This is in response to Rihala's Balance of Terror and Love Challenge. It goes like this::
ST: XI Abrams fic based on the TOS episode "Balance of Terror."
Spock is no stranger to being the unwilling subject of racism and xenophobia because of his childhood on Vulcan. So when a fellow crewmember begins flaunting his bigotry in increasingly violent encounters with the Commander, Spock intends to follow Starfleet protocol an resolve the conflict as professionally and quietly as possible. However, when he contacts the head of security, he finds that Chief Giotto shares the same xenphobic tendencies he trying to dissipate.

Okay, so I hope this fits the bill. My first attempt at a multi-chaptered fic with an actual plot in YEARS! Please review, I love to hear what people think, it's very helpful when you're trying to improve your skills to hear feedback about what you're doing right or wrong. Thanks!
