    Summary

    This story is simple. It happened in four moments. Prologue: a boy drives a car off of a cliff despite the wishes of his stepfather. Prologue: another boy punches someone in the face after an insult about his mother. Prologue: the two boys, now men, meet in a hearing room (Enlighten me again, the cadet says). Prologue: the two men hate each other until the precise moment that they don’t.

    This story is simple. It happened in one moment. Epilogue: perhaps they never hated each other at all.

    But this story, in four moments or in just one, has been told before. Those moments no longer matter. What matters is the fact that the two of them have finally found each other, at least in this universe. What matters is the fact that the Jim Kirk on Delta Vega should never have been surprised- of course, Vulcans feel. What matters is the only thing that’s ever mattered: what happens next.

    Or, the sequel to (Halfway) Human Nature! Please read that one first! Containing friends who go directly to being married, the bridge crew being nosy as hell, general shenanigans, more post-it-notes + text chat names, and TOS-style adventures! Five-year mission, let's boldly go!

    Summary

    After having killed Jonah Magnus and ended the Change, Jon and Martin should finally be able to rest. Rest, however, proves impossible when Jon falls ill. What's more, he begins having vivid dreams of their dead friends - Tim, trapped in the destroyed Archives, and Sasha, trapped outside of them. As Jon's condition quickly worsens and the line between dream and reality begins to blur, love is all he and Martin have to hold on to, because hope is a dangerous thing.

    Summary

    They’re swirling down the drain of reality, the stopper pulled, the fears and Jon and Martin freefalling into the negative space outside existence, and there is everything and nothing at one and Martin’s holding Jon and holding the knife and then he’s holding nothing and then the knife is through him and then Jon’s back in his arms and he tries so hard not to let go, he can’t, not now, and Jon is all bright burning eyes and mummified in cassette tape and gagged with spiderweb and then--

    --and then Martin isn’t falling anymore. He’s dangling. Upside down, leg bound tight, staring down into the massive, unforgiving jaws (chelicerae, says Jon’s flat apocalypse-googling voice, from a memory that feels simultaneously ancient and like it won’t happen for many years, spiders’ jaws are called chelicerae) of what he can only assume is the Mother of Spiders.

    (Jon and Martin get separated. Neither of them is going to let that be the end of the story.)

    Summary

    As far as universal constants went, Kirk thought he was batting a pretty respectable average.

    Constant one: Captain of the shiniest, most kickass starship in the entire fleet, with a crew of formidable badasses by his side, exploring where no one’s explored before.

    Check.

    Constant two: Epic, death-defying, soul entwining friendship that would help define him.

    Not so check.
