[Star Trek – Spock/Kirk] jouissant – Something Rich and Strange
Title: Something Rich and Strange
Rating: NC-17 || Status: Complete
Summary: In another universe, captaining a starship is Jim Kirk’s first, best destiny. In this one, he’s just been laid off from a soulless office job, he’s struggling to make ends meet in New York City, and the closest thing he has to a love life is a strange fixation on a Shirley Temple-drinking regular at his new bartending gig. But when he forges a connection with this compelling stranger and begins unraveling the mystery of his father’s death, Jim stumbles onto a secret that will change his life forever.
I love AUs like whoa and the summary totally got me. I like the development of the relationship between Spock and Jim in this and how, even though it’s set in the present, it still keeps the basic elements of the Trek universe. I’m so curious as to what happens next in this ‘verse too!
