Star Trek Reboot: 6 Gaila/Scotty Recs

Fandom Category: Star Trek (2009)
Pairing: Gaila/Montgomery Scott
Fic Title: Tiny Spark
Author: Metarie
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Romance, Humor

Why this must be read:  Ever thought of these two as a ship? I didn't either until I stumbled onto this fic and read it out of curiosity. Somehow I've become a full blown shipper for them, even though there is literally no evidence on-screen to support them. This fic is where it starts, and Metarie has a list of magnificently in character and superbly written oneshots and multi-chaptered stories revolving around this pairing. "Tiny Spark" in particular is the first in a series of three royally excellent fics. And if you're not already madly in love with these two after the first one, you absolutely will be the end of the third. She captures their voices, and those of the other Star Trek characters, so effortlessly that I swear Scotty/Gaila is secretly canon. These are re-reads for sure. <3

I'll also include links for the sequels: #2, "Slow Burn", here and #3, "Signal Fire", here (#3 has an added element of action/adventure!!). Both are also PG-13, though I would say #3 is a stronger PG-13 for minor violence, language, etc.

Fic Title: Undone: A Sweater Story
Author: felleny
Rating: PG-13 to light R, for very light swearing and impending sex
Genre: Romance, Humor

Why this must be read:  It deals with already established Scotty/Gaila, being cute. He can't find his favorite sweater and then he finds her, wearing only the sweater. Cute and sexy little oneshot.

Fic Title: Secret Moments
Author: exiled mind
Rating: PG
Genre: Romance

Why this must be read: It's very short, but it captures such a cute little moment you can't help but smile.

Fic Title: We've Missed You
Author: exiled mind
Rating: PG
Genre: Romance, Drama, Hurt/Comfort, Friendship

Why this must be read: Scotty struggles to recover in Sick Bay after an accident. Gaila is at his bedside and the very end of this little oneshot is perfect and adorable.
