Jim was only reviewing his latest paper on tactical advantages and the benefits of good engineers in combat situations when the assignment had popped up on his PADD. He’d groaned in response, of course – he’d really hoped to get five minutes this weekend with Gaila – and then he’d seen the title.

I want to see Jim forced to relive Tarsus IV—but not just because some aliens were sadistic or whatever, but as a test—and I would love the reward to be one of two things 1) either Vulcan is restored or 2) Amanda is alive again.

For the prompt “Spock gives Kirk a meld for Christmas; Spock sees more than Kirk intends him to.” Except it kind of turned into a mini-big bang, and the meld precedes Christmas by just a bit. It’s your classic h/c with the “can they get it together before it’s too late” thrown in for good measure. 16k
