We, the Sparky Army, decree 2008 to be the Year of the Spark. We pledge to post a new sparky story or chapter of a sparky story every day from January 1, 2008 to December 31, 2008. Though the Powers that Be have removed Elizabeth Weir from the regular cast of Stargate Atlantis, we feel that she remains an integral part of the show, and that the relationship between her and John Sheppard is too obvious to be ignored. We hope that you, and anyone might happen to read these works, agree.

And if that isn't official enough for you, we don't know what is. Seriously, guys, we're just trying to have some fun--and show TPTB that Sparky is the way to go. So sit back and enjoy the 366 stories coming your way!

A/N (kuroima): The newest member of the Sparky Army here. This is just a short drabble and takes place in the Rising.

The Beginning

By kuroima

John was taking fast and huge steps towards the elevator that would bring him back to the ground.

"Major!" Elizabeth Weir joined him.

"This is much to take in but please think about the offer." She seemed to expect him to answer but he shot her just a look. "I know this is confusing and unbelievable but I know how you're feeling. I was thrown in the deep end just like you."

He glanced at her and she smiled back at him. He felt sympathy for this woman even though he didn't knew her and they shared just this one thing.

"It's a great opportunity-"

"I will think about it." He cut her off and stepped out of the elevator.
