“Something Totally Unrelated”: 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! We’ve got a variety of genres and talented writers just waiting for you to come sample their wordy wares. Come read one, or all, or pick a few like wildflowers or sweet berries….

And, if you’re inclined to share your own 8-10 sentence snippet, follow the link and sign up. It’s a great community to be a part of! =D

This week, I offer you the ten-sentence installment #6 in my serialized Star Trek: Enterprise flash fan fiction story, “Mission Accomplished”. We begin right where last week’s snippet, “Losing Focus” ended.

With a mystery to solve, T’Pol’s on to something, and a brainstorming volley ensues…but its this really what Captain Archer is looking for, or are they following T’Pol’s conquering fingertips down the wrong track?

“Something Totally Unrelated”

I’ll be damned – you’re right. We also don’t know what ‘few items’ he, she, or it absconded with.”

Or that the ‘M.A.’ was left by the invader-”

“Or that it was initials. Could’ve been a code, or something totally unrelated to the crime…”

“If there was a crime. Perhaps the ‘victim’ staged the scene to procure some benefit. Wasn’t that common practice, in Earth’s recent past?”

I think so. But the Cap’n said we had to use these clues.”

Are they on the right track?

Will they figure out the mystery?

Will T’Pol’s fingertips mind their manners?

Will Trip be able to resist, if they don’t?

What will they do next?

Come on back next week to find out!

Need to read back? Here’s all of “Mission Accomplished” that’s been posted, thus far:

Challenges like Story A Day September encourage me to think outside of my own experience. Fitting all the prompts into my fan fiction universe, ups the ante.

Of course, I also get to play with Trip and T’Pol! =D

And, now, the obligatory disclaimer:

Trip, T’Pol, and Trek: None of these are mine. Can I help it if these two unlikely lovers keep insisting I tell their stories? =)

Want more #8Sunday?


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. There’s definite chemistry between these two, both physically and mentally. It’s one of my favorite things, in the series, when they have these volleys that break things open…although it often comes with a lot more arguing than they seem to be doing here.

      Trip Tucker and Jon Archer have been friends for years. Trip’s a loyal guy, so he’s not going to be willing to disobey the Cap’n’s orders…which could put the proverbial short in the EPS conduit…we’ll have to see about that.

      I’m glad you enjoyed my “8”…these two simply will not let me go for long, so it’s nice that people like reading the stories they feed me. =)

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