I've lurked for so long on this archive, I decided that it was time to emerge from the shadows.


I'll certainly get to reviewing some of the fantastic things I've read once or twice, and then the ones I've read a whole lot of times!  It will take a while.  I owe a ton of reviews!

Also, a big thank you to anyone who reads what I write and is kind enough to review.  It means a great deal to me.

I didn't even read the summary when I saw who wrote this!  I'm in for the duration of this one.  Starting off wonderfully, and am looking forward to more.  Love their rebooted banter for City on the Edge of Forever - so similar to the original but with so much more sass.  Definitely hooked.  As usual, I will be expecting to compulsively read future installments when I see them posted, and probably risk waking up late for work, or just arriving late to work.  Either way...it's so worth it. ~ RK



Author's Response:

Oh my gosh...you are so sweet. Writing banter might be my favorite part of writing fic! I am so happy you liked it.

I'm thrilled you're enjoying this so far. I'm planning to release the next three parts every two weeks, through December (that gives me a month to finish writing it). 

Please don't touch the Vulcans by museaway Rated: Mature Content (Teen) starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 15]

The "yes" is out of Jim's mouth before he can think about it.

Or, in which Jim spends two weeks on New Vulcan with Spock over Christmas because he has nothing better to do. 

Written for K/S Advent 2013.

Once again, saw the author and clicked to read.  Once again, was certainly not disappointed! :) Your writing is so superb that it is always worth the disruption to circadian rhythms and the increased likelihood of being late to work the next day! But I would gladly suffer those outcomes everytime when I see something new from you posted!  As usual, fantastic job! (Love smug-teasing Sarek!) ~ RK

Seriously, you are SO sweet. Thank you. That's really flattering. I'm so happy that you enjoyed this! And I'm really happy you liked my interpretation of Sarek. I hope you weren't too tired at work!

Carry My Heart by Cate Adams Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 57]
Summary:

Jim has always been drawn to his first officer in a way that defies his previous experience, but insists he’s never been in love.  Spock doesn’t understand the emotional response he has to his captain, relying on a definition that doesn’t quite fit.  The perception and realization of love is interpreted through the ending of one relationship and the beginning of another.

Nothing like shore leave...in a cabin...by "a body of water"...alone.  Any chance there's a fireplace in this cabin? This is a great start.  Will be looking for further chapters to this.  Bones is precious in this - not beating around the bush.  Loved him asking if Spock even knew how to make coffee, since it's "serious business."  This was the best thing to read right before bed...even though I should have been in bed before this.  So worth the tiredness I'll be experiencing at work tomorrow though.  Definitely worth it.  Thanks! ~ RK



Author's Response:

Oh yeah there's a fireplace!  I hear you about the reading late...many a day has gone by that I realize I should have put away the computer a lot earlier the night before.  :)  Thanks for reading and reviewing!  -C

Per Ardua Ad Astra by RowanBaines Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 5]
Summary:

His captain's counterpart was correct. The Empire’s corrupt and mercenary nature had placed it in an untenable position, and it was destined to collapse. It was only logical that Spock hasten its downfall, but to do that he would have to assume a position of greater power. He would have to become the Captain of the ISS Enterprise.

And for that James T. Kirk would have to die.

I swore I read this a while ago (maybe not that long ago, not sure) on Ao3...Go figure though, I forgot to bookmark it, too.  Glad this very interesting, well-written work popped up here.  Made sure to bookmark it this time!  By the summary I wasn't sure if I wanted to read something that implied Spock was going to go out there and murder Kirk, but I thought, "You know what?  It's Mirror-verse!  Let's read this!"  Glad I did, because this is a fantastic piece of writing! ~ RK



Author's Response:

I did post it on AO3 first, but I'm glad you found it again. I'm starting to think I should change the summary! XD I'm so glad you gave it a chance and enjoyed it, though! And thank you for your comment; it has cheered me up!

Reviewer: Raven Knight Signed
Date: 05/31/2014 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

I wouldn't change the summary, honestly.  Here's why: reading the summary, and not knowing about what would happen during the story, some people may think "No, not reading Spock killing Kirk."  Now, in my twisted case other than what I mentioned thinking, this crossed my mind: "You know...if Spock assassinates Kirk in this story, I'm curious how he'd do it!"  It's definitely an attention-grabbing hook, so I would keep it as is. 



Author's Response:

Thank you for the advice! It was something I was concerned about before I posted it here, but I think you're right!

Summary:

Jim likes to be in control, and that's the way Spock likes it.

Most of the time.

Well, what a lovely and hot afternoon treat to stumble upon.  Definitely loved the jealous Kirk section...Parts 2, 5, and 4 are my favorites.  The whole thing is delicious, but those were my favorite scenarios. ~ RK



Author's Response:

I absolutely love jealous Kirk! That scene was my favorite to write! That and the scene on the table! I'm really glad you liked it and thought it was hot!

Reviewer: Raven Knight Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 06/01/2014 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

I just reread this steamy-ness, and then realized that my last review was completely inaccurate in that apparently I cannot remember which parts went with which numbers!  *face palm* Must have been overwhelmed by all the yummy events going on!  So, I meant to originally say: Favorite sections are 3. Wall (jealous Kirk! yes!), 5. The Table (oh sweet deity-of-your-choice, yes!), and 6. Spock's Turn (yum, and aww).  Not that my mistype previously means I also didn't enjoy those other parts a little too much, but...this is what happens when you aren't totally focused when you review.  Okay, sorry to spam-review you! ~ RK



Author's Response:

You can spam-review me all you like! :D And I love that those are your favorites because they're mine too! 

Summary:

Six months into the Five Year Mission, the Enterprise has reached the outskirts of the known galaxy, and its Captain has fallen ill. With a growing sense of unease, and increasing desperation, Spock takes it upon himself to manage both the ship, and Jim’s failing health, determined to save them both.

Because Khan’s blood was never going to be a permanent solution.

Saw this was updated and dropped everything else I was doing to read.  I'm glad Uhura finally told Jim since Spock never would have.  And they were so close to discussing the proverbial elephant in the room...until Chekov.  Grr!  I agree with you: definitely sure Spock enjoyed Kirk playing with his hair.  ;) Looking forward to more. Thanks for the update! ~ RK



Author's Response:

Oh, well thank you! I'm glad you think it's that important!. Oh, I know, he wouldn't. Chekov = cockblock, i'm sorry to say! And yes, he definitely did ;D Thanks for reading!

Date: 08/25/2014 Title: Chapter 6: Wishing Only Wounds The Heart

Oh, this is quite excellent!  Very much hoping that Jim finds out that Spock and Uhura split as soon as possible, because this heartache for him is just killing his system.  And Spock just keeps refusing to take the opportunities TO tell Jim about it.  The last scene was so touching and depressing - especially the moment where Spock rejected the bond and it starts to die at his absence.  Definitely looking forward to more of this.  ~ RK



Author's Response:

Thank you so much! I know, the poor darling :( I always update within 2 weeks, so it won't be too long!

Never by Cate Adams Rated: Mature Content (Teen) starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 16]

Spock and Nyota have been bonded for almost three months, ever since Spock’s pon farr.  Unfortunately, their relationship is not as either of them wished it to be and Nyota is faced with a difficult choice.  When something never should have been, what does it take to recognize it?  And how hard is it to walk away and allow another to take your place?

I'll admit that I thought of skipping this when the summary mentioned a bond between Spock and Uhura...but I clicked it anyway, and now I am certainly glad I did.  This was such a heartbreaking situation for everyone, all of whom are honorable in their own ways.  What did me in first was the scene between Kirk and Uhura...but once she went back to Spock and his reaction to fulfilling her request...it was all over for me emotionally.  So glad I clicked to read this. ~ RK



Author's Response:

Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!  I was worried that this story would keep readers away because of the initial bond between Spock and Nyota-I would probably have been wary, too!  But, I still really wanted to write it, and I'm so glad it struck an emotional chord with you.  -C

WIP

Story title lifted shamelessly from Lee Ann Womack song I'll Think of a Reason Later. Actually, a lot of my inspiration came from that song, and was sparked by Arsenia's challenge Jealous Kirk. Rating reserved for later.

Author's Response: In his defense, Dr. SnP wasn't being mean on purpose. He was just expressing his devotion to his beautiful children. ;) I'm glad you're on Jim's team. He needs all the support he can get.

I almost want not to believe this chapter happened...but at the same time completely can understand Kirk's drastic reaction.  Although this line from Kirk "To be honest, I didn't read it..." may come to bite him in the ass?  That'd be something for sure.  Either way, looking forward to more. Hope this all gets resolved soon...and not in this separation via "requested" transfer...Grr.  ~ RK



Author's Response: He's kind of got the jerk bit down pat, doesn't he? I'm with you. Hoping he gets his head out of his @$$

I should be in bed right now...but I'm obviously not.  Did a last check before turning in to see what I'd have to make time to read for tomorrow...Then saw that you posted something new...yeah, let's just say your writing is usually not on the to do list of the next day. 

As for the story itself...I'm pretty incoherent right now.  Spent most of the reading of it fanning myself.  This whole scenario between them is so intimate emotionally, and so obviously and clearly shows the deep trust between them that it is...incredibly potent and comes across very effectively.  Awesome writing, as usual. ~ RK



Author's Response:

I saw this right before I went to bed, and though I wasn't able to compose a response just then, your wonderful comment saved me from my usual post-fic drop and I went to sleep happy!

Thank you for reading and commenting! I'm very pleased you enjoyed the fic and appreciated the dynamic I tried to draw between them. I wanted it to be hot, but it was also very important for me to capture the trust and love between them as well, so I'm glad that came across! =)

I thoroughly enjoyed this.  Unintentional matchmaker Sarek is awesome, and in character for him - how he kind of sidesteps what anyone else would blatantly just say - and Spock claiming it is due to his not quite understanding humans.  Oh, dear, Spock.  This was very well done.  And this sentence: "“You mean there will be,” Jim said, turning Spock’s theory into a fact – into a promise, one that Spock clearly heard." really struck me and made me pause for the 'turning the theory into a fact' phrase.  That is brilliant and beautiful all at once!  It shows how clearly Kirk understands Spock's way of thinking about things.  So this was great! ~ RK



Author's Response:

Thank you so much. I'm so glad you enjoyed this, and I appreciate your comment about Kirk understanding the way Spock thinks. Even though this is a light fluffy fic, I do try to keep them "real" and in character, so I appreciate that you found that it made sense!
