Shooting the Bull

Chapter One: Shooting the Bull

Major John Sheppherd and Lieutenant Aiden Ford sat in the cockpit of Puddle Jumper one doing some maintenance when Shepherd glanced over at Ford and asked offhandedly. "So, you know this Colonel Carter."

The young man looked over at him. "I've met her. She's part of SG-1. Served under General O'Neill and is now the CO of the team."

"You ever heard anything about her and McKay?"

Ford gave him an indignant look. "McKay's still alive, isn't he? Come one, we're talking about 'Black Widow Carter'. Every man she's ever kissed has ended up dead."

Sheppherd gave him a shocked look. "Every man?"

"Every man," Ford repeated. "I mean, first there was this Jonas guy, not the alien dude that was on SG-1 for a while, but this Air Force Major. He and Carter dated back before they both ended up at the SGC. He went crazy on some planet and killed his team and then got killed himself. Then there was this Narem guy, alien. He and Carter kissed and he and his whole planet got blown up by the Goa'uld. Then there was the Tok'Ra guy, Martoof. Went all crazy and they had to shoot him, from what I heard, Colonel Carter had to shoot him before he blew up the SGC. There was this other guy that just totally disappeared and then this Ascended guy who did something and got himself descended like Doctor Jackson did and he--"

"Okay, okay. I get the point," Sheppherd said interrupting him. He let out a low whistle. "So I guess that's a no on McKay and her."
