Fanfic Wednesday: Boldly Ship With These 5 Star Trek Fics


Alright, y’all, we’re continuing our 9-week marathon of all things Star Trek, and it’s only fitting that we dedicate a week of Fanfic Wednesday to the fandom that gave life to a lot of what we’ve become accustomed to in fanfiction, namely slash shipping. Fun fact: the term slash fic was invented by the Trekker fandom.

So, set phasers to binge-reading, and settle in for the long haul.

Author’s Summary

Prompt: “TOS/Reboot. Jim is chipper about having time off for the holidays. He asks everyone if they want to spend time together but sadly, everyone ditches Jim over the holidays because they have plans. McCoy visits his daughter, Nyota visits her family, and everyone splits. Not knowing Spock has feelings for him, Jim doesn’t even bother asking if he wants to spend time together figuring he has something to do. Something cute, romantic with the boys spending time with one another and confessions.”

2.) So Wise We Grow by Deastar

“Commander Spock, we have located your son,” the Vulcan lady on the screen says, which would be great, except Jim can tell by the look on Spock’s face that he’s never heard of this kid before in his life. “If it is expedient, the child will be sent to join you on the Enterprise within the week.”
