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.

Wordcount: 2800 words
Also Posted At: An Archive Of Our Own

In the universe where Delenn and Susan Ivanova were married for political reasons just after the Earth-Minbari War, when Marcus Cole shows up on B5 with his flamboyant romantic soul, he latches on to...John Sheridan.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] muccamukk for the story idea and [livejournal.com profile] hearts_blood for the title.

If you haven't read muccamukk's excellent Susan/Delenn arranged marriage story, all you need to know here is that by Season 3 they've been married for over a dozen years—happily so for the last few—and Delenn is still full Minbari.

Set generally during Voices of Authority and Messages From Earth.

"I've been thinking." Marcus Cole's voice piped up from behind Susan's command chair a whole three minutes after she had started to believe he might actually shut up till the First Ones answered them.

Ten years with Delenn had taught her how horribly rude Minbari found sighing and rolling one's eyes, and the White Star was a Minbari ship, so Susan merely weighted her voice with longsuffering asperity. "Yes?"

"It must be very lonely at the top."

Susan's eyebrows crawled up her forehead. "You think the First Ones are lonely?"

Author’s Note: For Babylon 5 Love Month
Summary: In the dead of night, Joh has questions



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…”

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.

I hope this turned out, after dusting this off after being half done with it for ages now I’m super sick of listening to this song for a while. But I did finally finish the vid because if there was ever a ship this song was meant for I feel like it’s these two, with a courtship based on long looks, hand holding, cuddling, and sometimes kissing (with the occasional odd Minbari sexy ritual throw in). Happy B5 love month everyone.

One of the first things I thought of in signing up for Love Month this year was that it could motivate me to finally update one of my long-languishing WIPs.  Which I did!  And I'm hopeful (knock on wood) that this will give me the push I need to maybe finish one or all of them.

Summary: John has a terrible secret!


Sheridan’s Secret

It had been a long, tiring day and John Sheridan was getting ready for bed. He poured himself a drink and sat down at his desk with some leftover paperwork to do. He’d been surprised at how much time it took to do the paperwork at a space station. There were never enough revenue money nor funds from Earth Gov to keep everything in good repair and pay all the personnel.

He smiled as he put on his pajamas. He opened a locked cabinet and took out something that no one knew anything about – his very own Sheridan teddy bear.

10 Favorite Babylon 5 Quotes

*Marcus Cole: I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, 'wouldn't it be much worse if life *were* fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them?' So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe. ~~ "A Late Delivery from Avalon":


Delenn: If I don't see you again here, I will see you in a little while in a place where no shadows fall. ~~ "Confessions and Lamentations"


Sheridan: What does the candle represent?
Delenn: Life.
Sheridan: Whose Life?
Delenn: All Life. Every Life. We are all born as molecules in the hearts of a billion stars. Molecules that do not understand politics or policies or differences. Over a billion years, we foolish molecules forget who we are and where we came from. In desperate acts of ego, we give ourselves names, fight over lines on maps, and pretend that our light is better than everyone else's. The flame reminds us of the piece of those stars that lives on inside us. The spark that tells us: "You should know better." The flame also reminds us that life is precious as each flame is unique. When it goes out, it's gone forever. And there will never be another quite like it. So many candles will got out tonight. I wonder some days if we can see anything at all. ~~ "All My Dream Torn Asunder"


Sheridan: Ambassador, I've learned the hard way that governments deal in matters of convenience, not conscience. If they fall behind, it is up to the rest of us to make up the difference. If we don't, who will? ~~ "Acts of Sacrifice"


Ivanova: All love is unrequited, Stephen. All of it. ~~ "Rising Star"


Londo Mollari: I suppose there'll be a war now, hmm? All that running around and shooting at one another. You would have thought sooner or later it'd go out of fashion. ~~ "The Gathering"


Londo Mollari to Mr. Morden: Do you really want to know what I want? Do you really want to know the truth? I want my people to reclaim their rightful place in the galaxy. I want to see the Centauri stretch forth their hand again and command the stars. I want a rebirth of glory, a renaissance of power! I want to stop running through my life like a man late for an appointment, afraid to look back or look forward. I want us to be what we used to be! I want... I want it all back the way it was. Does that answer your question? ~~ "Signs and Portents"


G’kar: If I take a lamp and shine it toward the wall, a bright spot will appear on the wall. The lamp is our search for truth, for understanding. Too often we assume that the light on the wall is God. But the light is not the goal of the search; it is the result of the search. The more intense the search, the brighter the light on the wall. The brighter the light on the wall, the greater the sense of revelation upon seeing it! Similarly, someone who does not search, who does not bring a lantern with him, sees nothing. What we perceive as God, is the byproduct of our search for God. It may simply be an appreciation of the light, pure and unblemished, not understanding that it comes from us. Sometimes we stand in front of the light and assume that we are the center of the universe. God looks astonishingly like we do! Or we turn to look at our shadow, and assume that all is darkness. If we allow ourselves to get in the way, we defeat the purpose; which is to use the light of our search to illuminate the wall in all its beauty - and in all its flaws. And in so doing better understand the world around us. ~~ "Meditations on the Abyss"


Anla’Shok Credo: "I am a Ranger."
"We walk in the dark places no others will enter."
"We stand on the bridge, and no one may pass."
"We live for the One, we die for the One"


Sinclair: We have to stay here. And there's a simple reason why. Ask ten different scientists about the environment, population control, genetics, and you'll get ten different answers, but there's one thing every scientist on the planet agrees on. Whether it happens in a hundred years or a thousand years or a million years, eventually our Sun will grow cold and go out. When that happens, it won't just take us. It'll take Marilyn Monroe, and Lao-Tzu, and Einstein, and Morobuto, and Buddy Holly, and Aristophanes, and - all of this - all of this - was for nothing. Unless we go to the stars. ~~ "Infection"

It's still the 24th, right? Yes. Good.

I was going to write fic for this originally, but then Life happened and also I couldn't think of aaaaanything good to write about, so I'm cheating a little bit.

First, I made ten random icons. The three below, and the rest are here.

And as the second part (and this is where the cheating comes in), I want to link you to my scifibigbang that has kept me busy these past few months and that just went live yesterday, so maybe you haven't read it yet. And as a bonus you even get the gorgeous art my artist made for it! Win/win, right?

There's a bit of a story in there, probably a Season of No Shadows tale, but mostly just vignettes. Hard to say if there are spoilers since it's a bit AU-ish, especially the last bit. For the whole show, we'll say, just to be safe.
