Second to None by Madison [NC-17]
[ - ]

Summary: He wasn't the one they wanted. He was the one they *had*. (Sequel to Second Best--it really helps to read that first).

Second Verse by Madison [NC-17]
[ - ]

Summary: Atlantis needs a Rodney McKay. They just don't know that yet.

The warnings are here mostly for safety. This story is darker than my usual fare, but I still firmly believe in the happy ending. There is the death of a major AU character off-screen.

Summary: Not everyone gets a second chance...

(This story is a sequel to Second Chance and includes spoilers for S5 'Vegas'. It would probably make more sense if you read Second Chance first, if you aren't familiar with that story.

Second Sight by Madison [NC-17]
[ - ]

Summary: He never sees these things coming...

As with all the Second stories, there is the implied death of a canon character in an alternate universe, but I do believe in happy endings! Written as a stand-alone story, but more fun if you're familiar with the series.
