Of Butterflies and Men (Stargate Atlantis)

TITLE: Of Butterflies and Men
FANDOM: Stargate Atlantis
LENGTH/RATING: 100 words, PG-13
PAIRING/WARNINGS: None
SUMMARY: "Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man." - Chuang Chou. Written for sga_flashfic Must Be Dreaming challenge.


It's the what-ifs that snare him, creeping into those empty hours when most of the city sleeps.

He’d have been okay, he thinks, in another universe. One where quantum mirrors and glitches in stargate mechanics didn't make what-ifs into something more than a fairytales. Where you couldn’t change the past and that's a good thing, because sometimes the almosts that didn't happen are so much worse.

But he isn't, he's here. And some nights he can't close his eyes, because every time he does he dreams of what might have been... and knows that somewhere, somewhen, it actually happened.

Shivers down my spine... again. That impossibly lonely feeling, someone dreaming across vast universes that are always empty of people...

..I'm giving myself ideas again. >.
Huzzah for ideas! ^_^ Tis the true joy of writing, being able to nudge someone else's plotbunnies into action. *grin*

And Stargate really is downright creepy/depressing when you think about it. They've validated the existence of so many universes where things didn't go right... makes for a lot of apoca!fic bunnies hopping about. :P
