Easier
I just finished reading the Big Bang fic Adaptation by [livejournal.com profile] ghiri_mai (gen, 44,451 words), and I enjoyed it a lot. It had good worldbuilding and imagined the impact of Vulcan's destruction and Nero on the Romulans and Vulcan rebuilding, and I was hooked even though it was mostly about original characters. (There were some typos still in the text that I noticed, and though it didn't have much of an impact on my enjoyment, as it wasn't a persistent homonym or apostrophe confusion, nitpicky readers might be bothered.)
Title: The Light of Distant Skies
Authors: [personal profile] merisunshine36 and [livejournal.com profile] lindmere
Characters: Enterprise crew, Sarek, Winona, background Spock/Uhura/OFC
Rating/Wordcount: PG-13, ~13K
Warnings: scientific discussion related to conception/reproduction
Notes: A million thanks to my cowriter, the lovely [livejournal.com profile] lindmere! We never would have finished this without being there to prop each other up. Much gratitude is also owed to our betas, the awesome[livejournal.com profile] sail_aweigh and [livejournal.com profile] shuuki_chan <3. This is the first in a series, so stay tuned for the next installment!

Summary/link: 16.45 years after Vulcan's destruction, the last light from Vulcan shines on an Earth on the verge of war, and on Starfleet officers facing decisions on whether to confront the enemy or seek out new life.

Title: The Desert Between
Author: [personal profile] beatrice_otter 
Fandom: Star Trek
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Nyota Uhura, Spock
Word Count: 14,224
Betaed by: [personal profile] laurajv 
Summary: “All Vulcans are constrained. By our biology, by our clans, by our whole society. But women more so than men, and offworlder women married to Vulcan men most of all.” Nyota loves Spock. But she can’t have him without taking Vulcan culture, too.
Note: the title is an adaption of The River Between by Ngugi Wa Thiong’o. [personal profile] laurajv wants me to write a sequel; I may, but it probably won’t be any time soon.

The most important thing for the Vulcans right now is the rebuilding of their culture and society, not the building of the new colony’s buildings. They named their new homeworld ‘rebirth,’ and that’s exactly what they want to happen. )
We have some terrific, thoughtful fills so far! I'm really pleased with the results.

1) Reach for Rejection, The Romulans offer the Vulcans aid.

2) Vulcan treasures from off-world get sent to the New Colony

3) Those Left Behind Sarek and Pike offer comfort to one another in the aftermath

And, not precisely what I was expecting to see as a fill, but have a recipe for plomeek soup!

This enterprise has so far proven most productive. Let us continue in our endeavor.
As a part of [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw, welcome to the first ever Vulcan Reforged kinkmeme.

How This Works

1) Comment anonymously with a prompt featuring either Vulcans or consequences from the destruction of Vulcan in the Star Trek: Reboot Universe. This can be gen or shippy, serious or funny. (Examples: A day in the life on the new Vulcan colony, the Vulcan people become space pirates, lots of Vulcans go into pon farr early since there's a population crisis, an Andorian cook stumbles on something that tastes almost exactly like plomeek soup and makes a fortune!)

2) Read other people's requests, and make them something to fulfill it: icons, fic, vids, art, filk, anonymous post card, whatever you got. Post it as a reply to the prompt which inspired you, anonymously or as yourself, your choice.

3) Wait three weeks from the time you fulfilled the prompt before you post it outside of Dreamwidth, but if you want to post it on your Dreamwidth journal sooner, that's fine.

4) Repeat until satisfied.
On Monday, we're going to host a kinkmeme to help celebrate Three Weeks for Dreamwidth.

Get your prompts ready, and think about what sort of fills you might be up for.

May our kinkmeme Live long and prosper!
We all know Vulcans have elaborate family clan structures, right?  And a lot of the survivors won't have any family left.  I've been thinking about that, how they'll probably band together to form clans/families from whatever fragments are left, so a lot of clans won't survive even if there are survivors from the clan, because they'll just get absorbed.

I realized I'm thinking about this too much like a human.  Vulcans live twice as long as we do; they probably have a fertile period twice as long, as well.  Raise one batch of kids as children of one clan, and once they're out of the house, raise another batch of kids as children of the other.  Bingo, both clans preserved, and you have a population explosion as well, which they need.
This community has been in a, um, healing trance for quite some time now. I thought that, for [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw, we might want to launch a "kink meme. Rather than sexual or even narrative kinks, the prompts would be various theories about what happened in the Reboot universe as a result of the destruction of Vulcan.

Shall we proceed with a Vulcan Reforged Kink Meme?

Have you read From The Terran Coyote to The Klingon K'Ortar: Tricksters of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants?  If not, why not?  One of the best stories in [community profile] treknovelfest, this story by [personal profile] ljc is an "excerpt" from a scholarly manuscript that retells and explores Vulcan folk tales.  It's a fascinating look, and it's wonderful.  And now, [personal profile] melannen has illustrated it!  It's really cool!
War Games by Seperis

This immense (100k+ words) novel is a sequel to a Kirk/Spock Pon Farr story which is very good, but which I never rec'd here because, unusually, it doesn't have much to do with Vulcans.

This novel is great because it addresses the reconstruction of Vulcan, Vulcan xenophobia, Federation politics, it makes the Orions into real and interesting players on the Galactic stage, and considers how the Nerada incident has impacted relations with the Romulans. Highly recommended.
I'm participating in the [community profile] help_haiti auction, where the money raised goes towards the Haiti relief efforts.  I'm donating a fic to the auction, and among the fandoms offered is Star Trek--AOS, TOS, TNG, and DS9, and I love Vulcans (if you want something related to Spock's World, my Enemy, My Ally, the Romulan Way, or the Vulcan Academy Murders, I'd think that was cool).  (Gen or het, no slash, no explicit sex).  Bidding is at ten dollars.

The Old Ways
Title: Out of the Depths
Author: [personal profile] beatrice_otter 
Fandom: Star Trek
Rating: PG
Characters: Spock!Prime
Word Count: 2,417
Betaed by: [personal profile] ljc 
Summary: Though much is taken, some things remain.
Prompt: [community profile] treknovelfest 57--The Pandora Principle, Spock Prime & Saavik. Spock!Prime goes to rescue everyone a decade or so early.
Note: Pthak’sahaisau means “cast out fear” (thank you, Vulcan Language Dictionary) and refers to Surak’s writings: “Here is the first part of the secret: Cast out fear. There is no room for anything else until you cast out fear.” (Spock’s World, p. 312)

( Spock surveyed the cavern, the largest chamber on Thieurrull, which in Standard was Hellguard. )

Additionally, I have a question. Do Vulcans get drunk off alcohol? Do they have a hugely high tolerance, but some Romulan ale will crack it? Or does alcohol have no effect at all? Do they get drunk but never never show it because their self control is that good? Enquiring minds want to know!
Tonight I was watching a bunch of classic DS9 episodes, including "Inter Arma Enim Silent Leges". This community will be happy to know that there are lots of sehlats still in the universe, because Bashir's dossier includes the name of one of the Romulan's pet sehlats.

I don't know what I find more touching, the continued existence of sehlats or that the Romulans took their pets with them at the Time of Sundering.
Title: Reunion
Author: Meri
Pairing(s): None
Rating: PG
Length: 2660
Summary: A conversation on New Vulcan between Sarek and Spock Prime.
Disclaimer: Sadly, the characters of Star Trek, specifically Spock Prime and Sarek, do not belong to me. I am learning to accept it. I'm not making any money on them, either.
Note 1: Part of the idea for this story came from a wonderful post [personal profile] beatrice_otter made about her thoughts on what might happen with Vulcan culture. You can read it here.
Note 2: Many thanks to my betas [personal profile] regan_v and especially to [personal profile] lanning for advice that went above and beyond.



Reunion





I posted the below to my journal couple of days ago, and then realized the question was appropriate for this comm:
So, that whole thing where conventional Federation warp drives were tearing apart the fabric of space-time, but, it appears, some solution must have been found for the problem, since someone thought it was a idea to build Voyager, with a cruising speed above Warp 9. (The environmental impact of gasoline distortion of the fabric of space-time by conventional warp technologies was a big part of the plot of the finale of TNG.)

movie spoilers. OMG, people, go bittorrent the movie so I can stop cutting! )

Then today I was reading [personal profile] anne_higgins' No-Win Scenario which is not particularly germane to this comm, but which mentions that the low-level species wide telepathy was putting the Vulcans into a tail-spin, and I wondered if a large number of people from a different telepathic species would be helpful or harmful.

What do y'all think of either or both ponderances?
