but jim kirk is someone else entirely

Star trek gothic

You watch an episode of the original series. The stardate is 3551.2. You watch the next episode. The stardate is 2017.
You look out of the window. You see that a Klingon vessel crashed on your garden. By the time you go outside, the vessel has doubled its size.
Someone tells you you must have sex or you will die. You don’t have sex. You don’t die.
You go home. There are 4 episodes and an entire spin off you’ve never seen before. You might be in the wrong universe.
There is a whale in your room. It does not look like a whale. It is a whale.
It just ate the Enterprise.
Jim Kirk steps out. His face keeps shifting. Sometimes, it’s your face. “We Are All Jim Kirk,” he says. You believe him.
Generations and Into darkness play simultaneously before your eyes. You do not want to watch them. You must watch them.
A voice speaks in your head. You must find your t'hy'la. When you do, they are kissing someone else. You might be in the wrong universe again.

st:id makes no fucking sense because we Dont See kirk and spock form the relationship that would lead spock to crying and losing all control, giving up pacifism, potentially about to Kill khan and only stopping when it could save Jim, but its just? there anyway? like aos has a multitude of problems Especially into darkness but this one hoo rlly pisses me off extra

Star Trek fic recs

for @reaprat​ who originally asked for this. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find the list i had of really good ones that are slow burn/t’hy’la fics (idk where they went, but I’ll update this when I find it) so here some others that I was able to find, in no particular order

(disclaimer: it’s been a while since I’ve read any of these and since most were sitting in my delicious account i might have tagged them to read at a later date since some of these are loooooong)

5 times Spock put someone else before his own needs, and one time someone else put him first.

Subtext by noodleinabarrel


Texting your Vulcan first officer in the middle of the night is never a good idea. Especially when you have an obsessive crush on said Vulcan.

The holidays are approaching and Jim is left entirely Spockless aboard the Enterprise when his First takes shore leave on New Vulcan. After some midnight pining, Jim sends a text he instantly regrets. That is, until Spock responds and willingly continues their textual communications to an inevitable conclusion.

5x Spock melded w/Kirk & 1x Kirk melded w/Spock by ksalterego


After that one meld with Other Spock, Jim Kirk is seriously obsessed by the thought that if Other Spock is really that fascinating, how much more awesome must his Spock be? Thus begins a journey of heartwarming epicness as Jim Kirk gets to know his Spock even better than he could ever imagine via meld after enticing meld.




Prince S'chn T'gai Spock of Vulcan, engaged to Prince James Tiberius Kirk of Earth through an arrangement made by their parents many years ago, writes to his intended on the day of his birth in the interest of diplomacy. Jim is not interested in diplomacy. Though there is no precedent set for the commencement of a written correspondence begun due to these specific parameters, I will strive to maintain, to the best of my abilities and with ample preparatory research previously conducted, the appropriate level of formality between us, based on a number of factors, primarily examples of a similar nature.

Vulcans are Fangirls Too



Kirk is a secret astrophysics genius who publishes under a pseudonym; Spock sends him fanmail. Shenanigans ensue.
Less fluffy than the title might imply, but a feel-good story nonetheless.

“Andorian wine is very potent,” Spock says. “How much did you consume?”

Jim chuckles. “Not enough. Not — hey.” His smile turns to a tight frown, and his gaze is startlingly clear when it finds Spock’s. His grip on Spock’s knee tightens. “Can you un-meld someone?”

>or: Jim’s got all of Spock Prime’s memories crammed in his head

  • Kirk/Bones

I Know That Voice



Len has been working a phone sex line to put himself through med-school. It’s moderately annoying, but it pays and they were willing to hire him despite the hours he couldn’t work while he was in class.

It wouldn’t have even been embarrassing if his best friend hadn’t called.




When Leonard shows up at Starfleet Academy, he wonders just how drunk he was when he met with the recruiter. He has no friends, misses his kid, and if drowning his sorrows doesn’t kill him, PT will. Then he meets Jim Kirk again.

Your Health Insurance Doesn’t Cover That



Dr. McCoy has been close friends with Jim Kirk for years. He’s also been in love with Jim for years. He just has to make sure that Dr. Gary Mitchell from Trauma doesn’t get his claws into Jim first.

Accidentally in Love

The five times Jim and Leonard accidentally get married, and the one time it wasn’t an accident.

wackosayshello  asked:

I need more headcanons about Jim Kirk being so there for his crew. Give me shit like Jim Kirk spending the first couple months of being Captain to learn everyones names and pronouns. Give me Jim Kirk putting anyone who doesnt respect someone else for their identity in their place regardless of the persons rank. Give me shore leave where someone won't leave a crew member alone while at a bar and as soon as Jim sees it he squares up and walks over with like the entire bridge crew backing him up

Imagine everyone on the ship knowing that as much as Jim acts tough, when it gets right down to it, he loves his crew more than he loves anything else. 

They know that when he says ‘My door is always open,” he means it.
