The Fic Battle Rules
1. This post will be open for fic (and fanart) from Tuesday, March 11th (at the latest), and be open through Sunday, March 23rd. Ish. We like to build in extra time. Just in case RL happens. And RL so very often happens, doesn't it?
2. You have the space of one comment to fit your fic in. Alternately, you can give an excerpt, and leave a link to a longer work, if you're just that awesomely inspired. :)
3. A thumbnail for fanart should be posted, along with a link to the larger work. Your thumbnail should be around 200 to 300 pixels high, and maybe 250 to 350 pixels wide, while including enough of the artwork to get a work safe
idea of what it looks like. (Icons are also allowed, but let's try not to spam everyone with icons, okay? Three icons per comment, and a link to a longer post, should any of the prompts inspire iconage in great number. But only one comment per prompt.)
4. Anyone may write (or create) for any prompt! It's a ficcish free-for-all.
5. You can make as many entries as you want! (However, your mods stress quality over quantity any day of the week.) We simply request that you keep one comment per prompt. Otherwise, things get confusing. Very, very confusing.
6. The usual rare pairings rules will apply: Any and every 'ship possible in gen, het, femslash, or slash, except the four biggest, which are: Sheppard/Weir, McKay/Sheppard, Daniel/Jack, and Jack/Sam (all are awesome; also, they already get a lot of love). Threesome/Moresome fics that contain those pairings are allowed.
7. We're disallowing crossovers with non-Gateverse series, in keeping with the rules for the ficathons we've run previously on this comm.
8. All prompts are divided into Gen, Het, Femslash, Slash, and Threesome/Moresome, and then subdivided by grouping. We've ordered everything as alphabetically as possible, and by full name, in an attempt to avoid showing favoritism to any one character or pairing. (That means that, yes, if you prompted Rodney McKay/Teyla Emmagan, you will find it listed under Teyla Emmagan/Rodney McKay. We really are that OCD. Also, it allowed us to pull any duplicate prompts more easily.)
9. There are no offensive prompts allowed. Period. Nor are offensive fics. We want to keep things enjoyable for everyone participating. Your mods dislike the various -isms, and get burned up an insane amount by character or pairing bashing. (We're also severely freaked out by the thought of underage characters porning it up. Not to mention severely freaked out by the LJ-banning consequences of such. Please don't bring the PTB down on us.)
10. Please use your subject line to identify your story: 'Title, Pairing, Prompt, Genre, Rating'. This will help us organize everything nice and tidily when we post a master list.
For example: 'Eclipsed, Teyla Emmagan/Elizabeth Weir, fervent devotion, Femslash, NC-17'
11. If you have any questions or comments, please leave them on the intial prompt-gathering post
. Thank you! ETA
: 12. We had a question! Yes, genderbender/genderswap fics are allowed. They may not be a part of the initial prompt, but I don't see why that should stop anyone.ETA 02
: 13. Yes, you can write your own prompts. Please feel free to!ETA 03
: 14. Regarding Spoilers
. If you're worried about season four SGA spoilers, or season ten SG1 spoilers, this is not the place to be. We're not worried about those. OTOH, if you post Ark of Truth or Continuum spoilers, you will have spoiled not just most of the fandom, but your friendly mods, who will suddenly be much less friendly at you. Please post spoilery fics in your journal, and link them here with a note that there are spoilers. Thank you!

After a few days, Sheppard's waiting for him in the corridor outside his quarters. "Mind if I run with you?" he asks, expression unreadable.
Ronon shrugs, wondering if he really has a choice, and says, "If you want."
Sheppard waves off the guards and runs alongside him.
For that, Ronon goes slower, lets Sheppard keep pace. Once (if, a traitorous voice whispers in the back of his head) they trust him enough to lose the guards, Ronon will show Sheppard how seven years of Running have taught him to practically fly.
Ronon has learned many things over the years, but one of the most important is how to take his wants and wishes and put them in a box in his head where they can't bother or distract him. It's what kept him sane during that endless stretch of being chased as prey across the galaxy.
There's something in the air or water here, though, that is dissolving the box bit by bit. He's finding it difficult to ignore the want that rises up from the pit of his stomach, the itch in his hands to touch the back of Sheppard's neck, the way his mouth waters sometimes to taste the sheen of sweat on Sheppard's skin after a particularly long run.
Sometimes it is all Ronon can do to just lengthen his stride until Sheppard's struggling to keep up, cursing him under his breath, until the only thing in front of him is the empty corridor, Sheppard out of sight and less (slightly less) of a temptation.
The morning runs with Sheppard have become so deeply ingrained in him after almost two years that every time Sheppard is injured and Ronon has to run alone, it feels unnatural. Even now, glancing sideways, Ronon can see a bruise on Sheppard's jaw and a slight pallor to his skin that reveals he's not quite well enough to be back on active duty, despite his attempts to cajole Carson into saying he is.
Sheppard notices him looking. His mouth quirks into a rueful grin, his eyes gleaming with a mixture of mischief and irony. "All the colors of the rainbow," he says, gesturing towards the bruise and then more vaguely towards the back of his head, around the spot Carson had fussed over and announced was a concussion.
Ronon smirks a little. The bruise isn't quite a rainbow yet but well on its way. "Next time, duck," he suggests.
Sheppard laughs, the sound echoing in the empty corridor, and drawls, "I'll try to remember that." He's grinning again; the sight of it makes the want that's coiled in Ronon's belly rise up and overwhelm him.
Ronon knows the feel of Sheppard's skin from countless sparring matches. What he doesn't know is the feel of Sheppard's mouth against his. Now, as Ronon kisses him, he finds that Sheppard's mouth is warm, lips slightly chapped. There's the beginning of a beard prickling his skin.
Sheppard's eyes are wide and startled-looking when Ronon finally breaks the kiss. Ronon just waits. Either Sheppard will bolt and avoid him until he's mentally convinced himself this was just an odd Satedan custom or he'll-- Ronon tries not to think too hard about the second option, because hope has always seemed to let him down.
At last, though, Sheppard blinks and says, "Huh. That was-- Huh." He sounds a little dazed, but there's the hint of a smile on his lips, and Ronon feels something in him relax a little.
"Teyla and Rodney are meeting us for breakfast," he says and turns in the direction of the commissary. After a moment, he hears Sheppard's footfalls following after and Sheppard's gaze on his back.
They're almost to the commissary when Sheppard breaks the silence. "My quarters, after breakfast?" His voice is a little hoarser than usual, a little more jittery, and Ronon smiles to himself.
"Yeah," is all he says and opens the half-dissolved box of wants and wishes in his head.
