    Summary

    Jyn launches herself at his neck. He staggers back slightly, but his arms are steady around her and his laugh is soft and inviting. The sound cuts right through the rigid walls of professionalism and distance that she has built around her heart for most of her life, the walls that she has been reinforcing every hour for the last several months. And it’s sappy and sentimental and utterly out of character for her, but Cassian won’t tell on her and she thinks maybe she’s allowed this one moment. She presses her face against his neck and whispers, just loud enough that he can hear, “I’m home.”

    --

    A collection of one shots and random short stories, all of them in response to various prompts or "20 questions"-style posts on tumblr, because I needed somewhere to archive them. Current chapter: And Jyn has an idea, because she is very super smart and knows what to do.

    Summary

    A young English woman learns her long-dead father may be alive & involved in an ugly venture in the late 1700's conflict between European powers struggling for political and commercial dominance in the Americas. Accompanied by a handsome Spanish captain, who may be either her bodyguard or her jailer (and his very tall & rather violent companion), they search for the mysterious pirate who raised her and wind up rescuing a desperate young Middle Eastern man trying to save people from a cruel fate in the wilderness that is Colonial Florida.

    Inspired by (requires less research than "based on") a REAL incident in American History. (This stuff writes its RebelCaptain self.Google it!) Pirates, Storms, Rum, Religion, Philosophy, Ideals of the Enlightenment corrupted by greed and the lust for power, cross-dressing. Spain v England while Portugal gnashes its teeth in the background and the American Revolution gets put on simmer. More than you needed to know about Indigo production, actual bodice-ripping of actual bodices (where appropriate), swords, 18th cen. History is full of angst and pain (and so is my writing) but I am going to try to make this little less. Fantasy. Sexy fun where I can manage it but this is me.
