Why This Must Be Read: General!Jack comes to the rescue of a very frazzled Mitchell in an extremely wacky situation... which is probably just another day in the life of SG-1, really. :)

Great Jack voice, delicious humor, and bonus deadpan Siler for the win!

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 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 always love early season fic. This is a wonderful exploration of Janet's first real interaction with SG-1, when she is allowed off-world, at her insistence, to assess and judge the needs of medical assistance in the field. You'll enjoy her take-charge attitude, her outside observations of the team, and the trust she quickly wins. For Janet fans, this one is a real treat.

Link: Time Marches Onward

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: 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.

Why This Must Be Read: The hardest part about the apocalypse isn't losing Earth. The hardest part is holding everything together afterwards.

Here is solid, aching Cam perspective as the Earth is lost and the survivors scrabble to find new footing on a cut-off Atlantis. Characterization all-round is moving, powerful, and poignant. This is a long, gripping story that ends, despite everything, with Cam's eternal optimism offering hope.

“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 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. :)

I love the characterization quirks and the appreciative audience, and even General Landry makes a surprisingly congenial appearance. Guaranteed to make you smile and leave you with happy feelings!


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."

Jack blinks at the small, dark-haired, dusky-skinned toddler seated across the conference table in his mother's lap. Torren grins at him, and Jack crosses his eyes and sticks out his tongue to make the little boy giggle. Ha! Still got the touch.

This wacky series of misunderstandings and very awkward, grit-your-teeth-and-smile diplomatic gifts will have you snickering, even as you sympathize. The baby Chthulus are my favorite, but every one of these is a delightful tribute to the insanity that is off-world dealings!

“Once upon a time,” Jack began.

“In a kingdom far, far away,” Sam recited dutifully.

“There lived a beautiful princess,” Teal’c supplied.

“With an advanced degree in theoretical astrophysics,” Daniel chimed in.
