A Second Chance - by ayesakara
He knows this feeling, knows that this emotion, this sense of guilt he feels is an inherent human trait. Yet another shortcoming attributed to the deficiencies in his impure, hybrid nature. For there is no word for guilt in modern Vulcan. If he were a full Vulcan, he would not be feeling guilt. Such an emotional response would be deemed illogical. If he were a full Vulcan, he would not have made such a grave error, so as to be deemed guilty in the first place. If he were a full Vulcan, his control would never have slipped. He would never have allowed the bond to be formed this way.

Yes, there are degrees of guilt and Spock's is the worst kind imaginable.

The incident on Antara showed him the one lone thing that could finally ease his pain. A link, a true warrior bond, with a friend, a brother, with someone who could be even more. But the bond was formed without his intended's permission. Given a choice, Spock does not think Jim would have opted for this situation. Captain Kirk enjoys the company of females. Spock knows that, the whole ship knows that. The number of times the captain has flirted with Nyota is testament to where his preferences lie. He could not have possibly chosen Spock of his own accord, no matter how deep their friendship, their loyalty, their regard for each other. Not him, the blue-eyed, golden boy of Starfleet.

In his weakened state, in his greed, his ardent, aching hunger for a touch, any touch, Spock allowed this bond to form. The fact that he feels... contentment, harmony, pleasure, happiness in Jim's presence, in opening up his mind to the bond, proves he is guilty. He does not deserve any of this. He has not earned the bond.

exclamation (not an explanation) - by TheWriter2
When Spock looks at himself in the mirror two hours later, he finds it hard to recognize himself. Although his face has not changed, he is startled by the fake human eyebrows McCoy has attached to his face. Turning his head experimentally, Spock briefly finds himself missing his pointed ears as they hide under a pair of synthetic rounded tips.

As Spock inspects his new features, he begins to see more and more of his mother in himself and less of Sarek.

And for the first time since he began his schooling, Spock is pleased in his human features.

Nyota only allows him a moment more in front of the mirror before dragging him back to the seat before McCoy’s desk. “Okay,” she says, placing her hands on his shoulders, “you look considerably less Vulcan now, but I still want to do something about this hair.”

“What is wrong with my hair?” Spock asks as Nyota runs her fingers through it.

“Well there’s nothing wrong with it, per say,” she informs him, “but no one on Earth has worn their hair like this in centuries. You need something more updated.”

Spock considers this. “What do you suggest?”

He catches Nyota’s dangerous grin in the mirror. “I’m so glad you asked.”

“Whatever it is you want to know, I’m not telling you,” he blurted, fighting to summon anger as she tilted her head to regard him, icy digits of one hand trailing thoughtfully along his jawline.

“Human male,” she said, and her voice sounded a little dreamy.

“As a matter of fact, yes, but trust me you have no idea who you’re dealing with here. Sure, okay, maybe I don’t have black ops training like some people, or eighteen knives in my hair, but that doesn’t mean I can’t take care of myself in a fight, you know you’re hardly the first Wr—”

“Hush, human male,” the queen said, and dug her fingers into his face, holding it still. He tried to jerk away from her grip but there was suddenly a seriously nasty throbbing inside his skull and he found himself staring directly at her as she—there was no other word for it—snuffled at him, making a weird low appreciative sound in the back of her throat, pressing her nose into the skin of his cheek, tickling his ear, making his skin crawl.

“Unbelievable, this is just perfect, are you—are you smelling me? What the—”

Annie D: Not Part of the Plan
Castiel's spent most of his adult life keeping his head down and staying out of trouble. This is a deliberate choice on his part, because as a cousin of the King, he'd rather stay unimportant and forgotten. This changes abruptly when King Michael decides that he has a better use for Castiel: he is to be wed to a noble member of the neighboring Republic, as part of an agreement between their two nations. Castiel knows he has to obey, but that doesn't mean he won't rebel in what small ways he can. Unexpectedly, his actions end up having far-reaching consequences.

In which Cas has a one night stand with Dean to lose his virginity before his arranged marriage, then discovers he's engaged to Sam (oops), then Sam runs away so Cas marries Dean to avoid a scandal... and THEN things get complicated! Gorgeous slow burn romance with plenty of plot and even more tropes.

Paper Tigers - by ThereBeWhalesHere
In the seats behind him, a host of stuffy cultural and military advisors trade final notes of caution, but Jim has heard quite enough notes of caution by now, after months preparing for the impending negotiation. He has been on the receiving end of his father’s serious scowl, his mother’s concerned, tight smile. He has sat through the royal advisors’ hours of etiquette training, and he swears he knows by now.

He knows that Vulcans can be unpredictable. They’re pure passion, pure will, pure fire, the once-enemy of everything Jim and his family holds dear, and any offence could make them rebuke an alliance with Earth forever. Given the machines of war Vulcans have at their disposal, the Terrans need this alliance, or at least this friendship. The shaky armistice of 30 years ago is no longer enough.

So Jim has been told to remain out of the way, to observe and not participate in the upcoming talks. He understands, for the most part. He’s still only 27, and he can be full of fire himself. Even bringing Jim along is a risk, according to his brother the crown prince.

Never mind that Jim is Earth’s second son, or that he has spent his whole life observing negotiations. Never mind that he thinks he might know how to handle a couple of hot-headed extraterrestrials after that run-in with the Tellarites last year. But when it comes down to it, his parents are king and queen of the most influential planet in the quadrant, and even Jim has to listen to them sometimes. Besides, they want this to be his first step into a new role: Earth’s first official ambassador to Vulcan since the end of their war 30 years ago.

Provided this all goes well.

notboldly: Frozen Memories [1/18]
“Our technology…you do not want us to use it. It will not be pleasant.”

“Damn. Fun’s over, then?”

Yulc didn’t react to that one except to gesture over his shoulder, and a nameless guard with a foul stench slipped a small cylinder into his extended hand. Jim watched impassively.

“This is our finest torture device, Captain. It manipulates brain waves…in any way we choose.”

Jim still didn’t say anything, although he had a good idea of what they were leading up to.

Yulc continued in an almost friendly voice.

“You see, there are many species that aren’t affected by torture—mind over matter, or so they say. Most inconvenient. This device was designed for them.”

Jim really, really didn’t like where this was going.

“Take your Mister Spock, for example. As a Vulcan, the body is only a house for the mind…but this device can turn the mind into mush, a man into a permanent child, with no ability but to drool or cry. Useless, but damned entertaining, as you might imagine.”

Jim swallowed blood, but said nothing. Yulc smiled at him for the first time, and it was absolutely terrifying.

notboldly: Good Advice [1/3]
“You offered to aid me in securing a mate, correct?”

She wondered what she could say to that—she had offered, done more than that, even.

“Yes, but…why him?” Of all the people on-board, why Captain Kirk? She knew he was intelligent—nobody could fake it for that long—but he was also stubborn and irrational and dangerous to everyone they had ever encountered on any mission. The fact that he had survived the past year was sheer luck, and she had no idea why Spock would be interested in someone so painfully flawed.

“I…am not certain.” Nyota opened her mouth to question further, but Spock found the answer inside himself before she could. “I find an unfamiliar sensation arises whenever he is near,” he finally explained, pressing a hand to his abdomen, right over his heart.

“Unfamiliar?” She repeated slowly, and Spock looked up at her, eyes almost pleading.

“Warm.” She knew what that meant to him—Spock had told her, once, that he hadn’t been warm since arriving on Earth, and with Vulcan gone, that desert heat in those familiar surroundings was now completely out of his reach. But she knew something else, because she wasn’t a fool, and because she was a healthy woman; she’d bet anything that the reason he couldn’t identify that warm feeling was because he had only one failed sexual experience behind him, and lust was something that required some getting used to. She knew, because these things happened around Kirk, and usually, it led people into folly. He wasn’t a bad man, not really—but Kirk was selfish and arrogant, and Nyota had known more than a few friends, male and female and non-gendered, who had forgotten that important fact when they’d fallen in love with him. They’d been let down in the end.

She couldn’t let that happen to Spock. Couldn’t. He didn’t even understand what “tomcat” meant—she couldn’t let him get his heart broken, and she certainly couldn’t help him do it.

But she had offered, and so she smiled, the expression brittle.

“I’ll help you, Spock. I promise.”

Spock looked relieved, and she hoped that he’d forgive her in the end for helping him in every way except the one he wanted.

Divergence - by 13empress
Spock shivered. Cold seeped into his limbs. His breathing was excessively loud in the dark space, like a mechanical noise rather than that of a living creature. He estimated that unless he received outer garments within the hour, he was likely to begin to suffer the effects of exposure to the chill of his cell. Tucking his chin between his knees and wrapping his arms around his legs, Spock curled up tightly to preserve body heat. He estimated that it had been over three standard hours since his arrival.

Suddenly, light spilled into his room from above, which would have been blinding if he had been directly underneath after so much time in darkness. The hatch for his cell was dragged open without warning. His captors were back. Spock scrambled to his feet, feeling an acute sense of vertigo flash through him. Something hit the ground with a sodden thump followed by a humanoid figure. He took note of his new companion's features in the clinical light – light hair, skin with a faint pink hue, biopolymer clothing: Terran human, most likely – before the hatch was closed with a loud clang.

In the darkness, Spock got down onto his hands and knees, feeling his way across the cold floor till his hand curled into something soft, and most importantly warm. With a stifled whimper of relief, he pulled at the cloth, dislodging it from underneath his new companion and wrapping part of it around himself.

There was a sound of distress from the stranger, followed by heavy panicked gasps for air. Spock froze, uncertain what he should do. Mother said that humans instinctually craved touch as a biological imperative in times of distress or injury, especially young humans. The science behind it was rather odd but proven to be true: humans who had prolonged physical contact produced more serotonin and dopamine, two chemicals that created a sense of well-being in humans. Spock steeled himself, crawled closer and reached blindly in the darkness.
