I just joined the fandom for not a really long time actually and was on my way to find some K/S fanfiction. I feel so so happy that I found this beautiful story of yours! It was so well written and I really like way you portrayed every character in the fiction! I just love this story so SO much that I don't know what to say. I'm looking forward for the chapters!
I can't wait to see Spock finally feels the happiness he deserves after everything that happened.
Thank you so much for writing this beautiful story! <3 <3
I'm so SO SO SORRY for only seeing this review!!! It ended up in my spam folder!!!! D: I'm SO SORRY! That being said, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS COMMENT! Welcome to the K/S Fandom - I hope you have explored much and have been enjoying the many decades worth of fic out there! Thank you for choosing to read mine and for all of the lovely and kind things you've said about it. <3 - RK

THANK YOU FOR CONTINUING THE FIC I TRY TO RETURN TO FANDOM
You're welcome! It's been a struggle to get the final chapter(s) right, but I'm still working hard on finishing it! Thank you for your feedback! :D Hope to hear from you once the last of this is posted finally. ~ RK

Spock is save. Good News. ;-)
It seems that the big end is near. ;-)
Yes, Spock is safe. And you are correct, the end of this fic is approaching! I hope you find the finals chapter(s) satisfying when it is posted! Thank you so much for leaving a comment! ~ RK

Love this so much! I'm really looking forward to Marcus' downfall, especially with how he treated Spock.
So glad you like this story and are still interested, laustic! :D Fear not, Marcus's downfall is coming. I just hope it proves satisfying for everyone. ~ RK

I'm happy that things are starting to look up for you!
This is a terrific chapter. I love how you're weaving your own take into this. :)
HI, laustic! So happy to see you're still interested in this story! Things are slowly but surely improving, thank you for the support! I have taken some liberties with the storyline a bit, yes, and there are a few more of those left in the last couple of chapters that I hope you enjoy, too! If I recall correctly, you really like the film I based this on, right? Hopefully, you find the ending satisfying for this version, too. Thanks for commenting and your support!

An other great chapter.
Glad you are back. ;-)
Jim is great... leave T'Pring to be happy...
And... how exciting... poor Spock. I hope he is rescued now... but ...
Have a good time
Thank you - for reviewing and your kind words! Jim did the right thing for everyone in that scene with T'Pring - and he's finally put the pieces together! About time, right? We will learn what happened to Spock next chapter! Hang in there. Thank you again! So glad you're still interested in this story!

THIS IS SO GOOD. Im so glad I read this, I love the movie and this is so beautifully written . I cant wait for the next chapter, poor Spock!! So good tho <3
Ah! Thank you so much! You are super kind. Spock's situation is incredibly bleak right now. Sorry to leave him at this stage for a little while as I work on the next chapter. Thank you for commenting and for your lovely feedback. Hope to hear from you again as this story continues. ~ RK

As always, you provided an incredible chapter.
Hope you feel better soon.
Thank you, laustic! Both for the kind review and the well-wishes. I'm trying to get there. So glad you're still reading and enjoying this story! You've been among my first readers, and I always appreciate you reading my work for the last couple of years. ~ RK

Oh My Goodness....... My heart can't take it.
Please tell me it ends happy, with my baby Spock being held in Jims arms.
Great work as alway.
Can't wait for the next one, but take your time. Hope you feel better soon and all is well.
I'm sorry for wounding your heart. (If it helps, Spock's and Jim's are wounded too, at this point in the story. So you aren't alone.) Well, I can't tell you how it ends, but I can tell you that the pieces really start coming together next chapter, so the answer is coming. Thank you for your lovely comment and well-wishes. Slowly but surely, a little too slowly for my personal liking, things are sort of improving. There's much farther to go. Thanks, again! Hope you enjoy the next chapter when I post it. Been focusing on it the last few days solid. ~ RK

So Jim slowly takes the truth... I hope not to late. It's too bad for Spock.. an Jim too.
Thanks for your feedback! Jim is finally and slowly putting the pieces together. Next chapter, everything starts coming together and you'll find out whether or not Jim is too late. ~ RK

I love this story.
It's a great fairy tale and I hope the next chapter comes soon. ;-)
I'm so happy you like this one! You and I both hope that I can write the next chapter much faster than it took me to write this last update. It should definitely not take that long, though. Thank you for reading and commenting! ~ RK
Date: 02/08/2017 12:26 AM Title: Prologue
Ah an update worth resorting my password for. Oh so horrible to be left not knowing yet how you are going to rescue this situation
YES! Thanks, Soral! The situation will be rescued, but it might take some time for things to go back to as they should be. Stay tuned! More to come! ~ RK
Date: 02/06/2017 7:29 AM Title: Chapter 11 - The Masque
I admit, I cried at the end of this chapter just like I cried during that same scene in the movie.
*hands you a tissue* I'm sorry, though not sorry at all because I wanted this to be emotionally awful for both characters and readers...I'm not doing my job if I can't make you care about the characters and their experiences, right? THank you for being such a faithful reader and reviewer, laustic! *hug* ~ RK
Date: 11/29/2015 9:57 PM Title: Chapter 10 - Revelations
What a great (and long) update. Dying with this cliffhanger, though. More and more interested in this Carol/McCoy thing. And Carol hiding the items but Spock getting blamed is something I can really relate to from my childhood, wow.
Thank you for reviewing! I hoped the length would make up for the wait with this one. That you are interested in the Carol/McCoy relationship in this story thrills me to no end! :D That makes me so happy that you like Carol's storyline in this. She is a major player in the events of this story - very important. She still has some great moments coming up. Thank you again for reading. ~ RK

You know how much I adore your writing and this chapter! I fangirled already in my mail to you. But really, this chapter was so amazing and heartbreaking and I'm still a little bit broken, even after rereading it dozens of times.
Thank you, my friend. Yes, you did flail in the email you sent and it made my day! Eventually, things will be alright for our lovers in this story, but it will not be an easy fix. Hang in there. ~ RK
Date: 11/15/2015 2:06 AM Title: Chapter 10 - Revelations
So I saw you'd updated this fic and sat down this morning to read the whole thing, and was utterly hooked! Can't wait for the next update!
Thank you, Ashaya! Wow - can't believe you read the whole thing in one shot. Goodness. But I am glad you did and are enjoying it so much. :) That makes me happy. But, first I have to get through T'hy'la Big Bang, and then the New Year's story. After that, it is back to this and Traitors' Sons. Lots of writing to do...so much writing. ~ RK
Date: 11/13/2015 6:04 AM Title: Chapter 10 - Revelations
I really do love how Carol is being portrayed. She's trying to help Spock out and yet she does realize and understand that Natasha and the others don't completely trust her (yet). And ohh, Jim and Spock having that last rendezvous was so heartbreaking and sweet and beautiful. This is just so amazing.
Thank you, laustic! I'm thrilled you are enjoying Carol's role in this story - she is very important and has some more good moments coming up. She is much smarter than her father and sister give her credit for, but she is guilty by association in the eyes of their servants, unfortunately. That will change soon, especially during the events surrounding and following the Masque. Also, very glad you liked how the last meeting between Jim and Spock went. That took so long to get right! Glad you enjoyed it. Hoping to update this one once I get two more fics written. Thank you for faithfully reviewing. ~ RK

A aargh please urgent update.
Soral! Thank you for reviewing! I will try to update soon. Had to write the K/S Advent story, and am working on T'hy'la Big Bang next. Then it is back to this and Traitors' Sons. Glad you are enjoying this. ~ RK
