Recovery by ltlj - I--this is one of those times I just can't figure out what to say about it. It's the sequel to Retrograde, it's this sprawling, beautiful, fantastically written SGA AU. And it's one of those stories I'll carry with me for freaking *ever*, saved in my hard drive, that I'll measure all fic against. It's perfect. It's action and adventure and so much perfect characterization my teeth would hrut if they didn't already for the, yes, dental work I just had. It's just--God. I can't even put it into words. It pissed me off and made me cry and happy and inspired me and I just fell in love with SGA all over again, like I wasn't already its whore, but it's--I'm never going to say this right, okay? I just want to have an icon better than cookies to symbolize *how much* this story rocked.
I'm going to just think how supremely happy, how utterly fulfilled I am, and go with that. I'm *high*. It's wonderful. It's probably the very best fic I've read in this fandom. It's one of the top I've read in any, ever.
Cookies are inadequate, but I'll go with what I have. If I ever make a list of the top ten fics in this fandom that I think everyone should read, and I'm actually pretentious enough to try, this is the first. Well, this and Retrograde together. Yeah. I'm happy.
