September reccers: volunteer post

This entry will be open to volunteers through August 31st. The official list of monthly reccers will be posted on Friday.

September is the final month for active recs here on LJ. We will always post links to activity on the Dreamwidth comm on a monthly basis, but if you're not making the move to DW and you ever wanted to rec here on LJ, now is the time!

Comment with the username you'll be using to rec and the category you want, choosing a category from the list below or selecting a more rare category that has been used in the past. If you want to rec a category that is not on the list below or in the community memories, feel free to ask. Remember that you may volunteer for a category that isn't listed.

By signing up, you are committing yourself to reccing at least two (preferably four) stories in that category during the month of September. August reccers may only sign up for next month after posting their minimum two recs for this month.

Please note that we are no longer asking reccers to check the memories before choosing which stories to rec. If you have a good fic to rec, go for it! The FAQ and rec template, with detailed instructions, can be found here.

You must be a member of stargateficrec in order to post, so if you're a new reccer, be sure to join the community.

If you wish to rec at the comm on DW this month, go here.

Change Can Be Good by blackchaps (E)

Show: SGA
Rec Category: Caldwell/McKay
Characters: Rodney McKay, Steven Caldwell, Team.
Pairings: McKay/Caldwell
Categories: Slash
Warnings: I feel like I should warn for a John who is a bit of a dick...not in the usual good way.
Link: Change Can Be Good

Why This Must Be Read: Blackchaps has the dubious honour of igniting my passion for this ship in Sacrifices Made which has some serious UST between McKay and Caldwell while remaining a McShep fic. It probably helps that I've had a crush on Mitch Pileggi since I was 12. So, when I saw that they had an actual, honest to goodness slash fic for the pairing I was immediately enthralled. And it's so good. I mean, it's a post-TrinityTM fic, how could it not be?

I always liked the way Caldwell stood up for McKay during the Arcturus thing and I've always hated the way everyone else treated him after it so fics, where one character stands up to the rest or is actually there for Rodney, are like catnip to me. This is an especially good one with Rodney getting some distance from Atlantis and building his confidence back up while getting naked and sweaty on the Daedalus with Caldwell.

And, John pulls his head out of his ass eventually so it's happy endings all around!

August reccers

Many thanks to goddess47, [personal profile] mific, 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

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.

Second Prime (by Imperfectcircle) (M)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: Threesomes (specifically Rodney/John/Radek)
Characters: Radek Zelenka/Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Categories: slash
Warnings: Nil
Author on LJ: imperfectcircle
Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: Second Prime on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: This is short, delightfully snarky, and not as angsty as my last rec - hardly any angst at all, in fact. It's from Radek's POV and the writing's really great.

Black Sapphire by dingochow (E)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: Threesomes (specifically, Rodney/John/Radek)
Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, Radek Zelenka
Categories: slash
Warnings: none
Author on LJ: dingochow
Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: Black Sapphire on AO3

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.

This entry will be open to volunteers through August 1st. The official list of monthly reccers will be posted on Wednesday.

Comment with the username you'll be using to rec and the category you want, choosing a category from the list below or selecting a more rare category that has been used in the past.

ADMIN: Comm moving to Dreamwidth

After seeing the responses on our long-running poll and extensive discussion among the mods, we have made the decision to move stargateficrec to Dreamwidth.

The comm here 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 to [community profile] stargateficrec, where all entries from this community have already been imported. If you have a journal at Dreamwidth, we suggest adding the comm to your reading circle.

For the months of August and September, as part of the transition process, we will allow posting at both communities - stargateficrec here and [community profile] stargateficrec. 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.

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 Dreamwidth.

If you have any questions or observations for us, please comment below.

From The Ashes (series) by Brumeier

Show: SGA

Rec Category: Kid Fic (of the 'they are parents' variety)
Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard (other supporting characters)
Pairings: McShep
Categories: Slash
Warnings: Grief/Mourning throughout and Miscarriage in the second part
Author on LJ: brumeier
Link: On AO3


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.

If There Be Thorns (by Astolat) (E)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: Threesomes (specifically, Rodney/John/Radek)
Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, Radek Zelenka
Categories: slash
Warnings: The initial story by Julad is a bit angsty for McSheppers
Author on LJ: astolat
Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: If There Be Thorns on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: My suggestion is to start with the story that inspired this one, which is Rodney/Radek, with pining!John (Beneath the Roses by Julad). Then Astolat took that idea and galloped off in a threesome direction. Great writing, excellent characterisation, some nice snark, and hot as hell - they're both great reading.

Raiders of the Seven Systems by LtLJ (G)

Show: SGA/SG-1

Rec Category: Gen
Characters: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Teyla Emmagan, Ronan Dex, Samantha Carter, Jack O’Neill, Teal’c, Daniel Jackson, Zoe Washburne, Acastus Kolya
Categories: Gen, Action/Adventure, Hurt/Comfort, Drama, Alternate Universe
Warnings: Contains a brief description of a suicide attempt
Author’s Website: LtLJ on AO3
Link: Raiders of the Seven Systems

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.

Results May Vary (by Sabinelagrande) (E)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: Threesomes (Specifically, this month, Rodney/John/Radek stories)
Characters/Pairings: John Sheppard/Radek Zelenka, Rodney McKay/John Sheppard, Rodney McKay/Radek Zelenka, Rodney McKay/John Sheppard/Radek Zelenka
Categories: slash
Warnings: Nil
Author on LJ: sabinelagrande
Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: Results May Vary on AO3

Why This Must Be Read: This is sweet and hot and hilarious. Various encounters with mind-altering fruit or other Pegasus substances lead to a series of hook-ups, until the eventual, inevitable threesome. 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.

On Life and Living (series) by wesleysgirl (Explicit)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: Kid Fic (of the 'they are parents' variety)
Characters: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay.
Pairings: McShep, past John/Elizabeth
Categories: Slash, past het
Warnings: Elizabeth is dead in this story, not sure that counts as needing a warning but...just to be safe!
Link: On Life and Living

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.

Lesson Learned, by JDJunkie (G)

Show: SG-1

Rec Category: Teal'c and Daniel friendship
Characters: Teal'c, Daniel Jackson
Categories: fluff, gen
Warnings: none
Author on LJ: jdjunkie
Author's Website: JDJunkie at AO3
Link: Lesson Learned

Why This Must Be Read: This charming little ficlet is both metaphorically and literally sweet: a peaceful moment of friendship between Teal'c and Daniel, at the beginning.

And of course this one pushes all my happy buttons, because JDJunkie wrote it at my request. :)


This world. Earth's. His world, and now Teal'c's.

Marking Time by Redbyrd (PG)

Show: SG-1

Rec Category: Gen
Characters: Daniel Jackson, Teal’c, Sam Carter, Jack O’Neill, Lou Ferretti, Various SGC Personnel
Categories: Gen, Episode Related, Drama
Warnings: None
Author on LJ: redbyrd_sgfic
Author’s Website: Redbyrd’s Stargate Fanfiction
Link: Marking Time

Why This Must Be Read: Redbyrd's website is a treasure trove of beautifully written gen fic. Marking Time is an amazing extension of what Daniel and the rest of the team and SGC were up to during A Hundred Days while Jack was stuck on Edora. I particularly love the well-rendered SGC military personnel and Daniel fitting himself into other SG teams in true anthropologist fashion.

Characters: Jacob Carter, Teal'c, team
Categories: gen, episode related
Warnings: none
Author on LJ: pepper_field
Author's Website: PepperF at AO3
Link: N is for Nishta

Why This Must Be Read: When the purely human members of SG-1 have a delayed reaction to nishta, Teal'c and Jacob decide to seize the opportunity...

Teal'c pwnage and Jacob pwnage are apparently exponential. :)

This ficlet was originally my birthday present, and I have no idea why it took me so long to rec. Go read it now!


"They are usually most argumentative," agreed Teal'c, blandly.

"Yeah," said Jacob, thoughtfully. "Usually."

Jacob... said Selmak, warningly – but she said it with such amusement that he wasn't fooled for a moment.

One Way Ticket (series) by Tarlan (NC-17)

LJ Subject Line: One Way Ticket (series) by Tarlan (NC-17)

Show: SG-1 / SGA

Rec Category: Jack O'Neill
Characters: Jack O'Neill, Daniel Jackson, John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Elizabeth Weir
Pairings: Jack/Rodney, implied John/Daniel
Categories: slash, action/adventure, crossover, team
Warnings: canon level violence
Author on LJ: tarlanx
Author's Website: Tarlan on AO3
Link: One Way Ticket



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!

The Other Side of Grace (by sardonicsmiley) (PG)

Show: SGA

Rec Category: Kidfic - of the accidentally de-aged type
Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, other Atlantis characters
Categories: Gen
Warnings: Apparent character death initially, but the reality's much stranger.
Author on LJ: sardonicsmiley
Author's Website: smiley.zonezine.net
Link: The Other Side of Grace

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.

Pairings: Elizabeth/John
Categories: Het, Romance, Drama

Why This Must Be Read: This story takes place ten years after Elizabeth Weir's capture on the Replicator homeworld in 'Lifeline' and as someone who didn't like how her story was handled i enjoyed reading every bit of it as Elizabeth made her way back home.
