I applaud your ability to take on such a character from a first person POV.

Author's Response:

Thank you so much!!!!  Yeah, Kirk has a certain... je ne sais quois about him that's hard to capture sometimes.  He can be very laid-back with his speech, but then it's easy to get so comfortable with it that I want to put my own words in his voice instead of things he would actually say. :)  Thank you for reading and commenting!!

Ace story and I agree Plaid is awesome! 

This concept, a journey home as the chance to talk through the journey they have made over the last few months is a good plot device. It ties up loose ends. But what I like best is that it’s neither smaltzy nor overly Vulcan: by which I mean logic and fact.  I like the idea Kirk is a little scared of Sarek. I also like the idea that Sarek behind closed doors is a warmer character than his outer persona. You capture the concept of kids rarely having a adult connection with their parents.

Thank you so much for reading and taking the time to comment!!  (And omg totally, right?  Plaid is the greatest!!)  I really appreciate your feedback on the walking home parallel with talking about some of the unanswered questions from the films.  One of my proofreaders said something similar about it being a geographical journey as well as an emotional one... I just liked the idea of them being on their way home, but also being "home" to each other. :)  Lol I have a weakness for Kirk, and especially for him showing his vulnerabilities--and the few interactions he has on screen with Sarek between the series and the films seemed like a good place to tease out what could be apprehension/anxiety (which, of course, he's still happy to face because he loves his Spock so much!).  That conversation between Spock and Sarek at the end of The Voyage Home has always been a beautiful moment to me, it's sort of the first time we see Sarek being open with Spock himself about how proud he is of him (well... in his own stoic Vulcan way).  I've always loved Sarek/Mark Lenard but feel like that's one of the first and only times he's allowed to show the audience how gentle he really is. :) :) :)
