February Star Trek Recs!  
As I mentioned on Monday, I've been reading a bunch of Star Trek fic this past month. It started when I decided to read a couple of fics I've had on my "Marked for Later" list for literal years. And, once I started reading, I couldn't seem to stop! I definitely go through phases of being intensely obsessed with different fandoms, and this is clearly another round of Spirk obsession! I've managed to find quite a few new gems. :)

Title: This is Not Forgiveness
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] hoosierbitch
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 1,422
Warnings: rough sex, biting, bottom!kirk
Summary: If he were the kind of person who got sad instead of angry he would have died when he was nine and his fingernails were breaking on the last rocky inch of solid ground.
I loved this. Gritty and rough and angry, but so very them (particularly the angrier reboot versions of them), and the ending is perfect.

Word Count: 2,111
Warnings: established relationship, praise!kink, D/s dynamics, bottom!kirk, sex toys

Warnings: established relationship, bottom!kirk, implied switching
Summary: “Oh fuck me,” Jim says, groaning. “Is this some kind of April fool's joke?” he asks, double tapping on his PADD to bring up the chronometer app for good measure. “Do Vulcans, like, keep a separate calendar and it's actually April the first today?”
- in which Kirk and Spock engage in an unusual battle of wits (that somehow ends in a battle of sex).
OMG, this fic is so much fun! Lovely and light with a wonderful relationship between Kirk & Spock.

Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] theproblematique
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock

Summary: Written for the Star Trek XI Kink Meme prompt: “Five people who loved Spock and the one he loved back. Ending Kirk/Spock. Can include OCs, Uhura, whatever. :) Bonus points for creativity with those five people!”
Wonderful fic that shows some of Spock's relationship with others throughout the years and, of course, ending with Spock's relationship with Jim.

Warnings: bottom!kirk, light D/s, post ST:Beyond

Warnings: established relationship, future!fic, bottom!kirk, rimming, mention of past character death
Summary: Jim wonders if the bond can endure the indignities of aging.
Really lovely fic that depicts Jim and Spock's relationship 30+ years into the future. I loved the issues they dealt with and how this was very much a fic about older characters. Really wonderful.

Title: Red Shift
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] theproblematique
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 10,201
Warnings: established relationship, implied switching, bottom!kirk, wall!sex, public!sex
Summary: Even on alien planets where it's socially acceptable, Spock doesn't do well with public nudity, particularly when his mate is involved. Fortunately for Jim, this usually leads to possessive wallsex.
Seriously hot fic with Kirk provoking Spock and getting more than he bargained for. I liked how the author explored potential difference between Humans and Vulcans when it comes to relationships, and the dynamic between Spock and Kirk was great.

Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock
Rating: NC-17

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 14,395
Warnings: bottom!kirk
Summary: A Starfleet captain should know he can't cheat death, just like a Vulcan should know that embracing emotion is the path to destruction. Spock doesn't believe in miracles, but the rules never seem to apply to Jim Kirk.
A story about breaking all the rules, breaking down, and rebuilding.
Oh, this fic is just wonderful! Really beautifully written fic that starts immediately after ST:ID and deals with Spock and Kirk coming together after everything that happened. Lovely.

Title: The King's Page

Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 16,498
Warnings: AU: Royalty, king!spock, bottom!kirk

Warnings: TOS, pon farr, fuck or die, bottom!kirk, rimming
Summary: Set after TMP. Spock’s impending pon farr makes him wary of agreeing to a second five-year mission, so Kirk agrees to lend a hand (so to speak) should the situation arise. What could possibly go wrong?
Kirk offers to help Spock out if pon farr occurs during their next 5 year mission and ends up enjoying it more than he thought he would...

Title: This is Probably a Terrible Idea
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] statamater
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 17,990
Warnings: bottom!kirk
Summary: "Getting Spock to freak out and throttle him was almost too much fun; partially because of the revenge and the nostalgia of it, but mostly because of the cheap thrill. "Pretty much everyone, given enough time, will want to screw Jim Kirk - species, gender, or previous sexual identity notwithstanding. So why the hell is it taking Spock so long to notice him?
Super fun and sexy fic with Kirk doing his level best to seduce and win Spock over with little success.

Title: On Restless Pinions
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] what_alchemy
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock, Stonn/T'Pring, past Spock/T'Pring
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,055
Warnings: het sex, some outsider POV
Summary: When Stonn goes into pon farr, T'Pring must break her bond with Spock, which has unforeseen consequences. But that's not where their story starts.
Really lovely fic that explores Spock's bond and experiences with T'Pring as well as T'Pring's happiness with Stonn and Spock's feelings for Jim. A little different from a lot of fics I've read, but I really enjoyed it.

Title: Astral Bodies
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] what_alchemy
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 23,265
Warnings: established relationship, de-aging, first time, underage, switching, bottom!spock, bottom!kirk, rimming
Summary: Jim knew what men liked: to possess and destroy. Planets, women, slim-hipped young men mucking out stables as distant Sol browned their glistening skin, it didn’t matter.
Really great fic that has Spock and Kirk in a super amazing relationship with Kirk makes an errant wish on a star and is aged back to 16 years old. I thought it was a really interesting take on the trope, though please do heed the warnings.

Title: For Gladness of You
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] kariye
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock, mention of past Spock/Nyota
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 51,055
Warnings: non-linear timeline, bottom!kirk, bottom!spock, switching, torture, rough sex, face-fucking, dirty talk, rimming
Summary: 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.
Really wonderful fic that spans the 5-year mission after the first movie. It's a very non-linear timeline, so we get glimpses of events in Jim's life before, as well, but the focus is very much on his and Spock's relationship and how it grows and evolves. Non-linear doesn't always work for me, but there was something so beautiful and captivating about how it was done here, and all the characters were really fantastically rendered.

Title: The Vulcan Heart (locked on AO3)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] obsidienne
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock, mention of past Spock/Nyota
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 104,655
Warnings: pon farr, fuck or die, bottom!kirk, implied switching
Summary: Where two halves make a whole… eventually. (Post-STID)
Oh, this fic is so good!! It's actually more like a series, with each chapter sort of it's own contained fic, but building off of the the previous chapters. I was expecting a slow build, but Spock and Kirk actually get together quite early on and we get to see them deal with life as they navigate bonding and love and grief and death, all while exploring space together. Really wonderful, captivating read!

Title: Veritas
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] theproblematique
Pairing(s): James T. Kirk/Spock, mention of past Spock/Nyota
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 174,747
Warnings: first time, bottom!kirk, implied switching, torture
Summary: Captain James T. Kirk and Lieutenant Commander Spock are hereby charged with negligence and wanton misconduct due to their emotional compromise with each other.
This fic is brilliant. It took me a couple of chapters to really get into it, but once I was, I was completely hooked! The characterizations are wonderful, the slow burn was perfectly paced, and the tension between Spock and Kirk sizzled. There was a perfect balance of plot and relationship development, and honestly, I just fly through the chapters wanting to see how everything was resolved.
