Summary:

If you're Starfleet, you spend your whole life wishing you never see an EPAS uniform right up until the moment they become your only hope. Whether you're dying a slow, cold death in space, or a long painful one on some godforsaken planet, they're going to come for you. So count your last breaths, son, and hold on tight.

Look at me, 6 years late to the party! But I just couldn't help myself. You write a mean plot. Exquisite, really. The build up with the two of them is perfect, no imature angst, just a slow and graceful journey. Loved it. All of it. 

I have one thing only to complain about. You can't see Alpha Centauri from San Francisco.

Summary:

It’s a question of biology. Vulcan biology.

The problem with falling in love with a member of an insanely private species is that it just might take you the best part of a five year mission to work out that the feelings are requited. And then you might discover that he’s already decided that the two of you can never be together.

And what are you supposed to do if he won’t tell you why?

~*~

Written as a response to T'Lara’s ingenious challenge, which is noted when it shows up in-text. Huge thanks to my fantastic betas Frodolass, penguin_attie and miloowen for being, well, fantastic. Any mistakes that remain are all mine.

I actually thought the I am not Spock reference was when he tries to do math to distract himself from the feelings he had for Jim. Like in The Naked Truth episode where he does math to stop thinking about how he never told his mother he loved her. Nimoy has a very poetic take on that scene, he explaines how Spock is trying to put love and math in opposition.



Author's Response:

Wow - turns out I need to read the rest of this book, then! I've only read snippets of it here and there (I'm very, very lazy about reading ST-related stuff that isn't slash or slash meta!). I would love to read his take on that scene; it sounds fascinating. Thank you!

An Unexpected Journey by CMM Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 545]
Summary:

Now done!

This is in response to Kittygirl's Jim the Single Parent challenge:

This idea has been floating around in my brain for a while so I figured I'd issue a challenge to see what people came up with. This does have the potential to be rather long.

It goes like this:

While Spock is still with Uhura, he ends up having a drunken fling with Kirk, who is completely in love with him. Kirk somehow ends up pregnant with his child(it doesn't matter how you make this come about, either meddling aliens or an auxiliary uterus idea that keeps floating around or that Jim just can). When Spock is finally informed of the conception he decides that, since he and Uhura cannot have children together for whatever reason (completely your idea why), Jim's child be the perfect candidate instead and decides to take the child and whisk it away New Vulcan after it is born to raise it with Uhura. He believes Jim to illogical and reckless to raise a child. Enlisting McCoy's help, who thinks that its better for the child to be raised by Vulcan's, the trio keep a close eye on Jim in case he gets wind of the plan. When Jim realizes what Spock is planning, he puts in his resignation in Starfleet and leaves for parts unknown. Some years pass (more than 2 less than 7) and Jim returns as a personal favor to Chris Pike to command the Enterprise again with a little surprise in tow. Now Spock has to deal with a child that does not like him for the pain he caused its Mother(the kid has to call Jim mom)and the complete distrust of Jim with his child.

 

You may use any name you wish for the child, boy or girl. How Jim finds out the plot is entirely up to you. Uhura could tell him in a fit of anger at him, or he could overhear them talking or McCoy tells him in a fit of Conscience.

I would like it in the Abrams Universe, because I think a mixture of Jim and Spock would look so cute with Blue eyes. However this does come with a few stipulations.

1. Under no circumstances does Jim have any communication with the trio of evildoers until he returns to the Enterprise(I've always wanted to use that word). In his mind Bones, Spock, and Uhura betrayed him. Anyone else is completely welcome.

2. Sarek is the doting Grandpa... He can know he has a grandchild and is kept updated on the child's growth. I think it would be an awesome way to re-introduce Jim back to the Enterprise by having him and child picked up from Sarek's home...

And 3...

HAS TO HAVE HAPPY ENDING!

Since two of my other long pieces are coming pretty close to the end, I decided it was time to reclaim my crown as queen of mpreg.

I love angst stories! and I just love it when Spock has to work hard for forgiveness.
Selik is always nice to have, cause he's just the kindest being in the universe, so yeah, love to see him show up.

Colony War by KaraStorm Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 82]
Summary:

Lt. Kirk has been given a simple mission, to clear a suspected rebel colony base. But his mission doesn't go well and he needs some unexpected help to survive. Relations between Vulcan and Earth are breaking down, threatening a three-way war. From his demoted position, Kirk must try and pull together his crew and repair a broken Federation.

I wanted to put our hero Kirk in a rougher place with less easily led crewmembers to see how he fared. And I wanted him to have to deal with a younger Spock who had been much more sheltered.

I have loved this story! The slow build up was amazing, all the plots and sub plots and Spock is so repressed (which makes complete sense!) I can't wait to read the next one! You did an amazing job!



Author's Response:

Thanks for being patient and trusting that we would get there. I much prefer to take my time and enjoy the jouney.

I did not see this coming! I was reading it last night before bed and then my head was just spinning! It will be fascinating to see what Spock's plan is and how they'll get out of this. This is one of my favorite stories ever, you are amazing!



Author's Response:

Thanks for the compliment. I feel like this story is a bit niche and couldn't be anyone's favorite as a result. So that's great!

I love this story! I love the rural setting and the slow build of their relationship. I'm so excited to see what's next. I do hope Spock will be the hero and he'll pull some strings to get Jim either a nice pension either some kind of computer related job he could do from home. I do like your portrayal of Spock, he's not too stiff, he seems to have accommodated to the humans around him. "Franksgiving" made me laugh.



Author's Response:

Thank you so much! I'm really glad you are enjoying my little holiday fic.
I'm definitely going to try and figure out something in order to get Jim out of that bartending job. It might have been a good idea for him when he was young and had nothing to lose. But now that he's responsible for another life, it doesn't fit his personality any longer. He is far less reckless than he used to be.
I had to mess with Spock a bit in order to have him fit into this fic, otherwise David might have just confused/annoyed him. >.< Children are very tactile, they like to touch and Spock needed to be touchable. =P
I just realized that 'Franksgiving' can also be connected to Jim's step-father's name; 'Frank'. Haha!

This has been such a wonderful story! I'm such a sucker for slow building romance and angst, it makes the glorious get-together all the more satisfying.  Can't wait for part two!



Author's Response:

Thank you, I couldn't agree more! I am excited to start working on part two, but I'm making myself wait and take a break. So in a few weeks hopefully, I'll begin my work anew. Thank you for reading and reviewing, it's my inspiration. =]
