I very much like this reflection about life, here ,there and after. I like the gratitude Jim feels for the Vulcan by his side and I much adore Spock's understanding of what happened between Jim and OldSpock during those last moments together. Thank you for a piece of writing that makes us look beyond the boundaries.

Incredible! Wow this was really wonderful. I have no idea how you did this - it is inspired and inspiring. Thank (god?) the plot bunny wouldn't die! Thank you so much for posting it - I enjoyed it tremendously.
Thank you so much! I'm not thanking God for this particular one, because I should be working on a school project, but whatever. Writing keeps me sane, and I am incredibly gratified that people enjoy what I write. :)

this was so very sad. I loved the detail, Spock helping Jim steal the ashes, Jim almost becoming the older Jim. I am guessing this might also speak to your own philosophy about life after death. Thank you for sharing this.
Thank you for reading! I am a practicing Christian, although I'm about as liberal as they come when it comes to politics and theology. I do not ascribe to traditional views on Heaven and Hell (and if you read it right, the Bible doesn't either). I am not arrogant enough to think my views are the only ones that matter, nor do I think I know anything about the afterlife or what it entails. I deliberately left the reality of what they saw ambiguous so people could make up their own minds about what happened to Selek and Jim, although my view is that they are living together for eternity in some way. However, like Jim, there have been many moments when I have sat at my windowsill and contemplated the passage of time and what happens after death. Writing his thoughts down was an extremely cathartic experience.
