SGA ficlet - The Loss of Words
Pairing, etc: McKay/Sheppard
Prompt: 68. Lightning
Word Count: around 850
Author's Notes: written for kyrieane in thanks for her response to my icon comment challenge and fanfic100 challenge, Lightning prompt (11 down, 89 to go) Set about six months after Watching Earth Rodney’s POV – but not really a sequel. Slight spoilers for Season 2.
It hit Rodney the same way most of the great breakthroughs did, not in a series of logical steps but all at once, a jolt, a lightning strike to the cerebral cortex.
