… Back to Normal… Sorta…
It had taken Daniel nearly the full two week leave of absence after the mission to P3X-576 to regain all of his memories. During that time, SG1 had stood vigil, watching over him like the adopted family they had become.
He had told them that they did not have to stay, but the group as a whole had said that was what friends were for.
They had watched as he went through mood swings of sadness, happiness, rage and pain. They always tried to help him through the most painful times as much as he allowed them. A lot of times he would push them away, and sometimes he even lashed out at them. But they stuck by him.
This was different than the earlier memory loss when he had been dead for a year, in that his personality was now markedly different than the recent past.
He was quieter now and less likely to babble when excited. He had to consciously suppress the English accent otherwise, tidbits of 'Mother English' showed through.
There were a few new quirks to his personality as well: he was more impatient, he was quicker to anger now, and he was more willing to fight, fiercely if needed.
He was obviously no longer a pacifist. It seemed that he was no longer content when idle. He also seemed to constantly crave movement, as though he could not sit still for long periods of time.
That Friday, the group had parted company.
Teal'c went back to the SGC, through the 'gate, to visit Bra'tac and find out how the Jaffa rebellion was going on Dakarta.
Sam had enjoyed a rare weekend at home.
Jack stayed with Daniel the whole day on Friday. He asked Daniel all kinds of questions about the past and his role in it.
Daniel had told him a lot of what had happened to him. He was surprised that he even told the mortal about his first wife and what had happened to her. He also told Jack about what that had led him to.
After sharing a few beers, Jack had also gone home for the weekend.
