Woe is me (watery eyes), I was so afraid that the end will be accompanied with a cry of my pain (smiles in relief) I feel like I can breathe again. I read the whole story in one weekend. I could not download the i-phone out of my hands. You surprise me every time. This story makes me think how much I'm glad I discovered this archive. Thank you for another wonderful experience.

Yeah so you should probably put 30 degrees celsius for us slow americans. It took me a moment to realize you meant Celsius. I thought, "30 degrees is below freezing, of course he's cold." Luckily the confusion didn't last long. Engineering major and I still have to think twice when they talk about Celsius.

So after finding myself in the surreal situation where I'm currently doing a home stay for several weeks with a woman who turned out to be the former editor for a fanzine in a different fandom, I ended up watching Starman for the first time, on her suggestion. And it wasn't until toward the very very end, when I was trying to resist the urge to look up the ending, to find out if the Starman lived or not and thinking about how there was only five minutes left and I should just wait, that the thought flashed theough my head about your story, how it ended, and I had that lightbulb moment of "OMG was that fic modeled on this movie? Was it mentioned in the notes somewhere?" And I couldn't remember the name of this story, but tracked it down, and I'm not really sure what the point of this comment is, except that the thought that your fic was loosely based on it reassured me that everything would be okay.
Also, I really enjoyed your fic when I read it awhile back.

- Liked this story very much - even if your full Vulcan Spock seemed more human than the canon Spocks. Especially his revenge against Rossi. Very human.
Quite true, but this us AU, so I can color outside the lines, so to speak. Glad you liked it.

Okay …I know Kirk lives in Iowa but every time I see the word Riverside I only think of California. And let me tell you …Riverside, CA is no nice corn field town. Anyway, I know exactly how Jim feels …Direct TV is no mucho gusto.
“Like the doctor, huh?”
I clapped in glee at that line.
Can’t wait to continue!

LOL. This was awesome. I swear to God, I keep coming across stories that you've written that I've never seen on the site before. I found this on the challenges page!
Oh! And, by the way, I loved it. Still, what do you have against David Rossi? LOL I always loved his character on Criminal Minds.

Hahaaa! Star Trek and Criminal Minds Crossover? You didn't even try to hide your references there! You should at least give credit to the series in the authors note, as of right now you might be playfully fencing with copyright infringement.

First, my sincere well wishes to you and your family.
This story: where to start? It's beautifully detailed, with attention to everything from the emotional life of chickens to the way Quakers would likely be viewed by the Chinese.
The ending was a delight, of course. As I work for a very large, corporation, it makes all kinds of sense to me that you can indeed "lose" things on purpose, but often all it takes is a bit of focused personal interest to unravel things (dammit, Rossi).
What really caught my attention though, was the care to detail in between beginning and happy ending. I do love your writing, so it wasn't a surprise :-) but I still reveled in Spock becoming culturally acclimated. How many times have we seen this particular trope? And it was still new in your hands here.
Thank you. This was a real treat!
TYVM. I'm so glad yu enoyed it.
