Word Count: ~5,500
Characters: McKay, Sheppard, Carson, team
Spoilers: Set sometime early season 3 because I wanted Carson in it.
A/N: Thanks as always to Koschka for the quick beta. I realized with posting the AU I forgot to post the link to this one.
Summary: Sheppard’s grin just grew at the way he could hear the sarcasm even though McKay remained completely silent. He could hear it as clearly as he had heard the entire unspoken exchange they’d had under the house on the mission, his time he’d spent with the scientist allowing John to fill in the blanks of their conversations even when he was the only one talking.
