Wonderful glimpse of how Tarsus could have shaped Kirk's beliefs. Left me with a warm, fuzzy feeling in the end. Thanks so much for sharing.
I always wished we'd gotten a bit more on Tarsus in TOS. sigh, maybe now in Reboot? Thank you for your review. warm and fuzzy is a good thing.

Awww! You know, as much as I love "first time" fics, there's also a great deal to be said for fics where the boys are in an established relationship (by many years) and have that comfort with each other that only time can give. This was lovely - it certainly has me in a holiday mood! :D Lovely work.
Thank you! established relationship is easier to write, usually lacks the darkness and sometimes the passion too. I am glad you liked it!

I'm glad you did decide to participate, even though LJ is evil and that it was a good experience for you. Maybe you will think about doing the Valentine's day challenge, or even a Big bang...? *waggles eyebrows in a comical fashion*
oh, Ivy, the writing was such a great experience and I loved the story but I gotta say, the posting was so hideous, I really don't know if I can do it again. God love Amanda, she and Ashley are saints and geniuses.

Such a delight to read. I like the fact that you made Jim talk to Spock about how he feels. The subject of Tarsus, and God..his beliefs...Like you mentioned, he may not be a fan of Xmas, because of those dark memories, but by associating Spock with the holiday, it makes it worthwhile.
Like Pam said, you should write more scenes of them together...crackling hot...loved it very much...
blushes. i think it is the people who make any holiday or major life event important. So Jim and Spock can start their own traditions. So glad you liked it and thank you for your review.

This was sweet and lovely. The look back on Kirk's past and why he didn't care for the holidays was great, but the moment shared between him a Spock was perfect.
Yay! And thank you for convincing me to go through with this story. I loved my beta, it was a very positive experience. Thanks for reviewing!

This is most sweet . Love detail about holidays with different crew and what they share.
Someone, on this site or another, noted we don't really know how or even if the holidays are celebrated in the future. So, this was my take on it. And yes, I really need holographic reindeer on my roof! Thank you for reviewing!

Aww - that's so sweet. I was talking with a friend yesterday about how much we prefer TOS over Reboot and that here are so few new TOS stories and along comes this little gem. A perfect start to a lazy advent sunday,
I am curious why you prefer TOS to Reboot (I know my reasons) but if I were to guess, TOS has years of stories, subtle characterizations by the actors, and fanfiction on top of it. TOS is simply easier to write! My opinion (sighs). I wonder with the new movie how that will all work out. Nevertheless, thank you so much for reviewing and I wish you a happy Sunday!
