The battle against the Ori just never seemed to end.
Morning. Day. Night. They plotted. They searched. They scoured the galaxy. All in an effort to find a way to beat the Ori and their other enemies.
He was tired. Hell, they all were tired. Jackson stayed on base all hours of the night trying to defy sleep and beat all odds. Teal'c kept ferrying back and forth between the SGC and what was left of the Jaffa. Vala…he didn't know what on Earth Vala did and he wasn't willing to find out. Even Sam couldn't be pried away from her technical thingamabobs.
Suffocating. That was the word. Little bubbles of doom. They hung over everyone like those comical rain clouds that followed people around in the funnies. Only, they weren't so funny or comical.
SG-1 was supposed to have been fun. Exploration. Cool stuff. Alien kink.
But instead, at the end of the day, he found himself in Sam's lab, his arm around her shoulders, caught in his own silence as he listened to her cry.
And he cried along with her.
