kerkevik_2014: (First Black Woman in Space)
 

   Found I could not let February to go by without an attempt to write one fic. So here goes... 

 

TITLE: Finding That Sweet Spot

AUTHOR: kerkevik_2014

FANDOM: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine; set between S3 episodes, 'The Die is Cast' and 'Explorers'

CHARACTERS: Jake Sisko; Captain Kasidy Yates (with mention by implication of Jake's parents)

WORD COUNT: 250

A/N: This is dedicated to hannah with whom I was watching aforesaid 'Explorers' at a ds9_rewatch on Sunday night. I hope the plot bunnies I followed meet with their approval.

 

 

 

I'm telling you it's the league's first Grand Slam!

 

Really hit that sweet spot...” the Bolian not attempting to hide his sarcasm.

 

Jake, back turned to the freighter Captain, almost choked on his root beer; from out of the half-forgotten depths of his memory, he could hear his mother using that exact same tone of voice to his Dad.

 

Dölca, I keep telling you it's Kasidy, or Captain Yates.

 

Jake, felt a tightening in his throat, as Captain Yates even sounded like he remembered his Mom when she was irritated; amused and irritated.

 

The Rigellian woman seemed embarrassed by the rebuke, until the Bolian nudged her; she looked up and saw her Captain smiling. Jake was half-turned by now, and watching as Captain Yates stood up. Finishing her drink she told them she was headed for a luxurious night relaxing in quarters where she could have a proper bath before they departed in the morning.

 

Following some judicious use of Constable Odo's talents, Jake was waiting in the Replimat when Kasidy Yates appeared for breakfast. Striking up a conversation he delighted in noticing she was wearing what appeared to be a baseball jersey under her shirt. He couldn't make out the logo, but he knew he had to find out as much as he could before his Dad got back from Earth.

 

By the time Kasidy Yates left for the Xhosa, Jake was already trying to figure out how to finegle his Dad's first date with the freighter Captain.

 

 

May the Goddess watch over us all,

If anyone is interested I'll be heading over to the ds9_rewatch - http://ds9-rewatch.livejournal.com/297147.html - to do my usual thing of watching both parts of Past Tense as close to a single episode as I can.

Hi,

couple of things today.

1) I've begun the task of re-posting and cataloguing my older fics; starting with one of my first Buffy fanfics here http://kerkevik-2014.livejournal.com/29109.html

2) I thought it woul dbe nice to invite anyone reading this in time to come along to a ds9_rewatch of one of the finest examples of science-fiction on TV; let alone one of the best of all Trek episodes; "Duet" which starts here http://ds9-rewatch.livejournal.com/267869.html in about forty-five minutes. There will be a second chance seven hours later (Midnight for me in the UK) and again on Tuesday (8pm for me).

3) I have started the process of training my brain to my new name; even though I have yet to find the middle name I seek. Kerkevik TehKek; Kerk for short, though I will still always answer to Ray.

That's all for now,

Goddess watch over us all,

Then check this post out.

Just over an hour (that's two hours he's just realised) before we should be getting underway, so don't delay.

kerk.

ps. start time is 1am, not midnight GMT as I implied at first. Sorry.

Saw War Horse, the live cinema broadcast of a London theatre production, in Glasgow today with my friends, Amanda and Ciaran.

And it was a truly wonderful experience, that had me crying AND totally not seeing the people operating the puppet horses. I actually began to think of them as REAL!

STUNNING!

Of course, despite some wonderfully supportive friends I, being a totally born-to-be drama queen had to do something to make things more interesting.

Today's late dramatic twist.

Leaving my laptop on Central Station after hugging Amanda goodbye; didn't even realise it until I was nearly at Ciaran's station on the line.

Gotta say though; even though I have to pay £20 to get it out of lost property tomorrow morning; the rail staff could NOT have been more friendly and helpful.

Top people, who I remember when a suitable occasion presents itself.

A good day, which I shall look forward to ending with a ds9_rewatch in about and hour and a half.

Glad I got over my very real depression of the last couple of days.

Goddess watch over us all,
'tis ok to be Takei,
Ray.
