Prompt: John gets all bugified, and I'd love to see mer!Rodney and bug!John and their relationship from someone else's point of view, please.
Richard had met Colonel Sheppard and all the members of his team before, of course. There had been the unfortunate incident with the Replicators attempting to gain control of the city, for one, and check-ups on Doctor Weir's oversight as well. So he's more than aware of them and their...special status. But he'd never really thought they were going to be his problem. He'd been wrong.
They're waiting for him in the 'gate room when he arrives. The alien, Rodney, or, well, Richard has spent hours working on the proper pronunciation of the man's name in his native tongue, is shoeless and his hair is wet. No one appears to care.
Colonel Sheppard is standing right at Rodney's shoulder, his arms crossed and his chin tilted down to his chest. Richard never knew the man before the accident, but he's seen pictures. And, obviously, he knows that the man's skin didn't used to be quite so blue. With sunglasses, a turtleneck, and long sleeves, Sheppard could pass for human.
He isn't wearing any of those things right now.
Richard shakes his head, and does his best to stumble through a greeting, wondering how soon he can retreat to his office for just a little breathing room. Rodney whistles something as Richard is walking out of the room, and Richard looks over his shoulder in time to watch Sheppard shrug, pressing himself against Rodney and clicking loudly without opening his mouth.
No one in the control room so much as bats an eye when Sheppard nuzzles against Rodney's neck and stays there, apparently content to just cuddle him right there. Richard had been prepared for that as well, but it's still startling to see the military commander of the expedition snuggling up to his husband and no one responding to it at all.
Richard shakes his head, and walks a little faster to his office. Obviously, this place is going to take some getting used to.
