ST The Pretty

one uhura/kirk rec

Fandom Category: Star Trek Reboot
Pairing: Nyota Uhura/James T. Kirk
Fic Title: For I Know the Songs Sung and Tales Told by the Gossiping Birds
Author: kariye
Rating/Warning(s): Somewhere between Hard-R and Light NC17; past-Uhura/OMC; Minor Character Death (it's Gaila you guys); Verbal and Emotional Abuse by an OMC

Why This Must Be Read: Don't let the warnings scare you off because this story is really about learning to trust and believe again. There is a lot of greatness here that moves in its subtleties that you experience being blindsided by both the good and the bad simultaneously with the character(s). Things are also completely understated in how much this relationship actually means to them both individually and together. It's an interesting take on the personal reasons behind the tension we see on screen. Oh, and did I mention it's ALL Uhura POV? Cos it totally is.
