Subject:I am in need of major assistance...
Time:07:41 pm
Okay, I've been invited to trib to, not one, but two zines for Mediawest next May.  And since I actually won a Fan Q Award from there this year (*VBG* and thanks to everyone who voted for Mad Science!) I feel compelled to, you know, write something somewhat decent. *G*  The good news is that there is a big gap between deadlines for submittal of first drafts so I'm pretty sure I can pull it off.  The bad news is that the first one for the Brotherhood Zine is due the middle of September and it just dawned on me today that I really should, probably, start thinking about what I'm going to write... like a month ago.  

So, here I am, and while I keep getting ideas from various prompts for short ficlets (and, honestly, a lot of slash), the gen/team 10,000 to 15,000 word stories that I like to write for zines... well, those ideas just aren't coming.  Koschka and I were bouncing ideas off each other today for the first one and while we came up with something I'm pretty sure I can work with, I'm not totally in love with the idea.  So, I'm throwing it out to you guys to give me ideas... a premise, a thought, a setting, I'll take anything you can give me and try to run with it.  As an added bonus, if I use your idea, I'll let you have a "beta" peek at the story before I submit it so you'll get a chance to read it before the zine premier in May of 2009.  Both stories must be gen and can be either team or centered around John and Rodney friendship.  Of course, you guys know what I like to write... h/c, maybe a little action, a dash of humor... so I'm opening up the field!

When I first came up with the idea for the Don Juan McKay fic I wrote, I was playing around with this same sort of idea. I just loved the idea of someone accussing or mistaking Rodney as a Don Juan type. *G* And the bounty hunter idea is fun, too. Hmmmm, once again a great deal to ponder here.

Hi again,
I had another idea for a Rodney story but that has nothing to do with your assignment right now, it's more like a story I would kill to see written. so if you like the idea and have some time on your hands sometime later.....
I read Transcendental by astolat and since then I was fascinated by the idea of Rodney in charge of the expedition but more in the sense that he gets left behind by the rest of the senior team or at least the team. I had something in my mind like the team without Rodney is onboard of the Daedalus, Atlantis gets attack by ... and the only chance to survive is for the Daedalus to flee but not before they see Atlantis exploding (which is but a farce see first seasons and they had to fly to another planet or get stuck in space till they find another ZPM). Okay, so Rodney is the most senior officer in Atlantis and has to take over and has to raise Torren too! blablabla they encounter another gruesome enemy (I have something like the reavers in my mind) and after a few years finally they are able to make contact with earth again where the Stargate program was declassified in the meantime and everyone is a hero, celebrity.... and brings this "behavior" back to Atlantis where the rest of the expedition just had to fight for its survival all the years and gets a little bit pissed with the new folks. I also had the idea that Atlantis just declares itself independent what earth doesn't like at all.
Okay enough pimping, if you want to give it a try I would feel very honored but please only if you like it.

The idea of Atlantis faking their demise and being cut off from Earth has been done by.... mmmm, I think it was Auburn, only it was John on Atlantis and Rodney on Earth and it was slash. Man, I can't remember the name of the fic either, its a couple of years old, but it was beautifully written but dark and depressing (she writes beautifully but depresses the hell out of me. I also believe Cesperanza's fic Written by the Victors deals with an independent Atlantis (again slash). It was *hugely* popular but I so rarely get to read anything these days unless it's a little ficlet and this was novella length, I believe. So, both are great ideas but they've already been handled by some of the best writers in the fandom. *G*
