Getting Rid of those Pesky Gou'ald  
Really... Continuum can stop giving me funny ideas about stuff ANY TIME NOW. I've been torturing poor ivorygates while watching the movie.

I think I've figured out how the extraction machine works in Continuum. It uses an itty bitty version of Asguard beaming technology (the different coloring of the beam means that they've done something to it to cause it to act as a sedative too) in order to preserve the Host's life since the surgical extraction has too good a chance of killing both Host and Symbiot (in case they want to interrogate any remaining Gou'ald). And the liquid when the vial was smashed was spinal fluid or some other liquid that surrounds the symbiot to help keep it cozy.

But this is why they were able to get it out of Ba'al as they did.

Daniel doesn't die. Cam is able to get him through the gate after Sam is killed. So both he and Daniel end up in the past together. Daniel has to abandon his prosthetic leg because of its too modern.

If people ask they claim to be brothers and Daniel was injured during WWI, Cam uses one of his Great-Uncles as a template when people ask where Daniel served. When it comes time to stop Ba'al, Cam leaves Daniel in Boston (they've set up a support system to help Daniel out for while Cam is gone) and goes to Alexandria and stows away on the Achilles.

When the boat arrives back in Boston, Daniel is at the docks to greet him. While Cam has been taking care of business, Daniel has also been seeing to getting them some land in an area they know won't become too populated in the future and put a house on it (Cam probably builds their small home on it himself to keep their interactions with others to a minimum).

This entire thing can be slashy or not. Either way would be really cool. And I so am not writing it. If anyone wants to write it, you have my blessing.

Not that I am not loving that idea but....didn't Daniel pull a Luke Skywalker and fall off the ledge in the shootout?

(so how does your extraction explain why Ba'al was SO SMALL compared to other symbiotes we've seen? And in the top of Ba'al's head rather than around the spinal cord?)

Daniel fell of the ledge after he was shot. In this case he doesn't get shot and fall off and Cam drags him through the gate.

(don't know about how small he is, but he seemed weaker and sluggish after the vial was broken so I'm guessing that can play into the idea that they sedate him through the use of the beam. As for the top of the head and not the spinal cord... I got nothin'. Magic? :/)

I know, I know! *waves wildly*

The giant finned Goa'uld shape is there when the snake is outside of a host. When the Goa'uld takes a host, it sheds most of that (which is then absorbed by the host), and leaves kind of a tiny naked worm-thing (remember how the immature Goa'uld that infested Kawalsky let them take most of it out while still retaining control?). We know from Egeria too that Goa'uld outside a host can be a lot larger, too.

(Can you tell the variation in size and the Kawalsky thing have always bugged me? *fanwanks furiously*)

And I so am not writing it.

Even if we bake cookies and put on fresh coffee? ;)

*groans at the yummy bribes*

Not even then. I can't write for that time period. Sorry. :(
CJ aka WritinginCT: sg1 cam shinywritinginct on April 4th, 2009 12:57 am (UTC)
That is a tough time period. But the plot line you offered up is just yummy. :)

I've added my blessing to anyone that'd like to play with it up on the post. So if you want to write it...

I like to give fic ideas away if folks like them. :D
CJ aka WritinginCT: as squished bunnywritinginct on April 4th, 2009 01:18 am (UTC)

I think between my wip's and my own "hey this would be cool to write" folder I've got enough to keep me busy, um, probably until 2015. lol

And right now my brain has been eaten by a John Sheppard/Jeannie Miller beast of a fic that was supposed to be just a quick 6-7k words- I'm up to 15k and counting. ugh.

although... the idea of trying to write slash set in your bunny's timeframe would be particularly challenging as same-sex relationships were rabidly taboo.

I'm pretty much in the same boat. So many stories going on, the biggest being Boys of Summer for stargate_summer.

And the ideas won't stop. I actually have another Continuum AU that I started that's based on Cam not killing Ba'al in 1939, but being captured by him instead.

Continuum is a lot like the Threads/Moebius episodes - SO much room to play.
Juliet: ash bramble rowanjulietk on April 4th, 2009 05:52 am (UTC)
Rabidly taboo maybe, but definitely still *happening*. And to some extent (in general: I know v little about the US in that particular period) situations where same-sex relationships are taboo can make it easier to pass, because the assumption is that two same-sex people living together are just-good-friends Especially if they claim to be brothers. Plus if people *do* have ideas of That Sort Of Person, they tend to be very stereotyped ones[0]. You wouldn't need to be outrageously subtle to keep it under the radar.

Anyway! I'm not offering to write it either :)

[0] Not that this is not still the case sometimes. "Oh! Well, you don't *look* [insert label here]."
CJ aka WritinginCT: gen tortoisewritinginct on April 4th, 2009 09:32 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah- definitely still happening but just under a boatload more discretion. :)

(and I love your baby rats in your icon ^.^ -they make the best pets!!)
Juliet: myste&storm ratsjulietk on April 5th, 2009 08:46 am (UTC)
Rats are *awesome*. That icon was baby Ash & baby Rowan with big grown-up grumpy Bramble (she warmed to them pretty quickly in the end & became much less grumpy :-) ). This one is Myste & Storm!

(Sadly we don't keep rats any more - short lifespans too distressing :( )

Okay I caved in to the bunny ^.^

and what a delectable bunny. Now you've got my head all abuzz.

Does this mean you'll give it a shot?
