Lovely little slice of post-Amok time life.

I liked this story very much. It didn't seem underdeveloped to me. It does, like "Marauder", need a sequel. I'm waiting...

Hm. I can't help seeing this story in the context of Kirk's war. The last chapter there was completely barren of everything this short story here is full of: Spock basically not reacting to his ghastly experience with the Intel, Kirk basically saying: I feel bad you got tortured, see you later..     

And now here in this story things at least get a bit processed and reacted upon:  Spock realising that he came close to ruining Kirks live (here at the Kalifee, in Kirks war by compromising him politically with their relationship) In both situations Spock had no idea what he was getting into (Here with T'Pring, there with the awfulness of political exposure) Here he is having the nightmares I honestly was anticipating him having in Kirks War.   This story compensates a bit - but I hope not completely - and that there is something left for Kirks war..(:-)  

By the way - and again feel free to ignore completely - it is interesting to juxtapose military discipline and personal closeness - what could make it even more effectful is sticking to the military language by f.e. saying "Dismissed" instead of "you can go". Or: "That's all" instead of "that's it". Then it feels less causal.  

All best! C.


Author's Response:

Thanks for the indepth analysis. Yes to what you said. Probably why the story came to mind, now that you mention it.

I'm swamped by classes and work at the moment, so the next chapter of Kirk's War will be another week.

On that note, all will be explained in that one. Comparing the two seems logical, but it's throwing you off. Kirk isn't as mature or commanding in KW and Spock, well, he's finding his way best he can. Interesting now that you throw up the comparison, and the military thing. Spock in KW isn't as overwhelmingly committed, even though they are intimate because that command relationship is absent.  Interesting.

I like it, the pace is OK. I enjoy the companionable tone Jim has for Spock, even while he is bossing him around.

Author's Response:

I really enjoy that loving command attitude. Let's them both keep their distance, but at the same time is compulsory. May have to use it more.

I love this story! I love how beautifully in character the guys are and how Kirk is concerned but is rolling with the punches. I especially loved Kirk's diagnosing Spock's condition by the presence or absence of his pride; I think that's spot on, and it's not something everyone would have thought to include.


Author's Response:

I think I got Kirk more in character in this one. He doesn't try to plan ahead if he doesn't have enough information or control of the details. He just takes action and preps to take more action.

I really liked this, nice quick read, but not too short, a good "post-ep" and really shows the care Jim has for Spock and that only he can give and draw out of Spock. This piece also really shows how lucky Spock is to have Jim (and this is coming from a Spock girl) someone who cares for him enough to invest so much time and effort for his well being. IMO, this relationship it what kept ST going 50 years. Thanks for writing and sharing!

Author's Response:

They have such respect for each other. So much that they ignore feelings and pride when necessary.

I have so many story ideas at once. I need to get a saner life so I can write them all down.
