gen; Rodney, Jeannie; ~4500 words
summary: Rodney and Jeannie backstory. It's not exactly family harmony.
A really intriguing look at Rodney and Jeannie growing up. I love the way their relationship is explored in flashbacks, frozen moments of their family history that paint a clear picture. Wonderful character study with plausible backstory.

gen; PG; Teyla & Sam; 2000 words

Truth in Action by tridget
gen; PG; post-“Trinity”; Characters: Rodney, John, Ronon, Teyla, Lorne; ~ 13,600 words
Summary: The Doranda disaster was just the beginning of trouble for Rodney.
why rec'd: This story deals with the aftermath of the Doranda debacle in a way I really like (not being a fan of YABS fic...) I find Rodney's and John' s reactions believable - Rodney driven by guilt and ending up working himself into the ground in his desire to make things right... I can see that happen. The whump is well written.
What I like a lot is that Tridget doesn't ignore what else happened in the episode - Ronon abused Teyla's trust too, after all, and must be dealing with similar feelings as Rodney. I really enjoyed reading the moments between the two teammates - my favorite part. All in all, this story rounds off the episode well.
The Long Star Mile by Blue Shadowdancer / frith_in_thorns
gen; PG-13; Characters: Mostly Rodney and John, some team; ~26,000 words
Summary: There is a lot of space between the stars, and it's a lot of space to be alone in. Injured, McKay and Sheppard are just trying to get home, but the galaxy isn't a kindly place...
why rec'd: This is a really enjoyable friendship fic with suspense and action; well-written and with great character voices.
