Another threat. Another damn problem.

Day in and day out he fought to ensure the longevity of the Stargate Program even while it killed him inside, knowing that every day people he knew – people he cared about – were dying.

He should be there with them.

But as a friend once told him, he could do more this way.

With a sigh, he opened his desk draw and brought out a picture. There they were, his team – always his team – at their last barbeque at his house in Colorado.

He touched the photo.

He wouldn't let anything happen to them. Ever.

This is a much more logical explanation to Jacx's decision to quit than that provided by the showrunners. Burn out. Simple, human, Jack.

No kidding.

Actually, I think it's easily a bunch of issues all wrapped into one. I am using this as a basis for my fanfics set in Season 9 for sanity's sake. (I love Jack.)

By the end of season 8, basically the war with the Goa'uld was over. Sure, everyone knew they were still a threat but not something that needed as many resources as the SGC had initially used. At the end of S8, Teal'c was already shuffling back and forth between Dakaara and the SGC. SG-1 hadn't been going on as many missions anymore. Many of their more advanced allies had kicked the bucket. The war with the Repliators was over. Anubis defeated (sort of). So...not much happening.

Then I pretty much see Sam, grieving over her father, reconnects with Cassie and decides to leave the SGC. That left just Jack and Daniel. Daniel, seizing the opportunity, pushed to go to Atlantis. This time, there really was nothing holding him back so he got the green light. Nothing Jack could do to stop him.

With things easing up, Hammond finally retires. And with everything happening so quickly, Jack is both promoted for his work in ending the threat to their galaxy, and not only accepts the promotion, but accepts the reassignment. He's tired and doesn't feel compelled to stay at the SGC now that everyone is leaving. He assigns Landry to hold things over and Lam as well to try to have them work things out. He knows they'll keep an eye on Daniel long enough to send him off, and he trusts Landry to oversee the Atlantis project. His old team gone, Jack gives final approval for Mitchell to have SG-1.

Obviously, no one was expecting the Ori thing to burst wide open. By this time, Jack would have asked to come back to the SGC, but since he knew it was in capable hands, he decided to keep running Homeworld Security. He figures that he can fight for the SGC and remain a bug in the President's ear more easily in Washington. Landry reports to him, so he's in the know concerning everything. This way, he's still actively working to protect the galaxy and keeping tabs on his old team and his dear friends, just in a different way.

And they know it ;)

Nice. Write more! Hurry! Before the semester starts up again and I feel totally too guilty to beg for more fics!

Also, I really need to make more Stargate icons. This one of two that I have and neither seemed close to appropriate for this reply. Hmm...

I only have a few days left! Oh no!

More Stargate icons are always a good thing...though it would be pretty funny if you only used the same one for everything. Someone has a Dan/Jan fic and you're like great job! See my icon! And they see Daniel/Teal'c...
Amy Cooper: oopsamycooper on January 13th, 2006 03:49 pm (UTC)

See, this gives me an idea. I need a Janet/Paul Davis icon to use whenever I reply to meg_tdj's Dan/Jan fic. I love teasing her because she's just so fun to tease!

Oh, and I forgot to add...

See how the other Stargate icon could be horrible to use in response to a fanfic.

Hey read my story.


What? What's wrong with my story? Did I make a horrible typo?
