Mijan's Academy Series by mijan:

  • Convergence: Christopher Pike wasn't supposed to be in Iowa, but there he was, weighing his future against scales that would never balance. Jim Kirk had given up on his future long ago. Leonard McCoy's past had been pulled out from underneath him, and he was ready to let his future go with it. Paths converge in the least likely places as three people realize that their futures are what they make of them.

  • And All The King's Men: "How many times can you patch up something before you realize that it's too fucking broken to fix, Bones?" When a training simulation uncovers something that Cadet Jim Kirk was never meant to remember, it breaks him. Leonard McCoy can't sit by and watch Jim crumble. When asked what he's willing to do to get the old Jim back, Leonard has only one answer. "Anything." (*)

  • Crossfire: Jim Kirk and Leonard McCoy are on top of the world at the academy until it all comes crashing down around them. Trapped in their own mystery of politics, sabotage, and possible murder, it quickly becomes impossible to know who to trust. Worse, Jim might still be a target. With a dangerous criminal on the loose and Academy leadership not doing enough, Jim and Bones have to get their lives back together and find out what happened... before it happens again.

  • The Needs of the Few: As cadets on a summer internship, Kirk and McCoy are supposed to keep their eyes open and their mouths shut. As far as Bones is concerned, that’s just plain wrong on Jim Kirk, but Jim seems determined to follow orders and fall in line for a change. After all, they’ve both seen enough trouble in two years at the Academy, and this is the Peace Mission of Axanar. However, when a mystery starts to weave itself around the mission, and the senior officers don’t seem interested in investigating, how far can Kirk and McCoy let it go?

Western Skies by anruiukimi:

  • Under An Atomic Sky: Chris Pike gets a very odd call from an old friend in the middle of the night, and his life is never the same...

  • Where Men Can't Walk: Where Jim is not lonely, he likes the peace and quiet of the desert, and he wishes certain people would just shut up about it already.

  • Or Freely Talk: Jonathan Archer isn't a doctor by any means; but as he has found out many times during his career, sometimes you just have to rise to the challenge. Caffeine usually helps. Also could be called: Where John is a monologuing old man, but really, can you blame him?

  • At His Father's Right Hand: Chris is generally of the opinion that he is pretty damned good at what he does, hell, Starfleet even agrees with him. But captaining a starship and raising a genius son who just happens to have wings are entirely two different things, as reality has enforced on multiple occasions. Also could be called: Chris tries to be a good dad. Really, he does.

  • In Search of Experience: Jim has issues. He knows this. People without issues don't generally get into bar brawls just to get their head to calm down. They also aren't completely paranoid over people trying to get into their pants. Honestly...he's just getting really tired of secrets. Could also be called: Jim might be a bit in love. He may take awhile to figure this out, though.

  • Looking for One Good Man: Len was once a plain old country doctor, not so long ago. He hasn't quite figured out how ended up basically courting an angel, ending up in space, and becoming a hero, but at least one of the three isn't so bad. He thought he had lost most of his family when he left Georgia, but he may have just found a new one when he wasn't looking. (WiP, possibly abandoned)

Graduate Vulcan for Fun and Profit by suppi-chan: It really does take a village to raise a Jim.
