Connie Faddis Star Trek Fan Fic: The Third Wheel
Connie Faddis has graciously offered to allow us to post her fic online. For now, they will be available in PDF format download. If someone wants to convert her Star Trek fic to html and post them on a fic archive, I'd be happy to put you in contact with her.

Second up: The Third Wheel  published in the print fanzine Interphase.

Two reviews from Fanlore:

  • an excellent story, 'The Third Wheel' written from McCoy's point of view, which captures well the deep-down feeling between McCoy and Spock that we all expected was hidden there somewhere (1976)

  • It also follows Connie's pattern of both De Profundis and Mojave Crossing -- starting out good, and then somehow, magically, late in the story, something inside the story fuses and melts and transforms into something incredible and breathtaking and very different. And in the last conversation between Spock and McCoy it's no longer idfic but it's a pitch-perfect moment of connection, really sincere, meaningful, and just plain lovely. Like a plot twist, except it's not the plotline that gets twisted. An emotion growth-twist? A character-relationship-arc twist? I don't know, but the ending of The Third Wheel is the most heartwarming new thing I've read in some time (2014)
You can download the fic here.
