Fic Rec Time!
High Sierra by fajrdrako (Sinclair/Garibaldi, T, warning for alcohol abuse): Sinclair seeks out Garibaldi, helps him sober up, and offers him a job on Babylon 5.
The Subtle Arrangement of Stones by Nemo_the_Everbeing (gen, T): Episode related - what if the Homeguard tried more than once to capture the ambassadors? Nemo’s tag “Cockamamie Rescue” really sums this one up. Probably my favorite B5 fic ever.
Five Things Adam Birkholtz Learns in HDFS 332: Healthy Couple Relationships by EllyAvon (Holster/Ransom, T): Holster learns about healthy relationships while navigating his own healthy relationship with Ransom.
Text Talk by merlywhirls (Sirius/Remus, unrated): Text fic, modern au where Sirius goes to boarding school and Remus is homeschooled.
Mea Culpa by Snooky (gen, G): a little bit meta, intended to address the misogyny in fanfic towards Mrs. Gertrude Linkmeyer. a moving story, serious but excellent.
The Outside Man by Snooky (gen, T, warning for violence): Olsen’s backstory and how he came to be known as “The Outside Man” for Hogan’s operation.
Red vs Blue:
The Whole Damn Sundae by ScribbleTheCalico (Jack/Daniel, M): features ace!Daniel and soft, loving Jack.
the Retrograde series by LtLJ (mostly gen, mostly G): independent!Atlantis and wonderful worldbuilding. go read it.
the Two-Body Problem series by bomberqueen17 (John/Rodney, various ratings from G to E, warnings for violence, rape, and unhealthy coping mechanisms): slow burn retelling of most of the series, missing scenes, features appearances by SG-1, addresses how fucking shitty Lucius was, addresses John’s canon mental health issues better than the actual show. very few mcshep fics do it for me now, but this one is A+.
The Rise and Fall of APUAHTACROFOTS, or, The Legend of the Traveling Lunch Club by schweinsty (background relationships only, T): not-so-subtle Atlantis GSA / QSA has lunch together repeatedly. Definitely read the footnotes!
Brainstormed by Kass & Sihaya Black (beledibabe) (John/Rodney, E): retelling of the episode “Brainstorm” where Rodney invites John to the conference instead of Jennifer. Exactly like the episode, except better. Also there’s sex at the end, but that’s not plot-essential so you can skip that.
Five Bets Sergeant Glicksohn Lost in a Single Afternoon (And One He Always Wins) by Rosie_Rues (gen, T): wonderfully in-character fluff featuring the marines of Sh’quo Company.
