"The Real Reason [Name of Character] Came to Atlantis" Challenge

It's long been a fandom trope that, despite Weir's words upon embarkation, the Atlantis expedition was made up of people too good to fire, but too much trouble to keep-- the troublemakers, the ones with ethical issues, the ones with difficult personalities, the ones who knew too much about someone in power, the unlucky ones, the American military boys only still in by virtue of Don't Ask/Don't Tell, the ones accused of a crime or wrongdoing they didn't commit but who couldn't escape the suspicion afterwards.

So, here's the challenge: Write a fic, either in comments here or in your own LJ (ETA: or whatever LJ comm you feel is appropriate) and link to it here, involving the real reason a character came/was sent to Atlantis. Don't just focus on the main characters, either! What trouble did Parrish get into that landed him there? Did Bates fail the Bambi test? What did the poor, nameless Chucknician see that got him sent to Atlantis? Was it that one-night stand that landed Grodin in Antarctica and then in the Pegasus?

Have fun! And don't worry if someone else posts a story with your character in it. It's all good.

Oh, and in case it needs said, no character bashing and no fighting over pairings. This is all for fun, not to be mean.

Please, title your comment with the character and rating and warn if there are spoilers so those remaining spoiler-free can skip it. Thanks.
