Summary: SG's 1 and 13 are watching C-SPAN.

Notes: This is set somewhere in the same universe as "Anywhere But Here" and "A New Job".
Buffy walked into the briefing room to find her current SG team, SG-13, and half of the one she was slated to join after she finished her training. That team was SG-1. Although she was a "hot chick with super powers", both General Hammond and Col. O'Neill had decided some off world training with another unit was needed before Buffy could be placed on the elite SG-1. Though she was Col Dixon's to command, the members of SG-1 were trying to find a place for her to fit in with them too, so both teams could often be found hanging out together when not off world. Thus Buffy found Major Carter and Dr. Jackson watching television with Col. Dixon, Airman Wells, Dr.Balinsky, and Major Bosworth. They were eating popcorn and laughing.
"Hey guys. What are you watching?" Buffy greeted them.
"We're watching C-SPAN," Dr. Jackson replied, without looking away from the television.
"I can see that, but why?" Buffy asked as she took one of three empty seats at the table.
"Because that pansy assed Senator just introduced a Senate Resolution, Summers," Col. Dixon replied as though the unnamed Senator wasn't the only idiot around.
"Really? What has Kinsey done now?" asked a bemused Buffy, once she guessed the identity of the Senator.
"He introduced Senate Resolution 1138-42," Carter said, as if that should answer everything.
Col. O'Neill entered the room and took the seat at the foot of the table and commented, "So, Kinsey actually went through with it, then?"
"OK, I'll bite," Buffy said, then winced as every eye swung to her. Too late she realized that her comment would cause some discomfort since everyone in the room knew what she was used to fighting. She corrected her phraseology, "Not like that. I meant, I take the bait. What is Senate Resolution 1138-42?"
"It requires all extra- and sub-terrestrials to register and get a permit to live on the planet," explained Dr. Balinsky, the archeologist slash anthropologist of Buffy's unit.
Buffy gasped. Not that she put it past Kinsey to try something like this, but that it would get this far, and at the inclusion of sub-terrestrials. Someone had been reading up on the Initiative.
"So, how is it going?" she inquired.
'It's going down in flames," laughed Airman Wells.
"Not only is it going down, but every Senator seems to be taking their turn to speak and laugh at the idea of aliens on Earth," Col. Dixon merrily chimed in.
"I guess Kinsey is safe from the wrath of Teal'c," Dr. Jackson said snarkily.
"I don't know what Kinsey was thinking, " Carter said. "I mean, Nyan and Loran are harmless and would gladly jump through hoops to stay, but Teal'c?" She shook her head. "He'd comply, but not be happy about it, and the next time Kinsey came to the SGC it wouldn't be pretty."
"No, it wouldn't. Now everyone shut up so I can hear what the other Senators have to say," Col. O'Neill ordered.
The room quieted except for the snickers of everyone present as yet another Senator laughed off the need for such a law.
Buffy smiled to herself. They may not be the Scoobies, but the people of the SGC had her type of twisted humor. Where else could she find people who watched C-SPAN in order to mock it? Nowhere else in the world.
