What happens when a galaxy full of [[PuppeteerParasite parasitic slavers]] that [[{{Megalomania}} think they're gods]] comes clashing against a planet full of [[VillainSue hypercompetant]] [[Literature/TheDraka slavers]] who [[Creator/FriedrichNietzsche think they're gods]]? The answer is [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4765465/1/Snakepit_A_Stargate_Draka_crossover Snakepit]], by Dark Schtroumpf, as the [[Series/StargateSG1 Goa'uld]] come head to head with a post-[[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt Final War]] Domination of the Draka.

The entire Stargate universe has been [[ReTool tweaked]] to make it [[DarkerAndEdgier more realistic]], everything from how the Goa'uld's [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien magic/technology shitck]] would [[UnfortunateImplications actually affect their worshipers]] to the now-imperialistic Tollans. In fact, while Earth basically follows Draka canon to the letter, the SG-1 universe is a sort of [[GrittyReboot gritty reboot]].

The story can be found [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4765465/1/Snakepit_A_Stargate_Draka_crossover here]]. There's also a sequel, [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6269501/1/Stars_of_Iron_Snakepit_Vol_2 ''Stars of Iron,'']] in progress. The sequel is also posted (with active discussion) on both [[AlternateHistoryDotCom AH.com]] [[http://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=163699 here]] and on {{Spacebattles}}.com [[http://forums.spacebattles.com/showthread.php?t=168058 here]]. There are also two [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5984950/1/Rebirth_of_the_Janissaries_Snakepit_interlude_1 vignette]] [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5998038/1/Loving_on_the_edge_of_a_bladeSnakepit_interlude_2 interludes]] that take place between the two stories.

!!Examples of tropes in this fanfic:

* AliensSpeakingEnglish: Averted. No one who isn't from Earth speaks English: the Goa'uld language is the galaxy's lingua franca, and even human cultures like the Tollan have their own tongue. Luckily, the Draka [[PhotographicMemory learn quickly]].
* AlternateUniverse: Fairly obviously. There are two separate levels of Alternate Universe going on: for the first level, [[Literature/TheDraka Earth's history,]] which is entirely alternate history, then there is how the SG-1 universe is affected.
* AssholeVictim: [[spoiler: Bar'shan]], eventually.
* BadassBookworm: This universe's version of Daniel Jackson served in the Draka paratroops.
* BlackAndGreyMorality: Frequently pushing into BlackAndBlackMorality.
* CameBackWrong: The Goa'uld sarcophagus, which in canon caused megalomania in humans with repeated use, turns out to have an...interesting effect on ''drakensis'', as [[spoiler: Decurion Rayner]] finds out.
* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Invoked when a Draka tank [[spoiler: kills a Kull warrior with a 120mm tank round straight to the chest.]]
** It's also invoked during Tetrarch Arminius Vohn's [[spoiler: capture of an entire Goa'uld bomber squadron.]]
* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: invoked when [[spoiler: Cenor and Natylis]] have a mutual comfort session with [[spoiler: Decurion Rayner]] in the hot springs.
* CruelMercy: What Chang-Mu does to the villagers who abandoned her instead of outright killing them.
* DarkerAndEdgier: This story ''lives'' in this trope.
* DisproportionateRetribution: When [[spoiler: Bar'shan captures Decurion Rayner]], the Draka [[spoiler: kidnap him, kill all of his men, pillage his base (before [[NukeEm nuking]] it), and use him for medical experiments.]]
* DrillSergeantNasty: Drill Sergeant Hartmann in "Rebirth of the Janissaries."
* [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Dropped An Ancient Superweapon On Them]]: [[spoiler: The Replicators.]]
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: Gwendolyn Ingolfsson unleashes this trope while serving as a liason on a Tollan ship.
* EvilVersusEvil: The Domination vs. the Goa'uld.
* {{Expy}}/NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: An American computer expert named [[{{Microsoft}} ''Stuart'' Gates]] is sighted, having [[TheQuisling accepted Draka citizenship]]. [[TakeThat He likes to sing his own theme song and be told he's "the man" by his serf concubine.]]
* HappinessInSlavery: The Domination's serfs, after they're genetically altered.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Decurion Rayner]] comes to view enslavement of humans as evil, although [[spoiler: she remains loyal to the Draka because they're her people]].
* HotterAndSexier: Remember how the pilot of Series/StargateSG1 had [[NonIndicativeFirstEpisode full-frontal nudity]]? Imagine the whole show had been like that, [[LesYay only]] [[HoYay a]] [[DepravedBisexual lot]] [[FanService more]] [[UpToEleven so]].
* HumanAliens: The Drakensis and their Servus slaves, obviously. The Goa'uld, on the other hand, are just [[PuppeteerParasite aliens in human bodies]].
* IdiotBall: ZigzaggingTrope, both universes had factions who regularly jiggled with it in their backstory. The actual story's characters are usually competent, but more often than not [[OutGambitted their enemies are better.]]
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Karl'ac, the Goa'uld whose desperation ploy unleashed the Draka on the galaxy, with a side order of ButtMonkey.
* MeleeATrois: The Draka and Tollans vs. Anubis and his minions/allies vs. the other System Lords. ''Stars of Iron'' introduces additional factions in the form of [[LaResistance the Tok'Ra]] and [[TheRemnant the crew of the ''New America'']].
* NoTranshumanismAllowed: played straight with the Tollan, averted with the Draka, and subverted with the Gou'ald who are improving their slaves, but not themselves.
* NukeEm: The Draka's reaction to an infiltrating energy lifeform invading their version of the SGC? Stuff a nuke in the gigaton range through the gate.
* PetTheDog: De Polignac's kind treatment of the Tollan captive they rescued.
* PutOnABus: The ''New America'' after [[spoiler: being transported to a distant star system by Loki]], until the sequel.
* ShoutOut: Various, including the Jaffa named [[{{Blackadder}} Bal'dric]].
* StartOfDarkness: [[spoiler: Cenor]] joining in the [[spoiler: rape of captive Goa'uld worshippers]] along with the other recruits in "The New Janissaries."
* SuperSoldier: Where to start? The universe is full of them: on the Goa'uld's side there are Anubis' Kulls and Yu's [[SerialNumbersFiledOff Dragon Guards.]] On the other side, there are the Draka themselves, due to genetic tinkering.
* SuperiorSpecies: The Drakensis like to think of themselves in this way. Considering what they're capable of, it's hard to argue with them.
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: This is the Draka's basic outlook on everything, from combat to spaceship design.
* TheRemnant: "New America," or "The Republic of Samothrace."
* TrainingFromHell: [[spoiler: Cenor and other Tollans]] are put through this by Drill Sergeant Hartmann in the vignette interlude "Rebirth of the Janissaries."
* VillainProtagonist: All the Draka characters, obviously, though some more than others. The most highlighted Draka, [[AristocratsAreEvil Anton de Polignac]], is [[EstablishingCharacterMoment introduced]] capturing an American family, [[ExactWords manipu]][[ILied lating]] the wife into giving up the location of her husband and other members of LaResistance, having her son ''[[GroinAttack castrated]]'' and taking her daughter [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty as a sex slave]].
* WorldOfBadass: Earth is this, as it unleashes both the Draka and Samothrace on an unsuspecting galaxy.
