Review:
What starts out as a quiet trip to Jack's cabin turns into a journey of discovery and so much more for both Jack and Daniel.

The are a number of reasons why I love this story, the least of which has to do with the fact that this is one of the most relaxing stories I've read in the SG-1 fandom. Naturally paced all the way through, the relationship between Jack and Daniel is unhurried and, to my mind, completely realistic. Slow to build, this is one of those stories that doesn't ignore the fact that neither of these two are teenagers anymore nor does it ignore that these two can't just jump into bed together and have a good time. There's too much history between them for that. Too much...everything.

Even so, when these two finally do get together (which, in context, is inevitable), it's a slow quiet smolder that speaks of being partners for the rest of their lives. Something that both of these guys deserve in spades, in my opinion.

Okay, "yay!" to Jack/Daniel and *major* YAY to slow romances. I cannot wait to read this story. Thanks for the rec.

In *any* context, even. The J/D, long may it burn. *grin*

Slow romances are always the best, especially where Jack and Daniel are concerned. I hope you enjoy it! :)

I totally agree! :D

Dude, I don't even *like* SG-1 fic (um, I've written a whole rant about why I don't like Daniel Jackson), and I want to read this. Great rec!

I completely understand as I really can't bring myself to like Sam Carter anymore. The early seasons I loved her, even cheered her kind-of-but-not romance with Jack but the later seasons? I'll pass. It was awful to realize she was going to be in SGA, too. :(

I haven't read your rant on Daniel but he doesn't come off as a pompous ass in this story. Just a forty year old with a couple of degrees to his name and MacGyver a colonel as his best friend. If you do read it, I hope you like it :)
