanks! I love, love, love this icon of Rodney. I think he's absolutely beautiful. *beams* It's by oxoniensis, and it is shareable with credit.

Actually, I really like the icon you posted with, too. :) I was going to say in my first comment, but I posted too quickly.

Thanks! It was made especially for me by literati. She's my go-to icon goddess. I have her on retainer. *g*

Ooohhh...lucky you! *is jealous* I have several of her BtVS icons, and she does beautiful work. *nods*

Re: The Gradual Coming Out of John Sheppard, #1 - At the Park
Well, sometime in the next however long it takes me to nag her into it while, there will be at least one new multi-fandom icon post from her.

But I can't nag too hard. She did just gift me with a brand new shiny layout for [Bad username: bloodclaim"], including the header and matching icon. :D

Re: The Gradual Coming Out of John Sheppard, #1 - At the Park
Oh. My. God! It's gorgeous! (I had to go run and look.) The header is absolutely stunning, and the icon is *love*. *beams* What a sweetie. :D

It must be really new - I know it wasn't there last time I was at BC. Huh. I love it. :D

I decided that I'd post with one of her icons, too, in her honor. Hee! It's a fave of mine. :D

Re: The Gradual Coming Out of John Sheppard, #1 - At the Park
The layout is a couple of weeks old at the most. We spent ages tweaking it in a test comm first, and then tidied up loose ends once it was in place and we got fb on it.

It took ages to find a layout that would let us put the counter up at the top, but there was no way I was losing him - not this close to the magic million. :D

(another literati icon. My icon page is about 90% literati, most of them made espeically for me. *preens*)

Aww, Rodney deserved his reward! And so did John. Just edible.
darkhavens: rodney oh please! [literati]darkhavens on June 24th, 2008 08:45 pm (UTC)
Thank you!

I love Rodney's 'over-excited six year old' grin. He really does light up. :D

I like this a lot -- the small bits that show so much.

A tiny issue: sticking post -- is this what you want? The Shakespeare quote is "to the sticking place" and the idiom is usually "sticking point".

*headdesk*

Yes, I was going for the Shakespeare quote. I'm not entirely certain how I managed to near, and yet so far, from what it whould be. Thanks! *runs to edit*
