Title: In Three Words
Author: [personal profile] evening_bat
Betas: [livejournal.com profile] seryan and [livejournal.com profile] omphaloskepsist
Artists: [livejournal.com profile] unseensorrows and [livejournal.com profile] birddi
Fanmixers: [livejournal.com profile] masterpenguin82 and [livejournal.com profile] birddi
Series: Star Trek XI and Doom
Pairing: Jim Kirk/John Grimm
Rating: R
Word Count: ~ 27,000
Warnings: Reaper doesn’t have a pretty backstory. And serving on Starfleet’s flagship means that they get into some nasty messes. And did I mention Reaper’s backstory? (Blood & violence ahoy!)

Summary: Pike used George Kirk’s legacy to dare his son into Starfleet. It was John Grimm who taught Jim about living outside of his father’s shadow.


Written for the 2012 [livejournal.com profile] startrekbigbang challenge. Loosely inspired by this prompt on the [livejournal.com profile] buckleup_meme, asking for Reaper living out in the open after First Contact. I doubt this is what the prompter had in mind but the bunny grew teeth when I poked at it once too many times.

A few important details... This is a double AU and I've had to fudge things to fuse the canons together. Therefore, the events of the Doom movie/game happen about 45 years earlier than stated and the Eugenics Wars happen about 10 years later than in Trek, both taking place in the early 2000s. This story begins in 2255, as per the movie timeline.

Infinite thanks go out to [livejournal.com profile] seryan and [livejournal.com profile] omphaloskepsist for the beta work and the encouragement to keep writing. This story would never have been finished without their efforts and would certainly be poorer without their input.

Art & Fanmixes

Cover art and the second story graphic were provided by [livejournal.com profile] unseensorrows and you can check out her masterpost here. [livejournal.com profile] birddi created the first and third images in the text.

It was a privilege to work with these amazing collaborators! Their art and musical contributions are fantastic and you should absolutely tell them so.

Signing your life away to Starfleet turned out to be a surprisingly easy process. )

Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope you enjoy the ride!

Title: Positive Reinforcement
Author: [personal profile] evening_bat
Pairing: Kirk/McCoy
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~ 550
Warnings: Uh, Kirk being Kirk?
Summary: Good deeds deserve appropriate rewards.
Notes: This is entirely [livejournal.com profile] omphaloskepsist’s fault. ALL OF IT. She said That Line and Kirk sat right up in my head and announced that it was a great idea! Bones (and I) never had a chance. And thus, this cracky little ficbit.

When the door to McCoy’s office swished open, he wasn’t surprised to see Jim lounging decoratively in his doorway. )

This is also part of a semi-desperate attempt to put down White Collar and Chuck long enough to get some work done on my Star Trek Big Bang attempt. (Rough drafts due in three weeks, OMG. Nowhere near done, OMG. Not even close, OMG.) Matt Bomer characters, why must you be so fascinating??

Title: Divine Right
Author: [personal profile] evening_bat
Pairing: Kirk/McCoy
Word Count: ~ 400
Summary: He's come back to the Queen's court in search of someone.
Notes: Just a snippet of an idea that occurred to me in response to one of [livejournal.com profile] jim_and_bones's daily pic posts. Eventually posted in response to a picspam honouring the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and prompting for royalty-related fanworks.

Pray tell why you present yourself here once more. )

I make no promises about more.

Title: The Wonder That’s Keeping The Stars Apart
Author: [personal profile] evening_bat
Pairing: Kirk/McCoy
Rating: NC-17 (omg what)
Word Count: ~ 7550
Warnings: A bit of sexytime. Some bad language. Crossover wackiness and mangled mythology.
Summary: So it turns out that Bones is way better at keeping secrets than Jim thought.
Notes: Sequel to Carry It In My Heart because I kind of hated to leave things like that. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] seryan for talking me down from an OMG I can't believe I just wrote that! panic attack so that I could get to work on this thing and to [livejournal.com profile] omphaloskepsist for preview-audiencing and general cheeerleading. :)

It took months for Jim to remember. )

I had fun with this one, but man, was it a bitch to write! Hope you enjoy!

Title: Upon A Star
Author: [personal profile] evening_bat
Pairing: Kirk/McCoy
Word Count: ~ 3100
Warnings: Nope!
Summary: Sometimes dreams can blind us to happiness. (AU)
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] writer_klmeri's prompt over on [livejournal.com profile] jim_and_bones's Memorial Day Flash Fic challenge. I, uh, sort of fail at flash fic but I am so happy to have finally gotten a chance to write again that I do not care. :D

Ever since he'd been just a kid, Jim had known what he wanted out of life. He wanted the stars. )

Title: Rainy Day, In the Public Eye & The Fine Art of Negotiation
Author: [personal profile] evening_bat
Pairing: Kirk/McCoy
Warnings: Nope!
Notes: More comment fics written for picture prompts on [livejournal.com profile] jim_and_bones. :D

Rainy Day )

In The Public Eye )

The Fine Art of Negotiation )

Have since moved onto a couple of other Star Trek fic projects & RL is currently demanding that I flail around pretending to be a Responsible Adult for the moment. Hope to get back to comment fics eventually. Great fodder for fic ideas. :D

Title: Carry It In My Heart
Author: [personal profile] evening_bat
Pairing: Kirk/McCoy
Word Count: ~ 1000
Warnings: Nope!
Summary: Jim had always thought he knew all there was to know about Bones but this was new.
Notes: In addition to AUs, I find it hard to resist a good crossover/fusion. :D

Jim had never really gotten into the habit of respecting personal boundaries when it came to Bones. )

So, as this is not related to [livejournal.com profile] jim_and_bones, I can't post it over there. But I did post it over on [livejournal.com profile] kirk_mccoy over here.

Title: Among Us
Author: [personal profile] evening_bat
Pairing: Kirk/McCoy (pre-slash)
Word Count: ~ 3000
Warnings: Uh, some violence?
Summary: Everyone knew there were aliens out there. As it turned out, there were plenty of aliens down here, too.
Notes: So very AU. Morphed into something approaching an MIB / Trek mashup. I don’t even know how that happened. Hopefully better than it sounds? :D

Inspired by these pictures of Chris Pine & Karl Urban (brandishing two guns & besuited and pointing a gun, respectively) on [livejournal.com profile] jim_and_bones because I have this thing for guys with guns, apparently. (Comm is f-locked, join to see the pretty.) I actually did not get to the part with guns because the idea I started with sort of blew up into a massive AU, of which this story would only be the start. If the rest ever got written.

The scream interrupted a promising development in Jim's evening. )

What better way to spend one of my last vacation days than writing like a mad thing, seized with shiny new AU ideas? :D (There may be more visits to this 'verse in the future. There's definitely more story to tell, assuming I can wrangle it into a coherent whole.)

Title: Pretty As A
Author: [personal profile] evening_bat
Pairing: Kirk/McCoy
Word Count: ~ 4000
Warnings: Some medical unpleasantness. Character death of a sort, though offscreen. (Just remember that I like happy endings.)
Summary: Something was Not Right with Jim.
Notes: Written for this picture on [livejournal.com profile] jim_and_bones. (Comm is f-locked. You'll need to join to see the pics.) I used the first picture as, um, a liberal inspiration.

A week after Althesia, McCoy couldn’t keep his concerns to himself anymore. )

Written in a mad fit of inspiration and posted on the fly (before I lost my nerve) after writing for about four hours straight.

Okay, so I resisted for over two years but the Star Trek reboot movie finally got to me. And poking around for fic introduced me to [livejournal.com profile] jim_and_bones, which is a wonderful place dedicated to Kirk/McCoy of all ages, eras and universes. Most of the content is members-locked but if you're a fan of the characters, the actors and pretty pictures, it's worth signing up.

And apparently those pretty pictures prompt me to write! Who knew? :D I'm not sure how long this writing momentum will last but I'm going to enjoy the ride while it does. In the meantime, here's my comment fic responses for this week:

On With The Show )

All The Trails Lead You Home )

Q & A )

Incentive )

One of these days I might get around to longer attempts at writing for these two. In the meantime, I will just sit back and be shocked that I managed this much. :D

From my own questing for fic, I have learned to love masterlists. So if anyone's looking for other things I have written, it's all here:

Organized by fandom under the cut! )
