There were some moments that would stay with Jack forever.

Like his first model plane or his first telescope, both of which had steered him towards the sky and the stars. But there was also his first day in uniform, the first time he'd watched Sara walk across Freddie's Field, the first time he'd soared across the open plains of clear blue sky.

The first time he'd killed a man.

He couldn't forget the day Charlie was born or the day Charlie was taken from him. His first loss. His father's death. The first time those Iraqi bastards had broken his fingers.

He'd always remember that late August night, long after the sun went down, making love to Sara behind his cabin in the woods.

Charlie's first game.

Charlie's last breath.

That first time through the Stargate when he'd been so cold, so empty, so worn, wishing to disappear and absolve himself of all his sins. That first time back, hoping to find forgiveness in her arms again.

The first time SG-1 became a team. Their first victory. Their first failure.

Losing Daniel. Losing Carter. Losing Teal'c.

His first time at Hammond's old desk. His first time realizing just how hard it was to be Hammond.

The defeat of the Goa'uld.

Moving on.

The end. The beginning. He couldn't tell the difference anymore.

Not that it mattered. The memories, both the good and the bad, mixed with pleasure and pain, blended into one damn mess. But it wasn't a mess that Jack would ever forget. That mess of memory would stay with him forever, or at least as long as he lived, and as long as he knew his friends – his family – needed him.

Thanks! I didn't think so, because it was just a writing exercise, but thank you nonetheless :)

This is very poignant. I love Jack, and you captures quite a lot of his story in this snippet. Thank you.

Thanks for reading.

So very beautiful, and yet very sad. Jack sure had a long history of firsts didn't he?

Can't wait for the other various projects!

The memories, both the good and the bad, mixed with pleasure and pain, blended into one damn mess.

That is how he'd look at it, isn't it. Beautiful piece of writing.

Oh, really nice! Some lovely imagery - I particularly like, well, all the bits with Sara (they're fast becoming my Super Secrit OTP). Jack must have such a mess of important memories - he's lived enough for several lifetimes. :)

Hee! They're my not-quite super secret OTP. I have only one ship associated with the show and that's it.

I've always liked Jack/Sara, but it was only after I had written a stort for them that I realized just how much I loved them. I don't do the whole OTP thing for SG-1, but if I did, I think they would be it.

Mind you, I am also a sucker for Daniel/Sha're. But I didn't like tv!Sha're. I really loved Sha'uri from the movie. So the Sha're from the show sort of put a damper on that pairing for me. I do love the tragedy for it at least. maybe if I pretend I see Sha'uri instead of Sha're, I'll feel better.

But Jack/Sara all the way!

I've even created a page for them. This isn't a self pimp to read fic as I have nothing new for them anyway, but I just wanted to share the layout for the page if you're bored.

Oooo. Thanks. I've got some reading to do now!

They call to you. You know you want them to be your OTP. You know it. *not so subtle shove*

Nice! And very Jack.

I was afraid it wouldn't have much of a Jack twinge at all since I haven't written him in a while.

Just found this one. I understand beginnings and endings and how they can change you, so this one really touches me.
