    Summary

    After Wolf 359's strange change in behavior and the brief alien contact, Lovelace finds herself trapped in a hopeless situation: the Hephaestus has undergone severe damage, her shuttle has become lost in space with Eiffel on board, and the rest of the crew now has even more reason to distrust her. But even in the face of insurmountable obstacles and the prospect of never seeing home again, she manages to find strength and comfort from an unexpected source, and so maybe there is a glimmer of hope for her amidst the landscape of a dying space station.

    (Lovelace, Minkowski, and the unlikely relationship that develops between them in the face of inevitable death)

    Summary

    “I know I'm no doohickey whiz,” says Jane, steepling her fingertips in her lap. “But if you're such a crack techno-gal—haven't you ever thought about trying to hack the collar?” She doesn't say, I'd help. She's not sure that she would, ashamed as she is to think it. In another month, maybe, or two—but there's something to be said for insurance.

    Or: how an ex-revolutionary teenager gets sent to serve as bodyguard to the Crockercorp heiress, and stuff goes with alacrity to crap.

    Summary

    It’s common knowledge among the paranormally inclined that imbibing a copious amount of Monster energy drinks at precisely 2 a.m. inside a 7-Eleven is a fast way to the land of the fair folk, but many people are unaware that similar effect can be achieved with fifteen shots of espresso and any big-name chain store that stays open late at night.

    You decide to stick with the classic technique. You grab two Monster cans off the shelf and pop open the tabs.

    She smells like… hm… like licorice, and sour blueberry candy, something bright and unnatural melting on the tongue. Like chloroform. Saccharine and sickening, the kind you can’t help but want more of. She smells dangerous, but the kind of dangerous you don't register until it’s far too late, you won’t even care, like a fly caught in honey—

    You jerk back, dizzy, and prop an arm on the wall to steady yourself. You’re naturally resistant, but shit, that’s a strong glamour.
