in having new eyes by betweenthebliss (R)

Fandom Category: Star Trek '09
Pairing: George Kirk/Winona Kirk (also some Winona/OC)
Fic Title: In Having New Eyes
Author: betweenthebliss

Rating/Warning(s): R/canonical character death, non-explicit sex
Genre: drama/romance/friendship
WIP?: No.

Why This Must Be Read: Winona and George seem to have an immediate chemistry that for a time is obvious to everyone except Winona, and their interactions are laugh-out-loud funny when the two aren't frustratingly stepping around their emotions. Only about fifty percent of this fic is the story of the time Winona had with George before the disaster that occurs at the beginning of the reboot, but what the author accomplishes with the canonically merely glimpsed character of Mrs. Kirk both before and in the wake of her grief creates a character who feels complicated and real. Winona's often strained but poignant friendship with Pike is also memorable and stacks up well with how he's involved in the film.
