This is cute, but to me, Kirk and Spock seem far more alike than they do different. Sure, there's the emotion vs. logic thing, but they have so many other traits in common. How many humans OR Vulcans end up as senior officers on a starship? It's an unusual person who does so, and to end up in such a place, a person must have a certain set of characteristics. Kirk and Spock are both senior officers on a starship because they're both brave men, both bold explorers, both unconventional people. They are both highly moral men, both extremely competent, both highly intelligent, both in agreement about nearly everything.
Oh, and thanks to you, I now have Jailhouse Rock stuck in my head. :-)

Awwwww, that was SO sweet!!! So full of romance and yet, and the same time, so believable and intelligent.. The adoration you feel for these wonderful characters is clearly shown by the respectful and accurate way you describe them.. In particular I appreciate the care you give to the dialogues and to the description of their internal psychology.. and I love the way you describe "slices of life aboard the Enterprise".. :) I'll tell you, Ruby, you ARE a gifted writer.. One of the most interesting at the moment here in the archive.
But please, please, tell me: just when are you going to update your other story?! There are fans dying of impatience here, you know! :P
