As much as this story makes me unbearably sad, I do adore it. I normally shy away from things too relatable to real life, because it can be painful. This is sad, true. But the emotions are real. You're a very skilled writer, and, as much as it pains me to *read* Spock dying, I can't wait to see another update. =]

Just had to, didn't you....
See, I twigged to this many chapters ago... you were being too coy about Spock, o evil one. I stopped reading this and then just happened across it this morning and was tempted to read the last chapter. I can resist anything but temptation, and it serves me right.

I actually did not see that coming and usually I always see something like that before it happens. It feels like a kick in the gut. Shows how good a writer you are.
I am going to keep reading this story but I just know it is going to break my heart into tiny pieces.

Uh-oh, that rasping in Spock's lungs does not augur well, imho. I have the terrible suspicion, that my greatest fear concerning this fic will come true. You want to kill off Spock?? Oh my, a tiny part in my mind - called hope - still whispers, maybe it's only a red herring after all .... Anyway, well written as always and you keep me on the edge of my seat!

Spock? You're going to kill off Spock? Why, what'd he ever do to you?? and how is he going to "rage, rage?" Although, he is doing a good job of "being gay".
Sigh. This is marvellous. I'm hooked on this story. It's something about Jim's POV that has grabbed me, I don't know what. Great work!
Chapters thirteen and fourteen reveal all. But. Considering the quoted poem is an outsider demanding someone to rage against the dying of the light, not the actual dying person raging, nobody has to rage except those who *won't* die. (Also, LOL. I have done much, much worse than bump off characters.)

This chapter absolutely broke my heart. I can't imagine anything worse than having to watch your mother like that. The singer in my band had brain cancer twice before the age of sixteen (thankfully operable and leaving her with full mental functionality after the surgeries both times) I can't even think about what I'd do if it relapsed and she was like this. I can't even imagine what Jim's going through, I lost my mother in October, but it was a car accident. I can't even imagine having to watch her die slowly like that.
On a lighter note: I love the end of the chapter hardcore, and the bit about him lighting e gym on fire made me think of Buffy, which made me imagine Jim fighting vampires in a miniskirt, which was hilarious.
I absolutely love this fix.
