Reactions and Reviews: Issue 4

[The Long and Winding Yellow Brick Road]: In this lovely gem of a story, Sideburns takes us on a re-write of Season 7 in which Daniel isn’t doing as well as the show portrays him after descension. The places that Ms. Burns takes Daniel just brings a lump to the throat. The extremely angsty first fourth of this story makes the love journey between Jack and Daniel all the more heartwarming in my humble opinion. What I especially loved was the hard time Daniel had reconciling Doctor Daniel Jackson and just plain old Daniel. When Daniel broke the mirror and trashed his apartment, I had tears streaming down my cheeks. Just very angsty stuff!! And yet, by the end, the reader has a sense that Daniel’s found a balance with Jack’s and his friend’s help. [1]
