"Hera, no!"

Sharon screamed the words out, then took a deep breath. Shouting at her daughter wouldn't do any good; it would just scare the frak out of her. Where was Helo? "Karl? Karl, I need your help, Hera's got..."

Somehow, Sharon had been careless, and Hera was playing with her sidearm like a toy.

"Okay, honey, give that to Mommy. Don't play, okay? I'll..." Frak, she'd what, exactly? "Baby, it's not a toy."

Huge brown eyes looked up from the floor at Sharon, and then a little-girl-smile appeared. Thank God they were in their personal quarters, Sharon realized, and not the daycare on Galactica. If Hera accidentally shot Sharon, that was one thing. She could just download into another body and she'd be fine; if the shot went out anywhere else in the ship...?

Sharon got on all fours and started crawling slowly to her daughter. "Baby....? Hera, honey, give Mommy the gun." Panic hit her as she realized that they weren't anywhere near a Resurrection Ship, so if she was shot, she couldn't download.


Her arms were shaking as she reached out to try and take the sidearm from her daughter, and then Hera cheerfully handed it to her like it was nothing. Sharon was about to breathe a sigh of relief, until Hera stood up and walked on chubby legs to their locker, opening it up and pointing to their Galactica uniforms.

Why couldn't she ever have a normal life? With a normal daughter and husband, somewhere on Earth (if they could ever find it)?

"Because you're not normal, you frakked-up Cylon," she muttered to herself as she kissed Hera on the head and locked everything back up again.

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.

"Hi. I'm a Cylon."

That's pretty much all I need to do, frankly. Granted, we managed somehow to make a truce with the Cylons thanks to our acting President, but I don't think it has gotten rid of the blatant racism that is still on Galactica, and frak, the whole fleet.

I guess in a way, I can understand why President Roslin lied to me about Hera's death. If people had found out about her, who knows what would have happened? As it was, Helo told me that there was a D'Anna model that had tried to get in to see me and Hera after she'd been born, when D'Anna was still pretending to be some sort of correspondent trying to bring news about the men and women of our ship to the rest of the fleet.

Things have come a long way. I mean, back on Caprica, when Helo first found out, he shot me. Funny thing was, he didn't shoot me to kill me, he just injured me. Maybe it was because there was something there between us the whole time? I don't know. And then Kara. Kara tried to kill me, too, as soon as she saw me, but Helo stopped her. Right after that, it was Lee's turn to try to kill me, and then President Roslin did her famous "out the airlock" threat.

A Cylon and a human in love? Impossible. Yet that was what had happened between Sharon and Helo on occupied Caprica during her mission to try and get him to love her. She had no idea how deep his feelings had gone; only that he had been very good friends with the Eight known as Sharon "Boomer" Valerii. But love? He had loved her, and stayed away because of her relationship with the Chief? It had been impossible to know that.

Impossible to conceive a child, and yet they had. Impossible that the child would survive childbirth. Impossible that after a year in prison, Sharon would be granted the status of Lt. Junior Grade in the Colonial Fleet – the first Cylon to knowingly be accepted.

Impossible that her daughter would survive the destruction of New Caprica, and that Sharon would in turn be able to recover her from the Cylon Basestar. Impossible that the plan she and her human husband plotted would work, and that neither of them would be sent to the brig. Impossible that Sharon would share visions of the Opera House with Caprica and President Roslin.

All of the impossible feats could be attributed to her non-human nature, most likely, but the one thing she was the most proud of – the one thing that was the most impossible of them all – was not Cylon in the least.

Sharon Agathon had the most normal of marriages and lives aboard Galactica.

She could remember looking at her daughter and noticing how tiny she was.

It had been such a long, hard road to get there, and Sharon had never expected to fall in love, forget her mission, betray her race, and become the only Cylon to ever be able to conceive a half-human, half-Cylon child. Normally, it would be a cause for celebration, but not for her.

She could survive the rape. She could survive the endless probings to extract blood from her unborn child in order to save the life of a woman who wanted her dead. She could survive the looks from the humans as they passed by her cell even after she had risked everything to save the lives of everyone when the Cylons attacked.

Then, Hera died. Tiny, innocent Hera. She pushed aside Helo, the only one who believed in her, because the anguish consumed her. Who could understand the death of a child? Or, a better question – who would bother to understand the death of a child from a Cylon?

Eight is the loneliest number, not One )

Sharon was alone in her suffering and practically relished it. No one noticed a Cylon alone in its sorrow and tears.

She closed her eyes to the world and wondered why she'd bothered to name her dead daughter after one of the humans' gods…

It's going to sound morbid, but I would have wanted to be there when Cally shot Boomer.

Now, hear me out on this. I can pull so many memories from Boomer already, so when there are things like the feelings she had for Chief, the first time that she I met Kara, things like that? They're there. I remember and feel them all, so it's no use trying to go back to those times. What more would I learn from it?

Even when she shot Admiral Adama, I just… I can't. I can't go back to that. I know in my head and my heart that it wasn't me, but if I had been there, would I have stopped it? Could I have stopped it? I know who I am, and I have no programming that I know of. I think it would just break my heart to watch it.

But on Kobol, when I was still a prisoner leading everyone through the woods, I remember that moment when I proved myself to Admiral Adama. I handed the weapon I had been given over to him without any hesitation. I'd asked Helo to trust me, and he did – also without hesitation. But that moment would not have happened if I hadn't been told what had happened to Boomer onboard Galactica. If I hadn't been told how they had shot her, how Cally had been sent to sit in hack for "discharging a firearm" instead of murder (as it should have been), well…

Cally and I have our differences. I doubt there's anyone who would disagree about that. Threats, tears, anger. She hates the Cylons and for that reason alone, she hates me.

For killing Boomer, despite my own feelings to her, I hate her right back.

But I would want to be there, in that line of humans yelling at her and throwing objects, asking for her death. I would want to pull Cally away so that Boomer wouldn't download and eventually try and kill Hera while I was risking everything to save my daughter.

I suppose the real reason is that I would want to be there so that maybe, just maybe, I could give Boomer a chance at a life. At the one she thought that she already had.

The way I was given one.
