Ah, I kind of needed this piece! You take all the lose ends, the emotional lose ends and tie them up in such a convincing fashion. You follow some of the most important "what must it have meant to..." and "how would they have coped with..." and it feels totally right.
And the best part is, that the way Kirk fights for his crew to be treated fairly corrisponds exactly to the impression I had at a certain point in the movies, that behind this hyperactive kid there is hidded a GREAT comanding officer, one who never doubts one second to offer his own life to save crew and ship, one who will fight his deadly fatigue in order to let his friend know he cares deeply for him.
I'd very much like to read on, to read your interpretation of what follows after.

Last week was a slow fanfic week and I startd reading your stories. I didn't get into this fandom fanfic until after the 2nd moive (TOS I've been a fan of for years) so I missed this story 1st time around and am so glad I read it. I love the writing, the idea and execution and for me it took off when Jim went in search of Spock and every detail after that was briliant. And of course, it's great having such a positive message (in general for RL and in terms of this movie). My favorite character for both TOS and the reboot is Spock, but I really liked this Jim and glad Spock has him caring for him :)

This was beautiful; had me in tears. It was the part about the sea turtles. My sister died 11/11 and today is mother's day 2013. I have had a hell of a time getting my mother to continue to live. Yesterday I was upset because she would not consent to go to dinner with my father,brother and our children. I told her it was unfair to retreat so far when we (her other kids and grandkids) are still alive. She was not very receptive to say it politely; she did, however, go to dinner today. The point is, that it is all about the sea turtles and it is some kind of crazy miracle that I read this story today. That is exactly what I was trying to tell my mom. The sea turtles survived and she will too if she will let us help. So yeah...sorry about the rant ...I just had to let you know how profoundly this story affected me and why. I am going to cry it out now and tomorrow I am writing my mother a note about the sea turtles. Thanks for the awesome story!
I am so sorry for your loss. Grief does terrible things to people. I'm glad if this fic helped in even a small way. I hope the situation improves for you and your mom.

I really liked this. Of course jim would make sure his crew are taken care of... And of course he would want spock to remember this living. Very profound, yet simple.
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed

The american alligator? Pick another crocodile, those darn gators are here to stay!
like all the emotional stuff, and Kirk and Pike's relationship
I like the idea of Kirk and Pike having a complex relationship. I'm glad you enjoyed.
As for the gators... I decided I couldn't pick everything off the endangered species list! That would be too predictable!

Poor Jim and Spock. This is how I would have imagined it after they all returned. A big ole mess and confusion and Spock's grief. But I do see Spock and Jim connected already. I think you should continue this. Seriously.
I've thought it would be interesting to write a story about them coming back to Earth to face an inquiry. They didn't exactly follow orders, did they? Thanks for commenting!

Wow.... This was wonderful! I loved that Jim stood up for his crew and didn't back down until they were taken care of - that is one of the hallmarks of a true leader, that he (or she) will see his/her soldiers fed and housed before eating or sleeping him/herself. This fic wasn't what I'd been expecting, and I loved the ending most of all. Would you care to browse my 40 other challenges? I would be simply delighted if you decided to answer another one. You did this one beautifully.
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I realized I probably wasn't writing the story you had in mind, but I was hoping it would suffice.
