number one: fights like a girl

Five stories I want to read...

...but don't think I can write myself. Stolen from taraljc

1. Pike never regains the ability to walk, but he does regain command of a starship.
2. A story in which Pike gets to use the line, "it's not the years, baby, it's the mileage."
3. A story in which Number One is a bad ass with a shotgun, sort of like Zoe in Firefly. Maybe it should be a crossover.
4. Speaking of crossovers, I'd really like to read one where Mal and Kirk form a friendship, and Kirk kind of wants to stay in the Firefly universe to blow up the Alliance, but he has to accept that he should let Mal fight his own battles.
5. A story, not an AU, in which McCoy is sexy by being very good at pool.

And also, I kind of want to read a Top Chef AU. There is a really brief one with Spock, but I want longer. Like maybe a series. Or maybe just the crew getting together to watch Top Chef masters and fanboying/fangirling all the famous chefs.

Five characters who would have a good time hanging out with me and my friends - from today's fannish5

1. Gaila could come to the wine bar and talk about sex.
2. Spock could come to a debate tournament and talk about logic with my fellow coaches.
3. Amanda and I could cook and eat things.
4. I think Sulu would enjoy the sort of weird and adventurous trip I am prone to taking.
5. Hm. I am drawing a blank here.

Also, I am not doing that 5 Acts thing because I feel guilty about posting a list when I know I don't have the time or inspiration to answer anyone's prompts, but here is a mix of five sexual and literary kinks.

1. Characters cooking for each other or being foodies.
2. Women rescuing or physically protecting men, preferably boyfriends.
3. Strong women who enjoy giving up control in bed.
4. Starfleet depicted as an actual military organization.
5. Doggie style sex, especially if spanking is involved.

Bonus #6: Close male friendship that is not sexual.

Well, nobody really knows more about her than what was in the Cage since that's her only episode. I think I got to know her through taraljc's fic. Writing her for the first time scared me too, but I think she is much less intimidating once you get to know her. I say go for it!
Oh dear. I am a bit embarrassed of that story. I'm glad you like it though!

I think she does appear in a couple Trek books because taraljc mentioned them once or twice, but I feel like most of us -- especially those of us who joined fandom after Reboot -- haven't read them. I think fanfic is an excellent way to get to know her!
I would love to read story#1 although I have a really hard time with Pike being eternally in the chair. I just don't want that /fangirlblather

P.S. Good idea with your 5 acts reply, as I don't manage the time to comment fic either!

Be still my heart, THIS.
Ooh, I'd love to read the one about Pike captaining from a chair too. *nod nod*

A story, not an AU, in which McCoy is sexy by being very good at pool.

There's a Kirk/McCoy PWP where Bones beats Jim at pool and then shags him over the pool table, but somehow I don't think that's quite what you're looking for. ;-)

Doggie style sex, especially if spanking is involved.

+1!!!

Close male friendship that is not sexual.

You'd never know from the amount of slash I read, but I do enjoy this as well. My favorite is, surprise surprise, Kirk and Bones friendship. :-)
3. A story in which Number One is a bad ass with a shotgun, sort of like Zoe in Firefly. Maybe it should be a crossover.
4. Speaking of crossovers, I'd really like to read one where Mal and Kirk form a friendship, and Kirk kind of wants to stay in the Firefly universe to blow up the Alliance, but he has to accept that he should let Mal fight his own battles.


As a very recent Firefly convert (why did I not find it sooner?) I would fan these crossovers So Much.
I could probably write the one about Starfleet. Since I am, you know- an actual veteran.
