Carson Beckett and Rodney McKay appeared onscreen together early in the first episode of SGA, The Rising. Fans took notice of their friendly, or as friendly as it gets when Rodney McKay is involved, relationship and a slash pairing was born.
The Beckett McKay community on Livejournal was the first m/m pairing community to form, opening just one week after The Rising aired in the US. While the popularity of the pairing waned a little, particularly in the period when the character was dead, fans never completely abandoned the ship.
