    Summary

    Beyond the color of their uniforms, Spock and McCoy have one thing in common: they’re both in love with the other’s best friend. Spock has “fallen in love” with Jim and doesn’t know how to get back up. Asking the captain’s confidant for romantic advice seems like the only logical solution, but becoming used to McCoy’s shocking methods will take some fortitude. Leonard, on the other hand, finds himself playing wingman to a Vulcan—a roll he gets more and more caught up in as Spock’s will-he-won’t-he romance sends the doctor into a nail-biting fury.

    Summary

    Syleese, the jewel of the Kalinae system, is rich in mineral resources and advanced technology of great interest to the Federation. Jim and his crew lead the diplomatic outreach to this isolated planet with their usual confidence and attention to detail.

    Although the Syleesians are a devotedly peaceful people, the mission is not without risk -- the planet’s entire culture is based upon an elaborate set of courtly manners that dictate how one should behave in every circumstance. One misstep could destroy the nascent relationship between Syleese and the Federation before it even begins.

    As Jim navigates these delicate negotiations with Spock at his side, he finds himself closer than he’s ever been to revealing his deepest secret...

    Old skool ST loveliness. A perfect marriage of early K/S imagery and modern thinking.

    Summary

    Steve had gone fully red-faced with pedantic altar-boy fury. “Did your computer forget how to Google translate?” he bellowed, sticking his head up and over. Bucky yanked him down again. “What are you even trying to say?”

    Bucky tried to shake the sparkles off the grenade he had been planning on lobbing over the divider. “It sounded like Latin to me,” he said reasonably, pursing his lips and frowning at the explosive. It dripped a sparkle, and a puff of purple smoke curled up where it hit the concrete.

    “That’s because you spent Sunday school flirting with Sarah Cunningham,” Steve accused, bobbing back up to throw his shield and ducking back down to dodge a shining ball of blue light. “You wouldn’t know Latin if it came up and kissed you on your ugly mug.”

    “I’d sure know it if Sarah Cunningham did, though.” Bucky grinned, struck by the memory. “That gal really knew what she was doing.”

A series of events, both great and small; featuring cameos by unsuspecting planets, complicated interpersonal relationships, off-record shenanigans, and a surprising number of hostile life-forms.

    Summary

    As a grease monkey turned college freshman, Dean's constantly three seconds away from being stressed out of his mind. It hardly helps that he's finally figuring out his sexuality in his thirties.

    What might help with that stress is a little phone number (and a big credit card bill). If he can't figure out how to be bisexual in person, he can at least give it a go over the phone, right?

    (It's probably a bad idea, but he really can't help himself.)
