Summary: Jim Kirk has survived the Nexus and falling through a black hole into another universe, and he and Spock have settled onto New Vulcan with the rest of the Vulcan colonists. However, the Vulcans are having trouble dealing with their pain, Sybok has appeared, and somehow Jim keeps getting briefly dropped into other universes. Jim may have retired from Starfleet, but he finds there's still plenty of work for him to do.

ART: Embedded in the fic.
Notes: First, enormous thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] amiss for the amazing beta job -- you made this so much better and I am so much more satisfied with it. Many thanks also to [livejournal.com profile] neth_dugan for the wonderful artwork!

This is a sequel to Start Infinity Again. Reading that would definitely help, but I hope it's not necessary. What you basically need to know is that Jim survived Generations, got back together with Spock, fell into the Reboot universe with him, and decided to go to New Vulcan with him at the end of STXI. As a legacy of his time in the Nexus, he has a latent empathic talent, as well as a sort of universe sense, being able to detect universe shifts. He also got a doctorate in starship engineering, just for something to do.

Thanks also go to [livejournal.com profile] thyla_bigbang, for running such a fun bang and giving me the incentive to get this thing finished and posted!

rynne: (guitar talk)
So it's been about two and a half months since I updated. I think that might be the longest I've gone without updating. There's been a lot happening. The most significant of which is, I'm in Africa. I've been living in Kampala, the capital city of Uganda, for the past month and a half, working at a human rights organization. I do like Kampala, and East Africa (a couple weeks ago I went to visit my younger sister in Tanzania), but I am sort of homesick. Living in a country's capital city is not quite the amount of culture shock as if I were in a rural area, but it is still very different. Mostly I'm at the point of appreciating the different while starting to really miss the familiar. Also, I am so done with all the mosquitoes, and I still have five weeks left here. I finished my first year of law school. I didn't do as well grade-wise second semester, but I honestly don't really care all that much. I'm mostly just looking forward to starting my second year, now that I'm taking classes I've actually chosen. I finally finished my [profile] ksbigbang fic. I wanted to have that done back in May, but it didn't really happen. It took me until now partly because of work and Africa, but also partly because I decided to see the Avengers before I left for Africa. Which might not have been a good choice. I have no urge to write any Avengers fic, and no urge to go read the comics, so I think it's not going to be a lasting fandom. Part of the reason I knew Doctor Who and Star Trek would be lasting fandoms was because I started going back and watching old episodes because I wanted to be familiar with the whole universe, not just the reboots. So far, with the Avengers, I've been fine with reading fic based on both the movies and comics universes, and picking up anything I need to know about the comics from context and Wikipedia. Also, Tony Stark is my guy. I probably could have predicted that -- I have a deep weakness for angsty genius. Also, Steve Rogers/Tony Stark as OTP, which I also could have predicted. I just love the complementary opposites, particularly if they're also best friends (as apparently they were in the comics, even if Joss Whedon decided to emulate JJ Abrams and STXI's K/S dynamic with RDJ's Tony and Chris Evans's Steve. What is it with reboots turning the best friends dynamic into antagonistic-until-forced-to-work-together?). I think those are all the things of significance right now.

Goodbye, November. You were mostly significant for me finally being able to post my Big Bang. Which, you know, in case anyone missed it -- Start Infinity Again. Generations fix-it! Kirk Prime in Reboot! Crotchety old married couple space husbands!

I've been working out my notes for more of the universe starting with that fic. Yes, notes. I don't have a spreadsheet, but that's mostly because I don't really know what to do with a spreadsheet. I do have a table in a word document, though. It's got basic idea details for each planned fic, plot notes for the fic and where it fits into the universe, and character notes for what I'm trying to do with the characters. It's...really organized. Much more organized than I usually get for fic. XD

And at least two more of the fics have expanded in my mind into becoming chaptered fics. Not necessarily very long chaptered fics, but still chaptered. But I'm going to have to wait to actually write any of them until winter break. Which, speaking of.

One last day of classes, and one class left. Next Tuesday is my first final, the 15th is my last, and then I'll be done with my first semester of law school. Wow, that went quickly.

I'm trying not to freak out. Last week my Contracts prof gave us a practice exam question that he'd meet to give us individualized feedback on, and my meeting with him was today, and he said my answer was one of the best in the class. Which was, wow, not expecting that. We talked about the things I could improve, and then our last Contracts class today was a review session, so I feel pretty prepared for that. It's the other two I'm more worried about. *sigh*

Okay, two and a half more weeks of school, and about as long until I post my [livejournal.com profile] ksadvent fic. So...I need to write that, while studying for exams. At least I have a pretty solid idea -- now I just need to sit down and write it.

I've been...expectedly productive this year. :p

Notes: First of all, enormous thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] ansley15, who whipped this thing into shape and whose advice made me so much happier with it. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] jactrades for the amazing art, and to [livejournal.com profile] vertrauen for the awesome mix. Thank you as well to [livejournal.com profile] solara1357 for assuring me the story wasn't as bad as I thought it was, and to [livejournal.com profile] ladyblahblah, who listened to me talk about it and helped me with some tricky moments.

This story overlaps with canon in several places. There is dialogue from Generations, dialogue and story from STXI, and quite a bit of the dialogue and story from Star Trek: Countdown, the comic prequel to XI (which makes that movie make a lot more sense, by the way).

I started this story because I've read a few "Kirk survives Generations and reunites with Spock" stories, though depressingly few, and I've read several "Kirk Prime and Spock Prime are reunited in XI-verse," but I was unable to find any that did what I most wanted. Namely, the "Kirk survives Generations" fics tended to end with his reunion with Spock, but what I really wanted to see was his life after that -- how did he adapt to life in the future? And he wasn't that old in Generations, so if he survived that movie, he could conceivably have lived long enough to be there for the events of XI. No one seemed to have written that story, though -- so I did it myself. I hope you all like it.

And finally: There are more stories in this universe, including two shorter chaptered fics already completed following the further adventures of Kirk Prime and Spock Prime in XI-verse. There will also be more about the new crew of the Enterprise when I have time to write them. However, my beta for this story doesn't think she'll have time to do more stories, so I need a beta who's willing to tackle a whole developing universe. Please PM me if you're interested, and I'll give you more details on what I'm looking for. Thanks!

Chapter One | Chapter Two | Chapter Three | Chapter Four | Chapter Five | Chapter Six | Chapter Seven | Chapter Eight | Chapter Nine | Chapter Ten | Chapter Eleven | Chapter Twelve | Epilogue

You must know that I do not love you and that I love you,
because everything alive has its two sides;
a word is one wing of silence,
fire has its cold half.

I love you in order to begin to love you,
to start infinity again
and never to stop loving you:
that's why I do not love you yet.

I love you, and I do not love you, as if I held
keys in my hand: to a future of joy—
a wretched, muddled fate—

My love has two lives, in order to love you:
that's why I love you when I do not love you,
and also why I love you when I do.

--Pablo Neruda, Sonnet XLIV
