A drabble coda to "Politics."

No dough, no foul.

Thanks to Jerie for making it possible.

Daniel was the one who opened Pandora's box. Carter asks him a simple question about his alternate reality, and he says "You and Jack were engaged to be married." Like it was nothing special.

I watch Carter technobabble her way out of it and I feel trapped. I'm dead meat, and somehow I'm still walking around, going to meetings, arguing with idiot Senators.

My whole world has been shattered. This little worm of an idea is in my head now and I can't get it out. It's like a virus or a nanocyte - as usual, I'm the first one infected.
