Canon: Battlestar Galactica
Characters/Pairing: Sam/Starbuck
Prompt: photographs
Rating: G
Notes: Tragic is as tragic does, my mama always used to say.



He wasn’t going to put it there; that made it too real. Even after two months, he didn’t want her picture on that wall of the lost.

On New Caprica it took four months to find her. Who was to say this would be any godsdamned different? They all knew Leoben (frakking toaster) had it in for her. Why Kara? Why his girl? Why his wife?

That had come so close to destroying her. Leoben demolished what they had, but still, when Adama finally lost hope and tacked her picture up, it was all he could do not to cry.

Oh, Sammy.

"My girl's too lucky to check out" and the way he touches her picture at the end of the same episode break my heart. I like this.

Thanks.

Everything that happens with the two of them from Maelstrom on is so gut-wrenching. Show, I love you and you never give us a break. That's why I have to use this icon.

It's a really well-written series. The characters are fantastic and the story's compelling. If you like sci-fi with a gritty edge, you'll like BSG.
