Love it! The action, the plot, how true it was to the series that it felt like an episode, the angst, the twist, the smexy times!! Brilliant, just brilliant! Totally looking forward to reading more stories by you. Thank you for posting this story LLAP

Loved your story. It was tense and fast paced. Spock and Jim were totally in character. I found it an interesting twist that Spock's pon farr had not brought them 'happily' together, but that it had been awkward and something they had moved past to preserve their friendship. Glad, of course, that they found each other in the end. Fun finish as well with the untimely interruption.

I remember reading this on AO3, back when you posted it there, but it's such a wonderful story that I couldn't resist the opportunity to read it again.
I love how well you know these two guys, how well you keep them in character, and how well you express it all. Some lines were so perfect that I read them aloud to my husband, even though he has no interest in TOS fan fiction. :-)
Some lines I especially loved:
[Spock] had been having careful logical conniptions over them all morning.
His crew was in trouble and he wasn’t there.
“Spock,” he said gently, urgently. That tone of voice had brought Spock around more than once. The fact that he and Spock had found themselves in situations like this often enough for Kirk to know what to do was a ridiculousness Kirk was going to have to think about later.
Spock had that look. The ‘treading close to secret Vulcan things’ look. Sort of closed off and fragile at the same time. Kirk had been on the wrong end of that look before. It usually meant things were about to get complicated, and things were already complicated enough.
Spock made a sound Kirk never wanted to hear again for the rest of his life.
So very wonderfully done!
