"This is a fun, lighthearted little vignette that has the AJ we all knew and loved coming up with a rather simple way to get Harm and Mac together."

Aftermath

 

By:  Valerie

  Classification:  JAG story, Adventure, Romance (H/M), Rating: GS, Length: 93,000 words (159 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: Through "Adrift II"

From the Nominations:

"This story fills in many of the details about what happened to Harm in Vietnam.  It also looks at the nature of family and how complicated it can be.  Plus, both Harm and Mac do some soul searching and resolve some of their issues."

And...

"Aftermath is a touching story.  It brings a lot of reality into an unexpected situation.  There is a bond between the characters but it is awkward and unsure and entirely relatable in a way that draws you into the story and leaves you reading well into the night, unable to look away from your computer until you have read every last word."

And...

"Taking off on Harm's backstory, this is quite possibly the most intelligent, adult portrayal of Harm in fan fiction. Truly moving with its depiction of his relationships with others and how they are affected by his early experiences."

And...

"This story helps Harm grow in maturity.  It also explains why he defends the innocent over his own well being, and sometimes puts himself in danger.  There is action, and there is also open honesty about Harm returning to flying, and as always there are Harm and Mac shipper moments in here.  Very good read, and I think you all will love it."

And...

"This story delves into the past of Harmon Rabb, explaining why he is the way he is with a great deal of depth.  It also goes into why Sarah MacKenzie reacts to him the way she does. While starting with a theme which has been done before by many others, this takes an adult view of these two people and how both of them, through the love of an adult child, struggles to mature and be worthy of the love of the other.  I consider it an honor to nominate it."

"I believe it's the best Harm & Mac fiction ever written.  Absolutely perfect:  romance, humor, action, passion.  The way it should have been on screen."

All Through the House

 

By: Soleil

 

Classification: Romance, Some Angst (H/M), Rating: GS, Length: 19,000 words (44 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: Through Season 9

From the nominations:

"Beautifully written with lovely imagery. The author uses language well.  The cliché of painting pictures with words applies here. There have been lots of 'baby deal' stories and I have enjoyed many but this one stands out, partly because of the optimistic beginning that says the problems have been worked out and partly because of the well done use of flashbacks. Humor is used well and the zigs and zags our heroes take are plausible and in character."

And...

"I don't know whether it was the way she described everything so I could picture it like I was inside the story, the way the characters were so believable or the way the storyline switched between the present and the future. I knew that the story would end a certain way, but I was all the more interested in seeing how they (the characters) got there, especially when it seemed like they never would. It made my heart ache and bubble over with joy."

From the Nomination:

"I thought that the behavior of some characters at the end of season eight and through season nine was deplorable.  This story shows how important Harm is to JAG, and how the characters should have reciprocated his loyalty and friendship.  This is a great fic, and stick with it until the end.  All ends well, I assure you!"

The Circle Game

 

By:  Sooz

 

Classification: Adventure, Romance (H/M), Rating: SLSV, Length: 30,000 words (79 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: Through Season 7

From the Nomination:

"This story deals with a disturbing subject (child abuse) and addresses some of Mac's issues from her childhood.  Aside from Sooz's usual amazing writing, the story throws a couple of twists and turns that are not only completely unexpected, but make the story so compelling.  It's not a "typical" story, but still very satisfying."

Clearing Skies

 

By:  Aerogirl

Classification: Crossover (West Wing), Romance (H/M) Rating:  IM15, Length: 30,000 words (83 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: For The West Wing: “Two Cathedrals,” “The Indians in the Lobby,” “Posse Comitatus” for JAG: “Contemptuous Words,” “Boomerang,” “Enemy Below”

From the Nomination:

"This is a realistic combination of two great shows - JAG and The West Wing. Harm really could advise the President's Press Secretary on ramifications of US policy, and the sparks that fly - in all directions - are in keeping with the characters on both shows.  It gives Harm flying time, with angst to go with it.  And it's ultimately a shipper story, with an interesting possibility along the way!"

And...

"This talented author has successfully produced a crossover of two of my favorite shows - JAG and West Wing.  Much of the story is about the growing friendship between Harm and C.J. Cregg, two people with very different backgrounds and political views learning to understand the other's world.  The story also includes some romance and some suspenseful action."

Collateral Damage

 

By:  Aerogirl and Daenar

 

Classification:  Drama, Romance (H/M)  Rating: GS, Length: 41,000 words (102 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: Through Mid Season 8.

From the nomination:

This is one of the best JAG stories I have ever read (and I've read a lot of them!).  "Collateral Damage" is a great blend of action, drama, and enough romance to keep the Harm/Mac shippers (like me) happy.  It is well written, accurate, and the characterization is excellent.

Couples Therapy

By:  CharS

Classification: Angst, humor and romance (H/M) eventually, Rating: IM15, Length: 91,000 words (201 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: Up to and including “Ready or Not”

From the Nomination:

"I thought that the behavior of some characters at the end of season eight and through season nine was deplorable.  This story shows how important Harm is to JAG, and how the characters should have reciprocated his loyalty and friendship.  This is a great fic, and stick with it until the end.  All ends well, I assure you!"

And...

"CharS has given us a story that plumbs the complexities of the personalities known as Harmon Rabb and Sarah MacKenzie.  Because they can no longer interact civilly in the workplace, the Admiral forces them into couples therapy to solve their problems with the help of a psychologist.  Through sessions that begin with insults and bitterness and more through painful memories and battles for both, Mac and Harm finally come to understand and accept their actions, needs, and feelings for each other.  This is a fascinating, moving, and beautiful story.  I believe the true test of a good story is the desire to reread it.  I have read "Couples Therapy" four times and would happily reread it tomorrow."

And...

"This story allows Harm and Mac to deal with many of their issues.  Partly told through the eyes of an amusing shrink, it is full of laughter and love."

A Daisy for Harm

Classification: Romance (H/M),  Rating:  CF, Length: 33,000 words (75 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: None

From the Nomination:

"When this story came out, I know it touched a lot of hearts.  The feedback that was posted to the list came from women who had adopted children.  This was totally a different kind of story from what Kim usually turns out and I'm so glad she did.  This was a sensitive, heartwarming story about a little girl who managed to wrap Harm around her finger."

From the Nomination:

"I think this story is a good combination of sexy and darkness that all has to do with the Harm and Mac dynamic.  It deals with the after effects of Paraguay in an AU sort of way.  But it is a good story that I enjoyed immensely and read over and over.  It just has this dark sexiness that it exudes."

Doing What You Have to Do

 

By:  Witezon

Classification: Adventure, romance (H/M), Rating: GS (language), Length: 34,000 words (94 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: through the beginning of season 7

From the Nomination:

"This is, without a doubt, one of the best JAG stories I have ever read.  It has action, drama, romance... everything you could possibly want and then some."

And...

"A rare fic that shows Mac in a leadership role and not as the victim.  An empowerment to us all."

And...

"This very exciting shipper story grabs the reader's interest with the first line and takes him/her on a rousing, nonstop adventure.  As the senior officer standing after an attack on the carrier USS Enterprise, Mac is thrown into situations never faced by a Marine and a woman.  How she, Harm, and the other sailors and Marines on board battle to get the crippled ship home makes for a rousing tale of courage and romance."

And...

"This story has it all - action, adventure, and romance between Harm and Mac.  It also features one of those rare things - Mac action/heroism in fanfic, and on the show.  It will be worth every minute it takes to read."

From the Nomination:

"A short and funny vignette that showcases Aerogirl's exceptional wit and talent.  I laughed the whole way through this one."

And...

"This story is fluff at its finest, perhaps because it has a tiny bit of actual plot woven into it.  But it's the guffaw-inducing humor that really makes this story shine;  the lines and expressions used by the characters are all realistic and easy to see in the mind's eye.  This is the story I re-read whenever I've had a difficult day... It brings a grin to my face and a song to my heart--a true treasure.  (Warning:  Do NOT attempt to drink a beverage while reading this.  Your keyboard and monitor may not survive.)"

And:

"This story is the one that made me start watching JAG. Ann has a beautiful, wonderful, lyrical style, and the ability to tell a great story. I laughed, I cried, I wish it had really happened this way after Paraguay.  This was written before season nine, so it's current up to that point."

"A beautiful story.  Harm and Mac, in a good place in their relationship, a well-plotted story and fascinating OC character Rachel combine to make this one of AeroGirl's best and most original stories."

And...

"Aerogirl is a very gifted author.  Her stories always are very believable, you could easily believe that they really happened.  She is always true to the context of the characters and of JAG.  This story is set mid season 7.  It was written long before Miss Mattie Grace came into the JAG family.  It is about a little girl whose life is turned upside down, and how the love for this child brings Harm and Mac together.  It is a shipper story, and it is wonderful."

"Of the many, many stories I have read over the years, this story stands out.  The verbal imagery, the feeling of being able to see the landscape of Ireland, feel the wind, smell the food, and hear the laughter of the pubs, al through the words of Lauraloo is something very special, in my humble opinion.  The weaving of the story, of past and present, of real world and of legend and lore, of Harm and Sarah finally figuring it out in a magical yet believable way (that is, if you believe in faeries and spirits!) made this story one to savor and enjoy like hot chocolate and a warm fire.  All I can say is, Well Done, Lauraloo, and Thank you for sharing."

And...

"Wonderful, beautiful, magical, and enchanting are a few words that first come to mind about this story.  Mac goes to Ireland on a journey about her past, and just as she followed Harm to Russia, he follows her to Ireland.  The author has created an intriguing story filled with romance, mystery, and even a little humor.  This is a heartwarming adventure that you will want to read again and again."

Kindness of a Stranger

 

By:  Pixie

Classification: Vignette, Rating: GS, Length: 2,700 words (8 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: Through "Take it Like a Man"

From the Nomination:

"The setup of the story requires a slight suspension of disbelief, but I don't think it was at all a clumsy solution as the author claims but a good response to a very real need.  The show all too often put the characters in dangerous and traumatic situations and then wiped the slate clean immediately or all to quickly in the case of Mac's killing of Sadik.  I think this story does a nice job of filling in at least one of the blanks.  Mac is portrayed believably and the new character, Jim, is introduced and woven quickly into the story.  As a reader, I had to laugh when Mac thought to herself that Jim couldn't possibly understand her situation, but her reaction made perfect sense in the context of the story.  When he reached across and clasped her hand, that was a very touching moment and his responses to Mac's anguish were just wonderful.  And the ending was perfect."

And...

"I rarely read a better character piece than "Kindness of a Stranger."  It absolutely fits Mac's character in all aspects and although it could easily fit with the show, it's something which I missed, and I admire Pixie for her work and her ability to say so much in a few words."

"This one is more of a prequel, but it sets the stage for others of Aerogirl's stories in this archive. It isn't Harm/Mac, but provides interesting insight into Harm's "pre-JAG" life and what shaped him. As always, it is beautifully written."

And ...

"It's not a shipper story. I see it as a pre-Shipper story. Kind of an explanation of Harm's past. This is the story that originated "Law School Andie."

Lessons Learned

 

By:  Aerogirl

Classification: Story, Angst, Romance (H/M)   Rating:  IM15, Length: 16,000 words (39 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: "Goodbyes."

From the Nomination:

"This show takes place early in the JAG series and portrays the characters at their best.  We see relentless, dogged Harm pursuing the truth, Mac at her loyal and professional best, and the admiral, gruff, but stern but trusting of his people.  It's beautifully written, exciting, gut wrenching, and it has one of the most interesting twists on the ferry scene that I've ever read.  It's a story that I re-read often."

And:

"This is a great story wherein a near tragedy brings Mac and Harm together.  Some very good character interaction between Harm and the admiral."

And...

"This story is the final show we should have had.  It ties up all the loose ends and gives us the kind of rousing adventure story we used to get with JAG.  It even made me forgive the admiral (a little), no small feat!"

And...

"The plot is fascinating and uses the author's knowledge of aircraft and military culture well.  We also get a glimpse inside the complicated relationship of Harm and the admiral.  With enough angst to make it believable, but not too much, Harm and Mac get together.  Plus the repeat the scene from Lifeline in a good way!"

"This is an AU story written during season nine.  It is written from a male perspective, is possibly AO, has plenty of angst & received plenty of feedback at ff.net.  It is also a personal favorite of mine.  Hopefully it qualifies."

And...

"Set after the season eight finale, this enthralling, somewhat dark tale gives us an alternate take on season nine and beyond.  RinkRat weaves us a tale that brings us to the edge of our seats and holds us there, seeing what might have happened if the CIA had decided to use all of Harm's talents, not just flying.  It's darker than what we usually see in JAG fanfic, well written, and brought me to tears more than once.  I wish we had more stories this good out there."

One of the very best writers of JAG background story fill is AeroGirl.  Her story, Portraits, expands on young Harm's Vietnam story line. This story is so generally accepted that many JAG fans are hard pressed to distinguish it from an actual scene in the TV series. Honestly, I simply accept it as the correct depiction of events."

From the Nominations:

"This story is what I imagine JAG Episodes would be like if Harm and Mac had ever been allowed to get together.  There is romance, there is angst, there is danger, there is teamwork, and there is humor.  Pretty much everything but a good court scene."

And...

"Valerie is an extraordinarily talented author who brings Harm and Mac to life as living, breathing adults.  This story is based on an original situation with an exciting plot, but it's the portrayal of their relationship that makes it wonderful."

And...

"I almost skipped over this story the first time I came across it because the summary sounded rather cheesy.  I'm so so glad I went ahead and clicked on the link.  I would have missed out on something awesome.  This story is amazingly written, and has one of the sweetest and most creative wedding scenes ever.  Besides the wonderful romance, humor, action, and angst, it has the most entertaining character interaction I've ever read."

And...

"At a time when "reality" shows are crowding the television waves, this story gives a fresh new meaning to how sinister they can be while casting Harmon Rabb and Sarah MacKenzie into the clutches of a madman.  It seems almost comical at first, that these two must pretend to be what they truly are, but we quickly see how this game is ripping them apart revealing the truth of their feelings as they themselves lose sight of what is real, what is truth, and what is trust.  Yet true love does not solve all as they must still "solve the case," maintain their integrity and protect their love from overwhelming temptations and danger.  For all who read this story, get ready for a bumpy but most enjoyable ride."

"This is the best non-shipper story I have ever read.  It makes sense, and actually allows H&M some real closure as Harm goes off to make a life with a law school classmate in the aftermath of Paraguay and the CIA.  Nobody is really the bad guy in the end.  All of the characters are handled sympathetically, but this is really about Harm finding his place in the world after his world falls apart.  I loved it.  Aerogirl does a marvelous job poking around inside Harm's head and in Andie she has fleshed out an original character that seems perfect for Harm."

And...

"Another excellently written story by Aerogirl with great characters (especially Harm!) once again. Even though it's not a H/M, this shipper still likes it with the happy ending for everyone.  I loved the continuation of 'Learning How to Fall' and the different idea for an ending of the H/M saga.  This too is a well deserved nomination."

Sleight of Hand

 

By:  Incatnito

  Classification:  JAG Story, Angst, Drama, Some Violence, Rating: GS, Length: 46,000 words (104 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: Everything up to "Hero Worship."

From the Nomination:

"This is the first in a series of several excellent stories.  The character depiction is dead on and the story line is original and well thought-out.  Highly recommended."

And...

"When I first started reading this story, I thought I was reading a novel written by Tom Clancy set in the JAG universe.  With every chapter you're left wanting more and then it's delivered with a one-two punch! Harm and Mac are written true to their characters, as are A.J., Sturgis, Bud and Harriet.  This story was one incredible ride from start to finish."

And...

"Where to start?  This story has action, intrigue, a hint of romance... the best of everything JAG is.  I love every story in this series, but there's a special place in my heart for the first one. It's Harm and Mac and JAG at their finest."

Storm Over Pensacola

 

By: Pat Steiner

Classification: Angst, Romance (H/M), Rating: GS, Length: 7,800 words (28 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: Any episode may be referenced.

From the Nomination:

"This story is an episode of the 2001 virtual season. Harm and Mac are investigating a case in Pensacola and are making small steps to getting their relationship back on track after the events of Harm's crash and the cancelled wedding. It is in the spirit of earlier seasons of JAG, with Harm and Mac teasing and fighting and not speaking to one another, but ultimately solving the case and coming to an understanding. This very well could have been a real episode of JAG. I love it. "

Switching Tracks

 

By:  LizD

Classification: Angst, Romance (eventually H/M) Rating: GS , Length: 50,000 words (115 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: Alternate Ending to Season Nine – through the death of Sadik.

From the Nomination:

"The story is one of the best character analyses of Harm and Mac  It not only describes in depth the feelings but also explains the underlying reasons for the feelings.  The story is believable, emotionally stirring, and romantic in its own way.  It helps the viewers/readers to understand the complicated relationship between H & M, their love for each other, but also their fear and mental struggling.  The dialogs are very true to the characters and the writing is fantastic.  The story provides an alternate ending to season 9 and its "about right" ending is very touching and heart warming."

From the Nomination:

"I always love Daenar's fanfic, but I love this story in particular.  It puts Harm & Mac in a completely new element and explores facets of their characters that play a large part in their difficulties in becoming a couple.  It also gives great roles to some of the secondary JAG characters."

There But For the Grace

 

By:  Aerogirl

Classification: Vignette, Angst Rating: GS, Length: 6,000 words (14 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: "Salvation."

From the Nomination:

"Honestly, I believe this story is one of the best I've ever read.  There's an important warning at the beginning of the story, but since I didn't know what "Tear Jerker" meant exactly at that time, I didn't know what to expect.  Even if I read it for the umpteenth time, I melt into tears every time.  It's beautifully written, and it's so realistic that my heart breaks, even if I keep reminding myself that I know how it's going to end.  I think love had never been expressed so fervently before."

Classification: Romance (H/M), Rating: GS, Length: 4,000 words (10 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: None

From the Nomination:

"A great not-so-lengthy fanfic that's completely and utterly unforgettable.  Not so much an action fanfic as one of plain and simple H/M romance."

And...

"It's one of those stories that I keep going back to reread.  It's a fun, sexy, romantic story which has a little surprise twist to the ending."

From the Nomination:

"The author has written an exciting and literate story about Mac going back in time to participate in a portion of the Civil War.  It is a strange premise for a JAG story, but Incat has drawn all the threads of the story together to treat the reader to a tale of action, friendship, and romance.  It is as good as any historical novel you might want to read."

And...

"One of the best stories to resolve Paraguay. We see both what Harm and Mac were thinking or not thinking. We see them resolve things. We see Harm and the admiral resolve things. All of this seems real. Plus, a wonderful description of what Mac manages to do to Harm while eating ice cream that is sensual but does not stray into the adults only world."

  Classification:  JAG Story, Adventure, Romance (H/M), Rating: GS, Length: 36,000 words (91 pages in MSWord), Spoilers: "The Prisoner," "Death Watch," and "Answered Prayers."

From the Nomination:

"What if Diane hadn't really died, but had been spirited off on a secret mission?  It might sound far fetched, but in the hands of these talented authors it is an excellent believable story that fills in some of Harm's past and gets him and Mac together."

And...

"Wow, where to begin?  First of all, this is a story that, I think, every shipper has always wondered:  if Diane were still alive, would Harm choose her.. or, would he realize that Mac is the one his heart belongs to?  This fanfiction solves that dilemma, and more. While it is a highly emotional story, it also includes action, as well as humor right at the exact moments it's needed.  Both authors have a very strong feel for the characters, and it shows;  the writing is superb.  A must-read story for every "JAG" fan!"

And...

"This story is a dream come true.  What would happen if Diane came back?  It was a stroke of genius and so well written.  The characterizations were true, and the story was so interesting I couldn't stop until I finished it.  Valerie and Aerogirl together.  Need I say more?"
