1) My Jacob Carter rewatch status = have successfully gotten Jacob turned into a Tok'ra. Which means that next up is Show and Tell after which I will have to talk about some things. I already know this. *g* Though one thought I had watching Tok'ra 1&2 was along the lines of 'a whole lot of Earth's fate totally depends on George Hammond having accurate judgment when it comes to whether any particular batshit crazy idea SG-1 has is the good kind of crazy or the bad kind.'

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.

List lacking in quantity this week, but I promise not in quality!

J is for Just A Bit Off Base by [personal profile] thothmes. Stargate SG-1, Gen, author doesn't give a rating so I'll call it Teen because that is what I default to most of the time. I think there is maybe a swear word. :) An almost-outsider point of view on the comings and goings at the SGC. I laughed so hard at this, you guys.

Line Noise (2048 words) by splash_the_cat. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack and Team, Teen. It'd been almost three hours since Daniel's last attempt at contacting him, so it must be minor. Unless Daniel wasn't okay. And Teal'c too. Teal'c would have called him. Unless Teal'c wasn't okay. So it was okay. Or something had gone catastrophically wrong. You probably all read this already, but just in case you missed it: SPLASH POSTED SG-1 FIC YOU GUYS!!! And it is lovely and on point as usual, of course. :) Go read immediately if you haven't.

Okay, that is all. Maybe at some point I will actually post other kinds of things on my journal again? But hey, posting at all three weeks in a row sort of feels like a victory at the moment. *g*
mrspollifax: (Default)
Have been away from keyboard most of the week, but look! I am posting these two weeks in a row. Yay me. ;) Someday I might get around to reading and reccing things that are more recent than this? Maybe? Hah. I am perpetually behind, fannishly speaking.

Oh, hey - speaking of being perpetually behind, I am finally getting around to watching all those Marvel movies. Like, so far I have watched Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Thor. I'm going to catch up with the real world in a few more months, maybe. *g*

Okay. Ficrecs:

Rumours of my Demise (4012 words) by cupiscent Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, Padmé Amidala/Obi-Wan Kenobi, Mature. Padme Amidala cannot live in a galaxy where he has come to be what he is. Obi-Wan Kenobi spends most of his time talking with ghosts. Warnings: Major Character Death. An AU what-if set after Revenge of the Sith that scratched an itch I had after my kids re-watched all six movies over the course of several rainy, yucky days. Spare and melancholy and really lovely.

for just one taste of this (1843 words) by nextgreatadventure. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack, Mature. After that, though, things got tricky and dangerous because they pushed a little more and went a little (a lot) further off that deep end, and soon it was the two of them alone in the empty barracks and this wasn’t wrong, was it, just sitting side by side in the darkness? A season 4/Divide and Conquer-era 'what if they didn't actually manage to keep it all locked away' story. Slow and hot and while you can certainly feel a tiny undercurrent of all the ways this could end badly sometimes in the future, this story is more about the love and devotion underneath the lust and the mutual bad decisions. Also did I mention hot? :)

Nefarious Playwrights Are To Blame For My Life (2847 words) by a_loquita. Stargate: SG-1, Sam/Jack, Teen. I swear sometimes that there is someone writing my life, specifically, an omnipotent being that's sick and twisted and has got it in for Jack O'Neill. Okay, so I might have accidentally-on-purpose re-read a fair amount of a-loquita's fic recently, but which to rec today? There are many, many excellent choices. But I had not read this one in *ages*, so here you go. I love the Jack O'Neill voice in this story, the trademark humor but with much more serious stuff going on underneath. (Also naked and UST are really quite difficult to pull off in the same fic like this, I'm just saying.) :)

most everyone is mad here )

1. What is happening on the Lizzie Bennet Diaries twitter accounts? WHAT? Is this a Thing or are they just tormenting us? Someone needs to tell me so I do not get my hopes up.

2. Speaking of the LBD, I had been keeping up with Emma Approved - though I bailed in the middle of the last episode because of referred awkwardness. Actually, that's frequently how I feel about Emma in almost any incarnation tbh, so I've been pretty ambivalent about this series so far. Though I did watch parts of the 2009 BBC adaptation recently which I had never seen before and had the following observations: a) Romola Garai in the role of Emma could be Katee Sackhoff's long-lost sister, and b) I generally do not have any interest in Sherlock Holmes adaptations (I know, I am weird), but I might be convinced to try Elementary just because Jonny Lee Miller.

3. Speaking of Emma, though, here is a ficrec:

you know, you set really high standards
for the men in my life
GK
What?
Emma W
I guess this is how Tom Hiddleston’s little sister feels
if he has one.
GK
I guess.



I laughed SO HARD at this, you guys. Fandom love with a big fat bow on top.

4. Which immediately lead me to re-reading this SG-1 fic which I've probably already recced 18 times or something already but whatever:

#sg1wedding (1312 words) by openended

Politics hijacked their wedding into a big floofy interplanetary affair. So everyone takes to Twitter.

@stillalive: An Air Force general, a Jaffa leader, and a Tok’ra high council member walked into the bar.
@blewupasun: @stillalive is this the beginning of a joke or something that actually happened?



5. Also have been slowly re-reading all the Jojo fic. Because SG-1 nostalgia. And also because of lines like this:

Why blonde? Why did she have to be blonde? And hot? And smarter than him? Why? He *hated* blonde, hot, smart women. He'd freaking *married* the last one. (from Just Don't Eat the Cake) Hee.

6. Today I was actually taking some time to write some stuff and rather than working on either of the fics I meant to, I have written an insert scene for a fic I posted over four years ago that will never see the outside of my notebook and started a sequel for something else that I shouldn't have. Oops. Oh well. All words are good, right?

Here concludes this digest of my recent fannish life. *g*
mrspollifax: (Default)
So I just pulled out the fic I didn't manage to finish for [profile] a_loquita & [profile] binkii822's birthday last year, and look:

When he calls her on Wednesday afternoon, a five-minute conversation wedged into the gap between one hostile meeting and another, he expects her to just say yes.

See? More telephones. Hahahahahahah. I'm kind of afraid to look at any of my other WIPs now.

In other news, [profile] a_loquita recently pointed out to me that this summer it will have been five years since Continuum came out. Which, okay, how has it been five years? But getting past that double-take moment - there should be fannish things to commemorate this, right? Promptathon, SG-1 meme, general nostalgic squee-age*? Yes? Someone tell me if this is happening somewhere.

Meanwhile, speaking of nostalgic squee-age, there is a general Gateverse promptathon thing (fic, art, etc.) going on through the end of May - on DW or on LJ.

* No, autocorrect, I do not mean squeegee. I do not admit to laughing at that substitution, either.
