SG-1 Fic Rec and Search  
Now this is an awesome story. I'd love to find more like it.

Stay In Touch by tefnut

I know that green_grrl and starglyph have some amazingly kick ass rec lists and I will forever be grateful for them and their dedication to spreading the love. Because a person coming into the fandom this late in the game has so much to tread through and no real clue where to look without lists like these.

I understand that the types of stories I'd really love to read (they're basically my chocolate. srly.) are probably amongst their lists already but mixed in other categories that make them hard to locate...but I was wondering if anyone can point me to fics, or fic lists, that can be pretty much summed up as belonging in the 'mind-fuck category' (sorry, I'm used to the term mind-frell from the Farscape fandom). I guess pretty much anything where Daniel (or Cameron but I know I don't have much hope of finding any like that with him) has someone screwing with his head (memory, intelligence, sanity).

(and I really really really don't mean that request to be insulting to green_grrl and starglyph and if I have insulted you ladies I will so throw myself at your feet and beg forgiveness.)

I'm also looking for any really good stories where there's no happy ending, or rather where things aren't tied up in a nice bow and our heroes ride off in the metaphorical sunset. I want a real ending complete with messy consequences to the events of the story.

It's really weird how the more life sucks, the more I want to read stories like this. Okay, not so weird really when I think about it. I mean, I read Mayaan's fic to cheer me up. *g*

Oh! OH! There are several where Daniel gets his head messed with. When you say "someone", do you mean intentionally screwing his head or that it's just what happens.

Sparrow by Travelling One deals with the fallout from Fire and Water if they *didn't* break their conditioning and didn't go back for six years.

OH! Rats! There are two more that I just can't remember the names of. One is something like Memnophobia or something. They find a descended Daniel on another planet, only he's been impressed with a new personality and that individual doesn't want to give up his life for Daniel.

The other one was here on LJ. Oh! Serial Rediscovery, I think. Daniel has been whammied and can't retain memories about the SGC or his friends and has to rediscover them everyday.

I can't remember who wrote either one.


Did you ever read Creation Myth? By... Corby? JB? It's an oldie.

Intentionally is usually the best but accidentally works just as well. ;)

I read Sparrow for the first time about a week or so ago and loved it. I have it saved on my computer now.

I read Memnophobia. The author's name is on the tip of my tongue but I think it may be tripoli (and the irony that neither of us can remember her name for a fic about memory is not lost on me. *giggle*).
Yup! She's the one that wrote it!

Oh god.. Creation Myth hit so many bloody kinks I was reeling for a couple days afterward.

*goes to search for Serial Rediscovery*

Thank you!

Yes, I got something of a kick out of it, too. I don't know why I couldn't remember tripoli. This is definitely a favorite trope of mine, too. :-)

Found it!

You rock! Thanks!

We who share a kink must stick together. :-)

OH! How could I have forgotten some of these! And some are *new* to me!

Wait. Which ones are the whammies and which ones are the Not Happy Endings? Love the former, tend to hate the latter.

Not sure if any of this helps - trying not to give things away.

Five Things Jack O'Neill Never Told Cameron Mitchell [Not precisely whammy from an external sense, but Cameron discovering what it is to be a newbie]

Siege [Jack and Daniel friendship fic with mental whammy, not sad ending]

The Nature of a Man by ["Absolute Power" AU with Daniel mental-whammy. ending is...um...realistic?]

A Million Years into the Sky [team at the end of their exploring. Somewhat mental whammy. Happy but made me bawl my eyes out. future Cam/Sam referenced]

Five Ways Mitchell Found Out About O'Neill and Jackson [I think more whammy. At least one part where Daniel's head is messed with and lots of Cameron reeling with discovery mostly. Jack/Daniel with vague Cam/Daniel and maybe Cam/Vala (I may be mis-remembering that]

Limping Toward Bethleham [Daniel talking with...the reporter from "Heroes" in an AU where the program goes public and Daniel becomes the media whipping boy. Not exactly forced mental whammy, but certainly something. Ending isn't 100% sad but is mostly like Pandora's Box - a lot of bad with one glimmer of hope]

System of a Down [different take on Daniel's descension. One of my favorites. Jack/Daniel but way more than just that]

Puppy Dogs' Tails [Daniel descension but he comes back a bit wrong. There's some Jack-Sam-Daniel non-working jealous love triangle thing I remember working for me but not details thereof]

Desolation Angels [Shifu shows up and the Goa'uld parts of him start messing with everyone's minds, especially Daniel's, who is trying to be a parent. Um. Ending isn't all sad?]

Have Snake, Will Travel (Director's Cut) [Osiris escapes when they try to catch her in Daniel's house and takes Daniel hostage on a road trip. Daniel does not have a good time. I Love This Fic]

Five Billion Years of Sunshine [Seven alternate realities of ways SG-1 didn't save Earth. Apocafic but doesn't feel like a downer]

Coda [Daniel in our time has memories of an Egypt timeline that never happened. I think some Jack/Daniel but I'm not sure. not really downer ending]

Palimpsest ["The Quest" ends differently with a very fucked-up team and Daniel the worst and most mind-fucked of all. BEAUTIFUL STORY. Bittersweet end]

Dark Moon, High Tide by [info]tafkarfanfic followed by the sequel: Under a Broken Moon by [info]raqs. [Pegasus B only Ba'al is on Atlantis when they get there. Daniel and Sheppard are tortured by Ba'al. These two fics are amazing but also some of the fics most likely to hit me hard in the cut. Ending is...as good as you can hope for? Daniel/Rodney. Jack/Rodney (it works!). John/Teyla. Maybe others...]

This is Not Wartime [long, fantastically written, apocafic. Daniel hosts a Tok'ra for a bit. Sam/Jack/Daniel in various permutations. Also I think has Daniel/Janet]

On the Mortal Side [Moebius-fic]

The Bright and Hollow Sky [five things that will break Cam]

Ciphers [Daniel's brain gets messed up with a Tok'ra device. happy ending eventually]

Dust in the Wind [Daniel Moebius-fic. New meaning to "someone just walked over my grave"]

Mercenary [Daniel/OFC - not precisely a mindfuck, but Daniel developing coping methods for dealing with the real crap in his life]

All We Need of Hell [one of the only Jack/Sam fics I believe - Jack descends into Hell and pulls Sam with him - from the dark_fic ficathon and not a happy story but so good]

In His Kiss (the Vis Uban is for lovers remix) [post-descension amnesiac Daniel on Vis Uban]

Shades of Who I Used to Be [Daniel in "Fallen" trying to work around the holes in his brain]

the selves we had to be [Daniel snaps when the Ori invade Earth, goes to fight them]
Drifting Out at Sea [Ori apocafic with Cam PoV, mind-fucked Daniel, ending as good as you can want with some character death and no more Earth]
Preserve Your Memories [Sam/Daniel - with their minds being messed with]

*flails with glee* Oh you so freakin rock!!

Hee :)

Be careful saying that until you know if any of them fit the bill. It's a pretty wide range of stuff and I don't know your tastes well enough to be sure what will click.

I will warn that while:
Dark Moon, High Tide by [info]tafkarfanfic followed by the sequel: Under a Broken Moon by [info]raqs.

Are FABULOUS they are really really really hard to read. I mean, I totally get reading harsh/mind-fuck/etc fic when you're feeling in a grey mood but with these ones, especially the second, that's almost dangerous (Rydra described Raqs' fic as the best quiet depiction of PTSD she'd ever read and...yeah. *shivers*)

Hey Kaz, there was a fic I was going to tell you about, but I couldn't remember the title or the author.

So, I went over to Stargate Search (LJ) and put my request in. I'll have to wait for a response for the fic...

PS: there was also this post that was dumping on the Mitchell character again. This started when our sweet Ben first came to SG-1. I can't believe there are still people still griping...
Kaz: Broken (Cameron)kazbaby on June 4th, 2009 07:34 am (UTC)
There's been a couple posts dumping on him in their requests. I'm choosing to ignore them because they are the ones that are narrow minded enough to actually give the character a chance and seeing things they pick and choose. *high fives you for defending our boy*

I saw your request and I'd freaking love to read that story.
ninja007ninja007 on June 4th, 2009 08:04 pm (UTC)
It has a happy ending, though, so doesn't really fit your criteria. It ends really, really satisfyingly well. So, it has no messy, real life ending. Let me talk with Mitch...

There has been dumping on our dear Ben since the poor boy joined SG-1 and usually by those angry by RDA leaving the series and there is no Jack O'Neill. They haven't responded to my reply. Wondering if they ever will...
Kaz: Let's Face It  (Cameron)kazbaby on June 4th, 2009 08:27 pm (UTC)
Well in this case as long as it's a good mindfuck story I'll be happy. ;)

I know there's been dumping on Ben since the beginning. I just don't see why people choose to ignore the fact that Mitchell wasn't intended to be a clone of Jack. God I so hope they add Ben to the third movie so that we have Jack and Cam together and the nay-sayers can see that fact.

And if they respond to your comment, and without being asses about it, it'll be a miracle.
