For archival purposes, and for those who might be interested, I wanted to mention that a short piece I did for sg1_five_things, Five Times Jack O'Neill Prayed is out.

Title: Five Times Jack O'Neill Prayed
Seasons: Pre-Series to Post-Series
Spoilers: The movie, Solitudes, Cold Lazarus
Warnings: A harsh word. Icky het warning for those who take the icon to heart. Icky slash warning for those who want to read it that way. Icky back-with-Sara warning for the stubborn. Icky non-gen warning for those who want Jack to remain an island, complete unto himself. The tags indicate how I am inclined to take it, but I defend to the death your right to see it through your own pairing goggles.
Synopsis: Please read the title.

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.



Every Gaudy colour
Is a bit of truth.

-Nathalia Crane


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

-Samuel Coleridge
