Done Too Soon

*
And each one there
Has one thing shared:
They have sweated beneath the same sun,
Looked up in wonder at the same moon,
And wept when it was all done
For being? Done too soon,
For being? Done too soon.
For being? Done.

~~ Neil Diamond

John Sheridan knew his time was up.

He found that knowing that it would come did not make it any easier. He had tried to finish it all, to make sure everything was done and plans were made but –

He found out that the twenty years were not enough. A lifetime or even five lifetimes would not be enough to do all he needed, wanted to do. Not enough to love Delenn, David as much as he wanted to.

He’d traded all those tomorrows a long time ago, knowing that this day would eventually come.

It was done too soon.

Jason’s Gift

Jason Ironheart had seen the ‘sleeper’ inside Talia’s mind, had known exactly what it was. But he’d made a choice. He left it alone. He chose instead to give her a gift, a small gift that let her know he still loved her without letting the other know he saw it.

When he became – what he became, none of those things mattered anymore and at the same time, he understood how much they did matter.

As a being of pure light, he knew how much a touch meant, a kind word to a single being. He hoped she remembered him.

Summary: Ivanova reflects.

The Cost

“We were fooled by them.”

Susan Ivanova, now retired from the Rangers, poured herself a cup of coffee.

“They convinced us all that they were right and the Shadows were wrong. Many good people died because they’d rather let us fight instead of doing it themselves.”

She stared at a spot on the wall for a moment.

“We lost so much, so many good people. I lost everything. But that was my fault. Not the Vorlons nor the Shadows. I was afraid. I am still shamed by his sacrifice. Do you think you can bring him back someday, Stephen?”

“Yes.”

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.

EXPENDABLE

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…
