Why This Must Be Read: Because I want everyone's heart to ache as much as mine did after I read this. Seriously, this is a beautiful fic that I don't want to spoil too much of because it's just wonderfully structured and the story develops so carefully that you really need to go in cold to appreciate it.

Although this is mainly Rodney POV, Toft does an amazing job of writing John in this; his pain and desparation is so clear throughout. Please, please read this.

Warnings: Off screen death of SGA member and it is Reavers so lots of gore, violence, mutilation, rape, and cannibalism
Author's Website: AO3 or Livejournal
Link: The Monster in the Closet and the sequel

Why This Must Be Read:

Kaylee have been captured by Reavers and barely surviving on their ship. Circumstances are extremely grim. Until one day a new, strange prisoner arrives...

What happens to Kaylee and Rodney is horrific, and it's written from the POV of a Kaylee who has been bludgeoned into becoming matter-of-fact and almost affectless about the horror, though bits of her canon personality still peek through. The way she and Rodney end up escaping the Reavers is a nice ironic twist. (Don't feed Wraith to those who know what they are.) A short but haunting story, which, despite the warnings and grimness, ends on a note of real, sweet hope. It has a sequel that, although it deals with PTSD, offers a happy ending.

Why This Must Be Read:

In this short fic, Cofax gives us a wonderful look at Sam Carter at the very beginning, freshly back from Chulak after the events of "Children of the Gods," and realizing what becoming a field officer will truly demand. I love early-series SG-1 fics that look at the formation of the team, but this one stands out because it's just Sam, tired, sore, and recalibrating her own standards for herself. Sam's grim struggles with her shoelaces capture the brilliance and determination that make her who she is, at the same time as they invite us to reconsider the episode in terms of her physical experiences. Instant headcanon!

Snippet of fic:

An Air Force captain is fit, strong, always ready for duty. Five times a week, Sam runs five miles. She lifts weights, stretches, takes the occasional aerobics class. She can defend herself hand-to-hand and with a wide array of weapons.

Why This Must Be Read: Jack is turned into a dog. This story is just so much fun.

Snippet: “O’Neill will not kill you, Daniel Jackson,” Teal’c said. “He is a dog.” There was that slight deviation in his tone, the one that - accompanied by the subtle twitching of the corners of his mouth - meant he was secretly laughing his ass off. Daniel threw his hands up in the air. “Dogs kill people every single day!”

Why This Must Be Read:

Willow's portal spell and the Stargate hack up a serious hairball for Willow, Spike, Xander, and SG-1. They land in a place where Sokar's forces are crawling everywhere. Willow and Sam have to figure out how to get home. Jack has to figure out what the hell is wrong with these people. And Spike figures out that Sokar's Jaffa = lunch. And then the Wraith come. Getting home isn't so easy.

This is one of Litgal's earlier works and honestly, it needs a bit of proof-reading. But it is a pretty good fic. Perfect for a weekend read .

This takes place season 3 of Stargate, season 5 of Buffy (with a slightly AU season 4) and before Atlantis starts at all.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a more unusual one, being allegorical rather than a straight fairy-tale - also it's a fusion with Neal Stephenson's 'The Diamond Age', although it was part of an SGA Flashfic "fairy-tale' challenge. I love the idea and how the SGA characters help the protagonist, also love the outsider POV. It's a lovely story and a great read.

Why This Must Be Read: As my last rec of the month, I chose this classic by lembas7. It's a weird choice for the "team" category, but, in the end, it's all about how a team grows and changes, how even the closest team can be ripped apart by personalities or stress, and how the individuals make hard choices and work to become friends again. Thanks for letting me rec this month.

It's a great read, and thought provoking.

Why This Must Be Read: This is written in an AU verse [personal profile] ivorygates called the "Dani-verse" in which Danielle Jackson's always been a woman. It's five interesting and different takes on how things might have gone with no Stargate Program - to some degree 5 AUs within the overarching Daniverse AU. Yes, a couple of them are somewhat grim, but they're all really beautifully written, as Dani meets in turn, Sam, Jack, Cam, Teal'c and Janet. I enjoyed them a lot, Dani's nicely sarcastic and snarky, and as [personal profile] ivorygates says, Dani and Janet together are love.

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.
