2) Writing this week (*) and it being the busy, busy month of May = nostalgia week for ficrecs, because I am not reading much and trying to rattle through bookmarks on multiple devices and sites for 'things I have meant to rec but haven't gotten around to yet' is apparently too much effort. I freely admit to cribbing this list from one I already posted a loooooong time ago as a comment somewhere (except updated for AO3 links where I can find them, because this list is so old AO3 didn't exist yet). So. Sam/Jack cabin fic recs:
Concentric Unto Thee (8752 words) by gabolange. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack, M. Her attempts at normality have never worked before, and Jack won't stand for any attempts to apply the logic of command to their relationship. Really wonderful, grown-up Sam and Jack working out how to share a life together.
Scenes from a Weekend by karma_aster. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack, Teen. Lovely Threads-related cabin fluff with just a touch of bittersweetness.
Biting the Bullet by ijemanja. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack, PG-13. Five times Jack O'Neill asked Samantha Carter out, and one time he didn't have to. I'm cheating a little on this one. It's actually a five things, with five Sam/Jack scenes from different AUs, and only the last one is at Jack's cabin. But it's funny and sweet and the characterization is just terrific.
Gravity Sings (7081 words) by stargazercmc. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack, M. General Jack O'Neill headed west five months after the world ended. Apocafic. Jack and Sam try to make some kind of normal life after the world ends. I love Jack in this fic especially.
Fantasy (562 words) by a_loquita (which also has a timestamp sequel, Only Sense Left). Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack, G (sequel is rated T). It’s time for Sam to make a choice. Short but really beautiful; the sort of fic that makes the setting almost another character in the story.
Land of Sky Blue Waters by sam938. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack, PG-13. Thor doesn’t beam Jack up until a week later. Sam accepts the offer to go fishing, but things don’t necessarily work out the way they’re planned. A what-if AU where Sam goes on that fishing trip with Jack (but it's mostly UST, not what you're thinking at all! hee). I like this because they both get to be smart, and I think it's a good look at what they have in common and what they don't and why they still work.
There are like 80,000 other fics that could be added to a cabin fic rec list but I am resisting the urge because things to doooooooo. If anyone felt like suggesting a theme for next week's list I wouldn't complain because I do not think next week will be any less busy.
(*) Dear people out there who write X thousand words per day, I remain simultaneously envious and in awe of you. Two days ago I wrote 900 (!!!) words. Yesterday I netted about 100 new words after stab-stab-deleting about a third of that 900. This is an example of REALLY PRODUCTIVE for me, the kind of really productive that means things like my household chores aren't getting done. Writing more than that is very very rare for me and generally results in HELLO ARE YOU STILL ALIVE?? emails/texts. lol.
