A New Zine Experience
(Strictly Stargate SG-1, unabashedly slash, exclusively Jack/Daniel)
POINTS OF DEPARTURE
A JACK/DANIEL  SLASH  ANTHOLOGY

Welcome to "Points of Departure", the newest Jack/Daniel slash anthology zine from Yadda Press.  I'm sure you'll recognize many of our very talented contributors and they've pulled out all the stops to bring you some truly amazing tales.  Our 'mission' for this zine was to stretch the creative envelope just a little, write something outside of our usual comfort zone, and I'm sure you'll find the results engaging and thought-provoking.  Be prepared to take some unique journeys and view the characters in ways you maybe have never considered before. 

We have short stories, longer tales and, quite unique to this zine format, four novellas (stories of more than 100 pages in length) by Biblio, Pepe, Kalimyre and Lady Grey.  Coming in at 603 pages, we're around twice as long as the average Stargate novel! We have intriguing alternate universes, drama, pathos, horror, humour and H/C.  Tales that will make you weep, stories that will make you think, and will have you on the edge of your seat with suspense.

Thanks go to Maureen Middleton, Lady Grey and Thalassa for gifting us with some stunning original artwork.

As a special Christmas gift to all of our loyal customers - and a 'golden hello' to our newbies - we're adding the Jack/Daniel themed 2005 Calendar Bundle to your zine package.  Check out the galleries of all the artwork included in your bonus calendar here.

Come depart with us on a journey you won't soon forget!

The Gift by Lady_Grey
Novella, Jack/Daniel.  First Time. Adventure. Angst. Horror. Romance. Spoilers: Stargate, The Movie, Meridian, Fallen.  Season 7 prior to Heroes.
Rating: NC-17
Warnings:  Danny-whumping in the extreme!  
Notes:   This story is quite the “SG-1-steps-into-the-Twilight Zone” kind of fic. It was fun and dark and sexy, and I had a great time writing it. Thanks to my local Stargate buddy for the idea, and to Jude, who had to wade through a subject that normally turns her WAY off, but she found a way to get through it like the trooper she is. Bless you, gal! Thanks for your always-brilliant direction, and making me get it right every time. Quotations from All Quiet on the Western Front, by Erich Maria Remarque
While on a very strange alien world, Daniel begins to change from geek to intergalactic babe, and no one is able to resist him -- not even Jack – but the results are horrifying.

Seize the Day by Biblio
Alternate Universe Novella, Jack/Daniel, AU, First Time, Romance. 
Rating: NC-17
Notes: This story was written in homage to the incomparable author Elizabeth Peters, who took care to write about the partnership of true equals.  Jack and Daniel's ages, nationalities and histories have been altered to suit 1897 but their essential characters I hope remain true to the boys we know and love in SG-1.  Archaeological history is borrowed from Flinders Petrie.
Acknowledgements: My sincere thanks and appreciation to Sally and Marcia for nagging, feedback and contribution of story demands - um - ideas, and to Phee the Alpha Beta :)  The story itself is Marcia's birthday fic.
When a passionate, idealistic young English archaeologist meets his cynical, aggravating American patron, more than cultures clash.

Novella, Jack/Daniel, First Time, Angst, Romance.  Brief Spoilers for The Game Keeper, and a tiny, tiny, blink-and-you'll-miss-it one for Forever in a Day.

Notes:  I don’t know where this came from.  I just know it has taken nearly two years to complete, and would probably never have seen the light of day if not for this zine!  My thanks to Nicci for reading this through for me, and for the support every time I wailed!!!  
Sometimes people aren’t who they seem to be, and an act of passion in the past can lead to a whole new life in the present.
