Good for the Soul - Maifai
Part 1 of the Shades of Blue and Gold Series

Leonard McCoy had no intention of getting close to anyone for as long as he was to attend Starfleet Academy. Least of all the spoiled brat that he couldn't seem to get away from.


Typical academy era fic, but as in depth as possible. It will follow Jim and McCoy throughout their three years in the academy together, and will explore their growth from tentative acquaintances to the inseparable pair that they become.

Our Life Is Not a Movie or Maybe
From Variety, June 2008:
Pavel Chekov ("Charlie X") and Gaila ("Bread and Circuses") have joined the cast of small budget drama "That Which Survives," funded by Fleet's indie arm Academy and supervised by Nyota Uhura.
The debut feature from longtime script doctor Leonard McCoy, former show runner on sitcom "Three to Tango," centers on a college student coping with his father's terminal cancer. Chekov plays the son, Gaila the nurse. The father is yet to be cast.
Also attached are director James T. Kirk and producer Spock, the team behind the blockbuster spy-girl franchise starring Carol Marcus, the latest of which, "A Taste of Armageddon," opened last month.
(A modern-day Hollywood AU.)

Where You Lead, I Will Follow
It’s not like it bothers Jim that Bones is happy. Jim wants Bones to be happy. It’s just that Jim isn’t going to rest until he knows what is making Bones happy. And figures out a way to become a part of it.

Jim Kirk turns down Pike’s challenge, and doesn’t get on the Starfleet recruiting shuttle. But neither does Leonard McCoy, who’s actually been in Iowa for six months already, doing fuck-all. Becoming drinking buddies seems like a natural progression.

Sometimes the path to the stars is just a piece-of-shit dirt road. You know, the kind that’s filled with potholes and surrounded by brambles and conveniently happens to be located in the bottom of a ravine. But every once in a while, when confronted with such a twisted mess of circumstance and cracked foundation, the universe still does its very best to fill in the holes.

This is the story of Jim Kirk, not as he might have been in another world, but who he is becoming in this one; and these are the people and encounters that change him along the way.

chin up, cheer up
Jim really kind of wants to say it then, because maybe he won’t come back from this one. His dad didn’t. He bites his lip, thinks, Bones, man, you are it, you are the one, leave a light on for me, but he salutes instead. Regrets it maybe a little as he stands there awkwardly through Uhura and Spock’s goodbye.

Okay, maybe a lot.

One Little White Lie
One little white lie never hurt anybody, that's what they say. But apparently they are wrong, because even one small lie can spin out of control and change a life forever. Jim only wanted to be by his best friend's side after an accident. Nobody could have known that the lie he told to make that possible was going to come back to haunt him.

The Next Time You Say Forever
After his ex-wife's death, McCoy is forced to leave the Enterprise to look after his teenage daughter. Under normal circumstances, this would be the end of…whatever it is he has with Kirk that's more than friendship, but less than what he wants. But the universe has other intentions.

Western Skies
All it takes is one little difference to change many things, and when James T. Kirk was born on a shuttle fleeing a tragedy of catastrophic proportions, well, there was one thing not quite...typical about him. A tale of family, love, understanding, Ghirardelli mint chocolates, and clogged vacuums.

Under an atomic sky - anruiukimi - Star Trek (2009) [Archive of Our Own]
All it takes is one little difference to change many things, and when James T. Kirk was born on a shuttle fleeing a tragedy of catastrophic proportions, well, there was one thing not quite...typical about him. A tale of family, love, understanding, Ghirardelli mint chocolates, and clogged vacuums.


This is an AU/AR wing!fic, with a few concepts borrowed from X-men. No knowledge of X-men is needed to read this story, however. :)

The story begins with Christopher Pike, when Jim is 11, continues on with Jim and Jonathan Archer at 16, then returns to Chris when Jim is 19-22, then Jim takes the reins from about 20-25. The story will end with Leonard "Bones" McCoy, when Jim is 25.

This was envisioned as a serious attempt at a wing!fic, a concept I feel is largely overlooked or not fleshed out beyond being used as a plot device very often, so I hope you enjoy my attempt to give it a more comprehensive whirl! :D
