Review of chapter "Nothing New Under the Sun" from RevDorothyL
Review:
Great last line, about still living out distorted script versions of Daniel Jackson's life experiences!

Poor Jonas and his lost Goa'uld love (and I mean that, actually -- I thought it was intriguing the way they portrayed the Goa'uld as the one who kinda had a thing for Jonas, and whose personality had been the reason he'd fallen for Kianna).

Review of chapter "Nothing New Under the Sun" from (Current Donor)Sulien
Review:
Oh, man. Poor Jonas always did wind up with the fuzzy end of the lollypop stick. I really loved that character and thought they should have found a way to keep him on the show somehow. Truth be told, I like him a lot better than I do Daniel from seasons 9 and 10. Edited to add: There just isn't enough brain bleach to clean "Unending" out of my mind. Yeeeaaaarrrrrrgh!!!

Anyway, what I meant to say is that this story was wonderful and underscores well how Jonas was always living in Daniel's shadow. Thanks for sharing it!

Edited (again) for reply: Yes, I agree with you about the series ending with season 8. I had issues with it too, but "Threads" would have been an exponentially better ending place.

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. I didn't like Jonas much when he first appeared, but by the time he left I felt very sorry for him; he was trying so hard but everywhere he went he was surrounded by the specter of Daniel Jackson. Things might have changed after Daniel returned, but the PTBs booted him off the show too quick to tell.

Speaking of PTB decisions. Haven't seen Unending yet myself, but I've heard various negative things about it. *sigh* The show should have ended with Season 8.

Review of chapter "Nothing New Under the Sun" from (Past Donor)Mari
Review:
Based on this bit "He snorted into his pillow. Nearly a year after leaving Earth, and he was *still* living out a distorted script from the life of Daniel Jackson." I'm guessing you didn't have warm fuzzy Jonas thoughts, either?

I definitely always thought of him as the SG-1 equivalent of Riley. He should belong and was likable enough, but, to me, for some reason he just didn't quite seem to fit.

Poor guy. Maybe he didn't think he quite fit, either.
Comments from author:
He grew on me as Season 6 progressed, but I kept wishing they would just do something *different* with him, instead of shoehorning him into Daniel's role. And even when they brought him back, c'mon. A Goa'ulded girlfriend? *sigh* He must have got sick of being the fifth wheel on a team of only four. I hope he's OK in the current season; it was incredibly tacky of the show-writers to just toss out a throwaway line about Langara being under the heel of the Ori.
