    Summary

    The story of Kirk and Spock, told in the form of an epic poem, spanning Star Trek TOS, TAS, and the original movies, and including aspects of the reboot universe as far as it pertains to Spock Prime. True to the classical form, it will feature copious use of epithets and other poetic elements to which the modern reader might not be used (and which we usually don't want to see in contemporary prose).

    Structure:
    Prooemium
    Book One — Possibilities (TOS season 1)
    Book Two — Choices (TOS season 2 and 3, plus TAS)
    Book Three — Regrets (the "lost years", TMP, and TWOK)
    Book Four — Wishes (TSFS, TVH, TFF, TUC)
    Book Five — Hopes (Gen, the "other lost years", reboot)

    Jumps in the timeline and retrospection are part of the fun. ;-)

    Summary

    Tell me, dear Meloetta, of a tale of a ghost,
    With whom at once the whole world was engrossed;
    Tell me of the child who once with Team Rocket did fight,
    His victory the very reason for his plight;
    Oh, sing to me of the great of his power,
    Before he vanished within the hour;
    Explain to me of the great search,
    To find his mountaintop perch;
    Oh yes there is something any hero would dread,
    And that is an epic battle with Red!

    -an ballad of the fight of champions-

    The entirety of both Kimetsu no Yaiba Chapter 201 and Chapter 202 shorten into a poise poem (well, short of).

    Summary

    This third chapter is the first interlude of the ancient epic poem, The Ballad of Wayland , into the story. The Ballad is set sometime in the 8th or 9th century of the first era, although scholars often debate it’s time frame and legitimacy as a historical document. It is a backstory to Nahlnehviir and explores some original ideas about Orsimer culture. It also introduces a new city and province into Tamriel: Wayland.

    Wayland is a mountainous passage along the borders of Hammerfell, High Rock, and Skyrim. When Hammerfell left the empire, Wayland was allowed to stay and became an important trade and military route between Cyrodill and High Rock. Traditionally Wayland has included several incarnations of the Orsimer home city, Orsinium. It is also known as the center for the Orcish bardic tradition, which blends home grown styles with outside influences of Nordic, Yokudan, and Breton styles.

    A very peculiar re-telling of the classic ballad/poem Tam Lin, but with Daniel as TamLin, Jack as his love/rescuer, the rest of the Stargate SG1 cast in the background, and Hathor as the evil faerie queen.

    Summary

    Megatronus is caught up in legal troubles and decides to break Kaonian curfew to visit the Iacon Hall of Records to try and find a solution. There he meets one Orion Pax, a very flustered and enthusiastic poetry archivist.

    Megatronus also has a love of literature and poetry, one he hasn't had much ability to nurture, which he is excited to explore with Orion.

    Only one problem: Megatronus doesn't understand, yet, that the ancient Epic poetry he's reciting has some very naughty subtext...
