Common Tropes in Fanworks

  • Episode Tags: continuation, or missing scenes, from episodes that contained Sulu and Chekov
  • On the Bridge: them being responsible for the Enterprise when Kirk, Spock and McCoy go on away missions
  • Mirror Universe: exploring their darker doppelgangers from the Mirror Universe, since their characters are heterosexual in the primary universe it would make sense that their mirror counterparts are gay
  • Uhura: is often included in Sulu/Chekov fics, rarely in a poly arrangement, but more often as a special friend to the pairing. One example: I Never.
  • Side Pairing: sometimes a featured secondary pairing in stories focused on other pairings, most commonly Kirk/Spock
