    Reboot guys, but very well done. First person from Kirk's POV, which allows the author to think about how wonderful Spock is, and I'm always a sucker for how wonderful Spock is. :-)

    Summary

    Such close proximity is a difficult thing to ask of a touch telepath struggling with emotional repression. For Spock even positive emotion is something to be ashamed of.

    When I read too many stories where Spock is just a pointy-eared human, rather than a Vulcan, I read THIS.

    Summary

    While on medical leave after his miraculous recovery, Jim is plagued with dreams -- dreams of another James T. Kirk, the one from the same alternate reality that the other Spock hails from. At first, Jim's dreams are dismissed as a psychological symptom of his latest trauma, but when he starts talking about a place called the Nexus, the answer no longer seems so cut-and-dried. But disturbing dreams aren't the only thing Jim's struggling with -- there's Starfleet's concern over his mental stability, the repairs of his beloved ship and the little matter of the fact that his First Officer seems to be intent on ignoring him.

    I subscribed to this, so I must have liked it, but so much time has passed between the initial posting and the final chapter that I no longer remember anything about it. I'm bookmarking it to re-read someday when I'm in the mood for that.

    Summary

    Sometimes friendship is a safer bet, but Kirk hasn't been known for playing it safe. A now-or-never moment between Kirk and Spock. Guess what they picked?

    Some great insights into the characters in this one; I love the line "There’s only one person equipped with some kind of an internal compass with ‘Kirk’ spelled where the North should be."

    Summary

    Just because Zach had a thing for a fictional character didn't mean he expected Chris to notice.

    Amusing little story where Zachary Quinto has a crush on Kirk, so Chris Pine obliges him.
