Situation/Scenario: Reader is trapped on a shuttle that is
about to fail/explode/fall out of the sky (I don’t know how to word that) And
the crew is struggling to get her back on board. She is beamed out at the last
second. Jim has already convinced himself she is going to die, she doesn’t, he
proves how much he needs her.
Warnings: Almost death, Angsty, smut, romance, unprotected
sex, AN UNEDITED HOT MESS
Author’s note: Sooo, I have not written smut since I had a
kpop smut page. I apologize in advance, my skills are ruuustty.
“Y/L/N to enterprise!” You yelled into your communicator. “I
don’t think the shuttle is going to make it!” You yell as you try to pilot the
damn thing closer to the enterprise. The ship had stopped at a class m planet
to assist in delivering medical supplies to a research team. Everything had
gone well, till it was time to return to the enterprise. The team on the planet
had their pick of some supplies, and you had the remaining on the shuttle with
you. You were supposed to have another crew member go down with you, but you
had done this very trip to this team a few times before and didn’t feel you
I honestly love that 99% of the Star Trek fandom is so… nontoxic.
Yeah of course there’s the shadowlands and the elephant graveyard where the light doesn’t touch and anon hate roams wild, but compared to a lot of other fandoms it’s not only “chill” but widely accepting and outwardly kind!
Whenever I have a conversation about characters or ships or headcannons even if others disagree with me there’s an initial attitude of “oh huh I haven’t looked at it like that!” and then a discussion/debate which might not end in agreement but usually ends with a “cool thought process!” and that is SO underrated.
I feel so non-stressed when engaging with most other Trekkies because even if I ship Spirk and someone ships Spuhura I can still admit that Uhura’s a badass who cares about Spock a LOT and the other person can admit that Kirk flashes Spock bedroom eyes whenever the Vulcan makes a snarky comment.
And people share fanart and fanfics and have such nice things to say and they generally just enjoy the content without tearing others down! And if someone says “your fave is problematic” there’s a general willingness to listen and accept certain things and then continue to enjoy the content without needing to shame anyone for that enjoyment!
I know this is a bit sappy but I just love that a show about a future where everyone is treated with kindness and respect brings that out in so many people *today* because we’ll never get where we want to go if we don’t work towards it now, but I think we are working towards it, and I know Gene would be overjoyed to see that his work has led to so many good people doing good things.
