Arc of the Wolf: Distant Horizons by SLWalker
[ - ]
Summary:

Okay. I've tried a million times to come up with a simple (or even a not so simple) way to explain this storyline and I've failed every time. I guess because there's just no way to stick it in any particular genre, or sum it up in any simple terms.

So, this time I'll just go with stating the facts: The Arc of the Wolf is a series of stories, some short, some much longer, some not even written yet, some half-written and sitting on my hard drive, some even contributed by other authors, that spans well over a century in the lifetime of Montgomery Scott. Long before TOS, and long after it.

I can guarantee that 1.) Nothing in it contradicts canon; in fact, part of the reason I've even written it is because I wanted to explain a whole lot of things I saw in canon that didn't make sense without further context. 2.) It's a pretty family friendly series -- some occasional cussing, more than you'd see on TV, but nothing gratuitous. The highest rated story is PG-13. 3.) It's written all out of order, and there are still a number of stories missing out of it, but the earlier pieces are pretty cohesive.

Not much more to be said about it, really. It takes a very close-to-the-ground, human-eye view of things. It's got a bit of everything; from joy to tragedy, from deep and intense to total comedy. All of it, though, is character driven. (And yes, it even has some art to go with it; ask if you're curious enough.)

Feedback is adored, but not required -- I'll be happy if you read it and it makes you think.

Best Smile by SLWalker    Rated: K    Liked  Reviews (8
Summary:

(2228) - Six year old Montgomery Scott has already learned a few lessons, and one of those is simple: "People leave. Even when you don't want them to." Not quite his POV, not quite apart from it.

Summary:

(2232) - Prompted by my friend RenArcher; Spock, McCoy and Scott meet as children. Kinda. Probably not what she had in mind (given the age gaps between them), but hey. Of course, none of the involved parties know each other.

Summary:

(2234) - Yes, it's gritty. No, it doesn't explain itself; it's not supposed to yet. It just is.

Junkyard Dogs by SLWalker    Rated: K+    Liked  Reviews (10
Summary:

(2237 - 2238) - A look at Scotty from fifteen through sixteen; how he gets into the idea of testing the Perera Field Theory mentioned in the novel Kobayashi Maru, as well as how he eventually gets the notion to go into Starfleet, all from the point of view of someone who has more in common with him than just a few coincidental traits. And how that person eventually comes to terms with the connection.

Processing by SLWalker    Rated: K      Reviews (4
Summary:

(2240) - Processing for Basic Training; a sort of absurd look at some of the policies and procedures that are in place to handle hundreds and hundreds of new recruits, all from the perspective of someone in way over his head.

Distant Horizons by SLWalker    Rated: K      Reviews (4
Summary:

(2240) - The second 'Basic Training' tale; two months in, Scott starts figuring out a few things. Like what freedom is, when you've earned it rather than gained it by apathy, and what it is to be just a little bit defiant against what was demanded or expected of you. Last of this set.
