    This is a look at Jack O'Neill's younger clone going through military training with all the experience and skill of his older self. It feels a little bit like a Peggy Sue fic, only without the time travel. There are bits of flavour showing the unique situation coming from Jack's Stargate connections, but for the most part we just see somebody hyper-competent dicking around. There are even shitty pranks.

    So, yeah. Nothing too unusual for the Harry Potter fandom, but novel in the setting. The writing was lackluster but not too bad, and I had fun reading this. At a sliver over a hundred thousand words and completed, this was an enjoyable enough read. Pretty accessible to those unfamiliar with Stargate, too.

    3/5

    I read this a long time ago. It’s one of the decent pieces in the Stargate fandom, but isn’t anything really unique.

    Its big and only true selling point is the development of one of Stargate’s awkward leavings. Jack O’Neill is one of my all time favorite characters, so seeing more of him, even by proxy, is fun.

    3/5
