15 years ago, Stargate Atlantis premiered.
I’ve written an essay. I made a trope list. I run the mcshep-everyday blog. I own the official tv show companion books and several of the novels. A friend knitted me John & Rodney dolls. I own McShep zines. I read kink fic.
Once, a long time ago, I created an ebook for sheafrotherdon‘s A Farm in Iowa ‘verse, complete with apocrypha. I think I still have the word document somewhere, and it’s 550+ pages.
I’ve met some of the kindest, most generous people in this fandom. I consider them lifelong friends. We have met in real life and I’ve never felt so comfortable and understood by a group of people. I love them dearly. Every time someone moves on from the fandom, I mourn (though I understand, since it’s a closed canon now).
What I’m saying is: I love the show. I love the characters. I love John & Rodney, who are in the truest sense my One True Pairing.
These days I dabble in other fandoms. Right now it’s Good Omens. Before, it was Teen Wolf, Supernatural, Daredevil…
But SGA is always going to be my home.
Happy 15 years, Stargate Atlantis. Thanks for changing and bettering my life. Here’s to another 15!
