"Daddy, can I go spend some time with Anne?"

Karl Agathon looked up from the book he was reading and was about to tell his daughter 'yes', when his wife, Sharon, interrupted. "No. Hera Agathon, if I remember right, you were grounded for what you tried to pull with Anne Adama the other day."

Hera bit her lower lip and looked pleadingly at her father, who just shrugged at her. "Sorry, sweetheart. Your mother wants you to keep working on your homework, I guess." There was a look between Karl and Sharon that Hera didn't catch as she sighed, hating her mother right then.

They say you can't escape destiny, right? I mean, I don't know if I did or not, but I remember a story Mom and Dad told me once about when I was little.

Technically, I didn't even get to choose the PB for Hera. Hera, Joe, and all of the "kids" of the canon characters from "Battlestar Galactica" came about from a night of crack talking, and I was told that I would be playing Hera since I play Sharon in another community. Her PB was already chosen by a friend of mine, who said that the only girl she could think of who was half-Asian and the right age was Kristin Kreuk. It was too bad that I absolutely hated the actress and really didn't want her to be Hera, until I started looking around to try and find pictures of her that felt like they were "Hera" and not "Lana Lang" from "Smallville".

I lucked out and found a lot of ones where she had a softer look with tons of curls, which is how Hera looks on the show right now. Hera Agathon isn't a true OC in the sense that she is an actual character on "Battlestar Galactica", but I've aged her 18 years and made up more of a background for her so that now the only thing that remains anywhere near canon would be the fact that she is the daughter of Sharon & Karl Agathon.

I never considered anyone else simply because I wasn't allowed to in our little crack game, but it all worked out beautifully because Joe, the boy Hera loves, has a PB of Jensen Ackles. Lucky for me, Jensen guest-starred as Lana's boyfriend on "Smallville", so icons could be made easily!

I think the thing that brings Hera to life are the soft look contrasted by the wild curls of her hair in certain pictures of Kristin, which to me describes Hera perfectly. She's soft-spoken, but due to her half-Cylon nature, there's another side to her that is always at the surface, just waiting to come out. So all in all, everything worked out well and I love my little girl.

Hera is very grateful for her nomination at thetammyawards, and would like to say that everyone should vote for bsg_tng! (Which is actually continued over at IJ now...)

Go BSG muses! (Of course, she's proud of her parents (callsign_helo & number_eight) for being nominated, as well as every BSG muse.

What would a thank you be without a banner, though?

Thank you!Collapse )

Go Battlestar Galactica!

The world is ending. You are in charge of planetary evacuation. Aside from your friends, family, and loved ones, you must decide who to save -- you can only save five people. Who are they and why do you save them?

The world has ended how many times already?

Dad told me how he met Mom, and what it was like when he was ECO with Boomer. It's odd, because it's almost like Boomer is my aunt, I guess? I don't know what to call her. The black sheep of the family?

Whatever it was, he was with her on Caprica (this was all before he met Mom, though), and all these people saw their Raptor and ran for it, trying to get onboard to be saved. They didn't know who to save – how do you pick? Are the women and children really that much more important than the men?

That seems sort of old-fashioned to me.

But in the end, that's what they did, sort of. The kids got to go, and then everyone got handed a number and Dad and Aunt Boomer just pulled it out of a hat. It was all random, so I guess what I'm saying is, did they save the right people? Did the leave the wrong people to die? Because one of the people they ended up saving was Gaius Baltar.

That was only because Dad was stupid, though, and gave up his own seat for him. Of course, if he hadn't done that, he would never have met Mom, and I never would have been born.

I don't know. I don't have a better plan. If the Cylons found us and tried to destroy us, aside from Mom and Dad, I'd save Joseph, Anne, their parents, and Admiral Adama, I guess. It leaves out Ms. Roslin and a bunch of others, though, so it doesn't seem right to make a list of only five people.

Maybe Dad had the right idea, after all.

I don't know if the sky is heaven,
But I pray anyway.

I don't want to be any part of a prophecy.

Mom told me once that there was a time where President Roslin had a shared projection with her, me, and another Cylon named Caprica. I haven't tried to do any projections because I don't want to. I don't like the fact that I could do it, maybe.

Maybe it was all Mom, though. I don't know. I don't want to find out. I suppose that's why I've been trying to learn more about the gods instead of the Cylon God. I just want to be normal. How can I be normal, though, when my whole life has been anything but normal?

Everyone was trying to protect me. I had a different "mother", a human one, when I lived on New Caprica. President Roslin even said I had a different name, but I don't want to know that. I just want to pray to the gods and have them take me away from all of that.

I've never talked to Kacey about stuff like this. Kacey's dad is Captain Samuel Anders, and I guess he was in charge of taking care of me when I was little on New Caprica. I don't know what happened, but I ended up with the Cylons and it was all back to being "the next generation of God's children" or something like that.

I'm just tired of all that. I had nightmares as a little girl about it, and now I just want to finally make it to Earth. Maybe we will. Maybe we won't.

I pray to my Dad's gods anyway.

How can there be just one? My whole life has been a series of changes.

[Locked to Joseph and Anne]

I don't know, I guess the easy one would be to say that it was when Joe and I finally decided to stop mouth-frakking and just… you know. Do the other sort of frakking? Only I wouldn't call it that since it wasn't. It was nice, even if it was in a rack and pretty crowded.

It was my first time. With the guy that, well, I love.


Being born. How's that for an answer? I'm this weird freak on the ship here with this prophecy weighing down on me and I don't even know what it means. I don't think I want to know what it means. Mom and Dad are always pretty hard on me to do well at ROTC, but they have a pretty big legacy to fill. Not as big as Anne or Joseph, I guess, but it's still pretty big.

It's just hard to be so different, and to have the rest of the kids on this ship looking at me differently.

Being born isn't a good answer, though. How about being kidnapped? I lived a whole other life on New Caprica that I barely remember, but I have to still see a psychologist about it. I guess I had a different name and a different mom, and then Mom says the Cylons had me. Why couldn't everyone just leave me alone?

See, I can't pick just one. Maybe someday, I will. Maybe when we finally get to Earth? That'll be my moment.

The muse community original_muses has been overhauled with a new mod and is accepting applications (as well as making sure people who are already members still wish to continue with it...)

Thought I'd pass this info along!

There’s the only method of transportation that’s really here for us right now. The Colonial Fleet. Our battleships. I’ve lived on Galactica nearly all my life, so there’s really no other choice for me.


I want to fly, and not in a Raptor. Mom would be mad if she knew that, I think, and Dad would be a little disappointed in me, too. I could be wrong, but I don’t think so. I see Anne’s and Joseph’s lives ahead of them, and all I can think is that being a Viper Jock would be the most amazing thing.

I’m better at it than Mom. I know I could do it, too. It’s just that I don’t really know how to tell her that without hurting her feelings.


I have to admit, though, that I love walking around our ship. I’ve got every single hallway memorized – who wouldn’t after a lifetime living here? I can run from my quarters with my parents over to the Adama’s place faster than anyone I know, and it’s not just because of the Cylon part of me, either. It’s fun. Part of it, I think, is that I still can be a kid. My childhood wasn’t exactly normal, so I want to live every moment as best as I can right now.

Running while flying. It’s the best of both worlds. Like me.

Does Earth count as fictional?

I guess I shouldn't say that, since there are still a lot of people onboard who think we're really going to get there someday.

Other than that, I really can't think of anything. Although I would have liked to have known what our society was like before the second Cylon war. All I've ever seen are vid discs of it. Was Caprica really as pretty as everyone else says that it was? Was it perfect, the way that the stories say? I don't think it was. I think it was just a place that was nice, but not perfect. Could anything ever really be perfect?

[Locked to Joseph]

I'd like to live with you somewhere. I don't know where. Somewhere where we can be alone, without having to worry about parents or rules or whether there's a free rack or not. Somewhere normal… somewhere in-between what I think Caprica used to be and where Galactica is now.

Is that too much to ask for?
