    Summary

    Tarsus IV, a simple farming colony of 60 years with a mostly human population of nearly 10000 people. It's a place for relaxation, escape, and the people living there were attracted to a tech-minimal life. Then the blight came and nearly 2000 people - those already elderly or ill - starved to death despite rationing. Supplies were limited, the government was toppled, and a new power rose from the chaos. Governor Kodos, he called himself, and when he was done, there were barely 4000 people left alive.

    Summary

    A twenty-one-year-old Spock and a twenty-one-year-old Leonard McCoy are a young newly Bonded couple living in their home in the middle of a Vulcan Desert (to be fair almost all homes on Vulcan are in the middle of the desert), when nine surprises come (literally) crashing into their lives.

    Summary

    Khan called himself brutal, called himself savage, but Khan was merely a warmonger, a solider. Kirk was a survivor. And he wasn’t going to die today.

    Summary

    The guards started firing into the crowd.

    People were screaming—children were screaming—and flesh was burning and the building was burning and smoke was filling the air and it smelled like cooked meat. Jim’s stomach growled, and the only thing that kept him from stopping to throw up was the knowledge that it would get him shot.

    Kodos put the Tarsus eleven on the kill list because they were poor, disposable, sickly, and nonhuman kids.

    Summary

    Death is not poetic, Jim Kirk thinks. It is literal. Death is both the immovable object and the unstoppable force. Death is cruel and does not discriminate. It grasps life and love in its cold, unforgiving hands, stealing them away and leaving destruction and grief in its wake.

    At age thirteen, Jim Kirk learns that death, much like a sword, can be wielded - if it is so ordered.

    -

    Jim meets a strange Vulcan boy while on the run on Tarsus, and they must band together if they have any hope of surviving.

    Summary

    Neither Leonard McCoy nor James Kirk knew what they were doing when they signed up for Starfleet Academy, which makes these two overqualified but underprepared plebes perfect (or maybe not) roommates. Aside from the stress of their classes, Jim and Leonard will have to face pranks, drama, computer malfunctions, relationship issues, and--perhaps worst of all--living with each other.
    But hey, if they wanna be able to survive five year missions in deep, unknown space, first they've gotta figure out how to survive freshman year at Starfleet Academy (and also maybe each other's company).

    (not actually a list fic, lol, but i like the title XD)

    Summary

    Spock Prime is captured and killed empathically shortly after crossing through the wormhole, causing his katra to disintegrate and send a flash of his memories out across the galaxy, memories of the future.

    James T. Kirk was born to be a hero and the whole universe knows it. The only question is, how do they make sure she becomes what she’s supposed to be?

    Summary

    Tarsus IV happened in most verse's. Only in this one The Federation didn't arrive in days to save everyone. Kodos, wasn't a misguided man trying to save who he could. And Kirk wasn't the kid who lived a few days in hell and made it out alive. Tarsus shaped him, it scarred him and ultimately it killed him. Jimmy died and the person who rose from the ash became the man who would lead the Enterprise and risk everything for his crew...his family.

    Because he already had before.

    This is the story. (Updates Every other week)

    Summary

    October, 2257: the ten year anniversary of the Tarsus IV Massacre. Jim Kirk is getting by like he usually does around the time of the anniversary until one of his instructors assigns a reading that brings all the horrors of Tarsus back to the surface. And Leonard McCoy, clueless of his boyfriend's past, finds himself at a loss. With only a cryptic warning and a request to look after her son from Winona Kirk, Leonard begins to piece things together himself and help Jim cope with the trauma. And while the horrors of Tarsus will continue to haunt him, Jim finds solace in finally speaking to someone about what happened and knowing he's got Leonard McCoy looking out for him.

    Summary

    Children are the future. Their potential is limitless and uncertain. As such, aptitude tests can't measure a child's true and complete value to society, so Kodos the Executioner requires a more multi-faceted form of evaluation. Young Jim Kirk refuses to accept that his reality has become kill or be killed, or that he may possibly be stuck in a no-win scenario.

    Or, in which Tarsus IV was a lot less peaceful than half the population walking into an anti-matter chamber and a lot more like the Hunger Games.

    Part two is fully drafted and part three is in progress.

    Summary

    Two things were certain about James Tiberius Kirk from the moment he was born on an irradiated pod bay. One, he would always be near death, from injury or allergy, no matter where or when. Two, he had multiple soulmates, who controlled vast parts of his body-an unprecedented anomaly in all recorded species across the galaxy.

    ...Oh boy.
