The Hidden Lore of Old Ocean (Emmagan/Weir, Sheppard/Weir) [PG-13]

Title: The Hidden Lore of Old Ocean
Author: havocthecat
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Teyla Emmagan/Elizabeth Weir, John Sheppard/Elizabeth Weir
Summary: The darkness enveloping Atlantis is oppressive. The city looks abandoned, but even in its emptiness, Elizabeth has the niggling sense of being watched.

Author's Notes: This is an AU partly based on themes in the writings of H.P. Lovecraft. You can tell, because the title is part of quote from his story The Colour Out Of Space. I can't help it. I love creepy ancient horror from before humans came into existence. You can also blame lanna_kitty, who asked me "If you were to write a Cthulhu mythos-ish SG story, what would it be like?" I ended up writing this because I couldn't get it out of my head until I did. At least this one is only a few thousand words long. (If you're really curious, the initial outline for this fic is here.)
