Title: More than Words
Fandom: SGA
Pairing: McShep (why yes, I did need another pairing like a hole in the head) 
Rating: G
Prompt: Unspoken over at [livejournal.com profile] mcsheplets 
Summary: When Rodney loses his voice, John fills the silence.
Note: I'm in total panic mode over my contribution to [livejournal.com profile] sg1_jubilee, but this bunny bit me on the way to the grocery store.  It was small but fierce, so I gave in.

More Than Words

John had always known that Rodney hid behind his words. Somehow, he had failed to notice that he did it too. Apparently being the King of Denial extended beyond the obvious. 

 

Occasionally, John had fantasized about an Ancient device that would render Rodney temporarily mute. Who didn’t? But the reality was awful. There was a void where Rodney’s words should have been, and the vacuum their absence created pulled a stream of confessions out of John. One sad look from Rodney across the chess board and everything he’d tried to keep hidden for four and a half years came spilling out in a rush, anything to fill the horrible silence and make Rodney smile again. 

 

When he was finally empty of secrets and heartfelt declarations of devotion, John gathered his courage to look up. And discovered that Rodney hadn’t lost his words at all; they were all there in his magnificent, joy filled eyes. Finally. Me Too. Always.

I loved it, and you're so sweet for mentioning my icon. *beams with pride* It's all canon. The moments I chose show John jealous of Dr. Keller in 5x09 Tracker, John jealous of the woman who flirts with Rodney in 1x16 The Brotherhood and when Rodney names a whale after Samantha Carter in Echoes 3x12... *blushes at the lengthy explanation* thankyou and feel free to take if you want. *hugs*
