"I'm sorry Coronal but there is nothing I can do, the Pentagon has order that the search be call off so we must stop looking for her."
"But she is out there somewhere. We can't leave her with those disgusting things. Sir if you had seen them you would feel the same way."
"We have been searching for Major Carter for 6 months we can't take up any more time or resources looking for her. It's like looking for a needle in a haystack, there are millions of different planets she could be on and even then these are whole planets it would take years just searching each planet let alone all of them. She has been pronounced MIA and is presumed dead, that is the end of it. You can start looking for a replacement for her next week. I want 4 members of SG-1 to turn up in 2 weeks for a debriefing and if you don't I will find one for you. Dismissed."
She ran through the undergrowth as fast as her legs could carry her. But with her injuries and the heavy pack on her back it wasn't easy. She had a sprained ankle, which had swollen up in her army boots and a dislocated shoulder. She had also been knocked around the head a bit so she suspected a mild concussion.
The creatures that had kidnapped her weren't very bright. In fact she didn't think they had two brain cells to rub together between all 24 of them. They had taken her while she and SG-1 were on a routine mission, it was meant to be just a stop, collect samples and go, mission but it hadn't worked out that way but then they were SG-1 and something always had to go wrong. The creatures had taken her while she was doing a perimeter check. They had grabbed her from behind and knocked her out when she refused to hold still. It seemed that they thought that she was an easy target, being a woman but they had quick been found wrong.
When she had woken up, she was sitting on the forest floor with her hands tied together in front of her. Her legs were free, showing that these…things… didn't think that she would be going to be much trouble. So she had decided to wait till the opportune moment before escaping. Well she had later decided that wasn't a good idea.
It seemed that these creatures didn't like the light so they ran long distances in the night and hid in the daytime. She decided to play the weak little female and was carried most of the way, this had helped to save her strength so that she could escape at any moment. She also still had her guns which she had stuffed into the pack with one still in her leg holster (A/N is that right???) so she could still grab that if she needed it. But the creatures seemed to be getting restless. The leader of the group had been keeping the others away from her, it seemed that they were taking her somewhere or to someone. She suspected that it was a Goa'uld with a grudge against SG-1, not that that was new. But the rest of the group had turned against the leader and killed it. They had then turned on her. Many had started to make sexual moves on her and when she had fought back they have succussed in dislocating her shoulder and spraining her ankle. That was when she had run. One of them had grabbed at her shirt, ripping it before she shot it.
That has scared most of them to see one of there own drop after what seemed to them to be just a loud noise. So now she only had a few chasing her but the others were slowly joining in it seemed as the group was getting bigger.
She occasionally turned and shot one but she only had a hand gun handy so she wouldn't be able to kill them all.
That's when she saw the small group of men in front of her. They must of heard her coming cause they turned to see what was coming their direction. But she was paying to much attention to the group and not to the things chasing her.
Before she knew what was happening one grabbed her and pulled her down. They didn't seem to notice the group of newcomers or if they had they didn't seem to care. Although she wouldn't either there were more of the 'things' then men and 4 of the men were actually children. But right now she had to worry about the thing on top of her not the strange group.
She felt the creature flip her over and used the movement to get her gun in the things gut and fire. She pushed the dead body off of her and jumped to her feet. The gun was now empty so she stuffed it back in its holster and turned to face the next creature. She kicked it in the stomach and turned to run again. But she noticed that the new group were attacking the creatures so hid in a nearby bush and re-loaded her hand gun. She then dumped her pack and joined the fight. There were only about 7 of them left and so it wasn't too hard to finish them off.
When they were all dead she took the time to see who these people were and what weapons they were using.
There were 8 in the group, 4 of which were children and one that was a very short and hairy man. The last 3 were all human adults, 2 who were very rugged looking, like they had been through many battles, and the last was a very cute blond, he looked strong and dignified but at the same time had the figure that most girls would die for. They all had old fashion weapons, like swords, axes, knives and bow & arrow.
At first they didn't pay her any notice as they checked that all the creatures were dead and the others in their group were fine before turning to her.
Not knowing if they were friend or foe she kept her gun at the ready. They stared at each other till one spoke up.
"Were not going to harm you in any way. We just want to help you."
"Yes well until I know who you are forgive me for not welcoming you with open arms." She said sarcastically. But still she lowered her gun and moved over to where she had dropped her pack earlier.
"What is your name M'lady?" one of them asked.
"Maybe you should give me yours and then I will think about giving you mine." She replied as she went through her pack for her medical kit and a clean set of cloths.
"Forgive me. I am Aragorn, son of Arathorn. This is Boromir, son of Denethor. Legolas Thrandailion, Gimli, son of Gloin. Frodo Baggins, Meriadoc Brandybuck. Peregrin Took and Samwise Gamgee."
"Major Samantha Carter. Thanks for your help." She said.
"Your welcome, do you need some help?" Aragorn asked as she began tending to her wounds.
"Unless you know how to relocate a shoulder. No I'm fine."
"I can relocate your shoulder if you would allow me to."
She stopped working for a minute before nodding. She sat down and pulled of her torn tee-shirt revealing a bruised and distorted shoulder.
Aragorn crouched down next to her to examine her while she watched the rest of the group.
"Major??" Boromir asked, "That sounds like a military title."
"You got a problem with that?" she snapped, she knew that she should be use to people commenting about being female with a military background.
"Ladies don't fight in battle." Boromir stated confidently as if he was always right.
"Oh really. How about I come over there and beat the shit out of you then see what you think." She said threateningly.
Boromir looked shocked.
Probably shocked to hear a 'Lady' swear.
She turned her attention back to Aragorn.
"I am going to put your shoulder back in place now. Bite down on this." He said handing her a piece of leather. She did as she was told and bit down hard on the leather as her joint popped back into place. She took the leather out of her mouth and handed the man some bandages to wrap the shoulder. As he did this he spoke.
"Where are you from? You must be from one of the human settlement because you aren't Elf kind."
"Elf? Elves are a myth they are something that some writer made up to amuse little children." Sam looked from Aragorn to the rest of the group and noticed that Legolas looked rather insulted.
"Elves are real. Legolas here is an elf. An elven Prince in fact." Aragorn stated.
"Oh yes and I'm the Queen of America. I mean grow up. How old are you? 3."
"I am 87 how you could mistake me for a child is unknown to me, your highness." Aragorn replied.
"You need to learn how to tell the difference between sarcasm and truth." Sam said before starting to wrap he ankle.
"Then maybe you should teach us the difference." Gimli said.
"You know I would love to but right now I have to find the Stargate and then I am going home. But first I think I need a shower. Those things stink and spending two weeks with them has made me smell the same." Sam stated as she swung he pack onto her back.
"You spent two weeks with those Orcs?!" Pippin asked.
"Orcs? Well if you mean these things yes but it may have been longer, they knocked me out when they caught me. But it was around that long." She said.
"What is a Stargate?" Frodo asked.
"It is a method of transport from one planet to another via a wormhole. Now if you excuse me I must be going."
"None of you are going anywhere." They all turned to see a small group of elves standing behind them pointing arrows at them.
Great this is just what I need, more prissy 'Elves' to tell me what to do.
Aragorn stepped up to the group. "Haldir o Lórien. Henion aníron, boe ammen i dulu lîn. Boe ammen veriad lîn" (Haldir of Lórien, we come here for help. We need your protection.)
Oh great where is Daniel when you need him.
"Aragorn, these woods are perilous! We should go back." Gimli said.
"You know that is the best idea I have heard all day. Cya." Sam said and started to walk off. Only to be stopped by more elves surrounding the group.
"You have entered the realm of the Lady of the Wood. You cannot go back. Come, she is waiting."
"You know I don't care if she is the queen of Sheba I'm not going anywhere with you."
"Man sa heri" (Who is she) Haldir asked Aragorn.
"ni ú tanca" (I [am] unsure) he replied, "mal heri verin n'moina" (But she's very strange)
Haldir nodded to one of the elves who went to knock her over the head but was caught unaware when Sam spun around and kicked him in the stomach.
"Didn't I tell you to piss off." She asked starting to get really annoyed.
"Don't call me that the name is Sam!"
"Fine, Sam." Legolas continued, "I know that you want to go home and you will get there quicker if you let us help. Galadriel has been alive for thousands of years if there is anyone who will know where to find this…Stargate. It's her."
Sam thought for a minute. "Fine let's go see this Galadriel."
