Why You Should Read This:
Museaway is one of my favorite star Trek authors. I love the way she writes these characters. In this AU Spock decides to attend the Vulcan Science Academy instead of Star Fleet. This one decision changes the course of not only Spock’s life but Jim’s as well.
This is a captivating read. Once I started reading I found it almost impossible to stop. The plot is well written and the characterization is excellent. Spock and Jim a very different people in this story but they are still the characters we know and love. Their journey toward one another is difficult but poignant. I found myself wanting to hug Spock more than once. I highly recommend this story.

Why You Should Read This: This fic is epic. One year after Vulcan is destroyed, Spock is a member of the Emegency Personnel Ambulance Service. These people are badass; they’re the ones who who risk their lives to bring Starfleet personnel home, heading into extremely dangerous situations. It’s not a job for the faint of heart. After being absolutely done with the Command track, Jim is transferred to the EPAS. This fic is incredibly well-written and amazingly plotted. This is the type of fic a reader can disappear into. The characters seem like themselves, and the relationship that forms between Jim and Spock is believable and wonderful. If you’re going to read a Kirk/Spock fic, it should be this one.

Why You Should Read This: Awarrington is always a fantastic read but there is something especially enchanting about Jim’s journey in this story. I clicked on it out of curiosity, got what expected right up until the very last minute wherein I suffered a bit of a surprise which doesn’t normally happen to me. But it was a sweet suffering. It’s a great, charming read with a little bit of angst and an absolutely lovely ending.
