The Last of Lee Stan (prompt: fan boy)|
It was a well known fact that despite all the trading that life after the end of the worlds had necessitated, that everyone on board Galactica, and perhaps in the entire fleet, had one item they simply could not part with. For Felix, that item was a limited release edition of Captain Colonial, signed by it's author, Lee Stan.
Felix had met Lee Stan when he was in high school. He'd skipped school that day and driven 50 miles to the meet and greet, a fact which hadn't made his parents too happy. Nevertheless, one month of being grounded had been totally worth it.
It was only by chance that Felix had it with him on Galactica in the first place. His apartment on Picon was being remodeled, and while his parents had offered to take his things for safe keeping, Felix simply did not trust his parents with his most valuable comics. In the end, he was glad he'd taken it with him. Because even if Lee Stan was dead, his memory would now live forever in Felix's collection. And that was a joy that Felix would never let go.
Consequences of a Bet (prompt: she got me when I was drunk)
"So how'd you get your tiger tattoo?" Louis asked.
"Dee," Felix replied.
"Dee?" Louis asked, having no clue what he meant by that.
"It was a bet. She got me when I was drunk. I've been known to never turn down a bet when I'm drunk." Louis made a mental note to remember that one for later. "She bet me that I'd never get a tattoo because it was too much like something the pilots would do. So I did. I don't even remember why I picked a tiger. Probably just the first thing I pointed to."
"So what'd you win?" Louis asked.
"She told me she was just joking! I thought I was going to kill her," griped Felix. "Instead I just made her do my laundry for two months."
"That's it?" Louis asked.
Felix grinned. "You'd be surprised how dirty you can get clothes on this ship."
A Rumor About Sharon
"Rumor has it, Sharon was actually contemplating staying on the baseship," said Dee. "I know you live with her, has she said anything about that?"
Felix looked at her quizzically. "No," he replied curtly. "Why would anyone think that? She's totally devoted to Helo, and she's totally devoted to this fleet."
Dee shrugged. "I just thought I'd ask."
"Who told you?" Felix asked, wondering who could possibly think that Sharon would abandon them.
"Felix-" Dee started.
"Dee," Felix replied sternly.
"I heard it from a couple marines. I don't know who they got it from."
Maybe someone was just trying to get under Felix's skin, Felix thought. It wouldn't have surprised him. There was simply no way the rumor was true. Sharon had already had a chance to rejoin the cylons- back on New Caprica when she'd gone for the launch keys. More importantly, he knew Sharon. She'd never go back to that. And neither would he.
