Non-McCoy Star Trek Rec Master List (Updated 10-08-2010)

This list will be continually added to. However, after the initial posting, I'll be making separate postings with all the updates. Feel free to give me the links to any non-McCoy pairing fics you feel that I should recommend.

New additions are marked by the symbol newtrek.

TOS = The Original Series. For this category, I also include the first six [6] movies in this.
AOS = Alternate Original Series. This will include any stories based out of the eleventh [11] Star Trek movie and any future sequels with this particular Enterprise crew.
Ratings/Warnings:
FRC — Fan Rated Suitable For Children
FRT — Fan Rated Suitable For Teenagers
FRM — Fan Rated Suitable For Mature Persons
FRAO — Fan Rated Suitable For Adults Only

Authors

Djinn
[livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic / Djinn's Lair] - I could go through and individually list all of the stories I love, but that would be pretty much all of them. Just go to this site for much Chapel/Spock and Chapel/Kirk love. I haven't looked at the stuff outside of TOS yet, but given the quality of the TOS fic, I'm sure that it's well worth a read.

[livejournal.com profile] cards_slash
I'm a sucker for her McCoy/Spock, most notably her series beginning with FML. Then again, I'd never say no to her Kirk/McCoy, either. The threesomes? They also rock. Go check for yourself!

slash4femme
[[livejournal.com profile] slash4femme / [dreamwidth.org profile] slash4femme] After you go through this list, {which some of slash4femme's fics are on} head over to her journal and read all you can devour. I'm especially a big fan of her McCoy/Spock Prime fics. Beautiful work.

Stories



Amanda/Sarek


The First Year [location: personal archive]
author: T’Lea and Selek
source: TOS
rating: FRAO
summary: Sarek researches the Terran concept of an anniversary, then formulates a plan of action for celebrating his first wedding anniversary with Amanda.
why: Not enough people realize just how fucking hot this pairing can be. Let's hear it for wild and kinky married sex!

Heart Has Reason [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] the_arc5
source: AOS
rating: FRT
summary: There is little to be gained by observing her, aesthetically, intellectually, or socially. He learns this quickly, much of it out of her actual presence, and resolves to focus on a more profitable subject. Then, he meets her.
why: For some reason, I find the ideas on how Amanda and Sarek got together extremely fascinating.

The Native [location: ff.net]
author: StarTrekFanWriter
source: AOS
rating: FRT
summary: The relationship that started it all - Sarek/Amanda. How a logical guy like Sarek fell for a human, and why he would defy his people to marry her.
why: It's a very long easy build up that feels very natural without sacrificing drama and angst.

Not the Desert, Not Repenting [location: dreamwidth]
author: [dreamwidth.org profile] igrockspock
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: Sarek and Amanda, alone in a moment of the night. Inspired by the Mary Oliver poem "You do not have to be good / you do not have to walk on your knees / for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting./ You only have to let the soft animal of your body / love what it loves."
why: You can almost feel Sarek subtly changing his mindset to fit around Amanda. It's one of those small things that makes your breath catch.

A Quiet Knight In [location: public archive]
author: Shonhalok
source: TOS
rating: FRAO
summary: none given
why: OMG, it's Amanda/Sarek MIND SEX!!!!! Sorry, it's a major kink of mine.

Until He Says you're Not [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] tristesses
source: AOS
rating: FRAO
summary: It is less than a romance, more than an arrangement, and something like a courtship, all conducted under the watchful gaze of the Terran Empire.
why: It's twisted and so very not nice as anything in the mirrorverse should be, yet it's still so very lovely.


Chapel/??


Blast from the Past [location: personal archive]
author: Trekki
source: TOS
rating: FRM
summary: A hilarious look at a sassy college-aged Christine Chapel. You'll love her!
why: Drinking, sex, drugs, and an unexpected twist. What's not to love.


Chapel/Kirk


Best Shore Leave Ever! [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] abigail89
source: AOS
rating: FRAO
summary:Every one else is off on shore leave, but getting stuck minding the ship isn't as bad as Christine thought it would be after all...
why: It's hot, and fun, and -did I mention?- hot.

Everything Old is New Again [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic
source: TOS
rating: FRAO
summary: After V'ger, old things seem new
why: It's nice, light, and fun. It had me grinning like an idiot, to be honest.

Hobby: a Word Jim Kirk Should Look Up [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] ethrosdemon
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: none given
why: I like how laid back Chapel is and how easy and comfortable her relationship with Kirk is, while still maintaining those moments filled with tension.

Live Fast, Regret Later [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic
source: TOS
rating: FRM
summary: Sometimes why we do things is not that important--other times it is.
why: Jim is all manipulative and an ass while still being the Kirk I love. It feels natural when Chapel and Kirk are together and it's also hot. It doesn't hurt that this was written for my birthday!

Chapel/Sarek


Only Logical [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic
source: AOS
rating: FRT
summary: She doesn't know why she's with him.
why: This made a pairing I originally couldn't see happening come out making so much sense. Spock Prime comes off a bit manipulative, but that's just Spock Prime, IMO.


Chapel/Spock


Asunder [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic
source: TOS
rating: FRM
summary: How Spock went to Gol stories are out there in mass; I've done some of them myself and thought the muse was done with that them. But I had some insight recently into what might have driven Spock away, and the muse insisted I write it down.
why: It's a really great ensemble piece that doesn't depend on a the pairing, yet doesn't feel like the pairing is shoe-horned in. As usual, I love Djinn's characterization.

Fever Dreams & Fevers Break [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic
source: TOS
rating: FRM
summary: Memory is a tricky thing. So's love.
why: The ANGST!! The manipulative!Spock! This is Chapel/Spock as only Djinn can write them. Thank goodness she occasionally pops out with some stunning TOS fic. Fevers Break is a possible future of Fever Dreams. Nobody's happy, just remember that.

Fragments in a Mirror [location: trektales.com]
author: Cherpring and Jacqueline Bielowicz
source: TOS
rating: FRM
summary: none given
why: I'm a sucker for Chapel/Spock stories, but especially those set in the Mirrorverse.

Frostbite [location: personal archive]
author: [livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic
source: TOS
rating: FRT
summary: none given
why: Not only do I love that Spock and Chapel are able to naturally ease into a relationship, I love that this accurately (IMO) portrays how people react to be stationed in isolated and extremely cold places.

Most Fortunate [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] medie
source: AOS
rating: FRT
summary: He would, he believes, give her the universe if she asked it of him.
why: This is pretty much fluff, through and through. While I don't usually go for nu!Spock with Chapel, it really works for me here.

Nowhere to Go, Nothing to Say [location: personal archive]
author: [livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic
source: TOS
rating: FRT
summary: Because I had an urge to return to banter-heavy Spock/Chapel stuff.
why: It's a fic I read a while ago. However, good Chapel/Spock should always be shared. The banter in this is lovely, and I adore the way Chapel has changed in the story.

Spell [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] izzyfics
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: Nay, hush, my sister:
I ate and ate my fill,
Yet my mouth waters still
[Goblin Market - Christina Rossetti]
why: It's creepy and dark and Spock comes off as very controling and cold, which makes this perfect, IMO.


Chapel/Spock/Uhura

Mint & Antiseptic Kisses [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] andrealyn
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: Ever since Christine kissed Nyota at the end of a mission, Spock & Nyota have been thinking of changing their situation.
why: I adore the way that both Spock and Uhura were into getting Christine to join them.


Chapel/SpockPrime


Love Without Rules [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: Two people looking for second chances, but are they looking in the right place?
why: I simply adore Djinn's strong, slightly cynical, version of reboot!Christine as well as her broken and manipulative Spock Prime. And this story also manages to nicely deliver some angst.

Of All the Gin Joints in All the Towns [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: A Vulcan on the hunt is an impressive thing. Also hopefully funny.
why: It's cracky, and funny, and even a bit sweet. Spock!Prime deserves some lovin!

Only Logical [location: livejournal]
See Chapel/Sarek

Quantum Lust [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: Because sometimes wrong is the ultimate turn on.
why: It's dirtybadwrong on so many levels.

Soup on the Wall [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] saavikam77
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: Being ferried to New Vulcan by the Enterprise, Spock doesn't expect to find Nurse Chapel among the crew. He can't help remembering the Christine Chapel he knew, and things that did and didn't happen.
why: It's well written Spock/Chapel! It's hits of a possible future extreme May/December relationship in the future for Spock!prime and nu!Chapel! It made me squee. Do you need me to keep going?

Transgression [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] snarkypants
source: AOS
rating: FRAO
summary: Spock is making up for lost time in his new time.
why: It's going along as sweet and nice, then it hits you with the pain and angst. Gotta love that!


Chapel/Uhura

Control [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] down_fell_jill
source: AOS
rating: FRAO
summary: Control is never achieved when sought after directly; it is the surprising result of letting go. – James Arthur Ray
why: It's hot and features two of my favorite characters. Did I mention hot?


Enterprise Pairings


Miss Enterprise [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] doctor_caduceus
source: AOS
pairing: Enterprise/Kirk, Enterprise/Scotty
rating: FRT
summary: Star Fleet creates a new feature for all ships in the Fleet. McCoy thinks it's useless, Kirk thinks it's AWESOME.
why: It's so very funny.


Gaila/Kirk


Light That you Shine [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] rubynye
source: AOS
rating: FRAO
summary: Gaila and Jim under the infinite sky. Inspired by the prompt "Gaila/Kirk - unfinished business."
why: I love the way this story portrays both Gaila and Kirk, and their relationship with each other. It's slightly angsty, but a very slow-moving affirmation of life.

A Sexy Think Tank [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] atomicskull
source: AOS
rating: FRAO
summary: In which sex is had, dinosaur band-aids are dispensed, Uhura's bunny slippers are used as projectiles and Bones is plotted against.
why: Because they very much are a sexy think tank, and I would love to read about them going after McCoy.

A Surprising Kind of Guy (or why Gaila shouldn't listen to gossip) [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] anotherdance
source: AOS
rating: FRC
summary: Jim Kirk likes to cuddle. This was news to Gaila.
why: It's a fantastic view on a side of Kirk that doesn't get written very often in a lot of fics I've read.


Gaila/Scotty


Can't Blame Everything on the Pheromones [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] audi_katia
source: AOS
rating: FRT
summary: Scotty was ready to blame his attraction on her pheromones.
why: This is possibly the cutest pairing of all time, and this particular story is written very well, IMO.

Just Another Day at the Office [location: livejournal]
See Chapel/McCoy

She Dances So Graceful [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] thistlerose
source: AOS
rating: FRT
summary: Nowadays, Gaila only dances for two people.
why: This is a beautiful affirmation that Gaila is her own woman and does everything on her own terms and that Scotty adores her.


Gaila/Spock


Surak and Socrates Want You to Masturbate [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] igrockspock
source: AOS
rating: FRAO
summary: Spock needs sex advice. Gaila is happy to provide it, and she doesn't see why Spock shouldn't get himself off while he listens. Good thing logic is on her side.
why: Not only is it fun sexiness with Gaila helping Spock out, it also gives depth and maturity to her character. She's written as very intelligent and willing to compromise how she wants to act to a certain degree in order to live and work around other cultures. That's a lot of characterization to pack into a story about Gaila telling Spock how to please Uhura while he jacks off, but it's done very well.


Khan/McGivers


Not All At Once [location: personal archive]
author: [livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic
source: TOS
rating: FRT
summary: This is a companion piece to "Weeds," Rabble Rouser's award-winning Marla McGivers story and you should really read that first. This is from Khan's perspective.
why: I just adore Khan's perspective on this. It's dark and lovely!

Weeds [location: ff.net]
author: [livejournal.com profile] harmony_bites
source: TOS
rating: FRT
summary: Marla McGivers reflects on her place in history.
why: Because it's dark and disturbing. I have a thing for that.


Kirk/Rand

Daddy's Little Girl [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] trek_bdsm
source: AOS
rating: FRAO
summary: Naughty Janice should have known that her Daddy would have been angry when he found out about her shameful lack of panties.
why: Good lord, but it's kinky! And well written as well. Add in the fact that it's for a pairing I don't see often, and I'm sold!

Just Another Day at the Office [location: livejournal]
See Chapel/McCoy


Kirk/Spock


Slow Motion [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] irisbleufic
source: TOS
rating: FRT
summary: none provided
why: This is usually not my pairing of choice, but I'm so glad I read it. It's a kiss. It's a kiss drawn out in such aching detail that you can feel it. This was better than Westley and Buttercup's kiss.

While Singing [location: dreamwidth]
author: [dreamwidth.org profile] cjs_own
source: AOS
rating: FRAO
summary: She still wonders if she could make him blush hard, make him blush so much his entire body is flushed green.
why: While I'm not sure on the characterization of always a girl!Kirk, if it was off, it wasn't enough to drive me away. The reason I had to read this, even though it's not my pairing of choice, is because it's sex in a bathtub. It's a kink of mine.


Kirk/Spock/Uhura


I Bring the Fire [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] vaingirlfic
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: Pon Farr, the original fuck or die alien biology scenario. Good times!
why: The best way to solve a love triangle? Threesome! Besides that, I love how the Pon Farr influences and effects Kirk and Uhura.


Kirk/Uhura


Logic Will Break Your Heart [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] 1297
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: It's a predictable response, she knows. But there probably isn't a right way of responding to this. Not with any dignity anyway.
why: It's messy and painful, but the ending with Kirk and Uhura makes it all so very much worth it.

Matched Set [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] jain
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: All of the members of Starfleet were issued five tunics, three pairs of trousers, and five dresses.
why: Kirk in a skirt and having hot as fuck sex with Uhura. Do you need any other reasons?

Our Veins Run Parallel [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] ineffort
source: AOS
rating: FRC
summary: this is the kicker - space doesn't mean what you think it means.
why: I ship these two in TOS and AOS, that's why I read this at first. Then I realized that this cuts to the core of what I think they can be. Her Uhura is strong and fierce, yet vulnerable. Her Kirk is deeper than those around him expect, and I love that.

Second Impressions [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] jain
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: Four perspectives on three relationships.
why: It's a break-up fic where everyone manages to stay mature and there's is absolutely not character bashing. All the characters are well written and IC, IMO. That, and it's mainly Spock/McCoy!



Number One/Pike


Apocrypha [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] theoreticalpixy
source: TOS
rating: FRC
summary: She does not have a name and that is fine with her.
why: It's a perfect telling on how Number One got her name, and how much meaning it ends up having.

Cognitive Dissonance [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] taraljc
source: AOS
rating: FRAO
summary: Mirror Universe. What mattered to Number One was that she was strong enough to keep her position as first officer, and thus far she'd done exactly that without having to warm Captain Pike's bed. That grace period was over.
why: Part of me loves so much that, even in the Mirroverse, these two aren't dysfunctional with each other. It's all concenting and hot as can be.

Filifera [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] boosette
source: AOS
rating: FRT
summary: The away team is confined to quarters until the aphrodisiac effects of the pollen wear off specifically to prevent this from happening.
why: Sex pollen!!

That's What Big Girls Are Made Of [location: personal archive]
author: [livejournal.com profile] watergal
source: TOS
rating: FRT
summary: Backstory.
why: It's an extremely interesting take on the reason that Chapel and Number One are identical... you know, besides the fact that they were played by the same actress.

Tough Love [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] djinn_fic
source: AOS
rating: FRT
summary: After the events of the movie, trauma takes its toll.
why: I could talk about how stoked I am that Number One gets into the reboot fic action, or how I love how strong, loving, and understanding she's shown, but I won't. I'll simply say, Djinn wrote it. Then, you'll know that you should go read it.

Untitled [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] igrockspock
source: TOS
rating: FRAO
summary: shameless oral sex porn
why: Read the summary.

Planetary Pairings


A Distraction of Planetary Proportions [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] tristesses
source: AOS
pairing: Earth/Vulcan
rating: FRAO
summary: Terra does not comport herself as a planet should. She smiles, she laughs, she is overly involved with her humans, and she won't stop touching him. Vulcan should disregard her presence entirely and concentrate on his diplomatic affairs, but she is very....distracting. He does not realize that this is merely the beginning.
why: It's well written, fantastically characterized, and extremely hot. Vulcan is just so very... Vulcan, and Terra is so very new and eager and emotional.


Rand/Uhura

Swallowed by a Wave (Promises, Promises) [location: AO3]
author: [livejournal.com profile] izzyfics
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: In which they're at a beach resort and the waves are large, the sun is warm, and Janice is impulsive.
why: It's a nice, slow angst and it's all for me!!


Scotty/Uhura


Joyful Sign [location: livejournal]
author: [dreamwidth.org profile] slash4femme
source: AOS
rating: FRT
summary: Uhura thinks she is too old to have a crush.
why: OMG! It's cute, they're cute, and it's just too cute!

Laid Back [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] jouissant
source: AOS
rating: FRAO
summary: PWP, rimming, anal sex. For Porn Battle X, prompt: engine, metaphor, laughter.
why: A hot story about two very hot people. Also, besides the sex, you get a feeling that they're very comfortable and happy together. Have i mentioned that I love this pairing?

The Planets Bend Between Us [location: dreamwidth]
author: [dreamwidth.org profile] slash4femme
source: AOS
rating: FRM
summary: Uhura's life beaks down by moments.
why: It's a beautiful look at moments in a relationship. That, and this is becoming one of my favorite pairings.

Precious Fall [location: livejournal]
author: [dreamwidth.org profile] slash4femme
source: AOS
rating: FRAO
summary: :"Tomorrow will be better.” His voice is soft and rough and she almost doesn’t hear him
why: There's a very nice depth to the story, along with the idea of Scotty and Uhura together being hot, of course.

Splendor and Jeopardy [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] omg_wtf_yeah
source: AOS
rating: FRC
summary: Uhura and Scotty meet after a near miss with an enemy vessel.
why: Again, it's the pairing that drew me in, and I like that someone was worried about Scotty during an attack.

Spock/T'Pring

If By Chance [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] medie
source: AOS
rating: FRC
summary: She has known logic, known truth, and she has always been mystified to observe outworlders and their lust for the vagaries of fate.
why: Because I love this T'Pring. She's a strong woman. Also, I love the bits her of her relationship with Amanda that we're shown. Also, the scene between Spock and T'Pring is hot.

Kal'i'farr [location: livejournal]
author: [livejournal.com profile] medie
source: AOS
rating: FRT
summary: looking at her in the faint light of Earth's moon, he believes that she is unparalleled and he has done her a great disservice.
why: This one could make me ship this couple so hard. It's written so beautifully, and it just seems natural and right.

Making a Loud Noise Until Rescued

"I thought," said Piglet earnestly, "that if Eeyore stood at the bottom of the tree, and if Pooh stood on Eeyore's back, and if I stood on Pooh's shoulders----"

"And if Eeyore's back snapped suddenly, then we could all laugh. Ha ha! Amusing in a quiet way," said Eeyore, "but not really helpful."

"Well," said Piglet meekly, "I thought----"

"Would it break your back, Eeyore?" asked Pooh, very much surprised.

"That's what would be so interesting, Pooh. Not being quite sure till afterwards."
