A deep, caring, tender story of befores and afters, of painful cuts and of the courage to go on and try to make a difference yet again. As always, splendid writing and thanks for sharing.
You clearly got what I was getting at, angelocustode. Thanks for your comments.

The horror of waking up and realizing that everything you had is gone. McCoy was suffering just as much. I'm glad that Spock reconsidered eating those blueberry pancakes. Having a memory of something that brings you joy and sadness at the same time is difficult. Perhaps, in this instance he's made peace with the sadness of that memory. I'm sure the moment he tastes those pancakes, he'll smile to himself and remember, the good times. Thanks for this my friend.
Dealing with any loss is difficult. Losing everything at the same time would shake the strongest individual. We can tell by the fact that Spock is now an ambassador that he did find a plan for his life so he did recover, but the path he took would be interesting to know, wouldn't it? Thanks, D, as usual for your comments

Some how this seems so right an idea for the immediate aftermath of generations. Spock set adrift, the fleet changing and incomp conning to the fore. The line about having no idea what he was going to do just grabs you and encapsulates loss simply
Thank you! I have kicked this idea around for a while, and this is the final of several derivations. To me, losing Kirk would certainly set Spock adrift, and having him admit it to McCoy just made the idea that much stronger. When faced with loss, I think a very normal initial response is to be overwhelmed and confused. How do I go on without this person? What does my life look like with out this person? Spock may be Vulcan, but he is human enough to have a similar response. Thanks again!

It's amazing how certain smells can bring back memories. In this case we see Spock remembering a wonderful time between him and Jim where they both are enjoying a breakfast of blueberry pancakes and then that same smell of pancakes comes out of nowhere with devastating results. Poor Spock, what he must be going through. Looking forward to the rest of the story.
I read somewhere once that the memory of smells is our strongest and most evocative response. That given, it would seem likely under the circumstances that blueberry pancakes would bring memories to Spock. I hope you will like the last chapter which should be posted soon
