Hi everyone. This a request, though if anyone can find this fic, I heartily recommend it! So it's also a rec (kind of). :)
It's an SG-1 team adventure story. I can't remember many details, but they were off-world and encountered a small river that later flooded, and when they tried to cross the flooded river Jack got attacked by some monster crocodile or something. I have been looking everywhere and can't find it. Help!
I used to have these fabulous original stargate wallpapers from a very talented artist. The computer that I had them on died and I lost the images. I have been trying to find them again but no luck. As I can't remember the artists name. It started with a t (and it was something like Thasa..., Thessa...) The images were abolutly gorgous. One was of the gate surrounded by water with a fall color scheme. I would love to be able to find her website if it still exists. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Title: Day Series
Characters: Daniel, Jack, Sam, Teal'c, General Hammond, Janet Fraser, Cassandra Fraser, Nicolas Ballard, Cameron Mitchell, Catherine Langford,
Description: This is me wading into the Daniel-gets-shrunk genre.
Why rec'd? A lovely series of stores, with Daniel changed to a kid and Jack taking care of him.
Title: Burial at Sea
Characters: Sheppard, McKay, Teyla, Team
Description: Cleanup, physical and emotional
Why rec'd? This fic has all the team feels in it and is so nicely done. It is a tag to The Storm/The Eye but from Teyla's view which is different than most of the tags. She captures the team so perfectly during that first year.
Even better, this gem is a new fic in 2015. It's getting harder to find good gen written these days for SGA so this story was a wonderful find.
I'm working on finishing up the Halloween Round-Up
. I have a couple more fics to add. If you know of any Halloween fics that weren't on old round-ups, let me know and I will add them.
Title: The Cost of Justice
Characters: John Sheppard, Hank Landry, Jack O'Neill
Description: Shakespeare wrote, "Though justice be thy plea, consider this, That, in the course of justice, none of us Should see salvation." On this day, John Sheppard learned that justice without mercy had dire consequences.
Why rec'd? I really enjoyed John and his righteous anger in this one. I love a bit of his past coming back at him as he deals with one of his own men's court-martial/suicide. I really like seeing John with some of the SG-1 characters.
It's been since 2010 that we had a stargategenrec
Halloween Story Roundup. Certainly some gen Stargate Halloween stories have been written since then. If you know of any, let me know in the comments and I'll post a 2014 update. Remember, anything spooky, creepy, monster, etc. qualifies even if it isn't overtly Halloween!
Titles may have been written earlier but missed in other roundups.
As usual with the holiday roundups, our usual rule against self-reccing is suspended, so feel free to suggest your own stories!
Don't forget this site is for anything that is gen and Stargate so SGA, SG-1 and SGU stories can all be listed.
Here are the previous roundups:2006 Roundup2007 Roundup2008 Roundup2009 Roundup2010 Roundup
(Thank you, saphirablue
, for the links! Thank you, sholio
, for keeping up the roundups for several years!)
Is there anyone willing to compile all of the various years roundups into a single list?
List additions for 2014 update:( updatesCollapse )
Title: Facing His Demons
Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, Team
Description: Rodney after a mistake is made.
Why recc'd? Because this is a story where the team supports him after he makes a big mistake. I love the simple interactions in this.
Title: All the Myriad of Faces
Characters: Zelenka, McKay, Ronon
Description: It's not that Radek is afraid of the infirmary, but he doesn't usually have much reason to come.
Why recc'd? It's a nice tag to The Shrine from Zelenka's point of view. It fills in some missing scenes I wanted to see in the episode and it adds Zelenka's part of the story.
Characters: McKay, Sheppard
Description: Sheppard is unable to sleep due to events of the day when he gets a call for assistance from McKay
Why rec'd? I love all of NotTasha's stories and I somehow missed this one back when she wrote it. I really like the last chapter that has some great Sheppard and McKay friendship moments.
Title: Of Steel and Blood
Genre: Angst, Episode tag
Characters: John, Rodney
Summary: John helps Rodney deal with events from The Eye/The Storm.
Why Rec'd: I hadn't realised how much I needed some Rodney angst with a side order of concerned John until I read this fic! Welcome back, Tazmy, please write more! :)
PS: Author tag required please!
