She turns toward the shout and finds herself wrapped in a set of strong, worried arms. “Daniel,” she whispers, recognizing him by feel. A shadow blocks the sun behind her and by the hand on her lower back, she knows that it’s Teal’c. She allows herself another moment to breathe, this time in relief at the touch of two people she hadn’t been able to find down below.


“President Hayes is dead,” she says and a murmur of gasps travels through the room, “and I think we can safely assume that most of the US government has perished with him. So have three and a half billion other people. With the changes our planet is going to go through, even more will die. Friends, family, and strangers. There is nothing we can do about it. And as someone who has spent most of her adult life creating the impossible out of thin air and duct tape, I can tell you that that’s hard for me to accept. But it’s the truth.”

(Pic the third will be added to this post once it's finished. Sorry, I'm still a bit behind schedule with the last picture...)

Basically, you are perfect. This is everything I could've hoped for from an artist, and more. The Sam/Teal'c/Daniel picture is now my laptop's background (and the super ominous sky, and the dirt and scrapes on Sam...wonderful). And Sam in the auditorium is exactly how I imagined it in my head while I was writing it.

Thank you so much. ♥

Thank you! Phoenix is a fabulous story which gave me a lot of art-inspiring feels, and I'm so happy I got the chance to illustrate it (I'll go over and leave a long and rambling comment/review over on AO3 this weekend once I've re-read the entire thing!).

I'm glad you liked my pictures! It was a pleasure to do them - the auditorium scene in particular really resonated with me (because I am the sort of sap who tears up at Epic Speeches, lol), and I couldn't pass up the chance to draw the Sam/Teal'c/Daniel group hug.
