Don’t Stop Believing Master Post

Here’s the combined explanation/navigation post for the story Don’t Stop Believing.

Genre: Romance/Character study/Action. Spock-centric. Spock’s POV.

Main pairings: Pike/Spock, Kirk/Spock, with a sidekick of Spock/Uhura. Essentially, the story starts with Pike/Spock, slow-building and gradual, and will end with Kirk/Spock, equally slow-building. Kirk/Spock are my OTP, this relationship will be the central in the story – BUT it’s a long road to walk to all the good things – you have been warned. I do promise lots of UST along the way. About Spock/Uhura I can only say this: It wasn’t my idea, okay? The scriptwriters did what they did, and since this story isn’t AU in Reboot-verse, there will be some Spock/Uhura. I like Uhura as a character, so don’t expect any Uhura-bashing. There won’t be very much Spock/Uhura action, though.

The story is a WIP, THIS STORY IS NOW COMPLETE!
but roughly, main pairings will look like this:

Part I: Pike/Spock
Part II: Pike/Spock, Spock/Uhura
Part III: Pike/Spock post-slash, Spock/Uhura, Kirk/Spock pre-slash
Part IV: Kirk/Spock pre-slash
Part V: Kirk/Spock slash

Characters: McCoy, Uhura, Scotty, Chekov, Sulu, Gaila, N1, T’Pol, Gary Mitchell, Sarek, Chapel, Barnett, Archer, various OCs.

Rating: Overall NC-17, but various parts go back to PG.

Warnings: Sexual situations, some violence, some language. Part I includes a description of a non-con not involving main characters. Part III includes some mild self-harm.

Story summary: The story follows Spock from his own days as a cadet at Starfleet Academy to the ‘present day’ when he’s Kirk’s first officer and the Enterprise is on its five-year mission. Essentially, the story of Spock’s first real love followed by the story of him finding the love of his life. Ad astra per aspera.

Beta: All hail my fantastic beta secret_chord25 ! Seriously, folks, if it weren’t for her, this monster would likely be completely incomprehensible. <333

Word Count:
Part I: ~27 000
Part II: ~28 200
Part III: ~29 800
Part IV: ~51 200
Interlude: ~10 700

Please read, enjoy, comment!

Magnificent effort
I read parts i ii and iii in one sitting. A fic that can keep me outta bed is an amazingly good story because I LOVE MY BED!

I cant thank you enough for posting such a well plotted and characterized fic. I cant wait for parts iv and v.

I normally avoid WIP's because abandoned fics break my heart but you are worth the risk.

Re: Magnificent effort
Thank you very much! *grins*
Nope, it's a WIP, but it's not abandoned. It just might take a while. Stay tuned. ;)

I'm really sorry for the wait. Part IV is taking longer than expected, but partly because it's wicked long itself.

So, I remember when I started reading this, the only part that was completed was Part I. I had read it on fanfiction.net, and I had no idea when you were going to update again -- gloom ensued.

THeennnnnn, you commented on one of my friend's stories, I randomly followed your page back here and discovered that there were more more parts written!!!! the gloom dissipated!

And now I'm just tryin' to catch up XD... but once I catch up there will be more of the waiting gloom.
