Title: Family Matters (originally Family)
Author: Pip (dannysgirlsg1)
Summary: Changes happen, boundaries are pushed, and a family learns not all things are certain, while some things definitely are.
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers/Warnings: Prometheus Unbound, 100 Days, Avalon P.1 for specific events. This is an AU fic starting from the end of season eight, but I have every intention of tying as much canon into the story that is possible, so the whole of seasons 9 and 10 are fair game. Ships included Daniel/Vala and Cam/Carolyn, with later additions of original characters.

A/N: So after much debating on the subject, I've decided to give my very first fanfiction, Family, a makeover. The original storyline died for me over a year ago, and I just couldn't seem to find any inspiration for it. Plus, it being my first fanfiction, it was FULL of horrible beginners errors and bad writing techniques. Every time Family was brought to my attention, I shunned it. After being inspired to write DV fanfiction, however, I realized I COULD work on the story if I add ONE KEY CHARACTER to it (everybody's favorite former space pirate!). The only problem was, like I said, I hated where the story was going plot wise and the story itself, i personally feel, is terrible. My only choice was to give it a massive rewrite.

Which I have now done!

So for anybody who read the original version, you FINALLY get something for the fic that has long since been abandoned. And for all my avid DV readers who never glanced at Family, here's a new piece of work for you to sink your teeth into! Hope everyone enjoys! If any cares to read the original, I am keeping it up here on . You can find it in my profile.

Additional Note: Chapter 1 is the only one I kept from the original version, because it was short enough to not be obvious cliche first writing.

Chapter 1

Sam quickly made her way down the halls of the SGC. Her home. She had spent eight years here. She had seen so much happen in these halls. And now, she was throwing it all to the wind.

Making sure her final stop was deserted, Sam quietly stepped into the darkened office. Carefully walking to the desk, she switched on the lamp. The clutter on top made her smile. But as quick as it came, it was gone.

'Now is not a good time to waste, Sam. Just do it, and go!'

She made her way around to the other end, and gently laid down the envelope she had been holding, as well as three beautiful roses - one white, one red, one yellow.

Coming back around the desk, she stopped to take one last glance at the room. There were medals and awards adorning the walls. But, there were also signs of her family, as well as the one before Jack joined the program. Her gaze settled on one picture in particular. It was the four of them laughing at last year's Christmas party. She smiled.

Wow, what a family we...NO! Come on Sam, you made your choice! Now, lets go! She cursed herself for letting her mind wander.

Flicking off the light, Sam quietly exited the room, and hastily made her way to the surface. There, Pete was waiting for her. As she climbed in, she gave one last look to her home. Her ex-home. The car sped off.
