Why You Should Read This:
This is a brilliant read for post-Trinity. It’s whumpage for McKay, yes, but it really highlights the issues with that episode and subsequent handling of the storyline.
It does start off with McKay/OFC, but honestly that isn’t the point of the story, and it end with McKay/Sheppard.
