RATING: PG-13
WORDS: 3169
WARNINGS: None.
A/N: Massive thanks to ceitfianna for beta-ing. While the concept of Romeo and Juliet as Velociraptors is my own, the 'two species, both alike in carnivorisity' bit came from the brain of lordoflorien.
STORY SUMMARY: Information Technician Norm Spellman first met Lance Corporal Trudy Chacon in on a ship in 2134. Twenty years later, Doctor Spellman and Captain Chacon (long-time friends and sometime lovers) are reunited on Pandora. This follows the time between, and what happens after.
CHAPTER EXTRACT: “Romeo and Juliet as...Velociraptors.”

“Wait, what?” Trudy says, laughing as she twists around in her seat. “Oh, man, seriously?”

“No, no, it works, see? 'Two species, both alike in carnivorisity-”

“Norm! No, stop it,” she says, pressing her hands to her eyes as she laughs. But Norm is on a roll – and he loves the way she laughs.

“-in fair dystopia where we lay our scene. From ancient blood re-fused to new...mutant-y.” Okay, so, the roll rapidly rolled out.

CHAPTER EXTRACT: “Well,” she says, and she smirks, her smile crooked and pleased all at once. “I've got a few ideas of what we could do.”

He eyes her, sensing the laughter behind her expression. “Something nefarious?” he asks, a smile tugging at his own mouth.

“Scandalous even,” Chacon says. “Definitely means we have to be on first-name basis.”

“Well, gee, I don't know,” he says, and she grins at him. “Norm,” he says then, grinning back and offering her his hand.

“Trudy.”

A/N: Massive thanks to ceitfianna for beta-ing, and lordoflorien for cheerleading. The source of (my knowledge of) the quirks of the Ancient Greek and Russian colour-language is the excellent book Through the Language Glass: Why The World Looks Different in Other Languages, by Guy Deutscher.
STORY SUMMARY: Information Technician Norm Spellman first met Lance Corporal Trudy Chacon in on a ship in 2134. Twenty years later, Doctor Spellman and Captain Chacon (long-time friends and sometime lovers) are reunited on Pandora. This follows the time between, and what happens after.
CHAPTER EXTRACT: “You forgot,” he says, more than a little entertained by her monologue, “to mention ghosts.”

“Mmm, true. But they freak me out.”

Norm blinks. “So, what, cannibalistic corpses don't scare you, but ghosts do?”

Chacon grins. Or at least, she bares her teeth, which a number of species regard as a gesture of defiance instead of joy. It's a stance he can't really argue with. “Can't shoot ghosts. Can shoot zombies.”

He laughs softly. “Okay, that's fair.” He thinks for a moment. “Although, I think you can shoot ghosts with rock-salt.”

EXTRACT: Norm smiles back and answers, “Hey. Didn't expect to see you here.”

Chacon raises her eyebrows slightly, but she's still smiling. “Yeah, well. My copy of Lord of the Rings got completely busted during a pulse bomb. I'm borrowing.”

“Like a pirate?”

There is a beat of silence, and her smile deepens into a smirk on one side, dimple flashing into view. “I'm gonna plead the Fifth on that one.”

CHARACTERS: Norm Spellman, OCs
RATING: PG-13
WORDS: 1845
WARNINGS: None.
A/N: Contains extracts from The Fellowship of the Ring, by JRR Tolkien. And massive thanks to ceitfianna and the_croupier for beta-ing, and lordolorien for cheerleading.
STORY SUMMARY: Information Technician Norm Spellman first met Lance Corporal Trudy Chacon in on a ship in 2134. Twenty years later, Doctor Spellman and Captain Chacon (long-time friends and sometime lovers) are reunited on Pandora. This follows the time between, and what happens after.
EXTRACT: ...his mother seems to take Pandora's biota as a personal insult. On more than one occasion, Norm has thought that if he hears anyone else argue about the function of Pandoran bioluminescence, or allude to the Cambrian Explosion to explain different body-plans, or debate whether the Na'vi are symbiotic parasites from another planet, he is going to kill someone. Even if Professor Eugenie Spellman is an evolutionary biologist, her ire at Pandora's apparent lack of 'genuine originality' seems somewhat excessive.

EXTRACT: You're good at running. Better then Tommy. Way better than Tommy. You can live with that.
A/N: I've always struggled a bit with Jake's character, but I realized a couple months ago that a lot of his reactions could make sense if he has ADHD (I came to this idea as I have ADD myself). I sat down to type a short little ficlet, and then when I looked up it was several hours later, and I had over 3000 words. So, I thought I might share.
Title comes from the Creedence Clearwater song of the same name.
