TRUST ME


“That’s not the TARDIS!” Amy Pond shouted as they approached the shiny little camper.

“But we’re in America now,” the Doctor said. “They don’t travel around in blue Police boxes! They like something shinier, more snazzy!” He was wiggly with excitement as only this Doctor could be.

“Looks more like a sardine tin to me,” Rory chimed in.

The Doctor looked exasperated for a minute, then said, “Go on in with you! You’ll see!”

Slowly they opened the door and stepped inside…

The TARDIS! All bigger on the inside and everything.

“How?” Amy asked.

“Trust me, Amy. I’m the Doctor!”

THE MADMAN ON THE MOUNTAIN


“Are you nuts?” Sean’s eyes blazed with fear and anger, his accent heavy as it often was when he was upset. “I’m not gonna kill myself fer a bit of a thrill!”

Viggo shrugged and began to put on the harness, not saying a word.

“I didn’t come to Switzerland to splatter myself all over the mountains,” Sean continued.

Viggo began to put the other harness on Sean, who continued to complain loudly, but did nothing to stop him. When all was done, Viggo took Sean’s hand, grinned at him and said one word.

“Ready?”

“Hell no!”

They jumped together.

ENDLESS SANDS


“That’s a lot of sand, Vig. It’ll take forever to cross it.” Sean saw the sand spread endlessly before him.

“We’ll make it. We’re two pretty tough old guys.”

You’re the tough old guy! Sand in my arsecrack don’t sound much fun to me.”

Viggo knew he was right. They both did things for one another. It was just what you did when you loved a person. But this time, it was different.

“Give me the glasses then.”

Sean removed the VR glasses and handed them to Viggo.

“All better?” Viggo asked.

Sean had the grace to blush.

Viggo laughed.

THE LAKE


Dean looked out at the small lake. The cabins were kinda small and the water was a bit brownish but it seemed like paradise to a boy who lived in motel rooms and watched his kid brother while their dad was always gone.

Little Sammy tugged on his arm. “Can we go swimming, Dean? Can we?.”

He meant to say no and tell Sammy to get back in the car, but those eyes were so hopeful, so eager.

“Sure, Sammy. Get your shorts on.”

We can do this before Dad gets back, he thought as Sammy waded into the lake.

Done Too Soon

*
And each one there
Has one thing shared:
They have sweated beneath the same sun,
Looked up in wonder at the same moon,
And wept when it was all done
For being? Done too soon,
For being? Done too soon.
For being? Done.

~~ Neil Diamond
*
John Sheridan knew his time was up.

He found that knowing that it would come did not make it any easier. He had tried to finish it all, to make sure everything was done and plans were made but –

He found out that the twenty years were not enough. A lifetime or even five lifetimes would not be enough to do all he needed, wanted to do. Not enough to love Delenn, David as much as he wanted to.

He’d traded all those tomorrows a long time ago, knowing that this day would eventually come.

It was done too soon.

THE ROAD LESS TRAVELED

“It’s just like the Frost poem. Which one should we take?” Dean asked Sam.

“The Frost poem? You know a poem?”

Dean recited,
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

I’m not a rube, you know.”

“Yes, you are. How do you know the poem?”

“I read it in a poetry book,” Dean said very quietly, almost whispering.

“What did you say?” Sam pressed.

“A poetry book! A book of poems! A damned poetry book! There! Are you satisfied?”

Sam howled with laughter. “God, yes!”

PROOF

“Let’s stop!” Ian Malcolm said to Alan from the passenger seat.

“Are you nuts? We have to get to a meeting. Besides, we’ve seen the real thing.” Something about Ian always made Alan grumpy.

“Look at them! They’re like gods all in white!”

Alan found himself stopping, looking at the giant dinosaurs. He had to admit they had a certain appeal, so big and bright. They got out and Ian handed his phone to a young woman who was looking at the Apatosaurus.

“Take our picture!”

She did and he smiled at Grant. “Now we can prove we’ve seen dinosaurs.”

Jason’s Gift

Jason Ironheart had seen the ‘sleeper’ inside Talia’s mind, had known exactly what it was. But he’d made a choice. He left it alone. He chose instead to give her a gift, a small gift that let her know he still loved her without letting the other know he saw it.

When he became – what he became, none of those things mattered anymore and at the same time, he understood how much they did matter.

As a being of pure light, he knew how much a touch meant, a kind word to a single being. He hoped she remembered him.

The Cost

“We were fooled by them.”

Susan Ivanova, now retired from the Rangers, poured herself a cup of coffee.

“They convinced us all that they were right and the Shadows were wrong. Many good people died because they’d rather let us fight instead of doing it themselves.”

She stared at a spot on the wall for a moment.

“We lost so much, so many good people. I lost everything. But that was my fault. Not the Vorlons nor the Shadows. I was afraid. I am still shamed by his sacrifice. Do you think you can bring him back someday, Stephen?”

“Yes.”

Worse than Hell Itself

Stephen woke to a horrible noise. For a moment he thought he’d passed out in Down Below. Then he remembered he’d given up stims, had finally gotten himself clean and sober.

What the hell was that horrid sound?

He listened more carefully as he took stock of where he was. He was in a lumpy bed somewhere with artificial light. Mars Dome. He was in some seedy motel on Mars.

I am the very model of a modern Major-General,
I’ve information animal, vegetable and mineral…


It was worse than drugs. Or drunkenness. Or even hell itself.

Marcus was singing again.

EXPENDABLE

He knew she would never love him, had known from the start, but Marcus could not stop himself from loving her. She was brave and strong. Braver and stronger than he would ever be. Like his brother.

That was why he did it, he told himself. The galaxy needed Ivanova much more than it needed him. He was a bitter soul who had lost everything; he was expendable. His brother had not been, but he’d not been able to save him.

Susan he could save.

Soon he could finally rest and find out if the end really was the end…

SNOWPOCALYPSE!

He hates all the snow and ice but not me. I love it. We are stuck in the cabin, just the two of us, for days on end. We eat, we play cards and we snuggle.

And he whines. He needs to get back to work. He needs to call his agent. He needs cookies. He wants some cigarettes. Some beer.

I make soups from stuff in the cabinets and in the freezer. We play in the snow and drink cocoa.

Sometimes I call him a whiny little girl. And we wrestle, which ends well. Always.

Sean is the best!

Dear diary,

He must never know how I feel. I’ve fought it since the first time I saw him. He’s not what I want or need. The fight comes first. Always. So many people have died to get us as far as we are. I have no right. None at all.

I feel almost giddy when I see the Falcon, that silly hunk of junk. I tell myself there will be time someday for us, for me to fall in love with Han Solo.

In my heart I know it will never be. Leia loves him as well.

Always,
Luke

Sean knew that Viggo waited somewhere for him, but all the cabins looked so much alike.

Bloody Vig and his love of the woods! Why couldn’t they meet in some posh hotel with thick robes and five star room service? Instead they’d meet here in the middle of nowhere and freeze their arses off while they ate tough, gamy food that Vig had killed himself. Yuck!

The snow was getting deeper but the four-wheel-drive was working perfectly.

Where the hell was he?

They he saw it, one single red, glass ornament hung on a tree limb. It was worth everything!

“What did you do for Christmas when you were a kid?” Tony asked Steve as they sat in front of the fire.

“Times were hard. I got an apple and maybe an orange. Maybe a new pair of shoes or a shirt. What about you?”

“Everything. After my mom died, I got even more but Dad was off skiing or something. Just not with me.”

“My mom was there until she died. I don’t remember my dad.”

Tony put an arm around Steve and pulled him a little closer. “Good thing we’ve got one another then, isn’t it?”

“Oh yes.”

“Hey, I fly with electronic wings. Don’t you think I can ride a carnival ride without puking?”

She shrugged.

Sam ate cotton candy and a greasy hamburger, a coke and topped it off with a candies apple. An hour later, he was in the men’s room, leaving his lunch in the bowl. Natasha ate a small ice cream.

Steve and Bucky waited outside.

“Where’s Nat?” Sam asked when he came out.

Steve grinned. “Bathroom, sick like you.”

Sam howled with laughter.

They arrived at Coney Island. It looked nothing like they remembered. There were still amusements though, ferris wheels and the like. Bucky wanted this for him and Steve, just two Brooklyn boys.

The other car pulled up and its occupants got out.

“We wanted to come, too,” Sam shouted as Natasha came around the car.

DOL GULDUR

Legolas hated that dark stronghold with all his being. He knew that the Necromancer and his dark minions were responsible for the spiders and the growing cancer around his once green and beautiful homeland.

He sometimes rode out from his father’s home and watched as fires burned deep in the towers at Dol Guldur.

Who was there? What evil did they conjure in the dead of night? What force could make spiders who talked? Black squirrels?

His father would not speak of the residents of Dol Guldur, saying only that evil would one day be vanquished.

Legolas surely hoped so.

BILBO IN THE DUNGEON

Bilbo wandered around in the cellars of King Thranduil’s Palace. He found storerooms and wine cellars, apples and potatoes along with barrels of wine and ale. But the cellars went deeper and they were darker, with the sound of rats scratching the floors as they scurried along and other things, bigger things moving about in the darkness.

He looked for a way out. He needed to save his companions. He might be a burglar but he wasn’t a very brave one.

At the end of one such tunnel, he saw a light and the river beyond.

He could save them!

THE MONSTER BENEATH

Frodo saw what no one else did.

When Boromir followed him, he saw a monster beneath the man’s face, saw the lust for the Ring in all its ugliness. He knew in that moment what Bilbo had felt when he saw the Ring in Frodo’s possession. He knew what it did to all who touched it.

He saw the beast as Boromir talked to him, asking him questions as a distraction while his eyes stayed on the Ring. He saw the evil.

He put his hand on the chain and let it slide down to touch the Ring. The Precious.
