We, the Sparky Army, decree 2008 to be the Year of the Spark. We pledge to post a new sparky story or chapter of a sparky story every day from January 1, 2008 to December 31, 2008. Though the Powers the Be have removed Elizabeth Weir from the regular cast of Stargate Atlantis, we feel that she remains an integral part of the show, and that the relationship between her and John Sheppard is too obvious to be ignored. We hope that you, and anyone might happen to read these works, agree.

And if that isn't official enough for you, we don't know what is. Seriously, guys, we're just trying to have some fun--and show TPTB that Sparky is the way to go. So sit back and enjoy the 366 stories coming your way!

Note from Author (Mama Jo): I'm not no poet, but this came to me at three-o'clock in the morning and I couldn't sleep until I wrote it down. I hope you enjoy!

Elegy

By

Mama Jo

In my dreams I

See her.

On our balcony

She stands,

Wind gently stroking

Her hair.

She looks at me

And smiles,

As her lips shape

My name.

She fades into

The night.

I reach out but she

Is gone.

Salt tears wet on

My cheeks.

I wake and cry

Her name:

"Elizabeth!"
