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.

Other model Eights experienced similar reactions and lives, all longing for love that they could never truly have, all wanting a child (or perhaps the child, Hera), all simply wanting. Trust was not given to them. Most of them died in the great battle before the colonization of the planet now known as Earth.

Sharon, the girl who became a Cylon and was known as Boomer, betrayed all those she loved and kidnapped the young Hera. Sharon, the Cylon who became a girl and was known as Athena, betrayed her entire race and rescued Hera.

Boomer died; Athena lived to have a happy life with Helo, the father of her child.

Boomer had asked Athena to tell Adama that she was sorry, that she wanted forgiveness, but Athena had pulled her sidearm out and killed the wayward Cylon after she had handed a frightened Hera over to the crew of Galactica. There was no redemption for her from her former family, except perhaps in her own mind as she died a permanent death.

Athena's journey was filled with distrust, racism, the loss of her daughter, a marriage, a rape, being forced to watch her husband sleep (unknowingly) with Boomer, and over a year of living in a cell. She was a traitor of a different sort, one who was never forgiven by D'eanna.

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.
