Welcome to WIPpet Wednesday, a weekly blog hop which encourages writers to move WIPs (works-in-progress) to publication by posting excerpts related to the date. It’s hosted by the lovely K.L. Schwengel, maven of bad boys, stock dogs, and flying monkeys! She may be less physically present for a bit, but she’s still our fearless shepherd…or something like that, anyway.
These stories are Star Trek: Enterprise fan fiction, dealing with the inter-species relationship between T’Pol, a Vulcan scientist, and Trip Tucker, the extremely human Chief Engineer…
- 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 is an extrapolated “might-have-been” story. No real spoilers; just what Trip and T’Pol show me…
- Today is May 13, 2015.
- I added the day and the date, for 18 sentences.
She stood there, the paddle propped against her pink clad shoulder, hands on her hips in a pose she’d gotten from him, just like the thigh-length T-shirt that was the only thing she wore.
“I understand your need for Seclusion, T’Pol, and your desire to explore, as well. However, you haven’t completed the cycle yet.”
“I am lucid. I have been, for two days.” She frowned, then added, “Perhaps longer.”
“Which is a clear indicator that you will not remain so. The compulsion to mate will likely return several more times before the cycle ends. It’s not wise to be away from your support network, not yet. Patience would be a better approach.”
“I intend to go. Trip.” That wasn’t a question, not even a little bit. She’d probably use her nerve pinch and sling him over her shoulder if he dared to refuse her. She might be lucid, but her emotions – those were still powerful, and her impulse control was all but nonexistent, most of the time.
“Though she be but little, she is fierce.” Trip read from her shirt, grinning. “You wanna go, pepperpot, we go.”
Where does T’Pol want to go? Why is she only wearing a pink T-shirt? Why does Phlox think it’s a bad idea? Is he right?
