five things #105

Five letters Jack wrote but never sent.



1. dear samantha,

i know your wedding is soon & you probably have a hundred things on your mind, but i just wanted to send you a brief note to wish you well. i'm sure you & pete will have many years of happiness together. i can think of few people who deserve it more. i'm no marriage expert, but here's some advice; try not to hassle him about socks on the floor & leaving the toilet seat up. tell him what's bothering you & let him fix it if he can. try not to go to bed angry with each other. don't bring your work home. make time for each other & listen to what the other has to say.
no rush in coming back from the honeymoon, i can keep daniel alive without your help. i think.

all my best,
jack o'neill


2. kawalsky,

so they put you in charge of an SG team. you poor s.o.b. the least they could've done is promote you to lt. col., God knows you deserve it. i could put a bug in hammond's ear next month before the promotion lists come out, if you want.
any time you need to talk, you know where to find me. you bring the beer.

jack


3. dearest sara,

words can not express how sorry i am. i know it's all my fault, if you told me once you told me a thousand time to lock up....
but that's not why i'm writing. i've been reactivated, can you believe it? it a crazy mission, that i can't tell you the details of, and there's a good chance i won't make it back. if i don't, i want you to know that i loved you very much. you were my rock, the thing that kept me going, that gave me something to come back from missions for. you and our son. there's a million things that i want to tell you, but the car they sent for me is here. just know that you'll always have a place in my heart.

love,
your husband


4. jonas quinn,

you seem to be doing a good job in daniel's place. not that you're replacing him, just doing his job. not his job exactly, just doing sort of what he did.
oh hell, this isn't what i wanted to write. some words of advice; for sam, always let her have the last of the blue jello in the mess & take her a cup of coffee when she's working late. for teal'c, nod at any words of wisdom he might have & laugh at his jokes even if you think they aren't funny. they usually aren't. as for me; keep your explanations short & use words that i can understand and we should get along just fine.

5. dear charlie,

well you're off to college now & i wanted to give you a few words of encouragement. actually you're only 6 as i write this, but i'm sure you're going to a good school. perhaps on scholarship, as you seem to be favoring baseball at this age. your mother thinks you'll get in on smarts alone. any brains you have you got from her you know.
this is a major time in your life, being away from home for the first time. you're probably going to want to go out and live a little. that's fine, just try not to overdo it. if for no other reason than for your mother's sake. she'd hate to get a phone call in the middle of the night saying you got into some sort of trouble. so would i. study hard, do the best that you can and make some time to go fishing with your old man once in a while.

good luck,
dad
