Living in a vast set of interlinking caverns can be very monotonous, so I make my own entertainment. This specific part of the slash caverns is dedicated to the stories I have written in honor of the two I love: Spock and McCoy.
I don't seem to be getting anything done that's worth a damn. Somebody slap me with a worthwhile plot bunny.
