This is a Stargate: Atlantis piece, drawn for the PaintedSpires community on livejournal. My prompt was: "John fights the Jabberwock with his vorpal sword."

This is a graphite drawing (well, three, actually), colored in Photoshop.

This is so well done!

This is great. Sheppard would totally own the Jabberwock. Very cool picture.

Nice drawing (charcoal, pencils, whatever) I haven't started Atlantis yet, I'm only on season 8 of SG-1.

If Sheppard had to face the Jabberwocky, he WOULD look like this.

OMG!!!! *chokes on cookie, spills drink on keyboard while convulsing, computer smokes, crackles then explodes sending Stargate obsessed girl flying across the room to land on the cat. Cat runs in an insane rampage, knocks over the candle, carpet catches fire and burns it's way over to nail polish stash. Kaboom!!! Rolls over and brushes blackened soot off of eyes. Crawls back to remains of computer* I'm okay!!! Wow, this is awesome!!!!! I mean, like totally awesome! Hey, was there ever a fanfic written about this? Cause I would kill to read it!
crysothemis's avatar
Hee! Thanks. To my knowledge, no one has ever written fanfic inspired by this drawing, although I'd be thrilled if someone did.
CatWink's avatar
Oh, well. I've written some Stargate fanfic, maybe I'll try a shot at a story to go along with this!:D
crysothemis's avatar
Cool. Let me know if you do, so I can read it!

In the series John sometimes tell about dangerous creatures ,but I never seen one of them. Until now.

Good work ,but I think ,John would not use a sword. Rather a gun (borrowed from Ronan of course :D )
