1. There's a drabble tree going on over at mckay_sheppard, with all sorts of lovely drabbles. I keep going over and reading, but my mind goes utterly blank whenever I try to write one. I seem to be in an undrabbley state of mind. ::sulks::

2. On the other hand, mmmchelle and I wrote some nice porny John/Rodney porn: Still.

3. GIP! Because John so absolutely is.

4.


Rodney and his tee-shirt, so happy together.



Belly-licious!



Okay, so I'll let you all come up with your own caption for this one.



Hey, look--a screencap featuring John's neck. How'd that get in there?



He's so snotty. Yet with a hint of dork. He can't quite shake it, can he?



Rodney proves once again that he's the prettiest thing ever.



Hee! Such a great shot. And she's going to hang that picture on the wall right above her bed, isn't she?



Ronon thinks Rodney is just dreamy, too.



I know, I know, a zillion people have posted this cap, but look how cute! Matching safety glasses!! They are such the dynamic duo.



And yet, John still manages to look hot.



I wish this pic was a little clearer, because I love how John keeps his hand on Rodney's shoulder, even while snarking at him.



ETA: As always, please feel free to snag the caps and do whatever with them! No credit necessary.

Love, love, LOVE the icon. He so is.

Love the screencaps, too. I can't even say which is my favorite, because they're all so good. Ronon with his eyes closed is delicious. :-)

::falls down laughing at icon:::

hee! "a hint of dork"

thank you for the caps. and yay for the story. *g*

Sweetie! Yup, John's default setting is "dork". Sexy and dorky. It's a rare talent, I tell you.

"Needs no caption" works for me!

In my LJ I posted a shot that lightened it up a bit and dodged so the hand stood out a bit better. It's less pretty, but it shows what you alluded to.

As it's your cap, I'll take it down as soon as you've let me know you've peeked/snagged.

Yrs,

Oh! Caps! ::dances:: Oh yeah, John has the snotty/dorky thing down. It's a gift, I tell you. A gift! *g* And touchies! Matching safety glasses! :-D

Is it time for season 3 yet? *pouts*

Still was amazing. Bondage/not-bondage. *THUD* Allll that energy, confined to a small space by their will alone. *drools*

It's gonna be a good Sunday. It started out right, anyway. ::beams::

John is very gifted. *g* And Season 3 is soooooo far away, it makes me sad. They start filming today, I believe, so I'm looking forward to hearing little tidbits about the new eps.

I'm so glad you enjoyed "Still"! It was interesting to have the story go in that direction, little power games between them like that, it's kind of hot, isn't it?

Hope you had a lovely Sunday!

Thanks for the pics

Thank you for the piccies! Since my buddy Feather Autant has joined the SGA Gang, I figured we'd better get an SGA fic page up on the site for her, so the one of Rodney showing John where to shoot (double entendre, moi?) was just what we needed. So thank you for that!!

*snuggles you for your effort*

::snuggles back:: It was my pleasure! I'm delighted you could use the pic, let me know if there are any others you need!

::looks at first two caps::

::blinks::

Wow, John and Rodney aren't the only ones they put in tight t-shirts.

Lovely caps, hon. I'm so glad you posted them.

I've noticed Rodney's black t-shirt is looser than this one. I'm sure DH would look at the pic and be mortified by the belly, but I think it's adorable. And the shoulders are *hot*.

And now for something completely different...by which I mean: Sorry for the OTness.

*throws up hands* I give up.
How did you make this icon?

It's so smooth, yet sharp, and sort of glowy and it looks gorgeous. Tell me, please? Before I go insane? *puppy dog eyes*

Eeep! Thank you so much! That's so kind of you. That's an old icon, but I can probably guess what I did with it.

It probably went something like this (Oh, and remember, I'm using GIMP, but I think most of the steps are the same in Photoshop).

1. Crop pic
2. Resize
3. Sharpen to about 25 or 30.
4. Adjust levels to brighten the pic
5. Duplicate pic, set top layer to overlay (or "soft light").
(5a. I probably desaturated the color on the bottom later a bit.)
6. make a new layer, fill with a pale peachy color, set to overlay (brightens and warms the pic).
7. flatten image
8. enlarge to 400%, then, with sharpening tool (convolve tool) with small-ish round brush, go over John's hair, eyes, nose, lips, and jawline. Any maybe his ear, too. This is John, after all. *g* Be careful not to oversharpen.
9. switch tool to blur and smooth out his skin--usually his cheeks, forhead, and side of his neck.
10. Set view to 100%, do final adjustment of color saturation and light levels.

I hope that helped!
