Cox had thought he’d learned he’d always be alone, and was trying to come to accept what he knew life held for him. Even after finding out about an upcoming medical study that was barely discussed by the medical profession, derided by all respectable sources, fully aware of what it promised and certain he’d never be invited – he surprised himself and applied just the same. Even when his application for an interview passed and he was invited to see if he qualified for rejection, he didn't allowed himself to hope. But maybe it was possible he hadn’t learned as well as he'd thought.
A story about love, family, building and breaking and repairing attachments, and how to carry the past and move into the future.
And if you see this world as ugly and thin
Then you’ll be so cruel to the touch, you’ll lose the body you’re in
To a land of angry soil that swallows boys and coughs up men
I’ve seen you taste the salt of your tears
You always stop when you start, and listen, you would be smart
To keep yourself in a world of mothers, sisters, daughters and wives
- “Mothers, Sisters, Daughters and Wives,” Voxtrot
Innogen Bashir had always known exactly what she wanted to do with her life. She’d planned it out in early childhood and made sure to do whatever she could to keep everything on that path: pursue design as a vocation, move to London and take a job at a prestigious firm, marry the woman of her dreams and create a body of work that would live on long after her, and to top it off, still have time to go out dancing. That was her plan.
But as the saying goes, when man makes plans, God laughs.

Arthur Shappey, unofficial air steward, is also known to a very few people as the Iron Moth.
If you’re sending yourself out to the edge of civilization, people expect it to be done for fame and glory – but then, Julian Bashir has never been what’s expected of him. He’s quite happy to agree with the reasons other people provide, because he isn’t sharing the private whys and wherefores when people are more than happy to fill in the gaps themselves. There are other, better things to worry about, work to be done and friends to be made – possibly even a lover, if he’s lucky…
...all while fighting to maintain his worth, and remain exactly who he’s always been.
Boundary negotiations, compromises, and mutual understandings.
