minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)
[livejournal.com profile] brown_betty wrote me a fic from this prompt (tangent: because honestly, now that's in your head, can you THINK of anything else? If anyone else asks me for a prompt in the next week they're getting pointed to this photo. I'm still drooling.) and I luuuuuurve it. Firefly, gen: Still, to be Neat; Still to be Drest. I love this woman's prompting of appreciation and feedback, and I hope our fandoms overlap enough to get to know each other a bit, but the only times I've been in a comic book shop to buy anything for myself EVER I was there for the Firefly. That's all, alas.

Also? GIP. For the very first time ever appearing in this LJ, the beauteous [livejournal.com profile] trikakeep has made me a pimping hat icon. *loves like it's going out of style* The only thing better would be hundreds of different hats, seriously. I LOVE my pimp hat. With PLUME! *glee* I have been reccing like a mad reccing thing this weekend and it makes me unreasonably happy to have the appropriate zebra print hat with plume for the occasion.

And these would be my new tango shoes! My POV and the floor's POV, but that's all, I swear. )

Lastly, y'all know the Isis Awards are open for voting, right? Go! Read the secondary 'ships (not Sam/Jack, not Wier/Sheppard. EVERYONE ELSE IS SEXIN' IT UP HERE, FOLKS) vote for the imaginative authors! Cookies for everyone!
minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)
*twirling* )

Why yes, I have been reading Firefly fic, why do you ask?

Specifically, I had two fanfics from Salieri recc'd to me recently, and I, shockingly, hadn't read either one before.

And Sal is one of my favorite authors, one I will read almost anything from, even if it's not my pairing, even if I never thought I would be in the mood for a reaver fic.

Because it's Sal. By which, you should understand I mean you should absolutely read this fic too, I don't care whether you think you'll like it. It will probably break you a little bit, and goodness knows it must have been hard to write, but the redemption is gorgeous. Every member of the crew is a line of music. Jayne is a complex psychological creature surviving as best he can.

You will all go read this now: Utopia by Salieri ([livejournal.com profile] troyswann).

Then, I almost thought I'd read this before, realizing only on reading the authors notes that Teal'c reciting poetry in the first section was also present in the wonderously funny Elvis Has Left The Building. Sal, apparently, saw a greater story in a man and a woman who had been happy once, and built a gorgeous and bittersweet story around the few fleeting images we have of Drey'ac and what she told us of life in the camps, when her husband left her the burden of living under Apophis' rule.

It's a rare gem of a tale, and so different from 'Elvis' that I almost want to think they can't have been the same passage. The Water Moon.

Here ends the worship of Sal for today. Stay tuned for further episodes.

Oh, but I do need to mention the rather wonderful Drabble On Demand that [livejournal.com profile] janedavitt wrote to the prompt "at his/her/your most beautiful" in SG-1. She didn't take it where I expected her to. It's more wonderful this way. And ow. But wonderful. Broken.

And, the Teal'c fic recs have been updated and cross referenced, in a rather alarming demonstration of organizational prowess. I blame [livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong. Go forth, ye minions, and giggle.
.
minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)
The most underloved character is also the one to never miss substantial portions of any season. I give you... Teal'c: slash, het, gen, in a team fic and all points in between.

[Reccer's note: I'm ridiculously behind updating these lists. If you're up for a little sleuthing, you'll find new recs under this tag and all tossed together.]

And because this is my kingdom, I shall point you to my Teal'c stories first: Without Fear of Wind or Vertigo (Teal'c and Vala friendship, set during S10's Unending), The God of Poets Has Two Hands (Bra'tac, Teal'c, S9 or 10), Run (Teal'c and Daniel, S8), Five Things Teal'c Learned in Fifty Years (Teal'c, Teal'c/Sam/Cameron, S10, spoilers for Unending), Footsoldiers on Uneven Ground (technically Bra'tac, but Teal'c backstory), Stadium Seating (Teal'c/Cameron, but non-explicit, S9), Perchance to Dream (Teal'c and Sam, S6), The Eye Is Not Satisfied With Seeing (Cameron/Teal'c, not worksafe, S9), Campfirelight, Campfire Stories (Cam, but with Teal'c and Sam and Daniel, S9), and Into the Breach (Teal'c, S7ish).

Other's fine, fine work:

Some recent work from [livejournal.com profile] paian: Five TV programs that Teal'c records so he never misses an episode. which is a fantastic mix of gravitas, empathy and humor (worksafe.)

And a fantastic haunting Sam POV, releasing self-imposed restrictions and allowing new ideas for herself. The Blessing of Presence is Sam in Unending, becoming Sam/Teal'c, and how. Lovely. Worksafe, from [livejournal.com profile] princessofg.

A couple of Cameron/Teal'c stories (EEEEE!!!):

First one is from [livejournal.com profile] princessofg, who writes them sparring and kneeling and plays with Cam's knowledge of Jaffa culture elegantly. Love the implied depth of other friendships with the rest of the team, the humor, and the sense of inevitablity and need. When You Know What You Know, Cam/Teal'c first timed, NSFW, no particular spoilers besides late seasons cast.

Next is from [livejournal.com profile] janedavitt, who takes them into established relationship. This one is a doozy, because you have two people deeply invested in kindness and manners and formality in some respects, but Jane writes the completely scorching contradiction they've always had where they prefer roughness with each other. Like, really, serious roughness. This is a short little bit of sexiness packed with intimate negotiations from name to intentions, and you know this is one of those relationships where they'll have the conversation once and the message will be received. Past A Certain Point, rated R, and you might possibly get away with it at work, but it is a conversation in bed.

[livejournal.com profile] abyssinia4077 posted a marvelous remix of Into the Breach titled Rosemary for Remembrance (the Paragon of Animals remix) and it's lovely: full of outside POVs of Teal'c throughout his life. About choices and consequences and give and take. The friendship with Daniel, particularly, is lovely. Worksafe. Not precisely gen, though (but neither was the original).

Any story from [livejournal.com profile] paian is a story worth reading, imo, but when she writes Teal'c, something really sublime happens: An I for an I is to the prompt of Identity, and really, really amazing. Teal'c. And Identity. By Paian. Go read it. Worksafe.

From the [livejournal.com profile] sg1friendathon is [livejournal.com profile] holdouttrout's fantastic Teal'c and Vala prank wars. I mean, Teal'c and Vala alone are wonderful to contemplate, but with the addition of meditation and scheming, you get two very opposite people with a whole lot of sympathy understanding need and filling it. They are nicely true to character in beats that stretch over the timeline of the finale. Jester's Silence, worksafe, spoilers for Unending. I remixed this story into Without Fear of Wind or Vertigo.

From [livejournal.com profile] beatrice_otter, one of my favorite things ever: a Sam and Teal'c Unending Tag. Um, I think it might have been my prompt at [livejournal.com profile] choc_fic, come to think of it. This is gen, though, and aching, as Sam and Teal'c spar and don't apologize for not pulling punches. Lovely. The Weight of Non-Existent Years. SG-1, finalefic.

[livejournal.com profile] amidalashari brings the Teal'c and Daniel friendship: White Chocolate Space Egg in which Daniel is earnest and Teal'c is Totally Messing With Him. Worksafe.

A Descension fic, S7, Daniel seeing and not seeing, and Teal'c characteristically not mincing words. Really nice friendship as only Stargate could, really. [livejournal.com profile] splash_the_cat's Out of the Loop, gen, Daniel and Teal'c, S7. Worksafe.

Gorgeous post-Unending Teal'c story from [livejournal.com profile] paian. Really it's a five things, but the beauty of it is in the sixth thing, the one that turned into a 2,000 word story and just aches with knowledge unshared, and friendship unnamed. Beautiful, says a great deal about all of them. Five Things Teal'c Brought Back in Unending, Plus a Coda.

[livejournal.com profile] abyssinia4077: Now the Sun has Come to Earth, Sam/Teal'c apocafic sg1. A beautiful way to go down swinging, and holding someone's hand. Sam's need and Teal'c's loyalty are amazing here, and heartrending. Worksafe.

[livejournal.com profile] kalquessa wrote a brilliantly funny Sam-is-kick-ass story (with gladiators) called Girls (and Jaffa) Do Not Fight Fair that is just so wonderfully teamy and happy, after a mission return delayed. Team, S8, worksafe.

A ficlet from [livejournal.com profile] cofax7: Teal'c, and a bunch of other hookups (post S9, joyful).

Actually, [livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong had a nice commentary on [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl's extraordinary Men of Action, also. Those are Cam/Teal'c, SG-1, apocafic and slash. And fantastic. I really do highly recommend them.

The Bullet Struck Hard, But I Do Not Bleed by [livejournal.com profile] abyssinia4077 Daniel and Teal'c, and one of the stories I read when I was stuck working on Run.

Earthbound by [livejournal.com profile] svendra. Teal'c, SG-1, AU, and just one of the neatest ideas ever. Teal'c, Bounty Hunter. The big guy would be happy, with all his private investigator aspirations.

This Mountain in the Wind by [livejournal.com profile] splash_the_cat in [livejournal.com profile] choc_fic. Jack/Teal'c, SG-1, PG and wonderful.

Then there's [livejournal.com profile] paian, who wrote an extraordinary Five Things for Teal'c. In this case, Five Ways Teal'c Could Have Grown Up On Earth, I believe. Her descriptions of him are incredible, especially in different venues or arenas or roles--the ways in which he is less alien for having grown up here are marvelous, and the ways in which he is still recognizably Teal'c are incredible. God I love that woman's writing. Worksafe, and recommended strongly.

[livejournal.com profile] abyssinia4077's romp through silly food as comfort. Sam and Teal'c, Feeling Blue, lovely tag to S9's New Order. I think it was S9 or S8, gen, worksafe.

[livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl has a way with world building, that constantly gives you tactile reminders that you are in a foreign place, an alien landscape. Things have been lost, things are gained. And along the way, you get Teal'c's pragmatic and elegant interpretation of the Taur'i, right along side the ways they surprise him, at the end of the world. I also enjoyed the play of relationship in understanding and comfort, rather than the usual physical awareness-- because Teal'c is reserved, yes he is, and the way to get to him is through his mind. Grey Skies, Ashen Ground, for [livejournal.com profile] apocalypse_kree, Cameron/Teal'c, PG rated, SG-1.

I once asked people to write me Teal'c in a cathedral, so I thought I'd repost that they are:

[livejournal.com profile] surrealphantast, who wrote Godless, a lovely strange ritual of friendship between Sam and Teal'c: the ritual of Sunday mornings and the cult of bacon, and lovely. SG-1, gen, PG.

[livejournal.com profile] janedavitt, who wrote the very beautiful hurty Teal'c and Daniel friendship Stained Glass.

[livejournal.com profile] synecdochic also wrote Cameron and Teal'c and church, Five Things Cam and Teal'c do Together on Earth Fantastic.

I'm still hoping for Jack, and maybe Vala.

[livejournal.com profile] paian had a fantastic Pentangular Gate entry in [livejournal.com profile] sg1_five_things: Five Things Teal'c Brought Back in Unending. Seriously, the fifth one killed me. And it would be great to see more five thingses going on over there--I have to admit that it is not a type of fic I'm good at, but I know y'all got skillz. Gen, Teal'c, spoilers for the finale, but worksafe.

[livejournal.com profile] sg_fignewton wrote this hilarious team story, Ninja Style, which Julie subtitled 'Teal'c pwns SG-1', so you know it's fun. Gen, team, G rated, worksafe.

Teal'c being intimidated in a funny way fic! Thank you [livejournal.com profile] teand, for Proceed With Caution, (worksafe.)

[livejournal.com profile] delphia2000 wrote the gentle and insightful Questionable Fic (worksafe, finalefic). There is nothing like a story for a birthday present.

In the '08 gate'verse remix ficathon, [livejournal.com profile] katie_m remixed (Perchance to Dream) from Sam's POV. I love how the tone changes to reflect Sam's logic and progression from the original story's Teal'c. I love the details she filled in, and I am currently terribly fond of Teal'c and Sam together, so it was an incredible thing for me, as well as a wonderful story in it's own right. To Thine Own Self Be True (the protesting lady remix) is worksafe.

Also from that remix, I love the detail of memory Teal'c obviously retains, his need to make amends, and his awareness of the karmic payback that he's already paid. I adore wildly [livejournal.com profile] cofax7's use of scribes and historical documents to edge the story with facts Teal'c won't utter, and I love how what he does say along with all the other information hints at (possibly one of a million) destructive tragedies that Teal'c bears responsibility for. There is no flaw in voice or in character, and yet Cofax circles around [livejournal.com profile] beatrix_otter's story with moments between and it's just amazing. Team, Teal'c, PG, worksafe. None But Ourselves (the Redemption Song remix). This is a remix of [livejournal.com profile] beatrix_otter's [livejournal.com profile] tealc_ficathon piece Pale Battalions, also fascinating for how affected Teal'c is in the moments after the battle.

[livejournal.com profile] medie wrote a great first kiss for Cameron and Teal'c called Out Behind the Gate, in which Teal'c is wry and funny and Cameron gets played. Mmmm, I love that. PG-13, slash.


Finalefic: [livejournal.com profile] rowan_d's Signal Fire. Lovely Sam and Teal'c (PG-13), where Rowan does a brilliant acknowledgement of other loves. Spoilers for Unending (S10).

[livejournal.com profile] splash_the_cat drew my attention to this really marvelous Sam and Teal'c friendship piece that is just adorable. Lucky, lucky Sam. Enjoying the View from [livejournal.com profile] moonshayde, worksafe.

This one is between S6 and 7, it's complex psychology from Sam and Jack, it's insightfulness from Teal'c, it's the team dealing with one of the worst mistakes they've made and it's lovely. Also I love Jacks read that Sam is not oblivious, she just doesn't need to verbally express things most of the time. Find Your Way, worksafe, Jack & Sam & Teal'c friendship.

From the lovely [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl, Five Ways Cameron and Teal'c Told the Rest of the Team They Were Moving In Together. HEE! Loved it. Mean it.

Shunda's wonderful and hot Cam/Teal'c snippet. NC-17, PWP, tactile and charactery and wonderful.

[livejournal.com profile] pellucid elegant Sam/Cam/Teal'c threesome is a fantastic example of comfort, knowing and willing and reasonable. Probably not enough to cover the loss, but enough to feel found. Attrition S10, through "Line in the Sand", NC-17.

[livejournal.com profile] surrealphantast has written some amazing Jack and wonderful Sam and Teal'c in the last month or so. This one is Sam and Teal'c and religion, and I love, I *love* anyone having this kind of conversation with Teal'c. Godless.

[livejournal.com profile] janedavitt gets points for posting a tag to the emminently tagable Talion (S10). This is a drabble, established relationship, Cam POV, and heartbreaking with an economy of words: Marked Up, R rated-ish.

[livejournal.com profile] dknightshade wrote an incredible Jack and Teal'c friendship story ca S4, it's about bearing witness in the face of discomfort, about understanding the ways one shows emotion and respecting strength. Incredible. Golden, PG rated, missing scene from 2010.

A Jaffa Revenge Thing from [livejournal.com profile] green_grrl, because you can't trap Teal'c in the middle of banter without his express permission. Or you can, but then you have to face the consequences. PG.

[livejournal.com profile] malnpudl wrote for [livejournal.com profile] surrealphantast the marvelous OT3 Tapestry, in which my very favorite part may be the role that Teal'c plays. Daniel/Jack/Sam, NC-17, S7 or 8ish.

[livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong stepped up and did the first SG-1 commentary thingy in dvd_commentary on [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl's remarkable Men of Action, which is Cam/Teal'c apocafic. Nifty (but then, RW's my beta, so obviously I love her comments on stuffs.) Way to represent!

HILARIOUS. I love this kind of dry, sarcastic humor. Also, damn fine satire. Teal'c is in fine form, must say. Of Virtue Fair, by [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl SG-1 fairytale starring Vala. Gen-ish (some slash) PG-13.

[livejournal.com profile] synecdochic posted the gorgeous These Are the Things I Will Save for You, about the scattering of SG-1 to the corners of the universe and the country, about how much they gave up for each other and to each other. About alienation and culture shock, about trying so hard to say the things that need to be said and not being heard. Beautiful, beautiful story. OT3, with notable, wonderful Teal'c also, rate an R.

Cameron/Vala, of a sort (PG rated) from [livejournal.com profile] daisycm83: Not Scene, in which Teal'c is also very much awesome.

[livejournal.com profile] lyrstzha wrote a Cam/Teal'c set of Five Things! Well, Cam, with the occasional side of Teal'c (R rated), but any rarer pairing goodness is to be applauded (especially when I thought I knew all the Cam/Teal'c writers and could count them on four fingers, you know?) Rare pairings rah rah rah!

[livejournal.com profile] kuwdora is taking [livejournal.com profile] pegasus_b into a new wonderful direction with her PegH(oly Crap) au of an au. Fantastic so far, building on the fanon for this au and introducing a marvelously small Teal'c (no, I don't mean literally 'small' I mean... well, you'll see.) Breeding Evil, Wonderful, Karma's a Bitch.

Also Sam/Daniel/Teal'c OT3 from Ari ([livejournal.com profile] wisdomeagle) for Meg [livejournal.com profile] sage_theory in the same ficathon: Highest Wisdom, Deepest Love. Has a dreamlike quality throughout, and a beautiful canonical basis. Feels believable and real and needed, by the end. NC-17.

[livejournal.com profile] splash_the_cat's Teal'c ficlet, post-betrayal and recovery in Threshold, is a thing of quiet team love: And I Am Looking Up at the Stars. Beautiful, gen, team. I love when they entertain each other; it's particularly moving when they're really trying to.

Then there's her Sam ficathon piece, featuring Teal'c being wonderful. You Peacemakers Go to the Same Place as Soldiers. Sam, gen, early seasons As Sam struggles, it's amazing the wisdom and character the other three bring to bear on her experience. Jack is sardonic and sympathetic, Daniel is what she can never be again, and forgiving, and Teal'c is wisdom at it's most bittersweet and sincere. Team love in a time of sadness. Lovely.

I'll include this one here because the team are all so incredible in this: Sam and Vala are stunningly dark. Cameron is such an amazingly loyal creature, Daniel is too self-aware, Teal'c broke my heart. This is set at S10 mid-season hiatus, so Jack is banished out to Pegasus, along with the Atlantis command staff, but everything else... It's like the saddest, most inevitable, darkest, gen novel you've ever read. They are all so twisted by the... end. So much so you have to wonder about whether the ending is happy, or relative. Deft, gorgeous storytelling, people. I'm still a little stunned I had anything to do with it. Palimpsest, 30,000 words, gen, R rated, dark. By [livejournal.com profile] paian for me in the [livejournal.com profile] dark_gate ficathon.

A very nice, most believable Sam/Teal'c's: Emotional Desperation by [livejournal.com profile] rolleson, (new Teal'c author, please feed). PG-13 or mild R.

Stuff wot [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl did on my winter vacation: Five Ways Cam and Teal'c Told the Rest of the Team They Were Moving In Together. (Cam/Teal'c, PG-13)

[livejournal.com profile] paian posted... somewhere, Teal'c's Five Favorite Boardgames, and then she was kind enough to repost it to [livejournal.com profile] tealc_fic where I could finish reading it. Five different games, thoughts, times and relationships, and it's just marbleized goodness. The conversation with Daniel kills me.

[livejournal.com profile] dknightshade wrote an incredible Jack and Teal'c friendship story ca S4, it's about bearing witness in the face of discomfort, about understanding the ways one shows emotion and respecting strength. Incredible. Golden, PG rated, missing scene from 2010.

[livejournal.com profile] janedavitt gets points for being the first (that I know of) to post any sort of tag for Talion. This is a drabble, established relationship, Cam POV, and heartbreaking with an economy of words: Marked Up, R rated-ish.

Shunda's wonderful and hot Cam/Teal'c snippet. NC-17, PWP, tactile and charactery and wonderful.

[livejournal.com profile] pellucid elegant Sam/Cam/Teal'c threesome is a fantastic example of comfort, knowing and willing and reasonable. Probably not enough to cover the loss, but enough to feel found. Attrition S10, through "Line in the Sand", NC-17.

[livejournal.com profile] surrealphantast has written some wonderful Sam and Teal'c. This one is Sam and Teal'c and religion, and I love, I *love* anyone having this kind of conversation with Teal'c. Godless.

From the lovely [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl, Five Ways Cameron and Teal'c Told the Rest of the Team They Were Moving In Together. HEE! Loved it. Mean it.

Alert reader [livejournal.com profile] splash_the_cat drew my attention to this really marvelous Sam and Teal'c friendship piece that is just adorable. Lucky, lucky Sam. Enjoying the View from [livejournal.com profile] moonshayde, worksafe.

A series tag from [livejournal.com profile] niamaea, and one of those gen fics with a partnership *also*. This is Sam and Teal'c POV (the Teal'c is particularly lovely) as the team is given a chance to live and die quietly, no fanfare. Cameron/Sam in there, but it really is a nice little story about our heroes finding their own ways to live like normal people (or not, as the case may be). A Million Years Into the Sky, gen, Cam/Sam, PG, finalefic

[livejournal.com profile] medie wrote a great first kiss for Cameron and Teal'c called Out Behind the Gate, in which Teal'c is wry and funny and Cameron gets played. Mmmm, I love that. PG-13, slash.

From the [livejournal.com profile] gateverse_remix, This is Teal'c and the original team treading on the edge of T's past. I love the detail of memory Teal'c obviously retains, his need to make amends, and his awareness of the karmic price that he's already paid. I adore wildly [livejournal.com profile] cofax7's use of scribes and historical documents to edge the story with facts Teal'c won't utter, and I love how what he does say along with all the other information hints at (possibly one of a million) destructive tragedies that Teal'c bears responsibility for. There is no flaw in voice or in character, and yet Cofax circles around [livejournal.com profile] beatrice_otter's story with moments between and it's just amazing. Team, Teal'c, PG, worksafe. None But Ourselves (the Redemption Song remix). This is a remix of [livejournal.com profile] beatrice_otter's [livejournal.com profile] tealc_ficathon piece Pale Battalions, also fascinating for how affected Teal'c is in the moments after the battle.

I got remixed by [livejournal.com profile] katie_m, people. Katie. M. I have so much respect for this girl I can't even tell you; she's just that wicked smart. She also picked one of my favorite sweet little friendship stories (Perchance to Dream) between Teal'c and Sam and remixed it from Sam's POV. I love how the tone changes to reflect Sam's logic and progression from the original story's Teal'c. I love the details she filled in, and I am currently terribly fond of Teal'c and Sam together, so it was an incredible thing for me, as well as a wonderful story in it's own right. To Thine Own Self Be True (the protesting lady remix) is worksafe.

[livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl wrote a Stargate Cam/Teal'c Ficlet that is so, so funny. Gods love RW for inspiring such madness. Soup! lordy.

In more Cam/Teal'c goodness, [livejournal.com profile] adafrog posted a series of 5 Ripple Effect snippets, all centering around Cam and Teal'c in one way or another.

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this before, but it's one of my favorite pairings, so. [livejournal.com profile] niamaea's Cameron/Teal'c ficlet about movies. Seriously. And Daniel is adorably clueless and dirtyminded at the same time.

SG-1 fic: Carry Me Home (het, slash) from [livejournal.com profile] friendshipper. BECAUSE YES I LOVE FINALEFIC. And this one is excellent. Teal'c voice is grand, the undercurrents of emotions going on behind the physical intimacy are wonderful, and it has a wonderful yearning playing with all the sense of being home and awareness of the gift of all of it. This is poly, multiple partners, and not worksafe.

SG-1 apocafic: Temperate from [livejournal.com profile] thassalia is Vala knowing how to live, and Cameron coming around to it and learning from her. It's a threesome fic with Teal'c being oddly hysterical in counterpoint to this wonderful bleak setting. NC-17, S10 without spoilers, very nice comfort. For [livejournal.com profile] sugargroupie's Wallsex Challenge.

SG-1 from [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl. Incredible Luck, Annoying Charm (Teal'c, Vala, PG) Fantastic aliens bonding story (I've read some nice Vala gen lately) while figuring out how to beat the silly Earth people at their silly basketball game. Worksafe.

Da Capo again from [livejournal.com profile] splash_the_cat. This is Sam and Teal'c at the finale, and lovely. But then, I have a HUGE MASSIVE WEAKNESS FOR SAM AND TEAL'C FINALEFIC. (ahem) Gen, worksafe.

Oh, hello... Sam and Daniel sparring, with Teal'c teasing and the physical and the sexy and the dirty all coming to the mat. Fighting as foreplay, ladies and gents, and all of them very nicely in character. Sparring, by [livejournal.com profile] psychofilly, Sam/Daniel(/Teal'c), PG-13 from an icon prompt.

In the [livejournal.com profile] mmom community, dedicated to multifandom masturbation for the month of May. Lots of grand, grand little fics there, but a Teal'c/Sam stood out for me: Tent Walls Part 2 from [livejournal.com profile] geonncannon (NC-17)

[livejournal.com profile] cofax7 looks at five decisions that might have gone differently in one of those alternate realities that are of little consequence to our T. Five Battles Teal'c of Chulak Never Fought. 'Twill break you and heal you for Teal'c. Mostly gen, just a smidge of the potential for slash in the last. PG. Power wielded, effects and consequences.

More from Moonshayde: The Price of Time, PG, gen. There are untapped reservoirs of interest in Teal'c's assimilation to Taur'i ways, seriously. And how he changed them? I must SEE Teal'c teaching other's to kel'no'reem!

[livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong stepped up and did the first SG-1 commentary thingy in dvd_commentary on [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl's remarkable Men of Action, which is Cam/Teal'c apocafic. Nifty (but then, RW's my beta, so obviously I love her comments on stuffs.) Way to represent!

The marvelous [livejournal.com profile] tealc_ficathon provided no small amount of fantastic stories (I have a master list here), among them were the following:

[livejournal.com profile] dustandroses wrote this for me and I love that she plays with the idea that Cam is really close to his family and that the others haven't had that luxury. I love that she writes Teal'c and Cam D/s and with kink, because these two strong, able, hierarchical men ought to have a few Not Vanilla stories written about them, don't you think? And this is a marvelous first time with trust and freaking out and dropping and Teal'c laughing. Laughing. It is possibly the sexiest part of a very sexy fic. Jaffa School, NC-17, D/s, bondage, Teal'c laughing (what? It should be a category.)

Easy There, Steady Now by [livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong for [livejournal.com profile] deani_bean, which I am not rational about because I beta'd it, but I do think it's an extraordinary example of intimacy and comfort in so many ways suited to the characters, and by the way, plot. Teal'c/Cameron, PG-13-ish, S9. It's also at her LJ.

Molasses, by [livejournal.com profile] sugargroupie (Shunda) for [livejournal.com profile] jalabert. Cam and Teal'c, isolated and seeking each other and surviving mind games and being stripped down to their core beings; plus as the tension ramps and you get worried, you by the way also get the plot and the story, but the intensity is great enough that you do not care until you get confirmation that everyone's okay. Awesome. Gen, G, S9.

Leaving Childhood by [livejournal.com profile] katie_m for [livejournal.com profile] paian. Wonderful complexity in Teal'c's interactions with Ishta and Rya'c and Kar'yn, extraordinarily well crafted characters for all of them, fascinating subjects, fascinating reactions. It's amazing. S8/9, het, G-rated.

Speak the Living by [livejournal.com profile] paian for [livejournal.com profile] hsapiens. Gorgeous and heartbreaking traditions, both new and old, Teal'c adapting and coming to terms with his past and present and future, with loss and betrayal and orders and the price of freedom and the weight of surviving. Elegant friendships with Sam and others, incredible backstory and missing scenes from Heroes make the canon moments even more heartbreaking and meaningful. Wonderous. Gen, PG, spoilers for S7 through Heroes, some foreshadowing of canon Jaffa culture mentioned in later seasons, but not plot or character related.

Up For It by [livejournal.com profile] janedavitt for [livejournal.com profile] sugargroupie, Cam and Teal'c and Vala and sexy and funny and everybody on their game--the interaction is fantastic. One of my favs. PG-13ish, S9, pre-slash.

[livejournal.com profile] thassalia has written an amazing 5 things fic, in keeping with May being masturbation month, that is incredibly in character and lonely and heartbreaking in 5 fully different ways. But hot. I have no idea how she did that. SG-1, S9, NC-17. Her sensory detail is incredible.

Sam and Daniel sparring, with Teal'c teasing and the physical and the sexy and the dirty all coming to the mat. Fighting as foreplay, ladies and gents, and all of them very nicely in character. Sparring, by [livejournal.com profile] psychofilly, Sam/Daniel(/Teal'c), PG-13 from an icon prompt.

Can you rec commentfic? I hope so, because in a stalwart show of love for [livejournal.com profile] cofax7, elishivah, salieri and eve11 all fic'd with Teal'c! Jack and Teal'c, team and Teal'c, Teal'c and Sam... it's all good.

A nice waking-up together fic from [livejournal.com profile] sugargroupie, her first in this fandom, and I love a girl who introduces herself with a sweet threesome: Not 'Til the End. Cameron/Teal'c/Vala, PG-13

[livejournal.com profile] psychofilly's Untitled Sam and Teal'c Have a Bonding Moment and Hammond has to Poke Jack in the Ribs to Make Him Behave fic. This is why you should name your own fics, people. But seriously, I really thought I'd recc'd this before...

[livejournal.com profile] minnow1212's Something Sweet, which is gen, marvelously layered and just really fine.

[livejournal.com profile] delphia2000 Commentfic'd for ME here. This, ladies and gentlemen (if there are any) is a totally acceptable way to decline ficathon participation in my world, especially if one's attention is usually focused on M7 cowboy love but she wrote MY pairing for me (which would be Cam/Teal'c at the moment.) *loves*

[livejournal.com profile] thassalia wrote [livejournal.com profile] cofax7 (it's all so interconnected, innit?) a post-ep for the Scourge. Teeeeeeamy goodness. And I love that this is going on because a drawback of T.V. is that you don't always have the luxury to resolve everything as much as ought to be done, and this is great.

[livejournal.com profile] eve11 wrote one of my very favorite fics in the [livejournal.com profile] sg1teamficathon, and THEN went all noble and stuff and stepped up to pinch-hit when another author didn't come through. Even though this is past deadline, it's marvelous teamy goodness featuring our heroes in prison and doing their respective things, and it shines the brighter for being posted on it's own. Folsom Prison Blues. SG-1 gen.

Danver's (=[livejournal.com profile] sdraevn's) As the AU Turns (the one where they're all gay) is hysterical. SG-1. HYSTERICAL. I mean, Teal'c alone!

[livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong beat out many, MANY slash entries to win the coveted title of 'I Killed Fandom' with her story Leonine! And I most heartily agree that this story is contributing to general Global Warming. 'Grats, Beauty. Most notably for winning with a less recognized (though no less deserving) pairing. Cameron/Teal'c, and seriously HAWT.

Footnotes by Tallulah Rasa is grand fuckedup!team future fic. I think it's not het or slash but your glasses shades might tint things for you.

[livejournal.com profile] sdraevn = Danver's SG-1 fic is marvelous and was irrationally appealing due to the idea that they are all sleeping with each other, Teal'c is the epitome of coolness and there is massive flirting everywhere (Snapshot, or The One Where They're All Probably Doing Each Other). I'm all for orgies. Really.

I like any prompt that puts Teal'c front and center, and this is a nice 'helping out the town' fic, but it doesn't fall into an epic level sort of neediness. Also? Teal'c runs into an old friend, who tells stories about his reckless youth. I love the image of Teal'c looking sternly at Carter as she grins hugely and encourages the friend to continue. *g* In Fine Spirits by [livejournal.com profile] splash_the_cat. Nice little teamy moment.

[livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong has taken the plunge and posted a fic. And she did a great job with Teal'c's voice, also his conflicting loyalties and feelings about SG-1 and the SGC and the free Jaffa and the newest member of SG-1, who doesn't know enough to leave him alone. Mountains Are Not Mountains.

A hysterical SG-1 fairy tale: The Tale of Sleeping Brawny and the Galactic Adventurer Who Woke Him Up by [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl, where Teal'c would be the one taking a nap.

Nialla = [livejournal.com profile] nialla42's incredible SG-1 episodic satires the Breadbox Editions now feature Reckoning, Part 1 at alphagate. I love the MSK3K-like BBE's, and Teal'c fans have become more and more vocal in Season 7 and 8, and are really entertaining as Nialla writes us.

The unusual form fic that has spawned far too many plot bunnies in my head: 21 Things We Never Knew About Teal'c by [livejournal.com profile] nakedtoes. There are a lot of really nice insights in there.

An insta-birthday fic for [livejournal.com profile] cofax7 prompted by a single word gives us the lovely team snippet from [livejournal.com profile] elishavah. Season 5ish, Teal'c is a wonderful presence.

Really fantastic team-centered fics in the [livejournal.com profile] sg1teamficathon were required to feature all 4 members of the original team, including Teal'c. Courser (=[livejournal.com profile] shutthef_up was kind enough to pinch hit and write to the specific request of Teal'c talking. *Snoopy dance* Appropriately titled, Teamwork, it is a really nice team moment with all of them.

And, possibly my favorite from the teamficathon: Veil by [livejournal.com profile] eve11 in the [livejournal.com profile] sg1teamficathon. Has a magnificent alien culture, rich and deep and affecting. Watch Teal'c interact with Sam and help her, only to be unable to help himself. Jack feel helpless in the inability to yell or talk or touch and yet be the one who instinctively understands... then there is eve's extremely competant use of mathmatics as a centering chant for Sam, and Daniel's completely in character reactions to everyone.

[livejournal.com profile] cofax7's Welcome To The Working Week for [livejournal.com profile] elismore. This hits a lot of my kinks, here: competant!Sam, Snarky!Jack, Questioning!Daniel and Badass!Teal'c. I also love a good argument with a good resolution, and the team is just very on their game getting out of a nasty situation.

A beautiful Teal'c & Daniel moment as Daniel deals with his time as an ascended being by [livejournal.com profile] inyron for [livejournal.com profile] saeva: Enoch.

[livejournal.com profile] nandamai = Nanda wrote for [livejournal.com profile] cofax7 in the [livejournal.com profile] sg1teamficathon a wonderful team piece with really nice Teal'c presence and dialog. Early season 1 SG-1 team, gen. Wavelength or, How I Stopped Worrying and Learned To Love My Job.

[livejournal.com profile] jmtorres and yet another 'never woulda thought but it totally works' pairing in Teal'c and Teyla. Postcard Fic. Jack, John and Rodney as the completely ignored MST3K commentary are hysterical.

[livejournal.com profile] cofax7 gives us the improbable, the wonderful, the no explanation needed: Teal'c/Ronan snippet. Sam and Daniel are wonderful in this too.

I almost thought I'd read this before, realizing only on reading the authors notes that Teal'c reciting poetry in the first section was also present in the wonderously funny Elvis Has Left The Building. Sal, apparently, saw a greater story in a man and a woman who had been happy once, and built a gorgeous and bittersweet story around the few fleeting images we have of Drey'ac and what she told us of life in the camps, when her husband left her the burden of living under Apophis' rule. It's a rare gem of a tale, and so different from 'Elvis' that I almost want to think they can't have been the same passage. The Water Moon by Salieri ([livejournal.com profile] troyswann).

Brilliantly unusual perspectives, great voices and kick-ASS insights from [livejournal.com profile] katie_m: Almost A Statesman Teal'c, gen, a CLASSIC. All Teal'c fans must read.

[livejournal.com profile] thassalia wrote Teal'c/Vala for [livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong, and it's PWP and I mean... who'd have thunk? snippet. *guh*

Teal'c/Sam friendship, which I'm a big fan of. Tag for S6 'The Changeling'. Another Sleepless Night by [livejournal.com profile] vl_majel. Lovely Sam helping Teal'c adapt to needing to sleep.

By Her Light by [livejournal.com profile] lovellama. Teal'c ponders stuff, yes he does, but you will laugh out loud at Jack and Daniel when they show up to keep him company.

A rather marvelous Teal'c & Sam friendship moment circa season 2. Excellent Teal'c voice and POV, really good characterization of the whole team. It's All About Technique by [livejournal.com profile] moonshayde.

With The Dying by Dira Daniel & Teal'c friendship fic, only it's post Moebius 2 and it's AU Teal'c and Daniel is just that amazing. Warning: may cause heartbreak.

Cameron/Teal'c goodness, which is, btw, my official S9+ OTP:

[livejournal.com profile] sage_theory wrote (for me!) a pre-slash snippet Blip. Getting Teal'c's attention. Mmmm.

Cameron/Teal'c Fic by [livejournal.com profile] kernezelda. 'Tis pretty friendshippy, but if you squint, it could be pre-slash. *ponders* *squints*

Weakness Defined by [livejournal.com profile] deani_bean at [livejournal.com profile] mitchells_sg1. Landry's perspective, interestingly, on team dynamics. Short and v. interesting.

New Relationships by [livejournal.com profile] titti. And it's companion Hello, Goodbye at [livejournal.com profile] gate_unleashed. File under 'new OTP: romance'

Cam/Teal'c Fic by [livejournal.com profile] kernezelda, [livejournal.com profile] rubberneck, [livejournal.com profile] rainer76, [livejournal.com profile] thessalia and [livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong. Aliens made them do it, of course.

Teal'c/Michell ficlet by [livejournal.com profile] rainer76. Teal'c's take on the new leader of SG-1, very cool character interaction, and all about a basketball game (but personally, I think it's a metaphor, nah mean?). PG rated, friendshippy so far.

and (also [livejournal.com profile] ranier76) a WIP: Post Babylon

[livejournal.com profile] janedavitt was goaded into this pairing by a set of suspicious characters. Of no relevance whatsoever is the fact that she wrote [livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong and I a drabble which is snicker-worthy. Hee! Try, Try Again.

Loooooooove for [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl who jumps in the new fandom with both feet: Gesture.

Also, from Ana, pre-slash, a short little ficlet, but seriously, there is so much going ON between those guys. She nailed Cameron, too, though unfortunately, not literally. Just a Guy, Saying Hi.

Stuff crossreferenced from other rec lists of mine:

*glee* Jack and Teal'c Save The Day (illustrated) by [livejournal.com profile] greensilver. *glee*

Also from [livejournal.com profile] janedavitt are two really well characterized Jack/Teal'c fics. And durned if she doesn't make it work! Spit and Polish and Wishful Thinking.

Envisage by [livejournal.com profile] improperlydone. It's Daniel/Teal'c/Jack, and, whoa.

Echoes by [livejournal.com profile] raindroproses. Sam/Teal'c post Pete's death (okay, so it's AU. And can I just say, poor Pete, he gets no respect.)

Compromised, by Shallott OT4, baby! Not terribly graphic, but very entertaining.

Lapse of Gravity by Shallott Sam/Daniel/Teal'c. No, really, it totally works! Acknowledgement of S/J UST, nicely done.

This is hysterical. It's amazing what one canon sentence can do: Acid Worms by BetaCandy, which is Teal'c's take on the circumstances surrounding the drink that made Carter take off her... on P3X-595.
.

Further reading:

[livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong is maintaining an excellent list of Teal'c/Cameron stories, friendship and pre-slash and slash stories represented.

I have meta posts on Teal'c including this post, this one, aaaaaaaand, yes, this one. There are many fic recs in there too, as you may imagine.

First, do no harm. )

Anyway.

Seekrit message to [livejournal.com profile] taselby: ya sure you betcha, and will send email soon, but are you sure I'm qualified? Measly student of subject is not tremendously impressive on paper. Unless you're going to wait until after January to turn it in, in which case I will be graduated and much more intimidating a specialist.

Not so seekrit message to [livejournal.com profile] wraith816 and [livejournal.com profile] switch842. I love my vid. Can't believe y'all made such a warm hug of a hurt/comfort J/D vid. That's comfort food, right there. {{{{{hugs}}}}} For everyone else, to d/l this cheer up your day vid, go here.

News from the Janet front: lovely Janet POV of her time with Daniel during Meridian. Warning for clinical detail walking the 'possibly squicky' line, but it didn't bother me. Not that, you know, it was likely to. Friendship, S5, PG-13 for medical stuff. Cleanliness Is Next to Godliness by kaz.

More Cameron/Teal'c goodness, which is, btw, my official S9+ OTP. [livejournal.com profile] janedavitt (*face/palm* Sorry, Jane! Sorry!) was goaded into this pairing by a set of suspicious characters. Of no relevance whatsoever is the fact that she wrote [livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong and I a drabble which is snicker-worthy. Hee! Try, Try Again.

Loooooooove for [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl who jumps in the new fandom with both feet: Gesture. Incidently, she also wrote just an amazing Inara & Jayne friendship moment that is set post-BDM. Unbalanced.

minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)
[livejournal.com profile] taselby wrote me a snippet! It was supposed to just be a drabble, so it's above and beyond. It's also perfect, because it's a lovely broken!Daniel moment and Jack is there, without awkwardness, without obligation... just someone coming through for you when you really didn't expect them to. Friendship (if you ignore the title), CotG, but if you are a tried and true slasher, you will recognize the pre-slash in this, which gives it a whole new slant. Jigsaw. Thank you.

And, this is a weird thought, but Arduinna pointed out that in Moebius, it was relayed by LeftBehind!Daniel that while Sam arduously opposed messing with the timeline, Jack and Teal'c pushed to start the revolution. When it went wrong, Jack and Teal'c WITH Sam were killed, and Daniel survived.

There has to be a fic in there somewhere. And I think it's Sam/Teal'c-y. Or maybe Sam/Daniel-y... but I think Sam/Teal'c, with Jack/Daniel obviously going on in their way (or OT4? That would be a first for me). Someone remind me of this once the RL writing marathon is overwith, or adopt the plot bunny, will you? Otherwise I'm shutting it up with the Mal/Simon fic that haunts my dreams, and who knows if either will ever be heard from again?

Really, really good things that happened this past week:

1. the Boy. I think I could be in serious danger of falling in love with him.

2. Rob Thomas and his need for writing songs containing the lyrics "Just let me hold you/while you're falling apart", and on a similar note, Coldplay's recent theme of fixing whatever is wrong in your soul is also speaking to me.

3. Icons (see the pretty from [livejournal.com profile] paian? Thank you, paian), stories, e-cards, general loveliness from online friends. You do realize that I love you, right? And I am so grateful for your presence and your stories and your witness in general to the importance of letting things touch you and recognising how vibrant life still is.

4. M*A*S*H*, and Saving Private Ryan, for nice perspective. Perspective is an interesting thing, isn't it? Makes you wonder how people get through wars. The idea of a soldier-doctor is a really interesting paradox. How the hell do you do that? A good reason to continue to work for peace, IMO, as death alone is heartbreaking to me; I don't know if I could survive watching so many die needlessly and young and return even a shadow of the person I am now. And that's if I were perfectly whole and safe the entire time.

5. Good friends, good movies and really good spicy margaritas. I may need that recipe. Definitely love that friend.

6. Pets, [livejournal.com profile] jenlevs stories of her beautiful horse that reminds me of my floppy marvelous dingbat puppies. And unconditional love. And fics where people live happily ever after, or at least until they tumble into bed a few more times. And satirific fics that combine both puppies and people falling into bed and I have proof that Sid was mostly kidding, and OH, she made me laugh.

7. Dancing. See also #1 (above).

8. Betaing. Because I get to read fics and people actually want my opinion on stuff. It's almost as satisfying as writing, but much less work. Shout out to [livejournal.com profile] beckymoster. Thanks for letting me beta your stuff. Makes me happy.

And all of you, thanks. Hugs, cuddles and love available as you prefer.

Well isn't this.... I mean, who'd have thought?

I'll be dog gone.

I stumped [livejournal.com profile] cofax7 with a line from her own work that she couldn't place, and in return she wrote me an SG-1 fic snippet! They don't have a penguin for this, but I'm quite flattered! Plus, I mean, it's Cofax. And, for those interested, she used the line she couldn't place as her opening line.

!

I love my LJ and the people it's introduced me to.
