There was a time he thought, not all goes away and yes, we will get it back, someday, eventually, perhaps even not too damn late either. That was of course before Daniel had died on him, which was of course before he'd died on him again and that was way before Jack had died on Daniel for a change, which was disturbingly close to the time Jack found out he could no longer kill him for the greater good, sacrifice him for the sake of the bigger picture.

He had made General only to realise he didn't cut it anymore.

You do. You do? I'm half expecting people to have my hide for even suggesting Jack has changed so much. Huh.

there's always been two sides of jack. i know i always dislike how in fics they would completely differentiate the "colonel" and "jack". it annoyed me. BOTH sides of jack are what make him jack. i think there's always been the instances where what they call "jack" has won over the "colonel" and vice versa. more so lately i think but maybe that's just me. the balance between the two has changed but there's still the colonel and jack in jack. erm, am i making sense?

YES! YES! That's it! Like you said, he's always been that man but the balance finally tipped; it's a wonder he made it that far. Thank you!

I loved it, I think it captured Jack perfectly and I totally agree with the whole the "Colonel" and "Jack" both being part of the whole O'Neill package that was mentioned earlier and yeah that's about all I have to say.
