Why this should be read: This fascinating character study of Jack and how his leadership (or lack thereof) impacts his team was posted back when [livejournal.com profile] redial_the_gate did The Other Side, but it's stuck with me ever since. I really like how Trindajae gives us a different perspective on why everyone behaved as they did during this rather fraught episode. Don't forget to browse the comments, too, for further discussion!

Full disclaimer: Why, yes, I was a mod at Redial. :)

Why this should be read: This hilarious comic strip (complete with full transcription) had me crying with laughter as it tells the real story behind the rebellion against Ra!

Not to mention the deep dark sekret about why cats can have eerily reflective eyes...

My favorite panels are the first two of page 6, but this is all great fun. Go read, giggle, and enjoy!
Title: Podfic of In Dulci Jubilo; written by Salieri, read by Aces

Why this should be heard: This long and lush character study is simply gorgeous: Sam and her perspectives on the world, affected by close contact with a fascinating alien race, and filtered through the comfort and unwavering support of her teammates and friends. It's adult in the best sense of the word: intelligent, thoughtful, challenging. Aces does a stunning job of turning it into podfic, and this is half an hour of quality SG-1 at its best.

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.

Why this should be read: Another fun Doctor Who crossover (this from the woman who has never seen a single ep of any incarnation of Doctor Who, ever) as Ten and Martha meet Cam's SG-1 off-world. Stellar characterization with a few deft exchanges of dialogue will leave you grinning and wishing for more!


“It was the NID, wasn’t it?”

“No,” said Martha, wondering what the NID was. “Judoon. Mercenary space rhinos,” she clarified when Daniel looked at her questioningly.

“Oh,” said Daniel. “Space rhinos. Of course.”

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: Clone!Jack might be a bit bemused at the sudden appearance of a certain manic Doctor, but I love the choices he makes in this one. This is a Jack who is at peace with his own decisions and the direction his life is taking. Immensely charming, wryly amusing, but so very, very right.


“Your eyes are old,” the man said.

“So are yours,” Jack retorted.

Thanks for the reccy week, Paian! My own recs will go up... whenever. :) And perhaps I'll finally start using my own tag, heh.
