    Summary

    Give me these years again and I will
    spend them wisely.
    Done with the compass; done, now, with the chart.
    The ferry at the dock, lit
    stern to prow,
    the next life like a footfall in my heart.

    – excerpt from “The Night Ferry”, a poem by John Burnside

    When someone asks you to think of the world, what do you think of? Your own world – small, insular, personal, intimate? Or the wider world – complicated, nuanced, complex? Is it beautiful, or is it dark? Can you see the beauty, or do you only hold on to the headaches?

    She is new to the world. Quite literally. And she needs to learn about it.

    Does Matthew Tkachuk have the patience to teach her?

    CW: this story deals with cults, polygamous cults, escaping cults, strict adherence to religion, gender roles, abuse, miscarriage, and a character with a traumatic past. Please be warned.

    Summary

    It wasn’t the prospect of pain that frightened him. Zhenya was a hockey player: he was used to pain, even to violence. But this wasn’t like a fight on the ice—tempers boiling over, hot rage spilling out everywhere—cathartic, necessary, even if it got him sent down the tunnel. This was different. There was nothing here to push back against, no way to assert his own will. In a little while Crosby would come to him, and Zhenya would open the door and let him in. Crosby would feed from him, taking what he wanted from Zhenya’s body.

    And then they would be bound.

    Summary

    When Spock chose Starfleet over the Vulcan Science Academy, he had not anticipated cohabiting with the most illogical, irrational, emotional human he ever met.

    On the flip side, Jim never asked for a Vulcan chaperone, especially one as snotty as Spock, son of Sarek.

    A Starfleet Academy AU in which Spock adapts to human life, Jim learns very, very quickly never to play a prank on a Vulcan, and there are far too many people after Jim Kirk's life.

    Summary

    "'Spock,' Jim breathes out, completely overwhelmed by the gesture—not quite believing that Spock knows him so well, that's he's already started researching, that he trusts Jim with a member of his own endangered species."

    When Jim gets it in his head to adopt an eight year old Vulcan, Spock presents a logical solution to the issue of Jim's humanity: marriage to a Vulcan citizen.
