Field Trip, by Eponymous Rose (G)

  • Jul. 17th, 2012 at 9:22 PM
Story: Field Trip
Author's LJ/DWJ: [personal profile] eponymous_rose
Categories: Jonas, character study, season six
Warnings: none
Author's Website: My Fanfiction
Link to story: Field Trip

Why this should be read: This charming, gentle story treats us to Jonas on his very first solo trip outside the Mountain. The imagery is rich and the characterization is perfect as Jonas enjoys cherry pie, his breath of freedom, and the delightful ordinariness of life on Earth.


Leaning back with his tea, he took stock: here he was, a truly astronomical distance from home, enjoying a peaceful breakfast among the inhabitants of another planet, on his day off work at a thrilling place of employment. Granted, he was still being tailed by his very own personal pair of airmen, and his commanding officer seemed to be waiting for him to screw up every few seconds, but all things considered, the life of Jonas Quinn was taking a turn for the better.

Calling all reccers: Season Six recs!

  • Jul. 16th, 2012 at 12:18 PM
Long past time for a new theme here at [community profile] sg1genrecs! This time, we're looking for stories that are set in Season Six, SG-1's stepchild season that's all-too-often neglected by writers. Fics can be episode related or not, but they should be set in S6. The fic doesn't have to be Jonas-specific if it's set in S6 -- recs about stories regarding Abyss or Changeling or Allegiance would be fine, for example. And Jonas-centric fic regarding Meridian/Fallen/Homecoming would be welcome, too.

Feel free to refresh your memory of the comm rules at the FAQ before posting. Official format is included in the FAQ entry and on the comm's profile page. If you choose to tag your own entry (you don't have to do so), please include the season six tag as well as any others that you find appropriate. And if you need a tag that isn't yet available, please comment and let me know.

Valuable Vala recs, and others

  • Jul. 4th, 2012 at 12:15 PM
It's been two weeks since the last rec. Time for another theme, I think!

We only had three fics recced for the valuable Vala theme:

Truth in Fiction, by Cleo the Muse (G)

Vala Alphabet Soup, by Various (PG-13)

Fair Play by penknife (PG)

However, we had several other fics recced during that time, including several by a new reccer, [personal profile] seaboe_muffinchucker (welcome!):

A Common Virtue by Charlie Booker (PG)

This Nest of Sparrows by Charli Booker (PG)

For More Than Country by Regency (R)

Bonded by Tallulah Rasa (not rated by author; PG)

Half-Crazy by Teand (not rated by author; PG)

Thanks to Seaboe and [personal profile] pipisafoat for their recs!

I'll be announcing a new theme shortly; suggestions are, as always, welcome. In the meantime, don't forget that any gen fic can be recced at any time, regardless of theme! And to the 'Murcans out there, hope you're having a happy Fourth. :)
I tried to resist the temptation of rec'ing two Charli Bookers in a row, but my willpower was just not that strong.

Truth in Fiction, by Cleo the Muse (G)

Categories: value of Vala, female friendship, humor, character study
Warnings: none
Author's Website: www.cleothemuse.net
Link to story: Truth in Fiction

Why this should be read: Vala discovers trashy romance novels on a shopping spree with Sam, and the two women share some unexpectedly serious reflections. Great fun, sparkling characterization, and an excellent read!

Title: Half-Crazy
Author's LJ/DWJ: [livejournal.com profile] teand

Why this should be read: Cam's in the hospital, and it's up to his team to make that as painless as possible. Vala eats his chocolates and teaches him about wheelchairs. Daniel brings all of Cam's favorite foods. Sam steals internet access from a General. And Teal'c ... is Teal'c, in all the best ways possible.

Vala Alphabet Soup, by Various (PG-13)

  • May. 23rd, 2012 at 2:19 PM
Title: Vala Alphabet Soup
Author's LJ/DWJ: n/a
Categories: valuable Vala, ep related, character study, friendship, humor, angst, drama, pre-series, post-series
Warnings: none
Author's Webpage/Fic list: n/a
Link to story: Vala Alphabet Soup

Why this should be read: It might be cheating a little to rec the Soup as a whole, especially since I organize the Soups and have actually written one of the fics. :) But here's a chance to read twenty-six great Vala fics at once, by 25 different authors! These are funny and painful and insightful and fluffy and thoughtful in turns, and you'll enjoy every last one of them. Don't forget to follow the links to the authors' individual journals and leave them feedback!
Title: Bonded

Why this should be read: Bad things happen if you leave Daniel at home. Very, very bad things.

Fair Play by penknife (PG)

  • May. 10th, 2012 at 12:22 PM
Title: Fair Play
Author's LJ/DWJ: [livejournal.com profile] penknife
Categories: character: cameron mitchell, character: daniel jackson, character: samantha carter, character: teal'c, character: vala mal doran, era: season 9-10, friendship: teal'c and vala, humor, theme: awesome women, theme: teal'c friendship, theme: valuable vala
Warnings: none
Author's Webpage/Fic list: fic tag @ LJ
Link to story: Fair Play

Why this should be read: This is an excellent look at Vala's early time spent with SG-1, complete with not really fitting in, but even that pales in comparison to the sheer humor running rampant through this fic. Vala cheats. Teal'c lets her cheat. In fact, Teal'c encourages her to cheat and comes up with thieving plans of his own to cheer her up and invents the Tau'ri Right of Gel'a'tin. If anyone can bring out Teal'c's inner troublemaker, it's Vala.

Calling all reccers: Vala recs!

  • May. 10th, 2012 at 1:37 PM
Time for a new theme! We're looking for stories that appreciate the value of Vala. If you know a good gen story that highlights Ms. Mal Doran, we want to see it recced here!

Feel free to refresh your memory of the comm rules at the FAQ before posting. Official format is included in the FAQ entry and on the comm's profile page. If you choose to tag your own entry (you don't have to do so), please include the valuable Vala tag as well as any others that you find appropriate.
