Why This Must Be Read: This glorious, intense story is long. And incredibly teamy. Full of Jack and Daniel friendship, and scientific puzzles, and Teal'c sheer stubbornness, and Sam doing her best (and beyond) for her team, and Daniel taking his usual flying leaps of logic, and courage, and drama...

I love each and every one of them here. Bill Lee shines, Janet has a great cameo, and the comfort of the final scene is an absolute joy. Make sure you've got the time to read this all in one sitting, because you won't be able to stop!

Why This Must Be Read: This fantastic exploration of the Bill Lee's first encounter with SG-1 - and, particularly, Daniel - is not only a gripping story, but also a wonderful outsider POV of team friendship. I love the way Bill tries to understand the dynamics of Sam and Jack and Daniel's interactions with one another, and how so much goes over his head even as the reader comprehends SG-1's unique closeness. Add typical Jb drama and tension, and you've got a long, engrossing story of SG-1 at its best.

Why This Must Be Read: Twelve short ficlets about the team and other characters, unexpectedly waylaid by routine matters on Earth that trigger powerful reactions to anyone involved with the Stargate. My favorite ones are Bill's and Walter's (excerpted below), but these are all so powerful: the recognition that once you know what's out there, even the most mundane events can never be quite the same.

Angle of Incidents, by Belford (PG-13)

Categories: AU, Bill Lee, Ferretti, Kawalsky, original characters, drama, humor, action/adventure
Warnings: language; AU and OC character deaths; violence

Link: Angle of Incidents

Why This Must Be Read: This is a hugely entertaining exploration of a reality where the Langford expedition discovers the quantum mirror rather than the Stargate. Bill Lee, General West, and the team that went through the Stargate in the movie (minus Jack and Daniel) are the only players we can recognize; but you'll fall in love with the original characters pretty quickly - especially Dr. Alicia Tremont, who is fabulous. Enjoy the in-character humor, the camaraderie, the intelligence of the players, and the nods to realities that are more familiar to us. A fantastic, absorbing read!

Link: T is for Teal'c (or what Teal'c and Vala do for fun when the rest of SG-1 is not around)

Why This Must Be Read: Here is absolutely marvelous Teal'c and Vala, on the edges beyond the missions -- plans for future road trips, card games with various SGC personnel, watching television together. Deft characterization, lovely voices, light humor, a dash of teamy goodness, and the wry amusement of two aliens amidst these wacky Tau'ri. A truly wonderful read!

Why This Must Be Read: This is my personal classic Bill fic, retelling the two-part episode of Evolution from Bill Lee's POV. It's not just what we see on-screen, either; Aurora deftly fleshes out the story with with extra scenes and insight that brings both Bill and the story into vivid, vibrant life. It's always fun to read a good outsider's POV, and Bill is just enough on the inside - and the outside! - to give us the best of both worlds.

Long, satisfying, and full of character, Just a Scientist is a fic that you're sure to enjoy.

OMG, They Killed Science! by Redbyrd (G)

Link: OMG, They Killed Science!

Why This Must Be Read: Redbyrd is famous for her fanfic fix-its of the more outrageous canon errors. Here, in this hilarious little ficlet, she tackles the insanity of the science in Red Sky with tongue planted firmly in cheek and Bill and Sam in all their geeky glory!

At only 250-odd words, this will only take a minute or so to read, but it will leave you smiling for some time to come.


"Nuh-huh. I'm not going to try to explain this to the General." He glanced around and leaned forward conspiratorially. "Think we can get Felger to do it?"

Link: Five Things Bill Lee Learned About Daniel While They Were In Honduras

Why This Must Be Read: This delightful five things doesn't only tell us what Bill learned about Daniel during their misadventures in Evolution, but gives us the chance to learn a lot about Bill Lee, too. Whether it's why he doesn't use the SGC's gym or how he classifies Daniel's bravery or his fascination with Daniel's languages and dedication to pure science, this list shines a spotlight on both characters, and does both of them proud!


Bill knew he wasn't a particularly brave man, and he knew that Daniel Jackson was. After all, when Jack O'Neill walked into a room, Daniel smiled in greeting, instead of trying desperately to remain unobtrusive as most of the base's scientists would.

Pairing: none

Warnings: none

Link: Giant Plant-like Thing in the Night

Why This Must Be Read: Ziparumpazoo does an amazing job with Bill's mental voice as he tries to fall asleep the night after Zero Hour. Perfect characterization and delightful humor is coupled with just a little wince at the realization that yes, even the "normal" scientists that work on the SGC have to deal with the insanely bizarre on a regular basis!

Short, sweet, and slightly zany: the perfect ficlet for Bill!


Bill blew out a sigh. This was silly. He'd been offworld dozens of times. Ok, not dozens. A few. Twice, actually.
