This was an incredible piece. I love the psychology of it, the way it delved into character motivations. Such an intensely vivid portrayal of Kirk, and so visceral.
The story felt intimate, and entirely relatable, effortlessly capturing what it feels like to be at a crossroad in life.
I especially enjoyed the simple elegance in which you addressed Kirk and Spock's relationship, understated in a way that they always have been, yet conveying so much with body language, with their eyes, in that way where they say little, but what they say means everything. There was a reverence there that was brilliant to read and experience.
I really enjoyed this, thank you!

Lovely story, a believable discussion with Spock and introspective musings on Kirk's part in the aftermath of TMP. Jim's eyes have finally opened fully and he knows what he wants and needs, and he is willing to take the step to keep them both :-D. This is one of those feel-good stories I like to re-read on a regular basis. Nice mention of Spock's special smile "for Kirk alone". I love that smile :).
I'm very glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the feedback. (I love that smile too...!)

An insightful meditation on the nature of change, and how even our negative experiences contribute to who we are, and are therefore not to be denied. I enjoyed the serenity of the piece, and the sense of anticipation in the face of an unknown future. Very nice.
Thank you so much for the feedback. :-) It's wonderful that something I wrote so long ago - 1981 - still speaks to people. That's quite humbling.
