These are a few of my favorite fics...  
Shamelessly stolen from linelenagain, the Kirk/McCoy fic contest meme!

Below are some lines from fifteen of my fave K/M fics. Name the fic and author! Rather than having a contest with a deadline to submit entries, because I'm so much lazier than that, I'm making it more like a race, or one of those song quote memes. If you know one, just leave a comment, and I'll credit and strike-thru the entries as they get named!

I'm not promising fic as a prize, but if I feel motivated, I may decide to write a little something for winner/participants. We'll see. :P

Most of all, though, I hope you have fun! And if you haven't read these fics, then you're in for a treat. If people enjoy, I may do this again because omg I have SO many awesome fics bookmarked. So if yours isn't on this list, I apologize, and it doesn't mean I didn't love it!

ETA: So, some of these I apparently made too tough! I'm adding a bit extra to the ones that haven't been guessed yet, to help nudge your memories. The two lines are not necessarily consecutive. Good luck, bbs, hope this helps!

1. "A jack-off contest? Dammit, Jim, you're drunker than I thought. What kind of two-bit teenage nonsense is that?" Hand to Hand Combat by cymbalism219

2. "I need to hear you say you're done with me in clear Standard, because I don't speak Uncommunicative Asshole as well as Uhura." Scars Are Souvenirs You Never Lose by the_dala

3. It is the same image, except in THIS one that beautiful mouth is open and doing something delicately, precisely obscene to that sensor with teeth and tongue, the eyes no longer far away but luminous and challenging. One of Many Pictures by northatlantic

4. Only a xenolinguist could so skillfully blend hope and skepticism into one dulcet tone.


“Seriously?” she asks, still chuckling and shaking her head. “Have you never had sex with someone you actually cared about?” Borrowing Trouble by savoytruffle

5. The regretful news that your husband, CMO Lt. Cmdr. Leonard H. McCoy, C567-3142MD, was killed in action on stardate 2264.134 on Rigel V has already been delivered to you by Admiral James Komack.


Jim’s pulse stutters for the lost half of a second; he blinks, and the names, the details on the pad in front of him shift before his eyes: Dear Mrs. Favarro; your daughter, Ensign Jacquelyn S. Favarro; killed in action... Beta Canopus, sorely missed - his own signature pending at the bottom. Par Avion by hitlikehammers

6. “Hell if I know. But my attitude is, when a lady asks to be pleasured a little differently this time, a gentleman doesn’t refuse.”


His tummy was already rumbling, just from the sight of Bones in his apron holding his Wooden Spoon of Deliciousness. DILF by janice_lester

7. The figure kneeled next to him, pulling him up by the shoulders, blocking the harsh light and staring at him with wide, familiar eyes. They were green and brown, like spring, without a trace of winter. Before the Dawn by linelenagain

8. With 1,100 people demanding his attention, with crewmembers prizing little bits of his time like shiny presents, it seemed unfair, not to say a little desperate, to presume on an Academy friendship that Kirk might well have outgrown.


"Ah, I get it,” McCoy said, with relief. “Some of the younger crewmembers have developed a crush on you. Well, I can’t say I haven’t noticed. Do you really think it’s a problem? It sounds pretty harmless to me." Cura Te Ipsum by lindmere

9. "Are you gonna make me say it, Jim?" Bones breathes out, gruff, accent grown more pronounced, like always when he's angry or nervous out of his mind. In Truth by mint_amaretto

10. Jim thinks maybe he needs to see a therapist, though, because he’s starting to think that Creepy Thief sounds sexy. Drawn In by inell

11. The moon pie’s too sickly-sweet taste clinging to his tongue, his teeth coated in marshmallow, he stared at the star field, crossed his legs and found himself remembering spring break, their first year at the academy...


I understand you consider yourself an extraordinarily adept lover, James, and I am led to believe that you have the unparalleled ability to give all of your fortunate and numerous partners, of varied genders, and species, that which you modern, godless, materialistic and vacuous twenty-third century citizens refer to as, ‘a great fuck’. Stop Looking at Me by sangueuk

12. Their voices dimmed as the blood rushed into Leonard's ears, buzzing loudly. A guy he used to know? Yeah, he'd read it wrong, right from the start it looked like. Ashbury Heights (The Notting Hill Remix) by sullacat

13. Just then, Scotty arrived, waving a data chip. "I’ve got it!" He went straight to the player and cued up the video. Jim threw his head back and laughed as the title card came up.

"Dude, I’m on this one!"


The car’s rear bumper dipped a bit as the driver punched the gas straight towards the edge. The people watching held their breath, even though they knew it would all turn out okay – the man was sitting next to them, for God’s sake – but still the fear choked them. Earth's Wildest Police Chases by quiet1katie

14. Jim can't help it, he still needs this. He replays the video of his second attempt at the Kobayashi Maru and the way that Bones had turned to him and stared as they lost. Again. Something More by wook77

15. Jim stands still for a moment, still a little breathless from the kiss, frustration and arousal warring on his features. He licks his lips, and shifts tactics. "But Bones ... Bones, I want you." He's trying for seductive, but it comes out kind of petulant instead. The Doctor and the Impatient by yeomanrand and shinychimera

Oh, and no fair guessing your own!

Grr. The author of #6 is looking at that and thinking, aw, damn, 'wielding' would have been so much better than 'holding'...

Am v. curious about #15, BTW, and have bookmarked a couple of the unfamiliar revealed-so-far titles for later perusal.

These lists are awesomesauce. :-)
Sky: [star trek aos] karl braceletskyblue_reverie on April 23rd, 2010 04:41 am (UTC)
Hee hee. I think "holding" is perfectly fine, but I totally know what you mean - I do that to mine ALL THE TIME. I'm constantly editing and tweaking even after they're posted.

Ooh, hope you enjoy the ones you've bookmarked! I'm sure #15 will be revealed shortly, and if not, then I shall reveal the unguessed ones after a while myself, so everyone can enjoy their awesomeness. :D

You should do the meme too! :D

So, I know none of these, but I fully support the concept behind this meme. Yay for fanfiction support! *cheers* Plus, I may check out that Creepy Thief fic, because that sounds kinda sexy to me too. :) Of course, as you know, I have an affinity toward thiefs. :P

Hi bb! You should def check out Drawn In (the Creepy Thief fic) because Jim's a graphic novelist in it! :D I think you'd really like it.

I ♥ you!

#7 Before the Dawn by linelenagain!
I'm a hard-core lurker with no LJ presence, but have been happily following your McCoy/Pike story for some time. In fact the first thing I did when I got stranded in Switzerland by the volcano after 10 days in the Alps was find an internet cafe and catch up on your updates. I never know where I've been in fandom and can never refind fics so was watching your meme as a kind of rec list (and I've read #5 and #8 but who knows where). And then I was reading Linelenagain's fics this morning and there it was! "wide, familiar eyes... green and brown"

Aha! I totally would've gotten that savoytruffle one with the second line. I've read that fic a bajillion times. :-D

Oh man, the one about a lady asking to be pleasured a different way, that's totally a janice_lester fic, yeah? The one about Bones being a DILF?
Sky: [star trek aos] karl heartskyblue_reverie on April 27th, 2010 02:54 am (UTC)
I love the savoytruffle fic. That first line has always stood out to me, because I can just totally hear Uhura using that tone of voice. But I'm glad the second one let it get recognized!

And as for #6 you are correct! It is by janice_lester and it is called DILF, so I'm giving you credit. You rock at this!

But I love it anyway! Can't wait for the final reveal. :)

Thanks for putting us our of our misery. I KNEW that I'd read a couple more of the stories but I really had no clue where to begin.
This was really fun despite (or because) of the frustration.

And speaking of commenting on stories we like. I'm bad at giving feedback but I absolutely love how you're developing the Pike/Mccoy series. A lot of people rush straight to the good stuff (not that I'm complaining) but you've made them very real people with hard issues. <3

Sky: [star trek aos] pike mccoy heartskyblue_reverie on April 29th, 2010 06:35 pm (UTC)
Aww, I'm glad you had fun despite/because of the frustration. :D It was great fun to run the contest! Way more fun (to me anyway) than wracking my brain going "I KNOW I've read that fic! ARGH!" ;)

And thank you so much for the lovely comment on the Pike/McCoy series. I'm so happy that you're enjoying. A lot of the waiting to deal with the hard issues is due to my co-author Jude because I'm always like "But I want MOAR PORN NAO" and she's like "no, no, they have to work this stuff out first" and I'm like "DAMMIT. ...okay, you're right." :P Anyway, feel free to come out and comment anytime. I love my commenters and I tend to get embarrassingly gushy all over them. Um, hope that isn't a deterrent, actually. *ponders*
