Ho yay. :) Blame neevebrody for re-posting an awesome photo from Joe Flanigan's twitter on daily-flan, but it reminded us tattoos show up more than once in SGA, and with different meanings.

oh, I think that would be cheating, wouldn't it? picking a prompt just so I could write a fic? I was just kidding about that. I will write that fic someday anyway, though, mind you. it's too delicious an idea.

Ah well, I hope you do. I had a glimmer that perhaps I could finish my John-as-tattoo-artist-AU, but then thought AUs might not be acceptable. Anyway, with my writing speed these days, it might have taken to the 5th amnesty.

It's a great prompt, though, with all those connotations and I look forward to seeing what folks make of it.

ho yes, AUs, Crossovers in Stargate, Fusions are all totally welcome. I will eagerly wait for that, it sounds awesome. :)))

I'm going to push through to finish a new chapter to 'Live a Little' 'verse, which is an AU that elderwitty and I came up with. John and Lorne are tattoo artists, Rodney and Parrish are scientists of some type (we're vague) and we're introducing Ronon. We planned it out 10 days ago, and now I ave reason to d it now! :)

Exactly! That's what I was trying to get out last night, though my sleep-addled brain wouldn't let me articulate. John as a tatto artist has so many freaking possibilities!!!!
