Her small fingers clutch Dreilide's and her chubby legs kick against the waves until there's one forceful enough to shift his balance and engulf her head.

He hurriedly pulls her up. She coughs, spits out water, nearly cries... then laughs.

"She's lucky," Doc Weston says. "That eye isn't pretty, but" -- he winks at Kara -- "you should see the other guy."

Socrata's thin lips almost curve. She tilts Kara's face up for a motherly inspection, her hand the gentlest it's been in years.

Lee stares at her like she's sprouted wings.

"It's gonna be okay." She grins. "I've been to Earth."

Only part of it's strict canon, but there's not a bit of it I can't see happening. I'm so glad you can, too. ♥

Perfect choice for a response to this prompt. I love the moments from her past that are worked in here; they work really nicely as other important moments that fit with her post-Earth rebirth.

And hey, let me tell you again how much I love the way you write Starbuck.

It was certainly the only thing I could think to write once the new prompt went up. Thank you so much!

I'm so flattered that you enjoy her. She's a lot of fun to write.
