With Rosh Hashanah starting Thursday night, I'll be offline until after Yom Kippur, around the start of October. Until then, I wish all of you a year blessed with health, safety, and happiness.

We haven't had one of these in a long time, so...

Welcome to the 23rd SG-1 Alphabet Soup! We've been doing this for ten years now, so some of you are old hands at this, some of you have joined us on a few occasions, and others haven't tried it at all. Veteran cooks and newbie chefs are all cordially invited! We will be celebrating Gen Fic Day on October 23rd and serving up 26 (or more) servings of Alphabet Soup for the occasion.

Not sure what I'm talking about? Browse the Alphabet Soup Index.

The theme for this Soup will be Quantum Mirror. Your story may include any character and any era (pre-series, post-series, early season, late season, whatever), as long as it's gen, related to SG-1, and fits our theme. more details under the cut )

This is how it works: comment below to sign up. By commenting, you are committing yourself to writing at least 100 words of Quantum Mirror gen fic by October 23rd. In the past, signing up included claiming a letter of the alphabet; as we did last time, I will give you a randomly assigned letter. This avoids the problem of simultaneous claims on the different platforms of DW and LJ.

On October 23rd, comment with a link to your fic in the SG-1 Gen Fic Day post, using the title as the subject of your comment (N is for Naquadah, K is for Kree Equals Yoo-hoo, W is for What Just Happened, or whatever). Send me a copy by e-mail and your TOC template as well, as soon as they're ready, even if it's before the 23rd. When all the letters have been submitted, a master post for the anthology will be posted, complete with the detailed table of contents.

For more detailed instructions of the posting process, click here. Even if you've cooked Soup before, please double-check; the detailed instructions have been edited over the years.

There are only four rules: your fic must be at least 100 words, although there is no maximum limit; it must have some connection to the Quantum Mirror, however you choose to interpret the theme; the fic should be canon compliant, although it does not have to reference canon specifically and may be set in pre-series or future eras; and it should be gen. This is part of SG-1 Gen Fic Day, after all. :) You may write about any character, including original ones, that fit these criteria. You may mention canon ships - for example, Teal'c/Drey'auc or Daniel/Sha're, or even Jack/Sam or Sam/Rodney if you are using those canonical AUs - but no romance, please, and no sneaking in references to your favorite non-canon ship. If in doubt, feel free to ask.

Please spread the word - I'm always delighted to have new authors join us (just as I'm ecstatic when loyal regulars join us for yet another round.) Signal boosts are always appreciated! And if you're a newcomer signing up, make sure to mention it so I can welcome you properly. With so many different authors over the years, I tend to lose track...
