|Title: Playing Nice in the Sandbox|
Genre: Gen some h/c, action/adventure, humor, etc
Characters: Sheppard and McKay, Sherlock and Watson, Mycroft, and Moriarty (sort of...)
Word count: ~ 32,000
Spoilers: Pretty much anything through any season of both shows.
Author Notes: Never in a million years would I have though to cross over SGA with Sherlock, but the lovely brate talked me into it for her Zine Crossing the Gate. What follows is all her fault and made all the better by her and her editorial staff's wonderful work. A huge thanks to spacedmonkey for the Brit picks. All remnants of my American self are my own and no reflection of her genuine Britishness. Also, I guess my New Years resolution should be to post expired zine fics in less than 6 month after they expire. I'll try to do better when the sequel expires this summer.
Summary: When Sheppard and McKay need to access a remote area of British occupied Afghanistan in search of a possible Ancient outpost, they are assigned a British military liaison in the form of Captain John Watson...and his flatmate, whose brother has coerced them both into taking the assignment.
Just click on the title and it will take you to my AO3 page where the fic is posted.

|Wow, I really should be better at posting more than once a year, but unfortunately, that's about how often I ever get the chance to write a fic. And I'm highly negligent in even posting this notice of a new zine fic that will debut at MediaWest this year. Brate and her crew have once more convinced me to write a crossover fic for Crossing the Gate volume II. The zine features cross over fics between SGA and/or SG1 and other fandoms such as Mag 7, Teen Wolf, Person Of Interest, Big Bang Theory, Sentinel, and yes, mine, which is a follow up to my SGA/Sherlock fic I did for last years zine. This time there's twice the Rodney, twice the Sherlock, and four times the Johns thanks to a quantum mirror and a peek into a multiverse where things got a little jumbled. Details from Brate are bellow:|
We're back again with another edition of "Cross the Gate." We asked our authors for more stories with multiple fandoms crossed with Stargate SG-1 and/or Stargate: Atlantis, and they came through in spectacular fashion!
"Cross the Gate Vol. II" will be premiering Memorial Day weekend, May 22-26 2014 at the MediaWest Convention in Lansing, Michigan.
The zine format is a perfect-bound 6"x9" paperback, and contains 242 pages of fic. Story titles and summaries are listed at the site. All of the stories are brand new, and will not be posted online for one year after publication.
Cross the Gate Vol. II is $20 in person at the con, and $25.60 mail (cont. U.S.). We take Paypal, or you can email me for an address where you can send a check or money order.
Please be aware, this will be a limited print run. Once we run out, the zine will no longer be available.
I will be posting last years zine fic, Playing Nice in the Sandbox, around the end of the month once it expires. So you don't have any excuse not to go buy this gorgeous zine (I received my trib copy just last week!).
Go! Order! Read! Enjoy! Celebrate fandom!

|As most of you know, I've contributed fics to the Jumper series of zines over the past several years. It's always great to work with Brate and her team of editors and they always put out a high quality zine. This year, however, Brate decided to try something new and put together a zine full of fics that cross over SGA and/or SG1 with any other fandom. When Brate sent me the invite, she also asked that I consider doing something I never expected to see, muchless write myself...SGA crossed with Sherlock. While I love both fandoms dearly, all I could think was, how in the world would those two fandoms ever meet? I mean, they have nothing in common.... other than both have primary characters named John who had horrific experiences in Afghanistan prior to meeting up with an obnoxious genius who simultaneously turned their world upside down while making it all worth while again.|
So, yeah, I lost a little bit of what's left of my mind, and wrote the fic.
It's called Playing Nice in the Sandbox, and it revolves around Sheppard and McKay investigating a mysterious ping that communicating with the gate from Afghanistan. John Watson has been reactivated back into the Army by the British IOA representaive (cough...Mycroft..cough), and of course, Sherlock isn't going to stand for him going alone. Needless to say, they all run into much trouble, both alien and insurgent in nature.
Information on the Zine from the lovely Brate is posted behind the cut, with a link to the website where you can order it. The website also has the list of all of the other fics and brief synopsis. There's everything from Supernatural to Magnificent 7, Real Ghostbusters, Star Trek, and NCIS. I received my copy in the mail this week, and let me tell you, it is beautifully bound and I can't wait to start reading the fics!
So, go! Order! Read! And if you're going to MediaWest this year, you can even pick one up in person.
