Many thanks to: Bluespirit for unwavering support, constant enthusiasm, good suggestions and beta help and for just being fabulous. I really can't thank Bluespirit enough. She's been so fabulous and I seriously doubt I'd have continued writing this story without her help and support. Any mistakes are my own. Special thanks also to Flying North for discussions and suggestions. Separate thanks also due to the fantastically talented Bluespirit for the amazingly inspiring title graphic ;-). There's a standalone piece to this title graphic as well which I'll be posting with the next chapter as it goes with it so well.
Warning: BDSM lifestyle themes, graphic, loving BDSM sex, dark, possessive sex, and consensual spanking. Please DO NOT READ if those ideas upset or squick you.
Disclaimer: This is a work of erotic fiction. It is not intended to be a how-to guide for BDSM - there are plenty of sites on the net for that. The alternate universe depicted is intended to be hot and fun - it's not a serious attempt to analyse how such a society would really work.
Extract: New John grinned. "Perhaps we should introduce ourselves. I'm General John Sheppard…"
"General?" John frowned. "Damn." He wasn't sure why that annoyed him, but somehow it did. You can't possibly be competitive with *yourself* he told himself, but the idea that this John outranked him niggled at him.
"Hah – so it seems that the John in their universe has progressed a little further up the career ladder than you, Lieutenant-Colonel," Rodney said, stressing John's title pointedly, in a tone of malicious glee, holding his hands behind his back and rocking back and forth on his heels a little in enjoyment of John's discomfort.
"And this is my husband, Dr Rodney Sheppard," new John added, gesturing towards his Rodney. The look on Atlantis's Rodney's face was so comical that John almost fell about laughing there and then.
