Why This Must Be Read: Another sexy anthropomorfic - literally, this time, as Rodney's an egg and John's a sperm! Spot-on characterization again - seriously, it's great.

Why This Must Be Read: A classic that I was surprised to discover has never been recc'd in the John Sheppard category. This has fantastic characterization and great focus on John's military skill. If you loved John vs the Genii in The Storm/The Eye, this is for you. Settle in for 20,000 perfect words.

Why This Must Be Read: Yesterday's one was a short fic, so here's another. As Bironic says, this is the one where Rodney's a drill and John's a stud (no, not that kind of stud - that's Rodney in this fic - stud meaning an upright timber post in the wall of a building, since the overall category being anthropomorphised is construction materials). This story earns its M rating - it's really steamy, and not just because Rodney's bits are overheating. The boys are wonderfully in character and cracky though it is, this is hot stuff, written for the 'dirty talk' square of kink bingo.

Why This Must Be Read: They're stationery items! John's a pencil, Rodney's an eraser, and they have the very important task of making sure The Child gets educated. Of course, along the way there's attraction, a worrying separation, and romance. Also, perfect characterization - no surprise, since the story's by Busaikko. It's a short fic, so I won't do a snippet. Great fun!

Link: Before&After

Why This Must Be Read: A poignant AU, branching off from Conversion, where John retains some of his blue features and faces certain consequences that come with that. This is told from Zelenka's POV and focuses somewhat on Rodney but I'm reccing it in the John Sheppard category because, at it's core, this story is about how much John means to the people of Atlantis.

Link: But Where Would They Live series on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: Now, okay, some of you may be saying hang on, hang on, this isn't really anthropomorfic. Because usually that's two non-human things in a specific category. So far we've had two ipods and two cookies. In these two stories, Rodney's a unicorn and John's a rainbow. So where's the category? Well, I reckon the category being anthropomorphized here is symbols of fluffy sparkliness - with the rainbow tilting it a bit toward symbols of fluffy sparkly gayness. I can't do much better than the author's own summary for the first story: "John is a rainbow, Rodney is a unicorn, and the Humans are attacking. Will they work together to save the Magical Forest (Answer: yes.)" So this is crack and fluff, and the second story's curtainfic as well, and the great thing is that [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings manages to keep Rodney and John entirely in character, with plenty of snark and humor - it's a whole lot of fun.

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of the major, classic anthrpomorfics of SGA, a fandom which has a remarkable number of the genre (SGA's way wackier than SG1 in that respect). This isn't long in wordcount, but it is in overall content, with loads of images of... cookies. As with all the best anthropomorfic, it's a classic tale of cookie meets cookie, cookie loses cookie, cookie... but no more spoilers, go read the epic saga!

Why This Must Be Read: A commentfic, but it's a classic in the genre. Sparked off when Toft got a new black iPod (John Sheppod) and Shaenie said hers was orange (Rodney McPod). Read the start of the top post, then scroll down to "Theirs was no ordinary romance." It may be a short fic, but it aces the essential aspects of anthropomorfic - great characterization despite the bizarre objects our heroes are inhabiting, clever use of said objects in the service of romance and/or smut, and general hilarity.

Characters: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard, various SGA characters
Categories: slash
Warnings: Mexico City should in my view have a warning for "major character death" as that's strongly implied at the end. Also, Ronon and Teyla are bad guys in this, just so's you know. It's an older fic where asterisks are used to denote italics.
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] seperis
Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: The Atlantis Project on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: This is a non-Stargate AU, and it has lot of roadtrippy parts, but isn't wholly about the roadtrips of course. There are four stories, with Arizona setting up the premise and main plot - that McKay's a scientist whose life's at risk because of a potentially world-changing invention which Powerful Forces want to suppress, and John's the operative sent to extract him, protect him, and get him to safety out of the USA (but who is he really working for?). Cue an escape-type roadtrip down through the southern USA and into Mexico. It's full of good stuff - mistrust, paranoia, attempted assassination, last minute escapes, a love affair between John and Rodney, and extremely hot sex. The second story Borderlands, is basically a sex-scene out-take. Then there's more traveling and plot (and sex) in the third story Puerto Vallarta, and the fourth story Mexico City wraps up the plot. I found the ending satisfying because I can bear MCs dying in a good cause, but that's just me. You could always read the first three and skip the last one. As with much of Seperis's work, the stories pack a somewhat dark and edgy punch, and they're very well-written and engaging.

Why This Must Be Read:
A short but intriguing insight into Ronon's mind during "Tao of Rodney". The last line puts the story perfectly in line with the bear hug he's giving Rodney at the end of the ep. Strong character piece.

Why This Must Be Read:
Sateda was a fairly advanced civilisation and Ronon was a member of its military though it's rare that he's portrayed in a way that reflects these facts - "The Natural" does exactly this. It's a wonderfully refreshing take on Ronon and a great piece of John - Ronon friendship.

Why This Must Be Read: This fic, this fic. I mean, heed the "choose not to warn" "here be dragons" warning, as this isn't for everyone, but it's haunted me ever since I first read it. If you possibly can, read it right through from start to finish, no peeking at the end or the comments. The ending is amazing, well, the whole fic is, once you realize. It always makes me cry, and I love it.

Why This Must Be Read: Ladyflowdi says in the story's introduction that this story was written in 2006, so after "The Return" when John and Rodney think they've lost Atlantis forever. the author says: "there are certain stories all writers create that push them to become better at their craft. This one was one of them for me." It's a road trip from Cheyenne to John's old storage unit at San Antonio, in which John and Rodney grieve, and take comfort in each other. We can console ourselves with the eventual outcome, but they don't know what's going to happen. It's set before canon gave us John's wealthy business-owning backstory so treat it like an AU in that respect. Well written, and recommended.
