Only Child - by itshysterekal (Don't Call Me T'hy'la #1)
His back punched the wall as Jim determinedly slid down it to sit next to the Vulcan. “Why are you watching me?” Jim was on edge and a confrontation was a bad idea, but he had to do something to stay sane.

“You were the first to submit your list and you have wasted no time in denial. In fact, you have gotten a decent amount of sleep which implies practicality. You are conserving your strength for the upcoming trial, which is extremely logical.”

“So, what? You’re sizing up the competition? Aren’t Vulcans way stronger than humans anyway?”

Kirk wasn’t sure if he was getting used to the odd way the Vulcan seemed to observe instead of look or if it was just getting less creepy. “Strength will not win these games. It will be stamina, ingenuity, and calm that prevail.”

“So, you’re what? Trying to see how clever I am?”

The Vulcan stared at him again. “Does this worry you?”

“I don’t like people spying on me. Especially when they’re trying to figure out how to kill me.”

“I am not trying to kill you. I find you fascinating.”

Why Des Moines and Iowa business leaders support NAFTA - Des Moines Register
Iowa exports more to our two NAFTA partners – Canada and Mexico – than to the next 23 countries combined. Iowa stands to lose a great deal if the North American Free Trade Agreement is dismantled, rather than updated and improved.

Victims of War - by Cammerel
“I’m sorry,” Jim says, glancing back at his mother, then Spock again, “I didn’t mean to make you uncomfortable.”

Spock takes another step closer, “I am not uncomfortable, Jim. You did not make me so.”

“I didn’t?”

“You did not.”

Jim smiles and still seems to need more convincing when he says: “Mom told me what I did was wrong.”

“I admit I am still unfamiliar with Terran customs,” Spock tells him, “But I do not feel as though you did anything wrong.”

“Then it was okay?”

“It…” Spock does not find the word applicable, “Yes, Jim, it is okay.”

Jim leans in quickly then and kisses him once more on the lips.

Winona and his mother gasp, Jim’s mother reaching out to grab his arm.


“What? He said it was okay,” Jim complains, pulled nearly off his feet, shirt tugged up to expose his soft belly as Spock watches the exchange.

Their time spent together afterwards was under constant surveillance. Jim did try to kiss him three more times, each occurance being stopped when his mother cut him off as she spoke his name in warning.
