BSG: A Hierodule's Blessing

Title: A Hierodule's Blessing
Author: grey_sw, greyfic@gmail.com
Pairing(s)/Character: Laura/Elosha
Summary: Before Kobol, Laura and Elosha seek Aphrodite's favor.
Rating & Warnings: NC-17, sexual content

Author's Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] trialia in the Spring 2009 [livejournal.com profile] bsgficexchange.
This takes place before Laura's mission to Kobol in Season 2. Spoilers through "The Farm"; very mild spoiler for "Lay Down Your Burdens, Part I". The Hierodules were real people -- they were Aphrodite's sacred temple prostitutes in ancient Greece -- but the ritual here is my own invention. Unfortunately, nobody knows exactly what the Hierodules actually did. Other than frak, that is! In the same spirit, I hope you enjoy this story!

BSG: Fresh Start, Acceptable Losses

Title: Fresh Start
Author: grey_sw
Characters: Baltar
Rating: G
Spoilers: 4x20, "Daybreak, Part II"
Prompt: Goodbyes


It's going to be harder than he'd thought. Almost impossible, really. They have no seed, no tools, no horses, not even a cat to chase the rats away. They'll be lucky if they manage a half-decent garden, much less a farm.

Still, Gaius Baltar is happy. Caprica is with him; they will live beneath the sun and stars, and soon they'll start working on a home. They probably won't starve to death, anyway.

He sighs. He feels strangely new, as though there's another Gaius, somewhere, who never went on that mission. But all that's left to say to him is: goodbye.


Title: Acceptable Losses
Author: grey_sw
Characters: Leoben, Ellen
Rating: G
Spoilers: 4x20, "Daybreak, Part II"
Prompt: Goodbyes


The Colonials and Cylons have taken to building rock cairns for the dead, like a Memorial Wall which spreads across the surface of their new planet.

Ellen watches a couple of Twos as they carry their rocks, stacking them in four piles along the edge of the hardscrabble settlement.

"Who are they for?" she asks.

"D'Anna," the first Two says. "And Simon, Cavil, and Doral."

"But... they tried to kill you!" Ellen says.

"We killed them in return. They're still our brothers. We miss them."

She frowns. "I suppose so."

"They're your sons, too. Won't you help us?"

Ellen shakes her head, and turns away.

Title: The Most Important Mission
Author: grey_sw
Characters: Cavil, Doral
Rating: G
Spoilers: 4x18, "Islanded In A Stream Of Stars"
Prompt: Lies


"So what's this mission you've got for us?" Doral asked.

Cavil glanced away. "Oh, uh, it's nothin' difficult. But it's vital to the Plan, y'see."

The other Doral grinned. A bombing, maybe. That'd be fun!

"It's just in here. Mission... parameters are up to personal discretion."

Doral looked into the room; behind the security panel, Hera and Cavil's Eight were playing with crayons.

"Wait, what?!"

"You can handle it, I'm sure," Cavil said dryly. "You know pattycake, dontcha? Or the Itsy Bitsy Spider?"

"Er..."

"C'mon, Eight, let's get some dinner. Good luck, Aaron!"

Hera giggled. The Dorals glanced at each other.

"Um, I'm a little teapot, short and... stout?"

BSG: Obviously 5 Believers

Title: Obviously 5 Believers
Author: grey_sw
Characters: The Final Five
Rating: PG
Spoilers: 4x17, "Someone To Watch Over Me"
Prompt: Bob Dylan Song Titles


Galen prays, surrounded by Baltar's groupies, but he's not sure who he's praying to. Is it Zeus? Apollo? The One True God? No matter. He can't stop. I'm so sorry, Athena.

Saul drinks. He smokes. He remembers open eyes, like his; he cries in Bill's arms.

Tory puts her hands in the datafont, dreaming of a new home. This, she thinks, is power.

Ellen could pray. She could ask God to forgive Cavil, to bring him back to the fold. But she won't, because after everything, she's beginning to realize that she never really wanted to.

Sam wants to, but he no longer can.

BSG: Taken, Cleaning Crew

Title: Taken
Author: grey_sw
Characters: Caprica Six
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: 4x16, "Deadlock"
Prompt: Empty


Cottle had taken her Liam.

He'd been gentle, had held her hand and told her: I'm so sorry, Caprica.

Then he put her to sleep for a while. When she woke up, she was empty and sore.

She screamed and fought. Finally they tied her down. A while later, they put her back to sleep.

When she woke again, her Gaius was there, warm eyes full of compassion.

"Don't cry, dear," he told her, squeezing her hand, as if he were really there.

"Don't cry. We'll get our baby, and we'll take her to the Opera House together, and all will be well again."


Title: Cleaning Crew
Author: grey_sw
Characters: Simon
Rating: G
Spoilers: 4x09, "The Hub"
Prompt: Empty


After the Hub was destroyed, the bodies on the Resurrection Ship began to rot. The Ones, Fours, and Fives voted to dispose of them. The Simons and Dorals spent three days helping the Centurions airlock the bodies, while the Cavils drained and mopped each tub.

At first, Simon was uncomfortable with it. The bodies were limp and heavy in his arms; hundreds of brothers who didn't live, who would not live. Fours, like him, but dead, forever.

By the time they were finished, he didn't care anymore. He couldn't.

They left the Resurrection Ship as-is, endless rows of empty tubs.

BSG: Gunny, Games

Title: Gunny
Author: grey_sw
Characters: GySgt Erin Mathias
Rating: PG
Spoilers: 3x03, "Exodus I"
Prompt: Guns


Gunny. That's her rank, and it's what she is. Ever since childhood, Gunnery Sergeant Erin Mathias has loved to shoot.

When she was small, she and her sister played Colonials and Centurions with toy rifles (Kelly was always the Cylon, because Erin said so). When they were older, they'd go to the quarry and hunt daggits. And when Erin enlisted in the Colonial Marines, at 17, she was already the best shot in her squad.

Kelly must've died on Caprica, like everyone else.

But Gunny's alive, and today she bagged a real Centurion, on a world called New Caprica, for her sister.


Title: Games
Author: grey_sw
Characters: Centurions
Rating: G
Spoilers: 3x01, "Occupation"
Prompt: Guns


Late at night, when they are supposed to be standing guard over the humans, sometimes the Centurions play.

They have very little with which to play -- and they have to be very quiet because it's a secret, and they are not quiet if they move much! -- so each of them takes a round out of its gun-arm and spins it in its other hand, carefully, like a top. Whoever spins it the prettiest wins... but they are all so very pretty no one can choose, so everybody wins! It's a nice game.

Daylight gun games are not so nice.

Characters: Galen Tyrol
Rating: G
Spoilers: 4x12, "A Disquiet Follows My Soul"; 4x14, "Blood On The Scales"
Prompt: Identity


"Maybe you'd like a chart to keep it all straight?"

Once, Galen would've hated the XO for that. But they fought together on New Caprica, and they shared a secret song, and now Galen understands. Tigh didn't say it just to be an ass: to him, there is only one side.

Galen envies that surety. He's not sure who he is now. He is Cylon; he is Colonial. He doesn't know how to honor both.

Suddenly, one of the groupies runs to Baltar, panicking. "Mutiny!" she cries. "Mutiny in the Hangar Bay!"

And just like that, Galen doesn't need a chart anymore.

BSG: Phoenix, Ambrosia Number Nine, 1010011010


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.
