Some fanfiction as a palate cleanser…

Tangled Destinies by Keira Marcos

Rating: 5 out of 5.

One of my favourite fanfics. Star Trek AOS, Spirk, alternate storyline with Kirk and Spock meeting for the first time on Earth as 16-year olds. Kirk is part Betazoid, which leads to all kinds of telepathic shenanigans. There is also a lot of drama. Well written and a lot of fun. I tend to re-read it every now and then. This is the first story arch. There were plans for two more, but sadly they never happened. Still, good fun.

I used to read a lot of fanfiction — Star Trek, Sherlock Holmes, Stargate Atlantis, LOTR, The Hobbit, Avengers… for a while I read almost nothing but. It was really addictive and I could not stop. But eventually it didn‘t satisfy me anymore and I returned to reading published novels, etc. Every now and then I pick up one of my old favourites, but I do not really go online to explore new stories. I don‘t want to get hoked again. Isn‘t that weird?
