That was every bit as fantastic this time, as when you let me read it eleven years ago. I am completely overwhelmed by it again - the whole slow opening of Spock is just fantastic. Thank you for writing this and for sharing it.

It was certainly a very interesting story. I loved it, especially Spock constant fight with his feelings.
I loved it and loved in the end, at last, they accepted their feelings.
Thanks for writing this beautiful story, thank you very much for create this^ ^

Wow. I love TMP-era fics, and this is a truly excellent example. I was mad that Jim and Spock were blind to how each other felt, pushing each other away when all they really wanted to do was hold on. I was glad when Jim called him back, and worried when Spock was injured. I'm glad you got rid of both the women - T'Brita was an interesting and likeable character, but nothing can stand between our boys! I also commend you on your as-yet-unsurpassed talent for creating original, well-developed characters to supplement the story. Like all of your work, this was satisfying down to the soul. I didn't want it to end! Thank you for sharing. : )

This story is utterly magnificent. The characterisation is exemplary, the prose flows effortlessly, the plot is captivating and the mood is completely heart wrenching. I kept thinking that if you didn't give us a happy ending I would track you down and make you rewrite the story at gunpoint, but luckily, that didn't have to happen; the turning point and the ending were completely satisfying (even if the incoming-car-plot-device is common to romantic stories).
Even the sex, while probably written in the rawest style I have seen in any slash fandom so far, was a joy to read (I had to take a cold shower afterwards). The language was completely appropriate for Spock though, and somehow all the more powerful for its straightforward honesty.
Thank you for sharing this with us.

It's 04:26am where I am and you know what? I've got work at 08:00am but who the hell cares because I was reading...no, being devoured by the BEST Star Trek fic I have EVER read and yeah...that includes 'Home' by Lanea. Where do I even begin with how much of my soul this story now owns? Where to begin with your sheer AMAZINGNESS? How am I to even find words?
I admit, at first I was hesitant with this story. The first chater felt somewhat disjointed to me, but only because I came into it with TOTALLY the wrong exectations. You know long it's been since I've cried while reading fanfiction? You have taken me on the most beautiful, painful and yet uncontrollably exquisite journey and I'm thunderstruck, to be honest. 10 reviews? What is wrong with people? This should have MILLIONS of reviews, dear God it needs to win some kind of award. I signed up with this site just to review and let me just say that I NEVER review.
Your writing, part from the heart breakingly gorgeous storyline, is unforgettable. This....
"There were times when Spock wanted to sink his mind into Jim's so much that he felt he would burst with the wanting, that his shrieking need would splatter itself across creation. If only he had not tasted, those few times on the ship, the quicksilver perfection of his t'hy'la's spirit."
...Owns me. Literally. How....HOW....can you write like this? I'm so jealous I might actually BE a Goddamned Vulcan, the shade of green I'm turning but it's a high comliment and I'm still just rambling because you took all the words necessary for me to relate my feelings about this masterpiece. Oh, if there are spelling errors in this it's ALL YOUR FAULT for making me cry/stay up until 4:33am/become emotionally unstable!
This encompassed every layer of perfection in ways I didn't even know existed. You are a powerhoue writer, please tell me you're published? Were it not for copywright crap, I would PAY you to own this. As it is, I need to sleep now because my heart is pounding so hard it hurts and I'm up for work in 3 and half hours but I regret NOTHING! You may actually have altered my life with your sheer (sorry for lack of a better word) AWESOMENESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a marvellous piece of work! An extended story with such an introspective remit is tricky to sustain, but you've managed it deftly and believeably here. Some of it was heavy weather - but I mean that as a compliment; you conjure Spock's state of mind so effectively, it makes the reader feel as if they suffer and endure with him, every step of the way.
Your original characters are excellent - avoiding cliches and flourishing in three dimensions, especially T'Brita. Most of all, though, the relationship between Spock and Kirk is very, very beautiful. The 'confession' scene in Jim's spare bedroom was one of the best of that kind I have ever read; I applaud your power at conjuring emotions and thank you for a superb story.

Dear Jenna, i don't understand why u wonderful authors don't get paid for your beautiful work. What a masterpiece i have here in front of my eyes. Homosexuality does not apply here. It is pure, raw, love. This gem is about a two people who finally discover what they have meant for each other. How can we not be happy for them. I was transfixed, chapter after chapter not wanting it to end. The longest foreplay ever...and then to have to wait 5 days. Thank god Spock healed himself. Thank you again Jenna. I only hope to find the passion these 2 hold in my life. Peace.

I like T'Brita. She's the ideal bondmate for Spock if Jim is not in the picture. I like the fact that she's more flexible than the Vulcan norm - and I believe she has the potential to experience human emotions such as happiness and love if she immersed herself more in human culture especially if she was to find herself enamoured with another human. If there's a story of her, I would most definitely read it.
The K/S side is again - a wonderful read. I love the emotions that were being played in this from the first paragraph of the first chap to the last of the last chap. The build up was a most pleasurable read.
Again - I thank you for sharing your wondrous fics such as this one. I will most definitely read any of your works in fiction published online or novella form in the future. =)
