Pick a Fic  
I'm very indecisive. I can never settle on one thing. I have tons of fanfic to finish for SG-1, short and long, so I'll leave it open to you. For my longer fics, which fic do you think I should finish first?


Poll #908850 Which Long Fanfic Should I Write Next?

Which Fic?

First Encounters (SG-1 travel back to movie era Stargate to stop an assasin from murdering Daniel)
13(36.1%)
Ghosts in the Machine(SG-1/SGA crossover--investigating "ghosts")
4(11.1%)
Partitions (Mayan fic where SG-1 search for Nick)
2(5.6%)
Unspoken (S1 team builder--Jack incapacitated; the rest work together to save him)
4(11.1%)
Paranoia (S10--the team suffers paranoia and turn on each other)
13(36.1%)


There's no guarentee I'll write the one that gets the most hits. I've done this before and I wrote the one that didn't really grab anyone. That turned into A Priori. But, hey. You never know. Anything to nudge me in the right direction. I'll work on the short fics in between. And they are all team fics.

Now, back to the original short story I'm working on. Yay for writing :)

Hope you don't mind me butting in here a moment.

You know, I picked First Encounters because I like glimpses of their earlier selves but if it's more comedic, I'll probably go for Paranoia (which was tied with First Encounters anyway) mainly because I've been more into darker stories lately. Though of course I'd like to see both. ;) Out of curiosity, were you planning on including Jack somehow in Paranoia? I'll read it either way but I was just wondering.

None of them are shippy. All gen. If people see ship, that's up to them.

I've actually been looking for more gen stories because I tend to read slash mostly (particularly J/D) and I wanted to start checking out some more gen. However, I'm having some trouble because I keep running into what are labeled gen but actually have obvious J/S or D/V references and those are two ships that I don't want to see either on the show or in fanfic and outright references to them in a gen fic throw me right out of the story. So I've been very cautious lately when looking into gen but I trust you so I'm looking forward to your fics.

Oh thank you. It's nice to hear that many people trust that I'll stick to my word on a story.

Yeah, to tell you the truth, First Encounters is more on the comedic spectrum. It's one of those stories that has a serious issue (assassination) but it comes off sort of light and funny at first and then grows more serious as the story progresses. It's just the way this story decided to be told.

Paranoia by nature would be darker, more dramatic with light moments. Since I'm a classic team nut, I always manage to sneak Jack into any later season stories. With the crossover fic, he has a very small part. But in Paranoia, he has a decent part that I've planned so far. I like to start things off in the middle of things, so he's right in the action of the opening scene. Hopefully, it will come off as well as I hope it will.

I hope I didn't come across as rude or anything when I said that (like hopefully I didn't accidently imply that you wouldn't stick to your word otherwise because I definitely didn't mean it that way). I think it's hard sometimes because a lot of people have different ideas of what "gen" means and it's kind of comforting to know how an author feels about it before getting into a story. I don't really blame people when they let ship (or slash) preferences slip into their gen fic because I can understand that it can't always be helped, it's just not something that works for me personally so I tend to like being warned first at least.

I've really been enjoying your fics which I've just been getting a chance to read and these all sound like great ideas. I'll look forward to seeing them.

No, no offense taken. Everyone defines gen differently. So it makes sense :)
