Tendency to Swarm (Stargate Atlantis)

TITLE: Tendency to Swarm
FANDOM: Stargate Atlantis
LENGTH/RAITING: 189 words, PG
WARNINGS/PAIRINGS: None.
SUMMARY: What if the Asurans had been less warlike and more parental in their dealings with Atlantis...


The Ancients built the stargates, but it was the Asurans who unmade them. Address by address they walked the galaxy, watching as their swarm of nanites methodically tore the giant rings to dust. Until, at last, Atlantis stood alone.

You're too young, they said as the silver cloud consumed the ring, when what they meant was too powerful. The gates weren't meant for you, you have your own sandbox, stay out of ours.

And they left, content with destroying that final link between the galaxies and leaving the city to starve, forgetting just how stubborn Humans are.

Seven years later Atlantis built its first working gate.

Ten years after that, there was a ring on every planet, every moon, every orbit from Atlantis outwards. Instead of one small city and its few hundred inhabitants, now they faced an empire. Atlantis poured its knowledge into every world it ringed, ruthlessly assimilating populations into a united whole.

A year after that, the Ausrans watched their world turn to dust.

You started the war, the Humans said, before the last bombs dropped, we're just ending it.

They knew better than to underestimate.

Brilliant, sweetie.

Awww, thanks! ^_^ It still needs some polishing, but I've learned I need to get the rough down and on paper before I forget it. ^_^;;

Yay for stubborn humans and cold vengence! *grin*
oooh, very intriguing.
I apparently have rather bloodthirsty Muses. *eyes Muses warily* So many post-Apocalyptic scenarios, so little time... ^_~
This is really, really cool.
I'm glad you liked it! ^_^
