Author's Note: My first fic for SAWS. (YAY!) When I knew that I was going to be doing something for the event, this fic was my first idea that I started to write, but I went through a ton of others (especially this past week), trying to find something that I thought was better. I got a lot of good ideas from friends, but in the end it would have just taken too long to write in the time that I had left, and so I decided to finish this, and do those fics when I have more time. (but thanks to my friends for the ideas!) But about this fic...
It happens in the same universe as my "Forever" series (which I mention briefly later). It was inspired by the lyrics below, which I do not own; and the characters father below, which I own even less than I own the lyrics ;). lol. I hope you enjoy it anyways. :)
Lose It All: Prologue
I wanna lose it all for
If it's the last thing that I
The only thing that really matters now
I wanna lose it all for you!

Ronon staggered back, feeling like all of the air had just been sucked out of him. No! How could this have happened?
"What do you mean she's gone?" he gasped, unable to do more than repeat the words that McKay had just uttered, and unable to force any more volume from his throat than a whisper. "What happened to her?"
"It all happened so fast..." Rodney regretted now that he had been the one to let it happen, that he had to be the one to break the news to the Satedan. "There was nothing wrong when we got to that planet, honest! We were there for hours, and nothing went wrong. But then suddenly all of these masked men came out; and they gave us the whole "surrender or die" speech. And then suddenly Teyla was telling me to run, and she was fighting them. I saw her get hit over the head hard enough to kill her; I wanted to go back, but she had told me to get back, and, well..." he ran out of explanations. "I'm sorry, Ronon. If there was anything that I could have done to save her--- and I mean anything--- I would have done it. But she was already dead." He sighed. "I'm sorry."
"No," Ronon said simply. Rodney started, taken aback by Ronon's blatant... wait, what had he meant by that?
"Look, I understand that it takes time to get over this kind of thing--- and I did just dump a whole load on you at once--- but I really hoped that you wouldn't hate me-"
"She's not dead," Ronon said firmly.
"What? Look, I just said, I know that it's hard to accept; but I saw them kill her! They crushed her skull!"
"She's not dead," Ronon repeated. "I would know if she was. She isn't dead until I bring back a body to bury... and I'm gonna rescue her before it comes to that."
"Believe me, I appreciate your attitude; never give up and all that. But even though it's hard you need to accept the fact that... Ronon?" The Satedan was walking away, no longer paying any attention to his team-mate. "Ronon, you can't go back there! If those guys are gone I'm sure they took her too; and if they are still there they'll kill you too!"
"They won't kill me," he called back over his shoulder. "Because I'm gonna rescue her, and I'm gonna bring her back."
A/N: Sorry that was so short. I wanted to start the story out with a bang... a brief bang. But keep reading, please! (and be nice, I'm really nervous about this fic...) ;)
