Wonderful fleshing out of this favorite of mine. I've written stories like this, stories that fill in (perceived) gaps or further explore a plot point or relationship. Bravo, Greywolf!
thankee, sai!! *puts his paws in his sleeves and bows* this was one of those ya have to write it down cos it won't leave you alone things. *grin* Ishmael is still one of my all-time favourite pronovels.

Loved it! (Loved Ishmael too)
Y thank you!! Ishmael is one of my top 2 or 3 pronovels of all time. so good -- she's basically writing K/S in that one, even though she never comes right out and just *says* so, heh heh heh...

I never saw "Brides"--dunno if it got to italy--arrrggh--and me w a sneaky yen for Mark Lenard :9

uh, nice! i'm kinda a little iffy bout this, but it looks pretty good! keep writing.
You pretty much do need to read Hambly's book to make sense of this one. This is the bits that wouldn't leave me alone till I wrote 'em down.

This is one of my favorite pronovels from a time when these books favored tales about interpersonal relationships. Barbara's book was so good that I didn't want it to end. Glad you filled it out just a little bit more.
One critique--Aaron Stempel didn't have a moustache.
One hope--Since Mark Lenard played both Sarek AND Aaron Stemple (on Here Come the Brides, on which the past in this story is based), I had hoped that either you or Barbara had included the line, "Your face is so familiar, but I just can't place the ears." (=^D
Author's Response: Yeah, I really like this book. I'd never seen Here Come the Brides, had read this about five or six times before I found out about it. Barbara Hambly rocks!
