Thank you very much for this story. It is wonderful having a different POV dealing with T'Pring and her trials dealing with Spock.
I have to tell you it has taken me a couple of weeks to finish this store. My husband went into the hospital on Jan 1 and now has been in rehab for the last several days. I have read this in bits and pices while tending to the care of my husband. It has been a great joy to be able to look forward to reading another page of 2 while he sleeps.
The detail of Spock's and T'Pring's early years was vey well done. Thank you for sharing your talent with us all. I hope the next story I choose will leave me with the same warn feelings this great story has. It's is one I will remember for years to come.
I am glad my story gave you a little comfort while dealing with a stressful situation in your own life. I can remember a year ago, my Dad was in the hospital. I gave my Mom this story to read chapter by chapter as I wrote it to help her pass the time. I first had to confess that I wrote Star Trek fan fiction and that Kirk and Spock were going to be lovers. While she was aware that I have loved Star Trek for 50 years, little did she guess about my views of their relationship. That said, she also told me she enjoyed the story T'Pring and Spock.
Thank you for commenting. I was sad that I lost most of the comments on my story when the archive crashed. Most of the people left comments when it finished which was just a week before the archive went down. Obviously, you don't come back to a story you read to leave a comment (when you think you already did). So it made my evening to see a comment.

As I watched the pieces of Kirk and T'Pring's' plan fall into place, I thought of Amok Time and laughed. Diabolical! I had to laugh and wonder whether things went as planned of it their plan is going to go down the toilet. Really enjoyed this! Thanks!
Well I always wondered why Doctor McCoy brought a neural paralyzer to Spock's Wedding Ceremony. It's not the sort of thing you don't leave home without! :)

I am really liking this story. I find it completely possibly in line with Canon. Your insight and detail is amazing. And I completely appreciate your consistent update of the story. I usually don't like reading WIP but you've got my hooked! Looking forward to the rest of the story.
Thank you for taking the time to write me. I too resist WIPs so I know the feeling. But be assure the story is done. I just am doing a final proof read each weekend before posting (and sometime I can hardly manage that before Sunday night). I couldn't take the pressure of having to produce new chapters to a one week schedule. Hope you enjoy the rest which does its best to stay true to canon while offering my explanation of what was going on.

Due to a personal deadline now met, I had fallen a bit behind in reading this ongoing story but managed to catch up yesterday. Your writing reveals deep textural details about the lives and thoughts of Spock and T'Pring which I don't recall having seen in any other writing. Now that Spock has had the courage to approach Jim I am looking forward to seeing how they manage to find their individual way to each other. Thanks for the chapter.
Thank you. Glad to hear my story is filling a niche that others have not covered. I did not recollect reading similar accounts, but it is hard to put your own touch to something with a fifty year history.

Your story has been an interesting one as it unfolds gradually. It's a really thorough representation of Spock's emotional development over a period of years, and I've been impressed by the depth of the process. I am looking forward to future chapters.
Thanks for saying so. Sometimes I think it is easy to forget that Spock had to grow into the person he became when we first meet him as the First Officer of the Enterprise. Hope you continue to enjoy the story.

I like your thinking on the bonding cutoms. Looking forward to the next chapter.
Thanks. I wasn't sure if some might find my views to be out in left field. But it seems equally odd to me that we think the entire planet of Vulcan does the exact same thing with no variation. Earth certainly doesn't operate like that.

Very interesting to read T'Pring's story, she was only the "mean girl" in TOS. But as always, there are 2 sides of the coin, and I like how it is explored here.
Thank you for commenting. I admit I spent many years thinking of T'Pring as the "mean girl". But, I've finally grown up I guess, and wondered if there was more to tell. Hopefully you will enjoy the next chapter where I introduce some aspects of Vulcan culture.

I am enjoying it so far. I like the way that T'Pring is curious and not mean.
Thank you. If you like her so far, so will continue you. When I was young I really thought she was horrible. How could anyone reject Spock? But this story will show you otherwise, I hope.

So far so good. I look forward to more.
Since the first chapter was so short, I do plan to put the second one out this weekend. Thanks for testing the waters.
