No One Can Hear You (Chronological Order)
No One Can Hear You Travel
Dor and Kenya have been best friends since they first met in middle school, when Dor had just moved to the planet New Kansas. As they graduated at the top of their high school class, their futures were looking bright. But when their applications to The Pilgrims, the space exploration agency, was denied, they were left scrambling for some way forward. Their other options were limited, and none would keep them together. Or so they thought.
Both of Dor's parents had retired from The Terran Alliance Fleet, the main military and policing force of the known worlds. She always thought that she'd rather be caught dead than signing up. That is, until the recruiter insisted that they could stay together while enlisted. The catch? They'd have to get married. 33rd century or not, that sort of thing just wasn't done on New Kansas.
On the way to basic training, their group was waylaid by pirates. With help too far off, they take it upon themselves to try to escape their captors. After all, in space, no one can hear you travel.
No One Can Hear You Train
After escaping the pirates that had captured them, Dor and her friends crash land in the badlands of New Triton. But even with their emergency beacon running, no one seemed ready or willing to help them. The politics of the oncoming war has followed them from the space station. Even those that don't know about the war could feel it in the wind of the Terran Alliance. The only way for the group to be rescued was for them to take the dangerous trek across the inhospitable desert, hoping to make it to the terraformed section of the colony.
Once saved from their destroyed ship, Dor, Derryl, and Worse resume their original plans, heading to Earth for basic training. Dor's wife, Kenya, had arrived ahead of them, greeting her like the old friend that she was. Only everything isn't the same between them. Not after that kiss. Not after the time apart. Not with Kenya flourishing in training, and Dor falling behind. But at least Dor isn't alone in failing. At least, not at first.
But not everything at basic training is on the level. Something is happening in the shadows. A mystery that Dor can't quite figure out. But not for lack of trying. Besides, in space, no one can hear you train.
No One Can Hear You Thrive
Once again, graduation is upon Dor and Kenya, as their basic training comes to an end. But this was only the beginning of their time training under the fleet. Unfortunately, their A-schools were on different planets, bringing the two to yet another separation. This one, however, was set to be a short one. This one, supposedly, was set to be their last.
Except, with Dor and Derryl heading to the same A-school, the feelings that always lingered between them quickly reared its head once more. And as the tests prove to be more difficult than either had been expecting, than either had experienced before, they only got closer as they strived to get through their program in one piece. However, how close is too close when hiding out alone in a classroom together?
With the larger than normal demon population at their A-school seemingly having no trouble getting through the coursework, Dor starts to think that something else is going on in their strange, secretive program. For Dor, failing isn't an option. Especially since, in space, no one can hear you thrive.
No One Can Hear You Fly
Dor and Kenya are finally back together, once and for all. There are no more secrets coming between them. Dor has come to terms with her feelings for Kenya, and Kenya's feelings for her. Everything should be right with the worlds.
But war has finally come to the galactic neighborhood. The Delnadians have started taking out their age-old grievances against the humans on them. The two sides are only starting the fighting, but it was only a matter of time until it came to blows. Until people started dying on both sides.
The one thing that both sides need to fight the war is mages. They had powered the fleets for centuries, ever since the Delnadians first brought their FTL drives out of their factories and hooked them up to the mana reactors. But with the demense affecting more and more of them, there are fewer of them out there to take on the role of powering the reactors. How soon will it start impacting the war effort? Which side will feel the impact first? Will Dor's mother be the first one to go? While Dor hopes thats not the case, she already knows that, in space, no one can hear you fly.
No One Can Hear You Spy
The war between the Terran Alliance Fleet and the Delnadian Empire wasn't going well, for either side. Battle lines had been drawn long before it ever started, and those lines hadn't changed much. Both sides of the rising conflict only had so many resources, so many ships, so many worlds, so many soldiers. All were running low.
But wars aren't only fought on the battlefield. There were more ways to battle than just ship against ship, soldier against soldier. The spies were everywhere, working for their chosen sides. They weren't only trading in secrets, though. They were trading in a resource far more important in the war. What that is, no one is sure of. Because in space, no one can hear you spy.
