minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)
So I am holed up with my knitting today, making chicken noodle soup and listening to Welcome to Night Vale, episode ... 6 now. I think it's fair to say this radio series is adorkable and wonderfully creepy at the same time. So, it's probably time for a new official recs list. Only it's kind of hypothetical, as I'm making note of people in the fandom who are writing (please rec!) and waiting to read anything until I've caught up.

And now, the weather )

thingswithwings' WtNV fic is all here, but the following story is particularly magnificent: The Observer Effect in which form 42R is a must. Cecil/Carlos.

Oh goodness! Dira Sudis is in this fandom? The Importance of Accurate Moaning. Oh, the things Carlos doesn't know. Cecil/Carlos.

Kidfic in Night Vale was bound to be something else, wasn't it? This is a wonderful and near-perfect script for an as-yet-unaired episode. The Temporal Tornado by novembersmith. No more slash than the actual show.

Also, the fandom seems to be podfic-enriched, a starting point: The Contract by bendingwind on AO3.

And, via [livejournal.com profile] troyswann, a rec for the lovely [livejournal.com profile] loneraven's work in vids and words. Some slash apparent on first glance, and very awesome looking. A constructed reality vid! Of course there are constructed reality vids in WtNV.

Night Vale Broadcast by jonaht: Gen, General Audiences. There is a strange wind blowing in Night Vale. I think jonaht really nailed the voice of the podcasts, so I encouraged her to put it up on AO3. rec via copperbadge.

Welcome to Night Vale recs at [community profile] fancake.

Um, so obviously I'll be adding to this list.

Fanfic Recs:

(I'll give you a minute to sit down and compose yourselves, it has been a while.)

Fandom: Sherlock Holmes, BBC.

Reccers Notes )

So, I give you, the stories I have been reading in Sherlock Holmes fandoms (mostly, but not all, the modern AU that the BBC is airing now.)

Classic early relationship and slash: The Perils of Urban Warfare by [personal profile] phantomjam. Watson POV, pilot timing, and how Watson goes on the mend. The early story is as much Afganistan in John's mind as London, but there's a moment at the end, where John laughs, without any exposition from the author, and I loved the catharsis of that moment. Very nicely written, not worksafe, Watson/Holmes.

A first kiss from [personal profile] resonant: Amenable, which might be cross-referenced under "experimental first steps" for Sherlock. John/Sherlock, not worksafe.

One of comms I've been trawling had a marriage theme for a bit, but like Jack and Daniel, I think John and Sherlock really just work in an "old married love" kind of way:

Declarations of Mutual Devotion which is sweet and just sort-of not about the sexytimes. Worksafe, by [personal profile] waketosleep.

This one deliberately sets up an affectionate, but asexual Sherlock, which is fascinating. And almost more intimate in understanding--the gestures made are resolutely meaningful. Horse and Carriage by [personal profile] flawedamythyst, worksafe.

On the subject of an asexual, or not-even-remotely-interested-in-sex Sherlock, a fic that has no more homoerotic subtext than the canon. Touchy Feely by the lovely [personal profile] basingstoke gen, worksafe, spoilers for The Blind Banker (ep 2).

Thirdly, an asexual (or, at least, really not very interested) Sherlock, with an interesting twist on sleeping together. I think I accept the resolution of the story, but I'm worried that I found it satisfying, when it might have kept it's edge. Regardless, a sweet story that has had me thinking long since I read it. The Second Law of Thermodynamics by [personal profile] entangled_now, and sequels The Art of Negotiation, The Definition of Insanity, and The Rules. John/Sherlock.

Okay, a little gleefully awkward negotiation and first time, because really I'm a joyful slasher: Thought Experiment by [personal profile] entangled_now Watson/Holmes, not worksafe.

One of those angsty, atmospheric, burn-through reveals that hurts so good. The Hour of Separation, by [personal profile] vegarin worksafe, but wrenching. John/Sherlock, PG-13. Spoilers for The Great Game (ep 3).

Trans Sherlock: Now I have to caveat that I am no expert on the trans experience, so I can only say that these stories read as legit to me and let you take what qualifications you will from that. What made these real is the sense that your body may not be an ally, that it can betray as easily as people can betray each other. I very much liked the read that it's not Sherlock's inherent discomfort with social niceties in general that puts him on the fringes of society, but rather that he is a fringe member of society, that he's hiding bigger secrets than loneliness, and that friendship is a bigger acceptance than merely tolerating a person's company. I loved the read of Sherlock as female to male, I thought it added amazing depth to the character and I think the stories that result are remarkable.

Two for your reading: Seems So Easy For Everyone Else by [personal profile] etothepii, link goes to part 1, this story is pre-series, and features Sherlock's changing relationship with Mycroft as a central point. It is gorgeous and heartwrenching.

The second is set in Victorian London, the Law & Downey, Jr. edition, by the physical description of Mary. Intemperance, by [personal profile] basingstoke from the journals of Dr. Watson, and wonderful. You want to hug them all, if there weren't significant danger that Holmes might bite you. Probably not worksafe, though all hanky-panky is off-camera, and the relationships are all canon. Still, this is like no story I've ever read before. As thefourthvine said in her recommendation (which got me reading fanfiction in this fandom in general) one of the amazing aspects of Holmsian fandoms is the reliance on Watson (prim, proper Watson) as a narrator. It's not a great leap to believe he might have edited out some key, private, details.

Related, but not FtM Sherlock: The Adventure of the Manor House by Lyra. ACD canon with a brilliant conceit: ACD was Watson's editor, and the stories are, therefore, real and more rounded than publishers at that time would have allowed. It's years later and the the ACD literary trust has decided to publish stories that had been deemed too indelicate for Victorian times (and later). It hits a realism kink of mine too: when first time sex (especially in an age where the Gay Kama Sutra is not available) is less than perfect, but good enough to continue. Not worksafe. Trans, slash, warning for past rape in the clients story.

In which either John or Sherlock is a little bit special (the magic skills AU trope):

Make Whole What Has Been Smashed by [personal profile] gigantic, in which Sherlock is not living in time the way everyone else is. John/Sherlock.

One of my favorites: an empathy with objects, an understanding of their history by touch. In this case, the skill is John's. They Tell Me Their Secrets (Will You Tell Me Yours Too?) by [personal profile] etothepii gen, worksafe.

Shadows on the Wall by [personal profile] arasigyrn in which John comes back from Afganistan psychic. I loved the even power dynamic, even if John was the only one who knew. UST between John and Sherlock, but still U. Worksafe.

Crossover with The Sentinel (which I know nothing of, and still loved this) which makes them both a little magic. This is ACD ostensibly, but I kept picturing BBC!Lestrade, Richie!Watson and one of the earlier film's Sherlock. I don't know. Also the headjumping, and I didn't mind. I read this three times on three consecutive nights. It's compulsive. Observations on Sentinels and Guides in Victorian London by [profile] ryuuzakochou. Worksafe, long and plotty. Holmes/Watson.

Brilliant, brilliant Molly: back of the envelope in a way. May be the smartest, awesomest, most intruiguing not-sexual attraction to the lead female character I've read in a long time. The Anatomist by [personal profile] rosa_acicularis. Work safe, gen, but not in any way a safe story. I would love if this were canon.

One of the more creative conceits I've seen: soul bonding with an extraordinary world built around it. Through the hiatus and, as the author says, the story of how John lost his mind and got it back. I did miss the romantic resolution, but it's a complete story if it's exclusively about John. The Ties That Bleed by [profile] luchia13. Work safe, but tenuous. John/Sherlock.

via brownbetty: The World on his Wrist by bendingsignpost. Long, plotty, Bob/gen/pre-slash.

A beautiful emotional ride. Not only John and Sherlock (Sherlock's POV and well written) but also Mary and Mycroft, all as fully emotional, multi-dimensional characters with motivations and flaws. One of the masterworks I've read in the fandom so far. The Progress of Sherlock Holmes by ivyblossom. John/Mary and Sherlock/John. First times, long piece, not work-safe, lovely.

AU before the pilot: Ridiculous by [personal profile] kate_everson in which John is the best extraction man the army has, and the doctoring bit is the best cover. Sherlock is the worst about getting caught, and it's love at first sight, probably. Well, with John being all BAMF, how could it be otherwise? Worksafe.

Between series: the one where they go home to Sherlock's family for Christmas, the family is unexpectedly wonderful, but everyone thinks John and Sherlock are dating. Kind of addictive, this one. Winter's Delights by [profile] kate_lear. Not worksafe.

The AU where your soulmate's complete first name appears as a tattoo on your ring finger: Finding John by IronicNarwhal at AO3. Not worksafe.

Recs post S2:

Let You Kiss Me (So Sweet and So Soft.) by [personal profile] out_there. It takes John slightly less time to figure out why Sherlock has started kissing him than it takes Sherlock to figure out why John kisses him back. Worksafe, adorable.

There are already so many tropes about how Sherlock takes back the "married-to-my-work" thing, and how John is magically bisexual even though he protests muchly. This one? This one rings pretty authentic. Here, Our Minutes Grow Hours by [personal profile] the_arc5. Worksafe (fade to black) John/Sherlock.

Acceptable Risk, by [personal profile] astolat (John/Sherlock), first time.

Also [personal profile] astolat, but in ACD canon and lovely. The Maiden Voyage of the Tiresias slash, first time, drag, fade to black details. Non-worksafe, but I do love the euphemisms.

Planet Sherlock Hilarious ranking of what sex means turns into fabulous ranking of sexual encounters with each other. Very funny awkwardness and got pretty sexy there too. Not worksafe.

The Real Meaning of Idioms by [personal profile] feverishsea. In which things have not returned precisely to normal, though John does keep trying. Worksafe. John/Sherlock

Two gen-ish (well, for Sherlock and John version of gen) post-Reichenbach fics:

The Least of All Possible Mistakes by [personal profile] rageprufrock. Lestrade is a woman, and the first time she meats Mycroft, she tasers him. All her interactions with Sherlock, Anthea and John are similarly, utterly perfect. This is a long, luxuriously wonderful fic that I immediately reread. It is also the first Mycroft/Lestrade fic that I read for Lestrade, and not as a background relationship. I loved Pru's Lestrade. LOVE. Bob.* Lestrade/Mycroft, platonic?John&Sherlock.

The Montague Street Doctor by The_Circus. John-centric survival, and how he picks new battles and survives. Beautiful emotion between John and Sherlock (and everybody, really) and fantastic supporting and OC cast. John&Sherlock, gen, worksafe.

ACD canon: Summer of Change by [livejournal.com profile] charlotteyonge.

Bound in Gold Arranged Marriage AU, and kind of adorable in their mutual outrage at the indignity of it all. By [livejournal.com profile] pennin_ink. John/Sherlock.

I find the idea of BBC Sherlock someday keeping bees a leap. This story showed how he might become that man. Seeds by [livejournal.com profile] thesardine. gen.

Molly. Awesome awesome Molly. Black. Two sugars. Sherlock should have known. Worksafe. Gen.

The end of the world, and the worst kind of quarantine. And all my pirates share the grave by [livejournal.com profile] cathedralcarver. not worksafe.

Brilliant, believable D/s where their friendship still comes first, even in the face of a personal case, and pasts that would legitimately break lesser spirits. The Cold Song Series by [archiveofourown.org profile] Eldritchhorrors. Hands down my favorite D/s series. Blatantly not worksafe.

S3 or including Mary Morstan:

A beautifully quiet evening full of small explosions. Repast by leavinghope, is a dinner party post-HLV. It ends on a beautiful hopeful note, and I particularly loved Harry.

A House Already Haunted by fickelpig. A very interesting conceit, as Helen Watson tells a ghost story. Probably not what you were expecting, unless you were expecting a haunting tale, with lyric timing, and a fantastically unreliable narrator. Not gen.

Not the Mary in S3, but she's here. This is a bromance or gen story between John and Sherlock, but you can respect everyone in the morning. and the rivers shall give up their dead by Raven. Sherlock struggles with emotions, John heals.

During the hiatus. Slash and het. Normal Life by overnightbivouac. Oh, John. not worksafe.

ACD canon (though there are more above, unorganized.):

These two stories were rec'd together, and I shall do the same. First is a masterwork, and I read it as my own weird ACD Holmes/Richie Watson, but I don't know why I do that. Possibly it is Richie!verse? Whatever, it is not to be missed, and absolutely does belong in one's personal canon for the backstory of Holmes and Watson. Mistakes of our Youth by candle_beck. H/W, and utterly heartbreaking. not worksafe.

Then the balm for that one (to mend your shattered heart) is Twelfth Night by Katie Forsyth. A master writer in the fandom, but this is the core of everything. H/W, not worksafe.

Sherlock Holmes at [livejournal.com profile] crack_van also a specifically Sherlock BBC tag as well.


*bob or Bob is a tongue-in-cheek term for a story in which romantic relationships between people exists, but are not the main point. I always think of it in a "binary definitions don't really fit" kind of term (where binary would be gen vs. porny story). Proper definition at Fanlore

For [profile] astrogirl2, who was new to SG-1 fandom in 2007, and posting about every new ep as she saw them. She'd just finished season 1, with it's highlights and it's lowlights, and had been informed that it's not just the (sometimes underwhelming) canon in this 'verse, it's the (sometimes overwhelming amounts of quality) fanfiction. Yes.

So here it is, all specifically season 1:

Updated 6/19/09

If you were wondering, my handle comes originally from a group of fen on the Stargate boards. They introduced me to slash through Dr. Jackson's Diary by Anise, and named me after Janet, repeatedly called a minx in that story. (Part two was that the handle was taken on Livejournal, so I had to become an adjective. Fortunately, on Dreamwidth, there are no unnecessary underscores any longer.)

Stories featuring my namesake, then (or rather, I'm her namesake):

I am thrilled to further recommend a wonderful Janet story, S7, pre-Heroes (or absent Heroes, perhaps), in which Janet ends up out in the field with SG-1, surprised by the power dynamics and capabilities of people she's used to mending. It's truly wonderful. Adrenaline from BetaCandy.

This is sex as truth, as only [personal profile] paian can make it (well, other people can too, obvs, but Komos has a gift, I feel.) Visibilium Omnium et Invisibilium is Janet/Jack, really honest and good people who take great comfort in one another dealing with the need for greater intimacy after loss. When each has failed at intimacy before, and the risk of failure is great. Janet and Jack established relationship of sorts, post-Meridian (season five). NSFW.

And nearly Janet! Well, it's Cassie. And season 8 or 9, which means that [profile] annerbhp introduces Cassie to Vala. It's wonderful. Surrogate, which is Cass growing up a little, but still just as snarky as any kid exposed to Jack ought to be. A really nice unexpected friendship.

Early seasons Janet and Sam friendship: Three Meetings by [personal profile] kejsarinna. Gen, worksafe.

Janet in the This is Not Wartime series! From [personal profile] cofax7! I'm so excited. Stands alone, apocafic: Live So Long, gen, link to part 1.

Betacandy, at [personal profile] betacandy_sgfic has posted a brilliant Janet's introduction to the team fic, S1, just post Emancipation. Assess This, PG, gen. Fabulous voice, amazing instant relationships as well as those that take a little longer to settle in, really good observation skills from Janet and I love the sense that this is not the only thing she's done today, not the wierdest, and possibly not the most important, but goodness, it left an impression.

[personal profile] teand wrote a great five things for Janet, in which she remains professional and spunky, and says hilarious things in a marvelous internal dialog Janet voice. Five Things Janet Fraiser Didn't Put in her Medical Reports, for [profile] ducks_in_a_row.

What it is to be a woman in this man's military, on a bad day: [personal profile] teand's Infirmary, After Sam and Janet, post rape-trauma, emotions flying everywhere and walking the line between doctor and friend.

Cleanliness Is Next to Godliness by kaz. Meridian missing scene between Janet and Daniel. Between those moments when Sam says 'he could still be radioactive!' and Daniel tells Jack how his body will fail, Janet is with him in those between times, and her heartbreak and professionalism is very realistic to me. This could squick you out if you are squeemish about cleaning mouths and noses and harsh cleaning solvents, but from my POV it's not too graphic. S5, first person POV.

Every Art and Artifice by the stylus Beautiful and heartbreaking backstory for Janet, nicely explores the irony of healer/soldier, and is a brilliant character study.

Quarantine by Joag. Very talented writer here taking on Daniel's POV as he and the rest of the team get sick off world and simultaneously take care of each other with limited means. The end particularly spoke to me because I've had declarations of love and marriage from recovering patients, and it never gets old. Plus, I have this thing about character voices, and Daniel's is very well done here. Short, gen, lovely.

And, because I haven't pointedly recc'd this before on LJ but have shouted to the rooftops how much I love in other venues, I rec now: Dinner With Janet by sideburns. = [personal profile] alyburns on LJ J/D, Janet's POV, Late Season 7, pretty marvelously wonderful. And I LOVE Janet. Note the caps, so a fic set after Heroes that works with canon and still earns my LOVE (and detailed gushy f/b)? Uh huh. LOVE, people.

And, while we're on Janet, Rocketchick's Before Knowing Remembers is also wonderous. It's the rare femslash rec, but worth it, really worth it, for extraordinary use of canon, continuity, Cassandra, AUs.... bloody marvelously crafted story. You might also check out her Janet vid Where Do I Begin?, which is unspeakably well done with fantastic music.
minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)
reccer's note: I'm doing my best to clean up these lists as I repost them to Dreamwidth, including updating them with all recent recs. I would greatly, greatly appreciate help finding broken links and repairing them. Thanks in advance.

Just in case there are a few fen out there who haven't realized it yet, I have become a massive fan of Teal'c over the course of my Stargate fannish life. He wasn't my in to Stargate, but by Jove, he's the reason I've stuck around.

I have meta on Teal'c that goes on at some length as to his wonderfulness; you can find it (recs and more meta) through these links:

Teal'c meta introduction (canon, voice, team role)

IBARW post on Teal'c's awesomeness (The finale and Teal'c's arc throughout the seasons accepting his past and the Gods)

The Teal'c translation post (The four 'describe how Teal'c would...'s as well as a compare and contrast with the rest of SG-1, original flavor. Dialog heavy.)

My Teal'c stories are here:

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, a reel_sg1 story),

Five Things Teal'c Learned in Fifty Years (Teal'c, Teal'c/Sam/Cameron, S10, spoilers for Unending),

Footsoldiers on Uneven Ground (Bra'tac, with Teal'c's backstory),

Stadium Seating (Teal'c/Cameron, but non-explicit--I referred to this as the courting fic as I was writing it, 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, which was my first Teal'c story).

Read more... )

Further reading:

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

So we're here on Dreamwidth, which is run by a majority female brain trust, and the only other thing like it that I know of is the Archive of Our Own. So perhaps I shall now mention that Fanlore is open in beta, allowing editing and updating. I had been watching with some mild interest as these things developed, but hadn't really been over to see what was up (after seeing the wreck of the original Stargate page, I mean really! Thanks to [personal profile] stultiloquentia for sorting out that nonsense and writing a sensible description.) So I went by on a pointer, and realized something that got me involved like nothing before had: there was nothing on the Teal'c character page. NOTHING. I, er, might have spent a fair amount of time writing Teal'c backstory into his description as a result, but I burned out before I got to the fic links. I'm not sure whether people *want* to be linked, you know? But if someone wanted to finish the page, including this notion of references (really? What would you reference?) I would be really chuffed. And you can totally link to my meta or fic or whathaveyou, if you choose.
minxy: (vala act your age)
Bite-size fic from the Sam Carter comment-a-thon:

Sam/Teal'c, early seasons, Full Frontal from [livejournal.com profile] shimmeringstar1. Dubiously SFW.

Cam/Sam, with some interesting lack of explanation, Vestry, from [livejournal.com profile] rolleson (host of the drabble-a-thon, props!). NSFW.

A little Jack/Daniel from the [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic community, from [livejournal.com profile] kristy841.

Some Sam and Daniel (with Sam/Jack in the background) plays on competitiveness really effectively. [livejournal.com profile] nandamai's A Little Friendly Whatever from [livejournal.com profile] carnivalofsquee.

Longer fic:

A brilliant project from Dira Sudis to write missing scenes from Stargate early seasons (she's rewatching) that pass the Bechdel Test. This is a fantastic idea, and her first moment is between Sam and Sha're during Children of the Gods. Sisters in Arms, worksafe, from [livejournal.com profile] dsudis.

[fangrrl moment with bonus rec: I have loved Dira's writing ever since I read With the Dying, a Moebius fic of glorious sadness, and Teal'c and Daniel friendship. And glory. And sadness.]

I am thrilled to further recommend a wonderful *Janet* story, S7, pre-Heroes (or absent Heroes, perhaps), in which Janet ends up out in the field with SG-1, surprised by the power dynamics and capabilities of people she's used to mending. It's truly wonderful. Adrenaline from BetaCandy.

[fangrrl rec moment number 2: BetaCandy also wrote the early season's stories Acid Worms, Assess This (speaking of Janet stories) and (I'm limiting myself to three, I swear!) Mostly Harmless ]

Okay, okay, you know what? MORE JANET. This is amazing truthiness, or something. Sex as truth, as only [livejournal.com profile] paian can make it (well, other people can too, obvs, but Komos has a gift, I feel.) Visibilium Omnium et Invisibilium is Janet/Jack, really honest and good people who take great comfort in one another dealing with the need for greater intimacy after loss. When each has failed at intimacy before, and the risk of failure is great. Janet and Jack established relationship of sorts, post-Meridian (season five). NSFW.

And nearly Janet! Well, it's Cassie. And season 8 or 9, which means that [livejournal.com profile] annerbhp introduces Cassie to Vala. It's wonderful. Surrogate, which is Cass growing up a little, but still just as snarky as any kid exposed to Jack ought to be. A really nice unexpected friendship.

So, just to prove that I'm not *just* about the wonderful secondary characters and brilliant friendships and less-than-common pairings in this fandom, I give you:

Jack/Daniel (oh, that connection.) Instantaneous Old Married Love. [livejournal.com profile] dragojustine's Inside the Defenses. It's a set of interrelated scenes. NSFW, (fade to black.)

And first person Daniel. Which means the curlycue thought processes that sometimes don't notice important things, and sometimes do notice, with laser beam focus. Speaking Jack from [livejournal.com profile] cplberen is a nice logical progression to relationship. NSFW.

I'll catch up on other fandoms in a bit. This'll do for now.
minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)
Oy, guys. I've had a couple of months here that have been crazy. Beyond usual craziness, I moved, got in a car accident, had massive traveling issues for the holidays, have been fighting with my advisor so incessantly at work that I think I'm going to leave either in May or at the end of the summer (we're in negotiations on that point,) and have become a closed-beta tester for Dreamwidth.

And throughout it all, you guys have been entertaining me with stories. And I, without internet at home (but armed with a prodigious number of tabs open with stories to read) have not been leaving nearly the amount of feedback I used to manage.

So it's high time to at least recommend the stories that I have so relied on for a happy, sane, or otherwise predictably smutty end to some of the craziest days ever.

Which means I need to tell you about a new fandom I've been reading. Now, I've seen the canon, and I loved the canon, but it's the kind of show that is quite happily derivative fiction taking massive, massive liberties with the original universe. (If that's not your thing, or you take exception to messing with beloved Arthurian mythos, I will understand if you skip this recs post.)

I refer, of course, to the BBC's Merlin. Which I will now describe so that you know all you need to know if you want to just read the fic, but the show itself is quite pretty. )
minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (French Quarter at Night by Diane Millsap)
Some stunning events of the last few days have busted me out of obsessing about y'all's NaNoWriMo projects and reminded me of this stunning collection of stuff I been reading.

We shall attempt this with efficiency.


New from [livejournal.com profile] cofax7, which should get your attention (and what might go through your head is: brilliant gen, with amazing characterization, likely fascinating structure and amazing world-building.) Walkabout (gen, PG, SG-1) Jack, alone at the end of the world and getting past it. The world building will knock you, and the Jack characterization will knock you out. Gen. Worksafe. For [livejournal.com profile] apocalypse_kree

Early seasons Janet and Sam friendship: Three Meetings by [livejournal.com profile] kejsarinna. Gen, worksafe.

Some recent work from [livejournal.com profile] paian: Five Things Daniel Would Do With Time Loops (pretty adorable, Jack/Daniel-ish, but worksafe) and Five TV programs that Teal'c records so he never misses an episode, which is a fantastic mix of gravitas, empathy and humor (worksafe.)

This is what happens when [livejournal.com profile] kazbaby takes on Jack and Continuum: True Blue. Good Jack voice, good Cameron voice, and an amazing idea because, yeah, paradoxes and rules be damned, SG-1 makes sure there own get the information they need to save the day. Kind of amazing that this is how easily Jack and Cam would understand one another, eh? 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.

Dr. Who/Chronicles of Narnia

Yes, okay, I know, but it totally works. Spoilers for the series of books, not just the movie, but wonderful interaction in the crossover between Susan and the Doctor. From a World More Full of Weeping. Worksafe, from [livejournal.com profile] azarsuerte.


I have to caveat this one by saying I kind of wish I could beta the end, but all the points leading up to it are pretty fucking brilliant, and the Rodney voice is one of the best I've read: Or Something Like It, is John and Rodney from [livejournal.com profile] semivowel, in which truth serum (or the Pegasus equivalent of it) works shockingly well on John and doesn't wear off before the rescue arrives. Just the idea of one of the John/Rodney duo of uncommunicativeness compulsively talking about his feelings is pretty hilarious. But then when Rodney resorts to spreadsheets to solve the problem, I don't know how you manage to not snort whatever you were drinking. Not worksafe (largely due to the snorting of drinks problem, but for other reasons too.)

On the difference between pre-series Rodney and Season 5 Rodney: Rewind, Reboot, Restore. Sheppard/McKay (interrupted,) and a neat exploration of the effect people have on each other, and what shared experience does. Worksafe, from [livejournal.com profile] rheanna27.

And the kind of intimacy that allows for openness, an in-character study (through sex!) that's really sweet in a completely not-saccarine way. A Place to Stand, John/Rodney by [livejournal.com profile] mmmchelle.

And for the angsty drama: future fic (if you liked Freedom's Just Another... oh, never mind) I don't know how to frame a recommendation for this story without referencing the tropes it squarely turns on it's head. It's Rodney as a parent, but not a miraculously good one. Well intentioned, yes, but this man is *flawed*, and it's more enduring than the inexplicable attraction kids seem to have for McKay. It's a future story, but not one that glories in the past. There's character death, there's loss, and this is McKay on Earth, so, but all of the explanations are so tangled and buried. This is how it truly might go. My Father Before Me. McKay/Sheppard, from the talented [livejournal.com profile] telleer, worksafe.

Comfort story back: [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza's New Day at Midnight, in which Rodney never considered, until he did, at which point he will claim that he knew all along. Not worksafe, and John is, oh, *John.*


a crazy kind of plausible AU-genderswitch-end game from [livejournal.com profile] rivkat: Double Cross. Long and well done and plotty and fantastic, man, but not worksafe in the slightest. I think it might tweak some incest squicks, though it's not slash, and I don't even know whether you have to warn for incest in this fandom any more, but this one's hard to characterize. It's wonderous in it's messiness, though.


(No, I haven't seen this yet, but I totally d/l-ed the first episode and I'm going to start watching, probably. It's hard to resist y'all when you're being all squeeful about a new show. I gotta check it out!)

This is from the artist formerly known as Danvers, gen, technically, but there are shades of slash. Feels very organic, distracted, caring and oblivious. Powerful men and their illusions. Sentry, worksafe.


For the [livejournal.com profile] apocalyptothon, again (we begin and end with the apocalypse,) from [livejournal.com profile] escritoireazul, River and her ghosts. Canaries in the Mines, worksafe.

So I might mention that several of the above fics offer links to the Archive of Our Own, and that Fanlore is open in beta, allowing editing and updating. I had been watching with some mild interest as these things developed, but hadn't really been over to see what was up (after seeing the wreck of the original Stargate page, I mean really! Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] stultiloquentia for sorting out that nonesense and writing a sensible description.) So I meandered by on a pointer, and realized something that got me involved like nothing before had: there was nothing on the Teal'c character page. NOZZINK. I, er, might have spent a fair amount of time writing Teal'c backstory into his description as a result, but I burned out before I got to the fic links. I'm not sure whether people *want* to be linked, you know? But if someone wanted to finish the page, including this notion of references (really? What would you reference?) I would be really chuffed. And you can totally link to my meta or fic or whathaveyou, if you choose.

And someone should do something about the Sam page.
minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (French Quarter at Night by Diane Millsap)
You know how, when you're writing, you sometimes get the feeling that you're trying to do something you haven't done before, and you haven't quite sorted out the details of how that's going to actually happen? I'm there with my current story, which feels dangerously epic, but so far is being written in my normal, fairly terse style; it feels like something is missing.

Then I (re)read this: [livejournal.com profile] frostfire_17's At The Hour When We Are Trembling. [livejournal.com profile] thefourthvine recommended the story the other day (in an SGA recs post, actually), and it really is that good. If you haven't read this extraordinary SG-1/SGA crossover apocafic, you're in for a really fantastic yarn. Well crafted, incredibly well characterized, and a surprising pairing between the last two men on Earth (not really, but they feel like they are.) Slash. Novel-length.

Anyway, I'm indebted because reading that story clicked a few things over in my head, and I have a framework, I have a notion of an outline for the next bit, and I have a purpose for my guys, even if it's just traveling for the moment.

Other recs:

If you like apocafic (and who doesn't?) then you should also read [livejournal.com profile] dragojustine's The Stars Up Above You Feel Wrong, for the interminable wait while other people be the heroes. Banters and trying not to think about it and everything just a little sharp. A pointed little ficlet. Team, worksafe, SG-1. Set prior to Forever In A Day, so earlier seasons.

[livejournal.com profile] 6beforelunch has a sweet aftermath story, where Cam picks them up and puts them in a room and hopes they come together. The fatigue is palpable, their perceived weakness is heartbreaking, and it's so sweet to see them rely on each other. A little bit of catharsis: And There's Screaming in the Stillness (SG1, PG-13, team)

[livejournal.com profile] paian takes a long walk through all the landmines that get planted in a relationship when you don't have the time for emotional honesty. The resulting weekend is filled with revelations that feel like ripping off a band-aid. The Jack and Daniel of her 'verses, though, are believably capable of talking through their problems if they must, and I love that her Jack, even though he can talk through something, still prefers to show what he means. This story is very NSFW, and not easy, but I think it's kind of wonderful. Under Wraps Jack/Daniel, SG-1, NC-17 (for just a lot of bouncing in and out of bed in various stages of emotional intimacy).

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.

Is there a pairing that Jane *can't* write? I'm just asking. I think she sold Jack/Teal'c at one point, even. Such skills.

Back from the mixed up files of stuff written a while ago: [livejournal.com profile] destina's Payment for Charon, which is early season's Jack/Daniel, with all the tangled emotions and upheavals and heartbreak that implies, and moreso. It's a wonderful tug on your heartstrings. Jack/Daniel, not safe for work, I'd say.

And more early seasons, yay! This is a Crystal Skull ficlet, worksafe: Que Sera Sera, from [livejournal.com profile] jd_junkie. Not precisely gen, but it's a worksafe kind of slash. And an edged teasing that still looks out for their own.

And one last Jack/Daniel from [livejournal.com profile] dragojustine: an unnamed (unimportant) argument, a moment between where choices are made, and then a universe of possibilities opened up. Lovely ficlet. Fighting Insticts. Jack/Daniel first time almost, safe for work.

I think I'll hold to SG-1 recs today. I have a few others in different fandoms, but they'll keep.

Also, there's the pimp your top five favorite stories author meme going around. [livejournal.com profile] abyssinia4077 has a partial list of authors here. (Bless the librarians.)

Aaaaaaaand I AM LAME and I forgot [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic (not because she's forgettable, either, because I am lame.) (Certainly not because she hasn't written anything, you know?)

So, Syne has been a writing fool lately. In her LJ, you will find:

Not just early seasons gun-training and loggerheads with Daniel, but Jack commanding in the first part of season 1: still sorting out personalities and navigating a new team. Extraordinary moment that would have turned out so differently at any other time in the series. Live Fire, gen, Jack and Daniel.

The Only Winning Move is wacky SG-1 training exercises set in early Season 7, when the team was renegotiating all it's dynamics as Daniel regains memories. A pretty hilarious romp that by-the-way reveals a great deal about the characters as they play with skill and cunning. Also gen, also worksafe.

Then there's an ongoing series she has about Cameron and Sam's friendship before Cam joined the F-302 program, before he joined SG-1. The association is so easy to believe, and the notion that they'd have a relationship like this is not a big stretch. Christmases over the run of the show, this is Season, what, 3? Right after Sam rescues her father in Jolinar's Memories. Bound To. This is Cam wondering where she is, and the rest of the team wondering who he is.

Stories from the Mezzanine AU that Syne wrote with [livejournal.com profile] ivorygates:

Both Hands is a coda to the stories that came before, established relationship and a need that Daniel hadn't seen, and learns to meet. The ways that these three navigate a poly relationship, and give and take and support are awe-inspiring. Not safe for work, really really, poly, kink, AU. Cammie/JD/Daniel.

Early years for Cammie and JD include all manner of needs of their own; Love is a Verb is Cammie's, how she needs, how she's cared for, and what they learn. Not safe for work (NOT!) but an extraordinary story of disability and limits and choices and care.

[livejournal.com profile] synecdochic also finished the second novel in the extraordinary back-of-the-envelope AU Broken Wings. Titled A Howling in the Factory Yard, you start the healing of Jack's clone (called JD)'s first years (Dial Tones), the redepmtion that Jack finds as a result of associating with him (Carthago Delenga Este) and then the slippery slide of identity, home, breaking and the faith that you can reopen old wounds and find a way to heal the scars over again. It's the storm after the eye, and luckily enough the Prologue for After (book 3) has already been written as a promise.

recs post

minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Teal'c falls)
From [livejournal.com profile] destina, a lovely Supernatural gen story. Three Gifts Sam gave Dean (whether he wanted them or not) is backstory and the build to everything the boys were when we met them. Worksafe, gen.

Aeryn. by Melymbrosia Outcast. That has to be canon. I know I've recced it before too, but del.ic.ious is being wierd, and why not rerec a classic? Farscape, gen, but aggressively gen (as RW says) because Aeryn is never a safe character to visit. S1, but there are mild S3 references.

A fitting followup might be [livejournal.com profile] troyswann's A More Genial Heaven, with Aeryn keeping watch over John-Falling. John as alien, and the original character more dynamic than anyone expects. Set firmly just post-Liars, Guns and Money III, Farscape, S3. Gen.

Continuum SG-1 fic from kazbaby: After All the Roads of My Life. I love Continuum fic. There is so much there that we weren't told.

SGA, and [livejournal.com profile] toft_froggy bringing the smut (and smut this is, make no mistake, it's just that there is also a lot of story and characterization in there also.) Healing Station Argh. In which Pegasus has cable and they don't need your birth control methods, thanks so much, though, Milky Way. Very NC-17, poly, wonderful characterization of everyone on the team, even as they get down and dirty. S4, but no particular episode. Not worksafe.

A fantastic McKay/Sheppard on their own particular path to getting there, Clear Daylight, in which they still have relationships with girls, family and team, and they still cannot hold a meaningful conversation about feelings to save their souls, but the need between them is visceral. From [livejournal.com profile] nym777, not worksafe, through current episodes.

And with a derivative story of a b-story in an AU of SG-1, I give you [livejournal.com profile] princessofg's In the Ashes of Carthage. This is Sam and Jack of [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic's Broken Wings 'verse (which is two novels of wonder and counting) but this story I think I'd rec regardless of whether you're interested in that AU. This is Sam and Jack warily and stealthily creeping their way towards an open, adult relationship, and it's glorious to see them find a moment of happiness together, eyes wide open.

While we're talking about [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic, I'll point you to a series she's doing detailing Cameron and Sam's friendship across Christmases in the years before Cam was recruited into the Stargate program. It's wonderful to see a close friendship when Sam as we met her had had so many people let her down, and Cam's outsiders perspective is wonderful and concerned. Bound To is Sam's third year in the program, just post-The Devil You Know and Jolinar's Memories. Some references to a past relationship between Cameron and Sam (sometimes within the series), but this story is gen and worksafe.

Lastly, a nice little set of insights on Teal'c's early few months in the Stargate Program; perspective and well-balanced understanding of consequences. [livejournal.com profile] annienau08's Teal'c Ficlet, early season 1, through bloodlines, gen, worksafe.
minxy: (vala act your age)
It always feels like it's been such a long time since I did this. But. However. Therefore.

I think people could use a reminder of just how many happy places can be found in and about fandom. This is going to be a happy place kind of recs list.

Recommended fanfiction:

Some of the most fantastic meta ever to grace our pages, [livejournal.com profile] gwyn_r defines the broccoli test: history, usage and application thereof. Serious awesomeness there. And here, katie_m documents a rather funny application. I'll just link the whole quotedump because it has some brilliant snark in there.


[livejournal.com profile] ivorygates brings the genderswap, in the 'if they were and always had been women' sense. There's greater history here if you follow IG and her evil partner in evilness Synecdochic, because they individually and together have pretty thoroughly explored both Daniel and Cameron if-they-were-women in grand universes of stories. But this one stands alone, if you care to read it as such, and there are greater wonderful aftershocks in considering an SG-1 that is three-quarters women. Daniel-as-a-female, Cameron-as-a-female, Sam and Teal'c, Season 9. Take Back Plenty (Bellemettle). Gen, AU, team, worksafe and a happy thing.

[livejournal.com profile] troyswann dabbles in Farscape with an elegant, alien, communication and lack thereof. Aeryn and John, Voila, for [livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong. Incredible atmosphere and stunning dialog, not to be missed.

My happy place is the ocean, and generally, lately, this involves a canoe. Imagine my suprise when Jack is of the same mind (he paddles a different kind of canoe, but I'm not going to quibble about details.) [livejournal.com profile] stultiloquentia gives us Meditation, a beautiful little study of Jack and the people who matter to him, even when they're still snoring away back at the cabin. S8's Moebius, but no spoilers. Worksafe.

[livejournal.com profile] dragojustine, fairly new to SG-1 writing, gives a lovely Jack/Daniel Five First Kisses, hard and soft and heartbreaking and close and distanced all at once.

Fantastic crossover concept between The Bourne movies and SGA, a sexy slashy thing between Jason and John, and twisty and hot and wonderful. Jack is particularly interesting. And That's For Remembrance by [livejournal.com profile] seperis. Not worksafe. Jason/John. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] green_grrl for the link when Delicious and I failed to communicate.

A John/Rodney happy place: Five Lies John Told, by [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza, in which John is driven, not only to honesty, but to compulsive talking about feelings to almost everyone, which is so sweetly, terrifyingly, in character. Worksafe, mostly. PG-13.

And more John/Rodney, only this is established relationship without the compulsive talking. In fact, there is manly not-talking, with is possibly my favorite slash trope ever. [livejournal.com profile] helenish's Selfish. Really not worksafe (it's smutty, folks.)

And a classic psychological thriller (it's a slash fic! Get it? Sorry) from Torch: Heart of Glass. Interesting and wierd ancients with their inventions, slash, brilliance, love and saving of the day. Very well done. Not worksafe, I don't think.

Also, [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).

And because I can, I'm going to point you at my latest: Without Fear of Wind or Vertigo, spoilers for Unending.
minxy: (Ronon scholar)
I spent the weekend travelling over ocean, via man and woman-power, 30 miles to the islands just off the shore of my town. Most people take the dayboat; we go by outrigger canoe and camp for two nights. It was epic. Also, I have crossed the line from 'pleasantly tan' to 'California surfer chic' or, as we in Scifi fandoms may better understand: 'so freakishly out of proportion with eye and hair color lighter than skin tone, it is clear that the biped standing before you is an alien of some kind.'

But I'm embracing that my lifestyle here has some drawbacks. Like the fact that my biceps are larger than some (skinny) guy's I know. But anyway.

(Did you need someone squashed? I could totally smash anyone my flist needed squashed, srsly.)

While I was away, it turned over into International Blog Against Racism Week 2008 ([community profile] ibarw)! This is frequently an occasion for me to fangrrl Teal'c and his epic awesomness, but this year (unless for some reason I come up with something to say about Teal'c) I shall most likely blog about the books I read for [livejournal.com profile] 50books_poc which was intended to encourage reading of books by authors of color. I didn't manage 50, I don't think, but there are some incredible authors that really really deserve pimping, so that post is coming.

[eta: past Teal'c meta includes this post, this one, aaaaaaaand, yes, this one. There are many fic recs in there too, as you may imagine.]

I shall at this point, though, just take a moment to self pimp and tell you that I have written yet another Teal'c story. Only this is Teal'c's friendship with VALA, which felt like such an odd thing to take on, and now I've written it, I'm shocked that there aren't *more* Teal'c and Vala stories. I mean, is that not a fascinating friendship? And they clearly get along so well despite having every reason not to.

Anyway, at the intersection of [livejournal.com profile] ibarw and the [livejournal.com profile] gateverse_remix, I give you: Without Fear of Wind or Vertigo (the Joker's Wild remix). Worksafe, spoilers for the series finale. My story, yay! Remix of [livejournal.com profile] holdouttrout's fantastic Jester's Silence. Also gen, also worksafe.

It is also the one week anniversary of the Gateverse Remix 2008! (Link goes to the masterlist) All stories went live last week, and the last straggler late stories should be rolling in over the next day or two. As such, allow me to point you to a couple of the OUTSTANDING remixes that came in this year (not a complete list, obviously, go check out the masterlist and feed the authors yay!)

My very favorite set of stories (original and remix) are from [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic and [livejournal.com profile] raqs, respectively. They are the story of Daniel struggling to come home, and Jack figuring out what he has and what he needs. Beautiful, psychologically complex, and the remix adds an incredible layer with Daniel's smart, smart and detached POV. There are slash undertones, and it's recovery from a complex injury, but no one does PTSD like these authors do. Strongly recommended. all men will be sailors until the sea shall free them from [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic and ...and the truth shall set you free (the freedom remix) from [livejournal.com profile] raqs. R rated, but worksafe-ish.

[livejournal.com profile] synecdochic's remix this year was a Lovecraft-style remix of a dream [livejournal.com profile] sidlj wrote for Daniel. In the Fullness of Time (The Shores of Lost Carcosa Remix) is from Sid's In the Fullness of Time. I love this for the change in style, as opposed to POV, which takes it from a strange and revealing dream to a remarkably creepy story of love vs. madness in the search for the Lost City. Does anyone else remember Syne remixing a dream in funky style last year for the remix? I'd say she was falling into a pattern, except all of these are so clearly not what you expect. Fascinating to watch an author do such unusual things, really.

Another favorite is the Atlantis story blinking in the sun from [livejournal.com profile] minnow1212. This is a Teyla who belongs, who negotiates and translates and is patient and wonderful. Elizabeth is here in her memories, as are Athosians that few remember except herself, her relationship with Ronon is elegant friendship and John and Rodney are so alien and fond. Extraordinary story, a remix of [livejournal.com profile] raisintorte's Black Light in a Shady Alien Motel Room, John POV. Possibly not worksafe due to creative euphemisms.

Lastly, with the award for most dramatic structural remix, [livejournal.com profile] rigel_7 did a multimedia remix (Spatial Orientation, appropriately) of [livejournal.com profile] lokei's Learning Curve (Tilt). Fantastic tone, and I adored the advertisements in the magazine layout. Worksafe.
minxy: (vala act your age)
Yes, I know it's been ages, but I had a birthday and some traveling and then I was almost overcome by a mean ol' rotten COLD... and I bin readin' the whole time, aight?

Aight then. This is the good stuff:

(minxy: purveyor of the very best addictive Stargate fanfic since, oh, 2005)

(underscores are optional.)

For whatever reason, I've got some great McKay/Sheppard for you, and taken as a whole they are *fascinating* together.

[livejournal.com profile] minervacat's I'd Go Home If I Knew How to Get There is a classic. I've probably recced it before, actually. It's one of my favorite characterizations of John, where self-awareness is always just out of reach, and the prose and structure work so well to emphasize that. McKay/Sheppard, John POV, PG rated, I would say.

Compare *that*, folks, with the quite rightly heralded If You Want to Kiss the Sky from [livejournal.com profile] siegeofangles. Which turns a lot of the tropes we base slash around right the fuck on their asses. It works the anti-tropes well, it tells a fascinating story and in the reverse concepts, reveals a *lot*. Not worksafe. Poly.

Then, you know, smut: The Rite of Nereeth from [livejournal.com profile] mmmchelle. Once again interesting themes of intimacy and relationships and marriage, etc. Only this time, with porn. Not worksafe. Really not worksafe. Threesome.

And, bringing it all back together, the ArtWord response from Lim and Speranza: S is for Space. Story and vid! Two in one!

Right, on to the SG-1 type things.

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.

[livejournal.com profile] surreallis is taking prompts for the next round of [livejournal.com profile] apocalypse_kree (I *love* submitting prompts, man. Love.) so it's only fitting to recommend something she wrote for the occasion last year. Angst, death and a really rare pairing; it's wonderful. Bend Low Towards the Dirt is harsh realizations and coping and anger and coming back to the only person who knows. Jack/Cam, at the end of the world. R rated.

Jack and Daniel from [livejournal.com profile] dragojustine (who is newer to SG-1 but writing some great Jack/Daniel stuff.) In a brilliant set of counterpoints within contrasts, the classic relationship between Jack and Daniel brought to bear in fantastic characterization on a new relationship. PG rated, maybe, definitely worksafe, but not light. Timing. Jack/Daniel and team. Worksafe. I wanna say it's early seasons possibly.

And Continuum is released officially in, what, four days? Here are two very nice reactions for you when you see it (OMG, SO GOOD.)

[livejournal.com profile] synecdochic has a reaction to Continuum (which more or less starts and ends with EEEEEEEE!) followed by a ficlet titled June 24th, 2008 (1600-1630 Zulu). Sam, being wonderfully Sam and in command.

[livejournal.com profile] kazbaby created a gorgeous companion vid, which (I think I can say without spoiling) perfectly encompasses the fatigue of fighting for ten years +, but then what happens when our team are called to stand and fight again. Just beautiful. Oh, *team*. Ride On.
minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (French Quarter at Night by Diane Millsap)
New SG-1 writer, taking the plunge into fandom by writing a scorching, nicely kinky Daniel/Jack. This circumvents cliche to be a very nice discovery of unknown turn-ons, in character and really smoking hot. Hell of a Sight is from [livejournal.com profile] dragojustine. Go continue to overwhelm her with the kindness of fandom, yes? NOT worksafe, though it's not for crude language per se, it's just really sexy.

(which suddenly reminds me of the terribly intimate Cam/Teal'c fic that [livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong wrote in which *they never actually kiss*. Isn't that a marvelous notion? Intimate without a kiss, sexy without crude language, love without contact, history without tradition.)

And just to show that Cameron can little black dress with the best of them: [livejournal.com profile] medie wrote a luscious threesome of a Sweet Charity fic at [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic's behest. And Think Of Stargate Command is a wonderful freshman vs. senior, new vs. old hat, want with a nice helping of 'but must it go down like this?' and possibly my favorite: where the voyeurism of the AMTDI situation is distracting as hell, rather than an unexpected kink. Just brings a nice dose of realism to the reactions that makes the sweetness of the threesome that much more. Not worksafe, sg1, threesome, voyeurism, AMTDI.

[livejournal.com profile] kernezelda has a moment of connection in genuinely hard aftermath. Firefly, River and Mal, a small thing, in character, and enough for a moment. In the Night (Setting Sail Remix). For the remix the drabble challenge, short and worksafe.

(I love remixes, you know. I even kind of love mine so far. How y'all doin'?)

[livejournal.com profile] abyssinia4077 wrote that most extraordinary of stories, a Sam and Jack friendship story that is so incredibly in character that no ship or gen goggles are required. The passion for the stars here is a truth of them we didn't see enough of in canon, but the poignancy of it maybe couldn't have been rendered as effectively as it is here. Magnificent Desolation, for the [livejournal.com profile] sg1friendathon. Worksafe, gen.

Another from that ficathon 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.

An intense S2 John and Rodney friendship story from [livejournal.com profile] maisierita: After, worksafe, gen, SGA.

And a gorgeous Sam, solo fic, spoilers for later seasons of SGA and SG-1. Fantasy pairings all over the place and all kinds of slashy suspicions and a certain wistfulness in the release. I love Sam, solo, and this is a particularly sweet night after a first day on the job. The M in Team from [livejournal.com profile] mmmchelle. Not worksafe, multiple (fantasy) pairings, slash, het, femmeslash.

Aw, and [livejournal.com profile] thegrrrl2002 also! A kink and cliche fic (done fabulously) to the prompt of body switch. So it's John and Rodney, a switch, and good times. I dare you not to grin. Caught, not worksafe, SGA.

This is a sweet little tag to another fic that [livejournal.com profile] whimsicalwhims wrote (a five things, I think, and I'm sure I've read it too, but this stands alone as a pretty morning after.) The relationships between Daniel and Jack and Cameron are gorgeously complex and minimally hinted at, feeling like so many deep lakes. Of Fish and Flowers. Worksafe, actually, it's all about the relationships.

And, in a gift of fannish opulence, a *second* Jack and Daniel rec! This is fantasy and distance by choice, echoing past forced distance, and it's fascinating the connection and distance they have achieved. Fantasia, from [livejournal.com profile] starting_gate, not worksafe.

A tiny little Jonas ficlet, a remedy for his own finale, and he deserves it, the puppy. He and Mitchell would have gotten on so well. From [livejournal.com profile] beanpot, worksafe.

And lastly, from the 'I'm just sure I've recced this before and del.i.cious is messing with me' file: I'd Go Home If I Knew How To Get There by [livejournal.com profile] minervacat. This is John being concussed and oblivious, and Rodney being there and hypochondriac on John's behalf, and the writing is superb and the story is sweet. Worksafe.

DONE! OMG I'M CAUGHT UP! *passes the hell out*
minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)
A few days ago (I could look it up, I suppose) I did that meme where you ask people to quote your writing back at you, and this neat thing happened where some Gateverse newbies stepped up and introduced themselves. They're here for the writing, they're here for recs, and I thought, heck, things are slow with writing lately, how about an early seasons recs list?

A clear mid-point in Stargate SG-1 is both relevant to story as well as being the actual mid-point, but any stories specific to season 5 will be at the end and with minimal spoilers in the rec itself. [disclaimer: as always with the recs list, I'll provide you with all the information I can so you get what you're craving, but the kitchen can't do anything if your food is too spicy, please don't send it back.]

For [livejournal.com profile] ainsley, [livejournal.com profile] conn8d and [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2,

Compiled from previous recs, Stargate SG-1 stories, seasons 1-4:

The specifically Season 1 fic recs post.

Gen fic: )

Slash fic: )

Ship fic: )

Beyond the bounds of those classifications, and therefore some of my favorites: )

Crossovers:  )

And Season 5: ).

My stuff (also known as blatant self-pimping) )

Your recs, self-pimping and other contributions in the comments are also most welcome.
minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)
Yes, hello, this is me, back with my now functioning computer, Daniel. (I actually really liked Nebari as a name, but y'all were pretty enthusiastic about Daniel, and a mandate from the masses, etc.)

I suspect I missed lots and lots of good stuff whilst away from my easy tagging system, so apologies there. And some of this is neither recs from the archives nor immediately recent, but I think you guys can handle that. I have faith.

I have a couple of novel(la) length recs at the end, but we'll do a nice, slow build, I think.

Quick reads:

[livejournal.com profile] grammarwoman once dropped a comment fic prompt that came back a full-grown plot. So here she is, navigating Southern manners and Galaxy-wide acknowledged trading habits (trust and all,) and When Harry Met Sally. This is Vala's voice as true to character as I've seen, extraordinary breasts and all, and this is Cameron just doing his level best to be *good*, seduction scenes be damned. Climbing the Walls, Cameron and Vala, friendship, Vala is never worksafe.

CRACK. You've seen references to this story, now see it for yourself! The one where they sometimes hang out in the same Girl Scout Cookie box: The Epic Tale of Rodney & John, Two Girl Scout Cookies in Love, by [livejournal.com profile] bitter_crimson. Deeply cracked, and it would be worksafe, except for the marshmallow thing.

And for something completely different, Teyla being intuitive, fierce, right and nearly at a loss for words. Amazing. And needed. Second Verse (Same as the First) by [livejournal.com profile] friendshipper. Teyla and team, gen-ish.

Saving John from [livejournal.com profile] nixa_jane is eery and evocative and a lovely connection. Slash or friendship, depending on your goggles. Worksafe. John and Rodney, SGA.

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.

A Mal/Simon (my favorite pairing aside from Zoe/Wash) Firefly fic! Smooth is a job that Simon is oddly qualified for, and it's a bit of a shock, and it certainly goes a bit sideways, and a bit cynical, and a little more sly. It's good times, not worksafe, though.

[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.

Vala and Jonas, of all people, and it really works. From [livejournal.com profile] kalquessa for a commentficathon that [livejournal.com profile] abyssinia4077 ran, but the story got away from her. Aggravated Destruction of Property, SG-1, Vala, Jonas, S10ish, gen.

From [livejournal.com profile] paian, a dark piece that fights as much as it sexes it up: Steal Dancing, Jack/Vala, references to multiple partners and infidelity, both het and slash. Psychologically complex, showcases how brilliant those two characters can be. Not Worksafe.

Another fine story from [livejournal.com profile] choc_fic crossed Farscape with Firefly and created Ends in Fire, a Crais & Zoe story that just boggles the mind with how well it suits. From [livejournal.com profile] ijemanja, worksafe.

A Sam in Atlantis story from [livejournal.com profile] destina: Where You Hang Your Hat. Challenges and kindnesses and second-guessing everything until she doesn't anymore. Beautiful homecoming. Worksafe.

A Wierd Jack and Daniel Snippet from Salieri ([livejournal.com profile] troyswann), who, as you know, Bob, has a mind for spaces and atmosphere that few can rival. She's amazing, the way she sets a scene.

Coincidentally, this next story was written *for* Sal (happy birthday to us!) by [livejournal.com profile] teand. This is bittersweet Sam and Vala, saying goodbye. Lest Old Acquaintance, worksafe, friendship. Nearly Sam in Atlantis.

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 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

Medium length stories (over 10,000 words, less that Walked Right Out of the Machinery.)

There's this thing about Atlantis where they produce some of the cutest AUs known to man. This one is John having left the military, and Rodney too (or never joined) and they are therefore in the fairly likely occupations of junk shop owner and physics professor. As such, it's not a big leap to go there as a reader, and it's very easy to stay in this story once it's begun. Junk Cheap, by [livejournal.com profile] devildoll, is Sheppard/McKay, SGA AU, but a close one. R rated.

Weddings, Plural, and a Yak, from [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza, is another kind of psychologically complex, the kind where a character's obliviousness seems like it could compete at the olympic level they're trying so hard. It's a speciality of hers, and it just works so well for John. SGA, John/Rodney, not worksafe.

And now the long stories:

Just as a warm-up, [livejournal.com profile] synedochic and [livejournal.com profile] ivorygates have been posting snippets and continuations in their Mezzanine 'verse. From Syne, Hunter S. Thompson-esque bitch sessions from Jack's clone JD over usenet email, and wierdly, it's so appropriate. And you just know that Jack at any age would bitch like a champion entertainer. things that have pissed me off today, part seventeen in a series , time for the yearly letter to billg@microsoft.com, and alright, maybe you have a point about the delivery thing. IG gives us sweet angst and sweet smut: Walking After Midnight (post-All Cats Are Grey) and Linen Service (post-Laundry Day), respectively. If you need a refresher on post, pre's and where the hell all these stories *fall* in that 'verse, I believe the masterlist is here. The smut from IG? Not worksafe. The rest are.

Next, a triumvirate of win and words from Salieri. Couple of years ago now, she wrote a neat neat neat Due South meets Dystopia story called Real Boys that had me reading despite knowing very little about either Due South *or* Phillip K. Dick, actually. It was and is a riveting story. Sal then went and followed it up with a plotty, alas still in progress, story she charmingly calls Space!Mounties. It's just... I can't even explain how charmed I am by those stories. Slash, most of it is worksafe, but some isn't. The worldbuilding is worth shouting over.

As if you needed more proof that I will read outside canons I know if it's Sal writing them, she also wrote an SG-1 crossover with DaVinci's Inquest (and provides a nice primer for the series if you are also unfamiliar). This is a brilliant outsider's POV of our Stargate heroes that charms absolutely. One in the Play of Many, by [livejournal.com profile] troyswann Mostly gen, but there's some Jack/Daniel; I can't remember if that part disqualifies it as worksafe, to be honest.

And finally,

If you can read Walked Right Out of the Machinery and not love it, you might need to defriend me right now. Even if you're not ostensibly a Jack fan, you will love the guy walking around in Jack's skin in this story. It's just... *hand flaily*. (I beta'd this and read it at least three times in the process. Yes, it's a novel; this should tell you something, mah people.) By [livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong, aggressively gen, or, it's not really a *safe* story, but it's gen, and worksafe. And extraordinary.
minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)
A February Weekend Recs List, Part the Third.

Curious and Curiouser a Pushing Daisies/Supernatural crossover of cuteness from [livejournal.com profile] lunarknightz. Worksafe, S2/3 for SPN.

[livejournal.com profile] shrift wrote a wonderful, quirky, in character post-Quarantine, PG-13-rated, revelatory, Best Somethings. mckay/sheppard, sga, worksafe.

[livejournal.com profile] sardonicsmiley wrote cases of mistaken identity, and interesting twist on stereotypes and reactions, and what the team learns from it (mostly what John and Rodney learn) mckay/sheppard, sga, worksafe.

Now I must admit that I believe my del.ici.ous account may be messing with me, because I am utterly sure I've recc'd some of these before, or ought to have done if I saved the rec back in OCTOBER.

Fairly brilliant Jack and Daniel friendship tag for Season 2's Need Spirits (the one with the Native American Aliens) Because" SG-1, PG, gen from [livejournal.com profile] lokei.

Memento Mori by kixxa. Yes, I am so, so late to the brilliant Farscape fic party. This is an AU ending to Look at the Princess, I think. Anyway, frelling brilliant, not that any of you needed me to tell you so. Worksafe.

[livejournal.com profile] maisierita's long, plotty SGA slashfic is fantabulous: Forget Me Not (link goes to part 1 of 5, complete) even the emotional connection with OCs seems reasonable and worthy. Not worksafe, but you could push it. John/Rodney, R rated.

The Problem with Eggnog, Uncommon Thoughts, and Sharing a Bed with Sirius Black, from [livejournal.com profile] xylodemon is my favorite HP pairing (Remus/Sirius, in their Hogwart's days--I prefer to think senior year or something similar) with teasing and revelations and this one just happens to be set on Christmas morning. Slash, and not worksafe.

[livejournal.com profile] dsudis: Stargate SG-1 drabble thing. A S2ish Jack and Daniel friendship story that I am just sure I've recced before. Seriously. Deja vu, here.

The post-Be All My Sins Remembered fic Negotiating Shadows is a great Teyla & team story that gives Rodney's reaction and Teyla knocking a little sense into John. Gen and worksafe from [livejournal.com profile] aesc.

Certain People Got a God Complex by [livejournal.com profile] eleveninches is funny oblivious!John/Rodney, with Teyla and Ronon and Elizabeth being long suffering, and Ford being kind of crazy. Worksafe.


*collapses, in a fit of reccing-exhaustion*
minxy: (Ronon scholar)
A February Weekend Recs List, Part the second.

To continue with the genderswap theme: [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock for 14 Valentines wrote Lustrous, a mckay/sheppard genderswap that fabulously sets up the situation as voluntary, temporary and something McKay finds interesting and fascinating. It's a bit of a twist on the general trope of resisting seeing how the other half lives, and Rodney is characteristically funny about it. NC-17.

[livejournal.com profile] princessofg posted several more parts to her 1950's AU WIP called Maybe It Was Memphis (link goes to part 9) The story itself is evolving to nicely show the trust building up between Jack as a Blue Angles pilot and Daniel as a Professor and government consultant, but the illicitness of the affair and the danger of their situation is really nicely present. NC-17.

Who's Left and Who's Leaving , a fascinating take on apocafic by attrition, from [livejournal.com profile] fiercelydreamed was posted as part of SGA flashfic's Ways to Die Challenge. I don't want to give much away, but it's *fascinating* and highly recommended. Team, gen, worksafe.

It's now been thoroughly jossed by canon, but this is brilliant backstory for John, and a psychologically complex, structurally interesting way towards hooking up with his best friend. [livejournal.com profile] busaikko's Five, Four, Three, Two, One (Zero) (SGA, NC17, mckay/sheppard sga)

[livejournal.com profile] agentotter, who is a rather fabulous writer, wrote the rather amazing Borrowing Freedom, a backstory for Mal that sets up just after the war on Whitefall, without a full work permit, without much hope and without a future. But there's a wonderful horse. Gen.

[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.

[livejournal.com profile] katie_m's remix_redux fic from a few years ago gave me a nice boost of confidence writing poetry for my last story, but this one also has some fantastic strong Sam, and a wonderful outside POV of our strong Sam. It's a brilliant story, very well told. The Sangata, Book 1 (The Ramayana Remix); (Stargate: SG1, Sam Carter, worksafe)

[livejournal.com profile] audrarose's Enough For Me is a cute little 'don't wanna go home in the middle of the night' story. I'm still not sure when I started being okay with rps, but this fandom does wierd things to me. And it's sweet, cuddle, nearly-asleep schmoop. *shrugs* (Jensen/Jared, rps, SPN, NC-17)


The next conversation in the People of Color SF Carnival will be hosted by [livejournal.com profile] ladyjax on the subject of Intraracial Dialog (What Lies Between Us). Defining self and variations between, the ways community calls out and forgives it's own. Links are solicited, through the end of the month.

[livejournal.com profile] abyssinia4077 is hosting a prompted Stargate comment ficathon to cure the February blues, and is taking prompts through the 12th, writing open through the end of the month. Go Here to Prompt, YAY. Gen, smut, crack and kink welcome, no bashing. SGA prompts are a little low right now.
minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)
A February Weekend Recs List, Part the First.

[livejournal.com profile] synecdochic gave us Right Ascension (Daniel/female!Cameron sg1) following directly on from Declination, which are absolutely scorchingly romantic and strong and argumentative and bulletproof. Cameron as a woman is becoming canonical for me in some universe just a half step off from our own. I have absolutely no trouble jumping into full belief in this 'verse, complete with the nurture differences that make Cammie so different from Cam. The whole verse is here, and was to some extent cowritten with [livejournal.com profile] ivorygates. Delination is safe for work, Right Ascension is filled with sexin'.

Who, blissfully, gives us an established relationship coda after the climax (har) of Right Ascension: Contradanse: is Cammie/Daniel, NC-17, trust and belief and faith and becoming. An elegant example of smut telling a larger emotional story.

[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.

From [livejournal.com profile] mmmchelle at [livejournal.com profile] chellefic: a quirky little moment in time (with snark). Aliens Made Them... Sorta, kinda, something. Probed. sga, mckay/sheppard, nsfw.

(If I were a nice person, I would organize these better for you, but...)

from the artist formally known as Danvers: Homecoming (team sga John gen.) I have to admit that sometimes canon and fanon John don't always seem like the same character to me (and I lean towards fanon John, actually) but in stories like this, the distiction disappears and I just feel for him. The Outcast storyline deserved a coda like this. It's sweet and adorable and makes no sense except that it's perfect for these characters to react this way.

The Language That God Speaks, by Liz Barr, is a crossover between Harry Potter and Sandman that rocked my socks with Hermione's smarts, curiosity and rebellious streak. Snape is also interesting and nuanced, and the character of the librarian was cooky and wonderful.

I found that story and others through a comm called [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon, a female characters love fest for the first half of February. It's been a wealth of multifandom strong women stories: crossovers, het, gen, slash, stories, vids, icons, movies, comics, shows. Amazing.

I think I found this there too: Dr. Who, post S3 new series, I believe (I've lost track of the episodes, but don't have a concrete idea of when I'll watch them, so am less concerned with spoilers) originally posted to [livejournal.com profile] rose_lives (Rose Tyler, Defender of the Earth), Go Places (Rose, Mickey, Zoe, PG) is by [livejournal.com profile] livii, and a joyous romp.

Now *this* Dr. Who fic I found through a different comm, this one being [livejournal.com profile] choc_fic (The Characters of Color Love Fest) from a familiar face: Of a Lifetime [Doctor Who, Rita-Anne Smith, Ten, Mickey, G] from [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2 is a phenomenal glimpse at Mickey's grandmother Rita-Anna, who once upon a time, had a run-in with a strange man. The tone is a perfect blend of age and wonder, and the character herself is priceless. I want a whole fandom around her.

Seriously, if Choc_Fic wanted to introduce greater fandom to overlooked characters of color (I think Rita-Anne was on screen for approximately an eye-blink) then it worked. I want this woman to have her own fandom; seeing as how this is incredibly unlikely, I would like to encourage original fic writers to INCLUDE THIS WOMAN IN WHATEVER YOU ARE WRITING. This will, likely, necessitate you going and reading Astrogirl's story, but there you are.

Thank you to everyone who ventured over there to read my story, btw. Much much appreciated. I think I shall post another little link here now: my story. It's not what you'd expect, probably. I'm getting ready to post a commentary on it, actually. Soonish.

A beautiful little Teyla gen story (S4 spoilers, generally) in a sweet, pragmatic moment in time. Alunt Tea [SGA, Teyla, Gen] from [livejournal.com profile] wickedwords. She does a really nice job of taking Teyla to the point of doing something unusual and then explaining why in a story full of character and culture. (I think that's why my Sam/Teal'c fic has stalled out; the lack of explanation for unusual behavior. I ought to go back and reread that one now I've had some distance.) (Teyla gen sga)

[livejournal.com profile] 20thcenturyvole posted a teamy SGA fic called Wet, post-S4 amorphously, it is a gift of a family sort of moment. Cheered me greatly the other night.

To Be Continued...
minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)
update: Whoever said California's weather never changes LIED.

In the Flesh and In the Clod from [livejournal.com profile] troyswann, SG, team, H/C. Amazing, amazing, amazing. Oh, team.

The Thought That Counts by kassrachel, SGA McKay/Sheppard. Planet of the telepaths is always entertaining when you have guys who can repress the way Rodney and John can repress (or be oblivious, as in Rodney's case.)

Just Like Us by [livejournal.com profile] debra_tabor McKay/Sheppard and Lorne/Zelenka. Competitive and funny.

Them Downtown Boys Sure Talk Gritty Firefly/SPN; Kaylee/Dean; adult by [livejournal.com profile] musesfool. Oh, so sweet. And oddly lonely feeling at the same time, but wonderful expectation and connection.

Triplicate recs:

Three from [livejournal.com profile] abyssinia4077: Undertow (Fabulous Sam, fabulous team, H/C, S2) Weep Not For the Past (Daniel and Bra'tac, tag for S8's Threads), Journey of a Thousand Years (Sam, Bra'tac, post-series.)

Three from [livejournal.com profile] cofax7: Ficlet: Sam/Daniel, post-apocalyptic (post S9 apocaficlet) Teal'c, and a bunch of other hookups (post S9, joyful) Five Times Cameron Surpised SG-1 (S9-S10, gen, ouchy, that last one.)

Porn battle:

An SGA/House crossover (backstory) Purple, Crossover, House MD/Stargate Atlantis, House/John Sheppard, haze by [livejournal.com profile] deelaundry

Slip Up, John Sheppard/Cameron Mitchell, captivate, flight, domesticity, mess hall by [livejournal.com profile] selfinduced


Mnemophobia by [livejournal.com profile] tripoli8, Daniel, decension fic of awesome angst, team, gen, SG-1, S7.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] tripoli8's Everything is Alright (my title, because without which, I forget I've read it.) Elegant, angsty Jack/Daniel Abyss AU fic. SG-1, slash, S6, goes AU in S5 somewhere.

All Non-white Things Aren't Swans by [livejournal.com profile] mazily, McKay/Sheppard, v. good Rodney voice, SGA.

I Have a Soft Spot For (and Cannot be Rational About):

His Dark Materials crossovers, in this case, with Supernatural. AU from [livejournal.com profile] kellifer_fic: A Heartbeat At My Feet. Amazing, smart Daemon conceptual verse for Sam and Dean (and John and Bobby.)
