Tiny Flames: The IDIC Romance for #WeWriWa – #8Sunday

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors’ Eight Sentence Sunday! 

It’s the weekly hop for everyone who loves to write! Sign up below with your name, blog and email and share an 8 to 10 sentence snippet of your writing on Sunday. Your post needs to be live between 12:00 noon on Saturday 05/09/15 and 9:00 AM on Sunday 05/10/15. Visit other participants on the list and read, critique, and comment on their 8sunday posts.

It’s a second chance to share a small snippet of my current writing. Most weeks, I tie them back to my WIPpet Wednesday post, so reading both can give a deeper peek…


  • Trip, T’Pol, and Star Trek: Enterprise belong to Paramount, even if Paramount has forgotten all about them…I couldn’t leave them sitting on a bed holding hands against their shared pain, so I’m giving them a fanfiction hug.

This snippet follows a few paragraphs after last week’s WIPpet Wednesday post, Adrian’s Sticky Note and Other Little Things.

She sat there on her bed, her tears dripping slowly and Vulcan-silent, watching him as tiny flames danced in her wide and hurting eyes. As the light threw itself around the room, Trip was overwhelmed with the sense that he was home.

Home. Here. In T’Pol’s quarters, with her plum and blue bedding, her silks, her candles – a woman’s touch, but not a human woman’s. Her own.

His heart was heavy and light at the same time, and he knew.

It was time.

Time for what? What’s Trip planning? What will T’Pol think of whatever it is? Will it help to ease the pain? Bring them more? Any guesses?

In case you don’t want to play guessing games, here’s the full story

Want more #8Sunday? Here you go!


I am myself. I own my life, and live with three other people who own theirs. My intention is to do only those things that bring me joy, and to give myself wholly to those things I do. Writing has been my passion throughout my life, and this will become the home for my writing life...because it brings me great joy!

    1. Teresa,

      So sorry you got lost in my pending folder! Four months of writing challenges, and some things got lost along the way…The one time T’Pol is shown crying, it’s silent. There’s a scene in Star Trek: The Motion Picture that shows Spock crying a silent tear. I drew on those. I think there are times that T’Pol cries as we do, but mostly, it’s a silent, deep expression of sorrow.

      The disclaimer evolves and changes. But I don’t want those who want to make money off Trek to think I want to cut into their profits, because it’s absolutely not like that. I just can’t stop these two from telling me stories…

    1. You can click the full story link and read the whole thing, right now! =)

      I write my fan fiction for passion, and it’s always freely available. =) Since I’ll be sharing next week from something I haven’t written yet, I don’t want you to miss the chance to find out!

      So happy you stopped by!

  1. So many of my first responses to these snippets are, “Oh, Trip.” So, I’m going with that again. 🙂 And I have Enterprise queued on Netflix(all your fault;) ) really need to get around to watching it.

    1. “Oh, Trip” is almost always a good bet. Because, well, Trip is…Trip. =)

      What he’s about to do is pretty Trippy (Trippish? Triplike? – I don’t know – maybe I’ll have a better idea after I sleep, but I bought an Kindle book by Wil Wheaton, and he’s been cracking me up and making me cry all night while my Accomplice sleeps beside me with no clue how much fun I’m having….).

      I hope you enjoy Enterprise even a fraction as much as I have. I’ll gladly accept the blame (and pass it on to Eden, because she’s the one who got ME to watch it…).

        1. Maybe you didn’t exactly TRY…but you definitely ENTICED. Lady Vulcans and their particularly Vulcan problems…

          It was sitting in your car, outside Professor Java’s, because we had once again jabbered past closing time…maybe three years or so ago…

          It did take me a while to get to it, after that, but when I bumped into it on Netflix a few months later…

          But, in the final analysis, if it’s Trek-related, you’re at the root of it. You, and James Blish… but I can’t thank him anymore, so you get the lilacs, and the gratitude – and you’re stuck with me! =)

    1. T’Pol gets rather – agitated – if I don’t share the things she shows me. I might say that’s not exactly logical – but her ears are way too sensitive, and her fighting skills too keen, so I won’t.

Take a chance! Type something in this box, and see what happens! =D
