“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.
Theirs truly is an epic love story… This has everything I like – a story arc, well-used dialogue, and a couple of clips of boys making love (Brian & Justin from QAF US, if I’m not mistaken – my only nitpick, as it threw me a little). Music by Jeff Buckley.
So that was another thing Nero had to answer for; he’d deprived them of buttons.
Adult, humour, nu!Trek/TOS crossover. In which nu!Jim ends up on the TOS Enterprise with his Spock and considers all the things that are different there – including the relationship between the Captain and his First.
Excellent nu!Trek AU in which Jim Kirk is an ordinary 21st century guy – if only it wasn’t for those dreams, the ones about the space ship and a sexy guy with pointy ears… Music: Dreaming wide awake, by Poets of the Fall.
