I usually don't like fanfics where either one really tries to kill another, but I always read the end first for stories like that and of course since you had a happy ending ... This was very good, well written, the characterizations were so good I really liked Jim and even when he was "evil" he was still so into Spock and protected him. thanks for writing!

Author's Response:

I feel the same way, actually! I don't like what happens between Spock and Kirk to be so bad that they can't come back from it, so I found this story tricky to write, given the plot. I absolutely LOVE writing evil mirror Jim and Spock, but I'm a sucker for a love story... I'm very pleased that you liked it!

I wouldn't change the summary, honestly.  Here's why: reading the summary, and not knowing about what would happen during the story, some people may think "No, not reading Spock killing Kirk."  Now, in my twisted case other than what I mentioned thinking, this crossed my mind: "You know...if Spock assassinates Kirk in this story, I'm curious how he'd do it!"  It's definitely an attention-grabbing hook, so I would keep it as is. 

Author's Response:

Thank you for the advice! It was something I was concerned about before I posted it here, but I think you're right!

I swore I read this a while ago (maybe not that long ago, not sure) on Ao3...Go figure though, I forgot to bookmark it, too.  Glad this very interesting, well-written work popped up here.  Made sure to bookmark it this time!  By the summary I wasn't sure if I wanted to read something that implied Spock was going to go out there and murder Kirk, but I thought, "You know what?  It's Mirror-verse!  Let's read this!"  Glad I did, because this is a fantastic piece of writing! ~ RK

Author's Response:

I did post it on AO3 first, but I'm glad you found it again. I'm starting to think I should change the summary! XD I'm so glad you gave it a chance and enjoyed it, though! And thank you for your comment; it has cheered me up!

Impressive!  I had hesitated to read this when I saw your summary, but it really undersold a good story.  I enjoyed this and will look for more of your work.

Author's Response:

Thank you so much! I totally understand the hesitation. I had a tricky time writing the summary without giving anything away, but I'm glad you gave it a chance and enjoyed it! :)
