Chapters: 13 (in Act I; Act II is about to be underway, and should be about the same length)
Pairing: a castfic with K/L at the center
Canonicity: Breaks the moment Kara enters Earth's coordinates in "Daybreak"
Preview: The Cylons aren't quite human, and the humans haven't quite forgiven them. Political stability is less certain than ever now that the war is over: Lee Adama finds himself up for re-election, where being defeated will mean a Gemenese theocracy puppeteered by Leoben Conoy. Meanwhile, Kara Thrace has nothing but questions about her death and destiny. The only answers available come in the form of the vision of a temple, and from her hybrid/comatose husband's cryptic ramblings about a sister artifact to the Arrow of Apollo.
There's violence in the air. Civil war looms. Can Lee and Kara save each other, and keep the fledgling colony whole?
Author's Note: The story might rightly be called, "Demilitarization: A Love Story." I'm struggling with some questions: What happens when a state of permanent total war seems to suddenly end? How do you fulfill longings that are badly damaged by repeated trauma? And who can keep peace among people so rightly bitter?
I really am coming to love this story; and I'm just getting involved, but I already love this community, too. So no further ado!
