Summary:

This challenge was formulated while listening the song “Animal I have Become” by Three Days Grace

JJ Abrams STXI Universe

At least 6 months into their voyage.

Spock is on the edge of losing it because of the loss of the bonds with the other Vulcan’s and especially that of his mother. He feels like the rage inside him is becoming this uncontrollable monster.

Nyota wants desperately to help.

They haven’t had sex since they left space dock because Spock is afraid of the Animal inside of himself. (his animal passions that he last let out on the bridge against Kirk when choking him) She tries to force the issue and he can either a. freeze completely, as in Vulcan catatonia from which only Kirk can bring him out by bringing out his passions in any way, preferably sexually. Or b. become the animal and scare Nyota, leaving a raging Animal Spock in his quarters where Jim goes in to rescue him…

 

For reference it is suggested that you watch the video of Three Days Grace doing the song “Animal I Have Become” on You Tube and read the lyrics once. Or just find and read the lyrics. But it would be good if you listened to the music as well to get the full angst of the song.

Summary:

Go out and have yourself a nice relaxing dinner at a Chinese restaurant. At the end of the meal when you open your fortune, tack on the words “in bed” to whatever it says. Then write a K/S smut-shot/fic based on that fortune.

Any genre, any length, and anything goes.

If you don’t want to wait for dinner to get started, here are a few fortunes I pulled off the inter-web:

1.       Teamwork: the fuel that allows common people attain uncommon results.

2.       At times it is better to know when to exit than enter.

3.       Your co-workers take pleasure in your great sense of creativity.

4.       Before you wonder "Am I doing things right," ask "Am I doing the right things?"

5.       Action speaks nothing, without the Motive.

6.       What breaks in a moment may take years to mend

7.       Your dream will come true when you least expect it.

8.       The race is not always to the swift, but to those who keep on running.

Summary:

This is a challenge for you telepathy nerds and hand fetishists out there.

I guess you know Gene Roddenberry's quote on K/S:

"Yes, there's certainly some of that - certainly with love overtones. Deep love. The only difference being the Greek ideal - we never suggested in the series - physical love between the two. But it's the - we certainly had the feeling that the affection was sufficient for that, if it were the particular style of the 23rd century."

That got me thinking: What is the particular style of the 23rd century?
Somehow I doubt that homosexuality will have died out until then, or that it will be a big issue anymore.

But what if Kirk and Spock are just not hardwired to find men physically attractive? It doesn't necessarily mean that they can't find each other mentally attractive. And they don't lack the love and affection, as stated by Word of God.

I'd love a story focusing on the mental aspects of K/S. It's up to you how much physical contact you include, as long as it is not sexual - not physical-sexual anyway (if they really can't get off on male genitalia, that would be OOC under these laws).

But who ever said that their minds / souls / katras are confined to such things as sex/gender? A mental equivalent of sexuality is most welcome - gratuitous mind melding included.

Even though it's a little unfitting to call it that in the current context, I would prefer this to be a "first time" type of story which builds up over time as they struggle to overcome their concepts of orientation.

You can keep it light or work in a fair share of angst and misunderstandings, I don't care - as long as it has a satisfying ending.

Bonus points:

  • For bonding later on
  • For lots of hand kissing (from what I've read about it, it is more mentally stimulating than physically)
  • If you can weave this challenge believably into the TOS episodes, especially the slashier ones
  • If you can think of a solution for Pon Farr under these circumstances.
