Summary: Thrown into the midst of another galaxy, Elizabeth Weir leads her expedition on an exploration both of Pegasus' worlds outside of Atlantis and deep in the heart of the Ancient's city. Stranded, cut off from Earth and surrounded by danger, all the team have is each other to sustain them. Their leader had a will of iron, competent and brilliant, but aloof; her compassion is unwavering, steadfast, but she remains distant, as if behind a wall.

One man reaches out, recognising the danger of her loneliness and seeks to bring her into the comfort of the small community, the only people that may well be hers for the rest of their lives. But as he comes to know more about the steely willed, cool eyed diplomat, Colonel Jonathan Sheppard finds himself pulled in deeper than he's ever been before, and far more than he ever intended.

With the scrutiny of their small knit community, Earth's distant but ever-present watchful eye, and danger forever on their horizon, can they overcome their differences or are they doomed to fail before they began?

Story Notes:
This is a fanfic to match the Sparks Ingnite film trailer for a Sparky flick on YouTube. Bear with me, its pretty much completely AU although some of the scenes are the same, several missions have been rewritten and reordered to fit with the trailer sequence.

The End Notes of the chapter include the time index of the video and the scene I am alluding to.

The video is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHtwu93ROp0
