Grossly Undeserved - by summerofspock
Just as the clock hit 8:20 and the more irritated cadets had put away their materials, the door to the classroom whooshed open and the most unkempt man Spock had ever seen stumbled in.

Despite his black professor’s uniform, Spock could not find it in himself to believe this was the highly lauded Professor Kirk, hair a golden mess plastered over his forehead with a lankness that indicated it had not been washed for some time. His wire-rimmed glasses were askew and he somehow gave the appearance of tripping despite moving in a straight line to the desk, coffee cup in hand, each step dribbling the brown liquid over his hand. The man hissed with each drop.

“Sorry, sorry,” the man said, putting his cup down on the desk into a puddle of coffee that had already formed beneath it as he swung his shoulder bag onto the ground and sighed, wiping his hand down his half-zipped uniform absentmindedly.

The room was eerily silent as the man wheeled the squeaking chair out from behind the desk and sat down heavily, in a manner akin to a newborn foal, legs giving out beneath him, splaying in two directions at once. Spock found himself unable to look away.

“Introductions,” the man said. “I’ll start. I’m Jim Kirk and yep, the rumors are true, I’m 26. I prefer Kirk or Jim. Please don’t call me professor. It gives me the heebie jeebies.”

The Eleventh Hour - by Ophelia_j
Spock straightened, his gaze travelling around the room. That sea of eager, responsive, sympathetic faces. He said clearly, ‘Your earlier statement, Captain, was technically untrue.’

Kirk smiled easily at him, then back at the hall. ‘Okay Spock, I’ll bite: where did I go wrong?’

To the hall, he added, ‘The only disadvantage of a Vulcan first officer: not indulging your love of hyperbole or fallible memory.’

This brought a ripple of laughter. Spock waited for it to die down before he said clearly, ‘You did sleep with a member of the crew under your direct command on our first five-year mission.’

There was an audible intake of breath, followed by a stunned, anticipatory silence through the room as Kirk turned to stare at him.

Through their bond, Spock heard, as clearly as if it were spoken, Spock, what the hell?

Spock kept his face a careful study in total neutrality. Even Kirk, a long-term student of all Spock’s subtlest expressions, was getting nothing.

You slept with me ten point five hours before the Enterprise docked. Eleven before we were officially relieved of duty.

Eleven hours? You're disputing with me for eleven hours?

Not disputing T'hy’la, merely clarifying. And now Jim felt, beneath the bare words, and Spock’s carefully neutral expression, the depth of affection. And love. And over all, a thread of amusement at Jim’s utterly dumbfounded expression.

Oh god. We’re really doing this? You’re outing us as a couple? Here? Now?

I have merely corrected your erroneous statement.

Wow. You – You really pick your moments.

Platonic - by WerewolvesAreReal
The captain fiddles with a chess-piece. “Spock. What are your plans? And I'm not talking about your teaching job on Earth. Do you ever think about returning to Vulcan?”

It's an odd line of inquiry. “Eventually, I must,” Spock concedes.

“Because of the pon farr,” says Jim.

Spock flinches. He can't help it, and he feels unduly affronted that Jim should even utter the phrase. Jim presses his lips together. “Sorry,” he says, before Spock can say a word. “I know it's not something you want to talk about. But I think we need to.”

Spock curbs his initial reply. Jim once beamed down to the sands of Vulcan and nearly died at the place of Koon-ut-Kal-if-fee. If there is anyone who deserves to question Spock on the subject, it is this man.

Yet he cannot bring himself to invite inquiry. He waits, instead, for Jim's question.

It takes awhile. Jim pauses to sip his whiskey, grimacing through the taste. He stares into the glass as though it might rise up and answer his questions for him. Then, without looking at Spock, he asks: “On Vulcan, can men bond with other men?”

It is not a question Spock expects.

“Yes,” he says.

Jim takes another drink.

They sit there, waiting. Jim doesn't look him in the eye. But at last he takes a deep breath, as though steeling himself. “Spock,” he says. “How do Vulcans pick their partners?”

Opinion | Why Harvard Was Wrong to Make Me Step Down
June 24, 2019 | The New York Times | By Ronald S. Sullivan Jr., Mr. Sullivan is a law professor at Harvard Law School.

In May, Harvard College announced that it would not renew the appointment of me and my wife, Stephanie Robinson, as faculty deans of Winthrop House, one of Harvard’s undergraduate residential houses, because I am one of the lawyers who represented the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein in advance of his coming sexual assault trial. The administration’s decision followed reports by some students that they felt “unsafe” in an institution led by a lawyer who would take on Mr. Weinstein as a client.

I am willing to believe that some students felt unsafe. But feelings alone should not drive university policy. Administrators must help students distinguish between feelings that have a rational basis and those that do not. In my case, Harvard missed an opportunity to help students do that......I would hope that any student who felt unsafe as a result of my representation of Mr. Weinstein might, after a reasoned discussion of the relevant facts, question whether his or her feelings were warranted. But Harvard was not interested in having that discussion. Nor was Harvard interested in facilitating conversations about the appropriate role of its faculty in addressing sexual violence and the tension between protecting the rights of the criminally accused and treating survivors of sexual violence with respect.

Instead, the administration capitulated to protesters. Given that universities are supposed to be places of considered and civil discourse, where people are forced to wrestle with difficult, controversial and unfamiliar ideas, this is disappointing......reasoned discourse lost out to raw feelings......I am not opposed to student protest. Many important social justice movements began with student protests, including movements from which I, as an African-American, have benefited. Had it not been for students who staged sit-ins at lunch counters, I would not have had the opportunity to be trained at Harvard Law School.

But I am profoundly troubled by the reaction of university administrators who are in charge of student growth and development. The job of a teacher is to help students think through what constitutes a reasonable argument. It is a dereliction of duty for administrators to allow themselves to be bullied into ..Unchecked emotion has replaced thoughtful reasoning on campus. Feelings are no longer subjected to evidence, analysis or empirical defense. Angry demands, rather than rigorous arguments, now appear to guide university policy.

Lessons in Humility - playout - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
After the dissolution of his marriage and a good bit of soul-searching, Harry returns to Hogwarts as the new Defense teacher. Go figure, it happens to be the same year Draco takes over the role of Potions Master. Neither man is happy about this turn of events. Will they be able to set aside their differences and learn a thing or two about trust and humility on the way? (Spoiler Alert: Yes. Very much so.)

Shibboleths - zeitgeistic (faire_weather) - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Muggle Immersion co-Professor Harry Potter spends his days hanging with his son, reading to his "dog," teaching magical kids about the internet with his cousin Dudley, and irritating Snape’s portrait. He’s understandably annoyed when his cosy life is interrupted by the Headmistress hiring on Draco Malfoy to be Hogwarts’ new Ancient Magical Cultures and Spellcasting professor. But then the explosion happens, and it turns out they'll all need Malfoy's knowledge if they want the magical world to survive.

Boom Clap (The Sound of My Heart) - Femme (femmequixotic), noeon (noe) - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Post-war Hogwarts has been energized by its new teaching fellows program. Where once bitter enmity divided the wizarding community, Malfoy and Potter chummily patrol hallways together whilst Granger and Zabini seek lost parts of the castle at McGonagall’s behest and Chang supervises Quidditch when not lecturing in Charms. It’s a veritable wizarding utopia and life is predictable for the first time in years. Which is, of course, when everything blows apart as the result of a drunken dare and Malfoy’s life is ruined beyond his capacity to repair it. Ever. In a million years.

Would You Be Mine, Could You Be Mine - by lady_ragnell
Merlin does not want to invite the Prime Minister's son onto his show, even if he is an environmental scientist. Arthur does not want to admit that he has a crush on the star of Merlin's Castle, the most popular children's show in the nation.

In which Merlin is Mr. Rogers, there is a bouquet of finger puppets, Freya and Gwaine hooked up years ago and neither of them wants to talk about it, and eventually everything turns out okay.
