ficlet: Long bad dreams (SGA, PG13)

I shouldn't. But for reasons unrelated to fandom, and through nobody's fault but mine, I'm feeling lonely, hurt and pissed off with myself right now. Could use talking with a friend, but the person I'd usually call... alas, that's the rub.

In other words, the *perfect* mood to write an impromptu SGA runner ficlet.

Title: Long bad dreams
Rating: PG13
Warnings: Cf. my emoting above. The chances of this being a happy fic? Not good.

He sleeps through the nightmares. He doesn't move or make a sound as the Wraith kill everybody; he doesn't even wake up when they make a circle around him in his dream, as he desperately searches through the bodies of his fallen comrades for a grenade, a gun, anything. They had spent everything.

And it hadn't been enough.

The dream always skips over to his first run. Naked, cold, he had waited in a forest clearing for the young Wraith to find him, not making any attempt to escape. When the Wraith jumped over him, contemptuous and hungry, he took a long knife he had hidden between the leaves and slashed the Wraith's throat in mid air.

It had been a nearly suicidal plan. Nearly.

He had shrugged and moved on. There'd be other Wraith.

John only wakes up when his instincts tell him that it's time to get moving again.
