    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

    Maxie and Archie freed Groudon and Kyogre, each doing so at the bidding of, respectively, Orgoreyn and Karhide, which are each trying to win the fight to be Gethen's voice in the Ekumen. But the devastation is worse than even what the countries intended, and in the aftermath, Maxie and Archie, now stateless, are in a safehouse together, waiting to be smuggled off-planet. And time and chance happen.

    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

    “A lack of feeling is a symptom of freeze,” he said, still grimacing. “Perhaps... well.” It was not like him to mince words, and I slowly began to worry. Perhaps this was some attempt at shifgrethor, or another incomprehensible Gethenian ritual which he assumed I knew and at which I could only balk. “To know anything of the intensity of it, I'll have to unfreeze it. To keep it from dying, if it hasn't. I've wasted enough time already; lie down.”
