Drab-let (Guess it, pick next): “Put It Behind Us”

From/for @supernovacoffee who requested 367 words.  First person to correctly identify the episode right to pick the next one.


“You’ve been quiet this morning Commander, something on your mind?”

The rest of the senior staff have left the conference room, but he waits patiently.

His eyes lose their focus on his own hands.  “Actually, yes,” he says honestly. “You scared me yesterday,”

She rises and moves to lean next to his chair.

“I thought this matter was behind us Chakotay.”

“Just because I stepped aside doesn’t mean it’s behind us.”

“I wasn’t going to let her die if I could help it, surely you understand.”

‘I do and I don’t.  I would also risk my life to save Kes,” he shakes his head.  “I should have been the one to do it.”

“That wasn’t allowed.”

“Then I shouldn’t have let you do it,” he says more harshly than he intended.  “Above everything it’s my obligation to keep you safe.”

“It’s your obligation to follow my orders,” she corrects. “And keeping me safe isn’t always possible.”

“True.  But this time it was.  I should have pulled you away.”

“She would have died,” she stresses.

“The lives of the many and the lives of the few, Kathryn. I’m glad things worked out.  But I’m telling you, we both made the wrong call.”

“My call didn’t endanger the lives of the many,” she argues, hands in the air.

“Yes.  It did. Your life is the lives of the many.  This crew needs you.”

“Are you saying that if something happens to me, you wouldn’t get everyone home?  Because I don’t believe that.”

“No. I’m fully prepared to take over command.  But Kathryn…” he says, placing his hand over hers, “I shouldn’t have to.  Not like this.  Not because of a bad decision.  You got lucky in that shrine and everyone knows it.”

“Luck had no bearing.  And if this is because of your personal feelings toward me…”

“Personal feelings made you cross a line,” he says abruptly.  Then he draws his own.  “I won’t let you do it again.”

She yanks her hand from underneath his.  “Is that a threat, Commander?”

“It’s a plea.”

She steadies her breath.

“You’re dismissed.”

He expected nothing less as he moves to leave.  

“And next time,” she adds before he’s gone.  “You will address me as Captain and ask permission before speaking freely.”


A/N: This was a difficult one for me. As much as I wanted a sappy-sweet, ‘I’m so glad you’re okay’ I realized that her decision (and his) would have bothered Chakotay immensely on several levels. It’s one of the first times we see her trying to be a martyr.  I think he’d be very concerned….

Readers forced to take quiz to show they understand story before commenting on it
People trying to comment on articles will now be forced to prove they understand what it's about. That's at least at Norwegian broadcaster NRK's website, which will present people who want to leave comments with a quiz that asks them about what the story is actually about. The creators of the quiz hope that asking people the questions will make sure that everyone on the comment actually understands it.

Favorite actor series | Ralph Fiennes: [On working with Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel] “The best experiences I’ve had as an actor have always been being part of a company or an ensemble. The worst experiences, or the least satisfying, I should say, have been when the actors were in their trailers and no one talks to each other,” “Ahead of this, I was worried, I didn’t know what it would be like but, actually, I loved it. And I could see why actors came back, because Wes creates this sort of family atmosphere.” - Ralph Fiennes

Being married to Eliot Spencer was not what one would call…normal. Given his job, your job, and how it bled into your personal lives, it was a miracle you even kept dating in the first place. It probably helped that you both understood when one party couldn’t make it home in time for dinner, or if one of you had to stay and work an overnight “shift.”

Your P.O.V.

I was bored so I decided to kill some time. After doing a lot of criminal things, being outside on a wild ride and dealing with the world, I thought it was fair for me to be lazy and get my pc. I was in bed and I found a game called ‘the impossible quiz’. That’s what I was trying to solve and it had been twenty minutes of frustration already.

I had one life left and I had a completely idiotic question ‘..you are my candy girl’ and the answers were ‘1. Sugar 2. Jam 3. Marmalade 4. honey’. Since I had no skips left I decided to choose Jam. It was wrong. 

‘’Fuck you!’’ I yelled at the pc as I lost the quiz again. Then I shut it and nearly threw it away from me. It really pissed me off. ‘’What’s upsetting you?’’ I heard Joker who had walked in without me noticing. I turned to look at my shirtless boyfriend who found this amusing. ‘’That fucking game or quiz..whatever’’ I muttered and crossed my arms. I was so done with that thing.

‘’Still playing the impossible quiz?’’ He asked me while sitting down in bed with me. I just nodded and took a deep breath. ‘’Well at least it’s name is fitting’’ He snickered and thought it was a good idea to make me more angry. I rolled my eyes and faced away from my boyfriend who knew how to be a total dick sometimes.

‘’Don’t be so angry doll, it’s just a game’’ He sighed after laughing. Then he touched my arm softly, causing me to look at him. ‘’I dare you to play it without losing your temper’’ I said a little encouragingly. His red smile froze and he glanced at the pc. ‘’Fine’’ He accepted the challenge.

It didn’t take long until we were both frustrated with that game.

It was Eliot’s decision to get a dog. Of course, you loved dogs, but you were more of a cat person. You loved the dog, obviously, and when Eliot was away (which was more often than not) you took care of her. She was sweet, but she was a handful.

Why did I become a doctor?

I feel like my answer to these questions has changed a bit as the years have gone on, but here goes:

I always wanted to be a doctor. Like always. My reasons changed as I got older and smarter, but the goal was always the same.  I wish I could say something like I was inspired by a dramatic personal illness or a family member’s medical problems, but I wasn’t. I didn’t pick it to follow in the footsteps of a parent, because neither of mine were in medicine. I didn’t set off wanting to save the world or cure cancer or even “help people”. For me, being a doctor just made sense. I was smart and I liked science and I liked people, so it just fit. 

I never put much thought into being anything in medicine other than a doctor. Of course, every day I have to sort of re-evaluate that choice and decide if I still want to be a doctor. Some days I definitely don’t. I daydream about “simpler” jobs. Jobs with less red tape and politics and debt burden and so on and so forth. 

What about my readers? How did you all decide to be doctors (or whatever else you may be?)?

Reader Quiz:

What’s the best Christmas (or Hanukkah) present you ever got? And what’s the best you ever gave? 

I think the best thing I ever gave (or at least it got the best response) was an autographed picture of the cast of Star Trek for my Trekkie BFF in high school. She nearly lost her mind when she opened it.
