Hokay, campers, this one has been sitting on my hard drive for quite some time. The first and final lines of the snippet under the cut are what arrived first in my strange little brain, and try as I might to scrub them away, it appears they are indelible. At first it all came to me in 1st person, Daniel POV, but it's in 3rd person now. I do have a couple of scenes following this one written as well, but this story is such an early WIP that I'm not sure it deserves that title yet.
You would think I have some clue as to why Jack says the final line in this scene, but no . . . I have thought and thought, and have a few ideas, but I encourage you to speculate. Feel free to send your other SG-1 friends by to speculate as well. Hell, if anyone's interested in turning this into a round robin, I'm game. Just help me get this thing out of my brain!
