Imperfections: John and Rodney by Dasha (PG-13)

From Mei:

Title: Imperfections: John and Rodney
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis with cameos from The Sentinel and Quantum Leap
Pairing: McKay/Sheppard
Category: AU, crossover, h/c, and romance
Length: long, almost epic
Warnings: n/a 

Author on LJdashamte
Author's websites: Sentinel stories at Cascade Library and 852 Prospect, SG1 at Area 52, Highlander at http://soulcake.skeeter63.org/dasha.html, and SGA at Warithbait. (Editor's note: I only provided a link if I had one to an author's page)

Author's Summary: Both an AU and a Crossover! This is the story of John and Rodney from my TS Imperfections universe: In St. Louis in the mid 80s, Rodney is a fragile sentinel changing guides almost as often as other people change socks.

Review:
It's very easy to imagine Rodney as a sentinel (specialized in structural engineering no less) and John as the perfect guide for him; only John would have that much patience for Rodney AND stand up for himself when Rodney gets impossible. The engineering aspect of Rodney's job depicted is very interesting and so...Rodney. I admit I have a weakness for SGA AUs, and I really can't say no to a Sentinel crossover.

The second half of the story gets a bit angsty (e.g. Rodney getting sick while John's away), but John always comes back to save the day (loads of h/c!). John calls Rodney 'sweetheart' several times in the story; while this usually irks me, it didn't hinder my enjoyment of this story.
