One reason why I am so un-prolific  
I'm sure there are a few of you who have had moments like this, so I thought I would share...

So I'm trying to write a very small moment in which Daniel sees Jack, in a very ill state, and Daniel's mentally comparing Jack to another time when Jack looked like crap. My first impulse is to say Frozen when Jack was dying of the Ancient disease, but of course I can't use that, because Daniel wasn't around to see it. (well, okay, Ascended!Daniel could have, but he doesn't remember it, so same thing). So I'm flailing about trying to think of the second-worst-looking Jack moment. I turn to my trusty online sources for such thing... and what happens? I totally get caught up looking at pictures and trivia and such and a freakin' hour goes by in which I have. not. written. a. word. All for a stupid simile.

How about when Jack came back from being tortured and sarcophagised by Baal?

Maybe after he took that staff blast that would have killed him if he hadn't had that protective thing under his vest, in the episode where Janet dies.

Jack got shot in the process of rescuing Carter in Desperate Measures.

'touched ' Jack from Broca divide.

Jack and Daniel both ended up on the wrong end of the torture stick in Beast of Burden.

That's all I can come up with off the top of my head.

I went with jack post-Solitudes. We don't actually see much of the aftermath, but it must have been pretty bad since he was very close to dying. I reference the internal bleeding from it somewhere else previous to this particular mention in the fic, so that makes a nice continuation.

Abyss wouldn't work for the same reason that Frozen wouldn't work -- Daniel doesn't know/remember it. Heroes would be good, except it hasn't happened yet in the story's timeline. Nice try, though. :)

I heart your icon, btw! very yummy nice.

But... Isn't that normal? That's not how you research for a fic? But...

Was''nt there an episode during season I whee they found these poeple that went through their entire life span in a very short time, and Col Oneil got really old really fast?

oh yes. the famous "let's eat drugged cake and make babies with the local good-looking chick" ep. :) O'Neill sure reaped what he sowed in that one, cuz yeah, he looked Ba-aad. Then he got better instantaneously -- makes me wonder why they didn't bring those nanites back to Earth for the cosmetics/plastic surgery industry... The SGC could have paid for itself the first year. ;)

I think they call that the reset button, first popularized by Star Trek
