Author's Chapter Notes:
Season Five. Post Menace. The scenario I'm postulating in the beginning of this tale seems unhappily plausible to me given the way I've been watching things develop in the latter part of the fifth season. I hope I've made a strong enough case for Daniel's state of mind 'cause Lord knows I'M bummed out by what I'm seeing! Originally posted to the net 07 July 2002.
