“You Wouldn’t Dare” 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!

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.

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!


Trip’s facing the music – in the form of Ensign Hoshi Sato, who has her own tune to play…

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 October 4, 2017.
  • I have 4 paragraphs for you today.

“You Wouldn’t Dare”

“You wouldn’t dare.”

“Want to test that theory, Trip?”

“ That’s Commander Tucker to you. And I can order you not to say anything to my mother about what happens on the Bridge. I’m your superior officer.”

“I’ve done my homework, Trip. A Vulcan High Command rank of Sub-Commander supersedes yours, in case you didn’t know. So what you were doing out there was technically insubordination. But you’re right. Maybe it’s not your mother I should speak to. I do have a direct line to Admiral Forest -”

Will Hoshi make good on her threat?

Can Trip dissuade her?

What’s T’Pol up to?

Any guesses?

If you enjoyed this snippet, and want something more before next Wednesday, you can pop over to my fanfiction.net page.

And, as always, clicking the little blue froggy above will carry you on to other WIPpet offerings from our talented and diverse group of writerly folks. You can even add your own date-related excerpt if you’re so inclined!


    • Hoshi is sweet – but she means business, too! Trip had better watch himself – I don’t think he wants to get on bad footing with either of these women , and certainly not BOTH of them! =)

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