As the World Begins

This started as my Nano project. Since that tanked, I promised that I would finish this and so I am putting what I have up and will be following with more soon I think. So here it is and there will be more. Thank you Keira for the ‘push’ to get this started.

1. When the World Ends

My world , when it ended, ended not with a bang or a whimper, but with a great deal of confusion, miscommunication and a serious case of WTF?

2. Getting Ready to Run

I can only pray, to a God I no longer fully believe in, that those people lived through the Ori bombardment and saved as many people as they possibly could. Because it is hard enough to live with myself knowing how many I saved. There are far more that I left to die.

3. Interlude: Conquered Earth

Stone cold sober, Henry looked insanity in the eye and laid it all on the line, “Madame Orici. I am Henry Hayes, President of the United States of America. I would say that I am pleased to meet you, but that would be an utter lie. What do you want?”

4. Fate Is A Fickle Thing

Have you ever felt the rush of something? Something that feels like destiny, fate, karma? When we found out that there was a problem with Icarus, I just knew. If we saw the people who had been on that base again, they wouldn’t be the same. 

5. Interlude II – Rebellion **

“Laugh it up, bitch. We will get you yet.”

6. Picking Up the Pieces 

The end of my world passed without me really knowing it. I was too young to understand why Dad had me pack up my favorite toys and stuff that day. I was too young to know why my brothers were so grim as they stripped the house of family pictures and knickknacks. I was way too young.

Music I hear when I am writing this:

It’s the End of the World as We Know It By R.E.M

Gladiator Soundtrack – 03 -The Battle

Amazing Grace: The Best of Scottish Pipes and Drums

Winterborn by the Cruxshadows

Iridescent by Linkin Park

This is War: The Avengers by Thirty Seconds To Mars

Sinner’s Prayer by Sully Erna ** This song goes with the interlude. It is what inspired it.


  1. Damn. That is completely FUBAR.

    I am curious though, how did John get tapped by the SGC, yet not go on the Atlantis expedition?

    PS: I’m kinda sad that the characters from Numb3rs aren’t part of the fic. Then again, you have the characters from both NCIS shows & all 3 CSI shows.

  2. Gotta say I like where you’re going with this. Also, I almost choked on my tea as I have a sentinel story in the works with Earth’s destruction (not aliens) and many of the same characters (5-O, CSI-LV, NCIS) and major earth evacuations. My writing is no where near as good as yours but I thought it funny the broad plotline was so similar. Of course, at the rate I write, my story will be done in 2 or 3…or 10 years!! K

  3. Wow. Just finished reading and you gave me goosebumps. I loved it all though I’ll admit to going “Damn she killed Caldwell” when I read the battle. For some reason I like his character. Curious though are we going to see the Numb3rs group or the Criminal Minds people wandering through at all?

    Can’t wait for the next parts. Ria

  4. I love your story, and think one of the the best things about it is the astounding number of characters you’ve convincingly managed to include. The nice thing about the universe you’ve created is that it can pretty much go in any direction, adding in any characters you like. People have mentioned the Criminal Minds crew and Numb3rs; because of the way the story is structured, they could appear at any time. Just because they aren’t a focus doesn’t mean you couldn’t mention a CM character once in a while, or do a drabble about them if you want. The possibilities are endless; I think you’re lucky because I think this is an idea that you’ll be able to put down and revisit as much as you like.

    I *really* like this story! after-the-world-ends stories are an old favourite of mine! the one awaits updates most eagerly indeed! *puts his paws in his sleeves and bows*

  6. I just sat and read this last night. And then sat and reread it this morning. I love the “OMG everything has gone FUBAR” stories and love how you combined the personnel from other shows into the plot. 2 thumbs way up!

  7. I love the story so far, there isn’t a continuation ? this stop at the interlude II, no you can’t do that !

  8. I would love reading more. The idea is great and I think you’ve got the characterization of everybody down amazingly. I looove the Sheppard family.

  9. I love this series. It’s very sad that they had to abandon Earth, but I am loving the story itself. I hope you will be able to publish more. I would love to see how the Sheppard family fits in, especially John.

    I also would love to see how Atlantis the influx and how the new police dept handles things. People will react in different ways. I look forward to reading more of your great series. Thanks for sharing it.


  10. Someone was searching for this series and I’m so glad they were because this is a great premise and really well done!

  11. I don’t know how I missed this, but thank Loki for Evil Author Day! This is terrific. So many characters and so many little quirks that are just intriguing.

    Thank you for writing! This is excellent.

    just reread and enjoyed all over again. one of my favourite postapocalypse SG fics!

  13. Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed this fic – it’s great. If there is ever more to read I’ll be overjoyed!
