I'd get better a response from a graveyard than this community! Hehe. Come on...canon doesn't mean death.
Anyway I started reading this fic and all of a sudden got attacked by ship! =D Writer is very inclined towards ship.
Taken On Trust by Ann3
Beckett's greatest strength can also be his greatest weakness. (advertised as whump fic)
A romance novel gets passed around Atlantis. CadmanBeckett and SheppardWeir.
Jist Blethers by fififolle (PG)
Collection of one shots about Carson. Beckett/Cadman at chapters 1 and 5.
By Its Cover by Ann3 (PG)
Collection of one shots about Carson. Laura's impressions of Carson at chapter 6.
The following couple involve what I call "hiccups" in the ship. I haven't linked them before because I usually like feeling happy and tingly. But then the stories were resolved and I sorta got that feeling in the end.
Misconceptions by Nelowl (PG-13)
Colonel Sheppard and his team bring back strangers who claim to be Athosians. But are these people all that they seem? (this hiccup involves no particular angst)
Dark Secret by Elizabeth Bartlett (PG-13)
Laura has a secret about one of her children. Not very well written. (this hiccup involves lotsa angst and *shudder* McKay)
Those Darn Alien Spores by Porthos1013 (PG-13)
Alien spores made them do it...or did they? Alien influences and locked cupboards make this a great fic. Multiship, mostly Beckett/Cadman with mcweir.
Some Questions Are Difficult to Ask by Alex Took (G)
The lovable little scottish doctor wants to ask Laura Cadman on a date, but is harder than it seems. All day long he stalls, and then...falls? Cute fic. I like it. =)
The Ring by Elizabeth Bartlett (G)
Carson's tells Emily about her grandmother. Same author that wrote The Meaning of Names, same verse. Sweet lil fic.
Interlude, with Astrophysicist by tielan (PG)
Rodney's in a panic. Carson gets to comfort him. It's been a long day. Tag to Long Goodbye, many mentions of sheyla, nice Beckett/Cadman ending.
Eavesdropping by Dr_Dredd (PG-13)
Colonel Sheppard learns the dangers of eavesdropping in the infirmary. I love this one =D Only warnings the author gave are for sexual innuendo but it's really quite harmless.
The Seduction of Carson Beckett by mksmithie (NC-17)
Tag for Duet. Author describes as "pure fluffy romantic stuff." I'd say it's a little more than that, lol. Rating for a reason. And I say there should be more of it...
Lost But Not Little Boys by Susan (NC-17)
McKay is tramatized by the AU events of "The Lost Boys." As a result of his N/C, he must reconsider who he is and wants to be. Also very explicit Beckett/Cadman and a little Weir/Other. < at first glance this summary was enough to send me packing but I succumbed and read it. Half of its McKay noncon but there's definite NC-17 Beckett/Cadman
Again Wraithbait is hard to wade through if its listed under another ship so I haven't found any more. I found what could be considered a fic for our ship but it's angst and involves that dreaded Cadman/Rodney...so no I will not link it. lol.
Recs recs recs beginning with my favourite.
Saving Grace by McRaider (PG)
They're more than just best friends, they're brothers...what if John and Rodney were brothers by adoption. Don't let the summary put you off, it's a GREAT story and the Beckett/Cadman which develops is excellent. Sheyla, mcweir, Beckett/Cadman. if you don't read the whole fic (because it's fantastic) then at least read chapter 71 for something very very very very very special.
The Meaning of Names by Elizabeth Bartlett (PG)
Carson and Laura come up with names for baby Beckett. Read not for quality but for fluff =D Amusing and cute, first baby fic I've come across.
In Sickness and in Hell by LE McMurray (PG)
Finally a fic where Rodney and Cadman can have a platonic relationship *rejoices* Bits of Beckett/Cadman here and there. This writer usually does Rodney/Cadman so I was pleasantly surprised. I really have had enough of Rodney and Cadman as a couple lol...
Dr Beckett and Mr Hyde by Ann3 (PG)
Laura's about to find out that doctors really do make lousy patients. Oh so utterly sweet and adorable. =D
The Start of Something Good by CMDragonia (G)
Carson reflects on the past few days while Cadman has somethings to explain about Rodney's behavior. Missing scene between Carson and Cadman during Duet. Nice little missing scene. =)
Attack of the Birdy by Lady Valmar (G)
A peaceful day on Atlantis and our favorite couple 'Carson and Laura' are out on the balcony eating a midmorning breakfast. Then a bird shows up and ruins their breakfast. Very very random, really no point but it made me smile...
Recs from another website another time. =D Fanfiction.net is quite hard to wade through.
PS: Just wish my own would make it to a fanfic *grovels to piece paper bearing the dialogue* I need inspiration...
This Time by scrunchy (PG)
Summary: "You shouldn't play favorites," Cadman blinked against the harsh lights and tried to sit up. ... "The other patients will get jealous."
B/C fics do always seem to come after some sort of accident, don't they? Very sweet little fic, with some good characterizations and snarking. Makes me want to pet Carson even more than usual.
Strength and honor are her clothing by kajikia (R)
Summary: "We don't leave a woman behind, either, ma'am."
This story is, honestly, not very shippy at all. It focuses more on Cadman than on the pairing, but there's a wonderful little B/C moment in there that makes me smile, and I am never one to turn down a story where Laura gets to kick ass and take names. Awesome story.
Phone Tag by lamichelle (PG)
Special note: This fic is for the langford_u AU comm, info can be found here.
Summary: When it comes to dating at Langford University, the campus rumor mill isn't the only problem.
I found this one on a fluke. lamichelle recently posted a very cute little B/C ficlet for wildwest_lantis (Another AU, Pleasant Company, I hope she has more forthcoming), so I dug back in her fic posts a bit (as I am prone to) and found this one, which I enjoyed even more. The AU setting takes a bit to adjust to, although I'd heard of these comms a while back and have a general idea of how they work, but Carson and Laura translate perfectly to fit into the AU, personalities still completely intact. And Carson's a keeper in any universe.
Night Five by chasingkerouac (PG-13)
Summary: It was always evident when someone had died in Carson's care, Laura thought.
Set of five ficlets for the last stagesoflove challenge. They all take place pretty much one after the other, in the course of a single night, and tie together beautifully. There's a reason this one was nominated for the Stargate Fan Awards, ^_^
Chesapeake Ladies by chasingkerouac (PG)
Summary: It's 1890 in Annapolis and Laura Cadman is faced with a devastating decision to follow her heart or save her family...
It's Harlequin B/C, hee. And I still want to see the rest of the story before this scene. Seriously. I need to see Carson steal Laura away from reluctant fiancé Rodney, *snickers*
...Anyone else got any recs for us?
What are your fav B/C stories? Why should we read them, what do you love about them? Point me to them!
To get things started out, and since I can't ever choose just one, three of my favorite stories for the sharing.
A New Perspective by kyffin (PG)
Summary: Carson has a change of perspective.
The fic is done from Carson's POV after an accident. I love the voice kyffin gives Carson and the characterization of Laura is fantastic. Maybe between 1000-2000 words, but it packs a great punch. A fantastic introspective Carson.
Separate Salt From Sand by wickedwords (PG)
Summary: Kate never liked this aspect of her job.
This was written as a response to the Debriefing Challenge at sga_flashfic. It's told from Kate's POV, which isn't usually done so it's enjoyable just for the change of pace of narrators for a change. But similarly to the previous story, it centers on the aftermath of an accident. The voices of the supporting characters, especially Lorne, make this a rich and heartwrenching story. Hmm, I don't know what it is with me and accidents, but it just tugs at my heartstrings.
Widow's Walk by spazzula/andromeda_25 (PG)
Summary: Carson has a history of off-world missions gone terribly wrong, and he's not the only one who's noticed.
Spoilers/Tags: for both 'Michael' and 'Inferno' in season two
At least this one doesn't take place after an accident! Well, it takes place after Michael, so that's an ordeal unto itself, but I digress. Again, going with the love of having Beckett/Cadman told from another POV, this one is written in Elizabeth's voice as she watched Laura watch Carson. And for as much as I try to like Elizabeth, I usually don't, but I enjoy her in this fic which is an accomplishment unto itself. It's rare to find something that has the entire focus between the women on Atlantis, and that's another delighfully enjoyable change of pace. It's short, but solid.
Well, we'll make it four since I can't only give three heavy pieces. We need something lighter...
The Lysistrata Project by siriaeve (R)
Summary: "Doctor Weir, I do believe that there is something we could do which would help save Atlantis’ reputation as a trustworthy and dependable ally. It is a technique which my grandmother and her predecessors sometimes had recourse to, and I believe it always worked well."
The plot is blatantly lifted from Lysistrata by Aristophanes, and is just as enjoyable. Basically, the women of Atlantis decide that the men have acted up enough so they're going to withold sex from them, and convince the women of the other worlds in the database to do the same in order to break them and show them who really has the power. And oh boy, does chaos and hilarity ensue. The Beckett/Cadman scene near the end is worth the price of admission. Abount 5800 words, and good for solid laugh out loud moments.
So... what are some of your favorites? Post in a new post and share your love with the rest of the class :)
