Whoops, forgot to submit a rating with my review!

Reviewer: newaunty Signed
Date: 11/23/2013 Title: Sharing the Sunlight

Thank you for writing this amazingly complex and spellbinding series. I've enjoyed every word. I was waiting until I finished completely to review, now I wish I'd reviewed as I went, because after spending two weeks reading it, and another two weeks trying to work out what to say, the details are slipping from my mind.

The rest of my review will almost certainly container spoilers, so fair warning to anybody who reads it!

Your writing is excellent, it's easy to see you're a professional writer. Your characterisation is spot on, your spelling and grammar perfect (sounds basic, but it separates the pros from the amateurs) and you've successfully introduced and integrated new characters. I especially liked Irina Hunyady. And the word "hobgoblin" didn't appear once, which was a huge relief!

"Sharing the Sunlight", the first novel, is probably the one I remember least thoroughly. I think I read the the first part, skipped ahead to find the first sex scene, and continued reading from there (sorry!) Then after I'd finished the series, I went back and read the middle part!

I loved the humour in "Double Trouble" and "Primal Scream", and the first person viewpoint of "One Night". "Promises to Keep" was achingly sad, "Jagged Edges" and "In the Shade" only slightly less so. Thank you for writing a realistic Pon Farr - this is somewhat how I always pictured it would really be. I'd so like to see the next one, now that they're bonded, I imagine it will be much different and much more fulfilling. Spock's injury is so tragic because it was so mindless and unnecessary. Your concept of how the telepathic sense ties in with all the other senses sounds so right.

You write sex really well. One of my favourite authors said, in terms of how to write good sex, that sex scenes are about emotions, not actions, and you prove this to be true. More evidence that you do this professionally. I had a good giggle about the search for Spock's prostate - as soon as I read the words, ". . . shifts in gland size and position," I knew Jim was going to find it! I enjoyed your descriptions of the reality of a homosexual relationship, both the physical and the emotional/psychological adjustments required of both Kirk and Spock. And I understand you created the term Chenesi - gotta love the person responsible for that!

I found "Son of Sarek" very touching, especially Spock's relationship with Jamomi - I would enjoy seeing Jim and Spock become parents one day, perhaps adopting when they're permanently stationed planetside. I think Spock was born to be a father, it's something he needs to do, he has so much to offer as a parent.

"In the Shade", where do I start? I didn't like the whole story of Fahtima, I found it a difficult concept to swallow, mostly her feelings and motivations. I understand, however, that you had to engineer the return of Spock's telepathic abilities somehow, and this was the purpose of the Fahtima storyline. I'm so glad they did return. All the way through the last novel, I knew that ultimately Spock would be OK. Thank God he is, it would have been an unbearably tragic ending if not.

Version made my skin crawl. I felt his actions at Golgotharen crossed the line from unethical to outright criminal. I did like that Spock literally escaped though, and weeks later Versin hadn't even realised he was no longer there! A display of Versin's arrogance and lack of compassion - he dictates, almost unthinkingly, the future path of Spock's life, erasing Kirk from it because of his own prejudice, uncaring of the phenomenal effect his actions will have on at least two lives. Yet he takes so little interest in Spock's treatment or progress that he doesn't even bother to check before he issues another "update" to his family! Sluman and T'Braggia I liked a lot, though.

I would've very much liked to see the Enterprise's experience with the Graves Gravitational Mass. I kept reading references to it and feeling that I must've missed something. I wanted to go and look for it, this story that I must have somehow neglected to read.

Thank you for recognizing that in the twenty third century, Australia  hasn't fallen off the planet! Even if I wouldn't be caught dead living in Melbourne, thanks for including it on the planetary map!

Overall, I enjoyed the whole series immensely, more than I've enjoyed any other. I wish I had it to begin all over again. I've read your other K /S work, and I hold out hope that you may write something further. Thank you so much for writing this and sharing it with all of us.

“…I mean, does this mean that you can never trust me?”

“It would be unadvisable.”

That has to be almost the most heartbreaking line I've ever read between Kirk and Spock. 

Loved this story, so tender and sweet, and right up to the end I didn't know if Spock would get scared and bolt, either from the situation or the Enterprise. 

Thank you so much for writing this and sharing it with us.

This was so realistic! I also didn't expect anything like this from the title or even from the summary. 

Somehow this seems closer to what I think the academy must have been like for Spock.

Thank you.

Oh my God, why is this the only thing you've written? It's beautiful. Painful, and heartbreaking, because you know from the very first that Jim doesn't realise what Spock is saying - I cried so hard it took me three tries to finish reading it! But you use language so wonderfully, so evocatively - it was such a pleasure to read. Thank you.

I never would have thought of Spock and Tuvok together, but this just works.  I don't think I have the words to say why everything about this is so appealing, but the previous reviewers have pretty much covered it, you can take as written that everything they've said, I agree with!

We never get to see Spock from inside his own head- we know that he's been made to feel belittled and inferior by other Vulcans, but it is a treasure to hear him tell us in his own words.

Thank you so much for writing and sharing this.



Author's Response:

wheee!!  thanks a lot!  *happy dance* 

Spock will always be my favourite fictional character, I think (though lots of others are not too distant)  even as a wee cub, his story resonated very very strongly for me -- son of 2 worlds, accepted and at home in neither... yeah.  Glad you liked it!

Coming Home by Amanda Warrington Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 110]

I'm enjoying this so much! I don't know how I never found it before. 

I find it immensely amusing that anyone is worried about others "guessing" who older Spock really is. If they look alike - even very alike - people are likely to assume they're related. I don't think anyone is going to suspect that Sepask is really an older version of Spock from an alternative timeline 😅



Author's Response:

Glad you're enjoying it!  With regards Spock, I imagined that it would have been impossible for the Federation to cover up the whole Nerada thing, which means in this timeline, they were very aware of the idea of parallel universes way before they were in the TOS timeline (i.e. at Kirk's birth, rather than into his second year of the 5 year mission (Mirror, Mirror) at age 37).  That said, as you'll see later in the story, even when presented with evidence, some people still didn't figure it out. :-)

This is intriguing!  You have such a good imagination, how did you ever come up with this story?  I should be grateful the poison didn't blind him (yes, I've read some of your other stories already!)

Only at the end of chapter 2, I'm looking forward to how the rest of the story unfolds.

Now that would have been interesting, the poison blinding him ;-) I think I just imagined that first scene, of Spock being executed, and had to work out a story from there. It was fun :-)

I could not keep reading this because I couldn't cope with your punctuation errors. 

The word "your" as you are using it, is a contraction of the words "you" and "are", spelled "you're". The apostrophe replaces the letter "a". The word spelled "your" is a possessive pronoun, indicating ownership - ie, "this is your story, and you're doing a good job."

I'm sorry, but I found it so dislocating that I couldn't concentrate on the story.

Wow.  I waited until I finished this to post, because I wanted to appreciate it fully ( took me nearly a whole wonderful week, I made myself string it out!)

I kept having this story pop up when I did various google searches with Spock or Kirk in them, and I kept avoiding it, because AUs with Jim & Spock in completely different lives/professions/circumstances from "real" ST just isn't my thing.  Finally I got curious and peeked - and I'm so glad I did!

This story is terribly sweet and touching, and so very believable. Can't believe I'm saying this, but I found your characterisation of Spock to be exemplary. A Spock with these problems, and this lifestyle (living in "sin" with his fiance) shouldn't have anything in common with the Spock we all know, so therefore how cN he be "in character?". But he is!

You can really tell a great story!  Love the way it eased so slowly towards Spock's recovery & regaining his former life. Stonn sounds like a complete prick, by the way!

Your spelling and grammar are impeccable, which is really important - I'm so often put off by poor spelling and grammar - it sounds unprofessional and uneducated, and generally top goes hand in hand with poor characterisation and poor writing skills.  You write really well.

Thank you so much for writing this, and sharing it with us all.  Hoping to find you've written lots more good stuff!
