As a Voyager fan my one major critique of Star Trek: Beyond is that we didn’t get the Tuvix inspired transporter malfunction Jaylah/Kirk mashup that the movie so blatantly set up.

Imagine: right at the film amps up into its climax, there’s a shower of sparks from the MacGyvered transporter pad and the two glistening beams merge last minute into one that slowly resolves itself into the broad-shouldered and undeniably alien physique of Jamelah, agender captain of the stars, their dancer’s legs swaggering across the deck in thick boots while their white bangs flop distractingly across their pale, distressingly handsome face. The yellow stripes on their black shoulder pads are more reminiscent of a warning than a mark of command, like hazard tape molded into armor, but there’s something undeniably right about the glint of the Starfleet insignia pinned upon their breast.

All of Scotty’s stammered assurances that he can fix this, just give him a moment, are dismissed with a wave of one gauntleted, thickly calloused hand.

“Don’t bother,” they say, dropping into the captain’s seat with the grateful ease of a traveler falling once more into their own bed.  “I’ve got it from here.”

Imagine their grin, red-gummed, blunt-toothed, black facial markings crinkling as they scroll through Jaylah’s playlist and find something old and familiar and beloved to all parts of them. 

Imagine their joy as they lean forward, fingers curled tight around metal armrests, and get ready to make some noise

A/N: Hi! *peeks sheepishly around the corner*. I know it’s been ages. I got seriously sidetracked by another project (“Holiday”) which I’ve been writing for district12drabbles. The weekly prompt deadline has been motivating and captivated most of my writing time. I can’t thank the lovely readers enough who have asked about this story (both here and on Tumblr). It is unbelievably inspiring to know someone is out there is looking forward to the next part of the story.

Continuing and endless gratitude to Court81981 for her beta magic. I am so thankful for every morsel of her precious time and attention.

My nigga
—  My sibling in the struggle. Fellow child of my culture. One who I respect as a member of that extended family, a part of my tribe, a warrior from that rebellious band of brothers that fight the same fight. Born as a hideous brand, worn as a scar, shown with pride to those who share the experience, who have felt the pain of that wound. Me, in different shoes.

Steve/Natasha AU: in order to get close to and take down a Manhattan bad guy, Steve and Natasha have to go undercover and pose as a married couple.

I can’t keep waiting for you. You know you have my heart. You know that I will always care. I will keep asking how you’re doing even when my texts go unnoticed. I will constantly remind you to take your medicine when you’re down with the flu. I will crack even the lamest jokes just to see you smile. I will give the last slice of my favorite cake when you ask.

But all these have to stop. I can’t always be the girl who keeps holding on to someone who isn’t even there. I can’t fall for the person who cannot even assure what he feels for me. I can’t keep missing out on parties with my friends or dinners with the family because you said you wanted to spend the weekends with me. I can’t keep saying no to people who make time to be with me because we made plans, plans that never push through.

If you truly wished to be with me, if you truly wanted me to be yours, then you would have done so. I would have seen your efforts. I would have felt your presence. I can’t stay committed to someone who is not committed to me.

Please allow me to let you go. I would have given the world to stand beside you, to travel all the places and witness all the sights with you, face life through thick and thin, but if I keep on waiting for the day you finally decide to be with me, life will pass me by.

Bitty keeps a list of every reporter who has ever said anything mean about Jack. He doesn’t know what he’ll DO with the information, but it feels good to have.

He confesses this to Bob one night, saying, “I feel like maybe I’m taking this press thing too seriously.”

“Son,” Bob says. “No.”

He sends Bitty a voluminous Excel spreadsheet with entries dating back to 1990.

Clexa prompt: Clarke proposed, but Lexa, the adorable dork that she is, has no idea what it means and, in fact, has already been 'grounder married' to Clarke for ages. Hijinks ensue.

Adorable prompt is adorable! Who doesn’t love Lexa being a clueless dork? I know I do. Sorry for taking so long to answer, I hope this makes up for the wait.

Summary:

Scientifically speaking, if one were to assume the universe as a higher, supernatural power, there is a very real possibility that the universe has favourites. People it likes, people it favours, people that never have anything bad or awkward or emotionally mortifying happen to them.

Scientifically speaking, Luke is not one of them.

Or, the one in which Luke attends a music school, Michael is a bit of a dick and feelings are way overrated.
