Author's summary: "Er...J/D, aliens, sex, threat of death... You should know by now whether you can trust me or not, so just read it, okay? This tends toward dark rather than fluff, possibly kink, but I don't think it's necessarily darker than other fics I've written."
Reactions and Reviews
For what it's worth, while I agree this isn't fluff, I don't think 'dark' is the right word for it. There's some stuff that could read as darkish kink, but that doesn't come across that way to me. For me, this is about willing sacrifice for a greater good, loyalty, connection -- all the things that make SG-1, SG-1. It's got an intriguing plot that ties into canon in cool ways, and that lays the foundation for Jack and Daniel's growing relationship, which stays solidly grounded in their friendship at the same time -- a little bickery, a little fraught, a lot deeply caring. Eos nailed their voices, and did a good job of capturing their mutual devotion to their jobs, their team, and each other, as well as their adaptability to pretty much anything and their refusal to give up in the face of adversity.
