So [personal profile] ratcreature is offering drawbles (a drabble-like drawing), and I asked for Teal'c meeting the avatar of Ratcreature as a Furling. And I got this! :D

Ratcreature as Furlings

Does that make you squee or what? :D

[personal profile] ratcreature has also treated me to another drawble in the past, a quick illustration of a rather cracky ficlet of mine. You can find it here.

...Or, I suppose, the cat named after him, which may or may not be alive after the Tollan got wiped out.

(yes that was a bad joke)

Feel free to comment here with recs for fic about Sam's cat. Or the Tollan. Or reread that fic in which Daniel grumbles about Schrodinger's archeologist. Or any kind of SG-1 squee, really. :D

As it is March 14, I bid you all Happy Pi Day!

Or pie, since this is SG-1.

Go check out this two-panel stick-figure comic from [profile] niamaea, with bonus Jack-and-Teal'c underneath.

Death Wish Ground Coffee

Possibly guaranteed to bring back the Ascended who are hankering for a good cup of joe?

Also, read the reviews for an extra grin. :)

I mean, come on, SGC. Could you at least pretend to take security a little seriously?

What do you expect when you allow reports of pyramid-shaped mountains glowing on other planets? I mean, yes, we all know Apophis et al aren't particularly careful about leaving their trash around, but...

Daniel fic: Son of Endless Sky, by [personal profile] rydra_wong.

Daniel of Abydos, by Nightspear. The link is for the first 4 books on AO3; you can find the last one here.

Beside me, singing in the wilderness, by Rigel.

Picspam: Niamaea's Everybody's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Vids: [personal profile] wyomingnot's Once in a Lifetime and The Man Who Would Be King

[personal profile] ninja007 tried to rec a slash fic but LJ wouldn't allow the creation of a link. My journal is apparently even more gen than I thought. :D Her comment is here.

Also? I have actually STARTED A FIC. For the first time in months. Whee! Not for off-world soup, as half the action is on-world, and not too many of them, but still. It's WORDS.

Here's to another year, Daniel! Stay alive. And sane!

Fifty, Daniel? Seriously? No one thought you'd get that far!

(Or possibly 49, as defining "four and a half years old" in the summer of '69 when he was born in the summer is, eh, a bit iffy. But 50 sounds better. So there.)

Comment here with your favorite Daniel fic/vid/meta/picspam. Or just general squee about Daniel will work, too. :D I'll post a roundup tomorrow!

To kick things off, some of my favorite Daniel fics:

Son of Endless Sky, by [personal profile] rydra_wong. Yeah, yeah, it's marked as J/D UST, but I think that's mostly because it's a remix of a J/D fic. My gen glasses have NO PROBLEM. :) It is a stunning outside perspective of Descended!Daniel and is just beautifully written.

Daniel of Abydos. by Nightspear. Despite my general dislike for kidfic, I love this AU so much. You get five novel-length books that cover seven years' worth of SG-1. Instead of dumbing down our Daniel, Nightspear rewrites history, so that Daniel is born on Abydos and first meets the rest of the team as a teenager. Events spiral in completely different directions because of that change, and I love every minute of it. The link is for the first 4 books on AO3; you can find the last one here.

Beside me, singing in the wilderness, by Rigel. I love Daniel's relationship with Skaara. This is just so evocative with gorgeous imagery.

And let's not forget Niamaea's gleeful Daniel picspam: Everybody's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

I saw this headline and giggled. Oh, SG-1, you really do eat my brain sometimes.

Apparently, today is the 80th anniversary of Elvis Presley's birth.

Has anyone written a fic in which Teal'c visits Graceland or partakes in the world's general obsession for Elvis? And if not, could someone write it? :)

I'm never good at remembering these things. Not sure what made me actually be on time for a change!

So here, have a little appropriate nostalgia. :)

[personal profile] magibrain posted an "ask me anything" entry, and then added, If you ask me something I'm just not going to answer, like "What's your home address and social security number?", I'll just write you a drabble for a fandom we're both in. (If I'm not aware of any shared fandoms, I'll just write you a drabble about an improbable crime-fighting duo or something.)

So I, of course, asked for a drabble with an improbable SG-1 crime-fighting duo. :) Mind you, SG-1 has precious few improbable crime fighting duos. But I got a great one anyway!

Go read a hilarious double-drabble featuring that famous crime-fighting duo, Walter the Chevron Guy and the MALP! And grin. :)

I'm aware that steampunk is a fascination for lots of you, even if I don't see it myself. :)

So I subscribe to a nifty little website calls Pixel of Ink, which links you to various free Kindle books from Amazon. Yes, I skip past most of 'em, but I've collected a nice batch of cookbooks, some excellent non-fiction works, and lots of readers for my little ones.

This morning's offer includes SteamDrunks: 101 Steampunk Cocktails and Mixed Drinks. Of course I couldn't resist, even though I've never drunk a cocktail in my life!

So. Ugandan Ginger Tea and Peach Milk Punch and Kentucky Egg Nog...

If you've ever had a hankering to set the team back in the 19th century, possibly with Sam and Daniel arguing over the best way to make cocktails, you will probably get some use out of this one. You do need an Amazon account, but you don't have to use a Kindle to read this - you can use Amazon's Kindle cloud reader, or use their free application for reading on your desktop.

If you do decide to get this, check the price before you click! These freebies seem to last only a day or so and I just opened my e-mail now, Sunday morning.

And if this does inspire some SG-1 steampunk fic... please send me the link. ;)

It's July 8th, Daniel's birthday!

Comment here with Daniel Jackson squee, if you're so inclined. :)

A few Daniel links of my own to get things started!

some Daniel fics of mine )

some favorite Daniel fics of others )

Good grief, Fig, that's going a little overboard, isn't it? So let's just end with a link to [profile] niamaea's gleeful Daniel picspam: Everybody's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man.

Stay alive another year, Daniel, will ya? As a personal favor. ;)

Item the first: [personal profile] colls is spoiling me rotten, because she has podficced me again! :D Click here for her excellent take on Where the Future is Being Made Today.

Item the second: I'm a bit behind in my 12 for 12 challenge for [info]gate_women, but here is a list of Janet fic recs. Some are old friends; a few are newer ones. All of 'em are good!

Item the third: Has someone been joyriding in a swiped mothership after a few too many drinks? Mysterious phenomena like this make that "plausible deniability" thing even harder for poor Paul Davis to manage. ;)

A few days ago, [personal profile] holdouttrout conducted the perfect Sam Carter poll. Make sure you scroll down to enjoy the picspam in the comments.

And now it is Pi Day, which must be an SG-1 favorite, both in terms of pi and of pie. So comment here with Sam love. Or Jack love. Or pi or pie love.

But do this Benevolent Dictatrix a favor, and keep that love gennish. ;)

So [personal profile] ratcreature is offering drawbles -- hand-drawn doodles. Despite her claims that these quick sketches aren't really good for fanfic illustrations, I asked for crack!SG-1 from The Daniel Jackson Theory of Hairy Relativity and got... well, go check out the fic and glee together with me, will you? :)

Thank you, [personal profile] ratcreature! You have totally made my day. :)

I place the blame for my following Real Life solely on [personal profile] aurora_novarum's shoulders. I believe she is quite smug about it. :)

Anyway, while still playing catch-up to what I missed while I was offline, I discovered that Real Life has begun what promises to be a truly hilarious Stargate arc. You don't have to follow the comic to enjoy this; it's enough to know that Tony is an evil genius and that the entrance to his underground lair is in Greg's house. Start here and just keep reading!
