Poor Jim, and poor Spock if I'm honest! This will be such a huge heartbreaking hyrdle to overcome for the both of them. What I don't get though is why Amanda did not get Jim into therapy ASAP once he came to live with them? Either way, I cannot wait to read more of this fic! ;o)

I just really love angsty stories and this one really hit the spot. Jim's desire to keep distance between him and Spock seems realistic and it never got reptitive.
I also like that we never saw Frank until the last moment when the shit hit the fan, it just made it more dramatic. Also, Amanda breaking his nose was the highlight- it was one of those moments of surprise-but-not; infact I loved Amanda through out the whole story!
My only concern is for the fate of Jim's jacket and book! Maybe it's covered in the next installment?
Great read, thanks for posting!!!

I just found the second part to your other story "Looking for Shooting Stars" and I see you only have just 2 chapters and I am anxious to see where the story goes from here. I do hope that you will be posting again soon. I was also wondering if you were going to have Winona meet up with Jim, Spock and his new family. I would dearly love to see how that would turn out or if Winona finally found any remorse for the way she has treated Jim. Well I will have to wait and see how you take this story so hopefully we will see an update sooner then before.

Oh poor Jim! Love a dark, angsty ride. This has promise although I will say straight up, what continues to detract from the quality of this story is the severe over-use of profanity in the narrative as well as Jim's constant refering to the man he loves as a "Vulcan bastard". Shrugs...write what you want, but I'll probaby just end up skimming the story after its done cause I hate to see a writer sabatoging thier own story that way.

I'm SO SO SO happy that you're still working on this story!! I was glued to "Looking For Shooting Stars" and this one so far is shaping up to be even better! So if you ever think about quitting this story - please remember that there is at least one person who is holding their breath for every update!!!

Dude you totally have to keep writing this!
I saw your note about not knowing how to end it and resolve things because they're still unresolved in your own life. Firstly, you are brave to confront and process these things. Go girl! Secondly, I know I use writing fiction to work things out and to experiment with stuff I might never be game enough to try in real life... or to convince myself that yes, dammit, I can do it. I wonder whether writing this story might function that way for you? And lastly, be assured that you don't have to have everything sorted *bingo* like that. If there's anything i've learned from my own years in therapy, it's that serious shit from childhood is something I resolve, and then resolve again and then resolve again... hopefully getting stronger each time. The point is, it's a process. And a process that is greatly aided by the staunch support of friends who remind me that no matter what I am a good and worthwhile person, even if I don'talways believe or am able to see it.
So - whatever you need to do, you can do it. And if you ever ask yourself the questions I do (or presumably Jim does) then hold onto the fact that in writing what you do you help others - and that, my friend, is a concrete an undeniable evidence of your intrinsic worth and value.
I'm looking forward to seeing what journeys you take our boys on...

I was not going to read this . but after finishing shooting stars of course I had to. It's a strong start to the story and I loved it. Especially the bits where I can see how their relationship has progressed (and where it hasn't...;-) ). Also liked the bit with Pike. The writing in itself is great, possible better than shooting stars. I can't believe I'm getting into a work-in-progress... Hope I don't get disappointed. I'll promise I'll review if you update. And, btw, I'm okay with the lighter tone but I'm also the last one to mind if you decide to lay the angst on thick. Thank you for writing this!

Hi Miss Meh, I just finished your story - loved it so much and was so deeply touched that I decided to register on the site so I could give you a review. The emotional content of the story has the ring of truth to it. Thank you for sharing with us what is in your heart! It is a beautiful and honest piece of writing. I loved your Jim and Spock and how each one of them has his own distinctive voice. I wish a Spock to everyone - love is the most important thing in the world!

Where is your epilogue?
Please set it in.
Um... I think the archive is having technical problems right now. When I first went to post it, the archive was completely down. I just edited the chapter, so hopefully, it will stick this time. :)

You're just breaking my heart. I feel so bad for Jim...and for Spock, too. Jim - I can't believe that he doesn't realize that he shouldn't have to live the way he is. I can't believe that he thinks it's just the way it is to be beaten almost every night as well as verbally abused and all the while not being fed. Such a horrible and sad situation. :( I know that Spock and Amanda are trying to make things better for Jim, but...they need to hurry.
Well, Jim and Spock need to go through all of the bad things in order to get to the good things. Everything will work out in the end, you'll see. :)
