This is the second of your stories, posted here, that I read today. Again, so tender and moving. There is a marked difference between fic written pre- and post- reboot and yours is a prime (no pun intended) example of this. There is a comfortable maturity in your characters and a truly relaxed feeling, when reading them, that this is TOS in all it's glory. There is no temptation to overlay the mental view of the original characters with the reboot and I (in my own aged state having watched the original series as they aired) enjoy this. Saying that, Reboot Kirk & Spock are quite...hot! For later fiction I read with a sort of hybrid mash up in the mental visual! This story, though, was from the original heart. Thank you!

Such a lovely little story. Spock did an awesome job lifting Jim's spirit and it really touched me when James considered his old body a price for all years he has spent with Spock.That kind of thinking is what we all need in all aspects of our lives and the ending line...priceless. It made me smile and enjoy the story even more for it is a reminder that Jim and Spock are a very old married couple afterall.

I love this! I've got a soft spot for growing old fics, and this one is so sweet. Thanks!

This is just so sweet! This is an issue I think a lot of aging couples go through, and it's wonderful to see how genuine Spock's contnued physical and emotional attraction to Jim is. I love how Spock used the IDIC to show Kirk that he still has value in spite of age and imperfections, that beauty is in the eye and the mind of the beholder.
I hope you keep writing more!
