    Summary

    The MJN crew has to take an engaged couple to a party in San Tropez, but the couple's behavior does little to soothe Martin's current romantic worries. In an effort to buck him up, the rest of the crew share their own stories of romance past, and all the travails that came with them. Takes place after "Xinzhou" but before "Yverdon-les-Bains."

    This is written in emulation of the style of the original, attempting to be as much like an additional episode of the series as possible.

    Summary

    In a world where Martin Crieff chose not to be a man-with-a-van, and instead became a hit-man, his hardest job to date was Douglas Richardson. It would have been an easy job, really, had Douglas not been rather handsome... and wearing a pilot's uniform

    Summary

    Today was not a good day. Martin knew it was coming, but he thought if he wished enough, maybe he could stop it. But no, not this year. Not this year, not the year before, or the year before that and so on. The day always came and he just had to let it happen, whether he liked it or not.

    Summary

    Dear Gentle Reader,
    After being "encouraged" for a few days to share this with you all, I am. This was originally part of the last chapter. I cut it because it didn't quite flow with the rest of the chapter. I saved bits and pieces of it and wove it into the conversations. It is quite different in tone from the rest of Vapor Trails. It even had an entirely different music list for it.

     

    Mozart-Symphony No. 40 in G minor, K 550 [complete].
    Benny Goodman- "Sing, Sing, Sing"
    Kenny G- "Songbird"
    Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass- "1980" and "Rise"

    It will show the dynamic of Douglas' former life in full.
