Pairing: Sam Carter/Jack O'Neill
Fic Title: Rationale
Special Rec: 15/31
Why This Must Be Read: Old-skool, and still brilliant. Set after the episode Death Knell, this is what the show would never have even considered showing us but should have, damnit. This is a Sam who is broken, but still strong. Hurting, but still able to feel. Wonderfully written, this story is classic Sam/Jack.
