Summary: Off-world universities, solar power, and a riddle of the ages… SG-1 have a mystery to solve.

Notes: Written for the [community profile] stargate_summer Reverse Big Bang, and inspired by [personal profile] roeskva's stunning original artwork. Thank you, Roeskva, for such a gorgeous piece!

Takes place at the end of S2, after 1969. Lots of references to The Fifth Race and a certain episode of S1. I used Stargate-level science (that is, I mostly found information on Wiki or made it up entirely), and it is a grand old tradition to write Sherlock Holmes Stargate style "homages" pastiches.

Many thanks to Aelfgyfu for her careful beta skills, helpful suggestions, and title assistance.

This story can also be read at AO3.

I just posted my 50th fic to AO3, starting from back in 2007 with my very first SG-1 story and going forwards, one fic a day (more or less) at a time. I'm only halfway through 2009 now. Good grief, I used to be prolific.

It's been an interesting experience so far. I am charmed by the statistics page and it's interesting to see how some fics are better received now than when they were first posted (and vice versa). Getting kudos e-mails are fun, because I can tell when one person is browsing through my stories, and it's certainly a nice way to start my morning. :) I can't make up my mind about kudos themselves; are they a plus, because it's nice feedback that you wouldn't get otherwise? Or a minus, because less people bother with actual comments? Or a combination of both, which is probably the reality.

Also, old friends rereading my old stories and commenting on occasion are an absolute joy.

In any case, it's nice to reach a milestone like 50. :) My next fic up will be on Sunday, and that will be my [community profile] stargate_summer fic and I am SO EXCITED to have written something new and substantive, finally.

Last, last minute-contribution to Kidfic Alphabet Soup, because I want to get it up already!

Baby Shifu has a limited comprehension of what's happening to him. Vague references to Secrets, FIAD, and Maternal Instinct. 262 words. Rated G.

Backup contribution to Kidfic Alphabet Soup! Also, I believe this is the first time I have actually had Jack use a certain expression. It certainly seemed to fit this time.

Five times SG-1 had to accept an unusual perspective of childhood and adulthood. Jack POV, set in Seasons 1 & 2. Includes detailed spoilers for Brief Candle, the Nox, and Thor's Chariot. 2,250 words. Rated PG-13 for certain details involving Brief Candle.

O is for Other Perspectives )

A contribution to Kidfic Alphabet Soup. As usual, Daniel took control and went in unexpected directions. He's good at that. :) This came out as much meta-ish as fic-ish, I think.

Summary: Few people expect the former First Prime to be so good with children, but SG-1 knows that Teal'c has vast and unexpected depths. A Daniel retrospective on a friend. References various episodes throughout the series (mostly those with kids). 1,710 words. Rated PG.

T is for Teal'c )

Kidfic Alphabet Soup is scheduled for the end of the month, but we still don't have anywhere near enough cooks yet. You can sign up on LJ or DW, as you prefer. Signal boosts are appreciated, too!

"Kidfic" has so many connotations, doesn't it? Many people's minds instantly leap to the "downsizing" type of fic, and if that's your taste, that's fine. :) But there are also other types. Here's one of a very different flavor, as a way to offer an appetizer for the Soup. (Also, a way to do some WRITING for a change, okay. Plus a little distraction from RL, which I think a lot of us need right now.) It didn't go where I expected, but eh, that's par for the course when I'm writing SG-1. So be warned of an unexpected dose of Jack angst ahead. Oh, and that bingo card that I've been trying to fill for more than two years now? This should fit nicely in Ambiguous.

Summary: Appearances can be deceiving, as the team knows all too well. ~1,200 words. PG.

Written for Gen Fic Day and Epistolary Alphabet Soup, for whatever letter needs filling. :)

Letters don't always survive long enough to be read. References/spoilers for Secrets, Fair Game, and Forever in a Day; includes references to Daniel/Sha're. 1,330 words. Rated PG.

Lost Letters )

Written as backup for Off-World Alphabet Soup, and quite likely to undergo a title change when I find out which letter actually needs to be backed up. :)

...Yes, the title has been changed. It was originally "Judgment Day." Both titles fit, I think, although the emphasis in each is different. Perhaps the current one is a bit more hopeful, though.

The problem with amnesia is that memories aren't always in context. Missing scene from Fallen in Sam POV as the team tries to deal with Daniel's self-doubt. Includes references to certain episodes from S1 and S4. ~ 2,100 words. Rated PG.

X is for Xenolalia )

Written for Time Travel Alphabet Soup, and rather unimaginatively titled. In a missing scene from Moebius, Sam argues with Daniel, or maybe with herself. 800 words. Rated PG, with a warning for canonical major character deaths.

M is for Moebius )

I wanted to squeeze in at least one more fic this year, so here's another entry for my bingo card. The central square is marked Wild Card. Technically, you're supposed to be able to swap it with another square on your card. I chose to take it literally. :)

When Jack introduces Teal'c to Star Wars, he never imagines how obsessed his friend will become. Set immediately after 1969 with a few vague spoilers. ~1,400 words. Rated G.

Written for Friendship Alphabet Soup and to fill the Silence square on my bingo card.

Meditation isn't kel no reem, but it serves a purpose just the same. Teal'c and Daniel friendship, with references to Crossroads, Meridian, Revelations, and Changeling. ~1,410 words. PG.

R is for Rapport )

The second of the S3 bingo ficlets for the A Player of Games square: Jack will do his duty, even if he hates playing the game. Jack's thoughts on his team in Shades of Grey. 555 words, rated PG.

And whee! I have finally completed one line of my bingo card! 'Bout time. :)

Here's the first of the S3 bingo ficlets! This is for The Mind's Eye square, and is a bit of Janet POV from Legacy. What do you when you can't trust your own perceptions? 420 words, rated G.

The last of the S2 bingo ficlets, for the Trickster square. A bit of teamy goodness with Daniel in babble mode in the wake of Spirits. 408 words. Rated G.

Here's the next S2 ficlet for bingo, for the Secrets and Lies square. It's unpleasant to hear your own words reflected back at you, especially when you know they're right. Teal'c and Daniel, Family and Secrets. 406 words, and let's call it PG-13 for the subject matter.

Reflection )

I'm sort of proud of this one. :) For the A Brief Encounter is Pivotal square in my bingo card: Sam's choices in In the Line of Duty had tremendous impact on the universe. 464 words. Rated PG, with multiple AU deaths and apocalyptic histories, and spoilers for various S2 through S6 episodes.

Thanks to Aelfgyfu for reassuring me that this actually works!

This is the first of the S2 bingo ficlets, or "Bingo in SG-1 Minor" as I've been tagging them. :) For the Magnificent square, and the unimaginative title simply works too well to change.

Jack's thoughts during a bittersweet moment of The Serpent's Lair. 363 words. Rated PG.

Here's the last of the S1 bingo ficlets, this one from Within the Serpent's Grasp. It's for the Siblings square, and it's a bit of stream-of-consciousness for poor Skaara, at the moment when Klorel was doing its best to fry Daniel's brains. 305 words. PG.

Another S1 short for bingo! This one fills the Character Study square. Teal'c has new skills to learn as a member of SG-1, but he's a relatively quick study. Spoilers for First Commandment and Singularity. ~385 words, rated G.

Another short ficlet for my bingo prompts. This one is for the Wonder square. An experiment in 2nd-person POV, from Torment of Tantalus. ~380 words, rated G.
