Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here:

These are recommendations made by Tropers for The Sentinel, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be Zapped. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.


Do warn when a fanfic may head into non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

Lady Ra's stuff

  • Recommended by Pitac 89
  • Comments: Lady Ra is very prolific, and fond of crossovers with various other series that actually work. All her work is slash, but that's not too surprising in The Sentinel fandom.

The Sentinel Slash Virtual Season

  • Recommened by Pitac 89
  • Comments: I never quite got to the end, but the stories run for about two and a half seasons, much like the series. It features the Jim/Blair pairing and the occasional crossover with other nineties shows. Also there's a three parter about the return of Alex Barnes.


  • recommended by Olive The Breloom, SMARTALIENQT
  • Status: Dormant
  • Summary: A crossover with BBC's Sherlock.
  • Comments: Very well written and perfectly characterized, you will feel bad for John by the end of chapter 10.
    • Seconded, though let it be known that it hasn't been updated in months.
      • Should be noted that Chameleon hasn't updated since 2012. The 14 extant chapters are still worth a read.

Waiting by PJ

  • Summary: Blair waits.
  • Comments: Oh the angst. Jim apparently dies and Carolyn is pissed that everyone treats Blair like Jim's widow rather than her. That doesn't make things easy on Blair. Happy ending.

Dark, Still Water by litgal

  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: When one of Daniel Jackson's friends goes snooping into the wrong computer, the SG-1 team comes to Cascade to find her before the NID can. But the local detective assigned to assist them—and his very strange anthropologist partner—complicate things.
  • Pairing: Jim/Blair if you squint hard, but nothing blatant.
  • Tags:
  • "Comments": A good, hard look at both Jim and Blair's trust issues. It takes place in early Season 4, when both are still recovering from the absolute clusterfuck of Blair discovering a second Sentinel, so Jim doesn't come off that well in early chapters.


How well does it match the trope?
