warning: awesome star trek fanfic is not good before bedtime reading [Feb. 19th, 2010|06:49 pm]

Switch by ceres_libera is pure awesome reboot McCoy/Kirk goodness. Very long (50 meaty chapters + epilogue!), very involved and detailed, reimagines the entire movie (and so much more!), and creates a pretty detailed backstory on reboot McCoy. The other important characters get to shine (I ended up liking Spock/Uhura more thanks to this fic) and great OCs to boot (McCoy's grandmother is A+++. I love awesome grandparents, like Sulu's in the novel The Kobayashi Maru). Also has lots of het involving Kirk and McCoy (nothing graphic but mostly well done and meaningful), which I appreciate since they don't hook up immediately and in canon they are not gay. This fic sucked up my last night and spit me out feeling wired and tired and totally elated. XD

I hate you. Do you know how many hours I just spent reading this thing? I don't even DO Star Trek fandom, of any era. :-P

Seriously, thanks for the rec, I really need a strong rec before I can commit to a looonnnnng fanfic like that.

You're welcome! I totally know what you mean about the hours sucked up by long fics like this...I had the same problem, on a work night! I hope she writes more fics in that universe soon. XD;
