West walked into the great hall and stopped, surprised to see so many people there already. He needed to find his people and brief them, and he needed to find Boromir, Faramir and the Elf. He smiled briefly to himself as he paused. Elf... amazing how quickly you started to take weird things for granted when you went off-world.
He was beginning to see this mission as more than just a means to get home. A man couldn't stand beside another in battle without believing in what they were fighting for, and this world and its people seemed worth the fight. He allowed his mind to linger for a moment on Elendur, the Steward's daughter, and he smiled at the thought of the way he had left her last night. That she had been confused by his actions wasn't in any doubt. He would bet his next month's pay that no man had ever passed up the opportunity to have her touch him before. It had been harder than he cared to admit to take her back to her rooms, but he was glad he'd done it. He had the feeling that she wouldn't be quite so easy to forget as some of the other girls he had... helped out on away missions.
Moving through the hall he caught sight of Llewelyn, DJ and Calvin sitting at a table, but couldn't see anyone else he knew. He glanced at his watch - 0545. Fifteen minutes until he had called the briefing. He wanted to set off before the sun was up too high.
"Morning," he nodded at his people, sitting opposite Llewelyn and looking round for a serving wench. "DJ, you seen Thrace or Kawalsky?"
He knew not expect Lake until the last possible second, but Kawalsky was generally eager to get going, and Thrace would always be there on time just to piss Lake off.
He wanted to see Haldir too, to make sure they had gotten everything planned down to the last possible detail. The enigmatic creature seemed to be the one ultimately in charge around here, and it was obvious everyone looked to him for guidance, even Boromir. He was still a little concerned about the amount they had to do just to find a way to get home, but he understood that to get the gate crystal back the only way was to defeat this Sauron guy. Could he be any worse that a Goa'uld? Whatever, they had been through worse together West was sure.
