1. My yuletide story last year turned into a murder mystery, which I had a lot of fun writing. Wouldn't a murder mystery set in Atlantis, with Rodney and John playing off each other (Rodney's analysis and John's hunches) be really cool? Not sure I could pull it off, but it would be cool trying.
2. I have forgotten where I read this or who said it, but someone bemoaned the fact that, while there are a lot of stories about characters becoming disabled in one form or another, usually temporarily, there are very few AUs where they start out that way. (In my Sentinel AU The Measure of our Youth, I did have Blair be disabled from before the start of the story.)
So. SGA AU. Rodney is Deaf. John becomes his interpreter when his original one can't get clearance. Maybe?
Also, ideas for research?
