Fic snippet: The Gift

Date: Thursday, November 08, 2001

Just a little something inspired by an advert on tv earlier. No rating - it's not even slash. Enjoy, ALF

Jack looked at the gaily wrapped package, then at the grinning faces of his team.

"What is it?" he asked suspiciously.

"Why don't you just open it, Jack?" Daniel asked mischievously.

"Well, I guess it's a DVD," Jack said, turning the package over in his hands. Reluctantly he tore off the paper. He guessed that his team were playing some sort of joke on him. It wasn't his birthday, it wasn't Christmas. Hell, he wasn't even injured. Yet, they'd presented him with the gift at the unofficial SG1 briefing that morning.

Finally, the paper fell to the floor and it was indeed a DVD - of The Wizard of Oz. He looked around at the rest of the team, Teal'c was quirking an eyebrow in a way that suggested he was just as amused as Carter and Daniel's big grins proved them to be.

Jack shook his head. There was nothing he could say to them.

The Alpha Gate: having a blast celebrating the team, the whole team and nothing but the team through fun (okay, okay!) gloriously silly discussions, wonderful writing and much splashing around in de cool, calming waters of De Nile. Insane list mods regrettably part of de package. And tuna.
