Is this what you meant when you said you needed to write some AU's on the lighter side? Although it is a fantastically written story, it still has that wonderful element of angst that you have mastered. So, although not so light, it is exactly the way I like it, although I prefer to imagine the happier of the two possible endings. I am truly impressed at how you are able to write such beautiful stories with such AU characters who still remain faithful to the characters of Kirk and Spock. Please, please continue to write and post. Your stories truly enrich the lives of all of us.
No, it's not exactly what I meant. ::grins:: I was speaking more of stuff like 2 is Company. This one was a challenge response and it sorta came to me this way. I'm glad it was entertaining and true to the characters!;)

You really got the TOS Spock to come though. Uhura reads like the XI characters to me, but the mix works, and it's an AU anyway. You conveyed the essence of Kirk well, what and how he fights and why. The end threw me a bit, but I think I like it anyway.
I liked it. Totally worth reading repeatedly.
Thank you, that's very kind! I'm glad it was worth it.

Great to see this one posted here. I liked it very much the first time I read it, and even more the second.
I find it intriguing that you think of this as a TOS AU - for me, I can't read this in a TOS context, the characters, Kirk particularly, just resonate with the new ST XI characters so strongly. It was a real surprise to see the TOS tag.
Great story, either way.
LOL. Actually, it's not surprising, TOS will always be original for me in every sense of the word. And there is considerable closeness between Kirk and nu!Kirk here, I agree, as in I can see them both taking this route; but I can only see one Spock in this story, and it's the original one. ;-)
Thank you for reading, and I'm glad you enjoyed it. xD
