TITLE: Speak, Friend, and Enter: Chapter Three: Geeks in Uniform
CHAPTERS: Index
FANDOM: James Cameron's Avatar
CHARACTERS: Norm Spellman, Trudy Chacon, OC
RATING: PG-13
WORDS: 2052
WARNINGS: None.
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.”
