Why This Must Be Read:

Kaylee have been captured by Reavers and barely surviving on their ship. Circumstances are extremely grim. Until one day a new, strange prisoner arrives...

What happens to Kaylee and Rodney is horrific, and it's written from the POV of a Kaylee who has been bludgeoned into becoming matter-of-fact and almost affectless about the horror, though bits of her canon personality still peek through. The way she and Rodney end up escaping the Reavers is a nice ironic twist. (Don't feed Wraith to those who know what they are.) A short but haunting story, which, despite the warnings and grimness, ends on a note of real, sweet hope. It has a sequel that, although it deals with PTSD, offers a happy ending.

Why This Must Be Read:

In this short fic, Cofax gives us a wonderful look at Sam Carter at the very beginning, freshly back from Chulak after the events of "Children of the Gods," and realizing what becoming a field officer will truly demand. I love early-series SG-1 fics that look at the formation of the team, but this one stands out because it's just Sam, tired, sore, and recalibrating her own standards for herself. Sam's grim struggles with her shoelaces capture the brilliance and determination that make her who she is, at the same time as they invite us to reconsider the episode in terms of her physical experiences. Instant headcanon!

Snippet of fic:

An Air Force captain is fit, strong, always ready for duty. Five times a week, Sam runs five miles. She lifts weights, stretches, takes the occasional aerobics class. She can defend herself hand-to-hand and with a wide array of weapons.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a charming and engaging story, and what I love most is how wonderfully in-character everyone is, despite the fairy-tale AU format. Rodney, especially, is utterly himself, even transformed into a fox - as the excerpt below shows. A delightful read.
