The Surprises of Captain Kirk by MagicMysticFantasy reviews
These are a series of unconnected oneshots depicting Kirk's past, skills, quirks, and genius. They take place after Into Darkness, but several mention various things that happened either during or before the movie. The oneshots vary between the point of view of different members of the crew and various strangers of my own creation.

It's no secret that Jim Kirk will lay down his life for his crew. But when an alien race holds five of Jim's crew hostage, he has to bargain for their freedom with only himself as collateral. What is he willing to sacrifice to save their lives: life, liberty, or limbs?

What Sulu Sees by IsmayDeVain reviews
How Kirk Slowly Endears Himself to His Crew by Becoming a Human Punching Bag, Plunging off a 300 Foot Cliff, Getting Crushed by a Giant Ass Pipe, Nearly Getting Blown to Itty Bitty Bits, and Suffocating Because of His Own Medically Inept Body. (Although, not necessarily in that order.) Or five times Kirk puts his crew before himself and one time they return the favor.

Five and One: Things Not To Say In Shi'Kahr by Penbrydd reviews
