Link: Four things Vala would miss about Earth if she left & one that she wouldn't

Why This Must Be Read: This is an excellent character study of Vala as outsider, considering her options and the people she's met on Earth. Her thoughts on Sam are my favorite, but they're all very well done with stellar characterization!


Vala had a series of escape plans worked out even before she stepped through the Gate that first time to Daniel's world, plans that were discarded and replaced on her initial evaluation of the layout of the SGC. As her stay with the Tau'ri went on, the constant calculations for strategic withdrawal running through her head became a soothing background noise. A jarring note introduced itself, though, when she realized how much she would miss what she would be leaving behind.

Why This Must Be Read: Oldskool classic fic! This is intense Jack and Daniel friendship, with a typically Otterish twist that you will not see coming... even if, upon rereading, you realize that all the clues were right there.

Why This Must Be Read: This charming little ficlet is both metaphorically and literally sweet: a peaceful moment of friendship between Teal'c and Daniel, at the beginning.

And of course this one pushes all my happy buttons, because JDJunkie wrote it at my request. :)

Why This Must Be Read: This is a fascinating exploration of Nick's backstory, including a history that spans decades and too many griefs. I love how a person that so many fans perceive as a shallow, cookie-cutter character suddenly becomes very human and very real!


Looking down at Claire’s son, Kaatje’s grandson, he knew he couldn’t face another love, another loss. He made his voice harsh as he told Daniel there was no place in his life for him. That someone – someone else -- would care for him. About him.

And he left.

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 fic is almost impossible to categorize. It's a lovely S8 Teal'c perspective on his teammates. It's the satisfaction of seeing Daniel still delighting in the unknown after everything he's experienced. It's the marvel of offworld things that can't quite be explained, and the joy of the unknown, and Sam the skeptical scientist still embracing it. It's friendship, and character study, and a hint of Daniel/Sha're. And it just deserves to be read!

Daniel wavered, turning towards the shower room, then he turned back. "Uh, you need any help, Jack?"

"No," Jack said automatically. "I'm right behind you." He considered a moment. "As soon as I can lift my arms."

There was a long moment of contemplative silence from the other side of the room. Then Daniel put down his towel and walked back to the bench.

He thinks, dimly, that he misses the man he was... but he's fairly certain he remembers the man he was would have sold his left kidney for the chance to know half of what he knows now, gunshots or no.

“You noticed all that?” Jack said.

“Of rocks,” Jack said.

“There weren’t any around, so I compensated,” Daniel said.

Why This Must Be Read: I adore fics that explore the remarkable friendship between Teal'c and Daniel. This is early, early S1 - post The Enemy Within - that features Teal'c and Daniel as two outsiders in a crowd, considering cultural conflicts and hoping to build some bridges together. Lovely stuff, all round!


Teal’s stood silently at parade rest, finally offering, “It is a temperate evening.”

Daniel frowned at him. “What?”

“I have observed that many of your people begin a conversation with meaningless exchanges concerning climate.”

“Oh, well.”

The silence stretched out again.

Why This Must Be Read: In that nebulous time of transition between the end of S8 and the beginning of S9, all of SG-1 - Jack, Sam, Teal'c, Daniel, and Jonas - achieve a rare moment of togetherness to contemplate their uncertain future.

I like the friendships, the reluctance to drift away, the tentative anticipation of where they might find themselves going. Add the bittersweet coda of a certain throwaway line from S10, and you'll find yourself wishing that the teaminess they share would have a way to last forever.

The ruins on P4Y-771 had been discovered during a routine investigation. “They hoped to find weapons grade naquada,” Weston’s report read. “Instead, they found a temple. I was thrilled. They ... weren’t.”

Why This Must Be Read: From the first reference to Dr. Daniel Jackson (1964-2002, 2004-2060) you will start grinning at the sheer hilarity of this fantastic send up of the many, many mistakes that inevitably creep into any attempt to understand history without the proper references. It's great fun to see how a 22nd century historian misinterprets so much of what we understand ourselves, even if the humor is bittersweet sometimes!

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.

“Who taught you how to drive?” he asked, as Teal’c made a perfect three-point turn back into traffic.

“You did,” said Teal’c, and Daniel smiled, remembering only a little, but enough to count.

Why This Must Be Read: I have a massive soft spot for Fallen AUs that allow us a deeper exploration into the enigma that is Arrom. This version eventually gets us back into canon, but diverges into a longer time for amnesiac!Daniel with the nomads, including a side-trip to a lost Abydos and the search for himself when he doesn't quite understand what he's seeking. It's a sort of outside perspective of Daniel, with Daniel himself serving as the outside POV, and an interesting read.


They tell him they found him in the outskirts of the city, tell him he must have fallen from the sky. They tell him a lot of things, and he has little else to believe.

Why This Must Be Read: Sometimes SG-1 loses, and sometimes it's the fault of individual choices. Luckily, Daniel has Sam to help pick up the pieces afterwards.

This is bleak and bittersweet, as Sam and Daniel, with perfect characterization, face their failures and the desperate need to just keep going. It's not a happy fic, but it rings all too true and is well worth the read.


Sam is too tired to think that far ahead. When she gets back to earth she’s going to hug Cassie extra hard for the little girl she couldn’t save, and she’ll think of the grave she and Daniel covered with grass in its green and quiet clearing, and she’ll appreciate the closure it’s given her. Then she’ll get on with the fight, whatever it brings.
