Fic Title: Detention
Why This Must Be Read: This story is a really sexy and fun version of how they got together. There is a slightly antagonistic dimension to their relationship here, which is not explored enough in fandom, especially considering how they were portrayed in the hangar scene from the movie.

Fic Title: Po-wak (aftermath)
Why This Must Be Read: This is the follow-up to the ever popular Miscommunication (but this story stands alone just fine) and I find it to be the most engaging story about the aftermath of the films' events, and also the most fitting with my head canon. All the characters are very well-rounded. The Spock/Uhura relationship understandably is a little more subdued here than the fireworks in Miscommunications, but they are very consistent and well-written.
