Summary: Major, I order you to tell me that this is a joke.




"Major, I order you to tell me that this is a joke."

"I really wish I could, Colonel O'Neill."

Daniel thought it was rather impressive the way Major Paul Davis didn't even flinch in the face of Jack's anger and frustration - or General Hammond's for that matter. Not that Daniel blamed either man for their reactions. Daniel, while not angry at Major Davis' announcement, was more than a little concerned.

Okay, he was a lot concerned.

Jack shook his head. "You really can't be serious."

"I'm afraid I am," Major Davis replied.

"She killed four people while somehow being taken over by Hathor, in a way we still haven't figured out yet. You can't seriously be telling me that the President of United States has given her a full pardon and is demanding that we let her go. That has to be the most insane thing I have ever heard."

"Colonel O'Neill is correct," Teal'c agreed. "It would be unwise to allow Joyce Summers to leave Stargate Command."

He had to agree with Jack and Teal'c. Daniel didn't think that Joyce voluntarily did those things for a second, but something happened to her to allow Hathor to take over, and to let her go was insane. What happened if Hathor took over again? How many people would Hathor kill?

"They have a point, sir," Sam said, addressing the General rather than Major Davis. "If I am right, and the Goa'uld have found technology to allow them to take hosts remotely, Mrs Summers may be our only opportunity of discovering how the Goa'uld did it. It's most likely that they have implanted Mrs Summers with some sort of device which allows them to temporarily transfer consciousness, similar to how the Asgard transfer their consciousness. It may take us time to work find the correct way to test for the technology."

Jack pointed to Sam. "Yeah, what she said."

Daniel nodded in agreement, though there was a part of him that didn't think Sam's explanation explained everything - such as how the hair ribbon changed to a ribbon device.

Major Davis shook his head. "I'm sorry, but the President was clear. Mrs Summers is to be returned to Sunnydale, and the SGC is not allowed to contact her or place her under surveillance. The NID have been given the same instructions."

"It doesn't make sense, though, why would the President suddenly want to let her go?" Daniel argued. "Major Davis, did the President explain why he was letting her go?"

The Major made a face. "The President wasn't able to go into details before I left, but I do know the request for her release came from the British Government."

"The British Government?" Jack exclaimed. "Carter, didn't your background search say that she was American?"

"Well, I'm afraid it doesn't matter which country she is from," General Hammond told them. "We have no choice but to release Mrs Summers and allow her to return to Sunnydale."

Daniel closed his eyes. This was a bad idea, not just because they didn't know how Hathor had taken her as a host, but because Joyce remembered every moment. She had admitted as much when she gave them the intel on Hathor's location. Intel which had been confirmed by the Tok'ra.




Joyce stared at him in shock. "You're letting me go? Just like that?"

Daniel didn't know if he was relieved or concerned that Joyce had no idea why the British Government had arranged for her release.

"But... but those people..." Joyce's eyes filled with tears and Daniel resisted the urge to comfort her.

"You've been given a full pardon," Daniel told her. "Joyce, we know it wasn't you."

She just nodded.

"You'll be completely safe from the Government and the SGC, we've been ordered to have no contact with you." Daniel knew Jack wouldn't really appreciate him telling Joyce this little bit of information, but he had a plan.

"Oh, I see."

Daniel held out a piece of paper towards her. When she looked up at him in confusion, he explained. "My contact details. It has my cell, home number, my number here at the SGC and my email address."

"But you just said..."

"Our orders are that we can't contact you," Daniel explained.

He reached out and took her hand.

"There is nothing stopping you from calling me."

Why is Supernatural tagged here? There's no one from it anywhere in here.

Good and interesting though, I thought you were using timeline witchcraft for a moment but realised I was wrong.

The tag for supernatural was accidentally put on and I wasn't able to remove it for some reason after I had tried three times. The mod has removed it.

No, the timeline is season 2 for both shows (as Hathor was introduced in season 1 of SG-1) but takes place before the season 2 finale (which was hinted at by Joyce in the previous fic).

Thanks for your feedback.

Day Thirteen - Accepted!

I've removed the fandom tag for Supernatural from your posting.

The Watcher's Council actually cared whether Joyce was incarcerated or not? Or did Giles pull some pretty impressive strings? I'm all sorts of curious.
