Happy Phantom by Rillarilla (PG13)

Fandom Category: Dollhouse, Stargate: Atlantis
Pairing: Elizabeth Weir/John Sheppard
Fic Title: Happy Phantom
Author: rillarilla
Rating/Warning(s): PG13 (by reccer), Character death
Genre: Angst, romance
WIP?: Newp

Why This Must Be Read: Because the PTB never gave Elizabeth a fitting end, we're constantly looking to fic to find us one (when we're bold enough to accept that she's gone). This fic does it - and it does it by slipping the worlds of SGA and Dollhouse into the same universe, which is not only an awesome idea, but flawlessly done.

Seven Veils by comice

Fandom Category: Life
Pairing: Dani Reese/Charlie Crews, Olivia/Ted Earley
Fic Title: Seven Veils
Author: anjoufic
Rating/Warning(s): R/M for sexiness. Spoilers for both seasons.
Genre: Post-ep, friendship, romance, outside pov.
WIP?: Currently in-progress.

Why This Must Be Read: I think the thing I like most about this story is how different it is from actually watching the show. It's a inter-connected series of (eventually) seven stories that are all told from non-Reese and non-Crews points of view. This is outsiders looking in at the two main leads and I love how deft the author is at giving us bits and pieces of the characters she's writing along with bits and pieces of Reese and Crews. The author is also doing a phenomenal job of writing differently for each of her characters. In the last segment (5), Ted felt like Ted and that was completely different than Tidwell (6) and Bodner (7). This is an amazing story, and I can't wait to read the rest of it.

The Sleeping Warrior by annerbhp (PG-13)

The SG-1 challenge just finished, but let's pretend for a second it hasn't. *G*

Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Ishta/Teal'c; passing mentions of Teal’c/Drey’auc and Teal’c/Shau’nac.
Fic Title: The Sleeping Warrior
Author: annerbhp
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13; none.
Genre: Drama, action/adventure.
WIP?: nope.

Why This Must Be Read: A wonderful Teal'c voice, this fic focuses his relationships with others besides SG-1, including Ishta. Along with having a very nice mission based plot, this fic is lovely exploration of Teal'c separate from SG-1, taking stock of his life and living it away from the Tau'ri. Ishta through Teal'c's eyes is strong, able, but also real. Their relationship and their approach to it is subtle, full of an easy understanding of each other that I love.
