SGA fic: The Traveller 1/1 K+ (Weir angst)

Title: The Traveller
Author: Purpleyin

Rating: K+
Spoilers: All Season 2
Warning: Implication of addiction
Summary: Who is Elizabeth Weir? She's not sure these days. Allies Spoilers. Elizabeth character angst.

A/N: Betaread by Fanwoman & fififolle

She doesn't know what she's still doing here, fighting a war as if she knows how. She doesn't want to know, but she's beginning to. And who is she becoming in the process? In the darkness of the night, she sees that it's not someone she can often bear. The pills make the ghost of her old self go away, or at least they hush her conscience. Her concern is confined to slips by her subconscious, for it's in her dreams that she can't escape herself. It's never as blunt as to tell her plainly what is wrong – how to fix it.

So she carries on because she is only fractured, fissured, and in times like this, you don't mend what's not actually broken. She'll carry on until she falls. Someone else will pick her up, piece her back together as the woman they know, because she doesn't know herself well enough anymore to be able to do that. She has to hope she won't shatter completely; she has to be Elizabeth Weir in some recognizable form to be able to go back to what she once was. She hopes she will still be able to when this is over, but in the darkness, right now, she fears this is what she should be, her true form. She wonders if this is someone she won’t be able to walk away from, but instead, someone she’s been journeying towards becoming her whole life without ever knowing it.

poor Weir
I feel sorry for her, and yet am highly curious to know where she's on her way to becoming...maybe by the time Kolya returns (in fic or series), the answer will arise.

Lovely fic, very evoking. bravo, my friend.

and now, to (mis)quote a cool movie: "So long and thanks for all the fish, Elizabeth."

Well, it's kind of an appropriate quote with TH's dolphin noises... :D Thanks for feedback.

Re: poor Weir
I've both read and seen clips from behind the scenes where she makes dolphin noises. Try asking about it on the TH thread on mw central - someone there will probably be able to explain better and maybe link you to a clip or something.

Awwww, that was so beautifully bittersweet! Elizabeth is so wonderfully complex, and you nailed it.
