I saw this and couldn’t resist writing it.
For the three sentence fic challenge:
It wasn’t that Newt was hard to intimidate, it was really just that he got so caught up in his own thought processes that it never occurred to him to feel intimidated until he was in mortal peril, and right now he realized that might be one of those times.
Hannibal sat in front of him utterly serene, stirring his tea with Sweet ‘n Low, staring at him like the only reason Newt was still breathing was because he was in a good mood that day (Newt thought, at least, it was impossible to tell through the sunglasses that he wore even inside his coffee shop.)
"So why the hell are you here," the beast of a man snarled, and Newt decided that if he managed to survive this encounter, he was never using Craigslist to find a job ever again.
Previews for Love Love Chau!!: The Second
Star Trek AU!
This is the sketch-version, but I’ll properly colour it and add Loki, too :)
Introduction written by Khirsah:
Title: Untitled. I am terrible at titles. I actually ended up pouring through old Sci-Fi episode titles hoping one would leap out at me. I’ve been toying with Strange New Worlds; The Sum of Its Parts; Belly of the Beast; Coming of Age; Hero Worship; and Chain of Command. If you have any ideas or opinions, let me know!
Author: Khirsah with an amaaazing cover and some incredible editorial advice by Maelikki
Pairings: Billy/Teddy will be the primary pairing. Potential secondary pairings include Noh-Varr/David/Tommy and Eli/Kate.
Length and Rating: Explicit, duh. Likely hovering embarrassingly near 100k by the end.
Delivery: Chaptered and carefully balanced with other fandom commitments.
Characters: Billy is a Betazoid. (Like Deanna Troi, for all The Next Generation fans.) Betazoids are empathic and telepathic humanoids with incredibly dark eyes. He’s an Intelligence specialist and wears gold stripes on his cadet uniform. He comes from a wealthy but otherwise average family and grew up on Betazed with his mother, father, and two younger brothers. When he came to the Academy, the last thing he expected was to fall in love with a Trill.
Teddy is a Trill. (Like Jadzia Dax, for all Deep Space Nine fans.) He begins the story as an Unjoined Trill but receives a symbiote during the first main storyline, which gives him access to the memories and personalities of nine distinct lifetimes. He is a spotted Trill, with leopard-like spots following the curve of his face from the crown of his head all the way down his neck, shoulders, sides, hips, and legs, to his heels. (Yes, those spots go allllll the way down.) He’s a Science officer and wears blue stripes on his cadet uniform. He grew up bouncing from planet to planet with his mother (also Unjoined), unaware of his true parentage. Teddy…does not have an easy time of the Joining.
Eli is a Romulan (like the bad guy in the NuTrek reboot)—specifically, he is the first Romulan to enter the Academy, so all eyes are on him (and a lot of people go out of their way to give him trouble). Because of this, Eli has a lot of anger issues to work through and sometimes even tries to pass as Vulcan to avoid trouble. He is Command track and has red stripes on his cadet uniform. His parents died in action and he was raised by his grandparents, who have been branded traitors to the Romulan empire. He and Kate are locked in competition for the Captaincy. There is potential for a Kate/Eli romance way, way down the line, but that is still in question.
Kate is a human and the only daughter of an unscrupulous StarFleet Admiral. She hates everything her father stands for and is in a constant state of rebellion. She makes it a point to uncover the dark, seedy underbelly of StarFleet whenever possible. She’s Command track, so she has red stripes on her cadet uniform.
David is a Vulcan (like Spock, duh). He is a quintessential Vulcan—serene and composed and incredibly snarky if you know what to listen for. He is Medical, which means he wears blue stripes on his cadet uniform. He was raised on Vulcan with his younger sister and left the Vulcan Science Institute over philosophical differences. He is part of a potential David/Tommy/Noh-Varr threesome. (Well, moresome—see Noh-Varr for details). He keeps Tommy and Noh-Varr from ripping each other’s’ faces off, and they keep his feathers ruffled. It’s really hot.
Tommy is a Bajoran (like Kira for the Deep Space Nine fans) which means he has a brow ridge and wears an earring and earcuff linked by a chain. He was a freedom fighter during the Cardassian occupation. He’s a classic sass first, ask questions later guy with a huge chip on his shoulder. Tommy is the pilot, which means he wears red stripes on his cadet uniform. He also looks exactly like Billy (other than obvious racial differences), which shouldn’t be possible.
Noh-Varr is an Andorian. Well, mostly-Andorian—one of his four parents was actually Aenar, which means he is a lighter shade of blue than true-blooded Andorians. He is Engineering, so he wears gold stripes on his cadet uniform. Discerning eyes will notice some Noh sporting some very interesting hardware in Likki’s picture. That is because, at some point in the story, Noh is captured and partially assimilated by the Borg. He carries the scars of that experience from that point on. He considers David and Tommy his, and is on the lookout for the fourth and final member of their group bonding. (In Andorian culture, family units are made up of four adults, two male and two female. David feels it is illogical to ask which of them Noh considers female, as both he and Tommy are quite obviously male. Tommy doesn’t ask because he’s afraid Noh will say it’s him, and the last time he popped Noh one, it ended in a sexually charged pitched battle that he…really needs to marshal his strength for.)
America is a Klingon (Worf, for you The New Generation fans). This means she is almost always glowering and likes to punch things. A lot. She is—what else?—Security, which means she wears gold stripes on her cadet uniform. She was raised near the neutral zone by her two mothers and is quite comfortable with seedy bars, shifty smugglers, and throwing her weight around.
Vision is an android (like Data for The Next Generation fans). He is Operations, so he wears gold stripes on his cadet uniform. He was created by a genius named Kang.
Cassie is an Orion (like Gaila for NuTrek fans). She’s Science, so she wears blue stripes on her cadet uniform. She split her time growing up between her mother’s home and her step-mother’s home. Her step-mother had a different view of the relationship between men and women and did not use her pheromones or enact the elaborate slave/owner ploy much of Orion sexual politics is based around. As a result, Cassie grew up feeling out of place in Orion culture. She is still trying to decide how she feels about this and herself.
Loki (not pictured) is a Q and not one of the cadets. He is a trickster and an asshole and gets them into a LOT of trouble.
Basic Summary: Brought together as a cadet training team in the Academy, the Young Avengers find themselves facing an enemy who preys on the young and seems to control time itself. Including romance, sex, teenage rebellion, a journey into the heart of a singularity, twins who shouldn’t even exist, more Qs than should be legal, holodeck adventures, and the Borg. Not including an adherence to any canonical Star Trek timeline.
