Beta: Solstice Winter to whom I am very grateful for checking my work. Please bear in mind that I am British and, although I have a beta who is living in America, I still use some British idioms and those are all mine (eg, the hob is the top of a cooker!).
Summary: Daniel and Jack start a family but someone is threatening their future
Notes: The story starts in the summer of 2007 after the Ark of Truth and is not quite canon so I suppose it’s AU. Daniel is still nominally part of SG1 as are Sam and Teal’c but they all have other duties/responsibilities but Sam doesn’t go to Atlantis until part 2. Mitchell and Vala often take Major Jennifer Hailey and an archaeologist and linguist named Dr Julian Maynard (my own character) when they go off-world. Jack is head of Homeworld Security but has moved the HQ to Cheyenne Mountain and is living with Daniel, quietly! DADT has been repealed (earlier than in the Stargate World) but they are not broadcasting their relationship. Landry still (nominally as Jack is on-site) runs the SGC with Dr Carolyn Lam as CMO. Siler, Harriman etc will all make appearances in their usual capacities. I have had to fudge Cassandra’s age to fit in with this and am ignoring Continuum for now – as it involves time travel, it could actually happen at any time!:

I tend to do better with characters than with plot so some of this might be a total disaster, buuuuuuuut I think I am better than I used to be at reigning in some of my more ridiculous tendencies. (I mean, not all of them. But some of them.)
*They are not, like, Things That Offend Me. Just, overwhelmingly, Things I Do Not Ship, mixed in with a few things that I do ship with summaries that aren't catching me. Although I did find one Lena and Winn friendship story that I like so far, and there are a few Alex and Kara stories that look promising too.

Summary: His name is Daniel Jackson. Peaceful explorer. Member of SG-1. A month ago, his life was what passed for normal: Jack was an Asgard spaceship, Sam was a prisoner of the Replicator Fifth, they were all about to die. But they didn't. They defeated the Replicators, got Jack back, got Sam back, went home.
He's been lost before.
Not like this.
Notes: AU and missing scenes from "Zero Hour"—S8e4

(My dilemma was that I felt like I had too many relationship tags for the number of words in the story, because there were three people functioning as a friendship unit but also they are friends in unit of two and then suddenly there were a lot of tags which became kind of overwhelming, because my brain is not a brain that functions well with unlimited options and it took a minute to decide that fuck it, I have seen stories that did a worse job of tagging.)
