I have found my favorite nu!Star Trek fic.

It's gen. Here. Heee. Heee. HEEEE. Awesome. (I love all of that writer's stuff and recommend you check it out, but that one is my favorite). Lots of McCoy never hurt. And I am a sucker for "every day" type of stuff in fic and canon - see my love for that Battlestar Galactica ep "A Day In the Life," my all-time favorite BSG ep except for glorious "33", a.k.a. best pilot for a show in the history of ever.

My favorite canon shippy fic remains the fic of awesome [livejournal.com profile] monimala. There are three of them and they are AWESOME. Here is a link to the last of the three which also links to the other two.

If anyone has GEN fic recs for nu!ST I will love you forever. I can find all the Spock/Uhura fic I can ever want on the [livejournal.com profile] spock_uhura comm (and I never read uncanonical shipping stuff) but gen fic is an elusive elusive beast even if it's my favorite one.

Suggestively waves *Trek News* in your general direction once more. They sort all new fic into het/slash/gen. So if you are a looking for gen fic, you could try to browse there.

I'm always looking for good gen fic.

http://users.livejournal.com/_seven_crows/tag/star+trek - There are about five stories here - all gen. I really liked them.

http://sparky77.livejournal.com/596751.html - this is also gen, it has a bit of UST, but it's good gen.

I'm reading EVERYTHING trying to find something good - when I hit more gen, I'll pass it your way.

http://marag.livejournal.com/899910.html - more recs here.

http://community.livejournal.com/st_reboot/133933.html - This is a short little drabble, but I LOVED IT.

http://community.livejournal.com/st_reboot/132850.html - post movie gen bonding! I'm in love with McCoy, so McCoy fics are my favorites.

Would you ever consider reading any of the novels? I can recommend some awesome ones...

I tend to find particular authors who I think portray the characters & then follow their books over the others.

Sarek by A.C. Crispin was really good - it focuses a lot on Spock with his mother & Sarek's relationship with her, too. I cried, I recall. (She's one of my favorite Star Trek authors - Time for Yesterday & Yesterday's Son are good, too. - she gives Spock an unbeknownst son from episode "All our Yesterdays" & these focus on that son & Spock. )

Diane Duane is another excellent author - most of her books are good - she has a series call "the Rihannsu series" which focuses on Trek/Romulan adventures. "Spock's World" delves into Vulcan's history - prior to logic...when they lived by passion... ;)

I really enjoyed "The Vulcan Academy Murders" & "IDIC Epidemic" by Jean Lorrah, but I don't think they're as well known. They have a good focus on Spock & are funny at times but a good story, too.
Amanda: "How late will we be?"
Spock: "Six days."
Amanda:"Not six-point-one-three-seven?"
Spock:"Six-point-two-five-two. Mother, is it not illogical to be annoyed when Father or I give you a precise figure yet ask for such precision when we do not?"
Amanda:"No, just Human."

L.A. Graf writes the best books that tend to focus on the wonderful (& oft neglected) dynamic of Uhura/Sulu/Chekov. They really come to life & are very funny. "Traitor Winds" was one of my favorites - Chekov becomes a guy who really kicks butt! "Firestorm" is hilarious & brings back the Elassians from episode "Elaan of Troyus".

"Shadows on the Sun" by Michael Jan Friedman explores McCoy & his past - it's an epic read like "Sarek".

"Strangers from the sky" by Margaret Wander Bonanno is another epic adventure exploring an top-secret accidental first contact by some Vulcans & Kirk & Spock traveling back in time to save the day & cement their epic friendship.

"Killing Time" by Della Van Hise deals with a Romulan enduced alternate time-line that's bleeding into the original time-line & creating havoc on everyone's minds. This one also deals with the epic Spock/Kirk friendship amazingly.

"Ishmael" by Barbara Hambly has a fun adventure with Spock in earth's past w/amnesia & playing poker.

"Uhura's Song" by Janet Kagan was good & also fascinating with it's focus on linguistics.

What's amazing is my sister a dozen states away is the one who owns almost every book & I moved away 6 years ago. I haven't read any of those in years but still remember many of them vividly - I just had to look up authors & a few titles.
