Hey all! Mel here to share a few of the Star Trek fics I love. Trek fic is a juggernaut. I mean You have all the difference series, to movies and books. It’s a lot. To make it simple I’m going to keep it in the original series with the two ships I’ve shipped since I was a child.
First up we have the couple that just makes sense to me. That would be Montgomery Scott (Scotty) and Uhura. Now you have to understand that I watched Trek 4 (the one with the whales) at least 50 times as a kid. I LOVE THIS MOVIE. Now for young Melissa, I always assumed that these two were a couple in this movie. Don’t ask me why but it’s stuck with me ever since. I mean in my mind Uhura’s the only one who understands Scotty when he’s really, excited and talking fast. And Scotty treats Uhura like the princess she is. Can’t you just picture him looking at her in awe while they eat? So here’s what I read when I want a quick fix of these two:
Kirk and Spock are my home base fandom. I have so many rec’s for these two that I wouldn’t know where to even start so I’m going to settle for two.
Don’t Stop Believing By Kianspo
The story follows Spock from his own days as a cadet at Starfleet Academy to the ‘present day’ when he’s Kirk’s first officer and the Enterprise is on its five-year mission. Essentially, the story of Spock’s first real love followed by the story of him finding the love of his life. Ad astra per aspera.
This story, folks. THIS STORY. I love it so much I’ve followed it for 6 YEARS waiting for it to be done. It’s just a good story. It’s focused on Spock and you get to see him grow and evolve as a person. Yes, I know it’s like way long but it’s not over written? Just trust me, ok?
How High the Moon By Kyliselle
After the destruction of Vulcan, Spock shielded his mind to protect it from his broken bond with T’Pring. Little did he know another bond had already formed in its place.
This is the fic That started it all. It’s what brought me into the lovely world of Trek Fic, gave me my best friend (Nothing build a more solid foundation for a friendship like sharing fic), and opened the door to so many other things. That’s the amazing about fandom.
There are so many other fics out there. Ships that are epic in their own right. I shared mine let me know if you have some! Take a chance and read something new and remember the tags on AO3 are your friends.
