    Summary

    Steve gets out of the hospital in two days, but just barely. “I’m fine,” he tells Sam, Nurse Eunjung and the phalanx of doctors assigned to make sure Captain America didn’t bleed out and die and get bad PR all over their nice clean hospital. “I have an advanced healing factor. It’s fine. See? I’m standing.”

    “That is not standing,” Sam tells him.

    “You’re bending the IV stand,” Nurse Eunjung adds pointedly. “Let go and sit down, they don’t grow on trees.”

    Summary

    The Enterprise's first mission is a boring one. Luckily, the ship more or less makes its own trouble, including: stills, toilet paper, lighting issues, awkward crewmembers, lunchroom seating politics, and, of course, the Admiralty.

    Or: How Jim Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Chain Of Command.

    Summary

    Miss Gibson said, “In the spirit of truthful admission, Miss Bennet, I intend to spend some time devising the right question for you. If I may see you again?”

    Why did that sound strange? But she always sounded strange to people herself. And it was a familiar kind of strangeness, as if it were something she had heard before, only not like this.

    Mary, constrained by the principles of truth, could only admit that she would enjoy that very much.

    Summary

    When Lardo tells Shitty what she wants for her birthday, she prefaces it with, “Okay, before you say anything, I’ve already thought about the implications of this in the context of my identity as a queer Asian woman living in a white heterosexist patriarchy, and I want to do it anyway.”

    “Bro,” Shitty says, looking almost tearful. “That is the most beautiful fucking thing I’ve ever heard.”

    (Or: Lardo has a bucket list, and Ransom and Holster have her back.)

    Summary

    “Listen to me going on and on about pie. You tell me more about yourself, Just Jack,” Eric prompts, smiling encouragingly.

    “Uhh,” Jack begins, forcing himself to put down his fork and actually make conversation. “I play hockey.”

    “You don’t say?” Eric says, smile widening.

    “Chirp, chirp, chirp.”

    Jack meets the love of his life while serving Thanksgiving dinner at a homeless shelter and struggling to learn the difference between sexuality and dysfunction. Along the way, he repairs some broken relationships and figures out how to let himself have nice things, one of which is a small southern baker with a habit of concealing the truth.
