Summary: "I'm not fine." My voice sounds rusty and I wonder where the words came from because it is absolutely the last thing I want to admit to Jack these days. And suddenly, I'm babbling. The dam has burst and I can't seem to shut up. "I keep saying I'm fine but I'm lying - to you, to Sam, to Teal'c, to myself. I'm not fine and I don't know how to fix it."

Whow! I don't know why I've never read this story, it had appeared as a "story of the moment"...Absolutely perfect! Gen or pre-slash, whatever one wants to see, it works both ways. You got Jack and Daniel's voices just right and, while it's emotionally loaded, it doesn't dive into too-sugary smarm (and I should know, I wrote a few of such fics in the old days ;) Thank you for sharing this wonderful piece of work!

Summary: Daniel knows that he's missing something, but he can't quite find the words.

Just "caught" this fic on "Story at the moment"...
The atmosphere is something I felt as "etheral" - like the time is standing still while Daniel contemplates all the recent (not)changes. I like how you wrote Sam; once his "partner in crime", now she's in Jack's shoes, not necessarily liking it all the time. And the very ending, alluding to Daniel's ascended days (if I got it correctly), is very fitting as well as very poignant in its simplicity.
Beautiful writing. Thank you!

I've re-read this story again, and I've been blown away once more... I love your stories, your take on Jack and Daniel's relationship, the perfect characterizations, all the little tiny details of everyday life you always put in, the under-used characters like Lou and Cassie, the must-happen happy ending no matter how much stuff goes against our guys... What I'm trying to say here is that this is one of the best SG-1 fics I've read and I love your writing to bits :)
Thank you.

Author's Response: Wow, thank YOU! You just made my entire decade. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thank you for this fill-in-the-blanks-in-Evolution story! I can never get enough of them, especially when they're as expertly written as yours! To me, Evolution2 was a great ep which could have used an hour more for the actual character interaction, not just action. I know, if I wish upon a star, then maybe...? Hug from overseas :-)

Author's Response: Thank you! I had high hopes for Evolution 2, too and was very disappointed. Hence the writing . Hugs back :)

I was shedding tears when Jack's "proposal" almost landed me on the floor laughing histerically! As always, excellent portrait of the team, with both excellent banter and seriously moving stuff... Thanks! :-)
(I can't help but think that *this* is what that 200th ep should have looked like... How're you at writing TV-scripts? ;-)

Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed it:) Always like to bring on the tears, whether laughing or crying ! TPTB acknowledge Daniel Jackson\'s contribution in a penultimate episode, or even any episode? That\'s when the pigs start flying! WOuld be nice though :). Thanks for the feedback!

Summary: The Stargate program is completely revamped. Daniel's out of a job and Jack's moving to Washington. Set the end of season 8 (more or less).

Oh, I loved it!
In the midst of this sad *situation*, it has brought both tears in my eyes and a smile on my face!
Thank you for the perfect Jack and Daniel!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I glad there was a smile. I was worried that the humor would be lost. I thought, because of who Jack and Daniel are, we needed to smile with them at the end--even if it\'s just a little.

I've re-read this story after a long while, and once again it left me in love with your writing, contemplating this wonderful and rich future you've created for our guys.

There're many storylines hiding within this one (for example, Sam's), and the one unfolding from the moment Jack and Daniel appear in corporeal forms. I hope a plot bunny will take you out to play with it, even after all this time (it's never too late to play in SG-1 sandbox, right?)

Thanks for writing fantastic stories!

Author's Response: Thank you so much, Renenet!!! I got very little feedback on this one - which I expected since it was kind of different *G*, but that just means the feedback I *do* get is like gold. I did actually start a story that explained everything (Sam's story, the whole bit), but about a third of the way in, my muse took a hike. :( I hope for this story, it comes back - I have two SG1 stories partially finished that I'd really like to complete. *fingers crossed* Thanks again!

Summary: After the destruction of Reece, Daniel temporarily joins another SG team in an attempt to distance himself from the android and Jack.

*sniffs and tosses one more soggy tissue onto the floor* Well, what to say? Once more you've struck all the J&D cords with this captivating, emotionally tense and well-written story.
I think I've read all the 'Menace' tags there are, always searching for something at least marginally positive to fill that time before the Meridian, because I refuse to think Jack and Daniel wouldn't reach their peace before it was too late. Your story fits in perfectly, and I thank you for it :)

Author's Response: Aw, Ren, sorry to make you cry :) Thank you for your kind words and you are more than welcome. I, too, refuse to believe they wouldn't 'make peace' with each other.

I've been waiting for you to post here, so I can give a public review :)

I'm an emotional reader; I like to get immersed in a story, play it out in my head, feel like I'm *there*. Many, many stories are really good, but not all can "work" that way for me. So, when a story makes me cry - not just misty eyed a bit, but actually *cry* - it means quality, excellent characterizations, interesting and engaging plot, and it means that the author has found a way to reach out to readers and connect with them via written word. That's what I call talent; so thank you for sharing your talent and ideas through this wonderful, beautifully written story.

Author's Response: Thank you so much, Ren! That's one of the nicest things I've ever heard and so very, very appreciated. I'm so glad it moved you, so glad it connected with you in such a powerful way. Thanks for the wonderful feedback! Lynne

Loved it, loved it! It was like reading a behind-the-scenes story! Such a rarity to find a long(ish) fic about ascended Daniel which fleshes out some of the episodes along the way. Lovely insight into Daniel's mind, and I like your POV on the Others, especially the funny little bits, like the scene at the very end. Thanks & here's hoping to read more from you, soon!
:)

Author's Response: Glad you liked the Daniel POV version of what happened. Good to hear the character perspectives worked for you. Thanks for the feedback!

Ahhh, very, very nice Danny whumper with the rest of the team just at the arm's reach. :)
Seriously, really well written and it came as a suprise that they were all affected, after all. And this "allergic reaction" idea is a food for plot bunnies ;) - how many (bad) things could be out there that a MALP can't detect? Heh heh.
Great job! Thanks!

Author's Response: Thanks! It was sort of challenge to myself to try to limit the dialogue and stress the sensations. Glad you liked it!

Yes!!! Jack with them on the ship! Thank you!!!
(in case it's not clear, I very much liked your story ;)
Uhm... more? Will the moving-ship-thingy really work? Will Cam make a move? Will Sam speak with the guys sometime within the next century?
:) Thanks for sharing!

Author's Response: Thank you :) In answer to your questions - yes, there will be more; I don\'t think the ship moving thing will work (I\'ll have to check but I think it was mentioned in the episode and Sam said it wouldn\'t work); I don\'t know about Cam but maybe; and yes, Sam will speak with the guys but it may take awhile :) Definitely less than a year though .

Ah, babs, another gem! Classical J&D friendship, wohoo! :)
The story reads as a mystery with the intricate plot, not knowing for sure who works for whom, rich, vivid description of the Keeps which makes it alive and palpable. All paralleled by desparate search and rescue by Sam and Teal'c... but it's taking so long and in the end it's months before it's over... In the end you made me care for the people of the Keeps, even for Enak (whom I'd gladly zat at the beginning, lol), and I saw the change best through the children's eyes, through their transformation (especially Aridette) as the events unfolded.
Sorry for the ramble, and thank you for writing and sharing this story!

Wonderful story, Carlyn! I love this "new" Daniel, and this strong connection that he has to Jack, even when he had no idea who Jack was...
While I know that big/cannon Daniel is an indenpendent adult, I also think Jack's move to DC would hit him hard, more so than anyone else, and more than he'd admit, because their relationship is so complicated and their lives so interwined... and this story addresses that aspect brilliantly.
I hope there'll be a sequel? *insert begging eyes* Will Sam find the solution? What will Daniel's decision be?
Thank you for posting!
(and I have to catch up with the List, obviously :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much, Ren. \r\n\r\nI was thinking exactly the same thing regarding the impact Jack\'s absense would have on Daniel. They are so close that after his encounter with the Ori Daniel would only confess his fear to Jack. It seemed natural to me that this younger version of Daniel, who isn\'t yet the independent adult Daniel becomes, would want to keep Jack from leaving him.\r\n\r\nAs for a sequel - yeah, it seems likely. I\'m glad you liked the story well enough to request it. Thanks again for your kind feedback.\r\n\r\nCarlyn

#1: snort. only Jack. ::hugs both::

#2: "...Neither considered going home, both realizing it was better to be together, fighting each other, than alone fighting their respective nightmares. ..." Liked this. It's sort of linked to this line from #3: "...For if members of a team don't trust each other enough to fight openly, how can a stranger trust them?" Ouch.

#3: cracked me up. totally.

#4: Ouch. Jack's words at the end - major Ouch. Oh, Daniel.

#5: I'm sensing a whole new AU'verse here with Daniel moving in with Jack in DC :) Nicely, nicely done. (mmmmm, back rubs)

Thanks for this, it's been a pleasure to read!

Author's Response: Thank you! I had tossed an idea around for doing a "Jack and Daniel in DC" thing, but never did get around to it. Maybe one day. :-)
