The Alien Lover by Peet4paint

'They looked so different from Laliari's people, with only two tentacles and such terribly long mandibles.' Interesting alien point of view, with serious insight into body dysphoria interlaced with broad humour

Episode Thirty-Three: 'The Dark Reflection' by Lizardbeth

'"Don. I'm not saying Evil Tawny needs to dress like a nun, okay? You want a little T and A, I'm okay with that. I don't eat lettuce and oranges because I like them, after all; I have to avoid the craft table so I don't look like a hippo on camera."' Galaxy Quest fanfiction, like the show, has a tendency to short-change Gwen, so it's nice to see her getting a chance to be awesome for once

SMOF by Hollimichele

'I’m a n00b, by Quest standards--started watching with the New Adventures, right as LJ was taking off.' An exploration of what GQ fandom might be like, which turns into an affectionate portrait of fandom itself. Great fun!
