Jack and Sam

A reader asks, "If you're allowed to move people around and get couples together in the (Legacy) books, why don't you get Jack and Sam together?"

Jack and Sam are already together. They're a canon pairing as far as we know. It seems pretty clear to all of us that they got together at the end of SG-1 season eight, in the episode Threads, and that they were an established couple when Sam came to Atlantis. After all, she had a big silver framed 8x10 of Jack in her bedroom! It's not like people keep big framed pictures of their former bosses in their bedrooms! And in the deleted scenes for SGA's fourth season episode Trio, Sam says she's dating an older guy in DC who is thinking about retiring.

We've been writing them an established couple, as that's certainly what the SGA canon suggests. I think they're reasonably quiet about their relationship for the sake of Sam's career, as it would do her a lot of harm to have her promotion chalked down to favoritism. We haven't seen much of Jack so far in the Legacy series, though there is more of him in The Avengers, and also more from Sam's point of view, so I think it's very clear in that book that they are an established couple.

   Summer Rain and Wind - the sound of raindrops hitting wet leaves or wind playing in the trees is something that no money in the world could buy!

What I dislike?
   Intolerant people who think everybody has to live like they do to be considered equal; also I have a strong dislike for people with money who treat less wealthy people like shit just because they don't own as much money. More important than money are character, values and principles!
