A drabble coda to "In the Line of Duty."
No dough, no foul.
When you're in mourning for a Goa'uld, your friends look at you strangely. They wait for it to wear off - they whisper of recovery and reabsorption, not bereavement or separation.
Looking back, you're amazed that Skaara could rebel against so complete and pervasive a union. "Closer is He than breathing," someone once said, and religious symbolism that was abstract before is quite literal now. You became something bigger than Captain Carter - a perfect union, fearful in wrath yet infinite in love. For a little while, you were Jolinar of Malkshur.
When you're in mourning for yourself, your friends don't understand.
