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 the 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!

Author's Note (Mama Jo): Many, many thanks to Steph for covering for me on my anniversary, along with a BIG e-hug. I hope you all enjoy this minor little bit of fluff that occurred to me as I was showering and reminiscing about my own days as a new bride. Thanks for reading!


Midnight Musings

ASoliloquy

By

Mama Jo


"Could have been Mensa." I've

Heard him tell Rodney that

On more than one occasion. And

I know it's no idle boast, but

The actual, literal truth. He really

Could have been Mensa.

Still, though, as I stand

Here, in the dark midnight;

My tongue smarting from where

I accidentally bit it; my face

Scrunched against the urge to scream.

Still, I can't help but wonder--

If he could have been Mensa, then

Why, why, why can he not

Remember three simple things:

Always squeeze from the bottom--

Hang the paper roll flap forward--

And never, never, EVER

Leave the seat up at night!
