    Can 22 pages of LJ comments be wrong? synecdochic is also a popslasher, and her stylistic bravura is in evident in this well-titled story, a futurefic character piece with Rodney McKay as a college prof. synecdochic's plot about his classes--typically McKay difficult--and mentoring weaves with asides about the events that happened on Atlantis (Why did McKay leave? Where is Sheppard?), but the story is about life, love, loss, and ambition. Under it all flows a current of emotion, all tied to Atlantis, that threatens to tug McKay--and the reader--into either happiness or devastation. This is quite simply a beautifully written piece that's about important things ("To say it was all worth it trivializes something so profound he knows he will never have the words to articulate it"), with a McKay changed and tempered--believably so--by his experience.

    [ "SGC finally stops calling him by December. Rodney celebrates by writing a final exam for his relativity class so difficult that it reduces four students to tears in the exam hall. Upon reflection, he decides to be merciful and offer partial credit." ]

    I originally read this on LJ, ended up on synecdochic's site http://www.kekkai.org/synecdochic/
    So glad they transferred their works to ao3, as their other stuff is also stellar

    Summary

    Giving Gritty unfettered access to the internet seemed kind of like introducing a twelve-year-old boy to the internet and hoping he wouldn’t search "boobs:" if you came back in fifteen minutes, you’d find the kid had finished with searching "boobs" and had moved on to searching for the most depraved hardcore pornography imaginable. Claude didn’t want to know what they’d been hoping Gritty wouldn’t search.

    "So. What did he… find?" Claude said, dreading the answer.

    Annie looked towards the ceiling. "Have you ever heard of fanfiction?"

    Summary

    The water was crushing, pummelling Shisui's broken form, even as it swept him further and further from Konoha.

    And then Shisui woke up.

    It's two months until the day he died. Two months to change the current of his life, of his Clan, of his village. And Shisui has no intention of letting history run its course.

    Summary

    when eighteen-year-old, post-war Sakura is thrown back into her tiny, pre-Academy body, she makes a decision. she'd had a childhood once already, and this time, she's more interested in Not Dying when the inevitable shit hits the proverbial fan. so she will work harder, care less, kill more, and smile when she's done.

    and hey, if she ends up reviving an extinct nature transformation to attract the most corrupt, power-hungry man from her timeline, all the better for her, right?
