Summary: The new psychologist meets with John to talk about his hallucination.

Dr. Ziegler stared calmly at John over the top of his frameless glasses. John gave him his best blank smile and waited.

Ziegler broke first. "So, John. We're here to discuss your recent experience with the alien entity."

John nodded easily. "Mr. Woolsey informed me that he'd set up the meeting, yep." He smiled again.

Dr. Ziegler tapped his pen a little against his desk. "Tell me about what happened."

"Did you read the report?" John asked smoothly.

"Of course I did, yes." Ziegler gave him an equally bland look. "However, Dr. Heightmeyer indicated in her notes that it was usually worthwhile to discuss the specifics with you separately. She seemed to find your meetings quite enlightening." John's eyes narrowed, but the smile never wavered. "Given the nature of this latest event, I feel it would be helpful for both of us to discuss what happened in your own words."

"The report was my own words," John's lips twisted into a brief smirk. "I haven't let Rodney write my reports for me in ages."

"John," Ziegler's voice was soft with reproof. John sighed.

"Fine, fine. The entity recognized me as a potential threat, and so elected to distract me for a time by appearing in a hallucination. That hallucination was chosen from my mind as one I would see as a threat to Atlantis and would therefore keep me busy." He tapped a finger against his leg restlessly. "My mind elected a scenario where I was captured and tortured and ultimately lost my hand, before the entity revealed itself and released me from the hallucination."

"Your mind."


"Do you view your mind as somehow separate?"

John frowned at him. "No."

"So, *you* chose the nature of your hallucination."

"Sure." John grinned at him brightly. "Held out for quite a while, too."

"Does that make you feel proud?" Ziegler's eyes glittered. It suddenly struck John that Ziegler reminded him of Regis Philbin. Since Regis Philbin reminded him of a demonically possessed Santa Claus, the realisation was in no way soothing.

"Uh. Proud?"

"That you withstood the torture."

"Not really, no."

"Why do you think that is?"

John tilted his head and gave Dr. Ziegler a long, considering look. He could feel his lips twitching, wanting to grin, but he resisted. "I... I'm not entirely sure. What do you think, Doctor?"

Dr. Ziegler rubbed his chin thoughtfully. "It is possible that you were acting out a subconscious need."

*Aha*. "A subconscious need?"

Ziegler's eyes sharpened and he leaned forward. "Do you need to be punished, John?"

John's eyes widened. "You know, Doctor, I'll bet that's exactly it." He stood held out his hand. Reflexively Dr. Ziegler stood as well and took it, even as he spluttered at the sudden end to the interview. "Thank you for all your help. It's much clearer to me now." He left the office, Ziegler open-mouthed behind him. The door to the doctor's office closed firmly. John grinned and clicked his radio. "Doctor McKay," he said formally. "Please meet me at my quarters in fifteen minutes. Doctor's orders," he added at Rodney's indignant mutter in reply. "Oh, and Rodney?" His voice dropped into a low growl. "Bring your belt."

HEEEEEEE! That's great! I love it!

Thanks! I just had this image in my head of a skeevy doc saying "Do you want to be punished, John?" and it made me laugh. Glad it made you laugh too!

::hee, hee:: I could really learn to like that Doctor. Very nice!
Nov. 30th, 2008 05:00 am (UTC)
I sure like where his words went!
Nov. 29th, 2008 06:37 am (UTC)
wow. That's awesome therapy, even if the doc doesn't quite realize it...
Nov. 30th, 2008 05:00 am (UTC)
Oh, no kidding. I'll bet that's a kind of torture John could take for hours and hours and hours... *fans self*
Nov. 29th, 2008 10:19 am (UTC)
ROFL! Loved it :-)
Nov. 30th, 2008 05:01 am (UTC)
Thanks! I'm glad it worked, cause it kept trying to go all serious on me but I just wanted a laugh. :)

Haha! The way John takes over the session is so John. he would definitely do that.

I really wish they showed us John with the psychs the way they've shown Rodney. I have the feeling John would have great fun manipulating the sessions for his own amusement. :)

*snickers* Oh, John, like you need a shrink to tell you you like kinky sex. You bad, bad boy. (And I'm sure Rodney feels the same, except the ep left me feeling some serious UST between him and Radek, so I do need fics like these to convince me that McShep is what happened after. Awesome job, btw!)
Nov. 30th, 2008 05:04 am (UTC)
I read something on kink_bingo that essentially suggested that John is into just about every kink ever come up with ... and I have to agree!

The Davids did a great job, didn't they? Halluci!Radek had that half-smile on his face the whole time he was messing with Rodney, and it was *awesome*.

Thanks! I'm struggling right now a bit so the kudos really really help. *hugs*
Nov. 30th, 2008 11:36 am (UTC)
*hugs back hard* I know I don't give you enough praise for you fics since I'm always too busy squeeing about something that happens in them, but I do love your ficlets, all of them, and if I forget to tell you that, well, if you see me comment on a fic that totally means I ♥ it like nobody's business, OK? (I don't comment on just any fic, you know. ;-)

I love the way you review, especially since you do it so much! So I'm thrilled with the level of praise you give me. :) Thank you so much!

This is awesome, dude. I love the way John deals with psychologists and how for a second the guy thinks he has him... and then it all just goes so wrong. :D

Absolutely adore the ending, of course, HEE! What an image. Maybe you should write the bit after...? :)

Know what the best bit of this is though? The new psychologist's name! Ziegler! What a stroke of genius! How did you come up with that? :D

Hee! Just kidding.

Thanks for sharing, Skin.
Nov. 30th, 2008 05:07 am (UTC)
Ziegler is indeed the best name ever for the skeevy psychologist. I'm so glad my faithful fic!stalker was able to come up with it, especially since I am still waiting for the 'other ways Rodney goes insane'... *cough cough*

Thank you! Don't you just KNOW John would screw with them? I think Rodney would too (at least, early Rodney would), but he'd be doing it out of irritation whereas John would just do it for FUN.

Nov. 30th, 2008 07:09 am (UTC)
Hee hee! Brilliant!
Dec. 6th, 2008 03:04 am (UTC)
Thank you!
