The Hank and Bethany Mythos by trekfan
[ - ]
Summary:

All the little stories that make up the very long relationship that Hank Harrison and Bethany Reeves have with one another over the course of their lifetime. Featuring glimpses into the past and future, these are all pretty much canon for the two. I may have contradicted myself in some of these, and if I have please let me know. As always, any and all comments are welcome. Please, enjoy.

Oh Baby by trekfan    Rated: K      Reviews (2
Summary:

Premiering on July 13th, 2011, in weekly free write # 35, the prompt was “Small Universe Syndrome.” Star Trek is particularly bad about bringing together characters that have nothing to do with one another for story purposes. With this in mind, the challenge was to do the same for a response to that week’s prompt … I could think of nothing better than this.
