Atlas is a very popular[1] Star Trek: Reboot novel by Angel Baby1. It is slow building Kirk/Spock slash, but Kirk-centric and quite long (~157k words). It also inspired fanart.

Summary (FF.Net): "Between what was and what will be stands James Tiberius Kirk, in all his fractured patchwork glory. Because saving the Federation was only the beginning."[2]

Recs and Reviews

"Slightly AU. Spock and Jim are soulmates in this slow building epic with angst out the wazoo. Her Jim is almost, but not quite, super!Jim and I love him to death in this fic. This is also one of my all time favorites, ever in the history of the universe."[3]
"Ho-ly crap. This fic is amazing. Totally, completely, and utterly amazing. When I finished reading this fic, I ended up lying in bed and thinking: “Holyshitholyshit that was freaking awesome.” It is dark and angsty at many times, and although I’ll be the first to fight for the side of fluff, this definitely is one of my favorite fics of all time. This story is a brilliant character study of Kirk, first establishing who he is in “Discovering Atlas”, and then going on in the next three parts to slowly reveal all the different events that came together to make the incredible Captain James Tiberius Kirk. It is told primarily from Spock’s point of view, although at some points, it does dart off to another character’s perspective for a few paragraphs. This story spoke really personally to me, and it definitely moved me, very nearly to tears a few times. The comparison of Kirk to Atlas was heart-wrenching, but accurate, and just wow."[4]
"Because it’s epic and entertaining and a truly thrilling read that I was completely charmed by. It’s actually one of the first fics I read for the new movie. Just an outstanding job on the character of Kirk."[5]
