55.3. Make a list of laws you'd like to change.

[locked from the brass at the SGC]

1. Don't Ask, Don't Tell
2. Prop 8
3. Every other small-minded, bigoted, nosy damned law that people shouldn't give a good goddamn about because it's about what two people do in the privacy of their own homes and what the HELL is wrong with two people who love each other being together when there's all this hurt in the world, anyway?

  • I've already seen my 'dream home' and apparently there's a pineapple
  • and a fridge full of beer
  • and some funky sculptures
  • and video games

  • and the games
  • and maybe even the pineapple
  • but I think I'd add a huge DVD collection of cool movies and tv shows (Yes, Rodney, including Star Trek TOS)
  • and a big comfy bed. A sturdy, big, comfy bed.
  • and [I can't tell you] there to share it with

SGC Requisition Request , Form PGE-0213a, filed August 2008
100 cases ammo, standard
10 cases coffee, ground, dark roast

5 packs 3-count underwear, charcoal grey, boxer-brief
5 packs 3-count socks, charcoal grey or black

15.4. Favourite foods and drinks

*Turkey sandwich -- mmmm
*That roast fowl dish the Athosians make -- it's got the best combination of spices
*Pot roast with potatoes and carrots and celery
*One of those fruity drinks -- dunno what it's called. Rum, pineapple, some other fruit juices, fresh pineapple slice -- they're really tasty and pack one hell of a punch. We had them in Antarctica when we had our 'let's pretend it isn't negative fucking 80 degrees outside' party.
*Beer
*Coffee
*Popcorn
*Pizza

Sweatband
Watch
Radio
P-90
Sidearm
Backup sidearm

Ancient life-signs detector
My team

13.2. Make a list of things you always forget when you go out.

That we shouldn't let Rodney play with the Ancient labs we find
That we should be really freaking careful with the stuff that looks neat and shiny -- it always bites us in the ass
That 'extra ammo' is never enough
That no matter how careful we are, we're gonna end up pissing someone off and causing an 'incident'

12. 1. A list of things you'll never do again.

1. Wake up an entire species of life-sucking aliens and completely upset the ecosystem of an entire galaxy
2. Piss off psychotic militaristic fake space-Amish leaders
3. Leave the (also psychotic) black ops leader of same alone with Rodney. Ever.
4. Leave enzyme-hopped ex-teammembers or their thugs alone with Rodney.
5. Leave supposedly friendly aliens alone with Rodney (seeing a theme here?).
6. Think that 'I want to experiment on [fill in the blank]' might actually be a good plan.
7. Play with *shudder* bugs.
8. Think it's a good idea to sic the Ancients' failed nanite-based anti-Wraith weapon on said Wraith, especially when the nanite-based weapon freely interprets 'kill all the Wraith' as 'kill off their food source (humans!) so the Wraith starve to death'
9. Let Rodney play with failed Ancient experiments (sort of related to 8 above)
10. Let Rodney think he's smarter than the Ancients. Even if he might be. Sometimes.
11. Let Rodney know I said 10.
12. Let Rodney play with genetic-enhancing Ancient artifacts.
13. Look at semi-medieval societies and think they're 'cute'. Damned brat...
14. Think 'it's just a game' when it comes to some weird piece of Ancient tech. Oops.
15. Touch the pretty shiny crystal things that want me to touch them. Oops again.
16. Go back to the planet with the pretty shiny crystal things, because there are WAY too many of 'em.

Y'know, somehow I think this list is just gonna get longer every time we go on a mission. Seems to be the way things work out. I'm starting to think I should get a desk job... Except then who'd keep Rodney from blowing up solar systems?

6.1. Make a list of everyone you've ever slept with.

I'm just gonna use first names to keep at least some semblance of decency here. And did anyone ever notice that just by not telling someone something you're telling them something? Damn...

1. Carolyn -- lost my virginity in the back of her car after we won a race. Don't ask. It's that whole speed thing...
2. [I can't tell you] -- motorcycles are cool, too
3. [I can't tell you, again] -- surviving imminent death will do that to you sometimes
4. Nancy -- my ex-wife, before we were exes, obviously
5. Katia -- it's damned cold in Antarctica. Definitely something to be said for that whole sharing body heat thing.
6. [I really can't tell you] -- definitely not a one-time thing. *grins*
7. Chaya -- well, I think we did. It was glowy and I felt really good, but I'm not all that sure there was physical contact. I dunno what it counts as! 6 got pretty jealous, though...
8. [wouldn't tell you this one even if I could -- I don't want 6 knowing about it, there would be too much worry and fussing] -- wasn't exactly my choice, either.
9. Teer -- I was trapped there for months, and she was very friendly and nice. What was I supposed to do?!
10. [again, not telling] -- and I'm really not sure what it counts as, because it wasn't even real; all in my head, that kind of thing. And no, 6 doesn't know about it either. I think. I hope.

8. Spider Man 1 & 2
9. X-Men 2
10. The Matrix (the first one -- I'll watch the other ones because of the effects, but they're not as cool.)

9.1. A list of things that make you feel better when you are sick/hungover/depressed.

We'll go with sick or depressed. I haven't been hungover in a bit. Well, there was that one time on that planet after the harvest ceremony, but... yeah. We'll go with sick or depressed.

1. Hanging out with my team (not so good when sick, because oh my god Rodney is the worst hypochondriac...)
2. My extra warm blanket and the squishy pillow I got from that planet with the huge bazaar (yes, I know. I get cold and I like my comfort, okay?)
3. Thick woolly socks
4. Soft fuzzy robe
5. Hot tea (if I'm sick) or hot coffee (if I'm depressed)

This isn't the way it's supposed to go -- he's young and vibrant, he isn't supposed to feel all these aches and pains like a man twice -- almost three times -- his age. But he does -- he can feel the pain and weakness growing, all of his life fleeing his body, flowing right out of him like water down a drain.

The Wraith's hand on his chest is frighteningly solid and real, and he could swear he can feel his life force bright and hot as it's pulled out of him, as it flows into the Wraith and makes the alien more and more powerful.

His body aches. His chest burns with the attempt to draw in enough air, his heart labours to push his blood through his body. His hips and oh god his knees, and damn that shoulder's a bad one too. He can feel his fingers twisting and contorting, pain throbbing through every joint. Something in his jaw blossoms into a hard cold pain, and he's sure now that he's made the biggest mistake of his life.

And then the Wraith pulls back, leaves him wheezing on the ground, every breath a labour of pain and will, and a part of him realizes death in battle or even Ascension would be preferable to living with this. The rational part of his mind that can think past the pain tells him the natural process isn't this horrible -- that it's the accelerated version of aging caused by the Wraith's draining that makes the pain so acute. The rest of him can only lie there and wish the Wraith had finished the job. He can't survive like this...

He's almost, but not quite completely given up hope when he hears soft footsteps returning. He's almost dead already, and there is no way he can escape. This is the end -- and then there's a startlingly warm hand planted in the middle of his chest and heat and life floods back into him. The Wraith kept his word, and came back, and he's giving it all back to him -- and then some. This is a new ache, but it's a glorious one as all of the pain fades and he can feel his body young and healthy and strong once more.

This time, the ache is more in his heart, because the Wraith has proven himself honourable, and he can't help wonder just how much different things would have been if they'd ever bothered to talk in the first place...
