Fic Rec List: Tarsus IV

I am attempting to create the definitive list of Star Trek fics that deal with Tarsus IV, as I am a Tarsus junkie. I have TOS and Star Trek XI, gen and NC-17, kid!fic and flashbacks, and lots and lots of angst. (Please remember to read any warnings on the fic itself, as some are NC-17 and some deal with issues some readers don't want to read, and I usually won't mention these things on the list.) Any fic that even mentions Tarsus will be included on this list, and I'm making no comments about quality (though, really, most of these are completely awesome). Sometimes, simply putting these on the list may spoil part of the story, but that can't be helped. Please feel free to enjoy the list, and if you know of any fics I've missed, please please please send me the links.



Updates: From now on, updates and status changes will be marked in rotating colors (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and pink). When I get through them all, I'll get rid of the *updated* tag in the first color and use that same color for the new updates. Currently, the newest updates are in red, so the oldest updates are in orange and so on.

*Note* I want to thank everyone who takes the time to comment with new links for me to add to this list. When I began this project, there really weren't that many Tarsus fics out there. Star Trek might have been around for over forty years and yes, it was the very first fandom for "modern" fanfiction, but there really wasn't much of it compared to, say, Harry Potter, or even CSI. Since the 2009 movie came out, the number of fics has skyrocketed and I have to admit to not keeping up with them all, as I am currently into other fandoms. But even with other loves, my love for Tarsus fic has not diminished, Classic Trek or New, and I am overwhelmed at the amount of support my little hobby has gotten. Thank you all!!! And enjoy!!


6/25 Update: So, my plan is to start using more universe tags. I'm thinking TOS (based on canon), TOS AU (TOS-based but set in a different reality, making canon invalid), ST XI (takes place within the movie universe), and ST XI AU (based on the movie version of the characters, but changing things so the movie isn't valid). I'm also adding TOS Novel, for fics based on the published novels, since those are based on canon but aren't technically part of canon and aren't AUs either (ok, you can make a case for Killing Time being an AU novel, but still...) And of course, this plan ignores the fact that ST XI is technically a TOS AU itself. :D For any fic where it's ambiguous whther it's TOS or ST XI (and that goes to show great writing and great characters!), I went with whatever the author said the universe was. I'm still working slowly on updates (Father's Day is OVER!!!), so anything I add will have the new tags, but I'll take more time going through the older links and updating the tags (because I can't remember the universe for each one, though some are obvious). I'm coloring the new tags seafoam for now, so people know which ones have been updated. When they're all done, I'll remove the colors.

*And on a similar note, does anyone want pairing tags? I have a few out there already, but I didn't make a habit of it. I know some pairings are either a turn-off or a draw to some people. I was trying to let the fics stand on their own (and usually the warnings will mention them if you read the warnings, which you should ), but does anyone have an opinion?

Key:
   Brief mention=Tarsus (and/or Kirk's experience on the planet) is mentioned, but only in passing.
   Plot point=Kirk being on Tarsus is important to at least part of the story, but is not what the story is about.
   Focal plot point=The story revolves around Kirk's experience on Tarsus in one way or another.

*Some fics are about other characters than Kirk being on Tarsus. The key holds for them as well. :)

If you want these notes to be more detailed, let me know. Also, if you think I mislabeled a fic, please let me know.

This is a possible prolouge to a future longer fic. The prolouge ends with Jim and Sam going to Tarsus to live with their aunt.

Observations

The fic Observations is -huge-, yeah, but it's so good, one of my all time favorite Star Trek fics (only surpassed slightly by Atlas and Home). I suggest you read it. I'm actually shamelessly reading it again for the second time (only on chapter 23, but still).

Tarsus IV is mentioned briefly in Chapters 36-39 and mentioned only in passing every now and then afterwards. But it's in there, as one of the many arcs that the author puts in.

Re: Observations

Thanks for letting me know where the Tarsus part is! I'll put that in the list. I do plan on reading it, but my list of things to read keeps getting longer and longer, both on the net and actual books. I tend to put off starting the long ones because while I absolutely love them, they just take so much time. Right now, I'm on a huge Torchwood kick. I'll swing back around to Star Trek at some point and probably read Observations then.

Recogition's status

The fic Recognition that you have on here has been updated recently so while it might have been listed as complete before, it's current status is WIP. Its current stopping point isn't really a cliffhanger, but it's definitely unresolved. You might want to consider changing the status so no one is confused.

Depth by David J. Knight

Nyota Uhura always thought Jim Kirk was a simple man, easy to read. She never realized how wrong she was about the depth of his soul. Friendship fic. One-shot. Complete
Plot point

Lucky Star Verse

master list can be found here http://kuhekabir.livejournal.com/236719.html

first chapter in the series already contains a mention of Tarsus IV

It is the Author's first foray in the Star Trek fandom but kuhekabir´s previous work in the supernatural fandom is promising.

You will have to ask to be friended because the journal is friendlocked but it is worth it.
I overlooked it but the Lucky Verse is open to the public.
Heyla, I noticed that you weren't sure how much Tarsus was in Observations, and I just finished reading what's posted. Tarsus is a plot point with the first implications of it starting around 24ish ^^

I have to say this list is made of awesome as I've been on a big Tarsus kick lately and I've found a whole lot of new stories to read ^^

WIP, looks promising.
Title: The Sunshine of My Love (WIP)

Summary: Jim and Bones met three years before life flung them together at the Academy, in New Orleans. Natural attraction struck, and now Jim is the proud father of Joanna Kirk, his two year old daughter. He never expected to see Bones again, but when a surly southern doctor stumbles onto the same shuttle as him...well, at least his life is spicing up again. Past mpreg. Tarsus IV mention in chapter 2.
