If you're here, it's because you have no idea what's going on here. So, a little explanation may be in order.
First of all, who am I? My name is Meaghan, but I usually go by Akiko, Keeper of Sheep. I'm 23, live in the middle of nowhere in the American Southwest, and I love The Beatles. I also love Stargate: Atlantis. I wonder if this site is a coincidence?
I'm working at the local hospital as an EKG tech, and I'll be starting college again in the spring, so I may not have a whole lot of time to update. However, if I do have spare time, rest assured that I will dedicate at least a little of it to the continued expansion of this little pocket universe I've created.
Ah, Beatlantis. I hated that working title, but when I'd found a new one, I ended up keeping the name Beatlantis for the whole alternate universe. Confused? Don't worry, so am I. =)
Beatlantis is a world in which the four lads we know as The Beatles were born and raised in the same era I was. They're a little different because of this, but still mostly the loveable lads adored the world over. Lenny, Jimmy, Geo, and Ritchie are not truly the same as John, Paul, George, and Ringo, but they are based on them. The only one who's name is different is John 'Lenny' O'Leanon, and that's just because the name Lieutenant Lennon just sounded wrong to me. =P
Aaaaanyway...in the Beatlantis universe, Lenny, Jimmy, and Ritchie are serving in the British Royal Air Force, whilst Geo (who is something of an anthropology wunderkind) is a PhD working on Atlantis. There is also an OC, Annie, who I've been striving to avoid turning into a Mary Sue. They make up Unlucky Gate Team 13, and all of Beatlantis with the exception of the yet-to-be-written Season Five focuses on their adventures on Atlantis.
They may not seem like the Beatles you know and love, but I promise, there's a little bit of the Fab Four in there! As an ongoing contest, see if you can spot all the Beatles tributes I hide in each fanfiction - there are more than you'd think!
As to the characters themselves, yes, they are different, but only as I think the changes in social norms over the last fifty years would make them different. These aren't four men born and raised in the forties and fifties, they're four men born and raised in the eighties and nineties. It may not seem like much has changed since then, but it really has, and I've tried to take that into consideration when writing this.
If you want to know more about Team 13, read on! The profiles will be updated as we learn more about our heroes (and heroine)!
The Lab Rats
There are a lot of them, and most of them aren't all that vital to the story, but if you want to keep track of them, use them in your own fics, or contribute a fic to Beatlantis using these characters, feel free!
