    Title: Rock Happy
    Author: ArwenLune
    Rating: None listed but given this is Generation Kill it has to be an M
    Genre: Scifi/Adventure/Military
    Status: Complete
    Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis/Generation Kill/minor others
    Pairings: minor Colbert/OFC
    Summary:
    "You want to recruit me for what? You want me to go where?"
    Sgt. Brad Colbert has been on a lot of strange missions, but this promises to be his most out there yet: Atlantis
    This is not a story about falling in love. This is a story about falling in team.
    Link: Actual fic, extended universe.

    I'm not exactly sure what to say about this. I thoroughly enjoyed both book and miniseries of Generation Kill. It was very refreshing to see something (either a documentry on real people or an original story) that didn't portray soldiers as these valiant men who never swore, were polite, and were all good Christian boys serving their country for honor and all that rubbish.

    Stargate suffers a bit from that so it was great to see some of Generation Kill's crudeness leak into that.

    I also feel the author got Colbert and the other marines down just right, and that it was written as realistically as Stargate could be.

    4/5 from me.

    Who was Brad suppose to be paired with? Because it seems to me that he decided not to try anything with Dusty and to just stay friends, but she's not an OFC. Did you mean Lee? Because I didn't see them hooking up either.

    I'll give it a 3/5, I liked it but it's nothing special.

    I assumed Dusty was an OC. Was she really just a once-mention character? It's been ages since I watched SG:A

    Dusty/Colbert happens in the EU
