WHISPERED PROMISES

Frodo tried not to listen to its whispers. He knew that it was trying to corrupt him, to take his very soul. He couldn’t stop himself. It promised him everything he’d ever wanted and more. It whispered when he was awake and it whispered when he slept. It murmured whatever he needed to hear.

And it knew his intentions. It knew that his mission was throw it into the fire. He knew that he would never do such a thing to it, but he could never tell anyone that this was true.

It was his ring now, his own precious.

Summary: Delenn made John a better man.

~~~


John Sheridan had heard of someone overflowing with joy before but he’d never understood what that meant until he fell in love with Delenn. Not only did he love her but he felt a new love for all of creation, as if seeing things with new eyes.

This gave him a renewed sense of purpose and that purpose was to do what was right, what needed to be done to free Earth. Loving Delenn did not make him more alien, as Clark’s people claimed. It made him more human.

He needed to be a hero. For Earth and for her.

A SHINING BEACON

“Do you really think Babylon 5 is a beacon shining in the night?” Marcus asked Susan as they searched among the stars for more of the Old Ones. They were hoping they could find some help in the war with the Shadows.

“Yes, I do. We are the light in the darkness to many planets… why are you laughing?”

“Because you sound like an advertisement for Babylon 5. “Come see our shininess and we’ll cure what ails you…”

Susan couldn’t decide whether to laugh or get angry, then he started singing “This Little Light of Mine”.

Angry it was!

Summary: He thinks as he watches her sleep.

~~~

ALL SHE WAS

He watched her sleeping. Her only movement was the gentle rise and fall of her chest as she breathed.

She was beyond reproach, perfection, untouchable!

She was also warm and caring, brilliant and wise. She was human and alien. She made others be more than they thought they were and inspired them to great achievements. She loved her people and served them all as best could. She was both funny and serious, sometimes all at once. She was kind and gentle, yet she could take down a grown man.

She was a daughter, wife and mother.

His wife.

His Delenn.

WITH FEELING

He was playing the violin, but not the discordant noise he usually played. I think he played that godawful racket to annoy me. But tonight he played a lullaby, one of the sweet songs I remembered from my childhood.

“What is the occasion? Tired of driving me mad?” I asked.

“I had word that my mother is dead. She sang it to me and Mycroft when we were small.”

Feeling awful for my sarcastic comment, I expressed my condolences. He looked at me, no emotion on his countenance, and said, “Perhaps I shall feel sorrow if I play long enough.”

OLD AND NEW

People asked him if he enjoyed the modern world, as if he were on a vacation. He had been jerked from one life into the next without his knowledge. He missed the world he came from. He missed the slower pace that life had then. He missed the people he’d come to call friends.

But yes, he did enjoy his new life, his new world. He still had a purpose. He had friends here, too. And even love. There were many great things in this brave new world.

So yeah, he missed the old but he was enjoying the new.

I DIE FREE

Jack O’Neill thought the understood sacrifice and duty until he met Teal’c. As First Prime of Apophis, he held the highest rank a Jaffa could attain. Yet Teal’c was ready to give it all up, even his wife and son if need be, for one thing.

Freedom.

His friend had left everything he’d known to pursue freedom for himself but even more importantly, for all Jaffa. Along the way, he had become Jack’s best friend as well as his comrade-in-arms.

He watched, amazed, as Teal’c stood unafraid before another Goa’uld who threatened his friends and said proudly, “I die free!”

~~~

UNTOUCHABLE

I found out quite by accident. I put my hand on his arm when we’d left his brother at the Diogenes Club. Mycroft had been his usual sarcastic self and Holmes left in a fit of pique. He’d jerked away as if my touch had burned him. I said nothing at all, just got in the hansom with him and rode in silence back to Baker Street.

Once at home, he’d lit up a cigarette and stared out the window for a long while, whether due to Mycroft’s words or my touch, I don’t know.

I won’t touch him again.

RETIREMENT BLUES

Jack O’Neill hated and loved retirement. He hadn’t wanted to join the Stargate program from the beginning. His original mission through the Gate had been a suicide mission and that hadn’t worked out so well. When he’d left, he thought he’d left for good.

Coming back was the best thing he’d done. He’d met so many wonderful people on their missions, Teal’c being the one who meant the most. Daniel had come back home finally.

And there was Samantha. He loved her more than he’d ever tell her.

The only thing missing was a parade. He’d have liked a parade.

LIFE

Jack knew too much to think there was an afterlife. He surely knew there could be life after life after life… Ba’al had shown him that when he killed him and brought him back time after time. Jack figured that if one had reincarnations, he’d used his up already.

He didn’t need an afterlife. Life had been good to him. He’d suffered great sorrow but that just meant he’d known great love. He’d seen and done things most would never believe. Sometimes he still had to pinch himself.

Nope, he didn’t need another life. This one had been just fine.

MEANING OF LIFE STUFF

He could shoot, fight and do all manner of things military but he could not do two things: sing or dance. He had no sense of rhythm and he was tone deaf.

He knew that Samantha was going to ask him to dance with her at the wedding. He just knew it. How could he tell her no? They’d been through so much together for such a long time. Finally he was retired and they could get married and live happily ever after.

Or at least go fishing whenever they wanted to.

Maybe she’d agree to just live with him…

OBVIOUSLY

Holmes watched Watson look over the grisly scene. He already knew who did it. The man who’d contacted them to help solve his wife’s murder had killed her in a fit of rage over something trivial, a button not properly sewn, he believed.

“It is obvious, Watson. Do you know?”

Watson nodded. Holmes often wondered just how intelligent his companion was. He did seem to be teachable. His deductions were better now than at the first.

“I do. Do you?”

“Of course. It is Mr. Muldowney. Who else could it be?” Holmes answered.

Holmes never even noticed Watson’s sly smile.

WITHOUT A PRAYER

He didn’t believe, but that didn’t matter. He knew they prayed for their world as his people had prayed for Gallifrey. He hoped things worked better but in the end, they would all go elsewhere. Their planet would die because they’d used it up – industry, war, greed - these things had taken their toll.

He liked these humans, more than any other of the races he’d met. They were violent and greedy and sometimes, simply stupid, but they had such potential, such a capacity to love and to believe that their lives mattered.

They didn’t have a prayer. Did they?

OLD HABITS

“What?” Mutt asked his father as they waked down the darkened path.

“Shhhh. Be quieter,” Indy whispered back at him.

“Why?”

“Because you never know who or what is listening in.”

Mutt held back a sarcastic retort and quietly followed his father. They were still getting used to this father-son dynamic and Mutt might have been a little better at it than his father was. Marion thought they were both rather hopeless in the relationship department. She was probably right.

“I don’t know who you think is listening. This is the path to the garden in your own back yard.”

MARCUS THE PEST

Ivanova wanted to strangle Marcus. He was a worse pest than she had been to her brother when she was a kid. He was everywhere, never quiet, talking all the time. Blah, blah, blah…

Why didn’t he leave her alone? What was his obsession with her? Not only did he talk in English but he spoke Minbari to her as well.

On and on endlessly!

She had to admit he was rather brave. He’d fought Neroon almost to the death in defense of Delenn, heedless of the threat to himself.

Maybe she’d been hasty. Strangling him might be too much.

~~~

OLD HANDS

His hands weren’t those of an academic. They were dry and scarred from digging in rock and dirt for more than forty years. They were permanently tanned from all those hours in the sun. There were scars from all the perils he’d faced since he’d left home as a teen to fight in the first World War. His fingers were becoming gnarled from arthritis and old age.

Marion smiled and marveled at how gently and tenderly those old hands held their precious burden, his very first grand-daughter, a treasure greater than all the others he’d found.

She loved him so.

“You’ll fill out the reports on my desk.”

Jackson laughed. “You haven’t filled out a report since our first mission. Try again.”

“You’ll go fishing with me.”

“I’d rather fill out reports!”

“As you wish.”

O’Neill got the sheet cake and proceeded to polish it off. He patted his stomach and grinned. “I’ll get those report for you.”

Daniel sighed, “Don’t bother. I’m going.”

The Doctor was seldom wrong, but this time he was. He was sure that Amy, his Amelia Pond, could never give up life with him. He loved her in a way he had loved no other companion, no one, not even River.

The girl who waited, who was born to be his companion, to travel time and space forever with him. That was his Amy. He had restarted time itself for her… or for him so he wouldn’t lose her.

Though she loved him, she loved Rory more. She gave it up for Rory, the man who waited. For her.

OBLIVIOUS

Contempt is his default. Holmes, I mean. He is sure that there is no one anywhere who can even approach his intellect. And he holds it against everyone other than himself.

I’ve met his brother. I thought maybe he would provide a clue to Sherlock’s personality. Mycroft is even more of an ass than Sherlock is.

It’s not the intelligence part that annoys. It’s his disdain. He sniffs at love. He’s oblivious to needs of the flesh, both carnal and otherwise. His one weakness is even annoying because, if anything, that damnable cocaine makes his wit even sharper.

Damn him.

ONE MORE DAY

Not many people knew exactly how much time they had left, John thought as he woke that morning. Not many people wake one day and know that this is the day. He’d had enough time to summon those he loved to come for one last visit. He’d said his goodbyes to all.

He would begin his final journey today, and all he could think of was life!

He had done so much, loved so much, dreamed so much that it was difficult to believe that it was done. He had not expected to wish for more time.

But he did.
