Spirk Fic Rec List: 16 Spirk FanFics I Enjoyed

Most of them are based on the AOS universe, and the ones that are based on the TOS universe can be read as AOS universe. Make sure to read the summary and author’s notes before reading!

AU - Different first meetings

Kirk and Spock meet because Spock’s phone number gets written on a toilet cubicle wall in Starfleet Academy and Kirk starts sending him text messages!! This was so cute to read.

Ok so Spock wants to stop his Starfleet carreer and go back to Vulcan, until he meets Kirk and gets the BIGGEST crush on him.

Basically to keep the Enterprise, Kirk has to have a fake relationship with someone to show Starfleet that he is actually capable of being in a serious relationship. (It’s better explained in the fic where it actually makes sense.)

Warning: At first Jim is against the idea of him being gay because he’s so convinced that he’s straight. But throughout the fic he finds himself beginning to understand that he’s actually bisexual. It may look like a ‘straight with an exception’ fic at first but it’s really not! He just takes his time discovering his bisexuality.

Canon compliant

This fic totally fits in the AOS canon timeline, now Kirk is just sercretly a astrophysics genius who publishes under a pseudonym (Dr. Kirkpatrick I MEAN) and Spock has the HUGEST crush on him. This was so fucking fun to read. Spock is SO obvious in this fic.

After the mind meld with Spock Prime, Kirk starts to feel cold. It’s like he can’t live without melding with Spock… this was so good.

Spock and Kirk are together but Spock doesn’t really touch Kirk’s hands. So immediately Jim thinks he’s doing something wrong but the reality is that Spock gets SUPER horny from touching hands.

Basically they swap bodies and end up fucking each other like that… this was oddly good.

Spock is REALLY good at giving back rubs. You know how this is gonna end.

Again ‘Spock is REALLY good at giving massages. You know how this is gonna end.’ because? Spock is just amazing at massages apparently.

Kirk gives Spock a kitten and Spock with a kitten is just the cutest shit in the whole universe. 

It’s cold on the Enterprise and Kirk starts standing closer and closer next to Spock. For body heat of course.

Spock can’t contain his feelings for his captain anymore and starts stealing Vulcan kisses.

Warning: Some can consider this dub/con since Spock basically gives Kirk Vulcan kisses without asking him first.

On a hive mind planet (like in Beyond) the crew ends up sharing their thoughts and memories for a night.

Warning: Mentions of Chekov and Bones being in love.

Spock and Kirk are imprisoned and basically Kirk ends up almost dying. SO MUCH ANGST.

Warning: Mentions of torture.

They end up on a planet inhabited by a nudist colony. Kirk has no problem adjusting to their lifestyle. Also pubic hair gets dyed.

Warning: Might be a little OOC since I have no idea if Kirk would actually go totally nude just because the colony on the planet does it. Also Uhura might seem a bit OOC as well since she ends up going nude as well (though not as extreme as Kirk).

Spock starts asking Kirk about his previous sexual encounters with men. Spock is very insecure and just wants Kirk to love him ok??

Warning: Mentions of previous sexual assault and child abuse.

A Massive Mckirk Rec List

Because I’ve dug myself in such a deep hole of Mckirk trash, I decided to make a short fic rec list. Well joke’s on me because turns out I’ve read a lot more Mckirk fics than I thought (and this isn’t even all of them)… Consider this a gift for the holidays.

Notes: all fics are listed alphabetically; ** = favourite

Ashes in Supernova by geishateahouse | 1.5k, T

Bones didn’t take Jim on the Enterprise because it was against regulation, Jim was grounded. It was the last mistake he would ever make. (I didn’t know my heart could smash into a thousand pieces in 1.5k words.)

Baby Can’t You See (You Belong With Me) by StilesInTheGlade | 2k, T

Leonard McCoy was one of those people who hated the very idea of high school. Holy shit, man. He wanted nothing to do with any of it. Until, of course, James Fucking Kirk, captain of the football team, decided Leonard was cute. (Just. Adorable.)

The Ballad of Jim and Bones by neko_fish | 26k, T

It was the summer of 1985 when young Jim Kirk’s life changed forever. After tumbling down a hill, deep in the woods, he ended up receiving help from the most unlikely people. (Okay the tree concept sounds absurd but I promise you it is sweet and heartbreaking and just amazing.)

By Any Other Name by canistakahari | >1k, G

Leonard is a barista. Jim frequents his coffee shop, but it’s not for the coffee. (Because every rec list has to have a coffee shop au right?)

The Damn Balcony Scene by neko_fish | 4k, T

Leonard gets to know his downstairs neighbour because of a pink and green polka dotted sock. (I love this fic so so much. Hilarious and sweet.)

kirk/spock fake relationship recs

Oh, you know how it is, just re-reading a bunch of Kirk/Spock fake relationship fics. Here are my favorites, all AOS, in decreasing order of how much fake relationship there is:

The Marrying Kind, by spicyshimmy | Mature | 42,318 words | While on a diplomatic mission to Delta IV, Jim flirts too much; Spock discovers the only logical solution to avoid the complications of jealousy between ambassadors is to allow the inference that Jim is already spoken for.

a sequence that you never learned, by annataylor | Explicit | 64,669 words | When Jim gets it in his head to adopt an eight year old Vulcan, Spock presents a logical solution to the issue of Jim’s humanity: marriage to a Vulcan citizen.

Dynamic, by coffee666 | Explicit | 16,970 words | Jim is tired of the crew assuming he and Spock don’t work well together just because they happen to disagree a lot. To prove them wrong, Jim convinces Spock they should start dating. Playing up their romantic relationship in front of the crew for spite should be fun. The hard part is that they’re both secretly crushing on each other.

When Light Shines, by awarrington and blue_jack | Explicit | 15,677 words | Kirk and Spock are negotiating Federation entry with the Athosian government while the Enterprise is away on delivery duties, when one misunderstanding leads to another.

the warp and weft of your being, by tardigradeschool | Teen | 7,697 words | When getting legally married to Spock is the only way to keep him on the ship, Jim is more than willing to do so. (In fact, upon reflection, it turns out that there are very few things he wouldn’t do for Spock.)

Challis, by yeaka | Teen | 3,968 words | Spock weasels into Jim’s mission via Mrennenimus Prime’s strange traditions.

the comfort you drew (from the light of the stars), by tardigradeschool | Teen | 5,331 words | When Jim agreed to pretend to be in a relationship with Spock, he didn’t realize exactly what he was signing up for. (See: incompetent aliens and broken bones. It’s not great, but Spock is.)

Not In Love Song, by waldorph | Explicit | 2,779 words | The five times Spock wasn’t in love, and the one time he couldn’t deny it anymore.

Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours), by kianspo | Teen | 10,927 words | In which Spock contemplates the laws of attraction and realizes what a slippery slope that is only after he has already fallen. There’s no help for him now.

A Massive Spones Rec List

The Spones fandom is made up of some of the most talented people but is tiny and in need of more content. Due to this fact, there are significantly less Spones fics so I searched extra hard to compile a good, lengthy list of fics.. and somehow managed to find way more fics than I did for my Mckirk one?? Why am I such trash, help I need a life.

(Listed alphabetically: ** = favourite)

Addressed to the Damn Doctor by ElloPoppet | 2.5k, T

Spock writes McCoy a letter of confession, despite not quite knowing how to write a love letter. (A super sweet insight into Spock’s mind, especially on his thoughts on the Enterprise’s resident doctor.)

Best Medicine for the Worst Patient by gammadolphin | 8.5k, T

It’s a special kind of hell, becoming obsessed with the laughter of a man who barely even smiles unless he’s high or dying of blood loss. Leonard doesn’t handle it particularly well. (A hilariously frustrating fic in which Bones becomes a little too obsessed with trying to hear Spock laugh just once more.)

Blues March by IntuitivelyFortuitous | 7k, T

Leonard McCoy sees his friends bleed. He loves the blood when it is inside them, flushing their cheeks and warming their skin. When it colors his hands on the operating table, he can think of little but the time he has with them, and a minute is too long to waste. He’s not going to let Spock get away that easily. (Gruesome and sad yet somehow really sweet.)

The Body by therev | 13k, T

McCoy’s consciousness is transferred into an android body after a fatal accident. Spock helps him remember the man he used to be. (Wow a really creative and fascinating fic that could have gone totally wrong if it hadn’t been written by such a talented author.)

anonymous asked:

do you have any spirk fic recommendations? i am desperate for some spirk fic. thanks!

You can find all my spirk recs here, to which I have to add these lovely fics that I read in the past few days:

Objective Data by walkandtalk NR  22,369 

A young Vulcan decides to find a mate for his guardian, Spock. After careful calculations, Cadet Kirk is obviously the superior choice.

I Know You Better by CaityCat  T  4,620

The people of Twilar are a newly warp-capable species that has caught the eye of the Federation for more reasons beyond its planets’ deep, untouched mines and strategic placement along the border of the neutral zone. The Federation wants Twilar as an ally, but the people of Twilar have a very specific criteria for what makes a leadership team functional.

When Kirk and Spock make First Contact, they are immediately thrown into a globally broadcasted questionnaire competition which will decide whether of not the Twilar join the Federation.

Or, alternatively, Spock and Kirk play a high stakes version of The Newlywed Game.

We took care of it. by Scientia_Fantasia  M  3,720

“Jim, what the hell? You look like you got attacked by a coyote!”

And Then I Let It Go by kianspo  E  10,632

Post-Star Trek Beyond. The crew of the Enterprise gets a breather while they are waiting for their new ship. Jim uses the time to do something he had sworn he would never do.

Measure of Happiness by writeonclara  M  38,279 

When Spock chose Starfleet over the Vulcan Science Academy, he had not anticipated cohabiting with the most illogical, irrational, emotional human he ever met.

On the flip side, Jim never asked for a Vulcan chaperone, especially one as snotty as Spock, son of Sarek.

A Starfleet Academy AU in which Spock adapts to human life, Jim learns very, very quickly never to play a prank on a Vulcan, and there are far too many people after Jim Kirk’s life.

In the Barren Wasteland by bexbedex  M  8,338

Spock has always been different. Neither wholly Vulcan nor human. He never suspected though, that his differences would set him so far apart.

In the Shadows by scifishipper M  25,202

Accused of treason and stranded on Vulcan, Cadet Jim Kirk is offered a solution to his problems: bond with Ambassador Sarek’s son, someone he has never met. When he finally meets his betrothed at the ceremony, the Vulcan’s face is disfigured by cruel scars. Now, penniless and trapped, Jim finds himself committed to a reclusive stranger with a dark past. Has he sealed his fate forever or is there hope for the two of them to find love?

Wrong Number by yaoichan12  NR  23,518

Spock develops a sudden friendship with a mysterious guy, Jim, after Jim mistakenly calls him. They agree to only talk via communicator and not to reveal too much personal information as to keep their identities mysterious and the situation fun. After a while of flirty (and perhaps naughty) conversations, Leonard convinces Jim that they should just meet already.
Spock agrees to meet, but has second thoughts when he arrives and sees how gorgeous Jim is. Spock doesn’t think Jim would still be attracted to him so he turns and leaves. Jim is not happy.

Happy reading! 

So, last week I read @tinsnip’s Disconnect (a fantastic and rather devastating Deep Dish Nine adaptation of The Wire) and its sequel, Splice … and they’ve been occupying my brain ever since.  I made a little excerpt into a comic to try and work out some of my feelings.

So many feelings, dammit.

(Deep Dish Nine is the multi-author AU where DS9 is a pizza parlor and all the characters are human.)

SO I’ve been going through the k/s tag on ao3 and I’ve decided to list some of my favorites (as requested by my mother allison @wearitcounts)!!! 

All of these have a happy ending, even if they might be angsty in the middle!!! Happy spirking!

Fic Rec: You Don’t Have To (Say Yes) by luminousbeings

Summary: The abridged sexual history of James Tiberius KirkOr, Jim’s varyingly unhealthy idea of what sex is supposed to be (a it-gets-worse-before-it-gets-better story)


This is one of my favorite Kirk-centric stories. The Tarsus IV scenes are written in such a memorable and powerful way. If you haven’t read it, just READ IT NOW. 

If anyone is looking for some AMAZING Star Trek books to read, these are the best!

Okay, these books are probably the most spirkiest books I’ve ever read without actually being fan fiction and well… They’re AMAZING. literally Spock ‘marks’ Jim in the first chapter. And yes that’s as homosexual as it sounds. Spoilers aside, Myrna and sondra have really captured the essence of Kirk and spocks deep care and affection for each other, and that they’ll be there for each other through thick and thin. The plot is an interesting one which continues to pull you in, although the pace is rather fast and can get quite confusing at times.

Overall great read and I give it 4 stars (…5 for spirkiness)

If you haven’t read them yet, GO READ THEM, YOU WONT REGRET IT!

brawls’ star trek fic recs

kicking it old school, over here. i watched st:b and i immediately dove straight back into reading some of my old fav star trek fics. i haven’t yet read anything new, bc i haven’t really had a chance to delve into the newer stuff – i’ve been too happy mucking around in this very familiar puddle of nostalgia. anyway, @senator-benamidala asked me for a couple recs, so i figured i could cobble this together! there’s just so many wonderful fics – this is just skimming the surface of the things i have reread multiple times.

if you’ve got any new ones to share, please send them my way, i’d love to read them.

A quick gb thing~

I don’t know why I ever paused drawing star trek guys ds9 is the love of my life




I could have taken a picture of every bloody page xD

Not even a chapter in and Spock marks Jim- bloody marks the fucker…

(In all seriousness- the book is a piece of art, beautiful well thought out plot and structure with an enticing villain as the cherry on top. Bit fast paced for my taste and I think it would have been amazing if the book had been a massive hard back xD)

I rate it overall 4 out of 5 tribbles! (5 for spirk content! ;))

Title: your body drowning in gravity

author: Ofthenight

Pairing: K/S AOS

Length: 20748

Content: NC-17

Summary:  You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and he won’t tell you that he loves you, but he loves you.

Overall: The summary doesn’t really do it justice. This fic was great. First of all, the author says that English is not their first language but I HAD NO FUCKING IDEA BECAUSE IT WAS SO WELL WRITTEN. If beautifully needless emotional angst is not your thing then I wouldn’t read this, but it is so MY thing so I loved this. Jim has horribly low self-esteem and Spock is emotionally stunted and this is about their developing established relationship. Thoroughly enjoyed.

star trek & mckirk fic rec list

for the wonderful @gravelgods, i’ve put together a list of my favourite star trek and mckirk fics that i’ve read over the last 3 years.

u can find this list here on google docs (or on tumblr if u don’t mind block text/less paragraph spacing). not all tags on each fic are listed, so please check the tags on the actual fic page before reading.

The big KiScon list of K/S fic recs!

At KiScon in October 2015, Carolyn Spencer and Amanda ran a panel asking those attending what their three favourite fics are, and why.  We asked them to write them down, and Carolyn kindly collated them all.  Amanda compiled a list online with links, and sent this out to all KiScon attendees to add more.  What we now have are 212 stories, sorted into TOS, TOS AU, Reboot and Reboot AU and TOS/Reboot crossover.  While there are a lot of very well-known stories included, there may be some you’re less familiar with, or there may be old zine stories you weren’t aware are available online.

You can find them all here on a Google spreadsheet.

If you have any recs you’d like to add, please let us know. :-)

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
