    Summary

    Polaroid photos, bad prose, love-letters-that-aren't-love-letters. Keith registers himself for the pen-pal program at the local military garrison and is paired up with First Lieutenant Takashi "Shiro" Shirogane. He doesn't really expect much from it - a new friend is the most he envisioned he could get. Falling in love with the attractive soldier was not one of them.

    (Luckily, or unluckily, for him - Shiro's having the same problem.)

    Summary

    A soft, insistent tap against the glass draws Shiro’s eye up and dead-center. For the first time, he sees the strange creature in full.

    It is human— from the waist up, at least. From the waist down, though, he’s… something else. His translucent lower body reminds Shiro of a mermaid’s, but its long, elegant taper ends in no fins. It’s all sleek, all sheer golden gleam, soft where its coils press against the reinforced glass, translucent enough to see the stars through. His dark hair moves with a life of its own, floating sinuously in the cold vacuum of space, billowing with every movement.

    -     -  -    - ----  - ---  ------- -    --- - -         - -        -

    Alone in the depths of space, Lieutenant Takashi Shirogane crosses paths with a creature that shouldn't exist— strange and beautiful and keenly interested in the lone human hiding behind the safety of his ship's steel walls and triple-paned glass.
