    Summary

    James Kirk is a lot of things: genius, hero, playboy, starship captain. He is braver than is good for him, unafraid of the unknown, unreserved in his passions, and smarter than anyone gives him credit for.

    And he's going to need all of that to save the life of the one person that makes any of it feel worthwhile.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    It's a "Kirk saves Spock by mating with him during pon farr" story, but it has some nice touches, including Jim's wanting them to mate before the plak tow so that his first time with Spock will be while Spock is lucid, and Spock's conveying things (like lust) in a meld that he's too Vulcan to utter aloud.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Beautifully written story of a Kirk who brings back Amanda because he loves Spock, and a Spock who understands what Kirk has done for him and who explains to him that they are t'hy'la. More loving and less trite than a lot of "how Kirk and Spock get together" stories.

    Nicely in character K/S story that feels like real Trek while also being Spirk.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A beautifully written story of a Nyota who's had a crush on female!Spock for a long time and who is thrilled but unsure when Spock wants to have a relationship with her for real. This story is sweet and delicate, but in a good way, not a saccharine way.

    Summary

    After the events in City on the Edge of Forever, Spock suggests that he and Jim spend some time on Vulcan. Turns out it's not a great place for a vacation, but is plenty good for pining.
