Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

I recommend almost anything from Samanthat Quinn (although if you're a big fan of Archer, she rarely shows him in a positive light, so please proceed with causion)

"Unfulfilled" is my favorite.

Is it possible to show Archer in a positive light?

Anyone who could do it convincingly, would be instantly considered a god among men (or a goddess among women).

Also, I too recommend Embers of the Fire by Gibraltar.

Some of us actually do try...even if it is amazingly difficult.

I'll add my voice for Cry Havoc by MissAnnThropic. Yeah, it's a ship fic for Tucker & T'Pol but it's a whole lot more than just that. She works in battles and butt kicking and a more realistic Terran response to the Xindi attack...

I can recommend Immune Link to story

This was started as my perfect episode of Enterprise, but it grewed! The crew fall into an illness to which only Trip is immune, he has to get Enterprise to safety on his own. In a b-plot Trip has passed his exams to become a full Commander. Only he hasn't told Captain Archer.
It was chosen as favourite story by a few at House of Tucker and it's a good read.

It's a PG13 fic which mostly deals with Trip, but shows Archer in a good light.

I have a beef with this in general. I think it's good writing for the author to like all the characters. Otherwise it's propaganda. To give the readers a hint, the next series of this fic has Tucker having sex with T'Pol two feet away from Archer. And although I may like Archer, I would feel the same way about Tucker.

The writer should understand all the characters. I want it from my Star Trek writers, I want it from the fan fic ones as well.

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

Heres another vote for Rat Boy's Yorktown stories. I just read the first story "Preserve, Protect & Defend" last week, and I was blown away by the quality. The plot, characters & action are all written exceptionally.

The second story "The Road to Hell", has been just as good so far. Definitely a series to check out. :thumbsup:

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

Here's a vote for Admiral2's excellent tale, The God Machine. It's set in an alternate-Trek Pike-era universe, similar to (but not identical) the one we know. All the familiar races are here, but Starfleet's a leaner, meaner, more military organization.

Anyhow, great stuff, and I highly recommend folks give it a read. There's a link to it on Admiral2's post here on the fanfic page.

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

Has anyone even tried to read Immune? I cannot understand the idea of asking for recommendations if you are going to ignore the replies.

Yes, thanks, I did access the link to Immune and read it. Indeed, I try to read as much of the recommended fic as possible, especially when the lnks are provided.
An interesting story, although I confess that ENT fanfic isn't my cup of tea.

I'll recommend this Anna as well. Samantha Quinn is an excellent writer with really well written stories.

Towerwatcher, I agree Immune was a wonderful well written story that had me in tears towards the end. I refused to put it down until I had finished the story, despite it taking all of 3 hrs to do so. Well worth a read.

Really, I just find this statement odd considering how out of character you have written T'Pol and Tucker in some of your stories.

Personally I think everyone is going to have some kind of bias in their stories. It only really bothers me when they take it to the extreme. At least Samantha Quinn kept her writing of Archer in characterisation of how he was shown in S1 and S2.

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

I'd like to recommend Rigil Kent's series of Enterprise stories. While Trip and T'Pol are together, the stories are not solely about them. The stories deal with the start of the Romulan War. And there are a whole slew of new characters besides the crew we know.

Re: TBBS Fanfic Recommendations

Just a word about Samantha Quinn's stories mentioned above.

One thing to keep in mind is that they are AU so the situations the characters find themselves in end up changing them from the characters they were on the show. That has to be taken into account. I do understand that there are those who dislike AU, so maybe this type of story may not be for all.

The other thing is that the perception of the characters is largely dependant on the POV of the character that the sections are written in. If the section is written from the POV of a character that dislikes Archer for example, (since he came up), then you have to take into account that the opinions of Archer are from that character's POV and consistent for that character.
