An utterly beautiful joining of minds and bodies to end this tale, to give a sense to all the suffering and pain, to death itself. Sacrifice was needed in order for life to reign, the grief and emptiness prepare for the return of the light.
I like the symbolism of the rings, now that I think of it. Red as human blood, green as vulcan blood and the white light of the diamond...
A wonderful story, touching in an almost uncanny way. You greatly dared and succeeded admirably.
Thanks once again, angelocustode. I am glad you liked the rings.

So intense and so sad this chapter! It is very difficult to write a scene like the final one of this chapter without slipping in melodrama. You did a great, great job at it. Speaking about love and death and sacrifice, about fear and about hope that goes beyond this life...and no bitterness in it, but only so much suffering and so much deep love.
Thanks for your comments, once again angelocustode. This story remains close to my heart.

Okay, the chapter was phenomenal but what really blew my mind was the last statement. That brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for a great story and I will be waiting patiently for more from you! What a success!
Hi Forgotten One, thankyou again for your review! I learnt alot writing this story, and am working on the next in the series (not as long as this one, but a prelude to the next part which will be the longest yet). You're very sweet!

Wow what a fantastic roller coaster ride this story has been. Really enjoyed all the way through and very much liked the imagery of the last chapter. A well crafted tale.
Thankyou, bedwench, for stopping to review, for your kind words, and for sticking with the tale from beginning to end. :-)

Hurry with the next chapter! I have to know what happens! Surely Jim comes back... keeping in mind that "three days" mentioned... death can't separate him from Spock for long. There's a bonding and an approaching pon farr to handle.
*Laughs* Indeed, SoldierGirl. That obvious? I'm chipping away at the next chapter... Time's been a bit scarce, but I'll do what I can, as soon as I can! Thanks for stopping to leave a review!

Nice cave. I think tinyMCE has a little key for "insert/edit link". Basically, if you select text you can click on the chainlink icon and, when prompted, paste the hyperlink.
Or you can select the "HTML" icon to edit html. Then find where you want to put the link and wrap the link text with the .a href="". but use the pointy brackets instead of dots.
Thanks for this, Hypatia. I'll give it a stab when I'm next in the editing pane.

Star Trek meets Elfquest in Lord of the Rings, kinda.
Yeah, well. They're good tropes and they work! And why not? ;) Quoth the Tolkien fanatic... I am tempted to use two phrases in the next Part: some reference to the "far green land under a swift sunrise" and "a green hill far away"... Is that giving too much away?

This chapter was fantastic -- really enjoying this!
Thankyou murt! Glad you're enjoying it. I'm having a ball writing it.
I've just posted the fourth part... And hope to have the fifth and final part up sometime tonight.

I have eaten this story up like the best brownie ever and I want more! The level of detail, the consistancy and the dedication are phenomenal. My heart is breaking for Kirk and Spock and the crew and I'm hoping there's a happy outcome to this. Great job! Wish I could give you a higher rating than a 10!
Awwww! You're too kind, ForgottenOne... I am blushing. Seriously though, your review TOTALLY made my day.
I've just posted the fourth part... not the happy ending you're hoping for. Yet. But stay tuned!

I don't know if this would work, but you could turn off tinyMCE and use line breaks in html. You would have to use html then for any other formatting in that portion.
Surprisingly finding myself drawn in by this story. I want to know more. Even though acquiescing so quickly doesn't quite seem like Kirk.
Hi Hypatia, thanks for your review. I will try your suggestion.
I've just posted the third part, which might serve to answer your ponderings... ;)

Mmh a very unusual tale almost mythological. I await the next instalment with interest
Thanks Soral, for your comments, and for reading and reviewing. There are all sorts of tropes and themes I am playing with... can't wait to have time to write the next part!
