I read a story -- I'm not sure if it was on AO3, the K/S Archive, or FanFiction -- where Mirror Spock journeys to the regular Enterprise. At the end of the story, regular Spock and Mirror Spock have an argument, where Mirror Spock is explaining why ruling through fear works better, and regular Spock is explaining why a civilized service where the crew has rights works better.  I remember that Mirror Spock made his argument first, and regular Kirk was afraid that regular Spock would find it hard to counter.  But regular Spock DOES counter it, and he manages to be himself while skewering Mirror Spock's arguments with devastating accuracy, making it clear that civilization is far superior to tyranny.  Kirk is sorry that he didn't have more faith in regular Spock's ability to stand up for himself and his ideals.

I'd especially love to read this defense of civilized behavior again in the wake of the American election, but I don't remember anything useful, like the title or the author or any characteristic lines.  Please tell me that it rings a bell for someone!

This is probably TOS, but I do occasionally read reboot.  I don't remember whether this was K/S or K-S friendship.


Edited to add:  I found it by pawing through my AO3 history; thanks to [livejournal.com profile] vicki_rae for mentioning this possibility!

The story is "Through the Looking Glass," by LadyRa.

I'm looking for a WIP that was posted on strek-id-kink (I think). It was an au where Vulcans keep rescuing humans and keep them not so much as slave, but like beloved pets? The humans are confused and don't know what to make of this and tend to fight back (at least at first). Jim had had a hard time of it and when caught he ends up submitting because he thinks it's the only way he can get them to help Pike who was hurt.

There is a language barrier issue because Vulcan's don't speak English, Jim can't speak Vulcan, but Jim is thought to be clever because he does try.

There were lots of parts and even though I know it wasn't finished the last time I looked at it I think it had over 30 part, most likely more. I thought I had saved them, but can't find them and have rebuilt my computer since. Also it looks like the kink meme I found it was purged so while I find what look like links to it I can't actually find a page with it and I have no idea who actually posted it.

If someone knows where it might be archived or could point me in the right direction that would be great.
