In addition, I think we as part of the SGA fandom and any other fandoms who want to join (please post this around), should take a moment to write some drabbles on the theme of gay marriage. Get ourselves pumped up and maybe
donate, or at least chip in. For everyone who writes a drabble or a fic as a comment to this post today, I'll donate a five dollars to the campaign, up to $150 (it would be a lot more if I wasn't a graduate student, trust me). If anyone else wants to make a similar pledge, let me know and I'll add you.

Thanks and I look forward to reading your drabbles.

Apropos of nothing, Daniel leaned over to whisper softly in Jack’s ear, “Around 3000 BC, the Ancient Egyptians originated the phrase ‘without beginning, without end’ to describe a wedding ring.”

Well, perhaps not apropos of nothing. They were attending a wedding after all; it was probably only natural that Daniel would be thinking of weddings and Egypt. Although why watching Dr. Rodney McKay bind himself eternally to Lt. Colonel John Sheppard on a beach in California would remind Daniel of Abydos and Sha’re was anyone’s guess.

Jack half turned toward the younger man to offer comfort or whatever it appeared Daniel needed. But his thoughts died half formed on his lips when he felt something cool and smooth slide over the fourth finger of his left hand. His eyes latched onto the simple gold band; the ring felt heavy and strange after so many years of emptiness.

He did turn then and met blue eyes filled with love, hope, and a touch of nervousness. Jack leaned in to whisper his own bit of trivia, “The trend of men wearing rings began during World War II, to remind soldiers of the people they’d left behind.” Retrieving a small black box from inside his pocket, Jack slipped a reminder on Daniel’s finger, a simple silver band ‘without beginning, without end.’

To participate, leave your own story or drabble on this thread.

Aaaw! Thank you for sharing this very touching piece. Love the way the timeless quality of love is central to the very modern, forward movement in same-sex marriage.
