Summary: "Dean remembers Texas as blackland stretching in marker-thick strips of vivid brown and black, broken with the sprawling metroplexes of Dallas and San Antonio and Houston; farms spread with the yellow tops of maize waving in pre-autumn winds, threshers moving complacently through the fields with drowsy men in hats waving at the road. He remembers green and gold fields dotted with cows, half-year calves running on the outskirts of the herds. He remembers these were what he saw between jobs, lives being lived that had nothing to do with creeping twilight and sleeping only behind salt circles and ritual wards."
Recs and Reviews
And All the World Beneath by seperis is difficult to describe as anything but horror, although that label fits poorly. It's apocalyptic, it's magical realism, it's epic, it's adventure, it's angst, it's horror. It's Stargate Atlantis and it's Supernatural and it's mind-blowing. Think Lovecraft if Lovecraft could write worth a damn.
Imagine an America of the near future that has gone thru a mystical 'holocaust'. Where ghosts, demons, spirits & monsters, all the 'hidden' things are taking over (or taking back) the world. Where small pockets of humanity still exist but staying alive & safe depends on how well you can cast a protective ward. This is world that team Sheppard finds themselves lost in and told from Dean's POV. [...] warnings: it is rated NC17 and though there are a couple of m/m slash scenes they aren't very graphic & are a *very* small part of the story. There are however scenes of supernatural horror & extreme violence. There is also a point right near the end that you're going to say "Oh my god, why didn't she warn us?". I'm trying very hard not to give anything away so trust me & keep reading til the end, you won't be disappointed.
It's John/Dean, but at it's heart it's all about the John/Rodney love. NC-17 and utterly brilliant (and I don't even like SPN). A dark and compelling read.
The list of fandoms may put you off if you're a diehard SGA fan, but this is one of the best crossovers I've ever read, and totally gripping. It's mainly an SGA/Supernatural crossover, with the Cthulhu details as part of seperis's AU worldbuilding. Can't recommend this one highly enough - an amazing read.
Yet ANOTHER crossover between two of my favorite fandoms. This story is a dark, intense, bleak apocafic with stunning prose and characters that are emotionally true. You feel their pain and grief and eventual hope like it was your own. Knowledge of the Stargate universe IS preferred but I urge you to read it either way.
