pywren: Hey there, I already checked the tags and found nothing, so I thought I'd ask: Do you know of any stories where Jim is asexual? Again thank you for running this blog, because it's awesome and one of my favourites when it comes to new things to read.

Sorry for taking so long!

Practice to Deceive by thejabberwock

Jim Kirk spent years cultivating his playboy reputation. But as they say, oh what a tangled web…


The Right Person by sheepybaa

The first time Jim realized he was different was in ninth grade.

I know you asked for asexual but I found this so I thought I’d throw it in for good measure as I rarely see any with asexual/romantic characters :)

starfleet-is-our-bitch: Hey, I was wondering if you have ever read a fic where Spock loses his memory and the last thing he remembers is Kirk's hearing? I've been looking for it and I can't find it ANYWHERE.

The only thing that comes to mind is this goDDAMN FIC

Shine Like The Sun by kyliselle

Prompt-fill. An accident leaves Spock with amnesia. His last memory is bringing a cadet up on charges for cheating on the Kobayashi Maru - a cadet who, to his disgust, is now his bondmate. 

— Anonymous: If you guys are really busy, maybe you should try to find another blog member. You could see if anyone wants to, then choose someone from whoever expresses interest. I'm not suggesting replacement, just that maybe another set of spirk loving hands could help you guys fill more requests faster since you've been busy lately.

As Katri is absent until at least December, I’m on my own and I really dunno can I make such decisions by myself… But maybe? 

The thing is also that my fic reading has slowed down a lot since summer ended and lot of these requests are asking for new fics. I don’t want to endlessly rec the same ones over and over, which means it’s gonna take lots more time as I’m not the fastest reader and I have school. (Plus, we’re doing this for fun obviously.)

Also one thing that the fics I want to rec are more… quality, I guess? I mean, good writing, plot, character depictions… Unfortunately I nowadays don’t see that many good ones, but I do regularly check other rec lists if they have anything new to offer. 

So basically, this blog is very slow atm, if I don’t get more active then we’ll possibly look for new recruit(s)! Thanks for the suggestion :) 

— Anonymous: Hey, i just wanted to thank you guys for fufiling my 'mirror verse but inlove' request. I did actaully scour your tags page for fics like that with little succes before i asked. In doing so i mostly found some excellent kinky smut, so no loss there! Thank you so much! I'm not actauly sure that request managed to get under the mirror verse tag- i found it under pwp. It's possible just missed it, but i though id let you know just incase. You do great things!

Thanks! I’ll check the post tomorrow and make sure the tags are right :)

edit// apparently we have two mirror verse tags! so from today on the mirror verse tag is simply mirror :D

— Anonymous: hi! I noticed that there haven't been an new posts for awhile. is this blog done or are you guys just on vacation?

Sorry, we’ve been busy! Katri is super busy til end of the year and I have had some major exams this month. But tomorrow is the last one and then I’m back to try my best for filling your requests :) sorry for this silent period!

— Anonymous: Shy, first time/first date type things? In the mood for some adorable blushing, Vulcan or human :)


(I screwed up - I thought there was an identical request to inthewind101’s and so I screenshot it and deleted it and this is the closest one there was, sorry!!)

I’ll list my favorites, not sure if many of them are unfamiliar for you though! (This is the main reason I’m slow at updating - I hardly have anything new for you guys :( )

Entering Orbit by museaway

Jim escapes to Iowa to avoid the media frenzy following the Narada incident, but a late-night miscommunication results in Spock turning up on his front porch.

Chess, and Other Aphrodisiacs by ObsidianEmbrace

When Jim is brought up on charges of academic dishonesty, he decides to find out who his accuser is.

this one has the concept of t’hy’la

Everybody Hurts by twisting_vine_x

Six months after their confrontation with Nero, Jim is still devastated by what happened, and he blames himself for not acting fast enough. To make matters worse, working with Spock is still the most infuriating thing Jim has ever done, and he’s pretty sure he’s not going to last the mission without getting strangled again.


Only Good for Legends series by leupagus (& screamlet)

"Good night, Citizen Kirk," Spock says.
“Jim. Call me Jim.”
“Only if I do not have to arrest you again.”
“No promises, Detective.”

(I have a feeling this is going to become my Shine Like the Sun)

The Third Wheel by littlebirdtold

In which Cadet Kirk constantly crashes Cadet Uhura’s dates with Commander Spock and monopolizes his attention.

Life Is Something To Do (When You Can’t Get To Sleep) by jaylee_g

He’d heard the name Spock mentioned once or twice (or enough times that Jim had started to wonder why they didn‘t just replace the Zefram Cochrane statue out in front of the Academy grounds with a Spock one). Of course he had. Who hadn’t?

Objective Data by walkandtalk

A young Vulcan decides to find a mate for his guardian, Spock. After careful calculations, Cadet Kirk is obviously the superior choice.

TiMER by pmastamonkmonk

Live in the moment or wait for love. The clock is ticking.
— Anonymous: hello! first of all let me tell you this blog is my LIFE i look at your blog probably more than my own tumblr secondly art school AUs? do you have any idea how much i love you guys!

Hi! Thank you, that’s nice of you :)

Art school AUs… I couldn’t find any, but maybe you guys know some?

— Anonymous: Hi there! I'd love if you could help find this fic (I only remember bits and pieces but am dying to re-read it): It's set in Reboot-verse. Spock and Kirk have been avoiding each other (or one is avoiding, I forgot) because they/he can't control feelings/lust for the other, and suddenly they happen to be at the same spaceport/space station and they lock eyes, intensely, and all of a sudden Kirk runs away and Spock chases him and captures him just as Kirk reaches his hotel room.

I remember something along these lines but can’t recall the name… Anyone know this?

"Eclipse" sequels

I submitted this as a message and then realised I should’ve sent it from here.
I noticed under your Disability tag you have “Eclipse” by Aconitum-Napellus listed. I thought you may like to know she has the sequel, “Reconciliation” here:

and the final part of the trilogy, “Solution” virtually finished here:

Both also listed on AO3, but not yet on K/SArchive.


I remembered another blindness fic I meant to tell you about for your Disability tag, “Nightvisions”. Kirk this time:

One of the first K/S zones I ever read, over 20 years ago.
And may I say, I only found this page today, and I’m massively impressed by the amount of thought & organisation you’ve put into it - thank you!”


Hello! It seems submission box didn’t like your links either, but it’s alright as I found them rather easily. :D The rest of the series isn’t K/S but if anyone’s interested:

Eclipse by AconitumNapellus

Spock is blinded in an explosion on the Enterprise and relocates to Earth for his rehabilitation. While he grows used to his new world and finally returns to the Enterprise, he and the crew must find out if the explosion was an accident, or terrorism.


Reconciliation by AconitumNapellus

Part 2 of the Eclipse Series series


Solution by AconitumNapellus

Part three in the Eclipse Series.


and the Kirk one:

When Kirk is blinded by a Tholian weapon, Spock leaves the service to stay at his side.

An old school fan! Only in the Star Trek fandom :D But we’re delighted you enjoy our blog, thank you for your kind words! :)

PSA by katri

I’m sorry to say but I’m taking leave from the blog until at least to the end of this year because of hectic studies and freelance work. 

— Anonymous: do you know any where jim and spock have/adopt a child? mpreg is fine. preferable focusing more on after the child the born though.

The family tag right here!

"So I think I saw someone asking for modern day AUs a while ago? I’m like a few paragraphs into ‘This Trailer Park Is a Shithole but Goddammit, It’s Home’ by waketosleep and it’s already pretty promising. Like the author says, it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but it meets the crit!"

Thank you, we’ll put this in the tag!

This Trailer Park Is a Shithole but Goddammit, It’s Home by waketosleep

Jim Kirk is never going to get out of Sunnyvale Trailer Park but he’s not that bothered; his main goal in life is to find a scheme that’ll let him and Bones retire young with the least possible amount of work, and if he can keep from violating his parole at the same time, even better.

It would be a great plan if not for the interference of that jackass with the face tattoos looking for a piece, the nosy trailer park supervisor trying to send him back to jail and the new cop in town who seems strangely invested in Jim’s future.

— Anonymous: Your blog is a gift. That you so, so much for answering questions and posting links and everything that you do. You are a wonderfully helpful, kind-hearted sort of person. (People?) I don't know if you get that a lot or never but i needed to let you know. Thank you so much.

Thank you so much for your kind words anon! ♥

Yes, it’s people :D Five mods in all, Katri and I (Verna) are the new ones keeping this afloat.

— Anonymous: ...I'm offline for ONE MONTH cause of moving and accidentally joining a creepy kinda-cult-like organization and then having to run away from said organization and crashing on couches while I try to figure out how to get home and... and I check this blog and you guys recced one of my fics. (sniff) You guys just made my life a million times better and this has been a really stressful month, and I needed that. THANK YOU!!!

o_o sounds like a wild month, are you okay?

But you’re welcome, royal hun! ;)

faramirlovertheslasher: Pretty certain that anon was after Bragging Rights by Ragdoll over on the ksarchive.


Bragging Rights by ragdoll987

Two and a half years into his time at Starfleet Academy, Jim Kirk meets Lieutenant-Commander Spock, and the sparks begin to fly.
