Cylon.

It's a thing, unfeeling, manufactured. Years ago you'd buy one for a price. It would work for you, serve you, by your command. It's a murderer, a destroyer, responsible for the deaths of millions upon millions.

Even skinjobs – even victims of New Caprica bombings, even Sharon Agathon – were hard to think of as flesh and blood.

Until now.

Is the metallic taste on her tongue from sticking paper clips between her lips?

Was Sam driving his grief away in her arms because their bodies recognized something under their skin?

It's time to figure out what Cylon means.

Aw, thank you! It's not always easy to watch and will break your heart over and over again, but I can tell you it's certainly spoiled me for a lot of other shows. It's tough to find meatier characters than BSG characters.

Wow, I have never seen anything in this canon (I mean, actually watched the show), but I love love love your pacing, and the choice of words is absolutely perfect.

Sigh.

Tory. In a way I think she's the most complex of all of the Final Five, the most dynamic, the most determined. I'm never sure if it's because she had an important yet subservient role prior to the reveal or because she just moves through everything with the same crisp efficiency. But these questions she asks -- well, Tory would ask them. She'd want and need the answers so she could absorb every bit of it and keep moving forward. It's what she does.

She at least rivals Tigh for determination, if in a sort of opposing way. I wish there'd been a little more to her pre-reveal, although I say that having liked her then in the only way you can like characters that secondary.

I'm glad this worked for you!
