    Summary

    In the glade where the star had fallen, the gloom of the gnarled old woods was deeper than night, save around the blackberry bush that had broken his fall: the grass and the battered leaves were now luminous, moon-touched. There was a long pause, broken by the sounds of twittering insects and the forest folk, then, there was a loudly groaned, “Fuck!”

    The star rubbed a hand over his eyes, then flinched and held his hand up, spreading unfamiliar fingers up against the night sky. He turned his hand this way and that, curling and uncurling fingers, then he let out a softer, yet just as vehement “fuck!” and sat up, wincing.

    Summary

    The story keeps finding its way to Inej again and again, endlessly repeating, like the eternal refrain of a song.

    Once, there was a man named Orpheus who so loved his wife, that when she died, he journeyed to the underworld to bring her back to life.

    And Inej does not know why she keeps hearing it, or why it keeps coming to her in dreams, the story echoing loudly in her heartbeat. It is as if the universe is saying, This is important. Listen.

    And so she does.

    Or: Kaz and Inej before, during, and post Six of Crows, their lives running parallel to the tale of Orpheus and Eurydice.

    Summary

    Kirk learns that, when it comes to the cultural habits of Vulcans, it's not a good idea to trust other people's research. Spock gets to see a different side of his captain (that may or may not exist). There's a reboot of the TOS episode "Shore Leave" somewhere in the middle of all this.

    Note: The McCoy/Barrows relationship is fairly background, and is included due to its presence in the episode.
