I loved this story so much, can't really understand why I missed it till now. It totally kept me glued to the computer. You style feels easy and fluent and you characterisation is spot on, even in an AU that might allow for differences. The turning the story took with Jim's confession was most unexpected. High prise for the courage, it worked perfectly well. I admire your comand of language!

OMG, what an amazing story. I read it because of the reviews, and I'm so, so glad I did. The characterizations are deep and true. Sam's role was a true surprise, but it worked very well. Sad to see that "hate crimes" still exist in the ST universe, but good to see that they are taken seriously and prosecuted. Although I wanted a happy ending, I know that it wasn't earned by the end of the story, and I appreciate the fact that Spock is not yet ready to forgive, or for a relationship with Kirk.
I thought that your narrative strategy of showing everything through Spock's point of view was extremely effective. You showed Spock's confusion, fear, lack of knowledge and social skill so vividly, as well as his gradually deepening understanding of Kirk. I bet Kirk understood all along what his touches signified to a Vulcan, but that's one of the interesting mysteries this story holds. I appreciated that all the mysteries are not resolved and that things are not ties up in a neat, nice bow. Just like real life.
Such a pleasure to read a story that is excellent in every way I can imagine.
Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed the story.

WOW! This was fantastic! I loved this concept. I really hope you have something in mind as a follow up.
You caught a side of Spock we need to see more of I feel. The confused side that does not have all the logical answers. And Jim with a golden heart that struggles. And that twist with Sam.... that was great! Did not see that coming
And I admit to snorting outloud at the line "Jim Kirk is turning him into a harlot." Loved that line.
I look forward to more of your stories and am now going to read your other works.
Thank you for sharing this!!
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the story.
