The Desert Between by Beatrice Otter

'Across the room, seated on the only chair, was the oldest Vulcan woman Nyota had ever seen in person. Her face was seamed with age, and her eyes held the tranquility younger Vulcans only aspired to.' A plausible premise, strong world-building & an interesting range of OCs characterise this novelette

[Added 18/10/2011; Drama; 6000-20,000; ST: TOS/AOS; Characters: Nyota Uhura, Spock, OCs]

No Roses on Vulcan by Igrockspock

'Vulcans did not grow flowers for ornamental purposes. It was illogical.' The dry humour saves this sweet vignette from sickliness, as Sarek & his mother attempt to understand human customs

[Added 25/05/2012; Romance/Erotica; 1000-2500; ST: TOS/AOS; Characters: Sarek, Amanda Grayson, Sarek's mother]
