"Are we ready?" Carter asked and looked at the gathering. Several somber faces, and some not so somberly grinning faces, looked back and nodded.

"We're ready," Cara declared and sent a narrowed glare around, just to make sure.

Vala licked a stray bit of frosting off her finger. "These are ready."

"Vala!" Aeryn reached across and smacked her shoulder. "Stop stealing the cupcakes, we're going to eat them after presents. Who's bringing her?"

Silence fell. They all looked at each other, suddenly uncertain. Carter heaved a sigh. "Cara -- "

Two blonde women looked toward her. "What? I thought you were talking to her--" they both complained.

Kate rolled her eyes and stood up. "I'll go get her. She won't suspect anything with me, if I say I want to talk to her for a case."

Someone's cellphone rang and at least four hands went to jacket pockets to look for a phone, before realizing whose it was.

Caprica frowned in surprise and pulled out a phone from her black leather jacket. "I... guess it's mine," she answered in some confusion before flipping the phone open. "Hello?" The person on the other end spoke briefly and then, looking a little dazed, she closed the phone, "She said she would handle it."

"Who?" Carter asked, puzzled. "Everyone's here."

"I'm not sure. She sounded like... me," Caprica answered with a shrug. "One of my sisters. But somehow different. I can't really explain..."

Kara groaned. "Oh, that's just great. Interfering spiritual higher-plane messenger angels." She rolled her eyes.

"Like you," Cara observed dryly.

"Please. Not even," Kara retorted. "I don't interfere." She hesitated and had to correct herself. "Well, except for that show. They made me male, can you imagine? At least I managed to fix it in the reboot."

"At least you were in the first show," Caprica muttered. "They forgot us all together, and made Gaius a horrible cowardly traitor. Hateful show."

"I know," Kara reached across and patted her shoulder. "They forgot the Five, too, and you can imagine how long a certain someone pouted about that. But then," she flashed a smile, "he stomped down to the mortal plane and gave Jim the dream that turned into the Terminator movie. So it all turned out, I guess. More warnings about treating your AIs nicely can't hurt."

Carter cleared her throat. "If we could return to the reason we're here?"

"Just wait," Kara told her, "They'll reboot your show, too."

Carter chuckled. "I've already seen Wormhole X-Treme. It can't possibly be worse. Anyway. You think she'll do it?"

"She does what she wants," Kara agreed with a shrug.

"Then I suggest we get ready," Carter ordered. "Everybody, hide. Vala, hit the lights."

A plastic coconut sailed across the room and hit the light switch. The lights went out. Someone in Carter's vicinity groaned.

"Good shot," Kara called.


Then Cara hissed, "I hear footsteps." They all fell quiet as the footsteps drew closer, and the door opened.

At first, silhouetted in the door, there was a tall, statuesque blond wearing a distinctive red dress. "My," she drawled, "I wonder why the lights are off?" She waved a hand nowhere near the light switch, but the overhead lights turned on anyway, revealing a second woman behind the Six.

Everyone jumped up and shouted:



Hope you have a good one!

And in unrelated news, Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs" came out today. Amazon has it for mp3 DL for 3.99. /pimp

Except for some reason I read Carter as Carson, and the image of my wee Scottish imaginary boyfriend surrounded by all these awesome women was just too awesome.

But Carter makes more sense, and is of course completely awesome as well.

I was going to write "Sam" but that seemed too confusing with all the Sams wandering in various fandoms... Though heh, apparently I managed to be confusing anyway! :)
