This is the first K/S slash I've read - and still my favourite. So touching, so intelligent, well written. The characters are extremely well developed and thought over, their actions and motives seem very probable. No false note here, no unnecessary words.

And it actually made me cry...

Great work. Thank you very much and please, please, write more.



Author's Response:

Thank you, I really appreciate you reading it. :) It was the first K/S I ever read, too - heh.

I waited with the review till rewatching "ST:TMP". I finally saw the movie several days ago - I can assure you that I was thinking about your story while watching and I think that from now on I always would. Everything fits flawlessly.

"Turning Point" and "Full Circle" still are my favourites on this site.  I read one or another once a week at least. I love both the style and the contents, the ideal proportion of angst and erotica.

Highly original and truly captivating. I just wanted to have a look at it and see if it's interesting, and eventually read it later, but, although I should work now, not read, I was mesmerized, couldn't avert my eyes from it till the very end.

Congratulations and thank you. I liked it so much!



Author's Response:

Thanks so much!  I think "I couldn't put it down" has to be the highest compliment an author can get.  :-)

Usually I don't like stories in which Kirk and Spock had met before five-years mission, but I decided to read it anyway because it was written by one of the best authors here. I'm so glad I did! It is wonderfully written, so moving. And I love the way you showed gradually building sexual tension between them.

Thanks a lot!



Author's Response: You're very welcome! I'm especially glad you read the story, seeing that it isn't your normal cup of tea (and your stated reason for that made my day!) and that it worked for you. I've heard that there's quite a few people not overly fond of this particular scenario but, I have to admit, it's one of my favorites. Thanks so much for reading and for your lovely comments!

Wonderful. Unusually moving. It was impossible for me not to cry.

Keep writing, please.



Author's Response: It's always great to hear that one of my stories has had such an effect. I'm so glad you liked it and, yes, I most certainly plan on writing more. Thanks for reading and commenting!

That was a really good read. I especially loved your Spock and a very moving moment of his losing control after all these years.

As always, reading your work gave me a great pleasure :). Thank you.



Author's Response: You're very welcome. Taking a character outside his normal bounds can be tricky, so I'm glad it worked for you. Thanks for reading and commenting!

I just fail to understand why loads of good and very good stories  here have one or two or even no reviews sometimes, while quite a lot of stories which are just weak, out of character or plain bad have much more. This one is another underestimated little gem, maybe not very original if you expected some totally new and mysterious reason for Gol years, but definitely elegantly and well written. The author certainly knows how to write, this prose has a flow to it.

Thank you.

A very moving story about almost lost chances. And, as the previous reviewer, I liked this vulnerable Kirk, hiding his true feelings and sharing them with a piece of paper only.
