An Unnatural Scent - Chapter 15

Dr. Samantha Carter waited patiently for Jack to be beamed in from the Daedalus. They were going to be giving a tour to some people. … That was all she'd been told. She certainly hoped Jack had more information to give her than that. She didn't like going in blind. Sam smiled as Jack appeared before her. She hadn't seen him in awhile. Sometimes she felt like she was missing a piece of herself, she had gotten so used to seeing him all the time because they'd been on the same team for so long. At least that's what she told herself was why she missed him.

"Sam," Jack said informally before she could salute. "Here. This is the information you're authorized to see about our visitors."

Sam's smiled turned into a frown as she took the 4 sheets of paper from Jack. She looked down at them skimming them quickly, trying to ignore the dark circles she'd noticed under Jack's eyes. He needed a vacation more from his time at a desk job than from when he was running for his life on alien planets.

"You're kidding me," Sam looked up. "Jack, there is hardly any information on these people. Why are we even giving them access? They're from a British historical society!"

"This is just the information you're cleared to know. Hell. I'm hardly authorized to know more than that! I was only told anything last night. I'm not even authorized to tell you much more. Of the three people coming only one of them has any ties to the US military. Buffy Summers spent a brief amount of time as a civilian consultant on a black ops project that went sideways, she was accredited for it not ending with the destruction of California."

"What!" Sam looked back down on the brief summary on the woman. "There's nothing on that here."

"They want no records of any kind on the project. It was that messed up. The NID was involved in the project big time, that's all I'm allowed to tell you. Because believe me, if I could tell you everything I know, which isn't much more than that, I would.

"The other woman coming is Winifred Burkle. At one point she was being considered for recruitment into the project once she finished her degree in physics, but she vanished. It was suspected the NID might have taken her but no one could find evidence of it. She finally reappeared only to join a detective agency of all things before joining Wolfram and Hart."

"The law firm?"


"Weren't they in the news recently? Their headquarters in LA blew up or something."

"Or something. Apparently the real details of what happened there are beyond my clearance level."

"… I didn't think there was anything beyond your clearance level."

"I thought so too. But if it has anything to do with what I think it does then I don't think I want to know. I think I'll sleep easier just worrying about the hostile aliens who want to destroy Earth."

Sam just stared at Jack. "… And the third peson?"

"British guy by the name of Wesley Wyndam-Price, I bet he was bullied a lot as a kid with a name like that. Overstayed his VISA but Wolfram and Hart took care of that when he started working for them. He also worked for the detective agency before that. His father was killed when the old head office for their 'historical society' got blown up a couple of years ago."

"His employers get blown up a lot."

"Before that was working at a high school that got blown up at graduation, so yeah…"

"So why are we giving them access?"

"Officially or unofficially?"

"Unofficially first."

"There are several unofficial reasons. That civilian consultant job got 'Buffy' owed a pretty big favor. She called it in. The President might have refused only she somehow already knew about the Asgard. He wants us to find out what they know about them, and how they knew his new phone number. Also, they apparently have several items from old museum tours that Danny tried to get access to a few years ago, before their headquarters got blown up. Apparently 'unimportant' stuff was stored elsewhere. The people in charge now said we can have some of them, and related items that never went on tour if we could give them what they want. There might even be a sarcophagus included in that, of the life-saving variety. The only problem is we don't actually know what they want except it's got something to do with the Asgard."

"Wow. Okay then… Wait, how did they know Daniel was involved in Area 51?"

"I don't think they do. At least I hope they don't know. They should just know that the US government wanted to see some stuff from Ancient Egypt that they have."

"And officially?"

"… It's classified beyond your clearance level."

"They haven't been able to come up with an official reason yet, huh?"

"Nope. Well… Let's go meet them."

End – Chapter 15


It's true that reviews inspire me. A review by MattCauthon1 about how unrealistic it was for them to ask for access to a top secret base and actually get it inspired much of the conversation above. So… Do you all think the explanation was good enough? Anything else I should explain for when SG1 meets Buffy et. all? Hope you all like it! Not only did I finish this (WAY!) faster than I thought, this ended up being much longer than expected too. Two chapters in two days!
