Why this should be read: This is a fantastic followup to Fallout: what happened to Kianna Cyr after the Goa'uld was removed, and how she deals with both Jonas, the Kelownans, and the ethical questions in the aftermath. With all the nuance and stellar characterization you expect from Magistrate, this one is a real keeper.

Field Trip, by Eponymous Rose (G)

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.

Why this should be read: Plotty Jonas fic! Jonas comparing his new Langaran anti-Ori team to his old Tau'ri (and Jaffa) anti-Goa'uld team. Jonas being incredibly competent and unsure of his own competence. Plus a very nice appearance by Tomin.

now is the winter by Vixys (PG-15)

Title: now is the winter
Author's LJ/DWJ: [livejournal.com profile] vixys
Categories: Jonas, Lost Episode, Apocafic (sort of), season 9-10, hurt/comfort
Warnings: violence, torture, language

Why this should be read:
Anyone who has ever wondered what happened to Jonas after Langara fell to the Ori, or who thought he should have gotten more than that one line should love this fic. Vixys gives us a beautifully narrated story that follows Jonas's exile (again) from his people, and his long, slow struggle against Ori domination. The author brings back the powers he gaine from Nirrti at the end of season 6, to very cool effect, and brings Langara itself to life far more than the show ever did. Even if you aren't really a fan of Jonas, give this fic a try. It might change your mind.

Title: Look to the Heavens and Number the Stars
Author's LJ/DWJ: [personal profile] minervacat
Categories: awesome women, original character, Daniel, Jonas, team, episode related, Janet, character study, angst
Warnings: spoilers through S9, including canon character deaths
Author's Webpage/Fic list: when the floods roll back
Link to story: Look to the Heavens and Number the Stars, parts one and two, and The Silent Language of the Star (a companion fic)

Why This Must Be Read: Minervacat introduces us to a superbly-realized original character, Claire, who is recruited to the SGC by Jack at Daniel’s behest. Claire slowly takes over the staggeringly difficult task of cataloging the artifacts that accumulate over the years. With time, she befriends the characters we know and love - especially Janet, her main source of gossip, and Daniel, who never returns her books. Yet Minervacat cleverly evades the Mary-Sue trap for Claire; this original character remains quietly on the sidelines, interacting only enough to be a part of the story without interfering in the events as we know them, or knowing more than she should.

Covering some seven years of SG-1 history - including a fascinating side-trip into the AU of Moebius - these two fics are elegantly written, with just the right touches of humor and distress to make Claire amazingly real.

A librarian at the SGC, with all that entails. Both these stories are too wonderful to be missed!
