I've lurked for so long on this archive, I decided that it was time to emerge from the shadows.


I'll certainly get to reviewing some of the fantastic things I've read once or twice, and then the ones I've read a whole lot of times!  It will take a while.  I owe a ton of reviews!

Also, a big thank you to anyone who reads what I write and is kind enough to review.  It means a great deal to me.

I only have one word right now: "HOT!"

 

That being said, I need some ice cream to try to cool down from said hotness.  Fantastic! *fans self*  Maybe they'll get to the ceremony in a few decades or so.

LOL thanks.  Another disappearing review.... sorry I did not respond earlier but just now is the first time I have seen this.

The Bones Ultimatum by Pamdizzle Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 11]
Summary:

The third (and final?) installment to my Romancing the Bones Series. It's probably a good idea to read the first two first, but I don't think it's completely necessary, unless you *like* hot sex. Also, I used this to try and answer two of Soldier Girl's challenges at once, both of which are linked below.

Spock is getting ready to leave for New Vulcan in order to attend its version of Gol. The reason? Even though Bones has been he and Jim's lover for a year now, Spock can still sense the doctor's hesitancy regarding melds. Unfortunately, however, the real trouble is that he and Jim's nascent link has begun expanding toward Leonard, causing Spock to enter into Pon Farr.

Bones overhears an argument between his two lovers, has a decision to make, and does so with GUSTO. Contains humor, slight angst and a descent amount of naughty bits. I do hope you enjoy. :)

I usually steer clear of threesome fics - don't know why, either, but regardless - just had to read this.  And...*drools* yum...*sips tea*  Yes, yumalicious.  That is all.  My gosh.  I'll read any other threesome fics you do!  Goodness! :)



Author's Response:

Well, there's two more in the series, but I'm pretty sure the hottest sex of the trilogy takes place in Third Wheel, *wink, wink* :) And there are a few others...I'm glad you took a chance and enjoyed. I'll probably comb through again and make further adjustments later this week. I've had it on my laptop for three days and I just pounded it out today, LOL! Thanks for the rating!

Author's Response:

Glad you liked it. I have a few ideas about Spock's role-play gift, but I think it's more fun if I leave it to the imagination. :)

The Rules of Vulcan Engagement by Pamdizzle Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 25]
Summary:

This is in answer to Hypatia Kosh's challenge which is linked below.

Jim is happily bonded to Spock, but there's jut one thing standing in the way of their seamless happily ever after: Sarek.

As the highest paid diplomat in the Federation...the Vulcan Ambassador has no shortage of funds...so why is he charging expensive dinners, clothing, and even transit tickets to his own son's wedding to Jim and Spock's personal account?

Contains humor, K/S goodness and fluff and a fair amount of precious metal and gems...

I have placed this under both TOS and Nu, because no universe is alluded to inthe story and any details that would indicate a specific universe were purposefully avoided, just because I like a challenge. lol. Let me know if I pulled it off!

Author's Response:

Yay! I'm so glad you liked it, lol. I actually thought of some subtle ways to get even with Sarek, but the more I thought about it the more I realized that Jim wouldn't be subtle in either universe, not about this. And so came the fountain...LOL

The Right Touch by CMM Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 81]
Summary:

Done!!!!

This is based on Sochya's challenge of the same name, in which Spock tries to deal with the fact that Jim is afraid of him after their confrontation on the Bridge. This is a real problem, since Spock has fallen for the man he once tried to choke to death.

I hadn't planned to make it multi-chapter, but it's turning out a bit longer than I'd expected, and people are getting worried because I haven't posted in a week. So I'll post what I have today. The whole thing will be two chapters, three at the most. I promise. This piece will also feature the rare and elusive Bottom Spock.

This story could go on for quite a bit longer without them having their smokin' hot sex and I wouldn't care.  This was awesome and so sweet.  I love how Jim's still a little jittery and Spock's insanely patient.  They'll get to it eventually.  Until then, I'll devour each update with pleasure!  (So long as they at least "fork" some more.  Jim's reaction to that was hilarious!) ~ RK

The Jester by Cyberrat Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 19]
Summary:

Finished!

--------------

“Trust me, Milord. This Jester – he is not what he pretends to be. I can see it in those devious eyes of his; sometimes golden like the eyes of a beast, sometimes green with envy, sometimes brown as the mud he came crawling out off. They are eyes filled with deceit and betrayal. One moment he will be laughing and playing his lute, trying to amuse us with his silly, human antics; and the next moment he will turn and shove his dagger into your back in a jealous rage and bring anger and hate into our court. You can not allow him to marry the Prince, Milord. Trust me. Trust your brother, for he knows the ways of those savage humans.”

-------------

AU in the Middle Ages.

James Tiberius Kirk is a Jester, travelling between the kingdoms and living the free life he has always envisioned for himself. Nevertheless, he always comes back to his most favorite people: the Vulcans. And why would they not be his favorite? After all, their handsome Prince Spock is waiting there for him...

However, one should not make the mistake and underestimate him, just because he is the Jester...

Author's Response:

hellooo, thank you for your feedback :)

would've been too easy if the romance had been hidden until the end of time :D Let's see how the Jester will manage THAT one... kingdoms usually don't fall into your lap x3

till next time! I'm very happy, that you're enjoying this :D

Summary:

This is in answer to Ambient's challenge for a Sarek/Bones bonding that leads to a Kirk/Spock get together.

The story begins with an STXI twist on the TOS classic, Journey to Babel. Sarek and his party have arrived on the ship, but Bones questions their health after Starfleet send special instructions for callibrating their medical tricorders to account for (read: overlook) certain known abnormalities as a result of the trauma from losing an entire planet of their people.

Called upon by his people, just after having announced his retirement, to represent the Vulcan government in the talks concerning Coridan induction to the Federation, what happens when Bones' suspisions are correct and Sarek begins to manifest physical symptoms of his well-hid mental duress.

Confusion, questions of sexuality, intensely uncomfortable situations and several requests for brain bleach from the ship's replicator for the not quite yet friends Kirk and Spock.

Note: I am aware that another answer to this challenge is being authored by someone else, but the story is in German (not French as I had originally thought as was pointed out to me lol), which I don't read so if there ARE any repeated themes, it's purely unintentional as I have not the patience to copy and paste it into a translator. Normally, I wouldn't answer a challenge that's already had one submission, but I've had two people who are good friends of mine ask me to please answer this challenge and so I write this for them--you both know who you are.

Summary:

A SECOND HALF TO THIS STORY NOW INCLUDED!!

 Mistakes corrected = I KNOW it's O'zhesta!! Typos, hopefully, are banished!

Set after the Amok Time Mission; possibly an AU, if you think it has to be... McCoy makes an emergency call to Jim, in the middle of the night, on Spock's behalf - and this leads to Jim and Spock admitting their love for one another.

Beginnings by CatalenaMara Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 6]
Summary:

An AU fic inspired by and extremely loosely based on the 1980s Harve Bennett proposal for a Star Trek movie titled “The Academy Years”. Kirk, in his plebe year, is embroiled in a tempestuous relationship with the volatile Janice Lester and otherwise is completely focused on the upcoming Axanar mission.  Upperclassman Finnegan is doing his best to make Kirk’s life hell. Kirk’s life is complicated enough. Then he meets the only Vulcan at the academy, a man he finds absolutely fascinating - and runs headlong into the one remaining prejudice on Earth - prejudice against aliens.

Wow!  What an interesting take on Academy-verse!  Didn't expect the whole Carol & Gary thing, but Kirk's relationship with Janice (and her psychosis, by the way was executed so well!) worked beyond well.  Finnegan and company will always be asses.  And that scene where Kirk finds Spock is just intensely heartbreaking.  Good for Kirk for getting things to change in the Academy, too.  Definitely good work!  Glad I read this before going to work today.  (Especially like the details involving Gill, Garth, and Ruth.  Nice inclusions there!)  This was awesome! ~ RK

Well, this was incredibly enjoyable.  Been scoping out some good aftermath-of-the-film stuff, and this one is a very good one.  This one is made quite lovely by their innocent sweetness for each other.  And huzzah for "matchmakers" Uhura and McCoy! Good work! ~ RK



Author's Response:

Thank you so much! I'm so thrilled that you liked this. 

I feel like Uhura and McCoy end up in sickbay one night, in Leonard's office, with a bottle of whiskey between them, complaining about something-or-other Jim has done. Uhura says, "Have you seen the way he looks at Spock? Seriously." Bones would take another shot and wipe his mouth, and they vow to get the two idiots together because the flirting/pining/eyesex has reached ridiculous levels.
