Why This Must Be Read: A classic early team story where someone is hurt and lost and the earnest Captain, the cranky Colonel, and the somewhat confused Jaffa come together to rescue him. Yes, it's the one with the ducks.

You couldn't make it up

Well, you could make it up, but who'd believe you?!

I was watching a show that goes behind the scenes at Paddington Station in London. On the 19th June, one of the hottest days of this year, they were having to slow trains down due to hot tracks that were threatening to buckle. Well, that's understandable. I mean, it's hard to make a track that copes with all extreme weather, after all.

But then, at West Ealing - where most or all trains in/out of London apparently go through - a poor pigeon somehow managed to earth an overhead wire, which sent the current into the steel beams in the reinforced concrete of the bridge above the wire. This resulted in concrete falling onto the track, and the track being closed for somewhere around two hours, whilst they checked if the bridge was safe or not. Fortunately, trains could go through it again, but only at 20mph. It's estimated that the bridge being closed caused 5,193 minutes of delay for passengers, and had a knock on effect for stations as far away as Southampton, Portsmouth, York, Bristol and even as far as Edinburgh!

I mean, of all the things to happen, this has to be amongst the most bizarre reasons for delays, hasn't it?!

I'm afraid the pigeon did not survive :(

Show: SGA

Rec Category: John/Rodney
Characters: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Ronon Dex, Teyla Emmagan
Pairings: John/Rodney
Categories: Slash, Drama
Warnings: None
Author’s Website: Bead on AO3
Link: Freeze

Why This Must Be Read: Rodney tries to talk to John about feelings and John shoves Pegasus-equivalent steak into his mouth to escape. This is just really nicely written from the emotional repression to the emotional conclusion. Love it.

Link: Five Ways Danielle Jackson Met The Others If There Was No Stargate Program on AO3
Why This Must Be Read: This is written in an AU verse [personal profile] ivorygates called the "Dani-verse" in which Danielle Jackson's always been a woman. It's five interesting and different takes on how things might have gone with no Stargate Program - to some degree 5 AUs within the overarching Daniverse AU. Yes, a couple of them are somewhat grim, but they're all really beautifully written, as Dani meets in turn, Sam, Jack, Cam, Teal'c and Janet. I enjoyed them a lot, Dani's nicely sarcastic and snarky, and as [personal profile] ivorygates says, Dani and Janet together are love.

The Knuckleduster Cowtown Creator by Forrest Harris (1999)

I'll give you three guesses which fandom I had started dabbling in when I saw this in a post by an online acquaintance and had to track down (luckily second-hand) for myself :)

Obviously, it was written for RPG enthusiasts to help them create their Old West towns: less for reading, more for reference. All manner of good stuff like the typical businesses in town, floor plans for buildings, goods available in all kinds of stores and suggested prices, typical character types and the jobs they might do, medical skills (and what doctors couldn't do), livery prices, stagecoaches and robberies, morse code and restaurant meals, fancy house euphemisms and gambling games, and of course lists of names (people, horse, stores, towns and so on)... not what an expert on the period might want but for someone who wanted to get their game right, it's wonderful.

And for a humble little fanfic writer who has a complete fascination for domestic detail and wants to get her stories to at least sound right... it's been a treasure :) to the point where I scanned what I found the most valuable bits of the town/character stuff and keep the scans on my hard drive so I can take the information with me wherever I might be scribbling...

Author's Website: See the AO3
Link: Teal'c's Five Favorite Board Games on AO3  (last recc'd 10 years ago so the link needed updating)
Why This Must Be Read:  This is a lovely character study about Teal'c and the SG1 team in its various forms, and an interesting insight into the various games as well. By turns amusing and poignant - delightful.

Note To Self: Do NOT leave the artwork side of your website for three or so years before updating it. It is now a BIG MASSIVE JOB and I've spent the last few days on it and I've NOT FINISHED YET!!!

On the plus side, the Non-Fandom Artwork and Misc Fandom Artwork sections are up to date.

Just, oh, you know, the MASSIVE, HUGE, SCARY White Collar section, the not-quite-as-big-and-scary-but-still-quite-big-and-scary-for-all-that Stargate Atlantis section and the oh-good-that's-not-too-big-and-scary-until-I-look-at-the-all-the-icons The Sentinel sections to do!

So, see you in a few weeks, then?!! :D :D :D

(On another related side of things, it's good that I have the mental energy to do this. It has been rather lacking for some time now, hence way it's gotten so out of date. Maybe once the website updating mania has passed, I'll have the mental energy for other more important things!)

Why This Must Be Read: This is a difficult one to read, but an excellent tag to Shades of Gray from Janet's POV. There's anger. And yelling. And healing. I don't know why it's rated M but there is bad language.
