I really enjoyed this story because it more fully developed Vulcan customs and family life. Of course my favourite moment was when Spock said I too am a virgin. Make me not one. In my younger days, that is what I dreamed of saying to Spock and I doubt that I was the only one. Thanks for making me believe that the planet Vulcan does exist.

The Warrior culture could be described as brutal and archaic, yet one must look beyond to see the compassion and devotion they have for the welfare of their people. They are defined by that devotion and loyalty and supported by that dedication. Their children may know danger and sadness, but they also know they are loved. They do not deny their way is passing but do not allow that to lessen their vigilance. Knowing the forces that shaped them, you cannot but respect. I appreciate Kirk, for being the outlet for all that IDIC stands for, accepting and supporting out of respect for a member of that culture he as come to know. His willingness to experience lead him to his hearts desire.

I enjoyed this story. It's an A/U, and really a very rich new universe indeed! I found the religion and rituals a great backdrop to bringing Kirk and Spock together, and also the culture and customs of this alternative Vulcan. I like the way Kirk is shown as having undefined feelings for Spock, making his later willingness to help despite the apparent cost to him, more realistic, and we get a hint early on that Spock is loyal to Kirk but not why, which too comes out later on in a 'confession'. It's a well-written, well-paced first time story. Well done!
