    Summary

    "Thinking. Feeling. Acting. Characteristics that some old white men decided human nature encompassed and only we lucky humans, mind you, had the pleasure of its blessing. But what of corvids, who mourn with each other when one of their murder has died? Or an entire pod of orcas bearing the burden of a dead calf, showing solidarity with the grieving mother in her time of need?"

    "If I haven't convinced you yet, let me tell you the story of a young neanderthal man. He was between the ages of 25 and 40 by the time he passed. Detailed pathologies spelled out crippling injuries, including a degenerative disease of the spine and shoulders. His condition would have sapped his strength over the final 12 months of life, caused him immeasurable pain, and severely restricted his ability to contribute to the group."

    "The social darwinists will tell you that this was silly. That he was a drain on resources, and should have died. Instead, archaeologists found him buried with care, with one foot forward so he could take his first steps into his next life. Why? Our Compassion. So why should we spare androids the same?"

    (Excerpt from Dr. Rose Ainsley's TED Talk: Did Neanderthals Give Us Compassion?)

    Summary

    prax·is | \ˈprak-səs \ : integration of theory and practice

    Rey was one thesis away from earning her Master’s in Cultural Anthropology. She’d traveled the world and experienced every culture one could possibly think of. She’d witnessed atrocities. She’d witnessed the purest acts of humanity. Even at such a young age, she couldn’t imagine what more there was for her to experience… that was until Professor Solo sent her to write an ethnography in Boone County, West Virginia.

    Clyde left the United States Army as a broken man, physically and mentally. The transition back to civilian life was excruciating. Some days, the only thing that kept him goin’ was the memory of the mysterious, fiery girl he met in amongst the sands of Iraq. He never believed he would see his girl again… that was until she walked right into his bar.

    Summary

    It also didn’t help that the average glyph message was only three characters long, used no articles or prepositions, and usually had no verbs. What was the proper response to:: Curiosity; Sensation of great speed? Was it a question? A comparison?  Why, after a brief visit by National Security Director Mearing, did four different ‘Bots send:: Emphasis; overlapping? Why was a particularly bad joke by Bulkhead derided as ::Undercharged when there were actual glyphs for Not funny and Humor fail? How did any of that work?

    Summary

    An asymptotic-to-SGA-canon Stargate-and-others series. (Perhaps "tapestry" would be more appropriate; there are a number of stories that take place concurrently.) I will put more pieces up as they become polished enough.

    Summary

    His parents always said anthropology was a useless major that would never get him a job. And, to a point, they were right: Kylo is stuck in a dead end sales position after graduation. But at least he has his coworker Hux to complain to. As Kylo studies his office through the eyes of an anthropologist, maybe there’s a different kind of ritual he needs to explore: the courtship of a coworker.

    Summary

    “Tribute? It’s...it’s sugar.” Saihara shrugged helplessly. “You like sweets, right? And you can use it in tea-”

    “Sure. But I’ll tell you what this is.” Oma set the bag down on the table with a faint thud. “It’s, like, half of a do-it-yourself kit for the kind of thing I actually wanna eat. Wow, it’s like you totally know me!”

    Saihara, in the process of offering gifts, makes some grave miscalculations.

    Summary

    Captain Rex didn't usually like to take leave time, it was a luxury he could live without. But the recent attack on his home world of Kamino leaves him needing a rest from the war. Visiting Coruscant again causes him to think about his earlier visits to the capital, including his first days serving in the 501st. When he is unexpectedly given the chance to speak on behalf of his brothers to those who decide their fates, he starts to think about the things that are really worth fighting for.

    My first attempt to write about clone culture and to give Rex some motivations.

As far as she has seen, he's always had it easy. When a fancy senator arrives from Coruscant, Ahsoka learns lessons about trust, respect, and how the truths we cling to depend greatly on your point of view.
