And then in the future, everything changes. He’s been through it all, of course-watched humanity rediscover the heavens above them, watched them begin to wonder what’s out there. He cheered with the rest of the world when they landed on the moon, cheered as if he’d found Isla de la Muerta all over again, because there was something new. New treasure, a new horizon. But then they stop going, stop exploring, and he goes back to riding tankers across the rising seas. So he’s surprised when one day he wakes up from a night with his bottle of rum (his truest companion), and hears that there’s colonies on Mars now, and they need ships to supply them. He spends the next decade crafting new identities, learning all he can to qualify for the job, and after several tries (and even more faked deaths-this immortality thing isn’t all it’s cracked up to be in the age of the inerasable digital self) he gets it. The ships go nearly constantly now, the needs of the terraforming project creating an unbroken line of vessels from Mars to Earth and back again. “Show me that horizon,” he whispers to himself, his personal prayer of thanksgiving, each time they leave orbit, because the worlds, the stars are in motion and it’s never the same, with nearly three years for a round trip the ports are always different, even if they keep the old names. And finally one trip something goes wrong with the reactor, they’re too low on power and have to deploy the backups, and Jack (Lucky Jack, they call him, for he survives too many things he shouldn’t but science has yet to accept that maybe some things weren’t old wives’ tales after all) goes out for the spacewalk to bring up the solar panels. And as they rise, geometric patterns black against the sun’s glare, he’s struck by a powerful sense of déjà vu, because it’s all here-wind and sails, a ship beneath his feet and stars above his head, horizon in all directions. He wonders, for a moment, if the reason he’s still here is because the universe wanted a witness, to mourn the end of one age of exploration, and rejoice in the birth of the next.

Thank you for writing this. It made me cry, but oh I am so relieved to see the yearning for the stars.

That shouldn’t have given me as many feels as it did…

Imagine your icon as the protagonist of the last show you watched

The last show I watched was Buffy. 

Kate would be the best Slayer ever.

Book Meme

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!

I’ve been tagged, but I don’t know how to tag, so if the mood strikes you, you can pretend I tagged you, and do a list too. 

1. “Seeing Redd” by Frank Beddor, because it was my favorite book in elementary school.

2. “East” by Edith Pattou, because it was my favorite book in middle school.

3. “Lifting the Sky” by Mackie d’Arge, because I used to keep it by my bed and read it if I ever couldn’t sleep. 

4. All of the Laura Ingles Wilder “Little House” series, because my mother red them to me when I was very small, and they are some of my earliest memories. 

5. “The Mysterious Benedict Society” by Trenton Lee Stewart, because my mother read it to me and my sister, and it sort of represents the bond the three of us have to me. 

6. “Souless” by Gail Carriger, because I’m trash and love supernatural steampunk romance  novels where 50% of the characters are gay. 

7. “Tiger Moon” by Antonia Michaelis, because it taught me about Hinduism and because of the brilliance of the plot lines. 

8. “Journey into Mystery: Fear Itself” written by Kieron Gillen, Penciled by Doug BraithWaite, because it got me into comics. 

9. “The Pride of Baghdad” by Brian K. Vaughan, because it introduced me to the realities of war, while also being a stunning work of fiction and art. 

10. “The Book Thief” by Mark Zusak, because why not, its a brilliant book.
