Seclusion A-1 by PaintedBird Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 104]
Summary:

In a dark AU, Ambassador Sarek had long warned the Federation Council of the erosion of his culture by human contact and of the risk that certain groups would lead Vulcan out of the Federation, setting off Vulcan passions that had not been displayed for thousands of years.  No one listened and now the people of Earth are paying for that oversight.

But now as Jim Kirk faces his former First Officer and spouse for the first time since Spock left him and the Enterprise to unite with the Vulcan forces, he wonders how far he must go to force the vital military information Spock knows out of the Vulcan.  Can he do what he must, even though he still has feelings for Spock?  Or will forces he cannot control destroy them both?

Summary:

Now Complete!

This is a collaborative answer to T'Lara's K/S West Side Story challenge, done in the spirit of a round robin between the co-authors listed above.

Jim and his brother Sam came to Tarsus IV, a booming Federation industrial colony, to earn a year's worth of fast credits in the planet's booming economy. Unfotunately, the settlers find themselves caught in the middle of political peril as the Federation fights a coo carried out by the colony's assistant director, Kodos, and the Klingon Empire.

It's a hard knock life on the colony, but things get even more difficult for the Kirk brothers' and their gang when a group of Vulcan refugees begin encroaching on their territory. Having distanced himself from the gang in favor of honest work, Jim finds himself pulled back into his brother's world when he asks for Jim's help in dealing with the Vulcan menace, threatening to ruin his gang's hard won gains. What Jim least expected to find, in the face of Sybok's band of refugee Vulcans, was love at first sight.

See how the story unfolds.

For T'Lara, whom we all love and care for. We hope this brings a smile to your face and a spring to your step. <3
