REC-A-DEE-DOO-DA REC-A-DEE-YAY, MY OH MY WHAT A WONDERFUL FIC  
Fore these two you have to thank, [personal profile] resa, because I have to thank her for 'em. ♥

Fandom: Star Trek Reboot
Title: Whore
Author: [personal profile] igrockspock
Character/Pairing: Gaila
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: None. (Not really.)
Status: finished oneshot
Summary: Gaila hates the word 'whore.' Luckily, so does someone else.

Lovely, lovely, lovely character piece. I can't say any more because that would spoil the fun of reading this short but brilliant ficlet. I fell in love with Gaila.

Title: Course Correction
Author: [personal profile] igrockspock
Character/Pairing: Gaila/Sulu
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: None. (Not really.)
Status: finished oneshot
Summary: Gaila hard and cynical, unwilling to trust. The person I imagine she was not long after her escape.

Oh, just continuing the Gaila love here, really. This is as faboulous as the first one but with much more - as resa called it "Orion politics" - and more insight into Gaila's character aswell as her past. And Sulu is a a proper - charming - gentleman.

THIS ONE IS FOR YOU, AND ONLY YOU  
Fandom: Star Trek Reboot
Title: Breaking Points
Author: Ragdoll / Keshka
Pairing: Kirk/Spock
Rating: PG-13 - NC17
Spoilers: For the movie, obviously and the author said that she made some references to TOS but in a way that 'for people who have seen TOS, the context will be enjoyable, but for those that haven't, it shouldn't detract any understanding from the story.' And I think that's true so far :)
Status: finished
Summary: When the Enterprise is asked to transport Vulcan colonists to their new home, Spock Prime comes with them. His presence changes everything – even the things Jim isn’t sure he wants to change.

I loved this and I can't wait for more (which is to come soon). I liked the style and loved the characterisations. Spot on and in character. And there's also a lot of humour to boot. The story is mostly told from Kirk's point of view (although it's not a first-person narrator) and it's really gorgeous. I also like the author's style and her choice of words very much. This made me really giddy while reading it. I was dying because of the thrill and because I just couldn't get enough.

Title: a love so much refined
Author: [profile] tasheila
Pairing: Kirk/Spock, Sarek/Amanda
Rating: PG
Spoilers: For the movie I'd say.
Status: Oneshot
Summary: a promt from [profile] st_xi_kink round two:
Spock/Kirk, Sarek + outsider pov: Sarek watches his son and Kirk together and is reminded of his relationship with his wife - and how deep humans can love - and how humbling it is to be the recipient of such emotions.

Beautifully done! I can't say much or I'd give the best parts away. Believe me when I say that this is one of the most beautiful and melancholy fics I've read so far for the STR fandom.
