Title: Third-hand Knitwear
Pairing: Jadzia Dax/Kira Nerys (With a reference to Julian Bashir/OMC)
Warning: Discussion of past rape.
Summary: In a different world, Nerys would have grown up praying for love, for diligence at her school work, and for patience when dealing with her family. This Nerys grew up praying for strength, fortitude, and for the Cardassians to leave her alone.
Living on the station with her memories of occupied Bajor is harder than Nerys thought it would be.
Note: Part of the Not For Money and Not For Food series"
. Reading the rest of the series is not necessary to follow this fic, but it probably makes more sense in context. I have recently started watching DS9 for the first time, and at the time of writing this, I have yet to see the whole series, so if some elements of this story disagree with later canon, that's why. Comments and criticism are hugely appreciated.( Third-hand KnitwearCollapse )

T'Pring had never expected to leave Vulcan, much less join Starfleet.Word Count:
This is a stand-alone snippet of a long-abandoned WIP I liked far too much to leave languishing in my WIP file.AO3
Relationship: Kira Nerys/Jadzia Dax
Warnings/Content: Discussion of malnutrition and death during the Occupation of Bajor. Contains breast-play and biting during sex.
Summary: Home is sweat and smoke and starvation, Nerys thought, and threw the perfume bottle against the wall.
Nerys struggles with her memories of the Occupation and the loss of her family. Jadzia does her best to help her out. Contains angst and comfort sex.
Author's Note: Continuation of From a Small Moon
. It's not necessary to read the first part to follow this, but it probably works better in context.( HedonismCollapse )
First, I'd like to apologize for not getting the Darwin Fest claims post up and running. I've been out of town for work the past week, and the promised hotel wi-fi was completely non-existent. Then my iPad charger died, so I couldn't even go to Starbucks to use the internet. Prompts are still coming in, so if you feel the urge, come by and leave a few here
made us an awesome promo banner.
We also have two new mods joining our team - yeomanrand
. Since I am on my way out of town yet again, they are going to decide on new claims and posting dates for our fest. They will also be keeping an eye on our moderation queue and tag list, and all sorts of other modly stuff. I'm super excited to have them on board!
From a Small Moon Relationship:
Kira Nerys/Jadzia DaxRating:
Discussion of past rape and abuse. Also includes light bondage and very light D/s.Summary:
Kira Nerys has always known she wants sleep with women, but she's never had the chance to explore her sexuality. When Jadzia Dax wants to be with her too, Kira can't quite believe her luck. Meanwhile, her experiences during the Occupation of Bajor are still very much alive in Kira's mind...Author's Note:
This fic was inspired by Major Kira's comment in the season two episode Necessary Evil
. When Kira thinks that Odo might be propositioning her, she says, "I don't do that. Not for money and not for food." This made me think about Kira's experiences during the Occupation, and inspired this fic. I'm currently watching Deep Space Nine for the first time and I'm only at the beginning of season three, so if this fic containts elements that are inconsistent with later series, please forgive it. ( Not for money, and not for food.Collapse )
's mod team could use a new member or two...you know, so it can actually be a mod team instead of just little ol' me. Modding duties consist mostly of keeping an eye on the moderation queue, adding the occasional tag, and assisting with running or promoting fests. We have had only one incident of wank/trolling in this comm's entire four-year history, so life as a moderator here is fairly drama free. Interested? Have questions? PM igrockspock
or email kantscategorical [at] gmail [dot] com and tell me why you'd like to be a moderator here.
2. Everyone sounded super excited about Darwin fest
when I polled the comm, but the prompt post only has 16 prompts. What gives? As it stands, I don't think there are enough prompts for a real prompt-and-claim fest, so if you'd like to see it happen, get over there and start prompting! Also, my life is super-busy right now, so if anyone wants to help out by promoting the fest on your flist or relative Star Trek comms, that would be great!
The verdict is in - it sounds like you guys want to celebrate Ensign Darwin as much as I do! We'll be hosting a good old fashioned prompt-and-claim fest. For those of you who haven't participated in one of those in this comm before, here's how it works. I've included the posting procedures for all you Type A advanced planners out there.
- Anyone can prompt, even if you don't plan to write.
- Leave as many prompts as you like, but only one per comment.
- Het, gen, and femslash are all welcome, so long as Ensign Darwin remains the focus.
( Dates, Claiming, and Posting InfoCollapse )
Questions or concerns? Please ask in the first comment thread of this post.
P.S. If anyone can get me a decent pic of Darwin, I will make us a promo banner...or gratefully accept promo banners made by our comm members. *hint* *hint*
