    Summary

    One novel, six writers. Each writer can only see the last ten pages of the previous writer’s segment. This might be the strangest idea that bestselling author Jim Kirk has ever thought of, but it might just be strange enough to cure Spock Grayson of his writer’s block.

    A really great premise and execution. The pov changes by chapter mirror the writing structure of the in-story book.

    Summary

    A few months after their bonding, Spock requests leave to attend a mid-winter ceremony on Vulcan. Kirk didn’t even know there WAS a mid-winter ceremony on Vulcan, and he finds himself wondering why his bondmate has had a sudden attack of nostalgia. It could be a long vacation…

     

    Written for the KS Advent 2012. Massive thanks to T’Lara for her thorough and incredibly helpful beta-job (given the length of this fic, that goes above and beyond the call of duty) and for all her advice on Vulcan grammar and sentence construction. I’m pretty sure there is nothing that this woman isn’t good at! For those whose browser or device supports it, a translation from Vulcan to English is available by hovering the mouse pointer over the sentence in question, but if not there’s a translation at the end, there's a link to download it in the body of the story itself (because I just don't know how to put a link in this text).

    Oddly relatable.

    Summary

    It’s a question of biology. Vulcan biology.

    The problem with falling in love with a member of an insanely private species is that it just might take you the best part of a five year mission to work out that the feelings are requited. And then you might discover that he’s already decided that the two of you can never be together.

    And what are you supposed to do if he won’t tell you why?

    Summary

    First, suppose that the famous ship sailed by the hero Theseus in a great battle has been kept in a harbour as a museum piece. As the years go by some of the wooden parts begin to rot and are replaced by new ones. After a century or so, all of the parts have been replaced. Is the "restored" ship still the same object as the original?

    Second, suppose that each of the removed pieces were stored in a warehouse, and after the century, technology develops to cure their rotting and enable them to be put back together to make a ship. Is this "re-constructed" ship the original ship? And if so, is the restored ship in the harbour still the original ship too?

    Or...how do transporters really work?
