Summary: "I hope you picked someone really intelligent, otherwise it seems like it would be kind of a waste. Of incubation time, if nothing else."
When I started my Deli.cio.us bookmarks
and began madly tagging SGA fics, I added in a tag called favorites
so that I would be able to find the fics I really
liked more easily. I consider this to be a fairly elite tag; anything I tag I'd recommend to the world at large, but anything that's a favorite is something I dearly love and go back to often. So to get us started in this comm, I'm planning to rec all my favorite SGA fics.
Now that I've explained that, the actual rec.
Firstly, and here I am putting off the rec part again, I absolutely love AU fic. I really do think that there's an alternative universe out there for every decision we make, or every possible chance that may or may not occur. So fics about this absolutely delight me. While I don't mind reading fic that's AU in the sense of "so Rodney plays concert piano and John is his page turner" [okay maybe not that particular fic], I much prefer AU fic in the sense of "here's another way things might have happened for these characters." This fic is very much aware that in some other timeline, these characters went other ways, and the acknowledgement of it is one of the things I like best about the fic.
I also love Rodney's parenting. I think his style is totally in character [and John's reaction is, too!] and endearing as hell.
Okay, it is time for breakfast as I seem to have run out of steam. jenna_thorn
