Title: A Beautiful(ly Illogical) Mind
Fandom: Star Trek Reboot
Word Count: 8233
Summary: Jim never takes up Pike’s dare to do better. Close-canon movie AU, with touches of Good Will Hunting.
Why You Should Read This: Love how Waldorph writes Kirk’s character and his dependence on Spock to be his guiding, logical light. Plus love rebel, bad boy Kirk and professor Spock – there needs to be more of this AU.
There is an entire series of this AU. It’s called Illogical (√π233/hy7). It contains 23 separate works and is almost 150,000 words. It is one of the best created back stories I’ve ever read in any fandom. You can find it here. Enjoy!
