Vegasverse is a Stargate Atlantis fandom label for stories set in the canon parallel universe introduced in the fifth season episode "Vegas". Many stories are fix-its to the apparent death of Vegas!John Sheppard at the end of that episode, or imagine other AU versions of the events of that episode that end better for Sheppard.

- Damaged Goods by jendavis - "AU: Ronon's immune to the wraith. Detective John Sheppard doesn't die in the Las Vegas desert. It would probably be easier if the opposites of both were true." - slash, Sheppard/Ronan, complete, posted 2011
- Cosmic Balance by Tarlan - "When a murder occurs on Atlantis, Woolsey requests a civilian detective to handle the case, and who better than a Vegas detective who already knows all about the Stargate Program. As the investigation progresses, it draws John and Rodney closer together." - slash, Sheppard/McKay, oneshot, explicit, posted 2013
- Colorado Hold 'Em by ShippenStand - "If asked, Evan Lorne would say he liked gate travel and fighting aliens, and misses everything about the SGC except maybe the food. And the bureaucracy. He definitely doesn't miss the bureaucracy, even if it's probably the reason he walked out with his discharge papers instead of a court-martial. Of course, he can't say any of that, even though his hot new training officer at the Las Vegas PD, Laura Cadman, would sure like to know where he got his combat experience. But when something he's pretty sure belongs back in the Pegasus galaxy appears on a casino video monitor, he realizes he's got a couple of things he needs to tell her, and aliens are just the start." - het, Evan Lorne/Laura Cadman, oneshot, posted 2014
- Morality Matters by Ari of the Ancients - "In Vegas AU, Todd is being held captive and tortured in Area 51. Dr Jennifer Keller decides to risk everything, in order to do the right thing." - slash and het, John Sheppard/Todd, Jennifer Keller/Todd, John Sheppard/Jennifer Keller, complete posted 2015
