    Summary

    In which shit goes down in no particular order: Jim almost starts a war, Spock gets tortured, Jim gets kidnapped, Jim gets tortured, Spock gets not-quite-kidnapped, Jim takes the Enterprise joyriding, and mysterious Vulcans with their even more mysterious leader hop a ride for a few weeks. But that’s not what the story’s about. It’s about this: Jim was always going to fall in love with Spock – boldly, recklessly. He just didn’t expect to stay that way. A story about getting over all that.

    In Jim’s quarters, Spock’s holding something in his hand, the same red stone from the heat of Vulcan-that-was that he’d tried to give Jim once before. “Will you take it?” he asks again.

    Jim glances over to his open drawer, to the black and gold stone sitting, ever-present, on the top of his dresser, and then back at Spock’s calm, steady face. He marvels at the trust glinting out from hidden angles like so much gold in a black stone, despite everything, just waiting to be noticed, and says, “No.

    Summary

    At age five, Spock informs his mother that it is illogical to wish him “sweet dreams” at bedtime because Vulcans do not dream. “Oh, Spock,” she says.

    Summary

    Sometimes Derek can't get out of his own way.

    (Or: He'd been informed he was a stage-five clinger by a few people, and he certainly loved Stiles more than all of his exes put together. Moderation was the safest path.)

    (Also introducing Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.) (No, not them.)

    "You're upset, Stiles. You don't have to put that aside to take care of me." Derek's insecurity-masked-as-indifference had taken up three separate slides in the presentation.

    Summary

    Sometimes, when they're close like they are now, Stiles wonders if Derek is seducing him. He wonders if the fingers rubbing calming circles into his thigh and the warm, salty breath against his neck are maneuvers to earn his trust. He wonders about Derek's plans, if—once he has Stiles fooled—Derek will rip his throat out.

    The thoughts might seem paranoid, except that's exactly what Stiles did to Peter.

    Summary

    Stiles has already seen his future and is confused about his past (it's all a bit like dreaming). Scott is just trying to help and Derek doesn't know what is going on, but is more than willing to go with it.
