TITLE: The Knight of the Sea
FANDOM: Stargate Atlantis
SERIES: The Hungry Stars
LENGTH/RAITINGS: 325 words, PG-13 (mild cursing)
WARNINGS/SPOILERS: None
NOTES: The Atlanteans didn't just bring old legends with them through the stargates, they started new ones... Written for the [livejournal.com profile] sga_flashfic Folklore Challenge.
SUMMARY: They sing a song of the Knight of the Sea; of hidden patterns that bind us all together, of eyes of piercing blue that see the parts of a greater whole, and how to speak unspoken truths. - They Sing to Remember


It's simple math; drawn in the dirt with a stick in a desperate bid to communicate with aliens who were actually aliens, but it isn't working and Rodney is this close to giving into the urge to scream at them until they hand John over. They seem to be waiting for something, watching him, weighing him against some unknown scale and why the hell--

It's a different stick that draws the story beside his equations in the dirt.

A few twisting lines and here's John falling from the sky in the puddlejumper, only it looks like a star, not a ship. It's just lines and squiggles but Rodney still flinches a little when it draws the crash, because they thought they'd lost him for good this time. And there's Ronon, guns blazing as they come through the stargate, looking for John and finding Wraith instead. Only it's flaming swords instead of guns, and the Wraith have stars for eyes. More deft strokes and there's Teyla, standing between them and the Wraith, sword in one hand and knife in the other. And the knife must mean something, but he's a physicist not an anthropologist; which is why SG-1 has Jackson and they really should get a Jackson of their own, because this is just making his head hurt. A few more lines and now she's singing? Talking? And then there's him, or he thinks it's him because the last one doesn't have a sword or a knife it has a... a stick? And there are his numbers, copied over again in the red-brown soil, only this time it doesn't stop at simple math and he finds himself staring at the equations in a numb sort of shock until the stick finally stops and waits for him to reply.

Maybe they'll remember John for his wings, and Ronon for his guns, and Teyla for her song, but Rodney, they'll remember Rodney for his math.

And that's enough.

SUMMARY:They sing a song of the Knight of the Fires; of a giant who felled the stars, of a son of a fallen world, and fearless warrior for forgotten dead. - They Sing to Remember


It doesn't bother Ronon, being a legend, he's been one before and at least this time he isn't the shadow of death and loss and cold dark silences Wraith leave behind. This time they run to him instead of away, and he's forgotten how good that feels, protecting. He's done the same for John and McKay and Teyla, but they don't need him, not the same way. And when the elder makes him kneel so she can draw reds and yellows in deft fingerstrokes of paint across his face, he thinks he might have finally found a legend that fits.

TITLE: They Sing to Remember
FANDOM: Stargate Atlantis
AU: The Hungry Stars
LENGTH/RATING: 200 words, PG
SHIPS/WARNINGS: None
SUMMARY: They came to bring John home, but left behind something just as important.


On a world called Wide Sky, in a language made of vowels, the children sing. They sing learning songs, remembering songs, and magic songs to keep the stars at bay.

They sing a song of the Knight of the Winds; of wild hair and laughing eyes, of a will as solid as stone, and a heart as big as the sky.

They sing a song of the Knight of the Fires; of a giant who felled the stars, of a son of a fallen world, and fearless warrior for forgotten dead.

They sing a song of the Knight of the Earth; of a queen in a long line of queens, huntress, protector, and of silver words of friendship woven as a net against the stars.

They sing a song of the Knight of the Sea; of hidden patterns that bind us all together, of eyes of piercing blue that see the parts of a greater whole, and how to speak unspoken truths.

They sing to remember the four-in-one, who stepped from the mirrored sea and walked among them for a time. And they aren't quite legend yet, but soon will be.

On a world called Wide Sky, the children sing.

TITLE: They Sing to Forget
FANDOM: Stargate Atlantis
AU: The Hungry Stars
LENGTH/RATING: 100 words, PG
SHIPS/WARNINGS: None
SUMMARY: When the team is attacked by the Wraith John, separated in the fighting, seeks shelter with the natives.


There's a song they sing, when the world is ending. When the skies rain silver and blue, and the ghosts of hungry stars fall to earth. It's a quiet song, a simple song, whispered by children crouched in the hills of their home. A magic song that keeps them safe through the long dark night. They teach it to John so he can sing with them, his voice deep and rough like the sea.

There's a different song they sing for the morning, when the sun chases the stars back into the sky, but by then John isn't singing anymore.
