Moby Dick

Event Horizon by Norah

'It's a solemn thing, to go out into the dark. Disc mining's not an occupation for those who like comfort or the familiar. The dark looks back at you in a way you can't explain.' Space AU short, with fascinating world-building bubbling beneath the Queequeg/Ishmael foreground

[Added 24/12/2017; Romance/Erotica; 2500-6000; Moby Dick; Adult]

The Hen Frigate by The Alchemist

'Had she ever been pressed sufficiently hard, the long-suffering Mrs Ahab would have been forced to own that there was an extent to which persons who think it wise to use a six inch long knife to stab a creature with 14 inch thick skin, had, in the vernacular of the common folk, it coming to them.' An enjoyable fix-it AU, which invents a worthy wife for Ahab. The delicious dark humour that pervades the piece is a bonus

[Added 14/04/2015; Drama; 6000-20,000; Moby Dick]
