Stargate Atlantis Fanfiction


By Tipper




HI! AND WELCOME to my small site of Stargate Atlantis Fanfiction!

Just as an FYI, I write Gen and Team fics, so it's mostly action/adventure, h/c and humor. 


Oh, and just for kicks – Camp Sheppard is near Mount Rainier.  Seriously, I did not make this sign up...


But it's good to know, right?

(I can't remember what’s under the arm)



October 1, 2009 – No new stories, I'm afraid, but I do have some updates.  Astridv, the incredible artist, painted a beautiful illustration for the Black Lake, and, man, did she nail the setting! It's really lovely, and I've put it with the story.  Also, I won a couple of awards!  Whoot!  First, "Figurative Hell and Literal High Water" won an Isis Award for "RodneyMcKay/Jennifer Keller – Other" (I don't know what "Other" means, but since this is really an action story, I'm taking it as the too-cool-to-be-defined category).  I'm totally jazzed about it, since romance is so not my forte, so I was really happy to be both nommed and to get an award!  Second, the 2008 Stargate Fan Awards came out, and people kindly voted for three of my stories!  Namely, "Night Highway," my little foray into McKay's childhood, won for Gen McKay Angst, "Time to Save The Galaxy, Rodney," won for Gen McKay Episode Based, and, coolness upon coolness, "Standing on the Shoulders of Giants" won for Gen Character Drama.  Yay!  Thank you all so much for nominating me!




Stargate: Atlantis and its characters, including the setting, are the property of Showtime/Viacom, MGM/UA, Double Secret Productions, and Gekko Productions. I own nothing and no one.  No infringement intended, no profit made or even dreamed of.  Thank you to the amazing writers, producers, actors, crew and directors who bring it to life.




Thank you everyone so much for recommending and voting for me in the Stargate Fan Awards! I'm totally flabbergasted, overjoyed and humbled!  Seriously, HUMBLED. I've put the two general ones below. If you click on it, you'll got to the awards site, where you can see the other winners, and, I hope, the folks who were all nommed.  All the stories are so amazing!

TO IMMORTALITY – [One Page] [Live Journal]

This is a missing scene (best description I can think of without giving it away) to the episode "Sunday".  Do not read this unless you have seen the episode.  January 2007.



Chases, explosions, head wounds, twisted ankles, oceans and deserts serve as the backdrop to a rescue mission that doesn't quite go as planned.  In other words, a typical Atlantis mission o' mayhem. Team fic. March 2007.

Things go belly up (because they always go belly up) on a rescue mission to save an SGA team stuck deep underground and running out of air.  Team Fic with Keller, but the girls are the ones who have to save the day. May 2009.





I go through phases where I like to make collages.  Then I got Vista, lost picture it, and hate Microsoft so much now, it’s painful.  So, no more collages for a while, but I still have my old ones HERE.  At the very least, they're pretty pictures!  Oh, and if you're on dial-up...well, I was too lazy to make the pictures small.  You'll probably need a lot of patience to download the page.  Sorry!
