skieswideopen: Cam Mitchell in his Mustang and Vegas!John in his Mustang (SG: John/Cam cars)
Since there was some interest last night in John Sheppard/Cam Mitchell fic recs, I thought I'd spread out the work (and create a wider field of recs) by setting up a new central rec post at [community profile] sg_flyboys.

If you're interested in getting some recs, go leave a comment detailing what kinds of things you're looking for.

If you have some recs to share, go do that too!

There have been a lot of great new stories lately--and some new fans who might have missed the older stories--and I'd love to see all of the great fic get the attention it deserves.

I kind of feel like I should host a challenge or something and get people to write drabbles about what's going on in the gif. I mean, what exactly is John thinking there?

Five secrets people told Ronon (650 words, PG, includes Lorne/Parrish and an unspecified slash relationship for John that could be John/Cam if your tastes run in that direction) at [ profile] sg1_five_things.

And something [personal profile] maab_connor wrote for me: Cam/OFC comment fic at [community profile] fic_promptly for the prompt "living out his days on a planet that isn't Earth." Check it out!

So [ profile] gaffsie recently noticed that both [ profile] mcsmooch and [ profile] non_mcsmooch seem to have died a few months ago and decided to rectify that situation by creating a new, consolidated SGA kissing community: [ profile] sga_smooch. At which point she and I discussed and agreed that there's really no reason that SGA should have all the fun. (Especially since, if you go by what actors say at cons, there was a whole lot more kissing happening on the SG1 set than the SGA set.)

Therefore, I now present you with [ profile] sg1_smooch.

Both communities are open for entries from now until August 14th, and will periodically be open in parallel from now on. If you're not too busy writing for the Porn Battle, why not stop by?

Oooh, and while I have your attention, let me also point out that prompt claiming is now open at [ profile] apocalypse_kree, in case you want to come help end the world.

(P.S. If any of you would like to volunteer to be the back-up admin at [ profile] sg1_smooch, let me know. You probably won't have to do anything; I just like having contingency plans in place.)

Conversation seems to have died down, so on to the next step. (If you feel like you're not being given time to participate because of the speed with which this is happening, I'm sorry. I'm trying to maintain momentum here, so once I feel like a consensus has been reached--or as close to a consensus as we're going to get--I move on. But feel free to keep bringing up stuff from previous posts if you feel strongly about it. I haven't even created the community yet, so things can still change. And if you're not on my flist and are having trouble keeping up with the new entries, just track the 'alternative guide to sga' tag.)

First off, I want to clarify the purpose of this project. What I envision is for this project to serve as a guide for people who are interested in a particular character or pairing/poly relationship. A starting point. It's not meant to list every possible fic or fanwork in an area; just to tell people where to start looking. And it's meant to fill a gap. As far as I know, there are no beginner's guides for pairings/poly relationships other than McShep, and I'd really like to see one so that people who are drawn into the fandom by characters like Elizabeth or Teyla have some idea of where to begin, and people who are curious about new pairings/poly relationship have a place to start. We are, as several of you have put it, the [ profile] non_mcsmooch to the various [ profile] mcsmooch-type guides out there.

More details and discussion. )

(If you're reading this on DW, I really recommend coming over to LJ for the discussion, because that seems to be where everyone is, and it's easier to keep it in one location.)

The community has been created! Come over to [ profile] sga_guide and join in the fun there!

This story is based on the episode "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose" (transcript). Some dialogue by The Stupendous Yappi and Clyde Bruckman was lifted directly from the episode, including most of Bruckman's predictions, and his speech about paradoxes.
Summary: While visiting Earth, Sheppard's team is sent to investigate a serial killer who seems to be targeting people with the ATA gene.

I was rewatching "Sateda" recently, and I got to the point where Teyla says John lacks social skills, and...I'm trying to figure out where that comes from, 'cause I can't find any evidence of it in the show. Everything I've seen--the first meeting with the Athosians, giving Elizabeth a birthday gift, John's easy friendships with his (dead) colleagues in "Home," hanging out with Ronon, his interactions with his team and other people on Atlantis--suggests to me that his social skills are quite good. People seem to like him, and he doesn't strike me as really struggling in social situations. Now, if you want to call him introverted, or emotionally uncommunicative, or reluctant to form intimate relationships, I could get behind that. We certainly don't see him going around talking about his feelings, and I don't think that's just because the writers didn't bother showing us those scenes. But socially inept? I don't see it. Am I missing something?
