Love this so much! A single frame of the gif by pinkieranddompie.
Rodney's cat sure went through some changes between season 1 and 2.
I'm not going on a diplomatic mission to another country. I'm going to another planet in another galaxy by means of a device called the Stargate. Millions of years ago there was a race of beings we call the Ancients.

McShep prompt number bazillion and one
When Rodney needs to be transported from McMurdo to the Ancient outpost in Antarctica to work on the chair and try to find Atlantis, Sheppard is the one who flies him. They chat, John asks what Rodney does, Rodney smirks and says “I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you. Or rather, the people I work for would have to kill you, because, you know, you’re Air Force and I’m not, and then they would be very annoyed at me and I actually like my job.”
And John just laughs and says “I just meant, what’s your PhD in, Dr. McKay?” and McKay is like “astrophysics.”
“Really?” It’s John’s turn to raise an eyebrow. “What’s an astrophysicist doing working for the Air Force in Antarctica?”
Rodney looks supremely smug. “I already told you, Major. If I said anything I’d have to kill you. Which would be a shame, because you’re the only pilot I can stand.”
And then Carson accidentally launches that drone and it’s Sheppard and Rodney in that helicopter, Rodney explaining to John that it’s a drone and it’s heat-seeking and he needs to land and turn off the engine, and Rodney shouting at him to get out once they land
(John is secretly impressed that the irascible physicist can apparently handle himself in the heat of the moment)
And then John sees the drone that nearly killed them, which definitely looks alien, and raises an eyebrow, and Rodney looks supremely smug when he says “I told you. Top secret. If I told you I’d have to kill you.”
“Well,” John says, equally smug. “Looks like the cat is out of the bag.”
Rodney snorts. “That’s just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.”
And then John gets to go inside and sits down on the chair and it lights up and Rodney says “Major, think about where we are in the solar system” and it all goes from there

in poisoning the well there’s this moment where john, carson, rodney and teyla are together and john compares carson to dr mccoy, as in, bones from tos star trek, and this combined with the several times in sga canon that john is compared to kirk kind of implies that in this trio of men rodney would then be spock. which is amazing, because rodney is, uh, not spock.
i do however think that, if it does not exist yet, there is an excellent crack fic to be had here in which rodney goes “it has to do with biology” and john’s like “what?” and we get “biology.” / “what kind of biology?” / “canadian biology.” / “you mean the biology of canadians?” and then they have to take rodney back to his native lands (canada) so he can work through his pon-farr-but-make-it-a-canadian-pun-somehow. jeannie is t’pau. the role of t’pring can go to the neighbor that rodney left his cat with, who has decided she’s happy with just the cat (which she renamed stonn) and doesn’t really want rodney anymore. rodney and john roll around in the red maple leaves for a bit, there’s an iconic rip in john’s shirt, rodney thinks he killed john (you can tell this is a very realistic sga episode plot because it involves john almost dying) but then it turns out he didn’t, etc etc, you know how this works. it’s not at all strange to see rodney show open emotion, so we need to adjust his response to the reveal that john is still alive a little, by which i mean he probably just, like, needs to kiss john right on the mouth to achieve an equal level of significance. all’s well that ends well, roll credits.
Does my mind like to already entertain itself with the new idea? Yeah, it does. So here we are @flashfictionfridayofficial with a new test scene for my WIP "Tricky Love" Tagging @mantabanter @incandescent-creativity as well.
I still wondered why I had actually gotten involved in this date. I hated online dating! If it wasn't for Rodney's stupid comment, I probably wouldn't even have gone. So, I actually had to strangle him for it. On the way to Rose's, I must have raided three restaurants and a supermarket, so I was standing at her door laden as if I had done a week's shopping. Knocking was only possible with my foot, but who cared. Besides, I should tell her that the front door was open, which was a security risk. "Audrey? Don't you have a date?" Rose stood in front of me in PJ pants and tank top, hair messily pinned up, staring at me like I was crazy. "It's dead. I quote: "You're a little too femme for me, and I don't do anything with bisexuals on principle." "Huh?" Absolute disbelief appeared on Rose's face, as if she were a toon. I'm sure it was the mojito talking, but I found it strangely appealing. I just rolled my eyes and raised my arms. "Don't say anything. Sushi? Gambas al oili? Aioli and bread? Ready-mixed Strawberry Daiquiri?" She started laughing and stepped aside, so I could enter. "You looted all the stores on the way to my place, didn't you?" "No, Indian didn't fit the bill," I joked, falling onto her sofa. I ignored Marie Curie's disgruntled meow. I gave the cat five minutes, then she was back in my lap anyway. "All right, date with Gold Star Lesbian wasn't the bomb. Why did she agree to this? I mean, you have it in your profile that you are bi, don't you?" "Of course! Just to weed out such people from the start. Clear case of profile not read. Can I use that as my villain origin story?" Laughing, Rose waved it off and went to get glasses. "It would take more than that, I'm afraid." "You don't have any either!", I threw back. Still, it was weird knowing she was considered a villain, but let's face it, anyone who isn't government compliant is considered evil these days. "That's different." "Why?" Pouting, I sat there and unwrapped the food. Only when my hand caught something cold did I remember the ice cream. "Oh shit!" With the bag in my hand, I sprinted to the kitchen. "What now?" "Ice cream?" "Chocolate chip?" "What else?" "You're the best." Inevitably, I blushed as she came closer to me and stopped with hers just a finger's breadth away from my face. Grinning, Rose took the ice cream and put it in the freezer. "So come on, you fleeting heart, tell me everything." "Only if you promise to follow your cruel deeds." "We'll see." The sound of something falling to the floor startled us both. A second later, I remembered that I had put the sushi on the table. "I'm afraid that was our sushi," Rose continued to laugh and put her arm around me. "Should I have bought treats?" "That wouldn't have helped either." As quickly as the slight peck on my cheek came, I couldn't react at all. The wide grin on Rose's face made me laugh. Somehow everything was easier around her. She had used the few seconds I was lost in thought to unpack the rest and pour us the daiquiris. She raised her glass and toasted in my direction. "Well, I'd be ready to gossip." Why I felt warm, I couldn't say, but I knew she had been right when she called the heart a fleeting thing, because mine was about to fly away, and I didn't know where or why.
