Title: Almost Lovers
Author: positronic
Canon: Star Trek TNG
Pairing: William Riker/Worf
Rating: Teen [PG]
Word Count: 8,880
Summary: “I have a request for you, commander,” Worf said, then looked up, meeting Riker’s eyes. He was staring at Worf curiously, and Worf could practically hear the gears turning in his head. “I wanted to ask if you would be willing to… feign a relationship with me while my parents are visiting, to help me make this easier for them.” The moment those words left his mouth, Riker’s face broke out into a grin, and he started laughing, head thrown back against the couch.

Recommendation: I’d never considered this pairing, but after this story, I have no idea why not. I LOVE this Worf! He is so awkward and shy and just wonderful. And while Riker could have really come off as smarmy, I feel like he came off as genuinely supportive and understanding. Too, too cute.
