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.

Meeting of Minds, by SEF (PG)

Warnings: none

Why this should be read: This wonderful teamy fic is set shortly after Daniel's return at the beginning of S7. SEF deftly weaves canon together, creating an excellent backstory for an intriguing alien race that we only glimpsed on the show. The story challenges our characters with thorny moral dilemmas, a staple of the show at its best; it offers the hint of skeletons in the Asgard closet, which is one of my favorite fic twists for some odd reason; and it's got solid gold teamy goodness, with all four characters working together and displaying true friendship and support under the most trying circumstances.

Off-world exploration, the possibility of major cultural impact on Earth, breathtaking firefights, dramatic and emotional affirmation of SG-1's close bond, fantastic Sam voice – what more could you ask for?

S7 teamy goodness, Teal'c backstory, competence, fighting and friendship and just the right dash of humor -- it all adds up to a great lost episode that you're sure to enjoy!

Fostering Relations, By Aelfgyfu (Teen)

Warnings: mild language, violence

Link to story: Fostering Relations

Why this should be read: Kidfic with a little twist. While I really enjoy many of the standard tropes, it's also fun to read a fic that deconstructs some of them. Plus, this is a satisfying off world story with an emphasis on character relationships, including Janet and Bill Lee. The fic is set in season 7, between "Death Knell" and "Heroes" and deals with some of the repercussions from "Evolution". About 52,000 words.

A desert planet, a Fountain of Youth device, and SG-1; what could possibly go wrong?

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.

Gravity, By splash_the_cat (PG)

Title: Gravity

Categories: AU, Jacob, Cassie, Team, Drama, Angst, Season 7
Warnings: snakes
Author's Webpage/Fic list: Moments of Adoration
Link to story: Gravity or text version: Gravity

Why this should be read: This fic was written as the second "episode" for Chrysalis, a Stargate virtual mini-season (7.5) which begins with the assumption that Janet Fraiser was badly wounded in Heroes II, but is alive. That's all you need to know to read this story, which worked well for me as a stand alone AU. It's a tense exploration of what SG-1, Jacob, Hammond and Cassie might be willing to do to save Janet's life. And because I knew that this story was an AU, I really couldn't guess how it would be resolved.

Episode 2 for Chrysalis (go to Chrysalis page for Episode 1); To save one life, how much would you sacrifice?

Bad Pennies, by Salieri (G)

  • Jan. 26th, 2010 at 8:08 PM
Title: Bad Pennies
Author's LJ/DWJ: [livejournal.com profile] troyswann
Categories: theme: crossovers, team, humor
Warnings: crossover with MacGuyver
Author's Webpage/Fic list: Outside the Box
Link to story: Bad Pennies

Why this should be read: This entertaining story is just plain fun, as MacGuyver and SG-1 cross paths in Central America, both trying to rescue the same jaguar from various bad guys. There's delightful MacGuyver POV as we see the team through his baffled eyes, a bomb made out of tissues and Daniel's antihistamines, the resemblance that everyone sees except Jack and MacGuyver... and the almost plaintive refrain of, "Seriously, what's a Tok'ra?"

A great romp with the team, with Ba'al thrown in for good measure. I defy you to read this without a big grin on your face.

It took me a few more seconds to light the fuse on the packet and to let the string burn to the right length. In that time, Daniel said to the cat, "Just hang on. We're going to get you out of here." The cat stared at him with an expression that communicated absolutely no confidence at all. Why I thought that, I couldn't tell you.

Son of Endless Sky, by Rydra Wong (PG-13)

  • Dec. 28th, 2009 at 11:33 PM
Don't forget, we're currently running the favorite fic theme. It doesn't have to be your single favorite fic (I have over 30 of those myself), but rather a story that you love to read over and over and again. I hope some of you will take the time to rec your favorite fic and share the squee with others.

Title: Son of Endless Sky
Author's LJ/DWJ: [personal profile] rydra_wong
Categories: theme: favorite fic, Jack and Daniel friendship, Daniel, character study, original character
Warnings: none
Author's Webpage/Fic list: fic tag
Link to story: Son of Endless Sky

Why this should be read: Rydra Wong gives us one of the most beautifully rendered original characters I’ve ever read.

Shortly after Daniel’s decension, the team meets a group of native traders who recognize that he has died and come back to life. They maintain that he is dangerous, belonging to neither earth nor sky; and they insist that Daniel allows them to provide him with a literal grounding, to keep his spirit safely within his unmarked body that was once nothing more than light.

You will be charmed by the one-paragraph complete story of little Bao, and Daniel’s quiet, gracious acceptance of what the natives ask. You will be moved by the profundity of the artist’s insights into SG-1, and the inherent beauty and pain in what he senses about Daniel’s past and how he writes that essence on Daniel’s body. Most of all, you will come away from this enchanting, haunting story with a sense of conviction that the traders are right – and that ephemeral Daniel does, indeed, require tangibility to keep himself anchored in our world.

(Regarding pairings: The fic is essentially gen; although the unnamed narrator observes the close relationship between Jack and Daniel and wonders about its nature, subtext is left up to the reader. The fic is a remix of [info]brainofck’s Pervasive Local Obsidian, though, which is Jack/Daniel, so the fic is officially labeled as “Jack/Daniel implied/UST.”)
