RR -- Epic McShep

Going through my memories, I've noticed that SGA, which was supposed to be one of the major fandoms of this comm, has fewer recs than Smallville (*Smallville*!)  Worse, most of the SGA fics that are recced aren't even epic in length.  Unfortunately, the problem seems to lie in the fact that my pool of epic length SGA fics is very small, primarily because folks in SGA don't archive very often (not that I can say anything, as Proposition and Push/Pull *still* aren't archived, *sigh*).  What's more frustrating is the fact that I know there are epic length (250K+) SGA stories out there, I just can't find them.

Which is where you come in:)

Things to keep in mind:
-Recced stories can be any length, any fandom, and any pairing, as long as they fit the theme
-You don't need to write a review (unless you want to).  All that you need to include are title, author, and link to the story (all parts if there are more than one).

That said, have at it!

-Crime Procedurals (anyone posting Bones (Boothe/Bones) or Monk (Stottlemeyer/Disher) fic gets a rec in any fandom of their choice, even if I have to acquaint myself with the fandom first)
-Due South fic (F/V would be a bonus, as I haven't read any before)

I'm pretty sure I did read these -- is this the series where Atlantis seceded from Earth once they found out that the artificial gene killed anyone who went away from Atlantis for too long?

Thanks for the recs!

No, that sounds like one of mardahin's series -- not sure which one, though.

In mrshamill's stories, the Ori kick Earth's ass (which is why Atlantis can't contact the SGC), then the Daedalus shows up at Atlantis with a load of refugees, and Atlantis has to figure out how -- or whether -- to integrate them into their society, how to fight back against the Ori, and still deal with the Wraith. (Hence the high angst levels. :-) They're well worth reading.

Wow, I *don't* think I've read that one. Dude, that makes my day! Thanks:)
