So. Star Trek.

Saw it, loved it, but it's too long ago now to do an extended post about it, except to say it's like pairing bingo! Kirk/McCoy! Kirk/Spock! Spock/Uhura! Anyone/practically everyone!

So anyway! In lieu of long-winded blathering, have some recs instead:

  • Break: Parts 1, 2, and 3, by [livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63 (Spock/Uhura; Rated: R)
    During their final semester at Starfleet Academy, two people who have no intention of ever changing transform each other.

    This is, hands down, the best Spock/Uhura fic you will read: come for the linguistics porn (Phonology! Morphology! Semantics! The use of semantic bleaching! It's all there, and it's glorious), stay for the perfect characterisations of both Spock and Uhura. The story seamlessly shows how their relationship could have developed, and is now part of my personal canon for the the characters. And as a teaser, here's a tiny fragment of the fic itself:
    “What purpose does the surface grid serve?”
    Want to know what that's all about? Go read the fic, then run and tell [livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63 how fantastic it is when you're done!

  • You'll Get There in the End (It Just Takes a While), by [livejournal.com profile] seperis (Kirk/Spock; Rated: NC-17)
    "Spock. Just say 'I don't trust Starfleet not to mess up the only captain in the fleet who I can train up to my expectations and enjoys running into danger wearing a blindfold as much as I do'."

    Among the many, many joys of this fic: the word 'krupenta', importance of essay questions, and the Kobayashi Maru.

    Oh, and pon farr.

    ...Did I not mention that? I can safely say that no other Kirk/Spock fic had me quite as gleeful or as enthralled as this one. The story's 100% awesome; go and read it now, then go and beg/plead/blackmail her for another, as I plan to!

  • I'm Just a Jealous Guy, by [livejournal.com profile] londondrowning (Kirk/McCoy; Rated: PG-13)
    Who Jim is and what he means to McCoy, it’s shaped him, it’s made him someone new. This has been the defining friendship of his life. Is it so goddamn much to want to be the defining friendship of Jim’s in return?

    What about Bones? [livejournal.com profile] londondrowning's got the answer to that, and her Jim's a guy who's paying attention. In fact, go and check out all her Kirk/McCoy fics, which are all great, but first don't forget to leave her some feedback.

  • Art rec: Would you look at these GQ motherfuckers?, by [livejournal.com profile] glockgal. (Bones and Kirk; Sulu and Chekov; Spock and Uhura; All rated: G).
    More importantly, would you look at these GQ MFs as depicted by the inimitable [livejournal.com profile] glockgal?

    I could blather on about the dynamism of Kirk and McCoy painting versus the minute detailed rendering of the Spock and Uhura artwork, but check it out for yourself. Go, bask, then leave feedback.
