“What’s Up, Doc?”: #JusJoJan Day Fifteen

Welcome to Day Fifteen of Just Jot It January, where the prompt is: “mercy,” used any way we wish. Today, I offer you yet another peek into my fan fiction playground, with the first installment to my A Beagle’s Bedside Manner sequel story.

And, as always, standard disclaimer applies. I write these stories for love, not profit. I don’t own the characters or their world. It’s not my fault that they keep whispering stories in my head, and that they demand I write them, is it?

“What’s Up, Doc?”

Trip waited as long as he was able, but when his pacing damned near ran him into T’Pol’s window for the third time, he realized he needed to go check on her.

He hadn’t wanted her to go alone in the first place, but she out-logicked him, arguing that if the Acting Captain couldn’t manage to walk to Sickbay independently, it was conclusive proof that she needed to relinquish command. There was an undercurrent that said that, if she had to, she would order him to wait for her return. Trip didn’t press his luck; he wanted to be able to do just what he was doing now – going after her, because she’d been gone too long with no word, so that had to mean that something was up.

He was rounding the last bend to Sickbay when Phlox’s voice sounded from all the comm panels. He broke into a run, his stomach lurching first into his throat, and then down to his feet, as he heard, “Commander Tucker, please report to Sickbay at once.”

Oh, damn. Was there no mercy? Jon was dead, and T’Pol was in deep trouble –

He slammed his hand on the door release, and didn’t stop moving until he was inside. Phlox was still at the panel, staring at him. He didn’t see T’Pol anywhere –

“T’hy’la!” The half-yell was followed by thumping and the distinctive echoing bay of a beagle. “T’hy’la!” It sounded like she and Porthos were competing to make the biggest racket.

Trip didn’t wait for Phlox to tell him what the hell was going on here. He went to the imaging chamber, and pressed the button that would slide the biobed, and his frantic Vulcan lover, out of the tube.

She was wriggling down the bed almost before the toes of her boots emerged, and Trip braced himself. He’d had more than a few examples of how relentless she could be; he knew the signs.

Sure enough, by the time Porthos hopped off the bed, she was coming for him, and the impact was almost enough to bowl him over, even though he’d prepared. “T’hyla!” she whispered, and latched herself to his lips, smothering her repeated little cries. Trip gave himself to her, gathering her in close and maneuvering them onto the biobed with her straddling him. If Phlox had still had any doubts about what they’d been up to in her quarters during the last few hours, this was probably going to put an end to them.

She finally let him up for air, and Trip opened his eyes to see that Phlox was a few steps away, watching them. T’Pol didn’t seem to care; her body was hot and making demands he didn’t think she had any control over. He looked at the doctor over her head, and said, a little breathlessly, “Commander Tucker, reporting to Sickbay as ordered. What’s up, Doc?”

What is up?

Is Trip prepared for this?

Is T’Pol?

What’s next?

There will be at least one more installment for this story; maybe more. So, if you like what you read – c’mon back!

Welcome to Day Fourteen of Just Jot It January, where the prompt is: the letter p,” used any way we wish, with extra points for beginning and ending with “p” words. Today, I offer you another peek into my fan fiction playground, because the prompt was perfect, with a third and final installment to my Arachnid Nebula sequel story, still unnamed.

And, as always, standard disclaimer applies. I write these stories for love, not profit. I don’t own the characters or their world. It’s not my fault that they keep whispering stories in my head, and that they demand I write them, is it?

“There is No Cure”

Perhaps Kov should feel discomfort at the open intimacy between T’Pol and Trip. Were he living a more typically Vulcan life, he certainly should have, but the course of his investigations into himself and the true nature of his people had led to a greater understanding of the deeper needs that drove them, and the forms they might take. This physical expression was perhaps as near as T’Pol could come to revealing the esteem in which s he held her human Intended. His willingness to share in it was an expression of the deepening emotion he felt for this woman.

It was also an exceptionally efficient and apparently instinctive panacea against the neural devastation the onset of Pa’Naar Syndrome could cause in those afflicted.

Perhaps that explained the calming of his own agitation, as well.

“Please elucidate upon Pa’Naar Syndrome.” Had she adopted a more human manner of speech with intent, or were they already so closely connected that she would be influenced by the physical contact? Fascinating.

“The specific causes are uncertain, although it always involves a melding, and generally one that is in some way not wholly wanted by both participants. The resistance to the sharing causes a disruption of the neural net that is exacerbated if the limbic system is engaged. Untreated, it’s immediately terminal.”

Terminal!” Trip increased the pressure of his embrace; T’Pol seemed to welcome it, and to be untroubled by the significant volume of the human’s exclamation. “If that’s true, why the hell aren’t we treating her now?”

“We are treating her now, Trip. “Kov smiled. A most passionate man, and protective of those he cared for. “The emergency support provided in T’Pol’s quarters, and the contact you are currently providing, are precisely the type of treatment she needs at this stage, whether or not she develops Pa’Naar.”
“When will we know, and what is the prognosis?” She was a noted scientist, and a woman being supported by her Intended. T’Pol accepted the treatment without question, and set her attention to the next issue. A most remarkable woman, in the mate she had chosen, but she was still Vulcan.

“The next six hours will ascertain whether the damage will result in Pa’Naar Syndrome. If you have contracted the disorder, treatment will mitigate the progression for a time.” Kov paused to draw a centering breath; he didn’t wish to deliver the eventual result of the assault, but the responsibility had fallen upon him. “There is no known cure. Those afflicted eventually and invariably perish.”

How will T’Pol react?

What about Trip?

Does she have Pa’Naar Syndrome?

Well, that will have to wait a little while, but I may begin another story in a day or two, so don’t forget to come back!

During the transition from this WordPress blog (which will soon be undergoing some changes) to my website as my primary online presence, I’ve neglected something I’ve wanted to do all along…make duplicate posts.

Today, I’m correcting that. This is experimental; it may shift as I get the hang of it.

At any rate, here’s my Day 10 Just Jot It January post, “There Are Other Dangers.” Click on the post title, or the image below:

The Prosperity of Presence (or is that Presents?): December 25, 2016

Hey there!

If you’re observing a holiday this week, may it dawn brightly, pass in delight, and end in soft wonder. If you’re not celebrating – well, may your day to day life bring you joy and wonder, too!

Yes, I do know that the round is officially over – but I work best with monthly goals, and a steady rhythm for accountability. Don’t worry; I am moving forward at a more relaxed pace – but I love the moving forward, and a week and a half of down time would be more like torment than rest, when I have ideas churning away in my head, so….here I am!

Most of my focus has been on planning for next year’s writing, revising, and administrative details – file sorting, holiday provisioning, hometending…and family time. I’ve also been rereading some of my existing fan fiction as I sorted and filed.

In the midst of the uncertainty in our finances…a windfall of sorts. My Accomplice realized that we were paying about twice as much for our life insurance policies as we needed to, particularly now that the children are no longer so young that they’ll be dependent upon us for many more years. So he shopped around, and found a much more affordable plan with adequate coverage, and we cashed in the existing policy’s value.

Most of the money is already earmarked, but we’ve budgeted in a few treats for everyone along the way. It will be a simple holiday, but there will also be some magic.

What does holiday magic mean to you?

Whatever it is, may you have and share it in abundance!

Plotting:

  • Draft my basic 2017 goals/schedule. Primary goal.  Aeon Timeline;Expanding February projects into one-sentence goal statements; 2/12 in progress. New timeline created; February goals in process; 2/12 months.

Revision:

  • Philodosia”(Hamiltoninspired alternate history): Revise and print a nice copy of Scene One, “A Matter of Honor” for my daughter’s Christmas gift. Side goal. Simmering was a good idea, as this is a much improved version. I even made it a cover and a dedication, and autographed it for her. ❤

Social Media:

  • Interaction: Visit website, blog, ROW80, Albany NNWM and Yakon Village FB pages; ff.net; Twitter; Instagram; and Pinterest weekly, each site. Secondary goal. Thursday/Monday focus. Holiday and family stuff took precedence.
  • Continue in situ website design, with a focus on transitioning to it as my prime online home in 2017. Prepare countdown posts for this blog, and post with link. Post one reblog and two snippets each week. This is a Sunday/Wednesday focus. Tertiary goal. Simmering. WIPpet posted: To Sleep for Real. And second reblog in progress; and that’s as far as I got this week.

Hometending:

  • Complete resets/reorganizations: study, family room, and kitchen. Use the 27 Thing Fling for structure/5 each per week. Add in 25 cycles a week for random indoor/outdoor tidying/hometending. Secondary goal. Study: 3/5; Family: 1/5. Kitchen: 0/5. Indoor random; 33ish/25. More focus given to those things that would nurture the holiday spirit; I’ll get back to a more typical routine this week.

  • Personal Administration: Clean, organize, and back up all OneDrive Move to Yogical, Stuff to Look At, and The IDIC Romance files. Maintain email below 99 messages. Cull/organize Writing Stuff email folder. Tertiary goal. Stuff to Look At folder emptied and deleted. Fourth and final sort of IDIC folders complete; moved to Fiction directory. Began with 1,724 Writing Stuff messages; down to 1,350. Now that the rest of this goal is complete, I can focus on this portion.

Lifetending:

  • My beloveds: One on one time with each, doing something of value to us both, each week. Continue planning/ attending outings and at-home activities (personal and family) as desired. Primary goal. Conversation; canoodling; cuddling; nail painting; workout; dinner; music.

  • NNWM local group: Interact regularly online and in person. Secondary goal. Visited page; write-in goodness.

  • Paying it Forward: Offer promotional posts, reviews, and beta-reading for other writers. Tertiary goal. One offer of promotion on the table.

 

 Selftending:

  • Journal six times each week. Meditation six mornings, and three evenings. Primary goal. 4/6 morning; 0/3 evening. Fairly well in the mornings, considering the holiday.

  • Fitness: Get a cumulative total of at least 80 minutes moderate physical activity 5 days weekly, 90 minutes 4 days weekly. Secondary goal. 80 min: 6/5; 90 min: 5/4. With the preparations, this was a simple matter.

  • Tai chi class, swimming, strength, and/or cardio training for a cumulative total of eight hours. Tertiary goal. Cardio/strength workout at Y: 3/8 hours. Got another hour here; workout with my Accomplice.

Leaps of Faith:

A Prosperous Ending: November 30, 2016

Hey there!

This is the last day of the month. Tomorrow, I start on my December goals list, looking to both wrap things up and look forward to a new year of writing challenges.

My daughter isn’t home – she’s sleeping over with her best friend until Friday – and the house is quiet with just my son and I home. A little later, we’ll be watching Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog (his choice), and Dead Poets’ Society (mine – he hasn’t yet seen Robin Williams in a dramatic role, and, at 15, he’s a very good age for this favorite of mine). Tomorrow, we’re most likely going to the Y for a workout, and to the Victorian Street Walk in Saratoga Springs, a local tradition we try to make when the weather is decent.

Friday evening, he and I will hopefully be attending Hamilton’s Albany, a documentary preview from our local PBS station, at the Albany Institute of History and Art, which also currently has a Hamilton exhibit.

Saturday is our homeschool community center holiday party….so it’s a busy spell, for us. ‘Tis the season!

It’s been a bit since I shared excerpts as part of the intro. Since I’ve been revising my fan fiction story, “First Contact, With Jazz,” I thought I would share a bit from both of my POV characters today. By the way, standard disclaimers apply: I don’t own them, and I don’t profit from them; I just love them!

T’Pol:

Once, as an infant, T’Pol had thrust her fingers into her mother’s meditation flame, despite the warning that it would bring injury. Her second foremother, T’Mir, reported that she had screamed and struggled when the physicians attempted to treat her. They had been concerned for her overall well-being, and ceased the efforts to wholly heal the wounds. She still bore faint burn scars on two of her fingertips.

She retained no memory of the pain, but she remembered the beauty and power of the flames with great clarity. The learning gained through that experience couldn’t be defined by logic. It had changed her, as she had later been changed when she ingested the metamorphic nectars of her world’s rarest fruit.

Trip:

Trip Tucker’s mama had raised him to be a gentleman. He tried not to judge the people friends picked to share their beds with, but he honestly didn’t know what the hell cultured Lara saw in that arrogant pr-

He stuck his tongue in his cheek. It was that or bite it. The things he thought had this slippery way of oozing out of his mouth, and Lara had been a good friend for a long time. He wasn’t going to throw that friendship away over a man like Orin Price-Thomas.

A Wealth of Happenings: November 27, 2016

Hey there!

I wrote a paragraph on Wednesday, and then got busy with other things and forgot for the rest of the week:

  • I have a complete novel draft! And a homeschool report in progress. Also forward momentum on my #atozchallenge posts, and, at long last, “First Contact, With Jazz.” I also have a new rejection letter for “Presence,” which was “Beneath the Ice.” It’s a great letter that includes detailed ideas I’ll be able to use in my next revision pass. In other, non-writing news, it’s Thanksgiving Eve. =)

On Tuesday my son, 15, mentioned that he’d like to learn to play the cello. On Wednesday, a local friend whose daughter was his very first friend posted a student cello for sale. Talk about timing!

So, on Friday, we became cello owners. Miah spent some time exploring the tuner and metronome, learning how to change a string, and getting familiar with it. Next up is finding a teacher who will meet his needs and our budget.

In between, on Thursday, we maintained our family tradition of going to a Thanksgiving buffet, and watching the parade and the dog show.

Oh, and I found a fan fiction story I’d lost almost a year ago…and there are some other behind the scenes things in the works….more on those later, as they develop.

Here’s a teaser from that once-lost, now found story, “Too Close For Comfort.” Standard disclaimer applies; I neither own nor profit from them.

“From a book, T’Pol?” Trip felt all his hopes come crashing down inside him with the sound of shattering glass. Shards stabbed at his eyes, his heart, his soul – “If you need a book to tell you how you feel, you don’t feel what I want you to. I think maybe it’s time I go – “

How about you? Any big news? Accomplishments? Funny jokes or favorite dishes? Drop ‘em in the box below; let’s chat!

Note: Only those goals I interacted with during this session are listed. For complete goals lists, follow the links below.

Writing:

  • Blogging From A to Z April Challenge: Continue writing poems/drafting posts, on a rotating-week cycle. Tertiary goal. Wrote my G poem; Week 2: 6/6 written; Essay for “A” post; Week 1; 1/1 completed.
  • Kifo Island Chronicles: The Far Shore (KIC #5): Complete draft as a postscript to my NaNoWriMo efforts. Side goal. Now that Tsunamis is completed, it’s time to ease back into this. Reread Scenes 1-8 (which is still in progress); it’s been a while since I looked at this, and I need the refresher. Scene 8/24 complete; 24,899/ ~65,000 words; 3,392 new. 

Thankfully, he never sat in her section. He wanted to taunt first from a distance, so that it would build, this knowing that he was going to come for her.

Plotting:

  • Plot #atozchallenge 2017 posts. Primary goal. This has three components for each post: a poem, image, and themed essay. Chose poem styles for Week 5 (T-Z): copied formats for Week Four (N-S).

Revision:

  • The IDIC Romance: ReviseFirst Contact, With Jazz and get it in the hands of waiting betas. Revise Chapters 4-7 of A Backdrop of Stars; review 1-3; Love and Loss. Primary goal. Began revision of “FC,WJ” First Pass Complete: Scene 1/16; Scene 2/16 highlighted for revision. I think I’ve finally gotten the insight I needed to introduce what needs to be introduced without it being dry as Vulcan! ABOS: Relocated the three files (not easy; I didn’t name them with the story prefix) and reread. Split the third into two sections, since it was over 30 pages – too long really for a single chapter.

Social Media:

  • Make regular visits to others participating in hops and challenges I’ve joined. This will be a Thursday/Monday focus. Primary goal. Visited all of the WIPpet posters. Better than I’ve done in the past several weeks.

  • Interaction: Visit website, blog, ROW80, Albany NNWM, and Yakon Village FB pages; ff.net; Twitter; Instagram; and Pinterest at least weekly, each site. Secondary goal. I got to half; again, better than it’s been.
  • Continue in situ website design, with a focus on bringing in the various facets of my life in a more cohesive manner. Post one reblog and two snippets each week. This is a Friday/Tuesday focus. Tertiary goal. I posted to #8sunday and #SoCS/#weekendcoffeeshare.

Hometending:

  • Complete resets/reorganizations: study, family room, and porch. Use the 27 Thing Fling for structure/4 each per week. Add in 22 cycles a week for random indoor/outdoor tidying/hometending. Primary goal. (For the week): Random: 2322; study: 4/4; porch: 1/4; family; 2/4. A bit better than the rest of the month to date.

  • Homeschool Administration: Gather info/draft first quarter reports (due 12/15). Create Flickr portfolio for Miah; continue to file to Lise’s. Secondary goal. Completed Lise’s Mathematics and Sciences; 4/10 sections complete. Progress.

  • Personal Administration: Clean, organize, and back up all OneDrive Homeschool, Blogging, and Beta Reading files. Maintain email below 99 messages. Tertiary goal. Wednesday/Saturday focus. Kept the email at a much more reasonable level; spikes only into the 100-range. Blogging and Beta Reading files organized, culled, and sooo pretty!!! Homeschooling directory 1/3 main folders complete.

Lifetending:

  • My beloveds: One on one time with each, doing something of value to us both, each week. Continue planning/ attending outings (personal and family) as desired. Primary goal. Conversation; snuggles; videos; Thanksgiving buffet with the family.

  • NNWM local group: Interact regularly online and in person. Secondary goal. Visited FB page/ online sprints.

Selftending:

  • Journal six times each week. Gradually increase meditation to ten minutes six mornings, and four minutes three evenings. Primary goal. 4/6 journaling; 1/6 morning meditation. Not the best week for this…Other Things.

  • Fitness: Get a cumulative total of at least 75 minutes moderate physical activity 5 days weekly, 90 minutes thrice weekly. Secondary goal. 70: 5/5; 90: 3/3.

Prosperity is in the Details: November 20, 2016

Hey there!

November is winding down. Today, the 20th, I can claim my NaNoWriMo win, although I’ve still got a few scenes left to finish, so will be adding to my count until that’s done.

This week has been about the details….focused on a few things, with most others taking a back seat. There’s also some “invisible” stuff…a lot of reading, across a wide spectrum of views, particularly as regards politics and policies. It’s not always fun, and it’s sometimes frightening, and some reports are so biased in one direction or another that they aren’t reliable as sources, but still have something to say about the more extreme views.

Knowledge is power. It’s worth knowing what others are thinking and feeling – because it’s impossible to reach any common understanding if we won’t even listen to one another.

Some of us are trying. Others, by appearances, not so much..but maybe I’m wrong. I’d like to be. I’d like to live in a world full of people who are trying to find ways for all to be safe and happy – which has been a tenet of life in our home since our children were small.

But that’s enough philosophy, for now – it’s time for a ROW80 Update.

Note: Only those goals I interacted with during this session are listed. For complete goals lists, follow the links below.

Writing:

  • NaNoWriMo: Complete draft of Tsunamis (KIC#6); 24 Scenes, ~65,000 words. Primary goal. Scene 21/24 in progress; 54,988/~65,000 words). I’ve slowed down; I usually do as I approach the end of a draft. Still making progress, though.

Plotting:

Social Media:

  • Make regular visits to others participating in hops and challenges I’ve joined. This will be a Thursday/Monday focus. Primary goal. Visited current posters to ROW80 thread as of Wednesday evening. Better than I’ve done lately.

  • Interaction: Visit website, blog, ROW80, Albany NNWM, and Yakon Village FB pages; ff.net; Twitter; Instagram; and Pinterest at least weekly, each site. Secondary goal. A better week than I’ve had lately.
  • Continue in situ website design, with a focus on bringing in the various facets of my life in a more cohesive manner. Post one reblog and two snippets each week. This is a Friday/Tuesday focus. Tertiary goal. Getting back to this; posted two snippets: Sea Changes for WIPpet Wednesday, and “Monday Morning Coffee” for #8sunday. Also a bonus #SoCS fanfic post.,,because T’Pol made me do it! The lady with the ears can usually pick up on my slowing down at the end of a draft, and that’s when she finds all kinds of allegedly logical reasons why I should let her use me to tell her stories…personally, I think she just wants the Chief Engineer….

Hometending:

  • Complete resets/reorganizations: study, family room, and porch. Use the 27 Thing Fling for structure/4 each per week. Add in 22 cycles a week for random indoor/outdoor tidying/hometending. Primary goal. (For the week): Study: 4/4; Random inside: 26/22.

  • Personal Administration: Clean, organize, and back up all OneDrive Homeschool, Blogging, and Beta Reading files. Maintain email below 99 messages. Tertiary goal. Wednesday/Saturday focus. I’ve mostly kept it under 99. Calling this a success.

Lifetending:

  • My beloveds: One on one time with each, doing something of value to us both, each week. Continue planning/ attending outings (personal and family) as desired. Primary goal. Conversation; television. Homeschool pizza party and GameStop with the kids. Attending a grass-roots political organization meeting later today, followed by a NaNo write-in,

  • NNWM local group: Interact regularly online and in person. Secondary goal. Visited FB page.

Selftending:

  • Journal six times each week. Gradually increase meditation to ten minutes six mornings, and four minutes three evenings. Primary goal. Some….I didn’t really keep count. Maybe 4 and 3, with no evening.

  • Fitness: Get a cumulative total of at least 75 minutes moderate physical activity 5 days weekly, 90 minutes thrice weekly. Secondary goal. 3/5; 2/5; but some activity every day.
