Summary from the Yadda Press flyer:
Yadda Press is proud to present a uniquely different zine experience :) JD Divas authors PhoenixE, Biblio, babs and Marcia live a double-life: we're also List Moms to the Alpha Gate Yahoo! Group, the best, the most active and the most creative Stargate community online, and not only in our humble opinion :) The Alpha Gate was formed in response to the loss of Daniel Jackson from our beloved SG-1 team, the aim of the community to celebrate the original and best team: Jack, Daniel, Sam and Teal'c. The Alpha Gate basks in the warm waters of DeNile, which ain't just a river in Egypt ;) In those lovely warm waters, we broke out the cocktails and tribbers experienced and virgins, to join with us in producing a zine which would help to support the Alpha Gate's fanfiction archive and secure its long-term future. The theme of the zine is DeNile - literally! We asked contributors to write stories which Make It Write where the episodes went wrong. The result is a dazzling array of slash and gen stories fixing episodes from throughout the seasons. Someone said of fanfiction that it was imagination calling to imagination; in Make It Write, we proudly offer proof of the truth in that. The zine is a celebration of the talent, creativity and friendships in our Alpha Gate community. [1]
Summary from a distributor, Agent With Style:
When Daniel ascended in 'Meridian,' a huge outcry went up in Stargate fandom. How could they essentially kill off one of the most popular characters on the show? Well, what if it never happened? What if a lot of canon things never happened? What if a group of fans decided to write a collection of 'fix-it' stories in which Daniel doesn't ascend, Janet doesn't die, Sam gets a second chance to make a first impression, Jack resolves some issues surrrounding his son Charlie's death, and more? That zine is here! Don't miss these mostly slash stories (3 of the 23 tales are gen) -- you'll be amazed at the fannish ingenuity of these authors. Was it all a virtual reality game? Is Daniel really back or is it just a dream?


  • O'Neill Ascendant by PhoenixE ("Notes: If Jack and Daniel had been allowed to express their true characters within the Abyss scenario, were their actions and reactions to each other not forced to conform to the character distorting requirements of episodic television, then there was only one possible ending for Abyss.
