Even though it was a darker look into the mirrorverse, it still had its fluffy moments. I love a bossy Spock.

just a word from and old fangirl. the empire is star wars. star trek has the federation. the only empires in star trek are romulan, klingon and cardassian, and they are the baddies. well, most of the time. oh, and the borg have an empire as well. the good guys are a federation, the united federation of planets.

sorry, your referring to the federation as the empire kinda twinged my rabid fangirl center. i don't mean to sound harsh or critical.

You haven't understand the point of the fic. This story isn't set in the Movie universe but in a Mirrorverse (see "Mirror, Mirror" episode of The Original Series - search for Memory Alpha wiki to learn more), the empire mentioned here is not a "foreign Empire" but this universe's version of the Federation. In the Mirroverse, which is another Alternative Universe and not JJ Abram's one, there is no Federation of Planets but an Empire and Starfleet there is part of the Empire. Their means are very different, conquering instead of get new members for the federation, and people are less "refined" and more willing to use "everything" to succeed.

In the original Episode Chekov and Sulu try to get rid of Captain Kirk to raise ranks, for crying out loud!

So, if you read this reply, you may want to discover what Mirroverse means by searching at Memory Alpha and then re-read the fic. You will see the author has been really tame in this story because, despite Jim saying he won't put Spock above his carrer, he's already suffering for the idea of losing him love despite the harsher world:

iHe couldn't afford to show any sign of weakness if he wanted to survive another day as captain of the Enterprise. He was too sore to protect himself from another attack just now and he knew that soon he wouldn’t be able to rely on Spock to watch his back anymore./i

That's tell you exactly how this world works. In the Movieverse no Admiral would give Jim a mission where he has basically to sleep with the other party to gain something.

I surmised you approached this fic without knowing this wasn't your usual Universe and not knowing what Mirrorverse could mean. I really hope this is why you haven't understood this wonderful fic.

Not fluffy bunnies by normal standards, but pretty damn close for the Mirrorverse. I'm glad that Spock surprised him. Nicely done.

i can't imagine jim 'sleeping' his ways up the ranks or to simply achieve a mission for the sake of the federation. firstly, jim is a sexual being but he isn't a whore, but that's exactly what you're suggesting him to be; he's basically using sex to gain favors and win over potential allies for the federation. While this may be the federation's all time big mission may i just can't imagine jim caring too much about what they think (he's a rule breaker after all). he would get the same result done, but in his own way with his own methods, not by selling his body. in addition, i can't imagine spock agreeing to that either, even if it's for the greater good because vulcans are all about not compromising their principles, and letting your significant other sleep around just to get a contract with a foreign empire falls into the category of heavily compromising if not outright breaking those principles.
