I felt so badly for Spock in this chapter. For me, it was relatable on a very personal level. It's hard to be an outsider and to be caught in between worlds like he is. I think that is one thing that I always loved about him as a character. It can be very difficult to navigate life at times, and the people you most want to connect with and share with can be the very assholes who don't understand or see what is needed. So, Jim, don't f--- it up!
Thank you for such an honest and personal comment. I had hoped to capture that lonely liminal place Spock occupies and to get feedback like this, I think it worked.

Some bittersweet moments in this one that made me want to give Spock a hug. Kuznetsov and Bones are wise people Jim should listen to and won't. Really good.
Some people, their theme is the song Big Yellow Taxi. Bittersweet is a good description of what I was going for with Spock. Thank you.

Tralnor and Sha'leyen are darling in this chapter. I've been rooting for them since the beginning. Christine was the farthest from darling. She needs to gtfo and leave everyone alone.
I agree, Christine is less than pleasant. Thank you for sticking around.

Lol, the plot thickens. You do know that when you finish this great opus that I'm going to have to read it all over again, don't you? But I know I'll enjoy it.
Sweet. Glad you're still along for the ride. Thank you so much for reading.

You could have called this story Obsession because that's what Kirk is. He should understand that he's really hurting himself the most in all of this. Humans get weird like this sometimes and at the point, I hope Spock decides that Jim sin't for him right now and they try again later in the post TMP era.

Kirk is a total basket case. You've got me wanting to learn more about Sarek and T'Lal going all Indiana Jones. Those would be fund adventures to read. These last two chapters really make me question if Jim and Spock will ge ttogether at all?

Damn! The chickens are coming home to roost in this chapter. How does this keep cranking up the intensity? Maybe seeing Spock this pissed off will get Jim to pull his head out of his ass?
Glad you're still enjoying this. Thanks for reading.

Interesting. It's good to see Christine is finally getting a smackdown. She's needed one for a long time. I'd wondered what happened to that necklace thingy Laura made and if it had been used that one time then got forgotten. And with Silvio, as gross as he is, Laura was was way too nice on him.

What can be said about someone like Tatyana other than she's right and some people shouldn't have families if they don't actually want them? It sure says a lot about where Laura came from to become the person she did. And the school thing? What the heck?

“The MacCormack family tree, as detailed to me by other humans involved in Celluloid Vokaya, is a broomstick with a decorative silk leaf stapled to the top.”
Had to stop and say that the comedy in this is so much fun. I laughed so hard at this. Well, back to rading the rest of the chapter.

I’m having the worst time navigating the site on my smart phone. So I didn’t realize I’m on chapter 69. But the Bill and Ted reference was awesome. I’m definitely going to have to read this from the beginning.
Since I haven’t said it: welcome to the archive. We’re glad to have you!!
I've given up trying to get this site to work on the phone. It's too frustrating.
I'm glad to be here, Ms Moxie09. I'd been a reader for years and years before I decided to throw my hat into the ring and am having a great time.

Okay Seltun is an asshole. And Chris O’Dell was the name of a girl who was linked to the Beatles. Funny seeing that name here.
I’m interested to see how this plays out one Seltun meets Spock.
You know, when I came up with the character name, the connection you brought up didn't even come to mind. Now that you've said it, I'm having a huge DUH moment. Strange how that happens.
The Krampus is a very appropriate nickname for Seltun. He's earned it.

The story of Tralnor’s wife was really sad. Though I laughed at the USC/SFA/UC Berkeley rival and the stealing of Zefram Cochrane’s Head as a prank.
Never underestimate the power of a college rivalry. . . (Tee-hee)

These movie chapters that are like self-contained short stories are one of the most creative ways I've seen someone do flashbacks for character backstory development. I like how it works to help Kirk come to some good understanding about Spock.
I wanted to do something that got the same sort of information across without doing too many flashbacks and also not going with the letters/journal entry/diary sort of approach.
