Five times Cam thought about transferring to Atlantis (1/1)  
Title: Five times Cam thought about transferring to Atlantis
Author: somehowunbroken 
Fandom: SGA/SG1
Pairing: John/Cam
Word count: 382
Rating: G


1. When John goes. It's a fleeting thought, more than anything else; Cam's busy getting certified in the F-302s at the time, and when John mentions he's got a new posting, somewhere incredibly classified, Cam gives him a look that he hopes conveys to John everything he wants it to convey and kisses him on the temple. They don't say goodbye; they never do. It's later, after John's packed his single duffel and left, that Cam wishes he could just go along with him.

2. A few months later, when he's recuperating in a hospital so classified he isn't sure which it is, with SG-1 coming to visit in fits and gasps. O'Neill offers him any posting he wants, and he's so tempted to open his mouth and say find Major Sheppard, I just want John, but he's not quite drugged enough to let it come out.

3. When they reestablish contact with Atlantis, Cam's just getting his bearings at the SGC. He wants to go, though, wants to hop on the Daedalus and make that trip and arrive in time to save the day; better yet, he wants to tag along with Everett and his Marines, and he knows it must be love if he's willing to subject himself to that. He's close to asking for it, even; he stops himself, somehow, and later isn't quite sure why.

4. When Atlantis leaves the San Fransisco Bay and heads back to Pegasus. It's been great, better than great, having John just a few hundred miles away rather than thousands of light-years. He doesn't realise how great it's been, having his partner around for a year, until he's suddenly not there, until it's back to carefully worded emails every two weeks in the databurst. It's the first time that Cam hates the fact that John has Atlantis, because it's something that John loves. It's different than how he loves Cam, but it's no less powerful for it. Cam hates to be jealous of a City, but there you have it.

5. 22 December, 2010.

He doesn't, not yet, but he fills out the paperwork quietly and has it on hand at all times. He'll wait until it's official, until everything is squared away, but that's all. He's not waiting any longer than that.

One story at a time, you are slowly converting me to this pairing.
Kisomehowunbroken on January 18th, 2011 02:24 am (UTC)
Yay!

*considers this a victory of some sort*

Glad you liked it :)

Love these! Feeling a little sad for Cam. Give those boys a happy ending! :) These guys are by far my favorite pairing - thanks so much for writing so much of them!

edit: alright, probably could have done without the repeating "so much" all over the place, but I was just so happy reading your fic! any semblance of proper English simply fled! lol...

happy ending! :D
6. 15 February, 2011.

Cam's got his bags packed - well, bag, really; he doesn't need all that much. He's been reassigned to a position that Landry had to create. It's a favor layered on top of another favor upon another, and it's pretty much everything Cam's earned and saved in his military career, but it's worth it from the second he steps through the Gate in Pegasus and drops his bag and crushes John to his body. John smells like standard-issue shampoo and spicy aftershave and a little like gun oil and the sea, and Cam just rests his face in John's hair for a minute, because this is what home smells like now.

I sooo love happy endings :-)

number 5 was close to one, but the sequel was the icing on the cake :-)

Thanks dear! I'm glad you liked it - I wanted to put #6 is originally but kept myself to the five :)

Was that a stealth SGU reference I saw there? Five is my favourite.
Kisomehowunbroken on January 31st, 2011 04:35 am (UTC)
If there was a stealth SGU reference, it was a flyby accidental one - but I'll take credit for it :D And thanks! I like five as well :)
