SG-1 Drabbles  
Well, as I suspected, charloft's 100 Drabbles of Summer fell victim to the two big bangs I was working on. But I still have a few more that I've finished over the past few weeks. Basically rated Teen and Up.

Prompt table located here.


Prompt 15: school (Gen), episode tag for Fragile Balance, Clone!Jack

Don't Look Back

Jack left school without looking back, knowing he wouldn't return. He’d been optimistic, at best, to think that he could play at being a normal teenager. Batshit insane was much more accurate.

High school was all the worst parts of his (former) job with none of the perks. He had nothing in common with the kids, and more life experience than all of the teachers combined.

He could disappear, start fresh. SG-1 had developed multiple plans for that eventuality years ago. And it would really be much easier doing it alone, rather than with three other people.

Easier. Alone.

Right.



Prompt 16: breeze (Gen), ep tag for Meridian

Still Water

The lake was still and silent. Jack sat, just as still, just as silent, fishing pole laying abandoned beside him on the small dock.

This downtime was supposed to be about picking up the pieces and redefining SG1. But Carter had headed off to California and Teal’c was visiting Ry’ac. Jack should’ve stopped them, maybe invited them up to the cabin with him, but he really couldn’t care right now.

Daniel was gone, leaving nothing behind except one brief breeze in a corridor.

So Jack sat and stared at the lake, waiting for just one ripple in the smooth surface.



Prompt 17: season (pre-slash)

Missed Opportunity

"It was good luck, arriving on the first night of the rainy season." Daniel's voice was muffled as he stripped off his t-shirt, before working on his pants. "You sure you won't...?"

"Dance naked in the rain with a bunch of strangers on an alien world? What about that scenario makes you think I'd say 'Yes?'" Jack snarked, carefully not noticing that all of Daniel's clothes were now sitting on his pack, instead of on his body.

Daniel deliberately moved to stand face-to-face with Jack. "The company?" he grinned, before turning to join the villagers with a wild whoop.



Prompt 11: lost (Gen), ep-related: Fallen/Homecoming

Lost

Jack had almost reached the elevator, the end of a long few days finally in sight, when he passed Daniel loitering in a corridor. Pivoting abruptly, he approached with a deliberately casual step. Daniel was standing still, his face screwed up in concentration, an expression Jack was becoming all too familiar with.

"Daniel?"

"I think I'm lost," he said, staring away from Jack.

"Yeah, well... Happens to the best of us. Where ya heading?"

Daniel's voice shook. "Jack, I'm... lost."

Jack rested his hand on Daniel’s shoulder a moment before starting them both walking. "I've got ya. Let's go home."

Hi there! *WAVES* Great to see you at DragonCon - thanks for coming to our panel! I was just pointed this way by Eilidh17 and am so glad I came. Love the meaning you manage to get into so few words. Beautiful thoughts - I especially love Still Water and Lost. I wish I could summon such wonderful images and emotions with a minimum of words.

*waves back* I had such a good time at the panel and it was great meeting you!

Thank you for your lovely comments. I'm very glad you liked these. I think Still Water is probably my personal favorite of this set.

Also directed here by Eilidh17 (she's a great cheerleader). These are wonderful, and express so much in such a few words. Looking forward to more!
