So glad to see this story posted. I loved it when I first read it back in 2019. The strength of the relationship of the characters is evident throughout. Parts that are special to me.
The scene with Kirk and Amanda and the camera. I think it would resonate with anyone with an aging parent. The impatience Kirk feels and sadness at diminished abilities.
I love that fact that Kirk wants to help, but feels frustrated not knowing how to do so. How he wants to respect Spock’s right to deal with his emotions regarding what is occurring in the manner he saw fit. But how he is clearing hurting for his friend. And then when he sees a way to help he jumps. “Go to her” and “Tell her what you never told her. Remember?” This makes me cry everytime. I think how Kirk has remembered all this time how Spock never could tell his mother he loved her and if he doesn't now, she will never know. And that Spock squeezing his hand in silent acknowledgement of his feelings.
I love that Spock feels comfortable coming to Kirk in the night. And that he acknolwedges his importance in front of Sarek using his first name.
Finally, to me, Spock's love for his mother shines through. That he, risks it all (e.g. possibliy the loss of his fragile rebuildt relationship with his father) to ease his mother's pain.
A wonderful love story.
Thank you!! I love knowing what parts of the story moved you. And that the relationships seem true to the characters we know and love. I worked hard on that, especially since I was trying to blend a 21st-century problem into the 23rd-century setting. I'm so glad it worked for you!
