Fic: The Desert Between

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. )

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!

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!

Rating: PG

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.

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!

Fic: Precious Things: Ripples

Title: Precious Things: Ripples
Author's Name: [personal profile] meallanmouse
Setting: Star Trek 2009
Pairing: N/A
Rating: PG
Note: Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] elanya for the beta-ing and [livejournal.com profile] aliciam & [livejournal.com profile] rexlapinii for proofing the concept. The link will take you to my writing journal. Note that this is the 4th story in the Precious Thing series. However, it can be read as a standalone.
Summary: Through a single event, countless lives have been lost. But some, also, have been saved.

[ If we put in double shifts, we can reach a production level that should meet every essential requirement they have, sir. ]

FIC: Parted From Me 1/1

Posting at [personal profile] zvi's request: thanks for pointing me towards this comm! :-)

Title: Parted From Me
Author: Azar
E-mail: azarsuerte@hotmail.com
Rating: PG at worst
Spoilers: set after the new movie but with references to TOS, The Search for Spock, The Voyage Home, as well as the tie-in novels, The Pandora Principle and Vulcan's Heart
Pairing: Spock Prime/Saavik, implied Spock/Uhura
Acknowledgments: My betas--[personal profile] medie, who is the canon/nitpick goddess of all things Trek, and [profile] marag who is also fabulous at things Trek, but even better at grammar (and she wouldn't want to be deified anyway). ;-)
Note: This story was written as catharsis upon realizing that in the new universe established by this movie, one of my favorite characters from the original movie series will now likely never exist. Because said character got the bulk of her characterization off-screen, though, it draws heavily on quasi-canon established in the novels and in one deleted scene from Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. It should hopefully be understandable to anyone who hasn't read those novels or descriptions of that scene, but I thought I ought to say something just in case.
Summary: It is left to him to mourn what would have been.
