I liked this a lot. I really enjoyed how you weaved in the themes of comfort, family and home throughout and though the end is predictable and little saccharine it still fits.
Nice.

Who ordered a Stargate spoof anyway? I know I didn't. This was funny and I laughed.
But I fear for the actual ep. this should not be part of the show's universe.

Author's Response: It\'s all in good fun. I prefer serious Stargate eps myself, but I think the actual episode might me a lot of fun :) Thanks for reading.
