Why this should be read: Shau'nac deserves so much more than just to be a convenient catalyst for the creation of Tanith as Teal'c's new personal villain. And in this character sketch, stretching literally over nearly a century, Ivorygates highlights the enormity of the tragedy of Tanith's betrayal and Shau'nac's murder.


Shau'nac of the Red Hills had seen ninety-nine years come and go.

She would not see a hundred.

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.

Why this should be read: When the SGC rescues a goa'uld host, people like Helen Meyer oversee their recovery. Helen's one of the psychologists dedicated to studying goa'uld symbiosis and treating PTSD. After years of research, she finally gets to ask: what happens to the rescued hosts from other planets? She's not going to like the answer.

Very interesting and thoughtful look at both what the life of an SGC psychologist is like, and what the general fate of former hosts is.

Why this should be read: Some of these people we know from the show, and others we don't see, but all of these are interesting pictures of what might be happening just around the corner from the cameras. It's one of my favorite five things fics.

Link to story: Time Heals All

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.

I have been a horrible mod of late. My apologies to all of you.

Three (!) months ago, we had a new theme: season six. We had two recs with that theme posted.

Field Trip, by Eponymous Rose (G)

Naturally Selective by Elizabeth (PG)

There was one other non-themed rec posted since then:

SG-1's Siren Song by thothmes (PG)

Thanks to Seaboe and Campy for their contributions!

Our new theme is the edges of canon. What happened pre-series? Post-series? In one of the canonical alt-universes/timelines? How about characters we meet and never see again, like Nyan or Harlan or Merrin -- what happened to them? If you know of a gen fic that touches on these questions, we want to see it recced here!

Feel free to refresh your memory of the comm rules at the FAQ before posting. Official format is included in the FAQ entry and on the comm's profile page. If you choose to tag your own entry (you don't have to do so), please include the the edges of canon tag as well as any others that you find appropriate. And if you need a tag that isn't yet available, please comment and let me know.
