Finders Keepers - FourStepping into Kaolla Suu's room was like entering another world.
In stark contrast to the orderly, if slightly monotonous, paper-thin translucent wall panels and lacquered wood flooring of traditional Japanese architecture, the princess of Molmol's private living space was the chaotic yet oddly harmonious epitome of allowing nature to take its course. From the compacted earth floor rose a myriad of shrubs, orchids and vine-encrusted trees, filling every nook and cranny whilst somehow unconstrained by the supposed confines of the standard nine-tatami double-rooms allocated to each tenant. With the room filled with the tranquil virgin rainforest ambience, leaves glistening with crystal-clear droplets of moisture and delicate shafts of light peering through numerous openings in the faux jungle canopy, anyone who had stumbled in would have been caught in an ethereal experience of an unspoiled Eden.
Yet none of this fazed the petite blonde teenager that was presently scampering merrily her
Finders Keepers - Three"Damage report!"
Accompanied by the sound of a panel being forced open, Zhang's voice cut through the deafening silence of the pitch black darkness. After groping blindly for some time, the Captain finally laid a hand on what felt like a handrail, and guided himself towards it.
"Main power's offline. Backups must have been knocked out too," another voice emanated from somewhere below his left knee.
Just as he helped the other officer to his feet, the void was pierced by a series of scant flashes of illumination, flickering for a moment before finally settling and lighting the whole room, revealing the familiar curved walls, beams squared arches of the bridge. Stations beeped and hummed back to life, with crisp block shapes in various shades of cerulean blue appearing once more on LCARS computer panels.
Standing next to Zhang behind the handrails was a Caucasian male in his late twenties with short tousled brown hair and strong stubbled jawline, none the worse for wear thanks to his ath
Finders Keepers - TwoUSS Odyssey, NX-94276
Intrepid-class Exploration Cruiser
Stardate 87450.9, 1425 hours shipboard time
Captain's Log, Stardate 87450.9. It has been six days since the Odyssey departed from Aperture Station at Starbase 171 and entered the adjacent interphasic rift. Despite assurances from Dr. Tigan and Lieutenant Commander Remara that all possible measures are being undertaken to ensure the safety of our journey, there is a sense of anxiety amongst the majority of the crew, which has only been further exacerbated by a series of mysterious incidents plaguing the ship in the preceding days.
Captain Robin Zhang scrunched his face up in a most undignified manner, as he yawned and rolled his shoulders back before settling his moderate frame back into the creature comforts of his chair in the Ready Room. It had already been three-quarters of the one full hour he had allotted himself for the reviewing of various daily reports, yet he had barely finished his second one. He could swe

"Now that," Keitaro declared, "was absolutely delicious."
"I'm glad you liked it, Senpai!" Shinobu glowed as she cleared the empty noodle bowl from the table.
Whilst the petite young cook with the deep dark blue hair hummed happily by the foaming kitchen sink, the ex-ronin-turned-archeology postdoc relaxed as he leant back in his chair, letting his mind wander. He figured that, between a hard morning's work marking undergraduate papers for his mentor Noriyasu Seta, his own continuing research and the usual duties required of the landlord of an all-girl's dormitory, he deserved a small break, the late lunch notwithstanding.
"Senpai, how is that paper you're editing coming along?" The cooked asked as she lifted a just-rinsed dish from under the tap.
"To be honest, I've only just started," the landlord sighed with a small grin. "There's quite a few journal submissions I'm reviewing right now, and I
