This is awsome, so well done!
Very TOS, it feels great, it feels home, the characters so vivid I can see them.
I love the calm narration of how Kirk comes to know his first officer and to appreciate him. The way you work out the hightening of their mutual attraction in the middle of a very engaging narration is masterly done. I dislike stories that have a week plot as an excuse for lingering on erotic details. Your plot is convincing, has good rythm and timing and the hot scenes fit in naturally.
I'd gladly give you 11 for this and put it into my favorites.

Wonderful--for me this story had the perfect scale and scope. Good plot, pacing, tension. Gradual, convincing development of Kirk and Spock's relationship. I especially like the way the intimacy was gently conveyed--snuck up on Kirk and Spock, quietly acknowledged by each in his own way. I like the way McCoy gently aided them, his relationship with Kirk and Spock too. Thank you--I'm really glad to see this story posted to the archive.
