Quetesh. I always found that aspect of Vala fascinating. Not many people become hosts to blood-thirsty Goa'uld and live to tell the tale. Unfortunately, in the wake of Goa'uld defeat and the Ori threat, that particular subject was breached only tangentially, in The Powers that Be and Memento Mori, as well as in Continuum.

I was very pleasantly surprised about how the issue was addressed in the SG1 novel Roswell (Whitelaw and Fallon), which I absolutely recommend.

Today I bring you a fanfic about the time Vala was still host to Quetesh. It's femslash, nc-17 (hey, it's the goddess of sex we're talking about), pairing up Vala-Quetesh with Sarah Gardner-Osiris

I could not find an entire song for Roslin, oddly enough. Guiding the survivors of a barely missed genocide to a new home while dealing with petty political play and an untreatable illness appears not to be a very popular topic with songwriters. However, I want to highlight a few lines from Bette Davis Eyes that remind me of her:

She'll take a tumble on you
roll you like you were dice
until you come up blue

The song itself is overtly sexual and inappropriate to describe Laura, but I feel that image of the dice fits the manipulative streak we see from day one and throughout the series.
She's expert and subtle with friends and rivals; she has them where she wants them without them even realizing it; she lies through her teeth and she's not afraid to break promises made to her war enemies.
