Winnowing Seas (Stargate Atlantis)

TITLE: Winnowing Seas
FANDOM: Stargate Atlantis
LENGTH/RATING: 100 words, PG
PAIRING/WARNINGS: None
SUMMARY: Shared lessons of the seas.


The Athosians weren't used to sailing, but they learned. The Tau'ri taught them, from simple laws of buoyancy to complicated constructions, a love of winds and waves that resonated across cultures.

Heavy ships, deep keeled and broad brought in deep sea catches; some safe to eat, some useful in their poisons. Modified canoes, outriggers skimming across the waves ran messages from sea to shore. Slower than jumpers, but anyone could fly. And every boat they built could be sunk with a single pull, scuttled deep at the first sign of Wraith.

The Atlanteans weren't used to Wraith, but they learned.

Wonderful.
I'm glad you liked it! ^_^

I seem to be developing a theme around the dissonance between the two cultural viewpoints... *ponders*
Nice comparisons :D Eventually, they learn. It probably takes us stubborn Tau'ri longer than the Athosians, though. xD

Glad you liked it! ^_^

Sometimes I think that's the biggest disconnect between the two cultures, the fact that the one has evolved under constant predation. Both sides understand the concept behind 'for the good of the many', but I think only Teyla's people really believe, you know?

I luff SGA, makes me get all meta some days. ^_^
