John thinks that maybe it’s really the hair
that he goes for. Dark-headed women seem so much more… grounded to him than blondes. Not that he discriminates against
blondes. He likes blondes, he’s had a lot of fun with them in the past. But dark-headed women?
women are his vice.
A man has to have his vices. It’s important for his sanity. And John has always known that
dark-headed women do it for him. They’re just so… well, he can’t quite put his finger on why they are just
‘so’ but he knows that they are.
Redheads are just evil.
So, naturally, when he met Elizabeth Weir,
he pretty much had a heart attack.
He’d served with women before. Many times. But those women wore shapeless
baggy green fatigues and had their hair up in tight little buns.
Military. Uniform. Unoriginal.
Well, when they met her hair wasn’t quite long enough for a tight bun. It is now, but she doesn’t
put it up often. He didn’t even think, at that time, that she would be able to get it in a pony tale. And the uniforms
that they wear on Atlantis are many things, but they are *not* shapeless.
John had been privy to glimpses at her body
over the first few months that they’d been there. The curve of a breast that he wasn’t allowed to look at. The
shape of her hip that he shouldn’t be noticing. Was it wrong of him to know that her stomach is as flat as he thinks
it is? Probably. But he doesn’t care.
Elizabeth is just so…
When he used to go to
sleep at night, he didn’t like to think of her before closing his eyes. If he did that, then it was inevitable that
he would dream of her. Nothing sordid – well, maybe sometimes a little sordid – but he would dream mostly of her
There’s a tiny wisp of it that no matter how much gel or mouse or other feminine-y crap she puts in it,

He also thinks he is whipped.

He would try to reflect innocence in his tone if he thought
she’d buy it. He knows she wont and he loves her just a little more for it. “Stop what?”
you’re doing with your fingers.”
“What? This?” And he does it again anyway. “Why?”
I’m trying to sleep.”
She’s grumpy when she doesn’t get enough sleep. More so if she doesn’t
get sleep *and* she doesn’t get sex. “Is it annoying?”
“Well, no. But I know you’re doing
it and I’m concentrating on that instead of trying to sleep.” She’s smiling against the bare skin of his
chest, he can feel it. She thinks she sounds like an idiot.
He thinks she’s adorable.

“Playing with my hair is a pre-emptive strike?” She snorted. God, she

“Against the headache that you’ll get next.”

She kissed his chest. “I love

And she was just so…
