O in Ronon

Ronon strode down Atlantis’ majestic hallways to his final destination. Food. He was starved after giving a beating to a bunch of Marines.

Having made the turn into the commissary, Ronon stood in line and piled his tray full of a variety of different foods. Heading towards his usual table, Ronon couldn’t help but overhear the bickering coming from his teammates.

“I’m right.”

“Don’t think so.”

“I know I’m right McKay.”

“Yeah right, coming from the guy that didn’t get into MENSA.”

Taking a seat next to Sheppard, Ronon shot Teyla a questioning look as he took a bite of his meat.

“John and Rodney wish to enquire as to how to spell your given name,” Teyla answered.

“Yeah buddy. So what is it? A, I, or O?”

“Why?”

Rodney pondered, “Huh. I never thought of that, but I suppose that people have been spelling their children’s names with a ‘Y’ since the beginning of the 19th century, on Earth anyway…”

“McKay. Enough,” Bellowed Ronon, halting Rodney’s prattling, “I meant ‘Why,’ as in ‘Why do you care’?”

"Sheppard had some newbie spell his name wrong on a mission report,” Rodney declared, “They added some extra letters. Sheppard the Shepherd. It has a nice ring to it. But anyway, that’s how it came up, so?”

“O-N.”

“Ha. I knew it,” Sheppard smirked at McKay.

“Yeah. Yeah. Eat it up Sheppard.”

Ronon shook his head continuing to eat his meal. He had the strangest friends, but he loved them anyway.

“You sure it’s not with an ‘A’ caveman...”

Love it. Absolutely love it.

This wasn't inspired by recent posts on fanficrants, was it?

Thanks.

It's just something that I've personally noticed for a long time in SGA fic, about the spelling of character's names, that has annoyed me.

Finally, it id confrmed! We have it from the man himself it's O-N and not any other variation. Very cute :-).

Heee hee hee heee. That being a pet peeve of mine, the misspelling of character names, I found this intensely amusing.

Thanks. It's hard for me to read a story, no matter how well thought out it is, if a character's name is misspelled.

OMG!! This is perfection! I love it!

When do you think non-Ronon fans will buy the clue?
