I was thinking of Sleeping in Light and I thought of an old Neil diamond song called "Done Too Soon" and it fit.

Done Too Soon

*
And each one there
Has one thing shared:
They have sweated beneath the same sun,
Looked up in wonder at the same moon,
And wept when it was all done
For being? Done too soon,
For being? Done too soon.
For being? Done.

~~ Neil Diamond

John Sheridan knew his time was up.

He found that knowing that it would come did not make it any easier. He had tried to finish it all, to make sure everything was done and plans were made but –

He found out that the twenty years were not enough. A lifetime or even five lifetimes would not be enough to do all he needed, wanted to do. Not enough to love Delenn, David as much as he wanted to.

He’d traded all those tomorrows a long time ago, knowing that this day would eventually come.

It was done too soon.

IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT

In the dead of night, all alone in his quarters, John Sheridan looked in the mirror at his deeply shadowed reflection. He had followed her into this whole thing, pretending that it was his idea, pretending he understood everything. But what he’d seen and done today, they made him wonder what the hell he was missing in the story.

He’d been sent here by Clark because Clark wanted to annoy the Minbari and also by the military back home, who’d represented a group of military and senate members who didn’t trust Clark or anything about him.

He’d quickly figured out a lot of things, or had he? Had she told him what he knew? Was she telling the truth? All of it or part? And Kosh, what part did he have in all of it? Had Kosh actually really ever told him anything at all?

He knew he was going a bit off the deep end but, damn it, he’d gone ahead in time, seen Londo as an old and worn out emperor of Centauri Prime, heard Delenn mention their son, for God’s sake!

“Lights.” The room became light. He went over to the bar and started to pour himself a drink but decided on water instead. He moved to the sofa and sat down, taking a sip of his water.

What did he actually know?

He thought of Delenn, of her smile, of the way she made him feel something he had never felt, not even with Anna. He thought of her voice, the way she said his name. And he knew that he was with her, always, through whatever came.

He set his glass down and went to bed. Just before he drifted into sleep, he thought about what she’d said and what it meant.

“Our son…”

Jason’s Gift

Jason Ironheart had seen the ‘sleeper’ inside Talia’s mind, had known exactly what it was. But he’d made a choice. He left it alone. He chose instead to give her a gift, a small gift that let her know he still loved her without letting the other know he saw it.

When he became – what he became, none of those things mattered anymore and at the same time, he understood how much they did matter.

As a being of pure light, he knew how much a touch meant, a kind word to a single being. He hoped she remembered him.

I am tiring of the B5 [age at Facebook... it is bogged down with rules and arguments over trivial posts and serious posts... and a snobbery about the trivial that makes me cringe. So here is a new one...

The Cost

“We were fooled by them.”

Susan Ivanova, now retired from the Rangers, poured herself a cup of coffee.

“They convinced us all that they were right and the Shadows were wrong. Many good people died because they’d rather let us fight instead of doing it themselves.”

She stared at a spot on the wall for a moment.

“We lost so much, so many good people. I lost everything. But that was my fault. Not the Vorlons nor the Shadows. I was afraid. I am still shamed by his sacrifice. Do you think you can bring him back someday, Stephen?”

“Yes.”

Worse than Hell Itself.

Stephen woke to a horrible noise. For a moment he thought he’d passed out in Down Below. Then he remembered he’d given up stims, had finally gotten himself clean and sober.

What the hell was that horrid sound?

He listened more carefully as he took stock of where he was. He was in a lumpy bed somewhere with artificial light. Mars Dome. He was in some seedy motel on Mars.

I am the very model of a modern Major-General,
I’ve information animal, vegetable and mineral…


It was worse than drugs. Or drunkenness. Or even hell itself.

Marcus was singing again.

Character: Vir Cotto
Note: For Babylon 5 Love Month
Summary: Vir is a freedom fighter.

~~~

Freedom Fighter

Vir had spent most of his time in Minbar with the religious caste, all of it, in fact. He really liked them. They were all somewhat like Lennier in demeanor and their teachings made him feel like nothing at home ever had. He felt a sense of belonging. He felt empowered to do something.

So he did. He forged hundreds, maybe thousands of travel papers for Narn refugees. Londo would kill him if he found out. The emperor would have his head, maybe even put it in the room where it was whispered he kept the heads of his enemies and talked to them.

Vir swallowed hard. He liked his head right where it was.

He’d been called back to Babylon 5 after a short trip to the Centauri homeworld.

Londo presented him with a fiancé and a gorgeous one at that. He wondered what it had cost his family to get such a bride as Lyndisty. He soon found out that a room of angry Narns was preferable to his bloodthirsty little sweetheart. He was glad he found out about her before she found out all about him.

“I blame those touchy feely Minbari.” Londo looked so disappointed in him. As much as he loved Londo, he knew he’d do it all over again if he got a chance. Not only had he learned about the Minbari. He had read quite a bit about humans and Earth History. That was why he’d chosen the name, Abrahamo Lincolni.

It sounded Centauri but anyone who knew Earth history would associate him with a great man who freed a whole racer of enslaved people on Earth. And if they thought Vir had done even a tiny fraction of what Lincoln had done, well, he could live with that.

EXPENDABLE

He knew she would never love him, had known from the start, but Marcus could not stop himself from loving her. She was brave and strong. Braver and stronger than he would ever be. Like his brother.

That was why he did it, he told himself. The galaxy needed Ivanova much more than it needed him. He was a bitter soul who had lost everything; he was expendable. His brother had not been, but he’d not been able to save him.

Susan he could save.

Soon he could finally rest and find out if the end really was the end…

These are from googling. About 10 and half years ago, my 16 year old daughter went out for a Sunday drive and just like John Sheridan, she never returned. I pray she went gently into the light as well.
