    Summary

    NOW FINISHED "When ancient seafaring ships fought battles the decks would become slippery with blood. They used to scatter sand to give the sailors traction as they fought to reload the cannons. Starships don't carry sand. But right now, on deck 5, that looks like an oversight."

    Something is wrong on Deneb III. And something is wrong with Kirk too. Attempt to write TOS style with its roots in a TOS episode.

    Summary

    "All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible." -- T.E. Lawrence

    Bookmarker's Notes

    You cannot shock or squick me easily, and I am willing to stretch my imagination quite a bit to allow room for unusual or OOC-prone material. That is, if it is well-written. I value spot-on characters very much in KIrk/Spock fandom; so if you try to throw domestic violence, rape or other abuse into the mix, or if you explore psychological abysses and health issues, you better do it brilliantly. Same goes for certain kinks and sexual practices. Make it credible, authentic and K/S-compatible (i.e., don't just slap their names on two random characters) - and I am willing to go along. There are definitely dark tones and themes in Star Trek TOS, and if you are able to let Kirk and Spock act them out without losing their defining voices, then do it, please. I list all these possible concerns and try to get them out of the way, because this rec is a fic with very dark tones: C. M. Decarnin's "Entreat Me Not to Leave Thee". And I want to make clear that these dark tones were NOT an obstacle for me. What made me hesitate, however, was the fact that this classic is an unfinished piece. Read more about this work on Fanlore or go directly to the story. You won't regret reading it; yes, it is only a fragment, but so well-written, and it deals with Dom/sub dynamics in a very authentic (and explicit) way.
