    Summary

    “The revolution is successful. But survival depends on drastic measures. Your continued existence represents a threat to the well-being of society. Your lives mean slow death to the more valued members of the colony. Therefore, I have no alternative but to sentence you to death. Your execution is so ordered, signed Kodos, Governor of Tarsus IV.” he said simply. Before the boys even had time to process what was happening, the sound of phaser fire filled the air, and they watched as Mr. and Mrs. Leighton turned to ashes, right in front of their eyes. Jim inhaled sharply, tears rushing to his eyes. He clapped a hand over his mouth, feeling numb.

     

    Jim awoke rather slowly, real tears streaking his cheeks. He rolled over and found his bed empty. His heart panged for the comfort of his husband, but he was most likely awake in his own quarters, researching Tarsus IV, desperately trying to figure out what had happened to make Jim so upset at Karidian’s presence on the Enterprise. He considered calling Tom, but then he remembered, with despair, Tom was dead. He had been murdered, picked off by Karidian-- by Kodos. He sobbed aloud, burying his head in the pillow.

    And it isn't the one that is easy to kill.

    -AOS Star Trek with mythos from Coraline and other fae stories.

    Summary

    Jim takes out his IV, once, just to feel the burn of hunger so sharp it’s dizzying once more. It hurts, but the pain is better than the numbness that he feels otherwise. His mind is so empty, and so, so quiet.

    He never looks up Spock’s name. He doesn’t need some words on a screen to tell him what he already knows.

    Summary

    One of the great untold stories in the Trek canon is the fall of the Tarsus Colony, where Kodos the Executioner put four thousand innocents to death. Other than its appearance in "The Conscience of the King," the Tarsus Massacre is mentioned only one other time in canon: a biographical screen in "In a Mirror, Darkly," states that Hoshi Sato was one of the victims of the massacre. While some stories have explored Tarsus, none, to my knowledge, have recounted how Hoshi met her fate there. It always seemed to me that there HAD to be a story there. Eventually, I wrote it.

    Summary

    “At the party you were such a brash young man.”
    “And now?” Lenore shakes her head.
    “Now, somehow different,” she says, “Not a ship’s captain with all those people to be strong and confident in front of,” He huffs a laugh, “you know, you’re really very dear, aren’t you? In some ways…” she moves closer, and Jim tries not to step away, “Very lonely.” She cups his cheeks in her small hands, and makes to close the short distance between them. He tries to think of an excuse, but he does not need one.

    Summary

    Do not stand at my grave and weep,
    I am not there, I do not sleep.
    I am in a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the softly falling snow.
    I am the gentle showers of rain,
    I am the fields of ripening grain.
    I am in the morning hush,
    I am in the graceful rush
    Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
    I am the starshine of the night.
    I am in the flowers that bloom,
    I am in a quiet room.
    I am in the birds that sing,
    I am in each lovely thing.
    Do not stand at my grave and cry,
    I am not there. I do not die.

    ~Mary Elizabeth Frye, alternate version of "Do Not Stand at my Grave and Weep"

    Summary

    The Man in Blue was a Kirk family secret; the one who was always there when their youngest was staring death in the face. But no one knew who he was, where he came from, or where he went. What did Jim Kirk mean to the man, and what did it mean when one time he wasn’t there?

    Summary

    "“Relax, Spock. You don’t need to be so formal when it’s just us. We’re not even on the fucking ship.” Damn it. He hoped Spock didn’t notice his momentary loss of control.
    Spock only raised one eyebrow in his signature look of judgement/surprise before moving to parade rest and continuing."

    Or, 5 times Spock comforted Jim, and one time it was the other way around.

    Summary

    For the first time since he left Tarsus, Jim’s smile doesn’t feel strained. T’Mai reaches up from his lap and pats him gently on the face. There’s a stream of happy-safe-content that makes Jim want to straighten her hair and press kisses to her forehead. It’s hard to resist, but he manages. Amanda grins at him, face soft, like she understands.
    “I hope you can take her with you.” Amanda murmurs. “You’ll be good for each other.” Jim doesn’t answer her, but he knows she’s right.

    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

    “Listen, you don’t remember anything, right?” Kirk’s voice was somehow persuasive, curious, and resigned all at once.

    “Affirmative," Spock replied. "I have very few memories of my past.”

    “Exactly. You don’t know what happened to you. No one knows what happened to him.” Kirk shrugged. “Who’s to say you’re not the lost son of Sarek and Amanda Grayson? If you’re not, T’Pau will certainly know right away, and it’ll all just be an honest mistake.” Kirk held eye contact with Spock and took a step forward. “But if you are him, you’ll finally know who you are. You’ll have your family back.” He stared at Spock for another moment, then took a breath and gave a charming smile. “Either way, it gets you to Vulcan and it gets us off Earth. Everybody wins.”
