Why This Must Be Read: In honor of April 15th...

For Daniel, death is uncertain. Sadly, taxes still aren't!

Team fluffy bonding, circa S8. Just lovely!

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!

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.

Why This Must Be Read: When it's time to send care packages to Atlantis, Rodney and John get some very specialized attention from Sam, Jack, Daniel and Teal'c...

This is fun and teamy and friendly and snarky, and a truly enjoyable read - or listen, if you choose the podfic version!



John opened the Scotch and poured them each a shot. "Here's to Col. Carter and the rest of SG-1."

Why This Must Be Read: I love best the episodes when SG-1 has to grapple with difficult, shades-of-grey situations. In this heartbreaking story, Sam has to deal with a problem with an impossible solution which she nonetheless needs to make.

I love Sam's courage here, Jack's unremitting strength, Daniel's gentle support, the general competence of just about everyone, and the inevitable choice. Painfully, powerfully good.

Why This Must Be Read: Out of necessity, this is a mystery crossover. What makes it so gripping is the characterization: Jack as the competent, intelligent general of the SGC, his rapport and trust in his people (especially Sam), the reactions of the various characters, and the realistic fusion of SG-1 with a certain movie series that you needn't have actually watched (I haven't, personally) in order to recognize. Great apocafic, and a really good read.

Why This Must Be Read: Enjoy a fascinating, angsty exploration of Daniel's waffle breakfast with his grandfather after his parents' funeral, with a bonus time-twisty handwaving of certain discrepancies in Threads and a nod to Crystal Skull. I love stories that focus on tiny details and make it all make sense... or possibly not. :)

His interactions with Daniel and Colonel Chekov, as well as his own thoughts on his duties and responsibilities as general of the SGC, are strongly and perfectly Jack.


Even if he didn't want to be “the man,” maybe he could make it count for something.

Why This Must Be Read: This ficThis is a gorgeous peek into Teal'c's head on the cusp of Season 8, and a fantastic explanation for his decision to stop shaving his head. I love how Teal'c's anticipation of Jack's reaction shows his firm belief that they'll get Jack back from Antarctica, and his own reflections of his journey to freedom over the years. Add a dash of humor with some Daniel, and you've got an excellent Teal'c fic - and there are never enough of those!


He no longer required a physical reminder of his goal: the eventual defeat of all the Goa'uld.

That day would come soon enough.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a great little missing scene from New Order, with Daniel and Yu trading pointed barbs in regard to their shared history... and the dangers that they face with Ba'al and Anubis. I love the way Aurora picks up on past canon and makes it fit so well with what actually happened onscreen!


"As oldest and most powerful of the system lords, the others allow me my minor concessions. Such as keeping my loyal Jaffa with me at all times." He leaned closer to Daniel. "He does all the work of a lo'taur now. I no longer trust human slaves."

Why This Must Be Read: Here is some nice angsty introspective from Jack in S8, mourning the automatic loss of closeness that his promotion and loss of his team entails. He considers the new distance that exists with Teal'c, with Daniel, with Sam... and, with perfect Jack headspace, decides that the sacrifice is worth it.

Sara O'Neill is a truly classic lady who deserves more fic love, and this -- despite the painful undercurrents -- delivers that in spades.

A visit from Jack and Sam turns into self-examination of loss, choice, courage, and persistence. I love how Cassie knows only what she should and her own insights into the people both she and SG-1 have grown to be. This is a tribute to the young woman Cassie has become, and that final line is a gorgeous metaphor for her future.
