This was just too good to be a one-shot!  Please write a sequel where Bones not only gets Jim out, but also Spock.  Loved it and it's going in my faves even as I write!

Where Home Really Is by Dracavia Rated: Mature Content (Teen) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 6]
Summary:

People often say they're going home for the holidays, but sometimes home isn't about a place, it's about people. This year Jim Kirk learns just how true that really is.


ksadvent2011 Prompt: Spock is anonymously given a cat for Christmas. Seeing Spock pet it and play with it is the most adorable thing Jim's ever seen.

I was so engrossed in this story that I didn't even realize that I'd come to the end until I was gasping like a fish out of water with no 'next' button to push.  My confusion turned to dismay when I remembered there were only two chapters and I had come to the end of the line.  Please take pity on a poor old fan and either extend this story or write a sequel (hell, why stop at one . . . I'd be euphoric for a series!).  Thank you for sharing.

Oh Holy Night by tprillahfiction Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 6]
Summary: The crew of the Enterprise beams down to the Shore Leave Planet where they create a wonderful holiday celebration. After the party, nearly everyone pairs off with someone special. Jim Kirk puts in a request to the guardians to spend a night with his first officer (or at least, a simulated version). Written in response to a prompt for K/S Advent 2011 on livejournal.

Author's note: In order for this fic to make much sense, it is helpful to have seen the Star Trek TOS ep: "Shore Leave" . Takes place three years after this ep.

The Legend of the Sentinel by lilusayshello Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 3]
Summary:

Summary: One year after the Narada Incident the Enterprise is caught in an unknown energy wave that activates a long dormant gene from Earth's past. The resulting events that transpire change the very structure of the Federation and its future.

Fandoms: Star Trek XI/The Sentinel Fusion

Pairings: Kirk/Spock, McCoy/Chekov, Uhura/Scotty

Overall Warnings: Alternate Universe, light BDSM themes, violence, language, homophobia, xenophobia, sexually explicit scenes between m/m and f/m pairings.

Spoilers: To error on the side of caution the entire plot of Star Trek XI.

Author's Notes: So I've been reading some very good fanfics lately that are a fusion of The Sentinel and other fandoms. One of my favorites is a series called The Sentinels of Atlantis by Keira Marcos. Now this story is in no way related to Keira's, but it is inspired by her fusion of The Sentinel with another fandom.

Disclaimer: I do not own The Sentinel or Star Trek franchise, nor do I make any profits from these writings.

Considering Jim's allergies, it wouldn't have been so funny if Spock had a bad reaction and also, not everyone does a happy drunk; McCoy would be in very deep doodoo and still should for keeping possible intoxicants a secret.  I'm probably giving the impression that I didn't like the story; on the contrary, I loved it!  Spock was very sweet and vulnerable and Jim was enderingly supportive.  I know you said it was pre-slash, but a midnight kiss (even chaste) would have been the perfect way to ring in the new year.  This is going onto my fave list, thank you for sharing!



Author's Response:

Glad you liked it! Yeah, McCoy was a bit unprofessional there, but if it makes you feel better I'm sure Kirk (and Spock) wouldn't let him get away with it. :)

I'm sure this is nitpicking, but I think you may want to rearrange this phrase, "Either we’re going down or they are."  Wouldn't it sound better to have 'they' as the first choice to go down and 'we' as the last resort?  "Either they're going down or we are?"  Suggestion aside, I'm really enjoying this story and Uhura and McCoy's relationship change . . . WOW!  Can't wait for Jim and Spock's own bond to bud - I'm sure anyone else in a room with them would notice the sparks they're throwing off!



Author's Response:

I actually took it directly from the movie, word for word. Don't worry, though. I don't have a beta, so constructive criticism is really apprciated! Thank you!

Unwittingly Yours by CommUnit Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstar [Reviews - 19]
Summary:

Saw this prompt by Juni and couldn’t resist the thought of Spock in a skimpy outfit for Jim’s unknowing eyes. Enjoy!!

Summary: Ok, so let’s mix ST with some good old harlequins! Kirk is a Captain of the Enterprise, but he and Spock never met. Not at the Academy, not later – never. Of course Kirk heard about the super intelligent Vulcan First Officer, but didn’t pay attention to that.

Then Pike is contacting him, asking him for help in rescuing his crew (Spock included) who were kidnapped by the Orion Slavers during an away mission. Kirk of course agrees and leads a rescue team (like there would be any doubt about it). They storm the place and Jim is totally mesmerized by the sight of a beautiful, sexy Vulcan in a very skimpy harem outfit. The crew is rescued and the Enterprise is on the way to return them to Pike’s ship and during that time Kirk totally falls in love with Spock (who is totally NOT what Jim expected) and starts to plot how to keep him on the Enterprise and for himself.

Bonus points if Jim was so co confused by Spock appearance and behaviour because he only saw Spock’s very old photo from the Academy files (like Spock was 17, gawky teenager with glasses and looked like a classic nerd) and heard that the Vulcan has no sense of humour, personality, is boring, focused only on science etc.

Super bonus points if Kirk has to fight for Spock with someone from Pike’s ship who had hots for the Vulcan for a very long time

I know that it was misunderstandings on both parts, but I can't help feeling a sense of vindication for Spock when Jim finds out about 'the incident.'  I can't even imagine how Spock would feel if he has to go back to that planet and face his rapist.  How far along does he have to be before a baby bump shows?  As thin as he is, I don't imagine very far and what if Jim forces a confrontation?  Oh, please hurry with an update!

Reviewer: Arcadii Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 10/27/2012 Title: Chapter 10: Chapter 10

I want to assure you that I will still wait and watch for your updates no matter how long between!  It looks like government bureaucracy works as efficiently in the future as it does now, but it did facilitate in proving to Spock that Sarek still cared for him and will care for his unborn.  Loved the circle of family provided by Selek and Sarek and the baby making it's presence known as well - nice touch!

The more involved this becomes, the more I love it!  I hope that the crew finds out the truth and everyone suffers a substantial load of guilt for the way they've treated one of their own.  It would almost serve Kirk right if he didn't find out about his child until he was grown.  Sorry about the vengeance kick, but I don't like to see injustice go unpunished; you don't even want to know what I've got pictured for the rapist and his pals!

As heartbreaking as everything else has been, this chapter brought tears to my eyes when Jim found out the reasoning behind Spock's disappearance and how his behaviour made it worse. There's been so much hurt, but perhaps the baby can be a bridge to forgiveness. I hope when he/she is born, it has Jim's eyes and Spock's ears. Thanks for sharing and look forward to next!

Yay, a new update!  How long is a Vulcan/Human gestation?  Is Jim going to be back and able to mend his relationship with Spock before the birth or will he arrive back after the fact?  And what is Sarek going to say when he finds out?  Can't wait for next!

You're back, YIPEE!  I feel so bad for Spock having to face his attackers, but especially now.  Maybe risking his career and ship for Spock will be enough visible proof for Jim to be forgiven.  Maybe Uhura, Scotty, Sulu and Chekov can stage a jail break and transport the bastards into the nearest sun. :)   I love this story so much and am very glad that you're continuing it!

The Illusion of Something More by TDazz Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 204]
Summary:

Spock's years as a cadet were the worst of his life-- he spent those years homesick, lonely, uncertain if he had made the right decision, terrified that his father would never forgive his choices. The only bright spot came from an unlikely source-- a virtual companion who would tell him anything he wanted to hear for 75 credits an hour.

Jim was too young to be on his own. He was too young to have his own apartment, too young to hold down most jobs. Certainly too young to be selling his services in the sex industry, but no harm done. None of it was real. At least, not until a homesick Vulcan looking for companionship stumbled onto the channel.

What ensued was an addictive, steamy relationship where the lines between fantasy and reality were sometimes blurred beyond recognition. Some parts were painfully real, including the distance that separated them. There was no overcoming that.

At least, not until two weeks into the Enterprise's first five-year mission, Captain Kirk recognizes his First Officer as the client he had fallen in love with when he was just a rebellious teenager. Then it was just an illusion, but now it could be something more.
