"my" jack o'neill

i saw this post on live journal about who jack o'neill is for people who write fan fic. and while i don't write that, i started to think who he is in my mind. RDA is the reason i started to watch the show after all.

he is all of that in people's replies (he's more complicated than he let's on, but who isn't?) but he's also this in my mind;

he's loyal, once you're a friend you're friends for life. even if you don't see him for years. if you're on his crap list, there's no hope.
he's brand loyal. once he's found something he likes he sticks with it. he's traditional. he mourns the fact that you can't find just plain tooth paste anymore.
jack belongs to the school of; if it's not broke, don't fix it.
he's the kind of guy who will bail you out of jail at 3 a.m. no questions asked. (he'll grumble the whole time though) also he'll drive you home from a party when you've had too much to drink.
jack doesn't give advice on your latest life-crises, so don't ask. don't dump your problems on him. he has enough of his own, thank you very much.
jack's like of children can be attributed to two things; 1. he only had one (he's irish-catholic you know) and 2. he lost that only child.
he's smarter than he lets on. he rarely shows it bceause once "they" know you're smart, they want that level from you all of the time.

i think that's all. if i think of something else i'll add it later
