"Daddy, can I talk to you?"

Hera Agathon was wringing her hands, slightly worried. She figured she knew what her father would say, but out of talking to her father or her mother? She was going to talk to her father. Sharon Agathon was off doing some work for the CO, so it was the perfect time to corner her father. Karl Agathon nodded very seriously at his daughter as he sat her down in their personal quarters, hands clasped and waiting for her to start.

"Daddy... Joseph Adama asked me to marry him." She paused. "And I said yes."

She winced, waiting for him to yell at her about it. Everyone had gotten so upset once the news had spread about Anne Adama marrying Nicky Tyrol in secret, so Hera just knew this wasn't going to go well. As soon as her father took a deep breath and rubbed his forehead, Hera frowned.

"Daddy...?"

"Is that all you can think about, Hera? Marrying a boy you barely know?"

Hera looked away. She knew Joseph well enough! Why did people always say that about it? Well, her parents, at least. They'd finally given their blessing for the two to date, but still...

"Your mother doesn't know about this, does she?"

"Hasn't your mother or anyone ever explained to you that some things are proper and some things are not?"

[Locked from callsign_helo , number_eight, & arrow_of_apollo]

Daddy understands, I think. I could be wrong, but I think he does. Mom, I'm not sure if she'll ever understand me. If she knew what was going on with Anne and Nicky, or what I've been thinking about with Joseph, well... I don't know if she'd approve.

She would probably say that I'm too young, or that I have some greater destiny in store. Maybe she'd try to tell me that I need to go back to ROTC and work more. I'm only a Cadet Lieutenant -- leader of Flight Constellation. Callsign: Phoenix, to be specific.

That's all well and good, and I honestly have been working more on homework, too. I've been studying more about religion, Daddy's religion about the gods, so it's not as though I'm slacking on my duties. I haven't even been hanging around Anne as much lately because I know she wants to spend more time with her new husband.

Just typing that out is weird. Husband.

Still, I can't help it. I've been in love with Joseph Adama since forever. I know he never really noticed me until strange things started happening on Galactica, and then we suddenly started dating and it was great. Even the sneaking around was sort of exciting, although I really don't know how much Joseph's parents approve of me. Admiral Adama told me once that he thought I would make a good match with Joseph, though.

So, maybe it doesn't matter what Mom thinks or says.

I guess what I'm trying to say here is, yes. Yes, Joseph Adama, I will marry you.

"Boy, what is it with you people? You think not getting caught in a lie is the same thing as telling the truth?"

I don't really understand Joseph and Anne Adama sometimes.

I think they might be wrong in the brain. Maybe Doc Cottle should look at them? I don't know, but it's pretty weird especially considering that Anne is my best friend and Joseph Adama is my boyfriend who I want to marry.

Anne and Nicky Tyrol got married in secret, and she told me and I told Joe and it all sort of snowballed down from there. But really, she lied to me! She didn't tell me the truth that she'd gotten married for months. How can I trust her? I love her, I do, but how can I trust her now? Just because I didn't know (and no one knew) about it, does it really make it okay? Sure, her father and grandfather would've gotten upset right off, but maybe not as upset if they'd known right away instead of finding out later.

It's still a lie.

And Joe, I love you too. But that whole thing with Paya...? I don't understand. She told me that you two had already frakked, and maybe it's not a big deal to you, but it is to me. It's lying to your girlfriend who wants to marry you and...

You know what? Never mind.

I'll be in my quarters with Mom and Dad, away from anyone with the last name of Adama for awhile.

Just as a reminder, despite the finale airing for BSG, this version of Hera Agathon remains entrenched in her own universe and that won't be changing anytime soon. That said?

Frakking amazing finale.

I think people here are giving up. Or maybe they've already given up and they don't want to admit it.

Let's face it; we've all been on Galactica for about twenty years now, trying to find Earth and we haven't had any luck yet. We're just searching, over and over and over and shouldn't we stop now?

I sound so pessimistic, I guess. Mom and Dad wouldn't be happy.

But it's the truth, and I think people here just don't want to accept the fact that maybe we should stop before Galactica falls apart. Am I the only one who can see this because I'm not human? No, that can't be it because Mom's not human, either, and we're the only ones like this on Galactica... but sometimes, I wonder if Mom forgets she's a Cylon.

I don't forget what I am, ever. Even when I'm with Joseph, I always remember that I'm a half-toaster and there's got to be something wrong with me for Cylons and humans to both be trying to take me or have strange prophecies about me. Still, it isn't an explanation for why I'm the only one who doesn't lie, at least to myself, about our future.

We're all going to either find some planet and just live there, like they did way back when on New Caprica, or we're all just going to die here, on Galactica.

[Locked from Mom]

This probably sounds horrible, but I can't be like her. I don't want to be like her. A Cylon? Well, half-Cylon, at least. I just can't. I can't believe in the Cylon God, or all these prophecies about me, or even being a Raptor pilot like her.

People give you looks, you know. "Oh, you're the freak daughter of the Cylon on Galactica." Well, maybe people in ROTC don't, or at least they're nicer about it, but it still bothers me. I can still imagine it.

I just want to be a girl. Just a girl. Just a girl who Joseph Adama might want to marry date and not be ashamed of. Dad, I know you're reading this and you're probably thinking that it's all okay, but I know what you had to go through to be with Mom. I don't want Joseph to go through any of that to be with me.

So, I made a decision. I'm going to work harder on studying up on the Scrolls of Pythia and the gods -- especially the one I'm named after. I'm going to officially switch over from studying Raptors to learning how to be a Viper jock, once I'm old enough and ready enough to do it.

It's little things, I know, but I just want to be me. A human. Not a freak.

Please don't tell Mom until I'm ready to talk to her, okay guys? Thanks.

Love, Hera

My psychiatrist says that the nightmares I still have of New Caprica are things that can't really be explained yet because they're not really nightmares of what happened. He thinks that I need to realize what happened, accept the bad things, and move on. Accept the good things, too, like the fact that I at least had a woman who wanted to take care of me while Mom and Dad were busy on Galactica.

But still, how weird is it that I can remember certain things from that time? I was just a baby.

Laughter is the best medicine, right? But I can't laugh about it. If I could, then I wouldn't be twenty years old and still having nightmares. I keep thinking one day we'll find Earth and everything will be fine, and then maybe one day we'll all laugh about how silly we were worrying about things like food rations and callsigns that people didn't like, or maybe things like mouth-frakking and all the scuttlebutt that went around.

I hope so. I just want to laugh again. Lately, the only time I do is with Joseph, and I shouldn't. I need to start depending on myself for happiness, at least that's what my psychiatrist says. Maybe it will get better.

It's not that bad right now, don't get me wrong, but I want it to get better. I want to be able to laugh the way that Daddy says he used to before the attack.

I know that Joseph will grow up to be like his father and grandfather someday, and I hope I can be there to see it happen. Thank you, sir, for all your advice.

I might be related to you soon, too, but I'm not sure yet.

Yours,
Cadet Lieutenant Hera Agathon, Leader, Flight Constellation
