Why This Must Be Read: When the purely human members of SG-1 have a delayed reaction to nishta, Teal'c and Jacob decide to seize the opportunity...

Teal'c pwnage and Jacob pwnage are apparently exponential. :)

This ficlet was originally my birthday present, and I have no idea why it took me so long to rec. Go read it now!


"They are usually most argumentative," agreed Teal'c, blandly.

"Yeah," said Jacob, thoughtfully. "Usually."

Jacob... said Selmak, warningly – but she said it with such amusement that he wasn't fooled for a moment.

Why This Must Be Read: This is Siler at his absolute deadpan best, armed with a wrench and a straight face as he deals with a temporarily 10-year-old Major Carter who still cherishes her motorcycle. Kidfic fan or no, you will adore this little fic. :)


"That's an order, Siler."

"Yes, sir," Siler says, because he never questions the Colonel's orders, even when being saddled with a ten year old Major Samantha Carter, who is all pigtails, freckles, and a toothy smile.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a delightful contemplation of Jack O'Neill by one Sergeant Siler, culminating with exactly what Siler left Jack in his will.

It's wry and deadpan and realistic - just like Siler himself. A joy to read!


As far as Sgt. Siler was concerned, officers were like the weather, hard to predict with any accuracy, beyond the ordinary person's control, and capable of greatly affecting the tenor of a working man's day. And like the weather, most of the activity they generated was made way up high where the air was thin, and fell alike on the just and the unjust down below. His personal approach in dealing with all this was to try to keep his head down and keep going, regardless. What can't be changed must be endured, and in general, it wasn't worth having too much of an opinion about the weather.

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.

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!

Teal'c interrupted. "I am unfamiliar with the game of paper football."

All heads swiveled towards Teal'c. Finally, Daniel said what Sam herself had been thinking. "I can't believe Jack had eight years and never taught you."

"Oh, no," Vala replied, breezily. "Just wondering. Teal'c said we were coming here to reconnect with long-missed allies. Colonel Mitchell said we'd be spreading the good word about the final defeat of the Ori. The IOA spokesman said we'd be renegotiating for technology from a position of greater strength. And Daniel gave you a wink and told us not to have too much fun. One of these things is not like the others, Sam. What are we really doing on Hebridan?"
