    Summary

    Anything you write on your arm your soulmates can see, the legends say. These days, it's common knowledge that around puberty, anyone can start talking to their soulmate this way, if they have one.

    ---

    It's the wrong time for JT. It's not easy to ignore the words from both his soulmates appearing on his arms. He has more important things to think about, like feeding his kids and keeping them all safe. Besides, he's probably going to die here anyway. It's best if they didn't know he even existed.

    That doesn't make anything easier.

    Summary

    The Enterprise's final confrontation with Nero leaves them limping back to Earth without a warp core. Jim is much worse off than he's been letting on both physically and mentally. A well-timed call from an old friend may yield the advice he needs and the thought of seeing his kids again may just be the push he needs to get help. Thank god he has the two best families a man could ask for.

    Summary

    He's grown used to donning and shedding names as often as personas, but when he thinks of the years ahead, he finds he’s reluctant to let go of this one.

    OR

    A look at Kirk's life through the lens of which name he chooses to go by at any given time.

    (“I’m not my name. My name is something I wear, like a shirt. It gets worn. I outgrow it, I change it.”)

    Summary

    “Kid, comm me when you get this,” says Old Jim, oddly serious, holographic eyes dark, crow’s feet deep and shadowed. “It’s, uh, life and death, I suppose.”

    Jim’s PADD battery dies a few hours before alpha shift commences; he doesn’t get the message.

    Summary

    The guards started firing into the crowd.

    People were screaming—children were screaming—and flesh was burning and the building was burning and smoke was filling the air and it smelled like cooked meat. Jim’s stomach growled, and the only thing that kept him from stopping to throw up was the knowledge that it would get him shot.

    Summary

    “Jim, where are you?” he asked quietly, and Jim shook his head. “I can’t help you or Kevin if you don’t tell me where you are.”

    Jim seemed to consider this and murmured, “We’re hiding.”

    “Where, Jim?”

    “In a tree. We have to be quiet and still. If they see us they’ll kill us,” Jim said, tightening his grip on Kevin who leaned against him harder, trying to keep him alert. Having someone to take care of kept him from drifting any further away. His kids were too important to him for him to let that happen.

    “Who’s chasing you Jim?” Bones prompted, knowing that Jim needed to work through his memories in order to escape his flashback.

    “The guards. He sent the guards after us, he wants to kill my kids, I can’t let him hurt my kids.”

    Summary

    “Cadet Kirk.” He looked up at the instructor as she continued. “I expect you to have enough human decency to respect those who were on Tarsus IV, and your lack of paying attention is most definitely not respectful!”

    Summary

    Neither Leonard McCoy nor James Kirk knew what they were doing when they signed up for Starfleet Academy, which makes these two overqualified but underprepared plebes perfect (or maybe not) roommates. Aside from the stress of their classes, Jim and Leonard will have to face pranks, drama, computer malfunctions, relationship issues, and--perhaps worst of all--living with each other.
    But hey, if they wanna be able to survive five year missions in deep, unknown space, first they've gotta figure out how to survive freshman year at Starfleet Academy (and also maybe each other's company).

    (not actually a list fic, lol, but i like the title XD)

    Summary

    A twenty-one-year-old Spock and a twenty-one-year-old Leonard McCoy are a young newly Bonded couple living in their home in the middle of a Vulcan Desert (to be fair almost all homes on Vulcan are in the middle of the desert), when nine surprises come (literally) crashing into their lives.

    Summary

    Frank wasn’t quite sure what made him pause on the channel that he did. Maybe it was the grim looks on the reporters’ faces. Maybe it was the headline below them full of words like ‘genocide’ and ‘massacre’. Or maybe it was the dim recollection ringing in the back of his brain at the word Tarsus.

    Summary

    Tarsus IV, a simple farming colony of 60 years with a mostly human population of nearly 10000 people. It's a place for relaxation, escape, and the people living there were attracted to a tech-minimal life. Then the blight came and nearly 2000 people - those already elderly or ill - starved to death despite rationing. Supplies were limited, the government was toppled, and a new power rose from the chaos. Governor Kodos, he called himself, and when he was done, there were barely 4000 people left alive.

    Summary

    Khan called himself brutal, called himself savage, but Khan was merely a warmonger, a solider. Kirk was a survivor. And he wasn’t going to die today.

    Kodos put the Tarsus eleven on the kill list because they were poor, disposable, sickly, and nonhuman kids.
