Rating/Warning(s): T, canon character death

Why This Must Be Read: This is a gorgeous piece of writing about Spock and Ael falling into each other in the wake of the events of Generations. If you like Ael and the Rihannsu series, I really suggest this one.

Pairing: Christine Chapel/Spock
Fic Title: Your Spirit's Still Delight
Author: [ profile] havocthecat
Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: AU, episode-related, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: An outstanding rewrite of the TOS episode of Amok Time. [ profile] havocthecat takes the events of that episode, originally written back in the 1960s where people had a very different mindset, and, well, updates them (for lack of a better word). Christine is brilliant in this story, showing just how fierce a woman can be on a starship. The connection that she has with Spock is also amazing, as is the other subplots woven into the story. A brilliant fic, one I firmly think would have ended up on our television screens if Amok Time had been written and aired today.

Pairing: Uhura/Spock
Fic Title:Pride and Logic
Genre: SciFi Romance;action;angst

Why This Must Be Read: This writer has taken the world of Pride and Prejudice and introduce the Star Trek players. It's really cool how she has taken the old story and worked the new morals of the crew into a believeable and entertaining version of the classic.

Fic Title: The Disobedience of the Heart
Author: Spock Jones
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Adventure/Romance
WIP?: Complete
Special Rec: 24/31

Why This Must Be Read: this fic is, technically, set in TOS, but i’ve only ever seen the reboot and this fic fits nicely into that universe too. i like kirk here – he’s funny and capable. this author avoids the unfortunate fannish tendency toward writing uhura as a bitch, and instead goes for the smart, funny, butt-kicking canon character. well written, and pretty succinct in 5 chaps. it’s worth a read.

Fandom: Star Trek (both Original Series and Reboot)
Character: Dr. Leonard H. McCoy – “Bones”
Pairings Included in Manifesto: No real pairings in the blurb, maybe in the recs, but you will see Jim Kirk and Spock. It is impossible to deal with any one of these men without the other two making an entrance.
Warning?: I know this is for a Het community and not a Gen one, and I will rec some pairing fics, but this character’s highest and best moments have always been in doctor/friendship/gen mode.

Fic Title: "Doomed to Repeat"
Author: [ profile] djinn_fic
Link: Part One of Seven, click on "Next Entry" to get to Part Two and so on.
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Angst and Romance, novel length at 44,000 words.
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of the most complex, layered characterizations of Christine Chapel I've encountered in this fandom. She's smart and smart-mouthed, ambitious and a loyal follower, has a daddy-complex, likes to sleep with her bosses and falls in love too quickly. She likes sex, too. I found [ profile] djinn_fic's versions of the other characters just as compelling as her Chapel.

The story slots neatly into canon seasons one through three, following a slightly alternative episode order. I couldn't put this down once I started it.

Fandom Category: Star Trek TOS
Pairing: Spock/Uhura; Scotty/Charlene Masters; McCoy/Chapel 
Fic Title: The Herald
Author: Spockchick
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13/Dark themes
Genre: Mystery/Supernatural
WIP?: Yes 

Why This Must Be Read: This story is so very different from any of the SU TOS stories I have read.  The writing is lyrical,sad and oh so beautiful.  There are dark themes pertaining to a child and abuse of a child's rights but it is approached well within context of this story.  Don't know if this story has been rec'd but it is most definitely a must read for anyone who loves the SU pairing and even those who do not.

Pairing: Spock/Uhura
Fic Title: Happiness At Least
Author: Spock Jones
Link: Happiness At Least
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: This is an extremely well-written story that explores what would have happened if Kirk, Spock, Uhura, and McCoy hadn’t made it back through the Guardian of Forever. The story isn’t just a romance; it also contains elements of action-adventure and everyone is in character. You can close your eyes and imagine you’re watching the old series.

Pairing: Sarek/Amanda

Why I love this pairing to teeny tiny pieces:  Sarek and Amanda, for the unitiated, are the parents of Spock. Amanda is a teacher, and Sarek is the Vulcan Ambassador to Earth.  As recurring characters in both TOS, TAS, TNG, AOS, and a number of the movies, they have just enough backstory to create fertile ground for further offscreen adventures. I adore them because they have a mature relationship that has obviously survived a lot of rough patches. They are both stubborn and passionate and often disagree on things (mostly involving Spock), but remain committed to each other. Their differences in personality and high-profile relationship make them perfect for everything from serious plotty fic to domestic fluff and comedic stories based on the inevitable culture clashes that will come from pairing a human and a Vulcan.

and now, the fic! )
