Let's get this party started!


Eliza hummed as she swiped at the bar with a rag. Joe's was busy, as per usual. Setting up a bar just off the deck had been a brilliant idea.

"Another round, champ?" she said to the officer at the bar, who was turned to look at Starbuck. No surprise there.

"Make it a double," he said, pushing his glass across and glancing at her. "Aren't you the school teacher?"

"Not a lot to do at night," she said, pouring out a healthy measure for him. "Especially a civvie like me. Thought working here might broaden my social circle a little."

He laughed. "It might at that. I'm Apollo, by the way."

"Oh, everyone knows who you are," she said. "You're the talk of the deck. Everyone's thrilled you're back."

He raised his eyebrows. "Apparently you have the advantage of me."

"You knew I was the school teacher," she pointed out. "My name is Eliza, by the way."

"Eliza," he said. "I am very pleased to meet you, and very possibly slightly drunk."

"More than possibly, I'd say," she said. "I've topped you up four times."

"Usually I pay attention when that happens with a woman," he said, reaching for his glass and almost failing to get his hand around it.

She smirked. "I think that's the last time."

He pouted. "I hear that a lot lately."

She said nothing, but they both looked at Kara, who pivoted on her heel as if she'd been beckoned and swayed her way up to the bar and set her elbows where the sticky place had been. "'Liza, 'Liza, 'Liza. Why don't you slide another my way?"

Lee pushed his glass over. "She eighty-sixed me. Have this one."

She cut her eyes at him. "Thanks, Lee. Cheers." She knocked back the liquor, pressed the backs of her fingers to her mouth, and then leaned over the bar and kissed Eliza on the cheek. "You're a doll. Friday?"

"Cleared my schedule just for you," Eliza said demurely, but with a wicked glint in her eyes.

"That's what I like to hear," Kara said, rolling her head back. "I've got ten cubits on this game, though."

"Run along," said Eliza affectionately. Kara flashed her a grin and smacked Lee on the arm, sauntering back to the makeshift Pyramid game in the corner, where Anders and Helo and Seelix and Gaeta were waiting.

"I will never understand her," said Lee into the empty glass she'd left.

"Lords," said Eliza, "that would take six lives."

"She's just, you know," said Lee, "I can never stop thinking about her. Even when I want to. And I want to sometimes, because it's awful."

"I know," Eliza said. "She has a way about her."

Lee sighed. "Time to go home to my wife."

"You're a good man, Apollo," Eliza said.

"No'm not," he mumbled, stumbling off the stool. "But I try."

"You do okay," she said. "Considering the circumstances. Enjoy the hangover."

Oh, Lee. You poor man.

Hey, remember that time when we said we'd never, ever post this?

I do remember that time! But everybody needs therapy, apparently.

I AM GLAD YOU ARE POSTING! Yay :-)

We are glad you are glad! Would you like a cameo? ♥

LOL, very much so! But it'll take me, like 130000 more words of reading to get there...

Psh, we can put you in wherever you'll fit. We're always adding bits in.

:D :D :D

I'm so glad you like it! So far! All one scene of it! lol.

Eliza and Lee! Ha, I forgot about those two in the beginning. ;-)

I NEED SPACE EPIC ICONS!

That Eliza! Such a space tart. ;)

We are working on an icon post! SOON. SOON THERE WILL BE ICONS. :D :D

Hey now! I turned him down!

It's not my fault if he wants to solve his problems with kissing.

What icons would you like? YOUR WISH IS MY COMMAND.

Space Epic is EPIC. :D
