“Indeed There Is”: #SoCs and  #Loveuary Day Eighteen

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.

Since it’s Saturday, I’m adding the Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt word for today, “ham”, used however we want it.

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 roughly concurrently with “Bad Art” – a few days after the prior T’Pol story “You’re READING It!”

Indeed There Is”

“How are you feeling, T’Pol?”

“As though I have been caught in an endless SNAFU, Doctor.” T’Pol’s sigh was deep; she looked as though she hadn’t slept or meditated since Phlox left her three days ago.

“Your research continues?” She passed him her PADD. “A comparison of hoverboards and scooters; another of the catapult and trebuchet. Descriptions of twentieth-century entertainments: Dungeons and Dragons; the TARDIS, and The Stepford Wives. A history of the Romanov dynasty; instructions for curing ham and canoeing. Wearing a lampshade on your head. Is there a theme to these investigations?”

Her head bowed. “Indeed there is.”

What IS the theme of T’Pol’s research?

Today’s prompts are courtesy of…
