    Summary

    An examination of the how plants fit into the Vorkosiverse, with special reference to Ekaterin and her place in Miles's life. This essay was written in 2007 and originally posted on my LiveJournal. I've made a couple of small edits based on the comments there. Spoilers for all the books through Diplomatic Immunity.

    Summary

    Darcy ends up stuck in the Avengers Tower when it goes into quarantine mode. Good thing she's got Bucky and Steve there to keep her entertained. At least, until they hatch their elaborate and sneaky plan to get into her pants.
    Yeah, whatever, she's fine with that, too.
    (Shameless smut which was meant to be a quickie but escalated quickly to 5000 words. Not sorry at all.)

    Summary

    “You have never once been careful in your entire life.” Bucky huffs out a laugh. He looks away. “Maybe I’m offended you didn’t think to ask me.” He says it like a joke, but he can’t bring himself to laugh again.

    “Bucky,” Steve says, scandalized. “You’re my friend. I’m not gonna use you to experiment sexually.”

    Summary

    In their defence, the dead man they shot woke up again almost immediately. In their further defence, that didn't normally happen, even in Egypt, so they could be excused some mildly violent curiosity on the subject, couldn't they?

    Shortly after the first movie, Rick, Evie and Jonathan meet Methos. It goes surprisingly well, really. After a few hiccups.

    Summary

    Why do people go to class reunions? In our current world of Facebook, Linked In, Twitter and every other permutation from e-mail to iPad, it's possible to stay in touch with people we knew in high school-- and completely avoid those we never wanted to see again. But maybe some memories can only be faced down in person. Frederick I. Iverson explores this in his article on the reunion of the Sunnydale Class of '99. The date is July 26, 2014: This is Talk of the Nation, for NPR.
