Do you have any recommended TOS fics? Love your blog, btw!

Thanks nonnie!

Ok so for TOS I don’t have a lot but here are some:

Fulfilling the Needs of the One (Or the Both) by plaidshirtjimkirk

(TOS), rated t, 8740 words

Spock begins to wonder if his relationship with Jim has been one-sided in his own favor.

An old married Spirk fic written for the K/S Valentine Calendar. This story actually started and evolved from this anonymous writing prompt on tumblr: “Old Married Spirk where Jim teaches classes at Starfleet and Spock is an ambassador. Spock goes to visit Jim in his office and finds a student with a bit of a teacher kink being a bit too forward with Jim. Spock finds a streak of possessiveness he didn’t know he had.”

I follow her blog, she’s really into TOS and a really good writer so you should definately check out some of her other stuff too.

Waking by Cate Adams

(TOS), rated g, 721 words

Jim considers the events of the night before, waking to a new understanding of his relationship with his closest friend.

Gentlemen Alone by DeeGilles

(TOS), rated NC17, 32420 words

Spock, a married systems engineer from Vulcan, dutifully attended the VSA and married the woman his father arranged for him to marry.  Then one day his company sends him to San Francisco to help build galaxy-class heavy cruisers for Starfleet.  While there, he meets Starfleet’s galactic savior, fresh from the VGer crisis, Admiral James T Kirk, and Spock’s life is forever changed.

*sobs* so angsty but so worth it

A Millennium of Cadence by obsidienne

(TOS), rated e, 4111 words

When T'Pring rejects Spock, Jim chooses not to fight. 

God I miss this author, she kinda went away but she’s an amazing writer and I even used to follow her blog. 

Additionally: 

plaidshirtjimkirk also runs a TOS fic rec blog, thyla-recs,

there is also the TOS tag here at thesesimplefeels.

Hey, so this is pretty specific, but I was hoping you could direct me to a fic or two that feature a prominent proposal scene. It can be spur of the moment or planned in advance, a one shot or part of a longer story, but basically I'd appreciate some 'let's get hitched/bonded' fluff. Thanks in advance!

 Ok, you might hate me after this but there is fluff I swear, it’s just buried in angst and  … just … ugh. These boys are killing me. 

So first off (raises fics on platter like a peace offering or a sacrifice), there’s these ones on AO3, but I didn’t read them so they’re an unofficial fic rec (i.e. proceed with caution)

And then theres the heart stopping fic

Shine Like the Sun by kyliselle

(AOS), rated NC17, 25k words

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.

BUT THERE IS A PROPOSAL AND I’M LEAVING YOU A (only mildly spoilery) QUOTE SO YOU BELIEVE ME

“’Bond with me.’ Kirk stares at Spock in surprise. ‘You can’t be serious,’ he says.”

AND THERE’S MORE TO IT THAN THAT AND OHMYGOD

*spends a few minutes meditating so I don’t fly to pieces or fall apart or become the latest renewable energy source “Just give her fanfiction and she’ll power NYC for ten years”*

But theres also a cute proposal/ acceptance in:

The Bonds of Children by Reigen Doki

(AOS), rated t, 10682 words

Child AU. Spock and Jim were always the ones to choose their own destinies. Even when the universe was trying to choose for them. I think the implication that there is at least a little Kirk/Spock here is obvious.

I reread the end of this one regularly
