'High Time is a Kirk/Spock story by Jenny Starr.

It was published in the print zine First Time #5.


"During a bachelor party Kirk is slipped a drug that erases inhibitions."

Reactions and Reviews

This is a lighthearted romp of a story that always makes me smile. The plot revolves around a drug called Speed-O-Lite which releases subconscious desires, removes all inhibitions and rapidly provides a remarkable high, all without any aftereffects the next day.

During a party, someone has put the drug into the drinks of some of the crewmembers on the Enterprise, and it is rapidly affecting the crew. The first Spock knows of this is when McCoy calls to tell him all hell is breaking loose in the rec room, and urges him to come and remove Kirk from the party and keep him out of the crew’s sight until the drug wears off in the morning. Spock obligingly takes Kirk back to his quarters, and finds to his shock that his captain starts trying to seduce him! However, there were signs before they got there of the affect the drug was having on Kirk: “As Kirk walked beside him, he ran his sultry gaze appreciatively up and down his companion’s slim frame, making Spock feel rather illogically as though he were being undressed by invisible hands. ‘Have I ever told you what a beautiful profile you have, Commander?’ ‘Certainly not, Captain.’ ” Once inside Kirk’s cabin, Kirk steps up his seduction: “A shameful oversight, my beautiful Vulcan”, he tells Spock, after kissing his fingers. Spock valiantly attempts to resist, but his defenses crumble as Kirk continues his pursuit, and he succumbs to his own fantasy of being seduced by Kirk. (There’s no explicit sex, just a fade to black scene, but this story doesn’t really need it.) The morning after scene is hilarious, but loving, as Kirk wakes from what he thinks was a wonderful dream and finds Spock lying naked next to him in bed! His reaction is priceless—Jenny sure had a way with words! (See The Best of the Best of K/S for the excerpt I nominated for best humorous morning after scene.) McCoy calls Kirk the next morning to check on him, and I love his parting comments: “Spock, that you? Good, glad to see you followed orders and kept Jim out of trouble last night. By the way, I’d be curious to hear what kind of fantasy our sexy, young captain conjured up while he was high.” There was a significant pause. “Just in case anybody’s talking.”

I sure wish Jenny still wrote K/S. She wrote some wonderfully humorous K/S stories, and this is one of my favorites. [1]
