butterfly: (Trek (TOS) -- Posse)
[personal profile] butterfly
Before my most recent rewatch of the new movie, I watched the beginning of Wrath of Khan. After I came home from the movie, I watched the ending (and then immediately had to rewatch Search for Spock because I couldn't stop while Spock was dead, could I?).

In honor of that, have some TOS recs:

1. What the Heart Remembers by [livejournal.com profile] killabeez. It's about Spock recovering his memories in the lull at the end of movie IV and the man who is always at the heart of those memories. K/S.

2. Wilderness Were Paradise Enow by [livejournal.com profile] belmanoir. Set post-"This Side of Paradise". Jim wonders if Spock is unhappy on the Enterprise. K/S.

3. Graven Image by [livejournal.com profile] sans_pertinence. Mirror-verse Kirk/Spock. You know you want it.

And now some more new Star Trek (2009) recs: SPOILERS

1. Taking the Slower Path (we'll get there in the end) by [livejournal.com profile] black_eyedgirl. Kirk's first year of command and the slow path of becoming friends with Spock. Gen, preslash elements.

2. Past Sorrows, Present Joy by [livejournal.com profile] kagedtiger. Kirk wants to understand Spock better, so he enlists some mental help form Spock Prime. Still pretty gen.

3. Academic Discourse by [livejournal.com profile] seriousfic. Gaila nearly skips a class, definitely schools a teacher, and meets someone new.

4. A Formal Dance in the Bowling Alley by [livejournal.com profile] loneraven. Kirk gets to know his crew. Gen.

5. not in the stars but in ourselves by [personal profile] wintercreek. K/S/U. There's something wrong with Spock, and Uhura goes to Kirk to try to figure it out.

6. Stars Apart, Shine the Same by [livejournal.com profile] sineala. Kirk getting more from the mindmeld than intended and that leading to stuff with younger Spock is already a trope in this fandom. And I love it. I could read stories like this all day.

7. Potential, In Retrospect by [livejournal.com profile] hitlikehammers. Kirk, not knowing that Spock Prime already talked Spock into staying on the Enterprise, gives it a try himself.

8. Our Emotional History is in the Kitchen by [livejournal.com profile] raphaela667. Kirk takes Spock home to meet his mom. K/S.

9. When They Have to Take You In by [livejournal.com profile] vampychick. Sequel to "Earth Kids are Assholes". Set after the final battle, but before Spock Prime's conversation with Spock.

10. The Unveiled Secret by [personal profile] laurajv. Ambassador Sarek and Ambassador Spock have a conversation.

11. Murphy's Law of Jim Kirk Diplomacy by [livejournal.com profile] _seven_crows. Even on diplomatic missions, Kirk manages to get his ass kicked (seriously, he got beat up how many times in the movie? Hee.).

12. Break Down and Tell by [livejournal.com profile] betweenthebliss. Kirk has extra memories from Spock Prime and tries to avoid Spock by hiding in work. K/S.

On a side note, I've rewatched the ending of Glee about three times. Cute. The show's pace feels a bit like it's on speed, though. Maybe that'll improve in the actual season.

Additional note, I really don't understand the hate for the Bones finale. I thought it was clever, sweet, and good drama. I'm genuinely baffled at the hate.

ETA: I just found the perfect Sisko song. Dude. Now I just need to borrow my dad's DS9 dvds...

No kidding - the Star Trek fandom has got me terrified, and even the reboot stuff seems a little frightening - I'm used to my soft, cushy SGA fandom, where everything is recced and cross-referenced to death. This new fandom is so confusing! But I have found your recs, and they are clear and helpful, and you have good taste!

Also, I'm v. curious as to what Sisko's theme song. He's always been my favorite captain - there's something so "I don't have time for your shit" about him that I love.

i agree about the pacing, i hope it was just an artifact of being a pilot.
