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.

— Anonymous: Hey! So I read a fic on here a while back, I looked through the tags but I can't find it. It was at the Academy. Kirk is trying to be friends with Spock and they leave gifts in each others apartments, one was socks? And a snowball fight with Mitchel?

I READ THIS TOO BUT I CAN’T REMEMBER Kirk saw Spock Christmas shopping and they discussed practical gifts and what to give Amanda etc and Kirk asked Spock to help with the snowball fight and they won

Anyone remember this one?

— Anonymous: Your role-reversal tag is frighteningly empty. Can I suggest Unwritten Fate by Cinnamon Secrets? It's on FF, permanent WIP, Captain Spock, and First and Security Officer Kirk.

You gave me high hopes before you mentioned WIP :D but thanks for the suggestion, the link is below!

Unwritten Fate by Cinnamon secrets


Jim considers what his best option is given that he is no longer the Captain of the Enterprise.

jazuthevulcanprincess: hey um im sorry, but do you know the name of a fic that is about Kirk and Spock investigating a planet and there are these....weird plants that release some kind of spore that attracts animals to go like INSIDE the plant I think and die and fucks with Kirk or spock or something??? weird plants????? k/s taking care of each other??? I thought I bookmarked it but I cant find it and i loved that one

Hi! I’m pretty confident you’re looking for this one:

The Lotus Eaters by

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.

Also thank you for your kind words in the other message! c:

— Anonymous: Hi! First of all, thank you for running this blog, it's fantastic. Secondly, I thought you might like to know that The Universal Constant author, she's moved to the blog jellf(.)tumblr(.)com, so you might want to update your link to the comic.

OH RIGHT THANKS I FORGOT I knew about the url change and forgot to update it, I’ll do that right away :)

theargonath: I am having the worst time finding a fic I read over a year ago. What I seem to remember is that the story eventually ends up on New Vulcan. Spock Prime is bonded and married (to I-can't-remember-who) but they somewhat serve as a model relationship for K/S. Spock Prime helps AOS Kirk and Spock build their bond with mind-meld sessions? I think McCoy shows up and the story eventually leads to AOS K/S pair-bonding. I know it is a multi-chaptered fic (over 100k I think). Any ideas? Thank you!!

Seems interesting, but doesn’t ring a bell :( I suggest trying the st-ficfinder

— Anonymous: There's this fic I read called When I Grow Up by rexlocked, but for some reason I can't find the rest of it and it's supposed to be three parts... Help?

There are no other parts as it has most likely been abandoned. It was recced since it works as a oneshot :)

— Anonymous: Do you know of anything where the one of them has a child with someone else?


— Anonymous: Possibly a long shot but do you know any winter solider AU fics?

We answered this back when Cap 2 came out and yes, when it comes to spirk, they’re still nonexistent :(

— Anonymous: anyone with them being dancers or being just really good at dancing?? i can't get that idea out of my head! thank you very much! *-*

Had to add this one, where Jim is totally taken back because Spock is so good :D


Love Is Strange by 

(AOS) Accompanied by his parents, Spock visits an Earth resort where Jim Kirk is a dancer. Dirty Dancing redux.

Le pas de deux by 

(AOS) Original prompt: “Ballet AU: It’s Nutcracker time for The Federation’s “Enterprise Ballet Company”. Young, bold, and rakish Jim Kirk is brought in to ramp up the Company’s end of year performances, after a not so great season earlier in the year. Spock, the lead Principal dancer is not pleased, but cannot help but be attracted to the charismatic Jim.”

An Explosive Combination by 

(AOS) Spock dances. Kirk dances. They “dance” together.

You Can Leave Your Hat On by 

(AOS) Bones sincerely regrets taking Spock to a strip club. But there’s a certain dancer there who catches Spock’s eye.

Dancing lesson gone right by 

(TOS) Kirk wants to teach Spock to dance. Turns out that Spock already knows.

TOS. A Christmas coda to “Whom Gods Destroy.” Namely, to that thing Spock implied he could do during Marta’s dance recital.
"The dance was mostly anchored to one spot, maybe an adjustment due to the lack of space, but still incorporated tight spins and steps across the floor. Everything below Spock’s waist was force and power, mostly short heel movements and swift combat postures, while above was fluid and precise arm gestures that spun patterns through the air."
— Anonymous: Hey! I'm looking for a specific fic where they're on an alien planet, and Jim drinks some of their alcohol, which Bones called "the blue stuff" or something like that, and some kidnappers killed the princess and tricked Jim into thinking the body was Spock's and Jim was the one who had killed him.

This was already answered on st-ficfinder (see it’s awesome community!) but I will copy the link for everyone interested.

AOS. Jim thinks he’s done the unthinkable.
— Anonymous: Mpreg, if you two lovelies fancy? Preferably potty and longer? Thanks so much.

We have mpreg tag, I myself don’t read that much of a mpreg, sorry.

— Anonymous: do you know any fic where jim is the captain and he isolates himself? or where he talks about how lonely it is to be captain?

Bases Loaded by kyliselle

AOS. As the Enterprise begins her voyage, Kirk tries to deal with the loneliness of being Captain. Luckily, he’s got Spock to help.
