A drabble coda to "The Broca Divide."

No dough, no foul.

Thanks to Jerie for making it possible.

After SG-1 departed, High Councillor Tuplo walked back through the Land of Light with the members of his household. To Leedora he said, "I fear you were correct at the beginning."

Leedora nodded, but Melocia did not understand.

"Leedora knew the gods were testing us," he explained. "They wished us to treat them as mortals."

"And we did," Leedora added ruefully. "We abandoned their friend on the Dark Side."

"Yet they destroyed the curse." Melocia was still puzzled.

"Yes," Leedora said, "why would they help us after we failed the test?"

"Perhaps the gods are pleased when mortals fail."
