— 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.

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.
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.

— 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.

— 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:
