This is just brilliant! Oh my god this scene in the locker room that you wrote is pure genius. I adore this story. How I wish we could have seen seomthing like that happening in the series :(

Confession time Pol -I read this story several months ago before I was familiar with your other work. I enjoyed it then and was delighted when I came back to it after becoming more familiar with your other stories. The part that captivated me the first time was the locker room scene. Your work as a writer is excellent.
I do agree with IggyMing about the status of the relationship, though. I think that there is no way Sam would have slipped so deep into the relationship with Pete if she had really believed that Jack still loved her. I don't think she hated Pete at the end, either -she seems very disappointed in herself for hurting him in the episode.
"If looks could kill, Sam knew that Jacob Carter would be a smoking corpse." -this is my all-time favorite 'angry Carter' look in the series and you captured it in words. :)

God, this was great! Sweet like sugar and yet so sad in a way. So many emotions all in one story. Okay, right, Threads for sure is a good guideline but still it's your words and the "in between" scenes you added that makes this one so special.
I really liked the drowning-theme you used and I could clearly feel her panic then. The scene in the locker room was just great! Simply love such moments! ;)
And these lines here: "She nodded slightly, her eyes filling again with tears as her dad closed his eyes in relief." They say everything that's needed to be said. Great work! :)
All in all yet another brilliant story of yours. :D
P.S.: About the background story for "Being there": didn't know that before. It's sweet and I can clearly see why you wanted to include this. :)

Lovely companion piece to the first story. However, when Jack says, "I love you. I think you already knew that", I must say that I wholeheartedly disagree. I honestly do not believe that she knew that Jack loved her. On a number of occasions (Lost City, for example), we see Sam struggling to have The Conversation with Jack, but each time, he blew her off. I don't think that Sam would have developed a relationship with Pete had she known that Jack loved her... I don't think I could respect her if she did. I think the only reason she was with Pete was because she thought Jack no longer loved her. I believe that in "Threads" is the first time that Sam truly realizes that Jack still loves her, after all of this time since the zatarc incident.
Sorry for the rant. I really enjoyed your story, nevertheless.

Oh Pol, you've reduced me to tears again! I loved this, and what a fantastic twist on the scenes with Jacob on his deathbed. I really like that interpretation, and I think I'm definitely going to view that scene differently next time :)

:) Aw. I loved it.
| sg1star chapter 1 . 5/24/2009
thsi is the kind of ending that eposide should of had, gave jacob dying meaning yet gave a proper ending to it, though not a finish for jack and sam but a begining. So will there be more to this story?

Fantastic story. Had everything included: sadness, love, understanding and the right touch of sweetness. Perfect thanks.
