Title: Finding Home
Artist: strivaria

Beta: darkmoore
Challenge 15
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis

Disclaimer: Stargate Atlantis doesn’t belong to me, neither do the characters. This is a work of love and I don’t make money from it.
Summary: 16 year old John Sheppard nearly drowns in a storm. And maybe he really did drown, because what comes next can only be a nightmare. Or a dream. One of the two, really.

Artist notes: Thanks to ca_pierson for taking my ramblings about what I saw in the APOD photo we chose and turning it into something wonderful. It was great working with you.
Author’s Notes:Well. This fic was quite sneaky. It was really supposed to be short, I swear, but apparently I can’t do short, so this is what I got. This really was entirely strivaria’s idea. I just took it and ran with it! Thanks to strivaria for inspiring me like that … with her idea, with her art and with her kind comments. Thanks to darkmoore for beta-ing and helping me through the parts that need medical knowledge, but especially for her pushing me to make this story what it is. Also, she told me I should make sure to say that apart from John, Rodney and Dave everybody else is the age they are in the show. All this was inspired by this Astronomy Picture of the Day!
