by dossier

 

theseus paradox

 

Fandom: Stargate Atlantis (AU-No Stargate)

Category/Rated: Slash, Adult

Year/Length: 2010/ ~95,00 words (eventually)

Pairing: McKay/Sheppard, Sheppard/Ronon, mentions of McKay/Carter, McKay/Other, Lorne/Brown

Spoilers: None

Disclaimer: Caveat emptor, I am not a doctor, lawyer, pychologist or police officer (I don't even play one on TV), and this is science fiction. Not mine, no profit. The characters herein are returned to their rightful owner only slightly dented.

Warning: Language, violence, drugs, alcoholism, rape, torture, discussions of racial purity, minor character death, gratuitous crying and kid-fic. It sort of runs the gamut, and is not recommended for more sensitive readers.

Summary: Auguste Rodin observed, "The human body is first and foremost a mirror to the soul and its greatest beauty comes from that." Otherwise, a futuristic AU, wherein Detective Sheppard struggles to solve a terrible crime, and with his life and identity. AU, I said that, right?

Series: A Day On The Atalanta, A snapshot of John and Rodney's past.

Author's Notes: Detective Sheppard was mine first. I've been working on this for a while—since before Lorne had a first name.

Beta: Auburn, tzzzz, seekergeek and bluflamingo provided insight, suggestions and comma patrol. army_rat was my research assistant and sounding board for disaster. MECurtin also offered some paradigm shifting thoughts, and without them this story would be in a much sorrier state and I am grateful for their assistance but as quite a lot was re-written afterwards, I remain the target for all rotten tomatoes. I fully expect them.
