Fic: "Great and empty, true enough," says the stone

Title: ' "Great and empty, true enough," says the stone'
Author: gentle_thorns
Rating: Not very high. Maybe PG.
Pairing: McKay/Sheppard but only a little. Really, blink and you'll miss it.
Disclaimer: Of course I don't own these characters. If I did, I would not be writing fanfic and I would also have money for food.
Summary: "We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned, so as to have the life that is waiting for us." - Joseph Campbell John's mother always used to tell him that the surest way to make God laugh was to make plans of your own.
Notes: Written for Stargate: Anonymous. This fic drove me crazy and I am really happy to finally get rid of it. Thanks go to moonmip and viciouswishes for beta work. All mistakes are my own and I apologise for the places where I ignored their advice. Also, thanks to geki for help with the first few paragraphs. Title from the poem "Conversation with a Stone" by Wislawa Szymborska. It can be read here .
