Pairing: Gaila/Montgomery Scott
Fic title: Say I do and Kiss Me Quick
Genre: post-movie, romance, friendship, fluff
Why this must be read: I don't know how I came to ship this couple. They never shared a scene, Galia is presumed dead after the first 30 mins, but somehow here I am, shipping them because somehow they shouldn't work on paper but they do. I blame fic for this. Fic just like this one. Super cute fic about the relationship between Galia and Scotty. There's on universal rule about relationship on the Enterprise: DON'T TAKE ADVICE FROM THE CAPTAIN. Scotty, does not follow this rule and makes a mess of things. Don't worry though, it's all still pretty cute.
Fic title: Crossed Wires
Genre: post-movie, romance, miscommunication ftw, ust, friendship
Why this must be read: I love this fic because it plays on one of my favourite fandom and fic cliches: misunderstanding what the other person is doing bringing about moments of awkward cuteness. Gaila thinks Scotty doesn't like her, because his ear turn pink around her. It's so cute how wrong she is.
Fic title: Can't Blame Everything on the Pheremones
Genre: post-movie, romance, ust
Why this must be read: Cute flirty fic in which Scotty thinks Gaila's pheromones are fuelling his attraction for her. Oh, Scotty, feelings are hard, aren't they? I love the tone of this fic, light, fun and sweet. Much like the couple in question.
Pairing: Gaila/Montgomery Scott,, Christine Chapel/Leonard McCoy, Nyota Uhura/Spock and Janice Rand/Jim Kirk
Fic title: Just Another Day At The Office
Genre: post-movie, action, ladies being awesome, hilarity
Why this must be read: This one cinched it though. Me OTPing them, that is. Doesn't hurt that it all about the ladies saving the guys and the guys looking on smitten as hell as this all happens. Also really funny.
