Reunions and Shovels
The world didn’t ‘end’ the way Daniel thought it would. He thought only the Goa’uld, or other hostile alien race, could cause this much damage to the earth. So, it was incredibly surprising when the earth decided it had had enough and it was time to fix itself from all of the damage that humans caused.
It wasn’t all bad though. Sure, tons of people had died and he was sad that there had been no way of saving them. And he ended up trapped in a room with a whole bunch of random people without anyway to contact the SGC, but it wasn’t all bad.
He had met Xander.
Incredibly funny, handsome and smart Xander. When the world was going to hell Xander was there and his presence calmed him. Daniel didn’t concentrate on the bad when he was with Xander. He talked about his friends at the SGC and about Jack’s stupid fishing trips. He talked about his wife who had passed away and how much he wished he could have children. Xander sat through all of it and listened to him, and then he started talking as well. Daniel got to learn about his friends and their ancient mythology clubs at high school and Sunnydale. Daniel had never met someone like Xander in his life. And after they left the room he didn’t want to let him go.
They found a way to contact their friends and told them everything was alright. They stayed with the people they had been trapped with until transportation was available to get all of them out. They stayed together the whole time. Xander had slipped his hand into his and Daniel gripped it tightly. He wasn’t going to let Xander go.
All too soon everything was almost back to normal. Daniel’s friends found him first and tried to get him to leave. He had refused. He was going to at least stay with Xander until his friends arrived as well. Jack had taken one look at their interlaced fingers and gave a long suffering sigh before telling him that they would stay as well. It didn’t take long before Xander’s friends found him. A pretty red head launched herself at Xander and began babbling and apologizing and checking him over to see if he was alright. Two more girls a blonde and a brunette pulled Xander into hugs as well, before an older man began cleaning his glasses and telling him how much he had worried them. Xander just grinned and nodded appropriately and answered questions. After his reunion with his friends Xander laced their fingers and introduced Daniel to them. Apparently, they took Xander’s new relationship seriously.
Daniel wasn’t sure if he was pleased or mortified when he got his first shovel speech.
