How to Find Stuff in SGA Fandom [Jul. 14th, 2007|04:18 pm]
The Rec Room


[Tags|, , , , ]

New convert to the shiny goodness of SGA, ascetic_hedony, asked for links to the good stuff. And lo, it is done.

The Newsletters/Announcement Communities:

SGA Newbie Guide on newbieguide -- so many links, so little time.

sga_newsletter -- lists everything of relevance posted each day.
sga_noticeboard -- general announcements of fic, new comms, challenges, etc.

sgastoryfinders -- where people request lost stories, but it also works as a rec comm.
sga_flashfic -- a prolific challenge community.

atlantis_vids -- for your song-vidding needs.
the_kawoosher and the Kawoosh! Website -- SG-1 and SGA songvids.


Cathy's Recs:

Primer for Reading SGA Fanfic by cupidsbow -- Lots of gen as well as McShep, plus links to other resources.

I've just done major work on my rec site, and it's now much easier to filter for Stargate stories and songvids. You can access it three ways:

The del.icio.us feed is new, so older recs are archived in the LJ's Memories (and here's Stargate, with 806 recs).

Other Recs:

I've tried to focus on the reccers who don't just have McKay/Sheppard (for McShep, look in rec_room).

Ronon and Ford

Other Suggested Links

Happy reading!

Heya! I'm still in the process of tidying up, but these pages are mostly finished on my new domain:


So if you wouldn't mind changing those links, I'd appreciate it. *g* (It's for the good of the fandom! The crackpipes are up on this one; they really add a special little something.)

Done! Thanks for the heads-up. The crackpipes really do add a special something :)

The new version of the resource post is awesome. *goes off to poke at links*

There's also many people mainting thematic lists, I think it's lothy who keeps a list of all SGA and SG-1 thematic lists here:
and many can be found at stargate_search:

Thanks for doing this!

I can add a few more:

The Newsletters/Announcement Communities:
http://community.livejournal.com/sgagenrefinders - Whereas storyfinders are for specific stories, this comm lets you look for genres, such as Ronon angst, etc.

http://www.fanfiction.net/tv/Stargate_Atlantis/ - gen, het and slash stories
http://www.jumperbay.com/ - gen only stories
http://sga.fictionresource.com/ - Crossroads - slash stories
http://sg-atlantis.org/fanfics/index.php - Atlantica - gen, het and slash stories

Brilliant! I needed the gen and het links especially (as that's not where I hang out). The only one I didn't add was Crossroads, as it wouldn't load for me. I'll check back later, and if it's working, I'll add it in.

Thank you.

Maybe you could add lj user="sgagenrefinder"> to the list? Great place to find fics in a certain genre.
