This is a thematic list (i.e. not recs) for stories about Ancient/Non-Reform Vulcan, i.e. stories featuring a Vulcan society without their emotional control. This can be either real Vulcan in the past at any point before Surak's Reforms (whether set then, or with time travel from the canon time period), some kind of alternate universe in which Vulcan devolped differently (mirror universes, parallel universes etc.) or a society of Vulcanoid people who are living on another planet (e.g. were seeded by the Preservers or a faction of Vulcans who colonized the planet in the past, with the exception of the Romulans, who are not counted for this trope). Not included are stories that focus on individual Vulcans loosing emotional control, or just feature some tradition or rituals that date back to ancient Vulcan.
These are not recs, but a thematic list. I'll link gen stories as well as all kinds of pairings. Also, while I label for pairings and include the author's summary, I don't list detailed warnings, and due to the nature of this theme stories frequently may feature violence, slavery, dub-con, and non-con among other things, so readers following links should take care and check out the full story headers. It is split in TOS and Reboot for now, but if anyone has TNG, DS9, VOY or ENT stories featuring this, I'd add those as well.
If you want a story added, your own or others, please send me the title, author, pairings (if any), summary, a public link (i.e. no f-locked or community member locked LJ entries and the like), and whether it's a WIP or finished.
