Kirk/Spock Advent Calendar (or KS Advent) is a K/S slash challenge/calendar that runs through the month of December where fanart, fanfiction, poetry, vids, and other fanworks are released each day. The last one was held in December 2017, but the event was relaunched in 2022.

It was originally founded by kira-nerys at Lady Kardasi Productions in 2002 as part of a larger slash advent calendar which included other Star Trek series as well as Harry Potter, Smallville, Buffy and others.[1]

Then in 2006, Farfalla, continued the tradition as it developed into its own advent calendar outside of the 2002 Slash Advent Calendar. In 2008, Dale stepped in to run the calendar on her Yahoo!Groups[2] with acidqueen and Lyra helping out.[3]

From 2009, following the release of the Star Trek reboot movies and thousands of new fans joining the Kirk/Spock Livejournal community, until 2017, Arminaa and Amanda Warrington ran the calendar on LJ, though it was open to all, regardless if they had a LJ account.[4]

For 2022, the Kirk/Spock Advent Calendar was relaunched by the mods who are also behind Kirk/Spock Spring Fever: T'Lara, 1lostone, and pkrosche. The event is now hosted on AO3 and runs throughout the full month of December.

  • There was, however, a Kirk/Spock Advent Calendar which can be found archived here.
