stories i didn't write

Well, since today's the day my sga_genficathon story would have gone up if I'd written it, I figured I might as well share my various attempts with you. They total 6,500+ words, 8 possible stories, 6 of which I actually started writing. Some of them got ditched because they didn't really fit the prompt (AU, endings and beginnings), some of them required way too much research, some of them just didn't quite work.

There was one story that seemed to be working--I wrote a couple pages in a single sitting, it fit the prompt (well, close enough), everything seemed to be slotting into place--and then I realized that I was about to write John as the Ancients' hitman, and I couldn't do it. And the story refused to go in any other direction, so I had to toss it.

If I had time I'd do a commentary type thing (and go through and add all the italics), but I don't. I will answer questions, though. I'm a little compulsive about responding to peoples' comments.
