Characters/Pairing: John Sheridan/Marcus Cole, background Susan Ivanova/Delenn
Rating/Type: G, M/M

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 [ profile] muccamukk for the story idea and [ 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?"

Summary: Stephen wakes confused.


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.

Summary: Marcus lays dying…



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…

Summary: Marcus is awakened.



Marcus never knew if Susan loved him or not. She had been dead many years by the time he awakened. They all were. Even Delenn. He read all he could find, weeping with new sorrow at deaths so long past that few even recognized the names.

When he finished his crying, he flew to Minbar. The Anla’shok temple was still there. He entered and was met by a Minbari man who was the spitting image of Delenn. He bowed to Marcus.

“Grandmother said you would come. We welcome you home, Ranger Cole.”

Marcus bowed, glad to be home at last.

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"

Pairings: John/Delenn, Jeff/Catherine, Marcus/fantasy!Susan, a hint of Londo/G'Kar, a smidgeon of Susan/Delenn, and many, many friendships
Rating: PG for innuendo? Not really, more of a hard G :)
Beta: [ profile] nenya_kanadka. Thanks much for the Tweet Tutorial!

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.

(I apologize for the somewhat slapdash nature of this year's contribution. Once again, I meant to vid, really I did. It's been a hell of a summer.)

First, a little introduction. I've been trying to figure out how to deal with my feelings about Marcus in fanworks for a couple of years. When I was in high school and first started watching B5, I was madly in love with Marcus. He was one of the things that convinced me to watch the show. He was a romantic, he was British, he believed that Kosh was Merlin, he was terribly dashing and charming and I did not see what Ivanova's problem was that she was not dating him. And, most of all, if you do not know how this sentence is going to end it's a spoiler and you should probably not click here )
