It's about time I created a list of the fics I've written that are on dreamwidth or livejournal.

This is a work in progress.

I've written a lot of stuff!Collapse )

Hello!
gategremlyn
I'm popping in briefly to say that I haven't fallen off a cliff or anything. I've just stepped away from the Internet for a bit to deal with real life. I'm going to try to get caught up in a few emails and then disappear again. I'm very grateful that the Stargate love is still alive and well. Hello! *waving*

Oxam and Fidalan stood by the now-quiet circle.

“Will they come back,” Oxam asked, “the people of Earth?”

“They must,” Fidalan replied.

“Daniel?” Jack leaned forward to catch the attention of his distracted friend. He got no response so he tried again. “Daniel, are you paying attention?”

“Of course I’m paying attention, Jack. I’m just ignoring you.” Daniel continued to rifle through his notes.

“Did you want to add anything to this team briefing?”

“Team briefing plus one,” Daniel said without looking up.

“Plus one.” while snippy, was true since Jack had been summoned from Washington to the mountain to join the team on temporary assignment.

I've tried to stay out of the political melee but I couldn't resist this one.  (I'm still waiting for tomorrow to be over.)

This is an amazing video about Luke Skywalker's lightsaber. DON'T watch it if you haven't seen the movie. It has a LOT of spoilers. Read more...Collapse )</div></div>

Everyone has a weakness
Word count: 1900

Era: Season 9
Categories: Friendship, Humor, Angst, Team
Author's notes: Thanks to Denny for the beta!


Excerpt: "You're saying I lost control of my unit."

“On my first day at Stargate Command, Landry asked me, 'What's your kryptonite?' It's bugged me ever since.” Cam felt better having shared this piece of vital information with his team. After six hours in a dungeon, they were cold, tired, and sore. The conversation had also become a little maudlin as rescue seemed further and further away.

Soup's on!

sg_fignewton  is hosting another Stargate alphabet soup. The stories should be gen and they should have an epistolary theme.

I've snagged the letter K--but I don't know what I'm going to do with it yet.  

The post to sign up is HERE. Go on. You know you want to. ;-)

1. I saw the new Star Wars movie. I want to see it again! I had a few issues with it, but for the most part, I really liked it. I also saw it with two of my boys and that made it extra-special.

2. I'm 3/4 of the way through Ancillary Justice. Wow! This is a book I'll be re-reading.

3. Berty posted two new Christmas fics at Ao3,  [personal profile] tallulah_rasa posted a new Christmas fic and an SG1/West Wing crossover. Both are fabulous.

4. I re-read jdj's fic  Journey's End,  which just says Christmas to me in so many ways. *sigh*

5. I have eaten too much in the last few days. In penance, I went for long walk with the dog today. I will need to be much more penitential to burn off these calories.

6. Hello! 



Here
gategremlyn
I'm sorta kinda back. I'll be busy with Christmas preparations for the next few days, but I should be around from time to time to see what people are up to. I hope people are writing my favorite partnership, Jack and Daniel, and that I'll have time to read and maybe even write.

Talk to you all soon!

Summer READING, Watching, and Eating
gategremlyn
Reading: I finished The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. It's the second book of a trilogy, and the third book is due out in 2016. It will definitely be on my reading list. I've really enjoyed this series although book two left a lot of loose ends that will need to be tidied up in book three.

I also read Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. Very intriguing and very different! I really enjoyed it. Thanks to [Unknown LJ tag] for the recommendation.

And I've been reading Jack/Daniel ficathon stories as well as Off-world Soup stories. Between those two things, our fandom posted 50 new stories. We are an awesome group!

Watching: I've lost interest in both Poldark and The Astronauts Wives Club. But I watched all three seasons of Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom in a week. I don't think the series isn't as good as The West Wing, but still very compelling.

Eating: Homemade vegetable soup and fresh tomatoes from my garden.

M is for Mourning: A Second Sorrow (for off-world alphabet soup)

M is for Mourning: A Second Sorrow, by GateGremlyn (G)

Summary: Daniel buries Sha're.
Word count: ~2900
Characters: Jack O'Neill, Daniel Jackson, Samantha Carter, Teal'c, Kasuf, George Hammond, Janet Fraiser
Era: Season Three
Categories: Gen, angst, hurt/comfort
Author's notes: Episode tag for Forever in a Day

Written for Off-world Alphabet Soup

Excerpt:

Jack spoke carefully, “You've been through it once? You mean you attended a funeral while you lived on Abydos?”

“No, I mean I've buried Sha're before.”

Link to Archive of Our Own: M is for Mourning: A Second Sorrow

Daniel's instructions were quick and concise: “Kasuf will know how to prepare the body for burial. Tell him his good son bows to his judgment in this matter. He'll understand.”

Still stunned by the scene in front of him, Jack looked at Daniel still on the floor beside his wife. He looked at Teal'c still standing with his staff weapon in his hand. He looked at the body of a beautiful woman, Sha're, still reaching out to her husband. And he wondered how the hell it had all happened. “Teal'c?”

“Amaunet had him in the grip of a ribbon device. I had no choice but to fire.”

Diminutive Pluto

Summer reading, watching, and eating
gategremlyn
Reading: I'm done with the Vorkosigan Saga. I'm not going to read the two prequels, at least not yet, because they don't have any of the characters I love. I might catch up with them later. 

Shards of Honor and Barrayar both have the same kick-ass heroine, Miles' mother. Terrific! 

Captain Vorpatril's Alliance did wow me as much as I wanted it to. I love Ivan, but I need him to be Miles' foil and not a main character. It was still good fun. Cryoburn was excellent, one of my favorites in the series. The end of the story was heart wrenching--and I even knew it was coming.

So, is Lois McMaster Bujold a Stargate fan? At one point in Cryoburn, someone sees a pyramid and someone else makes a comment about "Denial." A page later she mentions an Unas. I laughed out loud. The very end of the story is a series of 100 word drabbles. I thought of Sid. 

Watching: I caught Man from U.N.C.L.E. again last night. I love that show.

Eating: I've been cooking up a storm: peanut butter bars, sweet and sour meatballs, homemade spaghetti sauce. 

What I haven't been doing is writing. *sigh* I't's like all the words have dried up. Ah, well. 

Summer reading, watching, and eating...

Reading: I've been on a reading binge. I've read Mirror Dance, Memory, Komarr, A Civil Campaign, and Winterfair Gifts. Mirror Dance is pretty dark, A Civil Campaign is rather sweet and funny in a couple of places. Winterfair Gifts (which turned out to be the only new read on the list) was an outsider's point of view and very well done. I'm so enjoying this.

Watching: I watched the first episode of Poldark. It was good but not great. I watched the second episode of Astronaut Wives Club. Also good but not great. Maybe I'm just hard to please.

Eating: Lemon bars. Fabulous!

Oh, and there's a tornado warning at the moment. It's pretty eerie outside.

Reading: I just finished Brothers in Arms, the next book in the Vorkosigan saga. It's the usual wonderful stuff and I love Ivan even more. I think this is where I stopped last time. So now I should be in new and unknown territory.

Watching: I watched The Astronaut Wives Club. I really enjoyed it. I did sit with Wikpedia open so that I could look up the astronauts. At the moment I'm watching Man from UNCLE. So are Napoleon Solo and Han Solo related? ;-) What I'm not watching is Poldark because my antenna is not being cooperative and I have no reception at the moment.

Eating: Chicken gyros with tzatziki sauce. It would be great except that I'm not a big fan of yogurt. You'd think I'd remember something like that. Maybe I'll try it with sour cream next time.

Summer reading, watching, and eating... and other stuff
gategremlyn
Reading: Labyrinth. Have I mentioned how much I love this series? If you haven't read it yet, why not? Great characters, lots of adventure, humor--what's not to love? The Vorkosigan Saga.  Lois McMaster Bujold is the author.

Watching: Stargate's Lost City: Parts 1 & 2--and rereading [personal profile] paian 's fics to go with them. Great stuff.

Eating: Caramel apple bundt cake. The caramel gets drizzled over the top. Yum! 


Did you know that 20 (or 21) people signed up for the [community profile] jd_ficathon?

Did you know that there's an Off-world Alphabet Soup cooking? Grab your letter today.

Did you also know that things are underway for the Stargate Big Bang?

Our fandom is alive and kicking. It's going to be a great summer.

Reading: Finished Borders of Infinity. As is often the case with Bujold, the secondary characters shone. It's also a great character study of Miles, the protagonist. But on the whole the story felt a little forced. Not my favorite of the series. I think I skipped over Labyrinth so I need to catch that one next.

Watching: Binge watched four episodes of Pride and Prejudice (the 1995 miniseries) [personal profile] princessofgeeks  mentioned that she wanted to watch it and I remembered that I had it in my Amazon queue . I liked it although there were a couple of moments where I wasn't sure if I was watching a comedy or a drama, and it jolted me out of the story for a bit.  I don't remember the book giving me that feeling. On the whole, very well done.

I also watched "Torment of Tantulus" twice for [personal profile] jdjunkie 's Stargate extravaganza. Is it Friday yet?

Eating: I made pork chops with caramelized onions and apples. Very easy. Very tasty.
