This fic was posted in the fall of 2015
Spock was not at all pleased by the attention his captain was getting from the females of Risa. And many of the males for that matter. They had been openly ogling Jim and some had even offered themselves for Jim’s pleasure.
“Perhaps rather than hovering here in the welcoming center we should make our way to our place of residence while we are here,” Spock said, leaning down slightly to speak into Jim’s ear. He was most satisfied when Jim shivered.
Jim turned slightly toward him. “I agree. I’m tired of them trying to get into your pants.”
Spock blinked. “My pants, Captain? I believe you are mistaken and they have been after you.”
Jim laughed. “You’re super cute, you know that? Whoever they were after, let’s go to our hotel.”
“What time are we to meet for the Thanksgiving celebration?” Spock asked as they left the welcome center and hailed transportation to their rain forest hotel.
“Everything is set for two. We have plenty of time to get settled in before we have to make our way to the restaurant hall where it’s been arranged.”
AN: This is the last guess the fic. Thanks for indulging me in this and the Throwback Thursdays which have also ended.
December marks the month that you will get my still unnamed Christmas story. In January, my updates will return to some normalcy. I may go back to only Flash Fiction Fridays or the MWF variety. I got a request to continue the guess the fic posts so those along with the throwbacks will return in January.

I’m sorry I fail so hard at this game. I love seeing snippets from past stories, and going to reread them when you reveal the answer. But man, you’re so good at picking parts that I only vaguely remember that I can’t remember enough to remember the fic!
I do love the game though. 🙂

As J indicate, it is The Moment You Know! 🙂

THE MOMENT YOU KNOW!!!! WOOHOO!!!
I mean, you don’t have many stories of Thanksgiving spent on Risa! (And I just downloaded it to read again later today.)
See, you just gotta continue these!
Anyway, I thought you were indulging ME. And I love the TBT fics too. I’d love those to continue too.

Yay!!! You got it. It is indeed The Moment You Know!
Yes it was most definitely you I am indulging with the return of Guess the Fic and Throw Back Thursdays in January
I also have named my December fic, Let Nothing You Dismay too. Clearly I failed to update this post to reflect that. My bad!
I’ve got 7 chapters written and scheduled already! Yipee

I was too slow today with my guess.
Once more, had fun looking through all your fics to find it.
I like guess the fic. Its fun 🙂

This snippet of this story made me smile. They each feel that people are not flirting with them. Jim’s little shiver is a perfect response to Spock whispering in his ear. I love guess the fiction and throwback Thursdays, even though I have like zero chance of guessing the fiction. I’m hopeless with guessing, but I enjoy seeing these stories. It reminds me of ones I’ve loved and prompts me to revisit them.
Although this month I may have bitten off more than I can chew and can’t read a lot of longer stories. I signed up for a defensive driving class, to lower my car insurance, that I need to finish within 30 days of the start of the class. I’m taking an online watercolor class. And I signed up for an alternative healthcare strategies class on dealing with stress. Don’t have a lot of free time outside of work to do all of this. Not sure what I was thinking of when I added the driving class which I think has put me over the edge. Lol! Need to read your one-shots to get my
Spirk fix! Lol!

I definitely hear you on biting off more than you can chew. I’m writing Let Nothing You Dismay for here and Sleigh Bells for AO3. Working full time. Making a cheesecake tomorrow. Decorating my house this weekend. I had to go to the store three times today (and if I don’t get the Covid I will be eternally grateful to God) and decorating my sister’s house the next weekend. I think my head is about to explode ha ha ha
But yes I loved The Moment You Know. Was fun to write five years ago now.
