    Summary

    The elevator pitch: Take the Ori, the religious crusaders from SG-1's Season 9-10, and treat them as the unstoppable villains they were set up to be. And then turn them loose against Atlantis, now crowded with the refugees from two galaxies and still trying to figure out how to support itself.

    QH is a war story, but it's mostly a story of how you piece together a jigsaw of culture, faith, morals, and responsibilities when you weren't given the tools because it is a job you were never supposed to have. It's a literal world-building as Atlantis transitions from scientific outpost to multicultural empire... while looking down the barrel of a gun. The Ori are coming and the cost of the war they bring with them is steep.

    Summary

    “Your brother is missing.”
    That’s how it starts. But now Dean’s dead, gone, or maybe he never really existed in the first place. Maybe Dean was never real, and it was always Michael. Because if Sam knows one thing, it’s that Michael is all that is left.

    S1AU tying in s4+ plot in which Dean once used to be an archangel and that’s not a good thing

    Summary

    Sequel to Oceans Rise, events taking place in France.

    *~*~*

    Adrienne’s hand slips into Lafayette’s. Holding it gently, but with a trail of relentless intent. Their eyes meet, and Adrienne presses onwards. “You live for spite, Gilbert. You enjoy it entirely too much to forget it now. My mother has ordered us to Versailles at the King’s behest, and so to Versailles we must go. But your mission, your goals, and who you are hasn’t altered in the slightest. So your arm is broken -- men have fought with broken arms before. So you feel weak -- men have recovered their strength. You have it in you. And you have a desire to be more than this. You always have.”
    Her husband laughs. “What do you suggest? That I fight a war in Versailles?”
    “I suggest that you suggest a war in Versailles. And you fight it where your enemy lives.” Releasing his hand, Adrienne settles back on her heels. “You’ve spent all this time feeling sorry for yourself, when really -- the most spiteful thing you can be at the moment is exactly that. Yourself. You’ve never been one to sit still and let the world tell you who you are, Gilbert. Don’t do it now.”
