Title: Into the Whirlwind
Author: slybrarian
Rating: R
Pairings: Primarily Sheppard/Lorne, background Ronon/Keller and others
Words: 66,500
Series: Dramatic Exit

Summary: In his trip to the future, John saw a possible reality in which his team died and Earth abandoned Atlantis. He managed to prevent the first, but now the IOA has recalled Colonel Carter and replaced her with Richard Woolsey, as holo-Rodney predicted. Determined to insure a better future for Atlantis and the Pegasus Galaxy, he gathers a group of trusted friends to help him guarantee Atlantis will remain operational no matter what anyone else has to say about it.

Author's Notes: Beta'd by archae_ology. This fic was started back in March and took forever to get finished. Some people may note that scenes of it are taken from previous fics, which have been reworked to fit into a new, more sensible and coherent timeline. This fic is mostly self-contained, but it would probably help to read "Spiraling Towards Disaster" first if you're curious how Sheppard and Lorne ended up together. Spoilers up through about 5x02, at which point things go AU.

This looks incredibly awesome. It's going to be a few days until I can sit down and give it the attention it deserves, but Yay! for more independent Atlantis ^_^
