“Research”: #Loveuary Day Twelve

Ritu from But I Smile Anyway created the #Loveuary blog hop, which feels like a perfect time to explore the next three chapters of my Star Trek: Enterprise  TnT fan fiction story, Love and Loss  – a hundred words at a time.

I’m using word prompts for each day, randomly gathered. Prompt words appear in bold, and today’s contributors are credited at the end of the post.

One more thing: Standard disclaimer applies. I don’t own these characters or the world they inhabit. They just like whispering and shouting stories into my brain, which I share with you freely, as an act of love.


“What’s this, Vulcan?” Shran stared, bewildered, at the PADDs and paper books scattered over the bed.

“Research.” T’Pol didn’t look up, even though he had the tart lemonade she found “agreeable.”



“On what?”

“Initially, the floral species orchidaceae. Then Matisse, a deceased Terran artist. Also, an inquiry on the origins of human computing technology, beginning with Babbage and Lovelace.Her voice was almost hypnotic. She focused on the PADD she held.

“That sounds positively tortuous. I predict you’ll annihilate it soon enough.”

She aimed her formidable stare at him. “If you don’t cease, Shran, I shall defenestrate you.”

Will T’Pol actually throw Shran out the window?!
