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!

Dear Readers,

Once again, this is something entirely random that I came up with off the top of my head. I did this entirely in dialogue b/c it worked better that way. Anyhoo, I dunno if Liz is supposed to be Canadian-born, but it works for the fic. Enjoy :)

Best Regards from a Bookworm (and SGA SPARKY!! anti-Sheyla fan),

I Say "Tomato"…

"It's 'been'."


"Been. As in 'bin'. Like a storage bin."

"Beeaaa—iin…oh, forget it, John!"

"Aw come on! You almost got it that time, Elizabeth!"

"Does it really matter, John?"


"You made a bet with Rodney, didn't you?"


"Come on, John, you know you can't fool me."

"Fine. He and I had an argument over…stupid things…and I made a bet with him that I could successfully get a Canadian-born person to talk like a native-born American."


"Don't say it. I know it's idiotic."

"Whatever. Why don't we just try a different word."

"Okay…how about 'sorry'?"
