Star Trek: Long Live by cosmic_llin
Summary: Long live all the magic we made.
Reccer's Notes: When was the last time you saw a vid that was over five minutes long and every last second was an unalloyed delight? I groan every time I see a vid set to Long Live, because whatever the story of the vid is, it's never as epic as that song demands... except this one. Star Trek can hold up all five minutes of that song without breaking a sweat. The structure cuts straight to the heart of Star Trek: it's all about the connections between people. Some of the parallels are unexpected, and some are exactly what you're waiting for. It's so satisfying, and it makes me want to cry and smile at the same time.

Star Trek AOS: an upbeat kind of dirge, by screamlet

If it had been her who died in the destruction of Vulcan.
She thinks about it, sometimes, when she can't sleep at night.


AU: If Sarek had died in the destruction of Vulcan, but Amanda survived.
Reccer's Notes: screamlet takes Amanda Grayson, a women we saw all of three minutes of in the movie, and turns her into a real person, instantly recognizable from the first sentence, then adds in the rest of the crew: Spock barely holding it together, Winona flirty and unpredictable and like Jim but not, Jim in over his head but holding it together so well you can barely tell from the outside, Pike beset on all sides while learning to walk again, Uhura dignified and compassionate and star-struck, and it's just, life goes on even in the middle of your grief and your anger, and Amanda's plowing straight through it all, heart-broken and determined to get to work and live the rest of her life starting immediately.

Star Trek AOS: Ugh, by yeaka
Summary: Sex pollen confuses the fluffverse with the smutverse, but unfortunately, Jim's allergic.
Reccer's Notes: Sex pollen's not all fun and games, sometimes it's runny noses. I like the glimpses we get of the usual sex pollen shenanigans, and then Jim, sneezy and grumpy and having to be responsible and worry about things like consent and infidelity. It puts the usual shenanigans into perspective, but in a light-hearted way.

Star Trek AOS: Affogato, by reapersun {fancomic}
Summary: Kirk and Spock (and the rest of the gang) work in a coffee shop.
Reccer's Notes: This is the ultimate in alternative professions because Spock's human in this one. Also, a barista. I love reapersun's art, and this flirty, brassy Jim Kirk is so pretty with his big, blue eyes and tight shirts. Reading this on Pillowfort is a bit of a pain because you have to click through to see each page, but it's worth it to see Jim flirting with everyone in sight and nearly making Spock explode with jealousy.

This is part of a larger crossover series with characters from Harry Potter, Hannibal, and Sherlock, so if you like this, or those, check out the rest of the series. It starts with Macchiato [link:], which is Hannigram, or you can just find the pairing you're interested in on the artist's comics masterlist [link:].

Star Trek AOS: How Many Roads? or, 27 Times Jim Kirk Hit On Nyota Uhura, by Deastar
Summary: After the bar fight, Nyota thinks to herself that if this is what being hit on by Jim Kirk leads to, she's very glad she's never going to have to see him again.
Reccer's Notes: I'm not crying. I'm just...temporarily weeping.

This fic gets me every time. Nyota and Jim's life-long friendship is filled with flirting, mutual respect, and Jim Kirk being a pig (with morals), and the payoff is painful but excellent. Just tears...tears, on the side of my face. Every time.

Star Trek AOS: Project Friendship, by Janice_Lester
Summary: Believing that friendships will improve his quality of life, Spock logically determines to develop some. He encounters difficulties, particularly with Doctor McCoy.
Reccer's Notes: I love Spock and his 75% success rate on friendship. His approach is analytical, but still so sweet and giving.

Star Trek AOS: All the Night's Magic, by kyliselle
Summary: Sent to Savannah, Georgia for his Academy internship, Spock discovers that the sleepy southern city has hidden secrets - particularly when it comes to his host's mysterious ward, James Kirk.
Reccer's Notes: A sexy, supernatural romance with wonderful atmosphere and a bratty Spock who's in trouble up to his pointy little ears.

Star Trek AOS: Kitty Kirk, by lalazee
Summary: Kirk was turned into a cat, and now he's been turned back. Mostly.
Reccer's Notes: Anyone who's ever associated with a cat knows exactly what's going on here, and it's equal parts hilarious, frustrating, and sweet as hell.

Star Trek: you will see what it is to be overcome, by magneticwave
Summary: What kind of an idiot would try to explain magic to a Vulcan.
Reccer's Notes: This isn't Star Trek does Hogwarts. This is Captain James T. Kirk, Space Wizard! Like Jim, the style is breezy, yet secretly dire at the same time. The prose is deft and athletic, and I was continually in awe of all the things it was doing. And then there's Jim, of course, charming and reckless, just cruising through life and avoiding all his problems until they flip his brains inside out at which point he still doesn't want to deal with them. Spock, meanwhile, has turned the Spock up to eleven and is deliciously tense and distant right up until he explodes into a forest fire of feelings. So basically business as usual, only with magic.

Star Trek reboot: 6 times Jim didn't talk about Tarsus IV and the 2 times he had to by Sloth
Reccer's Notes: There's a decent amount of fic about what Tarsus IV might have looked like in the Reboot universe, and this one was one of my favorites. Powerful, with a lot of punch packed into each scene. This is about how Jim deals with what he survived.

(For those of you who are not fans of TOS, when Kirk was a youth, he lived for a while on a colony called Tarsus IV, which had an extremely severe famine and didn't call for help for reasons that are unclear. The governor, Kodos, decided to save the people he thought deserved to live by killing the rest so there would be fewer mouths to feed. Kirk was one of the people he saved. When rescue arrived, Kodos escaped and deleted records so that nobody knew what he looked like and started a new life.)

Warnings for, well, everything you might expect with a Tarsus IV fic.

(Star Trek Reboot) The Bond - WhatIfImaMermaid
The one where Spock gets amnesia and thinks he & Kirk are married (bonded). Does get iffy on consent because Kirk lets the assumption go on waaaay too long, but the author seems well-aware of it and plants the naysayers/supporters in line with that, plus Kirk's mindset. Mainly there for the cute and funny, plus I crack up that the angst could've been solved if someone just flat out asked the obvious question: "When did you develop feelings for me?" But this being FIC, they do not.

(Star Trek Reboot) A Hell of His Making - obsidienne
The one where they bonded during the bridge fight, and Spock is self-flagellating like whoa. (But of course Kirk has to be emotionally whumped, too, because some things stay constant, I guess.)

Star Trek AOS: The Most Human, by Amatara
Summary: After Kirk and McCoy extend an unexpected invitation, Spock struggles to communicate his desires, only to find that he has underestimated both his friends and himself.

Or: These days, Spock rarely thinks of himself as an alien, but fitting in can still be a challenge. Especially when the needs of the many sometimes seem so incompatible with his own.
Reccer's Notes: I really feel for Spock here; he wants something he doesn't know how to ask for, but Jim and Bones are kind and patient, and keep asking questions until they find one Spock can answer. Really lovely and sweet, and it pays a gratifying amount of attention to consent and making sure everybody is enjoying themselves.

Star Trek (AOS): the Reboot series by Seperis
Summary: "Spock. Just say 'I don't trust Starfleet not to mess up the only captain in the fleet who I can train up to my expectations and enjoys running into danger wearing a blindfold as much as I do'." (You'll Get There in the End (It Just Takes a While))

The Federation and the Romulan Empire have been on the verge of war for what sometimes feels like forever; this is the place where what passes for peace might end. (War Games)
Reccer's Notes: This series deals with interspecies issued in a variety of ways. The first story, You'll Get There in the End (It Just Takes a While), is about Kirk and Spock coming together as captain and first officer (and dealing with a very ... unique pon farr). The third story, War Games, deals with a whole host of interspecies issues, from Vulcan shenanigans to Romulan plots. Really entertaining and epicly long.

Star trek reboot: The Word for World Is-- by Laura JV
Summary: Humans would've named the planet New Earth and the places things like New Africa or New Russia. Vulcans did no such thing; they named the planet Vik: the well in the desert. They named the continents Ashv'cezh, Laktra, and Vrekasht: Revenge, Grief, and Outcast.
Reccer's Notes: This is a really evocative story about Vulcans trying to go on after the destruction of their planet, and clueless humans trying to help and worry about them.

Star Trek (AOS): Wherein Gaila is Moulting, by kayliemalinza
Summary: Gaila wakes up itchy at 0530 and moans when she looks in the mirror. Her belly is splotched with yellow and red. At her waist the skin is brittle, dried-out brown, and crumbles when she bends. She thinks for several panicky moments that she is ill, but as she prods at her limbs and breasts, tugs the roots of her hair, tests the edges of her eyesight, she realizes she is molting.
Reccer's Notes: This has been one of my favorite Star Trek fics since it came out. It is one of the most original takes on an alien biology I've ever seen. This takes the whole "so what if Orions are really sentient plants, what would that mean, what would that be like?" and explores it. The details of Orion biology and culture are fascinating, as is how Gaila manages them on Enterprise and how she sees her human crewmates and friends. It's compellingly written, I only wish it were longer.

Star Trek: Lunch and Other Obscenities, by Rheanna
Summary: Nyota liked her roommate just fine until she met her.
Reccer's Notes: A wonderful story about cultural differences, otherness and learning to live together, in this time quite literally! There is some light Uhura/Spock in the background but it is at heart a gen fic very true to the spirit of Star Trek, both clever and funny, that explore interspecies dynamics, various diverging taboos... and that was actually quoted and discussed in a New Yorker article!

Star Trek: A Long-Standing Union by what_alchemy
Summary: At 103, Jim knows he can’t go through another pon farr.
Reccer's Notes: This is beautiful, bittersweet and the good kind of heartbreaking. I love the tenderness and love always apparent between them. This fic doesn't shy from the unglamorous aspects of aging, and explore what the differences in aging between their species can mean for them, but also other themes around interspecies pairings, as Spock work in a DNA studies reseaching the effects of cross-breeding between Vulcans and other species.
