    Summary

    did you ever think, Felix?

    I mean like, in a general sense, did you ever use your brain? Okay, okay. I'll be serious. I mean...

    Did you ever think you could build something, instead of destroying it?

    Did you ever think you were a man, and not a boy?

    Did you ever think you could have something to hold on to, some solid ground beneath your feet?

    A family? A home?

    -----

    "Hey, boss. Any particular reason why you live like... like you ain't got time left?"

    She didn't answer, and busied herself with her flask.

    "Oh, stars. You sick? You dyin'?"

    "It ain't that simple, Felix. I got someone waiting on the Hope for me. Someone I got a duty to."

    "Oh." His heart sank. "Like... a husband, or a lover, or somethin'?"

    She shook her head.

    "Family. Blood."

    -----

    This is a story about two people growing up - a process which is often messy, difficult, painful, and stupid. Especially when you're on an outlaw spaceship fighting oppression and restoring justice at the behest of a mad scientist, extra especially when things like love and friendship get involved, and super extra especially when everyone has guns. Lots and lots of guns.

    Summary

    “You’re a loose end,” Clyde says, and Evie moves without thinking. She doesn’t think about how she’s responsible for the entire Unreliable crew, or that she’s the basket that Phineas put all of his eggs in. She’s only thinking about how Felix, exposed, has a gun to his head.

    Summary

    Just a fun thing exploring the relationship between Nyoka and the Captain. Who knows how long it'll go on for! Who knows if there'll be any real plot. I don't!

    Just a fun fluffy thing. Also the Captain is nonbinary (they/them)!

    Summary

    Violet Harper is the Captain of The Unreliable. She often takes on new crew members and seems to fall for a certain dork named Felix Millstone, completely by accident.

    She never does anything about it, despite it increasingly getting harder not to say or do something stupid to him.

    After a close encounter with a Mega Raptidon, words are exchanged and truths are unveiled. Turns out bringing down the Board and navigating their feelings for each other are harder than anticipated.

    Summary

    Living in Halcyon means needing someone to watch your back, but that can make a person feel vulnerable.

    The trick is finding someone who deserves your trust, and then actually following through on trusting them.

    Summary

    Felix never liked the OSI types anyway. Instruments of the Board through and through. All they’re good for is trying to convince anyone with half a mind of their own that they’re about to stray from the “Plan” and oh gee wouldn’t it be a lot better if you just shut the fuck up and sit the fuck down in your place on the corporate assembly line.

    Felix can’t imagine living that way. On one of the Colony planets, he means. Not being a member of the OSI. Though he can’t imagine that either. And he definitely has no idea at all about the kind of monstrous man who takes it as his personal duty to keep people in chains through promises of comfort and salvation and some forsaken Plan.

    Summary

    It suddenly occurred to Felix how tiny the table was with the two of them huddled around it - their knees touch and the skin underneath his clothes was hot and electric all at once despite the multiple layers of fabric separating them, and Felix was feeling that oddness in his stomach again.

    Summary

    Captain Parsley McCrae loved the oddballs and outcasts he somehow managed to catch in his orbit. He didn't realize that they had all chosen to stay there, and that meant showing up for their captain when he needed them.

    Summary

    You don’t have a problem admitting, even if it’s just to yourself, that you have a soft spot for the kid. He’s earnest, and he’s clever, and he’s got a smile that’s damn well blinding when he chooses to unleash it. And he’s capable, too. But still, even with all of that, the kid’s just a kid.

    Summary

    Captain Alex Hawthorne kneels for nobody - not any bureaucrat, not the Board, and absolutely, completely certainly not for the rigid, foul-mouthed vicar whose constant "well-meaning advices" and holier-than-thou attitude frustrate her to no end. But as this frustration takes on a whole different form, she is forced to confront the fact that there is more to her than the stubborn, sarcastic asshole, the persona she crafted when she took Hawthorne's name - a touch starved, traumatized woman, in desperate need of a confession.

    Summary

    When you were randomly chosen by Phineas to be awoken from cryosleep to save the Halcyon colony from the corproate overlords, you were happy to help. How will your adventure end, and what will happen along this one big adventure to save a colony from rich capitalist assholes?

    Angsty and fluffy with a hint of crack. There won't be smut (sorry lmao just not comfortable writing it), but it'll get close. I'll be honest, this is entirely self-indulgent.

    Trigger warnings: guns/weapons, violence, blood, bruising, mentions of abuse. Specific TWs for each chapter in notes/chapter summaries for each individual chapter. There will be spoilers for the main game story, as well as companion quests, so if you don't want spoilers, save this for later. You have been warned.

At least until her crew member Ellie comes knocking at her cabin door. As it turns out, being cramped up in a space ship for a while can leave you a bit... needy.
