mmm, cake! -- Hth's Rodney/Ronon tipsheet

mecurtin asked for a list of my favorite Rodney/Ronon fics, and, well, yeah!

Straight-Up Rodney/Ronon Slash Stories

Bridges
Mirabile Dictu
non-explicit, sweet story. 1000 words of Rodney, Ronon, and the San Francisco skyline. My favorite part of this story is how lightly Ronon teases; I'm totally weak for stories where Ronon is flirtatious and has a sense of humor, oh, yes.

Cake Walk
Aelora
pretty straightforward; you can't go wrong with this pairing if there's food that leads to sex. marythefan and I use "mmmm, cake!" as code for "Rodney and Ronon are totally hot and should so be doing it!" (what, you don't all have little time-saving devices for that kind of thing around the house?), so I always get a particular giggle out of, well, cake! (Also, because there's not a handy and pleasant-sounding pairing name for these two, it's a handy in adjective form: to wit, "Allies is a totally cake episode!" Maybe y'all can help me make it catch on! It's no dumber than the Sheppard/Weir people taking up "sparky" for no clear reason whatsoever.)

Contrary to Expectation
Anna S.
a little bit funny and a little bit totally hot; what's not to love? There's something about Ronon smelling people that, guh. Just, guh.

Cuffs
Kharessa Bloodrose
there's not enough hot in the world to tell you how hot I find this story. I have a huge, huge kink for wrist-bindings, and the sex in this story is amazingly poetic and fiercely hot and very character-driven and unexpected, and I just lack the words to tell you how much I cherish this story.

Kept By Ourselves in Silence and Apart
The Spike
this is a pretty hard-core scary story in a lot of ways, where Ronon and Rodney weather a stint as prisoners togther; Spike doesn't spare you on the torture sequences, but it's very powerful and not shocky or gratuitous in any way, so please do try it. The emotional bond they form by helping each other survive it is intense, and intensely gorgeous, and even if you're a sensitive plant, I really urge you to steel yourself and try this story, because it couldn't be more amazing.

Lingual
Nestra
chocolate, sex, and a smooth sheen of humor over the top -- this is a newish pairing in the grand scheme of things, but already, that's the classic formula for Ronon/Rodney, and for this exact reason. Note perfect.

Orbit
Maverick
a bar on Earth; Ronon's drunk, Rodney's the designated driver. Man, I love when Rodney has to be the one who shows restraint -- particularly when he's rewarded for it in the end. The character work here is excellent, and the sense of contained longing is melty and makes me very happy.

Silence
Kharessa Bloodrose
an interesting fraught relationship, all different textures of smooth and prickly, hot and thoughtful and with a lot to chew on. This is one of those stories that gets its charge from the ways they don't quite connect just as much as from the ways they do, and both ways work just fine for me.

Team Spirit
Ms. Gordo
This story makes me giggle like a lunatic every time I read it -- one perfectly timed joke after another, shot through with that off-kilter, predatory thing that Ronon does so well and the babbling hysteria that Rodney does so endearingly in response. Delightful, delovely.


Threesomes & Multiple Pairings

Pull Back to Reveal
Sabine
I recced this everywhere I could think of when it first came out, and I'm thrilled to have another bite at it. This is a fanastic Rodney/Ronon/Sheppard that runs a full gamut of emotions, with great Rodney voice and a very earthy, hot Ronon and a cool structure, and I just can't say enough good things about it.

Somesthesia
Kajikia
enzyme porn, yay! Rodney/Ronon/Teyla, which is the perfect threesome for this phase of canon, because there's no one around they can break. Also, so so hot, dear God. The only thing about this is that I would have loved for it to be twice as long, but that's as much compliment as complaint.

The Vow
Mirabile Dictu
very hard to classify, which is an automatic compliment in my book. This is mostly a story about how Rodney navigates and deals with relationships -- not just in a romantic sense, but how he copes with people. In a sense it's as much gen as anything, and it's a lot McSheppy, but it also draws each of Rodney's other relationships beautifully, including a mind-blowingly sexy and shockingly intimate and fascinating Rodney/Ronon interlude. I just don't know exactly how to tell you what this story is, so all I can say is, try it, really.

Gen & Preslash

Defining Theories
Xanphibian
one thing I love about this pairing is that I can totally see Ronon actively listening to the stuff that everyone else tunes out from Rodney, because so much is new to him. This story hits that perfectly, perfectly. It's sweet as hell.

Object Lesson
Meg
there are a couple of style issues with this story, but I still recommend it highly. Rodney is trying to get ready for a physical exam, and Ronon helps him train. Along with some profoundly sexy sweaty-fighting-men content, it's a really, really different and fascinating approach to Ronon's philosophy of war and beliefs about life.

Treed
Sara
so they fall off a cliff and get stuck in a tree, and they spend the night like this, in a fabulously funny and on-point and touching gen-type bonding story, with a strong element of tight, well-considered Ronon backstory. In my head, there is a big, slashy sequel. Be that as it may, it's a thing of beauty and a joy forever just exactly as it is.


Drabbles, Microfic, Snippets

Anna S.
can I just say how much I adore people who can write a story in three sentences? I totally cannot do that. This is Rodney not jumping on the Ronon=Sex bandwagon, absolutely not! By which we mean, totally yes.

1300 words, untitled
The Spike
I adore this reflective, "middle-aged" Ronon, and I love the earthy, low-key softness of the sexual relationship. This is a take you don't get every day, and it's not long enough and yet at the same time, perfect to the very word.

gahhhhh. Holy moly! Rodney/Ronon/Sheppard porn snippet that hits you like a fucking bolt of lightning. I was deprived of the powers of speech for, like, minutes. I love the internet so very much.

You brought all these Rodney/Ronon fics *together*.

It's not often an action will bring me to tears, but...well...I'm looking at the list of stories...and I'm getting misty eyed.

You've, like, earned your wings with this.

Thank you.
