notboldly: The Best Laid Plans [1/2]
The problem was that Jim wasn’t really friends with Spock either. He’d tried for the first few months, because he’d been in a bad place for much of his life and he’d sort of wanted Older Spock’s promised friendship, that anchor to fall back on. And he’d gotten it!…with Older Spock, whom he regularly corresponded with, no matter where in the universe they were. Jim supposed that he’d sort of forgotten that he had his own Spock, this person from his own timeline he was meant to forge new paths with, to be friends with until death or far after. There were only so many times he could have invitations and offerings and his friendship refused, though, before he forgot that this was something special he was supposed to be fighting for, something that Spock would eventually give in to. He’d forgotten, and he’d given up.

In light of that, he supposed he didn’t blame Spock for being suspicious when—after months of silence—Jim started asking him to play chess again. The thought was simple: Jim might not have been Spock’s friend, but Spock didn’t appear to have many others, and break-ups were better with someone who cared. The problem, of course, was convincing Spock of that.

“Captain, I assure you that I have had no urge to defeat you in chess, nor do I expect to in the future. Please cease interrupting my work.”

Spock could be really nasty when he wanted to be, Jim could admit, but he was also direct and to the point, certainly blunter than Older Spock ever was. Jim knew he could come to like that rather than just appreciate it during moments of professional urgency, and the thought—yes, that special friendship, it’s there, this could all work—made him smile and persist.

“Well then, how do you feel about losing?”

It was the right thing to say, oddly enough. And it was even better when Jim kept his promise: Spock lost. From then on, it was easy convincing Spock that Jim could be right in other things, if easy meant that Spock had to be proven wrong again, and again, and again. Jim wondered (often while running for his life on some godforsaken planet) what he had done to convince Spock that he was still some stupid, punk-ass kid that hadn’t grown to fit his captain’s uniform.

Older Spock had much to say on the subject, but he was vague, as usual.

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.

After the night in the warehouse, relationships are strained and everyone is unsure where they stand. Stiles is angry at his best friend and doesn't know why his thoughts are being taken up more and more by a certain Sourwolf.

Severina - Moving Day
But by the end of the second month, he'd come to understand that what he'd thought was just a bit of a crush on the larger than life cop that had saved his life was actually… probably… definitely… love. That was when he knew he had to move. Because that larger than life cop? Straight. Straighter than straight. And Matt Farrell was a lot of things, but he wasn't a fool.
