    Summary

    Genius, like prince, is a role that can destroy the player.
    From bud to bloom to blight, this is the story of a living computer, the man beneath that spiritless shell - and the shadow that shatters his brilliance.

    (The first chapter of this work was originally published for Yuletide 2015, as By Rote and Rose.)

    Summary

    101955 Bennu hurtled alone in the void. It wasn't all bleak. Xie was an Apollo asteroid. So, xie had a near solar orbit, which wasn't exactly close. There were other Apollo asteroids, which xie never saw. Xie came close enough to Earth every few years to... not really be heard.

    So it was a complete surprise the moment that Origins, Spectral Interpretation, Resource Identification, Security, Regolith Explorer (OSIRIS-REx for short) came calling.

    Summary

    "I think I've worked out the bad news on my own,” Rush says as crisply as he can, like that will keep the tremble out of his voice, and now he's the one who can't quite look at Eli. “What's the good news?”

    “Um. Nobody will wonder if you're lying about anything anymore?” Eli offers weakly.

    Rush sighs and rubs the heel of his hand against his forehead right where the ache is worst. “I don't think 'good news' means what you think it means.”

    Summary

    "I never did have many friends, and those I had are nearly all missing. If I could bring them back, through resolving the paradoxes, without returning us all to fal'Cie control, do you think I would hesitate, even if it meant leaving my original timeline and living in stasis for centuries to create a new one in which I might not exist?" Hope considers his past and potential future.

    Summary

    When the producers of The Watney Report had contacted her about doing a final wrap-up show on the one-year anniversary of the Ares 3 mission's return, Annie'd nearly thrown herself off a bridge. She'd thought she was done with this shit.

    Summary

    Dear recipient

    Your three prompts: hurt/comfort, fix-it and crackfic based on this fail-fandomanon thread: http://fail-fandomanon.livejournal.com/79466.html?thread=379647594 charmed me so much that I wrote you a chapter of each.

    Was that a good decision? I honestly have no idea. But I can tell you I had a lot of fun writing the laudanum-soaked adventures of Tragic Keats, Evil Keats and their associates, so thank you for your prompt.

    All the best

    Summary

    There are strong hints that the Lakewalker civilisation is the remnant of a much more scientifically-advanced one. Sufficiently advanced science could be indistinguishable from magic. Or groundwork.

    Summary

    The worst thing, the thing Cosima could never tell Sarah or Alison--could certainly never have told Beth--is that she gets why Dyad did it.
