Why this should be read watched: Brihana makes so many wonderful vids that it's hard to choose just one! From the hilarious Stargate Cantina to the angsty Say the Words, she covers ship, gen, humor, drama, team... If you enjoy SG-1 vids at all, take the time to browse through her work. You're bound to find something you'll love.

The vid I'm reccing here is a fantastic retelling of the end of S1/beginning of S2 arc, starting from TBFTGOG and ending in Serpent's Lair. Great music, great scene choices, and I love the way the lyrics fit the story line impossibly well. A real treat that I always enjoy rewatching!

Why this should be read: This is nothing short of gleeful: fanboy!Doctor Who meets SG-1 and saves a library!

Oh, c'mon, you can't resist reading that... :)

The guy wearing glasses was the only one not pointing a weapon at them. “Guys?” he said, raising a finger. “I’m pretty sure the bad guys don’t normally wear bowties.”

“No,” said the Doctor, fingering his bowtie, “bad guys are not cool enough to wear bowties.”

“Why, Daniel,” muttered the older white man in the baseball cap, “I think you just found yourself a twin.”

Why this should be read: I love it when authors fill in the gaps between episodes. Here, we have a fantastic exploration of Charlie-the-Reetou's first weeks with the Tok'ra: his blending, his loneliness and uncertainty, some hard truths, and the beginnings of some real friendships. Just wonderful!

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.

Why this should be read: Call this Season 1, Episode 2.5. Random treats us to a fantastic lost episode in which Jack, Daniel, Sam, and Teal'c become team, with four individuals coming together to fuse into that wonderful entity known as SG-1. The story includes a literal gauntlet, fascinating challenges, an actual solution to a major contradiction between show canon and movie canon, and excellent shifting POVs throughout. Teamy goodness like this is an absolute joy!

The Midas Syndrome by Rheanna (PG)

Title: The Midas Syndrome
Author's LJ/DWJ: Unknown
Categories: Lost episode, team, Jack, season 1-2, drama
Warnings: Some very rotten food, plot-related nudity
Author's Webpage/Fic list: Website, AO3
Link to story: website, AO3
Why this should be read:
Set very early season 1, Jack's attempts at team bonding are interrupted when he comes down with an unfourtunate variation of the midas touch. Rheanna gives us a good Jack voice, a convincing portrayal of a newly formed SGC trying to deal with its very first alien contagion, and an SG-1 that's not quite a team yet. Jack's decision near the end is heartbreaking and very true to character, and in the end SG-1 comes together as a team for the first time.

Why this should be read: What happened when Drey'auc and Ry'ac were abandoned by Teal'c in "Children of the Gods"? The character voices and atmosphere in this ficlet are perfect and heartbreaking. and it's a wonderful little view of the ordinary life that will continue on Chulak for most Jaffa. Penknife's Drey'auc is truly awesome and I would love to see more of her. (740 words)

The ones left behind.

Why this should be read:

Two team-mates alive, seven Jaffa dead. And one Captain Samantha Carter with a junked-up weapon, and a glitter in her eye that boded badly for the universe.

This is Sam-the-brilliant-scientist and Sam-the-soldier all at once.  It don't get much better.

Actually, if you like awesome women, just read everything Tielan's ever written.  She loves writing awesome women, and showcasing just how awesome they are.

Bedside Manners, By Minx (PG-13)

Warnings: none
Author's Webpage/Fic list: Fanfic Archive Post on [ profile] _minxy_'s LJ
Link to story: Bedside Manners

Why this should be read: Because it made me remember how much I adore Janet Fraiser.

This fic take place during the early years of the SGC and Janet is busy doing what doctors do - while trying to keep her temper under control. (Thanks to one Colonel O'Neill.)

Minxy writes women who are clearly awesome on a daily basis and I think she gets Janet exactly right. It's also a great view of SG-1 being anxious for a sick teammate from an "outsider" POV.

Written for the Remix/Redux Ficathon, about 1700 words.

SG-3 could probably tell she was angry by the way her heels clicked curtly down the bare concrete floor and reverberated through the halls.

Title: One Dimension Removed

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.)

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.

Why this should be read:

In this fic, dsudis gives us a heartwarming, and slightly sad, account of the aftermath of Fire and Water. We follow Jack, Teal'c and Sam in turn as they deal with the lingering memory of Daniel's death, and then Daniel's POV as he wonders what's gotten into his team. Very well written overall, and excellent early teamfic.

Why this should be read: What happens after Ry'ac wakes up with his brand new primta after S1 Bloodlines? If you like fic about the consequences of events in episodes, this one is a beauty. The very young Ry'ac is believably childish and it was great to see him at that age when he wasn't unconscious or brainwashed. Also, Drey'auc and Bra'tac are awesome. About 2300 words.

Ry'ac learns some new things after receiving his primta--but is he taking them seriously enough?
