[livejournal.com profile] ankhsign has uploaded to bunnyfic.com my latest gen Stargate fic. It's a Sam-centric team fic so probably not one for those who don't like Sam Carter.

TITLE: Salt of the Earth
EMAIL: lorigrey@aol.com
CATEGORY: Action/Adventure, Angst.
SPOILERS: Major spoilers for ‘Ascension’, ‘Between Two Fires’ and ‘2001’. Minor Spoilers for other S1-S5 episodes up to ‘2001’.
SEASON / SEQUEL: Season 5, second half. Takes place after ‘2001’.
CONTENT WARNINGS: Torture of member of SG-1. (Sorry, Daniel). Mention of persistent emotional cruelty to member of SG-1. (Not my fault as the show writers did that, not me. I actually like Samantha Carter and would let her keep all her attractive men friends rather than ascending them or murdering them right, left and centre). Mention of previous minor character(s) death(s). Some possible romantic implications in Sam’s feelings for Narim.
SUMMARY: Deeply affected by the events of ‘2001’ and ‘Between Two Fires’, Sam begins to question everything, including her own judgment. When SG-1 find a breakaway community of the Tollan who have apparently sabotaged the crops of the indigenous population Sam is ready to believe the worst. But are her suspicions justified? As Jack and Daniel struggle to escape from a sunken pyramid, Sam and Teal'c must decide whether to believe in the evidence of their own eyes or take a leap of faith in people who have already betrayed them once.
STATUS: Complete

I really like this story, but I've always seen it as a well balanced team-fic, not a Sam-centric fic. Is that me missing something?

I think of it as a Sam-centric team fic because the story starts with Sam and ends with her and she is the one with the ongoing crisis that needs to be resolved during the course of the story - in this case, her feelings about the destruction of Tollana. Although I hope that everyone has something useful to do towards resolving things, she is the one with the story arc in the fic. I'm really glad it seems well balanced to you though. :)

Okay, yes, that makes sense. Were you writing it deliberately that way, or did it just come out?

Yes, very deliberate. It was a response to the first half of S5, where Sam had the Orlin thing, the Narim thing, and the Joe Faxon thing. I kept wanting someone on the team in canon to at least say 'Wow, Sam you're having a really crappy time. Have a cookie' but no one did. So the fic came about in part because of my frustration at the lack of resolution there was about the emotional impact on Sam of those events. But I feel better now. :)
