Last Sunday I went to see the movie with my daughter and youngest son and we were all three delighted; that was an awesome cinema experience! Absolutely something to go see in a theater and not wait for the dvd.
I've started looking for fics, which proved to be difficult because I hardly know any of the writers or the reccers in this fandom and I'm not even sure what exactly I'm looking for. What attracts me most in the movie is actually the way the team grows and all
the different bonds that are getting tighter. So here's a hap-hazard list of things I've been enjoying for totally different reasons and some links to rec-lists I've found useful to get me going.A vid'Circus'
Kirk centric vid, set to a Britney Spears song. Yes I know, watch it anyway, and make sure to watch the download, because the quality is so much better than the streaming files and it's so worth it! Makes me want to dance around the room and then run to the theater to go watch the movie again.Fics'The birth of slash'
(250 words, Kirk/Spock and Uhura, R)
Uhura gets off on watching Kirk and Spock get it on. More like 'The birth of a slasher'. Fast, hot and funny in a 'oh my god, that's us...' kind of way.'Just lie back and think of the federation'
(1,300 words, Kirk/Spock, NC-17)
An 'aliens make them do it' fic, but not in a traumatizing way. Silly, snarky and dirty.'An unorthodox approach'
(850 words, Spock/Uhura, PG)
Student Uhura approaches teacher Spock and it takes quite some hinting for him to get what she trying to get across. Sweet and thrilling.'Destiny'
(1,700 words, Spock/Uhura, Kirk/Spock UST, G)
The growing bond between Kirk and Spock as seen through Uhura's eyes. Painful and subtle, with lovely characterizations. 'To the best of my recollection'
(3,400 words, Kirk/Spock, R)
Spock helps Kirk when he's got trouble with the after-effects of the mind-meld that future-Spock performed on him. Kirk is not happy with the result. I love the concern each feels and shows for the other. A warm and thoughtful fic.'Nature, structure, variation of'
(1,500 words, Kirk/Spock, NC-17)
Kirk and Spock having sex in the Captain's chair. Kirk talking dirty and Spock trying to find logic in wanting this. Very satisfying PWP.'Taking the slower path (we'll get there in the end)'
(7,400 words, Spock/Uhura, Kirk/Spock pre-slash, PG-13 for violence and angst)
Exactly the kind of fic I was looking for; a team fic, focusing on the growing friendship between Kirk and Spock. Lovely slow build.reccersbutterfly
Lots of recs with a short but helpful description, different ratings, genres and/or pairings but especially a lot of Kirk/Spock.beachan18
Long and clear list of recs, different ratings, genres and/or pairings. New recs are marked as such. Includes a convenient list of kink meme fics.melloniel
Kirk/McCoy recs and some Chris/Zachary rps. Haven't checked those out myself, because those pairings aren't my thing, but I love her SGA recs so I'm sure what she's pointing out here is of the same quality.
