Title: Self-Evident

Characters: Cavil
Rating: G
Spoilers: 4.02/"Six of One"
Prompt: Firsts



"We're finished voting," Six had said.

For Cavil, it's a new and disturbing thought. The Cylons have always voted. Always. Frak, he even agreed to join this stupid crusade, all for the sake of consensus! Now their unity is broken, and he's lost without it. He sits in his office, thinking.

I guess, he decides, it means I can do whatever I want to.

That's another new thought.

Well, what do I want?

He taps his fingers on his desk. He considers their fleet, neatly divided; he remembers agony and Centurion bullets.

Then Cavil smiles, slowly, and makes his first decision as an individual.

Oh, excellent! Evil Cavil goes solo!

Scary insight into his mind, there - well done.

BRILLIANT.

Wow, I'm slightly terrified. Cavil terrifies me. Cavil thinking on his own - even more terrifying.

Lovely, lovely use of 'firsts'.

Thanks for the kind comment!

Cavil strikes me as the sort of guy who has been doing his job for years and years, and has been quietly thinking "I'D KILL THEM ALL IF IT WEREN'T FOR UNITY, I'D KILL THEM ALL IF IT WEREN'T FOR UNITY, I'D KILL..." the entire time. Maybe not consciously, but he's been thinking it.

And then he wakes up one morning, and he goes to the meeting, and there's coffee, and he's saying "whatever, we voted, so kiss my ass, Six" -- everything's normal -- then all of a sudden there's a frakking Centurion! And then he's dead again, dammit!

So he wipes the goo off, finishes making out with Boomer, and then thinks, what the frak, I guess I really am gonna kill 'em all. Great. Aaron, take a note: 'kill. them. all.' And forward that to Simon, would you?
OK, that's done. Hey, it's 10:30! Time for another cup of coffee.

AHAHAH. LOVE.

Cavil really is such a brilliant cylon. You write him perfectly.

Thank you! I'm working on some longer fics about Cavil's faction at the moment; I'll post 'em to bsg2003fics once I've found a beta reader.

Cavil is my favorite on the show, I love him to death. He's always having so much fun, no matter how horrible whatever he's doing today is -- genocide at 11:30, sexual blackmail penciled in at noon, picking up the coffee and donuts for Simon's Raider-lobotomizing get-together by two (with a quick stopover at the Resurrection Hub for a May-December snog, followed by boxing somebody's entire line), and then he's getting shot in the gut by the Resistance at three fifteen. All with a smile and a couple of blasphemous jokes.

Every day's a great day for Cavil, because guess what -- ♪ he's Number One! ♪

Ooh, I like this. I can easily see this as how Cavil reached his decision to retaliate.

Oh, very interesting - and Cavil, too! He's not one I often see in fic. Nice.

Evil Cavil! That's my favorite type, actually. Great drabble.
