uhura: can't handle me

Challenge 50: Something Like a Phenomena (McCoy/Uhura)

Fandom Category: Star Trek XI
Pairing: McCoy/Uhura
Fic Title: Something Like a Phenomena
Author: mardia
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, light and consensual dom/sub
Genre: Porn
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:
Long after McCoy has worked through his divorce and Uhura has moved past her separation from Spock, McCoy and Uhura find each other and have scorching hot (and slightly kinky) sex. Calling this story porn is inadequate because it's really about intimacy as much as it is about sex. I McCoy and Uhura are two consenting adults who are honest about what works for them, and their d/s experiences are much more about equality than dominance.

WIP?: Possible two-shot

Why This Must Be Read: This isn't just a shipping fic, the author actually delves into Riku's psyche and what effects his past (and Namine) have wrought on him. Narrated from an unusual take on third-person POV, this is definitely something to be checked out if you're a fan of the pairing.
