Why This Must Be Read: I could try to be pithy and summarize this as "Vala and Jonas bond over being tortured by the Ori," but this story has much greater depth than that. It's an honest, clear-eyed look at a long, painful recovery from abandonment, pain, and loss of hope. This is a perfect Vala and an excellent Jonas, with bonus well-characterized Sam, dealing with the fallout of Langara's fall to the Ori. It feels very real, and very well done.

Why This Must Be Read: Sam is delightful in this short story, as she helps their new resident alien find a method of recreation and handles the subsequent conversation with her CO with aplomb. I love her sense of humor, Jonas' enthusiasm for new things, and Jack's wry acknowledgment of who's really responsible for the whole thing.

Why This Must Be Read: An excellent look at Jonas and his gradual progression from frightened outsider to team member, touched with his own perspective on the nature of choice and responsibility. Jack is perfectly in character here, as is Sam and Teal'c. This is a good, solid S6 fic that does Jonas (and the team) justice.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a thoughtfully deep glimpse into Jonas' mind: cultural conflicts, memories of what's lost, and the comfort of a good friend in Sam. A touch of humor, a dash of angst, and French fries for good measure: this is a relatively short vignette that holds a surprising amount of depth, and is well worth reading.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a fic of joy -- Sam's friendship and closeness with each member of her team in turn, plus Jacob. Vala and Jack are the only ones missing here (and from the summary, Jack's omission seems deliberate, although a casual reference to that friendship is also included.) But you'll love the way each aspect of Sam is highlighted by her various friendships, and it will be impossible to read this without a smile on your face.
