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 --and show TPTB that Sparky is the way to go. So sit back and enjoy the 366 stories coming your way!

A/N: Just a drabble off of "The Storm" and "The Eye". Hope you like it!

Realization

He believes she is dead then finds out otherwise. And when he does he feels such a sense of relief it is almost overwhelming. And he doesn't understand it. Then Kolya almost takes her through the gate. When he shoots Kolya he feels satisfaction and when he realizes that Elizabeth is at last safe, he feels that immense relief again.

It is at this exact moment John Sheppard realizes that he loves Elizabeth Weir.

He hurries down to her. He asks her if she is ok. She shakes her head and says no. But he tells her she will be. Because he knows it's true – he'll make sure of it.
