Love the conversation they had together about Spock wanting a transfer and what they did about it. You also added that humor we often see, usually Jim is the funny one, but Spock adds his own touch. 'rain check'... precipitation... Plus, you have that knack of being so visual. I can see Jim crossing his arms and he has that laid back attitude, not to mention that smile when he looks at Spock. The dialogue is spot on, and it would have been perfect to have seen your scene after Balance of Terror.
I can understand Spock wanting to be perfect, and he honestly thinks he has failed Jim Kirk. Jim of course sets him straight. Both of them working together is perfection.
Thanks so much for sharing this piece. Wonderful read.

Charming and very much in character, very TOS. It reflects extremely well the uniqueness of the association of the two men, where Jim's open heart and curiousity wins Spock's confidence against all the barriers he had erected.
And ... it's always a treat to read some new fic of yours.
Author's Response: I'm so glad you think I kept the guys in character. That's very important to me. Thanks for your comments. I do so appreciate the support you've always shown for my work, angelocustode.

I am so happy to read a new story from you! and the timing is amazing - just yesterday I was re-reading some of your stories and I happened upon 2 that I'd missed in my first read through of your work, but I hadn't gotten a chance to comment.
And then today - this beautiful piece! thank you :)

This last line sort of sums up Kirk and Spock. More than just lovers. It makes all the cannon uses of the word friend take on a more powerful and deeper meaning that just speaking of live and lust.
Author's Response: I'm obviously a Spockie, but I've always loved Jim Kirk for being Spock's first real friend. Thanks for seeing that, too.
