Category: Slash Fandom: Stargate Atlantis Pairing: John Sheppard/Rodney McKay
Author's Summary: The boys get kidnapped, John gets them out. Told by five people he doesn’t kill in the process.
Reccer's Notes: Bloody and disturbing, this had me on the edge of my seat, riveted to the screen, while simultaneously wanting to look away. Made all the more effective and chilling by the use of outside perspectives. John’s rage is a great and terrible thing.
Quote: The other man, the one with the gun and the deceptively friendly voice, shoves Cottle forward hard, drawls, “I said, get to work.”
He wants to protest that he doesn’t know where to start, that he needs an operating room and x-rays and nurses. He turns his head, finally looks at the man that’s been holding a gun to his head for the last ten minutes, and feels the words die in his throat. He’s had his life threatened before, enough times to know that there are men who mean it, and men who don’t. This man means it.
