Story Notes:
Written for Dark Agenda's Remix challenge, to write seven stories featuring characters of color in Remixable fandoms. As I write this, I don't even know if I'm doing the Remix or not, but I've had two ficlets in my head for some time and this seems like a great time to get them out.

I have never been a K/S shipper, because I love the friendship between Kirk and Spock but imprinted on it when I was very young, so slashing them feels completely wrong to my inner nine-year-old. My inner nine-year-old, however, is perfectly okay with S/U. And also might be fine with Kirk/Spock Prime in the AOS universe. This fic is mean to T'Pau but gives her more understandable reasons for being a bitch than in TOS.

NB: for those who roll their eyes at the "tradition" Uhura cites, keep reading. Also, for those who understand that T'Pau's use of "thee" is language fail... I inherited it from Trek. She did that in Amok Time, too. I'm guessing the UT somehow renders Old High Vulcan in Quaker English. :-)
