Very hot. Favorited and looking forward to rereading in the future.

I do agree with newaunty in that the word ravage would suit the story better than the word rape, but I absolutely loved the story otherwise.  Excellent work.

This was a sweet little fic, thank you so much. One thing - you might consider changing the word, "rape", in the two places you've used it, to, "ravage" instead - "ravage" suits the context better, and I can't envision Spock ever using the word, "rape" in that setting. And while I don't find it offensive or triggering, I'm aware some people might. 

Otherwise, this was delightful! So few fics focus on these rumours that Roddenberry inserted into TMP, and even less on Spock's knowledge of them. I can't help but believe that Spock would be well aware of any such rumours, especially if they occurred during their five year mission - Spock may be socially obtuse at times, but i think, especially given humans propensity to forget how good his hearing is, that he would've been well aware of the social undercurrents and happenings on the ship. 

Thank you so much for sharing this! I was a teenager and then a student during the "glory years" of fanzines, and living in a small town in an isolated area of Australia, I had extremely limited access to them. It's wonderful to see them appearing online now, even if it is 30 years later. 😊

I may have read this years ago when the zine was published, but if I did it still holds up very well.  How like Spock to learn of the rumor and keep his mouth shut.  How like them in some ways to be the last to figure out that they love each other.  Thanks for bringing this to the archive!  I enjoyed it.
