Happy Birthday!

Yay, it's destina day! And destina gets a day because she makes people happy with stories and recs and meta and then it turns out that she's a wonderful person too, even when her life is eating her head and taking her away from us. Sniff.

So here, a Present, on the Occasion Of Your Birthday. It's not much, but it's yours. SG-1, S9.


Daniel gaped at him, melon frozen halfway to his mouth. For a highly intelligent man, Teal'c reflected, Daniel Jackson was easily surprised.

"Jack told you that," he said. "Our Jack."

Teal'c didn't smile. That would take the fun out of it. "Indeed he did. We had a most interesting discussion of masculine archetypes and their varied applications." Which was true, as far as it went, though the conversation had not involved the word "archetype" so much as it had a great deal of beer (on O'Neill's part) and repeated invocations of the Village People. Teal'c, who had fond memories of attending a Village People concert at the El Paso County Fair as one of his first unescorted offbase excursions, had understood the concept immediately, and connected it to the oversized phalluses worn by the priests of the Goa'uld Min on special feast days. At that point O'Neill had brought up the zats, and been adequately horrified by the cautionary tales Teal'c remembered from his adolescence in the training barracks. It had been a most satisfying evening, excellent compensation for the time spent testifying in small, classified rooms to irritating, sweaty politicians.

"Huh." The melon finally made its way to its final destination, and Daniel chewed thoughtfully, tapping his plate with the tines of his fork. "I'd have thought the whole gay cowboy thing would've made him... jumpy."

Teal'c finally let himself arch one eyebrow. "It did not. He said that he felt a great kinship for the characters' attachment to open, less-civilized spaces, and the freedom found therein, along with the difficulty of reconciling this attachment with the demands of family and duty." Alma was the smart one there, O'Neill had said, well into his cups, voice and face a little sad. Sometimes you gotta be someone, but you can't.

"Huh," Daniel said again. "I wouldn't... huh. How drunk was he?"

Teal'c sighed. The fun was going out of this conversation. "Significantly. I do not believe he is enjoying his time in Washington."

"No," Daniel said. He rubbed at his eyes, then stabbed another piece of melon. "I suppose it's good for us that he's there, but no. I wouldn't think he would."

eeee! BBM meets SG-1. I can't imagine a better combo for Des!

And this is both funny and poignant. And Teal'c noting that Daniel is both smart and easily surprised--love that because it's true!

You have such a cool brain. :)

Ha! You managed to combine two such different obsessions of the birthday gal. (shudders at the training accidents*)

It's interesting that there is such a strong anti-DC thread in these stories.

DC took Jack away from us. Of course we don't like it!

(shudders at the training accidents*)

I know, right? But come on, a bunch of male teenagers stuck together, phallic-looking guns... not gonna end well.

Yeah. I didn't mean it to be sad, truly, just... it turned out that way.

You just know Teal'c is a Village People fan. I mean, seriously.

It's okay, Daniel. You keep denying, we'll keep not believing.

I keep fixating on Teal'c at a Village People concert. One of those 'so wrong it's right' scenarios...

Oh, don't even try to tell me Teal'c isn't a Village People fan. He would be all over the Village People.

I just love a compact fic that holds so much. That sly Jaffa playing with Daniel's mind...and ultimately ours too. :o) Lovely piece.

Thank you! Yeah, Teal'c's got a sneaky sense of humor, that's for sure.

*boggle* I cannot believe you have found a way to incorporate Brokeback Mountain into a story with Daniel and Teal'c. I am in AWE. :D And Teal'c is totally playing with Daniel, the way cats play with things they are amused by and have decided not to kill. *g* I think, though, that my favorite part is the idea of Teal'c and Jack hanging out and bonding over war stories and the Village People, omg...and somehow -- somehow! -- discussing this movie! And oh, all the things that aren't being said, in *any* of these conversations. All the things Jack can't say.

Wow, thank you so much. For the touching, oh-so-lovely story, and the good wishes. :D

I suspect Jack let Teal'c pick the movie. He was kind of hoping for explosions, but alas, no.

I'm glad it made you smile. :)

Thank you! I spent the weekend in fannish company, and we all came to an agreement that Jack had a hard life. (John Crichton's life might on average be more difficult, but Jack won on single-day badness.)
