SO Cabin Fever remains very similar in most ways but also changed in some others and agh I just want to write more of it or for it to be real either of the above
not that i have actually done a great deal but here is the little bit i have done because i would like to share it with you guys for hey also happy things are happening purposes
from the tags on the tumblr post this originally happened upon, because i don't feel up to cleaning up the information and presenting it in a coherent fashion right now:
#also starring: #sarah shahi as the ship #alona tal as archie's younger sister (from another father) #a mechanic who falls in love with the ship #michael shanks as a super important revolutionary #originally he was the ciara analogue but i looked at it and went nah #i like it better with these two ladies #i'm not sure who but two awesome ladies as codependent sisters #jimmy jean-louis as a wisecracking hacker #part of me misses the specific james/liam iteration of the relationship between the two leads #but i actually think the dynamic between shay and ciara while similar some ways #will be awesomer in others #james mcavoy as one of the top security officers and a total sweetheart #natalie morales as the ship's doctor #OTHER PEOPLE #awesome people #revolutionaries everywhere! #actually revolution is technically only the first season #i have a four season layout #season 1: revolution #season 2: reconstruction/what the hell why are we being attacked by aliens #season 3: salvation in unexpected forms #season 4: godkillers #hi #i have a lot of feelings about this story
and written for meto:
Lethe loves space. It’s the only thing bigger than her, her body of a ship her ship of a body pulled together by metal struts and pins that by themselves run bigger than any small human body. Space is always there, pushing back against her, stretching out into infinity.
When she is in her small human body she finds it terrifying, though, wonders how the others can stand in the observation rooms and watch it go past. They are so small, pinned against the endless dark. How can they not see that her metal body is the only thing separating them from an end that is so permanent she does not know words for it?
“We do know,” Mary says when she asks, palm spread against the glass of the window, watching the stars. “And of course we’re scared. But it’s beautiful.”
“Even when you are this small?” Lethe asks, still standing well away from the window. (That would make no difference, should this structural support give. She would be tossed out into the emptiness and there would be no return.)
“Especially when we are this small.” The smile on Mary’s face is like the stars themselves. Lethe does not know how else to categorize it.
meto i am totally writing you more things as soon as finals are doooone i am also super open to the idea of prompts or whatever because i want to do exploring in this and sort out the changes and how they work over spring break yes This entry was originally posted at Dreamwidth.
