Download or stream a sample of a podfic of Jigsaw by Dira Sudis.
Author's summary: Jack wakes up in the SGC to the news that his team is dead. If he weren't hearing the news from General Hammond he might not believe it--and even so it's not quite real until he sees the bodies. Once he does, he knows nothing is ever going to be the same again.
Sam wakes up in the SGC to the news that she is now the senior member of SG-1. Jack O'Neill is dead. For Sam and her team, nothing is ever going to be the same again.
SG-1 might be able to go on like this--Sam's going to keep her team together if it kills her--but a man who's lost his team is capable of anything, and Jack's about to do the unthinkable to make things right.
Inspired by Jigsaw by Dira Sudis (dsudis).
Content note: also contains brief thoughts of suicide.
Reader's note: I love this story and I wanted the challenge of a really long fic. This may have been more challenge than I really needed, but six months later, I still love the story, so it was probably worth it. :)
