A drabble coda to "Deadman Switch."

No dough, no foul.

Thanks to Jerie for making it possible.

Aris Bock jokes about the price on my head. He was always a bit off. At first I sympathized with his plight - his dead wife, his missing son - and then it turned out to be lies.

Is my story any better? My wife is gone and I'm tramping around playing dodge-em with the Goa'uld, looking for a wife who's no longer human, trying to save a son who isn't even mine.

He gave Sam a vial of roshna, but he doesn't really believe she can help him. When you're choiceless, you learn to live without luxuries like hope.
