Because Shipper Nation is a bit dead, and we need to liven things up!  
Welcome to the Pilot!fic round robin! One or two sentences per comment. Pimp it out! Invite your friends! Let's see what kind of collective mayhem we can get these two crazy kids into!


ETA: Round Robin fic #1: So Much for Keeping A Secret
Round Robin fic #2: The Rumor

First sentence:


"For frak's sake, what now?" Lee grumbled, flinging an arm over his eyes to block the light as Kara yanked back the curtain of his rack and plunked herself down on the edge.

"We have a problem," Kara began, ignoring the fact that he was still half asleep.

"Don't we always?" Lee sighed, lifting his arm just enough to squint at her.

Kara ignored him and went on. "Have you heard the newest rumors?"

"I went down on Racetrack in the showers? Was I any good?" Kara asked with a smirk.

Lee just rolled his eyes. "You actually woke me up for this?"

"No... not this," she began hesitatly, chewing on the edge of her lip. "It's about what happened a few years ago.... at the academy," she finished quietly.

She didn't have to say anymore; Lee knew exactly what she was talking about. Four years, six months and twenty-three days later and he could still remember every single second.

(I have a feeling this round robin is going to turn into several different stories lol)
uberscribbler on January 21st, 2010 07:34 pm (UTC)
"Um, Showboat. For one." Kara braced involuntarily as Lee clenched his teeth, shoulders and fists.

"More like who isn't!" Kara hissed. "I overheard Hot Dog and Kat talking about it, and if they know, everyone knows."

Hope I'm not totally ruining the story, I'm still a relatively new writer.

Thought I'd compile this so that it is easier for people to read so that hopefully we have more people participate. :)

The story so far:

"For frak's sake, what now?" Lee grumbled, flinging an arm over his eyes to block the light as Kara yanked back the curtain of his rack and plunked herself down on the edge.

"We have a problem," Kara began, ignoring the fact that he was still half asleep.

"Don't we always?" Lee sighed, lifting his arm just enough to squint at her.

Kara ignored him and went on. "Have you heard the newest rumors?"

"The ones about the President having a demigod love child, or about you going down on Racetrack in the showers, or me 'spearing' Helo with my 'arrow'?

"I went down on Racetrack in the showers? Was I any good?" Kara asked with a smirk.

Lee just rolled his eyes. "You actually woke me up for this?"

"No... not this," she began hesitatly, chewing on the edge of her lip. "It's about what happened a few years ago.... at the academy," she finished quietly.

She didn't have to say anymore; Lee knew exactly what she was talking about. Four years, six months and twenty-three days later and he could still remember every single second.

"Who's been talking about that?" Lee asked, sitting up finally so he could drop his voice to a whisper.

"More like who isn't!" Kara hissed. "I overheard Hot Dog and Kat talking about it, and if they know, everyone knows."

"I'm not even going to ask how those two found out," Lee sighed. "Have they gone into any *detail*? The sort that..."

"The, um, tattoo was mentioned." Kara looked especially aggrieved at this point.

"The tattoo?" Lee sputtered. "Frak!"

"Wait," he hissed, a burst of insane optimism hitting him. "*Both* of them?"

"At least one of them, Lee. You know, you can't even see mine, unless, well, you know. It's on my inner thigh, for frak's sake!"

"And just how many here have gotten a look at your inner thigh, Kara?" Lee questioned. "I mean, since that night?"

"I don't know the exact number offhand, but I'm sure I wrote it down in my diary," Kara snapped, pissed at what he was insinuating.

Lee gasped in horror. "You keep a diary?!?"

He shook his head clear and said "Okay, okay. Never mind. Did they get the, um, you know...description right?"

"I don't know, Lee. Why don't you take a look." Her tone was annoyed.

"Trust me, Kara, I *know* what it looks like." He'd been dreaming of the damned thing at regular intervals over the last several years. "I just want to confirme *they* don't know everything."

"You're sure you don't need a reminder, Apollo?" She trailed a finger down his chest and licked her lips.

"Um before I answer..." Kara drawled. "Where'd you get yours?"

"Kara..."

"*Remind* me, Lee," she breathed into his ear.

Lee stared at her for a moment. He hooked his thumbs into his shorts and pulled them down on one side, revealing black ink.

Kara traced the dark outline, her fingers were close and dangerous.

"I forgot..." she whispered, sounding almost reverent in the saying. "Just how frakking...*ugly*...that design is."

Lee burst out laughing, "I know, Kara. It really is. We were young, you know?"

a sinner & a cynic: BSG - Apollo/Starbuck Angstcynicalshadows on January 24th, 2010 06:54 pm (UTC)
"Now, what's this rumor, anyway?" He asked, batting her hand away.

"The rumor is that it didn't end there." She gave him a significant look.

Lee's mouth formed a little O. "It almost didn't end there." He held her eyes.

She cocks a brow, a challenge in her eyes. "And who's fault was that, Captain?"

Lee feigns shock. "And somehow it didn't matter that you'd drunk enough ambrosia to kill a caprican pony?"

"You still jealous that I can hold my liquor better than you?" she asks with a mischievous wink. "But seriously, Apollo, blame me all you want because we both know who really started things that night."

Lee sighed and shook his head. "Look, do we actually, really need to deal with this at all?" His voice took on a pleading tone. "Can't we ignore it and just let it go away?"

"Aww! Is little Leland afraid to take on a little gossip?" Kara all but coos at him.

That was it. He was done. Lee had reached the end of his patience.

She can tell the second she's pushed him too far. It's in the set of his jaw and the hardness around his eyes. The CAG is so about to pull rank.

"Frak, Kara" Lee faultered. "Why is it that you always feel the need to push my buttons!?" "You sure like opening up old wounds don't you?"

Before she could utter a response she heard someone entering the bunkroom. Lee glanced toward the door, clearly the discussion was over. "Lt. Thrace, didn't Chief Tyrol need you for viper repairs or something? Dismissed."

THE NEXT DAY:

Lee figured that, before he even tried to talk to Kara again, he'd better get a clear idea about these "rumors" that had her so aflutter. At least that way he'd know how much everyone else knew (or *thought* they knew), and could better formulate a plan from there.

Unfortunately, no-one seemed in a talkative mood that morning.

Whenever he entered a room, all conversation seemed to abruptly halt. That was not a good sign. Maybe Kara was right to be worried.

Unfortunately, that sudden and uncomfortable silence was making it impossible for him to chase down the exact content of these 'rumors'. Without knowing that, Lee was flying blind with Kara (who was doubtless still pissed with him).

Speaking of whom...

Kara enters the mess and hesitates for only a fraction of a second before she breezes past him without a word, like he isn't standing there holding his breakfast tray with a welcoming smile on his face.

Yeah, she was definitely still pissed. Frak.

Well, that didn't work- Lee thought to himself.

Gods dammit, this dance had to stop and they had to talk, if only there was a way he could get Kara alone.

As if on cue, Lee heard the fimiliar siren and Gaeta's booming voice with the announcement of 'Action Stations' being called.

Personal problems would have to wait, survival came first.

He ditches his tray and takes off at a run and it only takes a couple seconds before Kara is sprinting at his side.

"Who needs breakfast when there are toasters to be shot, right Apollo?" she grins in full Starbuck mode when he glances at her out of the corner of his eye.

The battle, unfortunately, doesn't last that long. A small swarm of Raiders escorting a couple Heavies trying to crash onto 'Galactica'; just another half-assed boarding attack. The toasters must have been running short on tactics.

Needless to say, between Apollo and Starbuck, it was over quickly. Not that the rest of the pilots didn't contribute, but Starbuck was a force of nature that morning. A Fury of legend, and she tore through Raiders without hesitation or error. But the fact none of her kills included any trademark banter or cat-calls made the whole thing all the more unnerving.

Ironically, it was only when they landed that Lee got his first inkling of what had Kara so upset. He was passing Hot Dog's plan when he overhead Kat's voice saying "You sure she's got him tagged?"

"Totally," Kat smirks. "I hear that he's got 'Property of Starbuck' inked on him somewhere that would be pretty hard to miss if you were about to frak. And get this! She's got one too! They like match."

"So...why ain't we seen it before?" Trust Costanza to prove, once again, he wasn't nearly as dense as he pretended.

"I don't know," Kat admits, and Lee cannot help but let out a small sigh of relief. His reprieve is short lived however because the next words out of her mouth are worse than the truth. "Maybe you can only see it when he's at full salute."

Okay if we start a new story now?
I think "Keeping a Secret" has run its course.

Shall we start again?

I am totally game to start again. This was really fun.
