Great little piece of fiction, dense and touching. I just about forgot to breathe and only filled my lungs again when I reached the end. This is truely masterly done!
I love ShirAmber's art too, very beautiful.
Thank you so much! (And I am sorry for not replying to your review earlier.)

I find this part of the movie so emotional...even more so the second time...Jim has to go through this with Sarek, and briefly see it on the computer play back screen.
You described the meld like if it actually existed...you were so visual that I could see Sarek and Jim, travelling down through the years, and most recent to all those memories that Jim and Spock experienced....and the shock, sadness...of realizing that he was gone..there was no katra to be found....no essence left...
Sarek truly didn't know his son, but he lived it trough that meld...
Later of course we find...there was hope at the end of that tunnel...
Beautiful chere amie....

Gah, love the art with this. and frankly, this story is so gut wrenching in a way. To feel in parts Sarek's regret at seeing his son fight his emotions so thoroughly. Like he's never really understood until the meld with Kirk. I loved it! So happy to see this here. :) <3
Dear Pam, first let me apologise for not replying to your lovely review earlier (and for not keeping in touch in general). Thank you very much for your lovely comment, and I will pass the praise of the artwork on to the artist.

I really don't know how to review this. It has left me lost for words. Wonderful. You have brought new insight to the scene, a scene which I have always loved anyway. Thank you.
Thank you, Fugitive, I'm happy that you like it. I love to take one canon scene and delve into its many levels and shades of meaning. Also, your kind review gives me the feeling that my decision to re-post a few of my works is something I need not regret.
