Summaries, oh woe...

I have posted almost all my old SGA fic to AO3 throughout the day and I've gotten as far as Straight as a Circle, arguably one of my better-known fics in the fandom.

My original summary for this fic is really bad (most of my summaries are, I admit). I shudder whenever I see it quoted on Delicious -- so I'm asking for help. Does anyone care to pen a little summary for this fic that might be better than the original one? It's too late to change all those Delicious bookmarks but a revised summary might give new readers a better idea of what the fic is really about.

The original summary: John Sheppard wakes up straight. No, really, that's pretty much it. One day, about two months ago, I thought, "John Sheppard is *so gay* that he couldn't be in a 'woke up gay' story. He'd have to wake up straight instead." And that is what happened here.

*facepalm* No, really, that is what I wrote. Sigh.

I would, of course, credit the person who wrote the summary. :D?

Rating: R
Pairing: John/Rodney
Length: 780 words.
Spoilers/Warnings: Follows up on Straight as a Circle, and probably doesn't make sense without it.
Summary: "Hands off my sister, you pervert," says Rodney, but his heart's not in it.

A/N: [livejournal.com profile] rogue_planet asked for "what happened next" for Straight as a Circle. This could definitely be expanded into a longer fic, and maybe it will be!

Ooh, thinky thoughts...

[livejournal.com profile] cathexys posted a really interesting essay on some fannish tropes that seem to be preoccupying the hivemind the last little while, and included some thoughts on my latest fic, Straight As a Circle. The essay is worth reading, what with all the genderswap fic that seems to be going around, and I highly recommend it!

Anyway, I got all excited and responded to the post, forgetting that I'm not supposed to do that on [livejournal.com profile] thecuttingboard (I'm like a puppy, okay, I get excited and I jump around and might occasionally pee on the floor if I'm not reminded about outside!) Not wanting to let my ramblings be lost to the ages, I'm reposting some of my deleted comments here. Feel free to skip, as I'm mostly doing that annoying writerly thing where I ramble on about what I *meant* to say versus what seems to have been said.

John = happy gay man? )

John is just very gay indeed )
