Link: Imposter Syndrome

Why This Must Be Read: Of course Sam would work her way through the confusion of Ripple Effect through structual analysis...

This is a delightful character study of Sam and her stream-of-consciousness in the wake of meeting so many other Sam Carters - and other teammates - and the choices that altered their realities. It's perfectly Sam and a very enjoyable read.

She printed out a few of the more amusing graphs for herself and her teammates - Teal’c was going to love the pie chart of what pie was being served at the commissary tomorrow in seventy different universes - and then shut her computer down for the night.

Link: Z is for Zucker, Zeitgeist, and Ground Zero

Why This Must Be Read: I love good outsider perspective, when we know more than the character. In this superb portrayal of Sergeant David A. Zucker, working at Area 51, we get an alternate view of the opening scene of... well, Point of View. And it's just fantastic.

Link: When the Rain Comes

Why This Must Be Read: This is a short, sweet, smile-inducing snippet of the team at the very beginning of a mission, from Sam's POV. They might be experiencing rain, but you'll feel nothing but warm sunshine from the sheer team love.

Team bickering, rain, trees, a quiet late-afternoon kind of day… she had a good feeling about this mission already.

Link: J is for je ne sais quoi

Why This Must Be Read: Stargate is at its best when it asks the hard questions. This time, in the wake of the NID's mistreatment of civilians during Nightwalkers, it's Nyan and Jonas who consider the ethical implications, both on Earth and how it would have played out on their own planets.

I love the outsider perspective, the hints of loneliness from the aliens who settled on Earth, and the sadness of the resignation with which Nyan and Jonas accept that life just goes on. Superbly written, like everything from Magistrate.

Link: Growing Pains

Why This Must Be Read: Here's an exploration of what happened to Charlie the Reetou after he walked through the Stargate with Jacob at the end of Show and Tell. The story skims the surface as a bit, as it's wholly from a child's perspective, but I really liked the in-canon timeline explanations and the frustrations that Charlie experiences as a child with the Tok'ra.

Also, his symbiote is awesome. :)

Link: Z is for Zenith

Why This Must Be Read: This is a beautiful snapshot of Daniel in early S7: doing his thing on a very alien planet while still not quite sure of his place in the universe, on the team, with Jack. But his team - his friends - will back him up, just the same.

This reads like the first part of a bigger story not yet written, but is wholly satisfying on its own, too.

Why This Must Be Read: Glorious off-world shenanigans when the team is stranded on a planet by a very malfunctioning Stargate. You'll love how each member finds his or her place in the village and the very in-character humor sprinkled throughout.

Author's Website: Fic and Vid List
Link: Four things Vala would miss about Earth if she left & one that she wouldn't

Why This Must Be Read: This is an excellent character study of Vala as outsider, considering her options and the people she's met on Earth. Her thoughts on Sam are my favorite, but they're all very well done with stellar characterization!

Vala had a series of escape plans worked out even before she stepped through the Gate that first time to Daniel's world, plans that were discarded and replaced on her initial evaluation of the layout of the SGC. As her stay with the Tau'ri went on, the constant calculations for strategic withdrawal running through her head became a soothing background noise. A jarring note introduced itself, though, when she realized how much she would miss what she would be leaving behind.

Why This Must Be Read: General!Jack comes to the rescue of a very frazzled Mitchell in an extremely wacky situation... which is probably just another day in the life of SG-1, really. :)

Great Jack voice, delicious humor, and bonus deadpan Siler for the win!

Why This Must Be Read: This charming little ficlet is both metaphorically and literally sweet: a peaceful moment of friendship between Teal'c and Daniel, at the beginning.

And of course this one pushes all my happy buttons, because JDJunkie wrote it at my request. :)

This world. Earth's. His world, and now Teal'c's.

Why This Must Be Read: When the purely human members of SG-1 have a delayed reaction to nishta, Teal'c and Jacob decide to seize the opportunity...

Teal'c pwnage and Jacob pwnage are apparently exponential. :)

This ficlet was originally my birthday present, and I have no idea why it took me so long to rec. Go read it now!

"They are usually most argumentative," agreed Teal'c, blandly.

"Yeah," said Jacob, thoughtfully. "Usually."

Jacob... said Selmak, warningly – but she said it with such amusement that he wasn't fooled for a moment.

Why This Must Be Read: Daniel's framed picture of Sha're had to come from somewhere...

If not for our knowledge of what's coming, this little ficlet would merely be charming fluffiness. As it is, this is bittersweet, gentle, and makes you glad this opportunity didn't slip past before it was too late.

Daniel snark, disembodied Janet, sick Jack, hint of teamy goodness. Short and very sweet!

“He’s improved enough to be aggravating,” Daniel repeated, cheerfully.

Link: K is for Kinship

Why This Must Be Read: This is a fascinating exploration of Nick's backstory, including a history that spans decades and too many griefs. I love how a person that so many fans perceive as a shallow, cookie-cutter character suddenly becomes very human and very real!

Looking down at Claire’s son, Kaatje’s grandson, he knew he couldn’t face another love, another loss. He made his voice harsh as he told Daniel there was no place in his life for him. That someone – someone else -- would care for him. About him.

And he left.

Why This Must Be Read: This glorious, intense story is long. And incredibly teamy. Full of Jack and Daniel friendship, and scientific puzzles, and Teal'c sheer stubbornness, and Sam doing her best (and beyond) for her team, and Daniel taking his usual flying leaps of logic, and courage, and drama...

I love each and every one of them here. Bill Lee shines, Janet has a great cameo, and the comfort of the final scene is an absolute joy. Make sure you've got the time to read this all in one sitting, because you won't be able to stop!

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is almost impossible to categorize. It's a lovely S8 Teal'c perspective on his teammates. It's the satisfaction of seeing Daniel still delighting in the unknown after everything he's experienced. It's the marvel of offworld things that can't quite be explained, and the joy of the unknown, and Sam the skeptical scientist still embracing it. It's friendship, and character study, and a hint of Daniel/Sha're. And it just deserves to be read!

Why This Must Be Read: Great Jack voice. Deep, beautifully understated friendship. A joy to read!

Daniel wavered, turning towards the shower room, then he turned back. "Uh, you need any help, Jack?"

"No," Jack said automatically. "I'm right behind you." He considered a moment. "As soon as I can lift my arms."

There was a long moment of contemplative silence from the other side of the room. Then Daniel put down his towel and walked back to the bench.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a really nice peek into Daniel's head and the meandering process of his thoughts. From an off-world campfire to cookies in the commissary to shopping at 2 a.m., you'll enjoy this take on life according to Daniel.

He thinks, dimly, that he misses the man he was... but he's fairly certain he remembers the man he was would have sold his left kidney for the chance to know half of what he knows now, gunshots or no.

“Of rocks,” Jack said.

“There weren’t any around, so I compensated,” Daniel said.
