363 words here and 574 in my SGA_Santa for a total of 937... not bad. If I can do 1000 words a day I'll be doing very nicely.....
I had 1079 on day 2 in the SGA_Santa and I didn't spam you with that info.
And the sg_rarepairings list is out with my new story there..... ::headdesk:: more I don't have time to read...
Sheppard jogged over to the mound, "We all set?"
Since Rodney had zoned on the session he really didn't remember what they had done but he knew it was special. There was something about Sheppard that put him into that perfect throwing space that he rarely encountered. For one thing, it really wasn't safe during a game when he had to be aware of everything going on around him -- batted balls, runners on base, and directions from both Zelenka and Caldwell. Here in the safety of the practice mound he could afford the luxury of that throwing nirvana.
"Yes, we're all set," Rodney agreed.
"Half an hour of cardio," Teyla directed. "I'll settle for jogging around the field three times," she offered.
"Twice!" Rodney counter-offered automatically.
"Aw, come on, McKay. I'll run with you," Sheppard put in before Teyla could answer. "I'll take it easy on you."
"You're not supposed to be on her side!" Rodney protested then gave in. "I hate to jog," he explained.
"We'll get it done and then you'll be all set," Sheppard eased him out into the field, setting off at an easy pace. "So, what's there to do in this town?"
"Umm..." Rodney thought. "Don't know what you like. Tell me what you're looking for."
Sheppard shrugged. "Music? Movies? Good place to eat? Oh, and I need an apartment in a couple of days, the team won't keep me in a hotel too long."
"What kind of movies?" Rodney asked, curious.
"Sci fi, action, that sort of thing," Sheppard answered.
"Oh, don't tell me," Rodney rolled his eyes. "You liked Wall-E."
Sheppard laughed. "What's not to like? It was fun!"
"Well, if you ignored that all of the science was made up then I guess so," Rodney allowed.
"The science wasn't that bad," Sheppard retorted. "And it's a kid's movie, not a documentary!"
"But if you don't teach kids how things work the right way from the beginning, they won't know the difference," Rodney answered.
Sheppard glanced over, "Okay, you're right there!"
