Summary: Technically, it’s known as Operation Phoenix, but that’s a little too optimistic for Jack, who calls it the WAFGON plan: We’re All Fucked; Get Out Now.

Why You Should Read This: This series starts with the Trust taking over the SGC. In response, Jack sends out as many gate teams as he can, instructing them to try for Atlantis. SG1 is off-world when things come to a head, and thus must make their way to Atlantis with the knowledge that they're leaving Jack - and others, such as Cassie - behind on Earth to face who knows what consequences. Atlantis, meanwhile, must deal with being cut off from Earth and struggle with some pressing question: do they fight to save Earth? How can they rescue more of their people, including the families of those posted to Atlantis?

At the moment, there are 5 complete works in this series. The series itself is listed as incomplete, however. The first installment chronicles SG-1’s journey to Atlantis, as well as how Atlantis has begun to deal with suddenly being an independent colony. John and Rodney’s relationship doesn’t happen until the third installment, so be aware of that, but this fic is so good that I didn't even mind. Very well written, with an excellent focus on a broad cast of characters.
