Chapter 19 - Decision Time - posted!

Excerpt:

"So who's all going to be here for the meet and greet?" John asked Landry as he, Rodney, Carson, Carolyn, Sam and Jack sat in the briefing room

"It'll be Muriel O'Sullivan of the WHO, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Ava Latto, and the new UN Special Envoy for Wraith Attack Survivors Dr. Carlos Molino. They UN wanted to send more people but the President agreed with Jack and I that we would only allow three on base. During the meeting we need you, Rodney and Carson present. We're assigning Lorne's team for the security detail...That'll be as much for PR as anything."

"You want them to see a full SG-Team," John surmised

It made sense. Lorne's team – SG-7 – was an exploratory unit like SG-1 were and like Sheppard's team had been.

"We'll start the meet and greet at Todd's cell. The UN want to see feeding in action, and also how Todd's been held while he's been here. After that there'll be a sit-down meeting in one of the observation rooms." Jack explained.

Chapter 18 - Base Camp - now up!

Excerpt:

"Look, come on, just let me in!" Lorne begged security.

"You're not bringing that dog onto this base Colonel."

Evan was growing angry now, and got out of his SUV and marched up to the Sergeant at the gate.

"I helped save the planet yesterday...All I want to do now is to get away from the media and make sure my dog is okay...There's aliens in that mountain 24 hours a day...Maggie's a dog, for Christ's sake! Call Landry, or Carter, or whomever's currently in charge and let me in!"

"I already called Landry sir."

"Yes, he did," Landry suddenly appeared from the direction of the access road, "Let him in."

"Sir?"

"The Colonel's right – it's a dog. I think we can manage."

"Thank you sir."

Chapter 17 - Safe Harbour - now up!

Excerpt:

"Hey hey – it's bad, but she's going to be fine," Rodney said.

"Physically."

"I don't think any of us are going to be fine mentally Jean...But she's got two parents with their heads firmly screwed on, and an uncle who left his sanity behind long ago."

That was enough to make Jeannie chuckle through her tears, "Is that you finally admitting you're a few fries short of a happy meal?"

"It's as close to a confession as you're ever going to get."

Jeannie took Rodney's hand for a second. Rodney was uncomfortable with the gesture, but put up with it for his sister's sake.

"I don't know how much more I can take Mer...I...

"Kaleb and I had a talk a little while ago...if Atlantis is restaffed we want to go there to live."

Rodney's eyes widened, "Isn't that a little drastic?"

"I don't think so...My daughter just got assaulted by a mob of articulate, supposedly intelligent people in her uncle's backyard, where she should be safe. And our family home got destroyed by aliens! And one of those journalists accused me of being responsible for his brother's death. How long before there's a lynch mob on our doorstep? My daughter isn't safe anymore, and both Kaleb and I have skills that the Stargate programme can use."

"Atlantis isn't safe either...You really think all the other countries in the world are just going to let her sit in San Francisco Bay?"

"Atlantis has a shield – Vancouver doesn't."

Chapter 16 - Intrusion - now up!

Excerpt:

"So Meredith McKay's your uncle?" smiled the woman in the sharp business suit.

"Uhm, yeah, look listen, I'm not supposed to talk to strangers," Maddie told her.

"I'm not a stranger Miss Miller," the woman responded, "I'm Mandy McDade of the Vancouver Daily News."

She handed Maddie a business card before picking up her cell phone and placing a call.

"1425 Lansdowne Avenue," she said quickly, before putting the phone back in her purse.

"That's my uncle's address...I'm not supposed to be talking to the media."

"We're not here to make stories, only to report on them...Everyone wants to talk to your family – your mother and uncle are heroes. We just want to speak to them and get their take on what happened...The people need to hear from them!"

Maddie noticed with some alarm that several more people were coming along the woodland path from both directions, including a tall man wearing a blue who was making his way toward them at speed.

"This the Miller girl?" he said angrily, "What you trying to do Mandy? This is supposed to be my exclusive!"

"Well I got to her first so I think you'll find she's mine!"

Maddie began to back away from the two journalists as she counted at least a dozen more heading their way.

Chapter 15 - Home - now up!

Excerpt:

John had opted to walk to Dave's, and the security detail surrounded him at distance. He'd had time to go to the house and pack a bag full of Patrick's clothes, some diapers, some formula and some of his favourite toys. Now they were walking in the midday sun towards Dave's house, or more formally, Dave's main residence.

It seemed an irony that their affluent community seemed to have survived unscathed when John knew from the TV that so many poor places had been wiped off the face of the Earth.

No, here there was no damage, or so he thought, until he spotted a fed-upon corpse in the grounds of one of the nearby houses.

John suddenly held Patrick closer, trying to shield him from anything untoward, not that the 14 month-old would understand or care about what he might see.

"Any casualty estimates here?" John asked one of the accompanying marines.

"Very little dart damage – the darts that came her dropped off troops...It might look unscathed sir, but we've already found hundreds of bodies in this area."

That thought chilled John. This neighbourhood looked the same as always, but how many of his neighbours had been killed? And just how high was the death toll in the worse affected areas?

Chapter 14 - The Human Story - now up!

Excerpt:

"Most of our allies are human, or descended from humans. Some others look far different. But I am convinced we are all far more similar than we are dissimilar. Details of what SG-1 and the other exploratory teams have achieved over the last fifteen years will prove that to you, and we only need to look to our allies the Hebridians - who are comprised of two totally different species - to realise that no matter where you go, people are people. Even our allies that are a different species to us share our basic humanity.

"I know I've talked for longer than you were expecting, but I'm hoping that this has given you a little taste of the more human side of what we've all been doing these past several years. I won't be taking questions at this point as there will be other speakers, but I would like to sincerely thank you for your time."

With that, Daniel brought his winding speech to a close, and joined SG-1. Together they posed for photographs, arms around each others shoulders in a show of complete unity as a myriad of camera flashes bombarded them.

Battle walked up to the lectern to inform the press of the rest of the day's schedule as SG-1 filed off, and he made sure to shake each of their hands as they left, before starting the run-down of the schedule.

SG-1 arrived back in the waiting room to a round of applause from the chair operators.

"Dr Jackson, that was some speech...The press liked that a lot more than either Strom's or Park's," John smiled.

"It was a very impressive speech," Teal'c intoned, a small smile on his features.

"You're an alien?" Dave said in shock.

"Indeed!" Vala responded on his behalf, "We're very alieny."

Chapter 13 - United Nations - now up!

Excerpt:

"The chair operators filed into the press room silently, flanked by Under-Secretary-Generals and representatives of the Permanent Five. They were put into order, with Jeannie, Carolyn, Miko and Rafaela in the centre of the group. When Jeannie realised she'd be right behind the Secretary-General during his speech, she flashed Rodney a worried look, but he flashed her an equally worried look in return.

With the the Secretary-General's 'backdrop' in place, the group's stomach's collectively began to churn as the media pack were allowed in.

John kept a close eye on the media, taking in their appearances. There were reporters from all over the world (one reporter per country he'd overheard), and while some were neat and polished, complete with dictaphones and tablets, others were dishevelled, wearing crumpled clothes and holding tatty notebooks. Some sported injuries either from reporting on the attack, or from simply being caught in the carnage. Some of the reporters had figured out who the assembled group were, giving them small smiles, others were blank. But worryingly John noticed some reporters glaring in their direction.

"Members of the Press, Secretary-General Park Hyun-Woo will be here momentarily. We would like to ask for complete silence. As you know Mr Park will not be taking questions so we would ask you to keep questions for later briefings. Mr Park's address will be brief." Advised Under-Secretary-General Battle.

There was a moment of silence, and then Secretary-General Park Hyun-Woo appeared from the side to a flurry of camera flashes."

Chapter 12 - The Waiting Game - now up!

It's the last update of 2014!!

Excerpt:

"I can't believe how bloody stupid I've been," grimaced Carson as he sat in a private meeting with President Robins, British Prime Minister Rupert Morgan and IOA Head Dr Strom.

"Well it's certainly created a problem or ten for us all. The WHO want Todd handed over for study and observation, Some countries are making noise about putting him on trial at the Hague for the crimes of his species, and some countries want him executed and dissected. A few countries also want Todd to restore life to a few of their senior officials who were injured. Sudan's Vice-President is in critical condition in a hospital in Beijing where he'd been for a summit. Sudan are threatening action against the US if we don't give them Todd," Strom outlined.

"Another problem is that the countries of the IOA have all been aware of Todd's incarceration. There's been calls for every IOA country to be put under investigation, and there's been calls for the Permanent Five to lose their seats on the Security Council," Robins advised.

Carson dropped his head into his hands, sighing loudly.

"It's maybe better that this came out now," Prime Minister Morgan said quietly, "Perhaps we need everything out in the open. Get rid of as many secrets as we can. People need to know that they can trust their governments and the UN to handle this situation well."

Chapter 11 - Politics - Now up!

Excert:

""You have too much faith in your fellow man Dr. Jackson," Richard responded dryly, "Living among the Washington wolves for so long has taught me to never be surprised by politicians and bureaucrats' levels of self-interest...I used to be very much like them."

"I remember," Daniel said quietly, thinking back to the dark days after Janet Fraiser's senseless death, and SG1's subsequent grilling at the hands of Senator Kinsey's office.

"What are they proposing so far?"

"The plan at the moment is for the IOA to become absorbed into the UN, and for each UN member state to have its own IOA representative. For the chair locations, they're thinking along the lines of how we already deal with Antarctica, but that could require each chair-holding nation to cede a small area of their country to UN/IOA control to provide a secure buffer zone...Some countries are also wanting to table a motion that will see screening for the ATA Gene to be carried out worldwide, though this information will likely not make it into the public sphere just yet.

"As for Atlantis? The UN is not happy leaving it in San Francisco Bay where it can and likely will cause problems – the city is so advanced that they're not happy with it being within the boundaries of a single nation state."

"So what? Are they're going to tow it out to sea or something?"

"The IOA are thinking a little more drastically than that – they're ready to table a motion to take the fight back to Wraith – they want Atlantis back in Pegasus."

Chapter 10 - Loss - now up!

Beware - references to the death of a regular in this chapter!

Excerpt

"That seems a nonsense...Why not just beam there?"

"Well that was discussed while you were sleeping," Daniel allowed himself a small grin, "It was considered, but beaming technology hasn't been revealed to the world yet, plus the President needs an early photo opportunity for morale's sake apparently, so there'll be some film crews on the lawn."

"Oh, wonderful," Carson muttered, "Does my government know about this?"

"Yes. As far as I know both the British Prime Minister and the Scottish First Minister are well aware of your involvement."

After a few minutes of walking, the small group left the confines of the White House and walked the short distance to where Marine One and Marine Two were waiting.

"The Vice President arrived a short while ago, he'd been at the Pentagon when the attack started," Daniel explained.

Carson became very self-conscious when he saw the small media crew that were standing to the side of the helicopters.

"How bad do I look?" he whispered to Daniel as he fixed a neutral expression on his face.

"Not too bad," Daniel lied.

Chapter 9 - Siblings - now up!

Excerpt:

"Prime Minister Day's going to be really mad," Ronon agreed, "We've been keeping Sateda's repopulation as quiet as possible...Don't want the Wraith to show up to a free banquet."

Teyla nodded in agreement, knowing the security of their worlds would have to be their first priority before any loyalty to their friends on Earth. She wished she could talk more to Ronon, but she was uncomfortably aware of the Satedan Honour Guards in position around Sateda's fortified Stargate Control complex, and was even more aware of the presence of a few of the new Satedan government's top brass who were hanging around, keeping a close eye on her interaction with Ronon.

"I'll ask Kaldan to put together a statement for Earth," Ronon said, "I think it's about the most we can do at present."

"I will also ensure that I personally pass along the best wishes of Sateda's Strategic Planning Secretary, prior to Prime Minister Kaldan Day's statement," Teyla said, using Ronon's new government title with pride.

Ronon allowed himself a smile, but remained silent for a moment.

"Wish I could visit 'em. Tell them we're here for them,"

"Believe me they already know, otherwise Sam would not have asked me to pass on news of the attack to you."

"I guess."

Ermagerd...I actually finished a WIP I've had sitting for almost a DECADE today!!!



Festive S/J fluff with a plot!
suekay_87: (Weir)
I finally completed an S/J fic I'd left hand for...NINE YEARS.

I'm a terrible person, I know.

Thing is, it's been a long long while since I wrote any Sam/Jack, or any romance for that matter.

Would anyone be willing to read over it for me??

Chapter 8 - The Rebuild Begins - now up!

Excerpt:

"It still amazed Sam how quick travel could be between one galaxy and another these days. It had taken her all of five minutes to get from Athos to Earth. She'd simply said goodbye to Teyla, returned to the ZPM rigged gate, given Marks his orders to get her ship back to Earth, and then she stepped right through to the SGC. A lengthy hug from Teal'c and a direct beam to Washington later and before she knew it she was walking the corridors of power, still in her Hammond jumpsuit.

Jack was waiting for her a short way from her beam-in site, and she'd never seen him look so haggard, so done.

"Oh Jack," she sighed, embracing her husband in the tightest hug she could, not caring who was looking at them.

"Hey," he said quietly holding her close, "how are you doing?""

Chapter 7 - Disclosure - now up!

Excerpt:

"I'll let the others know," Sam responded, enveloping Teyla in a hug.

"I do not believe there is much that Athos can do to assist you," Halling said timidly.

"Your friendship is more than enough," Sam smiled sadly, "It will do Earth good to know we have friends out here as well as enemies."

"Are all our friends from Atlantis safe?"

"I'm sorry Teyla, I really don't know...I wish I did...I don't even know if my brother and his kids are safe yet."

Teyla frowned and looked to the ground, "My vision showed widespread destruction on Earth on a level not far off that of a Great Cull such as the one our own ancestors endured five generations ago."

"Teal'c didn't tell me very much, but I get the impression it's bad...I'll not lie – I'm worried sick."

Chapter 6 - Broadcast - is now up!

Excerpt:

"Sheppard! Can you please get me out of this cave!" Rodney's mind called out.

"In a minute McKay!"

Sheppard and Markov were busy retrieving the operators from their various locations. So far they'd gotten Esposito, Lam, Lorne, and Miko back to Russia.

"It's pitch black and it's been stinking of fish since I got here and now there's seals waddling towards me...I'm in a cove with nowhere to go...I don't want to be eaten!"

"They won't eat you McKay!" John shouted.

Sheppard looked towards Markov who, having not been privy to his and Rodney's conversation gave him a very strange look before inputting some commands to the tablet. Seconds later Rodney appeared in the room.

Chapter 5 - Turning the Tide - is now up!

Excerpt:

"Dave didn't think he'd ever get used to being beamed. What the hell had his brother been up to? This was like Star Trek or Star Wars or something! He'd been beamed into what sounded like a coastal cave as he could hear the ocean nearby. He couldn't see his hand in front of his face for what felt like forever until slowly a tiny amount of moonlight filtered in from the direction of the sea. The cave bottom was uneven, and some water lapped around the lower levels. The walls were crumbling, bits coming away in his hand as he felt his way along. Not feeling confident standing on the uneven floor of the cave, he wasted no time sitting in the chair as soon as his foot came into contact with the smooth surface of the pedestal. He took a deep breath as the chair immediately came to life, it's light illuminating the entire chamber."
