A reader asked for a piece from Moebius Squared, our upcoming SG-1 novel, with Daniel and Vala. I can't find a piece that's not too spoilery, so you're getting Daniel (and other Danyel) and Cam. Now in First Dynasty Egypt, they're dressing up as a Goa'uld entourage for sneaky plot reasons -- which means that once again Cameron Mitchell has lost his pants!



Daniel thought they looked quite a bit like a Goa'uld entourage, all things considered.
Teal'c, of course, looked the part already. Their Teal'c, Daniel amended. In his immaculate white shenti and gold bracelets he looked like a First Prime. Fitting out him and Cam was a little more difficult. Danyel's clothes fit him, but….

"Are you sure it's supposed to look like this?" Cam said for the fourth time. Danyel's shenti was a little short on him, a couple of inches above the knee. On Cam it looked like he was wearing a towel around his waist and nothing else.

"You look fine," Danyel said absently, hunting in a chest for sandals. Daniel supposed this must be his bedroom, though the low carved bed with its tufted wool mattress looked big enough for a small army.

"I'm kind of…." Cam gestured to his chest. "…bare."

"Vala will like it," Daniel said. His own shenti at least fit. And he was a little more used to the idea of wearing one. No, they hadn't worn them on Abydos, but at least the concept was familiar.

Danyel handed over a pair of worn leather flip flops. "These are going to have to do. They're too big for me, but they'll probably fit you."

"Thanks," Cam said dubiously. "How the hell are we supposed to fight our way in and out of stuff in flip flops?"

"You get used to them," Danyel assured him.

Daniel shrugged. "I see teenagers at home skateboarding in them."

"I'm not a teenager," Cam said. He tugged the shenti down a little further. "Let's go."

Out in the main room the other team was gearing up. "Ready?" Cam said, trying to look as professional as a guy can while wearing a towel and flip flops.

"Ready," Carter said. Her mouth twitched. She struggled.

"You know you want to," Daniel said.

Carter burst out laughing. "It's just that he keeps losing his pants!"

Vala cast an appreciative eye over Cam's chest. "I think he looks perfectly splendid."

"I never said he didn't," Carter said.

Thanks for this...just one observation though...Daniel and Cam are pretty much the same height...if Danyel and Daniel are basically the same person then why does Danyel's shenti fit Daniel but seems to be much shorter on Cam?

I think Cam is a lot more self conscious about it than Danyel is! Also, I wouldn't put it past Daniel to keep the longer one and give Cam the shorter one!

LOL

"Also, I wouldn't put it past Daniel to keep the longer one and give Cam the shorter one!"

If for no other reason than giving Sam the chance to hassle Cam about his pants.

Oh dear! It's probably a good thing that Cam didn't live in Australia working on Farscape.... *g*

Poor Cam. And Carter really is trying not to laugh! It's hard, but she'll try. At least until she sees what she's supposed to wear! :)
