I love how through all that Spock is still calling him Admiral Kirk! This chapter is very well written. You have the underpinning of unresolved sexual tension, but also their mutual loneliness. Very nice!
Yes, they are drawn together in any universe, truly meant to be.

This is a poignant beginning. I like the relationship between Spock and S'Bren--both warm and respectful, in both directions.
Somehow I missed all your reviews! Thanks for commenting on all the chapters! I loved writing his son. I wanted to make him childlike but not too cutesy! I always pictured Spock being an overprotective father, given his own circumstances - kind of overcompensating.

Thank you for a totally engaging tale, I enjoyed it so much! I loved the unexpected turn in T'Pring, I find it very likely that under the seemingly distant and offending outside there was a suffering heart, proudly concealed under perfect Vulcan control.
In the end your story was almost to quick for my taste, I would have loved to read about the ordeal of the severing of the bond and about Jim's reaction to the news, their riuniting, the first encounters between Jim and S'Bren. --- But ... we are free to imagine, aren't we!

Funny you should say that, because I had intended for it to be a much longer story.... but RL was starting to butt in, so I opted to shorten the story to finish it rather than drag it out over weeks more. I had intended to follow up with a sequel with flashbacks later but so far haven't done so.... perhaps one day. I have been toying with the idea of writing something from Bren' pov, following his upbringing on Earth.

awww that was so cute >< !!!
(but even if T'pring lost her love, she was a bitch to her boy and to Spock which is not good at all)
Thanks for all your commentary! I enjoyed reading them - had to go back and remind myself of what happened in each chapter! Glad you liked it, thanks!

I agree with Spock about the ritual :/
ohoh ^^ the fun begins I see
Yes, I have always found it odd that such a supposedly advance culture would continue to have this ritual. You figure that at least some of the population would morally object to this. Too many times the Vulcans are portrayed as a monolith, with everyone believing the exact same thing in lockstep, but that's not how a society functions in reality. People are going to have different pov's.
