Recently had some random inspiration for SG-1 one-shots. Also some holiday request fics that I am just getting around to posting.This is meant to be post-Season 10 but there are no spoilers. Just sort of assumes an ending to the Ori conflict.


The Borrower


Daniel turned at the sound of his name, then blinked in surprise when he found Teal'c glowering from the doorway. The Jaffa's tone had been as placid as ever, but his expression was clearly far from calm. He stalked into Daniel's office and crossed his arms, glaring.

"Teal'c…?" the archaeologist asked uncertainly.

"ValaMaldoran has asked to borrow my iPod again," he said darkly.

Daniel sighed. "She likes music."

"As do I," Teal'c replied, his eyes narrowing further in a show of annoyance.

"You don't have to let her use it, you know," Daniel pointed out.

"If I do not, she will become irritating," he said.

Daniel rubbed his eyes with the tips of his fingers. "So…what do you want me to do?"

"Christmas is approaching," Teal'c reminded him.

Daniel's eyes widened. "You--you--want me to buy Vala an iPod for Christmas?!"


"Isn't that a little expensive for a gift between friends and co--" he broke off, gulping at Teal'c's expression and his sharply raised eyebrow. "You're--you're gonna kill her if she keeps borrowing your iPod, aren't you?"

"I have considered it," he said.

"Well, all right, look. I'll get her one. Just--let her keep it until Christmas, okay?" he asked hopefully.

"Very well," Teal'c agreed, offering a deep bow. Then he turned and strode out of the room, leaving Daniel to stare after him in disbelief.

"Why do I even bother…?"
