Why This Must Be Read:

In this short fic, Cofax gives us a wonderful look at Sam Carter at the very beginning, freshly back from Chulak after the events of "Children of the Gods," and realizing what becoming a field officer will truly demand. I love early-series SG-1 fics that look at the formation of the team, but this one stands out because it's just Sam, tired, sore, and recalibrating her own standards for herself. Sam's grim struggles with her shoelaces capture the brilliance and determination that make her who she is, at the same time as they invite us to reconsider the episode in terms of her physical experiences. Instant headcanon!

Snippet of fic:

An Air Force captain is fit, strong, always ready for duty. Five times a week, Sam runs five miles. She lifts weights, stretches, takes the occasional aerobics class. She can defend herself hand-to-hand and with a wide array of weapons.

Thank You!

Aquaman by Razzah (almost SFW)

[personal profile] mific posting in [community profile] fanart_recs
Fandom: Aquaman/DCU
Characters: Aquaman
Content Notes/Warnings: bare pecs and a delicious happy trail, so use your judgement about where to open it!
Medium: digital painting
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Razzah on DA
Why this piece is awesome: Almost all the Aquaman art I'll be reccing is from after the current Momoa incarnation came out, but some, like this, date from the casting announcement before we got to see what costume DC were planning. I like the various fusions of old Aquaman details with the artists' imaginations that result, and this is a good example. It's also as hot as hell - wait for the pic to load then click through for the close up - it's worth it! (Those eyes, the pecs, the hairy belly, ulp).

Rec Category: Alternate Universe - specifically, fairy-tale type AUs

Link: Outfoxed on AO3
Why This Must Be Read: This is a charming and engaging story, and what I love most is how wonderfully in-character everyone is, despite the fairy-tale AU format. Rodney, especially, is utterly himself, even transformed into a fox - as the excerpt below shows. A delightful read.

Why this piece is awesome: Because [tumblr.com profile] tcustodisart is THE artist to check out if you're a fan of Mikeyway. Their site is filled to the brims with Mikeyway throughout the MCR eras and beyond.

Deer Eyes is a good example of how well this artist can depict Mikeyway's occasionally haunting yet always sharp gaze. Surrounded by darker hues, your eyes can't help but focus on this Mikeyway: a little awkward and a little friendly. If anything, the doodle style enhances the overall vibe.

Why This Must Be Read: Jack is turned into a dog. This story is just so much fun.

Snippet: “O’Neill will not kill you, Daniel Jackson,” Teal’c said. “He is a dog.” There was that slight deviation in his tone, the one that - accompanied by the subtle twitching of the corners of his mouth - meant he was secretly laughing his ass off. Daniel threw his hands up in the air. “Dogs kill people every single day!”

Why this piece is awesome: for one thing, it follows the red and black aesthetic of the art I recced previously. What really caught my eye about it, though, was that, for a simple portrait of a relaxed-looking Frank, there are certain touchtones. Among those, his penchant for wearing hats and 8948416854 layers of clothing. I also dig the geometric touches that enhance, rather than distract, from the overall piece.

Why this piece is awesome: The artist did review/reaction sketches for many episodes of the show (to find at their Deviantart POI gallery), which were always lots of fun and distinctive in style. I'm linking to this Team Machine picture - done in reaction to the show's PCA win - because it has all of the characters of Team Machine at once, which is pretty rare, and it shows well what's so fun about these little sketches.

Why this piece is awesome: Because it's a sweet/tender moment of kissage between Frank and Gerard that could be set in any AU. I love the nod to Gerard's often quirky shirts as well as Frank's tendency for wearing pants that have ripped knees. #LOL

Also, the palette (lots of reds, black, and greys) falls within the Revenge era aesthetic. And yet, between the gentle lines and the adorability factor of the kiss, what's creepy ends up being quite charming.

Why This Must Be Read: It's a wonderfully done harlequin fic in the Regency style - Rodney makes an amazing Austen heroine, lol. The language and the writing is very true to the period and honestly I just love everything about this fic, I re-read it constantly.

Why this piece is awesome: Because, like the artist said, Ray Toro deffo deserves more fanart, LOL!

One of the things I like about this piece is how kinetic it feels. This is Ray at his happiest: mid-playing his guitar onstage. Another thing I think is cool is how the artist depicted a stage light right behind Ray. Perhaps the artist wanted us to enjoy Ray's curls. Finally, although the majority of the palette come from a darker hue, there is a palpable vibrancy to both the subject (Ray) and the overall mood.
