“You’re READING It!”: #Loveuary Day Fifteen

Ritu from But I Smile Anyway created the #Loveuary blog hop,  which is 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.

This drabble takes place a few days after the last T’Pol story,Research.” Phlox has invaded hallowed ground, and T’Pol has something to say about it….

You’re READING It!”

“You interfered with my research, Phlox!”

“I moved it aside to eat breakfast.”

“You’re reading it!”

“Indeed. The roles of the butterfly, dragonfly, and succubus in human mythology. A comparative exploration of cricket and baseball.”

“Please desist.”

“The history of the A-line skirt and a biography of Lady Gaga. Characteristics of the Terran wombat, platypus, and the megalodon, now extinct. Chemical formulas for diatomaceous earth and polysaccharides.


Stockholm syndrome;  definition of ‘kilobyte’; an egg roll recipe. A very – diverse – list, T’Pol.”

“I can fill myself with this.”


“Perhaps, Doctor, it’s also that I can’t kill myself with research.”

What does T’Pol mean by this?

    • My secret weapon? The list as a plot device. =)
      There’s lots of possibilities for what could be in Hoshi’s box, and many things T’Pol could be researching. Of course, I know what’s in that box…and I know the story of why T’Pol’s researching the things she is…
      But of course, I’m not going to tell until it’s the right time to reveal it…
      Also, I used to see how many of my school vocabulary words I could fit into a sentence, so I suppose that was good training!
