So for my 'Yay women celebration I'll give you a rec, from the same journal (which is lazy like woah. I'll try to do better next time).
But really, this is an epic story that explores how Teyla grew up to be the awesome woman that she is, through her childhood, Atlantis and beyond (and yes the others are there too). A story that doesn't treat her as a long suffering warrior princess, but a woman, a leader and a trader. A story where she doesn't bugger off with Ronon while Rodney and John get into trouble. This is Teyla center stage and she's beautiful.
Teyla's story (or 'stars gather, dreams pour into your pillows') by mirabile_dictu : on her site or AO3 (what does that 3 stand for anyway?)
