    Summary

    Year by year she has sat on the narrow balcony and watched Annares grow greener every spring. It is a hesitant thing, the settlement of the moon, a new society opening its first bright leaves. The spaceships are still leaving and arriving. No one wants to talk about it – not her parents or her teachers at school. It has not been in the newspapers since the first ships left. It seems to Maena that her planet is turning its back on the moon, turning in shame or disgrace, as though afraid to look.

    Summary

    Foggy and Matt always said that one day they'd make sedoretu together, but in this day and age that's easier said than done. They have the right people,
    There's Matt to give them purpose, a reason to act a reason to be, he is the fire that keeps them all going, and keeps them on the straight and narrow.
    Foggy makes them happy, makes the journey a thing to enjoy not endure, he is sunshine keeping them warm, and cheerful and whole, through all the troubles they face/
    Karen works to keep them alive, is the razor sharp knife that will do anything to keep them alive, hold them together, who knows there is no cost too high to protect those she cares for.
    Claire is the one who patches their wounds, who fixes them so that they can get up and carry on when Matt is torn and bleeding from his missions, when Foggy feels too worn down by the shadows to keep cracking jokes, when Karen cries at the nightmares of what she has done to keep them all safe, at what she’d do again if she had to.
    They have the right people but building a marriage takes work even if you do find the right people, especially when you're keeping secrets from each other.

    Summary

    "For it seemed to me, and I think to him, that it was from that sexual tension between us, admitted now and understood, but not assuaged, that the great and sudden assurance of friendship between us rose: a friendship so much needed by us both in our exile, and already so well proved in the days and nights of our bitter journey, that it might as well be called, now as later, love... For us to meet sexually would be for us to meet once more as aliens. We had touched, in the only way we could touch. We left it at that. I do not know if we were right." – Ursula K. Le Guin, The Left Hand of Darkness, page 267.

    Summary

    Laurie's a junior Star Fleet pilot in the war against the Borg, he's crashed on one of the Hainish moons of the planet Winter, and he's pretty much buggered. Not in a good way either. Then he's picked up by Sandy Reid, Star Fleet Medical Officer, also not in a good way. Treated to some of the good meds, and dragged off to a Star Fleet queer party, he's having an eventful day, and war.

    Of course, in the meantime he's been presumed dead. So it's a bit of a surprise to his old school pash, Vulcan officer Ralph Lanyon, when he turns up onboard...

    Summary

    “I love what we have together, and…I want to get married with you. I want us to find a woman and a man we both like, so we can form a sedoretu together.”

    “Oh,” she says. “But I don’t even know if we like the same type.”

    Relationships are so much more complicated when you’re expected to have three at once.
