A kink meme for Star Trek XI. There are a good chunk of TOS related fics however. Not only has this somehow achieved upwards of five thousand comments in under two weeks, but it somehow has managed to have a very good excellent-to-poor fic ratio. Some of these authors are just amazing.
It's currently on part fourteen and growing every day, and the excellent-to-poor ratio is, if not the same, better.
KCS usually does one-shot and drabbles, but everything written is spot-on. The stories have an excellent grasp of canon - I'd definitely say the stuff has an Original Flavor. What's unusual about the author in many ways is that the stories don't try to set up a particular ship or even focus on a particular character - while most of it is Big Three-centered, you'll find that they range all over. Definitely enjoyable work, go check it out!
Seconded by scarletclarinet. Brilliant writing and characterization. Lots of short pieces, but author has an admitted habit of taking short pieces and expanding them far beyond the original scope (e.g. the Insontis series). Plots vary from original to filling in the gaps before, during or after canon episodes. Absolutely wonderful to read.
Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.A Trekkie's Tale by Paula Smith.
Synopsis: Kidnapped and then mysteriously released by the Romulans, Kirk is travelling back to Earth to stand trial. Can his friends, and the rest of the crew of the Enterprise do anything to help this self-confessed traitor?
Synopsis: The effects of the Kolinahr have left Spock divorced from his body, unable to fully express what he knows he and Kirk should be. But when V'Ger returns, demanding Spock, Kirk will fight very Hell itself to save him - and to keep him for eternity.
Parings: Technically Kirk/Spock, but no sex, could be interpreted as seriously deep friendship.
Synopsis: A story about regrets and second chances. Faced with the news of Kirk's death in Generations, Spock tells the story of a thirty-year friendship that defied all categorization. (Crossover with Star Trek: TNG) Originally posted in 1996.
Synopsis: When Jim Kirk turns seventy, his life as star-ship captain seems farther away than ever before, but soon he is forced to realize that domestic life on Earth might lead to events which are more disastrous to him than most deep-space missions.
Synopsis: After retrieving Kirk from the interspatial rift of "The Tholian Web", Spock realizes his oath to Starfleet and his service aboard the Enterprise are in jeopardy because he has denied to himself–and withheld from Kirk–a certain truth about the nature of the Vulcan relationship called "t'hy'la."
Synopsis: The King's Speech, Star Trek-style. In a world where the Vulcan Federation annexed the outnumbered and outgunned Earth to rescue the planet from its war with the Klingons, Spock is King George VI, Kirk is the Queen Mother, Saavik is Princess Elizabeth, Dr McCoy is Lionel Logue, Sybok is Edward VIII, Ty'Lena is Wallis Simpson, T'Pau is the Archbishop of Canterbury, and Sarek is King George V. The story echoes the film - and the history it was based on - without being a slavish copy.
