Summary: After the fall of the Terran Empire, the Alliance took control of the Alpha Quadrant, subjugating the lessar races, including Terrans and Vulcans. Some Terrans, like Kathryn Janeway, work for the Alliance while others, like Beverly Howard, fight against them in small resistance cells. When Kathryn's work stumbles onto the secret to finding a ghost fleet, Beverly 'rescues' her and brings her to the Terran side. Intendant Ro looks for ghost fleet on behalf of her Empress while rebels and pirates scramble to claim it before something darker than the Alliance finds them all.

Summary: I had always loved Vulcan better than Earth, but there are certain things I couldn't accept and the Vulcan prejudices against my son was simple illogical and unforgivable. My son deserved a home where he could be loved and accepted and I would do everything in my power to make sure he found such a place.
Even if it meant leaving the man and the world I loved behind and traveling to Earth to become a Alien Languages Teacher in Riverside, Iowa.

Title: Hard Won

Characters/Pairings: All main characters from Voyager, canon friendships, three OCs
Word Count: 18,863
Summary: Voyager, on it's long journey home from the other side of the world, stops for supplies on an island they thought was uninhabited. Things go from bad to worse when they find themselves captured by locals and then under attack from Kazon pirates.
Notes: This is an AU set on the high seas of the 13-1500s, starring the Voyager crew as sailors rather than space explorers. It's fun, I promise! I had to post this in different parts because livejournal threw a fit and said it was too big. The journal it links to is the journal where I post all stories set in the AU I came up with, the Go Far series.

Warnings: minor character death, AU, spoilers for ep. 3.08“Twilight”
Word Count: 26,200
Summary: Sometimes it was easier to imagine that Vulcan had been destroyed along with Earth. That her entire world was here: This house, this dog, this man.
It was easier than acknowledging that her entire world – house, dog, man – was hers by choice. Her choice: one that could not be undone, one that was driven by forces beyond herself. Sometimes she told herself it was not really a choice at all, but the only option available.
Sometimes she even believed it.
This is the story of everything that happened before breakfast.
Notes: I never used to think of myself as an Enterprise fan, but in the last year or so I have fallen hard for this little show, and I think it deserved far better than it got from Berman and Braga. There was a lot of potential that never got realized, but episodes like Twilight did some amazing things, and it was a hell of a lot of fun to play with it. I owe Mike Sussman huge props for a great writing job, and for sharing all the little tidbits from filming that then made their way to Memory Alpha for me to contemplate.
This is my first Big Bang and probably the longest single work I have actually gotten to a postable state, and there’s a few people who have a lot of my thanks for that; in no particular order: Vhary, Stephanie, seanchaidh and athena4lynn, who were cheerleaders and encouragers and let me bounce ideas off of them and were around for late-night chats when I felt like I’d never have another good idea, as well as being outstanding beta readers. Nemaio to all of you, and <3!
