I get them all the time. This one in the bath.
PSY-CHICK... that's right, sci fi chicklit
Magenta has been told her whole life that she is psi and just repressing her talent. But try as she might, she can't read minds. And so long as she is tagged PSI she can't get any other sort of normal job. Magenta gets by as a freelance electrical technician at the docking bay.
Then she meets the offworlder AI ship Ariadne and her gorgeous Captain Chris Chauncy. A station short citcuit blasts a lot of the ships and Magenta gets work helping test and repair Ariadne's systems. It seems like there might be something between her and Chris, but there is defintiely something between her and Ariadne--she can read the ship's mind!
Magenta lands a sweet loner term job with the offworlders who don't know about her PSI status because the station databases are down, but her relationship with Chris gets off to s shaky start. Ariadne reacts to her bond with Magenta by adapting her personality to Magenta's desires. The new and distinctly masculine persona, Aaron, leaves a lot of people confused--especially Chris who thinks he is still the ships bondmate and wonders what this says about his sexuality.
Fortunately Magenta is happy to help Chris get back in touch with his heterosexuality. As her friendship with Aaron develops the ship becomes more highly sentient then before. When the truth finally comes out it is clear that Magenta's peculiar AI-psi ability may be highly valuable in developing the next generation of AI unmanned ships.
So there you go. It would be the first in a series involving angst, flying cats, gay pirates, a war with rogue sentient ships and--of course--lost of sex. Not that I have time to write it.
