Yeah, I do agree that Starfleet is more a Military Training Place - Barracks, as such - But couldn't think of the correct terms. I only suggest that you could, perhaps, do a segment, a paragraph, a remembrance that covers the whole Military Academy thing - Just might be interesting!

Your illness excuses you, we have to say that but the truth is the wait for the denouement will be torture.
I'm sure I'll have it up by the end of the week. There is no way all the ideas floating around my head can stay in there for that long. Thank you for the rating and the review. ;)

God I hate being sick it sucks especially when you have kids.
Yeah, and she's sick too. So, I'm nursing a whining-induced migraine, but it could be worse. She pretty much just chills out but god forbid she have to wipe her own ass while she has a runny nose, lol.
It's been "I can't eat dinner, I got runny nose." or "I can't walk cause my runny nose," or "I need ice cream for my runny nose." I shit you not, lol. I love it, but now that I have it...ugggggghhhhh.

This is beautiful, just as before... I faultered a bit over the mentioning of Spock teaching Xenolinguistics after going to 'School' (Uni, really, if anything!) himself, at the Academy. Personally, I don't think he was an official tutor, more that he was filling time, still a student himself, because he'd completed his Academy Training/Academic learning, but could not be allowed to graduate so soon - Jim graduated in 3 years; Spock must have graduated even earlier...
Having said all that, I know that your story could be read to agree with my idea - and, for the rest of it, the story is marvellously heartfelt...
He could have been a GA, I didn't specify. Personally, I don't think it would have been a big deal if he and Uhura were dating or at least talking while she was student and if he was professor. Starfleet Academy is just like Westpoint, really. It's not so much college as it military training. I think Starfleet regs and University decorum are probably two different things. Even in college, it's more frowned upon than anything else. The only time you get in trouble for shit like that is if it turns nasty and starts to effect the quality of your work or the image of the university negatively.

Oh, love Pon Farr. Really. Such goodness. Anyway, a very bittersweet chapter. Jim's gonna kick Spock in the ankles once he figures out what's going on. LOL. I'm sorry you're sick and hope you get better very soon. Great chapter! Will beg and grovel for more!
Love and cherries,
Glad you like it. It'll be my first time writing Pon Farr, hope I don't fuck it up which is why I'm not even going to attemp to write it until I don't have a fever, lol.

Aw.... gawd, I am now an hour late for a meeting because I began to read this and couldn't stop. Lovely! About time Jim stopped being such an uptight head-case and just hugged poor Spock!
Lol. Of course he would give the Vulcan the comfort he needed. Jim just can't help himself. I'm sorry I made you late for a meeting. Shame on you for your lack of self-control. Do you like how I just shifted the blame there? Pretty good, huh? JK. Glad you like it and I hope whoever you were meeting with wasn't too pissed.

I love the ending - even though the sadness brought them together. Spock has got to feel Jim's love through their touch as they lay together now.
Yes, Spock is definitely feeling the love...I'm sure.

That was awesome, and, particularly the stuff about being on Vulcan, resonated with me for personal reasons right now; if I'd read that early on, I'd've probably been all to human myself and stopped reading... However, the tapestry of emotions in the story is beautifully woven...
On the funny side, I loved: “I haven’t slept more than three hours at a time for the last week and a half, I can’t focus on away missions, I can’t focus on the bridge, I can’t even focus on eating in the mess hall! And now…now I’m having WET DREAMS!” Jim nearly shouted the last, and thank heavens for military grade sound proofing and privacy glass, was McCoy’s initial thought after promptly spraying his drink through his nose. That had been about the last thing he had expected to hear fly out of Jim’s mouth. He’d figured it was the admiralty again or some other such Starfleet mudslinging that usually had Jim in here banging his head against the closest available surface.
When he finally managed to reign in his coughing fit and wipe the brandy from his face, McCoy practically growled his frustration, “The next time you’re about to spout to me about your dysfunctional sex life, I’d appreciate a little forewarning.”
Very MUCH! Needed the laugh! The whole McCoy segment is a JOY!!!
The whole story is truly brilliantly written..! SO WELL DONE!!!
Awe, I'm glad you liked it and thank you for not stopping reading. :D Like I said, there will be minor angst but nothing too terrible. ;) Jim will make it all better.

well, I Love your keyboard then It did a great job. Spock is so wonderful. Me Love a Snecky Spock. Poor jim trying so hard to be a good friend and save Spocks Virtue. Love it. xoxoxoxox
Yes, not that it will last for long, lol. I don't think anyone can deny a determined Vulcan for too long without acknowledging its futility.

That was great when Jim figured out he got played and my heart broke for Spock that the first memory he got back was of his mother's death. This is truly great!!!! I'm so looking forward to the next chapter and how they get together^^
Thank you for the kind words. I'm glad you're enjoying it so far. ;)

Spell check - 3 rd paragraph 'spock pressed down his annoyance at their' should be her?
Also, when spock is describing what his father does, it should be something like 'sarek served as a diplomat'.
I really liked how you described spock's pov... How aluring he found his Golden One, and the detail of how he reacted to seeing uhura versus his viseral reaction to kirk.
It's supposed to say 'their delay.' and I fixed the wording for that sentence about Sarek.
