It was Chuck. But Chuck was six months dead, and this was… something else. And his mind just didn’t want to wrap around it. What would happen when the clone woke up?
Adult, post-movie, canon-compliant. Before Pitfall, Chuck let himself be cloned, memories and all – except he tampered with them, leading to some… interesting variations. This hits right in the Chuck feels, dear me!
Dead Man Walkin’, by GutterBall
Spock says something and it’s the same voice, but also very fucking different. Everything and nothing is the same, and his thoughts are spinning. He’d recognize that voice anywhere. He knows what it sounds like screaming in anger, and how it sounds, hushed and whispering to him with barely disguised lust.
Mature, angst. Oh holy hells, right in the feels! Reboot Kirk and Spock are fated – but sometimes that’s just not enough.

“All right, I have a question for you. Oh, but you don’t have to answer it. I feel like if you don’t answer it though, you’re kind of answering it, you know…”
Mature, post-Winter Soldier. Natasha asks Steve the questions we all like to have answered. She does not quite expect what she finds out.

“We’re just… skipping ahead,” Jim said. “That’s cheating,” Spock said weakly. “Well.” Jim moved suddenly, flipping Spock over on his back and rolling over to straddle him. “I’m comfortable with that. You?”
Adult, post-2009 movie.Spock is feeling the after-effects of the events of the movie. Kirk, equipped with information from the mind-meld with Spock Prime, is not about to leave him alone. *happy sigh*
A Level Course and True, by Brighteyes
“I couldn’t bear to think of what might be happening to you. And then I… thought you were dead.” An astonishing wall of grief and loss hit Kirk – submerged him completely – then as abruptly passed. He looked down, suddenly aware that Spock had clasped both of his hands – a looser, gentler grasp than the desperate way Spock had clutched at him in that mountain cabin when Kirk had first found him – and somehow more astonishing.
Adult, post-TOS novel “Ishmael”. I used to read a lot of TOS novels, and “Ishmael”, in which Spock loses his memory and is stranded in Earth’s past, was a favourite. This fic doesn’t require foreknowledge. It deals beautifully with Kirk and Spock having to face certain home truths about their feelings for one another.

Now she touches him slowly, deliberately, longer and longer each time as he gasps and writhes beneath her touch.
Adult, power exchange. A take on Logan and Rogue’s relationship I don’t think I’ve seen before – it’s dark but it works.

Oh wow. This starts as a Kirk-centric vid (both TOS and nu!Trek), but then it goes so, so much wider and deeper. Music: The Boxer, by Simon & Garfunkel, plus some additional material.
Vid: Star Trek, The Long Spear, by jmtorres, niqaeli et al.
“Swords, wizards, magic, fighting, forests, tyrants, prophesizing, lotsa running, and ladies with pretty hair.” Basically an awesome showdown between Legend of the Seeker and Merlin. Which totally works 100%. (Seriously, the ENDING! *g*) Music: Running, by Menomena.
