Star Trek Kirk/Spock fic recs post  
This all started when fyrethief asked me for some Star Trek K/S fic recs. My original plan of course was to only rec a couple so as not to overwhelm her, but then I found I couldn't make up my mind and the list kept growing and growing. O_o I finally decided it was hopeless and I might as well just start a rec entry to post them all in. Feel free to check back often, as I will continue to add more of my favorites as time goes by, because K/S shall always own part of my soul. Now, go forth and read! ♥

ETA: All new recs will have a ~NEW~ in front of them, along with the date that they were added.

Antigravity (AOS) by sinestrated. Five times Spock was surprised by the brilliance of Kirk's mind, and one time he totally saw it coming.

Asymptote (AOS) by tahariel. A wonderful fic where Spock ends up crazy for Kirk's touch.

Balance (TOS) by awarrington. Spock notices his captain seems to get a thrill out of being in danger and spends months closely monitoring Kirk before approaching him about it. Just about then, events in his life overtake him...

Carpe Diem (AOS) by the_dreamwalker. "Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero – "Seize the day, trusting as little as possible in the future," Horace once said. And Spock obeys him.

Destiny's Bitch: A Love Story (AOS) by nix_this. Jim doesn't even know where to start. Blurting out: 'I got shot in the ass by this planet's version of cupid, only with more teeth and claws, and then I fucked Uhura's boyfriend on the ground after the most emotionally intimate experience of my sad, sad life' seems crass. Now with bonus Deleted sex scene!

The Handmaid of Genius (AOS) by ladyblahblah. When the replicators go offline, Jim reacts unexpectedly.

When the Narada destroyed Vulcan, billions died. There have to be long-term, serious consequences to that for the surviving Vulcans, and especially for Spock, who shipped off with the Enterprise almost right away.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow (TOS) by Kay S. Spock begins acting strangely after returning from Sarpedion’s past.


Mirror!verse. Now, let me just say up front that I have never been a fan of mirror!verse at all. I am not into the violence and excessive cruelty that most of this genre is comprised of, so imagine my surprise when I came across some mirror fics in which that is not the case at all.

Bed of Silence (TOS) by Rosemary. On the day he receives his captaincy, Kirk is taken by Mitchell to a brothel where the main attraction is a male "devil." This is not specified as mirror!verse, but it reads that way IMO.

Set on an extremely xenophobic Vulcan.

On Christmas Eve, thanks to a series of strange events, Jim finds himself in a parallel universe where the Milky Way is under the control of an alien race and ends up as a servant in the residence of the Royal House of Vulcan. As he starts adapting to his new life, Jim's curiosity fucks everything up—but hey, Vulcans shouldn't have told him that he isn't allowed to enter this wing of the palace; Jim has never been good at following rules.

Prize (TOS) by Ray Newton. On pre-reform Vulcan, Kirk is the prize in a competition.

(WIP) The Prophecy of Apollo (AOS) by ladyblahblah. "Based on the Cupid and Psyche myth. How different would the world be if Surak's influence had never spread, if the Awakening had never happened, if Vulcans had never sought to control their emotions?

Master of a Nothing Place (AOS) by strzyga. Spock is stripped of his logic on an away mission gone bad and turns feral, incredibly violent and utterly brutal. When he comes across Jim, though, he is possessive, protective, and even affectionate. Ok, this is SO very much more than PWP, but I have put it here because I don't really feel like it belongs in the general recs as it is probably not everyone's cup of tea. If you don't like violence and/or gore you might want to stay away.

I Should Have Known (TOS) by TLeynti. Short, completely plausible, angsty and nicely done.

The Madman of Lesath II (TOS) by Debbie C. This is a brilliant piece of writing that broke my heart into hundreds of tiny little pieces. Warning for non-con and torture. Read at your own risk.

Slaveworld (TOS) By Gloria Fry. Ok, first of all this is NOT slash. *gasp* IKR? I can't believe I'm making a disclaimer for friendship only fic! XD Anywhooo ... Kirk is kidnapped and turned into a slave by a race of Vulcans on an alien planet and Spock of course must rescue him. Even though there is no slash, the love shown between Jim and Spock is simply beautiful. I have a thing for bonding and yes, they are telepathically bonded as brothers and IT IS WONDERFUL!!! ♥

Turning Point (TOS) by Killa. A TOS fic that I have loved forever, I suppose it probably should be on the EPIC list as well. This is my personal fanon. UST and then angst with a capital A! It has a sequel called Full Circle which is actually linked at the end of the first story, so you can just keep reading through.

Nu!Spock has a plan. War Games (XI), is the sequel. Both fics are equally amazing. *points below* This series belongs on the EPIC list as well. ♥



Atlas (AOS) by Angel Baby1. Slightly AU. Spock and Jim are soulmates in this slow building epic with angst out the wazoo. Her Jim is almost, but not quite, super!Jim and I love him to death in this fic.

(WIP) Divergence (AOS) by 13empress. Someone from the Narada survived, got sucked through when the singularity was forming to about 12 years before, manages to convene with Narada and basically Nero decides to kidnap Spock and Kirk, and change the time line, again.

The Door (AOS) by pouxin. Spock and Jim both have their doors. Jim wants his to be open. Spock wants his to be closed.

Evolution (AOS) by rhaegal. The Enterprise's first mission under the (official) captaincy of James T. Kirk.

(WIP) The Flavor of Laughter (AOS) by brytewolf. This begins from the point when they arrive home at earth and then takes them on their first mission to help rebuild New Vulcan. An epic slow building romance. I have it from the author that this is not abandoned. We just need to be patient. :)

For Gladness of You (AOS) by kariye. In which shit goes down in no particular order: Jim almost starts a war, Spock gets tortured, Jim gets kidnapped, Jim gets tortured, Spock gets not-quite-kidnapped, Jim takes the Enterprise joyriding, and mysterious Vulcans with their even more mysterious leader hop a ride for a few weeks. But that’s not what the story’s about. It’s about this: Jim was always going to fall in love with Spock – boldly, recklessly. He just didn’t expect to stay that way. A story about getting over all that.

Home (AOS) by Lanaea. One of my favorite reboot fics. Both her Kirk and Spock voices are spot on. This is filled to the brim with UST and very slow building which is the very best. Technically it is a WIP, and she hasn't updated in a long time, but the place where she stopped left me happy and feels like closure, so I kinda consider it finished as is, especially when it doesn't look like she will ever continue it.

Leave No Soul Behind (AOS) by whochick. AU. If you're Starfleet, you spend your whole life wishing you never see an EPAS uniform right up until the moment they become your only hope. Whether you're dying a slow, cold death in space, or a long painful one on some godforsaken planet, they're going to come for you. So count your last breaths, son, and hold on tight. They leave no soul behind.

The Lotus Eaters (AOS with a dash of TOS) by aldora89. Stranded on the planet Sigma Nox while searching for a missing away team, Spock and Kirk find themselves pitted against a disturbing native life form. With the captain out of commission on a regular basis and Spock struggling to preserve his stoicism, staying alive is difficult enough – but when a slim chance for escape surfaces, their resolve is truly put to the test. Together they must fight for survival in the heart of an alien jungle, and in the process, uncover the mystery of the planet’s past.

Nightvisions (TOS) by Carol Frisbie. When Kirk is blinded by a Tholian weapon, Spock leaves the service to stay at his side.

~NEW 1/2/15~ No-Win Scenario (AOS) and its sequels by cateadams. A split-second decision changes Jim’s life forever, as a desperate bid for survival results in a bond with Spock. As Jim tries to understand their new connection, he must contend with his own inner struggles. Surprising new enemies are revealed and unexpected threats emerge, and Jim must come to terms with the true significance of their bond before it is too late.

Observations (AOS) by anon_j_anon. Told from Spock's POV, her Spock voice is simply PERFECT (as is her Jim as well) and she has the ability to say so much with so few words. This fic has reduced me to tears more than once and is a beautiful, very slow building epic romance. If you read nothing else, read this.

So Wise We Grow (AOS) by captanddeastar. Spock and Jim raise a Vulcan child together on the Enterprise and fall slowly in love.

Spice (TOS) by eimeo. "It’s a question of biology. Vulcan biology. The problem with falling in love with a member of an insanely private species is that it just might take you the best part of a five year mission to work out that the feelings are requited. And then you might discover that he’s already decided that the two of you can never be together. And what are you supposed to do if he won’t tell you why?"

Tangled Destinies (AOS) by keiramarcos. Spock convinces his father to move to Earth after refusing to bond with T’Pring. The consequences of this change the dynamics of his family and sets him on the path that will lead him directly to James Kirk, who is part Betazoid in this story.



AnalyzationCommentary of TOS for K/S by Brittany Diamond. In which the author analyses each episode of TOS as proof/support of K/S. In her words: "I don't like the idea of Kirk and Spock and make up evidence, I like the idea of Kirk and Spock because of the evidence."

~NEW 11/7/13~ The Kirk/Spock Meta Project. More meta than you can shake a stick at! ♥



TOS. I had to add this vid, because it's perfect and OMG the ANGST!



Combination of TOS & XI.

This one just makes me feel good. :) XI

THIS. JUST THIS. Epic Awesomeness. XI & TOS


XI with a few hints of TOS

Currently enjoying. So much enjoyment. x3

However, I was wondering if you knew of any fic that would involve TOS mirrorverse, with mirror!Kirk being stuck in the original verse (with or without any of his crew. And by crew I mean mirror!Spock).

Also... I have watched the 2009 movie, and I am not happy about it. I don't feel young Kirk was anything like the Kirk in the original verse, not by any stretch of the imagination. Spock was a bit more believable, but it felt like everything was... overdone. So much yelling and running and... more yelling! Young Jim is too bratty, cranes his neck at anything with boobs, yells and is so very arrogant (Shatner's Kirk loved the ladies, yes, but he was very dignified about it and never actively chased booty unless he was truly infatuated)... and young Spock is ALWAYS so conflicted, and I really didn't understand the "romance" with Uhura.
This makes it very difficult for me to enjoy anything concerning the rebootverse. Convince me I'm missing out on something?

...I seem to have gone off in a rant. My apologies. *is kinda starved for K/S conversation*

Yay! *enjoys that you are enjoying* :D

Hmmm. No, I can't think of any fic like that off hand, but then I'm not a huge fan of mirror!verse. You might ask over at st_ficfinder or even kirkspock and see if anyone there could help. :)

Ah, you are not alone! I felt the same way about the new movie at first. But after watching it a few more times and reading fanfic, I came to like XI just as much as TOS. You have to remember that it's an entirely new alternate universe and Kirk is slightly different because of the way events played out, what with his father dying, his mother being absent, his brother leaving him when he was so young and the questionable way that his Uncle Frank treated him. So yes, he has much more of an attitude and I found him not very likable at first, but he's really the same person underneath, you just have to dig a little! I think if you read enough fanfic where they develop his character a bit more, you'll change your mind about nu!Kirk, at least I did. And don't even get me started about the Spock/Uhura thing. UGH. STILL hate it. Stupid screen-writers. >:( Of course fanfic writers have them break up or find a way to circumvent that little problem. ;)

I have been racking my brain to think of a good fic to convert you over to XI, but it's been so long since I've read some of them that I don't know which one covers all of the bases. :( Again, you might ask the same question over a kirkspock, I'm sure that you will get an even better answer than I've given you. :) Good luck and happy reading! ♥
