If you recognize it, I don’t own it! If I did, I probably wouldn’t be writing fanfiction.Summary:
While going through boxes in the attic, Cordelia finds adoption papers.Spoilers:
Buffy: Up through Lover’s Walk. SGA: Sometime season 1. The team is in Atlantis but they havevn't found a way back to Earth yet.Warnings:
None that I can think of.A/N:
So, I haven’t seen the first season of Stargate: Atlantis yet. Hopefully, by the time that the SGA people come into the story, I’ll have had a chance to watch my DVDs. I was actually going to wait to start this until I had watched my SGA DVDs, but I was bored on my lunch break and didn’t have previous chapters for any of my WIPs with me, so I ended up starting a new story. Hopefully, ya’ll like it and don’t get too mad that I’m starting yet another story instead of working on the others.A/N2:

Prologue: I’m Adopted?
Cordelia Chase gingerly climbed the stairs to the attic. She hadn’t been up here in years and decided that now was as good a time as any to go through some of the old junk up here. Besides, it wasn’t like she could really do much else after having that piece of rebar go through her stomach a few days ago at the factory; her doctor had ordered her to take it easy so as not to pull the stitches.
As she entered the attic she paused to look around, trying to decide where to start. She finally just shrugged and headed to one of the corners at the back of the room. She glanced over the labels on the boxes trying to decide if any of them looked interesting when she noticed one with her name on it. Curious, she pulled it out into the middle of the room and sat down to look through it.
Opening the box, the first thing Cordy saw was a soft pink baby blanket with her first name stitched into a corner. She gently pulled it out and set it next to her, moving on to the items underneath. There were a couple of tiny outfits, some pictures of her as a baby and some toys, as well as a small stack of papers underneath it all.
She flicked through the pictures, absently noting that she was by herself in all of the pictures, before moving on to the stack of papers at the bottom of the box. She stopped short as she caught sight of the topmost page, her eyes widening in shock. It was a birth certificate stating that Cordelia Isabella Sheppard was born on December 5, 1980 to Patrick and Diane Sheppard.
Quickly flipping to the next page, Cordy found herself looking at a set of adoption papers. She stared at the adoption papers in shock, not sure what to think. After a few minutes of silent staring, the brunette finally got up the courage to finish going through the papers. Most of what was left was medical information from the first few months of her life, before she was adopted.
As she gently repacked the box, Cordy couldn’t decide whether she was disappointed or relieved that none of the papers contained contact information for the Sheppards, her birth parents. ‘Wow, that thought is going to take some getting used to. I can’t believe I’m adopted,’
Cordy thought, ‘Though, it does explain why the earliest pictures I’ve seen of me with Mom and Dad are from when I was almost six months old and why I’ve never seen any pictures of Mom from when she was pregnant.’
Slowly getting to her feet, Cordy picked up the box of her baby stuff and slowly made her way back down to her room. Setting the box on her bed, she stared at it form a moment before sighing. “I guess the only question now,” She muttered to herself, “Is do I want to find my birth parents?”BtVSxSGAxBtVSxSGAxBtVSxSGA
So, what did you think? I hope you liked it! Sorry if I got Mr. & Mrs. Sheppard’s names wrong, like I said I haven’t had a chance to watch my SGA DVDs yet. If anyone knows what their names actually were please let me know and I’ll change it. (EDIT: I fixed John's dad's name!) Also, if John had any siblings in canon, I’m ignoring them and pretending that they don’t exist. And just to let everyone know, it’ll probably be a while before any SGA people show up in this, sorry.
Anywho, please leave a review and let me know what you think!
