Why This Must Be Read: Oldskool classic fic! This is intense Jack and Daniel friendship, with a typically Otterish twist that you will not see coming... even if, upon rereading, you realize that all the clues were right there.

Why This Must Be Read: these are very clever, and hilarious, like all of rhymer's humorous fic. The members of Team AR1 are placed in totally different literary canon settings, and proceed to trash them, in their own inimitable ways. The last one's a turnabout, where we can be glad Terry Pratchett didn't ever write SGA fanfic!

Why This Must Be Read: John and Rodney meet on a train! Rodney ends up taking a seat across from John, and John - who had been traveling alone for some time - wishes for a little human contact and strikes up a conversation. Rodney is on his way back to Switzerland, to his job at CERN. They're just two ships passing in the night, but there's a connection there. John's flight isn't until the next day, so he asks Rodney to spend the rest of the evening with him, walking the streets of Vienna. Respoftw is great at the endearing banter that define John and Rodney's relationship. This fic is funny and absolutely charming.

Why This Must Be Read: I love alternate universes and Stargate gives us some great ones built right into canon. Rearranging Fate is a gorgeous extension of Kawalsky’s perspective in Point of View—when he and Dr. Carter come to the main SG-1 universe through the quantum mirror—and then of the alternate universe they came from. I love archeologist Daniel being snatched out of Egypt by the US military and the differences in relationships and missions that are sometimes huge and sometimes subtle. A long and satisfying read.

Why This Must Be Read: Rodney works as a tutor for Dave Sheppard's children on his estate in the wild frontier. Rodney runs into an incredibly hot "outlaw" in the stables, then out at the lake, and the tension between the two of them is electric. Trying to keep his relationship with John hidden is made all the more difficult by patrols against the repeated attacks by the dangerous outlaws Wraith. Rodney has no idea who John is, and the potential revelation instills in the reader a tension. The plot moves along briskly and the characters are recognizably themselves despite the historical setting. This fic is just so fun and well done - you'll be rooting for John and Rodney's happy ending.

Many thanks to [personal profile] goddess47, [personal profile] mific, [personal profile] respoftw, and [personal profile] smilebackwards for all their July recs! We had 10 recs this past month; here's hoping for more as we start our transition.

Our reccers for August, on both comms, are:

[personal profile] mific: Five Things

[personal profile] popkin16: John/Rodney

[livejournal.com profile] respoftw: Caldwell/Rodney

[personal profile] smilebackwards: AU

I'll be around, too, making my usual random recs, as will the admins as recurrent reccers.

Reccers, you have access and can start posting at any time. Remember that you have committed yourself to reccing at least two fics over the course of August, although of course we will be happy with more. Feel free to use the copy-and-paste template from the reccer's FAQ for your convenience.

Why This Must Be Read: What I like about these threesomes including Radek is that he's usually written as fairly strong and snarky, and this is an excellent example. John's dismayed when Rodney takes up with Radek, although he tries not to let it bother him . . . but it really really does. Then Radek and Rodney get earrings, and get exponentially cooler. It's hot as hell and has a little dom/sub interplay as well, with Radek as the dom. Very well written and with a lovely slow burn as John tries to handle their relationship, manages to come to terms with it, becomes a kind of friend of the relationship, and then eventually much more than that. It's beautifully handled, and an excellent read.

Several weeks ago, in response to the latest upheaval at LJ, we imported this community as a backup archive. After seeing the responses on our long-running poll and extensive discussion among the mods, we have made the decision to move [community profile] stargateficrec fully to Dreamwidth.

The comm on LiveJournal will not disappear. All entries will remain; all memories will remain. It will not even go completely static, because we will be posting a round-up of links to the entries on the DW comm on a monthly basis. The main activity, however, will move here.

For the months of August and September, as part of the transition process, we will allow posting at both communities, both on LJ and DW. No reccer, of course, will be expected to post simultaneously; the mods will post an end-of-month entry on both comms with links to the recs that were made on the other platform.

The sign-up post for August will go up shortly. We have also slightly tweaked the reccing rules, and we think it will make things easier.

[community profile] stargateficrec has a long, satisfying history, and we have no intention of seeing it dwindle away. We hope you will all continue to enjoy the recs from the Stargate fandom, whether you are reading, reccing, or being recced, both here and on LJ.

Why This Must Be Read: Kid Fic tends to be fluffy. I love that about it but...put kid fic and angst together and you can create gold! This series wraps kid fic and angst together so wonderfully. The first installment in the series is wonderfully sweet and angsty, the second installment will break your goddamn heart in two and the third puts it back together in the sweetest way. I love these fics so much, I just reread them with the posting of the third and they were just as amazing the second time around.

Why This Must Be Read: John and the Athosians are space pirates. I don’t know that I even need to write more than that to explain why this must be read, but I will. All your favorite characters from both Atlantis and SG-1 are here plus bonus Zoe from Firefly who fits in seamlessly. There’s action. There’s drama. There’s Genii. John Sheppard is an emotionally repressed badass. Teyla and the Athosians practice vengeance with responsibility. And, due to a completely believable canon divergence, they are space pirates.

Why This Must Be Read: This is sweet and hot and hilarious.

The writing's excellent, and I like the naturalness of the progression to them all being in a relationship. Radek's dry humor is excellent, and the way he and Rodney tag-team John is a hoot. Highly entertaining.

Why This Must Be Read: I have a thing for kid fics, I make no bones about it. I generally prefer Rodney as the parent but this is one of two exceptions that prove that rule.

John is a widower, looking after his (very well written and likeable) daughter Kayla. During a trip to the science museum, they meet Dr Rodney McKay and...he basically never leaves their life after that. It's a very sweet set of fics, completely AU, set on Earth, no stargates whatsoever. Both John and Rodney are kept amazingly in character throughout which is always a challenge in AUs. Kayla is a great kid character and avoids the trap of being too perfect. One of my favourite things about this fic is that it shows both John and Rodney as fallible parents and feels very real.

Why This Must Be Read: I've been reccing a few de-aged John stories, and this is the big story about Rodney being accidentally de-aged back to five, and about John caring for him, fiercely protective. It's a big story in every way - satisfyingly long, and dealing with big issues and feelings. There's some angst in Rodney's background, and in how the authorities react, and the underlying sadness for John/Rodney fans that their relationship has to change into that of a parent and child, driven by their bond. It's a great read - highly recommended. There's also a podfic by librarychick_94.

Author's Summary: Jack O'Neill needs a vacation... away from Earth...so what better place than a whole new galaxy.


Why This Must Be Read:

Jack and Rodney together on Atlantis! It's a less often seen combination and Tarlan hits this one out of the park.

This is a series of fic, but the majority of the story is in the initial fic, One Way Ticket. There are five ficlets that go with the base fic, mostly after the initial fic. But they make a good follow up to the basic story.

It's mostly from Jack's POV, and he spends a good part of the fic angsting over his attraction to Rodney. But Rodney gets his own in, pining over Jack.

It's on a mission gone awry where Jack gets hurt that our boys get together, but it's not easy.

But after some steamy sex, Jack needs to go back to Earth. He's on vacation after all! But, being his brilliant self, Rodney comes up with a solution that makes everyone happy!
