Another amazing chapter...They both can't stop thinking about each other....it's pretty silly when you think about it...both beating around the bush, I really don't want this position Jim....please make something happen...
I am just glued to every detail you write. Spock's discoveries he makes when he is young, the incidents you numbered.
Love the letter that Jim wrote but didn't send..(wish he had)....and the humor...
Dear Spock, what on earth am I supposed to do with all this guava juice?”
So glad that they both are finally communicating, even though it wasn't much, but it is a start.
Are you really sure you shouldn't add pre-slash to this story, or is it wishful thinking...
I am truly in love with this fic. Excellent.
Thank you so much for this and your earlier review. I really appreciate you picking out the bits you like (thank you in particular for appreciating the humour, to me it's such a key part of Kirk).

Oh, those two... they're such a pair of idiots! Why don't they just write to each other, dammit?
This is great - all the soul-searching and rumination is absolutely perfect! Totally loving this story.
Thank you so much; lovely thing to say. They could write to each other, but then I wouldn't have a story to write, so blame me...

Excellent explanations of their self-imposed obstacles and authentic challenges to recognizing, communicating, and adjusting to shifting sands. Will keep checking back for more!
Hi. Do reviewers read responses to their reviews? - I never know. Another thing I didn't know before I started posting was the effect of reviews - I have been caught unaware by their impact on me and the consequent impetus to keep writing. Of course, this can be counter-productive in terms of taking time to get the story right (as well as on the rest of my life!), and I rather agree with you about the campus-storming in "Empirical Evidence", sorry about that. But your reviews have a distinctive voice and I am writing to thank you for them and also for the trust in getting involved with a WIP, having myself profound sympathy with the reluctance to do so. I will do my best to keep the balance between a realistic narrative and frequent updates and thank you again, very much, for your kindness in bothering to write.

just loving this story so much, too bad in comes out in such small pieces. Kirk and Spock's little correspondence just made me sigh thoughtfully.
What a lovely thing to say, thank you so much. I am sorry about the small pieces and I do know how frustrating it is to read works in progress (it's one of the reasons I started writing, so that I could be in control!) - blame family, friends and job - but I promise I'll keep going, I have it all mapped out.

You know, I've been in that position where someone I loved moved countries and it took about six months to email them with something quite trivial and open that line of communication, which was esentially "fuck I really miss you, you'e the only one who would have got the humour in the situation at work today" It took some trivial and mundane correspondence to get to I think I might love you. You captured that gapping hole where the other half of your soul belongs so well, thank you. I really lookforward to seeing how your story plays out.
Thank you so much for the feedback, it's truly appreciated. I agree it's harder to be open in correspondence; so permanent and such a commitment and you never know where it may end up...
