Notes: I'm a little rusty, but I come to you with an offering. The style's a little different--I've been experimenting lately. Let me know what you think. also, there's a good chance that a companion fic will be coming along for this, so keep an eye out ofr that. Thanks to Stray for the encouragement and excitement, to Cole Chan for the beta, to ColtDancer for checking in on me and encouraging me to get my rear in gear, and to thsoe who continue to read and review my stuff even though I'm not always consistent in my posting. Y'all are wonderful. Also, the poetry quoted in here is from Samuel T. Coleridge's poem "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner," which is an excellent read. And I don't own Star Trek.

Summary: The captain always goes down with his ship. Unless the crew says otherwise. Gen, happy ending.

He’s laying at the bottom of the rickety wooden boat, keeping his eyes up toward the sky so as not to look at the long crack in the hull that’s inching steadily closer to the waterline. )
