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!

Recommendation: War Games

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.

Vulcans and intoxication

[Edited to remove link to flocked fic.]

________

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!

The "Clementine" tapestry

Hello. My name is Sunfell, and there is a Vulcan Elder whispering in my ear.

Since I saw that movie, I've had a gaggle of AU (alternate universe) Vulcans move into my head, all wanting to tell me their stories.

It is very difficult to resist persistent Vulcans- especially when they want to tell you all about something right now. They're so damn... persuasive. So, not knowing about this comm until a friend on LJ pointed it out, I wrote a short prologue to a larger tapestry that these people are narrating to me. It's called "Clementine"- which, apparently is very close to a Vulcan word meaning 'ended | lost | gone forever'.

You can read it here. If you like it, I can crosspost here, as new chapters arrive.

I haven't written fanfic in nearly 20 years. Doggone Vulcans did it to me again!
