I really liked that. I read of a similar concept in Nightvisions not long ago, the "sightmeld", and I thought it was such a lovely idea, that the blind one could see through the other's eyes. I love the attention you gave to sensory descriptions and how Kirk accepted to offer himself completely to Spock in this experience. That was one incredibly deep meld and a hot one to boot. Once the rush is past Spock might regret what he did, but God, i'm sure he doesn't regret that the last thing he would ever see was the face of Jim as he climaxed in his arms. Well done.

I *love* your style. Such vivid, intense, sensory descriptions; such a fascinating look at telepathy; such an understated acknowledgement of what Spock is feeling. Great job! More, please...!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'll certainly be writing more K/S in the future. Hard to resist.

What a lovely story! I really like your portrayal of Spock. His feelings are there but subtly drawn. And I'd love a sequel. One thing, I think there's a typo.
Like a benediction, Spock speaks. “Are you eyes open.”
Author's Response: Thank you for the feedback! I'm considering a sequel, yeah. The punctuation there was a deliberate choice-- apparently it's too jarring. Now I know. :D
Author's Response: CHRIST. Now I see it. Talk about blind. Thanks.

I enjoyed this story. As you get into the swing of things a fresh style and voice emerge which I could certainly stand to hear more of.
The take on Spock's telepathy is certainly different from my conception, but is appealing to read all the same. The idea of the connection between Kirk and Spock subtly becoming stronger is certainly appealing. *g*
I thought it was a good look at the issues raised by this episode, perhaps taken more seriously and deeply than the episode itself takes them--which is nice. (What do you expect, it's episodic television.)
On a personal note, I liked the ease of reading a story where sex is not preceded by pages of verbal hemming and hawing. Who knows, maybe Kirk and Spock really would have a long, drawn-out, yet awkward conversation (seem to remember a few of those in RL), but it's boring to read. But that's just a personal preference.
I like to see such well-formed ideas in a first essay. Definitely looking forward to reading more from you in the future.
Author's Response: Style! Voice! Hahaha. You make it sound almost legitimate. :D Thanks for the feedback, really. The K/S fandom is giving me a much warmer reception than I deserve, but it's nice to hear that someone gets something out of it. Thanks again.
