Spock relieved Ensign Garcia at the science console without so much as a word. The junior science officer slipped over to the auxiliary station with all due relief, happy to no longer have the responsibility of being the ship's eyes and ears in the face of potential combat.
Kirk, likewise, took the Captain's chair as the bridge hummed with activity for the second time in as many days, and waited for Lieutenant Rand to find her way to the standing security console next to the communications station before asking, "Readiness status."
"All sections report condition yellow," Rand said.
Sulu reported immediately, "Forcefields energized, main deflectors on standby. Number two shield is a bit twitchy, but all systems show ready. Should I arm phasers banks?"
"Not yet..." He had a million more questions to ask of the situation, b

The Detapa Republic Space Vessel Grazine eased into a slot position off the Enterprise's starboard bow, its fusion drives firing at almost right angles to the ship's present orbit. For some reason the Cardassians had decided to make the final rendezvous with a complicated plane-change maneuver instead of simply aligning their entry point to bring them right to interception point with Enterprise. Kirk suspected it was a way to look over their potential ally from a distance before making the actual rendezvous.
Grazine was larger than Kirk expected it to be, in fact it was slightly larger than some Starfleet vessels, just over four hundred meters long and massing a little over one hundred thousand tons. It was a long, slender craft with a blunt nose that was packed with sensors, antenna farms and ports for weapons Kirk could not immediately identify

The turbolift opened to Deck Three at the semi-circular corridor just aft of the bridge. Captain Kirk and Lieutenant Rand followed the curving passageway around to the command briefing room where Doctor Marcus, Spock and Doctor McCoy were already gathered at the conference table, along with a newly-arrived pair of Cardassian officers just now entering through the opposite hatch with Lieutenant Bailey bringing up the rear.
Kirk stopped and took them in for a moment, giving his newly anointed Security Chief some time to get comfortable with her sudden authority. Gradually the entire group took their seats around the long table; Spock took his customary station at the library computer terminal, and all seats around the table were arranged facing a circular bank of HUD windows, designed to display information without compromising the line of sigh

"Bridge to all decks, red alert. Weapons bay, stand by for immediate weapons release." The rising tone of the red alert claxon sounded next, joined by flashing lights and the sounds of pressure doors dropping to isolate independent sections of the ship. Back on a combat footing for the fifth time in two days, and judging by the sound of his voice, Lieutenant Sulu found it a lot less exciting than he had the first two times.
Kirk pushed his chair back from his desk terminal and snapped his communicator open. It found the bridge intercom immediately and he demanded, "Talk to me, Sulu."
"Same as before, Captain. Inbound torpedoes, bearing two eleven mark six. Impact trajectory in forty two minutes..." a long pause on the intercom circuit, and then Kirk heard the whistle of a power transfer and the distant reverberation of a torpedo launch, lik

"Wait, that's Miri?" Kirk asked of the withered figure under the hospital blanket on the biobed. He'd been merely curious when he walked into sickbay and saw a mysterious woman in her mid seventies lying there in the infirmary section, but that curiosity had grown into near panic when McCoy told him the woman's name. "You can't be serious!"
"Serious as a heart attack," McCoy said, "We did another genetic screening a minute ago. The DNA is a perfect match to Miri's pattern. Besides, she looks exactly like Miranda Anderson in her interviews in the 2070s"
"But the thing that materialized on the transporter..."
"She didn't stay that way for long. When we tried to take her to sickbay she..." McCoy shook his head in disbelief, "I don't know how to explain this, but we were carrying her - what she'd become - on a st

The ship was already on Red Alert when the away team materialized in the transporter room. That was to be expected, considering the circumstances. What Kirk did not expect was the sudden lurch against the hull and the sound of power generators straining somewhere as the deflector screens struggled to repel some kind of attacking energy. The inertial dampeners quickly cancelled out the vibration, and the Captain leapt from the transport pad to the hatch, already sprinting on his way to the nearest turbolift.
He got as far as the transporter room door when the room suddenly filled with screams. He made out the voices of Rand and Dallas, plus the transporter chief whose name he could never remember. But there was a third scream in the room, an almost animal-like howl of greater power and intensity than any human could aspire to, and it was comi
Eyebrows(The Doctor is embarassed by his lack of eyebrows. River reassures him.)
"Why don't you have any eyebrows?"
River loved his eyes, so deepset and dark and gentle. Piney green and clear, full of tenderness and hope. And she loved the way he looked at her. As if she was the wringing beat of each of his hearts.
She drew her finger down his long, strong nose and watched him watch her. She was propped against his chest, the shush and sway of meadow grasses sounding like surf around them. Tiny white and yellow flowers floating like flotsam on the green.
They had been cloud gazing, but she preferred gazing at him.
He inhaled and exhaled under her, lifting her gently up and down with each breath.
She smiled and traced one finger over his eyebrow.
“I suppose now you’re going to make fun of my eyebrows,” he said underneath her, with a bit of a defensive rumble.
“What?” she said, startled. “No!” She scowled. “Has someone been making fun
We've Got Mail!Amy and Rory are gone, but Time Lords are clever, and there's always a way to keep in touch...
“We’ve got mail!” River caroled as she bounced into the Tardis, waving a handful of heavy vellum envelopes.
“Give me!” the Doctor ran down the Tardis stairs and snatched half the envelopes from River’s grasp, scattering others across the entryway floor.
River didn’t protest, she was as eager as he was to discover the contents.
They both sat down right there on the entryway floor and started opening envelopes.
The Doctor slit open a thick square envelope with his pinkie and pulled out the sheaf of papers inside. He quickly unfolded them.
“Hello, Raggedy Man, What’s up?”
Tears started in his eyes at that irreverent greeting, he grinned fit to bust and blinked his eyes clear.
“We got your last letter,” Amy continued. “Sounds like you put my daughter through the ringer. Really, you should know better than to take

"What if you become handsome, taller and stronger?"
"What if you can teach those bullies a lesson?"
"What if you become popular?"
"It'd feel like you've been reborn."
"What would you say if i told you that all of those are as easy as a game?"
Those were his words when the last time Eren saw him. What did he meant by 'a game'? Why did he say it like life is just a simple game?
It was confusing.
Yet tempting. He was tempted to say yes, he was tempted to say of course he wanted that life. A life where he's stronger. A life where he can actually be a somebody. A life where he can actually had the chance to make her his.
Everyday, he would witness their affection towards each other. How she laughed at his lame jokes, how he insults her and she insults him back, how they let their fingers intertwined with each other's as t

You felt as if you were standing underwater, hearing voices from above but not being able to make them out.
Slowly, you floated to the surface…
Two brown curls bobbed in the wind.
“I stole his glasses~!”
“What use will they be, dammit?”
“He was being mean to the pretty girl! I did kinda inject her with some serum though...Just to make sure she didn’t remember.”
“You shouldn't have interfered. Now we’re going to have to lay low for a while.”
“Aw! But we haven’t seen each other for so long-!”
“-And now because you fucked up we have to be separated even longer. Good job.”

Virtual ConflictThe blue hedgehog headed across the beach for his best friend’s workshop. He had just returned from once again another battle from his arch enemy Dr. Eggman. It was just another cliche, run of the mill battle. It was seven in the morning, and the hedgehog hadn’t slept in three days by this time. He walked across the coarse sand of the shore in a slight limp. However, he stopped when he heard laughing from nearby. He glanced curiously at the direction of the noise, and spotted a lilac princess sitting on a rocky ledge with a white hedgehog. The blue hedgehog’s heart sank a mile at the sight, but he wasn’t sure why. The princess and the white hedgehog were laughing and teasingly throwing sand at each other. The blue hedgehog, whose name was Sonic, was gawking at the lilac princess. She wasn’t even looking his way, and neither was the white hedgehog. They were too engrossed with each other. Suddenly the white hedgehog kissed the princess on the cheek, and an

"What do you mean Star is suspended?!"
Star and her mother were in the principal's office. Star was looking down at the ground holding back tears. Her mother was furious!
"Mrs. Jones, we have told Star time and time again that her hair color is a distraction to the other students."
"It's her natural hair color! She can't help that!"
"Then she should dye it." The principal replied, making Star's mother even angrier than before.
"How dare you! I told you before that she is severely allergic to hair dye!"
In reality, Star was not allergic to hair dye. Her and her parents have tried countless times to dye her hair, but the dye would always dissolve, leaving her hair still dark purple.
"I cannot believe that the public school system is filled with so many ignorant people now!"
"Shut up! I'm taking Star out of this God forsaken school! I've had it with you! From now on my husband and I are going to home sch
