Kara walked away from the crowd surrounding Caroline Adama. Lee was nowhere to be found, neither was his father. She finally found them. All she had to do was follow the sound of their raised voices.

Lee was furious, "It's your fault! You're the one that pushed him to fly!"

Kara hoped he wouldn't take this conversation too far.

"It was an accident, Lee!"

"An accident that killed my brother! An accident that never would have happened if you'd been a father, and opened your eyes!"

`No Lee, don't play that card.' Kara thought, as she watched from a distance.

Reality of a Viper Pilot
Winner: Dean (aka Chunx)

Word of the Week: Time

Story Timeline: series
Characters: All

Time to go down to the tubes and get into a viper,
The techs have armed and fueled it up and cleaned it with a wiper
Now I'm shot out into space to fight another Cylon,
To blast them into bits of steel, fibreglass, and nylon.
And when my guns are empty and my viper's low on fuel,
It's time to land and stretch my legs, then grab a bowl of gruel.
So when you get those viper wings and think of guts and glory,
It's just a boring circle which is told within this story.
So say we all!

The report of the guns seems unnaturally loud in the stillness of the afternoon. She flinches slightly at each of the three volleys. She is acutely conscious of the scent of the white roses lying near the casket...

The engagement had not yet been officially announced, so it is to Caroline Adama, and not to her, that the guard of honor presents the folded Colonial flag...

As the mourners begin to drift away from the gravesite, she looks up at the flawless, liquid sky and wonders at the unfairness that today, of all days, the sky should be so blue...

Summary- Some dreams are better than others.

"Take the damn shot!" Captain Adama growled as the Cylon Raider flipped plunging towards the fleet. Starbuck's Viper spun behind the enemy. Red flames flickered from its gun ports. The rounds found their mark shattering the Raider.

On the flight deck as an angry Lieutenant Thrace opened her mouth to tear into Lee she noticed his shocked face and looked down.

"Frak!" Starbuck awoke startled, but soon forced herself back to sleep. Back on the flight deck, she looked down – she was dressed.

Looking up, she saw Apollo patiently waiting for her… naked. "Much better," Kara purred walking towards Lee.

Lt. Sharon Valerii stared into the barrel of her gun.

She never prayed to the Lords of Kobol. Her heart knew only one God. When had she lost faith in the truth everyone believed?

Sharon shoved the gun into her mouth. Her tongue tasted cold steel, like a first, hesitant kiss.

Baltar's test proved her human. She wanted to believe.

When she slept, sin danced behind her eyes.

Lost love.Pain. Death. She wanted to believe her dreams lied.

Her hands shook.

Was it sin to take your own life?

Would death erase sin?

She prayed.

"You're kidding me, right?"

No answer.

"Oh, frak, you're not are you? You've really been using that thing to spy on me."

"Kara, it's not what you think."

"Oh, and just what is it I think, Lee?"

Apollo shifted uncomfortably. "That I've been using the zoom on the observation deck to watch you undress every night."

"Really?" Kara smiled broadly, eyebrows spiking playfully. "Why, Lee Adama, you little perv. See anything you like?"

"Well, yeah I-" Apollo stopped mid-sentence, his mouth open in disbelief. "You're not -mad?"

"Nah, but I would've been if you'd been checking up on my flying."
