    Taako has a pattern, one Lup has noticed. And it's one she can't do a lot about.

    Summary

    ...

    Lup looked out of the window at yet another world they couldn’t save. She felt Magnus set a heavy hand on her shoulder as he walked over to look out the same window, even though he could barely make out anything other than the steady pattern of varying depths of darkness broken only by lightning. Taako hung back on the couch across from Lucretia as she wrote down every final detail that she could before they were torn away. He didn’t want to watch; he had seen it enough times already. He knew what it looked like, what it felt like. Merle… wasn’t there. But at least he had the patience that year to have only left them recently. Davenport stood white-knuckled and with gritted teeth at the wheel as always, expertly piloting them out and away from the planet, from the oozing blackness. And Barry held Lup’s hand as they both silently contemplated the Hunger.

    ***

    A deep dive of each year of The Stolen Century, centered around the development of Barry and Lup's relationship as well as the growth as individuals of each member of the IPRE crew. Accompanied by an exploration of the disturbing nature of The Light of Creation and The Hunger, and a century of planets explored.

    Summary

    A version of the stolen century, where each year focuses on one of the birds. It cycles through, starting with Davenport, working through to Taako, with a little bit of John thrown in every now and then. I hope to get through all 100. The plan is to update every Wednesday, but that isn't set in stone. Maybe more than once a week, maybe I'll miss one. But that's the plan!

    Summary

    “But I saw a brilliant light, playing fetch with Seven dogs running tirelessly from the storm. I saw seven dogs…"

    It's a quiet chill afternoon on the Starblaster. Or it was, till Magnus got bored and started a discussion about dog breeds and working outwhat type his crewmates were

    Summary

    "Because Taako doesn’t write his feelings down like she does. Taako cooks. Taako stress bakes. Correction: Taako is stress baking. On an industrial scale. Lucretia finds him in the kitchen. Obviously."

    It's always hard when you loose a dear dear friend. Even if it is for the forth time. It's harder still for Lucretia to let Taako deal with this all on his own.

    Summary

    Barry felt it first. During a particularly challenging year, Lup caught him crying, and she softly and sincerely consoled him. And just for a moment, the professional wall between them came down, and something shone through.

    Barry has always dealt with feeling "off" or "bad" for "no good reason" on his own. Lup reminds him that he's not as alone as he thinks he needs to be.

    Summary

    "I'm having trouble sleeping," he tells her. A pause. "Nightmares."

    "What about?" she asks, just like he was hoping she wouldn't. He's incapable of lying to her, unfortunately.

    More importantly, what does it mean to be a family?

    The inhabitants of the Starblaster figure that it's a lot of different things.

    Summary

    It feels so weird. Lucretia isn’t sure she’ll ever get used to being so soft spoken and terse to the people she’s known for longer than a lifetime. She completely got over her general skittishness and ‘professional relationships only’ attitude after the first couple cycles, deciding instead to open up her sarcastic and joking side.

    Hiding that again out of fear of shifting the already teetering balance of their relationship creates a lump in her throat that she can’t swallow.

    Summary

    When they set out from the Starblaster, the prospect of nearly a year alone with him seemed like more than ample time to have the discussion. So why had it felt impossible to broach, to the point that she was starting to worry that it would never happen?

    ...Lup assured herself, we just haven’t had time, yet.

    She didn’t count the nights that they had climbed into their sleeping bags and laid in silence, eyes open, and the thick miasma of expectancy hung in the air; when typical pleasantries wound down to a close and each waited for the other to say something new and important- no, they didn’t count.

    She rehearsed again.

    ---

    It’s Cycle 46. Lup has decided that this is the year she’s going to tell Barry how she feels. And damn it, she’s going to tell him. She just needs to make sure that they have enough gas to keep their battlewagon running, and that they aren’t robbed by bandits, and that she can keep Barry alive long enough to do it.
