starlady: Kermit the Frog, at Yuletide (yuletide)
[personal profile] starlady
For Yuletide, I got not one but three Space Vehicles fics! Given that I also had a copy of Europa Report under the tree (which all of you should see, yes you should, because it's amazing), it's a very Space Exploration Christmas this year.

Escapist (1554 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Space Vehicles
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Voyager 2 (Space Vehicles)
Additional Tags: Science, IN SPACE!, Loneliness, Anthropomorphic
Summary: T+36 years and 125 days.

Voyager 2 drifts in space, even as her body only moves in one direction, grateful that she still has a working chronometer, grateful that a sense of time is as necessary to the instrumentation as it is to Voyager's own sense of self.

These two are in the Yuletide collection proper. "Paper Dreams" is a human POV on Voyager (which I confess I never thought about), while "Escapist" has the spacecraft contemplating her own existence, and they are both lovely.

Summary:
It's not like there's a line painted in the empty
saying, "Last exit for the Oort Cloud. Time to go."


This one is from Yuletide Madness, and it's a poem!

I never know exactly what to expect from Yuletide, but all three of these fics were just what I wanted, and I love all of them. Thank you, Yuletide writers! You've given me a very happy Yuletide indeed.
