The Alternative Guide to Stargate Atlantis: Discussion Part III

Conversation seems to have died down, so on to the next step. (If you feel like you're not being given time to participate because of the speed with which this is happening, I'm sorry. I'm trying to maintain momentum here, so once I feel like a consensus has been reached--or as close to a consensus as we're going to get--I move on. But feel free to keep bringing up stuff from previous posts if you feel strongly about it. I haven't even created the community yet, so things can still change. And if you're not on my flist and are having trouble keeping up with the new entries, just track the 'alternative guide to sga' tag.)

First off, I want to clarify the purpose of this project. What I envision is for this project to serve as a guide for people who are interested in a particular character or pairing/poly relationship. A starting point. It's not meant to list every possible fic or fanwork in an area; just to tell people where to start looking. And it's meant to fill a gap. As far as I know, there are no beginner's guides for pairings/poly relationships other than McShep, and I'd really like to see one so that people who are drawn into the fandom by characters like Elizabeth or Teyla have some idea of where to begin, and people who are curious about new pairings/poly relationship have a place to start. We are, as several of you have put it, the non_mcsmooch to the various mcsmooch-type guides out there.

(If you're reading this on DW, I really recommend coming over to LJ for the discussion, because that seems to be where everyone is, and it's easier to keep it in one location.)

The community has been created! Come over to sga_guide and join in the fun there!
