    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.

  3. 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

    English is no pure language. It likes to shake down other languages for spare verbs and nouns.

    All languages borrow. Steal. Blend. Overwrite where they can. Struggle to sing against the silence.

    But hear now the tale of a family. A member of a vast tribe. Now is the time to gather the singers of tales. Go to the beginning. As far back as we can go. See the how each ancestor leaves a note in the song.

    Summary

    Sure, Bucky and the Howlers brought down Red Skull and the plane months ago, but demobilization of an entire army takes time, so it’s only now that he got to turn in his papers and step back onto good old American soil. Steve (he can call him Steve now, not Rogers, and not "pro-boy", which Steve had always worn with pride though it left a bitter taste on Bucky's tongue) came out of his final pro-boy checkup with face flushed, and looked around the Brooklyn streets. "Oh hey, my place is not far from here. Wanna go?“

    Bucky nodded, and hurried to follow Steve as those skinny legs sauntered down the street with easy confidence. He liked it when Steve lead.

    Summary

    She could have anyone, she could, but she’s set her sights on him. And why shouldn’t she? She ain’t stealin’, ain’t poaching from her friends - or enemies - ain’t trying to break up a courtship or happy home. Why shouldn’t she set her cap at the fine, friendly bachelor livin’ with that ornery friend of his at the edge of the woods? At him who always looks, but never tries to touch? At him who don’t try to take her down a peg or two every time her finishin’ school voice slips out? Why shouldn’t she? She don’t know he’s mine.

    Summary

    "James T," she says, hands on her hips and head cocked to the side. "You want sex?"

    Jim blinks, blinks again, tries to differentiate between intent and the language barrier, and finally stammers out, "Uh, in general, or with you?"
