Lieutenant-Commander Kieran Darkwater, Temporal Affairs
  "Are you sure you want to be here?" The whispered question didn't carry to 
the other occupants of the room, hanging quietly in the small gap between 
Kieran and Ana's heads.
  "Shouldn't it be me asking you that?" he asked, after a moment's thought.
  "You'd think so, wouldn't you," she admitted, with a shrug. "It's your 
hormone levels that are elevated, though. Indicators of stress, primarily."
  Leaning over her shoulder, Kieran stared at the screen of the padd she was 
holding for a moment, realising it was in fact a disguised tricorder.
  "Set up to read pheremone levels," Ana explained with a slight blush.
  "That's how you did it, that's how you stayed clear of the Changeling for..." 
he trailed off as she tensed, and he rested a hand on her shoulder, gently.  
"I'm sorry."
  "It's... I don't like to think about it. I tried to get away from it, but it 
follows me."
  "People like me follow you, you mean."

make sure they weren't here. Most people want me to go where the Changelings 
  The doors hissed open again, accompanied by the sounds of a struggle of some

  "Easy." Kieran offered, as he recognised Cynan's distinctive accent, and 
relaxed as the latest guest sauntered in with his bottle. Silence descended for 
a few moments, and Kieran eased himself away from the wall, slightly 
disconcerted by Santos' overt emotional outburst. 
  For all he'd spent his life criticising his step-sister for her Vulcan 
manner, he still wasn't entirely comfortable with wearing his heart on his 
sleeve. He self-consciously tugged his all-black uniform into line again as he 
crossed the room.
  "You came all this way," he said, pulling out the chair next to Mandrake's, 
"knew I'd be here, and you bought whisky instead of milk?"
