Every Day in Every Way is a Stargate Atlantis John/Rodney story by velocitygrass. It was written for the SGA Big Bang Challenge 2007. mamoru22 made a fic trailer for the story and Crysothemis created an illustration (pencil drawing).
Summary: "I'm here to propose an arrangement. Between us. I assume you remember our talk from earlier today and how... challenging dating can be on Atlantis. And since we've established that you're attracted to me, I think it would be mutually beneficial for us to have sex."
Reactions and Reviews
Now this is what I'm talking about. John and Rodney are captured, tied together, and accidentally have sex (*sigh* Sometimes I really do love SGA fic). They quickly establish that while John is flexible, Rodney is straight, and Rodney proceeds to have a gay freakout that rates somewhat lower on the McKay freakout scale than Rodney's 'I have a splinter in my finger' freakout. Then it occurs to Rodney that this is the perfect opportunity for convenient, no-strings sex and even straight guys can do hand-jobs, right?
I think you can guess what happens next.After a dozen SGA stories so painfully depressing that I actually had to force myself to finish them, this bit of fluff was very, very welcome. It's not literature level writing (actually, the style kind of reminded me of romance novel writing, which enhanced the Harlequin feel), but Rodney's snarky and the plot is fun and you'll walk away from this fic feeling refreshed and happy. If that's not a reason to read fanfic, I don't know what is. Viva la Harlequin!
The story starts as a “friends with benefits” arrangement between two lonely men who are tired of being lonely. It takes a long time for both of them to see that they are in a real relationship together. It’s an early SGA Big Bang story.
