Change of Heart (Prompt: I love you more)
ement thrums through Kara as she marks off the final item on her pre-flight checklist. It'll be a grueling trip back to Caprica but they're waiting for her. He's waiting.

She bites back the stupid grin tugging at her lips and hands the clipboard to the Chief.

"Everything good, Cap?"

"Good enough, Chief. Let's roll." He nods and walks away.

Kara takes a breath and places a foot on the ladder to the cockpit. She's just grasping the rails to pull herself up when a loud exclamation makes her turn.

"Gods frakking dammit!" Chief is yelling, pale-faced and furious as he hangs up the phone. "Cally! Jammer! I need tubes 3 and 4 cleared and two raptors prepped for the Pegasus RFN!"

Pegasus. Kara pivots. "Chief! What's going on?" He ignores her, pacing rapidly across the deck, shouting out orders, and Kara strides faster to catch up. "CHIEF! I need a sitrep stat!"

Tyrol turns, looking almost surprised to see her. "Captain you need to get out of here, we need these tubes free!"

Kara grinds her teeth, reaches out and grabs the man by his orange jumpsuit, barely resisting the urge to shake the information out of him. "WHAT IS GOING ON WITH THE PEGASUS?"

He blinks and says quietly. "Cylons have boarded the ship, sir."

Lee, she thinks and freezes, her heart hammering into overdrive. And then she's moving, running back to her ship, calling over her shoulder. "Change my flight course to Pegasus, Chief."

"What about the mission?" he yells after her.

But Kara's already up the ladder and sliding her helmet on, closing the canopy above her. She powers up the viper, trying to breathe and not think. Her hand's shaking as she reaches for the console, and it pauses over the button to clear the jump coordinates. She closes her eyes, and for a second she pictures Anders, cornered at the school, those metal motherfrakkers pinning him and the C-Bucs down. And then the image ripples, dark hair and blue eyes shifting and it's Lee's face she's seeing.

Kara curses and sends a prayer up to the gods in the same breath. Sammy will be alright. Helo will make sure. But Lee...

Lee needs her.

The landing gear disengages and Kara grasps the throttle and floors it, hurtling out of the launch bay and into the dark of space.


She takes down two of those metal motherfrakkers and a skinjob before she finds him, in the corridor outside of CIC, armed to the teeth and shouting commands to two pale-faced bridge bunnies who barely look old enough to shave on his six. Blood spatters his dress blues and the side of his face, but he's upright and he's pissed off and that's a good sign. This time Kara lets the stupid grin stretch from ear to ear, as she falls in next to him.

"You provide cover fire, lieutenant, and we need to get down to Causeway C where the arms lockers are."

"Copy that, sir, but it's captain now," Kara says, grinning as Lee's head whips around.

"Kara! What the--?" He stops, his eyes wide with amazement. "Shouldn't you be halfway back to Caprica right now, Captain?"

Kara shrugs, squeezes off a round as another cylon clanks into view at the end of the corridor. Lee fires too and the robot falls under the combined barrage of their bullets.

"Had another rescue op that took priority." She chances a glance at him. "Heard my wingman got himself into a bit of trouble."

A slow smile spreads across Lee's face. "Your wingman? Did you just demote me, Starbuck?"

Kara rolls her eyes, still grinning. "Is now really the time to be a superior asshole, Apollo?"

They just stand there, staring and grinning, until one of the lieutenants behind them coughs then nervously says, "Uh sirs, should we get going?"

Lee straightens and the smile drops off his face. "Fall in," he barks, his voice ringing with authority. "Have your weapons ready, but conserve your ammo. It's imperative we secure that locker."

"Yes, sir, Commander!" The lieutenants chorus, and a sense of nostalgia fills Kara. She's missed this. Missed him.

"Starbuck?" Lee questions at her silence. "Are you with me?"

She is. She always will be. Kara salutes, eyes sparkling. "On your six, Apollo."

Ahhh, I love when Kara can't go rescue Sam because she has to rescue Lee!

And oh, how I have missed pilot banter. *sigh* Perfect!

<3 <3 <3 ME TOO. I miss their banter like whoa.

I have so many half-finished ficlets from the past few months and it was such a relief to finally finish something! Sigh.

Thanks lady!

Pilots back together in battle (and bantering! ♥♥♥♥♥) is one of my favourite things ever. Especially when she 'demoted' him <3

Oops... EXCITEMENT thrums through Kara. Not ement. Whatever that is.
Oops. Had cutting & pasting error. That first word should be "Excitement". Whoopsy
