"Where's Hera?"

"She's at daycare. She's fine, Sharon, calm down."

Sharon wiped the tears from her eyes and shook her head. "I had another dream. Possibly a vision. I have... I have to go and be sure." She took off to check on their daughter, and sure enough, she was fine. Playing alongside little Nicky Tyrol -- scratch that. Hotdog was the father. She shook her head, trying to process it all. She waved to Hera, who waved back and kept on playing, and walked out. She was ready to head home to her husband, then stopped and walked to go see Lee instead.

They ended up frakking.

"He wants to be good about it all, and calm me down. He doesn't understand, though, how many times she's been kidnapped or stolen from me. A year of another woman raising my daughter while I thought she was dead! Boomer kidnapping her right under our noses after she frakked my husband in front of me!" The tears were coming freely as she let her head rest on Lee's chest.

Lee didn't say anything, but she knew he got it. Lee never questioned when Sharon got in her moods like this, and she thanked him for it. Karl would have tried to calm her down, tell her how Hera would always be safe, but Lee knew the truth.

Their world was never safe.

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.

You have a free pass from the gods, a one time "get out of jail free" card. You can do one thing, one horrible or evil thing, and not only will you not be punished, but no one will know it was you. Will you take it?

[Locked to [livejournal.com profile] arrow_of_apollo]

If there was a way that I could be with you somehow, in some way, where Helo and Hera would never know about it? Where I could frak you in public if I wanted, where I could tell you how I feel... where I could be honest with everyone on this planet about you and me? And I wouldn't get in trouble, no one would be hurt, our lives would be back to "normal" the next day?

I'd do it.

I shouldn't. I shouldn't want to, either, I should want to do the right thing but God, I am tired of always doing the right thing. Can't I do something selfish for once? Can't I stop thinking about my family and just think like Kara? Be like Kara and grab what I want? I want you. I don't know why. I don't even know what we are, Lee, but I want to stop hiding it.

I want to stop lying to my family, or having you lie to yours.

I want... us. Whatever "us" means. I want to look the Old Man in the eyes and tell him that his son has been frakking a toaster for a long time now, and watch him laugh at it.

It can't happen, though, can it? It's just hopes and dreams, and even though we're here on Earth and we're all starting over, not all of us can truly start over.

Can we?

"Sometimes the best things that happen are those we don't plan for. Chance encounters are never accidents. Fate brings certain people together for specific reasons."

She didn't know if she should be thankful or not to Lee Adama.

Sharon guessed that, despite it all, she should be. If not for him, she wouldn't have had any new clothes or furniture in the cell of hers that was slowly becoming a pretty nice home - or at least, personal quarters that she could live with. A chair, new pants and a shirt... Sharon was ready to ask him for a tea set just to see what he would do (or rather, what he'd ask her to do for it).

Sharon's baby was dead. She was pushing Helo away from her in her anger and depression, and was frakking Lee Adama in her cell instead. Lee, the one human who hated her completely.

Sharon's mission on Caprica had been simple -- frak, everything back then had been simple then. She'd gotten Helo to fall in love with her, she'd gotten pregnant, and it had all been planned. Helo, though, had taken her back with him to the fleet and she'd run into Lee Adama who'd tried to kill her on site. He wasn't part of her plan or mission. Her sister Cylons would have hated her even more than they did if they knew what she was doing, but Sharon couldn't help but feel that maybe, just maybe, this was part of God's Plan. She wasn't fooled into thinking that God's Love needed to be spread the way the Sixes seemed to think, but still... her plan had been to get Helo to love her. And now, by some twist of Fate (or God's Plan?), she was on her knees, pleasuring Lee as the only way she could think of in order to get her cell furnished.

[Letter written to [livejournal.com profile] callsign_helo but destroyed and never sent]


I'm not the person you think I am. I don't think I ever was, actually. Back on Caprica, I lied to you in order to get you to fall in love with me and it worked. Why? Why did it work? Why did you stay with me? You shot me when you found out I was a Cylon, but you could have killed me. You didn't. Why not? Did you really love me that much? I hope so. I'd like to believe that, at least.

I love you. I love you so much because you've always believed in me somehow. You've trusted me, you helped me get our daughter back from the Cylons after everything that President Roslin did, you stayed with me. You stayed with me while I was in hack, you pushed at me during that year until I agreed to marry you, you mourned the "loss" of our daughter alone because I pushed you away from me. But, you pushed back and I had to let you in. How could I refuse? You loved me. You still love me, no matter how selfish I can be at times.

I don't deserve you. I love you, Karl, with my whole life and I always will, but I have to tell you the truth.

I don’t want you to hurt... )

OOC: Takes place after THIS THREAD between Kara and Sharon.

It hadn't taken much time to get to Lee's office without an appointment. Helo had known Sharon was going to be out late with Kara, so he wasn't exactly suspicious, either. He was still at home, taking care of Hera.

Sharon was completely drunk, though, and determined to at least talk to Lee about the lunch they'd had with Kara, Sam, and Leoben.

As she was buzzed into Lee's office on the grounds that she had some "very important" information to tell him regarding new intel on Cylon/human relations, she shut the door behind her and looked at him across the desk. She slammed her hands down, hard, on the wood and stared him right in the eyes.

"We need to talk about the other day, Lee. Kara and Leoben know." She was drunk, but she was still rational enough to know that there was no need to play games when it came to this.

Sharon had been enjoying the comforts of her new chair and clothes, but frankly, it wasn't enough. She knew it was only a matter of time until Lee Adama showed up again, trying to interrogate her for information that she didn't have in exchange for whatever compromise the two of them could come up with.

By her counting, he arrived with the Corpsmen approximately two days later.

She'd been in the middle of some push-ups when the door opened and Lee told the Corpsmen to wait outside of the cell. Sharon stood and grabbed a towel that she'd been given, wiping herself down with it, as she looked over Lee.

"So, does this mean that you've come to negotiate for more? Or are you here under your father's orders?" If he had come of his own free will, she wasn't sure what she would do. Even Helo had stopped coming by, which had made her cry for a few hours from the loneliness, until she realized it was all her own fault.

"I could use some books," she added casually.

Kara was dressed in her uniform for the first time in several weeks. It felt strange after so much time in civilian clothes, but she found she was glad to put it on. Kara was a soldier, and while she'd always been a bit unpredictable, there were aspects to military life she enjoyed. The familiarity of something as simple as dress was actually somewhat welcome at the moment, when her entire life felt like it was in such upheaval.

Despite everything that had happened--finding Earth, defeating the Cylons--Kara had to fight back the feeling of impending doom, as if it was all going to be snatched away from her. She was pretty sure it wasn't just her--she wasn't the only one who went outside at night and stared at the night sky, wondering if any of the cold lights above marked the approach of a Cylon basestar--but, as with everything, Kara felt it with an intensity that left her occasionally moody and tense. Having something to do that wasn't working on the house or painting, it was good for her. She'd been nervous about getting her orders, but she shouldn't have been; as she'd thought, the Admiral had told her that she'd be flying a few recon missions, doing some routine patrols in her Viper, but that her primary job would be training new recruits.

Are you grounding me, Sir? she'd asked, standing at attention, not entirely sure if her smile was genuine or forced. It was hard to tell, sometimes, even for her.

I'm giving you a chance to live your life, Adama had said in his gravel-rough voice. As...interestingly...as you've chosen to live it.

She should have expected that. Her domestic arrangements weren't a secret, after all, and she knew it wasn't going to be easy when she went back to work. Everyone had an opinion, and she was pretty sure she was going to hear about it.

Kara had saluted without saying a word. She pushed back the old longing she had, that desperateness for the Admiral's approval, and had simply taken her orders without comment. (There was a first time for everything, after all.) On her way out of the building that housed the provisional government, she saw a familiar figure ahead of her. Smiling, Kara rushed to catch him, forgetting for a moment everything that lay between them. "Hey, Lee. Or do I have to call you Mr. Vice President, now?" Kara teased, falling into step beside him.

Lee and Kara re-connect, Sam & Leoben are domestically cute with Kara, a surprise dinner is had, and Sharon confesses to Kara that she's having an affair with Lee... )

Myself, obviously.

No, that’s not true. It's a little of both.

I've lied to myself first and foremost in terms of how I've felt about Lee. All the times that we frakked and I'd tell myself that no, that's all it was, it was frakking and so it didn't mean anything, I was wrong. If it didn't mean anything, then I would've been able to stop it a long time ago. If it didn't mean anything, then I wouldn't have felt so guilty every time that I held Hera in my arms or made love to my husband.

Karl deserves better than me, but I'm selfish. I don't want to give up the love I have with him on the chance that whatever it is that I have with Lee might be, well, something.

But I've been a great liar to my friends, too.

I'm sorry, Kara. I'm sorry that all this time I've lied to you, too. How can you have this relationship with Sam and Leoben that works like this? I don't get it. I don't, because I'm jealous. Who would have thought that of the two of us, you'd have the working, happy relationship and I'd be the one who was lying to everyone? I'm jealous that you know what you want and you're not afraid of telling people anymore.

I don't know what I want. No, that's another lie.

I want you, Lee. But I don't love you and that is what is frakking up my head right now. You ruined my life. I let you ruin my life because it was what we both wanted. Wants, needs, desires, but never common sense.

Kara, please don't tell Karl. I know your pretty much his best friend and you guys go way back, but please don't. I don't have the life you have, and I never will.

And Lee? Go home to Dualla. She's better for you than some Cylon who is still lying to herself.

I was running.

It was one of those feelings that I enjoyed once I was finally out of that cell. I was part of the Colonial Fleet, and so jogging through the hallways of Galactica gave me a sense of freedom. Helo knows. It's not that I can't fall asleep; it's that I don't want to be confined anymore.

[Locked from Helo]

And then I ran into Lee, drunk, in the pilots' rec room. I don't know what got over me; it was so idiotic, really. I was upset, trying to prove a point that I wasn't Boomer, that I was Sharon. Athena. Someone he could trust. I was so frakking tired of everyone saying things behind my back, and so I decided to try to talk to him.

All I wanted was for him to say my name. To realize that I was just as human as he was.

"You're human? Well, now you definitely get to feel like a human. Don't worry. You haven't had it like this-- but you're gonna love it."

In his drunkenness, I recalled everything from the rape and ran away from him. I couldn't stop crying. Why? Why had he done this to me? I had taken a belt and wrapped my wrists with it, just to show him how much I trusted him not to hurt me, and then he went and did this to me. Why?

"You trusted me. You gave someone a little precious piece of yourself, and they tried to kill it, just to make it hurt. Welcome to being human... Sharon."

We argued, I cried, and then he begged me to hurt him. As if taking out some revenge on him would make up for what he had just tried to do to me, or how he'd always felt about me. No. No, I couldn't do that. Sure, I backhanded him once, but it wasn't hard. There was nothing in it, despite my anger at him.

And then we frakked.

God, sometimes I hate you, Lee, for what you did to my life. Sometimes I hate you for what you did to me that night. And then sometimes, I remember that there wouldn't be an "us" at all if there hadn't been all that pain to begin with.

I'm still not sure what to do. About practically anything.

I got lucky. Really lucky that I not only found Helo and fell in love with him, but that he fell in love with me. And now we have this beautiful daughter who I would die for (and in fact, I have once), and life is just... perfect.

There have been bumps along the way, sure, like getting thrown into hack and having Hera taken away from me. That was probably one of the worst things that's happened to me recently.

And then there's Lee.

It all happened when I flew him over to Colonial One on my Raptor. He was a civilian, and I was still in the fleet, and we frakked. One last time, and we knew it was wrong and that it wasn't love, and then he was gone. He went off to live his life and I went back to my husband and daughter and lied to them both about how everything was fine.

But then with Hera... God, what was I supposed to do? That Six was going to hurt her, I know she was, and so I shot her. Getting thrown into hack, though, I didn't know what to do because Helo was gone. The Old Man pointed that out to me quite clearly in his quarters, that it was my fault, that my husband was in jeopardy, that I couldn't have Hera.

So I turned to Lee. Scuttlebutt had it that he'd been doing well as a voice of reason, and he had managed to get frakking Baltar acquitted. Anyone who thinks differently is fooling themselves – it was Lee on the stand. I just figured that he'd know something that would help me. Something that could save me from a hearing. Strangely enough, he came and visited me in the brig and said he'd work on it.

It's not love.

I don't know what this is, this strange connection that we have, but it's not love. I love Karl. I love my daughter, and I am not going to frak that up simply because Lee Adama – excuse me, President Lee Adama – somehow turned my entire world upside down and then walked right out of it.

I had assumed he was going to stay, I guess. Which was wrong, naturally, since at every moment I'd done my best to push him back to Dee or back to Kara. Anything to get him the frak away from me. So he left, and I should have been happy, right? I finally managed to push the great Apollo away, out of military life into one where I wouldn't see him. I could go back to my husband and daughter and forget that any of this had ever happened and that right there was another assumption.

I can't. I can't go back. I look into Karl's eyes and it hurts me to know what he has given up for me and how I've betrayed him while at the same time, I need Lee. I miss Lee. I'd hoped he missed me, too, so it was a huge relief when he told me that he did, but still…

It's wrong.

And God help me, I still want what is wrong all while I won't give up my perfect life. Is that selfish of me? Naturally, but at the moment, I don't give a frak.

I want it all.

OOC: Takes place after THIS THREAD

Two months. Well, almost two months. Far past the time that Sharon had expected to be away from Hera. Tensions were mounting on the Demetrius, and then all hell had broken loose.

She remembered grabbing Kara and putting her in a chokehold so the mutiny could continue. It wasn't even a question of if she should do it or not -- Sharon, as the only Cylon onboard was the strongest one and pretty much the only one who could physically take down Kara if need be. Nothing had been discussed, but Helo was about to take over command of the ship when Sam shot Felix and... and that was it.

Next thing she knew, she was flying Kara in a Raptor along with that damn Leoben.

She always did act before she really thought things through.

Which was why, she supposed, it shouldn't have surprised her that she had made the jump in the middle of the fleet without the Demetrius, only to have to listen alongside Kara as a Six spoke about uniting the Cylons and humans together. The world was going to hell, and it was just getting worse.

Then Hera was lost. Time was slipping from her mind, but those pictures... the ones Hera had made... she had to shoot the Cylon. It was the only way to save Hera.

She always did act before she really thought things through...

After the Old Man yelled at her, her thoughts turned to the one man she hadn't thought of in all that time she'd been away. Lee. Maybe... maybe Lee could help her, somehow.

He never saw her. Never kept his promise, but then again, Kara had miraculously come back from the dead, the Cylons had found them, and their whole world had been twisted around all over again.

Once things had calmed down, Helo told her that Lee was quitting the military for good. Part of her was glad, because she realized that she would never have to worry about CAP rotations that he would schedule just so they could be together. Of course, part of Sharon wasn't, because it meant a civilian life for Lee.

She would never see him again... and wasn't that what she wanted? Dee and Lee apparently ended their marriage, so she would never find out the truth, and as for Helo? Well, there was a team he was putting together secretly, and he'd asked her to be part of it. So, Sharon would be with her husband, Lee would be free, they would be apart...

Wasn't that what she wanted?

"So, I pulled a few strings and I'll be your Raptor pilot to take you over to Colonial One," Sharon told Lee, all business, but quite aware of the people that would be waiting for a proper send-off once they got to the hangar bay.

"Are you ready?"

Sharon had done a good job lying to her husband while both she and Lee were "trapped" for two days on the cargo ship. She'd talked to Helo and Hera over the wireless a few times, thanks to Admiral Adama being understanding, and Lee had done the same with Dee.

Then, the world fell apart.

The trial against Gaius Baltar was set to begin, and Lee, for reasons she didn't understand, had decided to assist the defense. It didn't matter though, she kept telling herself, because they were back onboard Galactica and Hera was there. Life could go back to normal.

One day, though, Helo had come back to tell Sharon that Lee was being referred to as "Mister Adama". No one really seemed to know what was going on, but Sharon saw Dee later that day looking... well, upset, definitely. Sad? A little bit. But she wasn't about to go up to her fellow crewmember and ask, "So, did your husband tell you about us?"

After all, there wasn't an "us" to discuss. Right?

Still, it didn't stop Sharon from cornering Lee while the deliberation was going on. She was still a little shaken from her shared dream - vision? - with Caprica and President Roslin. Hera was being looked at again by Cottle. She knew she didn't have a lot of time, but the other fellow, Lampkin, was busy talking to Gaius Baltar.

"Hey." It wasn't the best way to start, but Sharon didn't know what to say. She looked around nervously and sighed. "What happened? Did she figure it out? Or did you finally confess?" Either way, it made him a better person than she was, she figured.
