Specific Stories

Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead by [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza - Gorgeous, GORGEOUS McShep piece about their post-Siege visit to Earth. It breaks your heart and then stitches it back together with love and symphony and football and cats. Oh oh oh.

Nothing else but the mysterious pull of the moon by [livejournal.com profile] mirabile_dictu - Epic, multipairing futurefic.

Freedom's Just Another Word for Nothing Left to Lose by [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic - Literally one of the best pieces of fiction I've ever read, period. Rodney, future-fic, post-Atlantis, with implied McShep. It's gorgeous and heartbreaking and is guaranteed to make you cry.

Transcendental by [livejournal.com profile] astolat - Epic story that feels like a particularly fantastic two-parter episode. Features the Genii. Entertaining and hot and just fabulous.

Bell Curve, or, Ladies' Night at the Boom Boom Room by [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock - Long AU McShep. Hilarious and wonderful. Also the first story I ever read in this fandom, and it left no question - my soul was sold :)

String Theory by [livejournal.com profile] toft_froggy - Another long AU McShep :D I like those. This one is really emotional and poignant and quietly gorgeous.

Alpha Centauri by [livejournal.com profile] hth_the_first - A wonderfully complex and fascinating and HOT John/Rodney/Ronon. So so good.

A Farm in Iowa by [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon - A beautiful, perfectly characterized McShep AU (I told you like those! So does this fandom :)) that just makes me sigh with happiness. Everything else she's written is wonderful too.

Ardhanaraishvara by [livejournal.com profile] auburnnotlisa - Genderswap that's not crack! This story takes a tired fic cliche and turns it into a fascinating psychological study of every one of the team members, looking at gender roles and identity and all kinds of thinky things. I haven't even finished it, as it's something insane like 200k words, but it's like reading a great novel, you can pick it up and put it down at any time and always want to come back. Well well worth it!

Other Comprehensive Rec Lists

Gigantic page of recs - I haven't even begun to break into all of it. It's not all McShep, but plenty is.

Ridiculously fun and awesome rec list format


My McShep memories - Includes many stories from authors not mentioned above, whose stories I often didn't memory because they were off LJ.

YAY McShep!

I've read both "Transcendental" and "Freedom's Just Another Word" multiple times...I have both fics bookmarked on my BlackBerry, in fact. Those two alone are some of the best fan fiction I've ever come across. I'm definitely going to be looking into more of these - I especially like longer fics that cover several chapters.

Oh god, isn't Freedom just STUNNING? I need to read it again, because I haven't yet. I need to mentally prepare myself or something, it's just that powerful. I hope you find some stuff you like :) All the ones I linked are pretty damn long.

Thanks again for feeding me with the fics. I shall get to work on 'em ASAP. :D

You are very welcome! I love spreading the love. You will never be hungry for fic, that I promise :D

I've only read a couple of these so DEFINITELY memorizing for future reading. :D Can never have enough McShep fic, is what I always say. :D

Oh whee! All of these are classics, in my opinion. So damn good! \o/ You enjoy, miss! :D

Thanks for the linkage, honey. I ADORE "Freedom" and String Theory, and to have more good SGA fic to read is icing on the cake. :)

You're more than welcome! :D There's so much fantastic SGA fic out there. Enjoy!

Thank you so much for all of the recs. I beta SPN for [livejournal.com profile] pushkin666, but she also writes in SGA, and while I have been catching up on her SGA stuff, I have been trawling through the internets, looking for other SGA fics to read. (I've been watching SGA from the beginning, but have just now started reading fic in this fandom, yay!) This post is like manna from heaven to me. I haven't read any of these, and there are some authors that I know from their fics in other fandoms, so I know that I am getting quality. Thanks for posting this for everyone, I really appreciate it! We all win! \o/

Oh I'm so glad! I was pimped very thoroughly into the fic of this fandom, and it's truly truly fantastic. All of these stories (and so many more!) give me such pure glee. I hope you enjoy what I've linked! You're welcome!

I am a sucker for a good story, as well as a schmoop whore (pushkin's a great writer, which will pull me in every time, but her stuff is DARK), so this list looks to be right up my alley. Thanks again!

How did I not see this? You ROCK.

I just added a bunch, it was just the individual stories before! Now I can immediately point any newbie right here! Yay!
