Star Trek, 2 recs, Amanda/Sarek  
Honestly, my only real familiarity with Star Trek is through the reboot movies—which means I fell in love with Amanda Grayson purely through fics like these. Lucky thing I did, because she's fantastic!

Why This Must Be Read: A lovely first-time fic. As the title says, this fic is indeed profound in its navigation of interspecies intimacy—sex, but not only sex—and its handling of two characters who very much care for and want to understand one another.

Why This Must Be Read: Written well before the 2009 reboot but perfectly in line with it, this fic grapples with Amanda's adjustment to Vulcan's strict culture and her now-prominent role among an alien people. Her refusal to compromise herself balances with her love for her new husband and his planet, and her gradual understanding of the nature of change is excellently rendered.

Hey, quick question for the mod: do you know why the Star Wars rec posts didn't get mirrored to Tumblr?

The short answer is no. The slightly longer answer is that we use IFTTT to automate the mirroring, but occasionally it's finicky and doesn't do its job, which has happened more than once over the last couple of weeks. We'll manually cross-post over to Tumblr as needed but have been AFK of late due to holiday travel and celebrations, so we'll try to take care of it as soon as we can!

Hope that answers your question :) Thanks for reccing—I'm excited to read some Rogue One fic!
