gaius and six

fangirl challenge - [6/10] tv shows → battlestar galactica

It won’t be an easy journey. It will be long and arduous. But I promise you one thing. On the memory of those lying here before you, we shall find it. And Earth will become our new home. So say we all!

Give me a Caprica who realizes she’s started to forget the exact way Gaius’s chin curves… or the way his breath deepens half way through the night, or the way he smells, or the nose scrunch that accompanies his yawn…

the Caprica who seeks out the stream of her sisters for some memory they clung to for some reason, one she threw away, thought insignificant, them brushing their teeth together, Gaius giving her shit but helping her all the same one day when her shoe broke, the way she laughed at him when he got upset by rain on his brand new suit… some small, seemingly insignificant moment of love that moved the Sixes who were not his because it was love, what they were “built” for, but she’s the one who got to taste it…

Give me Caprica torn between never thinking of him again and Caprica desperate to seek out any moment she can because the pain of remembering him is comfort compared to a galaxy without him.

Give me Caprica crying while the world she projects around her isn’t the world she wants, no, but the way the light shone into his bed, across his back, one morning when the world was blue and grey and quiet and she learned the word “home”.

People with dark pasts didn’t always yearn for dark futures
—  Jonas Agallon, Gathering Darkness

The Cylons were created by man. 
They were created to make life easier on the twelve colonies.
And then the day came when the Cylons decided to kill their masters.
