Sen. Kinsey tries once more to force the SGC to do something to screw up, and trots out an oft-forgotten piece of technology from the Ancients. Cue SG-1 taking a desperate attempt to activate the quantum mirror. In doing so, SG-1 is taken into the multiverse and to a new level of confusion. The only reasonable solution? Start working together with teams drawn from the multiverse.
A is A is currently ongoing, and takes a heavy dose of SG-1's tendency to subvert, avert, and play with situations and couples it with Fairy Tail, Fullmetal Alchemist, Legend of Korra, Battlefield 2142, Command & Conquer, Overwatch, Equestria Girls, Sailor Moon, and Pumpkin Scissors.
Tropes used in this story:
- Arc Words: "A is A".
- Break the Badass: Natsu finds out that not everyone heals from being burned by dragon fire.
- Combat Pragmatist: SG-1, natch.
- Heteronormative Crusader: Downplayed with "Havoc" Parker. He doesn't outright hate Korra and Asami. He just thinks they don't understand war and that who they are isn't like how he was raised.
- Government Conspiracy: These start to pile up across the multiverse between Stargate, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Pumpkin Scissors.
- Leaning on the Fourth Wall: "Havoc" Parker at the end of Reality has a moment after Korra dresses him down.Parker: Well what do you think?Airman: I just serve the food sir.
- Name's the Same: Havoc and Havoc. So the second is referred to as Parker for the sake of differentiating.
- Obligatory War-Crime Scene: Averted in Apotheosis. The arrival of the Multiversal Task Force in Sarajevo prevents GDI from carrying out the "No Quarter" order on Nod.
- Police are Useless: Lampshaded during Light of the Moon. No one believes that the Japanese government can just ignore what happens when the Sailor Scouts are involved.
- Reality Ensues: Several times through the series, hitting teams in equal measure.
- Fairy's Tail: Dragons aren't immune to blocks of C4.
- Colossal: No one with the slightest aircraft design experience would let the Hummingbird take off.
- Angelos Custos: Bare-chested Australians don't do well against copper-jacketed rounds.
- By the Light of the Moon: Talking and posing don't help in combat.
- Rette Sie: Teenaged girls are not instant combatants, even with magic.
- Lordship: Suddenly realizing you're a killer does not do any favors for your mental health, and gun safety is paramount.
- She's Got Legs: Lampshaded during By the Light of the Moon.O'Neill: So what can we tell about them?Korra: Aside from the fact that they have pretty sweet legs?*O'Neill nearly chokes on breakfast*
- Slap-on-the-Wrist Nuke: Averted: No one wants to fire the ion cannon during the final assault on the Temple of Nod.
- Wham Episode: Apotheosis.Kane: The arrival of this Multiversal Task Force is proof to me that ascension is possible and inspired me to again pick up my own work. Thanks to you, SG-1, I have found my way again.
- What the Hell, Hero?: SG-1 does this to themselves in File Keeping #2. Drugging Natsu to keep him docile during the hearing makes everyone uncomfortable.
- Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Averted in By the Light of the Moon twice. Once on the Sailor Scouts, the second time on Zoisite. Guess who gets the better end of the deal.
- Your Magic's No Good Here: Played with. Magic is able to function across the multiverse, but it's effects can vary. In Apotheosis Mako winds up on the receiving end of this when he tries to firebend away a stream from a Nod flamethrower. He firebends the flames easily, but can't bend the napalm.
