Author's Summary:
"Set first season -- Trip and T'Pol try to find some common ground."

Review:
A chance encounter late at night makes Trip and T'Pol realized that they are not as different as they expected.

Though Vulcan is one of the most well known (if not the most well known) species in the "Star Trek" universe, in both canon and fanom Vulcans tend to be portrayed as a somewhat monolithic, highly-cultured people. Artaxastra breaks this image and give us a glimpse of a rich, varied Vulcan whose regional cultural differences affect the way its inhabitants act and are perceived. Through Trip and T'Pol's conversation - which seamlessly moves from regional cuisines to the different interpretations of Surakian teachings - we get to better understand not only the characters, but also their cultures and backgrounds. Though some of the information shared by T'Pol has been disproved in later seasons of Enterprise, this still remains a highly interesting and very well written fic.

Mockingbird by Credential (PG)

Title: Mockingbird.
Music Used: Mockingbird by Low Millions.
Fandom: Star Trek: Enterprise.
Pairing: Trip/T’Pol.
Warnings: None.

Vidder on Youtube: JL246

I’d never heard this song before watching the video, but it turned to be a perfect choice for Trip/T’Pol, as the vidder has shown by matching the song lyrics perfectly with scenes of the series. It really shows the somewhat volatile nature of their relationship, focusing in particular on T’Pol’s indecision about what to do regarding her feelings for Trip.

Title: The Thin Man Beams Aboard.
Fandom: Star Trek: Enterprise.
Pairing: Trip/T’Pol.
Categories: Mystery, Romance.
Length: Long.
Warnings: Established relationship, death of an original character before the fic begins, major spoilers for the novel/movie “The Thin Man”.

Review: 
The Enterprise receives a garbled transmission from a mining station, a joint Human/Andorian/Vulcan project. Once they arrive to investigate, they find one that one of the crew members has died in a suspicious accident and that a possible saboteur lurks about.

Written in the best “whodunit” tradition, the fic captures you from the start: was the crewmember’s death really an accident? Is there a saboteur on the station? Is it only one person behind the strange happenings or are there people working together? While the reader does not have access to all the clues to figure it out by his or herself, it’s fascinating to watch the characters piece everything together.

One of the other things I really enjoyed about this story is that it does not sacrifice character interaction and development for the sake of the plot. Set between “Bound” and “Demons”, it shows us a possible side of Trip and T’Pol’s relationship that was barely explored on the show: they finally recognize their bond and their feelings for each other and try, slowly, too develop their relationship.

Striking a great balance between its well developed mystery plot and the lovely Trip/T'Pol interaction, “The Thin Man Beams Aboard” is a great Enterprise fic.

Cry Havoc by MissAnnThropic (NC-17)

Title: Cry Havoc.
Fandom: Star Trek: Enterprise.
Pairing: Charles “Trip” Tucker III/T’Pol.
Categories: Angst, Bonding, Romance.
Length: Epic.

Review:  
“Cry Havoc” shows what could have happened with Trip and T’Pol after they slept together in the episode “Harbinger”. The development of their relationship is intertwined with the conclusion of the Xindi mission and the reactions the people around them have to the fact that they are a couple.

What I enjoy most about it is that while we do see T’Pol initially try to push Trip away like she did in canon, we also see her motives: she knows further intimacy will only strengthen the bond that has been forming between them and is frighten by the possible emotional repercussions. This glimpse into her mind makes her a much more sympathetic character and the fact that Trip is willing to try to understand and work with her limitations is certainly a point in his favor. I’m not particularly fond of the epilogue (despite its “happily ever after” feeling), but it doesn’t detract me from enjoying the rest of the story.

Though “Cry Havoc” contains quite a few clichés of Human/Vulcan relationships (including the prerequisite Pon Farr scene), it’s a nice “what-if” story for Trip/T’Pol fans who were disappointed by the way their relationship was handled in canon.
