Fan Fic: Wizard Force
Wizard Force is a fanfic by James Doyle, a Crossover between Wizards of Waverly Place and Stargate Atlantis, hosted by FanFiction.net.

The story begins when Alex and Justin are recruited into Wizard Force, the ancient but of late largely-ceremonial military arm of the Wizards Council, with the promise of becoming full wizards upon completion of their tour. The story follows them as they participate in the Force's first (and quite possibly last) military engagement in space, in which they must combine with IOA forces (led by Colonel John Sheppard) in order to combat a group of Wraith who have been operating in the service of Ulysses Valenczak, a former member of the Wizards Council now bent on seizing power (both magical and political) for himself.

Will they prevail in spite of things going wrong at every turn? Read and find out.
