A Happy Birthday to Sjhw Tolerance (Sue)

My birthday offering for sjhw_tolerance is Intimations of Mortality, here on DW

It's a look at a moment when Sam and Jack face the changes that come to us all, even intergalactic heroes.

Title: Intimations of Mortality
Season: SGU Season 1
Spoilers: There's a line of Jack's from the latest episode of SGU.
Warning: Nekkidness. Intent. PG-13, I'd say.

Oh, wow!! I loved it! When Jack said that line in SGU I so totally was thinking about the same thing: he was definitely thinking of Carter! Awesome!

I like that you address the age/weight issue. It's usually an topic people like to skirt around and I think you handled it very well. Definitely how I would see Sam and Jack deal with it. ::happy sigh::

And Happy Birthday to Sue!!

Yeah, I think there are a lot of people who try not to see the age/weight issue, because we'd all like to continue with the illusion that there is a special breed of people out in teevee-land that are just plain blessed with perfect bodies and who can age gracefully and minimally. It absolves us all of having to work as hard on our own appearance as actors do behind the scenes to maintain that illusion. Yeah, most actors do start out with a bit of a genetic advantage, but maintaining that in view of the merciless youth culture in the entertainment business is brutal, and after the age of 35, requires harder work than most of us are willing to do, even for the genetic lottery winners. Ultimately, no matter what, gravity wins in the end!

Aw, this was so sweet! :D And that line from SGU, I was thinking the SAME THING when Jack said it. He's special 'cuz Carter loves him!/he has Carter! lol.

Oh, I'm pretty sure that every hopeful Sam/Jack shipper who has seen that episode took that line that way!

Yeah, probably! lol. I liked Jack in this "Subversion" a lot more than when he was in "Air," because it felt like he was much more involved. :)

edited...cuz sometimes I forget what I'm talking about. :P

This was awesome. I just loved it. One doesn't often read about Jack facing that kind of insecurity, and I think you wrote it very well. So much love for both of them in this story.

Also, I love your "one treat a day" advice about dieting, which I could really use if I'm going to fit into the wedding dress I already bought. I'm going to try this system and I bet it will help. Thanks!

Glad to have been of help, and just as glad you liked it! ;)

I love this to pieces! I like sneaky Sam in the grocery store, putting all his treats in the cart. It really illustrates how well she knows him, that she can identify every one.

I'm betting that even if she didn't know each one, it would be easy to get the right one. Just go for the high octane +/or kid-approved one!

The one that might require some personal knowledge, I think, is the chocolate milk to go with the Peanut Butter Puffs. He tells Bregman he prefers vanilla to chocolate, but I can't see him passing up a chance to turn his cereal bowl into a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

*g* He's used to having to pack the calories, isn't he? From so long in the field.

A Few Words from the Wise

Speak to him, for there is none born wise.

-The Maxims of Ptahotep

~~~~~~~~~~


In mourning or rejoicing, be not far from me.

- an Ancient Egyptian Love Song

~~~~~~~~~~


But your embraces
alone give life to my heart
may Amun give me what I have found
for all eternity.


-Love Songs of the New Kingdom, Song #2

~~~~~~~~~~


To Know the Dark


To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is travelled by dark feet and dark wings.


-Wendell Berry

~~~~~~~~~~


Up in the morning's no for me,
Up in the morning early;
When a' the hills are covered wi' snaw,
I'm sure it's winter fairly.

-Robert Burns

~~~~~~~~~~


Visit to the Hermit Ts'ui


Moss covered paths between scarlet peonies,
Pale jade mountains fill your rustic windows.
I envy you, drunk with flowers,
Butterflies swirling in your dreams.


-Ch'ien Ch'i

~~~~~~~~~~


Mistress of high achievement, O lady Truth,
do not let my understanding stumble
across some jagged falsehood.


-Pindar

~~~~~~~~~~


Every Gaudy colour
Is a bit of truth.


-Nathalia Crane

~~~~~~~~~~


I counted two-and-twenty stenches,
All well defined, and several stinks.


-Samuel Coleridge
