Prompt: Identity

"Maybe you'd like a chart to keep it all straight?"

Once, Galen would've hated the XO for that. But they fought together on New Caprica, and they shared a secret song, and now Galen understands. Tigh didn't say it just to be an ass: to him, there is only one side.

Galen envies that surety. He's not sure who he is now. He is Cylon; he is Colonial. He doesn't know how to honor both.

Suddenly, one of the groupies runs to Baltar, panicking. "Mutiny!" she cries. "Mutiny in the Hangar Bay!"

And just like that, Galen doesn't need a chart anymore.

I really like this. It feels very true to Galen in the last couple of episodes.

I loved that scene with Tigh and Tyrol. This is very in-character and I imagine him having this exact thought process. Great ficlet that adds a lot of depth to the scene.

Well done. Tyrol may have thought before that he knew which side he'd ultimately choose, but I think that exact moment crystallized it for him.
