Four minutes...

"A seat at the table," Everett countered.

"Control," Elizabeth stood firm.

Three minutes...

Everett's glare showed a glimmer of respect.

"Control," he agreed.

Elizabeth was awesome in that episode, wasn't she?

And it did feel freaky! I mean, it was Ancient tech... it didn't always work....

Thanks!

Oh, I really enjoyed this! Especially Zelenka's smitten face, and everyone else's 'not taken by surprise at ALL' faces! Except for Everett's, of course.

Nicely done!!
