Story Notes:AU, Mentions of Major Character Deaths, some strong language in parts

1. Introduction by water4willows [ - ] (185 words)
Okay, this is a story unlike anything I've ever written before. It's AU and set 20 years in the future and after the end of the show. I don't often write AU and tend to stick to stories that could easily be episodes so I hope this gamble pays off. This is very angsty and light on the Shep Whump which is different for me too :). I have no beta so all mistakes in this work of fiction are mine and the Stargate: Atlantis show and her characters are the property of MGM. All I can lay claim to is my passion for the show and the original characters within this story.
