SGA thematic list: Werewolves and other wereanimals

This is a SGA thematic list (i.e. not recs) for stories in which an SGA character becomes or already is a wereanimal. 'Wereanimal' here is not all that strict, but refers to any supernatural animal-shapeshifting as long as is not another kind of magical animal category, such as centaur!fic or dragon!fic. It is sorted by character, which kind of wereanimal is listed with the story.

  1. More than one character is a wereanimal.
  2. John is a wereanimal.
  3. Rodney is a wereanimal.
  4. Ronon is a wereanimal.
  5. Radek is a wereanimal.

These are not recs, but a thematic list. I'll link gen stories as well as all kinds of pairings, but at least initially it's biased towards pairings I read, e.g. I don't read John/Elizabeth so I'll need others to point out stories from those corners of fandom fitting the list criteria to me.

If you want a story added, your own or others, please send me the title, author, pairings (if any), summary, a public link (i.e. no f-locked or community member locked LJ entries and the like), whether it's a WIP, and under which topic it'll fit, so that I can list the story.
