This started as a playlist drabble, using Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me (if you don't)", but it quickly grew larger than 100 words. I had the idea for this at 2 in the morning and it wouldn't let go.

Just a warning...angst and tears. Have a hankie handy.

Phlox regarded his cup of eggnog with some surprise. It definitely agreed with his Denobulan taste buds. The spices warmed him from his Santa hat to the tips of his toenails. According to tradition, there was one punch bowl with alcohol (rum, judging from the empty bottle stashed under the table). The bowl without alcohol was already empty. Phlox didn't have much of a choice, but he didn't mind.

“I hope I replicated the Terran recipe like you remember it, my love.”

He smiled at Feezal and at the matching Santa hat on her head. “Yes, it's delicious.”

Notes: A little idea I had for January's "Sir, we have a Problem" month. Some silliness ensues when Travis shares a gift during Movie Night and chaos happens. This story will be updated fairly regularly, but I can't promise it'll be at my previous lightning-speed. LOL.

Health's still iffy, but slowly getting back to my creative stuff. Thanks for all the well-wishes...really appreciated.

This story takes place after "Terra Prime" in Season 4, before my fic "Captain Mayweather's Mission". R/S and TnT implied.

Chapter Two )

Notes: What happens when you mix an unknown alcoholic drink with a strange alien flu? A very LOOONG day for our Chief Engineer and the rest of the crew. The silliness begins!

Just a note in response to a PM: In my stories (including the AU Switcheroo series), the work day on Enterprise is divided into 4 shifts of 6 hours each: Alpha (0800-1400), Beta (1400-2000), Gamma (2000-0200) and Delta, aka "The Graveyard Shift" (0200-0800). So when Trip says he has Beta shift, it means that officially, he doesn't have to be in Engineering until 2 PM. But most of the senior staff, esp. Trip, Malcolm, Archer and T'Pol, put in a lot more hours that they're "officially" required.

Reference to ENT "Singularity". Language (German): "Valderi, valdera, valderi, valdera...und schwenken meinen Hut!" That's the last line of a German song "Der Wandersmann". The first time I heard it, I was in a Munich beerhall. Seriously. And I gave Crewman Cunningham, Archer's steward, a first name: Ryan.

Please R&R, even if you haven't R&R before, thanks.

Chapter Four )

Disclaimer: Don't own 'em. Don't make money off 'em.

Notes: Yeah, the Great Mess Hall Skirmish...*snerk*. Not my idea...blame my 3 year old and mac and cheese all over my kitchen floor. LOL. Oh, BTW, there's a little(?) reference to Exploded Pen's fic "Cold Cheese" (Couldn't help myself, it just fit perfectly. Hope you didn't mind, Hannah;)).

EntAllat, I did see that episode of "Mythbusters". Frozen turkey+high pressurized air cannon+plexiglass= total destruction. Lucky for Archer that it was a glancing blow.

And great to see you, BnB! How are ya? ;)

This is the last chapter...it's longer than usual, and if there's enough interest in the end, there might be a sequel. ;) And about that story in the Observation Lounge with Malcolm, the Klingon and alcohol, I'm working on it!

Language Translations: I put the English translations next to the German (Bernhard and Johannes). Italian from Chef: Traditore! Traitor! Perché? Why? From Cunningham: Mi dispiace. I'm sorry.

Please R&R! Thanks!;)


Chapter Five )

Disclaimer: Don't own 'em. Don't make money off 'em.

Notes: Okay, this was going to be my entry for Sickbay Month, but it kinda stretched itself to more than one chapter. I wanted to write about Phlox, Feezal and their extended family on Denobula. We met Feezal in "Stigma", but other than that, there had been hardly any mention about Phlox's family in the series. We don't really know about Denobulan customs or ceremonies.

So I made 'em up for this story. So read and enjoy! Oh, and this is set sometime in the years between "Terra Prime" and "TATV".

Chapter Two )

Disclaimer: Don't own 'em, don't make money off 'em.

Notes: I actually had to diagram Phlox and his relationships with his various wives, their other husbands, the various kids, etc. and integrate what was said in ENT: "Stigma" with my made-up stuff. Yeesh, and I thought MY family was complicated, LOL!

We meet some of Phlox's family here, and yes, Feezal makes a reappearance. For reference (I hope this makes sense):

Azkiel is Phlox's first wife and she's a botanist. Yutis is her daughter (who is getting married) Opur is her second daughter (also getting married). They are NOT Phlox's. Mettus IS Phlox's son (his youngest), and he's the one who has the anti-Antaran beliefs. You find out where he got that from. The Matriarch who died, Shastia, was the eldest female in Azkiel's branch of the family.

Feezal is Phlox's second wife. Her daughters Lailah and Treesal are also Phlox's. Both Lailah and Treesal have no mates. Yet.

Zariel is Phlox's third wife. Her oldest son Nesnuz is an artist and a potter and her middle son Reestus is a director (both are Phlox's sons). Okrna is her daughter (getting married) and Ghoris is her son (getting married) from other mates (NOT Phlox).

"Ich hab' mein Herz in Heidelberg verloren" literally means, "I've lost my heart in Heidelberg", and is the first line of a love song. Heidelberg is supposed to have the reputation of being a "romantic city", so Johannes Birkenwald (from Heidelberg) teases Bernhard Mueller with it.

The teledrama "Three Gals and a Denobulan" was mentioned in one of my other fics, "Deadly Negotiations". Travis mentioned a subspace subscription of it to Malcolm as a prank... and um...someone else got it by mistake. And actually didn't mind.

Chapter Four )

Disclaimer: Don’t own ‘em, don’t make money off ‘em.

Notes: This is actually one of the first ENT stories I wrote. It’s been sitting on my hard drive for over a year and I’ve decided to dust it off. A series of coincidental meetings lead to a reunion of Porthos and his siblings. In “A Night in Sickbay”, Archer says he got Porthos from the mother of an ex-girlfriend, and he’d had the beagle since he was six weeks old. This is set after “Terra Prime”.

I’d like to give a shout-out to the military personnel stationed in the Hampton Roads, VA area. (Which includes Norfolk Naval Base, Oceana Naval Air Station in Virginia Beach, Langley Air Force Base in Hampton and Fort Eustis in Newport News.) My dad’s a retired Navy chief and I was a military brat growing up. My parents still live in that area.

And yes, Mount Trashmore is an actual park in Va. Beach, and it does have a Skate Park (modified for hoverboard skaters in this fic.)
You can see a pic of it at http (colon)(double backslash)en(dot)wikipedia(dot)com(backslash)wiki(backslash)Mount(underscore)Trashmore
This is a different kind of story than I usually write. Please R&R.

In this chapter, R/S. You’ll see TnT in the next chapter.

 

Chapter One: Porthos and D'Artagnan )

Disclaimer: Don’t own ‘em, don’t make money off ‘em.
Notes: Phlox meets a member of Doctor Lucas’s family...and a member of Porthos’s. Feezal makes a guest appearance in this one, as well as Zoesia, their granddaughter (a link with my earlier fic, “Four Weddings and a Funeral for my Sanity”. Zoesia is the daughter of Treesal (Phlox’s and Feezal’s daughter) and Lieutenant Commander Johannes Birkenwald, one of Malcolm’s Armory team).
I rewrote this chapter after I had my children...and this is dedicated to the staff at Sanger Clinic at Carolinas Medical Center Main, in Uptown Charlotte, NC, for their awesome work in pediatric cardiology, esp. Doctor B., my daughter’s doctor.
