The Physics of Flying
J and R
steammmpunk
For anotheratlantis regular AU prompt #48:
Rodney is a physicist studying bird flight, John is... also somehow involved with birds. Park ranger? Ornithologist? Guy who scales cliff faces to put tags on peregrine falcons? Guy who brings owls into classrooms? Regardless, he clearly thinks birds are cool because they can fly. Their paths cross, there are digs about Rodney's sunscreen and John's bird's-nest hair, John knows all the good spots (interpret that as you will), etc.





Thanks to ileliberte for the most wonderful betaing.


PURE BLOODY ADORATION! This is poetry. This is--almost Japanese, (which is a high quality of endearment in my book.) Does this story exist??? I want this story to exist!!

Doooo iiitttt. You know you want to. And she deserves it!

This picture has birds in it, therefor it is for me.

Oh oh oh, this was my prompt, and this is SO GORGEOUS! Oh it's so mystical feeling, and adfladsfkj equations morphing into birds, and John's fingers against his lips, and the soft glowy colors, eeeeeeep it's just completely beautiful. Wow wow.

Wow, thank you so much for your kind words! I'm thrilled that you liked it, what with being your prompt and all, and it was so interesting prompt - I just went with it. And thank you for recing it too! EEEEEE. *beams*

Holy crap . . . I - just don't have the words to express how beautiful this is! the way the worlds smooth into one another, the way that that equations become birds - I just . . . *flails* I'm incoherent with admiration!

Oh wow, thank you so much! I'm really glad you liked this. And thank you for the rec too, you're so sweet! <333

Oh, beautiful. I love the Escher-like meeting of physics and birds there, and the colors, oh the colors!

*beams* Thank you so much, I'm just glad this worked for you!

*stares* I both hate you and love you at the same time (despite my feelings of raging inadequacy). I would really really love to have this as my desktop image--do you have the image at a larger size?

DITTO--I already tried to make this a desktop, and it starts to fuzz when it's bigger: please, please??

Fanart typically isn't my thing, but this, this is amazing. I want to crawl into it.

Thank you so much! I'm just glad you liked this one, despite fanart not being your cup of tea.

oh this is gorgeous! i adore the soft warm light on rodney's arms and john's face and the equations turning into flying birds!! it's just so soft, peaceful, and lovely! and the bird nesting in his bird nest hair! ♥

Oh, thank you so much! I'm really glad you liked this. John's hair would make a great bird's nest - I just can't resist the joke. Heh.

Oh, oh WOW, that is so, so beautiful. I love the gentle colours, the luminescence in the bird feathers, and the escher-esque thing you've got going on with the numbers and the birds, and it's, it's, like a visual metaphor or something, wow. And the light on Rodney's face and John's arm, and the sweep of feathers against the black line of John's trousers. It's really gorgeous.

Wow, thank you so much! I'm just really glad you liked this. And thank you for the rec too, you're very kind. <33

Dude, you totally didn't go for any of the colors I suggested, and can I just say how glad I am that you didn't? Because I am, very glad that you didn't do the solid color stuff. This is absolutely gorgeous, so airy and light and mmmmm, beautiful. Lovely.

Thank you so much! You're so kind. And um, the birds are kind of white and the bird on John's head has pinkish feathers turning into white wing, so I think I sort of did. Partially. *looks sheepish* And really, you're like queen, no make that empress of beta or something. Seriously, you rock.

asdlkjf! Oh, this is wonderful! Equations turning into flight and feathers and beauty. So lovely.

*beams* Thank you so much! I'm really glad you liked this!

Wow, thank you so much! I'm glad you liked this.

Oh wow, thank you so much! I'm incredibly flattered to hear that, since I adore your arts. I'm just glad you liked this!
