Pairing: Nyota Uhura/James Kirk
Fic Title: The Disobedience of the Heart
Author: Spock Jones
Special Rec: 24/31
Why This Must Be Read: this fic is, technically, set in TOS, but i’ve only ever seen the reboot and this fic fits nicely into that universe too. i like kirk here – he’s funny and capable. this author avoids the unfortunate fannish tendency toward writing uhura as a bitch, and instead goes for the smart, funny, butt-kicking canon character. well written, and pretty succinct in 5 chaps. it’s worth a read.
