Really divine story, just the right touch of angst and hotness.

Kirk was just the right touch of confused and commanding - I loved it.

Um, I could do a lot of superlatives and hyperbole but I will simply say I like it, whats wrong with it? it's a great little story and I like that Spock is the one dealing with the child out of "wedlock" since most people would believe that Jim would be that person.

Of course I have to confess that I'm a little bit of a fan-girl for your work anyways, and at my advanced age that's a little bit embarrassing ;)

Jeeesus, so much angst I cried.  took the day off work cause I've been working 12 hour days and getting very stressed, this was kinda cathartic.

Date: 02/18/2012 Title: Chapter 12: The Enterprise Hilton

I have noticed that the Spocks' in your stories can be very coldly calculating at times and then they get so totally tripped up by their emotions when that calculation does not go according to plan or throws up information they wern't prepared for.

It would be very easy to feel really sorry for Zelania while forgetting to celebrate the pure unadulterated strenght of will she must have to survive and survive well.  If had almost forgotten this story and am glad to see it back - it's a lovely piece of work

Dear Spock by Miss Car Rated: Mature Content (Teen) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 147]
Summary:

Sometimes you can only tell a person how you really feel in a letter that they will never ever read. However, some things never work out as planned. How was Jim supposed to know that he accidentally activated the auto forward feature on his e-mail account? Stupid voice recognition software.

 

This is a collection of e-mails that Jim writes to Spock that his first officer is never supposed to actually read but somehow ends up reading anyway.

Matter of Choice by sunryder Rated: All Audiences starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 12]
Summary:

Jim Kirk runs away to San Francisco to find out more about his father, makes friends with Spock, pisses off the Romulan Empire, and crashes head first into a destiny he's not sure he's ready for.

Begins as friendship since they're far too young for slash, but we'll get there eventually

Hesitation by CMM Rated: ADULT (NC-17) starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 455]
Summary:

NOW COMPLETE!

This is in response to Tydomin's The King's Speech challenge:

I'd love to read an AU based (loosely!) on The King's Speech (what a wonderful film...)!

It should be set in a universe where non-reform Vulcan is the ruling planet in an empire, and the Emperor is Sarek.  Sybok is part of the family, and has just taken the throne of Vulcan (replacing an aunt or uncle, I guess). However, he is an Edward VIII type figure and will give up the throne to Spock, who is the only other heir.

But, problem - Spock is a reject from the family (due to his human heritage and his speech impediment, which is unheard of among full-blood vulcans) and has lived a lonely and anonymous life on Earth for many years. During that time, Kirk has fallen in love with him from a distance, and they are tentatively beginning a relationship.  Kirk, of course, does not know who Spock really is.

Eventually, Sybok abdicates and Spock receives the summons. How will the couple cope with the revelation? Will Spock overcome the obstacles in his path? Will a common human be acceptable as consort to the King? Spock has already been going to speech therapy just so he can say 'I love you' to Kirk, but of course it turns out that he will need the skills for a much farther reaching cause.

I want a story with a happy ending, and preferably using the TOS characters.  I don't mind what career Kirk has  - you decide.  Whether or not Amanda is in it is up to you, but if she is, I would think she would be a servant or something rather than the Empress. Extra points if you can make Doctor McCoy a convincing speech therapist!

 

And away we go.

I'm saddened to hear that you have had such a hard time of it lately, we recently had to agree to my partners father going into a home and I know how stressful it can be with a little bit of guilt regarding our own inability to manage.

I'd been thinking this morning on my way to work that it would be great to see how Jim was getting on and wondering if you would post and lo, there you were; Can Jaron be saved I wonder or is it all over for him too- saying it again - love your writing.
