Star Trek: Reboot, 5 recs, Christine Chapel/Leonard McCoy

Fandom: Star Trek: Reboot
Pairing: Christine Chapel/Leonard McCoy
Fic Title: Untitled
Author: silverlining_99
Link: http://silverlining-99.livejournal.com/29671.html
Rating/Warning(s): NC17
Genre: Romance, Drama, Sex
WIP? No
Special Rec: 1/100

Why This Must Be Read: I could quite happily rec every story of silverlining_99's, so it seems only right that I should start my specialreccers month with one of my favourites of hers.

Untitled is a response to a kink!prompt for McCoy and Chapel to have sex in the middle of an emergency, with the first part of the story showing a "missing scene" from the battle in the movie, and the second part dealing with the aftermath of both the battle and that moment. While sex is obviously a key aspect of the fic, it is the Chapel and McCoy's characterisations, and the emotions and stress behind their reactions to the battle, that will stay with you, after. Beautifully written.

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 2/100

Why This Must Be Read: When all the male crewmembers on Enterprise are affected by an unknown chemical substance, it's up to the women to take charge and save the day. At turns funny, dramatic and sexy, this is an extremely entertaining story that takes a treadworn trope and retells it superbly.

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: Romance, Sex
WIP? No
Special Rec: 3/100

Why This Must Be Read: Five hours after being exposed to an alien pollen, McCoy and Chapel have finally reached the breaking point of their control. This is trope!fic -- extremely well-written and intense and hot trope!fic, with a final line that is sweet and disturbing in equal measure.

Fic Title: Don't Give A Damn ('Bout My Bad Reputation)
Author: vega_ofthe_lyre
Link: http://issenterprise.livejournal.com/85594.html
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: mirror!verse, Drama, Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 4/100

Why This Must Be Read: Written for a remix challenge, Don't Give A Damn takes a sweet story where Chapel defends McCoy's honour, and twists it into an excellent mirror!verse tale about that time when our!McCoy and mirror!McCoy switched realities. Well written, with wonderfully twisted characterisations and pitch perfect dialogue, this is mirror!verse story telling at its best.

Fic Title: Roughshod
Author: oparu

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: mirror!verse, Romance
WIP? No
Special Rec: 5/100

Why This Must Be Read: I'll admit to being biased about this fic -- it was written for me in last year's happy_trekmas exchange -- but it is also an example of everything that is good about the mirror!verse. oparu's Chapel is determined to survive, to get what she wants, and to trust in something, no matter how dangerous that might be.
