Chapter 1: Sudden Gravitational Collapse
@Ana - I understand there are places in the world where this sort of thing is ok and you won't get fired for having an affair with one of your students or for messing with their job placement or messing with them while they should be on their post doing their job - but this is Starfleet Academy and the Enterprise we are talking about, two specific people, not our parents or anybody else. Please, do not project.
And, no - with his history Abrams Spock wouldn't be a good bondmate to Kirk either, or anybody else ftm. He already cheated on his first wife T'Pring, with a student no less, as an academy instructor no less, as well as while he was the first officer. Who's to say he won't go down that road again? There are always people in lower positions who would follow Nuhura's example and put out for job benefits, after all it worked for her, didn't it? Who's to say that this time around he would turn them down? What would stop him? A sudden surge of professionality he doesn't have? Being linked to somebody - Abrams Spock doesn't care about that or else he wouldn't be with Nuhura. What else?
This fic Nuhura is 100% right to cling on and manipulate, that is the only way their "relationship" can work - he would just take a walk to somebody else's bunk otherwise.
The movie Nuhura better make sure he is no more than a beer buddy with anybody else on the ship, take up all of his free time and make sure he has no women working under him. On the other hand, now that Kirk is a captain, she may want to move on instead. He might even put her on the command track, better than Spock just getting her on the Enterprise.
Kirk on the other hand is better off staying away from both of them and quite frankly finding a new first officer who won't be picking ship crew based on them being involved and pressuring for it, and won't be randomly disappearing in the middle of a battle to save a planet just because he got a booty call.
