Gen Fic Day!

As decreed by sg_fignewton, today is Gen Fic Day. Alas, I became informed of this event far too late to prepare for it properly, so instead of a fic, I bring you a fic rec in keeping with this week's Star Trek kick:

Keeper of the Katra, by Chris Dickenson

It's eighteen years old, but for me, it's the only thing that justifies the existence of The Final Frontier. It is the most fascinating and pitch perfect piece of gen fic I read as a teenager, and believe me when I tell you that it still holds up years later. If you haven't read this novella already, go forth and do so without delay!

ETA: I just realized they're only doing SG1 fics at the above link. But hell, why can't we make this multifandom? There can never be too much gen, says I.


It's my fault for not specifying on the actual post that it's for SG-1!

Thanks for wanting to contribute, and wouldn't it be great to spread the gen glee across fandoms? Gen is the ultimate neutral ground - no hostility due to OTPs, everyone gets a chance to shine, and readers can find all the subtext they want to keep them happy, even if the author didn't actually put it there. Yay for gen! :)
