"This is the captain. We have a little problem with our entry sequence, so we may experience some slight turbulence and then - explode."
My ship is currently sailing over half a dozen worlds, gathering stray cats, sushi, combat boots, another library to match the one already on board, and dreamlike images to play in the puppet theater. We run on steam. No modern-day physics here. I am happily married. We live on the coast, in the air and above the water of sunny California.
My nickname is Maea. If you're not one of the crew, you don't have to call me "sir". If you see any quotes here in my universe, they're probably from Joss Whedon's Firefly or Serenity.
"Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse... but you take a boat in the air that you don't love... she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down... tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home."
