"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.

No man is worth his salt who is not ready at all times to risk his body, to risk his well-being, to risk his life, in a great cause. - Theodore Roosevelt

I know I'm not worth much of anything these days. Let's face it; I betrayed the only family I ever had on Galactica, I hurt Galen who I loved so much and betrayed his trust, and I shot the Old Man.

I risked everything, all because I was a frakking idiot, listening to Cavil and his lies about Ellen, about Hera, and about me. I snuck onboard Galactica, impersonated Athena, tied her up after I beat the frak out of her, and then I frakked her husband right in front of her.

What sort of soldier does that make me?

Read more... )

I died three times, at the hands of soldiers who I had trusted. Third time's the charm, right?

I deserved it, though. I wasn't a soldier. I never fought for a cause or was willing to give my life; I was always too frakking scared of the truth. No, I deserved to let Athena kill me.

Maybe, in the end as she handed Hera over to Helo and pulled the trigger, that was my cause.

"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 [ 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?

1. How much is your mother’s fault? I don't have a mother, so I wouldn't know. I'm a Cylon, so I guess it's my fault. Although if you want to get technical, whoever actually initially designed the Cylons should be at fault, so I guess that goes back to humanity. So really, it's your fault.
2. Do you have an “inner child”? Karl says so. It doesn't feel like it around here sometimes, though.
3. Polkas: Joyful dance or just plain dotty? Er... what? I don't even know what that is. If it's a dance, that's a frakking sorry excuse for a name.
4. Why didn’t Jesus turn the water into beer? Because it wasn't what the One True God wanted His Son to do.
5. If you had multiple personalities, do you get to add up all their IQ’s for your total score? Is this a joke? I'm a Cylon. Do you know how many Number Eights there are out there right now? I keep running into different models of me on a daily basis. I don't have multiple personalities, just multiple mes.
6. The Big Bang Theory: Fascinating science or just wondering if you’ll lose your virginity? If you're talking about evolution versus creation, then yes, it's fascinating in the sense of all of this has happened before and it will all happen again. No matter what God or gods you believe in, no matter if you have faith or science on your side.
7. If you arrest a mime, does he still have the right to remain silent? On Galactica, no one is ever silent in the brig. No one.
8. If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around, do the other trees laugh? I would. Then again, I'd probably be projecting the falling tree...
9. Should Disney make animated porn? Should who? What?
10. Is Satan self-possessed? Who is Satan in this scenario? Gaius Baltar? I'm going to say he's obsessed and self-everything. The man's pure ego.
11. What is the level of importance that elevates a guy getting shot to an assassination? If he fraks around with anything political or with the military. Basically, don't piss off Roslin or the Old Man, ever. Or for that matter, anyone with the last name of Adama.
12. What happens if a baby falls into the Fountain of Youth? Does it disappear? Not unless it drinks the water, I guess. Seriously, this is a question?
13. Do vegetarians still bring home the bacon? Yes. Trust me, when you've been living on a battleship and you're lucky to get algae as food for years on end? Yes, they most definitely do.

"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.
