(Yeah, I know, dead comm for sadly cancelled show.) I noticed that some, if not all, of our group collaborations aren't on AO3, and I'd like to change that. (I mean for the ones I worked on, obviously I wouldn't post another group's creations) I would credit and link to all authors/artists.

I won't without approval of individuals involved. But if you use a different name, or aren't in fandom anymore, I'm not sure how to proceed. If you're cool with it, please let me know what your ao3 name is.

We had some great stories and amazing art. They deserve some permanence, don't you think?

Hello everyone,

Since LJ is in the process of purging inactive communities, I'm posting a note to make sure that they won't delete this one and people still have access to the wonderful stories and pieces of art stored here.

SG:A has been off the air for quite a while now and I personally don't feel like putting new challenges in place. However, should one of you still feel up to it, I would gladly give you moderating rights so that you can breathe new life into artword.

( Full image here. )

(Rodney looked nervously at the door. He’d been sitting in the rental car for nearly ten minutes already and he just couldn’t make himself get out and ring the door bell. This was going to go over so badly and there were a lot of things Rodney would rather be doing that afternoon than this.)
