title: i didn't ask for much (you gave me everything you had)
pairing: john/elizabeth
summary: this is in an AU where Atlantis was destroyed, and the cast of Hawaii Five-0 somehow found their way to the Pegasus galaxy. Steve, Kono, Danny and Grace are from 5-0. Gabby is my own OC. i really do hope to write this whole thing out some day.
disclaimer: i own nothing.


They had no way of knowing when Christmas was anymore.

Ordinarily, that wouldn’t have bothered John so much. But they were all in desperate need of cheering up lately, and now they were on a planet covered in a soft blanket of snow. Grace’s eyes had lit up at the sight, and the group had unanimously agreed to stay for a few days and celebrate the holiday as best they could. They all said that they were doing it for Grace, because the little girl had lost so much already, but they could be honest in the quiet of their own hearts. They needed this.

Though options were limited, they made do. Ronon and Teyla hunted for most of the day, bringing back enough meat that they could have a feast. Danny, Steve, Kono and Gabby played in the snow with Grace, making snow angels and snowmen and having snowball fights. Everyone joined in on the latter, splitting into teams and enjoying the laughter that had been absent from their lives for the past three months. John managed to get snow down the back of his shirt from a sneaky Cadman, but that was mostly Elizabeth’s fault. If she hadn’t looked so beautiful with snowflakes in her hair and dancing on her eyelashes, he wouldn’t have been so distracted.

Not that he really minded.

Once dinner was finished, everyone settled down into quiet groups, enjoying the fire and the peace. Grace was fast asleep, leaning against her father. Ronon and Teyla had already retired to their tent. John noted with a smile that Steve and Kono were practically sitting on top of each other as they talked in hushed voices - it was only a matter of time for those two.

But mostly his attention was caught by Elizabeth. She stared into the fire with a look that was at once hopeful and sad, and he couldn’t resist the urge to sit down next to her, letting their bodies touch. If she made a comment, he figured he could use the cold as an excuse.

She didn’t question it.

“It’s not quite Christmas,” he said, his voice apologetic. “No tree. No presents...”

“Good food and good friends,” she interrupted quietly. “I’m not sure we could ask for anything better right now.”

“True,” he conceded. She hadn’t moved her gaze from the flames. “You okay?”

One corner of her mouth curled upwards. “Better than I expected.” She finally turned to look at him, the fire somehow still dancing in her eyes. “Is it strange that I miss Atlantis more than Earth?”

John shook his head. “No.”

She let out a breath that sounded almost relieved at his response. “It could be so much worse, John. Look at the people we’ve managed to keep safe. How far we’ve come. We could have lost everything.”

I could have lost you - again, he thought.

“You didn’t, though,” she replied.

John started slightly, her words catching him off-guard. Had he actually said that aloud?

“Elizabeth...”

She reached out and touched his face gently, fingers tracing the curves there. John found himself unable to move, unable to breathe, his eyes locked with hers. Elizabeth gave him a small smile and leaned in, pressing a kiss to a spot right next to his mouth.

“Merry Christmas, John,” she whispered.

His own words came out in a broken sigh as he moved his mouth to cover hers, everything but the sound of the fire crackling and the warmth of her body falling away. It didn’t matter what planet they were on, or where they would find themselves tomorrow. It didn’t matter that they were homeless and on their own. They were an island together. And for the first time since Atlantis had been destroyed, John thought that maybe - just maybe - they would make it.

It was enough.

Title: It Never Happened
Pairing: John/Elizabeth, Ronon/Teyla, Cadman/Lorne (SGA)
Warning: This is a weird one. I apologize for that. Not even sure if I'm going to post it to the Sparky comm because I'm not sure how I feel about it. And sorry for the weird spacing issues.
Disclaimer: Nothing belongs to me.

The basic premise of this fanmix is that John lost Elizabeth to the Replicators, but he somehow got her back (around Dear Agony/Breathe Again). And if anyone really wants one of the songs, let me know and I'll email it you. Links are to YouTube videos, NOT DOWNLOADS)

Track Listing

Hymn for the Missing - Red

Tried to walk together
But the night was growing dark
Thought you were beside me
But I reached and you were gone
Sometimes I hear you calling
From some lost and distant shore
I hear you crying softly for the way it was before


Come Home - OneRepublic & Sara Bareilles

Everything i can’t be
Is everything you should be
And that’s why i need you here
Everything i can’t be
Is everything you should be
And that’s why i need you here
So hear this now

Come home
Come home
Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long
For so long
And right now there's a war between the vanities
But all i see is you and me
The fight for you is all I’ve ever known
Ever known
So come home
Come home


This Woman's Work - Maxwell

I know you´ve got a little life in you yet.
I know you´ve got a lot of strength left.
I know you´ve got a little life in you yet.
I know you´ve got a lot of strength left.


I should be crying, but I just can't let it show.
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking


Of all the things we should've said,
That I never said.
All the things we should've done,
That we never did.
All the things we should've given,
But I didn't.



No Prisoners, Only Trophies - Steve Jablonsky

Instrumental


How it Ends - DeVotchKa

And you already know
Yeah, you already know how this will end

There is no escape from the slave catcher's songs
For all of the loved ones gone
Forever's not so long

And in your soul they poked a million holes
But you never let em show
Come on, it's time to go

And you already know
Yeah, you already know how this will end



Terrible Things - Mayday Parade

She said, "Boy can I tell you, a terrible thing?"
"It seems that I'm sick and I've only got weeks"
"Please don't be sad now, I really believe"
"You were the greatest, thing that ever happened to me"

Slow, so slow
I fell to the ground, on my knees

So don't fall in love, there's just too much to risk
If given the choice, then I'm begging you'll choose
To walk away, walk away, don't let her get you
I can't bear to see the same happen to you

Now son, I'm only telling you this...
...Because life, can do terrible things



This Bitter Earth/On The Nature of Daylight - Max Richter/Dinah Washington

This bitter earth
Well, what fruit it bears
What good is love
That no one shares

And if my life is like the dust
Mmm, that hides the glow of a rose
What good am I
Heaven only knows

Lord, this bitter earth
Yes, can be so cold
Today you're young
Too soon you're old

But while a voice within me cries
I know heaven will answer my call
And this bitter earth
Ooh, may not be so bitter after all

But while a voice within me cries
I know heaven will answer my call
And this bitter earth
Ooh, it may not be so bitter after all, ooh



Algiers Ferry - Harry Gregson-Williams

Instrumental


Ain't No Sunshine - Lighthouse Family

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone.
It's not warm when she's away.
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And she's always gone too long anytime she goes away.

Wonder this time where she's gone,
Wonder if she's gone to stay
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home anytime she goes away.



This is How We Like to End - Atomic Tom

This is how we like to live
Sometimes it takes so much to give
Sometimes we're broke 'til we learn
We blame the world until it turns
But is that how the magic started?
Or is this how we're broken-hearted?
Is this what it takes to try?
We don't always get to win
This is how we like to end

So put your conscience in this cradle
And let it live until we're able
And it's not up to you and me
It's just how we like to mend
This is how we like to end

This is how we learn to breathe
And it's not up to you and me
Takes a moment to begin
This is how we like to end

This is how we live life
This is how we say goodbye
We can't say it by ourselves
So we tell it to a friend
This is how we like to end


Dear Agony - Breaking Benjamin

I have nothing left to give
I have found the perfect end
You were made to make it hurt
Disappear into the dirt
Carry me to heaven's arms
Light the way and let me go
Take the time to take my breath
I will end where I began

Leave me alone
God let me go
I'm blue and cold
Black sky will burn
Love pull me down
Hate lift me up
Just turn around
There's nothing left

Somewhere far beyond this world
I feel nothing anymore



Breathe Again - Sara Bareilles

It hurts to be here
I only wanted love from you
It hurts to be here
What am I gonna do?

All I have, all I need, he's the air I would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still I'm searching
All I have, all I need, he's the air I would kill to breathe
Holds my love in his hands, still I'm searching for something
Out of breath, I am left hoping someday I'll breathe again
I'll breathe again



Heavy in Your Arms - Florence + the Machine

I was a heavy heart to carry
My feet dragged across ground
And he took me to the river
Where he slowly let me drown

My love has concrete feet
My love's an iron ball
Wrapped around your ankles
Over the waterfall

I'm so heavy, heavy
Heavy in your arms
I'm so heavy, heavy
Heavy in your arms

And is it worth the wait
All this killing time?
Are you strong enough to stand
Protecting both your heart and mine?

This will be my last confession
I love you never felt like any blessing
Whispering like it's a secret
Only to condemn the one who hears it
With a heavy heart

I was a heavy heart to carry
But he never let me down
When he had me in his arms
My feet never touched the ground


Perfect - Hedley

I'm not perfect but I keep trying cause that's what I said I would do from the start.
I'm not alive if I'm lonely, so please don't leave. Was it something I said or just my personality?
I'm not perfect but I keep trying cause that's what I said I would do from the start.
I'm not alive if I'm lonely, so please don't leave. Was it something I said or just my, just myself?
Just myself? Myself? Just myself?

I'm not perfect, but I keep trying.




Gotten - Slash & Adam Levine

And I've been saving
These last words for one last miracle
But now I'm not sure
I can't save you if
You don't let me
You just get me like I never
Been gotten before




Anywhere But Here - SafetySuit

Is this a natural feeling
Or is it just me bleeding
All my thoughts and dreams
In hope that you will be with me or
Is this a moment to remember
Or just a cold day in December?
I wonder
If maybe
Maybe I could be
All you ever dreamed, cause you are

Beautiful inside
So lovely and I
Can't see why Id do anything without you, you are
And when Im not with you
I know that its true
That Id rather be anywhere but here without you



You Be The Anchor - Mayday Parade

Tell me once again
That you'll love me to the death
And should I die, you swear that you will come for me
As I fade away, you reach out your hand
And please don't let me go



That's How Strong My Love Is - Alicia Keys

I'll be the water you need in the desert land
Just to let you know you'll always have my hand
I'll be the woman you need to be a better man
So you'll always know

Through the shake of an earthquake
I will never fall
That's how strong my love is
Like a ship through the storm
We can risk it all
That's how strong my love is



Tangled Up In You - Staind

You're my world
The shelter from the rain
You're the pills
That take away my pain
You're the light
That helps me find my way
You're the words
When I have nothing to say

And in this world
Where nothing else is true
Here I am
Still tangled up in you
I'm still tangled up in you
Still tangled up in you

You're the fire
That warms me when i'm cold
You're the hand
I have to hold as I grow old
You're the shore
When I am lost at sea
You're the only thing
That I like about me

How long has it been
Since this storyline began
And I hope it never ends
And goes like this forever
