Shelter by Leslie Fish Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 20]
Summary:

"Shelter" was the third K/S story ever published. I wrote it specifically to support the K/S faction in Trek fandom, which was coming under fire at the time.

Poses by Leslie Fish Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 12]
Summary:

The sequel to "Shelter." Kirk, Spock, and McCoy return to the Enterprise and try to maintain the poses of normal life. This story was originally published in Obsc'zine #1, copyright 1977 by T'Kuhtian Press, Lori C-C, editor. "Poses" was the sequel to "Shelter", written primarily because so many fans wrote to me after "Shelter" was published, frantically asking: "What happened after they woke up?" I realized that I couldn't leave Our Heroes hanging in that situation, so I worked out what happened— apparently to everybody's satisfaction.
