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.

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.

Triptych, By Mad Maudlin (PG-13)

Title: Triptych

Categories: AU, Crossover, SG-1/SGA, Moebius, Apocafic, Angst
Warnings: none
Author's Webpage/Fic list: Mad Maudlin at Archive of Our Own
Link to story: Triptych

Why this should be read: I recommend this fic to anyone who has seen Moebius, it is a really well executed story showing three of the possible alternate realities that might have been created by the events in that episode. The dialogue and character voices are all wonderful which makes the whole time travel/AU theme seem even creepier. About 4,770 words.

Matter can neither be created nor destroyed.

A Pleasant Road, by Aces (G)

Warnings: Spoilers for Continuum

Why this should be read:
Because it's another road-trip fic by Aces, because this fic and that one make a beautiful pair, and because the first fic I recced this week had Cam cooped up inside. This one has Cam cooped up in another timeline, the road trip he never took with Teal'c playing out (in skillfully rendered conditional tense) in his head as he makes a solitary drive of his own, and it's achey and haunting and gorgeously written ... and, ultimately, both moving and hopeful. About 2300 words.

Time Was, by Fabrisse (PG-13)

  • Jul. 1st, 2010 at 10:35 AM
Title: Time Was
Author's LJ/DWJ: [livejournal.com profile] fabrisse
Categories: AU, Daniel Jackson, episode related, theme: time travel, team, angst
Warnings: canon character deaths
Author's Webpage/Fic list: Fabrisse's stories at Alpha Gate
Link to story: Time Was

Why this should be read: Fabrisse offers us an intriguing look at Moebius, including the suggestion that it might have taken more than one "rewind" to make things right... and that Daniel still has lingering, disturbing memories of those failures, manifesting themselves as nightmares.

We're offered three different unsuccessful attempts at fixing the future, including the canon one we know and two other attempts that didn't work. There's Daniel's unhappy attempts to make some kind of sense out of the illogic of time travel, as well as a beautifully creepy introduction to the Egyptian boy who eventually becomes Ra's host in the movie. Then there's Daniel's first reaction to the "official" rewind crew – the one from Moebius – and his initial disbelief that these three could possibly do the job right. Finally, and most satisfyingly, we get our beloved SG-1 back in our present, and the reassurance that they have each other for whatever their current future might hold.

Title: 1969 Prime and Prime-Minus One
Author's LJ/DWJ: [personal profile] redbyrd
Categories: theme: time travel, Hammond, drama, episode related, angst, pre-series, team
Warnings: temporary major character deaths
Author's Webpage/Fic list: Redbyrd's Stargate Fiction
Link to story: 1969 Prime and 1969 Prime-Minus One

Why this should be read: 1969 turned into a closed loop, but what about the timeline that took place the first time SG-1 went back -- before Hammond met them and was inspired to write the note to himself? And what about the timeline before that, when Lieutenant Hammond never met four displaced time travellers in the first place?

With her usual attention to detail and stellar characterization, Redbyrd takes us through two alternate versions of George Hammond's life. You will enjoy his bemused perspective of the four strangers that take him hostage, his careful manipulation of events to match his future with his past, and the honor and courage that affect his choices every step of the way.

Title: The Other Side of the Time Loop

Categories: theme: time travel, Cassie, drama, AU, episode related, General Hammond, angst, character study
Warnings: none
Author's Webpage/Fic list: [community profile] yvi_writes
Link to story: The Other Side of the Time Loop

Why this should be read: To quote the original prompt: There must have been a closed time loop when SG-1 ended up stranded in the future, before Cassie and/or Sam somehow got word back to the past to have Cassie waiting at the right moment. What was life like for Cassie in the loop where SG-1 never came back from 1969?

Yvi did a fabulous job of creating an entire alternate reality in which SG-1 never came back. Her world's history is rich, detailed, and realistic: the Jaffa are more wary of the Tau'ri without Teal'c, the Asgard have less to do with them without Jack, and there is little information on the Ancients without Daniel. On the other hand, there are the fascinating twists of this other reality, including Furlings, the program gone public, victory over the Goa'uld, and a certain civilian becoming head of the SGC.

Cassie gets a long, satisfying life, including marriage and a family... and then she knows she's going to live another one, all over again.

Full disclaimer: the prompt that inspired this story was mine. Yvi did a great job with it, didn't she? :)

Call all reccers: time travel fics!

  • Jun. 3rd, 2010 at 8:10 PM
We had seven recs for our crackfic theme! I've linked the recs here for your convenience:

Ketchup, by Jaed (PG)

The Art of the Deal, by Littera Abactor (PG)

To Travel The Galaxy* (*and eat pie), by Cowardly Lion

Is That A Scroll in Your Toga, or Are You Just Happy to See Me?, by Redbyrd (PG)

Investigation, by Penknife (G)

The Metamorphosis, by Fyere (G)

Yet Another SG-1 Adventure, by Minnow (PG)

And now it's time for a new theme: time travel. Sam and Teal'c meeting four-year-old Daniel in 1969? Something set within the alt-timeline of Continuum? Mini!Jack sneaking the timeship out for a joyride? If it's gen and SG-1 and involves time travel, whether it's accidental, intentional, or via outside influence, we want to see it recced here!

Please bear in mind that we prefer to have new recs rather than repeating those we've already had. Since the two themes are similar, take a quick look at the theme: moebius tag if you have a Moebius-related story to check if the fic has has already been recced. If you somehow miss a rec and repost one, though, we won't send Teal'c after you! :)
