Daniel/Vala rec list.

So, I've read A LOT of Daniel/Vala fic, too many some might say, and here are some of them. Trust me when I tell you this doesn't even skim the surface of what I've read for these two.

Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: you can buy her things now but she'll never be bought
Author: minervacat
Link: http://minervacat.livejournal.com/936747.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; sexual situations, character issues with a capital I.
Genre: porn, character study, RST
WIP?: no.

Why This Must Be Read: This is is by FAR one of my favourite and one of the best portrayals of Daniel and Vala out there. The fic is pretty flawless, imho, in the development of Daniel/Vala's relationship, their flaws, their sexual tension, their friendship included. The characterisation is so well done that it it jumps of the page and sticks with you. Plus the sex is insanely hot. Insanely hot. (Really, I mean it, after this fic I couldn't believe there wasn't *more* D/V porn out here.)

Fic Title: Speaking of Vala
Author: troyswann
Link: http://troyswann.livejournal.com/333824.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13; mentions of past torture
Genre: friendship, character study
WIP?: no.

Why This Must Be Read: The friendship (and UST) here is so wonderful and real. Vala and Daniel have a conversation in where half truth and real truths are explored thanks to a visit from one of the SGC's allies, because even allies aren't all that perfect.

Fic Title: Late
Author: AV21
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3290934/1/Late
Rating/Warning(s): PG; none
Genre: friendship, team fic, UST/RST
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: One of my first Daniel/Vala fic that remains a favourite til this day. While the majority of the fic is Vala interacting with the other members of SG-1, it's really a fic about her relationship with Daniel and each of the members of SG-1 helps us understand it a little more through their interactions with Vala. It contains two ending, both utterly fulfilling in completely different ways.


Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: Coming Along
Author: Divine Joker
Link: http://www.midnightstorms.net/comingalong.htm
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; sexy times!
Genre: UST/RST, first time fic
WIP?: no.

Why This Must Be Read: The language in this fic is so lovely it worth reading just for that, and the porn is worth it too. A smooth telling of Daniel and Vala sharing a bed, several beds actually, and getting to the point where they are comfortable with each other, and letting each other in.


Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: Walls
Author: 6beforelunch
Link: http://6beforelunch.livejournal.com/77821.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG; snark!
Genre: friendship, UST
WIP?: no.

Why This Must Be Read: Six creates Daniel/Vala magic pretty much every time she writes. This is no different. A fun, snarky look at Daniel and Vala, focusing on one of the major themes in their relationship: Vala breaks down Daniel walls, Jack and the team approve of this.


Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: cut the light
Author: anr
Link: http://anr.livejournal.com/301017.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG, none.
Genre: friendship, UST, episode tag
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: A prefect episode tag for Memento Mori it depicts Daniel and Vala's friendship beautifully.


Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: Friends Come And Go
Author: princessofg
Link: http://princessofg.livejournal.com/205904.html
Rating/Warning(s): R; sexual situations, angst
Genre: angst, first time, episode tag
WIP?: no.

Why This Must Be Read: Really hot, really good episode tag to Dominion. A stolen moment between Daniel and Vala in a moment where Vala doesn't think any one is on her side any more.


Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: A Matter of Trust
Author: moonshayde
Link: http://moonshayde.livejournal.com/328101.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG, none
Genre: character study, friendship.
WIP?: no.

Why This Must Be Read: The other side of Daniel and Vala's relationship that isn't all snark, flirty banter and hot sex is one chock full of issues, capital I. Especially trust issues, on both sides. This fic explore that realistically. Trust isn't an easy to acquired as we all learn.


Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: Requiem
Author: havocthecat
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/havocs_cry/28889.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: angst, friendship
WIP?: no.

Why This Must Be Read: Short but lovely piece on trust, friendship and family. This is Daniel and Vala as they should be. This is a scene that should have been in the show. Wonderful characterisation on both parts and we see them talk and connect over the love of lost children. Havoc does a great job bringing the topic to light.


Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: The Matter at Hand
Author: cofax7 and jonquil
Link: http://cofax7.livejournal.com/386992.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; hot, dirty sexy times
Genre: action-adventure, romance
WIP?: no.

Why This Must Be Read: Daniel and Vala are trapped off-world and end up having to have sex in order to survive. The end. Okay, besides the insanely hot and in character sex they have, the fic is fun, and has a plot practically straight out of the show, just with the hot sexy times we all wish the PTB would show.

Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title:Crown of Janus
Author: Lady Grey
Link: http://www.sgcsquared.com/het/crown.htm
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17; sexual situation, some dark themes, angst.
Genre: action-adventure, romance, angst, UST/RST, angst
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: The backstory for Vala in this fic is absolutely amazing. Written way before s10 and the unfortunate inclusion of Jacek into canon, this fic gives Vala a background worthy of her awesome. It's completely different than anything expected, but such a worthy read. Here Daniel and Vala don't fall in love easily, but honestly with all their baggage in tow. The plot here is dense and includes aspects of the Gateverse you don't expect. I cannot rec this enough.


Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: Wild Animals
Author: milena_d
Link: http://milena-d.livejournal.com/15857.html?style=mine
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13; none
Genre: fluff, RST, future fic
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Okay, full disclosure, this was written for me in the dv_exchange, but it's completely adorable. A future fic, full of cuteness.


Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: It must be our lucky night
Author: squeelated
Link: http://squeelated.livejournal.com/17464.html
Rating/Warning(s): Light R, I guess
Genre: humour, caper, sexy times
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: This is just a fun and awesome fic! Sam and Vala get lucky. And Daniel gets drunk. The Daniel/Vala bits come into play around the middle of the fic, but before we get to them we're treated with some awesome Sam & Vala friendship and them being overall kick ass as they look to get out of a sticky (and slightly drunk) situation.



Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: Tech Support
Author: 6beforelunch
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/jack_built/20098.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13, angst. Ba'al.
Genre: AU, UST, angst, friendship, character study.
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Written for the AU comm jack_built in where all the Gateverse characters live in one building (Daniel lives with Rodney, and Vala lives with Cam and John) and get into wacky hijinks. Overall this comm/verse is light and funny, but in this particular addition Six delves into some darker sides of it, namely Vala's past and well, nails it for this verse. Wonderfully in character, this fic makes me always want more of Daniel and Vala in this verse.

Fic Title: Build Your Walls, I'll Tear them down
Author: kellifer_fic
Link: http://kellifer-fic.livejournal.com/94763.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG, none.
Genre: UST, friendship, romance, teamfic
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Lovely Daniel POV, lovely Vala characterisation, just a lovely fic overall. The title is perfect and just everything here makes you feel all warm inside.


Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: They Don't Know
Author: medie
Link: http://medie.livejournal.com/1571296.html
Rating/Warning(s): light R; sexual situations.
Genre: character study, romance.
WIP?: no.

Why This Must Be Read: Some time there's a lull in fic for any pairing and then someone post something that is just what you were waiting for. This was one of those fics. Short, poignant and fulfilling, Daniel and Vala shine here.


Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title:Salt of The Earth
Author: little_giddy
Link: http://little-giddy.livejournal.com/30926.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13; minor apoco!fic
Genre: apoco!fic, AU, character study
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Okay, I betaed this, not that it really was much more than me being in AWE, but yeah. I should also mention that whenever LG writes a fic I sorta feel it's a little gift for me. Regardless of that, this fic is amazing. The small parallels drawn on the religion of the Ori and Earth's own, the strive for survival in these characters, the way they interact with each other. It's all just wonderfully portrayed here.


Fandom Category: Stargate SG-1
Pairing: Vala Mal Doran/Daniel Jackson
Fic Title: In Sickness
Author: cutemara
Link: http://community.livejournal.com/wildwest_lantis/19158.html
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13; none
Genre: friendship, hurt/comfort, light-light UST.
WIP?: no.

Why This Must Be Read: Written in the wildwest_lantis verse, this takes place during the flu outbreak, in the Fever Series. The verse is pretty much a SGA verse (*points to the Lantis*) so finding this small and sweet Daniel/Vala fic was such a treat. Daniel is perfect in his worry and denial, taking care of Vala, but not being able to admit why. Oh, Daniel!
