Hello I am looking for a beta to assist me with a story that I am
fleshing out. At this point I'm not so concerned with grammar
issues as I am with characterization, plot, etc. I'm new to the
world of Stargate as a whole and sci-fi isn't normally my thing but
I'm going to give it a go. The details of my story are below and
some of the finer details are subject to change but hopefully this
gives you an idea of what I'm working on. Thank you in advance and
have a great rest of your day -
Parings: possible Sheppard/OC
Summary: On a routine mission the team is stumbled upon by a young
woman named Rachel Shaw. Rachel claims to have been kidnapped at
gunpoint from the Colorado Springs elementary school she teaches at
and forced to drive her unknown assailant for several hours before
she managed to escape after being assaulted by her kidnapper. The
team doubts her story until she is able to produce her work ID
badge. Clearly suffering injuries from her ordeal Rachel passes out
before any more questions can be answered. Not seeing any other
choice the team takes her back to Atlantis.
The SGC informs Atlantis that Rachel had been reported missing by
her family and that the FBI has launched an investigation into her
disappearance. Rachel's car is found abandoned by the side of the
road in a dense area several hours from her home but only a few
miles from Cheyenne Mountain.
As the team tries to solve the mystery of how Rachel came to be in
the Pegasus Galaxy without the aid of a ship or a Stargate the
matter of sending Rachel home to Earth turns into a political mess.
Since she is "missing" she can not be put through the application
process for the security clearance one would need to even have
knowledge of the Stargate and Atlantis projects. Without the
clearance and the subsequent non-disclosure agreement she can not
leave Atlantis and no one can be told where she is.
