After Taking Chances, Betting on it, Betting Time, Bunking Arrangements, and Accidental, for my Third Finish It Bingo Card. And this means I've finished another card!!.

“One year.” Marsey Wilswoodronny sat down on Genique’s bunk and looked up at her. “How did you win that hand? That was an impossible hand! I knew Darretchon had the Captain, and I knew I had the Red Spear, and you - and you -”

“Declined to be cheated out of a year?” Genique’s cabin had very few amenities; she sat down backwards on the sole chair, leaned on the back of it, and looked at him. “I knew you were cheating with Darretchon. You two both have very good poker faces, but your fingers twitch and his earlobes wiggle. And your signals were very nice, but they weren’t quite as subtle as you thought they were. I find patterns,” she added, to soothe his chagrined look a little. “I’m an accountant. That’s what they have me doing, digging out patterns, putting them back together.”

Written for my [community profile] ladiesbingo card and my Second Finish-It Bingo Card for [community profile] allbingo. Genique is the title character of my Space Accountant setting.

Background: Genique just wanted to go on a nice cruise. She never anticipated being kidnapped by pirates... and when that happened, she never really expected to become their accountant. Now that she is, though, she's going to do a good job as a matter of course.

All Genique wanted was a nice, calm, relaxing vacation cruise. She'd saved up for years for it...

The pirates had other plans.

This story has two storylines, the deeply-kinky series later in Genique's voyage, and the story of the accountant on a pirate ship.

This story is best read in chronological order from "Chain 'Round her neck" on forward.

Written to [livejournal.com profile] kelkyag's prompt here for my Summer Giraffe Call. Um... before the accidental marriage timeline, after the initial first-day timeline in Space Accountant

"You have have records on paper." Genique stared at the Moneykeeper with a look that was fifty percent horror and fifty percent dry amusement. She was still getting over the fact that this so-called pirate ship had a Moneykeeper, in addition to a Quartermaster and a full rank system.

As she looked around Moneykeeper Jeffer ReemMickey's office, Genique came to the slow realization that the ship didn't really have a Moneykeeper. They had... an old man who had probably been a brilliant pirate - maybe a hitter, maybe something like a tech expert - when he was younger. He hadn't died the way pirates were supposed to, early and violently, and they’d given him a sinecure position, something to keep him out of the way.

It is a partial answer to [livejournal.com profile] kelkyag's question here and is only a year and a half in coming...



"Spill." First Mate Cleonorayen Clyd flopped into the spare chair in Quatermaster Marist Irio's bunk without asking or even knocking. She made up for it by thunking down a thick bottle filled with a bluish liquid.

Marist grabbed two heavy-bottomed glasses and poured generous shots. "You're talking about the little accountant, right?"

"Bunk change. Bunk change, Marist, what on earth possessed you?"

"What? She wanted a bunk change, I gave her one. Pretty Marsey there is going to be a happy-if-confused young man for the next year."

"But he could have been that without a marriage contract. What are you up to?"

"Pitmaster." Marist threw back her drink in one swallow. "If the girl is in a marriage contract, she doesn't go to the Pit. And none of us want her going to the Pit... do we?"

Okay! I stole this from [personal profile] balsamandash, whose post is here; they stole it from [profile] thebonesofferalletters, whose post is here. And because October goes up to 31, I have 31 characters. The characters are from 15 different settings (Counting Fae Apoc, Addergoole, & Doomsday as separate...) so there's a good chance your favorite setting is on here.

Here's the game. I have a set of characters numbered from 1 to 31. You may ask them any questions you'd like, and you can keep the conversation going. You can ask them ICly or just as yourself. They will respond with an honest* answer and as people ask questions, I will update the post with who correlates to what number.

* they might lie!

You can:
ask multiple questions to one character.
ask questions of as many characters as you'd like.
ask the same question to different characters.
ask more questions of characters that have already been revealed.
ask additional/clarification/tangential questions in response to answers.
jump in on another answer/conversation if the subject sounds interesting to you and/or your character.
use original or fannish characters to ask/comment
leave your own character for people to ask questions to if you want, be it as a list form or as a singular character who you would like to play with.

This follows after: Taking Chances, Betting on it, Betting Time, and is before Accidental.

It fills the "Sleeping arrangements" square on my [community profile] ladiesbingo card and was prompted by [personal profile] kelkyag.

559 words by MSWord.


“There have been, ah, some changes in arrangements.” As openings went, Genique had done better. But this was the Quartermaster. “I need to change my bunking arrangements, that is.”

Genique was growing familiar with all of the officers on the pirate ship, but she had not yet entirely figured out Marist Irio, the Quartermaster.

For instance, the way the woman was looking at her now, on Genique's home planet, would have been a leer. But there was something about it that seemed almost innocent, compared to the way, say, Genique's older brother had once leered about a gentleman caller.

It is part of my Space Accountant setting and comes before Accident and after Betting on It.



They were playing Flotsam, Genique and the two young men, wagering with time, their own free time, and Genique was losing.

She was losing, it appeared, badly. She was down thirty-six hours and a massage, most of it to Marsey the hitter, but a few hours here and there to Darretchon the hacker.

And Marsey had plans, she could tell, for every one of those hours. He was licking his lips. It would have been flattering, if it wasn't a bit scary.

"One year." He flicked the chips in.

Genique tried not to smile. The boy was hungry.

"One year."

Every day in February, I will answer one question about any one of my settings.

The question post is here, please feel free to add more questions!

The sixteenth question comes from [personal profile] kelkyag and is for Space Accountant 'verse.

What do the external economics and logistics of the pirate ship Genique is stuck on look like? Do they actually make most of their money on ransoms? How do they make contact to make those exchange without getting caught? Are they being grossly overcharged by their suppliers, and/or have wonky and unexpected expenses? Are they a one-of operation, or part of a larger organization??

This fills my "Bets/Wagers" square.

This is in my Space Accountant setting.

It comes before Accident and after Taking Chances.


Genique planted herself between two handsome young pirates sitting together at a table Quartermaster Marist Irio had identified as the “young bucks” table. She looked between the two of them - they were less fresh than Basi, but still shiny, new, and very handsome.

“Hello.” She offered the taller of the two her hand. “I’m Genique. I’m the new bookkeeper.”

He stared at her hand for a moment. Genique looked him over quickly. Ah, blue tattoos around each ear and down into his coverall. Trenciscot Tertius.Read more... )

"So you see..." First Mate Cleonorayen Clyd looked uncomfortable. Genique would have felt bad for her, but she was rather busy feeling bad for herself.

"No, I don't see."

"It's space law. It only has to last a year - but it has to last a year."

"Do you have any idea how much a kid could bankrupt me in a year?"

"I don't suppose 'you should have thought of that before you signed the bunking form' will fly, will it?"

"I was asking for a bigger bed! The Quartermaster said I had to!"

"Ah." Clyd laughed. "That explains everything."

This is to [livejournal.com profile] kelkyag's prompt to my December Origfic Bingo Card.



Genique is the protagonist of the Space-Accountant series.

This follows after Tradeoffs.


The Quartermaster, Marist Irio, had given Genique not only a well-tailored wardrobe but also some food for thought and some tips - and piles of bookkeeping.

She'd also given her references to several other people on the ship who had paperwork - the head Chef, for one, the head of Navigation, and the director of the Pit.

Genique woke out of a sound, somewhat drunk sleep in a startled panic. She was back in the box, she was back in the chain, she was choking...

"Genique? Miss Wadevier?" Someone was pounding on her door. Nobody had knocked before. And that wasn't Basi. "Are you in there?"

From a project I'm working on for a friend; in the same setting as the Space Accountant stories.

And that was the last of the signals. There were times Lind and her partner paid buckets of cash for what they were about to do, and times they were paid in bucketloads; there were times they just used their sidearms and quick wit and no money crossed hands at all.


Are these excerpts causing anyone enjoyment?

"Dinner?" Basimontin offered. He was standing in the doorway of the closet that was serving as Genique's temporary office, leaning, actually, possibly posing.

"Dinner?" She blinked at the stack of data pads. "Yes, dinner. Let me just get this data to First Mate Clyd, and I'll be with you."

"Clyd's already at dinner. Here," he tossed her a key. "Lock it up and report it to her tomorrow."

"But she said..."

"Did she say she wanted it done today?"

"She..." Genique shook her head. "Just that she wanted me to handle it before she sent me to the Pit."

aldersprig: a woman's face and neck, a chain wrapped round her neck (kinkbingo)
She's a thin dark-haired woman that's all points, looking a bit like this icon here, a bit like this image, but with dark eyes. Chocolate-brown eyes, dark-chocolate hair. Normally, it's pulled back into a tidy updo; she wears it about half-way down her back.

In the Pirate ship, she's wearing a one-piece jumpsuit, something like this - http://www.anchortex.com/products/Q300894 - or this http://shop.uniforms-etc.com/Transcon-Womens-CDC-Utility-Jumpsuit-508FBB-FCG.htm?categoryId=-1- only in a dark denim indigo. The suit is unbuttoned to mid-torso, over a rich red camisole (this, in red); the matching scarf is tied around her narrow waist.

She's holding a pen, or a data pad (think tablet, nook, kindle)

Basi was blushing as he led Genique back to the First Mate's quarters.

"We really screwed up your Christmas, didn't we?" he asked quietly.

"Well, you kidnapped me, kept me locked in a room for thirty-one days, took my clothes, chained me up... and gave me a job. And a pretty shirt." she plucked at the camisole. "So far, I'm not doing all that badly."

He stared at her. "Kidnapped, enslaved..."

For [personal profile] haikujaguar's prompt; this is the character/setting from these stories (and on DW)


A still-abashed Basi had escorted Genique to her new quarters, and, from there, to the supply room to fit herself with clothing. Fingering the denim and nu-cotton jumpsuits that were standard-issue, she knew her assessment had been right; they were either being grossly overcharged, or hugely over-charging their employees.

“It’s better than nudity,” she murmured, trying to settle the jumpsuit comfortably. Some time with a needle and thread would probably fix most of the problems; she wondered how many weeks’ work that would cost her.

“It is,” Basi agreed, “if only barely. On the long voyages, it can get pretty cold in here.” He looked her over, biting his lip. “I thought they’d pay the ransom.”

“I know you did. And I knew they couldn’t.”

“Aren’t you upset?”

This comes after Chain 'Round her Neck.

The title comes from this song.

They’d taken her clothes weeks ago, and Basimontin didn’t give her new ones before he removed her from her cell. He led her by the chain around her neck, like an animal on a leash, through the black-steel corridors of their pirate vessel.

“Where are we going?” she asked, but he seemed to be in a sort of trance. She was pretty sure he was more shaken up than she was – but he’d believed all along that her family would cough up the money. She’d known from the moment they took her that she was never going home again.
