For anyone who is a crazy Daniel fan (okay, I've read it, so I can add myself into that); There is an old Nora Roberts romance novel in which the male love interest is basically Daniel Jackson. The description of him, how he talks, mannerisms, it is definately who the author was modelling him on. The title is Heaven and Earth, and it's the 2nd of the Three Sisters trilogy. A friend who reads romance more than I do loaned it to me years ago, and if I remember right, the last book of the trilogy has him in it, too, though the emphasis of the story is on one of the other sisters and her love interest. Just thought I'd let you know... Liane
Haven't been around much lately but trying to get back into things.
I write fanfic. Almost solely SG-1 stuff. Sam/Jack centric but I have a few Daniel/Vala stories and several that are pretty gen (maybe a hint of shippy stuff in the background).
I've only been writing SG-1 since last October/November and have written so many stories I've lost count.
You can find them at jennickels.livejournal.com . They're also posted at ff.net (jennickels there) and at ao3 (justanotherjen there).
I usually don't have much trouble finding good fanfic but I mostly read Sam/Jack stuff and I have the Sam/Jack rec thread at Gateworld bookmarked. I check it all the time. I also have surrounded myself with superb writers on livejournal that put out great stories and rec even better ones. Livejournal has a HUGE Stargate community. It's a lot of fun, lots of challenges and fun things to do and great people to chat with.

Have you posted your fic anywhere? Maybe people could/would be interested in posting links to their favorite fics (is that allowed by spark rules?)

I figured that this is more of a getting to know you topic, so I've started it here. Most discussions about fanfic are welcome. If anyone wants to post their fanfic or links to it, that's fine, too. Remember there are guidelines for what is acceptable on spark, so not all fanfic may be appropriate to share here; Gateworld.net would be a good alternative for discussion/posting of more adult themed fanfic. I have no problem with general discussion of the more adult themed ideas here, such as slash, etc, but graphic detail will be in violation of spark rules.
I write some fanfic. My Stargate story is Atlantis-based, McKay-focused and very long. I've been working on it off and on for years. I enjoy writing dialogue for the characters I know so well; trying to really nail the way each speaks is fun for me.
I find it hard to locate good fanfic sometimes. I can't stand it when each line ends in an exclamation point! Seems like shouting to me! Know what I mean?
I have an idea about sending Sheppard to Destiny for 'season 3' of SGU. I think Sheppard vs Rush would be a fantastic dynamic. I've never warmed to Young, so I was going to have him not survive and have Homeworld Command find having a Lt in charge unacceptable. The pseudoscience for getting him on board that I came up with is based on tech I created for my Atlantis story, so I guess it will have to be another addition to that.
Well, that's my .02 cents, let's see what anyone else has to say about this topic.
