Welcome: This continuation of Mathématique in the form of a low-key, low-fi, bare bones blog is about sharing what I have with the small nexus of people that want it. The “original” Maths [which was pulled down from AO3 in the Beforetimes] will remain on cleanwhiteroom.net. Let’s keep it chill, kids. It’s quiet. It’s night. Let’s gather ‘round the fire for an Aftertimes epic.
Unhelpful summary of Maths: The skies call to us.
Notes about the story: Mathématique is a transformative work, meaning it’s “fan fiction,” much like The Divine Comedy, Romeo and Juliet, or anything you’ll find on AO3. It’s an epic-length, crossover AU that spans all three series of Stargate. Timelines have been altered so that season 4-5 of Stargate Atlantis (without Carter in command) occurs contemporaneously to season 10 of SG-1, which occurs in the year prior to season 1 of SGU. Please don't repost to other sites, but it’s okay to link to this site. One day, I, personally, may repost this on AO3. It depends on how the mists of time clear, kids.
Notes about the series: Mathématique is part of the Multiverse Triptych, which also includes Force over Distance and Ad Noctum. Force over Distance is meant to be read first. Mathématique and Ad Noctum can be read in any order or together.
Warnings: Rated R [movies]. Rated M [video games and AO3]. This one contains grief and mnemonic peril. Dramatic tension is created by the question of whether the self persists in the absence of personal memory. Characters confront amnesia, brainwashing, betrayal, and abandonment. Reading is a serious undertaking. Steer clear if you have concerns.
Where was this for a decade?: Sorry kids. I had to walk a little further into the fog. And, to do it, I had to take everything with me. But, in your absence, the Misted City has elaborated itself. The pathway begins to clear.
This is fiction: I love science fiction, because we can discuss what hurts us with a degree of remove. No starship will fall in love with you. You’ll never hear the symphonic lament of a dead city. And yet, as you live, you may be forced to change in ways you’d rather not. You may have a panic attack. You may be betrayed. Someone may hurt you. You may contract a disease. Your neurochemistry may turn the wrong way for no reason. To quote Blaise Pascal, during such times, you may need to carry something beautiful in your heart. That’s what I try to write about. Not sure I succeed, but that’s the aim.
Relationships: Daniel/Vala. And, finally planting the flag…Rush/Sheppard/Young.
Permissions: Anything done with love and attribution is okay by me: translations, art, commentary, remixes, playlists, podcasts, changes in energy, transpositions, the years-long work of ghostly archivists…
