The team were meeting with some people they had no cause to treat as a threat (I don't think). The leader of the community asked, "Who is your leader?"
John stepped forward and said, "That would be me."
Where upon the leader of the community pulled out a weapon and shot him. The fic then said (and this is about the only thing I remember clearly). And just like that. John Sheppard was dead.
I wasn't in the right headspace to be reading anything like that at the time. I was shocked and backpaged out of there in a hurry.
Only it's been bugging me and I want to know why and I want to know what happened next. And I want to know if it really was a death fic or if somehow John revived/rose from the dead/haunted Rodney/whatever.
Does anyone know what story that is?
Found - thank you. And it is a really great story. Nicely timey whimey to quote another SciFi classic.
