    I had a story idea and decided to write it with two sets of two pairings each. If you like, tell me what you think the original idea was.

  3. Summary

    Steve, those who love him, death, and sex. I ended up with a bit of a thematic series, so I decided to just link them.

  4. Summary

    This is a rough listing of the stories I've written about Dr. Leah McCoy and her captain James T. Kirk of the ISS Enterprise. I've arranged them here according to internal chronology rather than time of writing. Each story is written o stand alone -- this is not a WIP serial -- but they are connected so I thought I'd make the link explicit.

    Summary

    Everyone in the Resistance makes a big deal of what the First Order takes from stormtroopers: family, home, agency, identity. Things no one's supposed to be able to take away, but it turns out to be easy, if cost-intensive: Finn's seen their accounts. In the places of these missing things, the Order set unity, belonging, order, victory: he's seen that, too, he's felt it, the throat raw with cheering, the advance in perfect formation, the pride in gleaming armor.

    When Finn thinks about what he's fighting for, what he's trying to get to, he can imagine things about it. Going about his day, making and eating food, meditating, sucking Poe's dick at some point, reading, sleeping—all in the knowledge that if anyone, anywhere, wanted to use someone else, treat them like a thing and not a person, they'd have to work hard and they wouldn't have help. He knows they theoretically need to do that in some particular place. But he doesn't know what the light is like there, what the air smells like, how the gravity feels.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This story is so rich and full and verisimilitudinous; it turns the universe and the war of Star Wars into something real and lived. I almost don't know how to praise it, but if something made of words can be too good for words, this is.

    Summary

    There is just enough space for pleasure, because it's possible to be in a room filled with other people and silently ignore the fact that some of them are making love, if none of you ever talk about it. Everyone needs to feel alive if they can.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The best way I can compliment this story is that I would love it, and find them all pitch-perfect (especially Poe but truly all of them) if it had been written by someone I didn't know. But because I am luckier than I deserve, it was written for me by a dear friend, and it's wonderful.

    Summary

    Finn overhears things. Not everyone who fights for the Resistance is happy to have an ex-stormtrooper on their side.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Thistlerose has masterfully described so many aspects of the liminal position Finn is in -- integrating into the Resistance, building a relationship of as yet indeterminate shape with Poe, learning who he himself is now that he's away from an organization which constantly told him who they had decided he was -- that I cried in delight over both the technical excellence and the human warmth of this story.

    Summary

    Maybe Ren's telepathic romp left him marked, an easy target for anyone who'd like to help themselves to whatever it is they might want from him. Like a beacon, a scar that throbs and calls out, lets every sleaze and psycho know: for a good time, probe Dameron.

    Still, he'd do anything for the Resistance.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Sometimes one finds a story which is so many amazing things at once all woven together into something even better than the astronomical sum of its parts. A story full of the aftereffects of trauma, and really alien aliens, and self-sacrifice, and beautiful characterization, and awesomely timed reveals, and heart wrenching emotions, and competence and awesomeness and also so much glorious porn the reader will melt into a puddle?

    Yeah, all that and so much more is in this magnificent story.

    This story is a richly textured happy place for some people who really deserved happiness, and for all of us who get to read it.
