crysothemis: Missing scene kiss!

I love this community so, so much.

This is what was in my head after watching that scene from that episode that none of us saw. I blame thegrrrl2002 for making me actually write it down.

PG, 450-odd words, no warnings apart from spoilers

***Spoilers for 4x04 Doppelganger***

It was over. He'd even thanked Rodney. They could wake up, now. But Rodney was still looking at him like there was something wrong.

"Okay," Rodney said, "this is really weird."

John couldn't exactly argue with that. "You're telling me."

Rodney looked around, taking in his dreamscape with a flick of the eyes. "I thought there would be more . . . hot girls."

Right, well, it wasn't like Rodney was one to talk. "Yeah."

Rodney turned away to look around the empty gateroom again. "Huh."

It was stupid to feel exposed. So his dream took place in the gateroom. So he didn't have any hot girls. Rodney hadn't had any hot girls, either. "Rodney." Oh, crap. Wait. Rodney hadn't had any hot girls either.

Rodney's head snapped back toward him, and somehow they were standing close, only inches between them. God, right, they were still in a dream. "Rodney," John said again, and his voice sounded low and breathy and downright weird.

Rodney's eyes were wide. "We could, um, really wake up now."

"You want to?"

"Not really, no."

They were still in a dream. That was the only explanation, because he'd sworn he wouldn't do this. He'd made a spreadsheet of the reasons not to. But somehow they were doing it. They were kissing, kissing hard, Rodney's lips hot and eager against his, Rodney's arms wrapped tight around him. And oh, God, it was better than he'd imagined -- sweet, sweet slide of lips against lips -- but damn it, this was still a dream. It couldn't be real, because if it was . . .


John pulled back and leaned his forehead against Rodney's. That kind of sounded like the real Rodney. And Rodney had said it was him him. Hell, John had believed him, up until the kissing part. Because, yes, okay, there hadn't been any hot girls in Rodney's dream, but there had also been rain and a clown and a carnivorous whale, so not a lot of wish fulfillment going on, there. But if this was Rodney, the real Rodney, then he'd just . . .

"Crap," John said, and woke up.

Rodney was on the bed next to his. Alive. Awake. And looking at him. And then Rodney's hand reached out toward him -- just the barest hint of a gesture -- before falling back at his side, but John knew what it meant.

Rodney remembered. It was a dream, but it had been real enough. Which meant he'd just actually kissed Rodney, and Rodney . . . hadn't seemed to mind.

At all.

John closed his eyes and listened to the beep of the monitors, the ones that said his heart rate was going up rather than down right now.

Right. Well. So much for the damn spreadsheet.

Perfect tag for that episode we didn't see. That's exactly what I needed *g* And I love that John made a spreadsheet.

There had to be a kiss there. The camera just cut away too soon. ;)

And I love writing John as his own worst enemy.

It's my favorite episode ever, and I don't say that lightly. Just . . . *flails*. I hope you like it even half as much as I do.

Thanks for reading, spoilers and all. *smooches you*

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 03:40 am (UTC)

Perfect, perfect, perfect. I am stealing this and making it my personal cannon. :nods firmly: Thank you!

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 04:16 am (UTC)

\o/ It's certainly my personal canon, which was what I said to Grrrl, and then she said everyone should write down their personal canon, so now here I am. ;)

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 03:57 am (UTC)

I just finished watchingnot watching this episode, and this is absolutely perfect. *flails* Awesome. And John made spreadsheet! They are so - boyfriends! \o/

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 04:19 am (UTC)

They are so - boyfriends! \o/

*happy sigh*

They so are.

*makes \o/ with you*

They totally kissed, there. The camera just cut away too soon. ;}

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 04:41 am (UTC)

ahahaah, perfect! This is the perfect reaction to the "there are no hot girls!" part of the episode, for sure XD

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 04:55 am (UTC)


Sometimes I really, really wonder what the writers are thinking. Then I stop caring and just go on thinking my own slashy little thoughts. ::g::

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 05:33 am (UTC)

Oh! Of course it happened like that. This is perfect.

I might have to go off and watch the episode (yet) again now. ;-)

Sat, Oct. 6th, 2007 01:07 am (UTC)

They totally kissed, there. That's my personal canon, and I'm sticking to it. ::g::

I might have to go off and watch the episode (yet) again now. ;-)

Such a hardship! I've actually promised myself I won't watch it again until it's on TV, which is turning out to be surprisingly difficult.

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 05:43 am (UTC)

Hee! This totally happened in the episode, we just didn't get to see it. You've just nailed John's POV here, and I love the spreadsheet bit.

Sat, Oct. 6th, 2007 12:05 pm (UTC)

Aw, thanks! So glad you liked. And they totally kissed. We just saw the abridged version. ::g::

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 07:00 am (UTC)


Can someone tell me how I can get to see this? I'm in the USA and I've only seen Adrift so far. Tomorrow I'll get to see 4.02. Last year the Canadians got to see SGA months before we did, but this seems different.

Your fic is torturing me with longing to see more SGA!

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 02:18 pm (UTC)

Some of us managed to get this episode early due to iTunes screwing up and posting it on their online store instead of "Adrift," but they have since removed it. It took about, oh, A DAY for someone in fandom to convert the protected M4V format to something else. Since I have an iTunes copy, I have no idea where the unauthorized version is.

But, since this is the episode That No One In Fandom Has Seen (For Realz), it shouldn't take more than a little snooping to track down.

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 07:03 am (UTC)

awwww.... this is wonderful!

Sat, Oct. 6th, 2007 12:11 pm (UTC)

Awww, thank you!

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 07:55 am (UTC)

Good gods, you wrote the rest of the scene! Yis! Because I'm sorry, but hell yes they kissed! At the very least! And that little hand reach of Rodney's just killed me, it really did, it said SO much.

Sat, Oct. 6th, 2007 12:14 pm (UTC)

hell yes they kissed!

They did! They totally did.

And that little hand reach of Rodney's just killed me

It slayed me dead. Totally dead. I noticed it the first time I watched, which is rare for me -- usually it takes multiple viewings or proddings for me to notice such things. But it was such a fantastic little gesture. *loves on DH*

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 08:22 am (UTC)

Last line is love. He made a spreadsheet! And they say Rodney is the king of geeks.

Sat, Oct. 6th, 2007 12:15 pm (UTC)

I love John's geeky side so, so much. It just matches up so well with Rodney's. ::g::

Aw, thanks! Glad you liked both.

(BTW, the painting the icon is taken from can be found here.)

Mmmm, the perfect ending to the perfect episode we didn't see. :)

Sun, Oct. 7th, 2007 06:02 pm (UTC)


It was the perfect episode, wasn't it?

Fri, Oct. 5th, 2007 10:01 am (UTC)

Eeeeeeee! :)

Grrrl said everyone should write a tag/missing scene, and boy was she ever right. *loves on yours some more*
