danagryphon: (Slashing Ur Doodz)
Title: Compromised Positions
Author: Tarlan ([livejournal.com profile] tarlanx)
Artist: Gryph ([livejournal.com profile] gryphon2k)
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Art Type: Digital composite, fanmix
Characters/Pairings: John Sheppard/Rodney McKay
Summary: Art for [livejournal.com profile] mpregbigbang story by [livejournal.com profile] tarlanx. When Atlantis decides to alter the physiology of its inhabitants, John and Rodney end up a bonded pair. But John has a duty to Stargate Command and Earth. How do you choose between duty and love?
Notes: I love the emotions this story evokes of making hard choices, sacrificing happiness for duty, of regret and ultimately, realizing that love is more important than any of that. I tried to capture the flow of the story with the song choices, going from songs about love, to songs about pain and hurt, and then reconciliation. I love John's expression in the screencap I used for the mix cover, with Rodney in the background.
For the banner, I wanted to create a composite of the elements of the story; Atlantis in the background, John and Rodney both with deliciously confused looks (because I picture their relationship having a lot of those kinds of moments), with the promise of family as a fainter image.
Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] tarlanx for being a great author to work with (again!); she always puts out such wonderful stories that the art just flows so easily.
