I just found this sitting around my drive, nearly complete. I'm hoping I haven't already posted it somewhere. That's happened to me before.

Title: Teamwork
Fandom: Stargate SG-1
Characters: Sam and Jack

Word Count: 450
Summary: Sam's had a long night. If only she had a viable exit strategy.

As parties go, this one sucks )

Via [personal profile] rydra_wong and [personal profile] executrix: The Up Goer Five meme in which you describe your canon, using only the ten hundred most common words (and their derivatives).

See Up Goer Five and the Up Goer Five Text Editor.

I should probably have done something else, but I couldn't help thinking that Stargate would be delightfully challenging.

1. "Earth" is not allowed. This surprised me.

2. It took me forever to realize that "human" was allowed, so at first I was using "people of the type that live on our ball of ground and water."

3. I'd love to see what other people did for both Stargate and other fandoms.

Okay, I finally finished all the meme requests, so I figured I should take a break from the Olympics and do a roundup. I had so much fun with this one--thank you all for playing along. Links below go to the thread for each request, so you can see which prompts I couldn't fill, just for fun. *g*

[livejournal.com profile] mrspollifax asked for Sam/Caldwell.

Title: Close to Perfect
Fandom: Stargate SG-1
Rating: PG
Category: Fluff
Pairing: Sam/Jack
Summary: If something was going to happen, it would happen soon. AU post-Moebius.
Notes: I've been feeling nostalgic lately, and reading a lot of Sam/Jack fic. I thought, "Hey, if I'm feeling nostalgic, maybe someone else is, too." So I dove into my WIP folder and found this nicely indulgent little thing, waiting for a decent ending.

The Fannish things: there are no spoilers, but there is some flailing )

LIFE things include angsting over getting my hair cut (to the point where I'm working myself into a neurosis of some kind), more birthdays than I can even think about, and an upcoming wedding for one of my good high school friends. Good stuff, but busy stuff!

I just saw a comment from [personal profile] ultranos that said that Stargate is the Hotel California of fandoms, because people move on but they never leave. I can personally attest to that.

Also, I think that once I'm in a fandom, I'm a tenacious little fangirl. Oh, I have my flings, but when a fandom gets me, it gets me HARD, and then I write fics. LOTS of fics. *g* I suppose I might be ready for another True Fandom in about two years or so.

In other news, I am on Pottermore! Let me know if you want my user name, and I'm TOTALLY a Ravenclaw, which I was hoping for with crossed fingers like whoa. :-) :-) :-)

This show, it is SO GREAT. I just finished watching Desperate Measures and Wormhole X-Treme and Proving Ground, and I love it so much it HURTS.

1. I love how Desperate Measures is not "Team rescues Sam from really, really stupid people," but "Team helps Sam rescue herself from really, really stupid people." (Look, the really really stupid people should know better or at LEAST be more cautious, but whatever. Sam kicks ass the whole ep, even if she does get captured by two (three?) very questionable "ninjas.")

2. Wormhole X-Treme? It made me laugh on a not great day, and it just has so many fun, meta-y things. I don't think I'd seen this episode since the Sanctuary season.. two(?) ender with the rapid-fire Zap-zap-zap bit that goes on for two years (at LEAST), and when I got to that part of THIS ep, I just laughed and laughed and laughed and had to lean against the wall to keep from sliding into an absurd little puddle of laughing fish.

3. Watching Proving Ground while knowing what's going on is also pretty hilarious, mostly because there are all sorts of nifty tells throughout the whole Foothold Scenario. Also: Daniel on the phone with Jack and making sure he's not supposed to get shot this time is brilliant.

Last night, after making myself some pasta with cheese, cabbage (fried, and so-so), and some tuna fish (don't even ask), I settled down to be COMPLETELY unproductive. I was so unproductive that I ended up watching Legend of the Seeker vids for quite a bit of the night, in between rounds of bejeweled.

Oh, LotS, with your epic hair and unexpected female friendship and gratuitous cleavage/thighs and pretty, pretty landscapes. *sighs dreamily* No matter how stupid I felt the plot got right at the end of season two, I will never, EVER forget that it did some things so, so right.

I am on the VERY LAST EPISODE of season four of Stargate. Jack not getting all his memos! Jaffa revenge thing! BLOWING UP A SUN.

Is it wrong, though, that I get depressed every time I watch Double Jeopardy? I feel like it's sort of wrong to mourn the robots, but they just get the short end of the stick, and it all happens at once, and they were separate people, damn it.

If you're the kind of person who likes nearly impossible choices (but not necessarily impossible ones), then there's fun for you at the final round of [livejournal.com profile] sf_marchmadness today! It's Sam Carter versus Aeryn Sun--a very good matchup, indeed!

I am going to make carrot soup tonight, and I'm currently debating about adding the non-orange carrots I have to the mix. I think it might make it look disgusting, but I'm not sure. Thoughts?

My SG-1 rewatch is still going strong. I just finished 2010 this morning more nostalgia below )
holdouttrout: parrot that says *thinks at you* (telepathic_parrot)
You guys, I am SO IN LOVE with this show all over again. Though season three is making it rather hard not to fall back into my rabid Sam/Jack shipper ways. *uses obscurely appropriate icon that may or may not be available over on lj these days*

There are looks, you guys. Some of them are looks that express things. Okay, mostly things like, "I find you amusing even though I think it says bad things about my sense of humor, sir," or "Carter, I still don't understand what you just said, but I'm hoping you're right." Or other things like, "Uh oh, Daniel's got that alien princess/leader/artifact thing going on again." But Still. Looks.

Also, there is much OT3 subtext. And OT4. And Sam/Teal'c. And fun teamy friendship.

I just watched Shades of Grey, and Jack was a total ass. I really hope they gave him crap for quite a while. I mean, yes, understandable, but wow. Total ass.

I am still not quite sure what to think about One Hundred Days. I think... I think maybe I just wish it ended a bit differently, but I'm not sure exactly how. I even like Laira, but... augh. I have a sneaking suspicion my ambivalence *might* come from my Sam/Jack proclivities. Maybe.

On the other hand, Urgo just makes me giggle the whole way through. I love that Teal'c gets to take part in the wacky alien influence this time around, because he often has to be the odd man out--this is always blamed on Junior, and while it does make some sense, it also means that he gets left out of some fun shenanigans.

1. Don't you hate it when you suddenly remember something you've been needing to look up online, and you go to do it, and then the phone rings, so you spend a couple of minutes being pleasant while you're thinking, "Can't forget! Mustn't forget!" only to hang up and find out that you've forgotten?

2. Why is it that the sound of my coworker texting, which is a really quiet almost-typing sound, drives me to contemplating scaling the cubicle wall and snapping off the QWERTY keyboard part of her phone?

3. SG-1 is still SO my show. ♥ I've been re-watching, and am in season three (Yes, again. Be quiet.) and I just have so much love for Sam and Teal'c this time around (mostly Sam & Teal'c right now). Jack just cracks me up, but that hasn't changed. I just watched a scene this morning from Rules of Engagement that goes something like this:

Sam: Oh, hey! Colonel O'Neill has a great idea about how to accomplish this goal, don't you, sir?

Jack: *looks confused* "Uh... okay?"

Sam: *explains idea*

Teal'c: That is indeed a good idea, O'Neill.

Jack: *looks confused and smug*

It's a great scene. Especially Teal'c pwning. Also, I guess Daniel's okay. *grins*

3b. I have to say, though, that Point of View wins the award for most awkward kiss ever. I can't decide whether I want to kill Jack for (our) Sam*, sympathize with Dr. Sam, or just watch the kiss again. It's very confusing!

*Not so much because I feel that only our Sam should be kissed by Jack, but because it's such an asshole thing for him to do in the first place, especially in front of her and the whole rest of the base.

4. I'm still watching-but-not-obsessing-about Revenge and Once Upon a Time. I want my characters to be a bit more competent, please! I think Emma (Once) needs a more immediate villain or something she can actually win at for a change.

This is a compilation of the fics that I keep going back to, time and time again, for a shot of the stupid cute, be they funny, smutty, angsty, or crackalicious. Are we still saying -licious?

See? This is how nostalgic I'm getting!

Of course, these barely scratch the surface of all the fics I know, love, and re-read. I mean, it's really ridiculous how many are NOT on this list. But I have to go to bed sometime!

More Sam/Jack fics are tagged here. Also, I highly recommend searching out the other fics by any and all authors mentioned in this post, and I'm sure I forgot some very talented writers, too.

Category: Humor; Gen; Classic Team Era
Word Count: 1600

Summary: With everything SG teams and staff encounter, who can they turn to and get some honest, practical advice?

Holdouttrout's Author Note: This is what happens when I make comments about random things to people with the time and inclination to write fic... and I like it. :-) I made some comment to [livejournal.com profile] aurora_novarum one time, and she started writing this fic. Then, as revenge, she shoved it my way. She'll try to take the blame, but she definitely deserves most of the credit.

First of all, a very happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] aurora_novarum, who has been awesome these past few weeks in keeping me entertained, and listened to me marvel about my cat more than once. Seriously, she really is just that nice.

Second, I bring fic! (Alas! No cake on the internets.)

Fandom: Stargate SG-1
Category: Gen, OCs

Summary: I got to thinking about how lucky SG-1 was that they never had anything that transformed them permanently, and how there must be a few SGC personnel who weren't so lucky. Thus this was born.

Fic Ahoy! (no, there are no pirates) )

Each day of being sick brings a new and inventive horror. Today, it's a headache with coughing, and some kind of weird backache for no reason I can reason out. I'm doing my best to avoid coughing, which seems to help a bit. As long as I don't lay down.

Also: I have been informed that you're not supposed to do chores when sick, where chores means doing laundry and/or vacuuming. But I say that even when sick, and maybe especially when sick, things sticking to the bottom of feet is really, really, really annoying. And also laundry is not that difficult. Taking showers is way harder.

Don't take showers when you're sick. Unless someone is home to drag your naked, wet body out of the bathroom when you faint.

Not that I did that*.

I have been using my time home wisely and watching a ton of SG-1. I decided I needed to see all ten seasons from the beginning, in order, which is a new experience for me. So I started with CotG on Saturday and am now in the middle of "Bane."

rambling about episodes )

*I actually didn't do that. Faint, I mean. I did take a shower, which was a mistake today. Yesterday, however, it was bliss.

It's [personal profile] fignewton's birthday today, and in typical fashion, she's the one giving out the gifts! She wrote a lovely Jack and Daniel fic, Waiting for Daniel, spoilers through season 6.
