    Summary

    No one approaches them, though. Because, although they don’t really wear a Badlands uniform, most aliens are smart enough to notice that, one, their spaceship isn’t chartered by any of the big spatial powers and two, their crew is far too diverse to be normal. And they’re all smart enough to know that this is not good news. So they don’t bother them.
    Except for Ponk.
    Because Ponk – whoever that guy is – just slips next to them at the small booth, sitting right next to Bad on the bench.
    “Hey!” he greets in some heavily accented Common. “Do you guys have some credits I could borrow?”
    Sam blinks in surprise. “Pardon?”
    “Some credits,” Ponk repeats. “My buddy left me with practically nothing and I was just vibing, waiting for him, but I’m bored now.”

    OR: The Badlands picks up a random alien from an ill-famed space station. He is also definitely an alien. No one doubts it.
    OR (2): Five examples of the Badlands being oblivious, and the one time they had to realize something about their crewmate.

    Summary

    I have three rules:
    1) Always happy ending
    2) Punz must die
    3) No permanent death except for Punz (see #2) and Dream, if necessary to fulfill #1

    Sometimes I break them, (more bend really) and this is where they go

    Summary

    Tommy was pretty sure he was seventeen at this point, not that there was anyone to remind him of his birthday. (Not that his birthday mattered when there was no Earth spinning around the Sun to mark a year. An Earth year meant approximately nothing in the void of space.)

    One minute, he was at an orphanage on Earth, fresh from running away from a shitty foster home, the next he was in a tiny cell on a ship blasting away from Earth, on a spaceship full of aliens that had kidnapped him and brought him far from his home, then suddenly those shitty aliens were attacked by nice aliens, and he lived among them for a couple years after learning that they were actually pretty cool, and couldn’t take him home due to intergalactic law about contacting Terrans, and then just as suddenly as they appeared, they were gone. And he was alone on a spaceship meant to carry more people than were in the tiny English town he grew up in. So he was alone.

    And he had been for four years.

    Or, Tommy was kidnapped from Earth, and now captains a ghost ship, of which he is the only occupant. Captain Philza Watson and the crew of the CS Daedalus may be his escape, and his one chance at finding a home away from Earth.

    Summary

    I'm cleaning up my WIP list and I've got a lot of stuff that I have no idea if/when I'm going to finish it and a lot of Deleted Scenes that I kept so now I'm letting all of you guys see it.

    As far as the AUs go I may or may not one day get back around to them, we'll see. If you're inspired by anything feel free to run with it.

    Summary

    Wilbur likes the place he's chosen to Turn his baby Changeling in. It's a shame that the rest of his coven had to find out about it before he could get in his Tommy Cuddle Quota, but the bed is big enough for four.

    ---

    TLDR: it's just very soft.
