    Summary

    And then it hit him, what he really wanted with all this, with all his plans. He didn't want all those those promises over the years unspoken anymore.

    Summary

    "Just let me say this. I have to say this. For me."

    One of these times, Jack thinks, she's gonna come over and I won't be mid-something. Last time, he was grilling. This time, he's intent on drinking away the day--even if it takes all night.

    But luck was never his strong suit. Not when it comes to this. To them. To her.

    Carter in his living room is not part of the usual "brink of annihilation" routine. For Jack, it's become second nature. Step 1, buy too much beer. Step 2, takeout. Step 3, grocery store cake and the soothing Americana of Simpsons perfection.

    Her visit infringes on Step 4, drown sorrows in creature comforts and just be glad you're alive. And that's dangerous. Because if he's not distracting himself with Step 4, his brain will certainly wander to Step 5, thinking about the forbidden. The locked away. The never-gonna-happen.

    Namely, her.

    But it's different this time. She made it different.

    Summary

    There's a little space between them on the bed. Small enough to be close, but enough space to remind them where the line should be. (tag for Death Knell.)

    Summary

    He doesn't call her and tell her he's making omelets with beer, they don't have stupid bets to see who can finish a crossword puzzle the fastest, he doesn't invite her to go fishing, and they rarely even end up in the commissary at the same time.

    (set around the events of 8.18, "Threads".)
