Attempt to Adapt for WIPpet Wednesday

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.We’re led by the capable fingers and nimble mind of Emily Wrayburn.

Hello there, fellow WIPpeteers – and, to those just along for the ride – welcome! Hop in, get comfy…but don’t leave popcorn in the center seat!

This has been a quieter week for me, but we’re ramping up for another growth cycle in our small business, so there is plenty for me to do. Honestly, there’s more to do than I can do, so I’m portioning it out, trying to find a workable blend of time for my own pursuits (fitness, writing, just being me), family interests (driving practice, homeschooling, hometending, talking, and the like), and the business (marketing and branding, administration, working markets and events).

But right now, it’s time for another installment of my TnT fan fiction story, adapted from Humanity’s Enterprise. It’s a patchwork of stories, written in different styles, at different times, and for different projects. I’m slowly figuring out how to pull them all together into a coherent whole that explores just how and why T’Pol was the one Vulcan chosen to accompany Enterprise NX-01 on her maiden voyage – and peeks behind-the-scenes on that first mission.

I’ve decided to use this story, once revision gets to a point I’m comfortable with, as my intiation into Wattpad. So please don’t hesitate to let me know if something’s not working for you – it will make a better story in the long run!


T’Pol is inordinately aware of the Chief Engineer…will she be able to tend to her duty.

Here’s the standard disclaimer. I don’t own them; I don’t make money from them; I just love them, and I tell the stories they give me as well as I can.

WIPpet Math:

  • Today is September 20, 2017.
  • I have 2 paragraphs for you today – I subtracted the second digit of the day from the first (2-0 = 2).

Attempt to Adapt

“I’ll try to remember that,” she answered, as she had in the Ready Room. Logically, such details as his respiratory rate were of no concern to her. There should be no uneasy sensation in her digestive tract in relation to Commander “Call Me Trip” Tucker. At the earliest opportunity, she would meditate to deal with the agitation this human caused her. Until then, she must attempt to adapt.

Decided, T’Pol began a cursory examination of the science station. But she couldn’t focus on her duties. She remained in this heightened sense of awareness, her entire body tingling, until the moment he turned away.

Will T’Pol be able to adapt?

Why is her body tingling?

And why did Trip stare at her so long?

Any guesses?

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. Ohhh, this is gonna be fun. 😀 *tries to keep all her dirty thoughts/innuendos to herself* I imagine in her current state, T’Pol may not take them in the spirit they’re meant. 😀

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