Heinz or Hunts? (turns out he likes mustard as well)

So back in December, tejas wrote a rant on the frequent use of extraneous details of food and kitchenware and generally how incorrect the portion sizes of food are for 6"+ men who live active lifestyles. Well, somewhere down the line hsapiens commented that she really couldn't care less whether Jack preferred Heinz or Hunt's ketchup, and thus this double drabble was born. The rant & thread of comments is listed here.

Asgard Against Voter Suppression

Something I threw together when lokei said she would like to read a fic about "Asgard Against Voter Suppression"... unbeta'd, I'm not sure what I was thinking when I wrote this, but oh well...

“Repeated Alien Abduction Stories Spreading Like Wildfire in Montana CountrysideThe news article caught Teal'c's attention at the local supermarket while shopping with Jack for an upcoming barbeque. To top it off, the author was a regular columnist for his favorite tabloid, The Globe The Jaffa eagerly thrusted the liberated paper onto the motorized belt and proceeded with the checkout, determined to read the article in full on the ride to Jack's house.

“The abduction accounts seem to be identical, which of course raises the credibility in the assertion. According to each of the 87 abductions in the past two weeks, a thin wiry grey alien with large black orbs for eyes encircled the abductee in a bath of white streaming light and they were instantly transported to a large hollow metal ship. According to the victims, the grey alien in question attached electrodes to various body parts and studied a large holographic screen above them.”

"O'Neill, does this passage not sound like the Asgard are behind this?" Teal'c was prone to read aloud many of the stories he read in his tabloids to Jack, who in turn had learned to block out Teal'c's voice with relative ease.

"Huh? What are you talking about big fella? Asgard?" Jack would have snatched the tabloid from the Jaffa's grasp if he hadn't been driving the truck. Or perhaps it was because he knew that the Jaffa would take revenge for this action in their next sparring session.

Teal'c continued reading.Three victims claim that the grey alien used a pearly wireless mouse to use his "computer" and one claimed that it would be worth "quite a bit" at the local pawn shop.” Jack began to wonder just how much an Asgard communications device would be worth.Strangely, none of the accounts include the normal accusations of anal probing or floating in air. Instead the victims unanimously claim that the alien only spoke to them. When asked of what the alien spoke, several victims stated that the alien told them that they must vote in this upcoming November's presidential elections.

"Oh, for crying out loud! Aliens made them vote? What kind of crock is this?"

"Do you not believe O'Neill that a rogue Asgard may be trying to influence the upcoming elections? The Asgard are well aware of our political situation." Teal'c was always quick to believe anything he read in his tabloids.

"T, buddy. You can't honestly believe that an Asgard would be so incredibly bored he'd involve himself in our elections? But, while you're on the topic, I don't suppose your article states who the Asgard are rooting for?" Jack hadn't yet made up his mind for the upcoming election. His absentee ballot was sitting on his kitchen counter, ready to be filled out and sent. If the Asgard do have an opinion, maybe Jack should listen to it. He didn't become a General by ignoring good advice from close allies.

"They do not, O'Neill. It seems that the Asgard in question only wanted the citizens of Montana to vote. Although, the author seems to have more to say on the subject.”

“This author believes there's more to this than meets-the-eye. According to a confidential source at the state election board, all of the abductees had their voting rights stripped from them three weeks ago because of undeliverable mail. When questioned about this, several of the abductees hadn't realized they were no longer registered voters. Obviously, there's intelligent life out there in the sky. And they are not happy about this scandalous attack on democracy!

"You're joking, right? The Asgard are worried about elections in Montana? What, they desperately want someone to win?"

"It does not appear to be the case, O'Neill. It seems that the Asgard are more interested in making sure that this injustice does not go on. Though, I must admit, their peculiar interest in this election is puzzling."

"Teal'c, you don't seriously believe an Asgard is going to waste his time on a single election? Don't they have more important things to do, like fix their cloning problem?" Jack and Teal'c had long parked in Jack's driveway, though the discussion had kept them from getting the melting ice cream out of the truck and into the freezer.

"Indeed they do."

"I can see it right now, Asgard Against Voter Suppression in Montana, all over the headlines." Jack's voice dripped in sarcasm and cynicism. "There is no way, Teal'c, that the Asgard are involved. They don't even have elections, do they?" Jack walked away from the Jaffa, determined not to let the rest of the ice cream melt over a heated discussion of something that was virtually impossible. The Jaffa did not answer O'Neill, but grabbed his tabloid from the front seat and took it inside to read once again.

Meanwhile, far above the green lush lands of Montana, a small cloaked Asgard ship hung in orbit. Forseti pulled up the list of caged voters and made up his list of who to visit this night.

SG Fandom-Jack Alpha Bits

X is for Xerox-Jack Alpha Bits

X is for Xerox: A ficlet written for Jack Alpha Bits ficathon hosted by sg_fignewton for Gen Fic Day, October 27th, 2008!  This short work of fiction is a tag to the episode "Window of Opportunity."

“You wanted to see me, sir?” Jack rapped quietly on General Hammond’s door, waiting for the eventual invitation.  He was still bouncing on his heels in sheer joy for finally being released from the wretched timeloop.  No more Latin, no more convincing everyone they’re not crazy, no more Daniel asking frustrating questions, and thank heavens for no more fruitloops, no matter how much he normally enjoyed them.    

“Yes, Jack, please come in!  Take a seat!”  George was in his normal mood, maybe just a little happier, as far as Jack could tell.  Maybe General Hammond was having a good day.  Jack certainly was having an amazing day.  “I am hoping you might be able to help me out with a mystery, Jack.”

“Oh, and what might this mystery be?”  Jack tilted his head slightly to the side, deep inside he was grinning madly.

“We found these posted in the commissary while you and SG-1 were on P4X-639, along with a betting sheet to which was the better…” George paused momentarily and coughed in modesty, “specimen.”  He tossed over the two black and white photocopies and Jack had to hide the wince of recognition as he took a good and close look at his and Tealc’s unclothed behinds.  It’s a really good thing I removed that platoon tatoo a few years ago.  “Naturally, I cannot condone this sort of behavior by any of the personnel under my command.  We have yet to identify to whom those…” George paused again, “butts belong, but I was hoping you may have noticed in previous timeloops who the perpetrators might be.”

Jack feined looking confused, a skill he had honed and perfected in the past several years.  “I don’t understand, sir.”

George contemplated the colonel for a moment.  “Major Carter informed me that since this action is most likely not a direct effect of the timeloop, it should have occurred in every loop.  As you and Teal’c are the only ones who can remember past timeloops, I was hoping that you might have witnessed who put the pictures up in the commissary.”

“Right!” Jack felt caught in the lie, and was thankful for the way out.  “Sorry, sir, but Teal’c and I were a bit preoccupied with Daniel during each loop learning and remembering the translation of the ruins.  We didn’t see a thing, General.”  Jack gave a smug smile at the answer.

“Very well then, Colonel, I’ll leave you to your mission report!  You’re dismissed!” George smiled at Jack while he gathered together the photocopies off the desk and shoved them in a folder.  Jack smiled back in relief that he had not been caught in the act.  He honestly hadn’t expected the most recent trip to P4X-639 to work and relied on the expectation that his prank would be destroyed with the new timeloop, but at least now he had the very satisfactory answer to the ultimate question as he took one last glance at the betting sheet.

Jack was already half-way out the door when General Hammond stopped him. “By the way, Jack, was it you or Teal’c who broke the glass on the Xerox machine?”

Before he realized the question, Jack answered truthfully. “Teal’c, sir!”

The Weekend at the Library

Author Note:
This story is ideally part four of a outlined 25 part series dubbed so creatively as "The Young Daniel Series." It takes place about eighteen months after the death of Daniel's parents, in November following his ninth birthday. The series is designed to take us through Daniel's life in foster care, from age eight until his emancipation at age sixteen. The series will focus more on Daniel's education and personal development through those years. Each story or set of stories in this series are designed to be individualized vignettes. They blend together in that they frequently refer back to items or people first introduced earlier in the timeline. However, I have started writing the series out of sequence, and so for now new characters or items will be introduced when needed and will be edited back out later as appropriate. A meta on Daniel's development (as I see it) and an outline for the series can be found (as soon as its added) at my personal writing journal at LiveJournal, the community username "quaintdiversion".

(no subject)

Author Note:
This story is ideally part three of a outlined 25 part series dubbed so creatively as "The Young Daniel Series." It takes place just over a year after the death of Daniel's parents, in September following his ninth birthday. This originally was designed to come after “Weekend at the Library” but I then realized that this should come first. I didn’t plan on the two stories being so close to each other, but I have other plans for the first year of school for Daniel, and this just didn’t fit into place.

The series is designed to take us through Daniel's life in foster care, from age eight until his emancipation at age sixteen. The series will focus more on Daniel's education and personal development through those years. Each story or set of stories in this series are designed to be individualized vignettes. They blend together in that they frequently refer back to items or people first introduced earlier in the timeline. However, I have started writing the series out of sequence, and so for now new characters or items will be introduced when needed and will be edited back out later as appropriate.

On another note, only about half the stories in this series will be angsty. Some simply describe his life, the people who care for and about him, and a general picture of how he became who he is. I want to point out how he develops some of his skills and talents, and not always is that from angst and tense situations, as much as I would like to write them! While I certainly don’t expect some of the great reviews I’ve been getting for those types of stories, I do feel that they add to the overall “biography.”

Disclaimer: Don't own Daniel as a character, kinda wish I did. Daniel, Claire, and Melbourne Jackson belong to Gekko, RDA, and a few other really rich people.

The Young Daniel Series

Welcome to the "The Young Daniel Series".  If you're here, chances are you're already a huge Stargate fan and know about what I'm talking.  But some of you may not, and so this introduction assumes little knowledge of the Stargate universe.  

This series is a long trip back into the later childhood of Dr. Daniel Jackson from the unfortunate death of his parents at the age of eight through his emancipation from the foster care system at the age of sixteen.  This is an in-depth character study not only of the child, but the people who were formative in his development to who we have come to know and love through the Stargate series.  This series focuses on the events that influence his personality, his intelligence, and his temperament, and primarily goes through his educational and interpersonal history as he interacts with the community around him.  These are the stories of those who have cared for him from his teachers, his case worker, and the friends he's made along the way.  No man is an island and a community raises a child.  Both are true.

Collapse )  has an amazing series on Stargate Canon, including a very well written piece on Daniel's life before going through the Stargate here.  I have gone through this particular essay several times when developing the basic storyline for my series, and it is to this that I judge my "canonness" to the series.  It has given me some ideas to be different from other stories I've read in the past, and so I must give a shout out and a huge thank you to sg_fignewton for her work on the meta.</div>
