Why this should be read heard: Abyssis lovingly, eloquently traces the history of space travel on Earth, and how it has intertwined with Sam and Jack's lives. She deftly weaves past events with show canon, showing us the unique bond that they share, with their love of flight and the stars that shine above them. And Grav_ity takes this gorgeous character piece and reads it with all the quiet and powerful intensity that it fully deserves.

One of my all-time favorite Stargate fics, podficced brilliantly. This is just under half an hour of SG-1 at its best.

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.”

Title:The Friday Night Colonel's Club

Why this should be read:

Because Jack is spot-on. Because it's nice to see the other people at the SGC, people who aren't SG-1, but are there and doing their jobs day in and day out. Because watching Jack relax with his peers is fun and interesting. This is not a flashy story, it's a quiet fic that fills in background details in such a way that makes it seem flawlessly blended into the show.

Link to story: With Great Power

Why this should be read: Amilyn gives us an excellent Sam story, as the team finds themselves trapped by Jaffa and are desperate to find any way of escape. The key turns out to be a part of Sam that she dreads using... and that just might take her somewhere, or to become someone, that she doesn't want to be.

Great Sam POV, impeccable teamwork, wonderful Sam and Daniel bonding, and a thoughtful look at Jolinar's legacy. You'll love the breathless scene in the Gateroom, and the final conversation between Jack and Sam, when he proves himself both a marvelous CO and a compassionate human being. With Great Power is a great Sam story and a fantastic team fic, so go read it right now!

Stockholm Syndrome, by Annerb (G)

Title: Stockholm Syndrome

Warnings: none
Author's Fic: Master List
Why This Must Be Read:

It's hilarious, that's why. The summary is, "Jack and Sam get captured by the worst
bad guys ever." They may not be the worst, but they're sure the cutest. Written
for the Jack and Sam Friendathon, this story takes place relatively early in the
series. Sam learns that Jack is really very odd, sometimes, Jack learns that Sam
can be Evil, and Daniel and Ferreti learn never to get on Sam's bad side. I don't
want to spoil anything, but you have to read it

Stockholm Syndrome

Also, my apologies to the mods; a combination of computer trouble and problems with DW combined to make me have to write this entry twice, and the second time I forgot a few things. Here's hoping third time's the charm ...
