Author Appreciation week - Seperis recs

This is my contribution to the week of Author Appreciation recs organised by [personal profile] popkin16 over on LJ and tumblr. I'm doing [personal profile] seperis 's stories as I especially enjoy them.

Where I Lay My Head (M)
Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Summary: John's tired.

A lovely H/C nap-fic where John's exhausted after saving the city, and Rodney takes care of him and makes him rest.

Something More (E)
John Sheppard/Rodney McKay
Summary: He's out of practice with dealing with John, and it shows.

A classic, and I'm sure everyone knows it but it's a real favourite of mine. John vanished back to Earth some time ago and Rodney finally locates him, living alone by the sea. It's got that bitter-sweet egde seperis does so well, truckloads of angst, John all wounded and unforthcoming, and stubbornly persistent Rodney. There's a brief epilogue as well, if you follow the series link in the headers.

As Wide as the Sky (M)
John Sheppard/Rodney McKay, Ronon Dex/Elizabeth Weir
Summary: Find yourself. Originally published in the Duet Press zine Surfacing. My eternal gratitude for being included, as that was my first zine and I think this is the first fic that made me literally panic over comma placement.

Suspend all disbelief! John's a charismatic US senator running for president and Rodney's his brilliant campaign manager. If only.

Stronger Than Time (E)
John Sheppard/Ronon Dex
Summary: He's watching John erase a potential future with every second that passes.

Touching and hot John/Ronon first time fic set after The Last Man.

The Forest People (E)
John Sheppard/Rodney McKay, Ronon Dex/Teyla Emmagan
Summary: He can still hear the beat of drums, matching the hard beat of his heart, and catching his breath, Rodney keeps running.

This one blew me away when I first read it. It's somewhat dark, and doesn't have a happy ending depending on your perspective, but John and Rodney, and the team, stay together.

And All the World Beneath (E)
Fandoms: Supernatural, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate SG-1, Cthulhu Mythos - H. P. Lovecraft.
Dean Winchester/John Sheppard, Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Summary: Dean remembers Texas as blackland stretching in marker-thick strips of vivid brown and black, broken with the sprawling metroplexes of Dallas and San Antonio and Houston; farms spread with the yellow tops of maize waving in pre-autumn winds, threshers moving complacently through the fields with drowsy men in hats waving at the road. He remembers green and gold fields dotted with cows, half-year calves running on the outskirts of the herds. He remembers these were what he saw between jobs, lives being lived that had nothing to do with creeping twilight and sleeping only behind salt circles and ritual wards.

The list of fandoms may put you off if you're a diehard SGA fan, but this is one of the best crossovers I've ever read, and totally gripping. It's mainly an SGA/Supernatural crossover, with the Cthulhu details as part of seperis's AU worldbuilding. Can't recommend this one highly enough - an amazing read.
