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 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 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.
