Without Guilt is a Kirk/Spock story by K.S.T'Lan.

It was published in the print zine T'hy'la #4.


"Spock's thoughts on same-sex relationships, and who he'd like to have one with, are brought to the surface when he and Kirk must buy back members of the crew captured as held as pleasure slaves."

Reactions and Reviews

The situation that sparks Kirk and Spock's coming together is that Uhura, Sulu and Chekov had been captured and were being sold as pleasure slaves; and Kirk and Spock have to go and buy them.

Now, Spock is an innocent, and this is used to nice effect so far as being the focal point that makes non-event scenes come alive.

I love, early on, that Kirk has an outburst of frustration at Spock regarding Spock's ignorance about male prostitutes. Of course, this leads to an apology and a close, quiet talk, where it comes out that Kirk has always been trying to protect Spock from matters sexual amongst the other crew, etc.

Later, Kirk and Spock are talking to McCoy about the three crewmembers being traumatized by their experience; and Spock is learning about things such as, for instance, drugs that would make them want to be used; and he really wants to understand. The charming thing about this scene is Spock worrying how his captain might view his avid interest in the subject.

The story is written, rf I recall correctly, entirely in Spock's POV beautifully written Spock feelings and thoughts. He ponders homosexuality, and being coerced, and letting go of control, being ravished...and finds it all most arousing.

A lovely dream of Spock in chains, captured by the actually-good and extremely horny human captain. Kirk is gorgeously seductive; Spock afraid and innocent, until Kirk awakens the need in him. And upon this dream follows some realistic realizations of Spock's tie knows he must not expect Kirk to be the one to make the first move and take control; he must do so himself.

So this wonderful talk happens that evening (I'm glad the author didn't think she had to distract them with some formulaic jeopardy or whatever). Sweet talk; sweet sex. Most enjoyable story. [1]
