I loved this story. I love that Jim understands so well that Spock was offended / hurt (in a way, but not about to admit it) that they assumed he would not sign even though he is half-Vulcan. That they should have asked. It was perfect how you addressed that even in Starfleet (just like on Vulcan) there are inappropriate assumptions made. I also love that Spock now seems to have accepted, as you noted that "there was no utopia". Vulcan and Earth may not understand him, but it is clear one person does, Jim. That moment made my day.
Thank you so much! I'm so glad you liked it, and especially that you liked that little bit of Spock's back-story and how it connects to the balance/understanding he's found with Jim.

This is a nice piece - a quiet and gentle exploration of the boys and the issues of aging. Your characterization of both Spock and Jim was good, and your dialogue sounded like both of them would to me. Well done!
Thank you so much! I'm so glad you liked it.
