Sharon knew a thing or two about dying.

She didn't want to think about how many times a version of her model had been killed and downloaded; it was enough to remember the one that had downloaded all of her own memories just so she could get closer to Helo was Sharon was away from him.

It was enough to remember how many times Boomer had died, only to come and kidnap her daughter and frak Helo right in front of Sharon.

Love, though? Now she knew very little about that. She loved Hera, certainly, and she loved Karl. But then there was Lee, who complicated everything in her life now that they were on Earth -- not that he didn't complicate things beforehand.

Being able to download into a new body was a form of immortality, she supposed, until The Hub was blown up and that ability was taken away from all Cylons. Permanent death. What did it mean? Some of the models thought it was a good thing and brought them all closer to being human, or to God Himself, even.

Sharon liked to think that the one thing that brought her closer to being human was love.

Sure, it was a frakked-up kind of love that she couldn't really figure out, but it was there nonetheless. So even without The Hub, Sharon had the love of her husband, her daughter, and her secret lover. She couldn't make much sense of it all, but it meant she wasn't as much of a "toaster" as everyone had originally thought she was... and that she was capable of so much more than simple Jumps in a Raptor.

She could be more. Sharon just never knew that thousands of years later, when the bones of her daughter were discovered, the immortality of her family would live on in the modern Earth society.

number_eight: (Cylon - An Army of Me)
Once, there was a young girl named Sharon Valerii who fell in love with a man she shouldn't have fallen in love with, discovered she was a Cylon, and shot her Commanding Officer in an attempt to kill him. By accident, of course, but nonetheless, she shot him and everyone hated her for it. She begged and pleaded, trying to get her love back into her life all while she had no clue what her own life meant anymore considering it was filled with Cylon lies.

She was killed, only to resurrect into an exact duplicate of her own body, surrounded by other "model Eights". She screamed, crying for the child she had wanted to have with Chief Tyrol, the life she had planned once, and the man -- Commander William Adama -- that had been her father-figure.

Once, there was a young Cylon without a name, who stole the life of Sharon Valerii and lied willingly to the man who was in love with the girl. She slept with him in an attempt to form a human-Cylon hybrid, only to realize that she was in love with the man, Helo, himself. She was thrown into the brig, the same one that Valerii had been trapped in, only this time the Cylon chose the name "Sharon" for herself as she held on desperately to her child. The humans did not consider her family, and she hated them back once they told her that her daughter had died.

She was killed, only to resurrect into an exact duplicate of her own body, surrounded by other "model Eights" including the one whose life she had stolen. She screamed, crying for the child she had given birth to, the stolen life that was back on board Galactica, and the man -- Admiral William Adama -- who was now her father-figure.

Look at me and tell me who I am, why I am, what I am... )

It all depends on who is the victim and who is the villain in the story.

Once upon a time, there was a girl named Sharon and a Cylon without a past. And in truth, despite their different endings, neither of them found redemption.

OOC: Thank you everyone for reading Sharon here in TM. This is her last post for this community, sadly, but look for her in other ones. Thanks! It's been a blast.
