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: I love early S1 Teal'c, when our favorite Jaffa is still trying to come to grips with the bizarre world and culture of the Tau'ri. And I love Jack fulfilling his promise to show Teal'c "our world." So this story, where a trip to a hockey game ends in disaster and Teal'c hasn't yet learned to cope with emergencies outside the SGC, is definitely a winner! Add some extra teamy goodness and classic Teal'c pwnage at the end of the fic for an extra treat. :)

Why This Must Be Read: In the wake of Unending, Teal'c has fifty years' worth of memories and loss that he can't share with anyone. Who else can offer therapy better than Jack O'Neill?

I love their understanding of one another and Jack's unique brand of comfort and peace at a time that Teal'c so badly needs it. Beautifully and powerfully done.


Jack glanced over at Teal'c. It was weird, seeing him aged, not just in body with the white at his temples and the fine lines around his eyes, but there was something else, too. An intangible bow to his back. A weight that even Bra'tac had never shown.

There's humor, friendship, angst, snappy banter, superb characterization... All the hallmarks of Sid fics. Bittersweet in the circumstances, and well worth reading them all.

Why This Must Be Read: In the wake of Bane, Daniel insists that he and Jack do something to help Teal'c.

It's fun to see the different perspectives play here: Daniel's dogged determination to talk, Jack's automatic preference for anything other than talking, and the way that both methods mesh beautifully together and succeed.

A very nice friendship fic in classic SG-1 style!

Why This Must Be Read: When Daniel leaps to Teal'c's defense in a fraught situation - without noticing that he might need a little defense of his own - Teal'c is left wondering how to deal with this particular Tau'ri. Jack's vague advice might not help very much, either.

I love very early S1 fic, particularly from Teal'c's POV. This is an excellent look at the very beginnings of team: their support of one another, acceptance of differences, and bonding together against outside menaces. An intelligent read, as Random's stories always are!


He was unsure what to make of the fact that a Tau'ri, a scholar, a man with more honor than sense it seemed, would act as his defender. It was...unsettling. It was also--extraordinary. And it seemed it was...Daniel.

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.

Add stellar Teal'c and Jack interaction and an extra dash of poignancy, and you've got a real keeper.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a short but powerful piece of Teal'c's thoughts and courage during Tangent, while he and Jack are adrift. This says so much about both Jack and Teal'c: their friendship, their bond, what Teal'c has absorbed from Jack and the support they can offer one another. Intelligent and perfectly Teal'c.


Teal'c thinks of the days when his friend raged against death even as Teal'c tried to face it with honour and dignity. He is not sure how to interpret the fact that he now finds more honour in resistance.

A couple of phone calls and Teal'c and Daniel join her in mysteriously choosing blue BDUs on the one day they really should wear green. The whole team gets an entire day of watching the Colonel's hands twitch every time they're in pinching distance.

Faces and bodies were indistinct, but Carter was warm next to Jack and Daniel was lethargically content across from him and Teal’c was stoically happy catty-corner to him, so Jack didn’t need to see his team to know they were good.

From the humor of a wasted Jack and Teal'c stumbling into Daniel's house to a gorgeous Sam and Teal'c friendship scene to a heartbreaking sketch of Teal'c's POV of that wordless moment from Lost City, these three ficlets are a delight. Too short and diverse to excerpt, so go read and enjoy!

Gorgeous. Powerful. Perfectly Jack, and indubitably Teal'c.

Hammond. Ferretti. Superb Jack and Teal'c interaction. No one can offer comfort, but they can help him reach for acceptance. This is powerful, perfectly Jack, and just plain good.


What was left of his anger is gone now, defeated by logic and truth.  Grief is harder to bear, but easier to hide.  He pushes it away, puts on his colonel face and carries on.

Why This Must Be Read: Destina gives Jack marvelous voice here, as he fiercely clings to that long-distance connection with his team after moving to Washington, keeping his finger on their pulses and knowing when he needs to be there for them.

We are first treated to a powerful episode tag to Prototype, with Jack and Daniel's shorthand communication that speaks volumes in understanding and pain. Then it shifts to Jack and Teal'c in the wake of Stronghold, and you'll find your breath taken away by the sheer depth and breadth of their friendship: the memories of shattering experiences shared and eased, the bond of warriors and leaders, and the challenge of those with whom they serve and whom they must inspire.

And the few paragraphs on post-Abyss will leave you gasping.

Magnificent prose, an almost intimate understanding, and stellar characterization: it's all here, and it's all marvelous.

Why This Must Be Read: Paian and Princess of G and Sid did a stunning collaboration here, as Teal'c weighs his experiences with the Tau'ri and considers the meaning of ritual, friendship, and the depths that can often be found in simplicity.

There is magnificent Teal'c POV, written with gravity and choice turns of phrase. Teal'c looks back at his habits over the years and his connections with Jack, at the weight of their burdens and challenges and the choices they make for the sake of others. It's all wrapped up in Jack's fondness for cliches and the benefits of long, hot showers; but there are layers and layers here, waiting to be read with careful thought and even deeper appreciation.

This is the Teal'c I love, and the Jack he respects: the warrior friendship bond at its absolute best.
