    Summary

    Who-a, who-a, who-a, welcome to Halycon!

    Neena has survived being de-frosted by none other than the known fugitive scientist Phineas Welles. They have also survived numerous fights and done countless odd jobs, all to make good on a life that was supposed to be waiting for the ill-reputed drifter turned Captain of a now-deceased bounty hunter's ship. And as time goes on, the once legendary chemically abusing, freakoid Casanova goes further away from their last sexual encounter, decades in their past and well out of their usual element.

    If they think for a moment that things'll ever get any easier, Neena gets a wake up call when their ship's once bad joke of a spiritual adviser completely upturns not just what Neena believed about their libido but also their aromantic tendencies when an attempt at helping a newfound and unlikely friend backfires.

    For once Neena has nowhere to run. And what's worse; they're not sure if getting away from the pesky man who leaves them all twisted and confused is what they really want any more.

    Summary

    "Lenora. You— you can call me Lenora," she stammered. His eyebrows raised again and, as they always did, settled, this time into a satisfied smile.

    "If you're certain."

    "Yes. Good night, Max."

    "A good night to you as well, Lenora."

    She walked to her quarters feeling lighter than she had in days— weeks, years— maybe before she even left Earth. That Vicar sure is something, she thought, falling into a dreamless sleep, her name on his lips swimming through her mind.

    Summary

    Everyone on this ship is dumb, thirsty, and masochistic with overlapping skill sets in between. 'Cept Parv, who is just straight-up competent, and who we love and cherish.

    We're doing all the classic fic tropes in here, lads: pining, longing, sex pollen; why love triangle when you could polyship?

    Fem!cap is Alex Hawthorne in this one—ADA asked her to say she was, and she doesn't really recall what it was before.
    Eventual Max/Felix/Alex because I said so.

    Summary

    She tells him he has to be the captain now, that he has to take the name of the squished guy. Outside, the soldiers waylay him, threatening a steep fine for illegally parking his ship.

    He panics.

    "I'm a ship safety inspector."

    Summary

    An overenthusiastic (and slightly crazy) lab assistant finds the future to be Not As Advertised™.

    On the bright side, May's student loan is gone.
    On the dark side (of the moon), she's an addict with no sense of self-preservation and an impossible mission. If her life was bad before, then it was only getting worse from here.

    Featuring the power of pure weirdness (now with 20% more random!), SPESS CRACK both literal and metaphorical (or was it SPESS LSD?), gratuitous flashbacks that dear reader can probably skip (but which serve a very dark and nefarious purpose not immediately apparent), Captain "I swear my intelligence is average!" of the Unreliable, and lots and lots of unpleasantness that arises naturally from expecting a kinda-but-not-really janitor and kinda-but-not-really lab assistant to tear down the system and solve a food crisis.

    But like how even in the largest void of the universe there are stars and galaxies, so in every adventure there is a chance of happiness, fulfillment and friendship.

    However, if you're expecting a happy ending . . . well, let's not get ahead of ourselves. There are still too many ways to be tortured to think of death.

    Summary

    Max would play their game, would let them re-educate him, but he’d carry the truth within him like a bitter ember. He knew to be more careful now, not to trust those whose minds were too small to comprehend his ideas. And when his chance appeared, he would seize it. Understanding, enlightenment, his name underlined in the Plan. Peace.

    Pride in a job well done was axiomatic; it was the reward from the Architect for fulfilling your purpose. So if Pearl had fulfilled her purpose, then how come it felt so fucking awful.

    Summary

    Cpt. Media Goodfellow finds themself at a loss, mentally and emotionally adrift, and completely and utterly fucked. What they’re saying is, they’d take crash landing on an alien planet and subsequently becoming an outlaw and a murderer-by-proxy at the same time over what they’re facing down right now a thousand to one.

    Parvati and the Captain have an emotional heart-to-heart, and Max is (reluctantly) there to support them and to (enthusiastically) drink.

    Summary

    Edgewater was difficult, and that wasn’t even considering the fact that Vivian Reynolds, (no, it was Vivian A. Hawthorne now) had just woken up from an unexpected 70 year cryo nap and had been unceremoniously dumped upon an unfamiliar planet with an unfamiliar culture. And that wasn’t even considering that Vivian A. Hawthorne, as a middle-aged research biologist, was in no way equipped to deal with, what could you even call it? A spat between mistreated employees and their shit company? A life or death peacekeeping mission with no perfect solution? Deciding between two societies which should succeed and fail? She still didn’t quite know what to call it, but her first twelve hours awake were less than ideal.

    Summary

    Summary

    “Why are you apologizing?” Felix demands. His brows are furrowed, and he looks confused, not mad. Not furious, like he should be. “Fucker deserved it.”

    “But he was your father,” you insist, and Felix just rolls his eyes.

    “‘s fine,” the kid says, almost slurring now, but not quite. “You’re a better daddy anyway, boss.”


    Drunken confessions, sober sex, and a little bit of kink.
