Big Bang Fic: Refractions, Kirk/Spock [Masterpost]  
Title: Refractions
Author: bigmamag
Betas: ifyouweremine and [info]pasty_pants
Word Count:
mention of past non-con (alternate reality)
Paramount owns them, I take them out for dirty play dates.
Two separate parallel universes merge with their own as the Enterprise is sent to an unknown planet where a dangerous phenomenon is destroying ships and expanding outward.
Author's Note(s):
This story was initially inspired by the Smallville story Convergence, which itself was inspired by the Star Trek TNG novel Q-Squared. It also jacks stuff from draws heavily from the original series. Much thanks to my two awesome betas, ifyouweremine for being a beta ninja, going over the whole thing twice, going into crazy detail for my benefit, and pasty_pants who helped me plot it out, listened to me bitch, and helped this fic even get finished in the first place.

Bookmarking to read properly when I have time :)

Also I see the new pretty banner is in, leaving no doubt as to whom this particular fangirls ships. I approve!

Also I changed the journal title. I feel that both of these changes sum up my entire existence quite well. :D

I really enjoyed your story! Parts were heartbreaking though. :(

Ooh thanks! Yeah, parts were a bit heartbreaking, but alas, no one likes stories about Kirk and Spock skipping through meadows in every alternate universe...wait, that might actually be fascinating, LOL.

Wow, I just read your fic last night, and I absolutely adored it. I thought the whole premise was clever and the way you brought all the three universes together at the end was brilliant. I didn't think that I would like the third universe Kirk and Spock either, but by the end I was really hoping that everything worked out for them too.
Big Mama G: kirk/spockbigmamag on December 27th, 2009 06:31 am (UTC)
Thanks! Yeah, that batshit insane universe just grows on you, mostly because you know that they're only that way because their circumstances were much more difficult, so they had to evolve into these ruthless people to survive.
I think the show was still running... here.: Kirk&Spock - Contempating Youaerowyn on December 31st, 2009 12:21 am (UTC)
That fic was amazing! I loved every minute of it! The characterizations in each of the universes were really interesting and still contained small bits of the characters I know and love. You did an amazing job!

ETA: I also commented over at the archive, but I wanted to make sure you got the comment :)

I really enjoyed this story. It was complicated, but exciting. I particularly liked your Reboot version of the Mirror Verse. I would have loved to see more stories set there.
All in all, I really like the balance you kept between the three universes, giving them all strengths and flaws that somehow complimented each other for the reader, but made the characters themselves crash together.
Big Mama G: kirk/spockbigmamag on January 1st, 2010 09:35 pm (UTC)
I'm glad you enjoyed it!

You're in luck because I just finished with a prequel set in that universe and it just went to the beta and then I get to grapple some more with it. :)

After the most excellent Refractions I was sort of secretly hoping that we might get to see a bit more of the "Track C" universe. This was even better than anything I could have hoped for. Thanks so much!
Big Mama G: kirk/spockbigmamag on January 8th, 2010 11:10 pm (UTC)
I'm glad it met your approval! :D

Whoa. I gotta say, this is some magnificent storytelling. Three very different universes, yet I had no difficulty distinguishing between them, and everywhere the characterization was very convincing. I naturally gravitated toward track B, but I wouldn't mind finding out how things went on in universe A. ;)

Incredibly captivating. Whew! :D
Big Mama G: team spork!bigmamag on January 8th, 2010 11:15 pm (UTC)
Thanks for the awesome feedback! I'm glad I didn't confuse too many people, lol. And I'm glad you gravitated toward track B, because it's easy to get caught up in the appeal of track C. It's like track C is hardcore metal, track A is easy listening, and track B is romance movie pop music. :)

this was by far the most interesting and creative fic i have ever read. this was incredible.
Big Mama G: kirk/spockbigmamag on February 6th, 2010 01:11 am (UTC)
Oh wow, Thanks so much, that's incredible! :D

Re: Russian translation
Oh sure, you definitely have my permission! I'd like a link to the finish translation so I can point others to it. :D
