Better Late Than Never

Happy birthday, Des.

I was going to write something deep and sincere about you, me, time and the strange nature of friendship, but you know how I feel about sentiment, mushiness and things of that ilk. Then I thought I might write something funny to make you smile, because God knows you deserve one or two or a hundred or 10^23. Then I remembered at the last possible instant that I'm really very bad at comedy (whew), and decided to leave the laughter to those much more talented than I. So you will have to settle instead for my warm wishes, kind regard, and deep affection... oh, and the shortest* Jack/Daniel story ever written...

***

Once upon a time, Jack and Daniel met, and were separated and sort-of-married to other people, but then they weren't separated or married anymore. Then there was a little death, resurrection, aliens, death, a sarcophagus, addiction, angst, bureaucrats, death, time loop, death, ascention, death, more sarcophagi, descention, hibernation, promotion, and pie. And Jack looked at Daniel and said, "Wow."

And Daniel looked back and said, "Yeah. Let's go home, Jack."

Jack smiled, and laid a warm hand just at the spot where Daniel's neck curved into his shoulder. "Let's go home."

And they lived happily ever after.

***

I love you, babe. Happy birthday.

LOL!! That's it, right there. *g* I think this is, quite possibly, the most *complete* J/D story ever. You've pretty much covered everything!! There's nothing left for the rest of us to do. We can just point to this.

*HUGS* Thank you for...oh, everything. For being such a good friend, and for all the good wishes. Love you -- and thank you for this.
