    Summary

    Herald John shena Tale'sedrin is the King's Own, the highest Herald in Valdemar, but it all means nothing when his King is killed in a senseless accident. John sets out on a journey of self-discovery very damn reluctantly, leaving Rolan behind. He is more running away than running to, and it's his good fortune that he meets one Harold Finch. Harold is one of the famous horse-loving Ashkevrons. Unfortunately, he dislikes horses, and he's been on a self-imposed guilt trip for years. When he spots John on the road, he can't find it in himself to leave him behind, and John goes with him, but only until he can disappear into the mountains. That's his plan, but John has a few surprises in store. This is Valdemar, and that means chance and fate are all part of John's destiny.

    Great crossover! Doesn’t short either fandom & fantastic detail. Marvelous artwork as well. Story is complete, but I’m greedily hoping for more chapters sometime in the future.

    Very neat au, a kickass Harry and a complicated, enigmatic Draco. I do hope for more of their story.

    Summary

    John, an incredibly rare and valuable Omega locked in culture that controls and pacifies them, has almost given up. But, a chance registration on a DNA database gets him thrust into the middle of the Atlantis Expedition. A broken and traumatized John still fighting, a society that can't accept the truth and Rodney who just doesn't care what John is so long as he can make Atlantis light up.

    Note: This story is heavy on the hurt/comfort, deals with dark issues and dubious/non-consent and includes short flashbacks to traumatic events. Also features medical inaccuracies, societal injustice, institutional slavery (kinda) and lots of John!Whump, later to feature Bamf!john. Also it's pretty kinky in a dark way.

    Quite dark A/B/O universe and a lot of damage to John in the first chapters. Getting to Antarctica & sitting in the Chair starts a new life for John and starts changes in Rodney’s life as well.

    SGA/His Dark Materials Atlantis, with Daemons for each character. The beginning of McShep, done very believably.

    A movie take-off that’s FAR better than the original! When Rodney falls for a ‘Bad Boy’, he really does it up right. *G*
