    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

    "The Captain has called for you."

    Max nearly jumps. It's been silent for hours. Most people have gone to sleep, or if they haven't, they're at least not causing ruckus. He sits at his table, reading. He'd been so engrossed in this book, a new one, that he hadn't even realized how much time had passed. He glanced at the clock. What could Castor want at this hour? Not that Max doesn't want to see him...

    "What does the Captain need?"

    There's a beat of silence, and then ADA repeats, "The Captain has called for you." but this time there's something in her voice. Urgency.

    Summary

    An overenthusiastic lab assistant finds the future to be Not As Advertised™.

    On the bright side, May's student loan is gone.
    On the dark side, she's an addict with no sense of self-preservation and an impossible mission. If her life was bad before, then it was only getting worse from here.

    Or: in which Parvati, Ellie and Felix find out that despite her silliness, their captain is a ruined woman whose only reason for living are the memories of absent friends.

    Summary

    (adj.) ententional - The property of being intrinsically incomplete in the sense of being in relationship to, constituted by, or organized to achieve something non-intrinsic.

    It’s through the efforts of one Maximillian DeSoto that the secrets of the universe will finally be laid bare, the Plan realized, and the struggle to find one’s purpose ended once and for all. In theory. It’s a bit of a work in progress.

    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

    It’s true that his anger all but dissipated at the hermit’s, but he was still the ass that he always was before that experience. He was just more self-aware. Unfortunately, the result of which also developed a “high”-ly enlightened persona for himself that freaked out most of the crew. Which was actually, really hilarious, so he hadn’t dropped the act just yet.

    There was still one person who could still get under his skin though.

    Summary

    The last thing Weaver West, captain of the Unreliable, expected to see upon arriving at the hidden laboratory of Phineas Welles was a cryo-pod. More specifically, she was surprised at the presence of a currently-in-use cryo-pod. “What the fuck is going on?”

    “Ah, yes,” said Phineas, his words crackling through the voice box. “It seems I haven’t been entirely truthful with you.”

    --

    An alternate path in which not one, but two Hope colonists aid in the take-down of the Board.

    Summary

    The Captain of the Unreliable is a peculiar woman.

    She's got a goal that she seems to take quite seriously, though nobody knows what it is, and Alex Hawthorn almost certainly isn't her real name, as she doesn't so much as twitch when you try to get her attention with it- and she just- she's kind of terrifying because she's got this thing she does where she just sort of glares at everything, but.

    But she cares, in her own way.

    Summary

    The men behind her were arguing philosophy, certainly Bakonu’s journal wasn’t that interesting, and surely the vicar couldn’t have much room to argue if he couldn’t speak the language to begin with. Suppose it wouldn’t stop him, though. Captain Hawthorne knelt and busied herself in removing a panel on SAM's arm.

    Summary

    She glanced at the contracts, and her smile faltered. "Oh, those are- those are actually for us."

    Sanjar suppressed a frown- always say yes to a client. Preferably, yes, and. "Yes, of course. An off-the-books interaction like this would be, frankly, quite unethical! A non-disclosure agreement and a contract for personal-business synergistic integrity is standard."

    Summary

    Life on Earth left Nikey drained and dissatisfied with just existing. They wanted to live and not just exist doing the same thing they had been going their whole like. Waking up. Working. Sleeping. Repeat. Going to Halcyon seemed like the perfect out. Of course, it wasn't as perfect as one would believe.

     

    (Nikey is an afab, he/they nonbinary. So many people outside of their immediate circle refer to them with masculine pronouns)
