    Summary

    The first time Bill and Barry brought their friend Klaus Wulfenbach home to Mechanicsburg, it ... didn't necessarily go well. On the bright side, though, they didn't kill him! It was a close run thing, but they did not immediately get him killed.

    Summary

    "When I was a child, I thought like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me."

    But the loss of childhood is not necessarily the loss of magic, just the knowledge, now, of its prices. Jareth won even as he lost, and as an adult Sarah begins to understand that, and to find joy in it.

    "Are you trying to kill me, Spock? Is that what you really want?"

    Summary

    Khan did not believe in karma. He believed in action and in strength, in hell and in vengeance. What costs he paid were not his own, but those imposed upon him. To his last breath, he believed that.

    Small TOS Khan character study.

    Summary

    Sometimes rescues can look a bit like kidnappings. And sometimes there's some overlap between mercenary work and space piracy. Or there is when the A-Team is involved, anyway.

    A-Team in space, everybody.

    Summary

    Sent ahead of an exiled cityship seven million souls strong, the crew of the nine-man aethership Voidsong trace the edge of the intergalactic void in search of a safe path, and stumble across a lone and powerful sentinel keeping watch against the dark.

    An original space opera, because I'm slightly crazy.

    Summary

    A tiny Kirk & Spock conversation I wrote in response to this tumblr post about how Kirk apparently sometimes forgets to fill out the log correctly. We all know who's the real captain on this ship, don't we?

    Summary

    There was something off about Finch. He wasn't another werewolf, wasn't an undead, wasn't anything John could pin down, but there was something wrong about him, and John knew it. He just hadn't imagined quite how wrong it might be, or how much it might cost.

    Dark paranormal AU.
