Author: jaylee_g
Pairing: Kirk/Spock
Rating: Pg-13
Status: Complete
Word Count: 7,067
Universe: AU - modern day setting
Summary: Did the Nazca build the Nazca lines on their own, or did they, perhaps, have help?
Excerpt: “Do you think there is life out there?” he’d asked back then, on the cusp of thirteen, his voice breaking as the onset of puberty reared its ugly head, and his eyes looking through the lens of his gift to land on her for the first time. 40 Eridani A.
  “I’m sure of it,” his grandfather had answered, looking up towards the sky. “The universe is a big place, what we see with our eyes only but an insignificant, tiny portion of it.”
  “Not so insignificant, Grandfather,” Jim muttered to his memories, leaning back in his chair, while his eyes remained trained on the one star. "We were apparently significant enough to be left a map."
Notes: Written for, and originally published in, T'hy'la #32
Notes 2: It's been so long since I've posted a story on livejournal I think I may have forgotten how. Please forgive any formatting faux pas.
Notes 3: I know I've been largely AWOL the past year or so. It's been such a wretched year, not going to sugarcoat it. However, one thing that has remained consistent is my love of Star Trek, my love of K/S and my love of the K/S shippers. These three things will never change. I've missed you guys!

Not too ashamed to beg...

... so I see that the nine minute Star Trek preview was posted everywhere and then already taken down by Paramount (honestly, Paramount, I don't know who's in charge of your marketing department but let me explain some basic economics from someone who majored in a science field and is no where near even close to being an expert on such matters, but knows at least this much... youtube = free publicity. You put the nine minutes in front of the Hobbit anyway, its not like any of the content is still a BIG SECRET. I just can't go and see that version because 3-D gives me motion sickness, although I fully intend to see "The Hobbit" because it's one of my favorite books ever. So I reiterate, youtube = free publicity. Just saying.) Does anyone know where there's a link still active or have it saved to your computer and can send it to me? My five-year-old was sick all night Thursday and into Friday morning (poor thing, she's feeling better now) and I was up with her. As a result I, inevitably, because this happens whenever I go too long without sleep, got a migraine yesterday and ended up going to bed at 6 pm. I totally missed all of the viewing/posting! I will be so in your debt and filled with gratitude it wouldn't even be funny. Help a Trek deprived lady out? Please? I've set this post up to screen all comments. Thank you!!!!!

FIC: Perhaps It Means Something (A Little Bit More)

Title: Perhaps It Means Something (A Little Bit More)
Arthor: jaylee_g
Fandom: Reboot
Rating: PG-13
Status: Complete
Word Count: 4187
Summary: Written for ksadvent 2012. "... It wasn’t like facing death, it was just chess with Spock. That didn’t, as a general rule, usually end in fatalities."
Notes: The title was taken from "How the Grinch Stole Christmas", by Dr. Seuss.
Notes 2: Been hugely busy the last couple of months (we moved, not far, but moved nonetheless) and livejournal has changed things around again I see. This will definitely take some getting used to. Though, in the very least, it does provide me with a good scapegoat, if you guys find any formatting hijinks... livejournal did it! O:-)
Disclaimer: Characters are not mine, no profit here.
Special Thanks: to dragons_syn for going above and beyond and for beta'ing this thing like a ninja (of grammar). Adore you to pieces!

Huge Favor?

Is there anyone who would be willing to beta a 6k TOS K/S fic for me by Saturday (the anniversary of when "Amok Time" first aired)? I would owe you BIG and love you forever and ever and ever!!!

Oh google, how I love thee...

Posting from work and will probably get a stern talking to for this (or maybe not, my boss is also a Trekkie) but those who haven't checked out the Google main page, you gotta do so. It's AWESOME (psssst... click on the doors to the bridge, then click on the transporter, then you can fight the Gorn with either the stick or the pile of stuff on top of the hill ;)).


Happy Birthday, Star Trek!!!

Forty-six years and still as awesome as ever!!!

Shatner as Kirk

And the Darwin Award goes to the guy in the orange jumpsuit...

So I'm currently rewatching ST:TOS's "A Devil in the Dark" (it's been years since I saw it last) because I made a reference to the Horta in my last fic and a response to it (blows kisses to spomarani) got me thinking "You know, that episode needs a coda SO HARD (spoiler alert... a smutty one ;)). I mean, the slash practically speaks for itself. You don't even need goggles. Or eyesight, really. Anyhoo, so I'm about ten minutes in and the guy in the orange jumpsuit goes towards the strange noises emanating from the tunnels, after its already been reported that 50 people have died due to globby monster (who happens to be entirely immune to laser blasts).

So. That's smart.

Pardon me for a second, I just need to get this off my chest... NO JOB IS WORTH DYING FOR BY SILICON GLOBBY MONSTER!

Kay, back to watching now...

Edit: Awwww...

What Kirk said: "Mr. Spock, I want you to assist Scotty with the pump thing-a-ma-bob."

What he meant: "Lover, I don't want you anywhere near Glopus Killacus."

Or, rather...

"I'm expendable, you're not"

(I swear Kirk looks like he's getting turned on when Spock starts quoting the odds of them both getting killed by Glopus Killacus).

Edit 2: "Jim! Jim!" *utterly panicked expression*

Well, someone, not mentioning any names, but his name starts with "S" and ends with "pock", is emotionally compromised at the thought of the Captain being in danger. Just saying...

Edit 3: "Kill it, Captain! Quickly!"


Okay, okay, I'll stop with the running commentary now.

BTW: There may or may not have been some wine involved with the making of this post.
