However, today we have a sure winner. Two ships for the price of one! Well, three if you count the canon alt 'verse. ;)
Kirk and Spock. What is there really to say about them? There's a reason so many History of Slash timelines begin with them. Their chemistry is smoking hot, and there was always something about Spock's suddenly resolved pon farr that was a bit fishy. Right? Right.
And if you don't know what I mean, check out 'A Logical Look at Amok Time' by K'Sal, and then while you're at it, check out 'The Footnote' by Judith Gran. Don't you just love that kind of meticulous fannish analysis?
As if that isn't enough, the fanworks are pretty damn amazing too.
'Closer' (warning for non-con and nudity)
Reboot also has many awesome vids. I like these two in particular because they work as flip-side character studies of the Kirk/Spock relationship.
TREK REBOOT Kirk/Spock, 'Poker Face' by talitha78 (songvid)
TREK REBOOT Kirk/Spock, 'Circus' by butterfly (songvid)
So... which do you prefer? I know, I know, you want to vote for both Original Kirk and Spock and Reboot Kirk and Spock... okay then. If you insist.
I don't have the energy to do summaries tonight, but these are all favourites of mine. Consider it a pot luck, in which every choice is a winner!
- TREK REBOOT Kirk/Spock, 'ride that into the sunset' by waldorph (NC-17)
- TREK REBOOT Kirk/Spock, 'A Beginner's Guide to Vulcan Sexual Practices' by thingswithwings (NC-17)
- TREK REBOOT Kirk/Spock, 'So Wise We Grow' by captanddeastar (R)
- TREK REBOOT Kirk/Spock, 'cut and fucking paste' and 'Edit' by crimsonclad (PG-13)
I know you all have favourite Kirk/Spock fic, vids and art. Share the love, people. You know where the comment button is.
You are also welcome to leave recs/links for other ships on the all-ships-welcome post for this week (I'll do a round-up post at the end of each week):
PS: If any one wants DreamWidth codes, let me know. I have several to give away.
