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:

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.

Summary: Not surprisingly, given his occupation, Jack O'Neill turned 50 off-world. It was raining. And Sam Carter was throwing up.
Why This Must Be Read: I love this story, although I think it's more of a post-zatarc friendship (except for Jack's thoughts) than a true Jack/Sam story. It also has some fantastic observations about the characters.

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.

No snippet today, sorry, but FF.net isn't as user-friendly as AO3. If you've never read it, please do. If you have, I hope this is a satisfying trip down memory lane.

Why This Must Be Read: These stories are at times painful, always intriguing, often surprising, and really well written. In this series of might-have-beens that (sometimes thankfully) never were, Cofax gives us a mundanely flawed future instead of tragedy, worst case scenarios, and, ultimately, hope and thanksgiving. It's a great read, and thought provoking.

Author's Summary: This is not what happened in 'Fire and Water', but it could have been...


Why This Must Be Read:

What if Jack was captured by the alien Nem, and not Daniel? So that Daniel, Sam and Teal'c would think Jack had died... Jack wouldn't have a chance in heck of identifying 'Omoroca'... What happens next is that Nem finally decides Jack can't help him directly, but that Jack can be let loose to fight the Goa'uld.

But without a GDO or any communication device, Jack has to use his ingenuity -- and rely on some good luck -- to have a chance at getting back home.

Graculus' story could be an episode. It's well written and a good read!

Looking down at Claire’s son, Kaatje’s grandson, he knew he couldn’t face another love, another loss. He made his voice harsh as he told Daniel there was no place in his life for him. That someone – someone else -- would care for him. About him.

And he left.

Author's Summary: Jack's not sure who's who. A short, dark piece that some might consider disturbing.


Why This Must Be Read:

This short fic (3300 words) is not for the faint of heart. It seems like classic mission-gone-wrong but it quickly goes off into a horror realm when Jack confronts Teal'c. You aren't quite sure what Jack is concerned about, but when Jack attacks Teal'c without overt remorse, you suspect something is not right.

It's not until Jack fights Daniel that you know something is horribly wrong.

The ending is suitably chilling.

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is almost impossible to categorize. It's a lovely S8 Teal'c perspective on his teammates. It's the satisfaction of seeing Daniel still delighting in the unknown after everything he's experienced. It's the marvel of offworld things that can't quite be explained, and the joy of the unknown, and Sam the skeptical scientist still embracing it. It's friendship, and character study, and a hint of Daniel/Sha're. And it just deserves to be read!

Daniel wavered, turning towards the shower room, then he turned back. "Uh, you need any help, Jack?"

"No," Jack said automatically. "I'm right behind you." He considered a moment. "As soon as I can lift my arms."

There was a long moment of contemplative silence from the other side of the room. Then Daniel put down his towel and walked back to the bench.

Why This Must Be Read: In terms of grieving over "Meridian," this fic is a must read. After Daniel's untimely Ascension, Jack starts receiving wreaths. He's not sure why until he not only does research, but talks to Jonas Quinn. Once Jack figures it all out, it's only a matter of time until he reaches a satisfying conclusion.

One of my favorite things about this fic is it shows real character growth as Jack comes to terms with reality, including but not limited to Daniel's absence and Jonas's presence. Also, in a fic that is predominantly about grief, it is oh so very hopeful.

Why This Must Be Read: A weird alien culture, a comatose Daniel, FEELINGS, and Jack trying to navigate it all—this is one of my very favorite Jack/Daniel stories. It's nice and long, and fairly plotty as the team has to figure out what happened to Daniel when he suddenly collapsed while trying to communicate with the nice alien tree-people-things. When the tree beings hand over something that looks like a bar of soap and talks like Daniel, that's when the story really kicks off.

This one is a ride, including two distinct alien cultures, teaminess, and a great exploration of the characters—especially the relationship between Jack and Daniel and communication. (Also, this fic fully recognizes that Jack has cooties.)
