stagesoflove: Five Loves (#2) - Stage Four (Atlantis)
Fandom & Pairing: Stargate: Atlantis, John Sheppard/Elizabeth Weir
Elizabeth remembered her sense of wonder that first day in Atlantis with great clarity; gazing up through glass from beneath the water line. She wasn't sure what the city had come to define for her. She didn't know what she'd do if they made her leave, now that she knew what it was like.
She loved Atlantis. Did she love him enough to risk losing her command?
John communed with the city, trying to ask for guidance. He was sure, on some level, she was sentient.
If the other woman in his heart wouldn't give him a sign, maybe Atlantis would.
