Only the Good Die Young (Pavel | PG13 | 2,528 words): Five times Pavel got annoyed because of his youth. Aw, Pavel! Pavel is adorable here although he wouldn't appreciate my saying so. And it's always fun to read about the Enterprise as friends, even when they get a bit overprotective of Chekov.

"She said Gloria has the hots for me," says Pavel, slightly in awe. "Do you think - "

Hikaru is already shaking his head, even as his chuckles finally wind down. "No, man. She'll walk all over you."

"I can take care of myself!" protests Pavel.

"Yeah, but you shouldn't have to," says Hikaru easily. "That's what we're here for."

On one hand, Pavel is grateful - it is nice to know that the rest of the crew has his back. On the other hand, being protected is not the same as being respected, and what he wants is the latter.

Inevitable (Martha-Tenth Doctor | G | 1,286 words): The Doctor thinks it's time to take Martha home, yes really. This is an fun look at the Doctor and Martha at the beginning of their acquaintance when they're still getting to know each other. Because despite what the Doctor says, there's no way he's taking Martha home just yet, and his thought processes about why she needs to go home are adorably and obviously mistaken.

If she did fancy him, it was really all her own fault (and reason number six million and two that they needed to part ways, pronto). It’s not as if he was encouraging it at all. Not in the least. Not once in the short time they’d known each other; not since the moment they met in the hosp--

Something occured to him and he abruptly turned, grinned at his reflection, and winked.


That was rather endearing. Charming, even.
