Heartbreaking - duty, The Enterprise, Starfleet, their sense of self and yet, their love for each other...

They never chose the easy way, did they?

A beautiful, bittersweet story <3

A story I loved the first time I read it, and the second, and the third...

Melancholy, and a little bit of hope; a younger Spock telling Jim that they shouldn't; an older Jim always fearing Spock would leave him - again; and both of them so much in love and in need of the other... it feels just right, and I find it's a storyline that is one of the most believable to me - on top of everything else I love about it, your writing, the characterization, etc.

This has always been one of my most beloved stories, written by one of the best K/S writers in my eyes - and what happened to make Kirk desk-bound and Spock retreat to Gol is a favourite plot of mine, too ;-)

It's so heartbreaking, and their pain - over losing themselves, losing each other, losing the Enterprise... - feels so real...

*rushes to Full Circle to make me feel better*



Author's Response:

Ohh, I did like the depressing stuff back then. I think I'm getting soft -- I always want happy endings, now! Thank you so much for your comments.

That's the problem with good writing, and good characterization, and a good story.

When it hurts, it REALLY hurts (or, as Spock would say, PAIIIIIIIIIIN).

I really shouldn't reread this stuff, but you're too good a writer for me to pretend I don't want to lose myself in your stories, however heartbreaking.



Author's Response: Belatedly, thank you so much! And I'm sorry. *g* This kind of ow, ow, OW story is not my cuppa any more, but I guess it was once upon a time. It means a lot to hear that you fount it effective. Thank you!

Extra bonus points for all the beautifully depicted architecture - apart from the feelings, the sex, the political maneuvering...

thank you for this.

Wow, some powerful scenes in that one - in the ending especially... *wipes a tear*

Also finishing where you did, not on the ship with everything neatly resolved, is a refreshing, slightly disquieting move (in a good way!!!) that will make this story remain for a long time in my mind...

I had read that essay years ago, and found it spot-on - apart from all the reasons that make Star Trek on general one of my favourite things in the world, the K/S relationship, slash or no slash, is one of the most powerful, compelling, all-consuming I've ever had the pleasure of watching or reading about. So I read it again.

And then I rewatched that Dante video, and as always happens, I end up all teary-eyed...

I don't think I've often been so utterly heart-broken. That's quite a punch to the gut... great writing. Great impact, too.

I'll now go lick my wounds... thank you for reminding me how we can feel sometimes.



Author's Response:

Kirk, however, (re: your review of A Time to Receive) has some problems dealing with emotions, too.  In his own way, he's as repressed as Spock is - just hides it better most of the time.

Thanks for the kind words.  This story has always been one of my favorites.

As Orypeci wrote - but they DIE!

Your story is very moving, and all the more so since we know what happens next - decades of adventures, discoveries, death and rebirth, togetherness and being torn apart. But this moment stands in time, as a beacon of hope against all there is to come; something to be treasured.

That's one of the biggest appeal of ST, to me - the long, bittersweet lives they lead. You hit that nail right on the head.

*sniffles a little*



Author's Response:

Thanks so much.  I've always enjoyed exploring the emotional contradictions in Spock, the vulnerability he tries so hard to conceal. I'm sure that's why his character has had such appeal over the years.  We can all relate to that isolation and conflict in some way.
