Required Reading: Star Trek
So I pretty much only read ST:AOS fic because I haven’t gotten around to watching the original series yet, but whatever. These are basically my favorite fics that you absolutely need to read, hence required reading, lol. And, of course, there’s always the Star Trek section if you need more. =)
