Not that he'd necessarily always say no (when he was single again), just that in the instances we saw during the series, he wasn't interested.

So yes, she just might get very physical with Jacob in this situation.
numbat wrote:Right now I'm actually a bit annoyed with the show writers for slipping in this convenient little backstory for Jacob (ie, being a widower), because when you start really thinking about it, this must absolutely colour his view of life and his actions (and not in a good way!) I want him to be happy but he's resisting me.
numbat wrote:That's really interesting Joyce. I went back and watched that bit of Electro again (what a hardship!!), but the overwhelming feeling I get from Jacob whenever he talks (either directly or obliquely) about the death of his wife, is just sadness. My take on that scene is that he's telling her that she's lucky that they will have a second chance at life together (whereas he and Maggie didn't).

"It keeps getting dark, over and over
A dew of sadness blankets everything
The air's thin and warm and i have trouble breathing
I feel lost and anxious and trapped"
Those lines have been going around in my head, and i think that's how Jacob feels some nights when he's alone.

Have felt all along we really never got any closure . So much potential. Geeez...even Lost fans are getting closure and answers! Really wish-if the show nevers come back-that SG would at least write our future seasons...dont want much do I ?
Anyway...keep the fanfics comming!!!!

Don't worry about being cheeky - the more EH fics the better. If both of us write the same basic plot - we'd most likely come at it from different angles, it might be interesting. So - write away if you so desire!
