Welcome to the second installment of my tenth anniversary reccing posts! Follow the tag if you've missed the previous entries.

Once again, I had to struggle to keep this down to a manageable number. I had already decided to refrain from including the same author twice - or trying, anyway - but that didn't help as much as I thought it would, although it did mean not choosing several favorites!

I find it interesting to see my own learning curve, so to speak. When I first started reccing, the "why this must be read" section was paragraphs long, often summarizing the story. Over time, I shortened both the excerpts I included as well as my explanation of why I thought the fic was worth reading. A reccer should tempt and tantalize, not give a full review!

Since I first started writing SG-1 fic myself in early 2007, I have also decided to shamelessly rec one or two stories per calendar year of my own writing. :)

Remember, I welcome more gen recs below, whether it's another author's story or your own.

A Million Years Into the Sky, by Niamaea )

Scotoma, by Rydra Wong )

And here are two of my own stories from this time period, one angsty and one fluffy:

In Search of Possibilities, parts one, two, and three. ~22,000 words. PG. Sam and Daniel (and team), post Double Jeopardy. "Are we still so far from real to you?" When a mission turns disastrous, Sam and Daniel get the chance to find out. Lots of drama and angst, with hope at the end.

SG-1, Ninja Style. ~2,300 words. PG. Team. Teal’c. Ninjas! Aftermath to The Serpent's Lair.

I was amazingly prolific back then, both in terms of writing and reccing. Eh, I was also a little younger. ;)
