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....

You're a much better person than me. I would have had Jim die from leukemia and Spock sitting there wondering what would've been. But that's why you're the author and not me. Because while Spock seems remorseful, who knows how far that really will go. Maybe that's just me being cynical though. Honestly I wanted to see Jim a little bit more pissed at his crew.

 

All in all a good story but I don't know if I would've written it this way.

That's fair. Everyone sees these characters differently. There is no "right" answer.

Hi, yeah... I lurk on here more often than not, and this is going to sound really weird, but I'm a Biology major going into a Pre-Med of sorts. As a Doctor, McCoy would realize that as AB-, Jim is the universal receiver for human blood types. That means, Jim could receive any blood type ranging from O- to AB-. There would be no need for Bones to be worried about running low on AB- blood. If he could simply use another blood type. To what you were saying, McCoy would have to be low on every human blood type. However, I can't picture that happening on a starship as important as the Enterprise.

 

I know that that was an odd thing to focus on. But my Pre-Med self came raging out. Other than that one minor thing, I absolutely loved the fic! Spock's resolution was so adorable, and bringing Jim cheeseburgers was awesome.

 

Please don't take my medical/biology rant the wrong way, please!

Author's Response:

No, no, I was an English major and know nothing about blood (except that it makes me sick). I'll change the type; thanks.

Summary:

Another bonding fic where Spock doesn't know that he's bonded to Jim, while the captain suffers through it.  Spans through ST: 2009 and Into Darkness.

If I don't make you cry.  I've done a horrible job.  Let's hope I did good then.  =)

Honestly, fracturing the plot made no sense to me. I was lost the entire time. If this was in Abrams Universe, why was Amanda still alive? And Sybok? Where did he come from, because he was exiled for wanting to show emotion. I can't buy that the Vulcans would allow him back in. I also couldn't buy Amanda Greyson turning her back on her son. TOS!Amanda still loved him and cared for him even when Spock refused to do the blood transfusion that would save Sarek. Sure, she was upset, but she never treated him like trash.

 

I know this sounds harsh, and I'm really not trying to be. I just wanted to honestly let you know how I found this story to be. Like I said, I'm sorry, but I just couldn't buy it. It felt too out of character on all parts.
