Review – The Three of Us
The Three of Us is one of my best fan fiction efforts.
As the third piece of the E2 series, I wanted to pursue a Star Trek fan fiction story that I had had in mind for quite a while.
This was an idea about a love triangle/threesome among Lili, Jay, and Malcolm. Of all four stories set during that time period, this one was the most fully realized, and the easiest to write. I had tons of it in my head even before pen went to paper (and then I transcribed it to pixels). I wish all storytelling was like this!
The story begins with Malcolm providing a little news and ship’s gossip to the still-injured Ethan Shapiro.
Malcolm speaks a little about the remaining single women on board the Enterprise, but he mainly discusses an upcoming baseball game between the MACOs and Starfleet. The action shifts as Lili tries out for the Starfleet team and then Shelby and Andrew talk about why she won’t be playing. The first chapter ends with Judy Kelly Rostov going into labor, the mark of the second child to be born on the generational ship (Valleri Rostov, so-named because Davy Jones of the Monkees had recently died when I was writing that part of the story).
As the book continues, more and more of the single women are snapped up, until only two are left ….
- The Monkees – Valleri
- Bing Crosby – White Christmas
- Santa Claus is Coming to Town (sung by the single men, but this version is by Bruce Springsteen)
- Dusty Springfield – I Only want to be with You
- The Three of Us on Ad Astra
- In addition, The Three of Us on Fanfiction.net
- The Three of Us on Fictionpad
The story is Rated M.
As stated above, I had a lot of this storyline in my head as I was writing and even beforehand. From the weddings to the aliens to the spirituality to the triumphs and tragedies, the love and the nastiness, this is one of my absolute favorites of my works.
