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.

Something Smart to Do by kianspo
In which Jim finds himself fake-married to his first officer every other month. It's not his fault. Mostly. Dowries and Klingons are involved. Starfleet is decidedly not amused.

The Genetic Soap Opera (or, One of the Less Dignified Royal Weddings) by waketosleep
Turns out Jim Kirk's more than meets the eye, genetically speaking. There are a lot of consequences, mostly for Spock and his sanity.

In Mutual Orbit - by what_alchemy
The bridge in the weeks following the rescue on Calliope II is characterized by icy silence. The Captain’s professionalism has a sour edge while the First Officer appears to have turned to stone. At the ends of shifts, Kirk is quick to leave, and Spock lingers, waiting out the threat of her presence as if she’s a storm. Chekov looks as though his parents are divorcing, and maybe he’s not the only one.

As messy break-ups go, Nyota supposes it could be worse. There are no loud, humiliating scenes, no trash talk, no vindictive assignments, which, Nyota admits, she no longer expects of the Captain. The only way Nyota knows it’s really over and not just a rough patch is when she’s having drinks with Monty on shore leave, and she sees Kirk leave the establishment with a square-shouldered, petite woman wearing a punishing expression. Nyota feels a heaviness settle over her chest at the sight.

and if they don't dance (well they're no friends of mine) - by KiaraSayre
"You were in the Starfleet Academy Ballet Showcase last year. You had a solo with a guy wearing all blue who jumped around like he was on a trampoline, and your leg got so high I thought for sure you were going to kick your dance partner in the ear."

Nyota had come very close to doing just that in rehearsals, not that she would ever admit that to Kirk. "That is possibly the most asinine description of the Bluebird pas de deux I've ever heard, and it's by definition not a solo if someone else is dancing with you." Then she frowns. "And what were you doing at the ballet, anyway? Please don't say ogling women."

"Of course not," says Kirk, putting a hand to his heart in offense. "Tutus have surprisingly good coverage. I was there to ogle the men. Those tights provide definition."

Nyota rolls her eyes. "What do you want, Captain?"

"We're both off-duty, you know. You can call me Jim."

"What do you want, Kirk?"

Kirk sighs, drooping his shoulders theatrically. "We'll get there eventually. Have you ever done any Aldebari dance? The ones with all the people dancing together?"

"You've just described almost every Aldebari dance," says Nyota. "Ever. Can you be more specific?"

Kirk spins the PADD so it's facing her and slides it across the table. "I can be very specific, actually. I'm here to ask for help - not in any official capacity, just from one person who's a shitty dancer to someone who's actually kind of terrific at it."

the ship in port is the safer one (but it's not the reason it was made) by KiaraSayre
The Enterprise's first mission is a boring one. Luckily, the ship more or less makes its own trouble, including: stills, toilet paper, lighting issues, awkward crewmembers, lunchroom seating politics, and, of course, the Admiralty.

Or: How Jim Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Chain Of Command.

“You go every Sunday night? How did I not know this?” Nyota asks. "It’s just this thing we do," Gaila tells her. "Like with food. And drinks. And people. We all get together and talk about our homes and our traditions and celebrate our holidays and stuff like that. Look, you can come if you want but it’s all off worlders. It's not really a human thing, you'd be the only one."
