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
This is sex as truth, as only 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 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.

Betacandy, at 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.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

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
. = 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.
