Title: The Perfect Choice
Author: Tarlan ([livejournal.com profile] tarlanx)
Artist: Valika

Summary: Instead of returning to the SGC after the Anubis incident, Rodney stays in Siberia, and Elizabeth chooses Kavanagh to be her chief of Science for the Atlantis Expedition. Having designed and built the Daedalus, Rodney persuades O'Neill to let them go search for the missing Atlantis Expedition.

I really couldn't decide what snippet to post as a preview but, hopefully, this will give a small flavor of the story to come :)


They were barely through the departments starting with the letter B, listening to Doctor Parrish describe the trials and tribulations - mostly trials - of Botany on Atlantis, when McKay spoke up.

"Is this really necessary?"

Kavanagh folded his arms, mirroring McKay. "As Chief of Science on Atlantis, I felt it relevant for this meeting to see our accomplishments."

"Accomplishments? Doctor Church..." McKay waved a hand at Parrish, "...has revealed a sad lack in accomplishments due to problems within the hydroponics area. Before him, Doctor Biochemistry here," he waved at a young woman standing against the wall, "...mentioned a lack of suitable laboratory space, and Anthropology is still awaiting access to the Ancient database. Hardly a glowing stack of accomplishments."

Weir stepped in before Kavanagh could respond, leaning forward. "And how would you prefer to proceed, Doctor McKay?"

McKay looked across the table to Zelenka before turning back to Weir. "How about these people send in a report of all the problems in their respective areas and then, instead of wasting my precious time now, we spend this meeting talking solutions to far bigger problems. Oh, such as a slowly sinking city."

"It's listing," Kavanagh exclaimed.

"It's sinking," McKay came back, and gave Zelenka a hard stare, obviously expecting Zelenka to support him.

Oh, yeah...ummm...I may - possibly - have just drooled all over my keyboard from wanting to read the rest of this. Let me just say I. Can't. Wait.

Thanks so much!

I am always in awe of your brain and the ideas you come up with, and this is no exception! Go save the expedition, Rodney!

"It's sinking," McKay came back
And I bet he's right!

I'm so looking forward to read this!
