UKJess, It doesn't really matter how many times I have both read and listend to this story - each and every time I do my opinion that this is one of the SINGLE BEST TOS gen stories in the fandom - and that it is, in every respect, a classic, remains unchanged.  The writing is beyond first-rate -it's professional level. 

I absolutely pity any so-called fan of TOS fanfiction who would not read this because it isn't slash.  

I'm thrilled to see your work has been preserved here.  May I inquire about that other brilliantly written fic of your's "Fortune's Favorite Son"?  It would be a tragedy to lose that story so that future generations will not have the joy of reading it.  Won't you gift this archive with that one as well?

Lastly,  I realize that Lost and Found was written a long time ago and that probably are not even writing fanfic anymore.  However,  my dearest wish, and one in which I would seriously pay a very high amount of money to see would be a sequel story.  Why?  Because YOU have the vision and talent to understand that Kirk and the Enterprise will have a happy ending, but that there has to be a whole lot of time, patience, angst and pain to get there after they return to Earth.  Your readers are ready, willing, and DYING to take that journey with Kirk.    Who knows....Jim has a lot of healing left to do and there 's no telling where the relationships, particularly Kirk and Spock's will end up.  

Maybe if you give it some thought, the Muses will come a callin'.  Either way, alll the best, and a HUGE THANK YOU for having written a tale so superior that I have enjoyed it time and time again!

 



Author's Response:

Wow! I should really check back here more often.  Thanks so muuh for taking the time to review.  As for Fortune's Favoured Child - that's available on my own website as I reckon it's even less KS than this one which at best is K&S.

Reviewer: Romanse Signed

This is an interesting story premise, but I can tell you right away that the pace of story telling is too for me to enjoy.  I recommend that you slow down if you really want to end up with a quality story at the end of the day rather than accumulating a certain number of quick reviews.  Take your time.  Build your scenes, your character interaction and dialoge.  That's what this story deserves. 

Summary:

Kirk and Spock are sent on a suspicious mission to obtain a local plant from an unfamiliar planet. When things go wrong, Spock is forced to meld with Kirk. The consequences of that meld will change everything.

This is a story I very much enjoyed listening to for the backstory that so nicely tied into canon and the author's own interpretation of Kirk and Spock.  I absolutley adored the plot that involves Kirk being healed significantly from a very bad emotional trauma by the love of his loyal, aloof First Officer.  It is clear that Spock would go to the very depths of hell if it could bring peace to Jim and through it all, both of these men remain recognizable as the strong, smart Starfleet Officers that they are.  Once I started reading, I could not stop.  Thank you so much for sharing such a lovely story.

I COMPLETELY enjoyed this classic h/c story for the intensity of the h/c, the wonderfully executed plot, and the mastery you displayed over these characters in how they interacted with each other and to the dire cirumstances in which they found themselves.  I loved how McCoy was suppotive of not only Jim, but Spock as well. I'm always in pure heaven whenever I come across a writer who does an exceptional job of putting the hurt to TOS Kirk and really show that they understand this alpha-male character. 

I very much enjoyed the detailed, mature writing.  Frankly, I didn't want the story to end.  In my opinion, you did a GREAT job of concluding this story because you left enough for the future to make it not necessarily set in stone .    For Jim T Kirk, anything can happen and what you DID make clear is that Jim loves Spock, Spock loves Jim and they are willing to face whatever life dishes out together.

Oh noooo!  I failed to realize this was a WIP.  : (

Now I have no idea whether or not I invested emotionally in an abandoned story or if you are still writing it.  I truly hope you are going to give readers that ending because this story deserves it.

I soooo wanted answers  some key questions.  For example, you mention many times the word "trial" and in the context it strongly suggests a court proceeding, yet there has been no clarification of what he's been tried for.  The way it has been used many times does not suggest that you mean, "he's been through a tough time."

Sigh...I'll be more careful next time when selecting stories.

 



Author's Response:

See, this is where I fail. WIP? What does that mean? Because I really do not know. In any response. This is not an abandoned store, but it will take me longer than normal to come out with new chapters as I am in school and lack time. I have, however, started on the next chapter, but as I said, School does take alot of my time.

To answer your question, when I refer to the Trail, I did not mean that Kirk had been arrested or had been tried for anything. When I said he had been through alot, I meant that the Trail, through he wasn't on trail, had taken alot out of him. As a rape victim, it is in fact difficult to testify in front of the court, especially when the defense attorney is waiting to rip him apart. It forced Kirk to talk about something he does not want to admit had happened. Though I have not come out in said this in the story yet, I will tell it to you here. So if anyone does not want to see this spoiler, they should not read on. The trial did not go the way Kirk wanted it to go. The Man that had raped Kirk had gotten away with it, which goes  along with the fact that Kirk went through alot as he now knows that his rapist walks free. That alone is a thought that Kirk cannot live with.

Summary:

In response to the Prompt:  Starfleet needs these two tribes to call a truce on a 500 year devastating war but can't get them to agree except only to one thing: Jim Kirk. The two sides would fuck and cum into Jim and consider it as conquering the other tribe into submission.

And since you ask, yes, I am ashamed of myself.

Date: 03/15/2012 Title: Chapter 1: Broken Hearts and Broken Bonds

Sigh...THIS is the kind of story that absolutely shoots to the all-time top five in the ST fandom,  for H/C fics for this hard-core H/C addict. 

This is masterful writing that stands completely on its own quality.  In my opinion, its always best to allow others to experience the fic and feel emotional responses based solely on the qaulity of what has been written.  For me, this fic has packs an extremely high and powerful emotional punch because of the subtle, smart writing that come from profound depth, maturity, and understanding of these the characters.

There are not enough words to explain how awesome this story is, how much it totally rocks and how much the message of love and forgiveness is one that I'll never tire of reading.

My heart truly ached so much for Jim's suffering.  It was exquisitely done at both the emotional level with the severed bond, and at the physical when Jim was poisoned. In all cases, the comfort that healed Jim was just oh so satsifying and believable.  

There is nothing better than when an Angst goddess Supreme takes an Alpha male and TOTALLY Breaks.  Him. Down.      Of course, this is followed by the superb way in which the Angst goddess subsequently puts the man together again.  You did this beautifully here and then you I find that you did it again to the 10th power in your other story "Agony".  I'll be hard pressed to know how to praise that story so that's all I shall write in this review.   



Author's Response:

TYVM. This was my first long fic; I think I could do better now, but we'll let it stand on its own merits.

Superstar by CMM Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 14]
Summary:

This is in response to PortableIce's Dirty Fascination challenge, which is:

Summary:

During a research session on his human heritage, while in his second year in Starfleet, Spock accidently downloads a porn video that changes him into a nonstop horny machine: a pornography starring Jim Kirk (Under a porn name as to maintain his privacy) as the fuckable and loud bottom.

Thus, Spock becomes extremely fascinated with Jim and is addicted to watching pornography videos in which he stars in (always a bottom). He even buys a porn magazine, anonymously of course, that is a special edition on Jim with pictures articles, interviews, a free DVD of his latest project, and more. When Spock reads about his obsession being turned on by light skinned, dark haired and eyes, male aliens with at least two times more strength than humans, Spock's fantasies start delving into himself being to one (and the only one) fucking Jim in all of his videos.

By the time he's almost finished his last year as a cadet in Starfleet, a strange thing occurs: Jim drops out and disappears from the porn world. Spock greatly mourns this, until his first year of teaching, when he spots the man that was and still is the center of his sex fantasies stepping out of the shuttle from Iowa and joining Starfleet.

Will Spock finally get to satisfy his sexual fantasies and guck Jim? Or will Jim's determination to have a celibate life (must be mostly a personal reason) prevent such a thing from happening? Especially when Jim actually wants to have a serious, stable, healthy, and happy relationship for once in his life?

Please, in all sex scenes in which Jim is involved in, make him the bottom. Thank you to anybody who answers this prompt.

Here you go. Readers, please note: Jim's a porn star, so there is a LOT of sex, nothing too kinky but plenty of it. Avert ye eyes, oh censors.

This story was, in a word:  HOTTTTTTT!!!!

I loved the total originality of this plot and the superb execution of it.  I completely believed the premise that Jim was a porn star before attending Star Fleet.  In addition to such a unique and hot way that Jim comes into Spock's radar, the cherry on top was the wondeful little touch of angst when Jim discovers his vid on Spock's entertainment system.

This was great storytelling with some amazingly hot sex scenes.  Great job!

It sure would be nice if more authors mined the rich and wid-ranging variety of fairy tales to use as fanfic fodder.  So many fairy tales already have the elements that make for great fanfic:  angst, romance, conflict etc.  This adaptation for me, was pure magic.  I would have enjoyed seeing more of Bones in this story since Jim loved him enough to sacrifice for him.  Some conversation about Bone's life and welfare when he came out to treat Jim the second time would have been perfect and natural.  This is definitely my kind of storytelling and definitely a tale to enjoy more than once.

 

 



Author's Response:

TYVM. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Yes, I could have done more with Bones, but I was sort of focusing on Jim and Spock without too many distractions--and of course, there is always more that one could do with any story.

The picture is so captivating that I really must also add that I do think the poem is too short and thus lacking in sufficient detail to do the picture justice.  I would personally be delighted to see if your muses could inspire you to take a second look at the poem!

The manip was done by the talented Elfqueen, and I will certainly consider it. I had someone else mention the exact same thing....my muse is like that sometimes. Hopefully, something will come up. Thanks for the review.

Agony by CMM Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 301]
Summary:

Now Done!!! Happy Ending here!!!!

This is in response to 'Make This Have a Happy Ending' by vicktblueeyez. The challenge goes like this:

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 Starfleet 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 t’hy’la 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.

I hope this lets me work out some demons so I can go back to my happy stories. Here we go....

This story ALMOST toppled the one story that has been for me the number one story in the ST fandom for a few years now.  It was close, very close and I can certainly say this is my second favorite story in the fandom. 

I know of no other ST story so thoroughly deconstructs Jim Kirk emotionally and physically as this one does, and in the end, takes the reader on a completely slow, believable journey towards healing.  Seeing him battle cancer was not only brave writing but unique.  Jim sacrificed so much and it makes me wonder what Spock would sacrifice for Jim should Jim suffer a relapse.  Spock and Kirk's love went through the fire and came out like refined gold.  There can be no greater satisfying read than to take that trip under the hand of someone who has the maturity and elite writing skills to craft a tale so perfect and honest in the telling.   



Author's Response:

Let me guess--is number 1 "Take Refuge in What You Know?" I keep trying to topple that one but never quite can. Oh, well. I'll have to keep trying.

I'm so pleased that you enjoyed this story. Some of my fans did not because it wasn't very fluffy--but I want to try and keep stretching myself, so I'm pleased that it worked for you. I think after all this, Spock would stand by Jim no matter what. I hope so, certainly.

Empathy by Rubyhair Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstar [Reviews - 87]
Summary:

Jim has some very dark secrects from his past. Pike knows but he issues his challenge to join Starfleet anyway. Can Jim live up to Pike's belief in him? What happen's when he meets the only Vulcan teaching at the Academy?

Summary:

AU. Academy Fic. Jim's maternal bloodline is that of Federation alligned Humanoid race known as Veenans (Veena for singular), a peaceful, advanced race that are also heavily empathic. Because of their genetic evolution, some are even telekenetic. This species is uniguely united; seeing as all others as "brothers" and "sisters". Also, because of their genetic makeup, Veenans hardly, if ever, engage in sex with someone without a proper empathic bond to keep them stable.  One sign of a Veena is that their irises glow slightly when they are emotionally overwhelmed or excited. Veenu blood is strong in Jim, and after joining Starfleet, becomes infatuated with the Vulcan professor Spock. Due to Spock's half-Human heritage with a blend of Vulcan passions (albeit repressed), it appeals to Jim, who begins making an empathic bond with the Vulcan unknowingly. Spock finds Jim's company- as well as that of Uhura's -appealing. He, intially, sees Jim as nothing more than a friendly aqcuaintance, but overtime the Cadet's intelligence and friendly personality attracts him more and more. Eventual K/S. POINTS: Once Jim finds out he is unconsciously bonding with Spock, becomes horrified that Spock may not reciprocate, and tries to avoid the Vulcan in order to find a way to dissolve the bond. Spock becomes suspicious and won't take the hint to leave Jim alone. BONUS POINTS: Jim's mom is a sweetheart, and Jim confides in her his feelings with Spock, who then helps Jim come to accept what he feels. (Due to Winona being Veena, she is affectionate and close with her son, despite losing her husband at his birth.) BONUS POINTS: Before Spock realizes he's in love with Jim, Jim becomes slightly protective/possessive of Spock. Not violent- just somewhat defensive and territorial. Jim cannot help the primative instincts rising within him, and a few times confuses his friends, himself and Spock by the protective streak that he has over the Professor. PURE LOVE: If Spock's parents come for a Starfleet gala, and bring T'Pring and her family to visit as well. Jim does NOT like it, and gets paranoid/territorial of seeing T'Pring and Spock together.

Just getting started reading, but here's a small comment:  the line is "So you're a cadet, you're stunning..."   Not, "your'e studying".
