I'm enjoying your depiction of Winona. She is such a tragic mess in so many Reboot stories, many of which are moving and believable, but I also like your depiction of a strong woman with apparently healthy relationships with her son and their extended (!) family. And I always enjoy your version of Sarek; his and Winona's mutual attraction seems very natural in this situation. Can't wait to see how their sons react when they learn what's going on!
Author's Response: Thank you! Lord knows I love me some good angst, but I also get a little tired of stories depicting women as the walking wounded. I felt like Jim had to have learned his leadership style from somewhere, and she seemed like the most likely source. And I'm having fun writing Jim as a bit of a mama's boy. As for the extended family-- my only defense is that most of it is first-hand experience coming from a big extended family myself. I modeled them after my own, just moved a few people around a little and took a branch from one side and grafted it onto the other. I've included conversations so far that are verbatim transcriptions of scenes in various aunts' kitchens, and there is more of that in the pipeline.

OMG - a new story from you! Happy, happy, happy day! So far I love the premise and your always spot-on characterizations and humor; I did the old LOL more than once. More, please!
Author's Response: More to come! I?ve got a decent buffer waiting for finals editing, so hopefully I won?t be drawing this one out too long. Thanks for commenting! I was wondering if any of my old chums would still be around!

OMG you posted a new work and the archive didn't notify me 😱
I knew those washcloths were going to be trouble as soon as Jim threw them in 😂
i love this, and it has chapters!! Thank you so much!
Author's Response: I was wondering if you were still around! It?s great to see a friendly... name I think it?s shaping up for 8-10 chapters, but it?s still a little early
