Very nice! Of course they are flirting. If I#d have to make a guess I would say that Kirk spreaded this image of him being a ladies man so that he could live in peace with Spock. The crew of the Enterprise probably knows the truth, though, (at least Bones does). But they are all so loyal to their Captain and Spock (Some of them did steal the Enterprise to get Spock back, after all) that they'd never let the truth come out.
I really like your story.

I love this so much! The TOS Tribble episode is one of my favorite episodes - and DS9 did such a fantastic job paying homage to this classic episode. This "behind the scenes" fic is now my headcanon for Sisko and Dax during their time aboard the Enterprise. I LOVE the flirting and bantering between Spock and Kirk - it is so them and shows their relationship beautifully to Sisko and Dax. Love the nod to Kirk constantly staring at Spock's butt during TOS - seriously, he did it all the time! Thank you so much for this lovely read!

Muahaha. If Benjamin and Jadzia had been able to watch TOS on DVD, they wouldn't have been surprised at the flirting. Or at the relationship :). Very nicely done. I like that you didn't go the more obvious route by having your characters see Kirk and Spock kissing or groping each other. Instead you took the time to write nice flirty banter full of innnuendos and it was all the more enjoyable to read :). I loved Benjamin's double take when he first realize Spock was being playful. Hehehe. I love seeing perspectives from outsiders on K/S, especially when they're well done like that :). Oh, those lines from the "mock" interview were a nice idea. That answer would be very in character for Spock.
Spock petting tribbles is AWWW.
And of course Kirk looks at Spock's rear when he's bending over his console. We all do, why wouldn't he? Besides, I maintain Spock did it on purpose, as I see no logical reason for him to be bent over that thing most of the time instead of sitting on his perfectly sturdy chair and avoiding a good backache.
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! I'm surprised by the number of people who have watched all of TOS and still swear black and blue that K&S were 100% straight and not interested in each other romantically. But I'll bet that Benjamin & Jadzia would totally ship them! IKR? There's some scenes where he's looking into that science thingy for no real reason. I firmly believe that he's showing off his nice ass to the Captain!
