Burning Cold


Title: Burning Cold
Fandom/Genre: Stargate: Atlantis (Alternate Universe, Sentinel-fusion, Adventure)
Relationship(s): John Sheppard/Rodney McKay/Ronon Dex, John Sheppard/OMC, Rodney McKay/Jennifer Keller (minor)
Content Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Canon level violence, Explicit sex, Non-con/Dub-con (please see the notes)

Ronon Dex had long ago accepted that there are no second chances for someone with mental wounds as severe as he has. After years of being rejected as a Guide, Rodney McKay does not believe even in first chances.

When John Sheppard suddenly comes into his legacy during a mission that is their final desperate try to (yet again) avoid losing their new home and Earth’s best hope against the Wraith, the arising situation leaves very little choice for any of them. What results is something that none of them could have expected.

Author Notes:

This is a Sentinel/Stargate: Atlantis fusion. Consider it completely AU on both accounts. Some people in Atlantis who should be dead, are alive. Some people, who should not be there yet, are there. Some things might have happened differently or in a different order than in canon. And all the sentinel/guide lore is more or less modified fanon to fit into the story.

The non-con/dub-con refers to a sex scene where a character, while giving their consent, is really not in a frame of mind to give an informed consent. As this might trigger some people, I erred on the side of caution in the warnings.

I don’t own anything, except my OC’s.

Inspiration for the story:

I was going through the J/R/R tag in AO3 and bemoaning myself that a) there are so few of them, and b) most of those are short (and porn, but that’s not here or there). I realized if I really wanted a story about them I had to write it myself. I happen to love Sentinel fusions, so I started thinking “What if they suddenly found out Ronon is a Sentinel?”. And that’s where it started to expand to all directions…

  1. Hi! I loved this story on RT and I’m happy to see it here. I hope you’ll have the time and inspiration to continue, it promises to be a great fic! Even if you can’t finish it for whatever reason, it’s a great fic and thanks for sharing it!


  2. Just wanted to comment and say how much i love this story. I hope that you still feel the nibble of the muse and that there may be more to come some day. Hope you’re happy, healthy and well.


    1. Thank you for the well wishes. I have by no means abandoned this story, but I do have problems finding time to write anything, since often when I would have the possibility, I don’t have any energy for it. I’m kind of having this same problem with my Phd work, so you see where I might have some conflicting interests when it comes to my free time.


      1. Absolutely – thesis are the ultimate brain drain. My best friend is doing her Masters Thesis at the moment and her personal writing has definitely dropped off since then. SO so happy to hear that you haven’t abandoned this story. Is there some way I can subscribe so I don’t miss out when you update? All the best with the Phd!
