-------------------------


There had been no end.

He had kept chasing her. No rest. No reprieve. The Super Soldier's pursuit had been relentless.

She hadn't known if she would survive. She just knew that she had to keep going. She had to keep pressing forward. In the end, she knew that he would be there. He would be waiting for her.

And then it happened. Just when she thought she couldn't run anymore, it was over.

Sam exhaled, releasing some of the pain. As her adrenaline waned and reality set in, she felt the fear, the hurt, the shock take over.

But then there was the warmth of his touch, the comfort of his presence as he let her rest beside him. He held her – there, unshamed, in the open – making her feel real, protected, secure. He was her rock.

"It's okay," he said, whispering to her. "It's over now."

It was over. And she didn't have to run anymore.

Neither of them had to run anymore.

Well, it's very short and not super fantastic, but it's something.

I wrote it when I started mulling over all the crazy in the fandom. I realized what I do in fandom does't have to reflect what I want on the show. Because in fandom we can do whatever we want and that is fun. So why limit myself? It doesn't mean I've "betrayed" myself if I play in different pools. I mean, I adore all the characters. I'll have fun where I want to have fun ;)

That's so completely true. Exactly the right attitude, I completely agree. God knows I've written a ton of pairings I would NEVER want to see on screen. For that matter, this is often where I get in trouble with the hard core S/J folk, because as much as I live for that 'ship, I don't really want to see it fleshed out on screen. The S/J 'shippers were desperately hoping to eventually see the kind of dating/bedroom scenes between Sam and Jack we saw between Sam and Pete, and that whole idea simply horrified me. I mean...just...NO. I want the UST and the hints of maybe something behind the scenes to last forever, but I really don't want to see it in canon.

And the Sam/Pete thing -- I know you know how much I squee over this 'ship.:) I am probably the loudest remaining Sam/Pete 'shipper standing.*g* However, I spent all of Season 8 going "Don't you DARE marry him, don't you DARE marry him...", because I would never have wanted canon to go that way. But in fic, I'm all over it.:)

So, anyway...a lot of babbling to say YES, no one should ever be judged on what they choose to write and how they choose to let their muse explore and play. This is all about having fun, it's not a political war.

I think is exactly it. What we write is not necessarily a reflection of who we are. Are we part of our writing? Absolutely. But just because I want to explore Sam/Pete in fic doesn't mean I wanted Sam/Pete to actually happen on the show. In fact, while I liked Pete, I don't think he was right for Sam. At least not THAT Sam. I thought it was a bad idea to bring him on since we all knew it wouldn't last anyway. I found it as a way to toy with fans but that's a different story altogether...sort of like how they brought in Diana on the X-Files.

Anywho...I've never minded hints of affection between characters on SG-1. Sam/Jack included. Daniel/Vala included. and all i really want are scenes that show how much Sam and Daniel care for each other. It doesn't have to be "shippy." That's not the point. We all see what we want to see anyway. But like you, I don't ever want it actually realized on screen nor do I ever want it to over power the story. But that's me :)

I'm so glad that more people are gaining this attitude.

I have so much fun coming up with new and interesting pairings to play with. Being unlimited is SO much fun. I really need to dip my toes into the male slash end of the pool a bit more.

Love the drabbles.

A beautiful testimony to a realtionship doomed to friendship and unrequited love. Very nice!!

Actually, I think that UST is the best part of their relationship. Makes things interesting and so much fun to write. Plus, deep, insecure UST is not the same as getting married and living happily ever after, so it wouldn't necessarily be like you were writing hardcore ship. If you were to write another, I mean. :)

This part of Sam/Jack doesn't bother me as much as some other people. I feel like it's a testimant to how much Sam and Jack put their careers and their duty to protect Earth first ahead of any kind of feelings they desire. It speaks to their strength of character.
Traycer: Samtraycer_ on April 11th, 2007 02:34 am (UTC)
I agree, which is why I tend to shy away from the stories where they "throw away" their careers so that they can live happily ever after, although if I remember correctly, I think I did write one of those things...

I like reading and writing S/J, but I'm just as happy having them paired with others or not paired with anyone at all. Its the adventures they go through and how they deal with their problems that I like the best.

That was awesome. :) The friendship and trust between them has always been my favorite part of the ship, and you did a great job writing that relationship here.

I especially liked the last one. That was such a good episode, but most people pass it over when it comes to fics. I loved yours.
