khriskin: (Where the Ocean Meets the Sky)
TITLE: Almost Superman
FANDOM: Stargate Atlantis
AU: Where the Ocean Meets the Sky
LENGTH/RATING: 169 words, PG-13
SUMMARY: He only has to fail once...


When Atlantis talks, time stops. From one breath to the next Rodney watches the world freeze as she floods down the neural net and overclocks his brain. Sight, sound, movement, all pushed aside in that blast of raw information.

The first few times were terrifying. Just the idea that he could be thinking, processing, so quickly that time mired itself gave him nightmares. Because as fast as he was, Atlantis was faster.

But it was when he stopped being terrified that it really scared him. The day he felt the first wisps of want, stuck in the midst of an engineering problem, bickering with Radek over power regulation, and feeling frustrated-- feeling... slow.

She knew what it did to him, those sudden flashes of something he couldn't be. She knew, and he knew she knew, and she used it ruthlessly. Because there was always another crisis around the corner, another race against impossible odds, and he could never say no.

Not when they all depended on him.

Not yet.

khriskin: (Stargate)
TITLE: The Best of All Possible Worlds
FANDOM: Stargate Atlantis
LENGTH/RATING: 100 words, PG
WARNINGS/SPOILERS: None
SUMMARY: Leibniz by way of Voltaire, I blame college for corrupting my brain. *solemn nod*


For every time Atlantis survived the rising, there were a hundred universes where she didn't. A hundred empty rooms on the other side of the quantum mirror that wasn’t; an Ancient looking glass into the myriad might-have-beens. But the rooms weren't always empty and more often than not there was another John there, haggard and lean, staring back into that same window of possibilities. He chatted with them some nights, passing back and forth stories that had never happened, but in the end they’d always say their goodbyes and move on, restlessly searching for the city where he wasn't alone.

khriskin: (Stargate)
TITLE: Summer Nights
FANDOM: Stargate Atlantis
LENGTH/RATING: 100 words, PG
WARNINGS/SPOILERS: None
SUMMARY: Summer fling, don't mean a thing, but uh-oh those summer nights...*


The gate teams start calling them 'accidentals', the subtle cultural faux pas ending in the Pegasus Galaxy's version of a one-night stand. They joke it's the closest they'll get to dating with regulations back in effect; fraternization rules take on a whole new light inside a floating city in the middle of nowhere. There were discrete questions in that first year when home was a galaxy away and getting farther, but no official policy was ever made. So they just solider on, because no one wants to face being reassigned and leaving home on the wrong side of the gate.

khriskin: House M.D. Icon (House)
TITLE: Of Catecholamines and Homeostasis
FANDOM: House, M.D.
LENGTH/RATING: 100 words, PG-13
SHIPS/WARNINGS: none
SUMMARY: Homeostasis: The ability of an organism or cell to maintain internal equilibrium. Catecholamines: Any of a group of amines derived from catechol that have important physiological effects as neurotransmitters and hormones and include epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine.


Watching House teach is like watching a badger herd sheep, it works, but it's a unique definition of 'works'.

Wilson leans against the second floor railing, half-empty coffee in hand, looking down on the carnage. Surviving House has become an unofficial badge of honor; for every terrified student, there's another leaning into the questions, fighting for the chance to be 'not quite as stupid as you look' or 'useful for something other than Soylent Green'.

But it's the ones that do neither that Wilson watches, between sips of lukewarm coffee, because surviving House isn't the same as learning from him.
