YES! Pete sends up soon many red flags it's not even funny. Love bombing is a form of manipulation. Trying to make her feel bad for not committing treason and disclosing classified information the night after they first slept together, and then leaving in a hissy fit. I'm surprised no one thought he was working for someone. He's controlling and manipulative and she should be very worried about being in a relationship with him. Your story is much more believable. I also always wondered about what would happen once her and Jack actually got together. She's a little inexperienced and her two previous serious relationships were both obviously controlling and unhealthy. And I don't think she spent much time dating during the series. She would probably have some hangups.

"As a scientist she should know better than to make life altering decisions based solely on the side effects of a massive concussion."
Not to mention the lack of concern by both herself and the Air Force as to the back ground check and how he showed up at the op...
I don't think the Air Force would have been so caviler nor any women that had survived/been victorious over a previous abusive relationship - Jonas in 'First Commandment'
Your story is much more believable!

Yeah. A background check by the FBI on an Air Force Major working at a highly classified facility should totally have tripped quite a few security flags.

Amazing. Well written.
It is a shame you didn't continue. I dare to hope you will do so nonetheless.

Pity it isn't possible to convey a standing ovation in a review. 'Cause you deserve one. I HATE Shanahan. And I hate Carter when she's around him. I'm not trying to bash Sam (I love ALL of the lead characters), but she just acts...*different* around him. I would have paid good money to see her react this way on the show.

Great story ... any chance you're going to finish it? Is Pete really out of the picture? Will they talk? Where have they gone? And I'm really curious about the title... :o)

Great alternate scene. Love the idea at the end. Please update soon!

Yeah, I don't get the abusivePete fics where Same doesn't fight back. Sure she did. See "Emancipation" for just how well she can!
Thanks! Good for you. Sam's no whimp.

The show takes matters of National Security too lightly. I've complained to TPTB over and over, directly. I find it offensive to an extreme difficult to describe. It dishonors the men and women who spend a lifetime keeping these secrets from their loved ones and from the enemy.
Good for you! About time someone wrote this.

good story.. i am also of the group that believes pete was just not right, tho not necessarily abusive...he and that FBI agent should truly gotten into a whole lot of trouble for running a background like that... while it is common practice for cops to run a basic criminal check thru NCIC, and most supervisors look the other way (at least the ones i know always do), that is as far as is "acceptable"...once you start getting into National Security, especially in this post 9-11 world, its a whole new ballgame...
as far as jurisdiction in military vs. local law enforcement.. jurisdiction falls on local law enforcement, esp. in cases of domestic abuse, which are classified in most states as a criminal offense, in which case the state presses charges, whether or not the victim agrees.. the cop backing down to colonel jack was unrealistic, and most likely would have gotten him in a whole lot of hot water as the case was investigated... tho questioning her at the time would have been at the officer's discretion (because of her injuries)... jack had NO jurisdiction at that moment...
dont get me wrong, i still love the story, just have a peeve about disrespect to local law enforcement...
btw, BDU's are incredibly stain resistant...that's kind of the idea... they're not typically affected by most "normal" stains... incl. blood
