So we'll see more of Surik? Does Jim feel any of this or is he only aware of what filters through his bond with Spock?
When I write the sequel, yes, Surik will figure prominently. It's a long time since I wrote the story so I can't give a specific answer to your question - I'd have to go back and re-read it myself!

I really loved this story. Surik was a lovely charecter and I grew extremely fon of him. He also made an excellent match-maker. :)
thanks so much!
You are welcome! thanks for stopping by to say as much!

I love this chapter, the revisioning of their relationship and the awareness that comes with a honest look at the moment in the warp core. That scene has fascinated and haunted me, I even felt called to write it, but I don't have to, because you wrote it so well, it is perfact!
Thank you, angelocustode!

Oops--had to come back and ask--wre you referring to Michelangelo's David? He never had a fig leaf--except the detachable one in the Victoria and Albert. XD
In my mind I just changed it around to an "as if" he had ever had a fig leaf, and then oc there's poetic license, so it prolly doesn't matter. And I do *not* want to niggle--but your story is so perfect (and the David totally resenbles the current Spock,imho)...
Thank you again for a wonderful tale.
Hi again oyboh.
Now you mention it, yes of course I was thinking of Michelangelo's David - and yes, I was aware about the fig leaf added for prudish Victorian eyes...
Let's just say the lust-fuelled James Kirk wasn't thinking about the fig leaf so much as what was underneath it... I would be surprised if he hadn't seen the statue and didn't know about the fig leaf... ;) The point anyway, was to remove any fig leaves at that point, wasn't it? :P :P

You did fantastic, I am so happy to have read this. You rewrote Amok Time! Beautiful. I look forward to the day there is a sequel and until then I will read this over and over. Yay!
AWww! You're so sweet, ForgottenOne. Yeah, I spose in an Abramsverse where our two boys are already mated, someone's got to have a sexual crisis, haven't they? :P The sequel may be a little time coming; I've got a couple of other fics I want to get done...
But it will come. :)

Wooooo! Very most excellent..ahem. 10 star chapter!
Just...please don't do an Old Yeller on me, wouldja? After that and Bambi and Black Beauty I started avoiding animal (and kid!) films...
Course you gotta do what you gotta do, so I guess I'll thank you again and anyway for a magnificent tale, in advance.
Hi oyboh, as you'll see, I couldn't kill our protagonist! He's far too interesting... ;)
Hope you enjoy the last chapter. And you are most welcome!

I will admit that I have been reading this every time you update, but it is usually as I am shoving breakfast down my throat before scurrying off to work, and I always forget to sign in and review - but I told myself I would do that today! SO!
This is adorable!!! Love Surik the little schemer, and that he teams up with Bones is just precious. Bones as a cat sitter is such a fun image to go to work imagining - keeps a smile on my face, even on rough days. And Jim & Spock's soft-warm-cuddles are ... luscious. Look forward to this tale's conclusion. Fantastic job on it! ~ RK
Thanks Raven Knight. I hope the last chapter doesn't leave you choking on your Wheeties (or muesli, or toast, or whatever)!

Warm soft purrful lovings for you, dear writer. Top!Spock is always a surprise and a blessing in my world. Don't worry about possessive!Spock, he can come out and play in some other story. I loved the lovings, I loved the fact that they want to make each other as happy as the other, and I love the fact that everything is right in Surik's world -- Jim, Spock, Bones, and Surik, all going to dinner. Wonderful. I think this story was purrrfect and I'm so glad I read it!
Thanks ForgottenOne. Thanks for sticking with the story, and posting so many helpful and inspiring reviews! You've kept me writing this...

Aw, what a beautiful, BEAUTIFUL story! You absolutely had me at Spock rescuing a kitten but to make it an alien, telepathic cat was so unexpected! This story had me seriously captivated and I am totally putting it on my rec list even if it's unfinished work. All my thanks and soft purr cuddle lovings for writing this, and I hope last chapter will be published soon? :))
I'm so touched by your comments! Glad you like it so much... I;ve just put up part XI - turns out the story wants a part XII to wrap things up... So stay posted... ;)

oh god this is so beautiful! One of the most beautiful mindmeld scenes I'd ever read. crossing fingers it would be top!spock when comes to sexy times bc there're bottom spocks all over the world these days it kinda made me wanna see the opposite.
Thanks pockylove for your comments and for stopping to leave a review. I am never sure exactly what's meant by top!Spock. I hope part XI at least partially fulfills your hopes! I like to think that the best relationships are mutual, and while in future stories I want to explore an unequal relationship between our boys, in this story they simply had to be mutual in their self-giving to one another. Soft, sweet and probably hopelessly idealistic. But there you go.
