He hoped the TARDIS might have mistranslated. "Riding you say?"

His Companion nodded happily.

"On... horses?" Which was a tad redundant since they were standing outside a stable, but really now, there were countless more interesting ways to die. Perhaps she had meant elephants or cephalopods or something with a little less speed and a little more brains. Which made him wonder if somewhere (or somewhen) they might have gotten around to breeding riding sheep, because if you were looking for a right dearth of brains they'd give horses a run for their money. Racing sheep, now there's a thought...

He could never find the words to explain, eventually he stopped trying. Humans had too rigid a grasp of time, confined to sailing across the oceans he swam in. Time was only linear as he lived it; a scattered handful of breaching leaps into existence as they knew it. The past, the future, none of it more substantial than the memories he took away. But they clung to the surface, even Jack, stubbornly demanding to see the horizon. Where are we going? Where have we been? If he could only make them see... it was all just waves and water.

"Did you know you can taste time?" The Doctor raised his glass, peering curiously at the merlot. He grinned when Rose raised an eyebrow. "Well, not taste, not exactly, more of a smell come to think of it."

"And that's a royal 'you' to boot." Jack tipped his half-empty glass in salute, "Some of us make do with only five senses you know." Rose laughed and leaned over to clink glasses in human comradery.

"You aren't missing much," the Doctor sniffed the wine experimentally. "Smells like Siberia, time does, full of ice and snow and barren nothingness."

"Good to know."

Outside the TARDIS lay a tumbling horizon of ice and rock, stars obscured by toxic mist spun from sunlit surfaces. The only sounds the pops and hissing moans as the ground beneath fell prey to warmth. If he'd a Companion, they'd have said something suitably human, but he was between Companions and had to fill the silence himself.

Instead he gazed out into the hazy sky. It was whimsy more than anything that brought him here, an impulsive desire to thwart the universe's expectations, however minor. So when all the world looked up at Halley's Comet, the Doctor looked down.

SUMMARY: Looks can be deceiving...


They came through the gate like conquerors, guns held in lazy confidence, smiles backed by controlled aggression. Not fearless, no, but unafraid. Walking into town as if they'd every right to trod the common grounds. The Mother's Mothers held quick council, granting the four traveler's rights two steps before they first breached marked ground.

The Sisters council was not amused.

Three hours later when the Mother's Mothers realized the four had nothing worth trading and the smallest one would never stop talking, they revoked the rights and set them back upon the common grounds.

The Sisters, wisely, muffled their laughter.

SUMMARY: There's a power in names...


She wasn't Wendy, but she never had been; that much she could remember. Whatever name she'd worn, whatever life she'd lived before these shadowed years, it had all been traded away for the threadbare immortality that clung to her skin like cobwebs.

She'd spent a day once trying on names, but none of them fit. Helen was too small and Clarabelle too wide. Miriam, Amy, Shea, they rolled from her tongue and slid off her skin like raindrops, puddling at her feet. She shrugged and left them there; still human enough to feel the loss, but not enough to care.

"So you're saying you aren't an alternate Jeanie," John stared at the new arrival in amused disbelief. "You're an alternate Rodney?"

"Wait, wait, I'm a girl?!" Rodney looked up from the piece of ancient tech apparently responsible for the new arrival, and stared at Rose in dawning horror.

"No, I'm a girl; you're apparently just an idiot," Rose crossed her arms and glared at her alternate self. "Have you been listing at all? It's not like I'm talking because I like the sound of my own voice." She paused, "Well, actually I do, but that's not the point."

"Well then go talk someplace else! Working here." Rodney waved a hand dismissively as he bent over the ancient doodad in panicked concentration.

The rest of the team (and eventually the rest of the lab) watched in amusement as the two Rodneys devolved into a shouting match over who was better qualified to fix said device. It wasn't until Elizabeth showed up and threatened to have Carson forcefully sedate them both that the two finally declared a truce.

At least until the coffee ran out.

SUMMARY: Atlantis is missing only one thing...
NOTE: This is the first drabble where I hit 100 words on the first draft! o_O;


Atlantis was intelligent, but she wasn't creative. Two plus two was always four, never blue or apple or 'five for very large values of two', although she thought she understood the joke. It was the only limit to her power, beyond the ZPMs, and she had tried for centuries to find a way to code those jumps of illogic. But two plus two was four, no matter how hard she tried.

She wasn't creative, but she didn't need to be, that's what her Avatar was for. Rodney was the spark, she was the fuel, and they'd set the stars ablaze.

They weren't the only village that practiced sacrifice; in those lean years when the Wraith were few and far between, the tithe kept the village alive. Five people chosen randomly each month to live caged for the Wraith to feed upon or spare as they saw fit. A way to manage death, contain it within rules and ritual. A desperate bid to control the uncontrollable.

Rodney hadn't thought the Wraith capable of irony. Not until he saw the five rail-thin bodies pleading from the cage in voices rough with starvation, and the village behind them inhabited by nothing but bones.

SUMMARY: For some scientists Atlantis is more familiar than they'd like. (I blame my World History class. *nod**nod*)


They'd forgotten what it was like, living in a war zone. Forgotten the sharpness, the bite it brought to everything. Each moment, each action, might be their last for a hundred reasons outside of their control, and maybe a handful within. So they lived for those moments they could control, steady in the face of fear, falling back into old habits they thought they'd outgrown.

And they tried not to be insulted when the other scientists looked at them sideways, tried not to remind them in clipped tones and accented English that some countries hadn't shared the luxury of peace.

"Come on, live a little!" Rose grinned through her plastic mask, waving the pumpkin in front of him making the candy rattle. "It's Halloween, what can it hurt?"

And that was the problem, wasn't it? It couldn't hurt, not the way she meant. A simple ritual of masks and candy, wrapped up in something bigger, something older than a turnip with a face. But it was Rose, and it was Halloween, and what the hell.

He took one last look in the mirror and frowned, striped pants, frocked coat, cricket ball... "Ah!" The celery. Wouldn't do to forget the celery.

SUMMARY: A city dreams in fractal trees...


In the depths of the sea sleeps an ancient city, worn by wind and waves, buried in the past. Ghosts walk her halls, in silent passing; echoes of things that might have been seed fractal trees that drown her dreams in green. She holds them there, her futures that never came to be, horded in memory against the time and tides. And then...

And then the stargate opens and they walk among her ghosts; a wind of futures sweeping away the ancient trees. In time they'll leave behind a forest of their own, but for now she won't dream alone.

"Welcome aboard!" So he did, but it had been a long time since he'd been on a ship where the stars to steer her by were only that and not his destination. "Steady there-," and he didn't quite trip over the pile of bags lying innocently in the middle of the deck, but it earned him an annoyed look from Jack none the less. Jack, who'd taken in stride the shift from traveling through time and space to just space, and linear space at that.

He forgot they were human sometimes, and on the good days they forgot he wasn't.

Matt loves guns and explosives and curses a blue streak when he gets excited, but Trish knows he's an ogre at heart. Because everyone has two jobs on Atlantis, one is his bark and his bite, but the other's his brain. Intelligence Analyst, Cryptologic Linguist, with a knack for pulling meaning from static. He's got just enough of the gene to give him that push, and uses every scrap that he's got. He might shoot first and ask questions later, but he's never been wrong on who he's chosen to shoot.

Except for the sheep, and that wasn't his fault.

Amy was a small-town girl with big-town dreams, but she loved Iowa's rolling hills just as much as she loved New York. When Jonathan joined the Marines, she flew back to wish her twin farewell and fair weather... and came home to a funeral instead.

The day after she stepped into her brother's shoes, because the Myers had been Marines for five generations and she couldn't-- wouldn't let that die too. For a while her parents thought they'd lost them both, but she returned still smiling, carrying that same diamond core as the Myers before her, still Amy after all.

------------------------

Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.
Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.
Peace, peace, and farewell...

SUMMARY: What if Atlantis had to rescue herself? AU from first season.


It was five years before Atlantis learned to recharge ZPMs. They gated to a ravaged Earth, population decimated by Ori plagues and a SGC standing by will alone.

Atlantis had long since won her own peace, on the wings of a vengeance unacceptable to most. But she had the strength they needed, and Atlantis lent troops to defend her ancestral home.

If anyone noticed that Atlantis asked nothing in return, needed nothing in return, they ignored it. Protection was worth the price, at first, before they realized just how much their children had grown.

By then it was too late.

Peter never grew older, but neither did Hook. The boy skipped through the centuries living moment to moment in blissful forgetfulness. The man clawed his way from sun-up to sun-down, focused on the one thing that would set him free.

The pirates died... and rose to life again as soon as Peter forgot he'd killed them. They'd long ago given up on escaping immortality the easy way, death never lasted long in Neverland.

Except.

Tink's magic may have brought the boy to Neverland, but Pan was Neverland now. Everything danced to his whims, and he'd never let them go.

Except.

Her boys? She paused, thoughtful, and for a moment she wasn't Wendy anymore. She was Wen, pirate lass with nary a tie to bind her and a future as unfettered as the sea.

And then Wendy was back, that brief flash of unexpected yearning gone. "No thank you," she said, declining tea and futures in the same polite headshake.

And that was that.

Jack sang something old and improper and spun her around in the starlight to half-remembered tunes. The Doctor laughed at Jack's blatantly improvised lyrics and Rose's conflicting accompaniment where she'd learned different words. So they drew him in with 'So you can do better?' and the three of them played a game of Horse, with songs instead of baskets, till the moonlight faded into the dawn and they were all slightly punch-drunk for lack of sleep. And the TARDIS lured them back with songs soaked in time, a gentle lullaby of forever that danced them all to bed, still laughing.
