    Summary

    "Lenora. You— you can call me Lenora," she stammered. His eyebrows raised again and, as they always did, settled, this time into a satisfied smile.

    "If you're certain."

    "Yes. Good night, Max."

    "A good night to you as well, Lenora."

    She walked to her quarters feeling lighter than she had in days— weeks, years— maybe before she even left Earth. That Vicar sure is something, she thought, falling into a dreamless sleep, her name on his lips swimming through her mind.

    Summary

    “This book is full of bullshit,” Nell says, tossing one of the vicar’s soft, leather-bound tomes onto the galley table, where it lands with a lackluster flop.

    “Bullshi—” Max sputters, affronted, and recovers his book from the table for use as a prop to gesture aggressively in Nell’s direction. “This sacred text is based upon hundreds of years of study!” 

    “And it’s all bullshit! Tripe nonsense that keeps the poor poor and makes the rich richer.”

    The vicar and the captain fight and they fuck, usually in that order.

    Summary

    (adj.) ententional - The property of being intrinsically incomplete in the sense of being in relationship to, constituted by, or organized to achieve something non-intrinsic.

    It’s through the efforts of one Maximillian DeSoto that the secrets of the universe will finally be laid bare, the Plan realized, and the struggle to find one’s purpose ended once and for all. In theory. It’s a bit of a work in progress.

    Summary

    TO BE RELEASED, STARTING JANUARY 2020!

    Who-a, who-a, who-a, welcome to Halycon!

    Neena has survived being de-frosted by none other than the known fugitive scientist Phineas Welles. They have also survived numerous fights and done countless odd jobs, all to make good on a life that was supposed to be waiting for the ill-reputed drifter turned Captain of a now-deceased bounty hunter's ship. And as time goes on, the once legendary chemically abusing, freakoid Casanova goes further away from their last sexual encounter, decades in their past and well out of their usual element.

    If they think for a moment that things'll ever get any easier, Neena gets a wake up call when their ship's once bad joke of a spiritual adviser completely upturns not just what Neena believed about their libido but also their aromantic tendencies when an attempt at helping a newfound and unlikely friend backfires.

    For once Neena has nowhere to run. And what's worse; they're not sure if getting away from the pesky man who leaves them all twisted and confused is what they really want any more.

    Summary

    did you ever think, Felix?

    I mean like, in a general sense, did you ever use your brain? Okay, okay. I'll be serious. I mean...

    Did you ever think you could build something, instead of destroying it?

    Did you ever think you were a man, and not a boy?

    Did you ever think you could have something to hold on to, some solid ground beneath your feet?

    A family? A home?

    -----

    "Hey, boss. Any particular reason why you live like... like you ain't got time left?"

    She didn't answer, and busied herself with her flask.

    "Oh, stars. You sick? You dyin'?"

    "It ain't that simple, Felix. I got someone waiting on the Hope for me. Someone I got a duty to."

    "Oh." His heart sank. "Like... a husband, or a lover, or somethin'?"

    She shook her head.

    "Family. Blood."

    -----

    This is a story about two people growing up - a process which is often messy, difficult, painful, and stupid. Especially when you're on an outlaw spaceship fighting oppression and restoring justice at the behest of a mad scientist, extra especially when things like love and friendship get involved, and super extra especially when everyone has guns. Lots and lots of guns.

    Summary

    An overenthusiastic (and slightly crazy) lab assistant finds the future to be Not As Advertised™.

    On the bright side, May's student loan is gone.
    On the dark side, she's an addict with no sense of self-preservation and an impossible mission. If her life was bad before, then it was only getting worse from here.

    Or: in which Parvati, Ellie and Felix find out that despite her silliness, their captain is a ruined woman whose only reason for living are the memories of absent friends.

    Summary

    What if C told B about S and N's night on top of the bar at the Shepherd's wedding after S left the UES for boarding school? What if this brought B and C closer much sooner than in the show? This is what would happen in my mind upon S's return. Eventual Chair, I just like to show them at their best :)

    Summary

    "Have you ever eaten a real apple?" she said suddenly, her eyes no longer distant. It seemed like a ridiculous question in the moment, even child-like.

    "Well...I-I don't think I've ever met anyone who has. Certainly not in Halcyon." Max feared there was some strange meaning to her question and hesitated, shifting in his chair.

    "Right. Of course," she stood and walked to the sink, "they wiped them out what? Eighty years ago?"
    *****
    The Captain grew up on Earth in the poverty-stricken vestiges of America's farmland. Her idealism and passion turn destructive when she finally experiences Halcyon. An injury finally sends her over the edge into a depression, and she needs the help of her ship's vicar to come to terms with the universe.
