Very nice vignette. I really like the way you write. That obsession about the flowers as a symbol of how he failed, that's oh-so-human. *hugs Jim* I love him for having enough compassion, caring and sense of responsability to feel those crewmen's loss so deeply, but I love him even more to know he'll be able to get over it and keep moving on. I'm happy he doesn't have to do it all by himself though because in the long run it would break any man. Spock succeeded nicely in giving Jim comfort without ever feeling out of characters; both of their voices were spot on. I'm interpreting your last line as an equivalent to Spock's famous "Foget" meld in Requiem for Metuselah, meaning  Spock will actually made that obsessive image of the flowers disappear from Jim's mind; Am I wrong? The description of how Kirk didn't feel the need to push for sex with Spock, although sex is normally what he strove for in situations like that... now IMO that's true love for me :). Thankk you for sharing!

This was very interesting. You took the episode The Apple from the original series and replaced it with the new guys.  Your description of Jim's feelings are so right.  To lose any crewmembers to Jim was always something difficult for him. It is only natural.  We did see the torment he had in the original series so I am imagining new Kirk in his grief.  He doesn't want for Spock to know how terrible he is feeling at the moment.  And finally he can't stand it and blurts is out.  Finally it is all out in the open.  The horrible guilt he has that they died and he wasn't there to save them, all because of the flowers.  This episode showed Jim visibly troubled over the loss.  Atleast in the reboot version you have written he can seek confort in a concerned soul who would do anything to make him forget.  Thanks for posting wonderful sad story but with a side of confort.
