Why this should be read: Here are Moebius!Daniel and AU!Samantha, sitting on the sands of Ancient Egypt. This fic is a rarity: a Moebius!Daniel at peace with the choices he's made, and optimistic about a future that he himself will never get to see... and an AU!Samantha who is ready to hear about the woman she once was, even if it's never going to fit what she is right now.

Why this should be read: So how does Doctor Carter choose to start picking up the pieces at the end of Point of View, after the quantum mirror shuts down? One good possibility is tracking down her reality's Daniel Jackson...

Here is a glimpse of a world shattered by Goa'uld invasion, a Daniel with a different background and history but still very much himself (brilliance, sharpness, and all), and the start of a new beginning of friendship and exploration through the Stargate.

Scotoma, by Rydra Wong (PG-13)

Why this should be read: This stunning AU has Sha're rescued in S6, while Daniel is Ascended. Not only is Sha're powerfully and amazingly herself -- determined, intelligent, with her own cultural perspective -- but the friendship that springs up between her and Sam is wonderful, honest, and real. This is one of my favorite stories, and a real keeper.

Steep Descent by Jb (PG-13)

Why this should be read:
This is definitely one of my favourite descension AUs. In Steep Descent, Daniel returns from ascension in a body that still has radiation sickness. The SGC is at a loss until Shifu shows up, and reveals to Jack that Oma was perhaps not entirely honest with Daniel while he was ascended. The final resolution is, in my opinion, quite awesome, and the ending is very Jack. In between Jb weaves us a story of ascension and all that that implies, and gives us a glimpse of what it might have been like as an Ascended being. She also writes a very good Shifu.

Link to story: 1970

Why this should be read:[personal profile] pipisafoat has turned hir writing skills to the Gateverse, and among a flurry of delightful commentfics at the [community profile] fic_promptly community posted this heart-wrenchingly sad and beautiful fic set in an AU of the episode '1969.' In this version of events, the team doesn't get to go back to the future within a few days; they continue living in the past for at least a year, which opens them to threats they didn't face in the episode. The stranded-in-time story has a deliciously apocaficcy flavor, and pings interestingly off Continuum (and also C. S. Lewis! but that might just be me), and the portrayal of Sam and Daniel's friendship is strong and lovely, but what blew me away was the powerful reveal and the cri de coeur of the ending.

About 841 words.

And These Valleys Unknown, By Nanda (PG)

Link to story: And These Valleys Unknown

Why this should be read: What if the Ancient time ship malfunctioned during the episode "It’s Good To Be King" and stranded Sam and Jack in an unknown time? This is really Sam's story as she (once again) experiences all the pressures of being the only one who can possibly find a way to get them home. Both of the character voices are very believable. Simply written and full of rich detail, I could almost feel the claustrophobic atmosphere of the humid planet. About 2,475 words.

“It took you a month to save me from my last vacation with Maybourne.” Sam’s heard this before. “Three months the time before that. I figure ten days here, two weeks tops.”

Warnings: adult themes, violence, assault; includes references to Daniel/Sha're

Link to story: One Dimension Removed

Why this should be read: This fabulous AU retells the story of S1 with one major twist: Amaunet came through the Gate looking for a new host for Apophis, and took Daniel. Sha're joins SG-1 in a quest to get her husband back.

This is SO GOOD. Fantastic friendship for Sha're with Sam and Janet. The story twists and turns to reflect her cultural upbringing, her connections with her teammates, and the differences she brings to SG-1. You will love every bit of this, and one certain chapter will break your heart. Settle back for a long and wonderful read!

(Note: Tafkar rated this as PG; the PG-13 rating is my own. And there is one R-rated chapter that I did not read, because Tafkar generously added a PG-rated version for those who prefer it.)

Why this should be read:

In Desperate Measures, what if the team hadn't found where Sam was being kept?  That's the premise of this well-written AU.  Instead, Sam escapes on her own ... but with a traumatic brain injury that leaves her disabled and with only fleeting memories of who she is and where she comes from, and what she does for a living.  This is a Sam stripped of everything she takes for granted: her status in the Air Force, her team, her body, even her mind.  This is a Sam struggling with the frustration of trying to relearn the basics of every-day life.  This is a Sam trying to reconcile memories of impossibilities--wormholes, aliens, starships--in a world that doesn't know about the Stargate Program.  Yet through it all, she remains the Sam we know and love.

Why this should be read:

Because Sha're is awesome!  You want more?  There are several fics about Sha're and writing, but this is my favorite.  This is an AU in which Sha're was with the SGC when Daniel died, and chose to stay there.  But it's about history, and finding your place within yourself, and about being the center of your own story.  I love it, and it's very well written.

In a world where Daniel was taken by Apophis and Sha're joined the SGC to look for him, beatrice otter follows Sha're as she fights for a place on SG-1 and responds to Teal'c's guilt over what happened to Daniel. Beatrice does a wonderful job of giving life to a character we only see glimpses of in canon.

To Catch a Falling Star by Wonderland

Title: To Catch a Falling Star
Author's LJ/DWJ: sg_wonderland
Categories: theme: kidfic, au, tag: Fallen, character: daniel, crossover: NCIS
Warnings: None
Author's Webpage/Fic list: Fic List
Link to story: Wonderland
Why this should be read:

And here's the other fic that stuck with me after my kidfic-spree a few months ago. This is an alternate take on the episode Fallen: about a year after Dr. Daniel Jackson takes his leave of Earth, the NCIS crew come across a young boy lying naked in the middle of a crime scene. Unsure of his identity and connection to the murder, they take him into custody. But how can a little boy have the exact same fingerprints as an MIA civilian consultant to the Air Force?

I love Wonderland's portrayal of downsized!Daniel here. He's obviously affected by the whole amnesia and waking up next to a dead body thing, but he's not overly emotional and in general he acts a lot like how I imagine Daniel as a kid would act. Great reactions by the NCIS crew, too (most of the fic is from their POV), though I confess I'm not terribly familiar with the series.

Reversal of Fortune by Gemsong

My first rec ever. I'm pretty sure I did it right? :D

Title: Reversal of Fortune
Author's LJ/DWJ: n/a
Categories: kidfic, AU, era: season 7, character: daniel jackson, character: jack o'neill,
Warnings: child abuse (by the bad guys), mentions of Daniel/Sha're
Author's Webpage/Fic list: Gemsong's Stargate Fanfiction
Link to story: Website, fanfiction.net
Why this should be read:

Here's a kid!Jack fic with an Ancient twist. SG-1 is on a mission off-world when Jack gets on the wrong side of some Ancient technology and ends up about 6 years old, missing a lot of memories, and unable to speak anything but Ancient. We follow our heroes as they try to adjust to this changed Jack and deal with interest from both their own government and less corporeal people.

It's fluffy and angsty by turns. There's a strong focus on Jack and Daniel throughout the fic, with a definite father/son dynamic that evolves throughout. The thing that kept me reading, though, was the slow reveal of exactly what Jack knows and can do now that his head's been messed with (again) by the Ancients. All this adds up to a kidfic that should keep you interested until the very end.
