AU recs update

I updated my AU recs page with the following recs:

Stargate: Atlantis

All You Can Be, by beingothrwrldly. Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. (ca. 4,350 words)
Rodney is a music teacher, John was a pilot and gets recalled for war.

The Convenient Husband (part 2 is here), by mz_bstone. Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. (ca. 12,400 words)
It's another response to the Harlequin challenge. John has to marry to inherit his share of his family's aerospace company, and his childhood friend Rodney seems the most convenient choice.

Atlantis Wasn't Built in a Day, by eleveninches. Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. (ca. 3,600 words)
What if they hadn't found a way to save Atlantis from the hurricane during The Storm? This scenario could have been played very angsty, but this story goes for a more lighthearted look at the expedition having to cope with wilderness survival.

Dead Like Them, by forcryinoutloud and Layton Colt (nixa_jane). Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. WIP
It's a fusion with the series Dead Like Me. John, Rodney, Ronon, Jack and Daniel are grim reapers.

Separation Anxiety, by fydyan. Gen, John Sheppard. (ca. 1,000 words)
This short vignette explores why John might have decided not to join the expedition.

Strangerverse, by Jenn (seperis). Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. The individual stories are finished, but the universe is still a WIP.
It's a quantum mirror story in which a Rodney from an alternate reality ends up in the canon universe, albeit at a point in the future after canon!Rodney has died. It is really interesting to see the familiar universe through the eyes of the other Rodney, and to slowly piece together all the ways how that universe, in which John was a mathematician and working as a scientist for the SGC, is different from the familiar one.

String Theory, A Concerto for Violin in D Minor, by toft_froggy. Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. (ca. 11,700 words)
Rodney is a composer/conductor, John plays the violin, other characters have minor appearances as musicians too. I'm completely clueless about music, but still this one drew me in and even made their music and performance meaningful for me.

X, by trinityofone. Gen. (ca. 3,700 words)
It's a fusion with the X-Men (movie) universe. The members of the Atlantis team are all mutants.


No, Make Something Up, by apocalypsos. Het, Sam/Jess. (ca. 3,750 words)
What if Sam had come clear with Jessica about his family while he was at Stanford?

Also, ficbyzee posted Take The Black Off A Crow, a sequel to the AU story The Compass That You Gave Me, which I had previously recced. In this universe Kon has been taken in by Dick after he escaped Cadmus Labs.

SPN rec

I just read a great Supernatural story: Muscle of Love, by researchgrrrl. It's gen, takes place while Sam and Dean are hunting some disgusting zombie-things, and I loved how it is funny while the monsters are still horrible and gross. Also Sam and Dean are great in this story. There's plenty of friendly snark, many great lines, and the story definitely caters to my slight weapons kink as well.
