Yay for more fanfics! There are a couple of long Naruto fics I really want to read now but am just keeping a tab open for because I need to sleep. I did enjoy the short fic Crush by Sugahlei, a fun drunken first-time fic. I really like these mostly funny but also sorta serious types of fics with this pairing. XDXD

I also had an urge to reread a particular SGA fic that I'd read a while back. Unfortunately, I couldn't remember the title or author. I tried searching with keywords but kept coming across the wrong fics. Finally, finally, I hit the jackpot. Turned out the fic I was craving was Take Clothes Off As Directed by Helen, a fabulous AU where John is a sub in a BDSM world. It doesn't glorify BDSM at all. It's just the way life is, and John doesn't really fit. Helen is a genius in making John and Rodney oh so massively dorky and/or clueless as they flail and try to make things work. I found more fics I had somehow missed by her and had great fun reading them. One in particular that was painfully funny was This Gun's For Hire, one of those "aliens made them do it" mixed up real good with a big dose of denial.

SGA has got to be one of the best fandoms to be in for people who have never seen the show. I remember devouring everything in sight way back when, loving it all. I was a bit thrown off when I'd finally watched the show and discovered that I saw no slashy vibes between John and Rodney. It took a couple of seasons for that to develop. XD; I came across a bunch of fics I'd read and loved in my quest for the Helen fic that I now want to reread. God, what a fandom...

Haha! I was the same way. First I read SGA fic and then I watched the show and went, "You know, this is good, but somehow I imagined things... I don't know. Sparklier. Or something." XD But I kept on watching anyway and loved it (also, me going into fandom first BEFORE watching the show made absolutely sure that I liked the most popular pairing in fandom, which is a good thing, as sometimes I get stuck on someone or another and whine piteously over fandom being morons or something. *coughs*)

I think I would've disliked canon Rodney if I hadn't been indoctrinated by fandom first. He came across a bit too whiny and abrasive without the cuteness that came out more in later episodes.

Agreed! Though the geeky flailing over that personal shield was fun. XD
