gen (with just a hint of Jennifer/Rodney UST); PG-13; Jennifer, Teyla, Rodney, OCs; action-adventure; set early S5; ~26,500 words
Summary: On a diplomatic mission, Rodney, Jennifer and Teyla are overnight guests in a cliffside fortress. When darkness falls, an attack leaves Rodney a severely injured prisoner, and Jennifer and Teyla must get him back -- even if it means braving the lethal catacombs beneath the fortress with nothing but a couple of P90s plus wits, skill and luck.
I'd been feeling a little disconnected from SGA lately but this story restored my squee instantly. I love the author's take on the characters. The fic's got all my favorite things: Teyla and Jennifer kick ass (while saving Rodney's) in a gripping underground adventure setting with action, compelling OCs, and a creepy, scary enemy. (If anyone remembers that old C64 computer game "Impossible mission"... there's a scene in the fic that gave me flashbacks to a particularly nerve-wrecking part in that game. /digresses)
