Title: Phoenix
Author: grey_sw
Characters: Gaius Baltar
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: Miniseries
Prompt: Heat


He barely knows her, this girl. He hasn't bothered to get her name, and probably never will. She's fun in bed, though: eager, sexy, and ridiculously hot in his arms, like sweet fire.

If only he'd been looking in the mirror at the time, he might have realized how hot. Maybe he'd have had time to stop it, to fix things, to save everyone the way he always does in his dreams.

But the red glow came and went, and now it's much too late.

Gaius runs for the hills, trailing worthless secrets, the ashes of his world cooling behind him.



Title: Ambrosia Number Nine
Author: grey_sw
Characters: Boomer, Cavil
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: 4x03, "Ties That Bind"
Prompt: Heat


"Damn, that's hot."

"Huh?"

"That naked dance thing. It's hot. Y'know--" Cavil waves his hand in a gesture that's simultaneously offhanded and obscene.

Boomer blinks. Nobody's ever mentioned it before. "It is?"

"Frak, yes. Hey, I got some ambrosia in my quarters. You want some?"

She's surprised when she says yes; more surprised when they chat first, for hours, talking smack about Six's stupid religion.

None of the other Eights would have slept with him. None of the other Ones would have talked with her. She's not sure what that means, but he snores in his sleep, and Boomer decides she wants it to happen again.



Title: 1010011010
Author: grey_sw
Characters: Scar
Rating: G
Spoilers: 2x15, "Scar"
Prompt: Heat


His world is heat. Engines ever-burning, thermal readings for his enemies, and the searing pain of death and rebirth, over and over and over.

He gets better at it. He kills Them more, and dies less, learning to hide behind asteroids. He sneaks up while They are busy killing his younger, slower, stupider brethren. Then They die, and he is happy. Until They catch him. He dies, sad and angry. Again.

Two of Them, this time, one wiser than the other. He hunts it, ignoring its companion. Almost... no. Death.

But something is different, is missing. No signal.

He dies, happy, at last.

Author's Note: I'm looking for a beta-reader for a longer story, preferably someone who is OK with NC-17 & crackish Cylon pairings (see above). Anybody interested?

I love Scar and I love you for writing about him too, hehe. This is a great drabble, both sad and hopeful at the same time. Scar dies forever but in doing so is finally free of the cycle of pain and vengeance that's consumed him.

And I'd totally beta your fic. I'm also guilty-as-charged of writing crack!Cylon smut fics...

Thanks for the kind comment!

Scar is the best. That's my favorite fighter-pilot episode in the entire show. Scar himself was a wonderful idea, and the plot with Kat and Starbuck is such a blatant homage to old WWII movies and Wing Commander/X-Wing nerdery.

Speaking of which, I really wish somebody would make a decent BSG combat-sim game! I would crawl inside that and never come out... somebody ought to un-box the crew from Origin Systems and get them started on that. :P

And I'd totally beta your fic. I'm also guilty-as-charged of writing crack!Cylon smut fics...

You rule, thank you! I'll try to contact you about it sometime tonight.

Scar was fascinating and I wish he had survived and cropped up in more episodes. Though I've always speculated that the raider Starbuck used in "You Can't Go Home Again" was Scar, which is part of why he was exceptionally angry/angsty/vengeful. And yeah, I grok the WWII reference; Scar reminded me a little bit of the Red Baron.

I'd also love a campy, bloody, Duke Nukem style FPS where you could play as either the cylons or the humans. Complete with a cheesy, horrible death metal soundtrack.

Great job on all of them. I admit I have a spot for fics about Scar, and I really like that you were able to take the strange/scary concept that is Cavil/Boomer and make it believable and kind of fun.

Thank you!

Cavil and Boomer are both scary as hell. I can easily imagine an ending in which they kill everybody else on the show, and then turn on each other.

That said, I can also imagine them both rolling their eyes at Six during the umpteenth sermon in her 27-volume lecture series, The One True God Who Really Loves Babies And Gaius Baltar, But Definitely Not Cavil And/Or Boomer, So There.

It's that balance of horrible/hilarious that makes the Cylons work, I think.

Oh! I love these! They are the sort of point of views that we don't always get, and I adore your Baltar one.

Thank you!

I love Baltar, especially Miniseries/Season One Baltar, when he was completely insane with guilt. You feel for him, and yet he did kind of sort of betray the colonies a little... just a smidge!
