Why Can't We Be Friends Ficathon Fic

Title: Certainty
Spoilers: Only through ‘Lay Down Your Burdens’
Rating: PG (bordering on G – so unlike me)
Pairing: Ellen Tigh and Tom Zarek
Background This was written for nyuszi for the The Why Can't We Be Friends Ficathon. The only prompt given was the pairing. I chose this particular twosome after seeing Kate Vernon at Dragon*Con. She made me want to try my hand at writing Ellen Tigh. Thanks as always to my wonderful beta k_julia who scramble to help get this thing postable.

Now I need an Ellen/Zarek icon to go with this. ;)

Thanks to greycoupon, I am aware that Sci-Fi has the first act of the season premiere up for viewing.

I'm not doing any analysis at this point because it's hard to put these scenes in context without the rest of the episode. I definitely liked what I saw. Everything seemed very true to the characters.

I also watched Mary McDonnell's interview on the Today show. OMG is she gorgeous! And she was wearing an outfit I'd kill for. The only outfit she had since the airline lost her suitcase. Now, I'm willing to try and upload this if someone hasn't already done so, but I have one problem. I copied the video from my DVR to a disc and while I can play the disc fine on my laptop I can't seem to copy the video from the DVD to upload. Any suggestions?

And now I must point you all in the direction of the master list for Why Can't We Be Friends Ficathon. Thus far I have only read romanticalgirl's fics she wrote for me. And, yes, fics, the woman write four based on my prompts - two Lee and Helo and two Archie and William. It's an embarrassment of riches! Shortly after reading those I had to scoot for an appointment with the eye doctor which meant having my eyes dilated and not being able to read anything. My vision is returning to normal so I can start checking out the other fics. Many great pairings. Go read!

I also think I figured out my LJ notification problem. Somehow lj_notify ended up on my blocked senders list. Sigh. Sorry if anyone felt I was ignoring them.
