We all love that green, v-neck wrap tunic (with rank on the sleeves, not shoulders) that only Jim Kirk can make look butch. Admit it. You love that tunic. You watch episodes of original Trek just for that tunic, and secretly hope that they recreate it in the next film, if only for a moment. But who else loves Jim wearing that tunic?

This is shameless worship of the wrap tunic. You can make it a 5-and-1, poem, drabble, whatever. I just wanna know the myriad ways that Jim makes that tunic look GOOD, and who amongst the crew agrees.

Extra points if someone notes that Kirk is the only captain who wears this variation on the standard uniform tunic and wonders why. More points if another person can answer why.

A million points if you can make Jim hesitant to wear it at first but completely sold on it when the sheer SEXY of it drives a certain Vulcan science officer to distraction.

We have seen how the Big 3 are close. I would like to see a story with the following requirements:

  1. Kirk/Spock/McCoy either in a friendship, relationsip (K/S, K/M, or S/M) or a threesome. 
  2. Doesn't matter if it's TOS or Abrams universe.
  3. Jim and Spock have an argument to end all arguments and say hurtful things to each other.
  4. Both of them are deeply hurt and run to their friend/lover Bones for comfort.
  5. Jim and Spock must reslove this. How Bones does it is up to you.
  6. BONUS if Jim cries himself to sleep in Bones' arms and the good doctor carries him to bed.
  7. BONUS if Spock cries in Bones' arms as well.
  8. BONUS if at some point they cry to a point where Bones has to sedate them.
  9. BONUS if they reward Bones for helping them.

Kirk and Spock have a one-night stand (Bottom!Kirk is feisty and Spock loves it.)
A couple months later Kirk finds out he's pregnant with Spock's baby. (mechanics don't matter, you can decide how or ignore the physiology entirely-i'm not picky)
He tells Spock and they get together, and Spock loves seeing Kirk all preggers and can't keep his hands off him.
Bonus points for pregnant sex.
Extra Super Bonus Points if there's some well-meaning ribbing from Bones and Uhura.

"Commander," Kirk said, "did you just slap my ass?"

Why, yes, he did, and happened in a public place in front of at least one other person (Spock is allowed to deny it, though, if you want to go that route)

Bonus Points if:

-Bones makes an extended appearance

-It happens while on duty

-It happens before Kirk and Spock are in a romantic relationship

Super-duper bonus points to anyone who can pull this off without Spock being under the influence of a mind altering substance or consciousness.

Challenge: Make this sad prompt have a happy ending. (not my prompt, belongs to anon at the kink meme)

Difficulty: Very

Prompt: Kirk/character of anon's choice are in a relationship the whole crew knows about and accepts. Then, Kirk gets top!secret-super!classified orders from stafleet basically forcing him to seduce a traitor/spy to get information for starfleet. [OR Kirk's orders force him to gain trust from the traitor/spy, so Kirk is all friendly and the traitor/spy takes advantage of Kirk.] Kirk follows orders/is forced but he's horrified, disgusted, and seriously messed up mentally by the encounter. Instead of comforting him or trying to understand Kirk's side, his significant other dumps him for cheating and the crew blames/is nasty to Kirk, since they aren't privy to starfleet's orders. Much angst ensues!

Keyword: Redemption

I've seen many takes on this prompt, all seeming to end sad which is why I haven't read them. Sad as in a broken Kirk, a broken relationship and K/S not getting back together. Mostly because Spock never found out...or he did but it was too late (Kirk ended up with Bones). I find it interesting that so many think a happy ending cannot be done. Kirk didn't believe in no-win scenarios and he didn't settle for the impossible. Instead of thinking in the box, he not only thought outside of the box but reshaped it. Saying something couldn't be done made him want to do whatever it was, even more. Yet, many feel that this prompt can only end in one way, heartbreak and it can only be written if the characters were extremely ooc. I think that is BS. A good author can make one believe in anything. They can take something old, already done and reshape it. The challenge here is to reshape this prompt and for that, you have to have the Kirk mentality and be as equally stubborn.

Stuff I would like to see but not required:

-A groveling and tortured Spock. Tortured as in self loathing. Kirk being all "fuck u, you didn't trust me, abandoned me, don't talk to me" and Spock maybe falling to his knees crying? "I have wronged you thyla in ways you/I cannot imagine. I'm so sorry." 

-Super awesome dramatic make up sex somewhere down the line is mandatory. Pretty please?

-Spock has to find out somehow. Kirk left and Spock is clearing the Captain's computer maybe? Kirk thinking his hacker skills is all that leaves the file there thinking it won't be found? Maybe Spock overhears a secret conversation from Starfleet officials? Maybe Spock and crew are on an away mission some angry person is all "I'll never forgive him for using me for information! I thought he loved me but he was only pretending to follow orders!" Spock, "What orders?" Angry person, "Oh you didn't know?"

-Big time angst. Things like K/S seeing each other from across the room. Accidental touching. Something with big time tension.

All is forgiven and it ends HAPPILY aka with Kirk/Spock together.

How to make it happy: To me, there are many steps for this to end happily. It has to start with the assignment and the misunderstanding. XI Kirk has a past seemingly of not being able to settle. This could be used. I prefer him not to cheat but get caught in an compromising position that looks like it. A break up happens and Spock shuts down. After all he's been through, why not shut down? Glares, gossip, avoidance and no one to believe. Fed up, Kirk leaves. He's bitter, depressed, still in love and lonely. Highly resentful towards Starfleet. Spock, Uhura, McCoy or someone finds out about assignment and is plagued with guilt. Finds Kirk yet Kirk has built walls. He doesn't want to listen or even be bothered. That's where everything slows down. Maybe he comes back to the ship. The crew is sorry but they have lost Kirk's trust. He is detached and doesn't get close to him. After all, how could his friends think he's still a 'man whore' or whatever. A slow building of trust, forgiveness and ultimately, a rekindling of a relationship.

I have seen several stories with alternate universe slave Jim/Spock situations? 

What would happen is “present” Jim and Spock from Abrams universe found themselves on planet Vulcan, waaaaaay in the past.  Say before the whole logic thing?  Jim, blonde haired blue eyed would be a rather exotic creature to the locals.  And his First Officer?  Well, they’re not exactly friendly with one another.  And it’s going to take time, read at least a year and a half, before rescue is made in the manner of your choice, I’m thinking space storm combined with whatever planet phenomena but your choice really. 

Keep in mind!!! Vulcans are desert dwellers, make these past version of a civilized race tribal and nomadic, Spock might not like the new living standards but he’s going to be better equipped than his Captain.  Said Captain is not going to be thrilled with the fact that but smart enough to know he needs to rely on Spock. 

At some point Jim will be captured and carted off and Spock will not have a timely rescue, how long is up the author.  At some point Spock will have to fight for Jim, poor little human tied to a post as a ready prize for the winner, may be provocative, hell he doesn’t even have to be facing the fight but must be able to at least hear it.  Clothing optional. 

Don’t make Jim completely helpless against the Vulcans.  Give him some credit he’s a sneaky bastard and knows better than to go toe to toe with them in a fair fight.

Summary: After particularly harrowing missions, Jim and Spock seek solace in each other's arms. By mutual unspoken consent, they never speak of those stolen moments.
