All's Fair by dragonflower [NC-17]

[Sheppard/Todd: John Sheppard, Major Lorne, Original Character, Rodney McKay, Ronon Dex, Teyla Emmagan, Jennifer Keller, Richard Woolsey, Todd]

Sequel to 'Best Laid Plans.'

With Atlantis under repair and stranded just off the coast of San Francisco, Todd, John, and the rest of the Atlantis Expedition are forced to adjust to life on Earth. While the wraith learns to hide in plain sight, and Colonel Sheppard faces reassignments, grueling schedules, and a change in command as the SGC moves in, unseen forces align that seem bent on tearing their fragile relationship apart. But as John begins peeling back layers of betrayal that lead him closer to those he trusts the most, and Todd uncovers secrets from Sheppard's past, they discover that sometimes love – like war – is a battle that cannot be won without collateral damage.
