“It’s Dangerous”: 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 amd talented writers just waiting for you to come sample their wordy wares. Come read one, or all, or pick a few like Halloween treats….

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, as a post-Halloween treat, I offer you the eight-sentence installment #8 in my serialized Star Trek: Enterprise flash fan fiction story, “Mission Accomplished”, which tal. We begin right where last week’s snippet, This Damned Mystery ended. 

T’Pol’s kisses have followed where her fingertips led her, and she’s just claimed that she’s solved the mystery the Captain assigned them…but has she?

There’s some potentially creative punctuation here, but, since it’s ‘officially’ only eight sentences, it shouldn’t matter.

“It’s Dangerous”

You say the sexiest things -but it’s dangerous, kissing here, pepperpot… anyone could walk in…”

Then come with me…” It was a sultry whisper, and her body pressed up tight against him. If he didn’t go along, all her control might go out the airlock. Once she was revved up, she wasn’t even close to subtle.

All right. But you gotta let me go, until we’re in the turbolift. Tell me what our report is going to say, while we walk.”

Has T’Pol really solved the mystery?

Will Trip accept her ‘solution’?

Will she let go of him?

Can she?

Will the Captain be satisfied with the results of their ‘team-building exercises’?

Will they?

Come on back next week to find out!

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

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? =)

Have you ever finished a book, movie, or series, and thought there was more to the story? Have you ever tried to write it? If so, how did it turn out? If not, why not?

Want more #8Sunday?

And now, a Halloween treat….or is it a trick?


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. Subtlety has a way of disappearing when someone is all hot and bothered!

    Some books and films definitely end with an unresolved cliffhanger, though sometimes it’s better to make our own imagining of what happened afterwards than to have a sequel that might never meet our expectations. Just look at Alexandra Ripley’s dreadful Scarlett, which is such an unravelling of the established characters we grew to knew and love in the original GWTW, not to mention full of ridiculous storylines and dialogue. I imagine any sequel to the similar Forever Amber would be just as disappointing, whereas we can’t go wrong if we imagine how Amber won Bruce back after they got to the 13 Colonies.

    1. Vulcans are, as a species, particularly unsubtle when aroused. Which is odd, because there’s a lot of subtlety that leads up to that point…something to ponder, but not too much until it’s their turn again…

      I don’t think I would like any sequel to GWTW. It seems like one of the stories that ended in a perfect place to let each of us decide and dream about that mythical What’s Next….

      I don’t know Forever Amber, but I want my sequels to be well done. If I’m writing them, I want them to be believable, yet still surprising and fresh.Especially, maybe for my fan fiction, because these are established characters who are part of a canon I respect deeply.

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