10:27 am - Character Profile: Jennifer Keller


First appearance:
S3 SGA First Strike Last appearance: S5 SGA The Enemy at the Gate  


Career: Jennifer was a prodigy who entered medicine and became a doctor at an early age seemingly at the expense of developing a social life (S4 SGA Quarantine). She was appointed Head of Medicine to the Atlantis expedition when Carson Beckett was killed (S3 SGA First Strike) believing initially that it was a temporary position.

She is a passionate doctor who aims to save her patients; she worked with Rodney on the experimental nanites that saved Elizabeth Weir (S4 SGA Adrift) and worked hard to save Rodney himself when infected by a Pegasus parasite (S5 SGA The Shrine).

Initially lacking off-world confidence (S4 SGA Missing), Jennifer has worked to improve her fighting skills (S5 SGA Tracker) and has grown in confidence in her role, enabling her to deal with situations such as body-swapping with a thief and the Wraith assuming control of the Daedalus. 

Family: From Chippawa Falls Wisconsin, Jennifer’s father is still alive but her mother is not having died a few years before.     

Female Friendships: She supported Samantha Carter during her leadership (S4 SGA Doppelganger, Trio) and made friends with Teyla (S4 SGA Missing).

Romantic Others: Jennifer initially seemed very interested in Ronon Dex, coming close to kissing him when the two were trapped in the infirmary together during a city-wide lockdown (S4 SGA Quarantine). However, she developed romantic feelings for Rodney McKay, and after accompanying him to a conference, they officially became a couple (S5 SGA Brainstorm).        

AU/Other Versions: Deceased Jennifer (S4 SGA The Last Man), Doctor Jennifer Keller (S5 SGA Vegas).

A few fic recs :)
Night Ops by sholio
Summary: When a rescue mission goes FUBAR, McKay and Keller find themselves racing a ticking clock to save Sheppard's life on a lethal, frozen world.
Devil and the Deep Blue Sea by sholio
Summary: John is dealing with his teammates' love lives just like any other emotional issue: by ignoring the situation and hoping it goes away. But when a mission gone wrong traps John, Rodney and Jennifer a thousand feet beneath New Lantea's ocean -- injured and out of touch with Atlantis, with the clock running down and a mysterious enemy in pursuit -- they're either going to have to work out their differences ... or die trying.
Figurative Hell and Literal High Water by tipper_green
Summary: Rodney's desperate to save his team, and Keller's just trying to keep up, on a planet where hurricanes can last for days.
The Black Lake by tipper_green
Summary: Things go belly up (because they always go belly up) on a rescue mission to save an SGA team stuck deep underground and running out of air.
Waiting For My Real Life To Begin by toomuchplor
Summary: It had changed so gradually with Jennifer, was the thing. Rodney couldn’t pick a moment when he’d felt the balance shift from “this is fucking awesome” to “wow, I’m really middle-aged”. [note: McShep fic, but I love the characterization of Jennifer... no evil ex cliches.]
(and shorter:)
pay off by siriaeve
why rec'd: Written for [info]non_mcsmooch, with a very cool take on the prompt and also on a quite popular fanfic theme :)
Osmosis by siriaeve
“Smushed,” Rodney said and blinked at her—and really, it’s not like it’s that surprising. Jennifer might have drawn the line at eating raw gr’tak with Teyla, but she grew up in rural Wisconsin. She’s an old hand at dealing with bugs. “Is that a medical term?”
this valley of dying stars by frith_in_thorns
Summary: The flames are beautiful. It's almost worth it, seeing this.

part 2

Never Bend with the Rainfall by monanotlisa
Jennifer has never seen Teyla flee the scene, any scene, but no other phrase comes to mind. It's Jennifer's turn to blink because her eyes don't adjust that fast to the Teyla-shaped hole in the air in front of her. At least she took the gift flowers with her. That's good, right?
Uphill by penknife
Summary: It's bad enough being trapped in a cave. Jennifer's pretty sure that in the Pegasus galaxy, things can always get worse.
Homecoming (Where The Heart Is Deep Beat Mix) by poisontaster
Summary: Home is where the heart is.
Head High to the Finish by cinaed
Summary: The thing is, Jennifer really doesn't like Zelenka. At all. (Rodney/Jennifer/Radek)
A Time to Heal by wildcat88
Summary: Circumstances and a three week journey put everything in a different light.
Start From Now by bluflamingo
Summary: Jennifer nearly turned down the Atlantis expedition when she got offered it...
Oral Transmission by sobsister
Summary: A conversation between Dr. Keller and Colonel Sheppard goes slightly awry, for both parties.
Story of My Life by busaikko
Author's summary: Bravery doesn't always come in action-hero packaging. (Or, my take on the end of S5 *cue evil laughter*)
