Looking for McShep fic

Okay, I'm looking for a McShep fic - it might have been just an excerpt of an unfinished story, but I'm not sure. In it, John and Rodney had basically walked away from the SGC after they were screwed over somehow. Possibly because they're in a relationship together and get found out. John is on good terms with his father, so he's able to support them both.

At some later point, the SGC begs them to come back and promises all sorts of things to them because the Atlantis expedition is a mess being led by Weir and Sumner and they need them to fix the situation. I think the scientists were threatening to revolt and sending coded requests for help in databursts back to the SGC, and that Weir had declared Atlantis an independent entity. I don't remember much else except for the scene where they beam down from the Daedalus, and Sumner and his supporters are warned not to resist at all or they'll be beamed into space. And possibly declared as deserters - not sure on that part. John and Rodney take over as joint leaders of the expedition and I believe the scientists on Atlantis were all greatly relieved.

Not much to go on, I know, but I hope it's enough to spark someone's memory because I'd really love to read it again. Thanks in advance!

2182 / Orphan Black, 5.07

The Thor: Ragnarok trailer looks just delightful:



Who knew I'd end up anticipating the third Thor movie over the next Avengers one? But Infinity Wars looks like it will be over-stuffed and unsatisfying on a character level, whereas this looks like quirky fun.

Orphan Black, 5.07, Gag or Throttle )

Being a zombie is ... exhausting.

It's not even 9:30 and I know I'm headed off to bed (as soon as I've taken my pills, washed my face, and done my eyedrops). Whoa, blondie. How come you're a zombie?

Well, it doesn't make much sense to me considering that the morning part of Sunday was normal: wake up at 5:45, leave home around 8:45, do church, get picked up.... BZZZZZZRT. Scratch that. Do NOT get picked up by the promised cab (and learn that the cabbie has declared you weren't there which is enough to make me start screaming). Have the rides provider promise to send another cab which luckily arrives in a few minutes. So I end up getting home around 1:50, already worn out.

I ignored lunch so I could concentrate on my service summary. I'm finally done before 3:30 and do I eat lunch then? Why, of course not. I have to go feed the cats (after coaxing Grumpy off the back deck with loving words and cute hand claps). ::puts hands on hips:: Hey, there were SO cute hand claps. Only then did I return to my cool, dark refuge ... and have a couple of fruit tarts. Not quite lunch or nutritious, but I just didn't feel like anything else.

When SuM got home, I was relieved she bought me a bottle of Aleve (though what she paid for it at the drugstore was ridiculous when compared to Costco's price). But I was desperate and didn't want my old joints to be screaming in a couple of days.

Anyway, off to do my pre-bed routine. Silly nighty-night, all.

I just read Roxane Gay’s Hunger and it resonated with me very deeply.

Discussion of sexual assault, suicidal ideation, and body image under the cut. Please read (or don't!) with your own self-care in mind.

Just read a lovely column called [Your Three Feet of Influence]. The author suggests that while we cannot control the world, we can choose what we do with the three feet directly around us, and whether we bring to that three feet justice, calm, and kindness or not. Great reading for this Sunday!

My nieces (4, 10) have been watching The Great British Baking Show, and decided that yesterday afternoon should be all baking, all the time. So I went over and helped out, and we made the FUSSIEST BAKED GOODS IMAGINABLE. First came the Banana Bread from America's Test Kitchen. What a pain in the ass that recipe is. And yet it made the best banana bread I have ever tasted, so I can do little but shake my fist and do what they say.

Then we made Blackberry Scones, which had the best-tasting scone mix imaginable, and which took forever to make. I think I'd like them better with blueberries or raspberries, but they're very tasty (no doubt from all the butter). Again, very fussy recipe, but the end product felt worth it.

At the end of the afternoon, niece C made brownies out of a box, and lo, we were glad for it :D

Woke up this morning stiff in every place imaginable, so I'll need to do a bit of gentle yoga to loosen back up after I finish this cup of tea. I feel like Andy in Parks and Recreation - working out is great and all but at what cost? :D

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have ONE volunteer reccer who signed up for August with this fandom:

* Steven Universe ([personal profile] juniperphoenix)

So while we already have a few recs to look forward to in August, it would of course be awesome if we had some more recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far NO reccer has volunteered for September, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for August, September or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of July. Since the general prompts don't seem to work as inspiration, I've decided to stop adding them, but to keep the open reccing period in case anyone wants to slip a rec in, without having to come up with three others for a fandom. However the recs do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Peter Quill, Yondu Udonta
Content Notes/Warnings: some blood

Why this piece is awesome: Most of the pre-canon art about Peter and Yondu focuses on a really young Peter, so I like this one because Peter is in his mid-to-late teens. I love how this piece tells a whole story in one image, and the details are fantastic.

Why this piece is awesome: It's a marvellous strong portrait of Diana on the horse, from near the end of the movie, wrapped in a fur-trimmed cloak and looking every inch the warrior princess. Also I love the colours.

Wynonna Earp 2x07

As everybody reading this knows, the most curative thing during recovery is binge-watching a television show. Recall my earlier brief notes on iZombie Season Three? One down; four to go: The 100 (still on Netflix, I hope); Orphan Black; Killjoys; and Wynonna Earp.

I looked at the latter two and chose Wynonna Earp. Why? Guess I was feeling Western rather than Westerly, feeling like two sisters as the leads rather than two brothers.

Just three bulletpoints on Wynonna Earp, up to & including 2x07 ''Everybody Knows'' )

Going back in time

Spent evening watching Stargate SG1 and Atlantis. Nostalgia- I'm soaking in it!

Arrgghh. So not a respectable time to wake up. But, as I couldn't breathe, I stayed up and grabbed the iPad. Good thing I have a Trek story to slog through. I was surprised to hear SuM wake up and drive off shortly after 7. Huh? Was she going to work or away overnight? I determined by the low level of cat food in the container that it must be work.

Lethargy finally caught up with me around 1:15. I dragged myself back to bed for a two-hour nap. Oh, that felt good. Even though I'd watched our new pastor via my computer yesterday, I ended up watching the entire recorded newscast. It felt weird to watch another station as I'm so used to the on-air personalities of my regular station. The unintentionally hilarious thing is that his interview was shown immediately before a report of a mega-thousands convention of Jehovah's Witnesses here in TO. ::rolls eyes::

I ended up taking another inadvertent nap after watching my game shows, but only for a titch past an hour. I'll still keep my fingers crossed that I get decent sleep tonight. And, speaking of fingers, I just took the sparkly polish off and I'm going to give my hands a paraffin bath before sleep. Aaaaaaaaah.
