    Summary

    [...] “About that,” Ava said, walking to her desk to grab the other letter. “If he makes it past the New Year, it won't matter if a Major or a Colonel older than me runs. I'll be appointed General, soon.”
    Nate gasped at that and his eyes lit up. “You cannot possibly lose. The only other candidate that might get in your way-” his shoulders slumped a little. “Colonel Diggle. He does have one advantage that might allure to people more than your rank. He's married, on the family way.”
    Both Rip and Lance sighed, shaking their heads. Ava frowned.
    “That is easily fixed,” Nate amended.

    OR, a past!AU where Ava is a Colonel who wants to be elected Governor, but to do so she has to marry quickly, and who better suited than the daughter of her Captain, Quentin Lance? Except, things get a lot more complicated than that.

    Summary

    The year is 2020 and only two Astronauts of Ares 22 and 23 volunteered to remain on Mars for the mission of a lifetime: Janitor duty. One hundred and eighty days of isolation with only each other for company… along with thousands of fans, over-protective Mission Control, and a “Roomba” with a hat.

    Too bad they can’t stop driving each other insane.

    Summary

    Whitney Earp is getting married, which in a small town like Purgatory, is big news already, but Whitney has a secret. While sorting through some boxes in the attic, preparing for her move off the homestead, she stumbles across a familiar white stetson, and her mother’s old journal. She learns that her mother Waverly has been keeping something important from her her entire life -- Waverly Earp is not her biological mother. Through lies and the perfect scheme, and a wedding that is one disaster after another, Whitney is determined to get to the bottom of the family secret, even if it means getting both of her mothers in the same room after 20 years of estrangement.
