Summary: And here they stood, in the ruins of the world they’d fought ten long years to protect, the war lost before they even knew it had begun.
Fandom: Stargate SG-1
Awesome Woman: Samantha Carter
This series is one of the best Sam-centric series I've ever read. It starts with an apocalypse, and it goes on from there. Sam is beaten, tortured, loses her friends, her team, her world, and at one point, even her sanity, but she survives it all. She walks through the fire so many times, and at the end, what is left is a core of pure Sam Carter--brilliant, loyal, determined, and ruthless.
