Science fiction loosely based on the Qeng Ho from Vernor Vinge's "A Deepness in the Sky", about the question of what it's like to work on a ten thousand year old legacy code base.
Mostly slice of life from the perspective of a programmer aboard an interstellar trading ship with little over-arching plot (though that may change over time).

This is a mirror with the canonical version living on my blog, but it's probably much easier to read the archives here.
A different way Death Note could have gone.
Some scenes from an alternate version of Disney's Aladdin.
What if people were good at wishing? The Genie's rules have holes you could drive a herd of camels through, but they don't have to. Aladdin and Jafar's wishes are shallow and limited, and lack the foresight that really effective wishing entails, but wouldn't a battle between effective wishers be much more interesting? And while we're at it, why does Jasmine have so little agency and basically act as a prize to be won in a battle between two men when literally the entire point of her narrative is that she's not that?
Not exactly a complete fanfic, but enough of one that if you've seen the movie you can probably fill in the gaps yourself.
Contains normative advice on the use and binding of Genies.
A member of the Trust interviews a Ba'al clone. Some misconceptions about the nature of the Goa'uld are cleared up.
In an AU where everyone is actually good at their jobs, things turned out a bit differently. Apophis never discovered earth, but ended up at war with them anyway. Fortunately, they found a helpful ally in another system lord, Ba'al, who has taught them that not all Goa'uld are evil and some form a true symbiosis with their host.
Unfortunately, he is now discovering that humanity are not the safest of allies if you don't warn them about the elaborate social rules of the Goa'uld, and that he has been dragged into a war he didn't want to start and cannot possibly hope to win.
Warning: Abandoned fic.
