    Mantid aliens with limited neuroplasticity and how they relate to death.

    An original sci-fi work posted on tumblr in January of 2016. Posted to Ao3 to centralize things, and to celebrate (nearly) 100,000 notes on the post!

    Later I'll add the rest of the stories I've written with these aliens as well.

    Summary

    Sophos makes a fatal mistake and his alliance with Gen lies in ruins. He is determined to repair it at whatever cost, though reparations may mean his title, his freedom or his life.

    ***
    Before, Sophos’ face would have flooded with mortification at being so slow of thought. Now, though, it was all he could do to keep his breathing under control and not let the pain overwhelm him. “Even if you sent him,” he said, “I still didn’t deserve healing.”

    “And if I ordered you?” Eugenides said mildly. “I was under the impression I was your King. Correct me if I have this wrong.”

    This is tagged as both gen and m/m, which is exactly how I would have tagged it; the vid has that ambiguity, which I like. What I said to the creator:

    This is very nicely done. I like how you went beyond the obvious clips and melded the images so well with the lyrics.

    What I wrote to the vid creator:

    I'm so glad I found your AO3 account, because I've been watching this vid over and over and over since I first stumbled across it. I love everything about it: the mix of old and new, the way you used the "light" concept, the excellent melding of music and images, and the selection of clips. (I didn't realize till I saw your vid how many times Kirk and Spock got into each other's space.) The final part of the vid is simply awesome editing.

    If you haven't read Patricia A. McKillip's Riddle-master trilogy yet, go read it. The read this beautiful (though spoilerish) postlude.

    What I wrote to the author:

    "I often feel hesitant to read fanfic about novels I like, and this has been my favorite fantasy novel for 37 years. I worry that the fic won't do justice to the canon.

    "I needn't have worried in this case. You've captured McKillip's voice so beautifully that your story actually made clear to me for the first time some of the lyrical elements she used to enchant her readers. Thank you. And thank you for giving me the opportunity to spend a little more time with two of my favorite characters."

    Summary

    “Um,” Alex tried to regain his power of speech. “Are you Hilary?”

     

    “Dr Aquila, I presume,” the young man answered, and leant back against the doorframe, arms folded, regarding Alex appraisingly. “So you do exist after all. I was starting to fear the personnel department was in the grip of a delusion and our rota a tissue of deceit.”

     

     

    After an incident, Dr Alex Aquila is relocated to an obscure ward in a tiny hospital in the north of England. There are too many patients, too much paperwork and his SHO Hilary is impossible to work with. But at least surgical trainee Connor has shown him some friendliness. With a life to rebuild, and many challenges ahead, can Alex figure out who he is and what he really needs?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "Fluff and angst" this is correctly tagged. No knowledge of the canon is needed, but the story makes a successful AU transfer from "frontier Roman soldiers" to "frontier British doctors." I'm recommending this story for the medical details and for Hilary's dialogue, which is memorable.
