It was...beautiful.

He couldn't find any other way to describe it. Over two-dozen languages at his disposal and he couldn't find the right words.

The city seemed to float on the ocean. Its towers reached toward the heavens and gleamed under the alien sun. It called to him, beckoning him closer and closer.

He stared ahead, thinking of all the times he'd tried to come to Atlantis and all the times he'd failed. He thought of Jack. He thought of home. He thought of the urgency of their mission.

He felt his sense of wonder start to fade.

Then, he felt her hand. He felt it slip between his fingers and give him the slightest squeeze before her touch vanished.

As did some of the pain.

It was beautiful.

And so was she.

Ohhhh, I like this. So much. So brief and sweet, yet so meaningful. I like when you write episode tags. :)

Ooh, I'm going to hopefully crank that one out tomorrow. Today I had to finish a MacGyver/SG-1 icon fic for Salieri. And I have NO idea how it's going to go over. It's... I don't know, it's odd to write Mac in this way. eesh.

Here via surreallis's LJ and stumbled across your fic.

This is very nice. I love the image of just a quick handhold between the two and the things unspoken in between. A very nice addition to the episode.

I friended you so I can read your fics as they're written. Hope that's OK.

No problem at all.

I am glad that you liked it. :)
