IDK, it's Hate On Rodney Week if I say it is

You know what pairing gets me every time? Ronon/Radek. There's just something about it, y'know? It has everything I like about Ronon/Rodney (Ronon) and nothing I don't (Rodney). And so, I have for you these recs:

Quick Study by helens78 (PG, 1530 words): Ronon decides to learn science and goes to Radek for help. I just love both of them in this. Ronon is clever and unsure of himself and generally a badass. For some reason, he feels really young in this story, in a really good and sweet way. Both the friendship and the slash are nuanced and lovely.

Peace Unexpected by chelle (NC-17, 2045 words): Radek is all, "Sigh, hot giant in leather pants" and Ronon is all "Fuckin': we should do some" and Radek is all "...ano" and then they dun sex. Completely direct and totally unashamed Ronon is the best of all possible Ronons.

Science, Like Nature, Must Also Be Tamed by cinaed (PG, 3785 words): Ronon, Radek, chess, and UST. Observant Ronon is observant, and precious Radek is precious. The story is from Ronon's point of view, and it is spot on. Also Teyla, though she is not in the fic for very long, is fucking awesome. If you like Zelenka, you should pretty much just read all her fic. Go on. I'll be here when you get back.

Salutation to the Dawn by Deirdre (NC-17, 26363 words): A beautiful story about loss and longing by one of my favorite writers. Also contains past Radek/Grodin, because EVERYTHING is better with Grodin. God, I love this story. I want to keep it in my pocket so that I can pull it out and pet it at intervals. Much of it takes place in the Pegasus Galaxy's answer to Japan; the story in general has an oddly Japanese-feeling sensibility, because of its alternation of really vivid, lush description with relatively spare passages. Also, it also gets mad bonus points for using the phrase "built like a brick shithouse", which may be my favorite colloquialism ever.

Go forth! Enjoy tiny genius on badass giant action!

From everybody and they momma:

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.
