Well, they're not totally deleted scenes such as scenes that happened a bit after the story, and they both started life as random email snippets for [ profile] boosette, but they've been cleaned up a bit and here they are.

Title: Alien . . . Sex . . . Mold?
Summary: One tells Pike about recent events on the Yorktown.
Pairing: Pike/One
Rating: PG-13
Content Advisory: Pike drops an f-bomb, quoting.
Word Count: 700
Notes: This story probably won't make sense unless you know what happened in Starting Over, and I'm not sure I can gloss it succinctly. Suffice it to say that the Yorktown encounters, well, alien sex mold. And also, this fills the "sex: pollen, spores, or other intoxicants" square on my PikeOne bingo card. Thanks to [ profile] boosette, who wanted to know what it was that One would have said to Pike if she would have called him while under the influence.

Number One runs into her quarters a few minutes later than she wants. )


Title: Hiding in the Supply Closet
Summary: Ally meets Christine Chapel for the first time.
Characters: Christine Chapel, Ally Jarvis, Dana Cathcart
Rating: PG
Content Advisory: Nothing in particular.
Word Count: 800
Notes: Following about 3 years after Starting Over. Pretty much all you need to know is that Ally is scared to death of authority figures, primarily Number One.

Christine Chapel loved being Head Nurse. )

Title: Starting Over
Author: [ profile] circ_bamboo
Artist: [ profile] weaselett
Beta: (and extra artist) [ profile] boosette
Series: ST:XI
Character/Pairing(s): Ally Jarvis/Dana Cathcart (both original characters); significant appearances by Dr. Philip Boyce, Lt. Commander Caitlin Barry, and Capts. Pike and Number One.
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 18,698
Content Advisory: Sex. Also attempted dub-con while under the influence of a chemical; PM me if you need more details.
Summary: Ally Jarvis is a medic aboard the USS Yorktown under Captain Pike and XO Number One; however, Captain Pike has just been given an offer he can't refuse, and he and a significant portion of the crew are staying on earth. Ally would sell her soul to get aboard the Enterprise, but now-Captain Number One thinks she's incompetent. (She may be right.) Can Ally manage to be promoted, such that Pike will consider taking her on when he gets the Enterprise? Also, there's this new nurse named Dana who's giving very mixed signals . . .

Notes: For the [ profile] oc_bigbang -- that is, original characters, not The O.C. This is sort of a sequel to Claimed and its spin-off, Consolation Prize. Thanks so much to everyone linked above.

When you see this, post an excerpt from as many random works-in-progress as you can find lying around. Who knows? Maybe inspiration will burst forth and do something, um, inspiration-y.

Hahaha. Right.

Goin' through the WIP bucket . . . This is only the stuff that's actually been started. (Or finished, in a few cases.)

17,916 words (so my 18K estimate was pretty accurate), 1 day early.

Okay, now time to work on [ profile] polybigbang.
circ_bamboo: (Default)
I hit 15K sometime yesterday and am in the middle of the second-to-last scene? Maybe. Somewhere around there. There's at least one more scene.

Two big bangs down, maybe one to go? YAY!

(also my artist for stbb is awesome and shares my views re: pike in period clothing. i will say no more.)

. . . ugh.

I am so. frickin'. tired. I may have to revise my word count estimates to take into account the issues of being back at [DayJob].

. . . zzzzzzzz . . .

The good news is that I don't hate what I already have yet. The bad news is that I'm still at 8300 words and I'm not sure I'll be adding any.

7500 words. Halfway done by wordcount; um, past exposition by story arc.

(Note to self: passively seek out beta before deadline.) Got one, thanks.

ETA: final count on the day: 8300. Roughly eight scenes left to write. And, um. There might not end up being sex? I am confused.

Dear Dr. Boyce,

I mean, I like you and all, but when did you decide you wanted to win Best Supporting Character for the Epic Ally/Dana Backstory?

Confusedly yours,


Dear Dana,

I'd really like it if you could get onscreen, oh, in the next few thousand words, so I can have this story not blossom out of control. Y'know. Please.

Desperately yours,


Dear Cait,

I, um. I don't understand you in this story. Calm down, pls.

Annoyedly yours,


Dear Pike,

Sorry. You'll get to be onscreen for more than two paragraphs at some point. I promise.

Apologetically yours,


N.B. Construct, et al.
