It was a concept story for tying all of the seperate Jian stories into one, but it didn't get far. Will take any suggestions on how to continue. Enjoy.

This is the beginning of story I wrote about a girl, a cat and a starship thief. If anyone wants to see more of it, or all of it, let me know. It's already written, I just haven't posted it yet because it's 63 pages long.
Eris's past it revealed a bit more, as well as a possible threat to her future
I moved back to very very beginning of the vampire story I'm writing in Day Divides the Night.
Think of this story as Cluedo in space. The prologue, as you can read below, will basically introduce you to the sticky situation that will develop later.

Ohh, boy. This is an old one. Me and a friend (who will be known as B'Elanna) wrote it for school in 8th grade.

Part 2: Contemplation. Not a standalone; read chapter 1 first. Now updated with the correct chapter ending, better HTML coding, and correct grammar&spelling! In the grand tradition of It Seemed Like A Good Idea At The Time, our hero misses the obvious warnings and does something stupid.
Space is wast, lonely and boring; unless you have a half crazed, snide, picky AI for a companion.
In this interview from the CS (Confederated Systems) Writer's Project, an old spacer reminisces about his years as a starship tech, and why he got out of the business.
The second in chronological order. NO idea whatsoever of where this one came from.
The first Jian story, don't know where it came from or how I thought it up, but hey, it works.
As always, Earth is grey and dying, and an ark must be sent forth to seed new worlds. This be a sonnet I had to write for English, and I like it, so here it is. I'm not sure the title is exactly appropriate, but I couldn't come up with anything better on short notice.
