Everything is in bloom in my neck of the woods and everyone is sneezing with hay fever and allergies. I'm asking for a fic that can be comedic or angsty where for once there's a flu or virus floating around the Enterprise and the crew members with iron based blood are immune and the crew members with copper based (namely Spock, but he needs enough company to keep sickbay hopping) are miserable.
Prefer Reboot Kirk/Spock in an established relationship.
Symptoms are up to you, but they must be bad enough to make a stoic Vulcan miserable.
*Bonus for Kirk blackmailing McCoy into bottling up his snark about Spock's Vulcan physiology until its killing him to be nice and he explodes.
*Bonus for some reason that's Spock can't or is unable to enter a healing trance.
*Bonus for someone singing the Soft Kitty song from The Big Bang Theory TV show.
Characters: Chapel, Chekov, Gaila, McCoy, Scott, Sulu, Uhura
Allergens invade the Enterprise and leave the Vulcan crew members suffering.
Slightly AU, or maybe just 'artistic license' to comply with a challenge as I have a hard time believing that of 'fewer than 10,000 Vulcans', this many would be on the Enterprise.
Written in response to Arcadii's Achoo!" challenge. Because I am suffering the season of allergies and went trolling the challenges looking for a one-shot idea that wasn't going to be a total self-pity party and found instead an excuse to make Spock as miserable as I am. Why else would I write a fic?
